SHAVED and ROLLED 2023 Marucci Cat 9 Composite X -5 USSSA Baseball Bat. THIS IS A 2 3/4 BARRELLED BAT! On the travel ball scene, Marucci products are one of the most proven and popular models out there. These bats do start out stiff and take a considerable amount of breaking in. We highly suggest to heat roll these bats to help loosen them up. Shaved, our level 1 service is our recommendation for optimum performance / durability combination. Overall a very solid product which gets hot and stays hot !
