2022 DeMarini Zoa USSSA Drop 10

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).
