Pros: i have played ball my entire life and was sponsored by some major label softball teams and when i heard their was a composite tball bat i had to check it out. after reading all the great reviews i purchased it from just bats with no shipping cost and received it within 2 days. i had my son swing with it before practice and while he wasnt hitting line shots to the outfield at the age of 4...the ball did seem to have more steam behind it when hit. i know you have to break in a composite bat to get its full potential so i had all the kids swing it at practice but so far havent seen any major difference. obviously the more stout hitters continued to launch the ball but the other guys kept hitting grounders albeit hard charging grounders. maybe i can do another review at the end of the season

The drop of the bat is the difference between the length and weight of the bat. A lower drop usually indicates a heavier bat. The higher the drop, the lighter the bat. You should always check your league rules, as there are some leagues that limit the amount of drop a softball bat can have. If you purchase a bat with low drop, you may want to balance that with a shorter bat so that you can retain a quick swing.
