Rated 4 out of 5 by 61 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy this bat! Worst bat ever! Vibrates like crazy. I could have spent the 70 bucks on a cheaper bat and would have gotten better results. Great color. my son picked it out. But ball does not come off the bat like a composite bat. It vibrates so much it made my son cry. It's probably only good for tee ball. April 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Price for a Composite Bat My 9 year old asked why his old bat made a "ping" sound when he hit the ball and all the other kids bats made a "crack" sound. After explaining to him that I couldn't afford to spend $300 on a composite bat that he was going to grow out of in a year, I found the Rawlings Plasma composite bat at Dick's Porting Goods for a quarter of the cost of the other big name composite bats. He loves everything about it - the color, the grip and especially the sound it makes plus he is ripping thwe cover off of the ball now thanks to the composite bat. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Youth Bat My 8 year old uses this for rec ball and travel ball and the results are incredible. My first thought was that the bat felt inferior when compared to the more expensive composite bats. However, the results have proven otherwise. Break in time was quick compared to composites like the Easton XL1. The action of the ball of the bat is fantastic when the batter hits the ball correctly. Also, you'll know when the player squares up on the ball because of the distinct sound of the ball off of the bat. At 17oz and a -12 drop this bat is light enough and balanced enough that younger players can get their hands quick through the hitting zone without any bat lag or dropping the barrel like other power bats, but still generate power like a -10 or -11 drop. Granted, no bat will turn a poor or mediocre player into a superstar. This bat won't turn a singles hitter into a home run hitter. But a bat like this in the hands of a youth player with good swing mechanics can make a big difference in transmitting power. I see too many players with good hitting fundamentals struggling because they made a poor choice when choosing their bat. I still question the long term durability of the bat, but for this price (and the discount I got the bat for when it was on sale) I'd be satisfied if it made it only through spring, summer, and fall ball this year. My son absolutely loves this bat. He's a good hitter that and has a powerful swing, but the action off this bat makes the ball really jump compared to good aircraft aluminum bats and even his Easton XL1. It's a "no brainer" to buy this bat, especially at this price. I'm already seeing my son's travel ball teammates try his bat or go out and buy their own. April 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Backup Bat My son made the All Star Team this season. He couldn't make the adjustments with the new coaches pitching. I bought this bat because of it's drop and he is used to composite bats. We had 4 games this week. He is making contact and getting his groove back. Each ball is traveling farther and farther.Does it perform like his other, more expensive bats? No. It did vibrate the first two games. I put a vibration stopper on it from another bat and it went away. The ball doesn't jump off the bat as much as his others, but he is getting decent to good hits.I would recommend this bat for contact hitters, and as a good backup.   May 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The WHOLE team The bat was such a HIT that my son's whole team ended up trying it. Those that were sized right for the bat liked it. June 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good bat for early season cool weather baseball Good bat for early cool weather baseball when using a composite bat isn't advised. Good sweet spot and nice grip. April 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product for the price If you are looking for a composite bat for a decent price, this is it. Unlike some of the more expensive composites it does not have a sting absorber so if they do not hit it well it will sting. For me, that is part of playing baseball. Other than that, my 8 year old son loves the look and feel of it. The -12 is perfect for his small size. April 11, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rawlings Plasma Youth Bas[t Great bat. -12 makes a noticeable difference from some other comparable bats. A bit more expensive but worth it. February 26, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great bat We bought this for our son who plays club ball. He was having trouble with his old bat. Thought we'd give this a try. We saw quuck results. His swing is alot better and faster. Glad we got it. January 28, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Light weight,quality product Brought product online for my son's birthday. The shipping was great. Online chat for customer service was user friendly and knowledgable. My son used the bat for his All-Star tournament game and he was amazed how light the bat is. Also the color is wonderful! July 1, 2014
