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.

Does the soft outer shell make the bat less durable? Is it easy to chip or peel off?

We have not seen any durability issues regarding the 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX with regards to the Viscoelastic Polyurethane (VP) Sleeve.

Just curious why this bat is marked down so much and also I was told by the local Little League that all BBCOR bats are still legal to use in 14U and doesn't have to have the USA stamp on it. Do you know if that is correct? I'd hate to go to a game and the umpire or other team throw the bat out and not be able to use it anymore.

The 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX is marked down due to it being a closeout model from Mizuno. As for being able to use a BBCOR bat in Little League, the only division that allows BBCOR in place of a USA model would be the Senior Division.

Does the VP sleeve have any sort of temperature restrictions? It's recommended that composite bats shouldn't be used if it is too cold (like 60*), is the VP similar? Or any issues with using it in extremely hot temps (like 95*+)?

Just like composite and aluminum bats we do not recommend using the 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX with the Viscoelastic Polyurethane (VP) Sleeve in temperatures below 55 degrees.

Is the 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR a more end loaded bat like the 2016 model or is it more balanced?

The 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX features a balanced swing weight. The 2016 model was also balanced, but the first model in 2015 was considered an end loaded bat. The 2016 and 2017 are both more balanced than the original 2015 model.

Two part question. Part one, how's the pop off this bat compared to the 2017 Mizuno Covert? Two, how does the pop compare to the 2016 Mizuno MAXCOR?

The 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX will have similar performance capabilities as that of the 2017 Covert and 2016 MAXCOR. With BBCOR bats, there is not one bat that has shown greater performance capabilities than others that are on the market. With all of these bats featuring barrel wall designs to match performance capabilities of wood it comes down more to personal preference with regards to feel and material used. As well, pop cannot be accurately measured from one bat to the next so this is more opinion based. If one was basing it off of reviews, then the advantage would go towards the 2016 MAXCOR.

What's the difference between the 2017 and 2016 models?

There is not much difference in performance from the 2016 to the 2017 Mizuno MAXCOR BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MAX model. The only real changes are the cosmetics of the bat.

How is the balance of the bat? What I have right now is a Louisville Slugger 517. How does this bat match up to the 5150?

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.

I'm 5’9’’ and 145 lbs, what length is best for me?

Typically speaking, a player of your size will swing a 32" BBCOR bat. Furthermore, this 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 would be an excellent option for you considering the the pOp 2.0 technology in place to create an enormous sweet spot.

How does the 5150 compare to the Easton Beast X Speed?

Both the 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 and the Easton Beast X Speed are very comparable bats as both are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights.

Is this bat USA approved?

BBCOR options are allowed in USA Bat play only in the Intermediate and Junior League Divisions. So, the 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 would be allowed in the upper divisions.

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.

I'm 6'3" and 195 pounds and I plan on using a 33, should I switch to a 34"?

Based on your height and weight, you could get the 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 in either a 33 or 34 inch model; it all depends on your personal preference and what you feel most comfortable with.

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.

I am 6'4" and 170 lbs. Should I use a 34" or 33"?

Based upon your height and weight, the general suggestion for length of this 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB853) would be 34".

What is the difference from last year's and this year's?

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB853 and the 2017 model are really the same bats other than the cosmetics.

How is the pop on this bat and how is it overall?

Sadly, we do not have any reviews yet for this specific 2018 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB853). However, the 5150 line of bat traditionally rates really well and I think this bat will display solid performance and durability just like the older models of the bat.
