Pros: The bat is well balanced, with a huge sweet spot. The ball jumps off the barrel and travels the extra distance needed for the extra base hits.
My son and his 10u travel team love this bat. Nearly every kid on the team uses the bat, with base hit after base hit. Not one crack or dent in the bat with nearly a 1000 hits
(in games and batting practice) on the bat.
Cons: A little sting on the hands when mishit either off the end of the bat or near the handle. But this could happen with any bat...Just to help a little we put on an Easton PowerPad and it seemed to help with the sting.
Pros: I bought this bat for my 7yr old son and it is truly "hot out the wrapper"! We took the plastic off and I pitched a few to him and I almost got caught in the face with a line drive because the ball came off the so fast that I nearly misjudged it! Much better response than his Easton S1!
Cons: Recieved this bat (30"/20 oz) as a replacement for Combat B4 that cracked in it's second tournaments last Spring (not used in cold temps.). My son was out of a bat for three weeks. This one came with "no warranty" engraved on it. My son used this bat for three tournaments during the summer and it cracked. My son's 11 yrs old and weighs 80lbs. Not a big power hitter. We're now looking for a new bat for Fall Ball. It was an OK bat when he used it, but I think a cheaper bat would have done the same or better. I wouldn't recommend this bat to anyone. I paid $150.00 for the B4 bat and I don't feel I received much return on investment even with a free replacement bat.
Pros: My son loved this bat playing 7U and 8U ball this summer. He is 7 (47" and 49lbs) and swings the 27"/17 oz. The bat was hot right out of the wrapper, and he had tons of confidence hitting it. Several other of his teammates also liked the bat and abandoned their bats to use his. The bat is very well balanced for a smaller player. Has one of the best grips out there for a bat in this price range.
Cons: The paint did chip fairly easily and the knob sticker feel off but nothing that affected the play ability of the bat.
Pros: My son has a 30/18 and 30/20 and loves both bats...The 30/18's paint cracked just a bit but bat is still great...Plays 11U Travel Ball, 5'2", 124 lbs...Last HR was 300+ feet...Highly recommend this bat! Zero vibration or sting; well balanced and the black color looks great!
Cons: Paint cracks but does not affect bat performance
“Great POP, Huge sweet spot, CRACKED after 2 Tourn.”
Pros: This bat is HOT out of the wrapper. Sweet spot is as advertised...my son was making great contact and was hitting further and harder than he ever has, consistently around .500 for the first 2 tourneys.
Cons: Third tourney, The barrel cracked right in the middle of the sweet spot after he drilled a line drive off the wall. Going back for a replacement...another player tried my sons bat, loved it, ordered his own and his cracked in his 2nd tourney...great bat if they would SURVIVE...boys are 12u, about 5'4", 105 lbs, using 31" bats.

Is the 2014 Combat Portent XL PORSL210 really hot out of the wrapper or is there some break in time required?
Asked by The Gabe
Generally, we do suggest a slight break-in period. We recommend around 125-150 swings rotating the barrel a quarter of an inch each time. This will help loosen up the composite fibers a little bit. A composite bat's performance will increase throughout its life span, and the 2014 COMBAT Portent XL: (PORSL210) will be a fairly hot bat, however, I would suggest a slight break-in.

Which bat do u recommend for a 11u player a tpx vertex or a combat portent??
Asked by Kukks
If you are more of a power hitter, I would suggest going with the 2014 COMBAT Portent XL. This one-piece composite design with blended fiber technology, will be able to provide you with a lot of pop and bat speed. The Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex XL will be a little bit stiffer, incorporating a hybrid design and will be perfect for a contact/gap hitter. The stiff handle will also be able to provide maximum flex.
There seem to be different answers to whether the 2014 is the same as the 2013 (besides color) or has newer technology. Please clarify.

The 2014 Portent is the same price as the 2013 B4 Portent XL, and I'm wondering what difference there is between the two (other than graphics). Why did Combat drop the B4 moniker in 2014, or is this somehow a different bat?

Separation Barrier Technology for HOT Out of the Wrapper Performance
Description for COMBAT Portent XL Senior League Baseball Bat: PORSL210
COMBAT's new Portent XL is not just any big barrel bat. With it's enlarged 2 3/4 inch barrel, the Portent XL has a HUGE hitting surface and COMBAT's new FULL BARREL SWEETSPOT! Yes, you read that right. There is no such thing as a mishit with this bat, 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 sweet spot area where absolute maximum performance can be achieved! The 100% composite, one-piece Portent XL 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! SmartFlex and SmartPly technologies work together to make this the smartest bat ever constructed. The result is a continuous store-and-release monster that will allow players to think beyond the warning track, beyond the wall, and beyond the park. COMBAT: For Players, By Players. The Portent XL features the USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
