What are the differences between the 2018 5150 and the 2017 VELO?
This 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB853) and the 2017 VELO BBCOR (BB7V) bat are very similar bats, but there are differences. They are both alloy material, but their alloy materials are built a little differently (overall, I don't think one is significantly better than the other / that being said, the VELO alloy material is probably louder sounding at contact). The large difference between the bats is that the 2017 VELO has a composite end-cap. That end-cap makes the bat feel lighter and more balanced than the 5150. The large advantage to the VELO Bats is that they are probably the most balanced feeling bat on the market.
