The bat has a great feel with amazing balance and a large sweet spot. In play it has a great feel through the swing plane and good feel through contact. The finish on the bat is top quality and seems like it will last through the abuse it will recieve. The JM14 is surly a bat for power hitters because of its size and also a good bat for contact hitters because it is well balanced. If you are looking forward to the best of both worlds you can not go wrong with the Trinity Bat company JM14 Pro Series Birch bat.
