BEWARE- small barrel
This bat came to me looking very small. I thought it must be an illusion due to it being all black, and thinking that a 2 1/4" barrel is standard. Well... my son used it in a game, and every time he went to bat, I kept thinking it looked like a toothpick! I measured it... the barrel is 2" !!!!!! THIS IS NOT A STANDARD BARREL I called HQ4sports, and they were not helpful. They only gave me the # to Louisville Slugger and would not stand behind this "variation". I'm VERY disappointed. This is advertised as a 2 1/4" barrel- that's what it should be.
Proslight bat, but that's because it's a tiny barrel.
ConsThe barrel is much smaller than advertised. It is also shorter, but the barrel is a HUGE issue.

OK!!!! I bought this bat on Ebay from the east cost. I had blogged with some guy that said this bat was being used in his league and guys were dropping bombs. So I took a chance. The bat came to me brand new, LOOKS GREAT. I have about 60 cuts from the cage and about 20 game time cuts. and last night it opened up on me. The sweet spot got bigger and i hit super HOT line drives, almost hitting the pitcher in the head, it missed him by inches. I own a Combat Dan Smith (Players Edition)and i would compare this bat almost as good (RIGHT NOW). But the Combat is still better. I think this Omaha may be just as good once it opens up. It sounds great when you hit it on the sweet spot and towards the end of the bat. BUT, if you hit it off the handle, it has that "PING" sound, like an old school aluminum. I dont know about the durability yet, But its a solid hitter. NO LIE. I dont normally hit home runs, Im normally a line drive hitter, but I have hit several with my Combat. So i know the feel. ANDDDD I think i can be hitting 300+ ft jacks with this one too. I play in Big League Dreams, chino hills and west covina so you can judge distance because of the outfield wall.

Fit Guide

Bat Size Guide-Help Selecting Baseball and Fastpitch Bat Size
  • The bat size that best fits you will be one that is comfortable, easy to swing and allows you to produce the greatest bat speed and power.
  • To obtain your optimum bat  select a bat that is not too long/heavy or too short/light.
  • A bat too short won't provide maximum power or barrel length, while a bat too long will be too difficult to handle and will also slow bat speed reducing power.
  • First begin with selecting a length. If possible use the previous bat you swung to help establish a length. For example if you used a 30 in bat and now feel that you are ready to move on to a larger bat a 31 in could be the next step.
  • You can also use the chart below for the average bat lengths based on your height, weight and age.
  • The chart below is just a guide as each player's strength and bat speed differ.
  • While the chart below was primariy designed for baseball, we have found it works fairly well for fastpitch bat sizing too. For fasptitch, however, refer to only the player height and discregard the player weight. Also, see notes at the bottom for additional notes on fastpitch bat sizing.

Bat Sizing Chart

Selecting The Appropriate Bat Weight
  • The bat weight is equally as important as the length in selecting  the optimum bat size.
  • Bat weight differs greatly depending on the age range and is usually referred to as the "drop" when associated with the length and weight.
  • The drop is the difference between the length of the bat and the weight of the bat. For example if a bat is 30 in. long and weighs 20 oz. then the drop is 10. The larger the drop, the lighter the bat.
  • The average bat drop can best be broken down by age range.
Youth Bats (21/4 Inch barrel diameter)
  • Average - drop 12
  • Power Hitter - drop 10
Senior League "Big Barrel" Bats (25/8 to 23/4 Inch barrel Diameter)
  • For ages 12 and under, drop 10 is the average
  • Over age 12  range from -10oz to -5oz depending on the players strength and bat speed. 
  • *Check with your local league or organization to find out if there are any restrictions on barrel diameter or bat weight.
High School/College Bats
  • All high school or college bats are drop 3
  • Freshmen/Sophmore High School players: 31 and 32 ich are the most popular
  • Junior/Senior in High School players: 32 and 33 inch are the most popular
  • College Players:  33 is the most popular size.
Fastpitch Softball Bats
  • Age 13 and under, average drop - 11oz or 12oz.
  • Age 14 to 16, drop 10
  • Age 16 and up, Drop 8oz to 10oz. Drop 10 is still the most popular drop, but some  power hitters prefer a drop 9.
*Bat Weight is also a preference. There are some over 14 players that prefer and use lighter bats. This can vary depending on their strength or type of hitter they are (power vs slap hitter).Back to Top
