If you're a big hitter looking for the most a Slugger Solo can deliver than this bat should be on the short list. It's an endloaded single piece alloy with a massive drop 5 feel. The bat is stiff and packs a serious punch if you can square one up. However, this bat is not for the faint of heart. We thing the drop 8 or drop 10 are much more fitting than this bat, especially for the younger player looking for as much bat speed as they can muster. If you want a light swinging drop check out a bat like the Rawlings VELO. But, if you want big stiffness on a good bat, then the SOLO is your daddy.
