In a price range typically littered with only alloy options, COMBAT has created a one of a kind bat. The COMBAT VIGOR is the only baseball bat that offers a 100% composite, one-piece, single wall barrel construction. This design gives the VIGOR an exceptional advantage over the competition. Not only does this result in a longer, extended barrel but it provides explosive power, a lighter swing weight, and essential feedback. Furthermore, the unique single wall barrel produces an extraordinary trampoline effect for maximum pop and a superior feel. Much like that of the popular MAXUM models, the VIGOR uses COMBAT's Precision Molded Seamless Construction Technology which results in a hardened, ultra-consistent molded bat every time making it perfectly tuned for optimal performance. Additionally, no seams means no dead spots for a dependable performance during every at bat. Plus, as an added bonus, each VIGOR comes wrapped with an ultra-premium Lizard Skins grip for supreme comfort and reduced vibration.
This 2017 COMBAT VIGOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 features a -3 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, and the BBCOR Certification making it legal for play at the high school and collegiate level. Also, COMBAT is backing this model with a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. COMBAT: See The Difference! Make sure to pick up your own VIGOR today with our fast, free shipping!
add_circle_outlinePros: Price point is outstanding for a 2017 composite. Very consistent bat, my son loves it. Says it has more pop then his Voodoo, and Mako. Constant hits off the bat with no sting, and it can hit BOMBS.
remove_circle_outlineCons: It is composite so not to sure on durability, but so far so good.
add_circle_outlinePros: 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!
add_circle_outlinePros: 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,,
add_circle_outlinePros: 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.
add_circle_outlinePros: 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.
add_circle_outlinePros: 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.
remove_circle_outlineCons: 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.
add_circle_outlinePros: 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.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Everyone will think that the baseballs are juiced when they see me hit on the field.
add_circle_outlinePros: 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.
What is the difference between the 2017 Vigor and the 2016 Vigor?
The only real difference between the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 and the 2016 model is going to be the design.
How is this bat balanced; is it end weighted? Why such a drop in price? Is their a flaw in the construction?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (VG2AB103) is going to feature a balanced design. The reason for the price drop is we were able to get a these at a good price from COMBAT so we can sell them at a lower price.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
Does this have a composite handle or full composite bat?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 is a one-piece, fully composite bat.
My son is a lightweight 8th grader looking for a BBCOR bat with a light swing weight. How does this bat compare to the Easton Z-Core BBCOR bat?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (VG2AB103) and the 2016 Easton Z-CORE HMX BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16ZA) are both going to feature balanced, one piece designs. 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.
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.
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.
I live in the Midwest and baseball starts in March. Can this bat be used when temps are in the upper 40's - 50's?
It is not recommended to use a composite bat, such as the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (VG2AB103), in temperatures below 60 degrees. Lower temperatures will decrease the bats performance and increase the potential of cracking
I know Combat sold out to Easton so will the warranty be honored still?
Yes, the warranty for COMBAT's that we sell, including the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103, will go through us here at JustBats.com.
Will the new bat rules for 2018 have any effect on this type of bat?
The new bat rules coming out in 2018 will only effect youth baseball bats. The BBCOR models, such as the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103, that high school and college players use will not change.
Why the huge price drop for a 2017 bat?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 have been reduced in price after Easton shut down the COMBAT product line. As a result, the subsequent bats that were purchased were offered at a lower price and this has allowed us to pass the savings onto the consumer.
How does this bat compare to the 2016 vigor?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 and the 2016 model are really the same bat other than the cosmetics.
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.
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.
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.
Is this bat legal for 13U baseball?
Yes, since this bat has BBCOR .50 certification, it should be allowed for use within travel baseball for a 13 year old player.

Yes, the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (VG2AB103) does come with the Ultra-Premium Lizard Skins Grip.
I am 5'7" and weigh 170 lbs. What inch bat would you recommend me getting?
Based on your height and weight, I would suggest the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 in a 32" 29oz. size.
Do you have any bat pack deal with a drop 3 and a drop 10 so my son can use one for Little League and one for school ball? Also, he is 5'6" and 110 lbs. What size do you recommend? He uses a 32-22 in drop 10 now.
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 30 or possibly a 31 inch 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103. As for a bat pack with a -10 and -3, we do not have any of these packs set up as all BBCOR models will be paired with other BBCOR models.
My son is 13 yrs old, 5'3" and weighs 125 lbs. What size bat should he be using?
We would suggest a 30-31" bat for someone his size.
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 weight to get is more dependent on what he is currently swinging and how well he can get this weight through the zone. 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.
What is the lowest temperature in which this bat can be used? I got it today and was just wondering. I thought I saw somewhere that it might have been 60 degrees.
A composite bat like the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 is best used in temps exceeding 70 degrees. 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.
How does the balance of the Vigor compare to the Maxum? I know the barrel is bigger on the maxum, but is the balance point at the same place?
Yes, both of these bats will feel nearly identical in terms of balance.
Will COMBAT be making bats for 2018?
Unfortunately COMBAT went out of business and this is the last year that COMBAT will be making bats.
I am 5'11" and 140 lbs, what size bat should I be using?

Would you suggest this for a 6'1 245 pound power hitter or is this more of a contact hitter model?

I'm around 5'5" to 5'6" and 130 lbs. Would a 33/30 work for me?

Is the -3 just as good as the -5?
The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: VG2AB103 will perform closer to that of a wood bat as a BBCOR model will have thicker barrel walls; essentially a -5 model of the same bat would allow for greater distance due to less barrel wall restrictions.
(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.
