Pros:  We got this bat in -11 for our son for his birthday; was hesitant about spending $100 but it was worth it. He was moving from a -13 reflex and the -11 version was the closest. We also went from 27 inch to 28 inch so we increased the weight by 3 oz. It has a good sweet spot and balance. He has hit about 50 pitches this past week and besides having to adjust to the added weight he is still driving the ball up the middle and just as far as his old reflex bat. The 2 5/8 barrel is also an adjustment but he seems to like it better than the 2 1/4. The 5150 is a good bat and you will not be disappointed.

Cons:  None so far; just having to buy it and him having to move to a -11 instead of -13.

Pros:  Solid bat, no sting, won't break the bank. Interesting sound, ear splitting at times.

Cons:  Weight is 2 oz over claimed weight. 29" weighed in a bit over 21oz! Keeping it as a practice and "warm up" bat, but will also be purchasing a true -10 drop.

Pros:  This bat has some nice POP to it and a loud "ding" when hitting the sweet spot. My son loves it. He graduated from a 2 1/4 to this 2 5/8 Drop 10 and you can see the improvement. Great all around bat for the price!

Cons:  The bat does vibrate but not so much that my son can't stand it.

Pros:  Going from a -13 to this -11 bat I think for us was the best case scenario. We haven't notice any drop off or swing speed. After his hitting lesson the Instructor had some concerns about the bat being 2 5/8 but we looked up on line and his response was that this bat was a weapon, and that he should have no problem driving the ball this season.

Cons:  I am not sure the price is justified we tried to stay middle of the road he is only 9 seems silly to be spending that kind of money on a bat.

Pros:  don’t sleep on this bat! My son rather use this than his ghost X. Has good pop out of the wrapper. Don’t hide from the rules folks, just adapt! Our 9u team bought all the new usa baseball bats on sept. 1st 2017, and this one is the most popular. For 100 bucks you can’t go wrong. We use the 28/18 which actually weighs about 20 ounces, but it’s end loaded and provides some whip.

Cons:  heavier than labeled, irratating sound

Pros:  made very well..awesome "ping" when hitting it true. My 9yo son just started using this bat and loves it. He moved up to 18oz so he has to start his swing just a second quicker but the ball flies well off of this bat. The color scheme is pretty cool on this bat and has a nice "tacky" handle.

Cons:  none so so.

Pros:  I bought this bat for my 12 year old son. We went with the 31". Although its a bit smaller than he's using in AAU ball, we needed this to play out his final season in Little League. For the price, it has great pop. We have not used it in league play yet. But in the cages, you can tell it has great pop & hits with distance. He used it in the cage for soft toss. Ball after ball, the bat is loud. I would recommend this bat, if you're not looking to spend a ton of money. We liked it so much, we bought the same bat for our 8 year old son. He too has no problem showing, that it has a great solid pop to it.

Cons:  If the ball gets hit at the tip of the bat, the vibration stings a bit. Nothing over the top, though. Just a little sting.

Pros:  I bought this bat for my 12 yr old son, so he can play out his final season in Little League. The 31" is a tad small for my boy. He plays AAU and uses a 32" mako for that. For the price, this bat has a great solid pop to it. If using for soft toss in a cage, I will say this...Its loud. We liked it so much, I bought a 2nd one for my 8 yr old. He too has proven that it has great pop. I would recommend this bat, if you'e not looking to spend a ton of money. With us, my 12 yr old is in his last year at Little League and my 8 yr old uses the 29" inch. Later, the 31" will be used by our 8 yr old.

Cons:  The only negative we found was, his hands stung a bit when the ball was hit at the tip of the bat. Other than that, no vibrations elsewhere.

Pros:  Good balance - solid swings vs a couple other bats we tried.

Cons:  5 dents after the first use. The day after we bought it went to the school field with a couple friends (using official LL baseballs) and after about an hour we found 5 dents one big one right in the sweet spot.

I am looking for this bat in a 31" drop 10. Is it available?

At this time we do not have the 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat: US8510 in stock in a 31/21. We hope to have more of this size from Rawlings in the coming weeks.

Is there a unit of measure given to bats to indicate the balance or how much end load the bat has?

Unfortunately there are no units of measure to indicate how balanced or end loaded the 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat: US8510 may be to another model.

My 6 year old is currently using an 28”, -10 Easton S750c which is a great bat but way too end loaded for him to work on swing mechanics. Is the 27”, -10 Rawlings 5150 a more balanced bat? Is it lighter in actual weight also? Thank!

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA is a pretty well balanced bat, yes. We weighed a random 5150 -10 USA here in the call center, and a bat listed at 19 oz weighed in at 21 oz, just to give you an idea. Most all of the USA certified bats seem to weigh in 1-2oz heavier than the listed weight unfortunately.

Looking at a 27" bat for 7 year old coach pitch. We currently have an Easton MAKO USSSA which has bad vibration and is now illegal in our league. What is your opinion on this Rawlings 5150 vs the Easton S650?

This 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat (US8510) will be a -10 while the 2018 Easton S650 -9 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18S6509) is a -9 bat. If you had a 27" size of each bat, the 5150 would be the lighter bat. Both bats have received solid reviews so far as well. I don't know that either will have exceptional vibration reduction technology, but my suggestion would probably be for the 5150 since it is the lighter bat.

My son is 4 ft tall and weighs 55 pounds. I need a bat that has some pop in it. Does this Rawlings -10 bat come in a 27"/16 oz size?

Rawlings does make this bat in a -11 model, called the 2018 Rawlings 5150 -11 USA (US8511). However we are sold out of the 27"/16 oz size, as are most other vendors that we are aware of.

I need a 30 inch, 20 ounce bat. Given the fact that your USA bats are 2 ounces heavier than listed I cannot buy your listed bat. Do you have a 30 inch 18 ounce bat that would be a true 20 ounce bat?

The only -12 USA bats that we carry have a 2 1/4" barrel diameter. They are the Easton Beast X Hyperlite (YSB18BXHL) and the Easton S450 (YSB18S450).

Is this a BBCOR bat? We were told that we are not allowed to use BBCOR bats in our Cal Ripken League.

This 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat (US8510) is not a BBCOR bat and so it would be approved for use in the Cal Ripken League.

Does anybody make a drop -13, like a 30 inch 17 oz.?

Unfortunately, the lightest big barrel USA bats feature a -11 length to weight ratio, such as the 2018 Rawlings 5150 -11 USA Baseball Bat: US8511.

Can this bat be legally used in USSSA play?

Yes, you can use USA bats such as the 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat: US8510 in USSSA play.

My question is not just on this bat, but all bats. With the new USA specs, are they making any with a 2 3/4" barrel?

USA bats are required to have a 2 5/8" barrel or smaller, so there will not be any 2 3/4" barrel USA bats.

I've seen people say this bat is about 2 oz heavier then what it reads. Was this the same with the past 5150? My son has 2017 5150 27" -10. Will the 2018 weigh the same as the 2017?

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat: US8510 does come in roughly 2 ounces more than the listed weight on the bat. Unfortunately though we are not sure what the USSSA model of the Rawlings 5150 model would have weighed in 2017.

Is the barrel on the -10 bigger than the -11? Is the sweet spot bigger than the -11?

The barrel length and sweet spot on the 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat: US8510 would be marginally larger than the 2018 Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat: US8V11.

Would you recommend this bat for my kid?

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA Baseball Bat (US8510) is a great one piece alloy bat. It isnt the most balanced bat, may be geared toward more power hitters. If these specs meet your standards, then yes i would recommend this bat.

Mick Expert

I noticed that there are different alloy bats. I have seen Advanced Thermal Alloy, Acoustic Alloy, 7050 Aircraft Alloy, 5150 alloy, etc. I'm sure there are other aluminum materials as well. (1) Is there a difference between these? (2) Is there a difference for the hitter from one alloy to another? (3) Does one have more pop than the other?

There is minor differences in the aluminum material. For example, the Acoustic Alloy has a very loud "ping" sound on contact. All bats are going to perform a little differently and whether a hitter prefers one over another is a personal preference.
