The history of baseball is so rich it earned the name “America’s Pastime”. Played for generations and withstanding the test of time, this game demands respect and will return the favor to the truly committed. Paying homage to the greats that were, in order to carve a place for the phenoms that will be, take the field with confidence armed with superior technology and our unwavering commitment tocrafting excellence.
The two-piece CAT9 Connect Pastime will diminish unwanted sting and vibration with the OLS Connection and provide a smooth swing through the zone. The carbon composite handle and thermally treated AZR alloy barrel combine to produce the ultimate tool for power hitters.
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
One-of-a-kind, OLS, Outer-Locking System, attaches the AZR alloy barrel to the composite handle from the outside in, creating the stiffest connection available, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for the strongest, smoothest swing yet
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
Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
Power-loaded barrel results in a higher M.O.I. and end-loaded feel for effortless power
Two-piece hybrid design combines a carbon composite handle with the AZR alloy barrel designed for power
Professionally inspired handle features a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort
Micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control
The CAT9 comes standard with a gray 1.75mm grip
Grip weight and manufacturing tolerances may cause slight deviation from the listed weight
