Last season, Boombah dipped their toes into a new pond. After becoming synonymous with elite product on the diamond, the company ventured into creating bats for the first time. While their footwear and apparel had risen to the top, taking on a softball bat was a whole new venture for them. The 2014 Boss bat turned out to be one of the best new products of the year. This time around, Boombah has done it again, and the 2015 Boss sets the gold standard.

Using a two piece construction technology, the Boss 120 is constructed as a Multi-Layer composite bat. Due to the two piece technology, the flex delivered by the Boss allows for the bat to make solid and impressive contact with a handful of different ball types. While a typical softball bat may require some break-in time, the Boss virtually burns off the wrapper. Going with a camo colorway this time around, Boombah has created a stick that not only gets it done at the plate, but looks great as well.
Breaking out the Boombah Boss, a few things are immediately apparent. While some power bats can be categorized into specific styles and hitter types, the Boss plays directly into the hitters hands. Crushing long bombs while also delivering scorching line drives, the Boss utilizes a massive sweet spot to consistently deliver impressive performance. Spraying the ball to all fields is done with ease thanks to the impressive flex and connection that the Boss delivers across the barrel.
As a line drive hitter myself, it’s hard not to see how the Boss will not only add distance to your base hits, but also increase the power and speed off of the bat. While last season’s model came out impressive on its own, the 2015 version raises the bar to a whole new level.
Wear and tear on the grip tape and handle may have been the lone downside of the previous model, and Boombah took aim right at the issue this time around. While the taping is white and will quickly show wear, it’s durability has been significantly increased. Still providing a ton of comfort, the handle has been reinforced and also brandishes the camo pattern.
Coming in at a lower price point than much of the competition ($199.99), the Boss is easily one of the premier bats on the market for the upcoming season. This is a must own model, and something that bags across the country should be carrying.
