Pros: Swings extremely light, but the ball absolutely flies off the bat. The "ping" off the bat will scare infielders to death. LoL. Very loud and wasn't expecting that from a -5. It isn't too far from the sound of the old blue and white Worth lithium. Not had it long enough to comment on durability.
Pros: I play 13-u and I love this bat. Im really short for my age (like 5 foot) but this bat is perfect for that. I use the -5 31/26 and its awsome. Unlike other bats its not extremely top heavy, so it only feels like -8. This bat is awsome and is a hit machine.

I have a 12 year old that is using a drop 9. Good contact hitter, gap hitter. Weighs 83 lbs, 5 foot tall. I'm looking at the 31/26 or the 30/25. Any suggestions?

I have some smaller kids on my 14U team. I am trying to find a bat that they can swing. We can only use -5 or -3. I am looking at the Rawlings Velo and the Easton XL3 because of the price. Which one would better suite my needs?
Asked by rich1015
The 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO (SLV5) Senior League bat would be the better option of those two if you are looking for a light swing weight. The Velo is more balanced whereas the Easton XL3 (SL13X35) Senior League bat is more end-loaded which will make the bat feel heavier in the barrel.
Is this bat approved for USSSA, and is it aluminum or composite?

Description for Rawlings 5150 VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SLV5
Increase your swing VELOcity with the Rawlings 5150 VELO! The 5150 VELO features an incredibly lightweight design and thinner walls to help young players develop their swing speed and hit the ball further. If a player is having trouble getting a bat around, it will negatively affect their mechanics and ultimately not allow them to hit for power. That's where the VELO comes in. 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. Thinner walls also allow for increased barrel flex that results in some of the best trampoline effect of any alloy bat in the game. The precision manufacturing techniques used by Rawlings give players the maximum allowable performance by a youth baseball bat. Maximum allowable performance, increased swing speed, and thin walls will equate to one thing: MORE POWER AT THE PLATE! As with all of Rawlings' premium bats, the 5150 VELO was developed with the help of Sci-Fly Technology. Sci-Fly uses Doppler Radar to track ball flight characteristics and measure the launch angle, ball speed, distance, and spin rate from the point of contact. This information helps Rawlings create a bat with nothing less than optimal performance. Rawlings: Maximum Performance Where it Matters Most on the Field! The 5150 VELO features the USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp and is approved for play. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
The bat met our expectations and my son was thrilled that Fed Ex delivered it on a Saturday, just in time for his home run derby.
