New for 2017! 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 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 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 AB7MX103 will also result in an average of 38% Swing Weight Reduction which is the lowest allowable BBCOR swing weight available. 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 for a full refund or exchange. Additionally, the AB7MX103 features a -3 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, and the BBCOR Certification making it legal for play at the high school and collegiate level.

add_circle_outlinePros: I just got this bat and have used it a few times. It has tons of pop and the barrel is massive. So far it feels great and i haven't felt any vibration at all in any of the swings i have taken. The grip feels great and when swinging it felt like a 32" but it was really a 33".
Just about the best bat I've ever swong
add_circle_outlinePros: Pros: The bat has great pop and gripping. I hardly get any vibration and when I swing the bat's weight reduces which in return giving have a better swing and farther hit balls. All around a great bat.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Cons: NONE! or at least I haven't found any yet. I've had this bat for about 2 months now and I practiced with is every other day into my hitting net. I can't say it's the best bat ever becuase no bat can be absolutely perfect.
add_circle_outlinePros: Bat has great pop! Right out of the wrapper. My 14 year old son is not a "big guy" but he's crushing the ball. Line drives straight out to centerfield fence. More of contact hitter than power hitter. Big difference compared to Mizuno Covert. Bat is balanced, feels like 32-29.
Son says compared to more expensive bats, this Combat Maxum is just as good at a much better price.
remove_circle_outlineCons: The only con is the Lizard Skin grip tape. It's too thin and is coming unglued. Will need to replace. Only had bat for 2 weeks so hopefully no other cons will arise.
This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 comes with an all-composite build to it. In the past, composite bats have required a break-in period to show game ready performance. 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.
Is there any difference in the 2017 MAXUM BBCOR bat vs the 2016 model other than the cosmetics?
The main difference between the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 and the 2016 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: MAXAB103 would be the cosmetics. The new 2017 model should feature a lighter swing weight feel as well.
I need a full honest opinion. I am basically my high school team's "big man" or "power hitter" and I was wondering if this bat is well suited for big guys like me or for smaller contact guys. If not, what is your personal opinion on what bat I should choose.
The Combat Maxum is a contact bat but can be used for power as well. I typically recommend the DeMarini Voodoo or the Easton MAKO XL for power hitters.
How is the bat life compared to the 2016 Maxum model?
The bat life, performance wise, of the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 is about the same as the 2016 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: MAXAB103. The precision molding technology of the 2017 model has been enhanced in order to increase the durability compared to the 2016 model.
How does the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen stack up against the 2017 Combat Maxum?
The 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC and the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 both have a fully composite construction with a balanced swing weight. They have about the same degree of durability and performance. The MAXUM has a slightly larger sweet spot. The main difference between these two models are their design. The DeMarini CF Zen has a two-piece construction that allows for additional barrel flex that will enhance trampoline effect. The COMBAT MAXUM is a one-piece bat that is more stiff and is generally preferred by power hitters.
Do you have a 32 inch 29 ounce in stock?
At this moment of time (8/28/2016) we do not have the 32"/29oz 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB7MX103). We have plans to get it soon, but I would not be able to give an exact day.
I am 5'8" and 145. I hit 1 hole on my team and have had a Rawlings VELO 32/29 for about a year now. Is this a good bat for me even if it's composite? I've been using alloy and what is a good size for me?

Really the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 and the 2016 model are the same other than the cosmetic appearance.
How do you properly break-in this bat to get the best pop? When it's cold, what is the temperature I shouldn't be swinging this bat?
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 is pretty hot out of the wrapper and it really does not require much of a break-in period. However, we suggest taking about 50-10 swings off a tee while rotating the barrel a quarter turn every few swings. It is best to gradually work your swing speed up from about 50% to 1005. Ideally, you do not want to use the bat in temperatures below 55 degrees.
My son is 16 and 6'3". What size bat should he use?
Based on your son's height, he could use the 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 in a 33 or 34 inch model. The size to get will be dependent on overall strength and personal preference.

Would this be a good bat for a contact hitter or not?
This 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat (AB7MX103) will feature a balanced swing weight and would work well for a contact hitter.
I am 6 foot and 200 pounds. Would this be a good bat for a power hitter or would the DeMarini Voodoo Insane be more of a fit?
Both bats would work fine, although most power hitters usually prefer an end loaded bat, which the DeMarini Voodoo Insane has. The Combat Maxum is a balanced model, generally better suited for contact hitters.
I'm about 5'9" and 115 pounds and I need a new bat for high school. Would you recommend this or 2017 Easton Z-CORE SPEED Limited Whiteout BBCOR Baseball Bat?
The 2017 COMBAT MAXUM BBCOR Baseball Bat: AB7MX103 will be a one-piece all composite model with a more balanced swing weight than the 2017 Easton Z-CORE SPEED Limited Whiteout BBCOR, which is a one-piece alloy design. Both are great bats and it really comes down to whether you prefer alloy or composite and which bat feels best in your hands.
How do you go about getting the 30 day free trial of this bat? My son is 13 and just went to a -5. We are looking to go up to a -3. He is 5'4" and 145 lbs.
