    "Superior Product"

    Posted by Z Stilin on Sep 15th 2020

    "The Cat9 Connect -8 is a superior product. My 8u son went from warning track power with the Posey to six bombs in two practices. The bat is balanced and very close to the weight indicated."

    "If you loved the CAT8 then you will really love the CAT9 Connect "

    Posted by Don Begley on Sep 12th 2020

    "I purchased the CAT9 Connect for my sons 12th Birthday. We went and did batting practice today and all I can say is WOW. He is a power hitter and the field we were doing BP on he has never hit a danger. He was consistently hitting the fence and one cleared it. "

    "CAT9 connect -8"

    Posted by J Vance on Sep 11th 2020

    "Great pop, sounds awesome. More balanced than i thought. Would recommend to anyone. Having my kid(12u) swing a Zen and a Prime before I would say this is a superior product. "

    "Moon Shots"

    Posted by Mike V on Sep 11th 2020

    "That's exactly what my 11u son said when he hit his first shot off of dead arm pitching, "moon shots!" This bat delivers great pop when hit on the sweet spot. He said he couldn't feel much on miss hits either. Not as big as the the cat 7 sweet spot, which is what he upgraded from, but deff hits harder. The cat 7 was a 30/20 which seemed too light for him (125 lbs, 5'1, solid). The -8 is the perfect upgrade from the 7. He has been barreling everything a lot easier since the upgrade and the pop is crazy. Can't wait to see what happens this Fall! Highly recommend getting the connect if you have a power hitter. If he can manage the - 8, get that."
