Marucci CatX User Reviews

best Marucci cat bat i’ve ever used by far great pop and balanced feel, more surface area and higher overall performance

The swing weight is so much more different than the cat 9 it doesn’t even feel like the same bat. I would argue that the cat X is better than the voodoo one from demarini.

Seems to be a great bat so far. Only complaint is the red paint scratches off easily. My 8 year old crushed the ball with it anyway.

We have purchased the Cat 8, 9, and X. The X is a quality step ahead of the rest! Thanks Marucci for the best bat available!

What is Marucci Cat X finish?

The Marucci X finish is a clear coat that is applied to the barrel of the bat. This clear coat gives the barrel of the bat a shiny, sleek look while also providing added durability. The Marucci Pro X finish is also designed to protect the barrel of the bat from dents and scratches.

Also, the Marucci Cat bat is legal for NCAA play even though it has white on the barrel. That rules has not gone away, but there is enough contrast, per NCAA guidelines, to be allowed.

Marucci CatX Balanced or End Loaded Bat?

The Marucci X is a more balanced design, helping hitters generate faster swing speeds while maintaining the larger composite barrels.

Marucci CAT X Connect USSSA

This means that the weight of the bat is evenly distributed throughout the barrel. This makes the bat easier to swing and provides more control for the hitter.

the difference between Marucci Cat X and Cat9?

There are 3 primary upgrades between the two CatX vs Cat9. They are the upgraded barrel profile, Liquid Gel Damping Knob and the Custom Molded Handle Taper.

  • Upgraded Barrel Profile which means they lowered the MOI or more balanced swing weight while expanding the sweet spot! This is completely different than the Cat9.
  • Liquid Gel Dampening Knob that absorbs vibrations for an even more comfortable swing.
  • Custom Molded Handle Taper is designed for every weight drop which means it is a better fit, more bat control, and overall better plate performance.

The Marucci CatX also has a ring-free barrel construction, which allows for more flex and increased performance. The Cat9 does not have this feature. Finally, the Marucci CatX has a micro-perforated soft-touch grip, which provides a softer feel and more control. The Marucci Cat9 does not have this feature either.

Marucci Cat X vs. Cat X Connect?

The biggest difference between the Marucci X and the Marucci Cat x Connect is the construction. The Marucci Cat x Connect is a two-piece composite bat while the Marucci CatX is a one-piece alloy bat. This means that the Marucci Catx Connect will have a longer barrel with a wider sweet spot.
