Yin and yang. Apples and bananas. Beast X and Ghost X. While these two Easton baseball bats may be on different ends of the spectrum; they are both exceptional in their own way. One is composite while the other is aluminum. One is whole from end cap to knob for a stiff feel, while the other is a two-piece construction that gives off fantastic flex.
When Louisville Slugger introduced the Prime series in 2015, the baseball bats were billed as "the ultimate combination of speed, power, and balance in baseball." The Louisville Slugger Prime 915 boosted a premium composite barrel, stiff handle technology, and a patented three-piece construction. And, sure enough, the Prime 915 was one of the most popular BBCOR bats of 2015.
Now, Louisville Slugger has rolled out the fourth rendition of their Prime series: the 2018 Prime 918. Since the Prime series continues to be one of the highest rated baseball bats, JustBats.com reviews why the Prime 918 is going to make an impact on baseball fields.
Baseball bat technology is constantly changing for the better and Easton continues to stay ahead of the pack. Their commitment to continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and setting the standard when it comes to high-performance equipment is impressive.
As Easton says, "Innovation is the foundation of our success." JustBats believes that's a solid foundation and here is why. Easton is already the number one bat in college baseball, and now they have added a new design to their BBCOR baseball bats: the Z-CORE Load & Load.
"The bat that caused BBCOR Certification."
In 2009, the LSU Tigers baseball team won the NCAA College World Series. The team hit 100 homeruns in 2008 and even more in 2009. In fact, Ryan Schimpf led the team with 22 in '09 and three teammates had 10+ homers. Their baseball bat of choice? The Easton Stealth Comp CNT (BCN8) composite baseball bat.
With the 2017 season in full swing, the JustBats.com team has had a chance to hear your feedback and read your reviews to determine which BBCOR bats are exceeding expectations. Keep in mind, every player has a personal preference and what may be the best baseball bat for you could be the complete opposite of someone else. Because of this, aluminum, composite, and hybrid BBCOR bats all made the list. Which one is your favorite?
Hi, my name is Colin Rudy, and I play in the New England Elite Baseball League for the New England Stampede and also for my Wakefield, Massachusetts Little League senior ball team. In my opinion, I feel that it is a necessity to get a new bat every year because you continue to grow and mature. Plus, your league requirements change.
Due to their popular baseball gloves, Rawlings is unfairly pegged as a baseball glove company. Oh, but the times, they are a changing.
Now, Rawlings is garnering praise for their baseball bats. For 2017, Rawlings has introduced the VELO BBCOR baseball bat (BB7V). With the BBCOR model, the Rawlings VELO features an extreme balance, explosive swing speed, and enhanced pop. And while the 2016 Rawlings VELO (BBRV3) is well regarded, the 2017 version maximizes the ping sound and introduces new features that players have already enjoyed.
The buzz around Louisville Slugger's latest addition to their BBCOR lineup is justified, trust us. The rumors that last season's Select 716 is being replaced are, in fact, true. But only because Louisville Slugger is releasing the Solo 617.
JustBats explains why Louisville Slugger decided on the change and what the Solo 617 will entail.
If you’ve taken a look at the Easton BBCOR baseball bat lineup, whether it be past or present, then you may have noticed a unique feature.
You might have seen a couple of weeks ago when University of Miami's Edgar Michalangeli started a bench-clearing brawl against Boston College after flipping his bat. The bat that ignited the grand slam and subsequent brawl? The heavily anticipated 2017 Adidas Aero Burner, of course.
