This is a good bat for the price. It is pure wood but has good connect and carry for a hard tennis ball and light tennis ball. It is only 2.1 lbs, so feather light. Shipping was prompt and I got my order the 3rd day which was fantastic. Do not expect the same with synthetic or tball. This bat is made for hard tennis ball. Definitely recommend for someone who is looking for hard tennis ball bat.
The bat is not made for playing with heavy tennis balls, please make a note of it.
