Pros: One piece construction and durable Great pop so far
Cons: None noted at this time
2018 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX210
Balanced, HUGE barrel, Hot out of the wrapper, most important - son is confident with it in his hands
lots of pop out the wrapper only gets better with time
Pros: One piece construction and durable Great pop so far
Cons: None noted at this time
Pros: big sweet spot, nice balanced feel
Cons: unsure about durability
Pros: Looks good. Grip seems cheaper than 2016 models grip.
Cons: Have owned combat bats last 3 years. All the previous bata have been the correct length and weight as stated. All before were made in Canada. This bat was made in China, also it weighs about 1.2 oz more than it should. So ita basically a -8.5 big diffrence for a 10 year old. Will probably return to get the 2017 or 2016 model when still made in Canada. I would not risk buying the newer combats made in china, might as well switch to easton and start haing bats that ate not the corrextly stated weights. If a bat states it weighs a certain amount it should for the $300 price tag.
Pros: lots of pop out the wrapper only gets better with time......huge sweet spot
Cons: none great bat
Pros: great pop but grips not the same as the old liz skin and its made in China so im sure qc is not the same as the old Canada made combat but over all it still got that huge Barrel and combat sound so we will see how it lasts if not marucci will be getting a new customers usa usa usa all day
Cons: China mad
Pros: Lot of pop out of the wrapper. Great feel. We have only used it several times so don't know the durability yet. My son is very excited about his new bat and is hitting the ball harder this year. The combat is giving him the confidence to swing harder..
Cons: None so far!
Pros: All good
Cons: None yet
Pros: This bat was great right out of the package. Lots of pop and my kid loves it!
Cons: I purchased this bat to replace another Maxum Combat that cracked under warranty. I've followed the return process and have called Easton several times (they now own the brand)...every time I've been placed on a endless hold. I also submitted a claim through email with no response. VERY FRUSTRATING!
Pros: Balanced, HUGE barrel, Hot out of the wrapper, most important - son is confident with it in his hands. Now that Just Bats is backing them up, NO WORRIES
Cons: Can get a little sting - it is one piece
