Louisville Prime 917 2-5/8" Big Barrel USSSA Bat -10oz (2017)
MAD MAX says:
I cannot describe how popular the 916 was last year. It was a bat that we could not get enough of. The 917 looks to be that same bat but better! The 917 will be a three-piece, all-composite bat. A very balanced bat with ton's of pop. Louisville uses their top notch composite in this bat to create their highest-performing bat in years. As great as the 916 was last year they improved the 917 this year. The 916 had some durability issues. The barrel seemed to separate from the handle, and the bat had a lot of flex to it because of the TRU-3 Piece technology. Louisville fixed that problem. There will be no issues with that this year as they have stiffened the bat up. The grip on the 916 was also rushed, and the rubber piece underneath made the grip pop no matter a righty or lefty. Louisville hooked up with Lizard skin to create a custom grip that was put on a lot better than last year's model. I don't know how you make last year's top bat better, but Louisville did and watch out for big things this year. This model is the -10 2-5/8 bat, great for a travel/club baseball player.
