add_circle_outlinePros: My 9U boy (67 lbs, 4' 6") went 2-3 with this bat right out of the wrapper. Both hits were shots to the outfield and not cleanly hit. The 29 drop 11 is just right for him now. This is his 2nd Maxum, and both have done very well. Too bad they're out of the bat business.
remove_circle_outlineCons: None yet. Will wait to the end of the season to review durability.
add_circle_outlinePros: lots of pop, extended big barrell for a larger sweet spot. My son plays 12u travel ball, hes about 5 feet tall 78lbs so hes tall and skinny and he doesnt have a lit of power. i got 31" and its jest about perfect. went fron -12 Catalyst to this -11 and the bat is well balanced that you cant even tell the fifference in weight. i swear it almost feels lighter. Through 6 games he hasnt had a single stinger yet. too early to tell about durability but seems well made.
huge extended big barrel w good pop
add_circle_outlinePros: Bought the 31" -11 for my son whos 11 and plays 12u travel. He is average height for an 11 year old and really thin. Bat drop is perfect for him as he doesnt have a lot of power but is a great contact hitter. I wasnt happy with the 2018 model of the bat make weve been using for past years so i tried this one. I immediately noticed it had more pop, extended barrel truely does give you more of a sweet spot. It did not make him a better hitter but it is very easy to notice the ball flys off this bat alot harder than his old one. Hes had 50 plate appearances w it so far and has not had a single stinger which is amazing. Too early to comment on durability but is holding up perfect thus far.
add_circle_outlinePros: My 10 year old son has been playing little league baseball for the past few years. He's been only using little league approved bats. This past season, he got good enough to be selected to play on a tournament team, and one of his coaches said to get him a lighter bat with more "pop". I had no idea what he was talking about, so he directed me to justbats.com and found this bat (size 29" 18 oz). It was on sale, so I thought, what the heck. The first tournament we played, me son was able to hit balls into the outfield. Grounders came off the bat hard. I don't remember him striking out once. He felt more comfortable swinging the bat and didn't complain about any sting.
This bat is amazing! I read that it's being discontinued. That's too bad, maybe I'll buy another one before they run out of stock.
remove_circle_outlineCons: not sure about durability. We haven't played enough.
add_circle_outlinePros: Grandson plays 12U and absolutely loves the new bat. Had great pop right out of the wrapper. Can't really comment on durability since we've only had the bat a little over a month.
What is the difference in specs between this 2018 model and the 2017 SL7MX211?
This 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) will essentially be the same bat as the 2017 MAXUM, but with an updated cosmetic look.
Does this bat have the new USA baseball stamp?
No, the 2018 Combat Maxum -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) does not feature the new USA Baseball Stamp. As of 6/30/2017, all of the bats on the market do not feature the new USA Baseball Stamp. The new USA Baseball models will be released on September 1st.
What is the new USA baseball stamp?
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) does not feature the new USA Baseball stamp. But, it does feature the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification.
You can learn more about the new youth bat standard (USABat) here: http://www.justbats.com/bat-resource-guide/usabat-standard/
Is this bat legal for 2018 season? My 13 years old kid is playing travel baseball and would like to know.
This bat will be legal for any USSSA sanctioned tournaments and leagues for 2018.
Is there a drop limit for USSSA big barrel bats for ages 12 and under? If so, what are they?
There is not going to be any drop limitation for USSSA baseball. As long as the bat has the correct USSSA stamp on it the bat is legal for USSSA play. The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) does have the correct stamp on it.
Are you making a new combat little league baseball bat for 2018 the has the stamp USA (2-5/8") approved for little league use?
Combat will not be releasing any bats with the USA baseball stamp.
Will COMBAT be making USA rated baseball bats?
Combat will not be making bats with the new USA Baseball Bat certification. The reason is because COMBAT actually went out of business in the fall of 2016. Due to the relationship we had with COMBAT's owner company, the owner company agreed to create some 2018 COMBAT USSSA 1.15 rated bats exclusively for JustBats.com. The owner company unfortunately did not have the money to fund the research and development it would have taken to create COMBAT USA Baseball Bats.
I purchased a 2018 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTDXCBC in September. Is it not going to be a legal bat to use for 2018? My son plays in more than just USSSA tournaments. I'm concerned, the bat was very expensive and thought would last thru at least his first 2 years of high school, now sounds like will not be eligible to use.
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX211 would be a legal bat in 2018 for travel ball players where the USSSA models are allowed. As this bat is a -11 model it would be best for those 11 and younger. As for the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR bat, these bats would be legal for all high school and college age players. It can also be used in USSSA tournaments currently as well as moving forward in 2018. There has been some confusion with regards to the new USA Bats that are required by some leagues in 2018. For more information please review our bat resource guide.
Will this bat ever be available in a 26' length?
Unfortunately, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) is not offered in a 26" length. You can shop our 26-inch baseball bats here: https://www.justbats.com/products/length~26%20inch/
Is this bat legal for Babe Ruth league?
Unfortunately, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX211 is only approved for play in USSSA baseball games. The Babe Ruth league will require the new USA bat certification. I recommend reaching out to one of our customer coaches at JustBats.com if you need any suggestions.
I'm needing a 29" and my boys love the Maxum series. When reading the reviews it looks like the -10 weighs out a little heavier now. This makes me want to look at the drop -11. My son is only 8 but has an aggressive swing. He is swinging the 28", -10 version and looking to make the move to a 29" but feel the -10 maybe too heavy with reading the reviews about the weight. Is this drop -11 a good alternative as it seems the Combat's made in China are a little heavier than described.
Almost any bat will weight about .5-1.5 oz heavier than the listed weight to be honest. This is because manufacturers weigh bats before final construction, so things such as the adhesive glue for the end cap, grip tape, and paint will push it slightly over the listed weight. The Combat Maxum is still a well balanced bat that should swing easy, so I think a -10, 29" would still work fine, though you can certainly still use a 29", -11 model.
Is it 2.75" barrel?
Yes, this 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) will come with a 2.75" barrel diameter.
I am looking for a composite bat for my son who plays 7U and will soon play 8U. He's 52" tall and weighs about 60 lbs. currently we have a 27/17 Rawlings, and it just looks small. We recently looked at some 29" bats, but they just look too big. Any suggestions on sizing him up?
Based on your son's height and weight, I would recommend getting the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX211 in a 28''.
What bat did this replace?
This 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) replaced the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX211).
Where was this bat made?
This 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX211) was built in China.
Can you confirm if this bat is close to the advertised weight? I know it is a -11 but I have seen too many bats lately both USA and non USA that are way over their advertised weights.
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX211 will come in roughly 0.8 ounces heavier than the listed weight.
Do these bats come with a warranty?
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX211 will have a Full Twelve (12) Month Warranty.
My son plays 9U travel. Is this bat still legal?
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX211 is legal for leagues that allow USSSA bats. For any leagues that follow the USA Bat rules, this would not be legal.
What is the difference between this 2018 combat maxum -11 and the 2018 combat maxum -10 (orange bat)?
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: (SL8MX211) has a -11 length to width ratio (for example, 28" bat would be 17oz.). The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: (SL8MX210) would have a -10 length to width ratio (for example, a 28" bat would weigh 18oz.). Take the weight minus the length to come up with a negative number that is called the drop. For instance, a 34-inch bat that weighs 24 ounces is a -10 drop weight. The higher the drop number the lighter the bat. For example, -12 bat is lighter than -5.
My son has a Combat Maxum -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110. He's had the bat 2 years, so needs a new one.
Which model would be closest to his old bat?
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX210 would be most similar to the COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110, just with a larger barrel diameter. If you need a different size from what we have listed in the 2018 model, you can check out the 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX210. Both the 2018 and 2019 will have 2 3/4" barrels, while the 2017 he had featured a 2 5/8" barrel.
