Cons: It is composite so not to sure on durability, but so far so good.
Pros: I bought this bat for my 13 year old and he loves it. He went from a 32 - 21oz bat to a 33 - 30oz bat with no problems. Good Pop Lightweight Nice Lizard Skin Grips
Pros: great has nice barrel size and is composit has great pop i recomend it every where.
Pros: Way more pop that I would have ever thought. Purchased this bat because of the amazing sale price and my son is a 13 year old 8th grader so I wanted him ready to swing a BBCOR for high school tryouts in a few months. IN a scrimmage against a 14 year old team he went 3 for 3 with a homerun, a triple, and a single. I've never seen him hit the ball that far!
Cons: None as of now
Pros: A tremendous bat,,,,grandson says he has more speed and tremendous pop off the bat,,,,,his friends have used his bat during games and their parents have come to me to find out where to get one,,,,,they all are hitting the ball better than last year,,,,great product,,
Pros: Looks and feels great. Well balanced,great weight.
Cons: None so far.

Cons: None so far.

Pros: It has great pop. I like the grip. it feels good in my hands. I hit a bunch to deep outfield but I haven't got one over yet.
Cons: it rings my hands when don't make contact on the sweet spot
Pros: Amazing pop, good for those moving from -5 to -3. The bat in general feels lighter than many other bats I've tried. So far, I haven't noticed any durability problems seen with many other bats made by Combat. Overall, the bat feels great and it's just really fun to swing.
Pros: MY SON LOVES IT. HAS GOTTEN A FEW GREAT HITS SO FAR IN THE FIRST WEEK.
Cons: NONE YET

Pros: Lots of pop, very balanced, and great lizard skin gip
Pros: overall its a great bat and when i conect with the ball it flys
Cons: non so far
Pros: Light and Balanced. After swinging a end-loaded bat for two years, my son decided to go back to a balanced bat. This, combined with the balance of the bat, makes it feel really quick through the hitting zone. Big Sweet Spot. Very forgiving for miss-hits. During a game last week, my son got under a ball that should have been an shallow left can of corn. This ball drove the left fielder back 20 yards for a sac fly. If he had got this squarely, it would have been incredible. Highly recommend! And at 99 dollars, it is a steal.
Cons: None yet.
Pros: good pop
Cons: every time I swing I drop my shoulder and pop the ball open and the bat feels heavy
Pros: I bought this bat because I need a BBCOR bat for High School. I searched around for a good bat with a good price and this one caught my eye. Justbats.com delivered it super fast! It took only 5 days on free shipping. This bat was hot right out of the wrapper.
Cons: On the first few swings, the bat kind of makes a thud sound instead of the normal composite crack of the bat sound. After that, it sounded fresh as can be.
Pros: I took this bat to the batting cages next to our local Little League fields. On my third swing, I hit it and it went up thru the cage and kept going another 235+ feet. It would have gone at least 320+ but got slowed down on the way out of the cage. The bat sounds crisp and fresh.
Cons: Everyone will think that the baseballs are juiced when they see me hit on the field.
Pros: Great bat, has a lot of pop. The bat is very comfortable to hold and it comes with lizard skin already. The bat is balanced....it is not barrel heavy or handle heavy.
Cons: When you hit it off the end or get jammed it stings for a bit.
Pros: My son loves this bat. Great price for a composite and well worth it. He is a big hitting high school outfielder and this bat will certainly add to his home run count. Looking forward to using it this season.
Pros: I prefer this bat over the $400 bats that my teammates own because it has a huge barrel very good pop and rarely stings.
Cons: It makes a slightly different sound than most composite bats but you get used to it.

(1) How does the one-piece, all-composite design differ from the two piece bats (other than more vibration)? (2) Does it still get hotter with time or is it best as soon as it is broken in?
(1) A one-piece, all-composite bat like this 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (VG2AB103) will not flex in the barrel at contact like a two-piece bat. The flex does not provide a performance advantage or disadvantage, but some players prefer one of the feels over the other. (2) This VIGOR will require a break-in period to get to the highest performance level. However, I wouldn't say that the bat will continue to increase in performance after the break-in has been completed. A break-in usually only takes a few days of consistent use.
Is the -3 just as good as the -5?

One can certainly use the bat in colder temps but typically a composite bat will not perform as well and can experience quicker durability issues in colder weather due to the composition of the baseball becoming more dense.
My 10 year old grandson is 58" tall and weighs 66 pounds. What size bat should he be using?
Based on the player's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 29 inch bat.

The bat mentioned in the question (2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103) is a BBCOR bat designed for high school and college age players. For a player who is 10, one would want to look at either Youth Barrel bats ( 2 1/4" barrel diameter) or Youth Big Barrel bats/Senior League Baseball bats (2 5/8" and 2 3/4" barrel diameters) depending on what league rules allow.

I am 5'4 1/2 inches tall and 114 pounds. I was wondering whether I should get a 31 inch or a 32 inch?
Based on your height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 in a 31 inch model.
Since the material is composite I was just wondering does it need to be broken in?
Yes, composite bats do require a break-in period before game use to be ready. We recommend 150-200 swings off a tee or with soft toss, rotating the bat to ensure an even break in all around the barrel.
How does this bat compare to the maxum other than the sweet spot? I can only find a 33 maxum and I wanted the maxum 31 since I'm in middle school, 5'3" weighing 90 pounds. Also I've swung a velo tons of times and would this bat be more balanced than the velo?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (VG2AB103) is pretty much the same as the Maxum in every way except for the barrel length, or "sweet spot". I think it is definitely a good option for you. It is going to be similar in balance to the Rawlings Velo.

Is this a better bat than the Easton MAKO TORQ?
The differences one will find in the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 compared to the MAKO TORQ would be the overall balance and vibration reduction. The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 will feature a better overall balance feeling but will not limit vibration as much as the MAKO TORQ; this is a result of the MAKO TORQ being a two-piece bat. Performance of the bats will be very similar.
Is this a good bat for me? I'm 5'1" and 93 lbs.
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 is a one-piece fully composite bat with a very balanced swing weight. This would be a great option to consider for someone who is 5'1" and 93 lbs and based on these specs we would recommend looking into a 30 inch model.

Where they are going to vary is going to be the Vigor is a composite design while the Z-CORE is an aluminum design. Other than that they are very comparable bats.
Does this have a composite handle or full composite bat?

Does this bat have the USSSA stamp on it? I have a 13 year old that used a -5 well last year and needs to move up.
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 will not have the USSSA stamp on it as it is BBCOR certified instead. If a player is allowed to use a 2 5/8" barrel diameter then this bat would also be legal as the player would not be gaining an advantage; this is due to the fact that BBCOR bats will be heavier as well as have thicker barrel walls.
I'm 17 6'2" and 185 lbs. I like a bigger barrel but also a longer bat 33-34. Would this be a good fit?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 can be a good fit for someone seeking a bat with a bigger barrel. All BBCOR bats will feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter but the COMBAT bat will feature a much different taper than the majority of bats on the market. The barrel diameter of 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 will extend further towards the handle of the bat giving it a balanced swing weight design and larger sweet spot.
Where do you find the drop number?
If not specifically listed in the title of the bat, then you can always find the drop number by subtracting the weight of the bat from the length of the bat. For example, a bat that is 33" long and weighs 30 oz will have a drop of -3 (33-30=3).
This bat is stated as being balanced. How balanced is it compared to the MAXUM? I've read reviews saying it feels like it has a slight end load. Are their sticker weights accurate?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 is a balanced bat but will not be as balanced when compared to the MAXUM as the MAXUM has a longer barrel. As for the COMBAT bats and their listed weights, their bats are typically right on to 0.2 ounces heavier than listed.
How does the Vigor compare to the Maxum?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (VG2AB103) is going to be very comparable to the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB7MX103). The main difference between these two bats is going to be that the Maxum is going to feature a longer barrel than the Vigor. Other than that they are basically the same.
How is this bat balanced; is it end weighted? Why such a drop in price? Is their a flaw in the construction?
