My son has the 27/17 version of this bat. He uses the bat in tournament ball. It does not meet the new requirements for his leagues recreational division which is starting soon. The bat is great. Has a lot of pop and has held up well. I would say it is the best bat available for the coach pitch age group that he is playing in. Several of his teammates have Marucci bats and all are pleased with them. I highly recommend it. Let's just hope Marucci jumps into the USA stamped bat market. My son was upset to find out that there was not an option available. He is loyal to his brands for a young guy.
