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.

Pros:  Just took this to the cages for the first time today...so impressed! My son is a big 10 year old. Last year he used a -10 5150 and we decided to make the jump to the -5. I thought it would take some adjustment, but he was scorching the ball with this bat! He said the extra weight made it feel even better to him. Great job Rawlings with this new USA Bat standard 5150!!!

Cons:  Definitely more endloaded, may not be a con for some. Just be aware, this bat is not extremely balanced. If looking for the best balanced bat, check out the Velo from Rawlings.

Pros:  great bat. Straight forward alloy stick, fantastic value. Barrell is a little short, but fine for a good hitter. Some sting on occasion, which is to be expected in single piece. Smooth swing, slighty end loaded.

Cons:  None really. Can't beat the price

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.

Kyle J. Expert

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.

Is this bat approved for 13U teams playing USSSA tournaments?

The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 is approved for USSSA tournaments at the 13U level.

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.

I know this bat is -5 drop bat but what is the true weight? I know some bat comes a little bit heavier or lighter sometimes.

The 31 inch 2018 Rawlings 5150 -5 USA Baseball Bat: US855 weighs 27 ounces.

This is the 2018 2 5/8 barrel in a -5, is this correct? My son is 5'4" and 130 lbs has been swinging a drop 10 32" Easton last year. In 13u now and have seen good pop on this bat. Appears to have a large sweet spot. Is it possible to see a cross section of the barrel area?

The 2018 Rawlings 5150 -5 USA Baseball Bat: US855 is the new model that will be legal for Little League, Dixie, Pony, Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth, Dizzy Dean and AABC. This bat, based on the fact that it is a drop 5 model, would be best suited for someone in middle school (7th-8th grade). As far as being able to see a cross section of the barrel, we are not aware of this being possible.

Does this bat have a thicker barrel wall than a -10 bat?

I wouldn't necessarily say that this 2018 Rawlings 5150 -5 USA Baseball Bat (US855) has thicker barrel walls than a -10 model of bat. However, I would say that -5 bats tend to have displayed a little better durability than -10 bats, especially when the sizes in consideration are being used by an older player (12-13 year old players).
