2023 Rawlings Mantra 2.0 Review

They have added a new handle design and an extremely lightweight end cap to make the 2023 Rawlings Mantra 2.0 more durable than the previous one.

Also, the makers have further improved the F2 Collar to eliminate all the vibrations as another much-needed upgrade to the 2022 Mantra.

The in-hand feel of the bat is comfortable, and the bat swings lightly due to a balanced build profile.

Pricing of the bat is also reasonable, and it is a cheaper alternative to some of the overpriced high-performing bats in the market, such as the 2023 Easton Ghost Unlimited fastpitch bat.

For an in-depth analysis of the Rawlings Mantra 2.0 fastpitch bat, continue reading this review.

Build Quality

The new 2023 Rawlings Mantra 2.0 for softball fastpitch is the most well-balanced bat, as its weight is evenly divided throughout.

Due to the balanced weight, the Mantra 2.0 bat swings lightly and throws the pitches out of the field effortlessly.

So, the players who are just starting their fastpitch softball career feel at home with this bat as they do not need to put in extra effort to pull the shots.

Also, the Rawlings Mantra 2.0 for 2023 has a highly responsive and huge sweet spot, so the young players practice their game without experiencing any mishits. 


The performance of the Mantra 2.0 softball bat for fastpitch is comparable to one of the most popular bats of the season, its Easton Ghost competitor.

It has a highly efficient vibration-dampening system for ensuring consistent and comfortable hitting practice without causing unrest in the softballers' hands.

Also, the upgraded F2 Collar does the job more efficiently.

Like Easton Ghost Advanced competitor, the in-hand feel of this fastpitch softball bat is highly comfortable and grippy.

Reasons to consider

This fastpitch bat is a highly durable bat. The strong durability of this bat is due to the new handle profile and a newly added ultra-light end cap. This bat outshines Easton Ghost competitors due to its increased durability.

Moreover, the in-hand feel  is also comfortable and solid, like the 2022 model.

It feels as smooth and grippy as the Easton Ghost Advanced.

Also, the bat offers incredibly efficient performance in the field.

Reasons to avoid

Everything about this bat is great, from durability to performance, in-hand feel to pricing.

However, we would have liked it more if it came with more upgrades to the previous model and not just an added end cap for increased durability.

Value for money

There is hardly anything you would dislike about this bat.

The bat costs a reasonable amount of money, far less than a similar-performing bat, i.e., Easton Ghost.

So, this season's Mantra 2.0 bat for fastpitch is absolutely value for money.

If you like this bat so far then you should also check the Rawlings Mantra+ review as well.
