Cons: Other then the price NONE
2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4
I went through an entire round of BP and did not feel a single ounce of vibration
Switched from the mako to the rawlings quatro for this season
Pros: Easily got an extra 25-30 feet Perfectly Balanced No Vibration even off the handle
Cons: Other then the price NONE
Pros: I will say, I usually don't necessarily like composite bats, but I had the chance to demo a 33" Quatro and gave it a shot. To me, many comps seem to be so balanced that I lose some of the feel of the barrel. So I've really only purchased alloy. Wouldn't say it's "ultra-light", but I felt the bat getting through the zone easily. Just balanced enough. Long barrel / big sweet spot and lighter weight like any quality comp. The "Quatro Collar" definitely does its job. Pitches hit a little too far toward the handle or toward the end cap won't ring your hands at all, but it gives enough feedback so that you know you didn't quite get all of it. When you square one up, you can feel the slightest amount of flex which I like a lot. Really good performance right out of the wrapper.
Cons: (Pros Cont.) - Kind of a small thing, but I like this grip. Not too thin like others. Those black shapes on the grip aren't just printed; they're cut-out from the rest of it. After some swings and my hands getting a little sweaty, I noticed that the little "holes" really helped keep my hands on the bat without slipping (I don't wear gloves). After about 100-150 swings, I didn't find a reason yet to give this one anything but a 5 out of 5.
Pros: The quatro has a skinny handle and allows for whip throw the zone. The inner wall does not collide with the outer wall if you have a slower/medium bat speed and arent facing 90 mph pitching. I recommend this bat for middle school and JV players. The 5150 and Velo are much more effective for Varsity and college level play. The thing that bewilders me is that i have seen a couple of UVA baseball players hit with this bat.
Cons: my bat speed is 85-90 mph and most pitchers i face will have a fastball of at least 85 mph, this combination of speed does not mesh well with my style of playing consdering that the Quatro has an inner wall and outter wall, if the two walls do not collide it simulates hitting with the old BESR bats. The walls collide basically every at-bat for me.
Pros: Great pop! Swings well!
Pros: Loved this bat right out of the wrapper. Definitely gets noticed on the field. The grip feels great in your hands. Almost no vibration when you get jammed on a pitch. Good pop off the bat and a satisfying sound.
Cons: No complaints so far with this bat. Very satisfied overall.
Pros: Obviously, the highlighter yellow color is a huge pro for most but that is just the beginning. Rawlings has done a fantastic job with their composite baseball bat. This model is extremely well balanced and the pop is fantastic! I would recommend this bat to anyone.
Pros: I went through an entire round of BP and did not feel a single ounce of vibration. The new quatro collar really does its job. This bat almost sounds as if it were aluminum. I love it.
Cons: It says balanced but I felt like there was a slight end load to it. The grip isn't as 'cushion-y' as I would have hoped but it gets the job done.
Pros: This bat is in a class of its own as it is redefining the composite bat world. Rawlings combine the best of both worlds with a bat that swings smooth and has a tremendous amount of pop. The barrel is easy to feel which promotes a proper swing path. Grip is course and durable. The most balanced composite bat I have swung. The rubberized Quatro collar seems to significantly reduce vibration. Great addition to the Rawlings family of bats and easily one of the best bats on the market.
Cons: * Not as all disappointed in this purchase.
Pros: I used this bat and I can easily say it is the best bat I have ever used. Great pop and great feel. It is extremely balanced but it can be used by both contact and power hitters. I would recommend it for anybody.
Pros: This bat is undoubtedly the best bat I have ever used. It has more pop than any bat I've tried. It is also a very balanced bat and feels very light while swinging. I have always trusted Rawlings for their great quality. The Quatro is a phenomenal bat, that all of the great players will soon be using. I can't wait to see the future of this bat!
Cons: There are no noticeable flaws to this bat.
Pros: The Quatro is simply the smoothest bat I've ever used. No matter the point of contact it feels like you hit the sweet spot every time. This bat is meant for any type of hitter from homerun hitters to contact hitters. This bat is all around one of Rawlings best products and is a highly recommended bat for any level of play.
Cons: not a flaw to the bat.
Pros: Extreme pop out of the rapper great feel hits bombs and the grip on the handle is awesome!!!!
Cons: A bat like this might not be made this good again
Pros: Switched from the mako to the rawlings quatro for this season. Loving the bat already. Has a great feel and decent balance.
Pros: The flex and feel of the bat are great with a balance swing and some descent pop
Cons: Other brands have more pop that my son tried on his team. The durability is not great. Halfway through the season the bat had more flex and less pop even a wiod bat out preformed. Shoock it after a few more games in and had a rattle inside. Rawlings was great on sending a replacement except the replacement cracked after the first outing during my sons first high school scrimmage. We will purchase a different brand that is used to making composite bats.
Pros: The bat has tons of pop, has a great grip, and feels light in the hands and on the swing.
Cons: This bat cracked just 3 weeks out of the wrapper and I hadn't even used it that much. Did this twice. Good bat, not durable.
Pros: The bat has amazing pop and balance right out of the wrapper. The grip tape beats all of the bulky ones to where you can truly feel the bat as you swing. No vibration at all.
Cons: Within 1 week of using the bat it was being looked at and there were a total of 7 different cracks along the barrel.
Pros: great pop, good feel, very balanced
Cons: Broke first one within 2 weeks. Sent it back at shipping cost to me. Received a new one stamped "no warranty" now it is broken after 1 month. Buy a velo and save yourself $100 and a headache.
Pros: its a really good bat great pop feels light very well balanced and when u connect in the right spot it sounds like heaven and the ball flies off the bat
Cons: price and i broke mine in 2 months
Pros: Looks and feels Great with superb pop!
Cons: Bought 2... 1 for my 16 year old and 1 for a good friend/teammate. BOTH BROKE... DIDN'T EVEN LAST A COMPLETE HIGH SCHOOL SEASON IN THE CHICAGOLAND AREA WHERE THERE ARE PLENTY OF WEATHER RELATED CANCELLATIONS!!! RAWLINGS NEEDS TO STAY AWAY FROM THE COMPOSITE BAT...
Pros: No vibration and great pop
Cons: Only 2 months out of the box and the bat snapped completely in half
Pros: Great bat no ringing and a lot of pop great bat overall
Cons: My first one broke by mid season in two spots
Pros: Good pop, nicely weighted. Good feel for power hitters.
Cons: Not durable. I have a 90+ exit velocity, and this bat broke (something large rattling inside, and complete loss of any pop). I always had DeMarini CF's and all lasted more than 2 full years. I did not like the grip that came with the bat, after the initial few sessions.
Pros: Bat has some good pop to it. Balance is good, grip is really nice.
Cons: Bought bat 4/3/17 and it broke on 6/15/17. To much money for a bat that breaks after 2 months. My son got jammed on a pitch and bat broke right on the "R" on RAWLINGS.
Pros: Good balance and pop.
Cons: Fragile. Bat broke within 6 weeks of use. Rawlings warranty and customer support stinks - especially when you consider the price that you're paying. If your bat breaks, be prepared to be without it for at least 3 weeks. And you better not break the replacement they send you, because you only get one. So, clearly, Rawlings doesn't think they need to stand behind a bat they charge $400 for.
Pros: Good Looking Bat!
Cons: Bat does not hold up! Out of the wrapper it has grwat pop (Which is short lived) After a few weeks my 15y/o bat broke! Sent it back and the one they sent him has mo warranty but is even more dead than hos broken one.... Not impressed will be switching back to Easton or Demarini. Stcik with Rawlings for Gloves, and Wood bats.
Pros: This bat as everyone has said has tremendous pop coming out of the wrapper and only gets better. Bought 4 the players loved them. The ball flew off the bat and we were clobbering the ball as a team and then the cons began.
Cons: We broke all 4 bats in less than a month. The durability on these bats is terrible for this cost tier of a bat. We have periodically had bats break that we buy for the team thats why you have warranties. But to break all 4 in less than a month into the season and then to get them replaced and break 3 of the 4 replacement bats is unacceptable.
Pros: This bat has a lot of pop to it. Feels good when swinging and making contact. But that does not last very long.
Cons: Not a very durable bat. Bought Quatro 34" drop 3 BBcor bat in January of 2017. Read all about the Quatro. I even bought a far less expensive bat with a similar size barrel for batting practice. Used the Quatro only in games. During a game 5 months after purchase the end cap of bat began to staqrt coming loose. I would push it back on. A few weeks after there was something loose inside the bat. My son had a few big upcoming tournaments so I did not send right away. I sent the bat back 8 months after the original purchase date. Received a new one that was stamped No Warranty. During my 1st game using replacement bat (which is a 2018 34" Quatro ) my sons second at bat a large peice has come loose on the inside. It sound like a very large piece. As you swing the bat you feel it travel up the barrel and hit the end cap. WOW!!!! I say. Very disappointed in this. Alot of money to pay for a bat that does not even last 6 months. Theres something FISHY about the replacement
Pros: Best composite bat on the market!!!!!
Pros: My Amazon product is the 2017 Rawlings Quatro, This is a baseball bat, it is a bright neon color all over with Rawlings in black print. This bat looks good as well as it has a very nice feel when you swing it. It uses its 4 piece bat to generate more torque and have a more balanced feel. It uses its middle piece to deaden the vibration so you cannot feel anything when you hit. Personally it is the best bat I have ever swung, It has such a balanced feel. Meaning the weight is evenly distributed leading to the bat feeling lighter than what it actually is. It has a big sweet spot that leads to you barrelling up more balls. Alos when I hit one off the end of the bat or down on the handle there is no vibration. In any other bats you will get a stinger if you hit one in those spots. I highly recommend this product 4.5 stars out of 5. The only bad thing about this product is that it is a little pricey.
Got a question about the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
My son is a high school baseball player that has now cracked 2 of the Quatro bats in the last year. He loves the bat but I really do not want to continuously deal with trying to replace bat with warranty. Luckily it was still under warranty. Is this a problem with this bat? Is there another bat just like it but with better durability?
It would be hard for us to say whether there is a durability issue with the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 as we do not handle the warranty claims on these bats and thus do not inspect them. As for something that would be similar, there is the LS Prime 918, Easton Ghost X, and DeMarini CF Zen.
I am 5'11" and 155 pounds. I can't decide between the 2018 Demarini Voodoo Insane and this bat. I am a power hitter that bats fourth in the line up. Which bat would you recommend has more pop? What size should I get?
Given your specifications, I would recommend swinging something along the lines of a 32" 29oz bat. The 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 is going to offer you a balanced swing weight compared to the end loaded swing weight of the Insane. I would not necessarily say that one bat has more "pop" than the other as they are each held to the same performance standard. End loaded bats do typically provide a little bit more on contact, assuming bat speed has not been compromised but they are tougher to control than a balanced bat. Furthermore, power hitters have been successful with each type of swing weight.
My son is 5'6 and 115 pound freshman. He is a contact hitter with good strength for his weight. He has the Velo now and likes it, but likes the power of the Quatro he tried. Does the Quatro have more power and would it be a better bat to add or buy another Velo.
It would be hard for me to say that one bat has more power than the other. However, the two-piece design of the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 causes a whip-like action through the swing zone and results in more inertia and power for your player. I would recommend the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 in a 30 or 31 inch.
I am 5'11" and 141 pounds. What size bat would you recommend for me?
Based on your height and weight, we would recommend using a 32" Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7Q4).
What is the difference between the 2017 and 2018 models?
The main difference between the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 and the 2018 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB8Q3 is that the 2018 now utilizes a newly designed lightweight end cap to reduce swing weight and provide more control.
I have a 2016 VELO and its a 32"/29 oz and I've been swinging it for about a year and a half now. I don't really like the feel of the VELO anymore and I'm about to buy the Quatro. Should I get a 33" or a 32"?
Unless you feel completely ready to move to a 33"/30 oz size of bat (or that your performance is lowered by swinging the 32"/29 oz size bat), I would recommend going with the same 32"/29 oz size of the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7Q4).
What is the difference between this year's model and last year's?
The main difference between the 2018 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB8Q3 and the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 is that the 2018 version has a newly innovated end cap to make the swing weight even more balanced than it was before.

Leagues requiring a BBCOR certified bat, such as the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4, will not be affected by the rule change. There are not any bats on the market yet that feature the USABat stamp or that will pass certification to be used next year. These bats will be available in the fall of this year.
I am definitely going to buy a bat from you guys because you never disappoint but, I am thinking about getting this bat but before I do so I want a professional opinion like yourselves on which bat should I get (doesn't matter brand or price).

How do you compare the Rawlings Quatro to the Marucci Cat 7?
The 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7Q4) is two piece composite bat while the Marucci Cat 7 is going to be a one piece aluminum bat. The Quatro will offer a lot more flex while the Cat 7 will offer a stiffer feel, more like a wood bat.
In terms of balance, how does this bat compare to the Rawlings VELO?
This 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7Q4) will be a pretty balanced swinging bat. However, I might give the advantage in regard to balance to the VELO since the VELO features a light-weight, composite end-cap that helps bring down the swing feel on the bat.
Is the Rawlings Quatro like the old RX4 models? I really liked those and they quit making them.
The 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 is a two-piece fully composite bat and is the first composite BBCOR bat that Rawlings has produced. This bat will be completely different when compared to the old Rawlings RX4 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBRX4 as this bat was a one-piece fully alloy bat. Both bats will have a balanced swing weight but that is all that they will share in common.
Is the new 2017 Quatro a 2-piece bat?
This 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7Q4) will feature an all-composite design. As well, the composite barrel and composite handle will be fused together at a connection point. You could refer to the bat as a a two-piece bat.
