More and more pitchers can reach 70+ mph, causing hitters to have less time to react at the dish. If the game is this fast, then shouldn't your bat be? The Rawlings Velo Softball Bat features ultra light carbon fiber to improve swing speed, as well as two-piece performance so the handle and barrel are tuned for excellent flex. These features help to produce an incredible trampoline effect. Also provided is a silver fiber reinforced composite endcap.
