We could go on and on listing the technology in Rip-It’s new 2012 Prototype II -3 BBCOR Certified Adult Baseball Bat.
There’s the one-piece, Advanced Tempered Ballistic Alloy construction, finely tuned for the ideal thickness in the handle and barrel. There’s the ultra-large sweet spot that’s unlike any other BBCOR certified baseball bat out there, and there’s the tapered handle with the memory foam grip.
But when it comes down to it, the specs aren’t that important. All that really matters is how it plays.
When you’re using the bat in game situations, does it perform when you need it to? Does it swing comfortably, and does it have the right amount of pop?
With the 2012 Prototype II, you can take it home and find out.
Each bat comes with Rip-It’s risk-free, 30-day money back guarantee. If you try the bat and it doesn’t meet your expectations, Rip-It will buy it back from you and pay the shipping.
Get it for $279.99 at Baseball Express.

The engineers at Louisville Slugger pulled out all the stops in designing this year’s 2012 Vertex -3 Adult Baseball Bat (which is exclusive to Baseball Express, by the way.)
They set out to design a baseball bat with the ultimate in energy-transferring stiffness and the lightest swing weight on the market. That involved constructing the handle and taper with ultra-stiff LS-2X composite, seamlessly bonded to a rock-solid AC21 alloy barrel.
The LS-2X handle provides the lowest M.O.I. on the market, giving it the lightest swing weight out there. The AC21 alloy barrel provides the most pop and biggest sweet spot.
