Looking at all of the baseball bats that are available on the market today, it can be overwhelming when trying to determine which one to use in a game or practice. With the numerous materials, stamps, weights, designs, etc. players and parents are left at a crossroads when selecting a bat to use at the plate. So where does the player or parent start? How does someone determine which bat is best? Hopefully we can clear up some of these questions when it comes to the different options each player has.
Where to Start…
The best place to start is with league regulations. More >
Over the past few years, there has been much talking and, well, complaining about the latest NCAA and NFHS bat certification deemed “Bat-Ball Coefficient of Restitution”, better known simply as “BBCOR”.

The DeMarini CF7 baseball bat, with Paradox +Plus composite and D-Fusion FT handle, is DeMarini’s top-of-the-line for 2015; perfect for the serious player looking for an evenly balanced, light-swinging bat More >
The Mako Torq – available for baseball and fastpitch – is the first of its kind, with a rotating handle to allow for free movement of the wrists through the swing. What does this mean? Simply put, the swing is shorter and quicker to the ball, allowing the player to square up more pitches; and longer through the ball, allowing full extension to get as much pop at contact as possible. This innovative technology, combined with Easton’s top-of-the line More >

For every manufacturer, there are two basic designs for bats- single piece or two-piece. A single piece bat being made of one single material from the handle to the barrel, and two-piece bat having two separate pieces connected or fused together. These options have been the running standard for both composite and composite/alloy bats for years……UNTIL NOW…
Introducing, Tru3 technology by Louisville Slugger — THE NEWEST 3-PIECE BAT DESIGN! Yep, not one.. Not two.. But THREE pieces!
360 composite – this composite is thinner, which allows for more layers resulting in a stiffer handle. The stiffer the handle, the more solid the contact when it More >

When the 2014 VooDoo Paradox was designed, they upgraded the barrel to their X10 Alloy and handle to their Paradox composite. This combination created their top-of-the line, More >
