Best BBCOR Bats 2024 (May Updates)

If you are looking for 2024 and 2023 BBCOR Bats, our top three are the Slugger Atlas, Rope, and F5. They are followed closely by the CAT X, XP Alloy, and Voodoo One; The Goods, Bonesaber Hybrid, and Clout AI are next. Below, we cover all the best BBCOR bats from years past.

We’ve measured success with BBCOR bats over the last decade and keep this page up to date monthly with our favorite BBCOR bat. We rank the May 2024 best all-hitters BBCOR bat as the Slugger Atlas. But, the *best* BBCOR is more a perception than a fact. We cover many of people’s favorite options below.

Quick Top 3

Updated May 2, 2024

For May 2024, we’ve moved the Slugger Atlas as our top pick. The bat is just too popular to keep anywhere else by #1. It has been on the top of the best-seller charts for months now, and with the more limited availability of the CAT X, we give it our top spot. We swapped it with the CAT X and kept the rest of the list relatively still the same.

What is the Right Bat Size

The best-kept secret in the industry is that the best BBCOR bat is the right size bat. BBCOR standards have leveled the playing field so that barrel performance is eerily similar across every brand, model, and make. Dialing in the right swing weight is the best way to improve your exit velocity. See our Bat Size Chart.

Bat Rumors

We expect to see the 2025 CAT X2 (squared?) in the next few months. As the season goes on and the industry looks to push some fresh inventory, there should also be some fun color up drops.

How We Decide

At Bat Digest, we make it a point to deliver genuine reviews from real players. A significant piece of the baseball bat market is the BBCOR space, and as such, we have used every performance ($150+) BBCOR bat since 2017 for testing in some fashion or another. Most of that work comes between three to four different hitters, but often, we gather feedback from far outside that circle, too.

Qualitative Measures (What We Measure)

Over the years, much of the data we have captured has been qualitative. That is, it responds to the quality of the product in terms of feel, aesthetics, and personal feedback. It serves as a basis for our impressions of the bat. Qualitative data is less objective and more complex when transferring value from one player to another.

Quantitative Measures (What We Feel)

We also use several quantitative measurements to get a feel for the best BBCOR bats. Our exit speed testing, barrel testing, swing weight, and compression testing influence our rankings considerably. We also use aggregated feedback from some rating sites like Amazon and justbats.com to get a feel for what people may or may not be saying about the bat.

Granted, many of those reviews are challenging to verify, and the sellers may scrub them only to portray a positive outlook.

Are Our Rankings Correct?

Our funny way of answering whether we are right is simply saying no. We are probably incorrect, and our recommendations may not suit everyone.

Our defense is that our rankings are the objective effort in finding the 2023 BBCOR bat players we would be the happiest with on average.

Does that mean everyone will appreciate the feel, pop, and balance? Of course not. But our best guess—which we believe is more educated than anyone in the market—is without industry or vendor bias.
