Pros:  This bat has a massive sweet spot and is very balanced which gives you swing speed and control. I have swung the cat 5,6 and 7 all throughout high school and travel ball and put a beating on all of them. The durability and pop in these bats is like no other. As a competitive player I have swung every bat in the book and can't seem to find anything better than the Marucci Cat series. If you're looking for a bat that is smooth, balanced and produces the pop and power you need, look no more. The Marucci Cat7 will not be beat.

Cons:  The grip is slick until you use it for a few games

Pros:  unreal pop. this bat has a much bigger barrel than the Cat 6 so if you happen to "jam" yourself a little you'll still get the barrel on the ball and this ball will fly. You'll love it

Cons:  it feels a little heavier than a Cat6 but its still balanced. its a slight difference but you'll get used to it and its not a bad thing

Pros:  First of all this is the 4th Marucci Bat my son has used. He used the cat Cat 5 squared, Cat 6 at -5, Cat 6 at -3 and Finally we got our hands on the Cat 7 and he didn't skip a beat. We've tried along the way a couple of composite bats, but He always comes back to the Cat7. The sweet long barrel just adds to the nice level swing he loves from the "Cats". You can see the balance and pop on plenty of his YouTube videos on Ed Hernandez channel. There are 5 of these now on our team. One other great thing is that they are easy to resale with plenty of pop for months in cool, hot or cold temperatures. Great all season!!!

Cons:  None what so ever.

Pros:  This bat has a ton of pop. I own the cat 6 and thought marucci could never make a better bat. They proved me wrong. The cat 7 is unbelievable. It has a ton of pop a long with a huge sweet spot. It's so balanced and smooth. I was impressed with the bat the second I picked it up, And I was sold on it after my first swing. When you square a ball up perfectly it sounds beautiful. I would definitely recommend this bat to anyone in the market looking to hit dingers!

Cons:  The only con I can think of is that marucci is going to have a tough time making a better bat than the cat 7!

Pros:  The Cat 7 is the overall best bat I have owned. It has tremendous pop, an extremely balanced feel, and sounds great when you hit it. Not to mention that the grip is the best in the game, hands down. Even when you don't barrel the ball up or "just miss" the ball still seems to jump off the bat better than others. The Cat 7 is a great bat and I would highly recommend it over any others, especially if you like the feel of a one piece aluminum.

Cons:   Nothing

Pros:  Wow! Just wow! This bat has a humongous barrel and zero vibration. And i mean zero vibration. I got jammed really bad and didn't feel a thing and still hit it hard. Also, this bat is super light. The -3 version feels like a -5. This is the best bbcor bat ever!

Cons:  Grip is amazing until you start sweating. Once you start to sweat the grip feels like soap all over it but batting gloves or pine tar will do the trick.

Pros:  I love my parents for getting me this bat it has tons of pop, has great grip, no sting at all, and also looks great, the cat 7 is very well balanced and feels great in the hands. The ball comes off this bat like a rocket and you feel nothing when the ball hits the sweet spot. Best bat i've used to this day!!!!

Cons:  nothing

Pros:  This bat has some insane pop I have been using it for a little over two weeks and it is just fantastic, this bat highly outclasses many other BBCOR bats including the MAKO and CF8. The huge sweet spot helps make it to where anytime you hit the ball it will fly, if you had the cat 6 or are new to the CAT series and want a cheap bat that has some serious pop and no vibration this bat is a perfect for you!

Cons:  The grip is slippery but pine tar/batting gloves fix the problem with ease.

Pros:  the balance, pop, and even the grip is perfect on this bat. Nice size barrel but not oversized, reminds me of a throw back style from the past. It also has A little more ping than the 6 offers if you're in to that. Also incredible graphics and finish.

Cons:  handle just a little larger than most bats.

Pros:  the pop on this bat is Amazing, best i have ever used! the vibration on thr bat is also best i have ever used! if i hit on the inside or end it dont hurt at all. the wait distrubution is Amazing, it feels really light but at the same time has enough weight on the barrel / end of the bat that you need. the bat last very long, ( still using it of corse. ) it gets no scratches on it like Eastons will. i know some say the grip nesds batting gloves or it gets slippy when your hands get swetty, i hace not experianced that. i like the grip that comes with it better than lizard skin. nothing against lizard skin, i really like lizard skin grip tape but this is better. Don't get a Easton, or a Demarini, or a Louisville slugger, or anything else! get a Marruci cat 7!!!! if i had to describe this bag in one word it would be AMAZING.

Cons:  absolutly nothing

Pros:  Great Balance, My 6'1", 160# son stepped up from a 32/29 hybrid to this one in a 33/30 configuration and says they feel the same, despite the extra weight. They may feel the same, but the results are night and day. He was crushing the Cat7. When I started hitting outfield flies to him, I didn't need nearly the effort and sent a couple to the fence by mistake. The handle has a perfect taper to the knob.

Cons:  Can emit a very loud ping when you crush a ball.

Pros:  I have been using this bat in the cages and wow it is one monster. This bat has a all new feel to it with a more level swing and intense bat speed through the zone. I have used Mako's for the past 2 years but i decided to go outside the box and try this new Cat 7 and it was a great change it is just as strong and well built as any Mako and even from a change from composite to all alloy the bat still performs as well as any other composite bat. Overall great all round bat.

Cons:  Vibration on the handle but that is normal for any alloy bat bat especially one piece. Grip is ok but might wear down after a while.

Pros:  In the 12 years my son has played, I have never seen the ball come off the bat like this. It definitely decreases the fielders range. It does seem to have a huge sweet spot. He has cleared the fence a few times in BP. Can't wait for the games to start.

Cons:  My son doesn't wear gloves and the grip seems to get slick. We replaced it with a lizard skin.

Pros:  This bat has a huge sweet spot. This bat can send the ball. over the fence. It makes a great ping sound. Personally it is a good idea to put lizard skin on all bats. I put it on this bat instead of the regular grip. You cannot feel the vibration.

Pros:  I have the standard CAT7 and it is truly the best bat I have ever owned. First of all, it is a gogreous bat while still sticking to the traditional CAT series format. Secondly, the overall feel of the CAT7 is amazing and just feels right. Marucci really hit the nail on the head with the new CAT7.

Cons:  My only complaint about this bat is that when you hit the ball, it makes a loud and high-pitched pinging noise. But, it is easy to get past.

My son is 13 but on the smaller side. He has a DeMarini Voodoo End loaded 30" 27 oz, but it's too much to swing. Looking for a BBCOR bat for smaller players. Would the CAT 7 be the best bat for smaller players?

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 is going to be considerably easier to swing than the end loaded Voodoo Insane due to its well balanced design . It would be a good option for smaller players.

What is the difference between the Marucci Cat 7 and the Easton White out? Also which bat has a larger barrel?

The biggest difference is that the Easton and Marucci use different alloy technology. Marucci uses their AZ4X alloy, while the Easton uses their HMX alloy tech. The barrel lengths should be fairly similar.

My son is 13 years old and 5'10" and roughly 140 pounds. He currently swings with a 33" drop 5 bat and has been asking for another bat. I want to get him a bat that he can use for a year or two, as he will be starting high school in the fall. What would be your recommendations, as he has another 2-4 more years of growing to do and will probably hit a height of 6' in the next year or so. He is a contact hitter but I see the potential to be a power hitter as well.

Based on what you told us and his height and weight we would recommend the 32"/29 ounce 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) as a great option for years to come.

How does this bat compare to the 2016 Rawlings VELO, the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed and the 2017 Rawlings 5150?

My son is about 5'6" and 14 years old. Would you recommend a 31"/28 oz or 32"/29 oz size of the CAT 7?

For most 14 year olds, we suggest a 32" BBCOR bat. Because of that, I would probably recommend looking to the 32"/29 oz size of this 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7). Even if it is a little large for your son, he can definitely grow into that size with a little time.

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 and the Rawlings VELO are both great bats that have shown both durability and pop measures that are favorable for those hitters that are using the bats. Pop is one of personal opinion though and it would be tough to prove which one of these bats would be better with regards to pop.

Which bat has more pop: (CAT 6 or CAT 7)?

I would say that this 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) will probably have a little more performance to it. The reason I say this is because this CAT 7 features new AZ4X Alloy that is stronger and has a higher response rate. As well, the sweet spot on this CAT 7 is designed to be nearly twice as big as the sweet spot on the CAT 6.

Does this bat have the USSSA stamp? Our 15 yr old is in need of a bat for both USSSA as well as high school baseball. He is 5'4" tall, about 120 lbs and a contact hitter. Would this be a bat you would recommend?

The standards for USSSA and BBCOR are different, so you actually won't find a bat that is 1.15 BPF certified for USSSA and allowed for high school play. Most USSSA leagues still allow BBCOR bats however, as the BBCOR standard is lower than USSSA's, but you will have to check with your league rules to be sure. The Marucci Cat 7 is a very good performing BBCOR model, however, and one of the best performers this year.

If my son is 5'9" tall, weighs 150 lbs and has swung a 32" last year. wWhat size would you recommend?

We would recommend either staying with the 32" length, or possibly going up 1" and using a 33" model. What you go with depends on comfort, how far he stands from the plate, strength, and other variables.

My son is 11 years old and about 4'11" and 125 lbs. He wants the CAT 7 big barrel version. Is 2 5/8" considered a "big barrel"? Which CAT 7 do you recommend?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting a bat in the 30" length. The 2 5/8" barrel is typically referred to as a big barrel. I would recommend against getting this 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) as the -3 length-to-weight ratio will be a little large for use by your player. The CAT 7 I would suggest for you is the MSBYC78 which can be bought in the 30"/22 oz size and is meant for use with kid pitch baseball. That bat would be fine to get as long as the 22 oz weight is okay for him to use.

As for the difference between the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 and the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC7 , the new Connect bat will be a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle.

I'm a power hitter who hits a lot of doubles and triples to the wall. This year I'm trying to hit HRs. What bat will be best for me but I don't want to bat to be too heavy; a little end load is okay.

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 is a great bat to consider for someone looking to add power to their game. The one-piece alloy design means this bat will be stiff on impact and the new AZ4X alloy will give this bat more durability as well as an increased sweet spot when compared to the CAT 6.

Based upon his height and weight at this current time, my general recommendation would be to get this 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) in the 31" length as long as you feel that the 28 oz weight will be beneficial for him. However, if you want something that can be used more long term, the 32" size would be best.

I had the Cat 6 last year and loved it but I used the MAKO for fall ball and hit amazing with it. Which one should I choose?

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) and the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17MK) are going to be very good options. The Cat 7 is going to be much cheaper through, and the Cat series has been one of the highest rated series of bats that we have ever had. With the new AZ4X Alloy and a Sweet Spot that is twice as long as the Cat 6 that you liked, I would go with the Cat 7. It is a good update over the Cat 6 which was already a great bat.

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) is going to perform a little bit more highly than the Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR (MCBC614). This is due to the AZ4X Alloy used in the CAT 7. It is going to be stronger and more responsive than the aluminum used in the CAT 6. The barrel has also been redesigned on the CAT 7 and is going to have a much larger sweet spot.

All three are going to be very good options. Currently the DeMarini CF8 is not available and it has been sold out for a decent amount of time. The Easton Z Core and the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 are going to be very similar bats. They are both going to be really good options.

Would you recommend the Cat 7 or the LS Prime 917?

This 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) will come with a one-piece, all-alloy build to it which will result in a balanced swing weight on the bat. The Prime 917 will differ as it has a two-piece design and an all-composite build. As well, the Prime 917 will have a pretty balanced feel to it. Both bats could be used by any style of hitter. The big difference between the two bats will come from the feel the bats produce at contact with the ball. This Cat 7 provides a more stiff feel at contact while the Prime 916 will feature more flex. When deciding on a bat, you'll need to decide on the feel that your prefer at contact with the ball.

I got the Marucci CAT 5 when it first came out and it had pop but it wasn't durable at all. I got tons of dents in it and the end cap came off and I only had it for a month. I haven't gotten a Marucci bat since that. The reviews are better on the newer Marucci bats. If I get this bat will it be more durable than the past Marucci bats?

The Marucci Cat Series has been one of our best rated bats ever, with performance and durability. If you take a look at the Cat 6 BBCOR reviews it has 85 reviews with an overall average 5 star rating. It sounds like you probably just had some bad luck with your old Cat 5. I would highly recommend the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7.

How would this bat compare to the Easton Z-core Whiteout? Which would be more balanced and that sort of thing?

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 and the 2017 Easton Z-CORE SPEED Limited Whiteout BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZSW are going to be very balanced bats. They are going to be really comparable and the difference is going to be so minuscule that it really is going to come down to player preference.

Is the CAT 6 or CAT 7 better?

It is too early to tell yet on which is better but with the new advancements made in barrel technology on the CAT 7, with the optimized barrel design and new AZ$X alloy, one would tend to believe the new CAT 7 will quickly replace the popularity of the CAT 6.

(1) I am 13 years old, 5'6" and about 130 lbs. I have been swinging my teammate's 25 ounce bat. I want to get a BBCOR bat and swing it for a year to get ready for high school ball. Would the 31"/28 oz size be a good option for me? (2) Is the bat end-loaded or is the weight evenly distributed?

(1) Based upon your height and weight, our general recommendation would be to get this 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) in the 31" length. If you can handle the 28 oz weight of the 31" option of this CAT 7, then I would recommend that size. (2) This CAT 7 is going to come with a evenly distributed swing weight.

Would you recommend this for my son's first BBCOR bat?

This 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC7) is the 2017 model of the CAT 6. That CAT 6 was a great bat and this CAT 7 will feature the same balanced swing weight and one-piece design (plus upgrades from that CAT 6). Overall, I think this CAT 7 would be a great option to get for a player's first BBCOR bat.

Are there any rings or governors inside the CAT 7?

Is the CAT 7 more for a power hitter or contact hitter?

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 may be used by both power and contact hitters. The stiffer flex of the one-piece alloy design will be beneficial for power hitters while the balanced design with lower M.O.I will be a good fit for contact hitters.

Is the CAT 7 balanced or end-loaded?

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 is a precision balanced one-piece alloy design with a lower M.O.I.

I wanted a CAT 6 a couple of months ago and then I heard that the CAT 7 was coming out very soon, so I decided to wait. Be honest, is there really a difference between the CAT 6 and the CAT 7? If so, what differences are there so I can make my decision?

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 is constructed from Marucci's newest AZ4X alloy, which allowed Marucci to engineer a larger barrel and a sweet spot twice as large as the CAT 6 using 7 variable wall thicknesses with no internal rings. The CAT 7 also features the updated and finely tuned AV2 anti-vibration knob helping to absorb harsh sting from miss-hits.

Is there a point of spending the 50 dollars to get the CAT 7 or should I just get the CAT 6 for cheaper?

The Marucci CAT 6 was and still is a very good BBCOR bat to consider. As for spending additional funds to get the new 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7, there are some new features with this bat that would make one believe that it will have more pop and durability than the CAT6; of course only time will tell if this is accurate or not.

How much better do you think the CAT 7 is compared to the CAT 6? Do you think the CAT 6 or CAT 7 is better then the Omaha 2016?

I think that the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 is going to be very comparable to the Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC614 but due to the new aluminum that they use it should be more responsive. I think all three are very good bats and picking the right one has a lot to do with personal preference because they are all going to be very similar. The Maruccis do have a little be of an advantage in the reviews from JustBats.com customers.

Description for 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7
New for 2017! This 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 is similar to that of the CAT 5 and CAT 6, only double the power! You are really going to scare some people if you come to the plate with this bat. Marucci has done a fantastic job of upping the ante from year to year and improving on an already masterful design. One of the main differences from last years CAT 6 to this CAT 7 is the new and improved AZ4X Alloy that dramatically improves durability and strength. Additionally, the optimized barrel design is more responsive and offers a sweet spot that is twice as large in comparison to the CAT 6. Through Marucci's engineer's extensive research and consultation with their player advisory board made up of big leaguers, they determined that one of the most common complaints among amateur baseball players is vibration in the hands. The brand-new AV2 Knob, also known as the second generation anti-vibration knob, offers a much better feel and remarkably less vibrational feedback in players' hands. Furthermore, the proven ring-free barrel technology continues to produce unmatched performance with absolutely no 'dead' spots. The combination of these new features results in a traditional, one-piece, all alloy, best balanced, most forgiving, sweetest feeling, and hardest hitting bat available.

The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 features a -3 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, and the BBCOR certification which makes it legal for play at the high school and collegiate level. Also, Marucci is backing this monster of a bat with a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. Marucci: Honor The Game! Be the talk of the town and make sure to get your own CAT 7 today with fast, free shipping.
