Ordered online and received in 3 days! Weighed with a digital scale and the 29/17 came in at 17.2 oz. The reason this is significant is that the 2 other bats we looked at were -11 and -10 bats that actually came in at -9 and -8 respectively. Good bat balance during swing. I can update once we have had a chance to hit tonight.
