Echo Connect DMND Fastpitch -11

Our highest-performing composite fastpitch bat to date is not only ultra-responsive with explosive sound but breaks in quickly and is game-ready out of the wrapper.


Product Features

  • The MDX MAX barrel features a new, more aggressive multi-directional composite design for higher performance out of the wrapper and quicker break-in.
  • One-of-a-kind, OLS, Outer-Locking System, attaches the MDX MAX barrel to the composite handle from the outside in, creating the stiffest connection available, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for the strongest, smoothest swing yet
  • Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
  • Carbon composite handle and MDX MAX composite barrel connect by OLS to dismiss harsh, unwanted vibrations from players’ hands
  • Sting-free nylon knob for improved comfort and control
  • Micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control
  • The Echo Connect comes standard with a grey 1.75mm grip
  • Grip weight and manufacturing tolerances may cause slight deviation from the listed weight

  • 2 ¼” barrel diameter
  • One year warranty included

 

The following are tips and tricks to take care of your bat and make sure that you properly break it in for maximum performance. At the end of this post there are some illegal break in procedures that you should absolutely avoid. Some stores and websites offer to roll or shave a bat. We do not recommend this as both are illegal and can result in multiple issues for you.

BAT CARE

  • Rotate your bat 1/4 turn each swing to distribute the hitting surface evenly
  • Limit the bat to individual use.
  • Do not use in temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Do not store the bat in extremely hot or cold temperature areas. It takes about 4 hours for a bat to reach the temperature that it is in. You can use the bats in colder weather as long as they are stored in warm places.
  • Do not use the bat to hit the dirt off of your metal cleats
  • Use regulation leather covered baseballs and softballs. Avoid the dimpled cage balls. It's best to keep an old bat, wood or a cheaper alloy for practice.
  • Do not hit waterlogged balls
  • Routinely check your bat for any damage

BREAK IN

  • Aluminum / Alloy bats do not require a break-in period. These bats are ''hot out of the wrapper'' and can be used in a game right away.
  • Composite bats may require a break-in period. If you feel your bat is not at optimal performance out of the wrapper, we recommend about 50-100 swings either off of a tee or by soft toss with a 1/4 rotation of the barrel after each swing. Some bats will require more break in, and others less but please remember composite bat life spans are directly related to how many impacts it receives. Each "Break In" hit takes away overall life of the bat! Once broken In, we recommend that you save you bat for Game Use Only.

We recommend the longest and heaviest bat that you can swing without losing bat speed. Although the Feel of the bat will be the most important factor. You have to make sure it feels right to you. The more you like it the more confident you will be at the plate!



We usually start with a length based on a player's height and weight as seen above. As far as the best weight, it is difficult to make a recommendation because it will vary from player to player depending on one's personal preference, hitting style, bat speed, and strength. If you need some help please contact us or come into the store and we will size you for a bat. While bats can have the same measurements they often feel different and it's beneficial to take some swings with them at the store.

IMPORTANT BASEBALL BAT RULES

Baseball unlike Fastpitch Softball has certain Drop (Length-to-Weight Ratio) requirements per age group. It is important to keep track of these as there is a certain point over 4 years where you have to have a different drop each year. If you can swing the heavier earlier without hurting your swing it can be beneficial.

  • 12 & Under (12u): Any Drop
  • 13 & Under (13u): Must be a DROP 8 or Heavier
  • 14 & Under (14u): Must be a DROP 5 or Heavier
  • 15 & Under (15u): Must be a BBCOR (Drop 3)
  • High School (Regardless of Age): Must be a BBCOR (Drop 3)

LENGTH-to-WEIGHT RATIO

The ''DROP'' as some may call it, or the number with the MINUS in front of it is the LENGTH-to-WEIGHT ratio. This defines the difference between the length of the bat in inches and the weight of the bat in ounces. The larger the number, the lighter the bat.
