The world’s first one-piece hybrid is now optimized for maximum contact. The ALL NEW RAKE USSSA (-5) delivers maximum pop without sacrificing barrel control. The RAKE USSSA (-8) was designed for players that want to hit to both sides of the diamond. The RAKE USSSA (-8) bat features our proprietary AXENIC™ Technology that seamlessly connects the high performance EVMAX™ Alloy barrel with our SMARTPLY™ composite handle to deliver a hybrid bat with no connection joint. This unique construction removes all of the inefficiencies of traditional 2-piece bats. The AXENIC™ technology delivers the purest energy transfer from the swing to the ball on impact for maximum control. The composite handle reduces bad vibration on mishits, so it feels as good as it rakes. Finally, no connection joint means improved durability, less barrel lag, and more pop out of the wrapper. In addition to all of the technology in the 2022 RAKE USSSA (-8) bat, this bat comes with a FREE pair of batting gloves, our industry leading 120 day fit guarantee, and is available in more half sizes than any other bat in the market.
*Note: As of January 1st, 2020 players in the U13 division must swing a at least a -8 bat in USSSA play
Welcome to the FUTURE of USSSA Baseball with the industry’s FIRST 1-piece Hybrid™.
  • 1 PIECE HYBRID: AXENIC™ Technology seamlessly connects the SMARTPLY™ handle to EVMAX™ Alloy barrel without the use of a traditional connection joint. By removing the joint, RAKE is able to improve durability, eliminate unnecessary bonding weight, reduce barrel lag, and maximize POP.
  • COMPOSITE HANDLE: Built using our SMARTPLY™ composite layup which optimizes carbon fiber angles to create the perfect marriage between balance, vibration dampening and industry-leading impact strength. This design allows for less mass in the taper area, and more mass in the barrel for more momentum and more distance on impact.
  • HALF SIZES: Unlike other bat brands, True Temper Baseball offers all their bats in multiple half sizes. Our Half Size Technology is the only way for players to truly dial in their bat. Over half of MLB player’s use a non-whole size bat, why should you?
  • 120 DAY FIT GUARANTEE: Here at True Temper Baseball, we believe that FIT = Performance. We stand by that statement with our industry leading 120 day fit guarantee, which means you cannot outgrow a True Temper bat for the first 120 days. During that time, if a player outgrows their bat, or simply is not happy with his current fit, they are able to exchange it for any other True Temper Baseball bat model or size at NO EXTRA CHARGE!
