Boasting an ever-smooth two-piece, fully composite construction, the 2020 Easton ADV 360 will challenge as the most comfortable bat in the game. Starting at the top of the bat, a Speed Cap will provide more flex for an even smoother swing. As we move to the barrel, it is worth noting that the 2020 ADV 360 BBCOR models will have a Power Balanced swing weight (note: the USSSA and USA versions of this bat will offer a standard, balanced swing weight.) The Power Balance will load the barrel slightly to provide more power for each hitter.
The composite fibers on the barrel will serve to negate vibrations on contact, while the DFS Caron Handle creates an extra stiff feel on contact to improve batted ball performance. Each 2020 ADV 360 will come standard with a manufacturer-applied Lizard Skin bat grip for insane comfort. Lastly, Easton has switched things up with their bat knob construction. Starting in 2020, select models will have “Soft Knobs.” These knobs protect against potential hand injuries, and allow players to leverage the bat for an increase in power potential!
Given that this is the second year of Easton releasing an ADV model, we do have a comparative bat to use as a barometer for the 2020 Easton ADV 360’s success. New features such as the 360 Engineering will look to improve upon the already-glowing reviews of the 2019 Easton Project 3 ADV model. Look for Easton’s newest, high-end composite bat to continue providing power and comfort for every player that chooses to step into the box with it.
Who Should Swing the 2020 Easton ADV 360?
Traditionally speaking, smaller players tend to gravitate towards multi-piece composite baseball bats. There are a few reasons, such as the flex, the comfort, and the balanced nature of composite bats that drive this general line of thinking. However, the 2020 Easton ADV 360 looks to buck this trend. The aforementioned DFS Carbon Handle coupled with the slightly end-loaded swing weight make this a very alluring option for both contact and power hitters, alike.
