Pros:  Got this bat for my 9 year old son. His eyes lit up when he saw the bat but when we went to the cage he was really happy. Ball jumps off the bat and has a good sound. Not much vibration on mishits. Can't wait to see him use it this spring.

Cons:  nothing yet

Pros:  My son really likes this bat. Now that he's had some time to get used to it, he is saying that it feels good and he thinks he will do well this season with the bat. I guess only time will tell

Cons:  None that I am aware of yet

Pros:  Bat has some serious pop! I let my son pick a bat and I pick the size. We both hit the gem on this one. Besides the insane looks of this bat the ball flies right of the very forgiving barrel. And the lizard skin grip is an added bonus.

Cons:  The yellow on the end of the handle will chip the first time in the dugout, but worth it!

Pros:  My son is 11 (5ft/80lbs) and just back from his first practice warming up the bat. First, it looks awesome. Let's face it, kids love cool looking things and this thing smokes in the looks department. Many times kids also get stuck in wanting something simply by the name. Everyone in our league seems to swear by Easton as they also sponsor area teams. Let me tell you, this bat performed better than any other bat my son has used. The smile on his face watching balls get smacked to the outfield was priceless. He hit balls further and harder than ever! The 2 3/4 inch barrel (40% longer) and new alloys have made a world of difference. This is definitely a bat for a boy to be proud of. I also took pride in having my son use a Louisville Slugger just as I had used about 40 years ago.

Cons:  None as of yet. Durability is always a big question but the 30 day return policy and 1 year warranty helps address that.

Pros:  We compared side by side with same length (30") Voodoo, CF7 and S3, and my son gets significantly more distance with this bat. He's not a true power hitter, so different kids may get different results. He likes the flared handle, but others may not.

Cons:  None yet. Note, information that came with the bat says 30-day performance promise expires 4/30/2016.

Cons:  paint chips off easily, but does not affect performance.

Pros:  Got this bat for my 8year old son. First time the other kids saw it they all wanted to use it. So they did. We just finished off a tournament and the kids were all dropping bombs with this bat. Nobody complained about vibration and it has a good pop to it. Would definetely recommend.

Cons:  Read reviews about bat denting, have yet to see any problems. been well used for last month.

Pros:  Price, feel, good pop and kids like the look.

Cons:  The bat dented in one weekend tourney. I dont think you can let any player over about 90 lbs swing this model in a 28/18. It'll dent. Louisville did replace it with the 2017 517 model though in about 2 weeks. very easy process.

Pros:  I am 10 years old and play AAA/Major ball. This bat has been good luck for me because it has increased my confidence at the plate. Since I have been using this bat I have been hitting the ball harder than ever. I also don't need batting gloves because of the Lizard Skin grip. I would recommend this bat.

Cons:  The bat has a few dents.

Pros:  my 11U son says bats feels great! took him a few swings to get used to it, he was changed from Easton S2. Bat feels like end loaded bat! Has lots of pop!

Cons:  none so far other than maybe bat's balance is weight end loaded. could take some time to get used to it if player is not stocky. IMO

Pros:  I bought the 28 inch for son 2 seasons ago and the 29 inch this past fall. I can honestly say that both bats had pop, there durable and we'll balanced. My son ended up with the highest batting average and the most Rbi's. Most of it is because of his hit tenique but the balls fly off these bats. 3 other kids switch to his bat and you can see that these bats have pop.

Cons:  The 28 inch bat lasted about 40 games before we noticed some dings on the barrel. So far on the 29 inch bat we've played about 20 games and it's holding up.

Pros:  I got the -10 for my 9 year old son and he loves it, this last tournament in two games he hit 7 doubles and 1 triple. All sounded real nice off the bat over the outfielders heads. I know its all in the technique but if you need a big barrel for a power hitter under 12 years old I think this bat will be great.

Cons:  none yet i was worried about denting but at this age it has been hanging in there.

Is this allowed in 13 prep baseball league?

It would dependent upon the league in which you were playing to determine if this 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) would be legal or not. I would recommend against it though. I would probably suggest to look to a bat with a -5 length-to-weight ratio or one with BBCOR certification (if it is not already required for your league).

My son is 11 and he will turn 12 in a month. He is 5'7" weighs 150 pounds. He will be playing Pony League this year. I need the bats to be 2 5/8" big barrel. What do you recommend? Also, what are the bat sizes?

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 32 inch bat. For Pony League, one can use any big barrel bat that is 2 5/8". The 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO516X would not be legal since it has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. As for the bat to get, there are many great options and it would be best to reach out to a customer coach to ascertain which model would be the best based on budget, material (alloy or composite), swing weight feel (balanced versus end-loaded) and construction (two-piece versus one-piece).

My son is 10 and will be 11 in June. Which length bat should I get? He is tall but not as strong as my other son so the weight is what's throwing me off.

To gain a better understanding of what length and weight of bat to get we would recommend using our bat coach feature and input the player's height and weight. The link to this feature is listed below: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/ The correct weight of bat will ultimately be determined by what the player is currently using and how well they are able to handle that weight. Refer to the judgement of local coaches who know the swing of the player as well as your personal judgement. If you feel the player is struggling with current weight then dropping down one, possibly two ounces, would be recommended. If player is not having issues with current weight of bat then a one ounce, possibly two ounce, increase would bring about better pop.

Are two-piece bats better than one-piece bats?

Neither the one-piece design of this 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) or the two-piece design featured on other bats will be inherently better than the other. A decision will just come down to the preference of the player using the bats. One piece bats like this Omaha 516 will feature a stiff feel at contact while two-piece bats feature more of a flex feel at contact. A lot of players decide on a specific design by determining whether they prefer the one-piece or two-piece design.

Would you personally suggest this SLO516X or the SLP9150?

If you are wanting a one-piece, all-alloy bat with a balanced swing weight (and 2 3/4" barrel diameter), I would recommend this 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) for use. However, if you are attracted to a two-piece, all-composite bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter (and a balanced swing weight as well), I would consider looking to the Prime 916 (SLP9150).

Is there a big difference between the 2 3/4" and 2 5/8" barrels? My son is going to play in Juniors, ages 13 and 14. He currently uses a CF7 2 1/4" barrel. I wanted to get a big barrel bat for him to try.

The 2 3/4" barrel diameter is 1/8" larger than the 2 5/8" barrel diameter. The Junior division of both Little League and Dixie Youth do not allow the use of 2 3/4" barrel bats. The largest that can be used is a 2 5/8" barrel. Bats that have a composite barrel must be BBCOR certified, and bats that have an alloy barrel can be USSSA certified.

What is the actual weight on the 28" 18 oz. SLO516X Omaha?

The 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) weigh about .80 of an ounce heavier than their listed weight. I would guess that a 28" 18 oz. SLO516X would weight between 18.5 oz. and 19 oz.

(1) I am considering the 29"/19 oz Omaha 516 or the 29"/17 oz Catalyst. Which bat would be better for a 10 year old who weighs 70 pounds? We are searching for a Big Barrel, but not sure that 2 oz makes a huge difference? (2) Which model will last the longest for us? (3) Will the one-piece alloy construction make a 19 oz bat feel as light as a 17 oz or 18 oz bat?

(1) For most 10 year old players, I would recommend going with a bat that has a 29" length to it (just like the length you are wanting). Typically, you want your player to get the longest and heaviest bat that he can handle, so if he can handle the 29"/19 oz model, I would recommend this 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X). (2) I definitely think the 29"/19 oz Omaha will have the best chance to last the longest for you with the heavier weight (I might even suggest looking to a 30"/20 oz option of the bat to get one to last the longest). (3) The one-piece design won't necessarily make the 29" Omaha 516 feel as light as a 17 oz or 18 oz bat, but the balanced feel of the Omaha will contribute to the bat being easier to swing by any type of hitter.

Does this bat come in a drop 12? Looking for the 30"/18 oz size. What's my best option for the 30"/18 oz size with a 2 3/4" barrel?

This 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) is not available in the 30"/18 oz size. The best option that we carry from Louisville Slugger in the 30"/18 oz size with a 2 3/4" barrel diameter is the Louisville Slugger Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat (SLCT15X). I would recommend looking at the Catalyst as it has received excellent reviews from JustBats customers.

We are an authorized dealer of Louisville Slugger bats so if you were to order the 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) from us the bat is covered under the 30 day performance promise.

How does this bat compare to the SLP915X?

Both the 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO516X and the 2015 Louisville Slugger Prime 915 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLP915X are going to be excellent bats that come with Louisville Slugger's 30-Day Performance Promise. The main difference between these two bats is that the 915 is going to be a three-piece composite design while the 516 is a one-piece alloy construction.

How long will an alloy bat like this last before it will lose its pop?

It's tough to say when an alloy bat will lose its "pop." The 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) does come with a 30 day promise as well as a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty.

It states in the video that the 516 has an extended barrel. Does the 515 and the 516 have the same barrel length?

The 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO516X features new 7U1 alloy. This new alloy provides the 516 with a longer barrel than previous models in the past. The 515 will not have as long of a barrel as the 516.

What is the difference between the 516 and 716 models?

The 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X) is a single-piece, balanced alloy model while the 2016 Louisville Slugger Select 716 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLS716X) is a two-piece hybrid design with a composite handle and alloy barrel. The Select is also more end-loaded.

About Louisville Slugger
Louisville Slugger

Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport.

Back in the 1880s, Bud was working at his father's woodworking shop in Louisville, Kentucky. Legend has it that Bud, a lover of baseball and a player himself, slipped away from work one afternoon in 1884 to watch Louisville's major league team, the Louisville Eclipse.
