Need an expert opinion. My son plays 10U travel ball for BPA and USSSA and I am in the market to get him a decent bat. He currently has been using the Miken Freak 2 3/4 (Black and green) for the past 2 yrs. Great bat with good pop but it was discontinued a long time back. In fact one of our kids has a Demarini CF8 that I would put his Freak up against any day of the week. However he is ready for a new one I think. I like the Rawlings and have seen good performance from them in the past (awesome sound). The only negative thing I have ever read or seen is some dent easily. I noticed you guys have lowered 2017 prices. So I am interested in two drop -10 senior 2 3/4 models. One is the Velo SL7V34 and the other is the 5150 SL7534. Can you tell me what is the difference and which is the better performer in your opinion? Are both subject to dent easily? Thanks for your help!!
The difference between the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 and the 2017 Rawlings 5150 is the type of aluminum used and the Velo features a composite end cap. The composite end cap will create a more balanced feel over the Rawlings 5150 and the Acoustic Alloy will feature higher performance than the 5150. All in all the Rawlings Velo is going to be a higher end bat. We have not taken many warranty replacements for denting on either.
With this bat being the 2017 model, does the one year warranty still apply if purchased in December of 2017 or into 2018?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 will feature a 12 month warranty through Rawlings from the date of purchase if a new model is being selected. Thus a bat purchased today would have a warranty from Rawlings until 12/4/18.
Is the 2-3/4 a coach pitch bat or can it be used for kid pitch?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 will be a great bat for kid pitch.
Is it USA certified?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 is not USA Baseball certified. These are the USA Baseball certified Rawlings VELO models: 2018 Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat: US8V11, 2018 Rawlings VELO -10 USA Baseball Bat: US8V10, and 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5.
Do this bat come in 2 5/8 barrel?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V10 comes with a 2 5/8 barrel.
Will this bat be legal in USSSA for 2018?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7V34) will be approved for play in USSSA in 2018.
Is this a BBCOR bat?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 is not BBCOR standard. Any BBCOR standard bats will have 2 5/8" barrel diameter and -3 weight ratio (drop). Additionally, it will include the term BBCOR in the bat name or description.
Does this bat deliver that loud ping sound when it hits a ball?
Yes with the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat being an alloy bat, it makes a loud ping sound when you hit a ball.
How does this compare to a 5150?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34, when compared to the 5150, are very similar bats. The main difference is the composite end cap used on the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34. This gives the bat a more balanced swing weight and slightly larger sweet spot when compared to the 5150.
How does the Velo compare to the Marucci Hex Alloy? Which bat bat will feel lighter in a drop 10? Lastly will the 5/8 feel any different in swing weight form the 3/4?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7V34) is very comparable to the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) in that they are both one piece aluminum designs with balanced swing weights. Where the Velo will be different is in its Silver Comp Lite End Cap and Acoustic Alloy. Due to the composite end cap it will be a little bit more balanced the the Hex and the swing weight will feel very similar in the 2 5/8" and 2 3/4" barrels.
In regards to the SL7V34 vs. the SL7V12, what are their true weight on scale for the 28/16 (SL7V12) & the 28/18 (SL7V34)? I know sometimes the drop weight is not the true weight and trying to see the difference.
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 is going to weigh about half an ounce more than the listed weight, and the SLV712 is going to weigh close to an ounce more than the listed weight.
My son is 9 yrs old playing 9u travel ball. He swings a 28/18. Should I get this bat or the Marucci Hex Alloy?
Both the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 and the Marucci Hex Alloy are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. Both of these bats are great ones to consider and it would really come down to personal preference. Would recommend reading into any and all customer reviews that are posted on site to help gain a better understanding on how others feel the two bats perform.
Our son will play 12U Majors this year. He is 5'3" and weighs 107 lbs. What size bat is recommended in a -10: 30" or 31"?
For a player of his size, I'd suggest going with the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 in the 31" 21 oz. size.
My son in about 5'2" and 85 lbs. What size should I get and is this a great bat for him? He play 13U select.
The recommended length for him is 30 inches. Depending on whether your son will be transitioning to high school baseball shortly, this bat may be a bit light in weight for him. In high school, he will be required to use a -3.
I am trying to decide between two bats for a 9U boy entering kid pitch. What is the advantage of having the Rawlings VELO Senior League vs. the Rawlings 5150 Senior League bat?
Both this 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7V34) and the 2017 Rawlings 5150 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7534) will be excellent bats for use by your player. However, this VELO will feature a few more extra technologies on it. Those extra technologies will include a composite end-cap to make the bat feel more balanced swinging overall and updated pOp 2.0 technology to allow for more flex and performance. If you are wanting to get the bat with the most technology, I would recommend this VELO.
Are there any technological differences between this bat and the 2016 model besides the color scheme and graphics? Will the 2017 model be available in a drop 8?
The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 features enhanced durability and precision technology that allows for an increase in flex and pop compared to the 2016 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SLVR10. Unfortunately Rawlings did not produce the 2017 VELO in a -8 length to weight ratio so we will not have that size available in this model.
