CAT8 -8

The CAT8 -8 is a USSSA certified, one-piece alloy bat built with AZ105 super strength aluminum alloy meaning thinner walls, higher response rate, and better durability. The precision-balanced barrel features a ring-free multi-variable wall design that creates an expanded sweet spot, while the patented AV2 Anti-Vibration knob produces a better feel and less negative feedback.

One-Piece Alloy Construction: clean, consistent, traditional swing feel
Precision Balanced Barrel: produces a lower M.O.I. for precision and control

2nd Generation AV2 Anti-Vibration Knob: an upgraded, finely tuned harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback
AZ105 Alloy: allows for thinner barrel walls, a higher response rate and better durability
Multi-Variable Wall Design: expanded sweet spot and thinner walls for more forgiving off-centered performance
Ring-Free Barrel Construction: allows for more barrel flex and increased performance with no "dead" spots
Professionally Inspired Handle:  ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort
Micro-Perforated Soft-Touch Grip: soft and tacky grip for improved feel and control

The CAT8 comes standard with a gray 1.75mm grip
Grip weight and manufacturing tolerances may cause slight deviation from the listed weight
2 3/4" barrel
USSSA 1.15 BPF certified
One-year warranty included

    CAT 8

    Posted by Chris O on May 16th 2021

    My 12 y/o son is loving his CAT 8. Driving the ball with power. Customer service was excellent when there was an issue with engraving. Turnaround was less than 48 hrs.

    Both my 12 year old and 10 year old use this bat and they love it. It is a hot bat and the ball drives off of it. Cannot recommend strongly enough.

    If your son plays 12-13U travel ball, this is it.

    I was debating on getting a 2 piece composite or this bat and I sure made the right choice! Amazing pop right out the package. Grips feel great and very good looking bat.

    Cat 8

    Posted by Deidre Roberts on Jun 20th 2019

    We purchased the Cat 8 for my son. He loves everything about it, from the grip all the way to the sound it makes when the ball is coming off of the bat. I was a little nervous about going from a -10 to an -8 and how it might effect his batting stats in a negative way since we waited until the end of regular season and he was only going to be able to use it and get the feel of it once before using it in a game situation. Much to my surprise he picked it up used and it first try hit triple. We will only be purchasing Marucci bats in the future.

    Bought Cat 8 after using Cat 7 previously. Great balance and feel. Marucci got it right.
