Overall Ratings

The overall rating uses seven different weighted metrics to determine our overall score. Half of total rating comes from the player and our exit speed tests (Player Rating: 25%, Performance: 25%).The other categories are Relevance (20%), Demand (10%), Durability (10%), Resell Score (5%), and Tech Specs (5%).

(UR) Un Rated: An overall rating of UR means the bat has yet to be fully rated. When it is, this score will update.

(PlaRa) Player Rating: We measure player rating from user reviews. Those users include our own hitters that we test at the lab as well as reviews we find online.

(ExVe) Performance: Performance measures the exit speeds and distances we capture in our hitting lab with HitTrax using these bats.

(Relv) Relevance: We measure the number of sizes and the MOI of the bat. Bats with a wider range of options get a better score.

(Dmnd) Demand: Demand is measured by consumer sentiment and the buzz around the bat.

(Drb) Durability: A bat’s durability is measured by user reviews as well as feedback from manufacturers.

(ReSl) Resell Score: Based on the price the bats go for used. Higher prices mean greater user demand which means, generally, a better bat. A resell value closer to its original price means a higher score.

(Tech) Tech Specs: We rate the bat on its technological advancements from previous years and compared to the industry at large. This is our chance to reward companies who are trying to innovate.
MOI
MOI or Mass Moment of Inertia is a measurement of bat swing weight. This quantifies how difficult it is to swing a bat. The industry often refers to this as things like End Load or Balanced but those words have been overused to the point of meaninglessness. We measure the actual swing weights of each bat we test using the industry-standard pendulum period, balance point, and scale weight. You can read more about that here.
Price
The price is the original MSRP price of the bat.
Type
The types of bats are single-piece alloy (SPA), two-piece composite (TPC), single-piece composite (SPC), hybrid (Hyb.), and wood (Wood). Hybrid bats are made of composite handles and alloy barrles.
Date
The estimated date the bat began distribution.

Wood BBCOR Bats

There are more wood bat brands than most people have ever heard of. We try and keep track of several of them here. We have also hit with the vast majority of these and put our wood bat ratings and recommendations on the individual reviews. See our

Commonly Asked Best BBCOR Questions​

Now that you have narrowed down the best choices for your 2017 BBCOR bat, you may have some questions. There are several we have fielded and think this might be a good place to answer some of the most commonly asked questions about BBCOR Bats.

What is a BBCOR Bat?

BBCOR bats are drop 3 bats used in regulation play for collegiate and high school baseball players. The rules enforcing BBCOR standards have been in place from around 2012. Previous to this standard BESR bats ruled the day but, today, those are illegal in most leagues.

Are BBCOR Bats Legal in 2020?

Yes, since 2014 BBCOR bats have been the standard for high school and collegiate play. There is not even a rumor that BBCOR bats standards will change anytime soon. New USA Bat standards will not affect BBCOR players.

Can BBCOR bats be legally rolled or shaved?

Most agree that rolling a BBCOR bat is illegal. Everyone agrees that shaving a BBCOR bat is illegal. We discuss the concepts of shaving and rolling bats here. In short, we never recommend it for a host of reasons. Not the least of which is the bat’s durability and it is flat cheating.

Can BBCOR bats be used in little league?

It depends on the league within Little League. Major division and below requires USA Bats. Intermediate (50\/70) and Junior League Baseball divisions can use either BBCOR or USA. Senior League Baseball must use the BBCOR standard. Some other leagues for youth players that are requiring USA bats are also allowing BBCOR bats. But, you’ll need to check with the local league to see their policy.

Can BBCOR bats be used in USSSA?

Some 13U and 14U USSSA leagues may allow BBCOR bats. But, you’ll need to check with that specific league. Although BBCOR bats have less pop than USSSA baseball bats the younger leagues are still required to swing a USSSA and not a BBCOR bat. We are not sure why anyone would want to do this anyways.

Do BBCOR bats need to be broken in?

If the bats have a composite barrel then they need to be broken in. If they have an aluminum barrel then they do not need to be broken in.

Do BBCOR bats lose pop?

Yes. Both composite and aluminum barreled BBCOR bats lose their pop over time. There is some argument as to when this begins. Some aluminum bats can hold their pop for years and years and thousands of hits. Some composite barrelled BBCOR bats appear to keep getting hotter and hotter over the years. But, in terms of pure physics, aluminum begins to break down with micro dents and composite BBCOR bats are designed to never cross a certain line of performance without breaking.

Do BBCOR bats have less pop?

In the long run, we all go dead. BBCOR bats too. Good ones can last several years and several thousand hits. Sometimes micro dents on aluminum barrels can affect performance in a noticeable way. It would be unlikely for this occur with a performance BBCOR aluminum barrelled bat within the first few thousand hits. Composite BBCOR bats tend to crack and break when they officially lose their pop.

Are BBCOR bats composite or aluminum?

Some BBCOR bats are made of composite parts while others are aluminum. There are three types of composite BBCOR Bats, roughly: Some have a handle that is composite and the barrel aluminum (these are called hybrids). Others are made of a two pieces that are both composite. (These are called two piece composites) A few are made of a single piece of composite. (These are called single piece composites.

Do BBCOR bats have less pop?

BBCOR bats have less pop than softball bats and USSSA baseball bats. But, they have the same amount of pop as a USA Bat. BBCOR bats are designed to perform like wood bats but, as we note many times on this site, the length of the sweet spot and barrel size can be dramatically enhanced with a composite bat even if the peak performance is equal to wood.

Are BBCOR bats legal for pony league?

Yes. Colt 16U and Palomino 18U Pony League players are required to use BBCOR Bats. Other PONY leagues can use BBCOR bats as well as the new USA Bat standard.

Are BBCOR bats legal for high school?

Yes. BBCOR bats are legal and required for high school (NFHS). No other bats are allowed in high school play. Single piece wood bats are considered BBCOR bats.

Are BBCOR bats legal for Babe Ruth?

It depends on the Babe Ruth League. 13U and 15U Babe Ruth leagues can use either Babe Ruth or USA Bats. Under 13U leagues cannot use BBCOR and must use the new USA Bat.

Are BBCOR bats better than wood?

Generally, yes. They might not have a maximum trampoline greater than wood, but the controlled swing weight and larger barrel size make them preferable to wood bats. In other words, wood bats are more difficult to hit well than a good BBCOR bat.

Are all BBCOR bats drop 3?

Yes. All BBCOR bats are drop 3. It is a requirement of the BBCOR test that they weigh no less than 3 ounces less than the bat is long (measured in inches).

Leagues differ, but most start around the age of 13 or 14 and run through college baseball. Although, some college divisions don’t allow BBCOR bats, only wood.

Are all wood bats BBCOR?

What BBCOR bat has the biggest sweet spot?

Barrel size and sweet spot size are not one and the same. But, they are likely correlated. We measured the barrel sizes of most BBCOR bats.

How long do BBCOR bats last?

It really depends on the type of bat. Some break early. Those are usually composites. Some last a generation (or so it seems). As a general rule, expect to get at least a really good season out of your BBCOR bat. Likely two or even three. Which BBCOR bat is the most balanced? We measured the swing weight for every BBCOR bat.

Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution

What is the Difference Between 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 BBCOR Bats?

The short answer is not much. If anything, the 2017 market has seen a surge of single piece hybrid bats. They give the stiff feel of an aluminum bat but lower the swing weight by using an extended composite end cap. Both the 617 Solo and Axe Hyperwhip, that made the best BBCOR 2017 list above, are single piece hybrid bats. And, both bats, are also new for 2017.

What BBCOR bat has the most pop?

Almost every BBCOR bat on the market meets the .50 BBCOR standard somewhere along the barrel. But, better bats tend to have a longer sweet spot along the length of the barrel and others, still, meet the standard at different pitch speeds. As a general rule, more expensive bats tend to do better at mulitple pitch speeds and longer across the length of the barrel. If we accept that rule, then bats like the 917 Prime, CF Zen, Rawlings Quatro and Easton Beast have the best pop. But these are, at best, debatable claims.

What are BBCOR bats made out of?

There are two types of material BBCOR bats are produced from. Composite is a type of plastic that performance bats often use. Aluminum alloy is a type of metal some other bats implement. Some bats use a combination of Composite and Aluminum and are referred to as Hybrid bats.
