We at Better Baseball want to help you pick the perfect drop 5 bat that will give you the best chance for success in the upcoming season. In order to help you with your decision process, we will break down the best drop 5 bats for 2021 based on performance and popularity. The list below is the best performing drop 5 baseball bat within each bat category. For example, best drop 5 one piece, two piece hybrid, and two piece composite.


Marucci Cat 9 wins best drop 5 baseball bat for one piece alloys


The best one piece alloy drop 5 baseball bat is the Marucci Cat 9. The Cat 9 is an upgraded and improved version of the Cat 8 drop 5. The most important new feature on the Marucci CAT 9 drop 5 is the all new AZR alloy. The AZR alloy is constructed using a three stage thermal treatment process. The three stage process impacts the performance of the bat because it creates three different alloy thicknesses as you move across the barrel. The multi variable wall design creates an expanded sweet spot because the thinner walls are more forgiving after off-centered contact. With any one piece alloy bat, you want the thinnest walls possible to create the strongest trampoline effect after contact without sacrificing durability. The new multi-layer wall design gives the benefits of a high performance sweet spot, while maintaining the strength and durability of the barrel. Both power hitters and contact oriented hitters can really take advantage with an alloy bat like the Marucci Cat 9. If you are looking for a one piece alloy drop 5 baseball bat then we highly recommend the Cat 9 above any other one piece alloy for 2021.



Marucci Cat 9 Connect wins best drop 5 bat for two piece hybrids

If you are a power hitter and prefer a hybrid two piece bat, then that Marucci Cat 9 Connect drop 5 should be your weapon of choice. Marucci's 2 piece hybrid, the CAT 9 Connect, is specifically designed for power hitters who are looking for an end-loaded feel without sacrificing control and overall performance. Boasting a massive sweet spot outfitted with Marucci’s new AZR alloy technology, this USSSA drop 5 bat reigns supreme and is our top choice for hybrid bats in the drop 5 USSSA bat category.
