Pros:  This bat is extremely well balanced and has great pop. I've had this bat for about a month now and it still feels brand new, the only issue I have is the grip, it's rough on the hands/batting gloves (at least in my experience) and it tore on me after a couple weeks of use. A lizard skin would be a good quick fix to this nearly perfect bat.

Cons:  The grip wore out and tore on my model.

Pros:  My son had to jump to a BBCOR for next spring. Did some research and asked some other coaches. The Velo was highly recommended. Nice surprise; Well balanced, swing and hitting power! Not as traditionally dead for most BBCOR bats.

Cons:  Very loud when hitting a baseball

Pros:  I hit the Rawlings VELO and the Slugger 617 at a demo since both are composite end cap models. Both felt similar when swinging, but the two main differences I noticed was the great pop of the VELO and a much louder ping.

Cons:  NONE

Pros:  In my opinion, Rawlings bats in general are amazing. I have swung countless 5150's and Velo's and frm i understand the Trio's are great as well. This bat is a step above the others though. The ball flies off the bat and the carry is unrivaled. Whole team uses it, 5 bombs in 2 games and absolube missles in bp. The feel is the best of any bat I have ever felt too. Its not extremely top heavy as to where smaller guys cant control it and get it around but its not so balanced that the ball dosent carry. There is also great feedback when you strike the ball. When you square it up, the feel is unmatched. As with most alloy bats, when the ball is mis-hit, its not pleasent but that also teaches you to hit. Lastly, the burability is rediculous. My 5150 had been taking 150-200 cuts everyday for the better part of a year now and it just keeps getting hotter. Never had it break or chil. Simply put, YOU CAN NOT GO WRONG WITH THIS BAT BECAUSE IT IS WORTH EVERY DIME.

Cons:  Not a thing.

Pros:  This bat has successfully lived up to its older brother (the 2016 velo). Third day of hitting, I hit a 412 foot homerun with a 103 exit velo. Light enough to swimg fast, but heavy enough to have power behind your swing. Very balanced.

Cons:  None.

Pros:  See those 450 dollar composites?They should be ashamed selling those bats 150 dollars more than the velo. You can't get better than this. Great sweet spot size, amazing sound and pop, best balance, and this acoustic alloy really takes away all vibration. I've hit 70 mph pitches of the composite endcap with no sting. Trust me, I've done it tons cuz I suck. JK. This bat has top notch balance put up with the CF8(450 bucks) and I've swung both. Beats the Mako beast(450 bucks) in balance any day. The composite endcap does wonders for the balance. Overview: LOUD, light swinging bat with tons of pop with no vibration. If you can't take an end load and appreciate a balanced aluminum, this is for you! GET IT!!!!!

Cons:  Nothing!!!!!!!!

Pros:  This bat has a very light swing weight, and can be used for contact as well as power hitters. The grip is on the thicker side but it is very comfortable. I love the sound and feel of the sweet spot, and the pop is great. Never did I think the sweet spot was small.

Cons:  -Scratches easily (cosmetic) that's about it. If you're looking for faster swing speeds and want an aluminum stick, consider this bad boy. -Typical vibration like any other one piece bat, but I don't mind it because it helps me adjust for the next at bat.

Pros:  This bat has a great feel/pop to it. Ive put this bat to work in for many weeks of games/batting practice and i haven't had to put any lizard skin on it. The pop should probably be illegal for games. and I've only seen minor scratches on mine.

Cons:  None

How does the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR bat compare to the Cat 7 in terms of balance weight and performance?

The 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V and the CAT 7 are both high performing bats with balanced swing weights. One is not going to be better performing than the other, but the Velo tends to be considered slightly more balanced than the CAT 7 because of the composite end cap.

What wood bat profile would be close to this bat?

Unfortunately, it is tough to compare a wood bat and an alloy or composite bat. However, a bat with a 271 turn model would be the most similar. I would suggest looking at 2016 Rawlings VELO -3 Guaranteed Ash Wood Baseball Bat: R271VG.

Stuck between getting the new Velo and the Quatro. I am currently using a Cat6 and before that used a CF5. I loved both bats so the alloy vs composite argument does not matter much to me. Which one should I get?

Both bats are very high quality and will perform well. This VELO is arguably our best alloy bat on the market right now for BBCOR.

What is the difference between the 2016 model and this?

There haven't been many changes between the two other than cosmetics. The biggest difference is a slight improvement in balance due to some end cap tweaks.

What is the difference between the 2016 model and this one?

The main difference between the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V and the 2016 model, besides the cosmetics, is the grip tape. The 2017 model has a thicker grip tape to help reduce vibration from off-centered hits.

I hit fourth in the line-up with quite a few homers with an end-loaded bat. However, I would like a lighter feel to have a quicker swing speed. Would there be a difference in the possibility of homeruns because the bat isn't end loaded?

Theoretically, the more mass you can put behind the ball the further it could travel, so an end loaded bat could have more of an advantage in that regard. However, it really depends on what the player is most comfortable with. If you are more comfortable with a lighter swinging bat like the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V, then the bat speed generated from the bat could help create the most power for you as a player.

What is the best bat on market?

It's impossible to claim one bat as the all-around best bat, especially with BBCOR models where they are all regulated to have the same amount of pop and comply to the same exact standards. That said, some models do offer better handling, larger sweet spots, and other things to separate themselves, and this Rawlings VELO (BB7V) is an excellent bat that I'd rate very highly.

My son is 15 and I have noticed that his swing is much better with his ash wood Rawlings VELO than with any of the composite bats he owns. He has much more control and his batting avg. is better with the wood bat as well. His swing seems to deteriorate over time when swinging a composite bat. My thought is that maybe he needs the continuous feel and feedback the wood provides. I want to find him a bat that he can use in high school that is going to swing like wood. I've heard that the 2017 Rawlings VELO and LS Solo 617 could possibly be the answer. I would love your opinion on the matter. Also, if you have any other suggestions for a non-wood bat that swings like wood.

There are many great BBCOR bats on the market that will offer a one-piece design with a balanced swing weight. There are some bats on the market that actually weigh more than what the bat is listed at and this could be what is causing the issue as wood bats are typically within 2 to 3 ounces of the length of the bat. With that being said, both the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V and the LS Solo 617 are excellent one-piece, fully alloy bats with balanced swing weights. What most customers tend to like about the VELO is how well balanced the bat is. If you are seeking a bat that will feel similar to his current wood bat then the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V would be a very good option to consider.

How does the VELO compare to the Louisville Slugger 617 weight and pop wise?

Both the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7V) and the 2017 Louisville Slugger Solo 617 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBSO6173) are going to be extremely balanced bats and pretty comparable performance. The main difference between the two is going to be the Acoustic Alloy that the Velo features. It is a very loud aluminum.

Cameron Expert

Do you have any thoughts about a how a 32” end-loaded bat might feel compared to a 32.5” balanced VELO? Would it be worth adding the extra half inch or would that negate any gains in bat speed?

An end-loaded bat will certainly have a different swing weight feel to it when compared to a one-piece alloy bat featuring a balanced swing weight like the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V. Whether or not to swing and end-loaded bat or a balanced bat comes down to ones personal preference and what feels better. When considering whether or not to go with a half inch size, from example 33.5"/30.5 ounces, would consider how well your current plate coverage is and how much bat speed you can generate with a 33/30. The half ounce should not considerable affect bat speed and the additional weight will have a marginal affect on power. If anything, a half inch size allows a player to slightly choke up on the bat; that is where the advantage can be.

When comparing the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V and the 2017 Louisville Slugger Solo 617 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBSO6173 there are only subtle differences as both bats are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights.

As well, the composite barrel and composite handle will be fused together at a connection point. You could refer to the bat as a a two-piece bat. The two are going to offer a very different feel.

What's the difference between the 2017 model and 2016 model? Also, my son is a freshman in high school. What size BBCOR bat will be good for him? He's 5'8" and 130 pounds.

As for the difference(s) between the 2016 and 2017 models of the VELO, the grip tape is much thicker on the 2017 model to help reduce vibration from off centered hits and the colorway has been changed.

Which Rawlings model would feel most similar to the Trio model?

There aren't any Rawlings models currently out that are quite like the 2016 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBRT3. That bat is extremely balanced, as is the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V. The Velo is a one-piece alloy composite, so the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 may be a bit more comparable to the Trio.

What's the difference between the normal Velo and the Velo Hybrid?

This 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7V) will be the same as the "Velo Hybrid" that is advertised on some websites. The reason that another website would call the bat a "hybrid" is probably due to the bat featuring multiple types of materials.

Is this bat better for a contact hitter or a power hitter?

The 2017 Rawlings VELO BBCOR (BB7V) is a model that would be well suited to either style hitter. The well balanced style is a favorite of contact hitters, while it also sports a one-piece alloy construction which is favored typically by power hitters. This combination lets the VELO work well with all types of hitters.

I made my high school team for baseball and I need a very reliable bat. I was looking into the Easton Z-CORE White Out the 2017 or 2015 Rawlings VELO or the Louisville Slugger Prime. Which one is the best rated?

All three of those bat are very good bats and have been well received. Whether someone liked one over the other would be a lot of personal preference. The 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7V) has been one of the most popular bats for years now.

How would you compare and contrast the VELO and the CAT 7?

Both the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7V) and the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) are going to be very similar bats. Both are going to be one piece aluminum bats. The main difference that a lot of players notice is that the Rawlings Velo is going to be much louder due to the Acoustic Alloy. Other than that the two bats are going to be extremely comparable.

I'm 5'5" and 130 lbs. I am looking to see what size of bat I should get to improve my hitting. What size should I get?

Based upon your height and weight, my general recommendation would be to get this 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7V) in the 31" length. As long as you feel that you can handle the 28 oz weight of the 31" option of this Velo, I would recommend that size option of this bat.

My son has the 2015 VELO and loves it. He tried the 2016 VELO and still prefers the 2015. He said it felt lighter and better balanced. How does this 2017 compare to the 2015 model?

The pOp 2.0 technology of the 2017 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V allows for an increase in flex and pop compared to the 2015 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBRVB. Both models have a low MOI and an extremely well balanced swing weight. The 2016 model also features pOp 2.0 technology so the 2017 model is more similar to the 2016 model than the 2015 model.

I've had Rawlings' bats since I've moved to BBCOR and I love them. But what would you recommend: the 2017 VELO or the 2016 VELO?

I would recommend this 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7V) over the 2016 VELO as this 2017 bat has received a couple of upgrades when compared to the 2016 model. This 2017 VELO has a Silver Comp Lite End Cap that helps make the bat even more balanced in its feel. As well, this bat features Precision Laser pOp 2.0 technology that increases the flex and performance off the bat. Because of those upgrades, I would recommend this 2017 VELO over the 2016 VELO.

Description for 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V
New for 2017! The Rawlings VELO has earned a reputation for being one of the lightest and fastest swinging baseball bats on the market from year to year and the newest version completely backs it up. Never in the history of baseball have more pitchers touched 90+ mph so hitters have less time to react at the dish, and there's no time for error. If the game is evolving to become this fast, then shouldn't your bat be? Thanks to the VELO's Silver Comp Lite composite end cap that is fiber reinforced, unnecessary weight is removed from the end of the barrel, shifting the MOI towards the player's hands. If your increased swing speed or the awesome cosmetics don't turn heads at the ball field, the enhanced pop and resonating ping from the acoustic alloy surely will. Rawlings' acoustic alloy enhances the durability and is the loudest alloy on the market - the proof is in the ping! Not only does this VELO offer the loudest ping in the industry, but the precision laser pOp 2.0 creates a lasered groove through the sweet spot that increases flexibility and the trampoline effect. Extreme balance, an explosive swing speed, and massive pop are the three things that make up the winning combination the VELO offers. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro!

This 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7V features a -3 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, and is BBCOR Certified for high school and collegiate play. The one-piece alloy construction is offered in 1/2 inch sizes and is backed by a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. Purchase your VELO today with fast, free shipping!
