BBCOR MAXUM Brad player

Pros: I'm so glad they brought back the MAXUM. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get another one after I heard COMBAT went under. The sweet spot on this bat is HUMONGOUS. Seriously, it's like Everest.

Cons: I do feel a bit of sting but that's pretty typical with a 1 piece bat.

Great to see COMBAT MAXUM back Mark parent

Pros: My 13 year old son has found the balance of the bat is perfect and the pop right out of the package is great. Continue to keep the Combat line around as long as possible.

Cons: Haven't used long enough to have a con.

Cons: Sound of bat.

Review Matthew Canelli other

Pros: Great pop right out of the box. Grandson ( 14 years old) hit a few balls 300 ft. the first time with this bat. I would say it has a lot of pop, and should get better in time. Not a bad price for what you are getting.

Cons: Non at this time.

Combat Maxum Vs Louisville Prime Thomas Rodgers player

Pros: I am a HS Senior (2018) I am committed to a well known D1 College for baseball. I have had the opportunity to swing ALL of the "popular" bats. (Used LS Primes). I used the Combat Maxum 1/2 way thru summer season down at PG Events. I am telling you to run & get this bat. EXPLOSIVE OFF THE BAT !! The 1 pc construction bat lets power go right to the ball. LS is good bat, but Combat bat seriously made the ball jump.

Cons: Stinging!! The bat will teach you to square it up. If not, ouch. When you square it up, the ball flys effortlessly and it just feels good. LS Prime is forgiving on Miss hits, but I feel you trade off power for the anti vibration.

2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 Dr. Billy parent

Pros: This bat has a lot of pop...great feel and sound (not that 'ting' sounds but something more solid). Some folks on here reviewed it has having some vibration if miss hit...but my 15 year old reports no sting. This is quite a find for the price.

Cons: Nothing at this point...had it now for 2 weeks but a lot of use.

13U Adam player

Pros: huge barrel, no deadspots, great pop. My son was using a 2018 Demarini CS ZEN. He is now driving the ball father with his 2018 Combat Maxum. My son did his research and said he's glad he chose his Maxum and I didn't have to spend $400. - $450.

Love this bat!! Eli player

Pros: This bat has a giant sweet spot which allows you to easily get the ball on the barrel. Also, it has a very balanced feel which I love. I got the 30" 27oz bat and I love it. Really love the conposite design, and I highly recomend it.

Cons: Little sting when you hit it on the end of the bat or on the handle, but thats common with a one piece bat

Pros: Pop that makes you giddy Balanced Solid connection, nearly no vibration very durable Huge sweet spot great sound when you hit with it

Cons: very barrell heavy, so if you think that you want more weight in the handle, go for something more along the lines of a ghost x. I don’t mind though, so I love it.

Another great bat from Combat Jeff Coach

Pros: Nice and balanced with that HUGE sweet spot Maxums are known for. Good this on clearance for my 14u son going into BBCOR. He has had two other Combats that have served him well. He is not a power hitter but did hit his only HR with a Combat. Quality construction and a well put together stick!

Cons: None really. Just the adjustment from a -5 to a -3 BBCOR. I guess a con could be the OLD price, but pick this one up if they still got em!

Great bat!! Bryan Wells Parent

Pros: Great pop right out of the wrapper. My son had a drop 5 last year in 14U and loved it. Got him the BBCOR for High School and he loves this one too. Normally a solid contact singles hitter, both of the Combat bats have added to his power repertoire significantly. In his first High School game he almost put it over the fence. He loves his Combat bats.

Cons: None so far from either drop weight.

Excellent BBCOR bat for the price! Mike S. Coach

Pros: My son has had the DeMarini Zen -3 BBCOR and Easton Ghost X -3 BBCOR and he hits more line drives and with greater distance with this Combat Maxum -3 BBCOR than any of them. He loves it! It does seem slightly lighter than the others as well.

Cons: The knock on Combat has always been that they crack easily, but I’ll trade that chance for my son’s increased performance.

Pros: This bat is very hot out of the wrapper and after a couple of weeks practice starting our season hitting the batting cages it seems stronger. My son is in Pony and is putting the ball in select areas close to the back fence.

Cons: Can't keep the other team player off it. From a drop 10 to drop 3 is a little challenging for some but my son is 12 and 5' 7" and is able to keep up including 60 mph balls

BBCOR MAXUM Carter Miller Player

Pros: This bat is the best bat I have ever swung and hit with. Its huge barrel makes the bat super balanced and feel lighter than it is. The sweet spot is so big its hard to not hit the ball on it. I also have never really been a fan of the two piece composite bats I always preferred the one piece alloy bats, but this is a one is a one-piece composite bat, and it feels in-between a composite and alloy you don't get as much flex in the barrel as you would with a 2-piece. Over all this is a great bat for any hitter. Power or contact it does not matter I highly recommend.

Ben
I was under the impression that COMBAT were no longer going to be in production for this coming year. Is this not the case?
Jason
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 was one of a few models that COMBAT did produce for 2018. This bat is something we at JustBats.com are able to sell exclusively.
Cameron
What is the difference in this model and last year's model?
JR
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is very similar to the 2017 model with a different paint color.

Max
Will this bat stay at the price of 259 dollars, or will it go back up after time?
Jake

Trevor
What happened to the lizard skin grip as shown on previous models?
Joe
The 2018 model does not feature the Lizard Skin grip.
Kyle J.
The video says the 2018 has a Lizard Skin Grip. Then below your expert says no. Which is it?
Jim
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 does not feature the Lizard Skin Grip tape. It features a very similar grip tape though.
Jason
How is this bat hot out of the wrapper being a composite bat?
Ben
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 comes hot out of the wrapper due to the technology that Combat uses. Sometimes it may still require a break in, but it is a much shorter process than is required for other composites. You would probably only need to take about 50 swings to break it in.
Tori
Is the weight balanced along the bat or is it end loaded?
OC Invader
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103) Is a balanced bat.
Mick
Is this bat approved for use in Pony League (Pony Division) and USSSA type tournaments?
OC Invader
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103) is USSSA certified.
Carter
Does the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM have a lighter swing weight than the 918 Prime?
Daniel G.
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 will be slightly heavier than the LS Prime 918 BBCOR by roughly 0.4 ounces.
Cameron
Can you compare/contrast the MAXUM and the CAT 7?
Chad
Both the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 and the Marucci Cat 7 feature one piece designs. Where they differ is the Cat 7 features an aluminum design and the Maxum has a composite design. Both have a balanced design.
Carter
What is the MOI of the 2018 MAXUM?
daniel g
Unfortunately, COMBAT does not list the MOI of this 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103). However, the MAXUM line is very balanced in its weight distribution. The MOI is most likely pretty low and you want a lower MOI, this bat should deliver that feature for you.
Ben
Is this bat lighter than the 618 Solo BBCOR?
El Gallo
The balance of a bat can feel different to each player, but typically the Solo 618 feels more balanced to most players. The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is a very balanced bat though.
Jason
How does this bat compare the Vigor in terms of balance?
Tim
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is more well balanced than the Vigor, and offers a larger sweet spot as well.
Logan
Is this bat really a Combat or an Easton built clone?
ToledoUPSguy
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103) was made by COMBAT.
Mick
How different is this bat from the 2016 Maxum?
mike
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103, in our opinion, only differs from the 2016 MAXUM in regards to the cosmetic design.
Cameron
I would like to know what's the difference between this year and the 2017 BBCOR model? Also do all BBCOR bats come in a big barrel? I was hoping to keep a 2 1/4 barrel size.
Joe
Essentially the only difference between the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 and 2017 model would be the cosmetic design. As for BBCOR bats, they are all 2 5/8" barrel diameters with -3 length to weight ratios. As for the 2 1/4" barrel diameters, these bats are slowly being phased out.
Cameron
My son had a 32/29 Cat 7. Will the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM 32" swing the same way, or is it a heavier bat?
steve
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 may feel slightly lighter to some when comparing it to the Marucci CAT 7; would venture to say possibly about a 1/2 ounce difference.
Cameron
Is this bat USA approved under the new guidelines for 2018?
Dylansdad10
Unfortunately, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is not USA approved. It is just certified for BBCOR. It would be best to check with your specific league, as they may allow BBCOR as well.
Jason

My son played with Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 32/29. Does the Combat Maxum seem heavier or is it more balanced?
anthony
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 features a one-piece composite design as opposed to the 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBO5163 which featured a one-piece all alloy design. Both bats will feature a balanced swing weight but the Combat Maxum tends to be a little more balanced.
Dan
Is this bat approved for 2018 Dixie Youth play?
salina mills
Unfortunately, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 does not have the USA certification and therefore will not be allowed for 2018 Dixie Youth play. This bat is legal for all 2018 USSSA sanctioned events, however.
Tyler
How does this bat compare to the Omaha 518, which one has more pop, and which one is more balanced or lighter?
chrispy
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 features a one-piece composite design with an extended sweet spot for greater plate coverage. The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBO518B3 is fairly similar but will feature a one-piece aluminum alloy. Both bats will have a balanced feel.
Dan
Is this bat legal for Texas high school play?
Jason
Yes, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is approved for play at the High School level in Texas.
Dan

JJ
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 was never made in a 34 inch model and unfortunately there would not be another one-piece BBCOR model that would have been on the market.
Cameron
Is 2018 Combat MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 approved for play in Massachusetts high school and Pony baseball?

Hunter
Yes, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is a -3.
Tori
What is the best way to break in this particular bat?
Big Rigg
The best way to break in the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 would be to hit off a tee or soft toss, roughly 150-250 swings, and rotate the barrel a 1/4" turn after each swing. Swing speed would only need to be roughly 70% of max swing effort.
Cameron

Logan
My son is 14 yrs old and plays travel ball. He is 5'2" and 100 lbs. I feel he needs a 31", but not sure about the weight and such. What would you suggest for a bat size?
Ike
If you are seeking a BBCOR bat for a 14 year old player, we would recommend getting the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 in a 29 inch model. You can always go up to a 31 inch model if you feel the player can handle the extra length and weight as this bat does feature a very balanced swing weight design.
Cameron
My son is 16 and is a sophomore in high school. He is 6 ft. and 160 lbs. What would be the bat size he would use?
Alice Vorwaller
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 33" 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103.
Logan
Which is better for a contact hitter this bat or the MAKO Beast in your opinion?
BJ
I would probably say the Mako Beast as it is a two-piece design that is generally preferred a little more by contact hitters. The two-piece design allows the bat to flex and bend slightly more during the swing, providing a little more whip and making it easier to get the bat head through the zone.
Kyle J.
What would be done if the bat were to break within the 1 year warranty and there were no replacements available due to Combat basically being out of business?
Don
Easton and Combat were owned by the same parent company so, if this 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103) were to break within 1 year of your purchase, Easton would handle the warranty process. If they can't replace this exact bat, they would provide an Easton bat as similar to the Combat Maxum as possible.
Taylor
My son is 12 years old and is 5'-5'1". He weighs approximately 140 pounds. What length bat do you suggest?
Danielle
Given your player's specifications, I would recommend the 31" 28oz. 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103.
Tyler
My son is 15 and making the transition to high school ball. Given his height at 5'8" and weight of 130 lbs, what would you recommend for length in the MAXUM?
Chris
Based on your player's height and weight, I would recommend the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103) in either the 31"/28 oz or 32"/29 oz size. He would likely be more comfortable with the 31" size this season but if you were hoping to get a bat with a little room for your player to grow, I would recommend the 32".
Taylor
How does this bat compare to the Easton Beast X Speed? Are there any major differences?
Bill
Comparing the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 to the Easton Beast X Speed would be like comparing apples to oranges. The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is a one-piece composite bat with a balanced swing weight while the Easton Beast X Speed is a one-piece alloy model with a balanced swing weight. The overall balance might be slightly better on the MAXUM.
Cameron
Does the Combat have the same size barrel as the Beast X Speed? And is the barrel length the same?

All BBCOR bats will have a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, so yes they are the same size. The barrel length is fairly close on each model, but I would probably give a slight edge to the 2018 Combat Maxum.

What bat has a bigger sweet spot, the Easton Beast X Speed or the Combat Maxum? And which one is better for power?
andy
I believe the 2018 Combat Maxum BBCOR (AB8MX103) will have a slightly larger sweet spot than the 2018 Easton Beast X Speed. Both bats are similarly designed for power however, since both will have a one-piece design.

How does the balance of the COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR compare to the Louisville Slugger Solo?
J
Both the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 and the LS Solo 618 are one-piece balanced bats. With that said, the overall balance of the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 will carry a slight edge of the LS Solo 618.
Cameron
How does this Combat compare in balance swing weight compared to the 2017 Mizuno Maxcor and 2015 Easton Mako. Are two piece 2015 Mako bats for contact hitters?
Q
All three of these bats are considered to have balanced swing weights a should provide good swing speeds. Generally two-piece bats are better suited for contact hitters since they flex more during the swing and provide better vibration dampening on mishits.

Next year in PA high school baseball they want everyone using -5. Do you have this bat in a 31 inch -5?
ken
For high school play, one has to use a -3 BBCOR regardless of the state the player is in. The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 would qualify as a legal bat then for all high school and college players.
Cameron
Can it be used in High School and Collegiate Baseball?
Will
Yes, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 can be used in high school and college.
Carter
Does this red synthetic grip suppose to be better than 2017 lizard skin from last year. Any reason why they did this?
Q
I wouldn't say that one grip is better than another. However, my best guess is that the new synthetic grip on the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 helps reduce vibration more than the lizard skin. I recommend reaching out to Combat if you want more information on why they changed the grip.
Dan
Is there a temperature that this bat should not be used under?
gabe
We recommend limiting use of any bat at temperatures below 55 degrees. When the temperature sinks below 55 degrees, the ball becomes denser and has the ability to damage the barrel walls of the bat. If a player is participating in a practice that is being held in conditions with a temperature below 55 degrees, we would recommend using an older model bat that will no longer be used for games or even a wooden bat. If a game is being held in conditions below 55 degrees we would recommend taking BP with a non-game model bat (or wooden model) and then only using the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103) in the actual game.
Ben
Is this USA certified?
Kim
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103, like all other BBCOR bats, will not come with the USA stamp as they held to a different certification for older players (high school and NCAA.) The performance threshold is very similar to the USA requirements though, and quite a few of the USA leagues allow for players to use a BBCOR bat.
Tyler
Is there an option for a left handed grip?
Rylee
Unfortunately, the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 will come as the grip that COMBAT provides.
Max
I am a contact hitter and want a balanced bat that still provides plenty of pop. Should I get this bat or the 2018 Velo?
Garrett
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 would be a great option for a balanced option with performance.
Max
Does this bat meet the Babe Ruth Leagues Junior Divisions bat standards? 2018 Rule: USA Baseball Marking or BBCOR .50 2 5/8' Barrel
Mike
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 does feature the BBCOR .50 marking and features a 2 5/8" barrel, so it would be legal according to those rules.
Logan
High school baseball is played in the cold weather of Feb. How will this bat hold up in 32 to 50 degree weather?
DP
It is hard to say whether the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 would hold up well in colder weather since this bat is fully composite. Generally speaking, the colder the weather the greater likelihood a bat can break down at a faster rate. If just using this bat for colder games you should be okay, assuming the entire season is not being played at these listed temperatures.
Cameron
Which bat has a bigger sweet spot, the Marucci Cat 8 2019 or Combat Maxum 2018? Also, which band has a more forgiving handle?
TY
The sweet spot size is fairly large on both models, although the Combat Maxum may have a very slight edge. I would give the Marucci Cat 8 the advantage in vibration dampening and handle however.
Kyle J.
Will you be getting Combat 32/29 Bach in stock?
Kevin Green
We will not be receiving anymore of these in stock as they are no longer being produced by the manufacturer.
Kyle J.
What is the return policy? It seems confusing. Can I return the bat within 30 days if has been opened and used?
Aaron
The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 will have a 30 day money back guarantee, which means you can open it and use it and if it isn't what you are looking for you can return it for a full refund or exchange within 30 days.
Max
Will there be a 2019 model?
Jake
At the time of this posting, we do anticipate the release of the 2019 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: ABBMX103 this coming spring. However, exact release date has not been announced.
Daveron
I need either a 33 or 34 in this bat. Do they make it? I saw it was sold out everywhere online.
Ray
They did make the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 in a 33''. Unfortunately, we no longer have it in stock.
Tori
Will you have anymore 31's in stock?
Scott B
Unfortunately, we will not be restocking the COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 in a 31" as it is a 2018 closeout model & manufacturers have moved on to making the 2019 models!
Dani
Do you guys at JustBats have any 31/28 models left for the Combat Maxum?
Charles
At the time of this posting, we do not anticipate any more orders or releases of COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 in 31 inches.
Daveron
What is the warranty on this bat?
Preston
When purchased in new condition, the COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB8MX103) will feature a 12 month warranty through the manufacturer.
Taylor
What are the odds you'll have a 32 inch in stock anytime this year?
PJ
Sadly, there is not a very high chance that we will have any 32" COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 again as it has been discontinued by the manufacturers.
Tyler
Does it come in 32"/29 oz also or just 30"/27 oz?
Justin
We only have 30" models left in stock.
Kyle
Do you think you could find a 32/29 for the same price for me?
Blake
Unfortunately we only have the COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 in 30 and 31 inch models. With this bat being on closeout we will not be able to get any 32 inch bats from the manufacturer.
Cameron
My son is small so I am looking for the lightest BBCOR bat with the most pop. Is this a good one? We were also looking at the CAT 8. Which one would you recommend?
ROBERT
The COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB8MX103 is a well balanced one-piece all composite bat. With this being available still in 30 inches and 27 ounces it would make a great choice for someone seeking a smaller BBCOR option. The Marucci CAT 8 is another good option to consider that will offer better vibration control. The MAXUM will be slightly better balanced.
