2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO

by Anthony - Oct 06, 2013

Pros: Really nice pop and the grip is very comfortable in your hands and also has a very good balance to it. Not to mention that the graphics and colors go very well together, its a great looking bat. I gave it all 5-stars because when I got to swing it at the Rawlings tech center I liked it a lot and it performed very well. I recommend this bat for sure.

Cons: Hurts when you hit it off the end and that's about all

Review Summary

2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO
4.888889 based on 9 ratings. 9 user reviews.

New for 2014! Introducing the TRIO, a three-piece hybrid, blending a Comp Lite Endcap, 5150 Alloy, and a composite handle for ultra low MOI and increased barrel flex. Rawlings is out to prove that they truly are on the cutting edge of BBCOR design technology. The original 5150 Alloy BBCOR was one of the first BBCOR bats to hit the market, yet it achieved uncommon staying power and popularity for years after its release. That's because players barely noticed a difference in performance, swing weight, and durability from their BESR bat. Now that Rawlings has had a chance to perfect the design even further, this year's TRIO is sure to be even more popular! The unique feel offered by Rawlings' BBCOR bats is made possible through Precision Optimized Performance (pOp) Barrel Technology that isolates extra weight to a smaller region of the bat, translating into extra swing speed. Made from the ultra-responsive 5150 Alloy, this three-piece design also features Rawlings' proprietary Bi/fusion process that joins the Comp-Lite end cap to the 5150 Alloy frame to give it more durability and more pop in one single, solitary unit. With a 7/8 Inch tapered handle and premium synthetic grip, the TRIO will feel incredible in your hands. Rawlings: The New Standard of Speed! The TRIO is BBCOR Certified and legal for high school and collegiate play. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO

by Mr. Incredible - Mar 26, 2014

Pros: First, you need to know what type of bat you prefer to swing, Rawlings bats are always balanced very well and are therefore better for contact hitters because you can get your hands through the zone faster, This bat is no exception, I swing the 34 in this model and typically swing a 33 in everything else and i can get my hands through just as fast with this bat. The extra ounce definitely helps with power too. Great pop, very comfortable feel with a LARGE barrel.

Cons: Only had it a couple days, haven't found anything yet.

2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO

by Jonathan Pryor - Dec 16, 2013

Pros: I am a freshmen on the Wake Forest baseball team and I used to 33 inch Raid this fall. I liked the bat mainly because it had more pop than any other bbcor bat that I used. The only negative was when it was used a lot the top would start to fall off. But the ball really carried and had a big sweet spot to it. I would it hit off the end and would still carry.

Cons: None

Pros: Good pop with a comfy grip. Pretty big sweet spot but if it's not on the sweet spot it's dead and could break

Cons: Can crack easier than other bats

2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO

by Ryan - Oct 17, 2013

Pros: I swung this at a 2014 bat demo that featured all the Easton, Louisville Slugger, and Demarini bats. This bat was by far the best. The ball really jumped off the bat more than any others, and it felt great to swing. Awesome bat.

Cons: None at all.

I'm 15, 5'7", and weigh 130 lbs. Should I get the Easton MAKO or the Rawlings Trio?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR (BBTRIO) would be a great choice for a hitter at your size. The Easton MAKO will provide a longer more extended barrel length. Both will be very balanced also. Either would be a very appropriate choice.

87892

What size bat should I be using? I am 5'9" and I weigh 140 lbs?

We would suggest you use a 32" in the 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR (BBTRIO).

87366

Would you recommend: the TRIO or the Paradox? I am a 5' 6", 130 lbs, a freshman, and a contact hitter. (Price doesn't matter.)

Unless you like using end loaded bats, the 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR (BBTRIO) Adult bat is much more balanced and is generally the kind of design contact hitters use best. The Voodoo "Paradox" has a slight end load that isn't always the best option for a player who is looking for higher swing speed and control.

86256

Does the Trio BBCOR or the Velo BBCOR have a larger sweetspot and a faster swing speed?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR (BBTRIO Adult) bat will most likely have the larger sweet spot because of the higher priced materials used in the design. The VELO will feel very balanced for a one-piece fully alloy design.

85829

Will the Trio provide a larger barrel and sweet spot than the VELO?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR (BBTRIO) and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR (BBV3) will have a similar sweet spot and barrel.

85593

Would the 32" inch TRIO be good for a 5'5" and 120 lbs. contact hitter? Is it very balanced?

While the 2014 Rawlings TRIO (BBTRIO) is very well balanced, I think a 32" bat might be slightly too large for a player of that size. I would suggest going with either a 30" or 31" bat at this point in time. The Rawlings 5150 (BB513) would be a great choice if you're looking to stick with the same brand.

85173

I live in Colorado, and my season starts during the 2nd week of March. It's about 40-70 degrees most of the time. Will the TRIO be alright to use in these temperatures?

We do not recommend using any bat under 55 degrees, and the 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR is no exception. However, we understand that sometimes this is unavoidable due to your location. The TRIO is an awesome bat, with a nice, balanced swing and large sweet spot. Durability will always be a concern when using bats in colder weather. The TRIO does come with a full 12 month warranty to cover any dents or cracks that occur during this time frame.

85091

I had a line that went all the way around the bat right in between the bbcor stamp And the -3 sign. It looks like a crack and you can feel it all the ay around. Its right where the chrome color starts and the black ends? Is it made like that or is it cracked? Has anyone else had this problem?

The Rawlings Trio (BBTRIO) is a three-piece hybrid design. This means that the bat has a Comp Lite end cap, an alloy 5150 barrel, and a composite handle. The "line" that wraps around the barrel of the bat is where the 5150 alloy is welded into the the composite handle. All TRIO's will have the defined line on it since that is where the composite meets the alloy material.

84975

If swing speed was on a scale from 1-10, what would the Trio be rated? What would the Velo be rated?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR (BBTRIO) has a great swing speed. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate both bats a nine.

84931

What are the differences, besides feel, between the TRIO BBCOR and the TRIO End Load BBCOR? Is there a difference in pop or power?

Both versions of the 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR feature the same BBCOR performance certification, so one will only offer more power if you feel more comfortable with that design. If you're a power hitter with higher swing speeds, you might see better results with the (BBTRI3). But most players should use the balanced version (BBTRI) to the best of their abilities.

83785

Looking at new bats for my son he is 5'7" 135 lbs. What size bat does he need?

Based on his height and weight we recommend a 32" 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR (BBTRIO).

81414

Which is better? The Rawlings Trio or Marucci Elite for both contact and power hitters?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult and the 2014 Marucci Elite would both be great for power or contact guys. Both will provide excellent pop and a great feel to the swing weight.

78756

How will this compare to the DeMarini Voodoo?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult will be more balanced and light weight than the DeMarini Voodoo. The Rawlings TRIO End Load will be more similar to the Voodoo because it will have a comparable end loaded feel.

78532

Is it a power hitters bat?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult bat would be great for a power hitter or a contact hitter. It will have a very balanced feel to go along with the three-piece design.

78170

Is this bat as balanced as the VELO?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult has the same composite end cap as the VELO for an equally balanced swing weight.

77883

What is the difference between MAKO and TRIO? TRIO and Velo?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult is a three-piece hybrid design with a composite handle, alloy barrel, and composite end cap. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult is a two-piece fully composite bat. The 2014 Rawlings 5150 Velo BBCOR: BBV3 Adult is a one-piece all alloy bat. The TRIO, MAKO, and Velo have comparable balance. The MAKO uses Thermo Composite for a bigger sweet spot.

77689

I'm stuck between the CF6 and the Rawlings TRIO. Which has a longer barrel and which is better for power, launch, and swing speed?

Both the 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR would be a great selection. Both will have very light swing weights and promote very quick bat speeds. The CF6 will have a D-Fusion Handle that will not allow vibration to reach the hitter's hands and project them back through the barrel for added pop. The TRIO will have increased barrel flex while the CF6 will feel more stiff.

77050

Easton S1 2014 or the Rawlings Trio 2014? I want a balanced feel and want to drive the ball to all parts of the field. Should I get the 2014Easton S? 5'10 and weigh 145.

Both the 2014 Easton S1 and 2014 Rawlings Trio are going to be very comparable in balance. The main difference between these two bats is that the Rawlings Trio is a three-piece hybrid.

75877

Will this bat be better than the Demarini CF6? I have no preference in bats and just want to know which bat is better for a contact hitter.

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult is a three-piece hybrid meaning that it has a composite handle, alloy barrel, and a few inches of composite at the end of the bat to even out the swing weight. The DeMarini CF6 will be a two-piece composite, but will have a stiffer feel because of the D-Fusion handle. The Rawlings Trio will offer more flex often preferred by contact hitters.

75561

How does this bat compare to the Rawlings Machine?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult is a three-piece hybrid design meaning that it has a composite handle, alloy barrel, and a small portion of composite at the end of the barrel. This allows for the bat to be more balanced. The Rawlings Machine is a two-piece bat, with a composite handle and an alloy barrel.

72942

How is the TRIO 3 pieces?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult bat features a composite handle, alloy barrel and composite endcap.

72873

Is the bat balanced or end loaded? When will the BBCOR VELO come out?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult is a three-piece hybrid, blending a Comp Lite Endcap, 5150 Alloy, and a composite handle for ultra low MOI and increased barrel flex. It will be very balanced in swing feel. The 2014 Rawlings VELO BBCOR will be releasing soon.

71165

Is this composite, one piece, or a hybrid?

The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult is a three-piece hybrid bat, blending a Comp Lite Endcap, 5150 Alloy, and a composite handle for ultra low MOI and increased barrel flex.
