Easton USA Bat Breakdown

It’s that time again! The top brands in baseball are beginning to roll out new bats for the 2022 season and we’re here to help guide you through the hottest new releases. 

Easton has made waves for decades by producing baseball bats with pop. Past bat lineups like the Stealth, Mako, and Ghost are still raved about in dugouts across the country, and we’ve made it our mission to find the best bats for baseball players in 2022. We’re going to analyze Easton’s new USA bat lineup and take a closer look at each model to determine the right style of hitter to swing each of their latest bats. 

USA Bat Regulations

Before you begin to shop for a new USA baseball bat, we recommend a quick refresher on the rules and regulations each USA bat must adhere to.

  • Maximum barrel diameter of 2 ⅝”
  • Regulated, wood-like batted ball performance (similar to BBCOR)
  • Must display a USA Stamp of Approval
  • Required for AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Dizzy Dean, Pony, and Little League

2022 Easton USA Bats

There’s a reason that Easton continues to be one of the world’s top manufacturers of baseball bats. They have a knack for developing bats that players love to use because they produce results on every swing. We understand that shopping for a USA bat with pop can be tricky given the governed performance a USA bat is allowed to possess but this is why Easton has made a concerted effort to maximize the performance of each of their 2022 USA bats. Let’s look at a few of the hottest 2022 USA models and how their features will suit each type of hitter.

2022 Easton ADV 360 USA Baseball Bat 

Available in Drop-11, Drop-10, Drop-8, & Drop-5

Back for another year, the Easton ADV 360 will be Easton’s premier composite USA bat. It offers hitters a balanced swing weight, vibration-dissipating technology, and a Power Boost Knob to improve player leverage on contact. This bat will provide hitters with a massive sweet spot due to the Launch Composite Materials used to create the barrel. Easton has also made adjustments to help fortify the barrel walls to provide better durability throughout the season. We anticipate the ADV 360 being one of the most popular USA bats in 2022.

Notable Features:

  • Two-Piece, Composite Baseball Bat
  • Balanced Swing
  • iSo 2-Piece Connection
  • Speed End Cap - Better Whip
  • Flow-Tack Grip

Recommended Hitter - Any power or contact hitter looking for a large barreled USA bat that they can comfortably control through the zone.

Bat Assurance

2022 Easton MAXUM Ultra USA Baseball Bat

Available in Drop-12 & Drop-10

The MAXUM Ultra is back and ready to do damage. Easton’s one-piece, composite USA bat leads innovation by offering hitters a balanced swing alongside a powerfully stiff feel on contact. Other 2022 USA baseball bats will be released throughout the fall but Easton has claimed that this bat features the largest barrel among one-piece bats on the market. Look for the MAXUM Ultra to build confidence in hitters learning to square up the baseball consistently. Like all composite bats, we would recommend that you get a couple rounds of batting practice on the barrel before breaking it out in a game. This will allow the carbon fibers to break in so that your player can break out!

Notable Features:

  • One-Piece, Composite Baseball Bat
  • Balanced Swing
  • XXL Barrel Design
  • Seamless Carbon Construction

Recommended Hitter - Younger players (only available in drop-12 and drop-10) looking for a balanced USA baseball bat to drive the baseball into the gaps. 

2022 Easton Alpha ALX -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB22AL11)

The Easton Alpha ALX is expected to be one of the top, one-piece alloy bats in baseball. Given the construction, the Alpha ALX will arrive hot out of the wrapper and require no break-in period. The ultra-lite barrel design and drop-11 length to weight ratio make the Alpha ALX one of the lightest swinging USA bats in 2022. Look for the aluminum alloy barrel to ring loud on contact, forcing opposing players and coaches to take notice each time you step up to the plate. One notable downside with a one-piece alloy bat is that players will likely feel negative vibrations when they mishit the baseball. A pair of batting gloves or a new Lizard Skins bat grip can help to alleviate this issue.

Notable Features:

  • One-Piece, Alloy Baseball Bat
  • Balanced Swing
  • Durable R5 Aluminum Materials
  • Flow-Tack Grip

Recommended Hitter - Younger hitters between 7 - 10 years of age needing a USA baseball bat with pop and durability. 

2022 Easton Speed Comp -13 USA Baseball Bat (YBB22SPC13)

The Easton Speed Comp is the lightest USA baseball bat on the market. Sporting an ultra-light drop-13 weight, the Speed Comp is built for players needing additional help getting the bat through the zone. Players looking for a lightweight USA bat to use in coach pitch, machine pitch, or the early seasons of kid pitch will undoubtedly want to check out Easton’s Speed Comp. The composite materials used to create the bat help dissipate vibrations while getting hotter throughout the season. This is a confidence booster for the batter’s box.

Notable Features:

  • One-Piece, Composite Baseball Bat
  • Balanced Swing
  • Carbon Zero Handle
  • Cushioned Flex Grip
  • USA’s Fastest Swinging Bat

Recommended Hitter - Hitters between the ages of 5 - 8-years-old needing a USA bat to improve their swing speed and build more confidence.

2022 Easton Speed -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB22SPD10)

Grab one of the best value USA bats for your young slugger. The 2022 Easton Speed has a robust one-piece alloy design and is slated to be a top USA bat for under $100. As the name suggests, this bat is going to be all about generating faster swing speeds. A concave end cap minimizes the weight at the end of the barrel to allow players to whip the barrel through the zone. Couple that with the proven ALX50 alloy, and it’s easy to see why so many anticipate the Easton Speed being an effortless blend of performance and durability.

Notable Features:

  • One-Piece, Alloy Baseball Bat
  • Balanced Swing 
  • Cushioned Flex Grip
  • Durable ALX50 Alloy

Recommended Hitter - Any 8 to 12-year-old hitter that wants an easy-swinging aluminum USA bat to drive the ball to all parts of the field.

2022 Easton Typhoon -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat (YSB22TY12)

Unleash the power of a typhoon during your 2022 baseball season. Built from strong aluminum alloy, the Easton Typhoon has a traditional one-piece build. The drop-12 design makes it one of the best USA bats for coach pitch baseball. The balanced swing will instill confidence in younger hitters but anticipate the vibrations your player will experience on poorly struck baseballs. The Easton Typhoon will be sold for less than $100, making it a good option  for anyone needing a USA bat for machine pitch baseball.

Notable Features:

  • One-Piece, Alloy Baseball Bat
  • Balanced Swing
  • ALX100 Alloy
  • Cushioned Flex Grip

Recommended Hitter - Younger players in machine and coach pitch baseball looking for a balanced, aluminum USA bat that won’t break the bank.
