After some good time in the cage with the Adidas Aero Burner Composite, as well as conversations with vendors and emails with the manufacturers about the bat, we have gathered enough information to present this review.

We found, on the whole, this bat is an upgrade to last year's EQT RBZ X3, a sweet-swinging two-piece composite, and a fitting complement to the single-piece Aero Burner Adidas also makes. The big barrel and light swinging two-piece composite space is chuck full of legit options. Adidas produces the bat in limited sizes, but if this is the type of bat you should be looking for and they make it in your size, we recommend the AeroBurner Comp go on your shortlist.

General Recommendations

As a new iteration on the 2016 EQT RBZ X3, the Aero Burner Comp is made for players looking for an ultra-light swing and a composite barrel that needs some working-in. The two-piece design gives a real smooth feel even when it isn't that great at contact. As such, we would recommend the bat for players who:

  • Want an oversized composite barrel with a buttery smash
  • Need or prefer a light swing
  • Play in BBCOR or Big Barrel (there is no youth)
  • Have or want to afford the budget
Players who should keep looking include those who:
  • Need or prefer a heavier swing weight
  • Need a short BBCOR (it only comes in a 32, 33 and 34)
  • Are looking for a "value" buy

2017 Adidas Aero Burner Composite Review Much like the 2016 Adidas RBZ EQT X3, the 2017 Aero Burner Composite is a two piece composite bat with a large barrel and a light swing. Expect a similar feel to other "balanced" two piece composite bats on the market. Don't confuse this Aero Burner Comp with the Aero Burner. The Aero Burner is a single piece aluminum bat with a slight end load. Compared to the 2016 RBZ version, the Aero Burner Composite comes with a lighter swing weight. Adidas accomplished this by upgrading the end cap on the previous version. As well, as we mention above, they added a 2 3/4 drop 10 to the sizing option.
