I've been using prairie sticks bats for amateur ball for years. I've used other bats too, but find time and time again that prairie sticks perform as well or better than other, twice as expensive, brands. Both in pop and durability.
I found a model that I love and can rely on a consistent feel for that model year over year. i do prefer maple over ash from prairie sticks, but that's probably just personal preference.
Great bats, at an affordable price. Shipped on time to your door. Will definitely order again, and have recommended to many friends.
