Brace Barrel – Optimized BBCOR Design The BBCOR standard requires detuning of the bat barrel to create more wood-like performance. One way to do this is to reinforce the entire barrel with added material. Unfortunately, adding material also increases swing weight. So, the design challenge is to use the least amount of material in the most efficient manner possible.
Easton’s exclusive Brace Barrel Technology answers the challenge with authority. Our patent pending design technology strategically locates discs of material in the exact location needed to meet the BBCOR requirements without unnecessarily increasing swing weight. With Brace Barrel Technology, less is truly more.
