Both bats are going to be high quality options. I would probably suggest the Stealth Flex for a player who wants the most balance out of a bat and wants to maximize their bat speed, while the Rawlings VELO would probably suit a player wanting a bit more power due to it's stiffer handle design and feel.

I was nervous about ordering a Christmas present (bat)for my son and called your customer serviece department. They were very understanding and made me feel comfortable ordering the bat by explaining your return/exchange policy. Bats have come a long way, are very expensive and for just seeing a photo, I was hesitant to order.
