2015 Marucci CAT 6

Features:

  • AZ3000 is the best metal for aluminum bats currently on the market today. It stands up to heavy hitting with ease, filling a player’s two core requirements in a bat: performance and durability.
  • One-piece construction ensures that, even though the bat is metal, it has the same consistency as a traditional wooden bat.
  • Ergonomic knob offers superior control over every swing.
  • Tapered handle improves balanced feel and offers excellent grip.
  • Continued balance through the barrel creates a larger sweet spot for perfect hits.
  • The wall thickness is carefully optimized to allow the best swing speeds without compromising durability.
  • Ring-free design means your bat’s construction won’t limit the performance of your swing.
  • Ant-vibration technology takes the sting out of the swing by absorbing harsh vibrations from contact.

Pros:

  • The bat did so well during its first season professional testers suggested no changes for the 2016 model.
  • One-piece construction offers a similar feel and consistency as a traditional bat.
  • Ant-vibration technology takes away the sting of contact.
  • Massive sweet spot.
  • Knob and handle design provide superb balance and control.
  • Wall thickness allows for maximum speed with every swing.

Cons:

  • Professional quality bat means it comes with a professional price tag. Not all players can afford this bat.
  • Metal bats are not allowed in actual competition in the Big Leagues and some smaller leagues.

  • One of the lightest bats in its class, which means your swing is uninhibited by excess weight, making for a more powerful swing.
  • Long barrel makes for an enlarged sweet spot.
  • Ring-free design ensures the construction of your bat does not hinder the performance of every contact and reduces vibration.
  • Patented technology allows Marucci to combine aluminum and composite materials, making for an incomparably light bat in its class.

Pros:

  • Two-piece design that feels like a one-piece makes the bat a versatile option for players who prefer honest feedback from contact.
