The Marucci Bat Company takes pride in turning top quality wooden baseball bats in the same tradition and precise technique of the earliest bat companies. Every Marucci Bat is cut, calibrated, balanced, buffed and lacquered by hand. The Marucci Bat Company uses top grade Maple billets cut from selected, naturally grown trees in Pennsylvania forests. This selection process insures the highest possible grade of wood for each bat. The Marucci Bat Company bats are 100 percent handmade or turned in small batches from an original design, then finished and detailed by hand. Each model is made to exacting specifications maximizing balance and ease of handling. The Marucci Bat Company uses an Ultra Penetrating Stain that provides the best possible finish for your next Marucci Bat. Most impressive is the Bone Rubbing technique that The Marucci Bat Company uses. `Boning` bats began in the earliest days of baseball with players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. These Hall-of-Famers would spend hours in their dugouts rubbing their bats with old cow femur bones. Bone Rubbing closes the wood`s pores, compressing it and making it harder. Marucci uses the same technique on their bats, rubbing before the finish is applied to seal and harden the wood. Just another example of how Marucci takes the same pride in their bats as our baseball heroes once did. Experience the excellence of a Marucci Bat.

add_circle_outlinePros: Great bat! Very solid and well balanced. I treat myself to a new Marucci each season and this one is one of my favorites. I've owned the AP5 (which is similar to a 243), TH17 ( which is similar to a 271), and the CU26 which seems to be a mix of the two. Long story short you won't be disappointed!
remove_circle_outlineCons: It's wood so chances are it will probably break one day.
add_circle_outlinePros: Got this bat with the black for an extra $50 from maruccisports.com it is an amazing bat bone rubbing is one of the most genius ideas ever has way more pop then any lousivle slugger and will last twice as long
add_circle_outlinePros: Big barrel
very durable and does not break easy
I was nervous getting this bat didnt want to pay 120 and it break early and it has not yet my teammate recommended it to me since he had his for three years and it still hasnt broke and i am 100% satisfied with this bat.
add_circle_outlinePros: It's like hitting a metal bat. It is so balanced and the ball jumps outof the bat. I have a Chandler bat, a Birch Louisville bat, an SSK Robinson Cano, an Old Hickory and a Sam Bat, and none of them has the performance of this one.
remove_circle_outlineCons: It get marks on it everytime you hit the ball.
add_circle_outlinePros: I have swung almost all of the marucci pro models. This is a great bat and ranks 2nd out of the player models. The best being the AP5. This bat has great pop and a great feeling handle on the thinner side.
remove_circle_outlineCons: Large barrel meaning it is less compact, which isn't a con if you prefer a large barrel bat.
add_circle_outlinePros: Handle is thin which I prefer, it has a very balanced swing weight to go with it. The finish is a little slick so I would suggest putting a grip or tape around the handle. I would recommend this bat to all ages, it truly can be used for power and contact hitters it just depends on what the hitter prefers. Overall it is a great wood bat and I would highly recommend it.
remove_circle_outlineCons: After about 5 months of use the bat did break on soft toss but no wood bat lasts forever and that should not keep you from buying it.

The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult is going to be an approximate -3 length to weight ratio. With wood they are not able to get an exact weight because each piece of wood will be slightly different but it will be right around a -3.
I'm 5'11, 150 pounds. What size bat would you recommend for me?
Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 32" model of the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult.
What bat would you recommend to a 5'8, 180 pound player, that's looking for a quick light bat but will still send it far?
Based on your height and weight, The general recommendation is that you use a 33" bat and 30 oz. However, if you want a quick light bat, you could go down one size to a 32" 29 oz bat.
How does the CU26B compare to the Victus V243?
This Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat (CU26B Adult) will be more balanced in its feel when compared to the Victus Pro Reserve V243 Maple Wood Baseball Bat (VRWMV243) which is designed to be end-loaded in its feel.
How does this bat compare to the Cutch 22 model? Handle Taper? Sweet spot? Weight? Barrel size?
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult will feature a balanced swing weight like the CUTCH22. The handle diameter and barrel diameter will be roughly the same as well as there is no difference in sweet spot size. The differences between the two bats will be the knob design and the taper of the bat. The CUTCH22 will have a large tapered knob and the taper will start sooner on the barrel. This will cause the CUTCH22 model to not feel as balanced as the Utley model.
What's a similar turning model of the CU26 for other brands?
The Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult features a similar turn model to that of a 271. Any 271 turn model from another manufacture should compare favorably to this Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult.
Is the CU26 model closer to an I13 or a 243?
This Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat (CU26B Adult) will feature a balanced swing feel. Therefore, it will not feel similarly to the end-loaded I13 or 243 bats. The closest wood bats to which you can compare the CU26 will be the 110 and 271 bats.
I"m 5"11 185 lbs gap to gap / power hitter. 33' is beginning to feel small for me, so should I go up to a 34'? Also, I love the feel of this CU26. What one piece metal bats would have the same kind of feel?
Based on your height and weight we would recommend swinging the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult in a 33" size for you. However, that is based on standard height and weights and if you felt that you personally could swing a 34" you can absolutely do that. The 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 will offer a similar feel to the CU26.
I read through these questions. Sometimes you say this bat is more balanced than the Cutch22 and other times you say this is more end loaded. Which is it?
The main difference between the Marucci Chase Utley Maple Wood Baseball Bat: CU26B Adult and the CUTCH22 will be the knob design and the taper of the bat. The CUTCH22 will have a large tapered knob, therefore the taper will start sooner on the barrel. As a result, this will cause the CUTCH22 model to be not quite balanced as the CU26B model.
Is the CU26 a -2, or a -3?
Adult wood bats will fall somewhere between -2 and -3, as the wood density can vary ever so slightly from model to model. The CU26 is no exception, so we can't say for certain if it will be a -2 or -3. It will be somewhere in that range however.
