Pros:  Light. Balanced. Awesome pop. Good sound. Big sweet spot. My 9 year old hit the 200' fence with this bat during BP. Much easier for him to get it around and pull the ball on an inside pitch. He struggled with starting too late so the light feel is helping him.

Cons:  As expected, some vibration when mishit, but a lot less than other one-piece bats. We installed a choke up ring on his bat and that helped a lot with minimizing the vibration.

Pros:  Decent pop out of the package

Cons:  small sweet spot and very tapered barrel. If you mishit it, the vibration can be pretty bad. Bought this for my 9U and the smaller barrel is tougher to hit solid every time.

Pros:  The bat looks nice and feels nice.

Cons:  For the price, the bat never had any pop. I'm not sure if I purchased a dead bat for my 9 year old son or what but it was a waste of money.

Pros:  My son plays 11U travel and when he makes contact in the sweet spot of the barrel the ball pops right off! He makes contact every time. It is expensive but you get what you pay for. Great Bat!

Cons:  Very little vibration, hope they come out with more color schemes.

Pros:  The sweet spot on this bat is excellent. The pop my 12 year old gets out of this bat is awesome. First year in select and he is facing 70mph pitching and because of the design of this bat he is smashing it.

Pros:  Bat has good pop, nice lizard skin grip already installed. I put 4 stars for Durability but haven't had long enough to really know how well it will hold up.

Cons:  They call this the Maxum but in comparison to other Maxums I've seen, the barrel isn't that big on this model. That was let down number 1, then the worst thing is how bad it will ring the player's hands if they hit it off the end of the barrel.

Pros:  Nice feel. Excellent balance. Easy to control for a 10 year old. Drop 11 is very hard to find, but was a great fit for my son. Really like the bat and if it would stay together I would highly recommend it.

Cons:  Durability is very poor. On our third bat this 2017 season due to cracking on the barrel and one bat broke in two on contact with a pitch from a coach during practice. However, Easton has been great about replacing the consistently breaking bats and allowing my son to continue through the season with the same bat. Easton has assumed Combat operations.

Pros:  Son received this bat just over a week ago. He is smaller for his age group so this bat allows him to cover the strike zone without being too heavy and has a lot of pop. Shortly after breaking in, he dominated batting practice, hit a home run in a tournament skills competition and has hit the fence in a few games turning him from a contact hitter to a power hitter.

Cons:  None at this time.

Pros:  Have only used in practice and BP currently, however my son is completely in love with this bat. His swing is more balanced and fly through the zone. He loves the installed Lizard Skin on the handle as well, he has not used with his batting gloves as of yet because he likes the grip the skin provides, have not had any of the bat sting issue as of yet.

Cons:  Need to use more against live pitching once season start

Pros:  My son is 7 he is 94lbs and taller than any kid on the team. This bat is perfectly balanced. The barrel has a very large sweet spot. We have probably hit 250+ balls now and it has really come alive now that its breaking in. My son has yet to complain about stinging his hands. I could not believe the price was under 100$ because it feels like a 400 dollar bat. Highly recommend you to have buy this for cheap.

Cons:  Curious to see how the durability holds up so we will see.

Pros:  My 8 yr old son is 4 ft 9 and weighs 105 lbs and using the 30 in 19oz. He is crushing the ball with this bat to the point that the coach of our team won't allow infielders when my son is taking BP. The coach literally sends all the kids to the outfield to chase balls. My son says this bat has better feel than his Demarini Voodoo bat with less vibration. Extremely happy with the purchase especially at the discount that's available.

Cons:  This bat will not be legal to use in our league in 2019.

Pros:  Feels lighter than 17oz, has nice pop. Been using the 28" 17oz at practice and a lot of kids really like it. Sounds like a wooden bat. My son got it for Christmas and he really loves it. I have to say the balance on this bat is perfect and makes for a quicker swing. good bat for the money.

Cons:  As we are finding out with all composit bats one year is about all u get out of them maby two seasons if you dont play to many games.

Pros:  Lighter bat for a skinnier 11u player. A lot of his teammates also use it now, because of the lighter feel to the bat. That one ounce does make a difference. A great price for this bat, would buy it again if I had to do it over.

Cons:  Had to get used of the handle. Vibrated his hands the first few times, but doesn't even notice now. Been having the bat about a month now, can't comment on durability yet.

Pros:  Just ordered this bat for my son. The price was the reason. He had the Louisville Slugger Catylist the last two years. He told me its equal to but not better than the Slugger.

Cons:  My son told me it rattles or vibrates even if you hit it on the sweet spot. Not sure about the durability we just purchased the bat. He likes the overall feel but he has only used it in the cage and not in games yet.

Pros:  My son likes the look and general feel of the bat. It's given him some better pop and thus far it's been durable. Have owned for one month playing travel ball.

Cons:  Son is having a hard time with the vibration and stingers coming off this bat if it's not hit just perfect every time. No other bat we've used he's had such a hard time. Have doubled up the tape to try to assist with the sting if not hit perfect.

My son just made the transition from little league to travel ball. He was swinging 28"/18 oz bat for coach pitch. I see him struggling at the plate catching up to the balls at times and was wondering if I should get this bat in a 28"/16 oz or 27"/15 oz? Would an inch and two ounces be too much of a difference or should I keep the same bat length? My son is 6 1/2 and weighs about 50 pounds.

I would probably stay with a 28"/18 oz model. The 2 oz difference should help a fair bit, however only you would have the best guess since we have never seen him actually swing. A 27"/15 oz seems rather small for a player his age however, and would not be recommended unless he was about 4'2" or shorter.

Will this bat need to be broken in?

With composite bats, like this 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12), we always recommend a break-in period. On the first day of use, I would suggest taking roughly 100-150 swings off a tee, rotating the barrel a 1/4" every 15-20 swings. On the second day of use, I would recommend hitting soft tosses again, rotating the barrel every few swings. After doing this, the composite bat should be broken in!

I'm looking for a new bat. My son plays in a travel league that does not need the BBCOR or USA stamp. He can use a 2 3/4 USSSA bat. I'm trying to decide between this and the 2017 Easton Mako Beast Senior League bat. Is there much difference in the bats? I want a 29 inch bat.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 would be a one piece composite bat with a -12 length to weight ratio, so it will be a lighter bat overall than the 2017 Easton Mako Beast Senior League bat. The Mako Beast will also be a two piece composite bat, so less vibration will be felt on that bat than on the Ghost X Hyperlite.

Not many reviews on this bat. How would you compare the performance if this model to the Easton Beast model, CF Zen or even a LS Solo 618?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is going to be very similar in performance to the three bats that you have listed. It will be a pretty different feel in comparison to the Easton Beast and the CF Zen due to it being a one piece design and those bats featuring a two piece design. The one piece design on the Louisville Slugger Solo and the Easton Ghost X Hyperlight will be a stiffer feel. All of the bats mentioned will be similar in performance.

My son is 9 and weighs 60 pounds. His USA bat is longer but he chokes up between 2-3 inches. This is his first year of travel and looking to get a fast bat to build on confidence, so I got a 27-15oz. His other bat that he chokes up on is 29-18oz. Small guy, so will this bat work for this year?

I would consider the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 in a 28/16 or 29/17. I think going from a 29/18 to a 27/15 is too big of a jump. I would recommend only going down an inch and an ounce and that will be of enough benefit to increase his bat speed.

Does the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) have the USA approval/meet the new 2018 bat standards so that my son can use it for select?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) meets the USSSA certification and does not meet the USA standard. In order to meet the USA standard, your bat will need a diameter of 2 1/4" or 2 5/8" and have the USA stamp. I would suggest taking a look at the 2018 Easton Beast X Hyperlite -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat (YSB18BXHL). This bat meets the USA standard and has a 2 1/4" barrel.

What are the differences between the 2018 and the 2017 version?

This 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) will be the same as the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST HYPERLITE -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17MK12B) in regard to general design. Both bats have a -12 length-to-weight ratio; 2 3/4" barrel diameter; and one-piece, all-composite design. However, this Ghost X Hyperlite will differ as it features new EXACT Carbon Composite Material that should optimize barrel performance, enlarge the sweet spot and reduce vibration on the 2018 Ghost X.

I just ordered a Ghost X 30/20 and then I saw this. I don't know what bat to use. I know that bat speed is what you want. I used the chart to decide the length of bat but how should I decide the weight? He swings a 29/19 now. Is there a such thing as too light of a bat?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is best suited for players 10 and younger. One that is 11 years of age could benefit from this bat if they are on the smaller side. As for as how to decide on the weight, this is going to come down to age and what bat they are currently using and how well they are handling the weight of this bat. Typically, for players 11-12 years of age a -10 bat is best, -8 for a 7th grader and -5 for an 8th grader. One always should swing the heaviest bat possible that will not negatively impact bat speed or swing plane. Going lighter can help improve bat speed but can have a negative effect in terms of durability and distance in stronger players; too light and there is no weight to throw into the baseball.

Why is this bat not a 2-5/8? It's the exact same as the JBB! Will they even make a 2-5/8?

The new USSSA bats that are being made, like the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12, will feature a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. Now that travel ball leagues, USSSA, and Little League, Dixie, Pony, etc. have gone to two different certifications with regards to big barrel bats the trend with USSSA is 2 3/4" barrel diameter.

How would you compare the 27' Combat Maxum versus the Easton S2? Which is more balanced to give an easier swing? Which has better pop? Are these both 2 3/4' and legal for travel ball in 2018? For rec ball we are using the Rawlings 5150 USA bat, but I want to get a big barrel for travel ball now.

The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 will be a more balanced feel than the S2, will be very close in performance of the bats and will both be legal for travel ball in 2018.

I bought this bat for my 9 year old son and it seems to be very dead and it vibrates! It doesn"t make any sound when hits it. What"s up with that?

The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 is a fully composite bat. With composite bats, a break-in period is needed to loosen up the composite fibers and see the bat's true performance. To break-in the bat, we suggest either soft toss or hitting of a tee for about 200 swings, rotating the bat a 1/4 turn every 10 swings. As a one piece bat, the player could experience some vibration with mishits.

My son it 7 years old and batting with a 27" 19oz bat. He is 50" and about 53 lbs. His current bat has worked fine but I have always thought it was a bit too heavy. Now his is going into all-stars and will be facing faster pitchers. Is this a good bat for him or is there a better version out there? Also, it has to be USA bat certified. Thanks for your insight!

To start, the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 is a USSSA approved bat, but will not be allowed for any USA sanctioned baseball. Unfortunately, Combat has not made a USA model bat. If you were looking for a lighter USA model, I would recommend checking out some of our (-10) USA options.

My son is 8 going on 9 and is around 4'6" and 76 pounds. He has been swinging a 27" drop 12 Easton for a couple years until it broke. I am not sure if he should move up to a larger bat. I was thinking about the 27/16 or the 28/17 Combat Maxum and really not sure which way to go. Any help would be great.

Based on your player's height and weight, as well as his age, I would suggest the 28/17 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 given the two options listed.

What is the difference between this bat and to 2018 model?

There will not be much different between the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 and the 2018 model minus the cosmetic design of the bat.

What is true weight on this bat and how does it compare to the 2018 Cat 7?

Most bats will weight .5-1 oz heavier than the listed weight due to things like the paint and adhesive glue not being factored into the listed weight. The Marucci Cat 7 is a one-piece, all alloy model while this Combat is a one-piece, composite design. Both bats should perform very well.

Do you have a 31" 20 oz. available?

Unfortunately, we have sold out of the 31" 20 oz. 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211. Since the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 is a closeout model, we will not be re-stocking any of the sizes.

My son is 9 years old and a little small for his age. What would be a good bat for him in his 1st year of 9U travel ball?

In my opinion, I think one-piece bats are more beneficial to younger players because of the durability they provide. With that being said I think the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 in a 29 inch length would be a great option for your player.

How does this 17' Combat Maxum compare to the 16' Marucci Hex Alloy in performance? Distance, pop and sweet spot size?

The major difference between these two bats will be that the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 is a one-piece composite bat compared to the one-piece alloy construction of the Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat. Furthermore, the 2017 Combat Maxum will provide a lower swing weight and a 20-40% increase in hitting surface. The pop and distance provided from each of these bats will be very similar as they are both held to the same USSSA regulations.

Granted this is a '17 bat, is there still a warranty? I see a lot of reviews mentioning cracking etc.

If I purchased this bat, would it have the USA Stamp for approved use in any little league organization?

This bat does not carry the USA certification stamp. It has the USSSA stamp. Only newer 2018 models will have the USA stamp on them. However, Combat does not have any USA certified bats.

I just bought the -11, thinking it was a -10. It is for my 9 year old twins. They have been using a 30"/20 oz (-10). Will they be alright?

If you purchased this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX211) in the 30"/19 oz size or the 31"/20 oz size, I think your players should be fine to use either of those sizes of bats. However, once they start to get older, you'll want to consider using progressively heavier bats so that they grow stronger with age in their swings.

Which bat is best for an 11 year old who's playing travel ball?

A very popular and highly rated bat for an 11 year old playing travel ball would be the 2016 COMBAT VIGOR -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: VIGSL110 in a 30" size.

I read Combat is out of business partly due to their 500 day warranty and return issues. I heard this bat is very good but can periodically have cracking issues. Will you honor the 12 month warranty with this bat? Or what is your policy with this bat?

Yes, we will honor the warranty on all Combat bats purchased from us.

I want to purchase this bat but have one question. How are any warranty issues being handled for Combat bats now & in the future?

Combat bats purchased from JustBats.com, such as the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211, will feature a 12 month warranty through JustBats.com instead of the manufacturer.

Do the SL7MX210 and SL7MX211 have the same performance characteristics when the weights are equal (i.e. - a 31"/20 oz of the SL7MX211 and a 30"/20 oz of the SL7MS210)?

Yes, this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX211) and the SL7MS210 will have the same potential for performance when you are comparing models of similar length and weight (the only slight advantage is that this SL7MX211 features a larger 2 3/4" barrel diameter).

Ben Expert

Do you need to break this bat in?

Yes, we would recommend around 100-150 swings off the tee or soft toss. Make sure you rotate the barrel about a quarter of an inch every 15-20 swings to fully break-in the composite fibers throughout the bat.

Do you expect the 2017 MAXUM (-11) to have the same "pop" as the 2016 MAXUM (-12)?

This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX211) is made with the same composite material and should be able to display extremely similar performance to the 2017 MAXUM (-12) bat.

Why is the -10 cost so much more than the -11?

Due to the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX211 not being the more common size used by players it will come with a lower price tag as COMBAT sells them at a lower cost.

My son is 9 years old and weighs 84 lbs. His coach says to use a heavier bat for more power. (1) What is the difference between a -11 and -10? (2) Should he get a BBCOR?

(1) The difference between a bat that is listed as a -11 like this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX211) and a bat that is listed as a -10 is going to be the length-to-weight ratio. The length-to-weight ratio is the difference between the number of the length in inches and the number of the weight in ounces. This COMBAT MAXUM has a difference of 11 between the number of the length in inches and the number of the weight in ounces. A bat that is listed as a -10 will have a difference of 10 between the number of the length in inches and the number of the weight in ounces. Therefore, if you were to compare a -11 bat and a -10 bat that both had the same length, the -11 model would be 1 ounce lighter. (2) I would not recommend getting a BBCOR for a 9 year old player. BBCOR bats are meant for use by high school and college aged players. Those bats will be listed as -3 models. They will be much heavier than a -11 model like this COMBAT MAXUM.

What is the difference in this bat vs the new DeMarini CF Zen?

This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX211) will differ from the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Balanced Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCBZ) as this MAXUM is a one-piece bat while the CF Zen is the two-piece bat. You'll notice as well that this MAXUM is a -11 model while the CF Zen is a -10 model. Lastly, I think that the longer barrel length on this MAXUM will lead to a slightly larger sweet spot on it as well. However, in regard to similarities, both bats will be pretty balanced in their swing weights and both bats are all composite in their build.

I've read some reviews and it says this bat has a lot of pop, but is not durable. I was wondering if this bat is going to be durable with a lot of pop?

This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -11 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX211) is a new 2017 model (and there wasn't a 2 5/8" model with a -11 length-to-weight ratio for 2016) so we haven't been able to see a whole lot in regard to durability. However, I would imagine that the performance will be there on this bat as the 2016 MAXUMs were a great success in regard to performance.
