Last season we had the 28-16 B4 ComBAT and my son had a great season with it, the key is to break the bat in with lots of tee work, that bat still has lots of life left to it. This season we are going with the ComBAT 28-16 Portent, the only difference I have seen so far is the barrel on the Portent is thinner than that of the B4, maybe 1/2-3/4 of an inch in diameter. So far with 250 +swings off Tee (so far) this bat is every bit as good as the B4, lots of pop and my son loves it. Ball jumps off bat. (Posted on 1/22/14)
My 11yr old has the 31/21 portant and this one the 31/19. He uses the -12 almost all of the time. After several 100 soft tosses this bat seems very hot and ready to go. Worked great for winter ball. My son was able to keep his hands back longer then the heavier endloaded bats and had plenty of good rips into right field and when he was pitched inside he roped it down 3rd. He was able to make solid contact off the nastiest of little league pitchers just because of his quicker hands. Great bat very pleased to have one. (Posted on 1/22/14)
COMbat has added another bat to the already loaded arsenal. If you are confused as to which bat to purchase just like me, then let me make the choice simple. The Combat Portent is an absolute beast! I purchased this bat for my 7 year old son who plays travel baseball. Through the spring and summer seasons he used an Easton Reflex 27" 13 oz. He out grew the bat and I decided to go with a COMbat based on the success my oldest son had with the B4. After a brief break-in period of 100-150 hits off the tee and soft toss, his first hit with the bat was a frozen rope into the mid outfield. With his Reflex he would barely make it to the outfield grass. Now his confidence is soaring and at an all time high. Thank you COMbat. (Posted on 1/22/14)
