Pros:  My son a small 10 yrd. Sub .200 hitter. needs all the advantages he can get. Has only managed 1 fly ball to center all season long. with this 2017 Maxum his fist hit was a hard ground ball for a base hit. His second hit was a line drive into the gap that carried to what would have been tge fence had we played in a 10u field. His Double/Triple ended up as in inside the park Homerun. Im one proud parent. Every dollar spent worth seeing his team pick him up and carry him into the dugout. Cant wait until the bat gets "broken in". #justbuythebat

Cons:  The stickers are showing wear, but it is a bat so thats expected. He did get a stinger but because he hit it off the end of the bat so thats expected.

Pros:  My boy plays 10U travel ball, got him this bat and the first tournament we played in he got two doubles and 3 RBIs. He hits line drives and the first one he hit rolled all the way to the fence, and the other hits were so hot the other team had trouble handling them. His confidence is growing. This bat only has maybe 40 hits so far and it has great pop.

Cons:  none so far

Pros:  My son is just 10 years old and this could be the year he hits his first over the fence home run. The bat has a huge sweet spot and because it is so light weight, my son is now swinging a 31" length instead of 30" and his bat speed has increased.

Cons:  So far nothing negative to report but like all composite bats, I worry a little about him cracking it based on other reviews that I've read.

Pros:  Awesome Pop, Perfect swing balance, Comfortable grip, This bat is by FAR the best bat i have ever purchased in its price range. I got my son a 29/17 MY son is 6yo, 4'1" tall, 55lbs. His 6U tball team decided to make the jump and play Coach Pitch instead this year so i took the gamble on a bat 2" longer than his 27" tball bat. In 3 games he is 7/10 with 5 balls reaching the 170ft fence and Zero strike outs. The added length helps with pitches away and the exrta 2oz doesnt seem to bother him one bit.

Cons:  If you hit the ball off the end cap or handle it stings a bit (SO DO ALL BATS). No other complaints of note.

Pros:  In the cage with my son I generally don't swing with his bat when demonstrating, i just use my fungo bat to demonstrate a point. My 8U player was really struggling to hit the ball out of the infield with his Easton Mako bat, even though he has a pretty good swing. Never strikes out, bats the 3-hole. I decided to take a few (light) swings with the Mako. It was obvious the bat was dead, and he's only had it for half a season. I've read about Combat before, and the fact that EASTON (largest bat mfr in the world) decided to buy out Combat had me intrigued. EASTON is no dummy, there is a technological reason they bought Combat, and I'm sure we'll see the Combat technology in EASTON bats before too long. This bat has great balance, MUCH larger sweet spot (probably a baseball width larger), and much less sting than the MAKO. Son hit a home run over center fielders head his first at bat with the MAXUM. I plan to buy one in 29" and 30" just so he can use the same bat for a while.

Cons:  None yet. Will try to re-post at the end of the season to update on durability. I gave durability 4-stars, but we haven't had it long enough to rate durability. I sure hope it stays durable, because out of the box this a GREAT bat. I hope Easton doesn't kill the technology, and will implement the one piece composite design into EASTON bats. Otherwise, I will stock up on MAXUM bats from justbats.

Pros:  Was good while it lasted.

Cons:  The bat just cracked last night. Unfortunately, we had already used the warranty to replace it once the FIRST time it cracked. Both bats lasted only months (less than a year of use) before they formed big cracks. Do not buy unless you are okay buying a bat that doesn't last long.

Pros:  My son is 11. Was looking for a bat that he could gain greater bat speed and solid pop. We found it! This is one of the very few -12 bats on the market. He is able to get around on the fastest pitching now and gets great contact.

Cons:  Like any bat, there can be some sting when hitting outside of the sweet spot. I also see concerns about cracking this bat. If this happened, my son would be on top of the world and I'm confident these guys would take care of me!

Pros:  My almost 8 year old weighs 55lbs plays travel ball and is a contact hitter with an avg. of approx. .600. Have been working on swing speed with weighted bats of 6oz over his game bat weight when using a tee. Made the jump from a 13oz Easton to a 16oz Combat Maxum once I felt like his swing speed and strength could handle the 20%+ increase in weight when compared to his physical size. Received the bat within 3 days of ordering and right out of the box my son was hitting the ball much harder and farther then ever! The ball was consistently coming off the bat much quicker and going 10-15ft further in the air. Son and Dad are very pleased...Can't wait to see how much better this bat gets with more time and hits on it. BTW, my son chose this bat after I explained the differences in the bats we researched AND I made him purchase half of it...always gotta have skin in the game.

Cons:  None so far...

Pros:  My 8 yo son has always been a contact hitter but now crushes it - last two games with this bat he went 7 of 8 with 4 doubles and a triple. The one hit he didn't get was a hard line that SS dove to make a miraculous play. My son's confidence is through the roof as he's racking up RBIs.

Cons:  None other than it will no longer be legal in his league next year - but totally worth the rest of this and fall season he'll get out of it this year.

Pros:  Bought this bat for my 13 year-old's trip to the Cooperstown Dreams Park tourney. Used in one batting practice and one scrimmage before the trip and seemed to have lots of pop. Used it in the first three games and then it cracked on a base hit in the third game. Bummer, and had to borrow another bat for the next four games. I will hand it to JustBats.com though, I emailed on my way back from the tourney, and they took care of the issue very promptly.

Cons:  I think another reviewer said they wouldn't recommend this bat for bigger kids, and I guess I'd echo that. It's nice and light but for my 13 year old it just wasn't strong enough to be durable.

Pros:  The Maxum is an incredibly balanced bat! My son prefers it to his Demarini Vexxum which is also very balanced. No kidding about the "hittable" surface area compared to other bats. Three of his teammates refuse to use their own bats and always use his Combat because of the balanced feel.

Cons:  My 13 yo son tried this bat in a game and his first hit was an incredible hit to left field. The pop was astounding right out of the wrapper. My 12 yo who has a better swing mechanics gets on base almost every time from grounders and line drives as he is able to swing the bat quickly because of its balance. However, after a couple games, in the air hits rarely go deep into the outfield even with solid contact and follow through. Same is true for the other three hitters so I am not impressed with how quickly the Maxum lost its pop.

Pros:  This bat was very close to the specified weight and well balanced. 75% off MSRP (too good to be true?)

Cons:  These latest bats from combat are NOT what they use to be. First off, the little sticker now says "Designed in Canada, made in China" It used to say "Made in Canada" my boy took just a few swings with it and we both knew it was a dud. The barrel is hard as a rock, it rings the hands, the sound is completely different and there's no pop what-so-ever. LOVED the old Maxums before PSG gutted it, tried to like this one, but I'm afraid they're officially done. You've been warned!

Pros:  So far, so good! Our 10u travel team loves our new Combat Maxum in the 29" drop 12oz version. The Maxum is well balanced, allowing for maximum swing speed. The barrel is very long, comparable to most other 30" bats in this price market. So far, I feel that the Mako Beast Hyperlite has more "pop" of the two bats in terms of ball distance, but the Maxum has it's own strengths. The long barrel has allowed some of our kids that often miss the sweet spot of the bat to experience solid hits that wouldn't be there with other bats. The stock Lizard Grip is nice! It's sticky, comfortable, and long.

Cons:  The one-piece design allows for more vibration, but that's the case with any one-piece composite bat. Solution: hit the sweet spot!

Pros:  I have all Combat bats and like the response my kids have to the bat. From the Tee Ball Bats to the Maxum we have a Combat bat from 26" to 30". There aren't too many bats with good pop at a drop 12 or 11. My sons aren't the biggest kids but they make up the difference with bat speed. The length to weight ratio makes it easy for my boys to make contact and hit the ball hard. They like the feel... Now all the kids on my team use Combat.

Cons:  None yet. Would like to see a more end loaded bat at this length to weight ratio.

Pros:  Great bat if you hit it directly in the sweet spot every time. Nice and light for kids.

Cons:  Extremely small sweet spot. Right out of the wrapper this bat had very little pop and made a horrible sound unless you hit the ball directly in the sweet spot. Anything off the end of the bat or handle makes a vibrating sound and the ball barely comes off of the bat. Both my son and his teammates gave up on this bat rather quickly. We have gotten to the point where we have put the bat aside and will no longer use it. Highly suggest finding a different bat to buy.

Pros:  Being a coach i always look for the best bats for my spn/ players. This bat had made a difference in many kids whether they are experienced or developing. the bat has great pop and lots of kids on the all star and travel team love using it. I would rate this bat one of the best 2-5/8 barrel on the market. Its hard finding a 2-5/8 big barrel woth good drop ratio so i would highly recommend this bat for any league that is USA certified

Cons:  None that comes to mind as long as the bat is kept maintained and not treated like a trash it'll live up to the hype

Pros:  Great balance and contact. Son rarely struck out using this bat. The light weight helped him get around quick and sent it to the outfield on a shot. Son is 11, more of a contact hitter and he loved this bat.

Cons:  After about a year it starting cracking just below the barrel. A lot of swings in those 12 months. Because I bought the bat here I was given a UPS return label and a refund.

Pros:  Good pop. Ball comes off bat fast. My 7 year old son has hit two inside the park homeruns. I don't mean 7 year olds fumbling the ball homeruns I mean hitting the ball over heads and rolling to the 223' part of the field. He has hit a few doubles and numerous singles. He enjoys hitting with this bat. Great bat to gain confidence. After his second homerun he stated, "Dad I'm so proud of myself."

Cons:  Seemed to me the bat needed to be broken in. After about 50-100 hits through practice this bat started to perform.

Pros:  Great purchase for the first year of kid pitch. My son is 7 and has been hitting well with this bat. He has a hard hit double to the fence in each game this spring. I bought the 27/17 for a seven year old and he feels confident at the plate. The bat has a unique sound to it and i really like it! The entire team is using this bat now. For the price you can't beat it so buy the bat and let your kid make contact and become a better hitter before dropping serious money on a bat.

Cons:  For 50 bucks...none!

Pros:  Solid feel with good pop right out of the wrapper. Feels lighter than its true weight which is good for us. My son went 3-3 in his first fame with this bat with solid line drives after struggling to make solid contact with his other bats all season. Its given him the confidence we have been lacking so far!!

Cons:  None to mention at this point.

Pros:  Looks and swings fine, it's just dead. My 8U all star team used this as the team bat to hit heavy balls in warm ups so we didn't mess up anyone's bat that actually has pop. It's not awful and actually hits pretty well for my 4 year old, but the older kids with power...it just doesn't have any.

Cons:  Just has no pop. It sounds like hitting with a cardboard box and is just dead.

Pros:  cheap price, entry bat for a young player

Cons:  I have gone through 2 and both lost their pop and sounded hollow after a few hits. You can hear the change. Justbats makes you work with Demarini and they will only replace the bat once. Save you money and buy something else and perhaps from somewhere close to where you live so you can get a better warranty. I would not recommend this purchase.

My boy is 4’5” & 65 lbs and I'm torn between this and the MAKO Hyperlite. He has a 29/19 Easton S2, hits it pretty solid but I feel it's still a bit heavy. What's the major difference in these two besides barrel diameter?

If your player is already swinging a -10 baseball bat then I would recommend the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX110 or going to a heavier bat like the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX108.

My son loves his 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 28" bat. Unfortunately he cannot use this bat for Little League in 2018. We weight the bat and it seems more like 17oz rather than 16oz. I'm thinking of buying a 28" -10 USA baseball Bat (2-5/8") similar to this one, which model will you recommend? Thank you!

Based off the information you've provided, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL which also features a one-piece composite design. If you wanted a -10 then I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10.

My son is 8.5 yrs old. Roughly about 55 lbs. His swing lags with a 27"/17 oz bat. I wanted a -12 to help him maintain his mechanics. A 26"/16 oz bat seems a bit short. What size would you recommend?

If the 27"/17 oz bat causes his swing to lag, but the 27" length is fine, then I think going with this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX112) in the 27"/15 oz size would be a good remedy. You would be able to maintain his current length, but get something a little bit lighter that he can swing quicker.

My son is 5 and a half years old and is just over 4 feet tall and about 55 lbs. He has not played organized baseball before, but he will be playing next summer as he become obsessed with the game over this past summer. Just wondering if this Combat bat in 28/16 would be a good option for him? I have been thinking that a 12 drop bat would be better for him than a 10, but any other recommendations you have would be greatly appreciated. We live outside Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada and play under Baseball Ontario rules which allow him to use a 2 3/4" barrel and there is no drop weight limit at his current age group.

Based on what you have told us I would recommend the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX112 for your son in a 27"/15 ounce size.

Our son is 10 years old and about to turn 11 years old (weighs 80 lbs and is 54" tall). Debating between the Louisville Slugger Catalyst (-12 & 2 5/8") or the Combat MAXUM (-12 & 2 5/8"). Are these similar?

Based on your player's height and weight, I would make a general length suggestion of 30" in length. This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX112) and the 2017 or 2018 Catalysts will both be one-piece, all-composite bats. However, this MAXUM will have a 2 5/8" barrel while both of the available 2017 and 2018 Catalyst bats will be 2 3/4" barrel diameter. If you need a 2 5/8" barrel diameter bat, I would suggest getting this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX112) in the 30"/18 oz size.

What are your thoughts in comparing this Combat Maxum and the Louisville 917 big barrel? Are they similarly balanced and have the same size sweet spot? I understand the 917 is a -10.

The Combat MAXUM should have a slightly bigger barrel length than the Louisville Prime 917. Both bats will be very well balanced and have large sweet spots The Prime 917 should provide better vibration dampening due to its unique three-piece design.

My son is 8 yrs old and he swings a 29"/19 oz size of bat. However, the bat is a heavy on the end. He's 4'10" and 125 lbs (any size smaller we tried wasn't comfortable). My question is if the 29"/17 oz size would be a better fit for his size and his strength?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting a bat in the 30" length. However, if the 29" length is the best length fitting for your player, then I think the 29"/17 oz size of this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX112) will function the best for your player. It will definitely feel lighter than the current 29"/19 oz size of bat being used.

Please make sure you rotate the barrel about a quarter of an inch every 15-20 swings. This will help break-in the composite fibers throughout the barrel.

However, if you wanted to move to the 30"/18 oz size of this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX112), you should be fine as the bat will be extremely light.

Whether to get the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX112 in a 28 inch model will really depend on how well he has been handling his current bat at 27 inches and 15 ounces.

I see people have said things about the bat cracking. Is this typical or a pattern with COMBAT bats?

With this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX112), it will have a -12 length-to-weight ratio (it is a very light bat). Typically, if being used by the correct aged player, it should be able to hold up durability-wise (I cannot guarantee durability, but most times the individual should be okay). For this bat, I would only recommend using it for players that are age 11 and below.

I am looking at a 31" 2 5/8" or 2 3/4" barrel. Is the barrel length on the -12 the same as the barrel length on the -10 or the -11 models? Or did they reduce the barrel length to achieve the lighter weights?

The barrel lengths on these bats, assuming they are all the same length, will not change. The different weights that the various 2017 COMBAT MAXUMs will be featured in will be the main difference. Also, it is common to find that that barrel walls of the 2 3/4" bats to be slightly thinner giving more pop potential but also leading to durability issues potentially quicker than that of a 2 5/8".

However, the SL7MX211 will have a 2 3/4" barrel diameter while this SL7MX112 has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.

However, this 2017 version should only require a limited break-in (if any) before showing game-ready performance. I would imagine that a few rounds of BP or a day of hitting off the tee for a day should be sufficient to get it ready for top performance.

How does this compare to the newer Voodoo balanced? 26"/16 oz, 2 5/8" barrel. What is a good recommendation for that size?

We have 2 options currently available for a 26"/16 oz bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. They are the 2016 Easton S3 Junior Big Barrel (JBB16S310) and the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Junior Big Barrel (DXVBX). Both are excellent options.

My son is 5 years old, he's about to begin fall ball. I'm looking to get a new bat for this season. I'm just not sure which bat to get. He stands in at 3ft 5in. He weighs 40lbs.

For the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX I would recommend a 26 inch model.

What size bat do you recommend for a 6 yr old that weights about 50 lbs?

For a player that is 6 and around 50 lbs we would recommend getting the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX in a 26 or 27 inch length (depending on player's height). With his age in consideration, it might be wise to consider a -12 bat.

We've only used this bat once, and I expected to hear a "ping" noise on contact, but what we got was more of a crack or pop. I thought this was unusual, but has anyone else experienced this?

This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) is made with a one-piece, all-alloy design to it which typically produces a "ping" noise at contact. I haven't heard many other complaints in regard to the sound being produced by the bat at contact with a ball. However, if the bat is performing well, I wouldn't let the sound being produced by the bat, keep you from using the bat in practice or games.

(1) What's the difference between the DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) and the DeMarini Vexxum NVS Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXY)? (2) Do 2 1/4" bats have longer sweet spots? (3) Do you recommend using a big barrel bat?

(1) This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) will be a one-piece, all-alloy bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and -10 length-to-weight ratio. The DeMarini Vexxum NVS Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXY) is a hybrid bat (alloy barrel and composite handle) with a 2 3/4" barrel and -10.5" length-to-weight ratio. Overall, I think the bats will feel pretty similar in their weighting. Biggest difference in feel will be at contact. This Voodoo will be stiff at contact while the Vexxum will feature flex (due to its 2-piece design). (2) There may be some youth bats (2 1/4" diameter) that have a longer barrel length than some big barrel bats (2 5/8" or 2 3/4" diameter). The general thinking is that the longer the barrel length; the bigger the sweet spot. However, I would not say that as a general rule, the barrel lengths and sweet spots on the youth barrels will be longer than what is on big barrel bats. (3) I always recommend using a big barrel bat if it is allowed because the big barrel bats typically cover up more area of the strike than the youth barrel bats.

My son is almost 6 and plays coach pitch and T-ball (he has a great skill set and does well). He currently uses a 26" (-10) Easton S3. I'm thinking he may get more bat speed with a shorter bat. (1) Should I get a shorter bat? (2) How does this bat compare with the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) - 2 5/8"?

(1) If he did just fine with a 26"/16 oz bat this past year, then I don't think getting him a smaller bat would be a necessary move. I would suggest to probably just stay at that same size. (2) This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) and the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) will both feature an all-alloy build and a 2 5/8" barrel. Overall, I think the bats will have a pretty similar potential for performance.

Can you use this bat in Babe Ruth coach pitch? The 2 5/8", 27" 17 oz -10.

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to use a big barrel in Babe Ruth until the 13-15 year old division. The 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX would not be legal for coach pitch in Babe Ruth.

Is this approved for Little League, 7-U baseball?

This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) will not be legal for use in the Minor Division of Little league Baseball (7-U).

Here is a Voodoo model that would be legal for use in the Minor Division: 2016 DeMarini Voodoo RAW Youth Baseball Bat (DXVDL).

Is this bat approved for Little League or do you have any 25 in bats that are approved for Little League that are not tee ball bats?

No, the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat DXVDX is not approved for Little League due to the barrel diameter being 2 5/8". Unfortunately we do not have any 2 1/4" barrel bats in a 25" that are not designed for tee ball.

Is this bat approved for Pony Baseball? I noticed it does not say approved for Pony.

The 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX is approved for Pony Baseball. Since this bat has a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, is not a drop 3 and will not be featured in a length longer than 35 inches then it will meet the necessary specs for Pony approved play.

My oldest son had a DeMarini Voodoo, and I loved it. Will this bat as good as the CAT 6?

This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) will compare most similarly to the Junior Big Barrel model of the Cat 6. Both bats will be single-piece, all-alloy bats with balanced swing weights. Overall, it will be hard to compare the bats in regard to performance because the Cat 6 has gotten really impressive reviews, but this Voodoo has yet to receive any feedback on our website.

I am looking for a 26 inch 16 ounce 2 5/8 inch barrel bat for my son. His coach recommended the Easton S3 but I cant find it in the size we need. How does the DeMarini compare to the Easton S3 26 inch 16 ounce 2 5/8 inch barrel? Can my son use the DeMarini for Pony baseball?

Youth big barrel or Senior League models like the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) do not typically come in that size. Actually, it is the only model we currently have in that size. The 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310) only goes as small as a 28 inch 18 ounce.
