Pros:  The bat looks great but that's about it.

Cons:  This bat did not have a good feel to it and snapped on the 3rd pitch hit on the end, Don't waste your money.

Pros:  I am contact/line drive hitter, and I would say that I still get decent carry off this bat. I'm 5 ft 7 at age 17 and with this bat I still hit the ball as hard as anyone not playing D1. This is my second model of this bat, the first one lasted about 40 games and didn't break until the next summer, after sitting in a New England garage all winter long. It is nice and balanced and doesn't feel like a piece of lumber at all. I've used C271 for as long as I can remember and will use it until I die.

Cons:  It does take about 30 hacks in the cage to "break in" but that's just the nature of a birch bat.

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 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime C271 Hornsby Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPB271A16
The Louisville Slugger MLB Prime wood baseball bat consistently offers the utmost quality and craftsmanship from year to year. These big league bats use MLB Grade wood which comes from only the top 3% of Louisville Slugger's wood. This results in the hardest hitting surface and the straightest grains in comparison to any other wood bat. The newest feature of all the MLB Prime models is the brand-new EXO ARMOR. This cutting-edge and innovative top coat doubles an already hard surface that will allow you the player to immediately notice a first-rate feel and unparalleled sound upon contact. Bone rubbing has become a necessity with wood bats to ensure that the grains and fibers become compressed while making the wood more dense. Not only will all MLB Prime bats come bone rubbed but they also feature a cupped end to improve balance and ensure a higher density piece of wood. Furthermore, the MLB Prime wood baseball bats are graded for quality at six different stages from the time the tree is cut until the bat is finished, including the final step - the ink dot slope of grain test for MLB approval.

The 2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime C271 Hornsby Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPB271A16 Adult features the C271 turning model. The C271 is the most popular choice at the Major League level and is the standard that is used for all medium barrel turning models. It all begins with Louisville Slugger's densest starting billet that provides dependable hardness and exceptional durability. A medium barrel, a standard handle, and the max knob taper offer the ultimate feel that contributes to both power hitters and contact hitters alike. This version features a more balanced swing weight and the Hornsby high-gloss finish. Louisville Slugger: It's In Your Hands! Buy yours today with fast, free shipping!
