Pros: Great composite bat...we estimate that it has increased hitting efficiency by 20%...This is our third composite big barrel and our best..
Cons: None yet
Pros: My son hits great with this bat. Awesome pop and sounds just like the small barrel orange mako. Pop is probably even better than the small barrel mako.
Cons: -Paint chips easily (the same with all of these bats) -Unfortunately, combat is going out of business. Heard Easton is discontinuing the combat line, what a shame . This Maxum is my sons favorite bat.
Pros: Bought this for my 11u son. Hit a grand slam on his third at bat over the centerfield wall. Ball comes off the bat very hard!
Cons: None so far!
Pros: Ball shoots off the bat. Totally different carry off this one and his old bat. Good sweet spot. Even "misses" come off hard
Cons: none yet
Pros: My son is on an 11u AAA travel ball team that plays in four neighboring states. Since we purchased this bat, he has hit 5 home runs and his batting average went up tremedously. The bat has awsome pop and the ball comes off of it fast. I highley recommend this bat for a serious travel ball player!
Cons: none so far
Pros: great bat amazing pop my son who is 8 has tried all the top name bats out their and he loves his combat.
Cons: sad that COMBAT has gone out of business
Pros: great feel and pop
Pros: Bought the bat for my 8yr old son. He likes the way it feels and no vibration at all. Pop is getting better with each use, only had the bat for about 2 weeks so cant rate properly on durability!!
Cons: None at this time, we will see how the durability turns out.

Is this bat going to be legal for the year 2018?
Under USSSA rules, this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX210) will be permitted for all USSSA divisions of play in 2018 (except for the 14U division).
How does this bat compare to the 2017 Marucci HEX Connect?
This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX210) will have an all-composite design to it and a balanced swing weight. The Marucci Hex Connect will also be all-composite and be balanced, however, the Hex Connect will be a two-piece bat. That two-piece design would allow the Hex Connect to offer more barrel flex at contact with the ball (when compared to the MAXUM).
What is the benefit of using the 2.75" diameter bat vs. the 2.625" diameter bat?
A benefit of using a 2 3/4" barrel such as the barrel size on the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX210) is that it has more surface area to hit the ball in comparison to a 2 5/8" barrel.
Looking for a bat for my 12 year old son. He is 5'1" and about 115 lbs. I was trying to decide not only on size, but whether the COMBAT -10 or the COMBAT -8 would be a better fit? Is there an advantage to one over the other?
Since your son is starting to get older, I might recommend looking to the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX108) over this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX210). The reason I suggest the -8 size is because he will be required to swing BBCOR bats in high school and those bats will have a -3 length-to-weight ratio. Around 6th grade, it is good to start working towards the -3 bats. I think getting the the SL7MX108 in the 31"/23 oz size might be a good choice to start moving towards heavier bats.
Is the Maxum a much more superior bat to the Vigor line of bats and what are the differences if any?
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX210) is going to feature a much longer barrel than the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (VIGSL110). Another major difference is the Maxum is going to be a much more balanced bat than the Vigor. Those are the two big differences between the two bats.
What is the difference between this bat and the SL7MX110?
This bat has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter while the SL7MX110 has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
Can you please compare this bat to the Demarini CF Zen-CBZ17
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210 is a one piece composite bat with a larger sweet spot, so it will offer more stiffness than the CF Zen, which is a two piece composite bat.
Can I get this in a 2 5/8" barrel?
Yes, the SL7MX110 is the model with the 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
Why does Carter say that "Easton shut down the COMBAT brand and as of 2018 they will not be produced anymore"? This is not correct. They will continue to produce the MAXUM, per their own company's press release.
Unfortunately the COMBAT lineup of bats will be dissolved heading into 2018. Back on July 21, 2016 Performance Sports Group released an article that states "will continue to sell and market the current COMBAT MAXUM line of bats, but will immediately cease sales of all other COMBAT bats and product categories." Easton will more than likely incorporate technology from COMBAT's lineup into their own bats but as of today (2/27/17) there has not been word as to whether they will manufacturer the MAXUM for release in 2018.
Is there a temperature range for durability with a bat like this? Some of our games in the midwest are cold.
Really it is the same for every bat on the market regardless of material. It is best to use bats in temperatures above 55 degrees, especially composite bats like the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210.
I purchased this bat for my 9 year old son for Christmas. The barrel is starting to chip a lot. Is anyone experiencing the same thing? Is there anything I can do about this?
We are not aware of this being a common issue with the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210. As bats are used they will start to experience imperfections such as paint chipping but this will not affect the performance of the bat. The bat does feature a 12 month warranty but would advise using this one-time replacement for when the bat is defective.
I just bought one of these. If I have correctly interpreted the previous answer, then as of 2018, Combat bats will no longer be produced? If so, it is a shame. This was my sons favorite bat.
Yes, unfortunately Easton shut down the ComBat brand and as of 2018 they will not be produced anymore. They were very good bats.
If COMBAT basically no longer exists, how will the bat be warrantied?
Any COMBAT bats, such as the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210, that are advertised with a warranty will be carried out by either Easton or, if placed at JustBats.com, through JustBats.
What is the difference with this model compared to 2016 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MAXSL210?
The main difference between the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210 and the 2016 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MAXSL210 will be the colorway. Other than that these are the same bats.
If this is a 2017 bat, why is it discounted so much already?
Normally we can't offer lower prices on 2017 models due to manufacturer restrictions. However, COMBAT was recently dropped by its parent company, so we bought out a large stock of their remaining bats, allowing us to sell them at lower prices.
Do the SL7MX210 and SL7MX211 have the same performance characteristics? What are the differences between bats other than the drop of 10 and 11?
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210 and the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 are going to be very similar performance and the only difference would be the weights of the bats. With that said, a hitter would typically get more pop from the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210 due to this bat being an ounce heavier.
How many swings are recommended to break-in this bat?
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210 is pretty hot out of the wrapper. However, we feel it will benefit from about 50-100 swings
My son is turning 9 years old on December 12th and will be participating in a 9u travel league program. He is currently 4'10" and weighs 122 pounds, and has above average strength for his age. I am planning on ordering this bat with 31 Length and 21 OZ (-10). His travel coaches are telling me that this will be way to big for him but I don't think so. Curious to hear your thoughts on this.
Based on your sons height and weight, I would recommend the 30 inch, 20 oz 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX210, but it is all down to personal strength and preference.
