Pros:  GREAT bat. Didn't take too long to break in. Big Combat fan, tried the Grifter (dud) when the B1 and B2 were banned. B4 is better than the new CF5 and it is cheaper.

Cons:  All teammates are swinging it. Time for them to get their own.

Pros:  The B4 is true to Combat form. Because of the new LL rules, my son switched to the Omen this year. He did not like it as much as his B3 Gear. We just got this bat and he loves it. He is hitting the ball great and with authority. Well balanced unlike the Omen.

Cons:  Although the white grip looks cool at first...it's now more of a reddish white.

Pros:  Great bat--don't see a lot of difference between this and the B3 or B3 Gear--which honestly annoys me that Little League put us all through this. You will love the bat, great pop--all the kids love this bat.

Pros:  This bast is hot right out of the wrapper. Couldn't be more happy. Was extremely disappointed when B1 and B2 were no longer allowed by Little League. I honestly see no difference when my son is hitting. This is a great bat!

Cons:  White grip.

Pros:  WOW!!!! Very solid and hard hitting with great speed off the bat. My son hit about 150 balls today and all were rockets. Very sharp appearance and very durable. Quite impressed with this bat. He already has the B2, Da Bomb and it too is awsome. Love ComBats and will buy nothing else.

Cons:  Minor sting when hit off the end of the bat.

Pros:  Bought my son a CF5 last year for All Stars. It was a dud out of the wrapper, but it heated up as it broke in. CF5 is a fine bat, but wasn't sure he was taking advantage of the double wall construction. Just picked up the Combat B4 from here, and what the heck? He used a B1 for All Stars last year, and this thing is just as hot as that bat was right out of the wrapper. Does it blow the CF5 away? If you consider he's hitting the ball farther with every cut, then yes it does. Pile driver of a bat with amazing pop!

Cons:  none

Pros:  Awesome bat. I have the "B1" bat and it recently went on the illegal side for composite bats. For $219.99, I sure hope that this one doesn't turn illegal! Besides that, this bat has great pop, and also has an awesome sound! It's great and it's not even broken in yet! Buy it!!

Cons:  It Can chip easily,and it's white handle turns reddish- white.

Pros:  My 11 & 12 year old sons had been hitting with the Easton Omen for the past 8 months and loved it. 3 days before opening day this year the end cap popped off..Needless to say bad outing on opening day. Ordered this bat ASAP! (they don't make the Omen anymore) I've heard great things about Combat Bats so i figured we'd try one. AWESOME! Great pop out of the wrapper..heck of a confidence builder. Lighter than it says to be, and it's not broken in yet!

Cons:  Everybody wants to use it.

Pros:  My son is 7 years old and has successfully bumped up to thge B4 just in time for U-8 All Stars. The pop off of the bat is truly impressive. A combination of the bat and improved confidence are consistently helping to hit balls 20% farther.

Cons:  The white grip was white for one at bat. As long as it's functional, we're OK with it. The bat is a hit with the whole team and that stresses the kid out...

Pros:  Amazing bat right out of the wrapper.Just bought it 30 min before my game and first at bat, I crushed one down the line and got a double.This bat is not for bad but for good, consistant hitters.Great POP,and big sweetspot.

Cons:  Marks easily,and the worst part is that the bat gets thicker where the C is, and skinnier at the B4 and COMBAT sign.Grip is white ,so gets dirty easy.

Why was this bat discontinued?

All bats will eventually become discontinued when a manufacturer changes its product offerings. But this bat also featured the older BPF 1.15 performance rating which needed to be updated by the manufacturer after the 2012 season. The B4 models were replaced by the B4 Portent line. And now that line has been replaced with the COMBAT Portent Youth Baseball Bat (PORYB112). This COMBAT B4 Youth Baseball Bat (B4YB1 -12) was a great bat, but COMBAT has moved on with their product line.

Will this bat be legal in Little League for 2015? It has USSSA BPF 1.15 printed on it.

This COMBAT B4 (B4YB1) -12 Youth bat is listed on the most current Little League Approved Bats list (http://goo.gl/vaAV9R), and should still be approved for Little League in 2015. As of now, Little League Baseball does not require the newest BPF 1.15 stamp; just that the bat carries a BPF 1.15 certification mark. But I would absolutely check with a League Director concerning any bat legality question.

Is this bat 29 inches and does it have a 115 stamp. My Grandson lives in San Diego and the league requires a 115 stamp. Is the barrel 2 5/8?

We only show the sizes we have in stock. We do not have the COMBAT B4: B4YB1 available in a 29" model. This is a discontinued model, and we will not be getting any more in stock. It is a youth bat with a 2 1/4" barrel.

What is the difference between the b4 and the b2 reloaded? Is the b2 reloaded just the newest composite?

The biggest difference is the Separation Barrier Technology featured in the Reloaded, but not the B4. This helps the Reloaded perform at its best right out of the wrapper and it won't require a break-in period like the B4.

I see a lot of comments asking if the B4 will be legal in 2013, and it doesn't have the new stamp on it. Is it going to be grandfathered in for the 2013 year? If not I am going to have my son stop using it in training this winter.

The COMBAT B4 -12 is going to be legal in 2013. The youth bats do not require the new stamp on the bat.

I have a COMbat B3 Senior League 30"-20oz. What is the difference of the COMbat Pure Gear Senior League 30"-20oz. and the Rip-It Senior League 30"-20oz. Which one is better?

The COMBAT B3: B3SL1 -10 Senior League bat will be a One-Piece All Composite design. It will feature COMBAT's Variable Stiffness Technology for a Bigger Sweetspot. It will provide an Extra Long Barrel. The 2013 COMBAT Pure: PURESL1 -10 Senior League bat will be also be a One-Piece all Composite design. It will feature the same Variable Stiffness Technology. This bat will feature the Gear Technology for a better feel in the player's hands. The 2013 RIP-IT Prototype: B1310 Senior League bat will be a One-Piece R1 all Alloy design. This bat will have a barrel diameter of 2 3/4", where as both COMBAT's had 2 5/8" barrels. This bat comes with a 30 Day Love It or Return It Program from Rip-It. Play with it for a Full Month and if you're unsatisfied you can return it to RIP-IT and receive your full refund. This bat will feature an Acoustic Barrel which will make the bat swing with a truly Balanced Feel. All three models would be great selections for a Youth hitter.

How many hits does it take to break in the COMbat B4?

We recommend 150 to 200 swings to fully break in the COMBAT B4 or any bat with a composite barrel. The key is rotating the barrel each swing to ensure that the bat is evenly broke in across the barrel.

My son has had this bat for about 6 months and today when cleaning I noticed a lot of the paint is chipping. He looks after his bats. Is this an issue and would it be covered under the warranty?

I can tell you from years of experience playing ball that paint chips are a somewhat normal occurrence. This is something covered by the manufacturer's warranty, but I always recommend saving your warranty for when something occurs that will actually effect the performance of the bat. You can contact COMBAT at 1-866-266-2287 for warranty information.

What is the difference between the-12 and the-10

The -12 and -10 are referred to as the drop of the bat. You basically figure out what length the player needs to swing, and subtract the drop from the length of the bat to get the weight. Therefore, the -12 would be a lighter bat if you had the same length for both bats drops.

My son used this bat and it sounds different than the metal bats. Is that due to the composite construction? There is a definite sound difference, almost like a wood bat, that I notice. Is that how it's supposed to sound? We were using regulation Little League baseballs.

Since the COMBAT B4 is a full composite design, it will have a different sound than the traditional aluminum bat. Composite bats make more of a crack or thud type sound when hit and the aluminum bats make more of the traditional ping sound.

Does this bat need to be broken in?

Since this is a composite barrel bat, it will require a break-in. We recommend you take about 100-200 swings off a tee or soft toss. Rotate the barrel about 1/4 inch every few swings. Stay away from using a composite bat in a batting cage that uses yellow dimpled balls as they can damage the composite material.

Is the COMbat B4 equal or better bat than the DeMarini CF4? Thanks

Both bats are great bats. The main difference is the design of the bat. The COMBAT B4 is a one piece composite bat, which is usually preferred by most power hitters. A one piece bat will be pretty stiff and help with their hits more than a two piece, which offers some flex when the ball is hit. The DeMarini CF4 is a two piece design, so it is going to be better suited for contact, or gap hitters. With that being said, you can't really go wrong with either bat and the decision comes down to what kind of hitter you are and what kind of bat you feel more comfortable swinging.

My 11 year old son will be playing with a competitive travel team this year for 11U. They will be playing in Little League, Cal Ripken League and Babe Ruth League tournaments. It is my understanding that composite bats have been outlawed with these three affiliations. I could not help but to notice the "Composite Barrel" written on the barrel. In the reviews section for this bat, several customers have said that they switched to this bat from other composites because of the new rules. Is this bat legal for these three affiliations? I do not want to spend $200 only to find out that he can not use this bat. Thanks for your help.

What Is The Best Bat Size For A Kid Who Weighs 150 lbs And Is 5ft 5"

It depends on what kind of bat you need (youth, senior league, or adult). Based on his height and weight, a bat around 32 or 33 inches is recommended. The weight depends on what type of bat your looking for. If you need a Youth bat, then I would recommend something around 22 or 23 ounces. If you need a Senior League bat, then I would recommend something between 24 to 28 ounces. If you need an Adult bat, then I would recommend something around 29 or 30 ounces.

Description for COMBAT B4 Youth Baseball Bat: B4YB1 -12
Forget everything you've ever known about composites! The B4 is everything a composite bat should be, and more! The B4's ancestors were some of the hottest bats on the market. COMBAT has taken everything they've learned after the release of the B1, B2, B3 and B3 Gear to finely tune the B4 and develop the ultimate composite bat! Using Maximum Allowable Performance (MAP) Technology, COMBAT has created a bat with single wall construction allowing for a longer barrel length and lighter swing weight, resulting in MAXIMUM ALLOWABLE PERFORMANCE! The one-piece 100% composite frame uses Blended Fiber Technology where Aramid fibers (found in bulletproof vests) are combined carbon and fiberglass in varying proportions. The precise angles created results in more energy transfer to the ball and ultimately more trampoline effect! COMBAT also employs Variable Stiffness Technology (VST) to give the B4 a HUGE SWEETSPOT! VST works by increasing the stiffness in the handle, which consequently reduces vibration, and decreasing the stiffness in the barrel, giving the B4 what COMBAT likes to call a Super Sweetspot Size!! The B4 has an ultra soft feel that players will love and performance that will be talked about for years to come! COMBAT: For Players, By Players! The B4 is approved for play in Little League, USSSA, Babe Ruth, Dixie, Pony, and AABC. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
