Pros:  The Combat VIGOR is a great bat for the price. I bought the 2016 at the end of the season for $99.99 for my son to use in this fall , the 1st season on the 60/90 fields (13's). Hes a smaller kid and weighs less than 90 lbs. I bought a BBCOR bat but it was just too big and heavy. We bought this knowing it would only use used for a single year. He struggled at 1st but this weekend really swung the bat well and went 4 for 5. He likes the feel and the balanced swing weight. It looks like an aluminum bat but its really a single piece composite. Overall it's been a great bat for the short period of time that he's used it so far.

Cons:  None yet. Has only been used for about 6 games. I will update the review if any problems are noticed.

Pros:  Bought this bat 31x26 for my son to play one last season of travel ball before he tries to make the middle school team next year. He will be required to swing a -3 at tryouts. Bat feels really balanced and has a large barrell. He went through the proper break in procedure and the ball really jumps off this bat when hit on the barrell. The fact that this bat is selling at such a reduced price due to Combat no longer making bats makes it a no brainer. This is a top shelf bat

Cons:  make sure you like the feel of a 1 piece bat. My son prefers 1 piece

Pros:  This bat is a steal for the price. I've hit with both this bat and the 2017 maxum and this one hits just as well if not better than the maxum and feels slightly lighter compared to the maxum. This bat is by far the best buy within it's price range

Pros:  Ok so our son made the local 12 u travel team, so we started looking for him a bat. A friend recommended justbats.com so after reading review after review we decided to go with the new 2016 Easton XL 3. What a GREAT choice we made.

Batting 9 in the batting order he hit a dinger over the center field fence in his first at bat !!!! Man was we so proud his first ever home run !!!

Cons:  None so far

My son is 13 and next year he'll have to use a drop -5 so I thought I'd buy something decent he could practice with and occassionally use. Anyway, his drop -10 died so he had to use this bat for the tournament this weekend! Wow, the first game he went 3/4 with great pop. The second game he hit his first home run, priceless!

Pros:  My son plays 13U baseball. His first time up with this bat he hit a line drive triple over the left fielder's head. He hit the ball hard during his other at bats as well so it seems that this bat has good pop and he really likes it.

Cons:  Unfortunately, during my son's second game using this bat, he hit the ball off the end of the bat and the end cap broke and half of it came off the bat rendering the bat useless.

My son is 13 yrs old and 6 foot. What size bat would you recommend for travel ball? The coach mentioned -5.

Depending on how much he weighs will determine what size bat we would recommend for him. Each kid is going to be able to use different sizes but the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: VIGSL105 would be a good option since he will have to go up to a -3 once he reaches high school ball.

Is this bat certified for play in 14u travel baseball?

More than likely the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: VIGSL105 would be approved for travel ball play unless there is a rule against a composite barrel bat. Since travel ball leagues and organizations do not have to follow a unified set of guidelines we would recommend reaching out to local coaches and league officials to learn what, if any, bat rules may exist.

Does this bat have the rotating handle? Or is that a different bat series. I personally don't like the twisting barrel. And do end loaded bats have more pop than balanced bats? I'm a stronger kid for my age and size and am strongly considering the weight distribution.

This bat does not having the rotating handle technology. That was implemented in the Torq line of Easton bats. End loaded bats can provide more power due to the added weight in the barrel providing more mass at contact, at the cost of a heavier swing weight. They are suited to power hitters who can handle the added swing weight.

What is difference in 2016 Easton XL3 and 2016 Mako XL if both are -5 and same length?

Both the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 and the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK5 are end-loaded models. The big difference between the two is the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK5 will be an all composite model with a connection point, allowing this bat to reduce vibration more so on off-centered hits, while the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 is a one-piece all alloy bat.

What does it mean to be -5, or -6, or -7?

Those number represent the length to weight ratio which is a way of measuring the bats. You take the length of the bat and subtract that number and that gives you the weight of the bat. The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 is a -5 so if it is a 30" bat, then it would be a 25 oz.

My kid is a 7th grader that is 5'7" and weighs 110 lbs. Do you recommend this bat in -5 for him (he has a 32"/24 oz right now)?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35) in the same 32" length (as his current bat), as long as he can handle the subsequent 27 oz weight (and the end-loaded swing weight). As a 7th grader, I think that moving to a -5 bat is smart so that you can prepare to use the BBCOR (-3) bats that are required in high school.

End cap on my son's XL3 broke into pieces after he hit a ball on the edge of the barrel and end cap. There is no other structural damage to the barrel, its just the end cap. Can the end cap be purchased or replaced or does the entire bat need to be returned to Easton?

This bat would have to be sent back to Easton for replacement as retailers will not carry any of the parts that comprise the bat(s).

My son is 13 years old, 5' feet tall and 115 pounds (13-15 year old division of Babe Ruth). What size of this bat would you recommend (he previously swung a 31"/19 oz bat)?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting a 30" model of a Youth Big Barrel/Senior League baseball bat. It may be a bit of an adjustment, but if you feel that your player can handle the end-loaded 25 oz weight of the 30" option of this 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35), then I would recommend getting this bat in the size option.

The difference between the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 and the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 is the drop (or weight) of the bat. The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 is a drop 8 while the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 is a drop 5.

Is this bat legal for Junior Babe Ruth?

Unfortunately, I was not able to determine the exact division of Babe Ruth baseball to which you were referring. If you were referring the 13-15 year old division, then yes, this 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35) will be legal for use.

My son is 11 yo and pretty strong for his age. He's 4'9 and weighs 90 lbs. He used a 28 in Louisville Slugger Assault last year and loved it. We know he needs to move up in size, however would like to know your recommendations. Looking for a comparable alternative to the assault?

Based upon your player's height and weight, we would recommend going with a 30" model of Youth Big Barrel/Senior league bat. This 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35) will be a single-piece, all-alloy bat like the Assault; but be end-loaded in its swing weight (the Assault was balanced). As well, this specific XL3 model has a -5 length-to-weight ratio. For an 11 year old player I would be more likely recommend a bat that has a -8 length-to-weight ratio like the SL16X38 model.

How does the 2016 Easton XL3 differ from the 2015 XL3? Paint job only? Material difference?

The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 is going to feature an extra-long barrel design that expands the hitting zone and HYPERSKIN Grip while the 2015 Easton XL3 will not. You are correct in saying the cosmetics are different but they will feature the same Hyperlite Matrix Alloy that is said to create an expanded sweet spot and greater durability.
