Questions and Answers for 2014 COMBAT Portent Youth Baseball Bat: PORYB112

What is the difference between the COMBAT Portent and the COMBAT Wanted? I understand one is a "two-piece" and the other is a "one-piece". How does the structure influence the bat?

The 2014 COMBAT Portent Youth Baseball Bat: (PORYB112) incorporates a one-piece structure. Generally, a one-piece design tends to be a little bit stiffer, and is usually preferred by power hitters.The 2014 COMBAT Wanted Youth Baseball Bat: (WANYB112) features a two-piece design, and this structure provides players with added flex through the zone. Therefore, this design tends to be preferred by contact players. Ultimately, the structure and feel will be one of the biggest differences between these two models.

My son currently plays with an Easton 27" 14 oz. Reflex. He's about 4' tall, 45 lbs. I was looking at the Portent or the Wanted WANYB112. Does one have a lighter swing weight than the other? We tried the new DeMarini Voodoo Overlord 28" 15 oz. but he wasn't comfortable with it.

The 2014 COMBAT Portent (PORYB112) is a one-piece bat similar to the Easton Reflex. The 2014 COMBAT Wanted (WANYB112) is a two-piece design and is designed for a contact hitter. Both bats are very balanced bats and are very high performing.

The 2014 COMBAT Portent (PORYB112) features one-piece design. Typically, power hitters tend to prefer a one-piece design since it provides a stiffer feel when the bat makes contact with the barrel.

I'm looking for the largest length to weight ratio bat with the longest barrel. Any suggestions?

This 2014 COMBAT Portent: PORYB112 Youth is one of the better options for that criteria. I would also suggest the Louisville Slugger Vertex: YB13V or DeMarini Voodoo: DXVDL if you were looking for a -13 model with a large sweet spot.

What is the difference between the Portent and Pure Gear -12?

The 2014 COMBAT Portent: PORYB112 Youth is made through a new process with a newer material. The voids in between the composite material have been filled for a stronger barrel and better performance. The Gear technology in the Pure Gear allows the barrel walls to be a bit thinner, which provides more trampoline effect and increases the sweet spot, but still meets performance regulations. Aside from those two differences, the bats are very comparable in design and feel.

Is this bat the replacement for the B4 youth? Same balance and stiffness...? I am assuming the B4 is not legal next year as it only has the words 1.15 instead of the 1.15 shield.

This 2014 COMBAT Portent: PORYB112 Youth would be the model that replaced the B4 Youth B4YB1. Both are balanced, one-piece composite bats. As far as the stamp goes, your league should be just fine with the B4. Little League and other Youth Leagues only require the bat say BPF 1.15, not necessarily the new BPF 1.15 stamp. I would check with a league official, but the B4 with the 2 1/4" barrel should still be approved for play.

Does it have to be broken in? If so, how many hits will it take to break-in?

The 2014 COMBAT Portent: PORYB112 Youth is a composite bat and will require a break-in period. We recommend 150-200 swings off of a tee or soft toss with real baseballs. Start the swing at 50% power and steadily work your way up. The barrel should be rotated a 1/4" after each swing to assure complete barrel coverage.
