2018 Louisville Slugger Select 718 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS718B5 review by Smith
Pros: We have tried all of the top USA 2018 bats and this bat by far is the best choice for power hitters. If your child can not handle the largest and heaviest bats this may not be the best choice for him, but for those that can it is the closest thing to the old bats and a great step in transition to drop 3 BBCOR bats for high school. Cons:We have none

My 13 year old son is pretty small for his age and is swinging a 2018 32"/29 oz Maxum BBCOR, and has no problem hitting line drives over the four and six holes but can't quite reach the outfield gaps. Do the new USA bats have the same pop as their BBCOR counterparts? Would this -5 USA bat give him a little more distance than his -3 BBCOR?

The new USA standard was designed to try and bring bats more to the performance of a wood bat, just like BBCOR was intended to do. The pop should be very similar between the two certifications, yes. A -5 bat would provide a little better bat speed due to the lighter weight, but obviously you have less weight at the point of contact. You may see better power if the added bat speed can overcome the loss in weight.

Which bat would have more pop? The 718 select -5 or the Prime 917 BBCOR? My son's travel league requires USSSA stamp -5 or BBCOR and middle school requires BBCOR. He seems to swing BBCOR well but not sure if there will be an advantage with -5 select.

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Select 718 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS718B5 is approved for leagues like AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, & Pony. This bat will feature a BPF similar to the BBCOR BPF of .50. I would consider swinging the 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518B5 for travel ball since the BPF on this bat will be much higher resulting in a hotter bat. To summarize; USA Bats are for League Play, Senior League Bats are for Travel Play, and BBCOR Bats are for High School and Collegiate Play.

In Minnesota at the beginning of the season some of the games can be kind of cold outside. If the temperature falls below a certain temp, can it damage the bat?

The common misconception is that the cold weather effects the bat. What happens when it gets cold is that the baseball actually hardens up and that's what can damage the bat. You will want to limit how many swings you take in the cold weather with the 2018 Louisville Slugger Select 718 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS718B5 and all other bats. Try to only use it for live at-bats during those colder games.
