Bat Pack Marucci Cat 6 -8 and Rawlings Quatro -10 Senior League Baseball Bats: MSBC68 and SL7Q10
* Click on each bat in the bat pack to get individual features for that bat
Pros: Great pop!! Haven't had any problems with it, overall great bat!
Cons: Haven't had any problems
Pros: Sweet bat! HUGE SWEET SPOT!! Very balanced for a drop 8. Easy to swing form the very first swing. Powdering the ball to the all fields! 12 yrs old, appx. 150 lbs and hammering the 31/23. Very minimal vibration felt even on cold days. Love my new Marucci !!
Cons: None that I can feel.
Pros: my son just received the CAT6 and loves it. Great pop out of the wrapper and very balanced. He had to switch to all aluminum and -8 for the middle school team but the transition from a drop ten half/half has been seamless. In fact he has the CAT6 as his number one bat.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Just bought the 29" for my 9yr old son and wow! I have never seen him hit so well. The -8 weight means the user needs to be physically strong enough to swing hard but the balance makes it much easier. One of the best I've ever seen in 5 years of coaching and that includes all of the expensive composites. Looks great too.
Cons: Nothing yet.
Pros: Great feel, Looks great, Good po right out of the wrapper
Cons: None except for the white handle.
Pros: I purchased a Cat 6 bat for my 12 year old son after having loved his 30" -8 Marucci Black 2 . Within 3 weeks of purchase the Cat 6 31/23 -8 had dented and cracked in several places. Had to return the bat for replacement but there were very few options in the -8
Cons: Soft bat, dents easily.
Pros: My travel team just had a game and we hit 7 home runs all with the cat 6 who wouldn't want that bat?
Pros: The bat handle is amazing and you dont even need any batting gloves. The bat also is a balanced bat and wherever you hit it it feels great.
Cons: If you hit the ball on the barrel of the bat there is some vibration and painful enough for you to shake your hand a few times.
Pros: Within one week, my son had adjusted to this bat from a 31, -10.
Cons: Waiting to see about durability, as he even hits weekly during the offseason.
Pros: Good pop and no vibrations even on cold days I just got the 32/27 -5 bat
Pros: bunch a pop. little vibration. the grip is comfortable. like how it sounds when the ball comes off the bat.
Cons: learning how to bunt with it. ??
Pros: Great POP right out of the wrapper and the grip used for this bat, along with the POP and design of the bat, is one feature my son immediately enjoyed. The Quatro collar is also a cool feature for this bat that I feel truly does have a purpose with the absorption. The durability of this bat seems to be way better than some of the other composite bats on the market today.
Cons: none just yet
Pros: I love everything about this bat--the weight, the length, the feel, the grip, everything. The grip is not too slick and not too rough; it's perfect. It's the best bat I've ever known and has already helped in my League. Awesome!
Cons: Absolutely nothing!!
Pros: My son had a chance to try this bat out thanks to a friend. Obviously, the color is an eye-catcher, but my son loved how smooth the feel was. His swing was more balanced and he made a lot more contact. Impressive bat.
Cons: Didn't see one.
Pros: good pop, drives the ball well
Pros: good grip,good pop good everthing
Pros: I figured Rawlings was releasing a gimmicky bat with bright colors. But, my son has used this bat for a few games now and it's amazing. Easy feel that has helped him make contact a lot more. His teammates can't wait to have their own Quatro. Very impressive, Rawlings!
Cons: Still searching
Pros: It felt light and I hit the ball further. The grip of the bat is good, too. Every time before I would bat, I felt confident that I am going to hit the ball. I am going to use this bat next season.
Pros: I've been working in sporting goods for 15 years. This bat looks like it is the best bat my son has had. Hit with it today and he loved it. Beauty and a Beast.
Cons: None so far
Pros: Very bright neon will likely distract opposing pitchers.
Cons: No pop what-so-ever. At a major University camp this past week all players had to use this bat during on-field BP. Not one kid liked it. The bat was dead, and very few kids hit it out of the infield; mostly weak ground balls. Kids used the Velo or 5150 in second round and the results were what you would expect for HS Juniors. Unless this bat is completely re-engineered, DO NOT waste your or your parents money on this neon joke. Stick with the tried and true Velo or 5150!!
Pros: I demoed this bat at the Cal Ripken World Series. This bat has the greatest pop out of all the bats that I've ever used. Also the grip was great, comfortable in hands. The bat was a demo so it was broke in, but either way it had great pop.
Pros: Bat has a good feel, right out of the wrapper, with very good pop.
Cons: After 3 weeks of use, the end cap broke off. Rawlings replaced the bat, after 4 more weeks it shattered. It was a 75 degree day, ball hit the sweet spot and shattered.
Pros: This bat has good balance and the vibration when a ball is hit off the handle is minimal. It doesn't have the pop that the Velo or the CF7 had.
Cons: End cap issues for Rawlings. First one didn't make it two weeks before the end cap came off warming up for a game. Rawlings replaced it, but it looks like a design issue and I won't be surprised if this isn't a common issue. Wish I would have bought the CF7 when I had the chance.
Pros: Guys seemed to like the grip and overall feel of the bat in their hands. Some said it felt light compared to their own bats. Demo was brand new, so not yet broken in, but blew the velo monitor away. The exit velocity averaged 2-5mph over the CF8...team was sold. Get over the color and ended up with 8 of them.
Cons: Too bright...but that's what the kids like these days.
Pros: Goodfeel, balanced, minimal vibration.
Cons: Most of the kids on my sons 12u team has the Quatro bat. We've yet to see any pop out of this bat. I can't understand the high ratings it's getting. After the first two tournaments, no one was hitting the ball hard with this bat. Its almost like it was a piece of soggy wood. Everyone went back to their old DeMarini CF8's and Easton Maco's. Now they are blasting bombs again.
Pros: My son used this for the first time last weekend. He had some nice hits and loved the feel of this bat. He's happy, I'm happy. He says it's the best feeling bat he has ever used. He loves it!
Pros: Good pop
Cons: endcap may fall off
Pros: my favorite color
Cons: no pop, feel all the vibration
Pros: Good Pop, no vibration.
Cons: Bats do not hold up. I know of at least 5 people who have this bat and each have had bats crack, handle broke off, & end cap comes out. I don't know anyone who has this bat that has not had to return for replacement and replacements have not held up either.
Cons: Breaks easily and is junk. Purchased this bat in January of 2017. By June 2017 it had cracked and sent it in for warranty. Bat cracked yesterday in a game and called Rawling's today. They said that if I would have called in January of 2018 they may have considered a warranty but since we are passed the original date of purchase they said no way. This bat is complete junk. I will never buy another bat from them again. And seriously couldn't even offer up a discount of sorts.
Pros: does not vibrate when hit huge sweet spot
Pros: My son loves it. He said it has the mot pop, straight out of the wrapper, than any bat hes had.
Cons: He hasn't had one bad thing to say about it.
Pros: The bat has great pop!
Cons: The bat only cracked in less than a month!!
Pros: I have had this bat for a year or so and it has kept the pop
Cons: the cap fell off of it after 2 tornoments
Pros: Ordered this bat (size 30/20 2017 model) from Just Bats for my 11yr old. Hit about 100 balls off tee. Hit around 200 balls at park. After that the bat was hot. Balls flying everywhere. Large sweet spot. don't know why this bat was flying of the shelves last year in our area.
Cons: None so far
Pros: Very good distance
Cons: Awsome feel
Pros: General feeling is great and so is everything else on this well structured bat
Pros: This bat is hot out of the box! My son is 8years old he plays travel baseball and we purchased this bat after he tried several of the other bbcor models and didnt care for them. He is a big guy at 4'7 and 98lbs, solid contact hitter with a big swing. This bat is truly perfect for him! Nice balanced bat with no sting or vibration, the ball HOPS off the thing and theres plenty of sweet spot even when you get jammed up. Reccommend for a kid thats used to swinging hard and likes the balanced feel. A+ from us on product, cust service rocks and shipping was fast and free!
Cons: My son doesnt care for the bright color thats his one and only complaint.
Pros: It has great pop out of the wrapper.
Cons: My 11 year old cracked 2 of them in a matter of 6 weeks.
Pros: no sting great pop awsome grip
Cons: 1.85 oz heavier than supposed to be
Pros: Great bat. My son loves it
Pros: This bat has a huge sweet spot, and a lot of pop right out of the package!
Cons: None yet. But, we havent had good luck with big barrel composites up to this point.
Got a question about the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
What's the main difference between the Marucci Cat 6 and Cat 7?
While the overall design of these bats will be similar, the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBYC78) will feature several updates. The CAT 7 is made with an updated alloy material as well as the second generation AV2 Knob. The sweet spot found on the CAT 7 will also be larger than the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68).
If we order the bat grip with the bat, will you put it on the bat, or will we have to do that?
We do not put on the bat grips; they are sent as an accessory. The customer would need to apply the grip to the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68.
Do you get two bats for the price?
Any bat packs featuring the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 would get you the bat(s) listed at the one listed price.
These appear to be different than the original CAT 6. The graphics are different and I believe the original had a taper at the knob. Are these a newly designed CAT 6? How else are they different from the original?
The Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 we now have in stock do not have a flared knob style, and "Marucci" on the barrel is in grey instead of red. Other than that, these models would be the same as the previous model.
My son is 4'8" and 70 lbs. What size bat do you recommend?
Based on his height and weight, would recommend getting the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 in a 30 inch model as this bat is not made in a 29 inch.
My son is 13 years old, 5' tall and 95 lbs. He has been using (and really likes) the Adidas EQT 30" 22oz, but we can't find that bat for sale anywhere, even on your site which we have purchased over 10 bats from your company due to selection, price, and trust. Would you recommend the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (this would need to be USSSA certified as well) as an excellent alternate to the Adidas bat?
First off, we certainly appreciate your business and kind words. As for the recommendation, I believe this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 would be a great option as an alternative to the EQT. The Cat 6 will provide you with the same 30" 22oz. size, as well as an improved AZ3000 alloy for season-long durability and proven performance. This bat is USSSA certified.
My son is 13 years old 5'1" and 110 lbs. Would the 32 inch -8 be a good bat for him?
Based on his height and weight, we would suggest the 31" model in the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68. If you feel that your player has good bat speed and strength though you could certainly jump up to the 32".
My son is 12 and is 5'3" and 135 pounds. Would you recommend the 32" bat?
Based upon your player's height and weight, we would recommend going with an option of this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) in the 31" or 32" size. If you are feeling better with 32" option that will be just fine for use by your player as long as you feel he can handle the 24 oz weight of the 32" option.
I am looking at the Cat 6 and the XL3. I would appreciate any thoughts in comparing the two.
The Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 and the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 are both one-piece alloy bats. These two bats will feature different swing weights though. The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 will feature an end-loaded swing weight while the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 will have a balanced swing weight. The Marucci and its balanced swing weight will be beneficial for the player that is more of a contact hitter. It will feature a larger sweet spot but less concentrated in weight (sweet spot that is). The XL3 will benefit the power hitter more as the sweet spot on this bat will be smaller but more concentrated in weight. What this creates, is more of a pendulum/whip effect with regards to the barrel; thus creating more distance on balls that are centered on the sweet spot. A top heavy bat can cause top hand lag though. This barrel lag will lead to a slower swing and a bat path that is less ideal for making consistent/quality contact.
Can this bat be used in Little League Junior division?
Yes, this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) would be legal in the Junior Division of Little League Baseball.
How long will this bat typically last?
The lifespan on the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 will vary. Depending on the usage (bat used for all practice, games, batting practice, only one player using, etc), the weather (weather under 70 degrees can diminish the lifespan of a bat quicker) and whether or not the ball is hit on the barrel versus the end cap or towards the hands will all affect the bat's durability. With that being said, the average lifespan will be tough to pinpoint.
My 13 year old son is 5'4 and 110 lbs. What size bat would you suggest? Thanks.
Based upon your son's height and weight, I would recommend using a 31" Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68.
What is the weight distribution? Is it balanced or end loaded?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) has a -8 length to weight ratio and has a balanced weight distribution.
I am 66" (5'6) and 125 lbs. What size bat should I get?
I would suggest a 32" 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) based on your height and weight.
Is it legal in the Babe Ruth 13-15 division?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) features a fully alloy design with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and has the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp. These features make it legal for play in the Babe Ruth 13-15 year old division.
I am 12 years old. I am 4"11 and weigh 90lbs. What size should I get?
We would recommend a 30" in the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) for you.
Is this bat allowed for the Intermediate 50/70 division of Little League?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) will have the USSSA certification stamp and a big barrel. If your league allows big barrel bats, this would be perfect!
Does this bat come with a 2 3/4" barrel diameter?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is only available in a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. Marucci only makes the CAT 6 with a 2 3/4" barrel for the Coach Pitch version, the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6).
I'm 9 years old, 5'1" and weigh 148 pounds. I've been using a DeMarini Voodoo 30" 21 oz. How will it compare to the new Cat 6?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a one piece full alloy model featuring the AZ3000 Aerospace grade alloy. It will feature a more balanced swing weight than the Voodoo. Additionally, it will be quite a bit more stiff through the zone than the two-piece Voodoo.
I have twins that play 9 year old travel ball (kid pitch). They are about 1" and 5 lbs. of each other. The tallest is 54" and is about 68 lbs. We are currently using the Cat 5 27/17. One is the lead off hitter and the other is around 5th. They both are home run hitters. What would you suggest for the Spring? Would the CAT 6 be good for both? Should they have separate bats?
The 28" or 29" 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) would be ideal. It is great for power or contact hitters. The balanced design will allow for fast bat speeds. Also, the fully alloy design will not require any period of break-in.
I only buy Marucci bats for my 12yo. for the last 3 months he has been swinging a drop -3 Team Marucci. It's made him stronger, and he's hit a few shots, but he's not ready for it yet. What kind of results are reasonable to expect from his new Marucci CAT 6 drop -8?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a great bat for a player that age. It is a one-piece all alloy design like his TEAM model. The CAT 6 will be more balanced but with a larger sweet spot. I think you will see better results with this CAT 6 due to the larger sweet spot and the lighter weight which will help him get through the zone quicker with faster pitching.
Is this bat as balanced as the Black and will this bat last me about two years?
Given the countless ways and situations a bat can be used in, it is impossible to predict how long the bat will last for a player. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a durable model and it does come with a 12 month warranty to protect against breakage. The CAT 6 will be similarly balanced to the 2014 Marucci Black Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBB148).
I am 4'9",104 lbs, and I am 10 years old. I am swinging a DeMarini Voodoo 2014 and it is working well. I am wondering, which length do you think I should get?
Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 30" model in the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68).
Better bat: CAT 6 -8 or Easton XL3 -9, for an 11 year old contact hitter with power?
That will be a matter of preference. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) features a balanced swing weight, which is generally preferred by contact hitters. The XL3 features an end loaded design, which is normally preferred by power hitters. Since the player can hit for both power and contact, it will truly be up to them and if they can handle the additional end load of the XL3, or if they want to stay with a balanced model like the CAT 6. Both are great options to go with.
When will this Cat 6 Senior Bat (drop 8) be available for purchase?
The release date on the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is not official at this time, but it should be released around the first part of October.

Based on his size, I would recommend a 28" option of this 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10.
What is the difference between the 2017 and 2018 Rawlings Quatro Senior league bat and how does this bat compare to the Marrucci Cat 8?
Not much changed from the 2017 to the 2018 models of the Rawlings Quatro other than cosmetics. Both it and the Marucci Cat 8 are excellent bats that should rate near the top performers in their respective categories. In my opinion the Rawlings is slightly better balanced for contact hitters, while the Marucci Cat 8 is geared slightly more towards power hitters.
is 30/20 still up in -3
A 30" / 20oz option in the 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10 would be -10. The "drop" is designated as the bat's length minus its weight. A -3 bat in 30" would weigh 27 ounces. The -3 bats are labeled as BBCOR and legal for high school and collegiate players. The 2018 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB8Q3 would be the -3 option of this bat.
Do you have to break the bat in before using it in a game?
Yes, we recommend a break-in period for all composite material bats, including this 2017 Rawlings Quatro. Generally 150-200 swings off a tee or soft toss is enough to get a bat game ready.
I need this bat in a 31/28 , -3. Is that possible?
While this 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10 is a -10, the 2017 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB7Q4 was the -3 model but it is unfortunately a discontinued model and we no longer have stock of that bat.

The weight distribution between the 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10 and the CF Zen is pretty similar, as both are well balanced bats.
Does this bat require a break in period?
The 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10 is a two-piece fully composite baseball bat that will require a slight break in period. Most manufacturers are stating that the 2017 composite bats will feature more of a factory break-in in terms of the composite bats but we do hear that some customers feel that the current composites perform better after 100+ swings.
What size do you recommend for an 11 yr old who measures 5'2" and 105 lbs?

Can this bat be used in temperatures below 55 degrees?

Durability could come into play with composite bats a little earlier than an alloy bat in colder temperatures.
What size you would you recommend for 4'10", 90 pound, average strength 12 year old?
Based on that height and weight we would recommend a 30"/20 ounce 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7Q10).
Is this bat universally accepted in most leagues and tournaments?
The 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7Q10) is accepted in a lot of leagues and tournaments. I would not say universally because there is so many different leagues and league rules.

If you have questions about your specific league just reach out to us by phone, chat, or email and we will be able to help you out.
What is the difference between the Quatro and the Velo?
The 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7Q10) and the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL7V10) are going to be very different bats. The Rawlings Velo is going to be a one piece aluminum bat. It will have a stiff feel when hitting the ball due to its one piece design. The sound of the ball coming off the bat will be extremely loud, due to the Acoustic Alloy that Rawlings uses with this particular bat. The Rawlings Quatro is going to be a multi piece composite bat. It is going to have more flex than the Velo because it is not a one piece bat. Some vibration is lost with the Vibration Dampening Technology used in the Quatro. Both are high end, high performing bats. Whether a player preferred one or the other would be based off of personal preference.
Is this a two-piece bat?
Yes, the 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10 is a two-piece fully composite bat.
Is there a break-in period with this bat?
The 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10 is pretty hot out of the wrapper, but we still feel it benefits from a small break-in period. The best way to break it in is to take 50-100 swings off a tee, rotating the barrel about a quarter turn every few swings, and gradually working your swing speed up from about 50% to 100%.
Is this considered a big barrel?
Yes the 2017 Rawlings Quatro Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7Q10 is considered a big barrel bat.
