2019 Marucci CAT 8 (-5) with 2-3/4" Barrel
CAT 8 (-5)
The CAT8 -5 is a USSSA certified, one-piece alloy bat built with AZ105 super strength aluminum alloy meaning thinner walls, higher response rate, and better durability. The precision-balanced barrel features a ring-free multi-variable wall design that creates an expanded sweet spot, while the patented AV2 Anti-Vibration knob produces a better feel and less negative feedback.
MULTI-VARIABLE WALL DESIGN
Multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact.
The strongest aluminum in the Marucci bat line allows for thinner barrel walls, a higher response rate and better durability.
AV2 ANTI-VIBRATION KNOB
The AV2 knob is the second generation of Anti-Vibration Knob technology, featuring a finely tuned and upgraded harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback in hitters’ hands.
