Pros:  Very good balance at this weight with the new USA standard. We got this as a replacement for the Easton 650 (also a 28" -9) that the end cap broke off (2nd Easton this has happened to) so we tried moving to LS. The Easton was more end-loaded than the Vapor. The Vapor is definitely more balanced. Very good pop on this bat. He is hitting more balls to the outfield than with his Easton - maybe due to balance? No vibration issues so far. Great price for this bat of this quality. We went with this over the Omaha because he doesn't like the tapered handle on the other LS bats.

Cons:  Barrel length is shorter than what we would have liked, but most of the 28" bats have shorter barrels with the USA standard. This is the only reason we gave 4 stars for Overall rating.

Got a 30 inch but too big for son. Went and got 29 inch. I noticed the barrel size seems smaller. Why is that? Both are 2 5/8.

The barrel size on the 2018 Louisville Slugger Vapor -9 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBVA18B9 is 2 5/8 inch diameter. It may just appear to be smaller due to the long taper but everything will still be regulation size.

This will have the new USA Approved Sticker on it? Any other bats - similarly priced - that you would recommend? Or maybe a bit more expensive?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Vapor -9 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBVA18B9 does feature the USA Baseball stamp and at this time would be the best option (only option actually) in the -9 category.

What is the difference between the Louisville Slugger Series 7 aluminum and the Easton ALX50?

It is hard to say what performance and durability differences one would see between the alloy used in the 2018 Louisville Slugger Vapor -9 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBVA18B9 to that of an Easton model.

What is the difference between this bat, the Omaha, and the 618?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Vapor -9 USA Baseball Bat (WTLUBVA18B9) and the Omaha 518 USA (WTLUBVA18B9) will be really similar as they both are one-piece, all-alloy bats. The biggest difference is that this bat has a -9 length-to-weight ratio while the Omaha is a -10. As well, the Omaha features a little higher quality aluminum material to it. The Solo 618 (WTLSLS618X10) will be different from both the Omaha and the Vapor due to the addition of a composite end-cap on top of the all-alloy build. The composite end-cap on the 618 makes it a little easier to swing (feels more balanced) than the Vapor and the Omaha.

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
