New for 2013, the Rawlings Machine youth bat utilizes the help of new technologies that are all designed with one goal in mind: to increase player swing speed with exceptional balance and feel! This starts with Precision Optimized Performance (pOp) Technology. This technology is accomplished through isolating the added weight to a smaller region on the barrel than any other competing bat. The maximum rebound zone of the bat is surrounded by thin walls that create additional flex and a larger, more reactive sweet spot. The Machine is built from Rawlings X-Treme Performance Composite that gives this bat outstanding barrel trampoline and excellent durability. Ph.D Technology is used inside the handle to dampen vibration and improve the feel of the bat. The Machine is approved for play in Little League, Babe Ruth, Dixie, Pony, AABC, and USSSA. It also features the new USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp. Check out the Rawlings Machine at JustBats.com today!
