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?
Asked by Jeff
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.
Hi, I'm 13 years old and starting babe ruth. I had the DeMarini Vengeance and it was very top heavy and hard for me to swing. I'm 5'5" and weigh 90 lbs. Will this bat be the same in a 32 in 29 oz?
Asked by brown
The Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR: BB51V has a light swing weight and will be better balanced than the Vengeance.

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!
One of the great and surprisingly things were is that I purchased delivery for three day delivery and it came in two days. I was able to get the bat to my son in time for batting practice that same day. He was very happy with a big smile on his face to get it unexpectedly so fast. He said he hit some bombs out into right centerfield with it. Thanks for everything. I will definitely be buying from u guys again..
