COMbat Maple Backbone BBCOR: BACKAB1 Adult
Average Customer Review
The handle is much more durable than a regular wood bat, lots of pop, reasonably priced.
The plastic sleeve connecting the handle to the barrel broke loose within minutes of 1st use without the ball ever hitting the plastic. It wasn't worth the hassel and shipping cost to return it.The bat still works just fine.
This bat has great POP! I wouldn't've bought it if it wasn't $89.99 at my local store because of its Unique design. But Oh Man was it worth it! I have had this bat for my whole summer season (4 months) and haven't had a single problem with the piece in the middle breaking like that one guy said. It really does seem to be indestructible like they suggest. I have even used this bat in the cage. The quality of this bat is just as you would expect! I would shop around to find the best price for this bat (because in Canada it isn't very popular apparently) so you might be able to find a better price on this bat. Also, no one on my team wanted to use my bat because they thought it was super weird (with the backbone design - you can see right through the bat) BUT after one other kid tried it, my Backbone became the most popular bat on the team. I love this bat! I waited all summer to write a review to make sure. This bat will not disappoint.
It takes awhile to break the bat in. Basically what I'm saying is, after buying this bat. Go hit around 400 balls to break it in. I didn't see performance from this bat till 1 month into the summer. The grip at the bottom is decent, i used hockey tape to flare the bottom out and increase grip - worked like a charm! Make sure that you break the bat in first! I can't stress this enough. Go to a cage with your friends, and have someone soft toss you a ton of balls. You will feel the POP when the bat is finally broken in. Then, PERFECTION!

Why is the bat hollowed out in the barrel?
The COMbat Maple BackBone BBCOR: BACKAB1 Adult bat uses a high strength composite backbone that runs the length of the bat. The strength provided by the backbone means this bat will last longer, saving our customers money. Beyond money savings, the backbone allows for a better, more consistent balance and swing weight with a softer feel and reduced vibrations. It also means the bat is more likely to stay in one piece in the unlikely chance it does break, making the game safer.
