Questions and Answers for 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR: B1410 Senior League
My son is 9 years old about 4'6" and weighs about 110 lbs. His coach says he is a power hitter, however my husband thinks he is more of a consistent contact hitter. He is usually the 4th batter. We are looking at the RIP-IT Senior AIR: B1410, Vexxum and the Easton XL1. We are having a hard time deciding which bat is best for him. Could use some recommendations.
The DeMarini Vexxum is a balanced, two-piece bat and is best designed for a contact hitter. The Easton XL1 is an end loaded bat and is typically used by a power hitter. The stiff, one-piece design of the 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR ( B1410) is also used by a power hitter, but offers a balanced swing weight.
What size bat should I go with for an 11 year old who is 4'6" and 100 lbs?
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" model in the 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR (B1410) Senior League.
Is this bat stamped as BBCOR bat or is it a BBCOR bat? My sons league requires the players to use a bat stamped as a BBCOR bat.
No, the 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR (B1410) is a youth big barrel bat. The adult BBCOR model is the 2014 RIP-IT BBCOR AIR (B1403A) Adult.
Whats the difference between the B1410 and the B1410B? I see one is 2 3/4" and one is 2 5/8".
The only difference between the 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR (B1410) and the 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR (B1410B) is the barrel diameter.
I was curious as to the size bat to get for my son. He is going into his second season in 12U. He's about 95 lbs and has been using a 29"19oz for the past two years. Should I make the jump up to 31"21oz or would that be too much? He's got good bat speed but the outside pitches are killing him!
If you think he has the bat speed and strength to make the jump to a 31", then that would be a great suggestion for him, size wise.
