Louisville Slugger Meta -8 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2496010
Say “hello” to the drop 8 Louisville Slugger Meta Fastpitch bat. This bat has been waiting to feast on fastpitch pitching for a few years now!
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.
If you have a player that is well advanced in their ability to handle a fastpitch bat, then this drop 8 bat should be considered. The weighting of the bat will be balanced and could benefit both power and contact hitters who can handle a little heavier drop size.
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.
