The Black, and subsequently the Black 2, were Marucci’s first attempts at designing a hybrid baseball bat that combined great pop and durability. Those attempts were extremely fruitful, as the Black was almost as popular as its one-piece counterpart, the CAT 5. Building on their experience and the Black’s success, Marucci introduces their new multimaterial bat, the Elite
The Elite features a unique, multimaterial design which seamlessly combines a composite handle and AZ3000 alloy barrel with 3” to 4” of composite material at the end of the barrel. This new design redistributes weight from the end of the barrel to the taper and handle which creates improved balance, faster swing speeds and a larger sweet spot than the Black 2. The patented Unequal® aramid-reinforced grip helps eliminate the sting from off-center hits.
The Elite is now available through JustBats.com in BBCOR and -10 Senior League models. Send us your opinions on the Elite and pictures or video for a chance to win a $25 or $300 gift card.
