"I serve as a Pitching Coach on the college level & my long time fungo broke during mid-season & I needed a good/well made fungo for the rest of the season & playoffs. The customized fungo I purchased/ordered is the best Ive had. It is very well balanced & the maple is strong & durable. I'll us Marrucci Fungos for the rest of my career. Im a Marucci believer. "
