2022 Louisville Slugger Solo USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

The Drop 10 Solo is our highest-rated USSSA SOLO bat mainly due to its versatility. The bat comes in a huge range of sizes (26 through 31) and with a light swing weight and has a fit for basically any 7 through 11-year-old. The bat also performs admirably. Granted, most serious players like the feel of more expensive two-piece composites and, as such, tend to swing harder and with a bit more consistency. But, the right hitter---especially that entry-level comp and travel player looking for as much bat speed as possible that also doesn't want to break the bank.

2022 DeMarini Zoa USSSA Drop 5
Find Similar Bats

The 2022 DeMarini ZOA in USSSA Drop 5 is a two-piece composite bat with a big barrel and loaded swing. Compared to other drop 5s, it is a bit stiffer in the connection joint which gives more feedback on the hands. The two-piece composite barrel sounds great and competes with the CF, its sister bat, for space. If you want a top-of-the-line USSSA bat in a drop 5 that is not named the CF, then the ZOA could be your best bet. (That assumes, of course, that you want to pay $50 more dollars too).

2022 DeMarini The Goods USSSA Drop 5
Find Similar Bats

The drop 5 The Goods in USSSA for DeMarini is a big-hitting bat built exactly like the amazingly popular BBCOR The Goods. However, with a bit of a lighter swing weight but the USSSA tramp on the barrel, the thing is a rocket maker. Thsoe looking close at CF in a drop 5 but want a little more stiffness in the connection piece, more like BBCOR bats, should really like this 2022 DeMarini The Goods in BBCOR. Note: the drop 10 version of this bat is much different in end cap, barrel make up and connection piece. They should probably be considered two different bat lines they are so different. But, alas, they are not.

2022 Warstic Gunner BBCOR

The 2022 Gunner is a new bat from Warstic and should be compared to the 2021 version because its that much different. The bat swings lighter than the original (but still on the power side of things), has a great connection piece and A+ look. We are big fans of this well-priced bat and think it should be on anyone's short list who is in the market for a bat like The Goods, Nox or Select PWR.

The 2022 DeMarini The Goods in a USA Drop 10 is a balanced bat with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. The bat isn't our favorite but what USA bat actually is? The barrel size is decent for a USA Bat and the swing weight is a decent fit for most hitters. As well, those looking for a hybrid bat in the USA space to compete with a bat-like Slugger's Select have a worthy choice in the 2022 DeMarini The Goods USA Drop 10.

The drop 10 USA The Goods One from Demarin isn't anything to get too excited about. However, it will fit a large number of hitters and meet the maximum standard on well hit balls. The barrel profile isn't big, and the stiffness can hurt the hands on mishit balls. But, the price is more reasonable and the serious rec player could find a lot of success with this light swinging single piece alloy from DeMarini's 2022 lineup.
