2018 Louisville Slugger BBCOR Bats – Prime 918, Select 718, Solo 618, Omaha 518

Louisville Slugger’s all-new 2018 BBCOR bat lineup has launched! The top dog, year in and year out, is the Prime – which continues to set the multi-piece, all-composite market in consistency and performance. Aside from all-composite, LS has two hybrid options, as they bring back the Select (after a year on the bench), while also have the Solo for its 2nd campaign. The 100% alloy bat market is always led by the Omaha, a tried-and-true aluminum bat that brings maximum ping with every swing. Lastly, there’s the Vapor, a price-point bat that gives you incredible bang for your buck. Check out each bat below . . .

The Prime 918 BBCOR Bat is made with Louisville Slugger’s Proprietary MicroForm Composite, which features a Patented Fused Carbon Structure for maximum pop right out of the wrapper. The TRU3 barrel-to-handle connection, which connects the barrel to one side and the handle to the other without allowing them to touch, is going to reduce vibration and provide unmatched feel at ball impact. The all-new RTX End Cap allows for a longer barrel shape, ultimately increasing the potency of the sweet spot for futher hitting distances.

The Select 718 BBCOR Bat is crafted as a hybrid, combining the ST 7U1+ Aluminum Alloy Barrel and the Composite Handle. Hybrid bats are viewed as the best of both worlds, as you get the ping of an aluminum barrel, but the flex and sting elimination that comes with a composite handle. The TRU3 barrel-to-handle connection, which connects the barrel to one side and the handle to the other without allowing them to touch, is going to reduce vibration and provide unmatched feel at ball impact. The Speed Ballistic Composite (referred to as SBC) is designed to make the end cap combat the heaviness of the barrel, ultimately giving you faster swing speed and improved bat control while going through the hitting zone.

The Solo 618 BBCOR Bat is crafted as a hybrid, combining the SL Hyper Aluminum Alloy Barrel & Handle with the Speed Ballistic Composite End Cap. The Speed Ballistic Composite (referred to as SBC) is designed to make the end cap combat the heaviness of the barrel, ultimately giving you faster swing speed and improved bat control while going through the hitting zone. This year, for the first time, the Solo will have Vibration Dampening Technology incorporated in the handle, which will reduce that negative sting/vibration that is normally felt in the hands on miss hits.

  • SL Hyper Aluminum Alloy Barrel & Handle
  • Speed Ballistic Composite End Cap (SBC)
  • Custom Lizard Skins Bat Grip
  • Vibration Dampening Technology

The Omaha 518 BBCOR Bat is crafted with 100% 7U1+ Aluminum Alloy for that stiff, traditional feel. The Omaha, year in and year out, delivers a huge sweet spot and maximum ping with every swing! This year, for the first time, the Omaha will have Vibration Dampening Technology incorporated in the handle, which will reduce that negative sting/vibration that is normally felt in the hands on miss hits.

The Vapor BBCOR Bat is crafted with 100% 7-Series Aluminum Alloy for a stiff, traditional bat at a cost effective price. The Vapor comes with a 31/32″ Standard Handle, Durable Synthetic Bat Grip, and a -3oz Length to Weight Ratio. At the end of the day, if you need a backup bat or a batting cage bat that’s reliable – this is a great option to consider.

  • 100% 7-Series Aluminum Alloy
  • Durable Synthetic Bat Grip
  • 31/32″ Standard Handle

 
Louisville, this year, gives players looking for the right BBCOR bat a “BBCOR Swing Weight Profile Score”, essentially giving a more accurate look, on paper, at the weight distribution of the Prime 918, Select 718, Solo 618, and the Omaha 518. The Vapor, however, did not get included in this swing weight chart. (SEE IMAGE BELOW)

2018 Louisville Slugger PXT, LXT, Xeno Fastpitch Bats Breakdown – What you need to know!

It’s new fastpitch softball bat season!

For 2018, Louisville Slugger looks to maintain their hold as the best selling fastpitch bat maker. We see minor tweaks on the LXT and Xeno, as well as an entirely new PXT at the never before seen price point of $399.99!

In 2018 the Xeno softball bat remains unchanged except for new graphics and and new ultra light weight X-Cap end cap. On the 2018 Xeno, the “low profile” design is said to give the batter an improved swing speed and better control of the bat at the plate. Xeno bats will be made in all of the same sizes and weights as previous years.

Available in: -8 ounce (extreme power hitters), -9 ounce (power hitters), -10 ounce (best seller), -11 ounce (contact hitters)

MAP Retail Price $299.95


2018 Louisville Slugger LXT

2018 Louisville Slugger LXTMuch like the Xeno, the 2018 LXT softball bat remains essentially the same as 2017. There is a new, updated look for 2018, and gets the new ultra light weight X-Cap low profile end cap to “improve swing speed and lengthen the barrel for a larger sweet spot”. Key features of the LXT that are not new but still worth pointing out are the PBF barrel technology that gives you a hot bat right out of the wrapper. Ultra balanced swing weight. TRU3 technology that helps kill felt vibration. The LXT was becoming a better seller than the Xeno in 2017. We are curious to see how the LXT compares to the new PXT and new, extremely popular 2018 Double Barreled Easton Ghost fastpitch bat at the same $349.95 price.

Available in: -8 ounce (extreme power hitters), -9 ounce (power hitters), -10 ounce (best seller), -11 ounce (contact hitters)

MAP Retail Price $349.95


2018 Louisville Slugger PXT2018 Louisville Slugger PXT

The PXT Softball Bat is now the top dog in the Louisville Slugger fastpitch lineup. The PXT is like an LXT with some added options for elite softball players.

  • New – PWR STAX barrel “evenly distributes the load on impact across the entire barrel” for “ultimate results”
  • “Power balanced” – Which means balanced more for a power hitter. Which means there is a slight mid/end load on the PXT.

Other than that, they PXT is pretty much the same as the LXT in all other regards… X-Cap, TRU 3 technology. We have not had the chance to swing the PXT yet, so we can’t give our expert opinion yet. Another note is the PXT will not come in a minus 11 ounce length to weight ratio, which makes sense as the PXT is not as balanced as the Xeno and LXT.

Available in: -8 ounce (extreme power hitters), -9 ounce (power hitters), -10 ounce (generally the best seller)

2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Fastpitch Softball Bat WTLFPLX17

2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper
The Louisville Slugger LXT is BACK! As always, this 3-piece all-composite stick is a popular option for many fastpitch softball players. The LXT for 2017, called the LXT Hyper, has taken this bat model to a whole new level! The LXT Hyper is made with Louisville Slugger’s new PBF System, short for Performance Barrel Flex, which maximizes the power and increases the sweet spot of the barrel. This system gives you more lethal hitting surface on the LXT barrel, while also increasing your hitting distances for more dominance at the plate than ever before! Like previous models, this LXT Hyper is made with the TRU3 Technology, which is the barrel-to-handle connection piece that gives you explosive power transfer and limited sting/vibration felt in the hands. Lastly, this LXT Hyper is made with a balanced weighting, so you have increased swing speed and improved bat control through the hitting zone.
The LXT Hyper comes in four different models, all which differentiate in their respective length to weight ratio

2017 Easton Mako Beast vs. 2017 Louisville Slugger Prime 917: What’s the Difference?

What’s the difference between the 2017 Easton Mako Beast and the 2017 Louisville Slugger Prime 917?

Bat Battle - Easton Mako Beast vs. Louisville Slugger Prime 917

Bat Battle – Easton Mako Beast vs. Louisville Slugger Prime 917

Well, they both have models ranging from BBCOR for High School/College, to Senior/Youth Big Barrels in both 2 5/8″ and 2 3/4″ barrel diameters, and Youth 2 1/4″ models for little league/dixie/babe ruth as well. But, what is different about them? Well, it’s the composite type, the barrel length, and the barrel-to-handle connection piece.

Let’s start with the composite. Easton uses Thermo Composite Technology (TCT) on the Mako Beast, which is Easton’s top composite material. Louisville Slugger uses MicroForm Composite on the Prime 917, which is an upgrade over the Pure 360 Composite they used in years past. TCT and MicroForm are very similar and comparable, while also being very durable. They each have good pop out of wrapper, but the break-in period is key for the sweet spot to reach its full potential.

Next is the barrel size. The Mako Beast’s barrel length is definitely longer, as Easton made it their goal to create more potent hitting surface and longer barrel lengths on the 2017 line of Mako Beasts. However, even with such a big barrel, the Mako Beast is still pretty balanced, so you’re not going to have an end-heavy bat that slows down your swing speed. The Prime 917 doesn’t have the extended barrel length of the Mako Beast, but the weight distribution with the Prime gives the bat an incredible “feel”, with the sweet spot just as potent as any other bat in the composite game.

Lastly, the barrel-to-handle connection piece. Above mentioned was the incredible “feel” of the Prime 917, but part of that is due to the TRU3 Technology, which connects the Prime 917’s barrel to one side and the handle to the other, without allowing them to touch, which increases flex and also eliminates sting/vibration as much, if not more, than any other bat. This construction gives the Prime 917 a “feel” that no other bat can compare to. However, the Mako Beast is better if you want multi-piece composite, but don’t want so much flex, since Easton’s CXN piece is just a simple barrel-to-handle connection with no separate piece in between. It still kills a good amount of sting/vibration, and has a great feel of its own.

Which is better? That just comes down to personal preference, as they’re both top notch. You really cannot go wrong. Below is each model, or group of models, allowing you to find what you’re looking for.

USA Bat Standard – Youth BBCOR Bats are coming!

USABat Standard

USA Bat Standard Baseball Bats

First College, next was High School, now at the Pony and Little League levels we will see a Youth BBCOR Bat!

Starting in 2018, to be legal for play in Little League, Pony, Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth, AABC, AAU, Dixie baseball, your bat will need the USABat stamp on it.

USABat Standard baseball bats will go on sale in the Fall of 2017. Major brands like Easton, DeMarini, Louisville Slugger, and Rawlings are already hard at work on these new youth baseball bats with the USABat stamp.

USSSA vs USA Bat Standard

Key USABat Standard Baseball Bat Facts

  • Approved YBBCOR 2 5/8” barrels will be legal for all ages (14 and under) in Little League, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, PONY, Dixie, AABC, AAU.
  • The 2 5/8” big barrel lengths will be much shorter than the current 2 5/8” 1.15bpf barrels used in today’s game due to the performance regulations put in place.
  • All current youth baseball bats will continue to be legal in the above mentioned organizations through December 31st, 2017
  • 1.15bpf bats will NOT be grandfathered in for the 2018 season.
  • The goal is to make youth bats perform like a wood bat.
  • There will be no limit to how light a bat can be, which should be helpful to younger players.
  • According to USA Baseball, the governing body that oversaw the research and ratification of the new USABat standard, this change is being made for “integrity of the game”, and not “safety” reasons, as it claims “Youth baseball continues to be one of the safest of all sports”.
  • USSSA, which governs nearly all travel ball teams, is not affected by the change to the USABat Standard, and currently has no plans to change their bats

Long story short, everyone who plays Little League, Pony, and the other organizations mentioned above will need to buy a new bat starting in 2018. These bats will perform like wood bats. Baseballs will likely not be hit as far with these bats, BUT the larger diameter barrel on the baseball bats can and will make the baseball easier to hit for many players.

2016 Louisville Slugger LXT Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat Review

The LXT is back, all-new and improved from last year, and with a new name… the LXT PLUS!

Louisville Slugger constructs the 2016 LXT Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat with 100% Composite material and a TRU3 Design, which is a 3-piece bat construction that gives you explosive power transfer and trampoline effect at the moment of impact. Also, the TRU3 barrel-to-handle connection doesn’t allow the barrel and the handle to touch, ultimately disallowing that energy from seeping to your hands that would normally cause vibration/sting. This allows you to swing fast and hard, without limitation. The LXT Plus is also made with a Balanced Swing Weight, so you have great bat control and fast swing speed while going through the hitting zone. The new Performance Plus Composite material gives the LXT Plus great durability with a zero friction wall design, so the barrel on this bat is going to play soft and strong day in and day out. The S1iD Technology also gives you the lightest feel possible with maximum pop, all while staying within legal rules and regulations.

Better barrel performance than ever before
