My 6 year old loves this bat. Got it in birch, 27". I thought it would be too heavy and that he'd have to choke up but he swings it like a dream and I can't believe the distance he's getting on his hits. He hasn't touched his other aluminum or wood bats since we got this one. He loves using it as much I love pitching to him and seeing him smile as the ball screams past me. I'm an Orange County native and love that I can get top quality bats that the pros use custom made for my budding player. I'm sure we'll upgrade to larger bats as the little league seasons progress on.
