Louisville Slugger M9 Maple Wood Bat: M9C271NC Adult
Average Customer Review
If an end loaded, whip action bat is what your looking for, then the C271 is your stick. The handle is light and long, putting all the power in the sweet spot of the bat. The bell knob grip feels great, and the light handle allows for quick adjustments mid swing. The natural finish looks sharp and marks left from the ball can be buffed off, if you care about such things.
Since this is a skinnier handled end-loaded bat, don't miss. One mistake inside and that's all she wrote. Not recommended for players making the switch from aluminum to wood. Said players would be much better suited with the all black P72 model.
Last season, I went through several brands of wood bats before I got to the Louisville M9 models. Since then, no wood bat will get the praise that I give the M9 series. This particular model packs quite a punch for being a leaner, lighter model. She lasted roughly 3 months of BP and live and took between 1-2 dozen hits of the end and inside before I finally killed her.
The M9 series will be popular around your teammates, so be prepared for that. Also, if you prefer a "beefer" bat, you'll want to go with the P72, which in my opinion is the best wood bat available to the public.
Excellent balance and feel. Have used this bat in a few games already and hitting the ball hard almost every time. This bat has very good pop. I have played in a wood bat baseball league for over 10 years and this bat feels the best of all the ones I have used.
Cost is a little high.

In 1842, J. Frederick Hillerich emigrated with his family from Baden-Baden, Germany to the United States. Eight years before, the 1834 Book of Sports had made its debut as the nation's first publication covering baseball. But when he arrived in Baltimore, J. Frederick Hillerich would never have dreamed of the future impact his family would have on America's favorite pastime. Here's a short video promo from Louisville Slugger.
