UNLEASH YOUR POTENTIAL

You’ve got the drive to be the best, and now it’s time to put your words into action. Lock a Blast Swing Analyzer into the knob of the Rawlings Mantra, and you’ll tap into the power of the industry’s first smart bat fully engineered for softball players just like you. It’s time to show the world what you’re capable of and turn your swing into on-field results. It’s time to let your Mantra be heard! 

MEASURE WHAT MATTERS

With Blast Softball and the Rawlings Mantra Smart Bat, every swing is automatically captured and assessed. Get real-time metrics feedback, review your swing quality with Plane, Connection, and Rotation (PCR), and check out your personal Player Report when your hitting session is done to visualize your swing performance. The Blast app provides a simple green, yellow, or red visual indicator to let you see where you need to focus, with drills and recommendations for improvement.

RECRUITING ADVANTAGE

Did you know that objective Blast data is the player evaluation and recruiting standard used by hundreds of colleges, elite development leagues, and nearly every pro team across the country? If you want to stand out from the crowd and get recruited, you need to continually assess your swing and share your skills with coaches and collegiate recruiters. With Blast Player Profiles, it’s never been easier.

THE POWER OF IN-GAME DATA

Coaches and recruiters agree – the most valuable swing information comes from in-game data. It allows them to see how a player performs under pressure and it lets coaches see if their training is translating into on-field results. This season, when you step up to the plate, do it with confidence. Your Blast powered Mantra bat is approved for in-game use, which means all eyes will be on you … and your data.

Check the serial number on your Blast sensor and ensure it’s a 12 digit number where the second digit, on the top row, is a 5 or greater and the last 4 digits are 1923 or higher. You can find the serial number on the back of the swing analyzer or in your Blast Motion app under “My Sensor”. If you have an older Blast sensor, leave the sensor plug installed and use the clear Blast bat attachment included in the Blast product packaging.
