2022 Louisville Slugger Meta PWR BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

Built for power, the 2022 Meta PWR (-3) BBCOR Bat from Louisville Slugger is here to help you elevate your game. The Meta PWR shares the same backbone as the Meta with two key differences. The high-performing EKO™ composite barrel still delivers a sound unlike anything in the game, however the Meta PWR has a higher swing weight to ensure that elite athletes can squeeze every ounce of performance out of the barrel. In addition, the three-piece patented 3FX™ Connection System is fine-tuned for an even stiffer feel to help maximize the energy transfer on contact and pairs perfectly with this bat’s monstrous sweet spot. We maximized the barrel length with the Premium GT1™ End Cap and added a touch of weight to the end of the barrel, putting the finishing touches on one of our most powerful bats ever.

The 2021 Widowmaker is a BBCOR bat with an endload. We like the barrel feel and its stiffness. This bat is clearly made for big hitters. Average to smaller hitters will appreciate a different stick. D1 type players who need as much bat as any inch can offer will like the 2021 Anderson Widowmaker.

2021 Victus Nox BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The Victus Nox, for a first run bat, is fantastic. They claim the bat is endloaded, but our measurement showed it to be about average in the 33-Inch BBCOR market. The two-piece connection gives a semi-flexible feel on bad hits and feels great when you really dial it in. In terms of exit speeds, the bat did as well as anything in the BBCOR space---as most BBCOR bats perform really close to the limit. The Nox is for a hitter who wants a two-piece hybrid bat with a balanced swing. Victus uses a two-year release model, so the 2021 is the same as the 2020.

2021 Warstic Bonesaber BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The Warstic Bonesaber is a single-piece alloy bat with a balanced swing and a unique tapered handle. The barrel profile isn't amazing, but the bat feels great, and if you can square up a ball consistently, you'll love the feel and performance of the bat. It's a stiff feel as most single piece alloy bats are, and the range of sizes makes a reasonable option for hitters looking for something unique. There is a black and cream-colored one---both are the same bat but for the color scheme. As well, previous versions of the bat have changed the color design only.

The 2021 Mizuno PWR CRBN in BBCOR has a MAAASSSIVE barrel. It has the largest barrel profile of all BBCOR bats---just a bit bigger than the Easton Maxum Utlra. It swings right between the balanced and balanced+ group. So, in other words, on the verge of feeling a bit heavy, but not that bad. Our hitters were impressed by the big barrel, wish the connection piece was stiffer, and liked the Exit Speeds on this can't miss barrel.

For a bat most have never heard of, we think Mizuno's BBCOR Hot Metal is as good as single piece alloys come. It has a good-sized barrel, a nice and slightly above average swing weight, and performs as well as any BBCOR on the market. If you want a single piece alloy off the beaten path with a good sound and decent price point, then the 2021 Mizuno Hot Metal could be your trick.

2021 Louisville Slugger Omaha BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The 33 and 34-inch BBCOR versions of the Slugger Omaha are considered end-loaded. The 29 through 32 inches are balanced. This dynamic swing weight serves those who need a 33/34 better. Overall, the 2021 BBCOR Omaha is a single-piece bat with a big barrel and decent feel. Our exit speeds show the bat performs as well as any on the market. The 2021 model only has distribution on Slugger's site directly, and that lack of awareness pushes down its relevance and demand. To make matters worse, they raised the starting price by $50 over the 2020. Its 29 through 34-inch lengths, though, do make it an option for every player that can find it.
