2021 DeMarini CF USA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

DeMarini's 2021 CF Drop 10 in USA is a light swinging two-piece composite bat built with the USSSA versions in mind. It swings light and doesn't appear to have the same durability issues as the USSSA versions. The flex feel is the exact same in this USA version as it is in its other lines. However, the barrel is much shorter and the more restrictive standard is immediately noticable. The USA CF is a fine bat, but it is far from a must swing like the USSSA versions. There are no changes between the 2021 and 2020 USA CF bats.

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.

2021 Louisville Slugger Omaha USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

We aren't sure why the drop 10 for 2021 is now a 2 5/8 while the previous year's versions have been a 2 3/4. The bat hasn't changed in terms of its alloy and handle or end cap in the USSSA space. But, for whatever reason, it is now a 2 5/8 barrel. They dropped the drop 5 from the lineup (which was a 2 5/8). The bat still has plenty of sizes available so that's good, but they also bailed on vendor distribution (you can't find this anywhere but on Slugger's site) so it might be hard for some to find it. They also raised the price by $20 from last year. If you have not guessed yet, our suggestion would be to avoid the 2021 and buy a 2020 model. It's less expensive and has a bigger barrel.

The Stinger Nuke is a single-piece alloy BBCOR bat with an extreme end load. We measured the 32-inch and it swings 50% heavier than the 33-inch BBCOR bats. That's not a bad thing, it's just a thing. The bat works well for elite hitters that can swing hard. Improving to Good hitters will likely find it too much of an end-load for their liking.

2021 Axe Avenge Pro USSSA Drop 8

We like the drop 8 version better than the drop 10 as we think that extra weight gives you as much power as USSSA allows. Those who can swing a drop 8, or those 31/32 drop 10 players looking at an Axe Avenge Pro should consider the drop 8 in a 30 or 31. We think the Axe Avenge Pro is the best Axe Avenge USSSA bat to date and worth the upgrade. We wish they had this bat in a drop 5 and added a 33/25 for USSSA, but maybe next year---when covid hasn't ruined all our lives.

The 2021 Easton Maxum Ultra is a single-piece composite BBCOR bat. We measured the swing weight and found it to swing heavier than last year's model (as Easton claims) but still under the average of its length class. That is, the 33-inch 2021 Easton Maxum Ultra swings light, but not ultra light. This consistently performs high on our exit speed tests, feels great, and, although a single piece, has some give in the composite to help with feel. It is one of our favorite BBCOR bats for 2021.

The 2021 Louisville Slugger META in BBCOR is a near-perfect bat. The only thing it lacks, we think, is a smaller 30-inch size. Otherwise, the balance, barrel size, feel and performance are all on point. The 2021 Slugger META in BBCOR is for big hitters who like as much stiffness as possible in their BBCOR bat won't appreciate the Meta. Those who need bat speed, want a huge barrel, and want a great blend of giving and power in the connection piece will like the 2021 Meta. This bat swings about 10% lighter than the 2021 META PWR.

The 5150 in a drop 5 for 2021 has a decent sized barrel and a good balance for the drop 5 class. We like this USA version of the bat better than any other. Kids who can get a drop 5 around and like the stiff feel of a single piece aluminum bat will do really well. As well, at under $100, we think the drop 5 5150 for 2021 is a great practice and cold-weather bat. It can also serve as an ultra-durable cage work bat that will last a life time and give good strength training opportunities for younger hitters.

The 5150 in a drop 5 for 2021 has a decent sized barrel and a good balance for the drop 5 class. We like this USA version of the bat better than any other. Kids who can get a drop 5 around and like the stiff feel of a single piece aluminum bat will do really well.

2021 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR

We like the 2021 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR more than any 5150 in recent memory. The barrel profile and heavier swing weight, when compared to the VELO (but still average compared to the industry), are just like we like our single-piece aluminum bats. It's an all hitters bat---not too heavy for the kids who need bat speed but like the stiff feel, but just big enough for a strong hitter to size up an inch and start baking dingers. The only hitter who it doesn't fit are those who like a more flexible feel and the smaller player needing as much bat speed as possible.
