2015 starts another year of baseball, which means another ridiculous lineup of bats from Louisville Slugger. The 3 top flight BBCOR bats for this year are the Omaha 515, Select 715 and the baddest one of them all, the prime 915!
Each of these were made to do one thing: DOMINATE THE COMPETITION. Let’s go through each bat in detail so you know exactly what you’re getting before you take the one for you to the field. Here is the Louisville Slugger’s 2015 BBCOR Baseball Bat Lineup.
Louisville Slugger’s 2015 BBCOR Baseball Bat – Omaha 515
The BBCOR edition of the Omaha is a 1-piece bat constructed with ST+20 Alloy, which is arguably the best aluminum alloy in the game. Louisville Slugger crafted this 515 with the Flex Band Barrel Technology, a process where a 1″-wide graphite band is inserted inside the bat, increasing the strength and power of the sweet spot without sacrificing the light swing weight! Capped off with a 2 ⅝” barrel diameter and a 31/32” tapered handle, the Omaha 515 gives you the best bang for your buck! Great Performance + Great Price = One Heck of a Deal
2015 Select 715 BBCOR Baseball Bat
Louisville Slugger makes the BBCOR Select a 3-piece, which takes this bat to an entirely different level of performance. The TRU3 Technology is how all 3 of the pieces come together, as it connects the barrel to one side and the handle to the other, while not allowing them to touch. That gives you the benefit of having no vibration getting to the hands and the energy that wants to come down to the handle essentially gets redirected right back into the barrel.
The redirected energy will then create a trampoline effect, ultimately increasing the distance of your hit! Also incorporated is the Flex Band Barrel Technology, where the 715 has a 1″-wide graphite band inserted inside the barrel, which increases the strength and power of the sweet spot without sacrificing the light swing weight! Lastly, Louisville adds a 2 ⅝” barrel diameter and a 31/32” tapered handle to the Select 715, making this one of the best BBCOR bats on the market!
2015 Prime 915 BBCOR Baseball Bat
As Louisville Slugger’s only 100% composite BBCOR bat, the Prime is the top dog of the 2015 lineup! Composite is the strongest, most durable material in the game without question, giving you a great advantage while stepping up to the plate. Just like the Select, the Prime is made as a 3-piece, connected using the TRU3 Technology.
This technology connects the barrel to one side and the handle to the other, while not allowing them to touch. This benefits you by eliminating vibration to the hands, while redirecting contact energy right back into the barrel for a trampoline effect that will increase the distance and power of your hits! Another great feature is the Flex Band Barrel Technology, where the 915 has a 1″-wide graphite band inserted inside the bat, which increases the strength and power of the sweet spot without sacrificing the light swing weight! The Prime 915 for BBCOR also comes with a 2 ⅝” barrel diameter and a 31/32” tapered handle, making this Louisville bred Prime the #1 BBCOR bat available!
