Bat Pack Anderson Flex and COMBAT VIGOR -10 Senior League Baseball Bats: SL17FLEXXL and VG2SL110
* Click on each bat in the bat pack to get individual features for that bat
Pros: Just as much pop as the Maxum at half the cost! Picked up this bat for my son who was wanting a Maxum real bad. After using this bat in practice tonight, he was sending every ball to the fence in the air! A thing of beauty. I really like this bat more than the Maxum because it has a slightly smaller sweet spot, so you actually have to hit the ball with a little more precision, makes the kids better in the long run.
Cons: None at all! Buy this instead of the Maxum, you won't be sorry!
Pros: My grandson loves his new bat no sting good pop solid little bat
Pros: When I first touched this bat I said WOW! now if you see me hit it over the fence you will probably say wow! No sting at all. Sorta light. The best grip this is THE BEST BAT!!!!!!
Cons: None at all
Cons: The paint chipped after the secound use, but other than that I love it.
Pros: This bat has more pop than the Demarini Zen. Im very pleased. bought this as a back up bat and my 9 year old who plays travel ball likes it better than his Zen.
Pros: Drop 10 gives the kids a faster bat head speed and they are able to get around faster. They just moved up to a 13-15 yr old team and at 13, they need the speed. They are getting solid contact, no sting and great distance.
Cons: None yet. Good value for a good bat.
Pros: Lightweight, good feel
Pros: Very good pop. Ball jumps of the bat good. Nice balance for young players.
Cons: Had this bat 1 week. The first time my son use it in a game the bat broke in half. Getting a replacement, but i hope it doesn't happen again.
Pros: Bought this bat for my 10 year old. Has great pop and feel. If you miss there can be some sting but not that bad. Has similar pop to a broken in Maxum (2016 with 1.5 years worth of swings), just about 15 feet shorter distance. Highly recommend!
Cons: None yet.
Pros: Bat has good pop & overall performance. My sons confidence & ability have both gotten better since he started using this bat.
Cons: None really.
Pros: Just as much pop as my sons Maxum, for half the price. Typical Combat bat.. Ball junps off the barrel.. Very Happy ,,
Pros: Lots of pop. My son is getting way more hits now.
Pros: everything else
Cons: the sweet spot is smaller
Pros: My son is just a base hitter. He was using S3 but its not giving him a pop but for the Vigor the first time he used it in a tournament he had a homerun.. So far its giving a good pop and other players like using his bat...
Cons: none at this time we just bought the bat..
Pros: My son used a teammates Combat Vigor and loved it. We purschased one for his early birthday gift.
Cons: No cons thus far.
Pros: Good bat for the money.
Pros: Sweet spot is good, forgiving
Cons: Seems a bit dead for general hits.
Pros: Seems like a nice value, my boy enjoys it. No massive hits yet, but maybe in the Fall season here.
Pros: Really good grip and same with everything else, but the best big barrel I could ever use.
Cons: Nothing bad
Pros: Good Pop off bat, nice solid hits
Cons: Haven't had the bat long enough to see its durability. So far we've been happy with it.
Pros: this bat is easily the best i've ever used. The pop is amazing and the balance is phenomanal. Could not reccomend this bat anymore.
Cons: there is a little bit of vibration but its not too bad.
Pros: Good grip, nice pop, balanced
Pros: We purchased this bat for my son playing 10u and I believe that this bat performs just as well if not better that some of the higher end expensive composite bats! In fact, many of the kids on the team started using it and absolutely loved it! It is great that you can get this kind of performance and not break the bank!!! I would defiantly buy another Combat!!!
Cons: Everyone wants to use it! ;)
Pros: My son used the 28/18 size this yr and loved it. Now with these being discontinued I bought him the 29/19 and a 30/20. He hit 265 ft on the 29 and then 295 on the 30. He is a skinny 11yr old so this bat gives him great pop and distance for his size. I also just bought the Velo bat for cokd weather and he love that too but had more shock to the hands. These are a steal at this price compared to a slugger 918 price and we feel hits just as far.
Cons: The only CON is that Easton getting rid of this line. I would go bacj to Slugger without these before I would let my kid swing an Easton. Just our preference.
Pros: great pop - great price
Pros: my son hit today 3 for 3 good bat good pop my son loves it
Cons: great power bat for a great price
Pros: Great pop, nice grip
Cons: none at all!
Pros: try different bat, especially Axe; if your kid has a great mechanics but he is not heavy set, use this bat, does great job
Cons: just be careful, it is composite

You would see a little better performance out of a 2 3/4" barrel due to the thinner barrel walls. The 2 5/8" diameter of the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL110 will offer increased durability.
