Baseball Bats | DeMarini

2021 DeMarini The Goods

By Bat Digest | Last Updated November 19, 2020

On the shortlist of most anticipated bats for 2021 stand The Goods. This bat had considerable success despite COVID-19 in 2020. It reached a hype level few have achieved. Although the bat was good to a great performer, it still isn't for everyone. In BBCOR, save the paint job, it is the same bat as the 2020 version (plus an updated end cap). DeMarini adds a USSSA drop 5 and 10 to the mix as well. The BBCOR is $50 more ($399), the USSSA is $20 ($279).   Jump to full review.Jump to the full review.

2021 DeMarini The Goods Review

Overall The Goods Line Review

Our hitter’s love the feel of The Goods. Despite its end load, a lot of younger and smaller players think it is the right fit for them. In terms of data, we have yet to see any player hit The Goods with as much success as they percieve. It is, after all, a BBCOR bat limited by a pretty restrictive standard that a lot of companies also reach in their bats. And, frankly, has been reached by the Voodoo line for several years now.

As well, hitters believe the pop and performance of The Goods is above average despite no evidence of that reality. The bat sounds right, feels right and has reached a certain level of groupthink claiming its one of the best of all time. This does not mean the bat is not recommendable.

2021 DeMarini The Goods Model Tips

The BBCOR 2021 The Goods is built for big hitters that want an end-loaded bat and prefer a stiffer feel in their hybrids. That isn’t everyone. As well, if you need a bat that requires no work in, is sure to produce BBCOR exit speeds right a the limit, then the 2021 BBCOR The Goods could be for you.  The USSSA version in drop 10 is the USSSA Voodoo updated, but the drop 5 uses the same stiffer connection as is found on the BBCOR version.

There is not a USA version of The Goods. But, for 2021, there is a USA Voodoo.

 

2021 DeMarini The Goods Review

The 2021 The Goods is built for stronger hitters that prefer end-loaded bats. With respect, we think it's strange to make a 32" bat in an end load--as those who need 32" bats should swing balanced 33" to get the extra inch. If that is you, look closely at a Voodoo Balanced from 2017 through 2020. But, if you're a heavy hitter in the 33 to 34" bat range, The Goods will produce what you want. As well, the 34.5-inch option is new to the mainstream BBCOR bat space. We think several players will be grateful for the added half inch on what they percieve as the right big bat for them.

2021 DeMarini The Goods Review

As of this writing, you can design a custom DeMarini The Goods in USSSA drop 5 or drop 10. The drop 5 has the same stiffer connection as the BBCOR versions of the bat while the drop 10 uses the same connection as the Voodoo from last year. That is also the same connection piece used by DeMarini's CF.
