2014 Combat PORTENT – $239.95
The PORTENT comes in four different weights for fastpitch players of all size and skill level. The bat can be purchased in any weight drop between -8 and –11 ounces and regardless of which weight you get, this is a bat made to excel. This is a composite bat that was made to give you a soft feel with each swing while also allowing the ball to propel off the bat better with a trampoline effect. The bat is made with multi-walls which Combat used their state of the art precision molding process to complete.
Rip It isn’t a bat company that is as well known as others like Easton, Worth or DeMarini, but they are out to prove that they can release great bats. This Rip It bat is made with R2 composite and AIR technology, which is meant to give the bat a lighter feel. It also has a harmonic barrel which when combined with the other features, gives you a powerful cut each time. One unique feature of this bat is its memory foam-type material used on the grip, which gives you a more comfortable area to grasp.
This bat is currently on closeout by our friends from CheapBats and was also made with composite material. It has a Legit Power Core which Worth developed to eliminate useless material inside the bat, which ultimately gives you a better performing bat than you have ever had before. The outer layer of the bat uses High Modulus composite Fiber Technology, which are smaller and allow for more of these fibers to fit in the same area, thus making it more durable and increasing performance.
