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.

Pros:  Love this bat, bought my son this bat for Select ball and the pop is amazing, most kids on the team have dumped the S1's and CF5's and are using his bat.

Cons:  Chips easily, even off of the tee breaking it in.

Pros:  The best bat. If your kids lack confidence at the plate then get the B4. Just bought it a month ago for my 10 yr old who plays 12u. It produces confidence.

Pros:  Great bat just got it today. I hit the demo bat in the cage and the bat is awesome it has a huge sweet spot bigger than the s1 or xL1 bats. If You hit the ball in the right spot it will go FAR!!! On this bat there is not a sweet spot on it because the whole bat is a sweet spot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I love this bat.

Pros:  Great bat with Great pop. I'm not a huge fan of Combats. I bought the B4 Little League bat for him last year and in one season, the bat was dead. Sounded like a pole when hit. But the 2-5/8" B4 is rock solid. My son's had it for over a year, using it non stop and it has just as much pop as when it was new. I plan on buying another one as soon as this one starts to go.

Cons:  None that I have discovered so far.

Pros:  I bought this bat for my son after trying out the CF5 and having mixed results and bat sting. My son plays for a travel team and his middle school team and this bat has given him even more confidence at the plate. He was struggling with the middle school team---new team and much bigger players but this bat has leveled the playing field! Extremely happy with the bat's performance.

Cons:  Price

Pros:  Good Pop right out of the box

Cons:  We got this bat as a replacement for a B3 that cracked. My son was excited to see that Combat Sports upgraded the bat to the B4 as a replacement bat when this came, Unfortunately this one cracked in only 3 weeks with light use. I have always liked Combat bats, but with 2 bats (B3 and B4) that have cracked and now useless in less than 8 months, I would not recommend this bat, especially at $300. Save your money, do your homework and review other bats that will last longer

Can I get this bat in a 27" 17 oz. with a 2-5/8" barrel?

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?

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 legal for Intermediate (50/70) Division. I have seen somebody on another team in the same league use this bat and no umpires have said anything.

The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League is not legal for play according to the rules. Composite bats must be stamped with BBCOR certification.

My son is playing in a 50/70 Intermediate Little League for 13 year old players. Is the Combat B4 Portent legal? If not, what are some legal 2 5/8" barrel bats (not BBCOR) that can be used? I guess they have to be alloy barrels for this league, but I am not sure.

The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League bat will be a one-piece all composite design. So, it may not work for your league. It is a great bat, so I would ask your coach or league official if a composite bat will be legal. Here is the most popular Senior League 2 5/8" bat: 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha XL: SL136XL Senior League. It is a one-piece all alloy bat.

Compare the 2013 Combat B4 -10 to the 2013 Combat Pure SL -10. My son loves the last 2-year Combats. He like the looks of the blue Pure over the Black B4. WHICH IS A BETTER BAT! He has good power and above average bat speed, line drive hitter.

The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 features COMBAT's Separation Barrier Technology which allows it to perform with peak performance from day one. The 2013 COMBAT Pure: PURESL1 does not feature this technology and will require 150-200 hits before it reaches its full potential. According to COMBAT, the B4 also features a slightly larger sweetspot than the Pure.

Tyler Expert

Reading the questions, I see you mention the separation barrier technology for ready out of the wrapper. However, you also mention to break-in the bat with 150-200 hits. Which one?

The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 will feature peak performance right out of the wrapper. However, to ensure optimal durability, you will still want to go through a break-in process. A full break-in of 150-200 hits may not be necessary, but I recommend around 100 hits of a tee or soft toss prior to facing live pitching.

Tyler Expert

How many times does the bat need to be hit to break in the composite? Is composite not hotter than alloy?

Typically, alloy bats are hot right out of the wrapper, as opposed to composite bats which require a break in period. I would recommend between 150 and 200 full contact swings with the 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League bat to break it in, rotating it about 1/4" after each swing.

Is the COMbat B4 Portent a better bat than the Marucci Elite?

The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League is a great bat. It is a one-piece 100% Composite bat. The Marucci Elite which is also a great bat is a two-piece with a Composite handle and an barrel with top grade Alloy. The Marucci Elite happens to have a huge sweet spot on the barrel which is a wonderful plus when searching for a bat.

How balanced is this bat? How does it's balance compare to the 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFX Senior and Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League bats?

All three of these models will feature very balanced swing weights. The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League bat and the 2013 Easton S3: SL13S310B Senior League bat will be more stiff because they are one-piece designs. The 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFX Senior League bat is a two-piece design, though it still features a balanced swing weight.

How does the Combat B4 compare to the Combat Bubba? Which one have more pop?

The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League bat will be very comparable to the COMBAT Bubba. The Bubba was made exclusively for COMBATsonline. Both bats will be available in -10 sizing. Both bats are 100% composite material. Both bats will feature COMBAT's localized stiffening technology (LST). Power hitters tend to love the stiffer feeling one-piece bats. Pop will be similar to equal. Both bats will feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. The B4 Portent will have separation barrier technology for hot out of the wrapper performance. Both bats will have the updated stamps and markings for USSSA. COMBAT will feature a 12 month warranty on both bats as well.

Besides barrel width, what are the differences between the COMbat B4SL1 (2 5/8) and the COMbat B4SL234 (2 3/4)? Most sites list the B4SL234 at substantailly less cost than the B4SL1, which makes me believe there must be more differences. Do you know why? Will you be carrying the B4SL234?

It doesn't look like we will have the 2 3/4" COMBAT B4 Portent in stock for another 2-4 weeks. Based on the information we have, the only difference is barrel size. COMBAT sets the price for new bats, so I would recommend contacting them regarding the price points. Their phone number is 1-866-266-2287.

The 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League bat will feel similar to the COMBAT B3: B3SL1 -10 Senior League. The swing weights will be more of a balanced feel. Neither bat will feel End Loaded. Typically, a One-Piece bat will feel more stiff then a Two-Piece which could change the overall feel if you are used to a Two-Piece model.

Which bat would you recommend for a 6U hitter: Combat B4 or DeMarini Vexxum?

For a younger ball player in 6U I would say the 2013 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXR Senior League would make more sense. It will be a two-piece bat with an Alloy barrel. The two-piece construction will help allow higher bat speed through the hitting zone. It will also require no break-in period with the barrel being all Alloy. The COMBAT B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 Senior League will be a one-piece bat with all 100% composite materials. This bat will require a break-in period of 100-200 swings. Hitting off of a tee or soft toss while moving the barrel all around during contact is recommended. This one-piece bat will have a stiffer feel during the swing through the hitting zone.

Both the 2013 COMBAT B4 Portent and the 2013 DeMarini CF5 will perform very similar. Both use top of the line composite materials and have excellent pop. The COMBAT B4 Portent will be much stiffer, better for a power hitter.

What bat has a quicker swing 2013 COMbat B4 Portent: B4SL1 -10 -or- the Easton S1 with the same weight .. and what bat do you think is better for a 9u power hitter.

The Easton S1 will have a slightly lighter swing weight than the COMBAT B4 Portent. If you are a strong hitter with above average swing speed, then the B4 Portent may be the better choice, but it really comes down to personal preference.

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!
