Pros:  Bat is well balanced, bought this bat for my 13 year old playing elite travel ball. Very Good Pop, well balanced bat. Have had many different bats including Marucci Elite, Mako, etc over past few years and this seems to stand toe to toe at a slightly lower price point. Only feedback I am interested in from others is how this compares to the Marucci Cat 6 elite version which is a little higher price but haven't seen any comparisons yet.

Cons:  None so far, Don't know about durability yet only used in a few games.

Pros:  Very Balanced Good Price Point No sting

Cons:  Very Little Pop and a small sweet spot Bought this bat for my son who has been using an Anderson Techzilla and Rip-It Air for travel. The Rip-It broke in half in batting practice, so someone told us to go with the Marucci Cat 6. He found this to be a really dead bat, with about a 4 inch sweet spot, so now it sits in my garage. My son wishes that Anderson would make a big barrel Techzilla!

Pros:  My 13 year old son really likes this bat. Perfect weight for him and easy change next year to drop 3. Good Pop and seems very good for durability for right now. He has been hitting it for about 2 month with lots of reps. He plays 13AAA & 14AA. I might just buy another one to keep in his bag in case something happens to this one.

Cons:  None so far.

Pros:  This bat has a large sweet spot and I cannot complain about the pop. I have broken many bats over my time as a player but this one has not broken after a year of grinding. I do not feel any sting when I mis-hit the ball off of the end or the handle.

Cons:  It has a large handle and a large barrel making a feel that was just not right for me. I would not buy another one for this reason alone, but most people prefer large handles and would love this bat.

My son is 10 years old. He is currently using an Easton S3 which is 29 inches long and 19 oz. Which CAT6 bat would be the best for him? He is about 56 inches tall. He is pretty strong for his age. Also, what barrel size?

At this time we currently only have the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC65 in a 32 inch 27 ounce bat. This size bat will be better suited for a player that is in 8th grade or a year away from having to use BBCOR bats. Based on your son's height, we would recommend going with a 30 inch or possibly a 31 inch bat. As for the weight, that is determined by how he is currently handling the 19 ounce bat. Typically, when increasing weight we suggest increasing it no more than 1 to 2 ounces. And barrel size, make sure the barrel size you are looking into is allowed for use. A lot of leagues do not allow the 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter.

My son is 13 and weighs 80 lbs. He swings a 31 inch 20 ounce but needs a big barrel bat now. What do you recommend?

The correct length to get your son the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC65 in would be based on his height. As for the weight, this is going to be determined more by the current weight of the bat he is using and how that is treating him. If bat speed is not lacking, then a small increase (1 to 2 ounces) might be a good idea. To get a better idea of bat size, please refer to our bat coach at: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

My son is 13. He is 5'6", but light at 100 lbs. He wants a -5, 32"/27 oz bat. He does not have to use a -5 until this fall, but he wants to start this spring with the heavier bat. What are your thoughts on the 31" or 32" with his size?

Based upon your player's height and weight, our general suggestion would be to get a 31" model of Senior League/Youth Big Barrel Bat. However, if you feel that your player can handle the 27 oz weight of the 32" model of this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65), then that size would be just fine for use!

I'm around 5'6", 190 lbs and moving up to middle school. What size? Also, would this be a good bat or would the Easton XL3 be better?

Based upon your height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of going with the longest 32" model of this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65). As long as you can handle the 27 oz weight of the 32" model, you should be just fine with that size option of this bat. If you wanted more of an end-loaded bat, then I might recommend looking more towards the XL3 as this CAT 6 will be very balanced in its swing weight.

My son is ready to move from a balanced bat (he currently swings Velo) to an end-loaded bat. I am concerned the Voodoo is too big of a jump. Is there a "slightly" end loaded option?

Whether bats like the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65) feel end-loaded or how much of an end-load is felt can vary from player to player. Some may feel that it does while others will not. There is not a bat that they specifically list as a slight end-load.

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65) and the Marucci Team preBCOR Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBT5) compare very closely in terms of design. The Cat 6 may be a bit better balanced which can help create quicker bat speed. Other than that, they will perform very similarly.

My 13 year old son currently swings the Marucci Black 2 -8. Is the Cat 6 a similar bat for feel and balance?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65) and the Marucci Black 2 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBB28) will have similarly balanced designs but may feel weighted differently due to the difference in drop weight. The CAT 6 and the Black 2 will have different feel to them because the Black 2 is a two-piece design that will flex a bit more while the CAT 6 is more stiff.

How would this compare to a DeMarini NVS Vexxum or Voodoo? My contact hitting son is currently swinging the CAT 5 Squared in -8. I understand this is a one-piece, as opposed to the two-piece DeMarini's. From a performance, balance, and swing weight stand point which is better?

If your boy is already using the CAT 5 model, the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65) would be a great choice! It is fully one-piece in design. Made from 100% alloy materials. It will also feel very comfortable and deflect much of the hand sting on mishits. It will feel slightly stiffer compared to the DeMarini Vexxum NVS. Both are very balanced in swing weight and will provide similar pop and performance.

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65) would be an excellent option for a balanced bat. Easton's "S" lineup, DeMarini Vexxum or CF series, or the Rawlings VELO are all good balanced bat options.

Can you give me some opinions on the CAT 6 vs. RIP-IT AIR? Differences and similarities.

Both the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65) and 2014 RIP-IT AIR Senior League Baseball Bat (B1405) would be pretty comparable in design. Both are balanced, one-piece alloy models that utilize technology that optimizes the barrel wall thickness to achieve that balanced feel. The RIP-IT models uses a Contact Grip to help reduce the vibration often experience with one-piece bats. And the CAT 6 features Marucci's patented Anti-Vibration Knob to eliminate that sting. If you're interested in the RIP-IT model, it's backed by a 30 Day Love It or Return It Program through RIP-IT which would allow you to try the bat out, risk-free.

How does the CAT 6 compare to the Black? Is the CAT 6 balanced or end loaded? We had great success at the plate with the Easton S3 -10 at a younger age, but we need a -5 now. We are looking for something comparable.

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC65) will not be end loaded. It will have an extended barrel length and feel very balanced. The Black is also balanced and will feature a composite handle and an alloy barrel. The CAT 6 will be fully alloy. Either bat will feel very comfortable and be very high performing.

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League (MSBC65) will have a larger sweet spot compared to the Marucci Team and Elite models which will translate into better performance. Marucci has made some minor changes to the AZ3000 Alloy to improve the durability of the bat.

How does this bat compare to the DeMarini CF8 bat that was discontinued?

The CF8 from DeMarini was a two-piece, all-composite bat with a very balanced swing feel to it. This 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBHCY5) is a two-piece, hybrid bat with more of an end-loaded feel. I think both bats are really high performing, but you will need to decide if you like the end-loaded feel on this Hex Connect before buying it.

My 12 yr old is 5'2" and weighs 127 lbs. He will be using a drop -8 Easton Ghost X for Little League. We want a travel bat that will prepare him for the next step (but also show some performance). Is this a good option for him?

This 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBHCY5) will be an extremely high performing USSSA 1.15 bat. Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend a 31"/26 oz size. As long as the 26 oz size manageable for him, I think that this bat will show good performance and prep him for the BBCOR -3 bats he will have to use in high school.

The 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCY5 features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, which is the same size as BBCOR bats that are required in high school.

Do you know what type of grip is on the Hex Connect? Is it a Lizard Skins grip?

Which bat would you recommend for a small 14u travel baseball player, the Marucci Hex -5 or the DeMarini Voodoo -5?

Player preference is important in these products. Both are good bats and will perform great. However, the 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBHCY5) is a two piece fully composite while the Voodoo is a two piece hybrid. The decision will be based on the design of the bats.

My son plays travel ball in Nations and USSSA and is moving to 13U. My understanding is that bat rules are changing Jan 1. Will this bat be legal?

The bat rules are changing for AABC, Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken, Dixie, Little League, and Pony. All bats used in those leagues will need the new USA stamp on them. However, USSSA bat rules are not changing so the 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCY5 will be legal for next year.

Are there specific break-in instructions for this bat?

The best way to break in the 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCY5, or any other composite bat for that matter, would be to hit off a tee or soft toss for roughly 150-250 swings at about 60% max swing rate. After each swing one will need to rotate the barrel a 1/4 turn.

My son is moving from little league to a travel ball team. Looking at 2 5/8", -5 marucci. Should I get him a 30" or 31"? He's 5' tall, 90 lbs.

Based on his current height and weight, I would suggest a 30" 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCY5.

What does end loaded mean? What makes this bat so good? Is it better than the CAT 7? I make really good contact and good power but not a ton. Does this bat have a lot of pop? Or can you tell me some bats that have the most pop?

(1) An end-loaded bat is one that will have more weight towards the end of the barrel. Essentially, these bats have smaller sweet spots but the ideal hitting area is tuned higher since you have more weight to work with in the sweet spot. (2) What makes the 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCY5 a popular bat is the two-piece design with a balanced swing weight. This makes the bat much easier to swing and the two-piece design will help reduce vibration from off-centered hits. (3) There is no physical evidence that would show this bat is better than the CAT 7. (4) It is hard to say how much pop this bat has as "pop" is one of personal opinion.

Is this bat a balanced bat or end loaded? How would you compare to the Combat MAXUM -5?

The 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCY5 features a balanced swing weight. It is comparable to the MAXUM as well. However, the Hex Connect is a two-piece design and the MAXUM is a one-piece design.

Does this bat flex like a composite or is it stiff like an aluminum barrel?

The 2017 Marucci Hex Connect is a two-piece, fully composite bat. The two-piece design will let the bat flex more during the swing than a one-piece design.

Does it have great pop and does it increase your bat speed?

All early indications are that the 2017 Marucci Hex Connect -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCY5 does have good pop. As for increasing one's bat speed, there is not a bat that will do that except going to a lighter bat or physical development on the player's behalf; as one physically gets stronger then they will be able to swing a bat faster.

Description for Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC65
When the CAT 5 burst onto the baseball scene, it became one of the top aluminum bats on the market. This year, Marucci raises the stakes again with unbelievable new technology in the CAT 6. Through endless field testing with the top players in America, Marucci discovered that vibration in the top hand is the most common complaint amongst amateur baseball players. Marucci has acquired a patented new anti-vibration technology that blows the competition away. They hired noted bat scientist Dr. Daniel A. Russell to do some lab testing against the top bats on the market. The results were shocking. He found that the vibration dampening rate on the CAT 6 is 5.6 times higher than the next closest competitor! For the player, this means that they can step up to the plate worry-free with one thing on their mind; blasting one over the fence! This is literally the smoothest swinging bat ever produced. Experience the difference of this one-piece bat made from the most responsive alloy in the industry. Marucci: Game Tested. Player Approved. This bat features the USSSA BPF 1.15 Stamp.
