2019 Threat USA Baseball® Bat (-12)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Feel My 8 year old son love the new Threat. He has taken it to BP twice and has had one game so far this season. When you first swung it, stated that he felt is was too long, but after some good tee work and a single and a double(RBI), he was started to find is groove. he also mentioned that it didn't vibrate like his older bat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight, big pop Bought for 10yo son coming out of 9u to give him edge facing faster pitching for all stars. He loves it, feels light without compromising pop. Composite Drop 12 gives him better bat control and speed. Consistent base hits to OF. Big win for USA bats. Had Rawlings 5150 drop 10 USA was great bat, but split second slower getting around. Hard pressed to find better value, at $149 hangs with the $200-$300 bats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The kid likes it! I’m a bat junkie. I have bought many a bat for my three sons with varying prices. We were partial to the Combat line of products but with the USA lineup of bats there were not any -12/-13 bats available. The Threat reminds me of the Combat bats. Typical balanced swing weight with the typical sound of a one piece composite bat. My 9 yo loves his bat. No problems but understand the problems with composite bats. If Rawlings follows suit with more USA bats at -12 they will have a good following.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Balance and Pop I bought this bat for my son who has previously been using a rawlings prodigy 27' 16 oz and a rawlings 5150 27" 17 oz. I wanted to get him a 28" but didn't want to compromise bat speed. When I saw the threat and the -12 drop I wanted to give it a try but, I wasn't sure about the pop being as it is a one piece composite. The one piece composite I've seen from other manufactures were not impressive. We got the bat yesterday and I helped him break it in with about 200 swings off the tee. I could immediately feel great balance and pop. It doesn't make the ping sound like the 5150 but, the ball jumped off the bat. It has a real good sound. It's a much better sound than the Easton Ghost composite. I'm excited to see how he likes the bat once we go live in the cage this week but, his bat speed jumping to a 28" from a 27" didn't miss a beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful well balanced composite bat ! Received the Rawlings Threat -12 USA bat recently for my 9 year old son. Bought a 29" bat, put it on the scale and it weighed 18.2 ounces so only 1.2 ounces over which is great in comparison to others given that it should weigh 17 ounces before the end cap and grip are added. Son used it in game last night and loves it. He made solid contact in each at bat and the ball pooped off the bat well versus his Rawlings 5150. I swung it myself and was impressed with the balance/weight of it for a USA bat. In summary, a great 100% composite bat at under $150 which no other bat maker is coming close to especially at the price point. It will compete with any $300 bat out there in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome We bought this bat for our 8 year old and so far he loves it. We've hit over 350 balls off of the tee etc to break it in and he keeps saying how good it feels! Much more pop and great sound compared to our 3 month old Easton Omen!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 27/15 Bought for my 6 year old. He plays 8u. Peeled off the wrapper and undoubtedly the hottest bat in the dugout. It puts most $300 bats to shame. Very impressed, so far.
