Introducing the 2023 Louisville Slugger Select PWR Baseball Bat!
The 2023 Louisville Slugger Select PWR Baseball Bat is the latest addition to the Louisville Slugger bat line for the 2023 season. This bat is a high-performance option designed to give hitters a competitive advantage on the field. In this blog, we will discuss the features and benefits of the new Louisville Slugger Select PWR Baseball Bat.
The three-piece design is made up of a composite handle, an alloy barrel, and the VXC2 Vibration Control Connection Piece (For BBCOR, the 3FX-PWR Connection Piece is used) in between providing unmatched comfort without sacrificing stiffness for better energy transfer. The barrel is designed with EXD premium alloy, which creates a more durable and responsive barrel as well as increased barrel and sweet spot size.
The 2023 Louisville Slugger Select PWR Baseball Bat is designed with a balanced swing weight. The BBCOR model has a power swing weight that is achieved by placing more weight towards the end of the barrel, which helps create a more fluid swing. This weight distribution allows for more mass in the barrel, giving hitters more power behind their swing. This weight distribution also makes the bat more balanced, making it easier for the hitter to control the bat and make solid contact with the ball.
Another key feature of the Louisville Slugger Select PWR Baseball Bat is the SBD-Gen2 end cap. The SBD-Gen2 end cap is designed to increase the bat's swing speed as well as maximizing the barrel’s performance. The end cap also helps to reduce vibration upon contact, making it more comfortable for the hitter. The SBD-Gen2 end cap is made of a lightweight material, which helps to redistribute weight towards the end of the bat, creating a more fluid swing.
