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

Cons:  a little bit of vibration

Pros:   Today a local training facility had a Easton bat demo day, in which you could try all the new 2017 bats from Easton. My favorite bat that I tried was the XL3. Honestly, I tried the new 2017 Mako Beast XL, and I thought it had decent pop, but it felt like it had a heavier MOI (Moment of Inertia), or swing weight than the BBCOR version of the Mako Beast XL, and the Xl3. I also believe the 2016 model has equal or better performance than new Beast XL. The Xl3 is the superior bat this year because I feel like it has a much lower swing weight than Beast XL, even though they are both labeled as a top heavy bats. I also believe I can get my hand threw the zone much quicker because of that lower swing weight, and I believe both bats have great bats have great pop, but in my opinion if you hit the ball right, the XL3 has a much better feel on contact.

Cons:  None yet on this astounding bat.

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.

You can't use this bat in Babe Ruth play can you?

Unfortunately, the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: VIGSL105 is not legal for play in Babe Ruth. The 2 5/8" barrel diameter, composite design, and lack of BBCOR certification make it illegal for play in Babe Ruth.

Durability has not been a problem we have had with the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (VIGSL105). The Vigor has had very good reviews and people have liked it a lot so far.

I'm 14 years old. Last year, I had a -8, XL3 and did well. I was just wanting to know which bat would have more pop? Should I stay with an XL3 or get something different?

Since you did well with the XL3 (-8) last season, I would recommend getting another XL3, but moving up to the -5 length-to-weight ratio. This 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17X35) will feature a -5 length-to-weight ratio and a decent end-loaded feel like the bat you have used in the past.

My son is 5'3" and 130 lbs. He is 12 years old and is ready to move up to a (-5). I'm thinking about purchasing him the 31x26 in this bat. Do you think this is the right size for him? Also, he had the S3 last year and dented/cracked 2 of them. Is this bat a lot more durable than the S3?

Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest the 31" 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X35, as you mentioned. The 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X35 will be more durable than the lighter S3 he swung previously.

Looking for an end-loaded, one piece bat to provide some extra power for my 10U contact hitter. Would you recommend this bat?

If you are looking for a one-piece bat with an end-loaded swing weight, I would definitely recommend this 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17X35). The end-load will definitely benefit a power hitter. Also, as long as the -5 length-to-weight ratio is optimal for him, this would definitely be the bat to get.
