Pros: As the coach of a high level travel ball program, I have always been a fan of Marucci's wood bats. I am very happy to see that marucci has come out with a high performing composite design for the youth market. This bat hits every bit as good as the Eastons and Demarinis and my players think it feels better. I HIGHLY recommend this bat.
Pros: This barrel is huge! The sweet spot is literally twice the size of every other bat i've had. The composite has amazing pop. I thought this would have been end loaded, but it really isn't bad at all. Very easy to swing and the ball flies off this thing. Best composite big barrel I've had.
Pros: I watched this bat hit 9 hr's in 2 games, 5 of which came against my team! The ball absolutely explodes off this bat. My kids love the look, feel and even the sound of the bat; all of which are unique in a good way. Kudos to Marucci on their first composite bat.
Cons: I wish I had been the first to find this bat
Pros: The weight is evenly distributed, fantastic pop on contact, very nice grip, big hitting surface, it's full composite.
My 8 year old is a contact hitter with speed, he gets this bat around quick for great pop on the ball. My son is a big fan of the black and neon green too, it stands out so much that I have had other parents ask me what kind of bat is that and where did you get it :) I've probably sold a few of them by how much praise I give this bat.
Remember...it's a contact evenly balance big sweet spot bat. It's not end weighted.
Pros: The Bat is hot out of the wrapper. My son who is 11 loves the bat. He has around 800 hundreds swings on the bat and it is still holding up. The performance of the bat seems to good to be true. Typically composites will fail just about the time the ball really starts to fly off the bat. It is still early in the season..
Pros: My son is 11 and plays competitive ball at the Major level. Each year we have purchased the new "hot bat". Last year we purchased the extremely over priced Mako,which I have to say was easily the biggest let down to date. We were able to demo the HEX composite. We quickly ordered one. The bat has a ton of pop out of the wrapper. My son is a power hitter and traditionally used a -9 end loaded bat. Initially I was concerned about changing to a -10 well balanced bat. I felt that he would loose the ability to hit the long ball. He quickly removed that concern. This bat is for contact hitters as well as power hitters. It comes down to one fact , MARUCCI JUST GOT IT RIGHT!!!! Plain and simple. Maybe all the big name brands should narrow their focus to producing quality instead of quantity. Invest a little more in R&D instead of advertising. IF YOU BUILD IT,THEY WILL COME!!!!!!
Pros: Now that my son has used this bat for four tournaments and 10 practices I feel I can write a review of the Marucci Hex Composite 29/19. He plays on a 9u travel team that spends most of their time in the gold major bracket. He's 4'9" and about 90 lbs. He's been a power hitter since tee ball and likes a balanced bat. He has tried alot of bats:
Easton big barrel Mako
Easton small barrel Mako
He says the Hex feels most like his small barrel Mako. Balanced with a light swing wieght. He hits the ball consistently 180-190ish feet. With the Hex the ball gets to the fence VERY fast. To break it in we went to the batting cage and I threw him about 400 balls one afternoon. The sound of the bat has that nice composite "crack" to it. He doesn't wear batting gloves and loves the way grip feels. No bat sting. No paint chipping. This bat puts a smile on my kid's face every time. It's his favorite big barrel. Awesome bat guys!!!
Cons: You don't see a lot of these bats at the park. I believe Marucci has priced themselves out of a larger market share.
Pros: My son loved this bat right out of the package. It had great pop and he loved the feel of the bat.
Cons: I had the first bat overnight for a Tuesday morning delivery. I left work early to take him to a cage before a game. The bat cracked in two places with 45 mph pitching on a 68 degree day. I sent it back to Marucci and they overnighted me a new one. I was extra carful to do the old style break in by hitting into a net very lightly, rotating the bat. We went to a tournament seeing 70 mph pitching and the second bat lasted four games before breaking in half. This looks to be a great bat for smaller kids and 50-55 mph pitching. I would not recommend it for high level ball. Marucci was great in sending bats and trying to come with a solution.
Cons: durability is poor. bought one, hit about 1000 balls and cracked. sent back. recieved a replacement, hit about another 1000 balls and cracked again. not for a kid that has power. this was a 30- drop 10. suggest a cat 6 or something more durrable.
Pros: Superior feel and pop with trampoline effect
Large sweet spot
Forgiving for mishits
Cons: We've had three on our team this year and all have cracked in the barrel. Marucci knows this is a problem and recommended the Hex Alloy. That bat has similar feel and pop and doesn't need to be broken in. Warranty replacements are great and come back within a week.
Pros: Great pop best out there... Love the grip... Very good looking bat.
Cons: Cost.... Durability is awful 1st bat cracked after 1 month sent it back told me to go up a size so I did and after 4 months of average use and then bat cracked again really not good... So ended up buying a combat bat
Cons: Bat cracked on two sides on the first day. My son is 11 years old and only 70 lbs. I read that the bat had issues with cracking, but didn't think my son was strong enough. It was 75 degrees out so coldness wasn't the issue. Bat cracked after about 30 hits. Buyer beware!
Pros: I have read all of the reviews on this bat and think it's crazy all the complaining about the bat and small cracks.. Do most of you dad's not know that composite bats aren't broke in all the way until you start putting small cracks in them? My son is 8 and about 60 lbs, plays 8U KP. He swings a 29/19 and hits absolute missiles with this bat now that it has a few cracks in it. It takes 600+ hits on this bat to really break it in. We have two of these and the sound and speed of the batted ball is completely different once broken in!!
Cons: Takes too long to really break it in! Some advice would be to have dad take about 200-300 3/4 swings with it before even handing to your kid. Once this bat breaks in there isn't a comparable bat on the market.

Is a 27" okay for my 7 year old? He is about 52 lbs and is just barely over 4 feet.
Asked by Joel
I would recommend the Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC1410 in a 28 inch bat length. If you do not think your player can handle a 28" bat, I would recommend dropping down to the 27 inch option.

Would you suggest this bat for a 10-year-old who is a really good contact hitter or would you suggest the hex alloy?
Asked by slim
Both the Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC1410a and the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 would be great bats to consider for a player who is 10 years old and is more of a contact hitter. The balanced feel of both make this bat easier to control - a perfect fit for the contact hitter. As for the bat to select, it really comes down to your personal preference with regards to alloy or composite.
Between the 15 Hex composite and the 16 Hex alloy which has more durability? Also does weather have something to do with durability?
Asked by flamethrower
The 2015 Hex Composite and the Hex 16 will be different in design. The composite model will be higher performing compared to the alloy once the composite fibers are broken-in. In colder weather games both bats will have a higher chance of denting or cracking due to the ball becoming harder which causes higher stress on the barrel.
Between the 15 Hex Composite and the 16 Hex alloy which has more pop?
Asked by dices64
"Pop" is more of a term that is associated with the skill of the player rather than a measurable feature of the bat. Due to performance restrictions imposed for safety reasons, most bats within the same certification category will perform to the same level at their peak. The difference, and what you end up paying for, is the feel of the bat (balanced vs. end-loaded, one-piece vs two-piece, barrel size, etc.) and the durability of the bat (how long the bat will perform at that peak level). Which one is best would depend on what you are looking for in those aspects compared to the price range you are looking to stay in.
Alloy barrel bats tend to dull faster than composite models which allows composite bats like the 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410) to have more prolonged and consistent performance over time. Alloy bats will be hotter out of the wrapper but may not last as long at the peak performance level.
Is this bat end loaded or balanced
Asked by James
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410) is a balanced bat.
You are advertising this as a 2 piece but it looks like a 1 piece. Could you verify that?
Asked by JK
Yes, the Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410) is a two-piece full composite design. It features a seamless technology which is the reason why it looks like a one-piece.
Why do power hitters favor end loaded bats?
Asked by steve
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite (MSBC1410) has a balanced swing weight. End loaded models allow stronger hitters to create more momentum when they take the barrel through the hitting zone. The more momentum they can generate, the more power they should be able to create.
Is this bat approved for Little League play?
Asked by Rays
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410) is not approved for any division in Little League baseball as it has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter and is a composite model that does not feature the BBCOR performance certification mark.
I am thinking of purchasing the Marucci Hex Composite (-10) youth bat...28 inches and 18oz. I bought a Easton composite bat last season and we just could not get it pop when the kids hit. Will this bat be different?
Asked by kenny
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410), and all composite bats take 150-200 swings rotating them a quarter of an inch on each swing to break them in, and to get them to their peak performance.
How does this bat compare to the 2015 Louisville 915 full composite? Does it have the same sweet spot?
Asked by Ed
Comparing the 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410) to the 2015 Louisville Slugger Prime 915 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLP915X), the Hex has a slightly larger sweetspot because it does not incorporate a connection point like the three-piece design on the Prime. So it has a bigger sweet spot but less sting and vibration protection than the Prime.
Is this bat more end-loaded or balanced? Does it compare more to the Easton XL1 or Easton MAKO? Does it favor the power hitter or contact hitter?
Asked by littleleaguepop
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410) is a very well-balanced bat, so it would be more similar to the MAKO in that aspect. Typically, a contact hitter will gravitate toward a balanced bat, but a power hitter could still swing this bat effectively if they preferred a more balanced bat.
When will the 2 5/8" barrel version be available?
Asked by YankeesXV
Unfortunately, we don't have an expected release date for that at this point. Marucci is likely your best resource for expected release dates and potential models, and you can reach them directly at: http://maruccisports.com/contacts. I would assume that model is in the works, but I can't confirm that.
Will this bat come in a bigger size like a 31" or 32"?
Asked by marmar
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite (MSBC1410) will be offered in a 31" size.
Does it have the "wood bat" composite kind of sound?
Asked by Matt
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC1410) will have more of a thud or a crack like most composite models.
What is your opinion of this bat? There are not many reviews on it. What bat would you recommend for fall baseball? Is it advisable to have a bat for summer baseball, and one for fall baseball?
Asked by Debbie
The 2015 Marucci Hex Composite Senior League Baseball Bat: (MSBC1410) is brand new to the market. Therefore, we unfortunately do not have many reviews on this model. However, it will be high performing, and will have a strong sweet spot. As for recommendations for the fall, ultimately it will depend on your playing style. If you are a power hitter, I would suggest an one-piece, end-loaded design. If your game is more representative of a contact-hitter, I would suggest a two-piece, balanced design. It is not uncommon for players for to have two different bats for seasons.If you are using an alloy for both, this type of material tends to lose its pop a little quicker than composites. Therefore, it might a good idea to have two different alloys for the various seasons. However, if you are using composite, I would probably suggest only having one model. This material tends to become hotter over its lifetime,and would continue to perform through multiple seasons.
