The past couple of seasons, the Louisville Slugger Prime series has been some of the most popular composite baseball bats for players of all ages across the nation. Louisville Slugger was not satisfied with the performance and popularity of last year's Prime 916, so they expanded and upgraded their latest lineup. New for the 2016-17 baseball season is the Prime 917! The Prime 917's predecessor, the Prime 916, was one of the most highly reviewed baseball bats from last season and the Prime 917 is picking up right where the 916 left off. Here's what early adopters have already said about the BBCOR model:
“This is a hot bat! The new composite material sounds awesome and gives great pop. Very balanced as well.”
“Great bat for power hitters and contact hitters. Grip feels amazing, doesn't feel like ordinary lizard skin. Huge upgrade with the tru-3 connection piece. Not as much flex as the 916, which I like. With amazing contact you won't hear a thing, but feels amazing coming off the bat. If you want a balanced bat with the most pop you have ever experienced, buy the Louisville Slugger Prime 917.”
The Prime 917 provides players with the best of both worlds by having a huge, extended barrel and a light swing weight. As the review stated, it is ideal for both power and contact hitters alike. Plus, a variety of new features have surfaced on the Prime 917 to differentiate and improve from 2016's design. These features include:
Louisville Slugger, a name associated with only the best bats in baseball, puts unparalleled performance in the hands of the nation's players regardless of age. The Prime 917 is available in a BBCOR baseball bat , a senior league baseball bat (also known as youth big barrel), and a youth model with a 2 ¼ inch barrel diameter.
