Senior Bats and our customers.
At RIP-IT we care about our customers and know how difficult it can be to determine which bat is the right one for you. This is why we created this comprehensive guide to assist our customers in finding the perfect bat. Through purchasing the correct bat, issues are eliminated that typically arise when players purchase the wrong bat that doesn't best suit their needs.
Rifle Barrels make all the difference.
AIR Technology is a feature available on every senior bat we make. The purpose of AIR Technology is to make a bat swing faster. This new approach to designing baseball bats allows them to be more balanced and faster, while also giving players greater control and better performance at the plate.
The Drop 5 Senior Bat also utilizes the same Rifle Barrel Technology found in the barrels of our BBCOR AIR series bats. This technology is made possible through a process where we cut grooves in the barrel to remove weight, therefore shifting that weight to the handle of the bat. The result is a bat with an average wall thickness that is ridiculously thin, yet strong enough to take on even the toughest and fastest of pitches.
There are numerous factors that go into defining the performance of a great senior baseball bat. The most obvious factor is pop. However, the sound a bat makes is also a very important indicator of how well a bat is going to perform. Players who hit using any of the RIP-IT senior baseball bats will notice the sound it generates when they hit the ball on the sweet spot. That high-pitched "ping" is the byproduct of the barrel functioning at maximum performance. The louder and higher the pitch, the farther the ball goes. That, in essence, defines our Acoustic Barrel.
We know that players are not always going to make contact on the sweet spot. With is knowledge, we designed our Acoustic Barrel to have great performance on hits outside the sweet spot. Even hits made below or above the sweet spot still exit the bat at an exceptionally high exit speed. As a result, players will have more consistent power on each and every hit.
To build this year's amazing senior baseball bat lineup, our materials engineering team created our revolutionary R3 Alloy. This advanced alloy material allows us to create senior baseball bats that have thinner walls and better durability than our previous senior bats. This, in turn, allowed us to create bats that are more balanced and way faster than anything else we have ever created.
Senior AIR -8 and -10
Designed for exceptional speed, the Drop 10 AIR and Drop 8 AIR utilize our advanced R3 Alloy material. Meaning, they have amazingly thin walls, great durability, and exceptional 'pop'.
Younger players hate it when their hands string after making contact with the ball. To solve this problem, we developed our Contact Grip. The Contact Grip is the most advanced grip to ever ship on a senior baseball bat and is found on every bat in our senior bat lineup. Players will find themselves loving the Contact Grip from their first swing to their very last.
The Contact Grip offers incomparable vibration elimination and increased durability. We believe these traits matter in a grip because they help players keep their hands loose and fast while at the plate.
