If the recommended bat isn’t in your price range than we recommend you get, either, an older version of the bat or a used version of the bat.

On each of our reviews above you can find a comparison between this year and last year’s bats. In most cases, the bat changes are relatively small.

Older Models

Most of last year’s bats can be purchased at a fraction of the price that new ones can. Most major outlets still sell the old ones. If you want to know how similar the current year is versus the previous year then look at the reviews for each one of our bats—we have an entire section dedicated to the previous year’s bats.

Used Versions

The used market for high end baseball and softball bats is alive and well. More than a few sites have dedicated sections to buying them. If you can’t find a good deal on an older version (you might even go two years back), don’t hesitate to buy a used bat. We have plenty of options here.

The recommended bat is not my size or drop. What now?

Baseball Bat Review Quiz

It will be very common to find a recommended bat does not come in your particular size. Don’t fret, we have solutions.

For starters, you can check the review section of each of the recommended bats. In there we give comparisons to other bats. More often than not, there are VERY similar bats on the market compared to the one recommended to you. Find one of those comparable bats and see if that one comes in the right size.

Further, if other bats don’t come in your specific size, look at the older models of the bat (also in our review section). Quite often an older version was made in a size that isn’t available this year for any number of reasons.

If all else fails, it is possible you’ve found a void in the offering that bat companies offer. Maybe some single piece, popular bat in the USA space that’s a drop 5 in a 30/25 just doesn’t exist. If that is the case, you’ll need to be less picky, sadly. Or, a reasonable option, is to find a wood bat company that can make a bat to your specifications exactly. Smaller boutique bat companies usually do a really good job of this at reasonable prices.
