2021 DeMarini The Goods One Piece Review

Overall The Goods One Piece Line Review

In both USSSA and BBCOR, our hitters liked the bat’s design, its stiffness, and the ball flight when they drilled one on the screws. In BBCOR, it swings on the light side of balanced but even folks who liked balanced+ type swing wights were fine with how it felt. It was light, but not unusably light. The 33-inch, which we measured, is 3% below the average BBCOR swing weight in that length.

Most high school hitters prefer composite or hybrid bats that better feel on mishits. For USSSA, we liked the drop 8 better than the drop 10—that added weight did a to reduce hand sting.

2021 DeMarini The Goods One Piece Model Tips

Hitters who like a stiff one-piece alloy bat preferred The Goods One Piece. Usually, hitters who prefer those types of bats are stronger, elite type hitters that don’t have as much trouble squaring up the ball as they do getting enough power behind it. Those types also want heavier swinging bats which The Goods One Piece is not. This bat accents smaller hitters that like stiff feeling bats with focused barrels.

2021 DeMarini The Goods One Piece Review

The BBCOR The Goods One Piece is built for a big hitter who likes lots of stiffness in their bat. As well, the alloy is hot out of the wrapper, so there's no need to wait or wonder if your bat has yet to be worked in. It will be no better than the first time you hit it. Those looking for a balanced swing, single-piece alloy bat with a great look, flared knob, and ping sound will like the 2021 The Goods One Piece. Since there are virtually no changes from the 2020 version of the bat aside from the paint job, a 2020 will do you just as good if you're looking to save a couple of bucks.

2021 DeMarini The Goods One Piece Review

New for 2021, DeMarini has a USSSA The Goods One Piece. This bat replaces the Voodoo One from years past. The bat uses a new graphics scheme and a new end cap and the addition of the drop 8. We liked the drop 8 over the drop 10 but wouldn't buy the heavier bat if you can't swing it. When hit well, the ball looked great off the bat. The bat has a loud ping, looks, and feels a lot like the Voodoo One from 2020 and, we think, will really shine for that single-piece drop 8 hitters in the USSSA space. It is also a balanced swinging bat.
