Questions and Answers for 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC614

111727

Is it a big barrel?

All BBCOR bats feature a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, so the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a big barrel model.

I'm a contact/power hitter. Do you suggest the 2015 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15X1), or the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614)? What size? I am 5'11, 175 lbs.

We would recommend a 33-34" model based on your height and weight. The Marucci Cat 6 would be a better fit if you are a contact hitter because it is more balanced. The Easton XL1 would be a better fit for a power hitter because it is more end loaded.

What are the differences between this bat and the Rawlings Select 715?

Rawlings does not make a Select 715 bat. If you are referring to the 2015 Louisville Slugger Select 715 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBS7153), the difference would be the design. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a single-piece alloy material bat with a balanced swing weight while the Select 715 is a two-piece hybrid design with a composite handle and alloy barrel and a slightly end-loaded feel. They are very different by design in terms of feel.

In the single-piece alloy category, it is one of the best options available.

I am in 8th grade and in a league that we use BBCOR bats. I have been using a Demarini CF5, but am looking to get a new bat. One of the features I prefer in a bat is that it is balanced and not end-loaded, being a contact hitter. Would a bat such as the CAT 6 be a good choice, or any other suggestions?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a one piece alloy bat with a balanced swing weight. It is one of the more popular BBCOR bats and would be a good option for any hitter. It is going to have a stiffer flex than your two piece composite DeMarini CF5.

Does this bat or the new 5150 have more pop? Which one has a bigger sweet spot?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) has a one-piece design with a balanced swing weight, which is ideal for any type of hitter. The balanced swing weight is great for increasing bat speed and contact. Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 33" model.

I'm 6'1" and 160 pounds. What bat would you recommend in the 32" 29 oz. size?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) would be a fantastic choice. It is the most balanced bat that Marucci makes, so it will be a great choice to work on bat speed and bat control.

Is this or the CAT 5 illegal in high school baseball? I am 5 foot 9 and weigh 195 pounds and my uncle told me to stick with a 32 inch since that is all I have swung before. How does the balance and swing feel compared to a Marucci Team bat which is my old bat?

The Marucci CAT 5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCB2) was ruled illegal in the 33 inc or 34 inch size. The 32 inch would still be legal. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is legal in all sizes and would be similarly balanced to the Marucci Team BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBT) but should have a bit better sting and vibration protection. Based on your height and weight, I would say a 32 inch would be a good fit for you.

Patrick Expert ·Apr 03, 2015

I'm 5 foot 11 inches and 195 pounds, what would you guys recommend? What are your bat recommendations?

Based on your height and weight I would recommend the 33 inch 30 ounce. If you are a contact hitter the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) would be great choice. If you are a power hitter I would take a look at the Easton XL series or the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord.

I'm 5'5" and 120 lbs. Would you recommend the CAT 6 or the CF7?

For a player of your size, our bat coach would recommend the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) in a 30" 27 oz. model. This model features a one piece full alloy design with a balanced swing weight. The 2015 DeMarini CF7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCFC) would be an excellent option as well. It features a two piece full composite design with an extremely balanced design. Either model would be ideal for a contact to gap hitter, or a younger player using a BBCOR model.

I am 5'9" and 185 lbs. What size bat should I get?

For a player of your size, our bat coach would recommend the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) in a 33" 30 oz. model.

I'm 6 foot 1 (73 inches) and 190 LBS, and am currently using a 33/30 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR. Your sizing chart reccomends a 34/31 for someone of my height and weight. I have never used a bat larger than 33/30. How does the swing weight differ from the Black (Would I be able to swing the 34/31 as fast as I do the 33/30 Black)? Should I stick with the 33/30 or step up to the 34/31?

Our sizing chart only gives an average and doesn't take into consideration player preferences. If you were swinging a 33"/30 oz. bat well, you don't have to force yourself to use a 34"/31 oz. model of the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614)

My friend swings a 2013 Omaha that I really like. My old bat is a CF5. I always felt like I couldn't locate the barrel. Would this bat feel more like that Omaha, or would the new Omaha be better? I'm a gap to gap hitter.

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) would be very comparable to the Louisville Slugger Omaha 515. Both models feature a balanced, one-piece, fully alloy design. The CAT 6 is actually the most balanced bat that Marucci manufactures, so if you wanted to go with a model that would be great for a gap hitter, this would be a fantastic choice.

Tessa Expert ·Mar 25, 2015

Is this bat end loaded? I'm 5'7" and 175 pounds. What size bat should I get?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a balanced design. For a player with your height and weight we would recommend a 32".

I have a 33" DeMarini M2M right now, and I am considering the CAT 6. I felt that the M2M had too heavy of a swing for me. Will this bat have a lighter feel?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is the most balanced bat that Marucci manufactures. The DeMarini M2M actually featured an end loaded swing weight, so this CAT 6 will definitely have a lighter feel compared to the M2M. This would be a great choice to work on bat speed and bat control.

My son is 14 years old, 5'10" and 120 lbs. What size does he need?

For a player of his size, our bat coach would recommend the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) in a 32" 29 oz. model. The 33" 30 oz. model would likely be too large for him.

Joe Expert ·Mar 19, 2015

Is the CAT 6 better than the 2015 OVERLORD?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) features a one piece full alloy design with a balanced swing weight. The 2015 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD FT BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) will feature a two piece hybrid design with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. Additionally, it offers an end loaded swing weight. We would recommend either model for a gap to power hitter. Both bats offer vibration reduction technology to help reduce hand sting.

Joe Expert ·Mar 17, 2015

107971

Is the CAT 6 higher performing than the VELO?

Both the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2015 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBRVB) feature a one-piece fully alloy design with an extremely balanced swing weight. They also feature vibration reduction technology to reduce hand sting on mishits. The performance of the bats will be very similar.

Joe Expert ·Mar 17, 2015

107961

Which is better, the BBCOR CAT 6 or the BBCOR VELO?

Both bats are similar to each other. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2015 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBRVB ) are one-piece aluminum bats, so they will have a similar feel. However, the CAT 6 seems to not only be a more popular bat, but it has more technology incorporated, such as the anti-vibration knob to help eliminate sting.

Is there a significant difference between the CAT 5 and CAT 6 other than color?

Marucci has acquired a patented new anti-vibration technology for the CAT 6. This study on this technology has found that the vibration dampening rate on the CAT 6 is 5.6 times higher than the next competitor.

The Marucci Black BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBB14) features a two piece hybrid with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. The Black does offer an end loaded swing weight.

I know that I need a 32 inch 29 ounce BBCOR bat. I am 5 foot 5 and a contact hitter. I do not like a top heavy bat. What is a better bat for me? The Marucci CAT 6 or the new DeMarini Voodoo?

Between those two bats, I would go with the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) if you do not like a top-heavy or end-loaded feel. The 2015 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD FT BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) is an end-loaded design.

Brandon Expert ·Mar 14, 2015

107664

The Marucci CAT 6 or the Easton XL3, which do you think will be better for a power hitter?

Either the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) or the Easton XL3 would be a good option for a power hitter. The only difference in the two bats is that the CAT 6 features a balanced swing weight and the XL3 features an end loaded swing weight and extended barrel.

What bat is better overall, this or the 2015 Rawlings 5150? I am a contact hitter

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2015 Rawlings 5150 Baseball Bat BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB5150) share many similar design features that make them compare very closely. Both are nice options and preference would really come down to brand and style preference rather than one being completely better than another.

On this bat one of the customers reviewed this bat saying that , "It says its balanced but its a bit top heavy." Is the Marucci Cat 6 a little end loaded as that customer reviewed or is it balanced as advertised?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is going to be a light and balanced bat.

Allison Expert ·Mar 07, 2015

Is this the best bat on the market for a power hitter?

The balanced swing weight of the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is typically favored by contact hitters, since it is easier to work on bat speed and bat control with a balanced bat. Typically, power hitters will prefer an end loaded bat that will take advantage if their fast bat speed and strength. The one-piece design of the CAT 6 is complimentary to power hitting though, since power hitters tend to prefer one-piece bats. This is because the one-piece design isn't as forgiving as a two-piece. Two-piece bats with a lot of flex can be a bad thing for a power hitter because it can cause loss of bat head control and a late whipping action.

Tessa Expert ·Mar 02, 2015

106952

What is the CAT 6's grip size? What size bat does a 6'4", 165 lb player need?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) does have a fairly thick taper on the grip, which keeps your lower hand from chafing on the knob. For a player of that size, our bat coach would recommend a 34" 31 oz. model.

Joe Expert ·Mar 02, 2015

106949

How would you compare this bat to the Rip It Air?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) are going to be very similar. Both have a balanced feel to the bats and are designed for a contact hitter. Both are going to be a one piece alloy design, but they both use different alloy.

Frankie Expert ·Mar 02, 2015

106857

So since the bat is balanced I should be able to swing the 33 inch bat just as normal as 32 inch?

Whether balanced or end-loaded, the bat will still weigh the same overall. The swing weight on balanced models like the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) will be a bit lighter than on a more end-loaded design but that does not necessarily mean that you should get a longer bat.

Patrick Expert ·Mar 01, 2015

I am 5'3" and 160 lbs. Which option would be best for me? Also, is it legal to use it in a little league 50/70 division?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a great choice for a BBCOR bat. It is very balanced and fully alloy. It will not require any period of break-in. I would check with your coach or league official first, but the BBCOR bat should be accepted in your league.

Is the paint scheme the only difference between the CAT 6 and the CAT 6 Digi Camo?

I am a freshman in high school and I have grown a lot recently. I am looking to be a power hitter. Would this bat work for me?

The stiffer flex of the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a feature that many power hitters prefer while the balanced design is good for transitioning into BBCOR bats and keeping swing speed up. For those reasons, I would think the CAT 6 would be a good fit for you.

Patrick Expert ·Feb 27, 2015

106689

I'm more of a contact hitter. Would you recommend this bat to me, if I'm looking to get more power out of my swing?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) would be a fantastic choice.

This would be a great choice for a contact hitter.

Tessa Expert ·Feb 26, 2015

106666

Marucci Cat 6, Easton Mako, or Demarini CF6?

All incredible bats! The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is fully alloy in design. The others will be fully composite. All will be very balanced and help get you fast bat speeds. The MAKO will provide the longest barrel length of the three. With all three getting great reviews, this a win/win/win situation!

Hi, I'm 5'9" and weigh 160 pounds. I am a power hitter and was wondering what size bat I should get and whether the Easton Mako or the Cat 6 would be the better option?

For a player of your size, our bat coach recommends the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) in a 31" 28 oz. model. Typically, we recommend a two-piece model for contact hitters such as the 2015 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15MK). A one piece model such as the Cat 6 would be recommended for use by a power hitter. Additionally, the MAKO is a full composite model and the Cat 6 is an alloy bat.

Joe Expert ·Feb 10, 2015

I have a Cat 6 and when I tap the end of it, it kind of sounds like it is cracked. But its not. Is this normal?

Tapping the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) on the ground or something else is not a good way to indicate if there is an issue with the bat. If there has been a visible crack or severe denting or if the bat has had a significant and very noticeable drop in performance, you could contact the manufacturer and take steps to have the bat tested to see if it has become defective and would need to be replaced.

Patrick Expert ·Feb 08, 2015

105301

I'm kind of between a contact/power hitter and want to know what would be a better bat choice for me: the CAT 6 or Voodoo?

Both bats are great options, but it comes down to what you prefer. The DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) is a two piece hybrid with a composite handle and alloy barrel with an extended barrel and end loaded swing weight. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a one piece alloy with a balanced swing weight. If you are in the middle either of these would work.

Allison Expert ·Feb 05, 2015

The Cat 6 is quite an amazing bat, a lot like the Cat 5. Do you think it'll get banned like the Cat 5?

The issues that lead to certain sizes of the Marucci CAT 5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCB2) being banned have been addressed so the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) will not have those problems.

Patrick Expert ·Feb 05, 2015

How does this bat stand up against the 2014 Easton MAKO? I know that the MAKO is composite and the Marrucci CAT 6 is an alloy bat, but are both equally or similarily balanced? What about the difference in pop?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) are both great models. They will be similarly balanced. As far as pop goes, under the BBCOR standards all bats will have the same performance standards across the board so pop is going to be similar as well. The main difference besides the material is that the CAT 6 is a one piece and the MAKO is a two piece. The one piece CAT 6 will offer a stiffer flex.

I'm 5'8", 120 lbs., and a contact hitter. Which bat should I get: Marucci CAT 6, Marucci Elite, or the Marucci Black?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) will be the most balanced of the three. The Elite will actually have the lowest MOI, which means that it will swing the fastest. The Black is a two-piece seamless hybrid, which means that it will swing very similarly to a one-piece bat. All three are great balanced choices for contact hitting, ultimately, it will be a matter of your own preference as to which would be the better model for you.

How does this bat compare to the DeMarini CF7 (DXCFC) bat? The Marucci is $200 cheaper and just wondering way such a big difference when the reviews are so similar?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) is a one piece bat with an alloy structure. The 2015 DeMarini CF7 BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCFC) is a two piece bat with a composite structure.

I am 5'10" and 180 lbs, what size Cat 6 should I get? Also I am debating between a 2015 Demarini Voodoo Overlord and a Marucci Cat 6. I am more of a power hitter than contact hitter but I want a bat with a lot of pop and a fast swing weight. What would be the best for me?

For a player of your size, our bat coach recommends the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) in a 33" 30 oz. model. The CAT 6 and the Overlord will both be suited for power hitters. The Cat 6 features a one-piece alloy design with their ring free barrel design. This will allow for faster swing speeds as well as extending the sweet spot. The Overlord features a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle. Additionally, it will feature a slight end-load. Two-piece models typically increase your swing speed by allowing for more flex through the zone. Traditional power hitters usually prefer the stiffer feel of the one-piece models however. In regards to performance both bats will be similar.

Additionally, it also offers Marucci's patented Anti-Vibration Knob to eliminate shock and vibration through the handle. The Marucci CAT 5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCB2) was originally released in 2011/2012, and is known as one of the hottest BBCOR Bats. The 33"-34" models are still banned from play for exceeding the BBCOR ratings. The Bats will have similar construction featuring a one-piece well-balanced alloy.

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614), 2015 Rawlings VELO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBRVB), and the 2015 Louisville Slugger Omaha 515 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBO5153) are all rated to the same BBCOr standard and will have similar durability so the preference would come down to brand or style preference.

The BBCOR certifications on all these bats also limits the performance or "pop" that the bats are capable of; because of this, factors such as sweet spot size and feel at contact are often the biggest difference between bat models.

Should I get Marucci Black or CAT 6?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and Marucci Black are both very comfortable, high performing models from Marucci. The Cat 6 will have a longer barrel length and sweet spot. Both models will have an anit-vibration technology to eliminate hand sting and discomfort. Either would be a fantastic choice!

What bat would be the best for a contact hitter: the Marucci CAT 6, the Easton S3Z, or the RIP-IT AIR?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614), the Easton S3Z,and the RIP-IT AIR are all high performance models from their respective manufacturers. They are all similar in a sense that they feature a one-piece, balanced, and fully alloy design, which is great for contact hitting. All three are great options for any contact hitter. It will be a matter of brand preference.

I just bought this bat and I have used it in one showcase. It is making a weird sound when I hit the nob on the ground. Is it defective or is this normal? Thanks.

This is completely normal for the Cat6. The reason you hear that particular sound is because of the vibration reducing damper that is unique to the Cat6 line. The vibration-reducing damper is absorbing and trapping all of the vibrations that are being produced in the bat, in turn producing this deadening sound. This is normal and is in fact, technology at work...

How is the balance of the Cat 6 compared to the Rip-It AIR?

Both the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the RIP-IT AIR feature balanced swing weights, which is generally preferred by contact hitters.

Will this swing like Marucci Team, or Black 2 bat? And, is it a good option for power hitters?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) has a larger sweet spot than the Team, but it still offers a balanced swing weight. I would say it's closer to the Team in feel and balance than the Black 2. Any bat is a good option for a power hitter, as long as they are comfortable using it. But the stiff flex provided by the one-piece design is a good fit for a stronger player.

What is the difference between this bat and the Cat 5?

I am a power hitter 6'1" 150 lbs, and I like barrel length. Which Marucci bat would you recommend?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (MCBC614) will work well as a bat for power hitters. Generally, big hitters prefer a one-piece design for the added stiffness it provides. Another great option would be the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD BBCOR Baseball Bat: (DXVDC). This model is a two-piece, however, it does incorporate a slight end-load, and this weight distribution tends to be highly preferred by power hitters. Ultimately, it will come down to player preference, but both of these are excellent options for big hitters.

I am 5'7" and 125 pounds. I am going to be a freshman, what size would you prefer? Also, would you prefer the Elite or CAT 6 for a small contact-hitter?

Based on the player's approximate height and weight, I would suggest 31 inches. Generally, for a contact-hitter, I would suggest a two-piece, balanced design. Therefore, I would probably recommend taking a closer look at the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (DXCFC).

How his bat compare to the 2015 Rawlings Velo with the sound, feel, and pop?

With regard to pop, since they both have to meet the same BBCOR performance standard, they will have about the same pop.

Does this bat have a larger sweet spot than the Marucci Elite? Which bat has a lighter swing weight? Also, will there be a 2015 Marucci Elite?

Both the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 (MCBC614) and the Marucci Elite will have the same size sweet spot. The Marucci Elite has a slightly lighter swing weight due to the composite material at the end of the barrel.

Sean Expert ·Jul 31, 2014

What are the differences between the Black, CAT 6, and Elite bat?

The Elite is a two-piece seamless hybrid with an alloy barrel and composite handle that also features composite material toward the end of the barrel to make it a very balance model.

I have a 2014 Mako and really like it. How does this bat compare to the Mako in terms of balance and performance? Do you prefer the Mako or the CAT 6?

Both the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) are great models. They will be similarly balanced but that is where the similarity stops. The MAKO is a two-piece composite design and the CAT 6 is a one-piece alloy. The preference between the two would be based on your preference of the style of bat you like.

I'm about 5'8" and I've been hitting in the cleanup spot for years. I'm going into my freshman year of high school and I've been swinging a 32 inch bat since my last year of little league. I'm not sure I'm ready for 33 but 32 is starting to feel a bit small for me as a power hitter. Any advice on sizing? also, is this a good bat for power?

It's all about what you are most comfortable with at the plate. You can check out our Bat Coach for sizing options (http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/) but if you're not ready to move up to a 33", it's probably best to stick with a 32" or go with a 32.5" model. The CAT 6 will be very balanced and has a longer barrel and bigger sweet spot so it is great for both contact and power hitters. If you decide to go with a 32.5" model, I'd check out the 2014 RIP-IT AIR Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat: B1403E.

I'm 5'6", 120 lbs sophomore in high school. I am also a lead off batter who hits for contact. What size do you feel would work best for me?

Based on your approximate height and weight, I would probably suggest 30". However, this size is just the average. If you are bigger/smaller for your age, you can always increase or decrease an inch as well for the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (MCBC614).

Is this as balanced as the Marucci Elite 2014?

No, the Elite bats were designed to be the fastest swinging Marucci bats on the market. In contrast, the Cat 6, while still very balanced, was designed with a focus on feel and sweet spot size; and to maximize those characteristics it gives up a tiny bit in balance.

I am 6 feet tall and weigh 185 pounds. I am going into college ball. I am more of a power hitter but I like to hit for contact. Would this Marucci Cat 6 or the 2014 Voodoo be better for me?

Preference between the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) would come down to which style you like more. Both could be used by power hitters. If you like an end-loaded feel, you should go with the Voodoo. If you like a balanced model or may need the added bat speed at times, I would go with the Cat 6.

How do you think the Cat 6 compares to the Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha Balanced BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB136? Sweet spot size, swing feel, balance, power vs. contact, and durability?

The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) will be similar in design to the Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha Balanced BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB136) in most aspects of its design. It will be a bit more well balanced and have better sting and vibration protection and will also have improved durability over the Omaha. Both are nice one-piece alloy models though.

The Marucci Cat 6 has a balanced swing weight, but it has a longer barrel, bigger sweetspot, and carries through the ball better than the Marucci One. One additional and significant difference between the Cat 6 and the One is that the Cat 6 has Marucci's patented anti-vibration technology built into its knob.

Which bat is a better choice a Cat 6 or a Easton S1? I'm looking for a balanced bat with a nice barrel size that can easily get through the zone without the weight of the barrel causing my bat to drop.

Both the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S1) would be nice balanced weight choices. The S1 will be a two-piece composite design that will flex a bit and could possibly lead to more bat speed than on the one-piece alloy Cat 6.
