Marucci CAT9 Connect -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBCC98GS
This CAT9 Connect features a fresh new cosmetic look that will get USSSA players pumped to swing it!
The CAT9 Connect takes things up a notch when compared to the standard CAT9. These Connect models take the awesome technology from the regular CAT9 and add it to a two-piece, hybrid frame.
The barrel will be composed of the AZR alloy material that undergoes a 3-part heat treatment to yield a material that delivers top results. However, the connection point is where the craziness begins with the CAT9 Connect. The AZR alloy barrel and the composite handle of this bat will be conjoined by the Outer Locking System (OLS). The OLS technology internally fuses the barrel and handle through a threading system. And then for extra security, the OLS external piece locks the two components from the outside. This creates one of the absolute stiffest connection points on the baseball bat market. If you want a two-piece bat that reduces vibration but feels like a stiff one-piece bat (when you connect with a baseball) grab a CAT9 Connect.
This drop 8 bat will be end-loaded in its feel. And it will indeed be a behemoth of a USSSA bat to whip through the zone. Because of that, we would probably recommend it only to truly advanced power hitters in the 11-13-year-old age range (Be sure to note that within the 13U Division of USSSA Baseball, at least a drop 8 size of bat is required for use).
In the last decade, Marucci has come on strong and established itself as a true force within the baseball bat market. An integral part of becoming that force is their care for customers. To exemplify that care, they extend a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty period on this bat. If you purchase the bat from JustBats and a warranty issue arises within 12 months of the purchase date, please let the JustBats Bat Experts know. The Experts are trained in product and warranty knowledge. They will be able to get you the info that you need to initiate a warranty replacement process with Marucci.
