Pros: This -10 2 5/8 barrel bat (29/19) is the best feeling bat out of the box that I ever felt. My 73lb eight year old fell in love right away. The bat also looks super cool. Took him to the park the next day to pitch a bucket of balls and noticed the benefits of the huge sweet spot as he is now able to take the outside pitch and drive deep to right. This bat has a lot of pop right out of the box. The balls he hit were all better than his EASTION S1. He loves the grip and the light swing speeds for a big barrel.
Cons: Stings more than a two piece. Does not have a great sound off the bat despite the ball carrying better than all others.

Can I get this bat in a 27" 17 oz. with a 2-5/8" barrel?
Asked by 93longhorn
The Combat B4 Portent (B4SL1) is manufactured in that particular size but unfortunately we are currently out of stock.
What's the difference in the feel/ performance of the 2 5/8" barrel vs the 2 3/4" barrel portent? Is one more balanced than the other?
Asked by hitter
Both the 2 5/8" and the 2 3/4" will feature a similar swing weight. The COMBAT B4 Portent (B4SL1 -10) which features a 2 5/8" barrel, would be great if you have barrel restrictions in your league. The 2 3/4" would offer a larger hitting surface, which would help give you a slight advantage over the 2 5/8" barrel.
Is this bat balanced or end loaded?

Description for COMBAT B4 Portent Senior League Baseball Bat: B4SL1 -10
For those players that started with a small barrel COMBAT - you will not be disappointed in the all new B4 youth big barrel bat. For those of you that have never experienced the COMBAT difference, here is what you can expect: a swing weight that is right on point, a sweet spot that's almost not even fair, and zero sting/vibration. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. It all starts with COMBAT's Localized Stiffening Technology that allows their engineers to lower barrel wall stiffness on both sides of the normal sweet spot, resulting in an enlarged Double Sweetspot area where absolute maximum performance can be achieved! The 100% composite, one-piece B4 Portent utilizes COMBAT's Blended Fiber Technology that blends several different fibers in varying proportions at carefully controlled angles to create a composite material that results in both resilient durability and increased trampoline effect. Separation Barrier Technology also allows this bat to be HOT out of the wrapper! The B4 Portent draws much of its durability from its Seamless Construction; meaning that there are not cuts or splices - just continuous fiber all the way around. Feel, Durability, and Sweet Spot. That's what makes COMBAT the preferred composite bat. COMBAT: For Players, By Players! The B4 Portent features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
