Best of 2022 BBCOR Bats
1. MARUCCI CAT X
One of the most balanced and forgiving bats on the market, and, if we are being honest, probably the hottest “Cat” bat Marucci has come out with since the Cat5.
2. Rawlings Icon
For a composite bat, this has one of the smoothest and biggest sweet spots in the game. Durable and lightweight, this bat is one of the HOTTEST composite bats you can get your hands on.
3. DEMARINI VODOO ONE
Easily one of the smoothest swinging bats out there, even put up next to some of its competitors. Durability can be an issue on some, but the combo of power and balance is unrivaled.
4. LOUISVILLE SLUGGER ATLAS
With a paint job that is eerily similar to the 2022 Meta, it definitely swings like an upgraded version of the Omaha or Solo. With a large sweet spot and clean feel, it’s a hard bat to pass up.
5. AXE STRATO
A bat that was surely going to be overshadowed by the Avenge Pro Hybrid actually surprised everyone – with a smooth swing weight and packed with power, the Axe handle is just icing on the cake for this guy.
6. DEMARINI THE GOODS
One of the most popular bats behind the Voodoo One, although a little end loaded, still swings fairly smoothly and packs a lot of pop for a 2-piece hybrid bat.
7. STINGER NUKE 2
On the cheaper side, but still extremely hot. This bat tends to be towards the endloaded side of things and definitely swings like it, but still packs a solid punch if you’re comfortable with that swing weight.
8. WARSTIC BONESABER
A definite upgrade from its previous model, the 2023 Bonesaber has a BOAT load more flex and swings like it too. Paint job also looks SWEEEEET.
9. EASTON ENCORE HYBRID
Although towards the end of the top 10, it still has a huge sweet spot and is packed with power. Has a little bit of an endloaded feel to it, but it’s almost unnoticeable with how it feels.
10. MARUCCI CATX CONNECT
While most hybrid bats are meant for the middle of power and contact hitters, not many hold true as they tend to lean to one side or the other. The Cat X Connect is one of the few that holds true to that sentiment. It has one of our highest exit velo’s and feels amazing when barreled. Don’t miss this guy!
