Pros:  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.

Cons:  None yet. Will wait to the end of the season to review durability.

Pros:  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.

Cons:  none yet

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''.

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.

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 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 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.

Is there a drop limit for USSSA big barrel bats for ages 12 and under? If so, what are they?
