Pros:  a bat rep held a demo at our local little league complex. he brought Rawlings, Demarini, Easton. Prior to the demo, I had already settled on a new Ghost X -10 for my 11 yr old who will be 12 in 2018 LL season. He hit with all of them, he preferred the Rawlings Velo -5. Most everyone in our area is all Easton. We have had 5 different Mako's and loved them all but he said the Rawlings felt the best, so that's what I got. As far as lack of pop, he was still able to drive the ball 200 ft, same as he could with the Easton 32/20 mako that he has now. This bat makes a huge "ping". Reminds you of the good old days before composites.

Cons:  None so far, bat was demo'd only.

If your son was 12 yrs old, 5'5'', 160lbs, solid, strong and quick hands, like my son. Would you buy your son this Rawlings Velo -5 or the Slugger 718 -5?

Both are great bats. If your son like end loaded bats, the Slugger Select 718 is perfect for him. It is slightly end loaded with a three piece design to allow for sting reduction. If he prefers balanced, the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat (US8V5) would be the bat for him. The Velo is a hybrid as well, and will have nice sting reduction, but not as much as the Select 718.

What is the value of the composite end cap?

The composite end cap on the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 helps take weight away from the end of the bat to make it more balanced and lighter swinging.

I've seen the word "Hybrid" associated with some of the new USA bats like this VELO -5. Does having a composite end cap make it a Hybrid or is there composite somewhere in the barrel?

The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 is considered a "hybrid bat" due to the composite end cap. The rest of the bat, including the barrel, is made from alloy.
