Marucci Elite BBCOR Bat – The New King of BBCOR Baseball Bats

The newest Marucci BBCOR bats is about to hit the baseball diamonds of America. A mass launch scheduled for January, 2013. The Marucci Elite BBCOR baseball bat is the latest BBCOR bat to come out of Marucci’s Baton Rouge, LA headquarters. The Elite BBCOR uses ¬†and “aerospace grade composite material” in the handle and a combination of this same composite material and Marucci’s exclusive AZ3000 alloy in the bat barrel.

So, what we have here is a composite bat with mix of aluminum alloy and composite in the barrel of the baseball bat. That is essentially what the TPX Exogrid is from Louisville Slugger, except the Exogrid is almost entirely aluminum with a very small amount of composite inserts, where the Marucci Elite BBCOR is almost all composite with a little bit of aluminum.

Our initial hits on the Marucci Elite produced very good results. We very much liked the balance of the Elite, along with the pop, and the sound. While we did not get as much time with the Elite BBCOR as we wanted, we are sure this will be one of the best BBCOR bats for 2013.

  1. Sorry, but ALL BBCOR bats will be almost identical in POP. They are limited by the BBCOR standard. The only differences are going to be feel and balance/swing weight.

      “Almost” is the key word. Very similar to how almost all BESR bats were identical in “POP”. BBCOR and BESR is essentially a ceiling of performance, and the BBCOR is just a slightly lower ceiling. There are a lot of good BBCOR bats out right now, even the lowly Easton Hammer can hit the baseball out of the park, but I bet you would not use a $39 bat for serious play.

    How was the balance of this bat compared, to the new Vexxum and the S1, which out of the 3 do you think is this lightest swinging? Thanks.

    Just bought this bat for my son. He moves up to Senior league or 2 5/8″ barrels next year. His batting instructor suggested this bat. I have done a ton of research on all the newest bats out. This bat never gets a bad review, although some say that there are a few better bats out there…. He has used a 5150 composite and a COMbat B3 the past 2 years… lets hope it has the pop that they both had. I am hoping that my decision is correct, I could have went with a COMbat B4 or an Easton S1 or 2.

      He also has used the 2012 Voodoo which was hated and sold within a month due to it being a 2 pc with a tiny sweet spot.
