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.

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 DeMarini Voodoo Balanced is a single-piece bat built with a moderately sized barrel and a light swing weight. Hitters who want a stiff feel and as much bat speed as they can muster should like this guy. It's similar to bats like the Rawlings VELO, Slugger Solo and Easton Fuze. The bat hasn't changed much over the years. It is a no-frills bat built to hit baseballs in a durable and dependable way.

The 2018 Demarini Voodoo one is a balanced single-piece bat with a 2 3/4 reasonably sized barrel. It swings about as heavy as other drop 10 USSSA bats, does hurt your hands on mishits, but also has a stiff feel for those who really square one up. The bat has not changed much over the years and serves that entry-level performance bat space. Compared to older and newer versions of this model, the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo One is as good as any.

2018 was the first year of USA bats and this is DeMarini's first run on the single-piece Voodoo One. It's a very small barrel profile on a single piece alloy bat. This bat didn't get fantastic ratings as few players liked the small sweet spot and wring on the mishits. However, those looking for an entry-level USA bat at a great price with a good company might find a lot of success with the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo One USA Drop 10 bat.
