CAT8 Connect BBCOR - Black

Power hitters love the end-loaded feel and ultra-responsive barrel of the CAT8 Connect BBCOR, a two-piece hybrid bat featuring a power-loaded barrel built with AZ105 super-strength aluminum alloy. The patented SDX EXT connection (US Patent No. 10,016,667) increases stiffness to maintain energy transfer to the ball, while also dismissing negative vibrations to the hands, resulting in maximum power and minimum sting.

  • AZ105 alloy, the strongest aluminum in the Marucci bat line, allows for thinner barrel walls, a higher response rate and better durability
  • Multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact
  • SDX EXT, Extended Shock Dissipating Connection, increases stiffness to maintain energy transfer to the ball, while also dismissing all harsh, unwanted vibrations from players’ hands
  • Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
  • Power-loaded barrel results in a higher M.O.I. and end-loaded feel for effortless power
  • Two-piece hybrid design combines a carbon composite handle with the AZ105 alloy barrel for maximum power
  • Professionally inspired handle features a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort
  • Micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control
  • Grip weight and manufacturing tolerances may cause slight deviation from the listed weight
  • 2 5/8" barrel diameter
  • BBCOR certified
  • One-year warranty included

    "This plays just like it should. -3 BBCOR is just like hitting a wood bat but with a ping. You know when you miss hit and you know when you connect. It is hotter than the CAT7 but not by much. It seems weighted better and feels just like my Baum wood bat."

    "Bought for my son who is a Senior in HS. He said this bat is Hot. He just used it for the first time this past weekend in a tournament and hit 2 home runs out of the park. He loves the pop with this bat. "
