Pros: Previously had the combat G3 great bat with a lot of pop my son loved it. Received my maxum bat took it out let him hit with it , definitely would recommend it lots of Pop.
Cons: None yet
Pros: Huge sweet spot Great pop Quality Drop -10 is nice for kids with more strength Confidence builder Vibration decent, you will get some when hit on wrong spot with any bat, again sweet spot helps withvibration
Cons: Price Identical, very similar to last years model
Pros: Great POP in the bat with measured swings! Very smooth swing bat.
Cons: Has some vibration when the ball is not hit on the sweat spot.
Pros: this bat is the best bat ever. best pop ever. really durable and awesome designs. And remember go King Kong Baseball, KKB!!!!!!!! And when you hit it in the bad spot no vibration.
Cons: there are no cons
Pros: My 11 year old son is 5â€™3â€ 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 hasnâ€™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: This is our 2nd combat we purchased. We had the 2016 model, and bought the 2017 model. My son LOVES this bat. Has little vibration, and the pop is awesome! Will probably never use any other bat...
Pros: This is the first combat I have ever bought. The bat is pretty good out of the wrapper but after about 250 swings, it gets HOT! I would never spend money on a Zen when I could buy a bat like this for less money with the same pop!
Pros: Excellent balance, grip and unbelievable distance. Son has gone from hitting the fence to hitting the batting cage on other side of the fence. Consistency and confidence is huge with this bat.
Cons: None yet.
Pros: awesome bat. 27/17 swings like a 27/15. huge sweet spot. balanced
Cons: very little vibration
Pros: great bat for 9u baseball!
Pros: feels light swings heavy. my son loves this bat. my son is 4'9" and weighs 70lbs. this bat is hiss new best friend.
Cons: none yet
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: really good pop
Cons: the grip
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 pop - My 9 year old son loves this bat. Hot right out of the wrapper. He can't wait to get to bat with this.
Pros: My son was swinging an Easton Mako Beast .. was rolling over all pitches.. hes a smaller frame player and need an evenly loaded bat, unlike the Mako beast.. Hes now a more confident and complete hitter..
Cons: no cons as of yet!
Pros: The handle feels good and has little to no vibration
Cons: Has a very small sweet spot. Bought the new version because we have the old version and my son loves it. This one does not come close to our old bat.
Pros: Very balanced. Loud pop. Looks great.
Cons: The handle is pretty thin and my son is complaining of some sting in his hands. Other than that, no complaints. Overall, a great bat!
Pros: got this this week. my 10 year old broke it in with 9 bombs over 190+. He said he likes the pop better than the Marucci and the zen. that his opinion.
Cons: none yet
Pros: This bat is extremely hot!
Cons: Absolutely none
Pros: Seems to have a lot of pop. Still breaking it in.
Cons: Thin handle but we put a lizard skin right over the tape it cam with for a nice thick grip.
Pros: great balance and the best pop i seen in a youth bat! buy it try it and im sure you will agree
Pros: my son has hit with a Marucci hex, DiMarini Zen, and the Louisville 917 composite bats, and rather an easton S3 allow all day over those bats. The S3 has great pop, great price, great sound off the bat, great balance, excellent bat! According to my 10 year old
Cons: like every alloy bat it dents easily
Pros: Great feel..hard hitting..balls scream off the bat. Confidence maker. You will hit home runs. Makes you buy the next size up. My son was real close to hitting the fence until he got this bat. 16 home runs between two fall seasons and a spring season. Not really sure if itâ€™s the bat or just his abilities or the confidence of having it in his hands. Plus no dents like some other reviews stated before. He hits hard and uses it even on pitching machines. No issues out of this bat at all.
Got a question about the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
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).
Does this have a BBCOR stamp?
No, the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 does not feature the BBCOR certification. It is only USSSA 1.15 BPF certified.
My son 56 inches tall and weighs 80 lbs. What size bat is recommended?
We would recommend about a 29" length of bat for his size.
Is this the best bat for the buck? Is it a great performer?
The Combat bats are currently all selling for great prices and are great performing bats. The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX110) is no exception.
what is the difference with the SL7MX110 and the SL7MX210
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, and the SL7MX210 features a 2 3/4" barrel diameter.
Can you use this bat in Little League for Juniors?
This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX110) would not be allowed in the Junior Division of Little League as it has a composite barrel and USSSA 1.15 BPF certification. If you have a composite barreled bat in the Junior Division, it has to feature BBCOR .50 certification.
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.
What does fully composite mean?
"Fully Composite" means that the entire bat is made of composite material, aka the bat, handle, endcap, and knob.
Does this bat have a warranty with Combat not being in business?
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 does come with a warranty, it will just be handled by us at JustBats.com instead of the manufacturer.
My son currently uses a 2016 26/16 Easton S3 at his Pony League. I'm now looking to upgrade to a 27/17 and was entertaining this bat but wasn't too sure if it's Pony approved.
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 is approved for Pony League play as it has a barrel diameter of 2 5/8".
What is the difference (other than the color) between the model SL7MX110 and the SL7MX210?
This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX110) will feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter on it while the SL7MX210 features a slightly larger 2 3/4" barrel diameter. That is the difference between the two bats besides the color.
What is difference from maxsl110 2015 Combat Maxum -10 senior league bat and the 2017 Combat Maxum -10 sl7mx110?
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 features greater swing weight reduction than previous models, making the bat much more balanced.
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.
Would recommend this bat or the 2016 MAKO BEAST -10 big barrel?
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.
Is this bat legal for Cal Ripken 12u?
Unfortunately, Cal Ripken tournaments require a 2 1/4" barrel diameter, whereas the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
My son is 130 lbs. Plays select ball. What drop is best for him. He usually has a 31" with -10.
If he is comfortable with what he is using I would recommend sticking with a 31"/21 ounce. If that is starting to feel a little bit light your son can move up for a -8.
My son is 5'5" and and a little over 100 lbs. He killed the 31" Maxum drop 10 but felt is was light. Considering a 32" drop 10 or a 31" drop 8 but we can't demo either one. Thoughts on which way to go?
Based on your sons height and weight I would recommend getting the 31"/23oz 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX108).
What size bat does my son need? He is 13, 5'3" and 110 pounds.
Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 31" model of the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110.
What size would you recommend for an 11 year old boy who is 5'5" and 115 lbs?
Based upon your player's height and weight, my general recommendation for a size of this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX110) would be a 31" length bat as long as you feel that you can handle the subsequent 21 oz weight.
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.
Would you recommend this bat in the 29" or 30" for a 10 year old who is 4'7" and 85 lbs?
Based on the players current height and weight, we suggest a 29" model in the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110.
How would this bat compare to the COMBAT Bubba in regard to barrel length, pop, etc.?
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.

Is it possible to just get the Mako -10 2 5/8?
Unfortunately we do not have anymore of the Easton MAKO -10 models with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. We do however have the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 in stock.
I have an 11 year old that is 5 foot 1 inches and weighs 120 lbs. Would this bat be a good fit?
Yes, it would. Based on his height and weight we would recommend a 31"/21 ounce 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310.
I have read many reviews online and I have seen repeated posts about this bat denting very easily. Can you give me any insight into this?
Just like all aluminum alloy bats, the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 is going to be susceptible to potential denting. This is much like how composite bats are going to be prone to cracking. The S3 utilizes Hyperlite Matrix Alloy which is actually used to provide increased durability for the barrel of the bat.
What's the difference between the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) and the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310B)?
This 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and differs from the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310B) which has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. besides that difference, everything else on the bats will be the same.
My son is almost 12 and weighs about 80 pounds. He has been using the Worth Prodigy 28/18 but I think that is too small now. Would you recommend a 29 or 30? He is also on the shorter side.
To determine the best size to get the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 in we use an algorithm that incorporates the player's height and weight. If you let us know the height of your player we would be more than happy to let you know the proper length to select.
Is this bat still legal to use with the new bat rules?
If your league is requiring the new USA certification, then the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 would not be legal. It is USSSA certified and not USA certified.
My 11 year old is about 90 lbs and has been using a Marucci 29 inch. Would this bat with a 30 inch 20 ounce be recommended?
A 30'' 20 oz would be a great fit in the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 for your son.
My son is 49 inches tall and weighs about 50 lbs. Is this a good bat for him? If so, should I get him the 28 inch or 29 inch bat?
This 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) would be a solid bat for your player. Based on his height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this bat in the 28" length as long as he can handle the 18 oz weight.
My son just turned 10 years old. He is 5' tall and 75 lbs. Right now, he has an Easton S2 2 1/4 barrel bat (30"/17 oz). What size do you think would be good for a 2 5/8" barrel bat?
Based upon your player's height and weight, my general length suggestion for a 2 5/8" barrel diameter bat would be the same 30" length your player is using currently. If you feel that your player is ready for the 30"/20 oz size of bat, I would recommend this 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) very highly in the 30"/20 oz size.
Looking to find correct bat size for 9 yr old. He likes the Easton S3. He is 4'8" tall and weighs approx 85-90 lbs. He plays on a travel ball team and is currently using a DeMarini Voodoo RAW 29/19. He was having trouble getting through the zone and his hitting was on and off. When his coach changed his bat and he started using an Easton 2015 S2 28/18 his hitting improved 100%. What would you suggest as bat size? Should we stay with 28/18 or 29/19 Easton S3? New season is starting so don't want a bat that is the wrong size.
Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 in a 29 inch model. Some of the issue he may have been having with the DeMarini Voodoo RAW is that this bat is end-loaded. This can cause the top hand to drop and thus cause a longer swing. If he feels more comfortable with a 28/18 then we would recommend staying with this size or asking his coach if a 29/19 balanced bat will be okay to use.
(1) Any sales for this bat? (2) Can this be used in 13 year old division for Babe Ruth? (3) Out of all bats, which bat would you choose for a 13 year old Babe Ruth player (2-5/8" barrel)?
(1) For the current time being we will not have any sales going to offer an additional amount off the listed price of this 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310). (2) This 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) will not be allowed within the 13-15 year old division of Babe Ruth because it does not feature BBCOR certification [I might recommend double-checking the rules as I could be wrong on my interpretation]. (3) If you wanted a BBCOR bat to consider, I would recommend the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS).
I know bats are generally off an ounce or 2. How does a 29 x 19 measure up in weight?
The 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 actually comes in pretty close to the listed weight, within .2 ounces over or under.
