I would say the best bbcor bat on market currently is the Akadema Apocalypse. The Rawlings 5150 has received some good reviews as well.
Yes, -3 bats (which signifies the oz compared to length of bat. ie 33inch 30oz bat is -3) These bats must now adhere to the bbcor rules on bat performance. Best bbcor bats on market are the Akadema Apocalypse, Rawlings 5150 and Easton Stealth.
if you diddnt make the bat youslef it aint a good bat fromer mlb player eric lambrodi
I would have to say it is a tie between the easton stealth composite and the rawlings 5150!
No it is not bbcor certified. If it says bbcor on a -3 bat it is legal
Yes, on the bat there is a small white rectangle that reads "BBCOR Certified .50" or something like that.
Bat-Ball Coefficient Rating.
Not yet. They'll be out in May, 2010. Try this as it came from the office of NCAA's Mr. Ty Halpin. He was very responsive and informative in his reply to me. Mr. Halpin is the guy who MAKES the rules. Beware of other dudes on the internets who interpret rules or sell bats. Read the official rules (and BBCOR approved bat list in the link below, under "Bat Listings").
It means that the ball must come off of the bat under a certain speed.
Yes it is a very good bat. It is the same bat as the Stealth Speed but is just BBCOR certified.
It all depends on if the bat is bbcor certified compared to open rules on bat qualifications. bbcor bats are made with strict rules not allowing it to be technologically engineered to out perform wood bats. Although, metal is generally stronger than wood the new bbcor bats have decreased hr productions dramatically in college and hs baseball.

No. BBCOR is a certification for a baseball bat to be used on the 90-foot base field. I don't even know what BPF is.
No, BBCOR bats are required for high school baseball. BBCOR stands for "Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution."
Most bbcor bats are pretty much standardized, however, my school and others in our conference are going with the Akadema Apocalypse.
A Rawlings bat Pappi uses a Nokona Bloodline as well
Miami Hurricanes are using Nike BBCOR bats.
An approved bat is a bat that has been tested and is approved by ASA. ASA stands for the Amateur Softball Association. Bats that are approved will have a stamp towards the cap of the bat that looks like home plate and it will have a year in it.
Possibly one of the best BBCOR bats available as of right now
The 2012 Exo Grid (BBCOR) is the only legal college exo bat.
No. A BBCOR bat is made out of a "dead" metal substance. The composition of these bats makes them work more like wood bats, but not exactly like them. Any given metal bat will hit farther than wood bats. This is why you see people trying to break distance hitting records with metal bats as opposed to the wood.
It is basically an original aluminim/metal bat that has no composite pieces in it or half composite pieces. Now for little leauge, babe ruth, and highschool BBcor bats must be used, although in AAU which is more competitve and considered travel baseball you can use composite bats
If its summer league it doesn't matter but if its high school all I know is that you need a bbcor certified -3 bat
-5 bat is legal for Central Valley Middle School's , I'm not sure if it has to be BBCOR or BESR.
It is the legal bat in high school and college that uses an alluminum barrel to progress players towards wooden bats for the future
