Marucci Cat 9 Connect USSSA Baseball Bat User Reviews​

“This baseball bat is so hot that contact with ball not required for a home run. This bat is guaranteed to also fix a $3 swing. Why are you still reading, shouldn’t you have already clicked the buy now button?”

“The Marucci Cat 9 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.”

“I purchased the CAT 9 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 dinger. He was consistently hitting the fence and one cleared it. “

“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 cat9 connect is a superior product. “

“That’s exactly what my 11u son said when he hit his first shot off of dead arm pitching, “moon shots!” This end loaded 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 def. 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.”

“CAT 9 IS THE BEST BAT HANDS DOWN!!! “

“It took a week for my 11u to get familiar with this new cat9 connect hybrid baseball bat. Game 3, he homered over left-center fence in a legit park. Great bat!”

“EXCELLENT baseball bat. This is my sons first metal bat and there couldn’t be more a perfect choice.”

“This cat9 connect baseball bat is amazing!!! Fresh from the box this end loaded bat has the most pop I have seen. My son loves this bat and says he never wants to swing anything else. CAT series has a life long purchasers.”

Is Cat 9 Connect a good bat?

If you’re looking for a bat with a lot of power, the Cat9 Connect may be a good option for you. The AZR Alloy Barrel, multi variable wall design, carbon composite handle and outer locking system delivers a powerful hitting experience.
