RIP IT BBCOR baseball bats started arriving on the baseball horizon around 2014. Since then, the company’s BBCOR bats have proven immensely popular and are typically considered among top-performing alloy and hybrid bats.
A great thing about RIP IT BBCOR bats is that they are an excellent balance between great performance and great price. In simpler words, they essentially let you have top action without dishing out a whole lot of money.
A number of features distinguish RIP IT’s BBCOR bats from the BBCOR market at large. A remarkable feature of BBCOR alloy bats is that they are exceptionally light-weight. In fact, RIP IT’s alloy BBCOR bats are among the lightest alloy BBCOR bats on the market.
The key to this is the use of Rifle Barrel Technology in the construction of these bats’ barrels. This technology reduces the weight of the barrel while maintaining top durability and performance.
Hybrid BBCOR bats from RIP IT use the same technology with the added benefit of a composite barrel which adds to the flex of the bat, offering incredibly great trampoline effect upon impact.
Another incredible feature of all BBCOR bats offered by RIP-IT is that they come with a 30-day love-it-or-return-it policy. This means that once the bat is shipped to you, you can test it out and see if it suits you.
If you like the bat, you can keep it and if you are in any way unsatisfied, RIP-IT will accept it back. These two features allow you to be confident that you will get top quality with a RIP-IT bat and if you still don’t like them, you can return them or have them replaced.
