It includes, among other things, a barrel with a money shaped theme. Up close on the barrel there are bills you can see. It also comes in a green and gold.

General Recommendations

On the whole, we are huge fans of the CAT 8. Those looking for a more traditional feeling single piece bat (not some two piece composite "magic") will appreciate the honest feedback in a the CAT 8. The barrel size is remarkable considering the all aluminum design. The bat's knob has a dampener (proprietary) that dampens sting considerably.

Reviews By Model


The CAT 8 OTM is a single piece bat built with several unique features that make it feel different than traditional single piece bats. Including technology in the knob that helps dampen sting. And, too, variable thickness in the walls to extend the sweet spot, lower swing weight and increase the barrel size.
