What Long Haul Bomber Champion and Team DeMarini member Chris Larsen wants, he gets.

Power, speed, durability and American made are a few adjectives to use when describing the 2014 Rawlings Mach. New technology from Rawlings, combined with a two-piece fully composite design give you a high-performing bat to take your game to the next level. Lets take a closer look at the technology featured in the 2014 Rawlings Mach that resulted from countless hours of research and development.
Max CFD Technology
The new Max CFD Technology maximizes the carbon fiber density of the bat. Simply put, Rawlings has added more carbon fiber to the Mach and minimized the amount of resin. This creates a bat that will perform better, last longer and retain its pop better over time.
Barrel Flex Technology
Barrel Flex is another term for, “trampoline effect.” This describes the amount the barrel flexes when contact is made with the ball. The more barrel flex, the greater the bat will perform. Rawlings’ new Barrel Flex Technology gives the 2014 Mach 55% more barrel flex than the next closest competitor!
Flex Tuned Handle
The handle of the Mach is Flex Tuned, giving it increased flex from previous models. The Flex Tuned Handle creates a whip action once you start your swing. The whip action results in an increase of bat speed and bat control allowing you to generate more power at the plate.
The Vexxum is no longer the little brother to the Voodoo; it’s all grown up and ready to mash! It features an X10 Alloy barrel construction that has been fine-tuned and shaped to have the thinnest barrel wall possible. A thinner barrel keeps the weight down and allows DeMarini to expand the Vexxum’s sweet spot for increased performance. The handle is made of C6 composite which uses a wide-weave pattern to create an incredible trampoline effect and absorbs vibration. The Vexxum is available in a -12 Youth model and -5 and -10 Senior League models.
Hitters looking for a BBCOR option are in for a real treat with the all new Vexxum NVS. By employing a New Velocity System (NVS) barrel design, the NVS is now the lightest swinging alloy-barreled bat in the DeMarini lineup.The NVS has all the design features of the regular Vexxum with the addition of the new NVS barrel technology. The NVS design combines power and speed together by letting geometry do the work. The incredibly lightweight barrel has an explosive sweet spot that runs the length of the barrel. This creates a barrel with a low swing weight and powerful performance.

May 28th, 2012. Kent, WA – The Lady Tigers from Louisiana State University are on their way to one of the greatest NCAA events of the year; the Woman’s Softball College World Series in Oklahoma City where they will face the top-ranked Cal Golden Bears in their opening game. LSU defeated Missouri 3-1 Sunday night to cement their place in the final.
LSU coach Beth Torina could not have asked for a better first season with the team. The Tigers are peaking at the right time and are ready for this next hurdle. The goal from day one was to make the postseason and that is just what they have done. “There is trust in each other and in the coaching staff and it’s really paying off,” added some of the LSU players..
Against Missouri in the decisive third game, the turning point came in the bottom of the third – down 1-0, the Tigers came up with a bases-loaded double that plated three runs and LSU never looked back.
Coach Torina wasn’t the only one supporting her team all season – LSU’s equipment supplier, Combat Sports has also been rooting for the softball team since before the season began. Early on, coach Torina and Combat’s engineers sat down to create the Avaritia. It is Combat’s first two-piece fast-pitch bat and has been flying off the shelves since it was released in November.
LSU’s line-up of North American-made Combat Avaritia bats were seen during the team’s season and will be featured nation-wide throughout the WCWS – further promoting Combat’s passion for the game and philosophy of “for players, by players.”
Combat’s staff sends their best to the LSU Tigers and remind them that there’s a little bit of extra passion built into each and every one of their bats.
History and Background of Easton:
As the industry leader for over 30 years, Easton Baseball/Softball has continued to raise the bar with innovation, originality and ingenuity. It began in 1969, when Easton produced the first true aluminum bat, and has continued throughout the past three decades with virtually all significant industry “firsts” having been pioneered by Easton: first CU31 bat; first C405 bat; first titanium bat; first Carbon Core bat; first Scandium bat; etc.
The trend continues today with bats such as the Tri-Shell and the ConneXion. The patented Tri-Shell design features a super elastic rubber sleeve sandwiched in between thin outer shells for unparalleled performance, feel, and durability.
The patented ConneXion design takes a separate handle and barrel piece and mechanically interlocks them using a ConneXion” elastomer piece for outstanding flex, feel, performance, and vibration reduction. In the spring of 2002, Easton introduced the Tri-Shell ConneXion, merging the technological advancements of the two bats into one.
The bats are just a part of Easton’s Baseball/Softball product stable. Easton carries a wide range of high-performance baseball and softball equipment including ball gloves and batting gloves, sport bags and other accessories. Each Eastonproduct is engineered with the player’s needs and specifications in mind to provide a competitive edge in the games of fastpitch and slow-pitch softball and adult, senior youth and youth baseball.
Of all aspects that have contributed to Easton’s success, none is as important as the research and development Easton engineers put into every product. Easton’s trademark of innovative research and development goes back to Doug’s initial experiments with aluminum and continues today in a variety of high performance materials.
Along with the many milestones Easton has set in the sporting goods industry, a little-known fact is that Easton engineered and produced the thermal shroud for the seismometer used on the first Apollo lunar landing. Jim Easton, Chairman, has always placed great importance on expanding into new markets. And today, Easton’s presence in the baseball/softball, hockey, and bike markets show its continued legacy of producing innovative, high performance products.
The Easton Sports Lab, located in Van Nuys, is one of the most unique testing facilities in the sporting goods industry. Originally established to study the parameters of Easton equipment, it has evolved into a lab that not only tests equipment performance, but human performance as well. The Sports Lab has become an invaluable tool with which Easton engineers continue to create superior products.
An example of their unique testing was proven when the Easton Sports Lab teamed up with tent manufacturer Sierra Designs to create sensors and integrated software to test a state-of-the-art tent design that is supported by Easton E9 tubing in the most extreme weather conditions. In actual mountain tests, with the wind blowing up to 96 mph, Sports Lab technicians were able to record the stress on the tubing to confirm its strength and durability.
At Easton, most of the engineers are also athletes in the sport in which they innovate and design product based on their own experience. The two-piece aluminum Easton hockey stick, for example, was developed by an engineer with a passion for hockey. He developed a design that would in time become the number one hockey stick in the National Hockey League.
