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.

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.

Is this bat legal in both Nations and USSSA?

The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 will feature the USSSA bat stamp as well as BPF 1.15. As for use in Nations games, if you are needing a bat for 14U then the bat must be either -5 or -3 (thus it would not be legal since the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 is a drop -8). For 13U and below there are no bat restrictions. All high school divisions must use a BBCOR certified bat.

How does the 2016 XL3 compare with the 2015 XL3?

This 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X38) will differ from the 2015 XL3 in regard to cosmetics and drop weight (the 2015 was a -9 model and this bat is a -8 model). However, besides those differences, the bats will be pretty much the same. Both bats feature HMX alloy and an end-loaded swing weight.

My son is transitioning from a -10 to a -8 this year. Would this be a good -8 bat to go with?

Given that the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 has an end loaded feel, it may make the transition from a -10 to a -8 a bit more challenging if he has not swung an end loaded bat previously.

My son has the 2015 XL3 30 inch 21 ounce -9. Is there any difference between the 2016 XL3 and the Orange 2015 XL3?

The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X38) has a -8 length to weight ratio so it is a bit heavier drop weight than what was featured on the 2015 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15X39).
