HZRDUS (-5) USSSA 2 3/4" Baseball Bat

As Low as $300.00
The world’s first one-piece hybrid bat is now available for USSSA play. The all NEW 2022 HZRDUS USSSA (-5) is hot out of the wrapper with a Power Balanced swing weight. Built for power hitters, the HZRDUS USSSA (-8) bat maximizes power and distance for elite youth batters. The HZRDUS USSSA (-5) 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 performance. The composite handle reduces bad vibration on mishits, so it feels as good as it mashes. 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 HZRDUS USSSA (-5) 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 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, HZRDUS 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!
  • When you register any HZRDUS USSSA (-5) bat, you will receive a personalized code to redeem your FREE pair of batting gloves at truetempersports.com/baseball.
