Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010

Now being introduced into the Louisville Slugger Fastpitch lineup...The Meta! It was only a matter of time before the Meta made its way into fastpitch softball. Now it's here and it's ready to mash!

Bat Benefits

Slugger got after it when designing the barrel that would make up this two-piece, all-composite bat. And the result of their engineering tenacity is the new Mash Composite Design. The Mash barrel will come with a gapped wall design that is composed of both an inner and outer barrel that will work together to produce top results. For Slugger's gapped design, the size of the spacing between the inner and outer barrel will be large. As well, that spacing will be consistent throughout the entire hitting surface of this bat. That should help create top performance along the entire length of the bat's barrel. 

The innovation didn't stop with the barrel! The VTX connection point will bring back all the benefits of its predecessor (the VCX), but the visual of the connection piece will be improved as it has a new "lattice" look to it. And the F2X end cap will be lightweight and stunning to look at as it is made with a clear material that will look excellent.

This drop 10 model is going to be balanced in its feel! That will make it a very versatile bat as contact hitters, power hitters and even slap hitters could reach for this bat and achieve their top potential!

Warranty

This bat will indeed be covered with a twelve (12) month warranty extended by Louisville Slugger. If you get the bat and notice something wrong with it before 12 months have passed from the purchase date, please let the Bat Experts at JustBats know about the situation. The Bat Experts are knowledgeable about the warranty replacement process for Louisville Slugger and they will get you the information needed to begin organizing the bat replacement process!

Got it Early!!! Sophie Player

Pros: This bat feels pretty good, not quite as soft as any of the numerous Ghost bats that we've used for years, however still really good vs normal bats. The sound is definitely different than a ghost, much more like an LXT, however not the same. The barrel seems a little smaller when I line up the rubber joints between the Ghost Advance, but not enough to make a difference.

Cons: I think this design and look is ugly, but I'm also sick of Ghost bats breaking after a month or two so that's why I'm trying it.

Meta Dana Nelson Other

Pros: My 14 year old Granddaughter has used and broken several ghost advanced bags. We were tired of sending them back to be replaced so we tried the new Meta. Her first at bat she hit a gone run. The ball doesn’t sound quite as good coming off the bat as the ghost but it does have pop.

Cons: None so far.

I DON'T RECOMMEND BE AWARE!! Stephanie McMullen Parent

Pros: Looks great but that's about all!!

Cons: I got this bat for my 14 year old daughter. She used it with her hitting coach (2 lessons) and at practice now it has a rattle sound coming from inside the barrel. The bat sounds like something is broke on the inside. We sent back to Louisville for the warranty is was approved and an replacement was sent to use my daughter used that for 1 day and the same rattling nose has happened!! Now we don't have a bat since we have reached our limit of warranties.

Broken bat after limited use Jim Coach

Pros: The bat has nice balance and pop to it.

Cons: I have been buying LXT's for years. My daughter lost her last LXT at a tournament and there were very limited options for a new one. I end up buying this new Meta bat for her replacement. Its already broken after just a few games and practices. It lasted a little over two months. I'm not sure this baseball bat was ready for fast-pitch softball.

6 months Greg Parent

Pros: Decent pop and very balanced. My daughter likes this bat.

Cons: Developed a rattle in the barrel at 4 months and a wobble at 6 months, then I sent it in for warranty replacement. I could not tell really any difference between the LXT and Meta other than the LXT seems more durable.

Doesn't last Karl Raue Parent

Pros: Pops

Cons: Breaks, one good hit and it was done. Warranty is not great. You can only use it to buy regular bat, not a custom. No other bat costs as much so you lose money.

Why? Why? Danny Coach

Pros: Hot bat

Cons: With a reputable name like Louisville Slugger you would figure they would not construct something so poorly. So my 14 yr old daughter had the bat for two months before it started to rattle at the end. Louisville Slugger replaced the bat and another one was issued. The replacement bat did it as well three weeks later. For a $450 dollar bat this astonishes me. The bad thing is, this bat would be amazing if it wasn't for that issue. Go buy a different bat

Look past this bat Bob Parent

Pros: Excellent pop

Cons: Broke internally 3 weeks after getting it. Only seen tee work never seen a live pitch. Louisville seems to be making their bats cheaper and charging more.

Great customer service Ryan Parent

Pros: This bat has great pop and feel. Unfortunately the first bat developed the rattle within a few months and the warranty bat did the same thing. Since the bat broke twice within the same year Louisville gave me a voucher for another bat. The bat wasn’t in stock right away, but within a month it became available and I used the voucher to get another bat. I also went up to a bigger bat to see if that helps. I had to purchase a different bat in the meantime so this will be a backup. I gave this 4 stars because customer service was great and bat has awesome pop and feel, but durability is still in question.

Cons: No durability

Solid bat, but room for improvement JRR Parent

Pros: My daughter loves her Meta. She really likes the feel of the bat... very balanced. Says the -10 swings lighter than other brands' balanced -11's. Seems relatively hot out of the wrapper. Love the sound, love the graphics.

Cons: Developed a rattle after 6 months. Granted, it received a lotta use during that time between practices and games, but still, other bats have had no issues with same workload. Return/replacement was easy, but had to pay shipping to send bat in to LS. Grip also started to unravel after 2 months, so had to replace that.

Have a question about the Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

For the Meta -10 vs RXT models, do they have similarities with each other or different?
Jesus Barajas
The Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010 will be a different bat when compared to the RXT models. The RXT model features different barrel technology and a stiffer connection point making the bat more ideal for a "power" type of hitter.
Cameron
My daughter is 11 years old, 4'11-5', plays travel ball, and hits with a 32/22. Would you recommend the Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010 or Prism? She's a power hitter but looking for good pop.
Mario
Both the Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010 and the DeMarini Prism are excellent bats to consider for your daughter! Based on design concept, these two models of bats will be very similar and will be the most balanced options from both manufacturers. Which one to get will really come down to player preference; the Prism has been on the market longer so it is easier to know what you are getting in terms of performance and durability.

Is this bat approved for ASA play? Other websites say only USA , USSSA, NSA, ISA, WSBC.
Ray McClellan
The Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010 is approved for ASA play as the USA stamp serves the same designation purposes as the prior ASA stamp.
Cameron
Since this is a composite bat, does it require a break in period?
Will Meeks
Yes, we recommend about 50 swings either off of a tee or by soft toss with a rotation of the barrel after each swing for the Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010.

Does it sound like an LXT or does it sound different? I have an LXT and it sounds dead and terrible and I haven't even had it for a year! Also, the durability, does it hold up good, and is it heavy?
aspen thompson
Unfortunately, we do not know what sound difference the Louisville Slugger Meta -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2492010 might emit and be able to compare this to the LXT. As for the durability on the Meta, early reviews have been positive thus far.

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.
