I bought this for my 8-year-old in preparation for the new rules this spring. He loved it. Based on the price, I would say it is not a "high performance" bat, but for an 8-year-old bat, we do not need high performance / high price. Length and weight are the most important to his technical level. With the new American bat standard, I'm not sure how much a higher price bat is worth. With a length / weight ratio of-10, he gets fewer missed strokes, his favorite grip and graphics. At his level, I buy as much confidence as anything, so if he's excited about swinging, that's what really matters.
Drop 8 is the Best USA Bat so far if your kid can swing it.
By far, 719 is the best American bat my (just 9-year-old) son has played. 29 "conceding the ball 8 is solid throughout the bat. The linear drive and the well-hit earth will definitely scream out of this rod. The younger children on the team tried this and played well, but because they pitched faster, it was difficult for them to continue to hit lighter balls on time. I used it to play a few balls from the tee and was very impressed. Compared with every American bat in 2018, ZERO stings.
A great bat at the age of seven. Bought several vats of bats, up to $150, and tried to keep the swing level, as all bats seemed to be heavy and finally loaded. Decided to try the ordinary bucket bat, I'm glad we did it. The swing is horizontal and hard. There's no problem taking this to the batting cage and the batting line drive. The grip feels great, too.
The 2019 blows all the 2018 bats we have demoed and bought this year for our teams!
We just got the bat today, it was delivered earlier than expected, and my son used it in his game. Wow! Drop-11 made his swing a little faster, but not without strength. All the bats we use this season in 2018 are heavier than advertised, and children are hard to reach. Things are different today. Everyone who uses it likes the feeling and is able to connect. So far, there have been no complaints about bat bites. I just hope they can make a 26 "drop of 11 points for the younger children on the team." This is a good and cheap bat! Note-We used Louisville Omaha 27 (still a great bat), Rawlings Quattro 28 18, Easton Ghost X 28 18 & more. So far, this one is more than light years!
To make the bat work for the past two weeks. I have to say, America makes it sound like a stick. But we've had more than 1000 hits now. It's been different since day one. Bats reacted really well. My seven-year-old put the ball from home plate to the back fence. Trying to get a home run this season. Good bats. Good quality sounds unlike the Soviet Union. The price is good. But will return to ghost x between two seasons.
My son is 3 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 49 pounds. He is only six years old and is on the younger side of his 8U minor league team. He has been waving 15 ounces of 25 inches of old aluminum 21 inches of barrel bars. I've been looking for a longer, lighter, bigger bat for him, but most of the other bats are still too heavy. We considered Rawlings' threats 27 15-12 and Easton Ghost X27 16-11, but after testing his teammate bats, they seemed heavier than every swing. I think it's a bigger 2.58 barrels. The rate of decline is very misleading because most of these bats usually weigh 1-2 ounces more than the rated weight. The real weight of the threat is more than 17 ounces, while Ghost X is close to 18. That explains why my son has trouble controlling the bat every time he swings. We were very excited to see the SOLO 619 speed-13. It's like the very popular SOLO-11;, however, it has a 21-inch barrel, not just a 0.125-inch 25 / 8 barrel. This reduces the weight of bats by 2 ounces which is very significant while still achieving a larger barrel. Although my son's bat is 28 inches long, it is so light that he has no problem waving it. The 28 15-13 is rated at 15 ounces, but has a real weight of about 16 ounces. It's actually lighter than Threat and GhostX, but it's an inch longer. I was initially worried that a longer 1 inch length would be a problem, but the ballistics end cap made the bat very balanced and easy to swing. My son.
