    I agree for the most part but she is 9 and she does get tired swinging a 28 oz bat after about 30 swings or so. Not sure what I am going to do
    yet.

    Good bat, but there are other 2 piece bats you can grab for that. I know some retro stealths are out there cheap or Makos are dirt cheap.
    Gotcha. Thanks!!

    Keep swinging. She'll grow stronger quickly. Add 10 swings every workout till you get to 100. Then when she starts the pre-season training, buy her a drop 10 and it will feel like a feather to her. Swing 10 with the wood, 10 with the new bat until the season starts. Then watch her crush the ball. My DD was the same age as yours when I started her with over under training. By the time she was 11 she was swinging a drop 3 100% of the time. Not trying to say she's special, it was all in the training and belief she could. Trust me, so can your girl, I've seen her swing a bat in the swing threads.

    so it will feel different, but if I can get it for under $100 is it worth it?
    If you get her a Silouhette, she might not want the Marucci anymore 😁. I just picked up a Demarini Bustos for $40 to use over the winter. The place we are practicing is usually pretty cold and dd borrowed a Bustos last fall during a tourney that never got out of the 30ís all day. Never complained about stinging her hands and it had good pop.

    Put a $62 bid on a 2015 31" drop 10 used Mako on E-bay. We'll see how it goes. Now that she is getting older, and hitting the ball harder, she probably needs to use her game bat less in BP anyway, and we take a lot
    of BP, so I figure it would be worth having a "beater" on hand regardless.

    Also have to remember, when its colder...balls go further...so some bats may hit better than they really do...haha.

    I think you did well Pattar, cant go wrong with an older Mako...complete tanks and do get pretty decent when you
    put thousands of hits on it. I always tell people to keep a bat like this around for bp. A cheapie bat you dont care about that
    can handle a beating.

    15 Mako was the first NIW bat my DD ever had and I won it on an auction. Take it from the dad of a kid that has literally swung every Easton composite FP bat since the SCX24B, put 500 “daddy swings” on it before she hits it. It will do wonders for the feel to her for you to soften it up some. Unless you just want her to hate it, lol!

    It is used so we will see how well broken in it is. Plus she usually hits a bucket with her wood first so any composite after that feels
    wonderful anyway

    Makos are one bat completely fine with being used
