RIP-IT’s new AIR technology is now available for baseball players in the Prototype BBCOR AIR and for fastpitch players in the Prototype -10 AIR. Simply put, these two bats will be some of the most balanced bats on the market. This will result in better bat control which can help keep you alive at the plate with two strikes or turn a foul ball into a double in the gap. The extreme balance in the new Prototype AIR will also result in an increase in bat speed allowing you to hit for more power!
First, lets take a look at the technology behind the Prototype AIR BBCOR model. Rather than using rings on the inside of the barrel to meet BBCOR standards, RIP-IT uses Rifle Technology to make the inside of the barrel grooved. The Rifle barrel is responsible for making the bat feel so light. In fact, the Prototype AIR has 7.2% better weight distribution than the Prototype II. The Prototype AIR features RIP-IT’s revolutionary R1 alloy. The R1 alloy produces a stronger and more responsive barrel which allows you to hit for more power. The handle of the Prototype AIR is armed with RIP-IT’s Contact grip which provides an amazing level of comfort and eliminates vibration to the hitter’s hands.
Now lets look at the Fastpitch model of the Prototype AIR. The new Prototype AIR will deliver nearly twice the performance as the Reaper and Force bats of old. The main difference between the baseball and fastpitch models of the Prototype AIR is the fastpitch model features R1 composite rather than alloy. The R1 composite is thinner, which allows for more layers, and stronger, which makes for a higher performing bat. The Harmonic barrel not only gives players a larger sweet spot, but creates the sound of a perfect hit. The Ridge grip on the handle is composed of Advanced Memory Foam for added comfort and is designed to eliminate vibration. The elimination of the fear of bad vibration will result in a more confident hitter at the plate.
