2019 Mizuno Power Carbon Baseball

Crowd Source: Bat Size Chart

New for 2019 Mizuno has released a huge barrel on a single piece composite bat. We spent a lot of time, with a half dozen other hitters, hitting the 2019 Mizuno Power Carbon to write this review.

On the whole, hitters immediately noticed the size of the barrel. It is, at least in the 33-inch BBCOR realm, the largest barreled BBCOR bat on the market. As well, it runs one of the lightest swinging bats… Jump to the full review.

Quick Review

On the whole, hitters immediately noticed the size of the barrel. It is, at least in the 33-inch BBCOR realm, the largest barreled BBCOR bat on the market. As well, it runs one of the lightest swinging bats on the market. In essence, if you want the largest barrel with the lightest swing then you just found your bat.

BBCOR Power Carbon Recommendations
2019 Mizuno Power Carbon Review

If you are looking for the largest barrel with the one of the lightest swing weight in the BBCOR class then the Mizuno Power Carbon is your best bet. The barrel is a monster, as big as anyone has ever made one. The swing weight is moderately light. There are some lighter bats (by 3 to 4% in swing weight) but they sacrifice a lot of barrel.

USSSA Power Carbon Recommendations
2019 Mizuno Power Carbon Review

An ultra light single piece composite bat has never really caught on. Even the Combat Maxum of days gone by tended to swing a little bit heavier as to give them the girth to drive through mishit balls. The USSSA Power Carbon does a decent job helping to avoid hand sting but, if you go this route, do know that the ultra light swing on a single piece composite isn’t for the faint of heart. That said, the huge barrel and light swing make it feel impressively agile.

Comparable Bats

The single piece composite bat realm for 2019 is thin. The only comparable bat for this given year is Dirty South’s Kamo. That, too, is a single piece composite. But, notably, the Kamo swings heavier than the Power Carbon. Expect an 8 to 9% increase in swing weight from one bat to another. The Power Carbon does have a bigger barrel profile but not by much. Both barrels are monsters.

After discussing with several players that have used the BBCOR Dirty South KAMO and measuring its exit speeds and swing weights, we write this review.

Cage work and a few games with the BBCOR 2018 Combat MAXUM, as well as a couple conversations with major vendors on the bat, put us in a spot to publish a review.

Research: 2019 Mizuno Power Carbon

2019 Mizuno Power Carbon Baseball

2019 Power Carbon Construction

The Mizuno Power Carbon for BBCOR and USSSA (not to be confused with the Power Carbon in fastpitch) is a single piece composite bat. This means Mizuno essentially produces the entire bat in a single process for synthetic material best described to the layman as plastic. Mizuno’s composite is referred to as Black Onyx Carbon. Black Onyx is, for all intents and purposes, a marketing term for their type of composite used in the bat.

Another unique feature on the 2019 Mizuno Power Carbon is the grip. They use a unique design in the grip to produce some better comfort and feel. Our players liked it and commented on it.

Bat Sizing Options

Expect a BBCOR and USSSA (Big Barrel) Version of the 2019 Mizuno Power Carbon. (Also, there is a fastpitch bat for 2019 called the Mizuno Power Carbon. We review that elsewhere.)
