The 2019 Easton Beast Speed is a single-piece bat with a light swing in a 2 3/4. The bat is built for the hitter who wants as much bat speed as they do barrel coverage and don't want to break the bank. It comes standard with a Lizard Skin grip.

The 2019 Louisivlle Slugger SOLO is a reprint of the 2018 version and there is nothing wrong with that. The bat is a single-piece aluminum stick with an extended composite end cap to help bring down the swing weight. Despite it's classification as a drop 11, the bat swings as heavy as many drop 10's and, if you remember, this 2nd year of the USA bat standard put bats all over the place.

Rawlings 2019 single piece composite with a ultra light swing in a drop 12 is the Threat. The bat gets great ratings on its durability and value buy but does lack the kind of power upper level travel type players wish they had. But, younger ones just getting started that want a reasonable bat will be right at home.

The Axe Elite One drop 8 USA bat is a single-piece alloy with a lighter swing (for its class) and a decent sized barrel. The ax handle is what makes it unique. Those looking for a stiff bat with the ax shaped handle with a moderately weighted drop 8 USA certification could really like this bat. It isn't terribly exciting, but hitters who can square it up will have success.
