2022 True Temper HZRDUS USSSA Drop 8
Find Similar Bats

We like the idea of the drop 8 in a USSSA hybrid over that of a drop 10. The added weight plays better in alloy barrels and those who like stiffer feels, like the HZRDUS has when compared to the True Temper Rake, and a more focused barrel don't need as light a swing. The drop 8 comes in half sizes.
