Crowd Source: Bat Size Chart

We hit the 2019 Mizuno Carbon 1 over 300 times with 3 different hitters. (This was the drop 10, not the drop 13).

The bat felt stiff at impact, which is how they designed it, had a good barrel, and had a swing weight right in the middle of the Jump to the full review.

Comparable Bats

A single piece composite bat in the fastpitch space? Uh, almost never heard of it. Most companies stick to the two piece design. In terms of swing weight and stiffness at impact we think Louisville Slugger’s XENO is a reasonable comparison.

2019 Power Carbon

Compare the Power Carbon Review

After hitting every fastpitch bat over the last several years it is hard to be blown away by a bat.

2019 PXT

Compare the PXT Review

After hitting with the 2019 Slugger PXT our hitters found it to feel great off a tee. However, smaller hitters struggled during live pitching due to the serious end load on the bat.

2019 LXT

Compare the LXT Review

We hit with the 2019 LXT from Slugger nearly 800 times before writing this review. During that time, we documented exit speeds, barrel sizes and the swing weight of the bat.

Mizuno Carbon 1 vs Mizuno Carbon 2 vs Power Carbon

2019 Mizuno Power Carbon

We are HUGE fans of the Mizuno Power Carbon. It graces the tops of our best fastpitch bats.

The Carbon 1 feels much different than the Carbon 2 or the Power Carbon. It also swings much different than the Carbon 1.

Much of that change in feel at impact is blamed on the two piece design. The Power Carbon and Carbon 2 two piece connections gives them a smoother feel on both hits and mishits. While the Carbon 1 gives some hand ring on mishits. Most younger players prefer a smoother smash. But, those looking for maximum power will be right at home with the Carbon 1.

Also, of note, our measurements of the drop 10 32/22 showed the Power Carbon to swing 5% heavier than the Carbon 1. In other words, if you want want the lighter swinging of the three bats—regardless of feel—then the Carbon 1 is your answer. And, turns out, it will have about $100 as well as the Carbon 1 is markedly cheaper.

Bat Sizing Options

The Carbon 1 comes in a drop 10 and drop 13. Of course the drop 13 will swing exceptionally light.

can you please fix this article, you have completely crossed up the carbon power carbon and carbon one bats

Thanks for the heads up. We had a few things wrong in our algorithm so it was calling the Carbon 1 the Power Carbon. Should be fixed now.
