As with all high-performance fastpitch bats, the 2023 Rawlings Mantra+ features composite construction with an upgraded outer barrel. It features a resin layer that lowers the compression but also improves the overall durability.
What is interesting about the new Matra+ is that the barrel, the handle, and the connection piece are fused, making the bat stiffer and ultimately generating more power.
This model features a different connection piece than the regular Mantra. You may remember that the Mantra has a great F2 Collar, but the Mantra+ introduces us to the brand new Power Sync Connect, and that is the big news with this bat.
The Power Sync Connect is thinner than the F2 Collar, and a bit stiffer, providing an improved energy transfer and a more solid feel during the swing. This technology enhances the bat’s responsiveness and helps maximize power generation, allowing players to drive the ball with greater force.
With its thinner and stiffer design, the Power Sync Connect of the Rawlings Mantra+ sets it apart as an advanced feature that contributes to the bat’s overall performance and the hitter’s confidence at the plate.
You can also install the Blast Motion sensor so you can track your stats, analyze them, and improve your swing.
