I find it hard to believe the 5 stars reviews placed before mine. This bat failed to meet any of our expectations. It doesn't perform close to the original Hex or the Cat 7. My son (12U) wanted to get a different bat but I convinced him to get this one. I've researched every aluminum and went with Marucci because of their reputation. Hopefully our bat came from a bad batch and Marucci will inspect it for defects and exchange it for one of these 5 star bats people have reviewed.
