Pros:  This BBCOR bat is like none other out on the market. I have tried many BBCOR bats and this one was easily the best. The balance of the bat is amazing and far better than most BBCOR's. The pop on this bat is BESR comparable. All of the coaches at my organization unamimously agreed this is the best BBCOR on the market.

Cons:  Grip tape is very good, but doesn't last very long

Pros:  It seems like every bat on the market is "the best BBCOR bat ever made!" and has "more pop than a BESR!" I can honestly say that this bat is the best BBCOR i have swung this year. I've used an Easton XL1 and an S2, the original 5150, a Marucci Black and an Omaha, and the 5150 velo is the best hands down. Swings light, hits like a 2 piece, but solid like a 1 piece. It's definitely worth every penny.

Cons:  It's got a pretty significant rattle for hitters who aren't as strong, especially when compared to the Marucci black. However, if you've got good bat speed, you can't beat the pop of this bat.

Hi, my 15 year old son has the 2013 5150 VELO, and the matte finish is pealing off is this normal?

According to customer reviews the paint on the Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR: BB51V Adult bat has peeled off in the past. This is not something that is suppose to happen.

Description for Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB51V
Increase your swing VELOcity with the Rawlings 5150 VELO! The 5150 VELO features an incredibly lightweight design and thinner walls to help players increase their swing speed and hit the ball further. The VELO is made from Rawlings 5150 Alloy that features unmatched durability that provides 10x more strength than traditional alloys. This allows Rawlings to make the barrel walls much thinner to produce a lighter swing weight. But that's not all. The 5150 VELO is also assisted by Precision Optimized Performance (pOp) Technology that lowers the swing weight and surrounds the maximum rebound zone with thin walls to create additional barrel flex. The precision manufacturing techniques used by Rawlings give players the maximum allowable performance by a BBCOR baseball bat. Maximum allowable performance, increased swing speed, and thin walls will equate to one thing: MORE POWER AT THE PLATE! A stiff handle design produces consistent feel so that players can swing for the fences each and every time up. Rawlings: Maximum Performance Where it Matters Most on the Field! The 5150 VELO is BBCOR Certified. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
