Alright, I’ll start by saying I detest the Yankees and in this way abhor Don Mattingly. With that off the beaten path my baseball bat reviews of these bats will be objective.
Mattingly bats principle selling point is the V-Grip handle. The handle, to some degree formed like a V, is intended to assist you with grasping the handle accurately. Which means your “entryway thumping knuckles” are adjusted when getting a handle on the handle. As I would like to think, it’s what could be compared to the young mitts that have a score to assist kids with shutting the glove better.
The issue is no child in High School or College will be seen holding this bat, as they wouldn’t be seen wearing a glove with an indent in it. In all honesty, any child who’s arrived at adolescence wouldn’t like to be seen holding a V-Grip bat. It shouts that the player is unpracticed and needs a bolster (sorry Donny, I’d state this regardless of whether you had played for a group I didn’t despise).
These are the main bats I’ve checked on that I have not seen, contacted or been in a similar region as. In this way, the bat surveys are beneath yet my proposal is to pass on Mattingly bats:
– Beast – 100% composite, one piece bat with a firm handle. Other than the V-Grip they promote the Xtreme Weave Carbon development for “greatest force and strength”. Obviously I don’t suggest this bat.
– Ripped – 100% compound, one piece bat with a hardened handle. Mid-range grade combination (MB55Sc composite) promoting indistinguishable advantages from the Beast. It’s odd that two bats made out of totally extraordinary material have precisely the same advantages. Not suggested.
– V Force – One piece, 100% composite bat with a solid handle. This bat is just accessible in youth models and comprises amalgam that has been around for more than 15 years (MB75 composite). Except if you’re playing T-Ball there are better alternatives.
