2021 Rawlings Mantra is the best bat that Rawlings ever made. Generally known for their gloves, Rawlings took a big step forward in the fastpitch bat market when they introduced the Mantra.
Made for more experienced players that have heavy-hitting in mind, Rawlings Mantra has a ton of pop and a pretty smooth swing. The unique feature that the Mantra has is the Blast Motion Sensor, which will provide you with analytics of your performance on the field. Truly a forward-thinking feature that may be a standard in the future. It is sold separately, so that will make an additional cost to the already expensive bat.
But, the performance of the Mantra is truly surprising. -9 drop, which is recommended for stronger players, is a phenomenal bat and will make a big difference on the field. And, the time it takes to get the Mantra fully broken in is very short, so that is another plus to this already great bat.
Now, the feel on mishits could’ve been better, but the feeling when you perfectly connect is out of this world. The sound too. Rawlings truly made one of the best bats for heavy, power hitters that you can find right now.
