Pros:  Great pop, great feel, very little vibration, too early to grade the durability.

Cons:  Bad grip as good as this bat is, I wished they would went to a cheap grip compare to the last two power brigade bats I've bought.

Pros:  Very balanced for increased bat speed but still looking for the huge sweet spot everyone raves about. Thru 3 tourneys and still not performing like i had expected.

Cons:  Doesn't have the pop I expected....switched from an XL1 to the Mako and am not impressed at all actually very disappointed. Easton went cheap with the grip, it cracks easily. Seems like the 2 1/4 barrel makos have way more pop. The huge price tag doesn't hold up when the bat doesn't play like its supposed to.

Pros:  nice feel,balance

Cons:  does not have near the pop of the older orange makos. I spent 300.00 plus dollars my son no longer uses it. He uses his old 2015 mako and the team demarini c7. My son's friend is returning his 2016 mako same reason "no pop"

Pros:  Huge barrel and sweet spot. Plenty of pop! This is the second MAKO my son has owned. He mentions every time he uses it how much more he likes it better than his last one. (The first one was just fine.)

Cons:  None. I hope it's as durable as his last one.

Pros:  I purchased this Bat for my son that plays travel ball and he loves the bat and the 27" with -10 drop was perfect for him. It has a different sound when compared to his older bat and the price was far better than other sites. Thanks Just Bats for a great product and very fast shipping.

Cons:  None!

Pros:   First off great bat. As a player starting their 12u season, this was a great buy. The 2 3/4 barrel adds for easy contact. The TCT Thermo composite in this bat is insane. As a power hitter, this thing can produce major distance. Whether you're a power-hitter, or someone who needs a little confidence at the plate, I would definitely check this bat out.

Cons:  However, this bat does come with some downs. The bat is a little more heavy than described. It feels more like a -8.5 or -9. Anyways it's a good buy.

My son is 9 and is 4"7" tall and weighs 80 lbs. Which bat do you recommend?

We would probably recommend a 29" length for his height and weight. This Easton Mako Senior League (SL16MK10B) would be a good option if you mostly play USSSA travel tournament baseball. It would not be legal if you play in a league that requires the new USA Baseball bat certification though.

Rawlings Velo Hybrid 2017 or Easton Mako? Which would be 30' w/ 2 3/4 barrel?

Both the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B and the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 will feature a 2 3/4 barrel diameter. We have both of these bats available in a 30" 20oz option.

Is this a "USA baseball" approved bat? If not, which bats do you have that do have the USA Baseball stamp of approval?

The Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is approved for USSSA play, but does not meet the USA baseball qualifications. The most similarly available bat to this Easton MAKO available will be the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10. The Ghost X is a two-piece fully composite with a balanced swing, available in a drop 10. With that being said, the new qualifications will ensure that the performance of these new USA bats will be substantially lower than all of the bats in the past.

This is the 2 piece composite Easton bat like the -12 Easton 2 piece but in a senior league bat correct? My son has the 2 1/4 version but has white on the handle and this one is black. The only black one I've seen is the alloy barrel; I do not want the alloy barrel.

The Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is a two-piece composite model featuring a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. Easton did make a MAKO featuring a two-piece composite design in a -12 model but these bats featured a 2 1/4" barrel diameter. The senior league version of the MAKO in the -12 with the 2 3/4" barrel diameter was the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST HYPERLITE -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK12B; this bat was a one-piece all composite.

My son is about to turn 12. What size bat should I get him?

For most 12 year old players we are suggesting a bat with a 30" length to it. This 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) is unfortunately not being offered in the 30"/20 oz size. As well, this bat features the -10 length-to-weight ratio and 2 3/4" barrel diameter. Bats this lite with the large 2 3/4" barrel typically do not hold up well in regard to durability. I would recommend looking to a bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and -8 length-to-weight ratio for a 12 year old player. Probably a 30"/22 oz size is the one to try and find.

How does this bat compare to the Louisville Omaha 517 bat?

The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B and the LS Omaha 517 bat are both very good bats but they are completely different. The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is a two-piece fully composite bat with a balanced swing weight while the LS Omaha 517 is a one-piece fully balanced alloy bat. The MAKO will run a little heavier but is better equipped at reducing vibration from off-centered hits.

Is this bat legal for 13-15 year old? Or the leagues known as Babe Ruth or Junior League?

The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B features a 2 3/4" barrel and is better suited for players from the ages of 7-11.

Unfortunately, the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is not approved for play in Babe Ruth. It is not BBCOR certified either. The combination of the 2 3/4" barrel and not being BBCOR certified make it illegal for play in Babe Ruth.

My son is 12 years old 4'8" and 94 lbs. I'm looking for a bat that he can use this and next year in the park league.

The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is probably going to be to small of a bat for your player. If your player is allowed to swing a big barrel bat, I would suggest a 2 5/8" barrel for a player of his age. I would look at a 30" bat based on his size, and if he can, moving to a -8, but a -10 would also work if you wanted to stay on the lighter side. Here are a couple bats for you to take a look at: 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 or the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8.

My son is 4'5" and 62 lbs. He currently has a 29"/19 oz. Should we stick with the same size at 12U?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) in the 29" size. However, if you want something that he can grow into with time, I would recommend looking to the 30" model of the bat as long as he can handle the 20 oz weight.

My son is 11, 48 inches tall and weighs around 70 lbs. I just purchased a big barrel senior 29/19 for him. Is this a good bat size or would a 30 be better?

Based on your son's height and weight, I think the 29" 19 oz. model is the ideal size for him.

How does this bat compare to the Combat MAXUM?

The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) and the 2016 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat are both full composite bats. The Easton MAKO is a two-piece, balanced designed composite and will feature better vibration technology to help reduce stinging sensation from off-centered hits. Being that it is a two-piece design, it will offer more flex which is typically preferred by contact hitters. The COMBAT MAXUM is a one-piece design that will allow for a stiffer feeling (preferred by power hitters) but won't have the same anti-vibration technology. Both bats would be great options that offer massive sweet spots.

What is the difference between this bat and the S1?

There are quite a few differences between the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B and the 2015 Easton S1 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15S110. The S1 is going to have an IMX advanced composite barrel which is said to give ultra-responsive hitting surface that lowers swing weight while the MAKO features the TCT Thermo Composite Technology which is said to create a massive sweet pot and unmatched bat speed. Additionally, the 2016 MAKO comes with HYPERSKIN Grip while the 2015 S1 does not.

What are the main differences between the Easton MAKO and DeMarini's new bat? Is one more end-loaded?

It would depend on which DeMarini model you are referring to as they have several different models of bats in the 2016 line. The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) compares most closely with the 2016 DeMarini CF8 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFZ). They are very similar by design. The CF8 may have a bit better balance while the MAKO has a bigger sweet spot due to the extended barrel length.

My son is 13 years old. He weighs between 85-95 pounds and he is 4 foot 11. What length and weight bat do you recommend?

Based on height and weight, we would recommend a 30 inch bat. At his age we would typically not recommend a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter like what is featured on the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B). We would recommend something with a 2 5/8 inch diameter and possibly a -10 or -8 depending on how strong the player is.

Why does the MAKO come in 2 5/8 & 2 3/4? Does one have more pop than the other? My son has always used the S3 with good results. Would the MAKO provide more pop once broken-in?

"Pop" is more of a term that is associated with the skill of the player rather than a measurable feature of the bat. Due to performance restrictions imposed for safety reasons, most bats within the same certification category will perform to the same level at their peak. The difference, and what you end up paying for, is the feel of the bat (balanced vs. end-loaded, one-piece vs two-piece, barrel size, etc.) and the durability of the bat (how long the bat will perform at that peak level). Which one is best would depend on what you are looking for in those aspects compared to the price range you are looking to stay in. That being said, the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) has a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter because some leagues allow that size while others only allow up to a 2 5/8 inch barrel like the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10). They should perform similarly as they are both USSSA regulated but you get more room for error with the 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter and may be able to barrel up the ball more easily.

Is there anything different from this one and the 2014 model. My player just turned 12. He is about 105 pounds. What size would you recommend?

The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) is very similar in construction to the previous models of the bat. The grip has been slightly changed and it has different graphics. The size we would recommend would be based on a combination of both height and weight rather than one or the other. If you can provide his height we would be better able to size him.

The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) does not have the TORQ handle. The 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MKT10B) would be the model that does but it is not currently available for pre-sale.

Need an expert opinion. My son plays 10U travel ball for BPA and USSSA and I am in the market to get him a decent bat. He currently has been using the Miken Freak 2 3/4 (Black and green) for the past 2 yrs. Great bat with good pop but it was discontinued a long time back. In fact one of our kids has a Demarini CF8 that I would put his Freak up against any day of the week. However he is ready for a new one I think. I like the Rawlings and have seen good performance from them in the past (awesome sound). The only negative thing I have ever read or seen is some dent easily. I noticed you guys have lowered 2017 prices. So I am interested in two drop -10 senior 2 3/4 models. One is the Velo SL7V34 and the other is the 5150 SL7534. Can you tell me what is the difference and which is the better performer in your opinion? Are both subject to dent easily? Thanks for your help!!

The difference between the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 and the 2017 Rawlings 5150 is the type of aluminum used and the Velo features a composite end cap. The composite end cap will create a more balanced feel over the Rawlings 5150 and the Acoustic Alloy will feature higher performance than the 5150. All in all the Rawlings Velo is going to be a higher end bat. We have not taken many warranty replacements for denting on either.

With this bat being the 2017 model, does the one year warranty still apply if purchased in December of 2017 or into 2018?

The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 will feature a 12 month warranty through Rawlings from the date of purchase if a new model is being selected. Thus a bat purchased today would have a warranty from Rawlings until 12/4/18.

How does this compare to a 5150?

The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34, when compared to the 5150, are very similar bats. The main difference is the composite end cap used on the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34. This gives the bat a more balanced swing weight and slightly larger sweet spot when compared to the 5150.

How does the Velo compare to the Marucci Hex Alloy? Which bat bat will feel lighter in a drop 10? Lastly will the 5/8 feel any different in swing weight form the 3/4?

The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7V34) is very comparable to the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) in that they are both one piece aluminum designs with balanced swing weights. Where the Velo will be different is in its Silver Comp Lite End Cap and Acoustic Alloy. Due to the composite end cap it will be a little bit more balanced the the Hex and the swing weight will feel very similar in the 2 5/8" and 2 3/4" barrels.

In regards to the SL7V34 vs. the SL7V12, what are their true weight on scale for the 28/16 (SL7V12) & the 28/18 (SL7V34)? I know sometimes the drop weight is not the true weight and trying to see the difference.

The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 is going to weigh about half an ounce more than the listed weight, and the SLV712 is going to weigh close to an ounce more than the listed weight.

Both the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 and the Marucci Hex Alloy are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. Both of these bats are great ones to consider and it would really come down to personal preference.

I am trying to decide between two bats for a 9U boy entering kid pitch. What is the advantage of having the Rawlings VELO Senior League vs. the Rawlings 5150 Senior League bat?

Both this 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7V34) and the 2017 Rawlings 5150 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7534) will be excellent bats for use by your player. However, this VELO will feature a few more extra technologies on it. Those extra technologies will include a composite end-cap to make the bat feel more balanced swinging overall and updated pOp 2.0 technology to allow for more flex and performance. If you are wanting to get the bat with the most technology, I would recommend this VELO.

Are there any technological differences between this bat and the 2016 model besides the color scheme and graphics? Will the 2017 model be available in a drop 8?

The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 features enhanced durability and precision technology that allows for an increase in flex and pop compared to the 2016 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SLVR10. Unfortunately Rawlings did not produce the 2017 VELO in a -8 length to weight ratio so we will not have that size available in this model.

Description for 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34
New for 2017! The Rawlings VELO has earned a reputation for being one of the lightest and fastest swinging baseball bats on the market from year to year and the newest version completely backs it up. Never in the history of baseball have more pitchers touched 90+ mph so hitters have less time to react at the dish, and there's no time for error. If the game is evolving to become this fast, then shouldn't your bat be? Thanks to the VELO's Silver Comp Lite composite end cap that is fiber reinforced, unnecessary weight is removed from the end of the barrel, shifting the MOI towards the player's hands. If your increased swing speed or the awesome cosmetics don't turn heads at the ball field, the enhanced pop and resonating ping from the acoustic alloy surely will. Rawlings' acoustic alloy enhances the durability and is the loudest alloy on the market - the proof is in the ping! Not only does this VELO offer the loudest ping in the industry, but the precision laser pOp 2.0 creates a lasered groove through the sweet spot that increases flexibility and the trampoline effect. Extreme balance, an explosive swing speed, and massive pop are the three things that make up the winning combination the VELO offers. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro!

This 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 features a -10 length to weight ratio, a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter, and the USSSA 1.15 BPF Certification.
