The team at COMBAT said that "something big" was in the works. But the bat that emerged has pushed through the boundaries of what was even considered possible with a composite bat design! Introducing: the new COMBAT MAXUM! COMBAT has made a name for themselves in the bat industry by consistently delivering bats that offer an extreme combination of a light swing weight and HUGE sweet spot, but the MAXUM takes the crown in both categories. This COMBAT MAXUM -12 Youth Baseball Bat: MAXYB112 provides not only the largest sweet spot in the industry offered in a Youth (2 1/4") model, but it totes the lightest swing weight (by a full ounce) of any COMBAT Youth model ever! These bats are one-piece composite designs created through advanced Precision Molding Technology (PMT). Unlike typical composite bats that are created by rolling/overlapping layers of material, the PMT process injects liquid resin into seamless high-quality carbon sleeves under extreme pressure. The result is an ultra-consistent product that eliminates seams/weak points that you get with the traditional process. That means that players can rest-assured that the MAXUM will deliver perfectly tuned performance over a longer lifespan. The MAXYB112 carries the USSSA BPF 1.15 Performance Certification mark on its taper and is approved for play in Little League Baseball, USSSA, Dixie, Pony, AABC, and Babe Ruth.

Did a lot of research and came down to Combat vs. Mako. Fortunately we had friends with each bat so both my son and I got to try. Will say the Mako, when hit true, provides more pop. The ball explodes off the Combat too, but both my son and I did hit the ball slightly harder and farther when squaring up on the Mako. But when you mishit on the Mako, sometimes the ball just dies. (Hope I am explaining that ok, anyone who has used or seen a Mako in action will understand!)
The Combat has a HUGE sweet spot, so not only does ball never seem to die off it, but seem to get more consistent solid hits than the Mako. We also felt the Mako was top heavy whereas the Combat just feels light. We were able to get a heavier bat as the balance is seemingly just perfect. My son definitely had more bat speed on the Combat. I also like the one-piece design on the Combat. You still get that negative reinforcement when you mishit, on Mako you do not (two-piece design). My son is not a power guy, so fine with the slightly less pop on the Combat as squared-up line drives absolutely explode off the bat too.
The kicker in the decision for Combat was then the balance (lighter feeling bat), the negative reinforcement, and really truer hits from the nice sized sweet spot.
