Awarded Bat Digest's 'BBCOR Diamond' for 2021: Find Out Why
Crafted excellence. Crafted for ultimate power and end-loaded feel, the two-piece CAT9 Connect combines a carbon composite handle with the strengthened, thermally treated AZR alloy barrel. Our one-of-a-kind Outer Locking System creates the stiffest connection available, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for your strongest, smoothest swing yet.
- Utilizing a three-stage thermal treatment process, our new AZR alloy offers a more responsive microstructure for better feel, more forgiveness and more performance while maintaining the same strength as its predecessor

This awesome bat was under the Christmas tree for our 12 yr. old son who absolutely loves it! He wanted this more than anything and yes pricey, but so worth it! He has already started some indoor swinging with it in the cages and can't wait to put his new bat into play in the Spring on the field! Highly recommend!!! I just know this will up his game!
Awesome bat! I bought it when it was first released and it has been one of the best bats I’ve ever swung. My teammates and I have used it a lot and can’t wait to use it in season!
My 13yr old loves this bat better than any other bats he had in the past including CAT8.
The bat increases your game so much. From the first swings out of the box, the pop is immediate. I’ve swung The Goods, and this bat wipes it out. Get this bat ASAP
Best 2 piece bat on the market. The money is worth it.
Son was using a Demarini Zen BBCOR. Switched to this bat and saw immediate difference at batting practice. Better handle, pop and balances weight. My wife saw a difference right away as well. Highly recommend.
This bat is the best bad i've ever swung, I was debating on buying it looking at the price but with the performance this bat has gave me it's worth every penny. Amazing pop, Amazing grip, AMAZING BAT!!! very recommended
My son is 19 and hit a ball 463ft with this bat right out of the box this bat is the best feeling bat he’s ever swung. If your son is looking at this bat, BUY IT it’s worth every penny.
