The 715 Select from Louisville Slugger is part of their 2015 top shelf bat line.

The 715 is considered by Slugger as a three-piece hybrid bat: a composite handle, graphite connective piece and high grade aluminum barrel. The technology in the connective piece is referred to as Tru3 as in, I am guessing here, truly a third piece in the bat.

Quick Review

The 715 is considered by Slugger as a three-piece hybrid bat: a composite handle, graphite connective piece and high grade aluminum barrel. The technology in the connective piece is referred to as Tru3 as in, I am guessing here, truly a third piece in the bat.

Recommendations

In a move that gets high marks from us, since its partly our job to keep track of all these bat names, they have put some thinking behind the bats title: 715 Select. The 7 refers to the same series of gear that Slugger makes (Series 7). The 15 is the release model year: 2015. The Select refers to a line of their wood bats (MLB Select) used often in the minors. It might sound like a silly thing, but the names that are actually informative to the consumers, in our opinion, are a step in the right direction.
We do not Recommend  the 715 Select for any of the following hitters: Those who prefer composite barrels. Those who need or prefer a very light swing. Those who enjoy the sting and feel of single piece bats. Those on a limited budget.

BBCOR 715 Select Recommendations
2015 Louisville Slugger 715 Select Review

We Would Recommended the 715 Select for any of the following hitters: Those who prefer an aluminum barrel but do not like one-piece bats. Those looking for a big swing with a deep balance point and high MOI with a budget not so big. Those who prefer hybrid bats. Those looking for a smooth swing through contact and a desire for more distance and batted ball speed.

Bat Sizing Options

The bat comes in almost every size imaginable. The BBCOR is a drop 3 (obviously) in lengths from 31 to 34 inches. A Senior League/Big Barrel in 2 3/4 with a drop 10. A Senior League/Big Barrel in the 2 5/8 with a drop 10, drop 8 and drop 5. A youth 2 1/4 barrel in a drop 11.

We suspect the drop 5 in the 2 5/8, with the 715’s heavy load, will be as fun a bat to swing as there will be in little league.
