2015 Combat Bats Review

After our review of the Portent G3 baseball bat a couple days back, we were reminded we’ve yet to put up Combat Bat Reviews on the other two 2015 performance¬†baseball bats from Canada: The 2015 Combat Wanted and the 2015 Combat Fray Hybrid.

Models Overview

The Wanted is a reprint of the 2014 Wanted from Combat which was well received as Combat’s first foray in the two piece bat market. The 2014 version was well balanced with a remarkable barrel size (which is par for the course with Combat) and has a great feel at contact.

General Recommendations

The combat barrel is has dual walls which are separated by a gap. This allows, through some specialized engineering, for two separate sweet spots. One toward the end cap and one toward the middle of the barrel.

Reviews By Model

Comparable Bats

On the plus side, however, the price point for a two piece hybrid is the lowest in the business, and the barrel (especially in the 2 1/4 barrel) appears as big as anyone we’ve seen for 2015. Those two shots may give you enough confidence¬†to take some hacks with the 2015 Fray Hybrid.

Pricing is here.

Previous Bats

Overall we find the bat easy to recommend for those who prefer two piece bats, are looking for a value purchase, like big barrels and smooth swings. The 2014 version had a few complaints on durability but it’s hard to tell if that is any different than other two piece bats on the market—we would guess it isn’t.


The other two piece bat in Combat’s 2015 line up is the Fray Hybrid. The Fray is a brand new line for 2015. This bat has the same ultra light composite handle as the Wanted, but with an alloy barrel. The ultra light composite handle allows for Combat to attach a very long barrel. Compared to other two piece hybrids the barrel is remarkably long.
