Just curious why this bat is marked down so much and also I was told by the local Little League that all BBCOR bats are still legal to use in 14U and doesn't have to have the USA stamp on it. Do you know if that is correct? I'd hate to go to a game and the umpire or other team throw the bat out and not be able to use it anymore.
The 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX is marked down due to it being a closeout model from Mizuno. As for being able to use a BBCOR bat in Little League, the only division that allows BBCOR in place of a USA model would be the Senior Division.
Does the VP sleeve have any sort of temperature restrictions? It's recommended that composite bats shouldn't be used if it is too cold (like 60*), is the VP similar? Or any issues with using it in extremely hot temps (like 95*+)?
Just like composite and aluminum bats we do not recommend using the 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX with the Viscoelastic Polyurethane (VP) Sleeve in temperatures below 55 degrees.
Is the 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR a more end loaded bat like the 2016 model or is it more balanced?
The 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX features a balanced swing weight. The 2016 model was also balanced, but the first model in 2015 was considered an end loaded bat. The 2016 and 2017 are both more balanced than the original 2015 model.
Two part question. Part one, how's the pop off this bat compared to the 2017 Mizuno Covert? Two, how does the pop compare to the 2016 Mizuno MAXCOR?
The 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX will have similar performance capabilities as that of the 2017 Covert and 2016 MAXCOR. With BBCOR bats, there is not one bat that has shown greater performance capabilities than others that are on the market. With all of these bats featuring barrel wall designs to match performance capabilities of wood it comes down more to personal preference with regards to feel and material used. As well, pop cannot be accurately measured from one bat to the next so this is more opinion based. If one was basing it off of reviews, then the advantage would go towards the 2016 MAXCOR.
What's the difference between the 2017 and 2016 models?
There is not much difference in performance from the 2016 to the 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX model. The only real changes are the cosmetics of the bat.
