People do rave about the Chandler bats! Thing with Chandler is that a 14 year old player gets the same high quality wood as the MLB player gets.
... and dad pays for it.
EDIT: but I will say this, his Chandler bat has lasted through many games this year. He's faced a few kids throwing in the 80-86mph range, but we are not talking about very high level HS, college or pro pitchers here.
He's used it in 50+ games this year and, I hate to say this as you know what will happen the next time he swings it, the bat hasn't broken.
