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:  My 10yr old loves it. Previously swung a 29/19 S3 and also a 29/20 Voodoo. Does feel a little more end loaded but after a couple round at the cages he got used to it. Has always swung all o the alloys out there and says this one feels the best. Ball comes off the barrell hot!

Cons:  None so far

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).

Can this bat be used for Little League 12U? And what length is recommended for a 12 yr old 5' 3" tall player?

The 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X38 is a USSSA approved bat, so it is not legal for play in Little League. The Intermediate (50/70), Junior League, and Senior League divisions of Little League baseball require the use of either a new USA certified bat, or a BBCOR certified bat. Based on your players age, I would suggest a 30" length.

Are there any differences in the 2017 model of this bat from the 2016 other than aesthetics?

This 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17X38) is the exact same as the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X38) with the only exception being the cosmetics featured on the 2 bats.

Is there a major difference between the new 2017 XL3 -8 and the 2016 XL3 -8? Are there any dramatic technical advantages? Also, would this XL3 be a good bat for a 5 hole hitter who is 12 years old, 5'9", and 160 lbs?

The 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X38 and the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 have the exact same features aside from the cosmetics. The construction, technology, and material have not changed. The fifth batter in a line up is typically a power hitter. A one-piece, end-loaded model like the 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X38 is a suitable bat for a power hitter. For your height and weight, we recommend a 33" bat length. However, there are not many senior league models that are offered in a 33" length so you will most likely have to use a 32".
