Comments about DEMARINI WTDXBFP Bustos Youth Fastpitch Softball Bat (-13):
My daughter used this bat when she was 10 in both Little League and travel ball. It was a great bat to help her develop a faster swing since it is very lightweight. Alot of the girls on the team used it and also loved it. It is a good bat when they are starting out and when a $300 would be wasted on them. It got handed down to the younger girls and we never had a problem with it breaking after more than 2 years. It isn't heavy enough to handle faster pitching and batter starts losing control of it but great bat for beginner or girls that aren't quite as strong to handle the lower drop bats.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
