Great looking bat that performs like the CAT7
add_circle_outlinePros: Bat that looks as great as it performs. Purchased bat for my high school player and his general feedback was:
* Wow, the bat has some pop!
* Bat feels more balanced than my other bats
* Bat looks great and everybody wants to use it on the team
* Overall solid bat with nice sweet spot and nice sound
Looks like Maple, Hits like Metal! Overall beautiful bat!
remove_circle_outlineCons: * Priced a little high but worth it
* Light colored wood grain look gets dirty with ball marks, begs to get cleaned more often that other designs.
add_circle_outlinePros: Insane pop, just like the Cat 7. The wood grain looks great, and the vibration is nonexistent. Used it for three games, and got at least two doubles in all of them. Great overall bat.
remove_circle_outlineCons: The wood grain gets dirty really easily, so it makes me want to clean it more often than not.
add_circle_outlinePros: My son fell in love with his CAT7 when it first came out and after a year and half, he was ready for a new one. He liked the wood look, but I was skeptical that the bat was all looks and no performance. I was wrong. My son swears it outperforms his CAT7 and I can't argue with him. Similar feel and balance to the 7 and just as much, if not more pop.
This Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBP28) features the same AZ4X Alloy as the CAT 7 bats. However, it does not appear to have the AV2 knob (which lowers vibration). Besides the cosmetics and feel in regard to vibration, this Posey28 should be pretty similar to the CAT 7.
From the description, it sounds like the shape is not the same as the CAT 7. Here is the description: "..the sleek design of MLB All-Star Buster Posey's game day wood bat." Is my assumption correct?
If the shape of this Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBP28) is different from the shape of the CAT 7, I would imagine that the difference is very slight. I believe the description listed is describing the "wood-like" cosmetics on this bat.
What is changing about the bat rules in 2018? Is this bat good for the 2018 high school season?
The BBCOR rules are not changing for the 2018 season so the Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 will still be legal. The only leagues that are changing their rules for 2018 are AABC, Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken, Dixie, Pony, and Little League.
Does it have the bubble sweet spot like the CAT 7?
We are not aware of the Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 having the same "bubble sweet spot" like that of the CAT 7. This would be a question better directed towards Marucci directly. Both of these bats will feature the AZ4X alloy and a balanced swing weight though.
How did this bat stack up against all the other 2017 BBCOR bats?
The Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 is very similar in terms of construction, swing weight, and sweet spot size to the Cat 7 from Marucci, which is one of the highest rated and most popular BBCOR bats.
Does it come with the grip?
The Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 will come equipped with the grip shown in the photo.
Can you use it in USSSA baseball tournaments?
Yes, you can use the Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 in USSSA tournaments.
I"m trying to decide between this bat and the Mako Beast. Are there any major differences besides the Beast having a longer sweet spot?
The main difference between these two bats is the construction of each bat. The Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 is a one-piece all aluminum bat which will feel stiffer than the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MK, which is a two-piece fully composite bat.
I am between this and the Cat7. Have been swinging a Cat6. Toyed with getting the Velo for this season. I am 16, 6 ft, and 145 lbs. I like a balanced bat. Any recommendations?
The Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 and the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBC7 are almost identical. The biggest difference will be the cosmetics of each bat. With regard to your height and weight, I would recommend swinging a 33 inch bat with the option of moving up to the 34 inch option.
Is the Posey28 Metal Bat balanced or end loaded compared to the Cat7 Connect?
The Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 is going to feature a balanced design while the Marucci Cat 7 Connect features a slightly end loaded design.
Does this bat contain the same amount of pop as the Cat 7?
Yes, this bat is essentially a Cat 7 with a different cosmetic paint job.
For a 5'7" contact hitter which would you suggest, the Posey28 Pro Metal or the Solo 618?
Whether to get the Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 or the LS Solo 618 would be more of personal preference as both bats are excellent options for a contact hitter. The main difference between the two one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights is the composite end cap of the LS Solo 618; this may make this bat feel more balanced.
Does it matter if I change the grip to one that is much thinner or would that cause additional vibration?
With the Marucci Posey28 Pro Metal BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBP28 being a one-piece alloy bat, it is prone to higher levels of vibrations on contact. Therefore, thinning the grip tape could certainly cause an increase in total vibrations felt when hitting.
Is it USSSA approved?
This is a BBCOR model, so it has the BBCOR .50 certification, not the 1.15 USSSA BPF certification.
