The 2023 The Goods in USA gets fantastic reviews. We are fans. It swings light, has a great feel, and can hit the ball really hard. The barrel profile is small---as is to be expected in an alloy barrel in the USA space. But, overall, it gets excellent ratings and, with the USA pop restrictions, can perform as well as any other USA bat on the market. Kids who can handle a bit of weight and want a great feel should check this out.
If you need a drop 10 USA bat and don't want to spend top dollar for an ADV 360, and don't like the idea of the Marucci CAT Composite, than The Goods is an excellent choice. The barrel is pretty short, but it feels great and if you square one up it will go as far as anything else on the market.
There are no differences between the 2022 and 2023 versions of the bat other than the paint job.
This Two-Piece Hybrid Baseball Bat features a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter and a balanced swing feel. It combines an alloy barrel with a composite handle. The bat proudly displays the USA Bat Certification Stamp and is approved for play in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, Pony, and NABF Baseball. It comes in a blue and white colorway. The X14 Alloy Barrel is precision engineered with consistent walls for improved performance, swing speed, and durability. The Paraflex Plus Composite Handle helps deliver excellent bat speed and feel upon contact with the baseball. The Type V Connection Point directs energy transfer into the barrel while minimizing vibrations in the handle. The Tracer End Cap, made with lightweight composite materials, enhances bat speed without compromising power barrel performance.
