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:  durability, price and drop weight there are not a lot of drop 8s for 7sa bats..fewer in this price range. sweet spot seems a bit larger than comparable easton drop 8s.

Cons:  look, it is a $60 bat. it wont have the fancey materials to increase speed , grip, or sweet spot. dont pay $60 and expect the same performance and feel of a quatro.

Pros:  According to my 12 yr old son, the bat has a good pop. It was his favorite bat.

Cons:  Durability is poor. 3 months after purchased, my son's coach discovered the bat was crooked. We returned to RAWLINGS and after a few weeks got a new bat. However, after 2 weeks of use, the bat was bent again and we were told we could not get another replacement. Spend a little more money to get a quality bat. Don't buy this bat.

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.

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.
