Pros:  BOTH BATS ARE EXCEPTIONAL, WELL MADE, GREAT GRIPS ETC.. In my opinion the Velo has better pop than the 918, for 100 less dollars it is a great value.

Cons:  NONE, HOW EVER MY 10 YEAR OLD LIKES THE VELO BETTER THAN THE 918.

Pros:  light, balanced with good pop. Purchased this as a second bat to use against hard throwing pitchers for my son who plays 10u travel ball. After a few hitting sessions bat is broken in nicely and my son likes it.

Cons:  After two weeks of using bat no complaints.

Pros:  Feels solid and I'm sure the other ratings are indicative of how well it hits, but it is significantly heavier than the stated weight.

Cons:  Ordered a 28/16 and 27/15. The 28 weighed 18.5oz and the 27 weighed even more at 18.75 ozs. I wanted my son to like the bat, but I was buying a drop 12 for a reason. Ended up going with an Easton because it was closest to advertised weight.

Pros:  This bat really made a huge difference in swing speed for my son who plays 9U travel ball. He loves this bat which has improved his confidence and you know what that does for young players! Many of his team mates use his bat and have asked their parents to buy them one. Great Pop, Feel, and no Vibration. Awesome all around product for this age range. I ended up buying the 2017 due to JustBats review for best bats for a 9 year old. Was a great choice!!

Cons:  Many of his team mates want to use it and in the 9U world this can cause on deck problems! Seriously only con is the previous model 2017 cracked within 2 months, I don't know if this was because of not breaking in correctly? If too many kids were using it and not taking care of it in dugout? Anyway Rawlings sent me the 2018 version since it was still in warranty. The only thing I don't understand is why you only receive one warranty claim per bat? If it cracks it cracks and if you just received a new one and it is under a year you should be justified in AGAIN receiving a replacement. So anyway we are making sure this one is being taken care of and overall great product!

Pros:  This bat is the most complete bat I have ever bought. The balance of this -12 is amazing. Most -12 bats are very top heavy but not this one. My son plays on my 12U team and is getting better bat speed than ever before. The pop is awesome and the feel of the ball coming off the bat is unreal. Zero vibration. The grips on the Rawlings are in my opinion the best grips on the market. Not that it makes a difference in performance, but this bat simply looks good. The paint and finish so far have been durable as well. My son’s confidence has exploded since hitting with this bat. If you are trying to decide between this bat and any other -12, don’t look any longer. I have bought 10-12 bats over the past 10 years for my 3 sons who all played travel ball in different age classes and this bat is the most complete bat I have ever bought.

Cons:  Absolutely nothing.

Pros:  This bat exceeded out of the wrapper expectations for a composite bat. As far as being over the stated weight, I can't say, but my small 7u swings the 28-16 with confidence, speed, and absolute power when his swing falls into place. Massive sweet spot barrel. He wants to hit everyday with it, unlike his last alloy bat.

Cons:  The only con is the grip, easy change though.

Pros:  Bat is very hot. Has tons of pop and is super balanced. My son plays on a 9U travel baseball team and loves this bat. It has little to no vibration. The bat flies through the zone.

Cons:  The durability is the issues here. We bought this bat last July when it first came out. It was cracked by October. Rawlings was awesome and they had us a new bat in less then a week. Sadly the replacement bat cracked last night. So basically he has only been able to get about 3 or so months of use out of each bat. My son I would say is an average height and weight for a 9 year old. He does have very quick hands and swings hard. So I don't know if he is to much for the bat or it is poor quality, I understand there is a trade off for a bat that is hot and the durability of a bat. but this is kind of inexcusable. a 9 year old should not be able to crack two bats with in a six month time frame.

My soon to be 8 yr old is a contact hitter at only 52 lbs and 4'3" tall. I was trying to decide between the Ghost X Hyperlite or Rawlings Velo, both 29 inch. Which do you suggest?

It's difficult to recommend one bat over the other. However, the 2018 Rawlings Velo -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V12 does have good reviews. I think this would be a good option for your player.

What's the difference between this bat and the 2018 Rawlings Quatro UT8Q34? I have a 75 pound 12U Travel player who plays about 80 games a year.

The 2018 Rawlings Velo -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (UT8V12) is a drop 12 while the Quatro is a drop 10. The quatro is also a 4 piece composite whereas the UT8V12 is a 2 piece composite. Quatro also includes a more advanced endcap and connection point that is lighter and allows it to reduce swing weight as well as more flex and vibration reduction.

Is there any difference in this bat compared to the 2017 model 2 piece composite Velo? The SL7V12 drop 12 composite.

The 2017 model and the 2018 Rawlings Velo -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V12 are made of the same material with the same design, so the only difference is cosmetic.
