2019 Louisville Slugger BBCOR Bats Lineup

Prime Meta BBCOR (Not pictured) $499 – New, EKO Composite is used in the barrel to increase performance and swing lighter, while still having a massive barrel and sweet spot. A new 3FX Connection System gives a stiff feel and dramatically reduces vibration.

Prime 919 BBCOR $449 – 3 Piece composite design makes the Prime feel light weight and balanced. VCX barrel tech kills vibration. Proven winner.

Select 719 BBCOR $349 – 3 Piece hybrid design. Alloy barrel matched to a composite handle for added power and durabilty. Speed Ballistic Composite end cap helps increase swing speed, while still allowing the bat to have a slight end load for added power. VCX barrel tech (same as Prime 919) helps eliminate vibration.

Solo 619 BBCOR $299 – 1 Piece alloy construction. Light weight. Extremely balanced. The Solo is quickly outpacing the Omaha as the number one best selling Louisville Slugger BBCOR bat. Easy to swing. SBC end cap for balance and control. New VIBEX vibration dampening handle reduces sting on mis hits.

Omaha 519 BBCOR $199 (Not pictured) – 1 Piece alloy bat with balanced swing weight and (new) VIBEX vibration reduction system in the handle. Plastic end cap. Still a very good bat with a large sweet spot and a nice stiff feel on contact. The 2019 Omaha BBCOR also gets a fancy new grip.

2016 Louisville Slugger Z4000 SlowPitch Softball Bat Line-Up

 

Slugger Z4000 USSSA BALANCED

Z4000 USSSA BALANCED

The 2016 Louisville Z4000 slow pitch bats come in six different flavors to cater to each individual’s tastes.  Starting with the balanced model Z4000 USSSA Balanced, which is a 100% composite bat made from the Pure 360 carbon fiber, that also incorporates the TRU3 – 3-piece Technology. Mixing these high end composites with the TRU3 will help direct any potentially lost energy of the swing back into the softball. This model has a balanced swing weight to make it more of a line drive/contact hitters softball bat. It has a tapered handle with a 12″ barrel length and a 2 1/4″ barrel diameter. This balanced model is approved for USSSA, NSA and ISA. The Z4000 Balanced USSSA is not allowed in ASA or ISF.

 

Slugger Z4000 BALANCED ASA

Z4000 ASA/USSSA BALANCED

The next softball bat in the group is the 2016 Z4000 ASA/USSSA Balanced . This bat is very similar to the previous slow-pitch bat save a few little differences. They both have the same composite & offer the TRU3 connecting piece that eliminates vibration and improves overall stiffness and feel. Where they differ, however, is that the ASA/USSSA Balanced is approved for all major softball associations. Louisville slugger was able to do this by using their Swing 1 inner Disc Technology, or ‘S1iD’. The S1iD is composed of two inner discs inserted into the sweet spot of the barrel to allow for maximum pop right out of the wrapper without having to wait for it to break in at all. This softball bat is approved for USSSA, ASA, NSA,ISA and ISF associations.

Slugger Z4000 USSSA END LOADED

Z4000 USSSA END LOADED

Now we have the Louisville Slugger Z4000 End Loaded USSSA . This is the exact same slow pitch bat as the first model mentioned but with an End Loaded weighting. This bat will be ideal for players who love to crush the ball over the fence & have the power+strength to use it. You get all the other great bells and whistles, just a little more inertia behind the ball. This Z4000 SBZ416U-E is approved for USSSA, NSA, and ISA. It is not approved for ASA or ISF.

 

 

Z4000 ASA END LOADED

Z4000 ASA/USSSA END LOADED

Next is the Louisville Slugger Z4000 ASA/USSSA End Loaded bat. This is exactly like the second softball bat talked about but it features an end load as well. Again great for the players who have enough strength to utilize the end loaded softball bat to help put some extra distance on the ball. This bat is approved for all major softball associations: USSSA, ASA, NSA, ISA and ISF.

 

 

 

Z4000 USSSA POWER LOADED (SHOPPE BACKMAN EDITION)

Z4000 USSSA POWER LOADED (SHOPPE BACKMAN EDITION)

Finally we get to the heaviest end loaded bat Louisville makes in the Z4000 line up. With an extra half ounce end load, this Shoppe Backman model made for Louisville Sluggers own pro-sponsored team is ready to put some heavy damage on the ball. The Z4000 SBZ416U-PL is the hottest & heaviest Z4000 softball bat Louisville Slugger makes. Made with the same great features and aero space carbon fiber as the other Z4000’s, this USSSA slow pitch bat is a beast! Also approved for NSA and ISA softball associations.

 

 

HYPER-Z SSUSA SENIOR END LOADED

HYPER-Z SSUSA SENIOR END LOADED

The last Louisville softball bat to talk about here is the SSUSA Senior Z4000. This bat is also made with the Pure 360 composite material and the TRU3 connection technology. It has an end load like some of the other Z4000’s, but this SSUSA model is not restricted in the way other associations are. The gates have been opened wide in terms of performance for the manufacturers, so you will be getting a slow-pitch bat that tries to walk as close to the edge of maximum power without sacrificing the durability of the product. This Softball Bat is approved for SSUSA play only.
