I bought this for my 5 year old son. He loves it. It's super light and the shaft is a tad thinner than the adult model which works great for him. With it being thinner, there seems to be no loss in durability. He's cradling, passing, shooting and catching like a champ considering he's only 5.Pros:
For the price I think this is fantastic for a beginning youth player. I have no complaints about the set up at all.
Price, weight, durability and size. I am grateful they make a youth model.Cons:
More color choices? Otherwise, it's a great deal for a beginning youth player.
