2021 Rawlings Quatro Pro BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The 2021 Rawlings Quatro Pro in BBCOR is an ultra-light big barreled bat that sits atop Rawlings' lineup. The bat has changed shape over the years---going from our favorite in 2017/18 to one that doesn't feel as good anymore, at least to us. We think the focus on an ultra-light swing has brought down the value for the average high school baseball player. That said, those looking for the lightest swinging BBCOR bat and also want a huge barrel, decent feel, and a premium price point shoulder really like the 2021 Rawlings Quatro Pro BBCOR.

Louisivlle Sluggers 2021 Select PWR is a two piece hybrid bat built with a composite handle and alloy barrel. This is the same bat as the 2020 PWR but with a colored up version. The bat is made for big hitters that need a heavier swing weight and like the feel of a stiffer two piece bat.

The 2021 Victus NOX is a new addition to the USSSA space whose drop 10 is a balanced swing, easy connection piece and great feel. Players really prefer the two piece hybrid design and although it swings a bit heavier than a bat like the CF, it feels great, kids love it and it hits the ball fall. If you want a more durable option of a bat that isn't called the Marucci CAT 9 Connect, then the drop 10 USSSA Victus Nox is a legit choice.

2021 Victus Nox USSSA Drop 8
Find Similar Bats

Victus Nox was once only a BBCOR bat. Now, it's a USSSA bat too in a drop 10, 8, and 5. The drop 8 version, featured here, is a two-piece hybrid bat with a big barrel, smooth connection on impact, and uses a unique threaded connection to help dampen stings on mishits. The alloy barrel is ready to go out of the wrapper and the drop 8 runs a bit heavier than your traditional composite two-piece bats (like the CF). But, hitters who want a durable two-piece hybrid in a drop 8 and don't want the Marucci CAT 9 Connect (Marucci also owns Victus, FYI), should really like the Drop 8 Nox. We think the Drop 8 is the sweet spot of the USSSA Victus line and would push most in that direction if they can swing it. The wide range of sizes and player feedback make it the best-reviewed Nox of the lineup.

The drop 5 Nox is a two-piece hybrid bat built with the big hitter in mind. Those in the space not willing or wanting to use the famed CF drop 5, and like the idea of an aluminum barrel that is ready to go out of the wrapper and durable too, should really like the Drop 5 Nox. It's a big barrel with a moderately stiff connection, drop 5 average swing weight and if you can square it up will absolutely fly.

The 2021 Widowmaker is a BBCOR bat with an endload. We like the barrel feel and its stiffness. This bat is clearly made for big hitters. Average to smaller hitters will appreciate a different stick. D1 type players who need as much bat as any inch can offer will like the 2021 Anderson Widowmaker.
