Pros:  Marucci does it again! I had the Cat 7 Connect BBCOR all last season, and I loved it. I had to get the Cat 8 Connect and I was amazed that this bat is better than the last. Pop is there, the end-loaded feeling is there, and no vibrations. Great swinging two piece bat that's actually a little stiffer than the 7, which I love!

Cons:  Graphics are so clean I don't want to get it dirty.

Pros:  My 13 y/o was swinging the DeMarini -5 which is a great bat, but needed to go to a BBCOR. I've been doing a ton of research on bats and we decided to go with this one. Bat came in on same day as a tourney. Pulled it out of the box and then went 3-4 with two smoking doubles. He said it does have a slight end weight, but nothing drammatic; plus he liked it. He absolutely loves the feel and the overall swing of this bat. He told me "this is one of the best bats I've ever had." Great pop! Now the rest of the team is starting to swing it as well (ugh).

Cons:  Still has the loud ping, which is awesome during games but when inside the indoor batting cage it does get loud. Not really a bad thing because in a game its really cool!

Pros:  Balaned

Cons:  No pop. I was hitting the ball over the head of outfielders in high school with my CAT 7 Connect -3. I tried the CAT 8 Connect for one weekend tournament and haven't used it since.

Pros:  Great price. Nice grip. Sound is good

Cons:  Don't get the pop I got with last year's CAT 7. My team agrees. I was a Demarini user and after using the 2019 CF Zen I'm going back to it. It's amazing.

All things being equal...between the CAT 8 and the Cat 8 Connect which will give the hitter more power/distance?

That is difficult to fully answer as it will be dependent on the type of hitter. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 is a one piece alloy with a balance swing weight. This will benefit the more traditional power hitters. While still offering performance for contact hitters. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8 is a two piece hybrid which allows for more flex in the swing. This usually benefits the more traditional contact hitters. This will be slightly end loaded which can benefit power hitters as well.

Have there been any problems regarding the durability of the connection? Or if a player gets jammed would it damage the connection?

There haven't been any issues to this point regarding the connection between the handle and barrel of the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8. The Cat 7 Connect was a great, durable bat, so we have no reason to think the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8 would be different. Obviously, the bat is not designed to hit balls directly off the connection area, so multiple direct hits to the connection could be damaging.

Can he use the CAT 8 Connect when it's cold outside with the composite handle and all?

The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8 can be used in colder temperatures even though it has a composite handle.

Cameron Expert

I see that the new CAT 8 comes in a solid design, 2 piece design (Connect)/and a composite design. Which is the best to purchase for a routine base hitter that swings a CAT 6 very well 31/28; high school/travel ball player 15 yr old 125 pounds.

If the player has been using the CAT 6 with success then it would be better to go with the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC8 as this is a more comparable bat compared to the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8 will feature a more end-loaded design which will give this bat a different feel than the CAT 6 he has been using.

How does this bat compare to the "regular" CAT 8?

The two main differences between these bats will be their swing weight and overall construction. The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBCC8) will feature an end-loaded swing weight and has a two-piece, hybrid design (composite handle with an alloy barrel). The 2019 Marucci CAT 8 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC8) has a balanced swing weight and features a one-piece, all alloy construction.

Description for 2019 Marucci CAT 8 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBCC8
New for the 2019 season! Take your game to the next level with the new and improved Marucci bat lineup. One of the main differences from the CAT 7 is the new and improved AZ105 Alloy, the strongest aluminum on the Marucci bat line, allows for thinner barrel walls, a higher response rate and better durability. Additionally, the SDX EXT, or Extended Shock Dissipating Connection, increases the bat's overall stiffness for maintaining energy transfer to the ball while diminishing unwanted vibration to the player's hands. Another upgrade for the 2019 lineup is the 2nd Generation AV2 Anti-Vibration Knob that features a harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback. Marucci Sports: Honor the Game.

This 2018 Marucci CAT8 Connect BBCOR baseball bat features a -3 length to weight ratio and 2 5/8 inch ring-free barrel construction important for increased barrel flex and reducing the likelihood of dead spots, so every ball you hit can travel high and far. The barrel is also precision-balanced for a lower M.O.I, resulting in a lighter feel as you swing and giving you better precision and control. Its one-piece alloy construction provides a clean, consistent swing, and the tapered handle with its soft-touch grip is topped with an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort while you're at the plate. This bat is BBCOR certified for high school and collegiate baseball play, and it comes with free shipping and a full one-year manufacturer's warranty. Don't forget, with our 24/7 customer service, we will be here for you from click to hit!
