Marucci baseball bats continue to be swung by players at all levels of the game, and for good reason. The F5 series is ready to take the nation by storm. When Marucci released the famous CAT series, they named it after hurricane categories due to the sheer strength of their AZ4X aluminum alloy. Now, Marucci has stuck with the weather references and named this model after another one of nature's most violent storms: an F5 tornado. They did so because of the F5 baseball bats ability to wreak havoc on a field. As a one-piece aluminum alloy construction, this model delivers a traditional, consistent feel with a balanced swing weight for better control through the zone. Inside of the barrel, Marucci utilizes a multi-variable wall design that creates a massive sweet spot with unprecedented durability. They have also applied their proven Ring-free barrel technology that maximizes performance at the plate while guaranteeing zero dead spots. On the other end, a custom micro-perforated soft touch grip decreases negative impact feedback and increases overall comfort. Marucci: Honor The Game!
This Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBF5) features a 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, a drop 3 length to weight ratio, and the BBCOR certification for high school and collegiate approval. Experience the power of an F5 and buy one of these Marucci baseball bats today with free shipping and a full one (1) year manufacturer's warranty. Don't forget, we're here for you from click to hit!
Pros: I was really looking for an entry level bbcor bat for my 14 yr old, Thinking that he wasn't quite ready for a 33/30 and needed a little time with a 31/28 before making the jump. He could not be more pleased with our selection, a lot of pop, great feel, certainly we could have spent a lot more but no way we would have been more pleased!
Pros: Low Cost
Great Pop (when barreled up)
Well Balanced (slight end-load)
There honestly isn't any other bats as good at this price point. Incredible power on the sweet spot. This is effectively a CAT 7 without the ring free knob.
There are very few one piece bats featuring variable wall thickness - Marucci CAT 7, Rawlings Velo, Mizuno Generations and Axe Hyperwhip are the only other options that I'm aware of. This is important because it helps to reduce the weight of the barrel (to improve balance) and improves the trampoline effect just off the sweet spot. The result is a more balanced swing versus similar size/weight alloy bats.
When you square one up with this bat, the loud ping let's everyone know it. It has a loud, long resonance that gives good, positive feedback to the batter.
Another huge plus is Marucci customer service, they've always treated me like a valued customer and are very generous with their warranty policies.
Cons: Hand Ring
As a single piece alloy without the special knob, there is nothing to prevent hand ring on mishits. Some like the honest feedback, but no one actually likes the sting shooting up your arm when you hit one off the end of the bat.
Second, the barrel is pretty small compared to the current crop of boat oars that are out right now. Many bats (Beast/Ghost, Project 3, CF Zen, Quatro, every Combat ever made) all feature huge barrels, and the F5 isn't anywhere even close. The F5, like the Cat 7/8 feature smaller barrels, similar to the Slugger 5xx, 6xx and 7xx bats.
During tee work, or soft toss, the loud ping does tend to get annoying. Not necessarily a deal-breaker, but if you're hitting into a net in the basement/garage, the sound will get tiresome after a while.
Pros: feels good in the hands at first then when swinging the grip is not good and when making contact the vibration hurts your hands. overall not a good bat for someone looking to play at a high level
Pros: This bat is being used for the transition to bbcor from a drop 5. My son went from and endloaded drop 5 to this bat as it is a balanced feel and easier to swing with the heavier weight. It hits very well when barreled up and has a distinct ping. It has made the transition very simple thus far.
Cons: The only drawback is going from a two piece to a solid aluminum is that there is a little more feedback to the hands when hit off center. Also, for a younger kid making the switch, the handle is a little thicker and not as advantageous to small hands.
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 features a one-piece alloy design.
How does it compare to the Cat 7 BBCOR?
The difference is that the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBCC7) utilizes AZ4X alloy which provides increased strength with a slightly higher response rate than the standard alloy of the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBF5). They are both highly reviewed bats and have been performing extremely well for our users.
Is the weight balanced or end loaded?
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is balanced.
How does it compare to the Omaha 517?
Both the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 and the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBO5173 are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. They will compare favorably to one another in terms of feel, performance and durability.

Would you recommend the Marucci F5 or Marucci Cat 7 for an advanced travel ball player in high school?
The CAT 7 BBCOR bat does receive a little more research and development in its design. Both this 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBF5) and the CAT 7 feature AZ4X alloy. However, the CAT 7 features an optimized barrel design that allows for a bigger sweet spot on the bat. As well, it also features an anti-vibration knob that the F5 does not feature.
Can a lizard skin help with the vibrations?
This 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a one-piece alloy bat which is the most conductive for vibrations on contact. Thicker grip tape can help reduce the vibrations felt on the hands. However, if you are truly wanting to avoid negative feedback we would recommend looking at either a hybrid (alloy barrel/composite handle) or a fully composite bat.
Which alloy does the F5 feature?
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 features AZ4X aluminum alloy.
How is the sound?
The sound of the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 will be that akin to most alloy barrel bats on the market. They tend to produce your traditional "ping" when hit, where as a composite bat would make a far less acoustic noise on contact.

Can you use this bat in a youth league, 9u?
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a -3 bat, which is the size used by high school and college players. I would not recommend this model for a player in a 9u league. For your player, I would check out the 2018 Marucci F5 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBF5X10 which will have a -10 drop weight.

Do you recommend the Marucci F5 BBCOR 32” for a player beginning on the BBCOR bat level?
The Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a great one piece alloy BBCOR option. It is a balanced bat for players making their first step into BBCOR play.
