February 2024: Our top 2024 fastpitch bat picks remain the 2022 Easton Ghost Advanced, DeMarini Prism, and Slugger LXT. Expect updates to our list in February and March as we release and test new 2024 models. Availability and pricing may prompt some changes. The list is unchanged since January.
Despite its known durability issues, the 2022 Easton Ghost Advanced continues to lead as the best 2024 fastpitch bat. Its popularity and high performance make it a top choice for players willing to compromise on longevity. Consider the DeMarini Prism or Louisville Slugger’s LXT for those seeking more durability and flex. Power hitters should opt for Slugger’s RXT (2021) or the Easton Ghost Advanced in a drop 8. For drop 9, the 2023 CF is a great pick.
For the best fastpitch bats of 2024, we’ve taken sales and discount data and significant player feedback for the 2024 season. We are the parents of two high school fastpitch players. Most 2024 fastpitch bats will hit the fields and shelves throughout early February, and we expect to have considerable changes in our list come February and March.
