Questions and Answers for 2014 Rawlings RX4 Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: SL5RX4
Is this bat BBCOR?
No. The 2014 Rawlings RX4 Alloy (SL5RX4) Senior League bat would feature the USSSA 1.15 bpf certification. The model that would be BBCOR certified would be the 2014 Rawlings RX4 BBCOR Alloy (BBRX4).
Is there any part of this bat that is composite? My son's league has a restriction on -5 bats, and I notice many "one piece alloy" bats actually have a composite end cap.
The 2014 Rawlings RX4 Alloy (SL5RX4) Senior League is 100% alloy and does not have a composite end cap.
Are the new 2014 Easton alloy one piece bats comparable to the 2014 Rawlings?
The biggest difference between the 2014 Easton one-piece alloy design, and the 2014 Rawlings, will be the type of alloy material used in the barrel. Easton will incorporate THT100 aluminum, and Rawlings uses 5150 alloy. Both of these will be comparable in the sense they are both extremely powerful materials.
How does this bat compare to the VELO? Will it have a similar MOI or trampoline effect off the barrel? How is the material different and what does it translate to in performance?
The trampoline effect will be very comparable between the VELO and RX4. The VELO may have a slight edge in that aspect with the Precision Optimized Performance barrel technology, but both are regulated by the same performance certification. The VELO definitely has a lower MOI and is the most balanced bat in the Rawlings Senior League product line.The bats are made from different blends of alloy, but that really affects durability and the longevity the bat offers more than anything.
Which is a better bat, this one or the Omaha? Looking for a good bat that will help with bat speed, is priced below $100, and is 30" 25 oz. My son is 14, 5' 2" 105 lbs.
The 2014 Rawlings RX4 Alloy: SL5RX4 Senior League and the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: SL1365 Senior League are balanced one-piece all alloy bats. They are comparable for helping with bat speed.
How would you compare this bat to the 2014 Voodoo?
The 2014 Rawlings RX4 Alloy: SL5RX4 Senior League will have more of a balanced swing weight. The 2014 DeMarini Voodoo: DXVD5 Senior League is a two-piece design with a slightly end loaded swing weight and is better suited for power hitters.
Are all of the graphics on this bat painted? Or are some of them stickers/decals?
The graphics on the 2014 Rawlings RX4 Alloy: SL5RX4 Senior League are painted on the bat.
Which type of current alloy on the market would you compare the new Rawlings RX4 to as far as durability and performance, ex. 7050, 7046, etc?
