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.

Cons:  no Cons

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:  My son is 8 and absolutely loves this bat. He replaced his CAT 6 with the 2016 HEX Alloy. It is a very well designed bat with tremendous pop right out of the box. No break in period required. This bat has great balance and a very large sweet spot. My son's confidence has even improved with the use of this bat. The sound it makes on contact is awesome. I have been approached by many coaches and parents at tournaments inquiring about how they can get this bat. Marucci has done it again.

Pros:  My son is 8yrs old and has been using this bat since the summer. He old bat was a Easton Mako, he seemed to never get the drive off of his Mako. This Marucci has been a pleasant surprise. My son is not a bulky kid, he is actually small framed. But he is able to rip the ball with this bat. I watch him in batting practice with his coach and see a big difference with the way the ball travels off the bat now vs how it did with the Mako. I highly recommend this bat. The coach who is a former pro seems to be impressed with the bat as well after taking a few swings with it. The Marucci has been very impressive so far.

Cons:  None yet.

Pros:  Just got this bat this past weekend for my son who plays 10U travel ball. We went up in size from a 28/18 to a 29/19 but since the bat is so balanced he didn't really seem to notice the change. The bat has a lot of pop and a big sweet spot. First time swinging it he drove a outside pitch opposite field to the fence for a double. Oh, one of the teams we played had probably five or six of their players swinging the same bat.

Cons:  none

Pros:  Great pop right out of the wrapper. My son has a lot of confidence hitting this bat and the old school ping and he is hitting harder/longer than he did with his previous Easton composite bat. Other Kids are already asking to use it and how to get one themselves.

Cons:  None

Pros:  Pop out of the box, feel, balance

Cons:  My 11 year old son had this bat for 2 1/2 months. It didn't even see game use. Had great pop out of the box and gave him added distance over other alloy bats. Only used for training 2-3 times a week in warm weather and indoor facility. It got a 2 inch crack on the sweet spot. This was a replacement for the Elite, which he dented badly after 3 months of use. I'm done buying Marucci.

Pros:  My 8 year old son loves the 27 17. We received this bat as a warranty replacement for the Cat 6 that dented after 11 months of heavy use! We have a hitting station in our garage and he's taken this to the cages three times. He loves it. The bat is well balanced and gets through the zone quick. The pop off this bat is ridiculous! He likes it better than the Cat 6 and it is hotter in my opinion. He took it to the field last week and is absolutely roping the ball!

Cons:  None

Pros:  My son used the Easton S3 '13-'15 models the last three seasons with great success. He's a line drive/power hitter that prefers one piece alloy over composite. The '16 Marucci Hex Alloy is very similar in performance and has held up well through many batting sessions so far. It's by far the most popular "hot" bat in the Houston area...seems like every team has a few in their lineups. The "ping" off the bat is a head turner!!!

Cons:  Grips ok, but replaced with Lizard skin.

Pros:  I can't honestly rate the durability because the bat just arrived today but I have to or the site won't take my review. Our first time out I was diving for cover on the pitchers mound and watching my son send balls into the outfield or rip burning grounders. This bat is the real deal. One of our baseballs is now completely misshapen. This bat could add some serious fun to our season.

Cons:  None that I can see, hope the bat holds up over time.

Pros:  I will agree with other reviewing posts that the ball does have a lot more pop than the Easton S1 my son was using. It also has that distinctive sound that turns heads. The weight is balanced, but odd. The bat just cracked, but Marucci warranty has already contacted me about getting it back to them for replacement.

Cons:  After 8 months of use my son literally opened up a 4 inch crack right in the sweet spot. He's not a power hitter and he doesn't share the bat with the team so this is all one kid use. We made sure that he didn't use it during cold weather and it was stored inside to eliminate environmental fatigue.

Pros:  Great pop out of the box, balanced feel, good customer service

Cons:  Absolutely no durability! My 12 year old has destroyed two of these bats. First one was a replacement for an Elite, which dented in a half season's use. The first Hex cracked within 2 months of use. Good customer service sent us a second one, which was an exception to their policy. We took it out of the box last weekend, and it had two huge dents within the first 20 swings. All hitting done in warm weather/indoor facilities with real baseballs. If your kid swings hard and has some power, avoid this bat! The pop and feel of this bat are great out of the box, but I will not be buying any more Marucci bats.

Pros:  I coach a 10u team, and help out with a 12u team. Both groups have had amazing success with this bat. I have never left a bat review before, but this has been absolutely incredible. The pop and the durability have been terrific. We are careful with the bat - don't let it get too cold. And it's held up great so far, about 15 games into the season.

Cons:  None so far, through 15 games.

Pros:  My son plays 9u ball and this is his first 2 3/4 bat. I purposely made him learn to swing on a 2 1/4 so he was not relying on a big sweet spot. When he used this for the first time with BP the ball jumped off the bat. The whole team, including myself was pretty amazed! Highly Recommended. We will see about durability. My son is not a hard swinger, but has very sound mechanics. (Side note: this bat has so much pop I was pitching from the mount to him and he hit a liner right back at me. I had no time to react and the ball hit my wrist. I was impressed with the hit, mad I got hammered by a ball. I hope that this doesn't happen in a game and he hits a pitcher....)

Cons:  None so far.

My son is playing travel ball and there are no bat regulations. Which bat will have more distance, the Cat7 bbcor or the non bbcor bat?

Any USSSA bat will have a higher level of performance when compared to a BBCOR because of the certifications in place. Therefore, this 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 would be allowed to perform better than the Cat 7 BBCOR model.

I am looking at purchasing the Cat 7 for my 9 year old who plays travel baseball. He takes a lot of swings. This might be a silly question, but is there a typical swing amount that a bat will be good for before it needs replaced? Maybe its 10,000 swings or something? Not sure if the manufacturers place a swing 'life' estimate on these bats or not. Thanks!

Unfortunately, all bats will not have an exact life span and would be more depending on the exact model. The 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 will be one of the more durable bats on the market and will have a long longevity.

Would you recommend the Cat 7 or the Hex Connect for the same price? I know one is alloy and one is composite. But, which one is considered the better bat?

It would be hard to say one is better than the other with performance between the two being very similar, but one may be better based on the attributes you're looking for. The 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 has been the more popular bat, and will be hot out of the wrapper with its alloy construction. The 2017 Marucci Hex Connect Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBHCX10 will be a little lighter to swing and will have a little longer barrel, but will need to be broken in before you see peak performance.

The Rawlings VELO and the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 will be very similar bat because of both are going to be one piece alloy construction as well as being both very balanced bats.

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.

Is there really a big difference between the 27"/17 oz bat and the 28"/18 oz. I know it's a different weight and length but can you really tell?

That would depend on the player. Some players may notice the difference, some may not at all. Generally the amount they notice or the amount it affects them depends on how strong the player in question is.

Son is 7, 4'6" and weighs 80 pounds, plays coach pitch AAA. He has a CAT 7 black edition 27/17 now. The bat coach says a 29 inch, is that too big of a jump for him?

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.

What length/drop should I get for my son who plays 10u travel ball? He is about to turn 10 and is 4'10 and weighs 60lbs. He is swinging a Marucci Cat 7 27/-10 now.

Given your player's specifications, I would recommend either the 29" or 30" option of this 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10. Furthermore, given your player's age, I would not look to move to a -8 option until they are a little bit older and have had a chance to strengthen their 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.

My 8 year old is 4'10" and 85lbs. What length bat would you recommend?

I would recommend a 30 inch bat for your player. That would mean 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 in a 30" length will weigh 20 ounces. In my opinion, this option might be slightly too heavy for your 8 year old player. If that is the case, I would consider going down one inch and one ounce to a 29/19.

Both the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10 and the Solo 618 will offer you the same one-piece alloy construction. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Per your son's height and weight, we would recommend using the Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 in a 28 inch model. If you feel his bat speed would be slowed down considerably using a 28 inch model then there is certainly nothing wrong with going down one inch and one ounce.

(1) From my understanding, this can be used in Top Gun travel ball, but can not be used in Little League Recreation ball; is that correct? (2) Also, my son is 9 yrs old and he is 4'7" and 65 pounds. I was thinking about the 29"/19 oz size. Is that what you would recommend?

(1) This 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) features USSSA 1.15 BPF certification and a 2 3/4" barrel diameter.

My son is just under 100 lbs and is 5'3" playing 14U this fall/next spring. We need a drop 5 or 3 - makes a lot of contact but doesn't hit for power. Used a 31/19 for most of the season and 31/21 when we faced slower pitching. We need something that is not end loaded. Was looking at this bat or any other bat you suggest. Also, do you think we should consider dropping to a 30" now that the bat is going to be much heavier?

You could definitely drop to a 30" if you feel like it was needed. But I think he will be fine with a 31". I would highly recommend the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10. It is a very balanced bat and will feel light.

What size bat do you recommend for my son. He's 4'10" and 75 lbs.

Based on your son's height and weight, I would recommend that he swing a 30" length. That would be a 30" 20 oz. in this particular model of the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10.

If I am correct. a Junior Big Barrel bat has a thinner wall than a Senior League Big Barrel bat. Does this mean a JBB bat will be hotter and have more of a trampoline effect than a SLBB bat? If this stands true, the Marucci CAT 6 JBB will be hotter and have more trampoline effect than the Marucci Hex Alloy SLBB.

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 will have thicker barrel walls than the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6. In essence, the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 would be hotter as it will feature thinner barrel walls compared to the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10. However, the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 is designed for coach pitch only leagues as these thinner barrel wall bats will dent very easily and become defective when velocity is over 40 MPH. Also, a Junior Big Barrel bat is designed for younger players who will not be able to generate as much bat speed as high bat speed can also lead to the bat becoming defective in a short amount of time.

My son is 13 years old. Is this bat legal for Pony League play? If so, is the youth version also legal?

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is not legal for play in Pony. Pony does not allow the barrel diameter to exceed 2 5/8". The youth 2 1/4" barrel option is legal for play in the Pony division of Pony though.

Would this be a good bat for my 10 year old who's playing in the Majors Division of Little League?

If your player is in the Majors Division of Little League, this bat will not be legal as it has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. I would recommend viewing the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Youth Baseball Bat (MYBHA12) which has a legal 2 1/4" barrel diameter.

What would the difference between this bat (MSBAHAX10) and the MSBX1014-R Red bat that would make us decide between the two?

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is going to feature the AZ4X alloy construction; the construction of this bat will be more durable than the AZ3000 alloy in the Marucci ONE Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBX1014-R Red. Other than that, both bats are good bats to consider and are going to perform similarly. Both bats are one-piece alloy designs with balanced swing weights.

What would be a benefit getting the 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter bat instead of 2 3/4"?

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 in a 2 3/4 inch barrel would give a player a greater chance of being able to miss hit a ball and still get good distance/feel on the batted ball. The benefit of the 2 5/8 inch barrel would be that this is the barrel size one would have to use in high school and college and also makes players focus more as a poorly hit ball on this barrel size will not be as forgiving as on the 2 3/4 inch barrel.

Would you recommend this bat for my son who plays 12u travel baseball for a AAA team? He's a good line drive and contact hitter but is looking for more power.

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) is a one-piece alloy design and this design would be a good option for a power type hitter as the one-piece allows for a stiffer feel. If you wanted to get the "prototypical" power hitter bat, it would be a one-piece bat (either alloy or composite) with an end-loaded swing weight.

My 7 year old swings a 28 inch 18 ounce Rawlings 5150 with a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter and I was looking for a new one or switching to a different alloy. We will be sticking with -10 and was wondering if the Marucci would be an upgrade?

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) compares well with the 2016 Rawlings 5150 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL5R34). Given their similarities, it would be tough to say if one would be an upgrade over the other as this would be a matter of preference.

Would you recommend this Marucci MSBAHAX10 or the new 2016 RIP IT for my soon to be 10 year old who is 4 foot 6 and weighs 70 pounds? The last two years he used a 28 inch black RIP IT from 2014.

Both the 2016 RIP-IT Element ONE Senior League Big Barrel Baseball Bat (SL10B) and the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) are nice options. They are extremely similar by design, so the preference would come down to which style you prefer.

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 and the 2016 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16S310 are both excellent baseball bats. Both bats are going to be a -10 one-piece alloy design with a balanced swing weight and similar price tag.

Will this bat dent with rubber cage balls? Is their a warranty against denting?

While the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) is covered for denting under warranty, you would still not want to use yellow dimpled cage balls with it as it can cause damage that you would not see with actual softballs.

Which bat would be better for a 2 or 3 hole hitter who hits for contact but has power. My son is 5 foot 5 and weighs 117 pounds. Would a 31 inch 21 ounce be okay? Also, how does this Marucci Hex bat compare to the Rawlings Prodigy Hybrid with whip technology? The AZX4 alloy vs prodigy alloy?

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) and the 2016 Rawlings Prodigy Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (SLRP34) compare extremely closely. That size should work well for your player. The preference between the two would come down to brand or style preference. Both are nice options.

What exactly does "Maximum Barrel Length" mean?

Marucci"s new AZ4X Alloy allowed the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) to be designed with an all-aluminum barrel that matches the length and size of most composite bats out on the market, but performs at peak limits right out of the wrapper without worrying about a break-in period. Generally, only composite barrel bats are able to be produced with longer and bigger barrel lengths without making the bat end loaded.

What does 'ring-free barrel technology' do?

This feature allows the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) to offer players maximum trampoline effect and more power.
