Pros:  Used the demo/prototype. Fantasitc bat! Heavy end for guys who want to hit homeruns. Great grip at the hands. One of the best bbcor bats i have ever swung. I think the sweet spot is enlarged in the barrel because almost every at bat i had i hit the ball solid even when i didnt make perfect contact. I recommend to all getting it! dont look at another bat. Get this one!

Cons:  Handle gets dirty quick.

Pros:  This bat has great pop for not being a $300-$400 bat. When I needed to get the most bang for my parents money, theis bat made all the sense in the world. I am lacing the ball over the field and have the piece of mind with that industry leading 400 day unlimited bat warranty.

Cons:  Black, white and red is the colors of our biggest rival.

Pros:  amazing pop right out of the package, and a huge sweet spot! I never regret getting this bat and it will last you a pretty long time. This bat gives you that little extra pop to hit it out of the yard, once you get one, everyone will ask to use it.

Cons:  nothing really, the grip is white so it gets a little dirty.

Pros:  Bought this bat for my son last year after much reading of positive feedback on various websites concerning this bat. It didn't take long before this bat was on everyones radar. The pop is crisp and distinct, no vibration or shock and large sweet spot is what i'm hearing from the kids. Now 4 of the 9 starters are using this bat and are hitting better that ever before. I definetly feel like this bat is a game changer..so, I just ordered another one. just in case...:)

Cons:  None....wish I had found it earlier

Pros:  For the money this bat has amazing pop and a really beautiful sound! I've hit well with this bat and noticed a general increase in power in balls that wern't extremely well hit. I've had it about 2 weeks and have a few hundred swings on it with no real chiping in the paint. All in all a great bat though and you can't beat it's price or just bats shipping and customer service!

Cons:  It does have a fair amount of vibration and on heavy BP days my hands were cramping towards the end. The end of the handel does have a fairly drastic taper that makes it almost to big for my hands, which are by no means small. (6' 210 lbs)

Pros:  I had this bat for almost two years and it's still in great condition. The feeling of swinging the bat is amazing and can give a great pop. There is no vibration when hitting the ball and the grip feels great. For me, it's worth $100.

Cons:  None

My son is 10 years old about 5.0' 110 pounds what size should he get

We would recommend that your son swing a 29" bat. As for the weight, I would use his current bat size and bat speed to gauge that. If he has fast bat speed with his current bat weight, I would recommend going up in weight to get more mass in the bat to help generate some power. If his bat speed is slower, then I would recommend maybe dropping some in the bat weight.

hi im 5'7 and weigh 147 pounds is a 33,30 to big

I would suggest getting the RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) in a 32/29 based on your height and weight but you could certainly get a 33/30 as well.

My son is 5 foot 5 and weighs 125 pounds. Is a 32 inch 29 ounce too big for him?

Based on height and weight, we would feel that a 32 inch size of the RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) would be too large for your player. We would recommend a 31 inch size and possibly a more balanced model.

Is this a good bat for an upcoming freshman that is 5'5" and 162 lbs.? Would the Easton S3Z be better?

Both the RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) and the 2015 Easton S3Z BBCOR would be solid options for a freshman baseball player. However, the RIP-IT Prototype is going to have an end loaded feel to it, while the S3Z has a more balanced design. If he's more of a power hitter, the Prototype would work well. If not, I'd lean more toward the Easton S3Z. It's a matter or preference.

I am 6 foot 1 and weigh 250 pounds. I am mostly a power hitter with good bat speed. Would this model or the DeMarini Voodoo DXVDC be better for me? Also, what size bat should I use?

Based on height and weight, we would recommend a 33 inch size of either the RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) or the DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC). Both would be a nice option for a power hitter as they are both similarly end-loaded. The difference would be the flex of the bat. If you like a stiffer flex, I would recommend the Prototype. If you like a bit more flex to the bats, I would recommend the Voodoo.

Little League approved?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) has a BBCOR stamp, meaning it is not Little League approved. Any bats that are legal for Little League will have a 1.15 BPF stamp.

I am a 3 spot batter in high school. I am about 5 foot 9 and weigh 135 pounds and have used end-loaded bats before and really like them. What I am wondering is if the 29 ounce will be too heavy?

Based on your height and weight, we would recommend a 31 inch BBCOR bat like the RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) which would weigh around 28 ounces. You may be able to use a 32 inch 29 ounce but it would be more of an adjustment with that end-loaded feel.

Would the Prototype or the S2 be a better choice for an all around hitter?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will feature a one piece full alloy design with an end loaded swing weight that is ideal for a power hitter. The Easton S2 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S2) will feature a two piece hybrid design with a composite handle and an alloy barrel with a balanced swing weight. This model would be ideal for a gap or contact hitter.

Does the paint chip ever? How durable is the bat itself? My problem with all the bats I have bought from JustBats.com is durability and it either having lots of scratches, breaking, or paint chipping.

The bats we sell like the RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) are sold exactly as they come from the manufacturer and are exactly the same as the models other retailers sell. That being said, durability can vary between different bat models based on the material used for its construction. Given the nature of the game, paint chips are always a possibility and denting or breaking can occur. For that reason, the bats usually come with a warranty for replacement if the bats break. This Protoype model has shown above average durability and has a great warranty if damage does occur.

My 17 year old is 5'10" and 180 lbs. Would the one piece Rip-It or the two piece Overlord work best for him? He has slower bat speed right now.

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) features a one-piece alloy design with a significant end-load. It does also come with a 30 day trial period. The DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) features a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The two-piece model will help his bat speed by providing additional flex through the zone.

What are some very balanced bats that you would recommend to a contact hitter?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will not provide you a balanced swing weight. From RIP-IT's offerings, I would recommend looking at the 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) as it is a single-piece, alloy baseball bat that provides a balanced swing weight. Another balanced option from RIP-IT would be the 2015 RIP-IT AIR Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503E) that has the hybrid construction (composite handle/alloy barrel), but still a balanced swing weight.

Does the 2014 RIP-IT Prototype have more or less pop than the 2014 Rawlings VELO? I want to drive the ball hard and far this year, and those are my two choices.

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will have very similar pop compared to the Rawlings VELO. The VELO will feel more balanced and help promote faster swing speeds. The Prototype ,ay feel slightly more barrel heavy. Both are full one-piece alloy designs.

Which bat is more end loaded, the 2012 Rip-It Prototype II BBCOR: PROB2 or the 2014 Rip-It Prototype BBCOR: B1403? How much more end loaded is the 2014 Prototype BBCOR: B1403 than the 2014 Rip-It Air BBCOR: B1403A?

Despite both bats being made from a single piece of alloy, the 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will be more end loaded than the the 2012 Rip-It Prototype II BBCOR (PROB2). In regard to your second question, it is often hard to exactly measure end load in amounts. However, the 2014 Rip-It Air BBCOR (B1403A) will be a very balanced bat. The 2014 Rip-It Prototype will be more end loaded than the Rip-It Air, but not by an extreme amount.

My son currently swings a RIP-IT 32/22 and has great results. However, our coach has told him as an 8th grader it is time to transition to a -3 to get ready for high school. He is 5'8" and about 110 lbs. The bat coach is recommending a 31/28. Is this RIP-IT a good choice for him? Is it normal to go down in length?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) has a slightly end loaded swing weight and is typically not the best option for a player moving into BBCOR for the first time. The 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) has a balanced swing weight and is typically a better option for a player that is just going into BBCOR. It is common for players to drop down an inch in length when they transition into a BBCOR bat. The weight he will be moving up to will be quite an adjustment, so the smaller size will make it easier.

How is this model different from the marucci cat 5 model? Specifically in feel an pop?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) and the Marucci CAT 5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCB2) are both one-piece alloy with vibration eliminating features. The B1403 is end-loaded, while the MCB2 is well-balanced. The MCB2 has a longer barrel for a bigger sweetspot and more control, however both bats are going to be very similar in regards to performance.

What is the better bang for my buck between the 2014 Rip It Prototype and the Rawlings 5150?

Both the 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB513) are nice options that are high performing alloy bats. If you like a more end-loaded feel I would go with the Prototype and if you like a balanced feel I would go with the 5150.

My 16 year old son, who is playing HS varsity, used the Louisville Slugger 2013 EXOGRID 3. How would this bat compare?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) is a pretty comparable design to the EXOGRID 3 BBCOR bat. The Prototype has a slightly end loaded swing weight, but it lacks the composite inserts in its handle like the EXOGRID features. I think this would be a good model if he was comfortable with the EXOGRID, and RIP-IT actually provides a 30 Day Love It or Return It Program, so you could have him try the bat out.

Would this be a good bat for me? I bat in between power and contact. I am 13 years old and I am 5 foot 9 and weigh 180 pounds. What bat would you recommend?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) would be a good choice if you like a more end-loaded feel. Usually, power hitters are the ones that will enjoy an end-loaded style. If you would prefer a more balanced design that will make the bat feel lighter, I would suggest the 2014 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403A).

My son 12 year old son has been using an Easton -5 Omen. We are changing to BBCOR. Is this bat in anyway similar, or is there a bat you can recommend as a good transition from the Easton -5 Omen to BBCOR?

The Easton XL1 is the model that replaced the Omen of years past. It features the same end loaded swing weight as well as the two-piece, fully composite design. The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) features the same end loaded swing weight of the Omen as well as the XL1, however a major difference is that the Prototype features a one-piece fully alloy design. The Prototype will be good to go right out of the wrapper, whereas the Omen and the XL1 both require a break in period before they will perform at their peak.

What's this bat like versus the 2014 Rawlings 5150? Looking at swing speed, balance, and performance? What about the 2014 Vexxum?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will feature a one-piece fully alloy design. The 2014 Rawlings 5150 will feature the same exact design. Their balance and performance will be very similar. The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR will be different with its two-piece half and half design. The handle will be composite, while the barrel is alloy. It will feel much lighter compared to the 5150 or Prototype BBCOR.

This bat is described as having an end-loaded feel to it. My son currently swings a 32"/29oz 5150, which is a very balanced bat. Should he move down to the 31" in this RIP-IT model since it has an end-loaded feel to it or stay with the 32" ?
