I was pursuing little league baseball bat videos on youtube on a Friday night, because when you have 7 children this is what you do, and I came across a video for a bat called the Easton MAKO Torq.
Reviews delivered about every week.
It took me a few seconds to realize what was going on and then it hit me: My goodness, the freaking handle is rotating around the bat on purpose. See for yourself:
In theory a rotating handle on the bottom hand would allow two things to happen:
But no matter how amazing my eyes have a hard time focusing when I see a baseball bat cost $550. Oddly enough, the $550 bat sure makes the $399 Easton XL1 bat seem like a steal of a deal—which may have been Easton’s strategy all along. It also makes the other 2015 innovative bats (RIP-IT Helium and Mizuno MaxCor) look affordable too.
This bat, known well now as the Easton Mako Torq (not Torque) is real and is for sale. It comes in a handful of different sizes: BBCOR (BB15MKT) 31 to 34 inches; 2 1/4 Youth Barrel drop 10 (YB15MKT); Senior League 2 5/8 drop 5 and drop 8 (SL15MKT5T, SL15MKT8T).
But before you drop a couple years worth of lawn mowing money on a baseball bat, you should probably ask a more obvious question: Why would a bat ever need to have a spinning handle?
