Raptor USA Baseball® Bat (-8) is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Bat bent after 3 games. Disappointing as had a Raptor bat in a younger age group and was great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Maybe it was just a bad bat Bought this bat for fall baseball season in September. Less than 8 weeks old and the bat is warped and cracked. My 12 year old is a decent hitter, but not so good he would have destroyed a bat in 7 weeks. Very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bent after 1 at bat I picked this bat up after my son's regular raptor bat bent after the first game of his 'LL 8-10 all-star tournament (that one lasted a few months before it bent. The new bat was used once on long hit and promptly bent. This is ridicilous

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Also Bent Same thing as described in other review. Worked fine for a few tournaments and then bent. Following up on warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Easily Bends My 12 year old went through 2 of these bats in one season. These bats bend to easily.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice... 2nd Rawlings bat that has bent this season for my 11U ball player. Thought the first was a fluke. Not happy with this product, nor Rawlings for telling me I have to pay to ship this back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bent Bought my son a new bat for the season. He picked this one out. After light use coach noticed the bat was bent. Tried to take it back to Dick's, they said I needed to take it up with the manufacturer...starting that process right now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst bat ever! Bent badly!!! Our township bought several of these bats this year for Little League to conform with the new USA baseball bat rule. After only two practices, I noticed this bat was bent badly. We didn't even get a chance to use it in a game. In case you are wondering, no, we don't have a pitching machine, nor do we use rubber or sand balls. This bat is simply junk. Since I coach the team, I will be forced to use my own money to by a replacement bat for the team. I will make sure that it is NOT a Rawlings. Buyer beware!
