Pros:  Just received this bat, so too early to tell how it performs but wanted to give everyone an idea of the true weight... since everyone seems to be having the same problem with players aged 5-7 and the new USA bat rules, I was excited to see a -12 that had the bigger barrel finally released. I bought a 28/16. The true weight is 17.5 ounces. For comparison my son has a Demarini Uprising -10 27/17 that weights in at 19 ounces that he could swing pretty well (and has awesome pop for an aluminum 2 1/4 barrel) but was a tad too heavy for him. Will 1.5 ounces make any difference? Not sure yet. I'll try and post a follow up after it's broken in.

Cons:  None so far other than the typical weighs more than the actual printed weight

Pros:  Weight is actually awesome. My 9yr old (10 May 29) just got the 30/18. Ordered late Monday and got Thursday in time for Saturdays game. Friday worked him out and he loved it. Game Day today went hitless, with bases loaded the lead off hitter asked if he could use it. Bombed a deep double. No "ping" noise off bat which is misleading but the ball really jumps off the bat. This evening we went and had BP and hitting the sweet spot is like GOLD!!!! miss the sweet spot you do get the sting! We've only hit for 3days but very impressed so far!

Cons:  miss the sweet spot and you get some discomfort

Pros:  My son was struggling at the plate his last 3 games. I got him this bat and he went 3 for 3 with a home run, double and single. He is very happy and loves the bat. The ball pops off the bat and the -12 length to weight ratio is perfect for him. This is a great product and would recommend to everyone

Cons:  None

Does this bat have a good pop to it as far as sound? We are having trouble finding a good USA labeled bat. We purchased one and it sounds dead as a door-nail.

With the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 being a newer release we do not know much about this bat pertaining to its performance or durability. With it being a composite bat it will feature more of a wood like sound. Since these new USA bats have thicker walls the sound off the bat will differ compared to the USSSA bats players have been using previously.

I'm shopping for a player who is 4'8" & 91 lbs. What size would you recommend? Also, do you know the true weight of this bat yet?

We would suggest a 30" length for their height and weight. Any bat purchased will weigh about .5-2oz heavier than the listed amount due to factors like the paint, end cap glue, and grip tape adhesive not being factored into the listed weight, so the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA (US9T12) would fall somewhere in that range most likely.

The 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 does not feature the same composite material as the Quatro.

What's the true/actual weight on this one?

At this time we have not had the chance to weigh the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 as we do not have this model currently in our showroom.

What type of break in is required?

The 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 is a composite bat so it will require a short break in period. Composite baseball bats are going to need around 150 to 200 hits on them to start performing up to their potential. When breaking in a composite baseball bat, it is important to start off at about 50% power and gradually increase as your swing count rises. It is also important to rotate the bat about a 1/4 inch on every swing; this ensures that your bat gets evenly broken in.

How does this compare to the Solo or other similar USA bats? I'm looking for overall quality and performance. Also, does this actually ship today if purchased? It looks like it is still on pre-order on the Rawlings site.

It would be hard to compare the 2018 Rawlings Threat -12 USA Baseball Bat: US9T12 to other USA bats as this is a new release model and we do not know much currently about the bat from a performance or swing weight feel. This is a big barrel -12 model which is the first one we have carried and it would ship as we do have them in stock.
