2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro Review

By Bat Digest | Last Updated August 2, 2022


The jury is still out if the improvements to the barrel, connection piece, and knob are worth the changes for the 2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro in USSSA and BBCOR. But, the changes are more than just cosmetic. Are they a change for good or modifications for the sake of change we will see as the season progresses (and we update this page with what we find)? But, to be sure, we are watching the 2022 Quatro Pro with a lot of interest.

2022 Quatro Pro Models


There’s still a lot to learn about the 2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro. The bat is changed from the 2021 and previous year’s versions of the Quatro Pro. But are the changes for changes’ sake, or are they for goodness sake? Time will only tell, but we have high hopes for the Quatro Pro and will update this page when we get more information and data on the 2022 Quatro Pro. But, with changes to the knob, a redesigned barrel and a new connecting piece, the 2022 Quatro Pro has some serious legs.

General Recomendations

Generally, the two-piece composite Rawlings Quatro Pro is built for hitters looking for the most amount of bat speed in a bat that feels great and has a huge barrel. For bigger hitters who want a similar feel but want more swing weight, if they can’t get what they want by simply sizing up in the Quatro Pro, t the new 2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro MAX (in BBCOR only) is an interesting take.

Rawlings
The 2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro MAX is the same as the Quatro Pro but added swing weight. The bat is similar in thinking to Slugger's META PWR. The bat is built for the big hitter who likes all the features of a two-piece composite (big barrel, great feel, superb sound) but needs an end load. The Quatro Pro Max is a BBCOR only bat and comes in only a 32 through 34. Our gut sense here is that the bat won't sell very often, and very few will find it the right for them. However, the occasional college-level hitter who likes the two-piece composite vibe but can't get enough swing weight out of their Quatro Pro will find value in the 2022 Quatro Max.

Rawlings
There's a lot to learn about the new and redesigned 2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro. A stiffer feel and a more consistent barrel are what the USSSA form 2021 was lacking, so these improvements might be a welcome change. The added knob tech that allows for a blast motion (sold separately) to insert seamlessly in the bat is also a nice touch. But the CF and CAT 9 Composite have run away with this field. The added ZOA from DeMarini only makes it more difficult, but we do expect to see the Quatro Pro for 2022 make some headway in 2022. We'll update this as more information comes to light.

Comparable Bats

There are several two-piece composite bats built with a big barrel and light swing. These types of bats attracted the good to great hitter who plays a lot of baseball, prefers light swings and wants a big barrel and top-end performance. Easton’s version is called the ADV Hype (previously known as the ADV 360); DeMarini has a CF and a ZOA; Marucci has the CAT 9 Composite; Louisville Slugger has a Prime and Meta. The 2022 Quatro from Rawlings is their take on this premium lineup.

Construction

Like previous years, the 2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro is a two-piece composite bat with a massive barrel and ultra-light swing. Major changes come in the knob which is built to hold a Blast Motion sensor and a reengineered connection piece for greater stiffness. Still, though, the bat is made with a big barrel and a light swing which is what hitters expect from the Rawlings Quatro Pro. It comes in a USSSA drop 10, 8 and 5 and a BBCOR version.

Overall Ratings

The overall rating uses seven different weighted metrics to determine our overall score. Half of total rating comes from the player and our exit speed tests (Player Rating: 25%, Performance: 25%).The other categories are Relevance (20%), Demand (10%), Durability (10%), Resell Score (5%), and Tech Specs (5%).

*: When a bat is denoted by a star (*) it is a preliminary rating. Expect it to be updated as we learn more about the bat and gather more data.

(PlaRa) Player Rating: We measure player rating from user reviews. Those users include our own hitters that we test at the lab as well as reviews we find online.

(ExVe) Performance: Performance measures the exit speeds and distances we capture in our hitting lab with HitTrax using these bats.

(Relv) Relevance: We measure the number of sizes and the MOI of the bat. Bats with a wider range of options get a better score.

(Dmnd) Demand: Demand is measured by consumer sentiment and the buzz around the bat.

(Drb) Durability: A bat’s durability is measured by user reviews as well as feedback from manufacturers.

(ReSl) Resell Score: Based on the price the bats go for used. Higher prices mean greater user demand which means, generally, a better bat. A resell value closer to its original price means a higher score.

(Tech) Tech Specs: We rate the bat on its technological advancements from previous years and compared to the industry at large. This is our chance to reward companies who are trying to innovate.
MOI
MOI or Mass Moment of Inertia is a measurement of bat swing weight. This quantifies how difficult it is to swing a bat. The industry often refers to this as things like End Load or Balanced but those words have been overused to the point of meaninglessness. We measure the actual swing weights of each bat we test using the industry-standard pendulum period, balance point, and scale weight. You can read more about that here.
Price
The price is the original MSRP price of the bat.
Type
The types of bats are single-piece alloy (SPA), two-piece composite (TPC), single-piece composite (SPC), hybrid (Hyb.), and wood (Wood). Hybrid bats are made of composite handles and alloy barrles.
Date
The estimated date the bat began distribution.
