Pros: 8 yr old -We have started this year with this bat and my daughter loves the feel and when she hits the bakll it gives the sound I expect out of this bat! Durable and looks like dependable so far. Thank you Mr Mattingly
Cons: Only draw back is expected with v-grips- same spot on the bat when hitting properly, will shorted life time of bat, but it will outlast my daughter at this level going up in length and weight.

looking for a good not so costly bating cage bat for practice,
your not supposed to use composit bats in the bating cage right? she has a miken freak and a miken rain not cheap i do not want to damage them.
Asked by scott
Once you break in the composite bats, it's best not to use them in the cage. That just depreciates the life of the bat, so most people do purchase a cheap bat for batting practice. The Mattingly would definitely be a good option for what your needing.
Hi! Are you familiar with the performance of the MB5500 Atomic Allow in the Mattingly V-Grip Ripped Fastpitch Bat? Thanks.
Asked by James
The MB5500 Atomic Alloy is Mattingly's highest end alloy so it will perform better than their bats that do not have it.

Mattingly Hitting Products (MHP) Company was founded to promote improved hitting ability in young baseball players through the use of the patented V-Grip TM baseball bat and Don Mattingly's approach to hitting. MHP has created the first truly unique innovation in baseball and softball bats since the introduction of aluminum bats during the 1970's. Early in his baseball career, Don quickly realized that the key to increasing hand quickness and bat speed could be found in the grip, and that a good grip meant positioning the bat in the fingers and not in the palms.

Description for Mattingly Ripped Fastpitch Softball Bat: RPDFP
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!
I ordered a bat and paid through paypal. Apparently the payment did not process correctly, but no notification was sent from paypal or justbats. I called the day I expected my bat to arrive and was apprised of the situation. The rep. arranged for overnight shipment w/o even being asked. My son had the bat the next morning and was ready to play in his tournament. The rep took what could've been a very negative experience and made me a loyal customer of justbats! Wish I remembered his name so I could give him credit. Thank you, Wendy Umatilla, FL
