CAT9 Connect | Line Specifications

  • Utilizing a three-stage thermal treatment process, our new AZR alloy offers a more responsive microstructure for better feel, more forgiveness and more performance while maintaining the same strength as its predecessor
  • One-of-a-kind, OLS, Outer-Locking System, attaches the barrel to the handle from the outside in, creating the stiffest connection available, while dismissing virtually all vibrations on contact for the strongest, smoothest swing yet
  • Using a Longitudinal Groove System, LGS, across the thickest section of the barrel wall allows for excess weight reduction while also increasing flexibility for an increased performance zone (BBCOR ONLY)
  • Multi-variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot and thinner barrel walls that are more forgiving after off-centered contact
  • Ring-free barrel construction allows for more barrel flex and increases performance with no "dead" spots
  • Power-loaded barrel results in a higher M.O.I. and end-loaded feel for effortless power
  • Two-piece hybrid design combines a carbon composite handle with the AZR alloy barrel designed for power
  • Professionally inspired handle features a removable taper and an ergonomic knob shape for more top-hand control and comfort (BBCOR/-5 only)
  • Micro-perforated soft-touch grip with extra tack improves feel and control
