The Rawlings Velo Hybrid baseball bat is hailed for its 90+ miles per hour results. The bat comes with a one-piece alloy construction which has been troublesome for so many manufacturers. Rawlings managed to create a bat which delivers very fast results. This bat also comes with a few features which make it quite unique. One of those features is the fiber reinforced composite cap. Velo is also completely in tune with BBCOR regulations and can be a solid option for players looking for an alloy alternative.
The bat has been well received by the baseball community. It comes with a -3 length to weight ratio and can be used by adults or in college tournaments. One of the best technologies used with the bat is the POP 2.0 which manages to elevate the product to a professional level. The technology comes with an improved weight distribution. This means players will enjoy a better balance which maximizes its playability and the sweet spot of the bat. A larger sweet spot means the bat may also be an option for intermediate players which might feel more comfortable using the latest technologies which make a bat a bit more forgiving.
There is a small learning curve with the bat, especially with the sound. The alloy makes the bat one of the loudest in its category.
The one-piece design and alloy construction make for an excellent bat. But the manufacturer also added an end cap which is made from composite with fiber reinforcements. This has allowed the bat to reduce the weight in unnecessary places like the end of the barrel. The design of the grip is also top quality making the bat easy to use and comfortable for most situations. The design of the bat comes with a lower weight which means players will have to adapt to the full handling process. The learning curve should not surpass a few games as the handling can be mastered in a short period of time.
The design and material choice will also mean the bat is quite loud and players should be aware of this before making a purchase. However, this should not be an obstacle for the bat on delivering amazing results.
The Rawlings Velo Hybrid baseball bat comes with an attractive price for its materials and design. As a BBCOR bat, it makes it one of the most versatile products on the market without making you feel there is much effort behind it. It truly performs super well with advanced players, who can quickly adapt to a different and much louder sound. It is also a great bat for its versatility and it delivers fast speeds constantly.
The fiber inserts also make it quite distinctive in an area where it seems that even the smallest changes can bring the next bat which will outperform most current options. This is a great bat, I mean really I love this one by Rawlings! With alloy, it will also bring an element of new experiences in an area where real innovation can be lacking.
