2021 DeMarini The Goods One Piece USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

Although more expensive than we like to see single piece alloy bats in the USSSA youth space, we are big fans of the 2021 Drop 10 USSSA The Goods One Piece. It's got a great barrel profile, fantastic feel on hits, and good middle of the road swing weight. It has done very well in our exit speed tests, and we think it one of the better bats in the USSSA market this year. If you like single-piece bats in the drop 10 space, this one is a win. The only real downfall, aside from the fact we think it's $30 more expensive than it should be, is that it only comes in three lengths.

The USSSA Drop 10 5150 From Rawlings is an entry-level youth bat with a stiff feel, moderately sized barrel, and balanced swing. Players looking for the most USSSA bats can offer won't find this bat appealing. However, those looking for a basic entry level bat for the newer rec player will find this both the right price and the right swing weight.

The drop 10 Rawlings 5150 for 2021 is an entry-level bat with a good brand name, lots of durabilities, and a balanced swing. It comes in a 27 through 31 inch and swings heavier than the drop 11. We consider this an entry-level bat that will leave a lot to be desired from the elite and serious youth player. However, those looking for a decent to the good entry-level rec player in the 9 through 11-year-old space should be happy with this one.
