Pros:  For under $100, you can't find a better composite bat. The VIGOR has insane pop. It comes wrapped with Lizard Skin already so you don't have to buy one. Super balanced. My son chooses this over the $400+ bats he has in the dugout.

Cons:  The knob seems a little cheap but as long as it stays on, I'm not complaining.

Pros:  My son is pounding the ball with this bat. He's used other good bats, Easton, DeMarini, Marucci, LS, but this one has more pop than all of them. He's hitting the ball harder than he ever has.

Cons:  Vibrates a little when he doesn't quite barrel up, but not often. There's allot of barrel to work with. Great bat.

Pros:  Son needed a replacement bat when the -8 Zen got banned. This bat it a one piece composite so a slightly different feel but just as balanced. . Lots of POP. Cannot beat this price. Get one before the sell out.

Pros:  My undersized 12-yr old son smacked the ball this season including a home run. Struck out once all year, so no problem getting the bat around and putting it in the right place. He loves the bat. This is his second Combat, has had a -10 and this season the -8. We'll do a -5 for next year. By the end of the season, all but 2 kids were using this bat.

Cons:  Several vibration hits early in use. By the time the season started, it was good to go.

Pros:  This bat has amazing pop. I am hitting it harder than ever. It never has dead spots so you can hit the ball anywhere on the bat. It also has lizard skin on it so you don't have to by it. This is amazing bat.

Cons:  looks like it has a cheap barrel but as long as it stays on i'm fine.

Pros:  Bought for my 7th grader. Good idea, but I failed to realize he is already ready for -3 and thia bat was just too small for him. He's 5'7 and 150# at 12. Now, the bat seems to have great pop for -8 and is likely a good feel for a smaller power hitter, but make sure your kid is not ready for a heavier bat before purchasing.

Cons:  vibration

Pros:  I was breaking in this bat during bp and it still had amazing pop! I hit 2 homers 200 plus feet. Now that I have finally broke it in. I COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE HAPPY! The ball is flying off the bat and for the one piece composite the vibration is not bad at all! Can't wait to use this bat in 12 u tournaments!

Cons:  None so far!

Cons:  none yet. other then buy two at this price before they are gone.

Pros:  Balanced, huge sweet spot, ugly but thats a good thing! 12yr old son was swinging a -10 for a while. Hes a strong kid so we bought this -8 2016 model at a ridiculous price. Hit BP a few times and used it in a tournament. BOMB to straight center. Everyone asks to see the bat because its not the best looking bat but man does it perform!

Cons:  Nada

Pros:  The Vigor -8 is a great drop weight for 12-13 year olds. It has plenty of pop and a good diameter barrel to make contact.

Cons:  Concerned about the knob. It is plastic. If you use bat weights and knock the handle to get the weight off it will likely crack and break.

What's the difference between Vigor and Maxum?

The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX108 has a more balanced feel with a slightly longer barrel. The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108 will feature a more end heavy feel with a slightly shorter barrel.

My son is 5'7" and 116 lbs, would you recommend the -8 or -5 COMBAT Vigor? He is more of a power hitter but I'm not sure if the -5 is too heavy for him.

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 31 inch bat. If the player is in 7th grade, then the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108 would be a great option to consider. If the player is going into 8th grade/in 8th grade, then going with a -5 model would be a better option to help the player transition into high school.

What is the difference in the 2017 Vigor -8 compared to the 2016 Vigor -8?

The only difference between the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108 and the 2016 model is the colorway.

Do I need to have my boy do anything special to make sure this bat gets broke-in properly?

For the first day of use, I would recommend moving from tee work - to soft toss - to live BP. After that first day, you can go right into live BP immediately when you start using the bat. I would imagine that within 2-3 days of use, the bat should be broken-in and top performance should be displayed.

With Combat going out of business and reading other questions regarding the warranty, if there is a need for a warranty claim and the bats are no longer in stock, what will Just Bats offer as a replacement?

If a warranty replacement is needed on a Combat, such as the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108, and there are no longer any bats available to replace with, the original price paid for the Combat would be credited toward another bat as replacement.

Can this bat be used in Babe Ruth 14-15 year olds?

To my knowledge, Babe Ruth at that age requires composite bats, such as the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108, to be BBCOR certified, which it is not. To use a -8 bat, it would need to feature an alloy barrel.

Why is this 2017 bat's price so low compared to its original price?

Combat is out of business, so we went ahead and bought a lot of their remaining stock at a discount price, which allows us to sell these bats for cheaper than normal. We also are not price locked by the since they are currently out of business.

How does this compare to the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4? Barrel size, sweet spot, balance, etc.

The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108 and the COMBAT Portent G4 are very similar bats. Both of these bats are one-piece fully composite designed bats with balanced swing weights. The VIGOR will have a slightly larger/more extended barrel compared to the Portent G4 (very, very small difference).

Do you have a 30" 22 oz available? If so, at what price and how can I order it? I only see 31 and 32", drop 8's on you web site.

Unfortunately, we have sold out of the 30" version of the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VIGSL108. Since this is an older model and discontinued we are unable to get anymore of them back in stock.

What are the differences as far as balance and barrel construction between the Vigor and the Maxum? Is the Vigor more end loaded than the Maxum? My son is a tall 10u 5'2" and 90 lbs. He has a 2016 Maxum 30 -10 that has gotten to feel too light for him so he currently swings a 31 -10 Easton S3 that he loves. We are just looking for the pop that the composites can offer.

The Combat Maxum will have a larger sweet spot and be more balanced. The vigor will have a smaller sweet spot and more end loaded.

My son is 12 years old, 5'0" tall and about 110-115 lbs. Would you recommend a 31"/23 oz size?

Based upon your player's height and weight, we would make a general recommendation of getting this 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (VIGSL108) in the 30" length as long as the 22 oz weight works for him. However, if he is ready for the larger 31"/23 oz size in your opinion, it would be okay to go with that size of bat.

My boy is 5'7" and 150 lbs. This is his first year of travel ball (playing 13U). I'm looking at a drop 8. Would a 31"/23 oz be a good fit for him?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I am actually thinking that he may be able to use a bat with a 32" length. I might recommend taking a look at this in the 32"/24 oz size if you think he can handle the extra length and weight.

Is it okay to use total control balls and batting machine balls with this bat?

Since total control and the rubber machine balls will be denser than regular baseballs, I would recommend against using those types of balls with this 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (VIGSL108) if you are planning to use this Vigor as your game bat. If a bat (or any bat out there) is used consistently with those denser balls, it will break down and become defective. The only situation where I would recommend to use this bat with those balls, is if you are using this VIGOR strictly as a practice bat.

A one-piece composite, such as the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VIGSL108, isn't any less durable than a two-piece composite bat from what we've experienced.

Can you compare this to the DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) that is also a -8. Balance? Weight distribution? Materials?

The 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (VIGSL108) and the DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) are both comparable in terms of material. The main difference would be the style. The CF6 is a two-piece while the Vigor is a one-piece. The balance on them should also be fairly comparable. Typically one-piece bats are stiffer and preferred by power hitters. Two-piece bats have more flex and are usually preferred by contact hitters, but this is not always the case. Two-piece designs also have a bit more sting and vibration protection built into the design.
