Comments about RIP-IT -12 Air Fastpitch Softball Bat:
The bat felt good when I used it during the game. There was a descent power behind the bat but nothing that blew me away. After my first couple of game uses, the bat was making weird sounds when I used it, so I had to call and be shipped a new one. They sent the bat out immediately which was great but I quickly broke that one too. The outside of the bat became cracked and pieces of the softball were stuck in the crack. Definitely very upsetting.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
