Was this review helpful ? 13 3

Pros:  It is by far the best bat I have used. It has pop and shows to be 5-8 mph faster bat speed which helps at the varsity level. Great feel in the handle. I Like it better than the 5150 which was my last bat.

Cons:  Only hang up is trying to find it. Stores are afraid to stock bats not knowing what is going to be hot or what is going to be disallowed. Hopefully, in the next couple weeks they will have them in because it is time to buy High School bats!

Between this and the 2013 Mako, which will have more pop a the peak of their performance?

All BBCOR bats like the Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBVELO) and the 2015 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15MK) will have the same peak performance because of how they are regulated for safety reasons. The difference, and what you end up paying for with the bats, is the feel and durability of the bat. Durability determines how long the bat will last at its peak level.

Description for Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBVELO
The Rawlings VELO BBCOR: BBVELO Adult 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 and having great pop, 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. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
Customer Testimonial

I looked all over the web for this bat and everywhere I ordered it I was told it was in stock. Then two days later they would send me an mail saying it was on backorder. Your company was the only one that came through! I placed my order Tuesday night and the bat was delivered Thursday morning!! I couldn't be more satisfied. I won't order anywhere else. You're the best! Thank you!
