Built from Mizuno's ultra-responsive Black Onyx Carbon Composite, the 2016 Nighthawk's barrel provides absolutely everything a slow pitch player demands from their game-day bat. Its new Triple Wall Construction utilizes two thin polypropylene layers of film that are sandwiched between three thicker layers of composite. This film allows the composite barrel walls to "slide" and move independently, leading to lower barrel compression, higher peak performance out of the wrapper, and the largest sweet spot Mizuno has ever created. A stiff composite handle is then united to this premium barrel with Mizuno's patented 2-Piece LINK Technology. This thickness-tuned elastomer is key to the Nighthawk's ability to dampen vibration at a much higher rate than other bats on the market without any decrease in performance.
