Pros:  Wow! this bat is no joke hot, my kid has always been a contact hitter and has been blistering the ball with this bat. Only had for two weeks but not only does my 12yr old love it, his whole team fights over it! I think I'm gonna buy the drop 5 too just because of how impressed I am with this model!!

Cons:  If your pitching, look out... Really!

Pros:  Great pop, HUGE sweet spot, great balanced swing for contact hitters, but don't let that fool you... my 12 year old hit his first ever home runs (plural)... two nights in a row! First night, in the park grand slam (playing deep fences). Second, short 12U fences - first out of the park home run. He's had this bat a WEEK! He was swinging a -10 Portent, great bat, but this one is certainly a huge step up. Not sure about durability yet, but our Portent lasted over a year, so I'm guessing this should be a no brainer. CF Zen, Mako Beast, and Cat 7 players on our team were drooling over it. Only other bat to hit a dinger on our team during that time was a Marucci Hex (1 piece). We loved the Maxum so much I bought my 9 year old a -11. Big fan of the 1 piece composite bats, it's a crying sobbing shame that Combat won't be anymore!!! I seriously might buy the next step up for my son so he'll have it in a year or so!

Cons:  Last year it's made... that's about it. I want more, still crying over Combat... Marucci will probably have to get my business going forward. Love this bat.

Pros:  For under $100, you can't find a better composite bat. The VIGOR has insane pop. It comes wrapped with Lizard Skin already so you don't have to buy one. Super balanced. My son chooses this over the $400+ bats he has in the dugout.

Cons:  The knob seems a little cheap but as long as it stays on, I'm not complaining.

Pros:  My son is pounding the ball with this bat. He's used other good bats, Easton, DeMarini, Marucci, LS, but this one has more pop than all of them. He's hitting the ball harder than he ever has.

Cons:  Vibrates a little when he doesn't quite barrel up, but not often. There's allot of barrel to work with. Great bat.

Pros:  My undersized 12-yr old son smacked the ball this season including a home run. Struck out once all year, so no problem getting the bat around and putting it in the right place. He loves the bat. This is his second Combat, has had a -10 and this season the -8. We'll do a -5 for next year. By the end of the season, all but 2 kids were using this bat.

Cons:  Several vibration hits early in use. By the time the season started, it was good to go.

Cons:  looks like it has a cheap barrel but as long as it stays on i'm fine.

Pros:  Bought for my 7th grader. Good idea, but I failed to realize he is already ready for -3 and thia bat was just too small for him. He's 5'7 and 150# at 12. Now, the bat seems to have great pop for -8 and is likely a good feel for a smaller power hitter, but make sure your kid is not ready for a heavier bat before purchasing.

Cons:  vibration

Would this be a good option for our son to move to after having his Combat Maxum 29" 19oz 2 5/8? (He is one year older, stronger, taller, heavier than when we first purchased his Combat Maxum.)

Assuming your player was fond of his previous Maxum, I would certainly recommend the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX108. It will have an extremely balanced swing weight to allow for it to feel lighter than most every other -8 bat, which will make the transition to a heavier bat much easier.

My son has used the 2015 Combat Maxum for the past two season. It is a 30"/22 oz size. The bat still has a lot of pop, but it has been used a lot. He really likes the one-piece bats (he used the Portent 30"/20 oz size before that). He has really liked COMBAT, but is there something similar out there to the MAXUM? Also, my son is going to be 12. He is 5'3" and 120 lbs. Would you move up in length?

If you are wanting to get a one-piece, all-composite bat; COMBAT is going to be the best option for that style of bat. Based upon your height and weight, we would make a general recommendation of getting a bat in the 31" length. You could look for the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX108) in the 31"/23 oz size. Or if you were interested in the 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL8MX105) in the 31"/26 oz size; that would be a recommendation to think about as well.

What's the difference between Vigor and Maxum?

The 2018 COMBAT MAXUM -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL8MX108 has a more balanced feel with a slightly longer barrel. The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108 will feature a more end heavy feel with a slightly shorter barrel.

My son is 5'7" and 116 lbs, would you recommend the -8 or -5 COMBAT Vigor? He is more of a power hitter but I'm not sure if the -5 is too heavy for him.

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 31 inch bat. If the player is in 7th grade, then the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108 would be a great option to consider. If the player is going into 8th grade/in 8th grade, then going with a -5 model would be a better option to help the player transition into high school.

Do I need to have my boy do anything special to make sure this bat gets broke-in properly?

For the first day of use, I would recommend moving from tee work - to soft toss - to live BP. After that first day, you can go right into live BP immediately when you start using the bat. I would imagine that within 2-3 days of use, the bat should be broken-in and top performance should be displayed.

With Combat going out of business and reading other questions regarding the warranty, if there is a need for a warranty claim and the bats are no longer in stock, what will Just Bats offer as a replacement?

If a warranty replacement is needed on a Combat, such as the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108, and there are no longer any bats available to replace with, the original price paid for the Combat would be credited toward another bat as replacement.

Can this bat be used in Babe Ruth 14-15 year olds?

To my knowledge, Babe Ruth at that age requires composite bats, such as the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108, to be BBCOR certified, which it is not. To use a -8 bat, it would need to feature an alloy barrel.

Why is this 2017 bat's price so low compared to its original price?

Combat is out of business, so we went ahead and bought a lot of their remaining stock at a discount price, which allows us to sell these bats for cheaper than normal. We also are not price locked by the since they are currently out of business.

How does this compare to the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4? Barrel size, sweet spot, balance, etc.

The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL108 and the COMBAT Portent G4 are very similar bats. Both of these bats are one-piece fully composite designed bats with balanced swing weights. The VIGOR will have a slightly larger/more extended barrel compared to the Portent G4 (very, very small difference).
