We really struggled last year finding a good bat for him. The 26" -13 (T-Ball) bats seemed a little short, but with the weight issues we all experienced last year, a 27" -12 was too heavy. With a 2 1/2" barrel, this bat seems to fit perfectly in the space that was created when we were forced to transition to the USA Bats.
We purchased both a 27" and 28". He said the 27" feels better, and his swing looks better, so the 28" may be just a bit too long/heavy for him right now. He may grow into the 28", but when he does, we're not sure if we want to be in the -13 space so we'll probably end up returning the 28" and figure out what to do when he gets bigger.
I think this would be a perfect bat for a younger/smaller child in coach pitch or even first year in LL Minors. Amazing bat for kids transitioning from tee ball to coach pitch..
These new USA Approved bats are consistently heavier than advertised. This is really an 18oz bat. I got the 30 inch for my 9 year old who is 4' 9" 80 lbs. He is currently playing 11u ball and this gives him the ability to get some real bat speed against the bigger kids. Great sweet spot, nice pop, and great feel when swinging. Well balanced and great feel I??m a Coach for a 8u coach pitch team. We were supposed to switch to USA bat rule just like many other leagues, however last minute decision or enough parent and coach complaints cause the league to allow USSSA bats. I have now bought a 28/18 solo 618, 31/20 solo 619. Both bats are great bats, limited sting even on miss hits. We have 3 Marucci bats on the team. What we have found is the 619 if hit on the barrel will out perform a cat 7. Our discovery over hundreds of cuts in the cages, tees, live; in comparison to the 618, s450, s550, 518, 5150, ??19 voodoo 1, cat 7 (x2) is that it has the better bat. I will list the bats we have in order from best to worst.
1. 619 2. Cat 7 3. Voodoo 1 4. 618
5. 5150 6. 518 7. S550 8. S450. All but the cat 7 are USA bats and each one has its pros and cons. However the 619 is a solid bat that is comfortable in our players hands. Shipping was super fast. Great bat for kids playing coach pitch or machine pitch. Great for that 5 to 7 age group were a drop 10 is still a tad bit to heavy for majority of 7 year olds. Great balance but for what I have seen looks like the drop 11 version of this bat has a little more pop to me Initially tried demarini uprising and voodoo for 9yo... he prefers the solo swing 28 inch and swings it much faster, makes more contacts, no sting (with gloves) even on all but the obviously worst batting cage machine hits no sting. I thought a slightly heavier bat like the omaha or solo might yield longer hits but he still prefers this solo spd. lightest swing weight on 28" bat using golf fulcrum method
gave son (7 yrs 52" 60 lbs) the fastest swing speeds
durable hit everything from live bp to cages up to 50 mph no dents or cracks over 1,000's of swings
even the kids on the team who use 2 1/4" barrels swung this better. good banace, good pop, fast swing , comes in -13, minimal sting. we use 30/17 Hot out of the wrapper
Best hits of the season with the solo,
