Questions and Answers for Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBCA2

95238

What Rawlings bat has the most pop?

BBCOR certified bats like the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCA2) will all be rated to have the same maximum performance level that they are able to achieve due to safety regulations. "Pop" would be more a term associated with a player's hitting ability rather than a quantifiable feature of the bat.

What is the difference between this bat and the black Rawlings 5150?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCA2) and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB513) are very similar in terms of design and performance. The differences between the two model years would be mainly cosmetic in nature.

I am not a huge power hitter but more of a line drive hitter. Which bat would you recommend between this 5150 and the Louisville Slugger 515?

Both the, Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBCA2 and the Louisville Slugger Omaha 515 would be good bats for you as a contact hitter. However, the Omaha is going to be a little more balanced bat.

Does the Rawlings 5150 have a smaller barrel compared to other one-piece bats?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBCA2) will have the same barrel diameter and a similar barrel length to other one-piece alloy BBCOR bats.

I'm a contact hitter that relies on bat speed. Do you think I should get the 5150, the VELO, or the Easton S1? I'm 5'3" 100 lbs, and if you have any other suggestions please let me know.

As a contact hitter, I would probably suggest looking for a two-piece, balanced design. Therefore, I think the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14S1) would be an excellent choice for you. This model is designed to help player's generate a faster bat speed. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (DXCFC) is also a great choice for contact hitters as well.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 07, 2014

Which bat has a better overall performance: the 5150 or the Velo?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy (BBCA2) and Velo will both be very high performing bats. For a contact hitter I would recommend the Velo as it is the more balanced of the two. If you are a power hitter the 5150 may offer better performance.

Bobby Expert ·Jun 27, 2014

Which at do you guys think is better Rawlings 5150 or DeMarini OVERLORD? Does the DeMarini OVERLORD have trampoline resistance when the ball connects with the bat? It hard for me to decide I could use some help.

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) and the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD BBCOR (DXVDC) are both nice options. They are hard to compare because they are so different. The OVERLORD is a two-piece hybrid design with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. The 5150 is a one-piece alloy design. The preference for one over the other would come down to which style you prefer.

Tessa Expert ·Jun 20, 2014

Does the Easton S3 BBCOR 30/33 work well for power hitters?

The Easton S3 BBCOR: (BB13S3) works extremely well for power hitters. The one-piece, balanced, alloy design makes it easy for player to generate a faster bat swing, and helps maximize overall performance.

Merritt Expert ·Jun 09, 2014

What should I get? I'm looking at either a 5150 or the Louisville Slugger Raid?

Both the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) and the 2014 Louisville Slugger Raid (BBRD14-RR) would be good options. The preference would be between whether you like a stiff flex like the one piece 5150 or a two-piece hybrid design like the Raid. Contact hitters tend to like the two-piece bats whereas power hitters like a one-piece.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 02, 2014

91464

Does this bat have about the same feel as the Velo?

Both the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR (BBV3) would be balanced one piece designs. The aerodynamics and the end cap design on the VELO give it a bit lower M.O.I and better balance which makes it feel like it has a lighter swing weight overall.

Patrick Expert ·May 31, 2014

I am a contact and power hitter who plays 14u. Should I get the 5150 or the Voodoo Paradox?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) has a balanced swing weight and is a terrific bat for contact hitters. The Voodoo has an end loaded swing weight, which is great for hitters with power.

Which bat is better, the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy or the Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000 Composite? Also, my son is 5'10", 155 lbs, and is growing quickly. What size bat will fit him into next year?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: (BBCA2) would be an excellent model to take a closer look at, and will be higher performing. The one-piece alloy design makes this bat great for generating power, and will provide great pop. Based on the approximate players height and weight, I would probably recommend 33 inches.This size will allow him to use the bat next year as well.

Merritt Expert ·May 23, 2014

What is the difference between this bat and the normal 2013 5150 Velo?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2 Adult) will be very similar to the 2014 model, the main difference will be the updated graphics. The VELO will have a special composite end cap that helps reduce swing speeds and increase performance.

Should I go with this, or with the newest model of it? Which has better performance? Also, what balanced bats would you recommend to a 13 year old contact hitter looking for balance?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) will be designed and made from the same material as the newest model. It should hit very much the same and provide the same performance. Some other good balanced options for a player your age would be these: Rawlings VELO BBCOR (BBVELO), 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR (DXVXC), and the 2014 RIP-IT BBCOR AIR Elite (B1403E).

Brandon Expert ·Apr 29, 2014

What is the difference in the 5150 alloy and the alloy in the 2014 Rawlings Plasma?

The 5150 alloy that is used in the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) is a higher grade of alloy. It provides better performance and durability.

88557

Which bat should i get: 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR: DXVXC or the Rawlings 5150 alloy BBCOR BBCA2? Which one is better overall?

If you are more of a power hitter, I would recommend the Rawlings 5150 Alloy (BBCA2) since it is a one-piece design that is usually preferred by power hitters. If you are more of a contact hitter, I would suggest the DeMarini Vexxum NVS (DXVXC). The Vexxum is a two-piece design that is a better choice for contact hitters.

Kelby Expert ·Apr 21, 2014

Is the Rawlings 5150 hot out the wrapper or does it require a break in period?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 does not require a break in period as it is an all alloy bat, which makes it hot right out of the wrapper.

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) and the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD BBCOR (DXVDC) are both nice options. They are hard to compare because they are so different. The OVERLORD is a two-piece hybrid design with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. The 5150 is a one-piece alloy design.

I am 13 years old, 5 foot 7" and weigh 120 pounds and I was wondering if I was to buy this bat what size should I get?

For someone of your size we would recommend a 30" bat, although you could go up or down 1" depending on several other factors such as if you like to choke up or not, how far you stand from the plate in the batter's box, etc.

I am 14 years old and I am 5 foot 8" and weigh 135 pounds. What size 5150 should I buy?

Based on your height and weight, we would recommend the 32 inch size of the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) Adult. If the bat were available in the 31 inch length, that would be the more suggested fit but the 32 inch should work well also.

I am 14 years old, 5'10" and I weigh 180 pounds. What size bat should I use?

For a player this size using a BBCOR certified bat, we typically suggest a length of 33 inches. You may also drop to a 32" if you felt as if a 33" 30oz. would be too heavy.

How long should this bat last me?

It is tough to say how long any bat, including the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2), will last. With proper bat care (including not using it in temperatures below 60 degrees, regulating the bat to single player use, and not using it with the yellow dimpled cage balls) the bat should last at least a season, if not longer. It is also covered under a 12 Month Manufacturer warranty.

I play high school baseball in the spring in Wisconsin so it is pretty cold when we play. Would the cold weather affect this bats durability?

Generally, we do not recommend using/storing bats in temperatures below 55 degrees. It is also important to keep in mind balls being thrown in cold weather will be denser.This could potentially dent the bat and cause harm to the barrel. You can use bats in colder weather, just know that the risk for a defect will increase.

Why would you need a bat pack? Why 2 different bats?

Bat packs are something special that our company offers. These are special deals for our customers that are put together by our product team. By having two bats it gives you more flexibility and choice at a lower price. If you are looking for a practice bat, and a game bat, these bats are offered as two for the price of one. It is also good to have a back up bat in case something happens to your game bat. These are generally why some customers decide to buy a bat pack, but that decision will also be different depending on the customer.

BBCA VS BBCA2?? Any differences besides appearance between the models?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA Adult and Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult are both going to be a one-piece alloy design. The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult is going to be a little bit more balanced. Otherwise, they are both going to be extremely similar, and the cosmetic change is going to be one of the major differences.

How does this bat compare to the 2013 Rawlings VELO BBCOR and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2 Adult) will be very similar to the 2014 model, the main difference will be the updated graphic design. The VELO will have a special composite end cap that helps reduce swing speeds and increase performance.

All of the feedback and customer reviews that we've received on the 2013 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR (DXVNC) have been positive. The Vexxum has been a very popular bat and I would have no problem recommending it to any player who likes a two-piece hybrid bat with a composite handle and alloy barrel.

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult would be best recommended in a 33" at your size. The 32" 29 oz. would help get you faster bat speeds if that is needed.

Both the Marucci Team BBCOR (MCBT) Black Adult and the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) Adult are well balanced on-piece alloy bats for contact hitters. They will both have similar swing weights.

I am 13 and 5'2" and weigh 135, is this a good bat to get?

The Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2) Adult would definitely be a good choice for you. The One-Piece alloy design is going to make it feel as light as possible in your hands and has a balanced swing. We suggest using a 31" at your size but depending how comfortable you are swinging a -3 you could use a 32".

I am 14 and 5'9" and weigh 170 pounds. I struggle with hitting with power. What bat should i get?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 32" Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR (BBCA2). The 5150 has a balanced swing weight, which is great for a contact hitter. The one-piece fully alloy design will be beneficial since it will provide little flex and a stiffer overall feel, which power hitters tend to favor. This would be a great option.

Both the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult and the 2013 Rawlings VELO BBCOR: BBVELO Adult are great bats and good for contact hitters. The Rawlings VELO will be more balanced than the Rawlings 5150 allowing for more bat control.

My son is 5' 8" and 110 lbs. I'm struggling with what size bat to purchase.

Based on our Bat Coach Sizing Tool, a 30" or 31" model. This 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult was produced in a 30" model, but we are currently out of stock. The balanced swing weight of the 5150 would also be a good choice for a player his size because that design makes the bat easier to swing than others.

What are the qualities of the bats in one-piece and the two-piece designs? Which of the two are recommended for harder swing speeds and less vibration? My son is 5'10" and weighs 150 lbs. He is a power hitter.

A one-piece design, like the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult, will be stiffer and better suited for a power hitter. A two-piece bat will offer more flex and help to increase swing speed. Two-piece bats are better suited for contact hitters.

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult is a very balanced model with a stiff flex provided by its one-piece alloy design. Power hitters typically benefit more from using a bat with a stiff flex as it transfers the energy they generate more efficiently during contact.

For your son's size, I would actually recommend a 29" 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult.

How does this compare to the new Rawlings Plasma for this year? And, is this really any different than the model from last year?

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR will have a higher performing composite than the 2013 Rawlings Plasma. The 2013 Rawlings 5150 will be slightly more balanced than last years model because it has a composite light end cap.

I've seen the 2013 Rawlings 5150 bat and some say, "Custom Alloy" on the barrel. Others say "2013 5150 Alloy," what's the difference?

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult bat features Rawlings 5150 Alloy. The other bat you are referring to is also made from the same 5150 Alloy material. They will act and perform the same.

I'm 5'4" and weigh 85 pounds. I'm 12 years old (I will be 13 when the season starts) and going into my first travel season and I will be playing on a 60/90 field. Would you recommend the 31.5" or 32" bat?

Based on your size, a 31.5" model of the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 is recommended over the 32" model.

Which bat is better 2013 Rawlings 5150 bbcor or the 2013 rip it prototype air bbcor

Both the 2013 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR and the 2013 Rip It Prototype Air are high performing, balanced, alloy bats. One difference between the bats would be Rip It's "Love it, or return it" guarantee. You have 30 days to use the bat and decide if you want to keep it or return it to Rip It for a full refund.

What are the main differences between this bat and last year's 5150 model? Also, is it as balanced as last years? I have last years and just love the balance so I'm just wondering if the only thing different is the technology which is better or if they altered the balance so it handles differently as well.

The major differences between the new 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult bat and the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA Adult bat are the new 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult bat features a lightweight end cap and has a more balanced swing weight. Rawlings has also attempted to improve the quality and durability of the material used in this bat.

For a 15 y/o 5'10/140lbs contact hitter with occasional power, would this bat be a good option or would the Velo be a better option?

The 5150 is best for a player with above average swing speed and power. The VELO is more balanced and better suited for a player with average or below average strength and swing speed.

What type of player is the 5150 best suited for?

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 is a great all-around bat and is not geared towards one specific type of hitter.

I am a thirteen year old middle school player. I am 5' 1" and about 120 lbs and was wondering if this bat or the Velo would be a better choice. I swing a pretty good bat speed and have above average BBS with drop 10 bats. But I'm worried that this bat might be too endloaded. I need to know if the COMP-lite endcap will take away the endloaded feel which I hate.

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 is not an end-loaded bat. If you have above average swing speed, the 5150 would be a great choice.

I am a college player, we have the option to choose the 2013 5150 or the 2013 Velo...What is a better bat in you option, which bat has more "pop"...

That depends on the hitter. A player with average or below average strength and swing speed will probably have more pop with the Velo due to it's lighter swing weight. A player with above average strength and swing speed will probably have more pop with the 5150.

Which would be a better choice for a first BBCOR bat (Middle School) Rawlings 5150 or TPX Omaha BB136? My son is 5'3 and 100 lbs, and needs 30" 27oz bat.

The 2013 Rawlings 5150, and the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha Balanced are both terrific performing bats. The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha Balanced will probably be the better choice though, because it is the most balanced. Going with a really balanced bat for his first BBCOR bat is better, because it won't feel he is making as much of a jump in weight.

What does the new Composite-Lite end cap do for the bat?

The new Comp-Lite end cap works well with the Rawlings' proprietary Bi/fusion process to give the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 more durability and more pop in one single, solitary unit.

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR would be an excellent choice for a thirteen year old player. It is a very balanced bat with great pop.

I'm a 6'1", 190 lbs. power hitter. I would like to speed my bat up through the zone. Will I feel a difference in the 32.5" and the 33"?

Yes, you will be able to feel a difference in the swing weight of the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult bat. Even though we are talking about a 1/2 of an oz. it can be felt when swinging the 5150. If you are looking for more bat speed through the hitting zone this would be a great choice for your next bat. It is a One-Piece Alloy product that is Balanced in Swing Weight. It will feature a Comp-Lite End Cap. At your size I would say go ahead and swing the 33" 30oz. model and you will see improved bat speed and performance.

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult baseball bat is a good BBCOR bat that is a one-piece bat with a balanced swing weight. It would be a good bat for someone who needs a -3 bat.

Is the Rawlings 5150 for a power hitter? If not what would be recommended?

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR bat is a one piece alloy which is best for a power hitter, so yes it would be a good bat for you. The Easton XL3 is an end loaded one-piece bat, which will be even better for power hitters than the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR bat.

Noah Expert ·Oct 20, 2012

Would you recommend the 2013 rawlings 5150 or the original 5150 velo for a contact hitter that can often out some power behind it?

That depends on the player's strength and swing speed. If they have average to above average strength and swing speed, I would recommend the Rawlings 5150. If the player has below average strength and swings speed, I would recommend the Rawlings 5150 VELO.

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult bat and the Marucci Team BBCOR: MCBT Adult bat will have similar feels. Both of them are One-Piece all Alloy designs with very balanced swing weights. The -3 drop will prove to be very easy to swing through the hitting zone of both models. The 5150 will feature the Precision Optimized Performance (pOp) and the Comp-Lite End Cap.

How is the weight balance of this bat? Is this bat recommended for power hitters or contact hitters? Is the bat like white white (like plane white) or is it more like a mix between gray and white? Also does this have good pop?

The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 is a balanced bat in my opinion and is not geared towards a specific type of hitter. It's a great option for an all-around hitter. It's a pearl white and has above average pop.

Is the 2013 5150 the same spects as the 2012 5150 Velo? Is there any difference in balance and pop? I've noticed they changed the end cap to the one they used on the machine last year.

The 2012 Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR: BB51V will have a lighter swing weight than the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2. The differnence in pop comes down to the player. A hitter with higher swing speeds will probably see better pop with the 2013 Rawlings 5150. A hitter with average or below average swing speed will probably see better pop with the 2012 Rawlings 5150 VELO. The 2013 Rawlings 5150 also features the new endcap designed for improved durability.

The 2012 Rawlings 5150 Alloy and the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy are very similar with a couple of changes that increase the performance of the 2013 model. The 2013 5150 Alloy features a lighter weight end plug and a new straight edge end cap design to eliminate some minor cracking issues. Between the straight edge design and lighter end cap, there is a 200 MOI (moment of intertia) advantage from the 2012 model to the 2013 model, which allows the batter to get through the hitting zone faster.
