2021 Marucci CAT 9 Composite Review

By Bat Digest | Last Updated December 9, 2020

Marucci is releasing a new bat for 2021 called the Marucci CAT 9 Composite. This is a two-piece composite bat found in USSSA, USA, and BBCOR. The bat will compete directly in a very competitive two-piece market against bats like the META, CF, ADV 360, and Quatro Pro. The bat has a balanced swing, huge barrel and, according to some our hitters, hits absolute rockets.

2021 Marucci CAT Composite Review

Overall CAT Composite Line Review

Our hitters like the big barrel, smooth swing, and great feel of the 2021 Marucci CAT 9 Composite. The drop 5 CAT Connect competes with the best in the business. (Yes, that is, the drop 5 Cat Connect competes with the CF Zen). The bat has not been out long enough to make commentary on the durability, but we’re hopeful.

2021 Marucci CAT Composite Model Tips

The CAT Composite is for no joke baseball players. That means, if you play a lot of games, see high pitch speed, and are willing to spend the money it takes to get top end gear, then the CAT 8 could be on your short list.

2021 Marucci CAT Composite Review

The number of drops and lengths make it available for any type of hitter. The drop 10 is a real balanced option, it swings as light as the CF Zen. In a drop 5 expect more swing weight--but that is the point. Hitters who want a new take by Marucci on a proven industry idea---as well as one of the biggest barrels around---will do well with the 2019 Marucci CAT Composite.
