I recently bought this bat. it is good to play with tennis balls is very light weight about 1 lb and 10 ozs, guess because of fiber glass. The grip is good, we use it to play cricket in tennis court at our school. We have noticed that the bat has strong striking power and not sure if opposing teams will allow us to use this in a proper match. Anyway we are happy with it and use it to play friendly matches at our school and share the bat between both teams.
It is good for the price we paid and everyone liked it so we ordered few more for our team.
