Finely tuned barrel profile slightly balances the end-loaded design for faster swings, more surface area, a wider sweet spot, and higher overall performance. Stiff outer-locking system connects the S-40 composite handle to the AZR alloy barrel for power and performance, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact.
Optimized Barrel Profile: More evenly distributed mass of the ring-free, multi-variable wall design across the entire barrel for a wider, more consistent sweet spot
Tightened Production Tolerances: Allow barrel diameters to be built to the maximum limit, creating more surface area and higher overall performance
Two-Piece Hybrid Construction: S-40 composite handle with AZR alloy barrel designed for power
Power Loaded Barrel: End-loaded, high M.O.I. barrel designed for effortless power
Balance Point: Moved to slightly balance the end-loaded design for faster swings
AZR Aluminum: Responsive, durable alloy provides better feel, more forgiveness, and more performance
OLS Connection: One-of-a-kind design connects the barrel to the handle from the outside in, creating the stiffest connection available, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for the strongest, smoothest swing yet
S-40 Composite Handle: Stiffer construction helps transfer more energy faster from athlete to ball for more performance
Multi-Variable Wall Design: Expanded sweet spot and thinner walls for more forgiving off-centered performance
Ring-Free Barrel Construction: Allows for more barrel flex and increased performance with no "dead" spots
Custom-Molded Handle Taper: Ergonomically designed for each weight drop for a better fit, more bat control, and a better overall feel between athlete and bat. Designed to be easily removable to fit athletes’ preferences.
Micro-Perforated Soft-Touch Grip: Soft and tacky grip for improved feel and control
Approved by NCAA & NFHS: Compliant with NCAA contrasting barrel color rule 1-12-b-7
The CATX Connect comes standard with a gray 1.75mm grip
