Single piece aluminum bats with extended composite end caps like the Fuze 360 swing ultra light. It feels remarkably light but still has enough of a barrel to be taken seriously. Although the Fuze 360 Hybrid in BBCOR is considerably different than the USA and USSSA versions of the bat it also has a focus on a light swing weight with a reasonable barrel. Our hitters liked the general feel of all the bats and the sound on contact. The performance out of the wrapper was as good as we could hope for. We especially liked the drop 10 USA version of the bat which swung light and drove the ball as well as the Solo, which is a huge hit in the USA space.
The 2020 Easton Fuze 360 is built for the kid who likes the power that comes from the stiff feel of a single piece aluminum bat but wants the added length they can get from using bat with a low MOI (swing weight). If you've maxed out the 34 inches in the Fuze we suggest looking towards a more end loaded single piece like an Easton Alpha or Slugger Omaha. But, if you want as much barrel as you can get in a single piece aluminum then the Fuze 360 is a reasonable choice.
The 2020 Fuze is so different than the 2019 Fuze in BBCOR that its not even worth comparing. The 2020 version is a hybrid bat in BBCOR while the 2019 version was a single piece with an extended composite end cap. The USA and USSSA versions didn't even exist in 2019.
As we've mentioned above, the USA and USSSA Easton 360 Fuze is a single piece bat with an extended end cap made of composite. This composite end cap helps bring down the total swing weight of the bat. As well, the bat comes stock with a custom Lizard Skin grip. The alloy in the barrel is the same they have used for a few years in their top end aluminum bats. They refer to it as the ATAC alloy. The BBCOR version of the 2020 Easton Fuze 360 Hybrid uses the same alloy as the USA and USSSA (ATAC), but it adds the composite handle found in the more expensive ADV 360. The connection piece, same as in the ADV 360, is connected to that ATAC alloy giving it a ready to go out of the wrapper performance.
