Marucci's 2 piece hybrid, the CAT 9 Connect drop 5, is specifically designed for power hitters who are looking for an end-loaded feel without sacrificing control and overall performance.

Marucci CAT 9 Connect Drop 5 Upgrades
The two-piece CAT 9 Connect drop 5 combines a carbon composite handle with the strengthened, thermally treated AZR alloy barrel; a brand new feature for 2021. Marucci’s new Outer Locking System upgrade stiffens the handle and allows the hitter to have just the right amount of feel without the negative variables of hand vibration and bat sting.
The new OLS Connection technology on the Marucci CAT 9 Connect drop 5 is truly state of the art. The Outer Locking System (OLS) connects the composite handle into the AZR alloy barrel and then locked into place by the outer locking sleeve. No other two piece hybrid drop 5 bat connects the handle and barrel in this manner making the CAT 9 Connect unique in the baseball industry. Marucci’s OLS technology improves handle stiffness and barrel performance by implementing these upgrades. If you are looking for a stiff end-loaded drop 5 hybrid this is the bat for you.
