Is it a good idea to choose a child's bat for an 8 year old which I assume has a narrower handle and a smaller playing surface on the blade?
If such a blade is selected, should it then have a slower rubber?
Thanks for your advice (Good Adult Learner bat) on a blade for me - I think a Butterfly Primorac and sriver 1.7 should do the trick? Do you think it's slow enough?
I think it is important that the young player has a handle that is comfortable and the bat isn't too fast. The size of the playing surface doesn't matter too much as long as the bat isn't too heavy. Go for a slower rubber to make sure it isn't too fast.
Regarding your bat, I think that would be a good choice for you. Right speed and good control.
