Marucci Cat 6 -5

marucci cat 6

The Marucci CAT 6 is one of the most popular senior league bats in the game. The brand is a huge favorite of young phenom Bryce Harper and many other big time ballers as well.

We’ve covered the Marucci Hex as well but here we’re going to be discussing mainly the differences between the two. Albeit, the biggest differentiation between the two is that the CAT 6 doesn’t come in the weight / length variations that the Hex does.

Either way, this bat is a one piece alloy construction, is USSSA 1.15 BPF Certified, and features a 2 5/8″ barrel.

But without any further ado – let’s get right into the bat specs.

Marucci CAT 6 Bat Technology

  • One-Piece Alloy Construction
    • The One Piece Alloy Construction is designed for a quicker bat speed with low M.O.I that allows players to exert greater control over the barrel of the bat.
    • As such, players can make solid contact more often with relative ease as opposed to using a bat with a higher M.O.I. (i.e bats with an end-load) that would otherwise hinder their ability to make contact.
  • Professionally-Inspired Extended Barrel Profile
    • The Barrel of this bat closely resembles that of the bats used by big leaguers in order to give players a better chance at transitioning from Youth / BBCOR Bats to wood bats later on in their careers.
    • Marucci is the only bat manufacturer that does this and is a big reason behind their success and that of their customers.
  • Ring-free Barrel Technology
    • Through thickened barrel-end walls, Marucci is able to forgo the use of rings within their barrels and instead optimize the strength of the bat for balance and power.
    • This type of technology is unique to Marucci.
  • Patented anti-vibration knob
    • The anti-vibration knob virtually eliminates all feedback from the back and gives players greater comfort and feel.
    • This adds to their confidence at the plate so they can attack the ball aggressively without having to think about their hands getting shaken up by a mishit ball.
    • Immense mental edge over the pitch.

Overall, the CAT 6 is a great bat for younger players who are also working with a smaller budget as bats like the Easton MAKO or the Voodoo Raw tend to be a bit pricier.

I’d highly recommend it for lighter hitters at the top of the lineup looking to maximize their hitting potential as opposed to over-powering the ball over the fence.
