The ability to change the game with one swing is the corner stone for every elite power hitter. If you are looking to add a little more pop and performance to your power game, then you have to make sure you are using the right BBCOR for your style of play. In this article, we will break down the best BBCOR Baseball Bats for power hitters looking for that extra edge in their next game or tournament. With so many 2022 BBCOR bat options out there it can be hard for a power hitter to find the right weapon to compliment their swing and play style. These power oriented BBCOR bat options should turn your warning track power into light tower power. Let’s take an in-depth look into the best BBCOR bat options for power hitters this season.
When choosing the perfect BBCOR bat built for power, keep in mind preference is going to reign supreme over all else. It is important to remember that the ideal BBCOR for you is one that feels comfortable when you swing, and secondly, a bat that is designed to highlight your strengths when you step into the box. Most of these power oriented BBCOR options are end loaded, which means the balance point of the bat is closer to the middle of the sweet spot and end cap. Power hitters who are strong enough to maintain a high swing velocity with an end loaded bat can generate more force and power on a baseball through swing torque. This article should point you in the right direction for choosing the ideal power BBCOR bat, but we still highly recommend you take each one for a test drive in one of our Hittrax Hitting stations in our store if you are still unsure of which bat will be bast for your swing.
