The new premium leather gives this bat a classy feel without sacrificing any bat speed or feel. Some older styles such as the Bluethroat Cat 9 connect drop five had a heavy feel without the premium leather.

The new premium leather gives the cat 9 connect drop 5 a comfortable and stable feel while still providing plenty of projection. The two piece hybrid of a premium wood body and a premium steel frame have been changed to a two piece design.

In addition, the barrel and the groove where the grip meets the barrel are two pieces instead of a single piece. The grooves also provide a smoother transition for a more comfortable grip. The barrel is now available in two pieces to allow for a longer or a shorter grip length.

The premium steel material in the bat provides an extra layer of accuracy to the shot. This accuracy helps the longer hitter be more accurate with the bbcor version of the cat 9 connect drop 5.
While this is a subjective opinion the performance of the premium steel material for the barrel is much better than the soft wood. The change to a longer but stronger barrel has helped this premium steel line to remain the best drop 5 baseball bat category. This extra strength helps move the ball with a faster speed. The combination of a shorter but stronger frame and a faster bat are both very helpful to the hitter. They help him hit the ball harder for higher percentages of success.
