Utilizing a three-stage thermal treatment process, our new AZR alloy offers a more responsive microstructure for better feel, more forgiveness and more performance while maintaining the same strength as its predecessor Using a Longitudinal Groove System, LGS, across the thickest section of the barrel wall allows for excess weight reduction while also increasing flexibility for an increased performance zone Multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact 2nd Generation AV2 Anti-Vibration knob features an upgraded, finely tuned harmonic dampening system for better feel and less negative vibrational feedback Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no dead spots
Great pop felt next to no vibrations in the hands. Maybe more end loaded than advertised but it is not a big deal. Marucci did a great job.
One of the best bats I have ever seen
