With the exception of the Tee Ball version, the Prime 916 Baseball Bats are all made with a 3-Piece Bat Construction and crafted with 100% Composite material. Louisville Slugger uses the Fused Carbon Structure Design to properly and efficiently layer the composite material throughout the bat, which will maximize the performance and durability of the Prime 916 from knob to end cap. The 3-Piece construction is held together using the TRU3 barrel-to-handle connection piece, which holds the barrel on one side and the handle on the other without allowing them to touch. This TRU3 connection method is going to eliminate vibration and give you explosive energy & power transfer, ultimately increasing trampoline effect in the barrel and adding distances to your bombs.

2015 5150 BBCOR Alloy

2015 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat  is Rawlings’ midlevel BBCOR bat. It features an radically engineered technologically larger sweet spot, and employs the Comp-lite end cap for wider swing speeds. Rawlings stuck with the 5150 BBCOR Alloy because of that bat’s wide reputation for power and durability. The 5150 commands respect across any diamond or field.

 

2015-velo-bbcor

2015 Velo BBCOR (Available in a Balanced & End Loaded Edition)

Now we get to the Rawlings Velo BBCOR, one of Rawlings’ high end high school and college bats.  Rawlings made some changes to the design of the barrel as well as the end cap. Using their “Precision Optimized Performance” or pOp™ they were able to thin the walls of the barrel to increase the sweet spot of the bat by 25%.  Top that off with Rawlings’ new Comp-lite End Cap, and you have a bat that has one of the fastest swing speeds in baseball. Rawlings made two versions of this model, one with an end load, and one with a balanced swing weight. Both are the same bat, yet the end loads are for the power hitters, while the balanced version is for your contact hitters.

Mizuno Generation BBCOR Baseball Bat

2015-Mizuno-Generation-BBCOR-340252-2

Mizuno Generation BBCOR Baseball Bat – Available at CheapBats.com!

The all new Mizuno Generation BBCOR bat is here and ready for action. Mizuno is excited to jump into the mix with their hot 2015 BBCOR this year, and their looking for the competition. Utilizing the most advance alloy Mizuno’s baseball department has, they made a BBCOR bat with electric pop.  To achieve a BBCOR barrel with the largest sweet spot possible, Mizuno came up with a patented wall thickness system that delivers one of the best BBCORs for 2015. The black and white Mizuno Generation bat offers a balanced swing weight that feels great, and makes it easy to get through the swing zone quickly. I was very impressed with the feedback, and response of the Generation. It had almost no vibration, which goes to show the lengths of how far Mizuno has taken this aerospace alloy BBCOR bat. The performance of this bat in the cages for me was impressive. I’ve swung several BBCOR models this year, and the only other BBCOR that had this big of a sweet spot was the Demarini CF7. I still think the CF7 is better, but only because of other features that make that bat a nearly endless joy to swing. The CF7 also costs more than twice as much as the Mizuno Generation BBCOR, so there’s that. Overall I really liked the Generation, and would have no disappointment if this was my BBCOR bat for the 2015 season. I know she’s not the most expensive girl to bring to the dance, but she sure knows how to have a good time.

2015 Rip It BBCOR Bat Review

Rip It made a big bang in 2014 with the release of their BBCOR bats, making the new 2015’s highly anticipated. Rip It seems to have lived up to that challenge as we introduce the 2015 BBCOR Air and the 2015 BBCOR Air Elite!

2015-Rip-It-BBCOR-Air-3-B1503A-2

2015 Rip It Air BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz B1503A

The 2015 Rip It Air BBCOR Baseball Bat is constructed with a 1-piece design, made with 100% R3 Alloy material. The barrel is made with Rip It’s famous Rifle Barrel Technology, where excess weight is removed inside of the barrel to reduce the unnecessary thickness of the walls. This method gives the bat a lighter, balanced feel without sacrificing any strength or durability. Speaking of this bat being balanced, that’s also due to the Very Low MOI, where Rip It efficiently and precisely distributes the weight throughout the bat to keep the weighting even. Lastly, the Rip It Air has comfortable Contact Grip on the handle, limiting sting and keeping your hands highly reactive!

 

2015-Rip-It-BBCOR-Elite-3-B1503E-2

2015 Rip It Air Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz B1503E

Now let’s talk about the top notch option, the 2015 Rip It Air Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat. This bat is made as a 2-piece Hybrid, where Rip it connects a composite handle to an aluminum alloy barrel. The R3 Composite Handle gives the bat a very sturdy feel, while limiting vibration to the hands and redirecting that contact energy back to the R3 Rifle Alloy Barrel’s sweet spot for insane trampoline effect! The Rip It Air Elite also has the Rifle Barrel Technology, just like the Rip It Air listed above, which is the process of reducing unnecessarily thick walls to lighten the bat’s weighting for more of a balanced feel. Another thing that makes this Air Elite so balanced is the Ultra Low MOI, an upgrade over the Air’s Very Low MOI, that makes this stick extremely balanced with an even swing weight going through the hitting zone. Capping everything off is the Contact Grip, keeping your hands comfortable and eliminating that unwanted sting and vibration.

 

Which one is the bat for you? Well, that just comes down to a personal preference on cost. They are both great bats, but if you are willing to pay the extra $100 to get the Air Elite then you get more of an upgraded edition of its counterpart, the Air. Nonetheless, if you buy Rip It, you’re sure to enjoy mad pop and great performance!

 

Both of these beasts are BBCOR certified (legal for High School and NCAA) and are supplied with both a 400 day manufacturer’s warranty and a 30 day “Love It or Return It” policy.
Get your 2015 Rip It BBCOR Baseball Bat at CheapBats.com, the #1 place to get your 2015 bats! With Free 2nd Day Air shipping and our No Hassle Returns policy, your Batisfaction is 100% Guaranteed!

2015 Easton BBCOR Series

2015 Easton BBCOR Series

The Easton 2015 BBCOR Power Brigade is probably the most highly anticipated bats ever due to the addition of the innovative, revolutionary Mako Torq and the new Z-Core aluminum. All six of these monsters have three things in common: long barrels, fast swing speeds and a drop -3 length to weight ratio for overwhelming power. Here they are . . .

1. 2015 Easton Mako Torq BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15MKT)

The 2015 Torq is crafted with TCT Thermo Composite Technology to maximize the durability and potential of the sweet spot. This 2-piece is connected using Easton’s ConneXion Technology for incredibly energy transfer between the handle and the barrel for an optimized feel, while still limiting vibration to the hands. Last, but definitely not least, is the game changing 360 Torq Handle!

This insane feature allows the bottom of the handle and gauze grip closest to the knob to rotate, allowing the players bottom hand to rotate as they progress through their swing into and out of the hitting zone, dramatically improving follow through. This will result in more pitches being squared up with more power, more often! The Mako Torq is, without a doubt, the best BBCOR bat Easton has ever made.

2. 2015 Easton Mako BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15MK)

The most popular BBCOR bat of 2014 is back! The 2015 Mako is put together using advanced TCT Thermo Composite Technology, increasing durability and the potency of the sweet spot! Once again made as a 2-piece, the Mako barrel and handle are locked together using the patented ConneXion Technology. This connection keeps vibration to the hands in check as players hold the performance diamond grip, while also priming the sweet spot for ridiculous performance! The Mako BBCOR gives hitters the power they want while still having an optimized, balanced feel going through the hitting zone.

3. 2015 Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15S1)

Made with an IMX Advanced Composite, the 2015 S1 features a massive barrel and unmatched bat speed for hitters to utilize! The composite barrel is connected to the vibration-eliminating SIC Carbon Handle using the ConneXion Technology for an optimized feel and proper energy transfer. Hold on to the performance diamond grip, utilize that balanced swing weight and you’ll be rounding the bases with this S1 BBCOR on your side!

4. 2015 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15X1)

Made with an end load weighting, the 2015 XL1 is made for high school and collegiate power hitters who want the meatiest of barrels! The end load means that Easton kept more weight at the end of the bat to increase the mass and power of the sweet spot. The XL1’s IMX Composite barrel and SIC Carbon Handle are connected, making it a 2-piece, by the ConneXion Technology to give hitters limited vibration and a strong, sturdy feel at the plate. The XL1 BBCOR has the biggest, longest barrel of the entire Easton BBCOR Power Brigade!

5. 2015 Easton S2Z BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15S2Z)

As the only hybrid Easton BBCOR bat in 2015, the S2Z gives hitters the best of composite and the best of alloy material all in one bat! Using Z-Core Technology, which is a tool to strengthen the internal core of the bat, Easton dramatically improves the strength and durability of the barrel. The barrel is made with Hyperlite Matrix Alloy, which is the best alloy material on the market, giving the sweet spot a lot to work with! Made as a 2-piece, the alloy barrel is connected to the SIC Carbon Handle with Easton’s patented ConneXion Technology, giving the S2Z awesome energy transfer with limited sting in the hands while holding the performance diamond grip.

6. 2015 Easton S3Z BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15S3Z)

If you want a 1-piece, traditional bat then the 2015 S3Z for BBCOR is what you’re looking for! Easton crafts this bad boy with the best alloy material in the game, Hyperlite Matrix Alloy, for an expanded sweet spot and greater durability. Using an internal core improvement method, the patented Z-Core Technology, Easton gives players a strong bat with a massive barrel. The S3Z also comes with performance diamond grip and a tapered handle. Step up to the plate with the most feared 1-piece BBCOR certified bat of 2015!

ALL of these bats come with a BBCOR certified stamp on them so they can be used in High School and Collegiate levels. Get your 2015 Easton BBCOR bat with no hassle returns at CheapBats.com.

2015 Easton Mako vs Mako Torq

2015-Easton-Torq-Vs-Mako-Baseball-Bats-Duel2015 Easton – Mako vs. Mako Torq

Easton’s bats are always highly advanced, incredibly constructed and right at the top as far as popularity. Easton is obviously dedicated to creating nothing short of elite performance. Let’s just say the 2015 Easton series of bats aren’t an exception to that. In fact, they’re better! This year’s lineup, however, is dominated by the two big dogs: The returning, improved Mako and the new, green Mako Torq.

What are the differences between the 2015 Easton Mako and the 2015 Easton Mako Torq?

I’m glad you asked! Let’s get to the bottom of it…

First, let’s go through all the things that they have in common, which is quite a bit. They are both simply a work of art, crafted with 100% TCT Thermo Composite Technology. This composite material is the best in the game! It truly maximizes the potential in every phase, especially the sweet spot in the barrel. Both of these bats are also a 2-piece, connected using Easton’s patented CXN ConneXion Technology, which efficiently transfers energy and gives the bat an optimized feel.

For Fastpitch softball only Easton took that even further and made the ZERO CXN ConneXion Technology. This connection was engineered to completely eliminate vibration, hence the ZERO, and give Softball girls the best in performance!

Now… the Mako and the Mako Torq differ in a few ways…  one of which that is an industry changing feature that is bound to start a trend!

We’ll start with the grip, with the Mako sporting Easton’s signature performance diamond grip while the Mako Torq has black and white gauze grip. They both give hitters what they need, so that just comes down to a preference. Another difference is the color design as the Mako returns with its orange look, while the Mako Torq has a “Torq” green color that lets everyone know who has the newest, baddest bat in town! The glaring way they differ is Easton incorporated the brand new 360 Torq Handle Technology on the Mako Torq. The bottom of the handle and the grip closest to the knob can actually be rotated!

How does the 360 Torq Handle benefit you? It allows hitters to square up more pitches by allowing the bottom hand to rotate while the bat is going through the hitting zone. This keeps the barrel in the zone longer and ultimately gives the hitter more power, more often! This technology is what makes the Mako Torq priced a little higher than the Mako, rightfully so.

One last difference is the leagues Easton made them to play in…

They both have an edition for Fastpitch Softball and also BBCOR, Big Barrel and Youth baseball. However, only the Mako comes in a Junior Big Barrel for baseball, while the Mako Torq does not.

The verdict? Give me one and i’ll approach the plate with the utmost confidence! It all comes down to, besides the difference in grip type, whether you want to pay a few bucks more for the brand new technology – the Torq handle. Other than that they are almost identical.

You can get both of these 2015 Easton powerhouses, the Mako and the Mako Torq, with a 12 month manufacturer’s warranty and no hassle returns at CheapBats.com.

Batisfaction, guaranteed!
