I have only used Marucci bats for at least the last 4 years. This one is like my other Marucci bats; well balanced and nice looking too.

This Cat 9 Pastime is an incredibly light swing which I love. No end load at all. It is so light it almost doesn’t feel like a bbcor. The anti vibration non definitely does its job I rarely feel stinging on even the worst contact. The light swing weight helps me catch up to fast pitches. The bat hits hard when you square it up. Although the bat is super light with all of these great qualities, the bat has a small sweet spot. You have to square the ball up perfectly to get maximum power. If you are looking for speed and workability and power buy this. If you are looking for forgiveness in a bat you are better off buying the two piece.
best bat ever. Not only just does it look good it has amazing pop. Everything you hit goes insanely far.
Solid bat and it sounds great...
