What bat is the better pick, the 2013 Vexxum or Rawlings 5150?
I would recommend the DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR (DXVNC) if you are a contact hitter. The two-piece design on the Vexxum will add more trampoline effect off the barrel, which the contact hitters prefer. If you are a power hitter I suggest the 2013 Rawlings 5150 (BBCA2) since it is a one-piece design that power hitters prefer.
