2024 Pencil Models

Models Overview

The Vibe chassis is praised among young players seeking a single-piece bat with the enhanced comfort of a sting-dampening knob, a feature it shares with the Vandal and earlier Marucci CAT Bats. It’s ideal for players less focused on the polished performance of a two-piece composite and for parents looking for value. Moreover, the Pencil Victus stands out in aesthetics, guaranteed to attract attention.


General Recommendations

The 2024 Victus Pencil bat impresses us with its ample barrel, lightweight feel, and sting reduction. For a larger barrel and smoother hit, consider alternatives like the Marucci CAT X Composite. While single-piece bats like the Victus Pencil offer more feedback and can hit just as powerfully with accurate timing, its pencil design is notably fantastic.
