2015 Marucci Hex Alloy Review

November 17, 2020 | by Bat Digest Review Team | @BatDigest

From a design standpoint Marucci Sports owns our hearts.

Hex Alloy

Every new Marucci bat we see seems to leaves us weak in the knees. And, if our count is right, this is five in a row: (1) the CAT 6 is poetic; (2) the Jump to the full review.

Quick Review

Every new Marucci bat we see seems to leaves us weak in the knees. And, if our count is right, this is five in a row: (1) the CAT 6 is poetic; (2) the OPS is now hanging over the fire place mantle; (3) the Marucci Hex Composite may be the best looking Senior League bat of the year; (4) the Elite Limited looks like it came out of a Sears Fall Special catalog.

Now, (5) the limited release Marucci Hex Alloy may be the most mesmerizing of them all. The pictures don’t quite do it justice, just wait until you hold one. Looking directly at the knob, it looks like they used a Skittle as the template and design. Its shiny gloss lime green finish is brilliant and well proportioned. Around JBR HQ we refer to this bat as the Skittle bat.

On a more practical note, the bat is the answer for those who wish they had a CAT 6 in the drop 10 big barrel or drop 12 youth barrel. Can I get a Hallelujah!? Like the CAT 6, the Marucci Alloy is a full alloy one piece bat. It has, like the CAT 6, the sting free alloy design.
One other engineering feat of which Marucci should be proud is the gigantic barrel. This barrel is large even by composite barrel standards. Compared to the Marucci Hex Composite, which has one of the largest barrels in the business, we found the Alloy’s barrel size nearly identical in diameter from the cap through the “M” on Marucci. It does taper faster than the composite version and by the time it gets to the line the barrel is about 15% skinnier.

USSSA Hex Alloy Recommendations
2015 Marucci Hex Alloy Review

Overall we are huge fans of the 2015 Marucci Hex Alloy. The bat performs at peak allowable performance out of the wrapper. Its ping and pop are remarkable and the design we dare say flawless. The price point is right in the wheel house of what most parents are willing to spend. All for less than $200 in the Senior League and under $130 in a youth barrel. How does anyone say no to this bat?

Bat Sizing Options

However, it is nearly unheard of for an aluminum alloy barrel bat to have anywhere near the size advantages that composite creates. The Hex Alloy, however, figured it out. According to Marucci, they took the same alloy used in the CAT 6 and improved it to allow a drop 10 Senior League barrel, leaving it gigantic in relation to its alloy peers.

The youth (2 1/4) version of the bat has a very gradual taper which makes the bat look a bit like a toothpick—especially after hitting with the monster 2 3/4 version. But for a 2 1/4 bat its barrel size is perfect and remarkably long.
