If you've ever dreamed about what it would be like to start ripping shots to all edges of the field and beyond, this is bat to own. The Mattingly Ripped fastpitch softball bat is the newest addition to this classic family of high performing bats. Made from Mattingly's MB5500 Atomic Alloy, the Ripped swings light and stays tough. The MB5500 Atomic Alloy is Mattingly's high-end alloy that blends an array of elements to create one of the hottest materials in the game! The Ripped employs Mattingly's increasingly popular Direct Power Transfer which maximizes energy return to the ball, giving players a noticeably more explosive reaction on contact! The Ripped also features Mattingly's patented V-Grip handle system. Developed by Yankee great Don Mattingly, the V-Grip is specially designed to keep knocking knuckles aligned and shift the bat away from the palm and into the fingers. This forces your grip to be in perfect alignment every time! Additionally, the V-Grip keeps the bat from turning in the hands during the swing, giving players maximum control. In recent field tests, the V-Grip was shown to increase bat speed, power and ball flight distance by an average of 7%! Swing speed is also enhanced by the TRU Balance Weighting System which ensures a perfect weight distribution from top to bottom. Mattingly: Be a Game Changer! The Ripped is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
