2021 DeMarini The Goods One Piece USSSA Drop 8
Find Similar Bats

Our hitters liked the drop 8 more than the drop 10. That added weight balance really helped to dampen the sting on mishit balls. But, to be sure, we wouldn't recommend the drop 8 if it were the wrong size. The 2021 Demarini The Goods USSSA drop 8 is a single-piece alloy with a good-sized barrel, balanced swing (for a drop 8), and top-end performance on our exit speed tests. Our review rates it

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.

The 2021 Marucci CAT 9 Connect in BBCOR is a two piece hybrid bat with a semi-flexible connection and a bit of an end load. We think it a great fit for the player who wants a hybrid but doesn't want the end load or stiffer feel of a bat like The Goods. As well, the barrel on the CAT 9 Connect is plenty large and it is one of our favorite BBCOR swings for 2021.

The 2021 Louisville Slugger Meta PWR is the Meta PWR with an extreme end load. The bat's MOI (swing weight) is in the top 10% of the industry for the given length. It's built for the big hitter who wants more mass in their two-piece composite. As such, the 31 and 32-inch don't make much sense to us. Those who want a 31 and 32-inch PWR should get an inch longer in the non-PWR version. The 31 and 34 are were not available at the bats' release, but we are told they will eventually be available.

Easton's B5 for 2021 is a nostalgic homage to days gone by. Its aesthetic design replicates that of the '80s. But, at its heart, it's a single-piece aluminum that appears to be the Alpha XL last year. It is a single-piece bat with a serious end load, stiff feel and really good performance. We liked the Alpha XL for what it was as well as the B5 for what it is. You'll pay a premium for the throwback paint job and great look. In the end, its a stiff, big barrelled single piece aluminum built for the big hitter who is capable of getting the most out of just about any bat.

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.

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.

If the bat can hold up to its durability claims, it might surpass the CF as the best drop 10 on the market. As always, we wish it was cheaper, but it isn't an unheard of price. This is an easy win for us, and, again, if it can be durable, the bat will be one of our favorite USSSA drop 10's on the market---maybe even our most favorite.

It's the biggest difference is the stiffness of contact. There's more feedback in this bat than in the CF---which is ultra-smooth. So, if you want a stiff feeling, drop 5 bats with a good barrel, great user ratings, and price point to save you a few bucks (compared to the CF), then this is your bat.

Louisville Slugger's Solo in a USSSA Drop 8 swings lighter than the drop 8 USSSA average, but not by much. This is a single-piece bat with a stiff feel and good-sized barrel. Hitters swinging a 31 or 32-inch drop 10 might find a lot of value in dropping an inch and going for the drop 8 instead. That added weight takes away some of the hand-sting and the heavier drop only adds power. Overall, the bat is a fantastic bat for the right type of hitter.

Louisville Slugger's Solo in a USSSA Drop 8 swings lighter than the drop 8 USSSA average, but not by much. This is a single-piece bat with a stiff feel and good-sized barrel. Hitters swinging a 31 or 32-inch drop 10 might find a lot of value in dropping an inch and going for the drop 8 instead. That added weight takes away some of the hand-sting and the heavier drop only adds power. Overall, the bat is a fantastic bat for the right type of hitter. Full Review

The drop 5 USSSA 2021 Louisville Slugger Solo works well for the hitter forced to use a drop 5 but still needs a light swing. The other light swinging option in a drop 5 (VELO) swings even lighter than the Solo. But, for many, the VELO is almost too light. The drop 5 Solo USSSA swings light but reasonably so. Hitters who like a stiff feel on a single piece bat, need a light swinging drop 5, or are about to size out of their drop 8 Solo should consider the drop 5. If you're swinging a drop 8 Solo in a 32-inch, we think a drop 5 in a 30 or 31 is worth considering too.
