Assuming you find yourself in the two-piece composite 33 or 34-inch BBCOR space, the Aero Burner is an option. Everyone else is out of luck, as that is the only size this bat is made. If that is one of you, and you are an elite High School or Collegiate hitter, we suggest you also consider aluminum barrels and stiffer bats. Big-time players tend to prefer these features in the BBCOR space as they act and feel more like wood. However, if you are in the market for a 33 and 34-inch BBCOR bat and want to stick with a two-piece composite as well as want the best looking one on the market, the 2018 Adidas Aero Burner Comp might be the bat for you.
There is nothing remarkable about the connective piece of the bat. Most other companies have some technology they like to discuss when it comes to the connective piece of their high-end composite designs, but Adidas calls it an Energy connective piece and moves on. In some regard, we can appreciate the acceptance that the bat's features are about the barrel, handle and grip instead of some nuanced connective piece. The most technically impressive feature of the 2018 Aero Burner is the end cap. This new piece to the 2018 version allowed for a slightly lighter design and more extended barrel size. Aesthetically the bat is brilliant, we think. Never underestimate Adidas' ability to create stunning sports equipment.
Adidas' 2018 Aero has all the features that justify the price point. That is the price of the Aero Burner prices out like other two-piece composite bats in the market. The idea is for a light swinging big barreled two-piece bat that is easy on the hands. Our overall experience was it did an excellent job of dampening sting, but not as good as a few of the other BBCOR bats we like.
