918 slugger Dave coach

Pros: none

Cons: The 918 vs the 916 is a very poor bat. I have always had all 4 boys swing there products. The 918 from top to bottom is a poor bat. The pop off of the bat is very poor.

NO POP Brian A parent

Pros: The back looks really nice.

Cons: Own multiple LS bats and this is by far the worst of the 4 bats we currently own. No where close to the pop the 916 has. Ball comes off flat on 918, and when my son switches back to the 916 it flies off the bat. I would definitely suggest not suggest spending $350 on this bat.

DROP 10 PRIME 918 Andrew parent

Pros: Huge sweet spot. No sting complaints. They fixed the swivel at the connection between the barrel and the handle from the 917. The Lizard Skin is amazing.

Cons: Not as balanced as we would have hoped.

Prime 918 Randle parent

Pros: The bat looks and feels great also end loaded love that. My son kills the ball with the bat but I miss the old 916......

Cons: The USA stamp has killed the pop that the old 916(hottest bat on the market) had but is still better than any of the Easton Products I have seen in the last few tournaments and also on our travel team.

Prime Hacksaw parent

Pros: Looks nice no vibration. Got this with Demarini Zen voucher.

Cons: There was no pop to it. I got this with the Demarini Zen voucher. Next time I will have my son demo at bat for this price(That's my fault) . I also think my son(10yo 7olbs) is not made for a composite bat. He is doing well with alloy.

Not hot out of the wrapper Batting_Coach coach

Pros: One of the nicest bats I have owned for my 8yr old son. Great Balance and 28/18 weighed 18.7 oz so pretty close to true weight. Bat takes 500+ hits to break in. You can hear the pitch of the bat change once I did the break in process. I'm up over 300 balls off the tee swinging at 50% power while rotating the bat. You could hear it and see the pop off the barrel up around 200 swings. I agree with everyone else but the barrel is very stiff. I would bet money that this bat once broken in and playing with some heat in the barrel will be a monster.

Cons: 500-600 hits off the tee to get the bat to start waking up. Other then that its balanced and swings fast through the zone. Grip is fantastic and the connection piece looks better quality then the Mako's. Don't expect it to be a CF Zen out of the wrapper though. 3000 psi on the compression tester out of the wrapper for a composite.

What a dud of a bat Baseball_Dad parent

Pros: I honestly gave up after 2 months of my son using this bat over winter workouts. Looks great and is a bit end loaded compared to his Solo 618. Nothing like the 917 or 916 Primes.

Cons: Must have put over 1000 hits on this bat and it did not get any hotter. One of the nicest bats we have tried for Travelball and well balanced. Our 28" bat measured 27.5" from tip to tip so I'm a bit ticked that its exactly 1/2" shorter then his Mako. The bat weighed 18.7oz for a 28/18 so its very close to true weight. I would of been happy if it even performed evenly with the Mako but the bigger barrel produces a lot of back spin turning liners into easy flyballs. I would not recommend this bat for any kid under 10 due to the amount of bat speed to get the barrel to compress.

Louisville Slugger Prime 918 - Excellent Bat Rich parent

Pros: - Great looking to bat to start with - Once the bat has been "properly" broken in it is as hot as any bat in this market. - Tremendous feel and well balanced - Basically zero sting on missed hits - Well priced (if you can find the 918 in stock) no a days -

Cons: - I am being very picky here... - the bat is actually a little shorter than advertised. For example, I purchased a 29/19 and although the bat weighed pretty true (19.4 ounces) it was not quite 29 inches long. It was 28 7/8 inches long. Now, that's ultimately not a big deal to my son but something to consider. - We have hit well over 300 balls to date from tee work, soft toss, and live pitching and it seemed to take about 200 solid swings to start "breaking in" (not sure that's a con but thought I would throw it out there)

Questions and Answers (13)

Have a question about the Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

What is the actual weight of this bat?
Andrew
This 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLP918X10) will have a -10 length-to-weight ratio. However, I would imagine the static weight of the bat would probably be about a 0.5 oz -to- 1.5 oz over the listed weight. That extra weight can usually be attributed to the manufacturer adding the grip to the bat after the bat is weighed in the factory.
Ben
Is this bat a power bat because I am a power hitter?
adam
The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10 is a very high performing bat with a balanced swing weight, and it works great for any type of hitter.
Jason
I was looking at this bat at a demo stand this weekend - the 29" Prime 918, next to my son's 29" Combat, is about 1/2 to 3/4 shorter - is there a reason why & how is the 29" measured?
JC
The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10 could appear shorter than another bat; this can be the result of the end cap design. With that said, the bats are measured from the bottom of the knob to the start of the end cap/end of barrel.
Cameron
My son has been swinging a 2017 Mako Beast 28 inch 17 oz bat. I just ordered and received the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime -10 28 inch 18 oz, and when I matched it up to the Beast it was about a 1/2 inch shorter. My question should I move up to the 29 inch 19oz? My son is 49 inches weighs 51 pounds.
cb
Our charts are right around that size of 28''. I would recommend going with the 29'' because of the swing weight will make the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10 a good fit in a 29''.

What is the difference between the 2017 Prime & 2018 Prime other than the graphics? Thx!

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLP918X10) features a new New RTX End Cap which Creates A Longer Barrel Shape With Improved Durability.
Carter
Will this bat be legal for use in 2018? PONY league and tournament. Is the USA stamp on it?
rob
The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10 does not feature the USA marking that will be required for play in PONY baseball in 2018, so it will not be legal.
Logan
My son plays 10U, weighs 74 lbs and is 4'7". Should I order him 30/20 or 29/19?
TW
Based on his current height and weight, we would suggest a 29" 19 oz version of the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10. He is only a couple of inches and pounds off from the 30" being the suggested size though, so you can certainly bump up if you are comfortable doing that.
Jason
My son is 11 and is 4'6" and 60 pounds. Would you recommend the 28" or 29"?
Baseball Math
Based on the player's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10 in a 29 inch model.
Cameron
My son is 9 and is 4'0" and 50 pounds. Would you recommend the 28" or 29"?
Lee
Based on his height and weight, it is suggested that your player uses a 27" bat. They could use a 28 depending on his preference. As far as drop goes, a drop 10 is around what a 9 year old swings. The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLP918X10) would be a great bat for your player.
Mick
If I were to clean this bat after use, what would I need to use to clean it without damaging it?
Ty Justice
For cleaning your 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10, I recommend that you use only mild soap and water because they won't harm the surface coating or graphics. Make sure that you are not using any solvents, acetone or other heavy-duty cleaners, as they will damage the surface and may cause paint chipping to occur.
Tyler
It sounds like there is something loose inside the bat. It moves around when I swing, like a small pebble or something. Is that normal?
Kevin
Yes, that actually is somewhat normal for all bats. Manufacturers use an adhesive glue to secure the end cap onto bats, and over time a small piece of the excess glue can flake off and sound like a very small pebble. Sometimes this happens after 100 swings, sometimes after 1000, but it happens to almost any bat eventually. As long as you aren't seeing any performance issues, I wouldn't worry about it too much
Kyle J.
Does this bat currently come in a 2 5/8" barrel?
randysmitb
Only the BBCOR model of the Prime 918 is a 2 5/8" model.
Kyle J.
What is the circumstance of the handle?
Mike Anich
The circumference of the Louisville Slugger Prime 918 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLP918X10 is 5". The barrel on this bat is 2 3/4 diameter.

About the Brand

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.

After a short while, the Hillerichs moved to Louisville, where J. Fred started a woodworking shop in 1856. Two of his sons, Adam and John Andrew "Bud" were born in the United States and would later join their father in his business. By 1864 "J.F. Hillerich, Job Turning" was in operation and filled orders for businesses by custom-turning everything from balusters to bedposts.

The firm thrived, and by 1875 the little woodworking shop employed about 20 people. In 1880 Bud Hillerich, who was an amateur baseball player, became an apprentice in his father's shop. Young Bud made his own baseball bats along with bats for several of his teammates.

The debate over the origins of the first bat continues to generate controversy among baseball enthusiasts, but the younger Hillerich was most certainly involved in getting his father's business involved with what would become the company's signature item. According to company legend, the first bat was turned by Bud for Pete "The Old Gladiator" Browning in 1884. Browning was a star on Louisville's professional American Association team - the Eclipse. On a spring afternoon Bud, then seventeen, witnessed Browning break his favorite bat. Bud offered to make a bat for his hero, and Browning accepted. After the young wood shop apprentice lathed a quality stick from white ash, according to the story, Browning got three hits with it in the next game.

Louisville Slugger gloves are worn by more pitchers in Major League Baseball than any other glove.
