Pros: Just received this bat, so too early to tell how it performs but wanted to give everyone an idea of the true weight... since everyone seems to be having the same problem with players aged 5-7 and the new USA bat rules, I was excited to see a -12 that had the bigger barrel finally released. I bought a 28/16. The true weight is 17.5 ounces. For comparison my son has a Demarini Uprising -10 27/17 that weights in at 19 ounces that he could swing pretty well (and has awesome pop for an aluminum 2 1/4 barrel) but was a tad too heavy for him. Will 1.5 ounces make any difference? Not sure yet. I'll try and post a follow up after it's broken in.

Cons: None so far other than the typical weighs more than the actual printed weight

Pros: Weight is actually awesome. My 9yr old (10 May 29) just got the 30/18. Ordered late Monday and got Thursday in time for Saturdays game. Friday worked him out and he loved it. Game Day today went hitless, with bases loaded the lead off hitter asked if he could use it. Bombed a deep double. No "ping" noise off bat which is misleading but the ball really jumps off the bat. This evening we went and had BP and hitting the sweet spot is like GOLD!!!! miss the sweet spot you do get the sting! We've only hit for 3days but very impressed so far!

Cons: miss the sweet spot and you get some discomfort

Pros: My son was struggling at the plate his last 3 games. I got him this bat and he went 3 for 3 with a home run, double and single. He is very happy and loves the bat. The ball pops off the bat and the -12 length to weight ratio is perfect for him. This is a great product and would recommend to everyone

My son is 9 years old, 4' 6 inches tall, and weighs 71 lbs. He was using a 29'' during the regular season and a 30'' during the summer. Tables online say he should use a 30'', but coaches commented that 30 looked too big. Should we go back to a 29? Thanks. Asked by GV

Based upon your players information I would recommend going with a 29'' model. If you are wanting to account for growth a 30'' option in the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 would also do well. Max Expert

My son used his bat last night at practice before breaking it in. Is that a problem? Is it okay to still go ahead and break it in? Asked by Bry

While it is ideal to break in composite bats so that they reach their highest performance potential quickly, I would recommend that your player keep using his Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat (US9T12) as he normally would. If possible, he should try to rotate the barrel with each swing to ensure that the whole barrel is broken in. As he keeps using the bat, it will continue to break in and will reach its highest performance potential. Taylor Expert

My son is 45 inches tall. He currently has two 27 inch bats that he likes (-13 and -10), but neither is USA approved. Will the Rawlings Threat 28 inch bat be appropriate for him? I wasn't sure if it would be too long, or if 1 inch would make a huge difference? Asked by bosox

Given your player's past bats and current size, I believe the 28" option of the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 would be a great fit for them. Tyler Expert

Rawlings USA bats are leading the charge in improving batting averages across the nation. For the 2018 season, the Threat is inflicting fear into pitchers with its big barrel and bright cosmetics. With a one-piece, 100% composite construction, this model utilizes a carbon fiber barrel that improves trampoline and overall pop at the plate while offering a stiff feel at impact for further ball flight on contact. And with a lightweight, balanced design, the Rawlings Threat is the perfect option for younger players who are struggling with their swing speed. Let's not forget that each baseball bat comes pre-wrapped with a standard, tacky grip that enhances both comfort and control. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro!

This Rawlings Threat USA Baseball Bat (US9T12) features a drop 12 length to weight ratio, a huge 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, and the USA Baseball certification. With that stamp, this model is approved for play in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, Pony, and USA. Become a menace at the ballpark and buy one of these Rawlings USA baseball bats with free shipping and a full one (1) year manufacturer's warranty.
