Description

The COMBAT MAXUM is back and continues to push the limits to new heights. COMBAT has made a name for themselves with the MAXUM in the bat industry by consistently delivering an extreme combination of an ultra-balanced feel, extremely fast swing weights, a HUGE sweet spot, and unparalleled performance. This COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 provides hitters with an almost unfair sweet spot that is 20-40% larger than competitor models! The MAXUM barrel covers more of the plate for more bases and more runs. Switching to the SL7MX108 will also result in an average of 38% Swing Weight Reduction which is the lowest swing weight ever! These models are one-piece, fully composite designs crafted with a seamless construction. A carbon-fiber sleeve runs the length of the bat providing uniform strength for a fine-tuned performance. Unlike typical composite bats that are created by rolling or overlapping layers of material, the MAXUM is produced with advanced Precision Molding Technology (PMT). The PMT process injects liquid resin into seamless high-quality carbon sleeves under extreme pressure. The result is an ultra-consistent product that eliminates seams and weak points that you get with the traditional process. No seams means no dead spots and in on the hands doesn't have to mean out at first base. Players can rest assured that the MAXUM will deliver perfectly tuned performance over a longer lifespan. COMBAT is so sure of this ground-breaking design, each baseball bat is backed by a full twelve (12) month warranty and a 30 Day Money-Back Guarantee! If you're not satisfied with the performance of the MAXUM within 30 days from your purchase, send it back to JustBats.com for a full refund or exchange. Additionally, the SL7MX108 features the USSSA 1.15 BPF Certification, a -8 length to weight ratio, and a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter. COMBAT: Measure Up to MAXUM! Get yours today with free shipping!

2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 bat (31-23) John M parent

Pros: Too soon to rate 5 stars on a couple of the ratings - just got it about a week ago - but so far so good. My 13U son is moving from an Easton 31-21 to this. He likes this bat. Mostly been hitting soft toss into a net. It has a nice pop and looks great. Good bang for the buck at $200. I didn't feel like spending $300-$325 so I went with this. Very satisfied so far.

Cons: None.

Awesome! Mashy parent

Pros: This Bat was delivered to our home in less than 24 hours after we ordered it. Thank you for the quick delivery. Even though we were impressed with the delivery, we are even more impressed with how the bat functions. It has a ton of pop and a large sweet spot. My son loves swinging it!

Cons: No cons!

When is this bat due out?
Danny
The official release date for this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX108) is set to be on 08/01/2016.
Ben
What is then difference with the 2016 model besides the artwork? Is anything structurally different?
Kaiks
Structurally, this 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX108) will be nearly the exact same as the 2016 MAXUM (MAXSL108). However, COMBAT mentions that this 2017 model has a 38% swing reduction on average while the 2016 model features a 26% swing reduction on average. I would say that this 2017 MAXUM may be a little easier to swing than the 2016 model.
Ben
Why is there such a big price drop on a 2017 model bat? Has there been problems with design or performance that would cause the reduction?
Mike
The reason for the price difference in the 2017 models has nothing to do with integrity of the bat but rather the price point we were able to secure the 2017 models from COMBAT.
Cameron
Does the 2017 MAXUM need to be broke in?
Joey
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 will be hot out of the wrapper.
Cameron
My son is currently 5'0" and 90 lbs. Based on what he was hitting last year, 29/19 and 30/20, should we increase to 31" bat anticipating growth throughout the season and also use during the 2018 season or stick with 30/22 due to the increased weight of the -8?
Dad
Based on the player's height and weight and what he has been swinging most recently with regards to weight, it would be best to get the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 in a 30 inch model.
Cameron
My son is going into 12u baseball this year and needs a longer and heavier bat. He is 5'6" and 160 pounds. What would be the best size for him?
Daddy Baller
Based on your sons height and weight we would recommend a 32" 24 ounce 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX108).
Carter
My son just turned 12. He currently uses a Mako XL30/20 composite bat. He has grown 3 inches this year and is now 5"3 and 100 lbs. Trying to decide between sticking with a drop 10 and moving to a 31/21 or possibly a heavier 30/22. He will evetually need to switch to drop 3 for middle school baseball next year so appreciate any thoughts.
TH
I would recommend going up to a -8 to start to transition to the -3. I would suggest the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 in the 31" 23 oz. size based on his height and weight.
Logan

coopaaa
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 in a 31" 23oz. size.
Logan
My son is 13, 5'5" and weighs 160 lbs. We are looking for a new bat. Suggestions?
Patti
Based on your sons height and weight I would recommend a 32"/24 ounce 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7MX108).
Carter
My son is playing on a 11u travel team he is 110 and is 4,11 has a chance for a 30in 22ou combat maxum drop eight should he get it
clay
Based on your player's height and weight, a 30" would be just right for him, and if you feel as though he can swing the -8, then the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 would work well for him.
Logan
What is the actual warranty on Combats? The description claims a full 12 month warranty. With Combat being out of business just curious on who covers the warranty.
Eric Jamesson
The warranty for Combat bats, such as the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108, are carried through us here at JustBats.com if purchased here. The warranty is good for a one-time replacement if something happens to the bat, just like the warranty directly through a manufacture.
Logan
I'm looking to purchase a big barrel for my son. He will be playing 11u baseball. He is 4'10" and weighs 180lbs. Which bat should he use??
Dad
Based on your player's height and weight, and if he can handle the weight of a -8 bat, I would suggest the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 in a 31" 23 ounce size.
Logan
Will there be no COMBAT bats made for 2018?
rgdet
Correct, there will be no Combat bats made in 2018 because Combat is out of business.
Kyle J.
My son is a fan of Combat products, and given that he needs to make the move to a drop 8 bat, we're thinking of pulling the trigger on this model. Is the warranty still honored (in case of cracking, etc.) even though Combat technically no longer exists as a company?
Brian
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 will still be covered by full twelve (12) month manufacturers warranty.
Max
My son is 5 foot five inches and 197 lbs. Do you think he would be able to handle this bat?
Dad
With the player specs listed, we would recommend a 33" option. As long as he has the physical strength, the COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 should not be a problem. He may even consider a -5 option.
Daveron
I noticed a made in Canada sticker in the picture. Was this model one of the last runs that were truly made by COMBAT in Canada?
Tom
To our knowledge, the 2016 models of the COMBAT MAXUMs were the last to be manufacturered in Canada. The COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7MX108 would be one of those models that was "designed in Canada" but made in China.
