Questions and Answers for RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat: B1403

108857

Would the Prototype or the S2 be a better choice for an all around hitter?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will feature a one piece full alloy design with an end loaded swing weight that is ideal for a power hitter. The Easton S2 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S2) will feature a two piece hybrid design with a composite handle and an alloy barrel with a balanced swing weight. This model would be ideal for a gap or contact hitter.

Does this bat help with bat speed?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) is more of an end-loaded design which will not aid in bat speed.

Does the RIP-IT AIR have a larger sweet spot than the Prototype?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) and the 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) will both have a similarly sized sweet spot. They both feature a one piece full alloy design, however the Prototype has a much more end loaded swing weight.

Will the Prototype or the AIR give me a power advantage?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) features a one piece full alloy design with an end loaded swing weight. The 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) features a one piece alloy design with a balanced swing weight. Typically, we would recommend an end loaded model for a power hitter.

Is this bat as balanced as the Demarini Voodoo?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will feature a single piece full alloy design with an end-loaded swing weight. The DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) will feature a two piece hybrid design with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. It will also feature a slightly end-loaded swing weight.

Does the paint chip ever? How durable is the bat itself? My problem with all the bats I have bought from JustBats.com is durability and it either having lots of scratches, breaking, or paint chipping.

The bats we sell like the RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) are sold exactly as they come from the manufacturer and are exactly the same as the models other retailers sell. That being said, durability can vary between different bat models based on the material used for its construction. Given the nature of the game, paint chips are always a possibility and denting or breaking can occur. For that reason, the bats usually come with a warranty for replacement if the bats break. This Protoype model has shown above average durability and has a great warranty if damage does occur.

My 17 year old is 5'10" and 180 lbs. Would the one piece Rip-It or the two piece Overlord work best for him? He has slower bat speed right now.

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) features a one-piece alloy design with a significant end-load. It does also come with a 30 day trial period. The DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) features a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The two-piece model will help his bat speed by providing additional flex through the zone.

Does it have the BBCOR sticker on it?

The RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) does feature a BBCOR stamp.

What are some very balanced bats that you would recommend to a contact hitter?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will not provide you a balanced swing weight. From RIP-IT's offerings, I would recommend looking at the 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) as it is a single-piece, alloy baseball bat that provides a balanced swing weight. Another balanced option from RIP-IT would be the 2015 RIP-IT AIR Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503E) that has the hybrid construction (composite handle/alloy barrel), but still a balanced swing weight.

Does the 2014 RIP-IT Prototype have more or less pop than the 2014 Rawlings VELO? I want to drive the ball hard and far this year, and those are my two choices.

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will have very similar pop compared to the Rawlings VELO. The VELO will feel more balanced and help promote faster swing speeds. The Prototype ,ay feel slightly more barrel heavy. Both are full one-piece alloy designs.

Which bat is more end loaded, the 2012 Rip-It Prototype II BBCOR: PROB2 or the 2014 Rip-It Prototype BBCOR: B1403? How much more end loaded is the 2014 Prototype BBCOR: B1403 than the 2014 Rip-It Air BBCOR: B1403A?

Despite both bats being made from a single piece of alloy, the 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will be more end loaded than the the 2012 Rip-It Prototype II BBCOR (PROB2). In regard to your second question, it is often hard to exactly measure end load in amounts. However, the 2014 Rip-It Air BBCOR (B1403A) will be a very balanced bat. The 2014 Rip-It Prototype will be more end loaded than the Rip-It Air, but not by an extreme amount.

My son currently swings a RIP-IT 32/22 and has great results. However, our coach has told him as an 8th grader it is time to transition to a -3 to get ready for high school. He is 5'8" and about 110 lbs. The bat coach is recommending a 31/28. Is this RIP-IT a good choice for him? Is it normal to go down in length?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) has a slightly end loaded swing weight and is typically not the best option for a player moving into BBCOR for the first time. The 2015 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1503A) has a balanced swing weight and is typically a better option for a player that is just going into BBCOR. It is common for players to drop down an inch in length when they transition into a BBCOR bat. The weight he will be moving up to will be quite an adjustment, so the smaller size will make it easier.

How is this model different from the marucci cat 5 model? Specifically in feel an pop?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) and the Marucci CAT 5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCB2) are both one-piece alloy with vibration eliminating features. The B1403 is end-loaded, while the MCB2 is well-balanced. The MCB2 has a longer barrel for a bigger sweetspot and more control, however both bats are going to be very similar in regards to performance.

What is the better bang for my buck between the 2014 Rip It Prototype and the Rawlings 5150?

Both the 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB513) are nice options that are high performing alloy bats. If you like a more end-loaded feel I would go with the Prototype and if you like a balanced feel I would go with the 5150.

My 16 year old son, who is playing HS varsity, used the Louisville Slugger 2013 EXOGRID 3. How would this bat compare?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) is a pretty comparable design to the EXOGRID 3 BBCOR bat. The Prototype has a slightly end loaded swing weight, but it lacks the composite inserts in its handle like the EXOGRID features. I think this would be a good model if he was comfortable with the EXOGRID, and RIP-IT actually provides a 30 Day Love It or Return It Program, so you could have him try the bat out.

Does this kind of have the feel of the Combat B4?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will not have the same swing feel as the COMBAT B4.

Would this be a good bat for me? I bat in between power and contact. I am 13 years old and I am 5 foot 9 and weigh 180 pounds. What bat would you recommend?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) would be a good choice if you like a more end-loaded feel. Usually, power hitters are the ones that will enjoy an end-loaded style. If you would prefer a more balanced design that will make the bat feel lighter, I would suggest the 2014 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403A).

My son 12 year old son has been using an Easton -5 Omen. We are changing to BBCOR. Is this bat in anyway similar, or is there a bat you can recommend as a good transition from the Easton -5 Omen to BBCOR?

The Easton XL1 is the model that replaced the Omen of years past. It features the same end loaded swing weight as well as the two-piece, fully composite design. The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) features the same end loaded swing weight of the Omen as well as the XL1, however a major difference is that the Prototype features a one-piece fully alloy design. The Prototype will be good to go right out of the wrapper, whereas the Omen and the XL1 both require a break in period before they will perform at their peak.

What's this bat like versus the 2014 Rawlings 5150? Looking at swing speed, balance, and performance? What about the 2014 Vexxum?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) will feature a one-piece fully alloy design. The 2014 Rawlings 5150 will feature the same exact design. Their balance and performance will be very similar. The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR will be different with its two-piece half and half design. The handle will be composite, while the barrel is alloy. It will feel much lighter compared to the 5150 or Prototype BBCOR.

How much pop does this bat have?

"Pop" is more of a term used to describe a player's hitting ability rather than a quantifiable term about a bat's performance. The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR Baseball Bat (B1403) is BBCOR certified so it's peak performance or "pop" would be similar to other BBCOR models.

I like using the XL series from Easton. Is this a good bat if I like the XL series?

Is this a good bat if you are a contact hitter? Also, is it top heavy?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR: (B1403) is an excellent bat if you are a power hitter. It will be a little bit stiffer, and will be slightly end-loaded. Therefore, if you are more of a contact hitter, I would probably suggest looking for a two-piece balanced model, such as 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: (DXCFC).

Is this bat USSSA certified?

The 2014 RIP-IT Prototype BBCOR (B1403) is BBCOR certified and will not feature a USSSA BPF 1.15 certification mark. The BBCOR certification is more restrictive than the USSSA certification, but no BBCOR bats with -3 length to weight ratios will also carry the USSSA stamp. However, many USSSA divisions will allow the use of a BBCOR bat. Concerning bat legality, it is always best to check with a league director or coach.

This bat is described as having an end-loaded feel to it. My son currently swings a 32"/29oz 5150, which is a very balanced bat. Should he move down to the 31" in this RIP-IT model since it has an end-loaded feel to it or stay with the 32" ?
