Our hitters liked the big barrel, and length afforded by the drop 12 of the USA bat as well as the sound of the new 2020 Rawlings Quatro PRO BBCOR Bat. The USSSA bat also got good marks.

Quick Review

Our hitters liked the big barrel, and length afforded by the drop 12 of the USA bat as well as the sound of the new 2020 Rawlings Quatro PRO BBCOR Bat. The USSSA bat also got good marks. The Lizard Skin Grip, looks and barrel size were helpful too. One of our main hitters is a HUGE Quatro BBCOR fan and thought the 2020 Quator PRO felt just like the 2019 Quatro. It should as it is, pretty much, the same bat.

Recommendations

The barrel is massive on the USA versions of the bat. The drop 12 gives is a remarkably light swing and, by our measurements, it is the largest barrel per swing weight on the market. It reminds us of the old Combat barrels. The massive sizing options in each league (USSSA, USA and BBCOR) give plenty of serious hitters a chance to find their right Quatro Pro.

Those who need more length due to weight restrictions should really like the drop 10 type feel this drop 12 bat has.

BBCOR Quatro Pro Recommendations
2020 Rawlings Quatro Pro Review

In terms of swing weight, barrel size and hot out of the wrapper performance, the 2020 Rawlings Quatro PRO BBCOR bat is fantastic. The bat has blazing fast exit speeds—among the best in the industry. We think it does a great job on lower swing speed type hitters or younger guys trying to get as much bounce as possible. Those who swing bigger bats, like a 34-inch, might prefer something a little more stiff. But, if you’re a smaller hitter looking for as much gumption as possible at the plate then we suggest a 33 or 32-inch BBCOR Rawlings Quatro Pro.

USA Quatro Pro Recommendations
2020 Rawlings Quatro Pro Review

If you are looking for the premier bat in the drop 12 USA space then the Rawlings Quatro Pro should be right in your wheel house. Expect a real smooth smash even on bad hits as well as a huge barrel and ultra light swing weight. It is, save an Easton ADV 360 coming out later this year, the only drop 12 bat in the USA space.

If it is a drop 10 or drop 8 bat you need then the Quatro Pro for 2020 has some options too. Don’t expect amazing performance from this or any USA bat. Our general sense has been that aluminum bats are a much more reasonable purchase this early in the USA bat game. To date, no company has really shown the composite world of USA bats to be a solid bet. If you want/need a composite barrel in USA then the Quatro Pro in an drop 10 or drop 8 should be as good as any.

USSSA Quatro Pro Recommendations
2020 Rawlings Quatro Pro Review

The 2019 Rawlings Quatro Pro struggled with durability problems. It does, like the DeMarini CF, break more often than others—or so the internet vibes would tell us. But, unlike the CF, it never really got the reputation as a ball killer. Instead, it was a decent bat that broke often enough to avoid. As such, it got less than good ratings across the internet in the USSSA space. For 2020 it does not appear anything changes in the barrel. However, there are some upgrades to the end cap which can, in fact, improve barrel durability. Time will tell if the 2020 has better durability ratings than the 2019. In any event, we suggest you buy it from legit vendors that can offer a real receipt for a warranty.

2020 vs 2019 Quatro Pro

In terms of a drop 12 USA Quatro Pro the 2020 version stands alone. 2019 didn't product a drop 12 USA Quatro. But, the drop 10 and drop 8 models come Lizard Skin stock grip and all the upgrades found in the 2019 version of the bat. It comes with multiple discs in the barrel to expand the barrel to be absolutely massive. The USA version of the Quatro pro has been available since April of 2019. In USSSA the Quatro Pro useas a new end cap as well as the new stock Lizard Skin grip. BBCOR versions have the same changes as the USSSA version. The 2020 Quatro comes with the 2019 barrel which was upgraded from the 2019 version.   If the upgrades in the USA version hold over to the USSSA version you should expect a much bigger barrel and the Lizard Skin grip. The larger barrel is created by the use of multiple smaller discs in the barrel versus the one longer one they used in the 2019 and 2019 versions. Discs in barrels is not a new thing and something many fastpitch bats have been doing for years. We are hopeful, considering its our favorite, they keep the BBCOR bat much the same.

Comparable Bats

In terms of a drop 12 two piece composite you won’t find another bat in the USA space. There are not any. However, there are some drop 12’s but those are single piece bats. Look for something like the Rawlings Threat or Easton Hyperlite.

In the BBCOR, USSSA and USA non drop 12 space you can find a lot of similar bats. We like the CF Zen series from DeMarini and the Ghost Evolution series from Easton. Of course Slugger’s 2020 Prime and Meta series play well too.

2020 Prime

Compare the Prime Review

Our 2020 Louisville Slugger Prime review consists of years of data collection for the Slugger Prime bats. The 2020 edition will be the 6th edition of the Prime. As expected, the 2020 version is a two piece composite bat built with a balanced swing weight, big barrel and comes in a number of sizes in the BBCOR, USA and USSSA space. There are virtually no changes in the construction of the bat from the 2019 versions.

2020 CF

Compare the CF Review

The 2020 DeMarini CF review comes on the heels of hours of testing and swinging the bat in BBCOR, USSSA and USA versions. Most has stayed the same when compared to the 2019 CF Zen. The exception to this is an upgraded endcap to help with durability. Otherwise, the 2020 DeMarini CF is the same high performing bat that most players love and many players love to hate. Expect the USSSA version to rule the dance again with the BBCOR and USA versions competing for the top spot of serious baseball players.

2020 Meta

Compare the Meta Review

The most popular and highly rated BBCOR bat for 2019 is back in the 2020 Louisivlle Slugger Meta Prime. We took to the cage, spoke to some folks at Slugger and write this 2020 Meta Prime Review. Expect a release date between late July and Early September 2019. It is ONLY set to be released in BBCOR. USSSA and USA hitters will need to wait for a Slugger Meta in their league.
