2018 Slugger 918 Prime

Offered in BBCOR, Big Barrel and a USAbat version for 2018, the 918 Prime from Slugger is their premier bat. The two piece composite is a smooth swing and a great feel. In it's fourth year or production Slugger believes to have dialed in the perfect combination of balance and performance.

2018 Slugger 718 Select

Slugger's 718 Select is back for the 2018 season after a hiatus in 2017. This version is an upgrade from the 716 in its massive end cap weight. This is a big hitting bat made for the collegiate player. It is only available in a BBCOR version.

2018 Rawlings VELO Review

2018 Slugger 618 Solo

Our favorite BBCOR bat from 2017 is back in a 618 Solo. And with the success Slugger had with this light swinging single piece aluminum we fell they've added a few sizes and model options too. For the price, and the massive size offerings available, expect high marks from us.

2018 Slugger 518 Omaha

Although Slugger has produced an Omaha bat since the dawn of time, it still feels fresh and new to us. We love the massive size offerings, reasonable price point and trusty name brand. This is a no frills bats that makes no pretense for over-zealous performance. This is an aluminum stick made to hit baseballs, far.

2018 Slugger Catalyst

If you are looking for an inexpensive full composite baseball bat in the big barrel space then look no further than the Slugger Catalyst. There are few bats that compete with it in terms of price and construction type. This bat has been around for quite some time without a ton of upgrades. But, no doubt, there is a reason it has been around for quite some time.

Louisville Slugger Bats

2018 Slugger LXT

The 2018 LXT will likey be the most popular Fastpitch bat on the market in the next 12 months. It's a beautiful bat with a number of size options. It should be on everyone's short list.

2018 LXT Review

2018 Slugger XENO

If the LXT is not the most popular fastpitch bat on the market then expect that to fall to the 2018 Xeno. With a size to fit everyone the only barrier to entry is price.

2018 Slugger PXT

New to the Slugger line, this single piece composite replicates the feel of a CF9 from their sister company. Expect a pricey bat with a bit of traction and, in a few years, a real run at the top.

2018 PXT Review

Louisville Slugger Bats

2018 Slugger Proven

The Proven is an entry level fastpitch bat developed by Slugger who is more concerned with price in their short season than top performing bat. It is a drop 13 so don't expect much.

2018 Proven Review

Louisville Slugger Bats

2018 Slugger X12

A little more serious than the Proven, the X12 is a staple in the drop 12 line of entry level fastpitch bats.

2017 ASA Z4

Slugger's ASA Z4 is one of our favorite slow pitch bats on the 2017 market of slowpitch bats. Tons of drops and weight balances for the serious player.

2017 USSSA Super Z

A USSSA Super Z from Slugger is worth a look from any serious slowpitch player on the market today.

2017 ASA Super Z

Hard to find much wrong with the 2017 ASA Super Z. It's got a number of balance options, has a proven track record, and can flat out rake the ball with the right hitter.

2017 Hyper Z Senior League

Is there a better Senior League Slow Pitch bat than the Hyper Z? Maybe. But, for many on a hunt for a value bat, the Hyper Z will fit the bill.

2017 Slugger 917 Prime

Although a bit of a struggle with durability in the transition, the 917 Prime is the premiere baseball bat in the Slugger line. Great balance, tons of sizes, and a well performing barrel make it a short list qualifier for just about anyone serious about baseball.

BBCOR Bat Reviews

2017 Slugger 617 Solo

Our favorite bat in the BBCOR lineup for 2017, the 617 SOLO is a small BBCOR players dream. Ultra light swing and a 29-inch length to boot? Count us tickled pink.

617 Review

Louisville Slugger Bats

2017 Slugger 517 Omaha

The mainstay in the Slugger line since the dawn of time, the 517 is the latest iteration in the single piece aluminum world. No one thinks this bat is the best performing bat on the market, yet it still outsells most its competitors by a serious margin. 

517 Review

Slugger Catalyst

2017 Slugger Catalyst

The single piece composite bat is back for Slugger in 2017. Although it lacks a number of sizing options (like a BBCOR) it still makes some sense for the right player.

2017 Slugger LXT Hyper

The LXT Hyper from Slugger should be the most popular fastpitch bat on the market for 2017. If it is not then too many people are buying the wrong bat. This thing is flat dynamite.

2017 LXT Review

2017 Slugger XENO Plus
