Pros:  Great pop. Solid feel at impact. He's very confident at the plate with this in his hands.

Cons:  It's been a cold spring, so there's a touch more vibration at time that he'd like, but I think that will diminish in warm weather.

How is the balance of the bat? What I have right now is a Louisville Slugger 517. How does this bat match up to the 5150?

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 is very similar in terms of balanced swing weight to that of the LS Omaha 517. Any difference would be slight and more personal opinion as both bats are one-piece alloy models featuring plastic end caps.

I'm 5’9’’ and 145 lbs, what length is best for me?

Typically speaking, a player of your size will swing a 32" BBCOR bat. Furthermore, this 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 would be an excellent option for you considering the the pOp 2.0 technology in place to create an enormous sweet spot.

Does the 5150 or Rawlings Trio have the same sweet spot length?

Unfortunately it is impossible to determine how long the sweet spot may be on the 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 compared to the Trio. Generally speaking, since the Trio is end-loaded there will most likely be a slightly smaller sweet spot but this smaller sweet spot might produce greater pop due to the concentration in weight.

I'm 6'3" and 195 pounds and I plan on using a 33, should I switch to a 34"?

Based on your height and weight, you could get the 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 in either a 33 or 34 inch model; it all depends on your personal preference and what you feel most comfortable with.

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.

What is the difference from last year's and this year's?

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 and the 2017 model are really the same bats other than the cosmetics.

How is the pop on this bat and how is it overall?

Sadly, we do not have any reviews yet for this specific 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB853). However, the 5150 line of bat traditionally rates really well and I think this bat will display solid performance and durability just like the older models of the bat.
