2022 Warstic Gunner Review

Looking for a hybrid bat with a good sized barrel, middle plus sort of swing weight, and a great feel? The 2022 Warstic Gunner in BBCOR is a great pick. Hybrid bats aren’t that attractive in the USSSA space—losing ground to their two piece composite peers or a less expensive single piece alloys. But, if you want a hybrid bat in USSSA the Gunner likely has a size for as it comes in a drop 5, 8 and 10.

Models Overview

The 2022 Warstic Gunner is a Hybrid bat with a slightly heavier than average swing weight that packs an absolute punch. The bat hits the ball as well as anything we’ve tested in the BBCOR space and is recommended across the board for those in the power alley game. USSSA hitters who can handle some weight, don’t want to spend top dollar for a two-piece composite and like the idea of something off the beaten path will surely love the feel and performance of the 2022 Gunner.

General Recommendations

The 2022 Gunner, much different than it’s previous bat under the same name, is built for a big hitters that like the idea of a hybrid. Those in the BBCOR space looking at bats like The Goods, Select PWR and TRUE HZRDUS should have the Gunner on their short list too.

Previous Bats

The 2022 Warstic Gunner is much different than the 2020 version. Most companies, frankly, would have changed the name of the bat because it is so much different. But, Warstic beats to its own drum and there’s nothing wrong with that. This bat has a middle-of-the-road swing weight, a great feel on its connection piece, and has a good-sized barrel. Don’t think the previous Gunner is a replacement or repaint from the 2022.


Warstic is a two-piece hybrid bat with a big barrel profile, middle plus swing weight and a range or sizes.
