The 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO (SLV10) Senior League will be very comparable in terms of design and materials used for its construction to the Rawlings VELO (SLVELO) Senior League.

On a scale of 1 to 10 ( 1 being no vibration and 10 being don't buy this bat) how is the vibration?
With the 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO: SLV10 Senior League bat being a one-piece bat, you will feel more vibration using it over a two-piece design. That said, you will only feel vibration on mishits, which will happen no matter what bat you are using. I would put this bat at roughly a 4 or 5 on the vibration scale that you suggested.
Is it okay to use the 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO in the cages (pitching machines)?
The 2014 Rawlings 5150 Velo (SLV10) Senior League bat should be fine to use for batting practice situations where approved baseballs are used. The issues with durability that are seen when working with pitching machines usually arise when the yellow dimpled cage balls are used. The bats are designed to hit regulation baseballs. The material makeup of the yellow cage balls is different, therefore, it reacts differently when striking the bat head. This difference can cause damage to the bat.

Both the 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO (SLV10) Senior League and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXR) Senior League are great bats. They are both well balanced for contact hitters. Because the Vexxum is a two-piece bat with a composite handle, it will have less vibration on contact and help with swing speed.
