This is the BEST Prodigy yet. The hottest-selling youth big barrel bat is back again this season with a fresh new look and a new, stronger alloy. The Worth Prodigy Legit GX4 draws it's name from its legit performance and its new GX4 Alloy construction. Worth's GX4 Alloy is its strongest yet, which allows for the thinnest walls and shells for absolute MAXIMUM trampoline effect! If you've ever swung a Prodigy before, you'll notice a stark difference in durability as well. One thing that's stayed the same though is the HUGE 2 3/4 inch barrel. This creates the largest hitting surface in the game, so you can CRUSH anything that comes your way! At the end of the barrel, a Center Load end cap is designed to allow increased barrel flexibility. The taper to the handle is 30% thinner due to Whiplash Technology, resulting in reduced weight and increased bat speed. In addition, the Prodigy Legit GX4 features a balanced weight distribution for maximum control and consistency. This Worth bat is also proudly designed and manufactured in the U.S.A. Worth: 100 Years of Performance Through Technology! The Prodigy Legit GX4 features the USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty.
We bought this bat and our 7 year old swung it at the store. When we got it home the bat was cracked. Took it back, got another one, got it home, took the wrapper off and the bat was cracked (had not been hit with).The bat is really hot and an easy swing, but not durable at all. Worth was supposed to fix the problem last year with their bats, but obviously not. We buy a lot of worth bats for softball as well and have never had this problem. I wish it would have been more durable...like I said before...HOT bat. (Posted on 2/16/14)
