This is the most expensive wood bat I have ever owned. It quickly showed seam mark dimples all over the barrel. Hard to believe it is really maple wood as advertised. Hit a ball off the composite handle and something inside gave. The bat now vibrates very badly and when I hit baseballs it is like hitting with a wet noodle. The balls just don't go anywhere. This coming from a player who is playing on four teams this summer and is carrying a .369 overall batting average. Have owned the bat for nine months. When I approached DeMarini for some help to replace this bat they quoted me their standard 90 day warranty. Buyers beware, you will not be happy with this bat after a short period of time. Should have gone with a Baum Bat instead.

        I recommen this bat but in my experience a aluminum bbcor is a little better then a wood bbcor bat but this is the best bbcor wood composite. and Yes YOU CAN USE THIS BAT IN HIGH SCHOOL. but it has to have bbcor on it and if you order it in baseball express it will be bbcor.

            This is a durable, end loaded bat with BBCOR pop. Larger sweet spot for a wood bat due to longer barrel of the 243 model but still much smaller than any aluminum bat. Excellent practice bat for a stronger high school or college player. You will need to tape up the handle or use pine tar.

              Comments about DeMarini Pro Maple 243 Composite Wood Baseball Bat (BBCOR):

              I needed a composite for the cages and to see how it worked in games too. Great bat for the cages, but it flexes too much on contact and didn't get that nice pop off hits even on the sweet spot.

                  This bat is awesome. It's much more durable than any other bat I've used. I use it for games and to hit pop flies to our outfielders. I've hit balls off the hands and it hasn't even flinched. Other bats would've broken but not this one.
