2024 Rawlings ICON Glowstick Review

The 2024 Rawlings ICON Glowstick is a BBCOR bat that is a cosmetic change compared to the 2023 version of the bat. This 2024 special edition is a throwback to the 2017/18 Rawlings Quatro that killed balls (but didn’t last too long).


2024 Icon Glowstick Models

Models Overview

Batters seeking reach with each swing may find the Rawlings Glowstick ICON to their liking. This bat has a big barrel with an elegant swing feel. For those in pursuit of Rawlings’ best in the realm of high school baseball, this bat stands out as the top choice.


General Recommendations

If you want a big-time BBCOR bat with a composite barrel, then this is a great choice. We like the above-average swing weight (for a composite bat, atleast) as well as the great feel on hits and mishits alike.

Reviews By Model

Comparable Bats

Big barrels on flexible-feeling two-piece composite bats are plentiful. Look closely at a bat like Marucci’s CAT X Composite or Louisville Slugger’s META in BBCOR for a similar bat to the 2024 Rawlings Glowstick Icon.

Previous Bats

This is the same as the 2023 Rawlings ICON, but it has a ‘glowstick’ color. Same bat, same price, different color.

Construction

The 2024 Rawlings ICON uses an ‘In/Tense Carbon Composite’ for the barrel. This seamless barrel construction (think Combat Maxum) gives a massive barrel. The connection piece is stiffer than the Quatro, which we believe many will like. The bat swings light with a lot of its weight towards the hands.

Our Parting Pitch

If you want the best Rawlings has to offer, as well as a big barrel, and lighter swing then the 2024 Rawlings ICON BBCOR is for you. If you like this more than the gold colorway of 2023, here you go.
