2022 Marucci F5 Review

We think the 2022 Marucci F5 is the most underrated bat for 2022. It’s inexpensive, has a massive barrel and hits the ball as well as any BBCOR, USSSA or USA bat out there. We think the durability/denting problems might occur on the lighter swinging drop 10 and 11s for the hitters who swing hard—so they should size up to that drop 8 as soon as possible. Other wise, an inexpensive bat with a great feel, great company behind it and a big hit can be found in the 2022 Marucci F5.

Comparable Bats

More than a few bats are in the single piece alloy space that have a light swing. However, few of them are as inexpensive as the F5. We’ll take the F5 over the Voodoo One any day at these price points. The ball can get hit just as hard.

Previous Bats

There are no significant or measurable chagnes in the 2020 F5 to the 2022 Maruci F5. It is the same bat with a different paint job.


Marucci’s 2022 F5 is built with multi-variable wall thickness. It uses different depths of alloy in the barrel to extend the sweet spot. It also swings light. These are features in bats that often price out two times its amount.
