Pros: We needed a second bat and decided to give it a try. Only a week in but this bat seems just as hot as the 718 -5. Very impressed with this bat and it far exceeds the current competition with maybe an exception of the 718. Jury is out on which may be the best power bat for big sluggers for 2018 in our opinion, but my son loves it and has not complained at all about not swinging his 718 or prior Ghost Comp bat.

Cons: Cap design doesn't sound tight. Jury is out on durability and vibration if your son is not consistent at finding the sweet spot and staying through the ball. For that I'd rate it 2nd best behind the 718.

I wish this bat was available in a 33" length. Is it? Asked by fred a kopp

We do not carry this bat in a 33" length. I would contact Mizuno directly to see if they even make it in a 33" size. Kyle J. Expert

Is this considered a balanced bat, or an end-loaded bat? On one youth bat review website where it was tested it was described as end-loaded; but in the production description here it says "balanced". Asked by Bballmom

The 2018 Mizuno MAXCOR -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB5MAX is a balanced bat in design. The actual weight does tend to be about 0.5 ounces heavier than the listed weight. This may be why it was described as end loaded. Tori Expert

Is this bat legal in a Cal Ripken sanctioned tournament? Asked by Billy ball

This bat has the USA certification stamp so it would be legal for play in a Cal Ripken tournament. Kyle J. Expert

Mizuno baseball bats are the result of knowledge and a relentless passion for making a sweet spot that blows away the competition. If you're a believer in bat technology (which you should be) and are ready to bring science to the plate with you, then you need to start swinging the Mizuno Maxcor! For the 2018 baseball season, Mizuno has taken it to another level. It all starts with their unique, one-of-a-kind VP sleeve that wraps around the barrel and helps create additional backspin on contact for further ball flight during each at bat. Underneath the innovate VP sleeve, Mizuno utilizes their CorTech and HotMetal alloy core to ensure maximum performance, long-lasting durability, and an absolutely insane sweet spot size. On the other end of these baseball bats, the Black Onyx Carbon handle offers a stiff, traditional feel with essentially zero sting in the hands. If negative feedback were to sneak its way down, the Dynamic Damper connection piece ensures a smooth, more comfortable swing on contact. Not to mention, the handle comes pre-wrapped with a Supra-Helix grip that is designed to deliver the ultimate feel. Mizuno: Driven By Athletes. Crafted to Win!

We've ordered from justbats.com twice - early spring ordered a H2 Hybrid. It was misdelivered by Fed-Ex, but when I called Just Bats to tell them, they were willing to ship another overnight on my word that I would return the first bat if it ever showed up. I was impressed with that! By the way, Fed Ex found the bat and delivered it the next day. Just today - bat #2 arrived - a Baum Bat for summer wood league. We ordered on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend and it arrived Tuesday at noon. Quick for a holiday weekend! We will definitely order from Just Bats again.
