Top 20 BBCOR Bats of 2021

THE BAT BRO SCALE:

Our rating system for BBCOR baseball bats. Due to BBCOR restrictions, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PERFECT BAT. Between power, sweet spot, and swing weight, every bat is going to have to compromise in at least one category.

Rating Scale:

15-17: "A" - not a fan.

18-19: "AA" - very average; but it will get the job done.

20-21: "AAA" - a pretty solid BBCOR bat; plenty of upside but also a bit to complain about.

22+: "MLB" - excellent bat; bat bro approved

Keep in mind that there are nearly FIFTY 2021/2020 BBCOR bats out there, so anything in the Top 20 would be considered "above-average".

Our Favorite USSSA Bats of 2021

The hottest bats money can buy!! While there are some very hot alloy/aluminum USSSA bats out there this year, a broken-in composite USSSA bat will just about always outperform an alloy/aluminum USSSA bat. The primary benefit of swinging an alloy bat in USSSA is that they are much more durable than their composite counterparts. These composite bats sound/feel/hit a bit better though.

Our Favorite ALLOY Drop-5 USSSA Bats of 2021

While composite USSSA bats are typically going to be hotter than alloy USSSA bats, alloys are going to be much more durable and last much longer than their composite USSSA counterparts.

While we aren't quite yet 100% of which of these 3 bats should be #1, we can at least confidently tell you that if you're looking for an alloy -5, you should be picking up one of these three bats. These ratings are based on our initial exit velo tests.

Our Favorite Wood Bats

In no particular order, here is a slideshow of the best wood bats we've come across so far. We've included which wood type we prefer within each company and which turn models we prefer. Keep in mind that this is only for real/full wood bats and not "wood composite bats" (we'll get to those later in the year).

-These are all very expensive $150+ wood bats (but also keep in mind that some of them have a 1 to 2 month warranty). If you're looking for a solid lower-budget wood bat, we'd highly recommend the Louisville Slugger 5-Series Maple Wood Bats (especially the 243 model) for only $80.

-Most of these bats are pretty endloaded and will be a bit more difficult to swing than your typical metal or composite BBCOR bat. If you're specifically looking for a light-swinging wood bat with a forgiving barrel that's gonna feel a lot more like your composite BBCOR bat, then we'd strongly recommend getting a DeMarini Wood Composite (preferably the orange 110 model). Those swing and feel much more like a BBCOR metal bat.

-And lastly, we obviously haven't tried every single wood bat out there. Nobody has - there are literally thousands. We've probably tried about 100 different wood bats at the moment, and these are just the few that we've consistently had great experiences with.
