Questions and Answers for COMBAT Wanted Youth Baseball Bat: WANYB112
Do you think a young 12 year old power hitter should use this over the mako?
The COMBAT Wanted Youth Baseball Bat (WANYB112) features a two-piece full composite design with a balanced swing weight. The 2015 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB15MK) does feature a similar design, however it also has a sharper barrel taper and a larger sweet spot.
What is the coldest temperature this bat should be played in? We live in PA and when the season starts at times it's less than 50 degrees, actually probably less than 40 degrees.
We would recommend not using your 2014 COMBAT Wanted Youth Baseball Bat (WANYB112) below 55 degrees. When it gets cold the baseball is actually the culprit. It becomes much denser and harder and the barrels on bats are not made to handle the harder baseball potentially causing damage to the barrel.
Does this bat meet 1.15 BPF?

Does this bat have as long of a barrel as the MAKO?
No, the 2014 COMBAT Wanted Youth Baseball Bat (WANYB112) will not feature as long of a barrel as the Easton MAKO model.
My son is currently using a lower end DeMarini 27/15. He will be playing traveling baseball on a 9U extremely competitive team. Its time to upgrade to an elite bat. He is 50" tall and weighs 69 lbs. He is a line drive hitter and would need a bat he can get through the zone quickly. Would this be a good upgrade for him?
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 28" model in the 2014 COMBAT Wanted Youth Baseball Bat (WANYB112). The Wanted is one of the lightest and most balanced bats on the market. It will help a player generate quick bat speed. The two-piece design and balanced swing weight are ideal features for a line drive hitter.
Does the COMBAT Wanted come in a 2 5/8" barrel? My son would need a 29/12.
The 2014 COMBAT Wanted: (WANSL110) Senior League features a 29/19 with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. However, we unfortunately do not have a -12. The -10 is the next lightest size that we have available in the big barrel.
What is the difference between the COMBAT Wanted and the Easton MAKO?
The 2014 COMBAT Wanted (WANYB112) features a two-piece, high performing composite design. The COMBAT Wanted has a large sweet spot and a -12 length to weight ratio. The MAKO will feature a -11 length to weight ratio and a slightly larger sweet spot. The MAKO also has a very balanced swing weight. Both feature some of the hottest composites available.
My son is 4'3" and 55 lbs. He is more of a contact hitter than a power hitter. We have a Combat Reloaded in 29/17 he used last year but im thinking abt getting this Combat Wanted in 29/17. I know the Wanted is a two piece and the Reloaded is a one piece. Given his size, is there any advantages with one bat over the other? Would the 29/17 be too much bat for him?
Based on your son's height and weight, the 29 inch model of the 2014 COMBAT Wanted (WANYB112) Youth bat would be a good size for him. The two-piece design will offer more flex through the zone which will create a whipping motion that will whip the bat head forward at the point of contact. The additional flex can help increase bat head speed to produce more power. Also, the two-piece design can offer a bit more sting and vibration reduction in the handle of the bat. This can help the player's confidence to swing through the pitch rather than being scared of stinging his hands.
What is the difference between the Wanted Bat and the Reloaded Bat? And can those 2 bats be in a bat pack?
The 2014 COMBAT Wanted: WANYB112 Youth is a two-piece composite bat. The main difference is that the Reloaded bat is a one-piece. The bat packs we have are compiled with bats that are already discounted. Since the Wanted is brand-new, it will not be placed in a bat pack for some time.
Which bat has the lighter swing weight? COMBAT Pure Gear -12 or COMBAT Wanted -12?
The 2014 COMBAT Wanted: WANYB112 Youth will have a similar swing weight as the COMBAT Pure Gear.
Which is a lighter swinging bat? The Combat Wanted -12 drop or the Combat B2 Reloaded -12 drop.
