Pros: 400 foot bombs but stings reel baad
Cons: thumbs up
Pros: we were impressed with the performance of the new Adidas bag at the minute our son put in his hands. Great pop off the bat and glad that somebody gave us a direction on the Adidas product more so than their competitors.
Cons: we have not found any downside to the bed yet itâ€™s a good solid product and once again just the great pop off the bat
Pros: Great feedback from a Division 1 College school that used these bats as their go to this past two seasons. Liked it and now our son who will start playing HS ball next year is working into using this bat now in BP. Nice feel of the ball off the bat so far and no vibration at all. Who says a shoe company can't make a bat
Cons: None so far
Pros: started with easton beast whiteout couldnt hit to save his life it was just a little too big took a chance bought this one size smaller and hes been on fire ever since and he absolutely loves the bat
Pros: Best 5150 by far, crazy pop with a good amount of stiffness. one of the only bats that are this light and can still put the ball out of the yard
Cons: the vibration is there but its not anything overwelming
Pros: Felt little to no vibration, tons of pop, overall the exact bat you want
Pros: Great pop. Solid feel at impact. He's very confident at the plate with this in his hands.
Cons: It's been a cold spring, so there's a touch more vibration at time that he'd like, but I think that will diminish in warm weather.

How end loaded is this bat and how does it differ from the Easton Beast X Speed?
The 2018 Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 is slightly end-loaded as this bat is a hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle. As for how this bat compares to the Easton Beast X Speed, this bat is a one-piece alloy model with a balanced swing weight.
I'm looking for a BBCOR bat for my 7th grader. In the past he used a Easton S2 and really liked it. I think he liked the slight flex feeling of the 2-piece design. Especially for the price, I'm considering this bat, but I'm nervous of the review about vibration/sting. Just looking for a little more input on what to expect if we tried this bat.
The 2018 Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 will feature a similar concept design of the Easton S2 as both are/were hybrid bats with an alloy barrel and composite handle. As far as sting, with the 30 day guarantee that Adidas offers one can rest assured that they will not be stuck with the bat after use if one is finding the vibration too great to handle.
How does this bat differ from the EQT X2?
The 2018 Adidas AeroBurner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 features a slightly end-loaded swing weight, two-piece design with the AeroBurner alloy and composite handle. This bat will differ from the older Adidas EQT X2 BBCOR Baseball Bat: X2 as the barrel materials have changed as well as the taper of the model. Both bats will have the two-piece hybrid design with the end-loaded swing weight.

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 is very similar in terms of balanced swing weight to that of the LS Omaha 517. Any difference would be slight and more personal opinion as both bats are one-piece alloy models featuring plastic end caps.

Does the 5150 or Rawlings Trio have the same sweet spot length?
Unfortunately it is impossible to determine how long the sweet spot may be on the 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 compared to the Trio. Generally speaking, since the Trio is end-loaded there will most likely be a slightly smaller sweet spot but this smaller sweet spot might produce greater pop due to the concentration in weight.

What are the differences between the 2018 5150 and the 2017 VELO?
This 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB853) and the 2017 VELO BBCOR (BB7V) bat are very similar bats, but there are differences. They are both alloy material, but their alloy materials are built a little differently (overall, I don't think one is significantly better than the other / that being said, the VELO alloy material is probably louder sounding at contact). The large difference between the bats is that the 2017 VELO has a composite end-cap. That end-cap makes the bat feel lighter and more balanced than the 5150. The large advantage to the VELO Bats is that they are probably the most balanced feeling bat on the market.
