2022 Combat B2 Ultra USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

The 2022 Combat B2 ATB Drop 10 USSSA Bat is a single-piece composite built with a huge barrel and light swing. This is a JustBats produced and backed bat and a reprint of the 2020 version that was white with black lettering. This bat is available on JustBats directly but don't expect it to be found elsewhere (except for maybe eBay occasionally). The drop 10 JustBats/Combat B2 is a big barrel and a light swing and built like the Combat Maxum of days gone by (circa 2018).

2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

There's a lot to learn about the new and redesigned 2022 Rawlings Quatro Pro. A stiffer feel and a more consistent barrel are what the USSSA form 2021 was lacking, so these improvements might be a welcome change. The added knob tech that allows for a blast motion (sold separately) to insert seamlessly in the bat is also a nice touch. But the CF and CAT 9 Composite have run away with this field. The added ZOA from DeMarini only makes it more difficult, but we do expect to see the Quatro Pro for 2022 make some headway in 2022. We'll update this as more information comes to light.

2022 True Temper HZRDUS USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

We're usually a hard pass on a hybrid bat in the USSSA space. While this drop 10 HZRDUS doesn't change our mind completely, we still think two piece composites with their bigger barrels and lighter swings are generally better choices, if there were the hitter out there who wanted a heavier swinging with an alloy barrel then this might be it. Granted, if you wanted a heavier swing than go for the drop 8 USSSA HZRDUS. If you wanted a light swing with an alloy barrel/hybrid design then look for a bat like the True Temper Rake. Still, though, if you're looking for a drop 10 with a slight end load in an alloy barrel in the USSSA space then the HZRDUS drop 10 might be it. Or, if you really want to dial in the 1/2 options it might be a good fit too.

The 2022 Louisville Slugger Prime in USA is a drop 10 with a good barrel profile and middle-of-the-road swing weight. Overshadowed by more popular bats like the ADV, the Slugger Prime is an under-the-radar pick that gets great feedback, hits the ball hard and has a really good feel on both hits and mishits. Made for the kid who plays a lot of baseballs we think it is an underrated pick in the 2022 USA space. (And we also think its graphics are the best of the year).

The 2022 DeMarini ZOA in USSSA Drop 10 is a two-piece composite bat with a big barrel and light swing. Compared to other drop 10s, it is a bit stiffer in the connection joint which gives more feedback on the hands. The two-piece composite barrel sounds great and competes with the CF, its sister bat, for space. If you want a top-of-the-line USSSA bat in a drop 10 that is not named the CF, then the ZOA could be your best bet. (That assumes, of course, that you want to pay $50 more dollars too).

2022 DeMarini The Goods USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

Armed with a new end cap and connection point for 2022, the DeMarini The Goods USSSA Drop 10 hopes to make some inroads in a niche dominated by two-piece composite bats. It has a heavier swing for most drop 10's, but DeMarini added a lighter end cap this year to bring it into the normal range. Our guess is most kids will like the bat, but not by enough to put down their CF. However, the kid who wants an alloy barrel on a model with fantastic recognition could really like the 2022 Demarini The Goods USSSA in a drop 10. Also, although the same name as the drop 5, the bats differ a lot and shouldn't be considered changes in swing weight only.

The bat is not rated for higher pitch speeds, which is why it is less expensive than the drop USSSA version of the bat. It could also work perfectly fine for that new t ball player just getting a feel for the game.

The Omaha in USA for 2022 is an entry-level performance bat made for the hitter who wants a bigger barrel on a single-piece alloy. Although this bat might not feel as good as more expensive bats when poor contact is made, the bat can hit the ball just as far as anything else in the USA standard. The swing weight is balanced and the sizes from 27 through 32-inch should fit most players. The USA Omaha isn't anything to get too excited about, but it will hit the ball hard when squared up and, at a reasonable price, it's a value buy through and through.

The Drop 10 Solo is our highest-rated USSSA SOLO bat mainly due to its versatility. The bat comes in a huge range of sizes (26 through 31) and with a light swing weight and has a fit for basically any 7 through 11-year-old. The bat also performs admirably. Granted, most serious players like the feel of more expensive two-piece composites and, as such, tend to swing harder and with a bit more consistency. But, the right hitter---especially that entry-level comp and travel player looking for as much bat speed as possible that also doesn't want to break the bank.
