Marucci baseball bats continue to be used by players at all levels of the game, and for good reason. For the 2018 season, the F5 series is ready to take the nation by storm. When Marucci released the famous CAT series, they named it after hurricane categories due to the sheer strength of their AZ4X aluminum alloy. Now, Marucci has stuck with the weather references and named this model after another one of nature's most violent storms: an F5 tornado. They did so because of the F5 baseball bats ability to wreak havoc on a field. As a one-piece aluminum alloy construction, this model delivers a traditional, consistent feel with a balanced swing weight for better control through the zone. Inside of the barrel, Marucci utilizes a multi-variable wall design that creates a massive sweet spot with unprecedented durability. They have also applied their proven Ring-free barrel technology that maximizes performance at the plate while guaranteeing zero dead spots. On the other end, a custom micro-perforated soft touch grip decreases negative impact feedback and increases overall comfort. Marucci: Honor The Game!
This Marucci F5 Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MSBF5X10) features a drop 10 length to weight ratio, a massive 2 3/4-inch barrel diameter, and the USSSA 1.15 BPF certified stamp on the taper.

add_circle_outlinePros: Great value. My son hit his first homer the second weekend tourney after the purchase. He was having issues with stinging his hands from a composite bat he was using prior to this purchase. He wanted a Cat 7 but financially it wasn't in the cards.
add_circle_outlinePros: nice bat at a good price, first time I heard my son hit with it Inhad flashbacks to my own childhood. the distinctive metal ding sounded awesome and it has a good balance and nice pop. So far it has only been used indoors but he has hit some lasers off it. once we get outside I will update but it seems to have good pop and solid construction.
add_circle_outlinePros: my son was struggling having good at bat lately and after he received this bat he got his confidence again and he is hitting bombs. this bat drives the ball far and with the big barrel you can have a good at bat 90% of the time. my son is happy and I'm too for him.

Has a great soft grip too.
add_circle_outlinePros: So far do good, my 9 year old is pretty happy with it and its been popular on his travel team. Good pop, nice swinging bat. Heard it would ringg your hands on miss hits but haven't experienced that. Seems well built, I don't see durability being an issue.

The 2018 Marucci F5 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBF5X10) is not going to feature the new USA stamp. The bats featuring the new USA stamp will not come out until September. Not all of the 2018 models will feature the USA stamp.
How does this compare to a Cat 7? I want to step up to a drop 10, 28 inch.
The 2018 Marucci F5 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBF5X10) is very similar in feel to the Marruci Cat 7 and is a great option for those looking for a similar bat in a -10. It features a one piece aluminum design just like the Cat 7 and has a big sweet spot. I would recommend it for you.

This F5 features the AZ4X aluminum alloy on it while the Hex Alloy 2 features AZ105 Alloy. The AZ105 Alloy allows for thinner barrel walls & better performance without sacrificing durability. The special alloy used on the Hex Alloy 2 will be the cause for the higher price on that model of bat.
