SHAVED and ROLLED 2023 Marucci Cat X -3 BBCOR Baseball Bat. This is the composite model. Overall, has a nice balanced feel and sound. Kids with 85+ exit velos will easily see 40+ feet utilizing out level 1 service. Due to the design, we do suggest keeping the shave at level 1 if you want to maintain decent durability. Level 2 and above will severely compromise the integrity of the bat. Tuned up, this bat is not a bad choice by any stretch!
