Pros: Great bat that looks awesome. Lots of pop right out of the wrapper. No "sting". I like the seamless design. you cant even tell it's a two-peice bat unless you look close. Quality end cap. I would definitely recommend this bat.
Cons: Feels a little heavier than the -5 Demarini voodoo that I was using before but I didnt have any trouble getting the barrel through the zone. With that said, I like the Marucci black better than my 2012 voodoo.
Pros: lots of pop! awsome looking! my 13 year old was stuck on composite but after swinging this bat he change his mind!He absolutly loves it!with that said we have only had it for about a month so hes only used at trainers so dont know how it will hold up but so far he loves it!
Pros: love it! No let down at all! First year using -5 and it feels better them some of my teammates -8. Great balance, large sweet spot, no sting. One of the best I have ever had, might go down as the best time will tell. I have hit with a lot of other top in bats, this one was hot right out of the wraper!
Cons: has a few chips in paint but paint doesn't make the ball jump!
Pros: Great bat, with some serious pop. It is very balanced and looks great too. The knob really does prevent to much sting. Also many people are complaining about how the paint scratches, it does but it hard to notice. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Cons: Is extremely balanced so it does take one round or so of BP to get used to it. Not a big problem at all though.
Pros: My 13 year old son was looking for a -5 bat to bridge him over to the BBCOR -3 required for high school baseball. I purchased this bat because he loves his Marucci AP5 wood bat; the reviews on JustBats.com were convincing; and the price was right. When he received the bat (earlier than expected), he liked the balance & look. He really likes the pop he gets from hitting the ball on the screws. I witnessed his first at-bats with 2 hard-hit liners to Center Field and one very hard-hit ground ball that rocketed past the ShortStop between the Left Fielder & Center Fielder all the way to the fence! We're sold, and are reviewing Marucci little league approved bats for my younger 11 year old son.
Pros: As stated by others the bat is well balanced and my son hits well with it. Good pop.
Cons: We bought this bat when it first came out. The paint held up during winter training, but after my son's first tournament it was a mess. Paints chips to the metal everywhere on the barrel. Saw other bats with similar chipping issues. Called Marucci and was told the first lot of bats produced had a paint defect issue and that they would replace. Also anti-vibration insert at the knob popped lose after a session in the batting cage. Hope the replacement bat holds up.
Pros: This bat is very hot right out of the wrapper. my 12 year old went with the 30/25. He plays on a Major travel team so I was worried it would be to heavy for the faster pitching. I was wrong as he hit lights out his first two tourneys with it. Highly recommended!
Cons: None yet, but we have only had it for a month.
Pros: My 13 year old sons drop 5 feels like a drop 9. Just hit a bucket of balls and I'm very impressed with how nice this bat swings. Good pop hit several balls 230 plus feet. Marucci has something special going on with this design.
Pros: Everything about it! Have tried other bats and none compare to the pop that this one has. Well, maybe one other that is now banned which is the first Combat DaBomb. My son loves this bat more than the Cat 5 he previously had. Were loyal to Marucci.
Pros: Well balanced bat. I moved my 13 yr old son up to this bat from a -8.5 Louisville Slugger ExoGrid & this bat out performs it. May be because the Black is heavier (-5), but I believe it's because this bat is a well made bat with lots of pop.
Cons: Prefer another color. Our rival school's colors are black. Oh well, can't have it all...
Cons: Large paint chips exposing metal on bat after 1 use and Marucci will not stand by their product when this occurs. Have used DeMarini, Easton, Mattingly and none of them have had paint chipping like this one esp after 1 use.
