Pros:  well balanced with no sting technology. Hypo alloy with composite cap makes the price more, but well worth it! The pop on this bat is similar to the CF Zen, but the weight is spot on. The pop on this bat is encredible. if you want a bat that is similar to the Zen with the wieght less and more balanced than look no further. The pop on this badboy is encredibile. Hypo Alloy with no sting on foul tips. This bat rocks.

Cons:  none so far

Pros:  My son is 9 years old and we bought him a 29/19. I can not compare to the CF Zen, but we have owned both the 2017 -9 Voodoo 2 5/8 and -10 Voodoo 2 3/4, and this bat has more pop than both. Very well balanced and Very powerful. Swing weight is much lighter than both of the Voodoo's. This bat is very consistent and we are very pleased with it. If you are looking for a one piece alloy bat, this is a must try. Ball fly's off bat. Even when not hit in the sweet spot, it produces a pretty good hit. A lot of feedback in the bat. No vibration issues. Awesome grip.

Cons:  Sweet spot is probably about half the size of the Voodoo, however very powerful when hit in the sweet spot.

“Awesome bat!!”

Pros:  Son really loves this bat so far. He loves the look and feel and so do I. The pop that this bat makes sounds like it's composite, most be the hyper alloy. It's very balanced and he has hit some foul tips and no stinging! We both like that:) Even though it's not USA approved for 2018 it does not matter to us because we play USSSA and AYL and others that only require the 1.15 BPF.

Cons:  None yet

Pros:  My 11u travel ball son is loving this bat. The sound is amazing and the pop is like no other bat he has tried this year. Several of his teammates have ditched their bats and are using his. The best part is it is extremely balanced and true to its weight.

Cons:  It has a little more vibration/sting on off center hits due to the fact that it’s aluminum and one piece.

My 11 year old is 4'10" and 70 lbs. He is swinging a Mako Hyperlite (28"/16 oz) and he's ready to move to a -10 alloy bat. I'm nervous about adding too much weight too quickly, but I'd like to get him to a 29" with this next bat. How does the swing weight and sweet spot of the Solo 618 compare to the Marucci (MSBC7X10)? Is it advisable to move him up three ounces (29"/19 oz)?

Both bats are very well balanced and should have good sized sweet spots. As for the weight jump, it might be noticeable early on and could take a little getting used to, but once he adjusts to it the added weight will only help with power. We always advise swinging the heaviest bat that you can while still maintaining good bat speed.

My son is about to turn 11 and is 4 ft. 7 in., weighs 85 lbs. We're deciding between this bat and the 2017 Combat Vigor 31/21. I am not sure if the 21 oz. would be too heavy.

At your player's age, I don't think the 21 ounce weight would be too heavy. However, if it is a concern, most player's feel like the 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLS618X10 has a more balanced feel and lighter swing than the Combat Vigor.

How does the balance and pop compare to the green Marucci hex alloy?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLS618X10) has a more advanced end cap allowing it to be a little bit better balanced. When it comes to pop, they are both a one piece allow. Due to that, they will have the same amount of pop.

What is the difference between this 2018 Solo 618 (-10) and the Omaha 518 (-10)?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLS618X10) and the Omaha 518 (WTLSLO518X10) will be pretty similar bats as both feature aluminum designs. However, this Solo differs from the Omaha as it features a slightly different alloy material and also features a composite end-cap that allows the bat to have a slightly more balanced swing feel.

What is the difference between the 2018 -10 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 USSSA approved and the 2018 -11 USA approved?

The difference is the bat certification. Effective January 1st, 2018, USA governed leagues (AABC, AAU, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie, Little League, and PONY) can no longer use the 1.15 BPF rated bats. Their bats going forward will perform a little more like wood than the aluminum bats of the past. The USSSA bats have not had any changes made to their qualifications.

Will this bat have a lighter swing weight than the Best X -10?

Both the 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLS618X10 and the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX10 will have very similar swing weights. Both feature a balanced feel.

Will this bat be approved for USA baseball for 2018?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLS618X10) is USSSA 1.15 certified. It currently is not available with the USA Bat certification. However, the 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -11 USA Baseball Bat (WTLUBS618B11) will have the USA Baseball Stamp and be permitted for leagues requiring that new stamp.

Which bat do you prefer and why between this 2018 Solo -10 or the 2018 Element Alloy (-10) 2 3/4?

It really depends on what type of hitter you are to determine which option is best for you. The 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLS618X10 features a very balanced swing weight and is typically a good option for a contact hitter as a result. The 2018 Axe Element features an end loaded swing weight and is typically a better fit for a power hitter.

Do you think that this bat is a good option for a smaller 10U player of 60 lb moving up from a drop 12 bat?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLS618X10) is a great adjustment. As the players get older it is wise to adjust to a heavier bat to allow the player to get used to swinging a longer and heavier bat.

How does this bat compare to the one-piece composite COMBAT in regard to balance, true weight, and "POP"?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLS618X10) will be just as balanced (or possibly even more balanced) as the one-piece, all-composite COMBAT bats. This Solo 618 will probably weigh anywhere from 0.5 oz to 1.5 oz over the listed weight. The COMBATs are typically more true to their listed weights and a COMBAT will probably only weigh 0.1 oz to 0.5 oz over the listed weight. Lastly, I think the potential for performance between the 2 bats will be very similar overall.

If you could compare the swing weight/speed of the LS 618 Solo 28/18 vs the Easton MAKO BEAST SL17MK10B 28/18. Both say have a fast or fastest swing. The Easton says it has the fastest. I know the Easton is a 2 piece composite. Looking for my 9 year old travel player moving up from a CAT 6. Trying to decide between the two for him.

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLS618X10 will weigh about 0.1 ounces more than the Easton MAKO BEAST. With this small of a difference I would not say that one bat will allow for greater swing weight speeds over the other.

What makes a 1 piece alloy worth $300?

The composite end cap on the 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLS618X10 will make this bat have a lighter swing weight than a typical one-piece alloy bat and this will cause the bat to have a higher retail price.

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

Description for 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLS618X10
New baseball bats for the 2018 season! For the second year running, Louisville Slugger has created a one-piece, all alloy, hybrid bat: the Solo. This season's model, the Solo 618, may be known as a single-piece construction, but due to the new and improved Speed Ballistic Composite End Cap, Louisville Slugger has deemed it a hybrid design. The enhanced end cap, combined with Slugger's SL Hyper aluminum material, delivers increased swing speed, better overall control through the zone, and the most balanced swing weight score (1.1) in the 2018 lineup. As the fastest swinging baseball bat Louisville Slugger has ever manufactured, this model is an excellent choice for players looking to ensure fastballs no longer phase them. Not only does the SL Hyper Alloy provide an increase in swing speed, but it ensures a stiff, traditional feel on contact with maximum energy transfer for further ball flight and more base hits. Not to mention, Louisville Slugger has applied a brand new vibration dampening handle design that helps reduce sting in the hands on mishits so that negative vibration is a thing of the past. The best part? A custom Lizard Skins baseball bat grip comes pre-wrapped around the standard handle for premium comfort and a better overall feel. Louisville Slugger: Hit For Power, Average, & Pride!

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 Senior League Baseball Bat (WTLSLS618X10) features a huge 2 3/4-inch barrel diameter, a drop 10 length to weight ratio, and the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification.
