Ever since Rawlings released one of the first BBCOR bats on the market, they've been working hard to perfect the science behind creating the best BBCOR bat possible. The Rawlings VELO combines technology, balance, and low M.O.I. to help you generate ULTIMATE swing VELOcity! This begins with the VELO's Comp-Lite End Cap that is fused to the alloy barrel using Bi/fusion Technology. This composite end cap creates a lighter and more balanced feel at the end of the bat to increase swing speeds and lower M.O.I. It has been shown through testing that a 50-100 M.O.I. change can result in a noticeable increase in bat speed. The Rawlings VELO BBCOR is AT LEAST 200 M.O.I. BETTER than any competitor in a similar price range! Beyond just increasing swing speeds, the Rawlings VELO is a well-built piece of equipment. It features a one-piece design crafted from Rawlings' 5150 Alloy that has unmatched durability and trampoline effect. As a result of precision manufacturing 5150 Alloy bats are consistently hotter than other leading alloy bats and perform at the maximum level allowable by today's standards. Precision Optimized Performance (pOp) Technology is applied to the VELO to isolate extra weight into smaller regions on the barrel to further increase bat speed and eliminate the need for annoying rings found inside some BBCOR bats. Rawlings: The Mark of a Pro! The VELO is BBCOR Certified and approved for high school and collegiate play.

Initially loved the bats balance and lightweight feel, I was a huge fan of the bat until it cracked where the molded end cap met the aluminum. I figured it was just a rare defect and had the bat replaced, about 3 weeks later the same thing happened in the exact same spot. I've many Easton S series bats and have never had these issues.

The guy who left the first review is right. I wouldn't swing another BBCOR bat. Its so balanced that it makes it feel so light. (Posted on 12/10/13)
This bat offers a unique feel by isolating extra weight to a smaller region of the bat, leading to a faster swing speed. Incredibly balanced. Wouldn't swing any other bat in the world. (Posted on 12/6/13)
