I just picked this bat up and got my first cage round today so the duribility is yet to be determined. One thing that is abdolutley amazing with this bat, that many others dont have is that if you hit the ball on the very end of the barrel the ball will still fly and wont feel dead. Its definitely a very flexible bat which I like. MASSIVE sweetspot, biggest yet. The sweetspot is comparable to most combat bats ( which are known for huge barrels & sweetspots ). The handle is thin and the sound to the bat is absolutley awesome. I recommend this bat to any power hitters out there. But beware of the end loded barrel.
