  • It has a very big sweet spot, no sting what so ever,and it hits line drives even when it is not good contact,it is just the right amount of weight for you to be able to swing fast but still heavy enough to drive it over the outfielders heads,very good durability

Pros:  Great feel and pop in -10. I need two bats because I play in two leagues that require 2 3/4" and 2 5/8" barrels-so I'll probably get the 2 5/8" for when I need it. Performance is great and the ball feels good coming off. Really balanced.

Cons:  The custom lizard skin grip is nice, but I usually prefer athletic tape

Pros:  Good pop and balance.

Cons:  Have sent 2 in for warrantee replacement due to denting. I'd suggest for 10u and younger. Only used in games and live batting cages with baseballs with 12u player.

Pros:  Has a lot of pop coming off the bat, my 10 yr. old loves this bat, not to mention he follows the college world series and that's all he see's them using. He's been swinging a 28 (-10) but know I have just upgraded him to a 29 (-10)

Cons:  The cons are, I just sent the 28 inch back in because of dents, my son is ten and plays 11u major, I don't know if it's because he is swinging the 28 inch and the 29 inch may be a little stronger so we are trying that in terms of longevity.

Pros:  When it was working correctly, the bat had a nice pop to it. My son really liked it until the dents and dead spots happened and the handle fell off.

Cons:  We've sent this bat back 3 times for warranty issues. It dents very easily. One bat dented on the first day of use. When it does dent, the "sweet spot" is considerably altered. You have to send it back to Louisville and it takes approximately a month to get a different bat.   The experience with their customer service is very frustrating.

Pros:  My son plays 10u and really likes this bat. It has great pop, large sweet spot and very minimal vibration. He was hitting singles with his old bat, and we could tell the ball exit speed was an issue, but not with this bat. He is now hitting over the fence, ground rule doubles, triples, etc. This is really an outstanding bat.

Cons:  There are a lot of quality comments about the bat, specifically dents. We have not had an issue with dents however, we use a sleeve for batting cages and/or we use an old bat. The issue we had is that the knob broke off after his 2nd game. It was a straight break at the neck, like it was a weak spot and possibly just a fluke. Justbats replaced this for us and so far so good with the 2nd go round. I will post again if there are any more issues. I still would recommend the bat.

Pros:  Son is playing 8u and loved the bat once it arrived.

Cons:  The knob flew off the bat in less than 20 swings. In all of my life, I have never seen a knob disconnect from a bat. He hit a ball off the barrel and and the KNOB flew off. How could this happen?

Does it come in 2 1/4"?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X dose not come in a 2 1/4" size.

Carter Expert

My son is 4’1” and about 56 lbs; small for a 10 year old. Would you recommend the 26/16 or the 27/17 for him? He’s been using the CAT 6 in a 26/16 and has been doing well with it. But we are looking for a great kid pitch league bat. Heard great reviews about the Omaha 517, any others you would recommend?

Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X in a 28 inch model. If you wanted to go with something smaller you could certainly do so if you feel this would be better for your player. As for the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X, this is a one-piece all alloy model featuring a balanced swing weight. It has been a well reviewed bat and would be a top choice for one seeking a one-piece alloy model.

Is it a USSSA bat?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) is a USSSA approved bat.

Which bat has the better pop out of the Omaha 517 and CAT 7?

Neither the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X nor the Cat 7 would have more pop than the other since they are very similar bats, each of one piece alloy construction with balanced swing weights.

Is this a Composite or Aluminum bat?

Can you use this with the new USA Baseball standards?

We have tried 28"/18 oz bats and my player says he needs something bigger. Will this bat be good for a 10 year old?

If your player can handle the larger 29"/19 oz size of the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X), I would certainly make a recommendation of getting that bat for him. This bat gets excellent reviews from JustBats customers.

Is this good for an 11 year old?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) is a great option for an 11 year old.

Is this for a 9 year old? It says senior so unsure.

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X is a bat that can be used by a player up to the age of 11. Since this bat has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter it should hold up well for the younger players but will certainly break down quicker for players who are older than 11.

My son is almost 15. We are interested in this bat, but keep seeing comments about it denting. Is there an issue with that?

This 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) would display denting for a player that is almost 15 years old. You guys will want to view the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBO5173) as he is at high school age. That BBCOR bat will display better durability for a player your age.

What's the difference between the 517 and 516?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X features a newer ST 7U1+ alloy where the 516 features 7U1 alloy. This new alloy on the 517 provides a bigger sweet spot and a stiffer feel at contact.

What would you recommend me buying, the 2016 Easton S3, or this bat?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X and the 2016 Easton S3 are very similar bats, so it would be hard to say one is better than the other. It would ultimately come down to your personal preference.

Is this model ready to go or does it require a break in?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X is an aluminum bat, so there is no break in required.

How would you compare this to the Cat 7 -8?

Both bats are going to perform very well, and both are one-piece, all alloy bats.

Kyle J. Expert

What is the difference between this bat and the 2016 version? Does this bat have the 40% longer barrel like the 2016 model?

The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X will use an improved version of the 7U1 alloy and this would be the only difference (minus colorway) compared to the 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO516X.

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
