Pros: The first three times up, my 13yr old son crushed the ball...
Cons: ..until it cracked near the handle when he got jammed on his 4th at bat. Good thing there is a warranty, but not thrilled with the durability.
Bat Pack BamBooBat Bamboo and Marucci Maple Blem Wood Baseball Bats: HWBR100M and MCMBLEM
* Click on each bat in the bat pack to get individual features for that bat
Pros: This bat used to be the MCMBBCULL before that bat changed its look. I am assuming that these are just the leftovers and they changed the model number. Great, great bats and such a good value for a quality Marucci wood bat.
Cons: I've had many of these and haven't been able to identify the "blem" in most of them. The latest one was just a small nick in the end of the barrel. Doesn't bother me!
Pros: Nice strong looking bat.. Hit a triple at my first at bat..
Cons: The paint chips or cracks
Pros: Bats are really hard and seem to hold up a little more then others.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Nice Finish and Feel, but
Cons: Unfortunately, using on a chilly day cracked on my son's first contact with the ball.
Pros: good look ... solid ... great balance. ..great pop
Pros: None that i can think of!
Cons: I used the bat in 3 three plate appearances and it broke in the 3rd and final at bat! I would never bye another BLEM bat!
Pros: Good pop.
Cons: Nicks on it when it arrived. Swings heavy
Pros: feels great. Has a lot of pop. Great bat for the price!
Cons: none yet
Pros: Has good balance...seems solid.
Cons: None discovered yet.
Pros: Love the durability of these especially for blems. I run an adult baseball team and use this as my bat/the team bat. Always have at least one leftover at the end of the season and there will be five or more players using them. Ball jumps off the bats
Cons: Ordered blems 5 times now. Got a model I liked everytime but once. The risk of getting a model I dont like is worth the reward. If you care about the look black isnt the most exciting thing in the world
Pros: looks nice
Cons: bat broke the first time at use
Pros: Can't go wrong using these Marucci blem bats. Pop is the best I have gotten from any brands blemished bats.
Cons: Wish they had a natural finish rather than just black
Pros: With a 13 y.o. who loves to swing wood in the cage and at practice, these bats are a great deal. As far as blemishes go, I can't find any. Bats are well balanced and high quality. Can't go wrong at this price point.
Cons: The "Blem" decal is kind of tacky, but you're paying for a bat not eye candy. Just hit it.
Pros: I really love the feel of the bat, I wish every bat I have held felt like this.
Cons: NO POP. by the price you can tell that these two bats aren't really top notch, but i prefer getting a pro model like the AP5 or big papi. Own both right now and they are phenomenal.
Pros: the bats only come with a small nick or chip in the paint. The bats last a long time and have a lot of pop even in the cold weather.
Cons: some blems tend to break in the first month but others last a year or so.
Pros: great pop
Pros: Shipping to me in Japan was as quick as can be expected and the box that the bats arrived in was in great condition condition. After unboxing the bats I have to say that I was very impressed, aside from the lame and cheesy "BLEM" that covers the Marucci "M". The finish was top-notch and looked beautiful. I could not see any visual defects with the bats (I got the "bat pack" ). So I was thinking, "great! I basically just got 2 Marucci bats for the price of 1!" Well, thats where the excitement stops for me...
Cons: As you cannot select the style of turn when you buy blemished bats, I was slightly disappointed when both of mine turned out what seemed to be a 110 style bat. But having only swung mostly 271 style bats I figured "eh, I'll make these work for me." First BP session: Swung the bat a good 50 or so times and while the feel of the bat was great, I feel like the distance I got off of it was worse than my 17 year old ash bat. I thought maybe I was doing something wrong and just decided to stick with it. A few more BP sessions later and I still feel like it just doesn't have the pop that it should. Well, in it's 2nd game of use I hit a ball square on the barrel. The bat absolutely exploded in my hands. It split into 3 big pieces and the biggest piece, the barrel, had several more cracks running the length of it. This was all on 1 of the 2 bats I received. The 2nd bat feels similar in pop so I'm sure its a matter of time before that one explodes as well.
Pros: flawless for a maple bat, impeccable finish. I picked this up for a my kid when he was 13.. year and a half later this bat has been used and abused. Did a hitting session yesterday and he hit 3 out with the Maruch, and only 1 with his 917 Prime. Ordering another in a bigger size. The bone rub makes this bat very hard, and the finish is like a piano.
Cons: None so far, its a steel for MLB quality maple. Hope the second is as good as the first.
Cons: bat broke the 2nd plate appearance that I used it.

The Marucci Maple Wood Baseball Bat (MCMBLEM) will be an approximate -2 to -3 length to weight ratio.

Because of that, the price is lower; but their integrity is not compromised.
