Over the last couple weeks Mattingly Sports was giving away 20 bats to celebrate reaching 20,000 fans on Facebook. Out of all the winners we had 2 entries that came from the JustBats Facebook! Congrats to Jim Frey and Julie Pendegraft for winning. Hope you both enjoy your bats and send us a photo if you can.
Avarice: noun: insatiable greed for riches; inordinate, miserly desire to gain and hoard wealth.
If you have an insatiable greed for screaming liners and sky scraping home runs then this is the bat for you. This bat was designed for the player that desires to gain and hoard stats that other softball players dream of.
COMbat’s new Avarice 98 is a 1 piece full composite bat that uses technology to deliver optimum performance to you. Their Nanocomp technology on the inside of the bat insures that this will be one of the hottest ASA bats on the field. Their Anisotropic Composite Weave (may sound confusing) will allow you to put more swings on your bat than anyone else on your team without fear of breaking it.
COMbat has also weighted this bat to have maximum performance. This means that it will feel better than any other softball bat on the market while you’re standing at the plate.
If you’re a USSSA player, there is also a USSSA version of this bat. If you want to know how it performs, just check out the video.

If you’ve had a conversation over the past 5 years about the hottest bats in baseball or softball, you’ve likely talked about the DeMarini “CF” bats. Starting with the CF3 that was first released in 2007, these bats have left a permanent mark on the sport. After players with a CF4 spent the past two seasons dominating their competition, it was time for DeMarini to up their standards even further. This year, the release of the CF5 was met with acclaim and skepticism alike. There were those that just knew that this bat would be even better than the last, and then there were those that were convinced that there was no way a bat could get hotter than the 2011 CF4. The latter was in for a surprise.
Science. That’s what makes the new CF5 great. DeMarini’s new TR3 Strut Composite mimics the structure of crystals which are one of the strongest and most stable compounds on earth. The triangular formations found inside the barrel create a fixed ratio of sides and angles to create unwavering stability. This concept allows the CF5 to be one of the lightest and strongest bats DeMarini has ever created… with the biggest sweet spot known to man. Because of the strength of these bats, there will be a break-in period of a few hundred swings before it reaches its full potential, so don’t get discouraged. This is actually one of the best things about the CF5, it keeps getting hotter the longer you use it, yet it is still resilient enough to maintain its strength. It doesn’t matter what level of baseball or fastpitch softball you play, there is a new DeMarini CF5 just waiting for you to experience its awesome power.
The New Marucci Black. Pre-Book coming soon.
Beware of the Black
Hey guys, here’s a quick video on how to re-wrap a bat handle. It’s not too difficult of a process, but we figured maybe you could use a little help. Or hey, if you don’t wanna try and fix up the handle on your old bat, head on over to JustBats.com and grab a new one!
The 2013 USSSA Stamped Avarice from Combat is everything you’ve come to know from Combat plus more. Our seamless technology makes our sweet spot bigger than others as well as hot out of the wrapper and game ready in very few to no swings. Combat’s Anisotropic and Blended fiber technologies allow for the greatest trampoline effect in the barrel and yet provide stiffness in the handle to allow the maximum energy transfer to the ball. Our new sleek paint job and end cap as well as performance will make you stand out in the crowd. This bat is designed for the rec player all the way up to the Major level player. The Avarice optimal swing weight makes a 300ft fence a lot closer!!!
