The 2018 Rawlings Quatro USA bat is legendary in its performance and (lack of) durability. The bat is a two-piece composite bat with a huge barrel light swing and, what was at the time, a legendary performance. It came in a good range of sizes and was a real win for anyone who happened upon it.

2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid USA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid is a two-piece bat with a composite handle and aluminum barrel. The bat has an end load that makes it feel like a drop 8, but for the first year of USA bats the range of swing weights was expected to be big---and this definitely falls on the heavier side of things.

2018 Rawlings Quatro BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The 2018 Rawlings Quatro (aka the #glowstick) is legendary for its crazy great performance at lower-end swing speeds. It is also known that it has a penchant for not lasting too long---especially if you are a bigger and strong hitter. The bat is a big barreled two-piece composite with a light swing, great pop, and huge barrel. If it didn't break as easily as it does, then it would be one of our favorite all-time BBCOR bats.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X is a two-piece composite bat with a huge barrel and a good feel on contact. It's a light swinging bat made for those in the 2 3/4 space that want the most plate coverage per swing weight possible.
