Pros:  Durable Good Balance Ball will travel

Cons:  Bat Sting In live pitching my son started with the Easton Beast X Hybrid and finished with the S650. All he could say was the S650 hurt his hands. He might use it in a game, but will stick with the Beast X Hybrid for BP.

Pros:  Solid configuration that gives a good swinger plenty of opportunity for long ball drives. Much trepidation with the new USA reg, but this bat erases all of that. BUY IT

Cons:  My son refuses to use a batting glove and is a powerful but lumbering hitter, You would NEVER know it with this bat. Experiencing no vibration whatsoever.

Pros:  Enjoyed this bat while it lasted. Decent pop. A little too much vibration if not hit squarely.

Cons:  My 9 year old son used this bat for about ten weeks for our rec. league. During our first tournament, he hit a screaming liner to left field and the END CAP CAME FLYING OFF and went past the mound! There was no “hit it off the end of the bat”. After reading many reviews, this happens way too often for it not to be a manufacturing flaw. Over 30 instances on one review site with bats still under 1 year warranty. Easton offered to replace the bat with the same model, but I’m dissapointed they wouldn’t give a voucher of equal value so we could upgrade. Going back to Demarini. 10 years with my older son and never an issue that didn’t make us happy. I’m sending the bat back to Easton but they can keep the replacement.

Was this review helpful ? 10 1

Pros:  a bat rep held a demo at our local little league complex. he brought Rawlings, Demarini, Easton. Prior to the demo, I had already settled on a new Ghost X -10 for my 11 yr old who will be 12 in 2018 LL season. He hit with all of them, he preferred the Rawlings Velo -5. Most everyone in our area is all Easton. We have had 5 different Mako's and loved them all but he said the Rawlings felt the best, so that's what I got. As far as lack of pop, he was still able to drive the ball 200 ft, same as he could with the Easton 32/20 mako that he has now. This bat makes a huge "ping". Reminds you of the good old days before composites.

Cons:  None so far, bat was demo'd only.

My son is 12 and is 5 feet tall and 100 lbs. What size bat should he use?

Per your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 in a 30 inch model.

Is this Easton 32in 27oz bat legal in Dixie Youth Baseball?

Yes, this 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 is USA certified and will be allowed for Dixie Youth Baseball this year.

My grandson is 5'6" tall and 120 lbs. What is the best size? He wants a 25-26 oz. I think it's too heavy.

We would probably recommend a 31" length for his height and weight. This -5 could certainly work, or you could look for a -8 model if you feel this might be a bit heavy.

My son is 5' 10" and 142 lbs and just turned 13. Based on the charts that puts him at a 33" bat. His Babe Ruth league requires a USA or BCOR approved bat. Last season he was using a drop 10 bat. Will this be too big of a jump? Will it be too heavy? Or should I go with a 32" USA bat like the S650 with a -5 or -8 drop? Or does the S650 come in 33"?

I would recommend you get a transition bat. I think the 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 would be an excellent option in 32 inches. This will better prepare him for a BBCOR bat when he reaches the high school level.

My son is 5'3" and only weighs around 80 lbs. Would you recommend this bat or do you have another suggestion?

At his height and weight, I would probably recommend a -8 or a -10 drop bat instead of a -5, as it might be a bit heavy. An example of a -8 would be the 2018 Easton S550 -8 USA (YBB18S5508), and a -10 would be the 2018 Rawlings 5150 -10 USA (US8510).

Does it give off a lot of vibration when you hit it? Also, does it hurt really bad if you hit it wrong?

With the 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 being a one piece alloy bat, the player will feel vibration, even sting, when the ball is hit off the end or down toward the handle of the bat. However, if you hit the ball squarely, little vibration will be felt.

Can I use this on USSSA sanction league?

The 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 has a USA Baseball Stamp. However, you can swing a USA Baseball Bat in a USSSA sanction league. Just keep in mind that you might be at a slight disadvantage using a lower performing USA bat.

My son is a power hitter and likes hitting the ball out of the park. He is 115 lbs and and kids 5'5". Do you recommend this bat for him?

Based on your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18S6505) in the 31"/26 oz size as long as he can handle that weight. If your player is being required to swing a USA bat, I think this would be a solid -5 bat for consideration.

Ben Expert

Does the USA certification equate to a BPF 1.15? My son's league requires a bat to be stamped with BPF 1.15 to be legal and I do not see it on this bat. Thanks!

The 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 does not feature the BPF 1.15 marking since it is a USA approved bat for Little League and various other leagues that require that certification. Most leagues will allow USA bats since they are lower performing than USSSA BPF 1.15 bats, but your player would be at a disadvantage using a USA bat where the other bat is allowed.

Is this bat a 9 drop? Is that too heavy for a 9 year old beginner?

The 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 features a -5 length to weight ratio, and it is more than likely too heavy for a 9 year old. A better alternative would be the 2018 Easton S650 -9 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6509, as that is the -9 model.

Son is 12 1/2, weighs 107 lbs and is 5 ft 5 1/2. What size would you recommend 31 or 32?

We would recommend getting the 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 in a 31 inch model based on his current height and weight.

What is different between the Rawlings VELO and Rawlings 5150?

The main difference is the Comp-Lite end cap that improves the balance of the bat for better swing speed.

My son is turning 13yo in May. He will be playing up in Juniors this year but playing on a U12 tournament team. He's about 5' and 105lbs. Last year he used an Easton 31" -13 in league games but used a 31" -11 2 5/8 in tournaments. He tried out a -8 Ghost in the cages and seemed fine at that weight but the -5 seemed ok too. Is trying the Velo -5 unreasonable at his size? I was trying to move up in weight in anticipation of high school ball.

It is definitely going to be a big jump from a -11 but soon he will be using BBCOR bats and have to make the jump so I think that it is a good idea to get a start on that now. Based on his height and weight we would recommend a 30"/25 ounce 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5.

My son is 5'8" 160lbs 13 years old. He is in Babe ruth and must have a USA stamped bat or BBCOR.50. I was looking at this bat or was wondering if another would be a better fit. He has excellent hand/eye coordination and was wondering what length/weight would be good for him.

Based on your sons height and weight the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 in the 32"/27 ounce size would be a great option for him.

If your son was 12 yrs old, 5'5'', 160lbs, solid, strong and quick hands, like my son. Would you buy your son this Rawlings Velo -5 or the Slugger 718 -5?

Both are great bats. If your son like end loaded bats, the Slugger Select 718 is perfect for him. It is slightly end loaded with a three piece design to allow for sting reduction. If he prefers balanced, the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat (US8V5) would be the bat for him. The Velo is a hybrid as well, and will have nice sting reduction, but not as much as the Select 718.

What is the value of the composite end cap?

The composite end cap on the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 helps take weight away from the end of the bat to make it more balanced and lighter swinging.

Will this bat have more pop than the Easton Ghost or Beast X?

The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 will have a similar amount of pop compared to the Ghost and Beast X. However, both the Ghost and Beast X will be more end loaded than the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5.

I've seen the word "Hybrid" associated with some of the new USA bats like this VELO -5. Does having a composite end cap make it a Hybrid or is there composite somewhere in the barrel?

The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 is considered a "hybrid bat" due to the composite end cap. The rest of the bat, including the barrel, is made from alloy.
