Many who have used and tested this bat gave it a 5 star rating. The parents were the happiest as most of them got a wink from their kids for the bat’s paint finish (look), light weight and swing.
Others with a small budget will gave it a nod . On the downside, other users did not give it a similar rating saying it doesn’t have a super amount of pop and that it vibrates a lot.
Generally you should often consider your hitting style, strength and league requirements when selecting your baseball bat. Big players tend to get more hits with heavier bats with added swing power while the younger, small or lighter players require a lighter bat for increased swing speed.
After considering several reviews and of course its features, we can say that the 2016 Demarini Uprising is without a doubt a great purchase for great hitters of light weight and for price range.
However, travel and comp players may not find it good enough since (this is one area that should be improved on in the next version) it is prone to denting. Otherwise it is great during off season.
