Pros:  My son, 15, was a huge Cat6 fan but went away from when they made changes in the Cat7. When the Cat8 came out he demoed it and the smile on his face said it all. Great balance and tons of pop. I do a ton of research on bats and he has tried everything from the Velo to the Mako Beast, to the 918. This bat is the best on the market.

Cons:  Absolutely nothing.

Pros:  More balanced than the Cat7 with more pop. Quick through the zone with great control and tons of pop. The Cat8 will be the best Marucci as put out. We are very picky about bats and don't care about looks, only performance. This bat has it all. Don't get caught up in price, this is the best bat in our tests in our families batting cage, including the Velo, Mako and 918. All great bats, but the Cat8 performed the best.

Cons:  Nothing.

Pros:  Bat has the distinctive Marucci sound Large sweet spot Well balanced

Cons:  Has a matte finish, unlike the previous Cat 7's glossy finish. This finish/paint is not as durable. This new bat already has a scratch down to the metal through the paint. Owned a Cat 7 for more than a year and it doesn't have any scratches down to the metal even though it's been used for thousands of cuts.

Is an aluminum or composite bat better for my son who is 5’5 115lbs? What are the pros or cons?

Traditionally speaking, aluminum provides a stiffer, yet higher conduction of vibrations, upon contact. This has favored power hitters. Composite flexes more on contact and dampens the vibrations, for a more comfortable bat. This model, the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 is a one piece aluminum bat that will provide high levels of power on contact and uniquely offers a vibration dampening knob for a very comfortable feel at the plate. I would recommend this model for any size or type of hitter.

I was about to order this bat for my son and noticed the response to a previous question was that the bat is not USSSA approved. Is the bat a qualified BBCOR bat that can be used in 14u USSSA tournaments?

The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 is BBCOR certified which is a higher standard than USSSA and therefore will be allowed for all 14u USSSA baseball

How does the Cat 8 Connect compare to the Cat 7 Connect? Are both end loaded?

The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 is comparable to the CAT 7 as far as feel and performance. They are more of a balanced than end loaded bat. The CAT 8 features the new AZ105 alloy to help make it more durable.

Is this an end loaded bat? Or is the Connect the end loaded one? What size for a 5’6", 115 lb player, 14u?

The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 is a one-piece all alloy model featuring a balanced swing weight while the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8 is a hybrid design (alloy barrel and composite handle) with an end-loaded swing weight. As for size to get, based on the player's height, weight and age we would recommend a 30 inch model.

Which bat is better for BBCOR, is it the Cat 8 or the Cat 8 Connect?

Both bats are great BBCOR options. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8 is a two-piece hybrid with an end-loaded feel. This is a good option for a player that needs a little flex in their bat. In contrast, the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 is a one piece alloy with a balanced swing weight. Power hitters tend to have success with the stiffer one piece alloy bats. Depending on your player's preference, they could find success with either option.

What is the drop on this bat?

The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 will have a drop 3. All BBCOR certified bats will be -3.

How does the CAT 8 compare to the CAT 7 as far as end load or balanced feel?

Although we have not had a chance to get a feel for the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 we would imagine the swing weight feel would be more balanced than the CAT 7 due to the improvements that have been made.

Cameron Expert

How does this bat compare to the Cat 7? How dramatic are the improvements?

The AZ105 alloy is stronger than the AZ4X on the Cat 7, allowing the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 to have thinner walls off the sweet spot creating more forgiving areas and higher performance even when contact is made off the sweet spot. The Cat 8 also offers 8 variables of wall thickness compared to the 7 variables of wall thickness on the Cat 7.
