2019 Quatro PRO Models

Our hitters found the feel on the Quatro, especially the BBCOR, to be perfect. The swing weight was lighter than most bats and the barrel size bigger than most bats. The price point compares to other bats of its type (two piece composite). Generally, exit speeds were above average with the BBCOR outshining everything.

General Recommendations

We think the 2019 Rawlings Quatro is a great combination of the 2017/18 version and the newer 2020/21 versions. That is, it has the same kind of feel as the 2017 but has more durability than the 2020/21 version. That might be more perception than reality. But, in fact, the 2019 Rawlings Quatro is our favorite Quatro of the bunch.

Reviews By Model

Previous Bats

They changed a few things on the 2019 Quatro. Enough so that buying last year's model will likely yeild a different experience. Here are some of the changes:

  • New dimension to the collar to help with better sting dampening.
  • Decreasing the swing weight by a couple percentage points.
  • Moving the inner barrel towards the middle.
The 2019 change also improved the durability. Early reports show the bat is holding up a bit better. The 2018 version was notorious for cracking early. But, before you get the impression we think that is a bad thing, the bat was crazy hot. BBCOR and USA exit speeds showed top of the class. As such, we'd recommend the 2019 version over the 2018 version---although the price gap may be tempting. Of course at some price the 2018 version is a fantastic get---especially in the BBCOR space. But, in terms of a used 2018 USA bat on ebay, we would avoid this time around.


As we mention above, the Rawlings Quatro is a two piece composite bat. Two piece composite bats are generally built with the idea of a light swing and a big barrel. Of course there are notable exceptions to this. Unique to Rawlings' two piece design is a synthetic collar that surrounds the connection point. For 2019 this has been upgraded to reduce more sting from mishits. As well, Rawling's uses a floating inner barrel towards the end of the bat. This extra barrel allows for better trampoline effect at slower impact speeds as well as a sort of governor to keep it from overdoing the restriction limits. In 2019, the inner barrel was moved more towards the knob of the bat to reduce swing weight and, hopefully, improve durability.
