2016 Rawlings VELO Ash Youth Wood Baseball Bat: Y62VG
Bat is well balanced and light weight
Son loves the grip and the feel of the bat when it hits the ball compared to other wood bats
Pros: very durable
Cons: grip not the best
Pros: Price, weight and durability. I took a scale to my local sports store and couldn't find a 29 inch bat with a lower weight.
Pros: Great to see a drop 7.5 especially for those in the 13U range that are transitioning to the -3 bats at 14 and above. I ordered a number of 31 inch bats. They ranged from an incredible low 20oz to 26 oz. So they were not properly weight. But for a range of bats, I loved having the different weights. The bats are a great price and quality. Funny thing is that we had the whole team weigh their bats, from all makes and models, and 90% were not close to what was listed on the bat. So order a few at a time, weigh them, and use accordingly.
Pros: Bats held up perfect in a 43 team tournament. The Velo Wood Bats were provided to swing during the tournament. Players really enjoyed the feel and durability. The Velo Wood Bats will be provided again for the next wood bat tournament.
Pros: great bat, buy more than 1
Cons: no negative
Pros: this bat has a ton of pop and hits line drives all over the place.
Pros: Son loves the grip and the feel of the bat when it hits the ball compared to other wood bats. perfect for younger kids to train with in the offseason since its not so heavy.
Cons: none so far
Pros: Bat is well balanced and light weight
Cons: No negatives
Pros: Perfect grip for 7 to 9 year old baseball players
Pros: None other than My sons smile knowing he shattered his first bat.
Cons: Do not buy this bat. Shattered first use on all barrel hits. Wasted 40. Jacks for 20 minutes of hitting. I wish I could add pics to show you that there were no handle hits.
