Looks like this was one of the top bats out there, one piece as well. I wanted a small step up from my sons first bat and this is excellent and a huge step up. I love the sound and pop with both soft and hard baseballs. I hit a few myself and it flies off the bat. I've only had a few bats so thus far, the best we've had. He's a taller 6 year old and is able to swing it fairly well. I think when he's 7, he'll still be able to use it and really belt it.

The CAT8 Junior Big Barrel is a USSSA certified, one-piece alloy bat built with AZ105 super strength aluminum alloy meaning thinner walls, higher response rate, and better durability.

My 8 year old son loves this bat and all of his team wants to borrow it too. It works well with the pitching machine!
The bat speed, pop, balance is spot on. This is a great bat. My phone blows up after people see my son hit with this bat asking where did I get it, how well does it swing...
My 5 year old son played with the 26" Cat6 last year. I did not notice much difference between the Cat6 and the other bat we had. But, it definitely felt more balanced. This year I purchased the 27" bat for him. Wow, the ball is flying off the bat and it did not slow his swing down. Great Job Marucci.
Used my new bat for the 1st time at UNLV Baseball camp. WOW! The "ping" sound off the bat and the POP is just amazing! Lightweight and easy to swing. Also the engraving is great. Great product.
As a travel ball coach, I'm always looking for any advantage I can give my team... The ball just sounds different coming off this bat. The all new CAT8 definitely won't disappoint.
Great bat, lightweight - perfect bat for my son in his coach pitch Lots of pop, Great job on the engraving. I purchased 27/17 for my son
Bigger sweet spot, a lot of pop. Now only if Marucci can send me more bats to try and review? :)
