RIP-IT 2012 Prototype II -3 Adult Baseball Bat (BBCOR)

RIP-IT has built the best performing BBCOR bat on the market. Made with exclusive Advanced Tempered Ballistic Alloy, resulting in the most responsive barrel of all BBCOR baseball bats ever made. The sweet spot is replaced by a sweet barrel. Making contact with the ball anywhere along the barrel results in a performance never before seen in BBCOR certified bats. Prototype II is simply one solid piece of amazing engineering. The one-piece design is forged from a single block of high-performance aluminum which allows for the best performance, durability, and consistency possible in BBCOR bats.

Feel the hit, not the sting: the grip is another part of the Prototype ll that is just plain awesome. Comprised of a memory foam technology that actually molds differently to each player's hand, the grip is customized exactly how players want it every time they use it.

I recently sent this product back. I bought this bat because I tested the Prototype 1, and loved it. I assumed the Prototype 2 would be up to the same high standards. Rip-It really dropped the ball with this bat. It has far less pop then other BBCOR bats I have tried. It was also extremely top heavy. In my opinion there are far better bats on the market.

          About half of my hs team had this bat and within the first two weeks of practice they all broke and were sent back. Most of the bats lost their end caps, and the others dented, mine included. It was a pretty solid bat up until that point, but i wouldn't recommend this bat. Breaks way too easily.

              Several kids on my son's high school team have this bat. 5 have been returned to the manufacturer already for repairs. The plastic end caps break easily and my son's had a large dent. Don't waste your money on this junk.

              This bat is amazing. It looks awesome and has really good pop. I got this about a month ago and no problems except that it is a little top heavy. Otherwise there is no sting in cold weather and I have hit about 5 HR's in only a month! I'm only 13 and 5 foot 3 inches! Love this bat. Great buy!

              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.
