Louisville Slugger Meta bats have been successful in baseball over the years, and the new 2023 batch is out with only a slight upgrade to the 2022 model.
The bat has a balanced weight, swings lightly, and gives a comfortable in-hand feel to the young baseballers playing with the bat.
The bat is expensive, but you won't mind spending on it for the quality and performance it has to compete with Marucci CATX Composite and Demarini CF bats.
Louisville Slugger’s meta-series has been performing well for years and has been one of the best three-piece composite bbcor bats.
