Pros:  First I would like to say my son is a smaller 12U player 5' 90 Lbs but strong for his size.My son Loves the finish and feel. Bat has a good balanced swing, it is ever so slightly end loaded. He primarily uses it as training bat for cage work. He doesn't seem to have an issue getting the bat around. We have only used it a couple of times.

Cons:  The barrel seems to taper quickly which to me has a smaller sweet spot than his youth model wood bat from Louisville.

While I realize it's a "composite" of woods - is this bat all wood?

The 2016 Rawlings VELO Maple/Bamboo Composite Senior League Wood Baseball Bat: SL151G will be constructed from maple and bamboo. This helps give the bat better durability and with a 90 day warranty from Rawlings, if this bat were to break within 90 days of the date of purchase they would replace it for the customer on a one time basis. This bat does not feature any sort of composite reinforced handle like some other "composite" bats.

I would love to know if there is a -5 bat in 33" or 34" available. This one stops at 32".

Unfortunately the 2016 Rawlings VELO Maple/Bamboo Composite Senior League Wood Baseball Bat: SL151G is a youth model bat that was only featured in the sizes of 29-32 inches.

Would this bat be considered legal for Junior League (Ages 12-14) play?

This 2016 Rawlings VELO Maple/Bamboo Composite Senior League Wood Baseball Bat (SL151G) features a maple outer shell for the barrel (bamboo core for the barrel). It also shows a "1.15 BPF" notation on it (just says "1.15 BPF", no mention of "USSSA 1.15 BPF" rating). Unfortunately, Little League doesn't have an official ruling on this bat. I think a decision on its legality would come down to your individual league.

Can this bat be used in a wood bat tournament?

The 2016 Rawlings VELO Maple/Bamboo Composite Senior League Wood Baseball Bat: SL151G is more than likely not legal to be used in a wood bat tournament. Since it is not a one-piece wood design it would require the BBCOR certification stamp and since this bat is a -5 it does not have the required certification.

Is this considered a wooden bat?

This 2016 Rawlings VELO Maple/Bamboo Composite Senior League Wood Baseball Bat (SL151G) is made with Bamboo and Maple material. It will definitely be considered a wooden baseball bat. However, it is referred to as a composite wood model because the multiple wood materials used on the bat increase the durability of the bat overall.

Description for 2016 Rawlings VELO Maple/Bamboo Composite Senior League Wood Baseball Bat: SL151G
Rawlings has developed the VELO line of bats to help players increase their swing speed, and ultimately their power. If a hitter can't get the barrel of the bat through the zone quickly, mechanics and performance will suffer. That's where the VELO comes in and helps to create MORE POWER AT THE PLATE! This SL151G is cut into a 151 profile from a billet made from dense Maple and ultra-strong Bamboo. Utilizing Bamboo for the bat's handle and middle taper creates 2 times more durability than previous models! And with tough and responsive Maple wood in its barrel, this bat delivers the best wood bat performance possible. The 2 1/2 inch barrel paired with the medium 15/16 inch handle and guaranteed -5 length to weight ratio makes this bat an excellent choice for youth players transitioning to heavier wood bats.
