Which bat would be more for a power hitter: the Marucci Black 2 or the 2014 Marucci Black?

Both the Marucci Black 2 (MCBB20) and the 2014 Marucci Black (MCBB14) will be very similar. Both models have a balanced swing weight and extended barrels for larger sweet spots. Both models are best suited for contact/gap to gap hitters.

What is the difference between the Marucci Black and the Marucci Black 2 and which one is a better bat?

There are no major differences between the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR (MCBB14) and the Marucci Black 2 BBCOR (MCBB20). The only difference is the color/paint scheme on the two models. Since both bats are governed by BBCOR there really is not one better then the other. They are each great bats.

I'm looking to buy a bat and was trying to decide between the DeMarnini Vexxum NVS and the sales rep mentioned this bat. The Vexxum to me, seems kind of end loaded. What's the difference between the two? I like a balanced bat and more of a contact/power guy. I've swung the 5150 and Omaha Balanced and seem to like them.

The Marucci Black 2 BBCOR (MCBB20) is a two-piece bat similar to the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR (DXVXC). The Marucci Black 2 is more end loaded compared to the DeMarini VExxu, 5150, and Omaha Balanced bat. We recommend the 2014 Marucci Elite BBCOR (MCBE14). It is a very balanced, two-piece bat that is great for a contact hitter.

I lot of the reviews say the bat feels heavier and the barrel seems smaller. Did Marucci make changes to the 2014 black to fix these problems? What are the main differences?

The 2014 Marucci Black has a very similar feel and swing weight to the 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: (MCBB20). Aside from the difference in color scheme, Marucci has not indicated that they've made any major changes. The Black models do tend to be less balanced that some other options, but that is most likely attributed to the extended alloy barrel.

Mac Expert ·Jan 18, 2014

Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 29" model of the 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult. However they do not make a 29" model of the Marucci Black 2 Adult. If you can swing the heavier weight a 31" model will work as well.

The one-piece design the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR BBCA2 has is generally preferred by power hitters because of the stiffer feel, but power hitters also love the Marucci Black 2. It really will come down to whether you prefer a one or two-piece bat.

Which bat is the best of the two? The Omaha Balanced, or the Rawlings Velo.

The Rawlings Velo is going to feel more balanced than the Omaha, but they will both be similar in performance.

Our Bat Coach is a great tool to help determine bat sizing: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/. As far as which is better, that difficult to answer as much of the decision comes down to the personal preference of the player and what bat type of bat they have used previously. It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate.

My son bought this bat from a friend that didn't have a warranty/receipt. The end cap is actually broken and has a hole in it with the broken piece inside the bat. Is there anyway to get a replacement cap? I emailed Marucci and they said they don't sell individual parts. We've purchased several bat packs over the years and trust your experience in answering this question. Do we have options?

Sometimes looking for individual parts can be very hard. For an end cap on the 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult I would check EBAY or Amazon. We do not sell individual bat parts. If Marucci did not have anything for you, you may have some luck searching those other websites.

Since I haven't used the 2013 I am a little hesitant about spending the money. I haven't heard much feedback on the 2013 and am wondering your opinion on which to buy the 2012 or the 2013?

Both are very similar, but the 2012 model is known to be a little more balanced with a slightly lighter swing weight. The 2013 model will still have decent balance, but not quite as much as the 2012 Marucci Black.

I am a contact hitter with some power so would the black 2 be better or the Rip-it Air and what is the break in for the 2 of them?

Both are great bats. You should use whichever bat is the closest comparison to what you've been using. It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate. Both have alloy hitting surfaces and do not require a break-in period.

The Easton XL1 and Marucci Black 2 are both great options and very high performing. The Easton XL1 will be more of an endloaded design while the Marucci Black 2 is a well balanced model. As of durability issues we have not heard any customers having issues with the Marucci Black 2 model. If something does happen then you are covered under Marucci's 12 month manufacturer's warranty.

My son is entering high school he is a 5' 7' 117lbs contact hitter. Would you recommend this bat, the Rip-It 2013 Prototype Air,or the S1?

All three are very high performing models that we would recommend. Generally contact hitters prefer two-piece designs. It then would come down to personal preference between having a alloy barrel or composite barrel. The Easton S1 is a two-piece full composite design while the Marucci Black 2 will have an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Marucci Black 2 will be hot right hot of the wrapper while the Easton S1 will require a break in period because of the composite materials in the barrel.

What size would you recommend for my son, he is 5'2 about 100 pounds and he is 14 years old and he is starting high school baseball?

The RIP-IT Prototype Air is going to be a balanced bat, and the one-piece design makes it great for any power hitter. As far as the durability goes they will both be very similar.

2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult or 2013 COMbat B4 Portent BBCOR: B4AB1 Adult? Just wondering which bat is better, that will last longer and has more pop?

The 2013 Marucci Black 2 is a two piece with an aluminum barrel, whereas the COMBAT B4 Portent is a one-piece composite. The Marucci will be more balanced and the B4 Portent will have more pop because of the composite barrel. The Black would be better for a contact hitter and the B4 would be better for a power hitter.

Damon Expert ·Nov 23, 2012

41917

What is better the new 2013 Marucci Black 2? Or the new 2013 Easton S1?

Both bats would be great choices for the upcoming year. The Marucci Black 2 has a Seamless Two-Piece Hybrid Design. It will have an Alloy barrel with a Composite handle. This will require no period of break-in and reduce the amount of vibration that will reach the hitter's hands. The 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult bat will be very balanced in swing weight. The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR model will be a Two-Piece all Composite design. It will be very balanced also. With this bat's barrel being Composite material it will require a period of break-in. 100-200 swings off of a tee or through soft toss. Just make sure and rotate the barrel in the hitter's hands after each swing. The Black 2 will come with a 12 Month Warranty through Marucci. The S1 will come with a Full 400 Day Warranty through Easton.

Will the 2013 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR AIR be more balanced than the Marucci Black 2 BBCOR?

Will the Marucci Black BBCOR have enough pop for a 13 yr old hitting a BBCOR bat for the first time in competition?

A BBCOR bat will certainly be different as far as pop goes when compared to a the bats you have previously used. The 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult baseball bat will have good pop when compared to other BBCOR bats.

Jeff Expert ·Nov 15, 2012

41408

Would this bat be recommended for power hitters? Would there be any other you would suggest?

The 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult bat would be a good option for a hitter with power. This bat will be more evenly balanced compared to an end loaded Easton XL3 or DeMarini Voodoo. If you are a power hitter that likes a balanced swing feel, this bat would be a great selection.

I am getting a new bat, and I am considering the Black 2 or the Easton S1. I'm a contact hitter, which one do you think would be better?

The Easton S1 is going to be more balanced than the Marucci Black 2. The S1 will be better for you, because the barrel will be a little less stiff than the Black 2.

Is this bat more balanced the the prototype air? And does this bat flex more or is it a stiff bat?

Both the 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 and 2013 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR AIR: B1303A are balanced bats. However, I feel the Prototype Air is just a little more balanced. The Marucci Black 2 is a two-piece bat, but it has a pretty stiff flex.

I have a question about the swing weight. How does it compare to the Easton S1? I'm am debating between the two and am trying to weigh out the pros and cons of each one. Any opinions on either one?

The 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult bat will have a Seamless Two-Piece Hybrid Design. The barrel will be made of AZ3000 Aerospace Alloy and the handle will be Carbon Composite material. It will have an Extended Barrel with an Larger Sweet Spot. This bat will feature the Patented Unequal Kevlar-Reinforced Grip to eliminate sting. It will also have a Balanced Swing Weight. The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult bat will feature a Two-Piece all Composite design. This model will require a break-in period. 100-200 swings off of a tee or soft toss while rotating the barrel in your hands. The 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR will not require any break-in period. The 2013 S1 will be a very Balanced Bat. It is part of the Power Brigade Speed Series. It will have a light weight feel with a low M.O.I. for a faster swing speed and added power.

any idea if there will be a 30/27 size option for this bat in 2013? my son has always preferred a shorter bat - he is 14 years old, is about 5'5" and 115lbs -- he has the 30/25 marucci black and loves it -- we bought the 30/27 demarini voodoo as soon as we saw it was availabe in the 30 inch length -- he likes the marucci black so much better - and I hate to invest in another -5 bat when he needs to move to a -3 for high school

The options for the Marucci Black 2 will only go down to a 31/28. Here are some options at at the 30/27 length and weight to choose from. http://www.justbats.com/products/length~30%20inch/length%20to%20weight%20ratio~-%203/

If I had last years model and thought it was good but not great, would this be the bat for me? I enjoyed my friend's Easton S1 more. My question is which bat do you think is better for me this year. Considering that I like the Easton S1 more compared to the Marucci Black? And lastly, how has the Marucci Black 2 changed?

The 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult bat is a great product. This year's design will be a Seamless Two-Piece Hybrid model. This means you will not be able to see or feel the Two-Piece connection. This year's design will feature Marucci's AZ3000 Aerospace Alloy barrel and Carbon Composite handle. It will also have an Extended Barrel for a Larger Sweet Spot. The Black 2 will provide an evenly balanced swing weight. Also, it will use a Patented Unequal Kevlar Reinforced Grip to eliminate and stinging in your hands. The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR will be a Two-Piece all composite model. I would say you will see better results with an Alloy barrel from Day 1 but in the long run a Composite barrel will out perform longer. When hitting it's all about being confident. I'd would advise you to swing both bats and just choose the bat that feels better in your hands. Both will be great choices and provide you with great results.
