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.

Is it a big barrel model?
Asked by jjjjjjj
The COMBAT Portent XL Senior League Baseball Bat (PORSL210) features a 2 3/4" barrel diameter which qualifies it as a youth big barrel model.
How obvious is the end load feel? We would like a balanced feel for a 5 year old that is 42" and weighs 40 lbs.
Asked by chris
The COMBAT Portent XL Senior League Baseball Bat (PORSL210) has a balanced swing weight. You should not notice an end loaded feel.
My son is a contact hitter, will this bat be good for him? He is 4'4" and 63 lbs. What size would you recommend for him?
Asked by studsa
The COMBAT Portent XL Senior League Baseball Bat (PORSL210) is a one-piece full composite model. Typically for contact hitters, we would recommend a two-piece bat with a balanced swing weight such as the DeMarini Vexxum Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXY). For a player of his size, our bat coach would recommend a 28" 17.50 oz. model.
COMBAT is obsessed with making the "best bats" in the industry.
A product of the CE Composites brand, COMBAT entered the baseball and softball worlds in 2004. Since that point, the company has emerged as the fastest growing brand within the industries. Their bats have set a higher standard in all leagues and age ranges.

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!
