The Combat/Easton Maxum is legendary. It got its first run from Combat, a now-defunct company absorbed by Easton. (Which was then absorbed by Rawlings). The Maxum has a tradition as a single-piece composite bat with a massive barrel and light swing weight. Those who love it absolutely love it. Over the years it has come in many sizes and leagues. Our ratings of the bats are below.

Easton/Combat Maxum Reviews

2021 Easton Maxum Ultra

$399.95
(8.9)

We got exit speeds and swing weights in preparation for our 2021 Easton Maxum Ultra review. In short, it’s a huge barrel with a lighter swing and our favorite feeling single piece bat on the market. Easton improved on the 2021 by adding a bit more mass in the barrel than the 2020.

2020 Easton Maxum 360

$399.95
()

Surprising. Impressive. Easily the biggest surprise of all 2020 Baseball bats is Easton’s new Maxum. It replicates the old Combat Maxum well with a huge barrel. The ultra-light swing in BBCOR and its outstanding exit speed make it one the best BBCOR bats for 2020. The USSSA versions of the bat are no joke either and should put Dirty South Bats on its heels a bit. Huge barrels and light swings go a long way in the youth space, and the Maxum is a great pace changer from the overdone two-piece composites in the market.
