2022 Marucci CAT USA Drop 11
Find Similar Bats

The 2022 Marucci CAT USA is a new bat for the 2022 lineup---that is, it isn't a repaint of the previous years USA Bat. This new version has a 2 5/8 barrel (the last had a 2 1/2) with an upgraded alloy and look. It still uses the anti-vibration knob, is a one piece alloy bat and a balanced swing. We think the bat will work well for that serious entry level player looking for a stiff feel and a light swing on a well known and made bat.

2022 Louisville Slugger Solo USA Drop 11
Find Similar Bats

The Solo in USA drop 10 for 2022 is a legit bat with a good-sized barrel that has been a fan favorite since USA's inception in 2018. The bat is light, has a less unreasonable price point, and comes in a huge swath of sizes to fit just about player. Performance-wise it does really well and clearly meets the USA standard. We don't think anyone will be writing home to grandma about the SOLO in USA for 2022 (it hasn't changed from 2021), but we do think you'll get a quality bat for reasonable price that will last and work well.

Although a bit on the heavier side for a drop 11, it swings right in line with other drop 10 bats in the USA space. So, if you consider this drop 11 as a drop 10, it is, as far as we measured, one of the very best bats in the industry. The Easton ADV 360 Drop 11 USA bat is a huge barrel, balanced swing, and knockout performance. It reminds us a lot of the Orange Easton MAKO as any USA bat to date ever has.

The 2019 Louisivlle Slugger SOLO is a reprint of the 2018 version and there is nothing wrong with that. The bat is a single-piece aluminum stick with an extended composite end cap to help bring down the swing weight. Despite it's classification as a drop 11, the bat swings as heavy as many drop 10's and, if you remember, this 2nd year of the USA bat standard put bats all over the place.
