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.

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.

The Solo in USA drop 10 for 2022 is a legit bat with a good-sized barrel that has been a fan favorite since USA's inception in 2018. The bat is light, has a less unreasonable price point, and comes in a huge swath of sizes to fit just about player. Performance-wise it does really well and clearly meets the USA standard. We don't think anyone will be writing home to grandma about the SOLO in USA for 2022 (it hasn't changed from 2021), but we do think you'll get a quality bat for reasonable price that will last and work well.
