Pros:  Just as much pop as the Maxum at half the cost! Picked up this bat for my son who was wanting a Maxum real bad. After using this bat in practice tonight, he was sending every ball to the fence in the air! A thing of beauty. I really like this bat more than the Maxum because it has a slightly smaller sweet spot, so you actually have to hit the ball with a little more precision, makes the kids better in the long run.

Cons:  None at all! Buy this instead of the Maxum, you won't be sorry!

Pros:  Drop 10 gives the kids a faster bat head speed and they are able to get around faster. They just moved up to a 13-15 yr old team and at 13, they need the speed. They are getting solid contact, no sting and great distance.

Cons:  None yet. Good value for a good bat.

Pros:  Bought this bat for my 10 year old. Has great pop and feel. If you miss there can be some sting but not that bad. Has similar pop to a broken in Maxum (2016 with 1.5 years worth of swings), just about 15 feet shorter distance. Highly recommend!

Pros:  We purchased this bat for my son playing 10u and I believe that this bat performs just as well if not better that some of the higher end expensive composite bats! In fact, many of the kids on the team started using it and absolutely loved it! It is great that you can get this kind of performance and not break the bank!!! I would defiantly buy another Combat!!!

Cons:  Everyone wants to use it! ;)

Pros:  My son used the 28/18 size this yr and loved it. Now with these being discontinued I bought him the 29/19 and a 30/20. He hit 265 ft on the 29 and then 295 on the 30. He is a skinny 11yr old so this bat gives him great pop and distance for his size. I also just bought the Velo bat for cokd weather and he love that too but had more shock to the hands. These are a steal at this price compared to a slugger 918 price and we feel hits just as far.

Cons:  The only CON is that Easton getting rid of this line. I would go bacj to Slugger without these before I would let my kid swing an Easton. Just our preference.

Pros:  Went up an ounce and son mentioned it even feels lighter than his previous bat. Easy to swing and he seems to have good control as the weight is balanced.

Cons:  First few games it seemed to jump off the bat, now it looks and sounds more like a dud. he still likes to use it and occasional he has a good solid hit but seems to have lost it pop in only one season.

Pros:  Switched my son from a Mako to this Marucci for 11U travel and what a difference! His confidence has already increased significantly. The sweet spot seems larger than the mako and has a lot more pop with less vibration. Every time he's finished in the cages, the other players are trying to get their hands on it. It's worth the money!

Cons:  None yet...curious how the 3/4 will hold up after a few games but so far, no CONS at all. Great product...very happy.

Pros:  Great feel. Big sweet spot. Lots of pop. Looks cool and makes a great sound. My 11 yo went from Rec/All-Stars to travel and wanted a big barrel. This has a great weight on the swing and the transition to a heavier bat was seamless. Hit his first ever homerun (dead center) in his 3rd time up. It has become very popular with his teammates too.

Cons:  None yet

Pros:  AV2 knob

Cons:  Barrel is a little shorter than the Posey. However the AV2 knob is the whole reason to buy this bat. My son used his Posey and dealt with the hand sting all last season. After this tournament with the Cat 7 I asked if he had any desire to use his Posey again and he said no. He stated the Cat 7 didn't sting his hands once. As for the negative comments about barrel length, the Posey isn't exactly the longest barrel either. If your looking for a longer barrel get the HEX connect. If you're looking for a solid bat for a confident hitter this is a great bat to consider.

Pros:  My son was using a combat 27 -10 and we switch him to Cat 7 and you could tell the immediate difference. The balls fly off this bat and has become a team favorite. So much so that a couple of kids have gone out an purchased these bats for their own.

Cons:  None

Pros:  AV2 knob Sweet Spot I'm not going to get on here and say this bat made my kid hit big home runs or triples galore. In an honest review, this bat has improved my kids confidence. The sting from his previous Mako and even the 516 are gone. We have probably hit about 800 baseballs with this in practices and he has used in 6 games so far. At no point does he tell me his hands are stinging from hard contact with the ball. This improved confidence has helped him overall improve his avg and slg percentages. He was so worried about the sting from the Mako Beast that he stopped using it. Not with the Cat 7 so far. Marucci has put out some great bats for older and younger leagues but glad this came out now to hit the 9-12u range of kids that just could not swing a -8 or -5 yet or needed a longer bat than a 27. We have the 29/19.

Cons:  I dislike white bats-really the only problem so far is being white and showing every stain.

Pros:  It does perform well. My son swings it like it's weightless. He has very quick hands.

Cons:  I specifically asked Just Bats was the sweet spot as big as the sweet spot on the Cat 6 and Cat 7 from coach pitch. You can see my question right here online. They said it was comparable/the same. Oh no it is definitely smaller. The bat is too skinny just like the F5. Also the price dropped from $225 to $199 like 2 days after I bought it. But my son still hits deep w this bat. Looking to get a Hex Connect now. A bat w a real sweet spot.

Pros:  11U son always prefers 1 piece, but with that comes some sting on occassion. when Cat 7 with the anti-vibration knob came out, we tried it out. Bat diesn’t make the players better hitters, practicing good mechanics and confidence does. in my opinion, this bat allows for both.

Cons:  Nothing yet. cannot comment on durability yet, but that’s why these bats have warranties.

Pros:  My son is on the small side. I have tried several bats: the Voodoo, CF Zen, 618 SOLO. I found with him Aluminum bats worked better, but he didn't like the vibration. The only bat that closely compared to this bat was the 618 SOLO, and even though the 618 doesn't vibrate as much, it doesn't have ad much pop as the CAT 7

Cons:  Smaller kids like my son will love this bat, but stronger hitters will want to go with the -8. Vibration is a little harsher than the 618 Solo, however it is not bad at all.

Pros:  This is the third Cat 7 purchased in my house. The first two were -8 and -5 models for my middle child. Never had an issue with either one of those, just ages have different drops that they use. This 30/-10 was purchased for my youngest child. He has had several composite bats and we wanted to go back to a one piece aluminum and the Cat 7 was the only one we really wanted to go with because of the success we've had with this bat in prior use.

Pros:  The Cat 7 has more (PoP) ball speed than the more expensive composite bats and is much better balanced. Younger batters can swing this bat much faster and with better mechanics than a end loaded composite. The bat is ready to go out of the wrapper and just as good in cold weather as it is in warm weather. Try to find a composite that can do that. I promise your Kid will enjoy this Bat and the vibration dampener really works. We had the Cat 6 and was very satisfied and even more satisfied with Cat 7.

Cons:  nothing so far

Pros:  First time BP with it my 9 year old is hitting tape measure one hop shots to a 215ft fence! The smile on his face is priceless! and he’s been hitting with the Louisville Slugger Prime 916 prior to the Cat 7. I definitely recommend this bat to any player.

Cons:  He does feel a little sting with fastballs from his coach but feels nothing when hitting a pitch from kids

How would you compare this to the Vigor that is 2 3/4 barrel. Do you gain pop for less barrel surface. Trying to decide which bat for a 9 year old hitter.

You would see a little better performance out of a 2 3/4" barrel due to the thinner barrel walls. The 2 5/8" diameter of the 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL110 will offer increased durability.

My son wants a COMBAT MAXUM but I'm not dropping that much money when the new USA Bat standard starts next year. Is this bat anywhere near comparable to the MAXUM?

The 2017 COMBAT VIGOR -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: VG2SL110 will feature a one-piece fully composite design with a balanced swing weight just like the MAXUM model. The difference that one will find with the Vigor is that the barrel length is not as extended thus giving the bat a slightly smaller sweet spot and less balanced swing weight feel when compared to the MAXUM line. Overall, it is a very good bat especially for someone looking for a discounted option as one awaits the transition to the new USABat stamped models.

What is the difference between the CAT 7 (-10) and the new CAT 8 (-10)?

The biggest upgrades that will show up on the CAT 8 (when compared to this 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10) are the new multi-variable wall design that creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact and the 2nd generation anti-vibration knob that further limits the discomfort in the hands from a miss-hit.

Whether or not to get the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 in a 29 inch model, based on his current height and weight, would be more about how well he is handling the current 27/17 bat that he is using.

My son is 8 and plays travel ball. I bought the drop 8 version of the senior league model in a 2 5/8" barrel because some of the leagues will not let the kids use the 2 3/4" barrel, and the -10 is only a 2 3/4" barrel. He can swing the drop 8 but is a bit heavy for him and his teammates but if they square it up it's a nice hit. Any chance Marucci will make a drop 10 version in the 2 5/8 barrel size?

We have not heard of any plans for Marucci to make a 2 5/8" barrel diameter model for their -10 bat at this time.

Is there a significant difference in performance and durability from Marucci's CAT 7 27"/17 oz (-10) MJBBC7 versus 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat MSBC7X10? And lastly, which bat would you recommend?

The Junior Big Barrel model is designed for coach pitch and machine pitch, while the Senior League model is designed for kid pitch. A Junior Big Barrel model will not hold up in a kid pitch league too long, as it has thinner barrel walls designed to offer good performance, but at slower pitch speeds. If you play kid pitch, go with the Senior League model, but if you play coach/machine pitch, then the Junior Big Barrel model would work for you.

Is there any difference in performance or pop with this bat because it's a drop 10 as opposed to the drop 8 CAT 7? Also is there a better alloy bat out there in your opinion and what is the best composite bat? Trying to buy a new bat for my son.

Assuming the player can handle the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 and the CAT 7 -8 model the same, meaning the bat speed does not change, then a player would experience better results with the -8 model as this bat has more mass to throw into the ball. As for alloy bats in either size, -10 or -8, the Marucci CAT 7 models will check out as some of the best options to consider but it is hard to say if they are the best or what may be better as this is very subjective and could really only be determined by those players that have used the various options.

I’m looking to move up my son to a CAT 7 28/18 -10 from a CAT 7 27/17. But I’m undecided because somewhere I read the Marucci Hex 2 28/18 has a longer barrel or sweet spot. Is this correct? We are use to the CAT 7 junior big barrel and wouldn’t want to get the CAT 7 28/18 over the Hex 2 if the sweet spot is bigger. Can you confirm this? Local stores don’t carry them so I can’t go out to compare.

Unfortunately we are not aware of the sweet spot size with regards to the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 in comparison to the 2018 Marucci Hex Alloy 2 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHA2X10. Both bats have checked out well based off of consumer reviews so in our opinion either option would work well for your player.

I understand that the senior league bat is designed for kid pitch. What I don't understand is how the performance differs from the junior bat in coach pitch situations. My son is in coach pitch now. Why would I want to choose the junior bat model?

The main advantage of a Junior Big Barrel bat is that they are available in smaller sizes than Senior League models, and the barrel walls are slightly thinner so they give slightly more pop in coach pitch. Some players in coach pitch/machine pitch need a bat in the 25"-27" range, and those are very hard to find in a Senior League model. If your player is large enough/strong enough to use a slightly larger model that is a Senior League bat, I would probably recommend that as it would be a bit more durable overall and would offset the small performance difference.

My son currently is a 5 foot, 120 lbs., ten year old in 10u. He has swung a 31" 20 oz 2016 Easton MAKO for the last two years. I am seriously considering getting him the CAT 7. Should I get the 31 inch 21 oz or the 30 inch 20 oz? Another kid on our team has the Posey28 Metal in the 30 inch 20 oz.

Looking at your son's height and weight, would recommend getting the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 in a 30 inch model. If you feel he can handle the heavier size of 31/21 then there is certainly nothing wrong with getting that size of bat. With the CAT 7 being a well balanced bat a size bigger may not affect his swing.

I'm trying to decide between the Hex Alloy 2 and this bat. My son is a contact hitter looking for a balanced swing. He's coming from a Rawlings 5150. Which bat would you recommend?

There are two main differences between the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 and the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10. The first is the material used in the barrel. The Cat 7 will utilize AZ4X alloy that will offer increased strength and a higher response rate, while the Hex 2 has AZ105 alloy to allow for thinner barrel walls without any durability sacrifice. The other notable difference is that the Cat 7 will come with an anti-vibration knob to cut down on negative feedback on contact, unlike the Hex 2. Because of these features, I would personally recommend the Cat 7.

The Cat 7 is going to offer you an AZ4X alloy barrel to provide an extremely high response rate. Furthermore, the newly optimized barrel design has created a sweet spot twice the size of the Cat 6. I think the Cat 7 is a terrific bat and would certainly recommend it.

Does this bat or the Hex Alloy 2 have a longer barrel length?

The portion of barrel on this 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC7X10) that measures out to the full 2 3/4" diameter will be slightly shorter in length on this bat when compared to the portion of barrel that measures out to the full 2 3/4" diameter on the Hex Alloy 2.

What is main difference in this bat and the hex alloy 2? Which one is better?

The 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 and the 2018 Marucci Hex Alloy 2 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHA2X10 differ in two distinct ways. The first is that the Cat 7 has an AV2 knob to reduce negative feedback on contact. The second is that the Hex Alloy 2 utilizes AZ105 alloy to thin the walls for better performance without sacrificing durability, while the Cat 7 uses AZ4X alloy to increase both strength and response rate. I would not say one is better than the other, rather it comes down to what you/your player's priorities are with in a bat.

What's the difference in this bat and the F5 besides price?

The Marucci Cat 7 has better barrel optimization for a large sweet spot as well as an anti-vibration handle design that the F5 will not.

What are the differences if any between this bat, the Posey metal bat and the 2016 green Hex alloy?

The cosmetics will be the biggest difference in all three models. All three bats will feature one-piece alloy designs with balanced swing weights. The AZ4X alloy offers increased strength with a higher response rate in all three models.

If my 8 year old son currently has the 2017 CAT 7 that is 27"/17 oz with a 2 3/4 barrel would this be the equivalent in moving him up one inch in length?

The 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 is the most equivalent model to what your player has been using most recently. The main difference is this bat is designed for kid pitch leagues with higher velocity.

My son plays travel 11u and currently using a MAKO 30/20. I'm interested in the CAT 7 however he plays with a 2 5/8 barrel. Looks like Marucci only makes the CAT 7 in 30/20 2 3/4. Thoughts on the size difference? Does it really matter to stick with the 5/8 or ok in your opinion to switch up the the 3/4?

The 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 is a limited release Marucci has done for the -10 length to weight ratio and unfortunately it will only be available in 2 3/4" barrels. For an 11U player there is nothing wrong with using a 2 3/4" barrel. This barrel size typically allows for better performance but does sometimes show lower durability.

What is the difference between the Marucci CAT 7 -10 vs the Marucci MSBHA2X10? My son is playing 9U. Also, what weight of bat do you recommend? He is about 72 pounds. Last season he played with the green Hex Alloy 29/19.

The 2018 Marucci Hex Alloy 2 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHA2X10 features a newer alloy that allows for thinner barrel walls resulting in better performance. The 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 features the AV2 knob for less vibration and negative feedback than a traditional one piece alloy bat would allow. At his age and size, I would suggest sticking with the 29/19 size.

Could you please explain the differences between this bat and Marucci's Posey Pro Metal?

The only difference between the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 and the Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBP28X10 is the maple wood grain cosmetics featured on the Posey metal model.

Is the length of the barrel and sweet spot as big as the 2017 Cat 7 Junior Big Barrel? I have noticed the 2018 bats such as the F5 are being made with significantly smaller barrels. My hitters need that big sweet spot.

The barrel and sweet spot should be very similar between the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC7X10) and the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC7). In terms of durability, if your player is playing kid pitch, you will want to use this Senior League CAT 7 instead of the Junior Big Barrel CAT 7.

For the 27", any difference in the Junior Big Barrel vs this new model?

The inside of the barrel of this 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC7X10) will be designed to withstand the velocities thrown by a kid pitch player (45+ mph). The 27" Junior Big Barrel CAT 7 is only meant for use with coach pitch or machine pitch baseball where the pitch velocity is below 45 mph. The 27" version of this 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC7X10) should be able to be used with pitch velocities that are above 45 mph.
