Pros: My 9 year old son loves this bat. It has good pop and is nicely balanced.
Last night he had a double up the middle and a triple off the fence to the opposite field.
Make sure your hitter is close enough to the plate, the sweet spot seems to be closer to the handle than the end.
I would guess that his teammates will be lining up soon to use it!
Cons: I cannot comment on the durability, as he has only had if for a few weeks.
It does vibrate some, but no more than any other model.
Pros: My 11u son has hit 3 out this year with this bat and lots of hard hit balls. He swings with confidence knowing that if he makes good contact, every ball he hits will be moving fast. The swing weight on the bat is really light and the lizard skin grip is nice.
Cons: If the ball is hit towards the end of the bat he gets vibration and not as much pop. You hear a mushy thud sound and know that ball won't be going that far. Pretty typical with a lot of bats I guess.
Pros: Lightweight feel and the ball jumps off of the huge sweet spot. Great price and seems just as good or better then the other bats in the dugout. I was hesitate to buy at first but it's definitely a good choice to pick one up. Mind you its a composite so you need a strong kid to reap the benefits. Wish Combat was not going out of business!
Cons: listed durability with 1 star since we have for only 3 weeks, wish they had 31/21 in stock
Pros: great cost for a really good quality bat, its been doing well for my son for machine pitch this year. a bat that I have a feeling he will be able to use all thru machine pitch and even into little league

Do I need to have my boy do anything special to make sure this bat gets broke in properly?
Asked by bjdayton
The 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 is pretty hot out of the wrapper, and you could use it right away. However, we feel the bat would benefit from about 100 swings off a tee initially. It is best to gradually work your swing speed up from about 50% and rotate the barrel about a quarter turn every few swings.
What is the difference between the pg4sl210 and the pg4sl110?
Asked by coach TD
The difference between the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 and the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL110 is the barrel diameter. The 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL110 has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter while the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 features a 2 3/4" barrel diameter.
What is the difference between this bat and the Vigor? Which one would you recommend for a 11 thru 9 year old player?
Asked by tom
The Portent G4 and the Vigor are very similar bats. The only difference seems to be that the Vigor feels like a slightly lighter swinging bat than the G4. Both would be very good options.
My son just turned 7. He is 45 inches tall & weighs 43 lbs. He will be hitting off of a machine at 42 mph but cannot use a big barrel at the park he's playing for. I've heard composite bats are the way to go but what do you suggest for him? What size & type of bat?
Asked by B's mom
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a youth barrel bat in a 27 or 28 inch model. Composite bats are typically going to feature a lighter swing weight feel and slightly larger sweet spot but for younger players they are not usually going to experience the benefits of these bats due to them not being able to swing them fast enough. We would recommend looking into a balanced bat that is a two-piece design to help reduce vibration from off-centered hits.
Why no reviews? Is there something we should know about this bat?
Asked by Goonzie
All reviews are generated by consumers directly. If there are no reviews pertaining to an item then unfortunately no consumers have rated or reviewed the product. Doesn't mean the bat is not a quality product as most will be sure to review a product if it does not perform well or hold up from a durability standpoint.
Will this bat be good for a 7 yr old in a 26/16oz? What's the difference in a junior big barrel or a youth big barrel bat, as long as the weight and length are the same?
Asked by art
This bat is well suited to a youth player. Junior Big Barrel bats are intended for coach pitch or machine pitch, and will not hold up long against kid pitch/higher velocities. Youth Big Barrel bats are designed to handle throw ball at higher velocities better than Junior Big Barrel bats.
How does this bat compare with Vigor -10 2017? I need a big barrel for my 9 year old power hitter.
Asked by julio
The 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 and the 2017 COMBAT Vigor are both one-piece composite bats with balanced swing weights. The slight difference between the two is the barrel length with the COMBAT Vigor having a slightly longer barrel length compared to the Portent G4. This difference in barrel length will help give the Vigor a slightly more balanced swing weight feel.
