Bbcor Bats Buyer’s Guide
There’s a lot of technical terms being thrown around in these reviews, so it may benefit you to brush up on some of the features to look for when purchasing the BBCOR bat for your needs. Here’s a quick breakdown of some terms you’ll often see and how they relate to your BBCOR bat experience.
Composition: BBCOR bats can be made from Composite, Aluminum, or Hybrid materials. Composite bats are light, provide increased swing speed, have reduced vibration, and tend to have a larger sweet spot than alloy bats. However, they have less durability, require to be broken-in, and more costly than alloy bats. Alloy bats are robust, require no break-in time, and are generally better value, but they have a smaller sweet spot, are heavier than composite bats, and have less pop. Hybrid bats have a composite handle and an aluminum alloy barrel. Their composite handle gives the bat an improved smooth feel while still achieving the strength and high end performance of an alloy barrel.
Vibration: The impact with the baseball causes the bat to vibrate, which produces an unpleasant, stinging sensation in the top hand of the player holding the bat. To minimize its effect, several bats manufacturers have developed vibration absorbers, typically located in the taper or handle regions of the bat.
Sweet Spot: Generally speaking, the sweet spot is the region where the batted-ball speed is the highest and which produces the least vibrations in the batter’s hands. Its exact location varies from one bat to another.
