Make sure you check the warranty. I purchased this bat. It was a wonderful bat. It made it through 30 games and then cracked near the handle. It was well taken care of. Easton's warranty is only good for one year. They don't return phone calls, e-mails or letters. Figure on one years use. I paid $299 for a bat that lasted 30 games and is out of warranty. Such a fool. Don't be a fool.
