2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 review by Joe H.
Pros: a bat rep held a demo at our local little league complex. he brought Rawlings, Demarini, Easton. Prior to the demo, I had already settled on a new Ghost X -10 for my 11 yr old who will be 12 in 2018 LL season. He hit with all of them, he preferred the Rawlings Velo -5. Most everyone in our area is all Easton. We have had 5 different Mako's and loved them all but he said the Rawlings felt the best, so that's what I got. As far as lack of pop, he was still able to drive the ball 200 ft, same as he could with the Easton 32/20 mako that he has now. This bat makes a huge "ping". Reminds you of the good old days before composites. Cons:None so far, bat was demo'd only.

Ask A Question

What is different between the Rawlings VELO and Rawlings 5150?

The main difference is the Comp-Lite end cap that improves the balance of the bat for better swing speed.

Kyle J. Expert ·Mar 14, 2018


My son is turning 13yo in May. He will be playing up in Juniors this year but playing on a U12 tournament team. He's about 5' and 105lbs. Last year he used an Easton 31" -13 in league games but used a 31" -11 2 5/8 in tournaments. He tried out a -8 Ghost in the cages and seemed fine at that weight but the -5 seemed ok too. Is trying the Velo -5 unreasonable at his size? I was trying to move up in weight in anticipation of high school ball.

It is definitely going to be a big jump from a -11 but soon he will be using BBCOR bats and have to make the jump so I think that it is a good idea to get a start on that now. Based on his height and weight we would recommend a 30"/25 ounce 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5.

Carter Expert ·Mar 05, 2018


My son is 5'8" 160lbs 13 years old. He is in Babe ruth and must have a USA stamped bat or BBCOR.50. I was looking at this bat or was wondering if another would be a better fit. He has excellent hand/eye coordination and was wondering what length/weight would be good for him.

Based on your sons height and weight the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 in the 32"/27 ounce size would be a great option for him.
