2022 Easton Hype BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The 2022 Easton ADV Hype is Easton's top of the line BBCOR bat for 2022. It replaces the ADV 360 as the feature bat with a newly designed barrel, handle and connection piece. Although still a light swinging two-piece composite bat, it is different enough to be considered a measurable change from the 2021 Easton ADV 360. The price, you will note, is also the most expensive BBCOR bat Easton has ever tried to sell.

2022 DeMarini ZOA DL BBCOR

The 2020 DeMarini ZOA DL is a two-piece composite bat with a big barrel and many redesigned features when compared to the CF. The DL version of the bat is the DeMarini D-Lab version of the bat---which is their properitery "lab" that sells specific bats. It is the same as the non-DL BBCOR version but with a different paint job.
