In recent years, softball bat technology has advanced rapidly, creating some of the most evolved and explosive hitting the sport has ever seen.

Here's a breakdown of some of the hottest softball bats in the game today.

Ghost Advanced

The Ghost Advanced made its debut on January 16 and began selling like crazy shortly after due to the popularity of the earlier models of the Ghost bat known for insane pop. This bat has double barrel technology, which has been pioneered in recent years by Easton, with a lighter inner barrel. Along with this, Easton has created what it calls “launch composite technology,” which allows hitters a greater sweet spot and less vibration throughout the bat.

Louisville Slugger Xeno 2020

The Louisville Slugger Xeno 2020 is a two-piece bat with S1ID barrel technology. Louisville Slugger promises that this bat is hot right out of the wrapper, and is perfect for both power hitters and slappers. This bat is balanced and has an ultra-lightweight X-Cap for added control and bat speed through the zone.

DeMarini Prism 2020

The DeMarini Prism 2020 uses gap barrel technology in order to allow a low compression outer wall and an even lower compression inner wall in order to launch the ball. DeMarini’s Continuous Fiber Composite design creates a big sweet spot, while the 3Fusion system keeps the ball from stinging your hands. Its D-LAB innovation allows any hitter to perform well, no matter what the condition.

Louisville Slugger LXT 2020

The Louisville Slugger LXT 2020 is another bat that promises to be hot out of the wrapper. Its balanced composition allows for maximum bat speed through the zone. The LXT is the best Louisville bat that reduces hand vibrations, which allows for solid contact through the ball. This bat features a three-piece design that is centered around the Vibration Control Connection System, which causes separate movement from the barrel and handle.

Easton Ghost 2020

Like the Easton Ghost Advanced, the Easton Ghost 2020 was also created with the double barrel design. Due to the outer and inner barrel design, compared to last year's Ghost model, this model has much lower compression, which in turn creates better impact and contact. This bat also features Easton’s Connection+ Technology, which creates less vibration on your hands for a better finish.
