Posted by admin 18/01/2017 0 Comment(s) BBCOR,

This review is for achieving the Highest OBP On-Base-Percentage BBCOR bats which we recommended for 95% of players. Choosing the furthest hitting BBCOR bat will never beat a consistant and comfortable swing by a batter. Choose the club that fits and let us adjust the performance.

These tests were done with exactly 100 hits using the same batter with the average OBP of.310
 

Please note: These bat ratings are based on Maximum Distance and having the work done including shaving and our heat rolling service, depending how you would like the bat you can calculate below.

Its Thermo Composite Technology delivers a more responsive composite, sharply increasing energy transfer and rebound forces compared with last year’s widely feared model. The Mako features Easton’s exclusive ConneXionATM technology to create a more unified feel, and its synthetic grip provides batters with a high level of control with minimal sting.

We love the Cat7, it is listed #2 in our top OBP bats and at the lower price something to be deeply considered.

The NEWLY designed Marucci Cat 7 has improved upon the already very successful Cat 6. It is engineered with a sweet spot double the size of any previous Marucci bat and constructed with the strongest alloy possible, the 2017 Marucci Cat 7 is built to explode with unrelenting fury. The precision balanced barrel and one-piece alooy design allows for clean, consistent swing needed to control the wrath of thes super-responsive rainmaker.

Our tested version: 33/30 stock CF Zen shaved and rebalanced to a bring it to 33/29.4 finished weight. Heat rolled.

The Zen was a surprise for us to additionally make the top distance chart due to being lighter and more of a contact hitter bat.


The 2017 CF Zen is the perfect balanced BBCOR model for the player looking to gain an edge over the competition. Hot out of the wrapper with an all-new Paraflex Composite barrel and with a bigger sweet spot than ever, the name is peaceful but the performance is anything but.
