RIP-IT has outdone themselves with the introduction of a highly innovative bat design that is now available to order! The brand new RIP-IT Helium BBCOR Bat is engineered to hold the perfect amount of compressed helium gas to decrease the moment of inertia and increase swing speed. It features a five piece design that includes an internal fill valve and is designed to feel great with the optimal swing weight to increase power and control. As the ball makes contact, the barrel compresses and explodes out to propel the ball at a very high exit speed, resulting in harder hits that go further. The Helium BBCOR bat is a radical new concept and we can’t wait to give it a swing! Only 5000 of these bats are being made, so order yours today before they’re all gone.

The Mako is the latest bat developed by Easton within their Power Brigade series. It made it’s debut appearance at the Little League World Series and has since been one of the most talked about bats on the market for 2014.
Easton is already well known for the S1 and XL1. The S1 provides some of the quickest bat speed through the zone of practically any baseball bat on the market. The XL1 is designed with a longer barrel which adds a massive sweet spot, which helps distribute more power to the hitter. Now, take those two bats and make one and you’ll have the Mako.
The Mako is the best of both worlds. The Mako is one of the fastest bats, with one of the biggest barrels through the zone. Even with the bigger barrel it still feels light when swinging it. Easton uses their new TCT or Thermo Composite Technology, which contributes to adding a massive sweet spot. The Mako has a faster swing speed than the S1 and a barrel size that matches up to the XL1. The Mako is a 2-piece design, built with Easton’s patented connection technology which maximizes energy transfer while isolating the barrel from the handle killing vibration and sting.
It’s hard to come across a baseball bat with this massive of a sweet spot that can also generate a considerable amount of bat speed. Without question, the Easton Mako is worth the hype and the price.

BBCOR (Ball-Bat Coefficient of Restitution) measures the trampoline effect of bats, and is intended to narrow the gap between metal and wood bat performance.
