The Mako Torq is one of the most controversial bats of all time. It is for sure the most talked about a bat. Easton and its engineers came up with one of the best ideas in a bat. The Mako Torq has a handle that will rotate 360. The concept is so that when a player comes through the zone with their swing, his or her hands will line up correctly -- palm up, palm down. This will allow them to be shorter to the ball and square up more pitches on the barrel of the bat. I have heard it all. There are some people that think its a gimmick, that it creates bad habits and you rely too much on it. All of them, I get as major concerns. When I first saw the bat I was in the same boat. The bat is not a gimmick. It has a purpose -- the habits are good ones, having your hands come through the zone lined up correctly. Baseball and softball are all about reception. This model is the Mako Torq -8. It will be for a strong girl who is in high school or college and is looking for power. Easton uses its top-of-the-line Composite to create the Mako Torq. TCT Thermo composite will expand the barrel on the bat without compromising the weight of it. The drop eight on this bat means if the bat is 33 inches it will be 25 ounces (33-25=8). If you go up in inches, you will go up in ounces as well. This is the first year Easton came out with the Torq in a -8; last year it was only -10. The -8 only comes in two sizes: 33 and 34. Great bat, Great pop.
