Without a doubt, The Goods is one of the most hyped BBCOR bats for the 2021 season. And let's get it out of the way now. Yes, it has lived up to the hype. It's going to shine on high school and collegiate diamonds all across the nation in 2021 and beyond.
Touting a two-piece hybrid design, the X14 alloy barrel combines with the composite handle via the Direct Connection Point that helps reduce sting while still providing a stiff feel on contact. DeMarini has done an unbelievable job with this model. They've combined an end-loaded swing weight with a massive barrel that's perfect for power hitters.
If you're looking for a more balanced swing weight, this may not be the best BBCOR bat for you. But, if you're looking for a heavy bat with a huge sweet spot that's forgiving at the plate, then the 2021 DeMarini The Goods is what you need. Being available in 31"-34", there's a size for most players.
It's back! And this time around it's not banned.
Year after year, Louisville Slugger BBCOR bats always top the charts. This year, the Meta is our go-to THREE-piece, fully composite construction. While it does come with a hefty price tag, this Meta is poised to be even better than the first two versions.
Parent Ron Cohen left a review that said, "Great Louisville Slugger BBCOR Bat. This bat has a nice pop to it.. And minimal vibration.."
New for this year, Slugger has added the GT1 End Cap that helps enhance barrel length while improving swing speed due to its lightweight design.
Hot out of the box? Check. Durable? Check. Beautiful? Absolutely.
The Marucci CAT 9, like all other Marucci CAT bats, is undoubtedly one of the top bats for the 2021 season. While it's labeled as a balanced bat, some players are saying that it's slightly end loaded.
With that said, the Marucci CAT 9 dons a longitudinal groove system (LGS) that's implemented across the thickest section of the barrel wall to remove excess weight for increased bat speed.
A high-end, multi-piece composite construction, the Quatro Pro from Rawlings is comparable (if not better) than the other composite BBCOR bats on the market today. The best part? This model is made in the USA, and it comes with a 30-day performance guarantee. That means if you're not fully satisfied within 30 days of your purchase date, return it directly to us for a full refund with no questions asked.
We've got DeMarini rounding out the top five with their latest rendition of the CF. With sizes ranging from 30 inches all the way up to 34 inches, there truly is a size for every batter. The silver, black, and orange color scheme is sure to stand out, and it'll be hard to keep your teammates away from it.
DeMarini brought back the two-piece, Paraflex composite construction that offers an unbeatable balanced swing weight and top barrel control. A perfect option for well-rounded hitters looking to enhance their bat speed and batting average.
The B5 BBCOR bat was all the rave back in the day, and now it's all the rave in 2021. Easton has brought back this OG one-piece aluminum design to pull on former players' nostalgic heartstrings and make new memories with the latest and greatest hitters.
It truly is one of the most iconic baseball bats in the history of the game. Legends like Bo Jackson and Mark Mcgwire have helped make this the number one bat in College World Series history.
the speed of something in a given direction.
The BBCOR Velo ACP is a fan-favorite because of the insanely fast swing speed. An already balanced BBCOR baseball bat, Rawlings has redesigned the barrel profile and included two inches of carbon composite at the end cap to create the lightest swing weight possible. To improve even further on the previous year's model, Rawlings has created a thinner handle for a better feel when gripping the bat plus more control.
The first-ever hybrid BBCOR baseball bat from our friends at Victus and it's smashing expectations. It's way better than anyone would have thought from a first-edition, under-the-radar BBCOR bat. Be prepared to not feel a thing on contact due to the military-grade aluminum barrel and fully composite handle combined by the two smooth impact connection piece. Even on mishits, batters are able to control the ball and limit vibration with this end-loaded beast of a bat.
Without a doubt, the Easton MAXUM ULTRA has one of the biggest barrels in baseball. Their 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter starts at a higher point, yielding a larger barrel and a more massive sweet spot than its competitors. All the while, it boasts a stiff one-piece, fully composite construction, which is unique in and of itself. Players all over the country will love this re-balanced design that still allows for quick swings and aids power hitters.
With an all-natural wood colorway, the Warstic Bonesaber is the closest thing to a white bat allowed in NCAA and NJCAA play. This unique, one-of-a-kind BBCOR baseball bat is a one-piece aluminum model that gives off a high-pitched ping sound on contact. You'll be able to hear this baby from miles away.
An additional thing to note is the knob. Warstic put a taper out to the end of the bat, which looks like the knob many MLB players use on their wood bats. This is to help deliver top palm comfort and superior bat control. We're really excited to carry this bat for the 2021 season and we're sure you'll be equally as excited with it at the plate.
While we've listed out the top 10 BBCOR bats for 2021, keep in mind that back in 2010 the switch was made from BESR to BBCOR standard to force manufacturers to make baseball bats that were both:
- More wood-like in performance and
- Safer for players
With that being said, the difference in performance between all BBCOR bats should be minimal, and it all comes down to what feels best for each individual hitters and what helps improve their confidence level.
