Pros:  My 11 year old son is 5’3” 110 pounds and plays travel ball on a couple different teams across the Midwest. We tried this bat on the recommendation of his Swing Coach. We noticed a lot of pop out of the wrapper. My son has tremendous bat speed so the exit velocity was unreal. Also on the off chance he did have a mishit, the large sweet spot still sent the ball flying. Had seen mention of some sting in the hands, but my son hasn’t complained once about that. But then again the vibration usually happens on mishits. Not sure how it will hold up over the vigorous tournament schedule on tap for this spring but everything so far has been great.

Cons:  none so far

Pros:  My 11 yo son increased his batting average from .250 to .544 in 5 games with this bat. The ball flies off of this bat like a rocket! The large sweet spot is really helping out. Now 4 other kids have ordered the bat and are also seeing the difference.

Cons:  No cons as of now.

Pros:  My son plays 10u travel ball. He has used the bat in the first two tournaments and hit one out in the second tournament. If you hit the ball well it will go, if you miss hit it, your in trouble. The very end, about 2 inches seems like a dead spot to hit it. Anywhere else your in good shape. I would recommend it. Good confidence builder. Third combat to own and have been please with everyone.

Cons:  Stings the hands a little. Mishits on end of bat don't go out of infield.

Pros:  Massive Sweet Spot Balanced Feels lighter than -10 Pop...Lots of Pop The length of the sweet spot of the barrel is industry defining technology due to the one piece composite as understand. They don't need the extra few inches to weld two pieces together. Also, the pop is legit. My kids say the swing weight feels as light as their -12's, which tells me it has great balance.

Cons:  Last 2 inches near the end of bat is a big dead spot. Mishits at that location seam to have even less pop than other bats, at the same locations. But it's made up for in the massive pop in the correct sweet spot of the barrel (which is extremely large. Vibration like at the dead spots (last two inches of bat, and far inside). Can be easily managed with a rubber taper or a rubber vibration knob. The pop from the sweet spots makes you not really care about vibration from a mishit.

Pros:  Adding durability to the Pros...sons used this over 21 games, and 2 practices per week now for the entire spring & summer. Also every other week, hitting in the cages. Bat is maybe better now, than ever. Pop is on the same level as the CAT7, which has also alot of pop for a youth bat. Where MAXUM separates itself from the CAT7 is the length of the sweet spot. Maxums sweet spot extends about 2 inches further in toward the handle, which is a massive sweet spot.

Cons:  vibration at the very end of the bat. Hit it anywhere else on the barrel and watch it fly. As others have posted. Maybe the last inch or two inches of bat has vibration & dead spot.

Pros:  Great feel and pop in -10. I need two bats because I play in two leagues that require 2 3/4" and 2 5/8" barrels-so I'll probably get the 2 5/8" for when I need it. Performance is great and the ball feels good coming off. Really balanced.

Cons:  The custom lizard skin grip is nice, but I usually prefer athletic tape

Pros:  Has a lot of pop coming off the bat, my 10 yr. old loves this bat, not to mention he follows the college world series and that's all he see's them using. He's been swinging a 28 (-10) but know I have just upgraded him to a 29 (-10)

Cons:  The cons are, I just sent the 28 inch back in because of dents, my son is ten and plays 11u major, I don't know if it's because he is swinging the 28 inch and the 29 inch may be a little stronger so we are trying that in terms of longevity.

Pros:  When it was working correctly, the bat had a nice pop to it. My son really liked it until the dents and dead spots happened and the handle fell off.

Cons:  We've sent this bat back 3 times for warranty issues. It dents very easily. One bat dented on the first day of use. When it does dent, the "sweet spot" is considerably altered. You have to send it back to Louisville and it takes approximately a month to get a different bat.   The experience with their customer service is very frustrating.

Pros:  My son plays 10u and really likes this bat. It has great pop, large sweet spot and very minimal vibration. He was hitting singles with his old bat, and we could tell the ball exit speed was an issue, but not with this bat. He is now hitting over the fence, ground rule doubles, triples, etc. This is really an outstanding bat.

Cons:  There are a lot of quality comments about the bat, specifically dents. We have not had an issue with dents however, we use a sleeve for batting cages and/or we use an old bat. The issue we had is that the knob broke off after his 2nd game. It was a straight break at the neck, like it was a weak spot and possibly just a fluke. Justbats replaced this for us and so far so good with the 2nd go round. I will post again if there are any more issues. I still would recommend the bat.

My son currently plays Little League and is on a Travel Team. Could he use this bat for Little League and would he be able to use it next year as well?

The 2017 Combat Maxum -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX110) is not approved for play in Little League. For 2017, Little League will require all bats to have a 2 1/4" barrel diameter. Starting in 2018 Little League will allow bats to have a 2 5/8" but they must have the new USA Baseball stamp. We are expecting to begin receiving the 2018 bats with the new USA Baseball stamp in early September.

Does this bat meet the new 2018 bat standards for Pony Baseball? Will it have the "USABat" stamp?

No, it will not be legal under the USABat standard next year. Currently there are no bats available that are legal under the 2018 standard. We estimate manufacturers will release those bats around August/September.

How does the 30 day warranty work for the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM? Does the bat still have to be in the wrapper if you don't like it and want to return it?

A bat that features a 30 day guarantee, like the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 currently does, means a customer can use the bat within the 30 days from the purchase date and if they do not like it they can send it back to the retailer for an exchange or refund of their purchase price (even though the bat has been used).

What is (-8), (-10), (-12) on a bat? How to select the best bat from my son, he used 31/22 but I don't know negative number on the bat and what it means.

The negative number that you are seeing is the "drop, or length to weight ratio. You get this number by taking the length minus the weight. For example 31-22=9. So your sons last bat was a -9. I hope this makes sense!

My son is 11, 4'10" and 104 lbs. He plays travel. Currently he is swinging a 2016 28"/18 oz MAKO TORQ. I'm looking for the hottest bat option, as well as the best size to suit him. What are your recommendations?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I am thinking he would be able to use a 30"/20 oz size (maybe 29"/19 oz size if you think the jump to 30"/20 oz would be too much). This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX110) would be a great option to consider in the 30"/20 oz size. Another great COMBAT to consider would be the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (VIGSL110).

I have twin boys they both weight 90 lbs and are 4'5" in height they have been using Easton bat 29 inch -10 2 1/4. I would like to get them a big barrel in the Combat Maxum. What would you recommend 30 inch -10 -11 -12?

I would probably stick with the same drop they have been using at a -10, that way they can adjust to a bat that's only 1 oz heavier.

Could you tell me the difference between a 2 3/4 barrel and 2 5/8? Which would you recommend? Also, my son has a 27/17 right now. Thinking of either 28/18 or 28/17? What do you recommend?

The main difference is that a 2 3/4" barrel diameter is larger than a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, making the walls a bit thinner than the 2 5/8" version. At higher pitch velocities (65-70) this can cause durability issues. I can't really recommend a size without knowing the rough height and weight of the player.

My son is 4'7", 70 lbs and has been using an Easton S3, 28" -10 for the past two years. Would a 29" be okay, and would it matter if a -10 or -12? How does this bat compare to the Easton S3?

Based on your son's height and weight, a 29 inch bat would be a good size to get. As for the weight, this will depend on the weight of his most current bat and how you and/or his local coaches feel he was/is capable of handling this weight. If the 18 ounce bat felt too heavy then a drop 12 would be a better option. If he was handling the 18 ounce Easton S3 just fine then moving to a 29/19 would be a good route to take. The main differences between the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 and the Easton S3 will be the balance feel and the material used to make the bats. Both bats are one-piece bats with the MAXUM being fully composite and the Easton S3 fully alloy. Although both bats are labeled as balanced bats, the extended barrel of the MAXUM will make this bat more evenly balanced as well as featuring a slightly larger sweet spot.

It would be tough to say one is better than the other performance wise. The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 has a little longer barrel which gives it a larger sweet spot, but the MAKO is our best selling bat.

My son is playing kid pitch U8 next spring. He used a 26 inch, 15 ounce bat in U7. I'm looking to upgrade to a new 2 5/8 bat for next year. Do you think 27 inch 17 ounce would be too much of jump? Son is about 51 inches and 60 pounds.

It's hard to say for certain without knowing how well he handled the 26" 15oz model he used to have, but I think going up to a 27" 17oz model would be fine, depending on his strength and how much he naturally grows.

Although the exact technologies that went into the two bats were a little different, this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX110) and the past Bubba models from COMBAT were comparable bats. Both bats featured pretty length barrels and both have received great reviews from customers.

My son is 4’1” and about 56 lbs; small for a 10 year old. Would you recommend the 26/16 or the 27/17 for him? He’s been using the CAT 6 in a 26/16 and has been doing well with it. But we are looking for a great kid pitch league bat. Heard great reviews about the Omaha 517, any others you would recommend?

Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X in a 28 inch model. If you wanted to go with something smaller you could certainly do so if you feel this would be better for your player. As for the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X, this is a one-piece all alloy model featuring a balanced swing weight. It has been a well reviewed bat and would be a top choice for one seeking a one-piece alloy model.

Which bat has the better pop out of the Omaha 517 and CAT 7?

Neither the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X nor the Cat 7 would have more pop than the other since they are very similar bats, each of one piece alloy construction with balanced swing weights.

We have tried 28"/18 oz bats and my player says he needs something bigger. Will this bat be good for a 10 year old?

If your player can handle the larger 29"/19 oz size of the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X), I would certainly make a recommendation of getting that bat for him. This bat gets excellent reviews from JustBats customers.

Is this for a 9 year old? It says senior so unsure.

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X is a bat that can be used by a player up to the age of 11. Since this bat has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter it should hold up well for the younger players but will certainly break down quicker for players who are older than 11.

My son is almost 15. We are interested in this bat, but keep seeing comments about it denting. Is there an issue with that?

This 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) would display denting for a player that is almost 15 years old. You guys will want to view the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBO5173) as he is at high school age. That BBCOR bat will display better durability for a player your age.

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X features a newer ST 7U1+ alloy where the 516 features 7U1 alloy. This new alloy on the 517 provides a bigger sweet spot and a stiffer feel at contact.

What would you recommend me buying, the 2016 Easton S3, or this bat?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X and the 2016 Easton S3 are very similar bats, so it would be hard to say one is better than the other. It would ultimately come down to your personal preference.

How would you compare this to the Cat 7 -8?

What is the difference between this bat and the 2016 version? Does this bat have the 40% longer barrel like the 2016 model?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X will use an improved version of the 7U1 alloy and this would be the only difference (minus colorway) compared to the 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO516X.

Legend has it that Bud, a lover of baseball and a player himself, slipped away from work one afternoon in 1884 to watch Louisville's major league team, the Louisville Eclipse.
