2021 Easton ADV 360 USA Drop 11
Find Similar Bats

Although a bit on the heavier side for a drop 11, it swings right in line with other drop 10 bats in the USA space. So, if you consider this drop 11 as a drop 10, it is, as far as we measured, one of the very best bats in the industry. The Easton ADV 360 Drop 11 USA bat is a huge barrel, balanced swing, and knockout performance. It reminds us a lot of the Orange Easton MAKO as any USA bat to date ever has.

2021 Axe Elite One BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The 2021 Axe Elite One in BBCOR is a heavy swinging single piece aluminum built for the big hitter who wants an ax-shaped handle and all the barrel they can handle. This bat is built for big hitters that like a stiff feel and prefer or are fine with the Axe Handle. It is the same as the 2020 Axe Elite One BBCOR but, on their site at least, Axe changed the year to 2021. But, it is the same bat and has the same model number, color scheme and everthing. COVID ruined everything.

It appears this is Axe's way of selling their new 2021 Bat for a discount directly on their website or directly on their Amazon outlet. Supply is likely limited, so who knows how it will last. For what it is, a heavy swinging single piece aluminum bat, it is a top-shelf bat.

The 2021 Junior Big Barrel USSSA Drop 10 Axe Elite One is a single-piece alloy bat built with the ax handle and balanced swing weight. This bat is made for pitching machine type players between the ages of 6 and 8. It comes in only short sizes of 26 and 27-inches. The bat is NOT a world-beater by any means---but no JBB bats are. This is a straight forward bat with a unique handle that will likely make getting your hands to the ball a more natural motion. As such, for young kids just starting out we think the Axe JBB Elite One is as good as they get.

The drop 8 for the B2 Ultra is a big barreled bat with a huge barrel and a great swing. Although we don't know much yet, we expect the bat to be a lot like the B2s from days gone by in the Combat space. JustBats, some years ago, picked up some rights to the Combat name when Combat went out of business (via bankruptcy). Easton, a sister company, took over much of the Combat umbrella. But JustBats picked up enough to secure some naming rights in the future. As well, and we don't know, Easton's acquisition by Rawlings may have left some Combat items on the table too. We'll keep asking around.
