The large barrel, long taper and medium-to-thin handle with a tapered knob makes this bat very easy to swing and control through the hitting zone. The balanced design creates a very fast swing with a whipping action that is great for every hitting style and level of experience, including experienced hitters, younger players and hitters that are new to using a wood bat. This bat is cupped.
