The K455 youth bat is perfect for those 10-11 year old players who have developed a little better control in order to avoid the inside pitches. It also gives them the opportunity to feel more like they are swinging a pro's bat.
For the younger youth (6-9 years old), the K455's modern design (faster transition from barrel to handle) makes for a great tool for establishing a big league swing.
