- Size Guide
The 2014 RIP-IT BBCOR Air Elite has once again proven why their bats are here to stay. Using a composite carbon fiber handle, and a new formula for the aluminum in the barrel. This two-piece bat is constructed using RIP-IT's Rifle Barrel Technology. This technological advancement removes weight from the barrel without reducing the overall wall thickness of the bat - keeping durability intact. This is achieved by cutting precise grooves inside the barrel, resulting in dramatically lower M.O.I. and increasing bat speed. The Rip-IT BBCOR Air Elite is the best BBCOR bat they have ever made, and the most balanced.
Looking to generate more singles from poor contact? The Acoustic barrel on the new BBCOR baseball bats helps you do it. This unique BBCOR bat feature is made possible because of the limited drop off in exit speed when contact is made outside of the sweet spot.
This marks the first time Rip It has used composite in a BBCOR bat. The new composite handle design makes the 2014 AIR Elite even more balanced than before, allowing you to swing the bat faster, and ultimately giving you more power.
This is the latest and greatest aluminum from the lab at Rip It! Stronger than ever, this new alloy allows them to rifle the barrel with deeper grooves, and further down the barrel, while still maintaining durability. This allows the Elite Air to be their most balanced BBCOR so far.
Feel the contact, not the sting. The new Prototype BBCOR baseball bats includes the most advanced grip ever put on a certified BBCOR baseball bat. The Contact grip is designed to provide excellent grip, incredible vibration elimination, and extreme durability.

Baseball Bat Sizing Chart

Softball Bat Sizing
To find the correct bat length for your softball-playing daughter, have her stand straight up with her arms to the side. Place a ruler to her side with the start of the ruler (the "0" mark) on the ground. Read the measurement at the end of her wrist, just where the hand meets the forearm. As a general rule, this measurement indicates the perfect bat length for her.
Another sizing method for Baseball and Softball
Another great means for determining bat size is what we'll call the wingspan method. Have your son or daughter stand up tall with their arms straight out (arms should be parallel to the ground as if they were trying to mimic an airplane). Measure from the very center of their chest out to the tip of their fingers. That measurement will give you the ideal bat length.
It's always best to try to size using a variety of methods to come up with their ideal. For youth which are still growing, we recommend that you go with the longest length obtained through the various sizing methods. We often use the break of the wrist method (described in the softball bat sizing above) along with this method and use the longer of the two.
