Pros:  This bat has great pop and it's extremely easy to hit the ball right on the sweet spot. The bat has a good sound to it and when you hit the ball it jumps off the bat. This bat also seems like it wont be breaking anytime soon, it has a nice sturdy feel to it.

Cons:  None

Pros:  Amazing pop and feel. Feels like you're swinging nothing. Bat looks sick as well. Good price, swung and felt better with Velo than I did Trio.

Cons:  None

Pros:  Velo is the way to go. Out of every bat I have used this is my favorite. It has amazing pop even in cold weather. It has an amazing feel unlike other bats, I feel like other bats now are very "clunky". What I mean is other bats unless you hit it on the sweet spot aren't as responding as the Velo. I have hit multiple homeruns and gap shots with this bat. It also is the most balanced bat I have ever swung.

Cons:  Grip is nice but has ripped.

I am 5'10' 165 lbs can hit with power is a 5150 BBCor better for me then a Demarini Composite BBCor

The Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBV3) and the Demarini Composite BBCOR models (not sure which DeMarini you are wanting to compare) are both great bats/manufactures. The VELO will be a one-piece alloy bat meaning it will be hotter right out of the box and stiffer while the DeMarini models will be a two-piece composite design, have some flex to it and will need a break-in period. Both bats are used by power hitters so it really comes down to personal preference.

What's the difference between the BBRVB and the BBV3?

The 2015 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBRVB) is manufactured from a VELO alloy that has better performance and an extended barrel with a large sweet spot. The Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBV3) is manufactured from the 5150 alloy and has a slightly smaller sweet spot and barrel.

Description for Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBV3
New! The Rawlings VELO BBCOR Bat! Ever since Rawlings released one of the first BBCOR bats on the market, they've been working hard to perfect the science behind creating the best BBCOR bat possible. The Rawlings VELO combines technology, balance, and low M.O.I. to help you generate ULTIMATE swing VELOcity! This begins with the VELO's Comp-Lite End Cap that is fused to the alloy barrel using Bi/fusion Technology. This composite end cap creates a lighter and more balanced feel at the end of the bat to increase swing speeds and lower M.O.I. It has been shown through testing that a 50-100 M.O.I. change can result in a noticeable increase in bat speed. The Rawlings VELO BBCOR is AT LEAST 200 M.O.I. BETTER than any competitor in a similar price range! Beyond just increasing swing speeds, the Rawlings VELO is a well-built piece of equipment. It features a one-piece design crafted from Rawlings' 5150 Alloy that has unmatched durability and trampoline effect. As a result of precision manufacturing 5150 Alloy bats are consistently hotter than other leading alloy bats and perform at the maximum level allowable by today's standards. Precision Optimized Performance (pOp) Technology is applied to the VELO to isolate extra weight into smaller regions on the barrel to further increase bat speed and eliminate the need for annoying rings found inside some BBCOR bats. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro! The VELO is BBCOR Certified and approved for high school and collegiate play. Free Shipping!
