2017 Baseball Bat Reviews

Adidas Aero Burner Baseball Bat Review

Click for a Newer Version of this Bat.

August 3, 2020 | by Bat Digest Review Team | @BatDigest

Like the Adidas RBZ bat Adidas released to the public last year the Aero Burner is using a TaylorMade club line name (which is also owned by Adidas) to brand the bat—lessons from the tee-box to the batter’s box, if you will. While that tidbit of information doesn’t quite amount to a full on “Adidas Aero Burner Baseball Bat Review”, it does get us on the right track, at least, and as new information arises. We will update this page as we get our hands on the bat as well as get reports from players using it.

Quick Review

We’ve also confirmed the intent is for the Adidas Aero Burner bat to be released in the “summertime” of 2016.

(You can see the Adidas RBZ X3 & EQT X1 reviews here).

The Adidas Aero Burner baseball bat, as far as we can tell from some Getty Images and listening to the bat’s contact during Hurricane games, is that the bat is a single-piece aluminum alloy in the BBCOR space. It performs well enough that Miami Hurricane players are willing to use it consistently.

What we also notice is other major collegiate teams, which are the flagship programs of other brands, do NOT have their new 2017 bats in hand (or at least in-game) just yet. DeMarini, Slugger, and Easton appear a bit behind the curve when it comes to Adidas—or clearly have a different strategy then the Adidas brand who is pushing hard to make serious waves in the aluminum and composite bat space. Rawlings, we should note, has let at least some players use their new Quarto BBCOR bat which should be coming out in the fall..

BBCOR Aero Burner Recommendations
2016 Adidas Aero Burner Review

We suspect this Aero Burner bat will replace the 2015 Adidas EQT X1 which served as the single piece and slightly heavier swinging bat made in the wheel house for collegiate players and advanced high school players. This is a guess on our part. Those players who can appreciate direct feedback on the hands in payment of better feeling drives and more power transfer to the ball might find it interesting enough. But we’ll need to wait and see.

The Adidas EQT X1 bat wasn’t produced in a senior league, big barrel or youth space and we have no news if Adidas plans on getting into that market with the Aero Burner. But with BPF 1.15 standards changing to the USABats standard in January of 2018, we think it very unlikely Adidas will produce a bat for younger players which will be legal for only a year.

You can see the bat in action when Miami is up to bat in this video.

The Adidas EQT X1 wasn’t particularly well-received, at least among non-collegiate players with school obligatory contracts. This isn’t to say the X1 wasn’t a good bat, as we discuss in our review, but the uptake in a seriously saturated market dominated by Easton, DeMarini, Slugger, and Rawlings will take more than a single piece aluminum bat to break through the rank and file of American baseball branding.

We got a chance to take the new 2016 Adidas RBZ EQT X3—which Adidas made in conjunction with TaylorMade—into the cage and can happily report the bat feels fantastic. It’s a noticeably light swing with really smooth feel through contact and the grip and handle size feel right. Well hit balls have real sense of standing in the tee box watching a little white ball zoom away from you.

As a bit of history, you may recall, for the 2015 season, Adidas showed us a single piece alloy BBCOR bat (EQT X1) and a Hybrid (Composite handle, Alloy Barrel) in the EQT X2. This year, at the NCAA Collge World Series, Adidas revealed they were making a new bat called the EQT X3 RBZ (Adidas Site). The RBZ stands for Rocketballz and is a trademark of TaylorMade, an Adidas golf company. The RBZ EQT X3 was produced with the help of the TaylorMade golf brand known for long drives and high end equipment.
