Best WIFFLE ® Ball Bat | Plastic Dingers

Are you looking for the best Wiffle ball bat? After more research and testing than we’d like to admit, we got you covered

By Brian Duryea | @BatDigestLast Updated: August 4, 2022

We’ve tested more Wiffle ball bats than we care to admit. But, after a good summer of testing, we think the best Wiffle Ball bat is the Blitzball Bat. If we had more money than sense, then the Moonshot line is a fantastic choice. It is a full composite; the single-piece Bat explicitly made for playing Wiffle Ball. It only, cough, runs $300.

For the Blitzball, we like its length, balance, durability, and the fact you can find it in many places.

Of course, traditionalists will call us out on the Wiffle Ball bat. Indeed, “Wiffle” ball bats are WIFFLE® ball bats. WIFFLE® (all capitals) is the brand name for mainly plastic baseball bats and plastic balls.

Best Wiffle Ball Bats

In the purest form, the best Wiffle ball bat is the ONLY WIFFLE® ball bat. There can be no other one. But we still like the Blitzball better.

Pros
  • Cheap
  • Classic
  • Smooth
Cons
  • None
Pricing

This replica of the infamous bat used by the iconic Ken Griffey, Jr. comprises injection-molded plastic. Due to its construction is a very durable piece of equipment that is void of compromising mass. It measures 33 inches, providing an adequate reach across any strike zone. Unfortunately, the bat does possess a slight bend, but it does not appear to affect its performance. Also, note that there is a slight wobble if it is swung hard.

  • MLB Approved
Cons
  • Not durable for adults.

Best Expensive Wiffle Ball bat

4. Moonshot K12 REV2
Pros
  • Amazing
  • Hit the Crap out of a Plastic Ball
Cons
  • Very Expensive
Pricing

Moonshot bats range in prices from as low as a couple of hundred dollars to well over three hundred dollars. And the only place you can buy them, as far as we could tell, was directly on their site.

These bats are ridiculous. Full single-piece composite bats built for the very serious Wiffle Ball player. They feel great, hit the ball a mile and can last forever if you take care of it. If you're in a serious Wiffle Ball league then this is a place to look. We're not sure we'd ever pay $300 for a plastic bat, but to each his own.
