"Takes a while to get used to the two-piece construction, but it allows kids to develop the habit of having a level swing." (actually, I have no idea what any of this means, I'm just transcribing what my husband says. If I were writing this review myself, I'd probably mention touchdowns).
Overall my son and I are very happy with the bat.
I got this for my 10 year old son that is 64 lbs and 4' 5"... according to the size chart, my son is on the lowest end of the recommendations for a 30" bat. I was concerned it would be too heavy for him. He was using a DeMarini 30" bat before that weighed 18oz. The 30" Torq supposedly weighs 20 ounces. I weighed both the DeMarini and the Torq. The DeMarini was exactly 18 oz. The Torq weighed in at almost 24 oz... so a lot heavier than stated and a full 6 oz. heavier than the DeMarini. It definitely felt heavier to me... But I took my son down to Frozen Ropes the day he got it for a quick hitting session to let him break it in and get a feel for it... Then yesterday he played in a game (AAA Little League). He batted 3 times and got on base all three times with some really nice hits. All line drives which is unusual for him.The ball went further than it usually does for him and I think as he grows into it, he will be ripping it a lot harder. He is really not hitting it that hard right now.
IMPORTANT: So here is my advice to you for what it's worth. Look at the size chart (there is a link from the bat description). Find the size the chart recommends using your kid's height and weight. Make a note of the bat weight... in the case of a 30 inch bat... the stated weight is 20 oz. In the case of a 32 inch bat... the stated weight is 22 oz. Now find a bat that weighs the stated weight PLUS 5 ounces and have your kids hold it arm extended and count to 10. If he has trouble holding his arm out with the (real) weight of the bat you are choosing... hold off till he is a little bigger or stronger.
I will update this review at the end of the season.
