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

Does this bat have a good pop to it as far as sound? We are having trouble finding a good USA labeled bat. We purchased one and it sounds dead as a door-nail. Asked by #baseballfamily

With the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 being a newer release we do not know much about this bat pertaining to its performance or durability. With it being a composite bat it will feature more of a wood like sound. Since these new USA bats have thicker walls the sound off the bat will differ compared to the USSSA bats players have been using previously. Cameron Expert

I'm shopping for a player who is 4'8" & 91 lbs. What size would you recommend? Also, do you know the true weight of this bat yet? Asked by the legendary Deuce

We would suggest a 30" length for their height and weight. Any bat purchased will weigh about .5-2oz heavier than the listed amount due to factors like the paint, end cap glue, and grip tape adhesive not being factored into the listed weight, so the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA (US9T12) would fall somewhere in that range most likely. Kyle J. Expert

Is it the same composite material as the Quatro? Asked by Little Dawg

The 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 does not feature the same composite material as the Quatro. Cameron 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 USSSA. 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.
