Which Bat should my son use omen,xl1 or b2? He is 4'11 115 pounds 11 years old
Picking out a bat comes down to the personal preference of the player and what type of bat they have had the most success with in the past. Out of the three, the XL1 is the most endloaded and best for a player with above average strength and swing speed. The Omen is the most balanced and would be best for a player who may not have the best strength or swing speed. The B2 has decent balance and is a good choice for a player who falls in between what's outlined above.
