Pros:  Excellent bat. My son needs a -5 for one year and Omaha delivers with a great product for the money. Big pop. His older brother loves the -3 Omaha---so we will move into that when he goes to HS next year

Cons:  None

what bat do you suggest the 2017 omaha 517, the Easton 2017 XL3 or the 2017 rawlings 5150. all in drop 5. im not 100% sure which one so id like to hear from you

It really depends on you hitting style, if you are more of a contact hitter, I would advise going with either the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO5175 or the 2017 Rawlings 5150 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL755 both are very balanced bats. If you are more of a power hitter I would advise going with the more end loaded feeling 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X35.

What are the main differences between this bat and the 2017 Easton XL3? Balanced swing weight versus end-loaded means what and does one benefit a contact/ line drive hitter versus a power hitter more?

Balanced means the weight is distributed evenly throughout the bat, while end-loaded typically shifts .5-1 oz towards the barrel end of the bat. Balanced models typically are preferred by contact hitters, while power hitters generally like end-loaded models.

My son's school requires a BESR certification. Does this bat qualify?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO5175 will not feature BESR certification. The last year manufacturers produced bats featuring BESR certification (which is what high school and college players were using) was in 2010. Starting in the spring of 2011 all high school and college players were required to use BBCOR bats and that holds true today; these bats have a -3 length to weight ratio.

What's the difference between this bat and Omaha 516? Will it be OK for a contact hitter?

This 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO5175) will be different from the Omaha 516 because of the new ST 7U1+ alloy material that allows for a big sweet spot and a stiffer feel at contact. As well, for this 2017 Omaha 517, Slugger will cease using the Flexband technology that helped keep older models of the bat within the requirements set forth by BBCOR certification. This is definately a good option for a contact or power hitter. The Omaha series has been a very popular option for players for a very long time.

How does the the 916 you recommended compare to the 2017 517? What are the main differences?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO5175 is a one-piece alloy bat where as the Louisville Slugger Prime 916 is a three piece fully composite bat.

I am looking for a bat for a 13U select player. He would prefer a 29" drop 5 -I understand they need to use a drop 5 in 13u--and he likes the Louisville composite, but I am not seeing that they make them in that size. Is this the closest bat or does he have other options?

Unfortunately at this time we do not have any 29" -5 Louisville Slugger composites. It is not a very popular size. At the moment we only have one bat that is a 29" -5 and it is not composite. I would recommend seeing if he could swing a 30" -5 and checking out the 2016 Louisville Slugger Prime 916 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLP9165).

Does this model have the 30 Day Performance Promise?

Unfortunately the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO5175 does not have a 30 Day Performance Promise. None of Louisville Slugger's 2017 bats will carry that type of promise.

Does this bat need breaking in?

Since the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO5175 is an alloy bat, it does not require any breaking in to be game ready. Only composite barreled bats will need to go through a break-in period.

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. In many ways, the storied 130+ year history of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat began in the talented hands of 17-year-old John A. "Bud" Hillerich. 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. Bud was in the stands as the team's star, P.... read more
