Well this is a short term review but I purchased this bat recently for my son and with less than 50 BP swings he took it to the plate in a live game. The first pitch he saw he sent one over the fence for a 3 run bomb! He smoked another off the top of the fence the same weekend. So again this is a short term review but from what I see the Cat 9 has a lot of pop right out of the wrapper. Would recommend for anyone.

the best bat ever
This bat was awesome out of the wrapper. Have Ben hitting nukes with it. The first time I hit with it I went to a field I rarely hit homeruns on, and I hit 19 bombs. It has been very durable also.
This bat is amazing, but I already knew it would be thanks to the Baseball Bat Bros YouTube channel. What really stood out to me about this experience was the great customer service I got from Hannah. My original order got lost by the carrier almost immediately. Weeks went by. I got an email asking for my review, to which I replied that I'd gladly do it once I get it. She looked into it for me, saw that it was lost and had a new one to me within a WEEK.
This is an amazing bat i recommend anyone to buy it its one of the hottest bats out of the wrapper its all around a great bat
Love this bat!!
As advertised. Looks killer and most importantly feels and performs better than my CAT8 gamer.
Transitioning from a -8 CAT8, the bat felt very familiar. Nice balance. It’s definitely hot right out of the wrapper. My son hit one out of a field that he’d never homered on before the first day that he used it. It’s been passed around the team for a week or so now and seems like everyone likes it. Doesn’t seem to be as loud as the -8 CAT9.
This bat is a great upgrade from the CAT8. Marucci does it again and does not disappoint!
