What customers say about "Key Specs"
Rawlings Velo Hybrid Balanced BBCOR High School/Collegiate Baseball Bat
  • Qualifies for high school play. Good solid construction.
  • He loves it. He received his new Quattro but continues to use the Velo. Great pop off the bat and he likes the balance of the bat.
  • This has been a great purchase. The bat is well balanced like a 110 wood bat. Bought it for my son to use in high school and babe Ruth leagues.
  • Great bat, I would keep the same size as a composite bat as I had to adjust but my first hit was a 333 foot homerun and after that just inline drives to the outfield.
  • This is my son's fourth Rawlings Velo BBCOR. Nothing beats it for a combination of balance, pop and durability, particularly when you get them on closeout.
Marucci CAT7 BBCOR Baseball Bat
  • My son just moved up to HS baseball and had tried a few BBCOR bats and they all felt relatively dead compared to his old -5 USSSA stamped bat. When we tried this, he fell in love with the bat.
  • This bat is great. I have a 15yr old who is about medium height and 100 lbs and he can handle this bat fine. Switched from an old 32” drop 3 two piece bat because he was getting jammed a lot and it had a rubbber ring.
  • My son loves this bat. He just moved up the ranks and had to purchase a new bat. After all his research, he settled on this one. He says it's perfectly balanced and he has been getting hit after hit.
  • This has been a great bat for my 14 year old son. I have to say it has helped his batting and distance hitting.
  • My high school son loves this bat. He had the Cat 6 last year. Our only complaint is they did nothing to improve the quality of the paint on the bat.

What customers say about "Features"
Rawlings Velo Hybrid Balanced BBCOR High School/Collegiate Baseball Bat
  • Great impact on the ball. Very well balanced. Best price I could find to my doorstep for this quality bat.
  • Overall we are very pleased with the purchase and performance.
  • Bat has good pop with out that ringing sounds that previous Rawlings bat have.
  • Balls flies right off the bat even off the tee into the net. It has great pop, great grip. Better than Easton mako.
  • Great Bat, fantastic pop, speed and power. My son loved it the so much that after he lost his first one he opted for the same bat over more expensive models.
Marucci CAT7 BBCOR Baseball Bat
  • Best pop for your buck...balanced, single piece bat that's durable and can compete with any $450 bat out of the wrapper!
  • It has a nice ring to it when he hits the ball. Overall, a good value relative to more expensive and newer models.
  • Its a bat, it hits balls. I'll leave all this subjectivity about "pop" out of it. Nice grip. Grip swells at the knob a bit so if that isnt your thing, keep moving along.
  • We bought this bat for our son and he loves it. It has a great grip and fit our expectations.
  • The grip is great. This bat is loud! Inside pitches that used to barely jam him is not a problem anymore. The exit velocity of the baseball off this bat is a big improvement.
