Uncovering the Louisville Slugger Genesis Everett Williams Best-Selling Slowpitch Softball Bat
In softball as in so many other areas of life, money talks. Players vote with their wallets as well as their voices, and they’re in accord on this one. The new-for-2022 Louisville Slugger Genesis Everett Williams is already one of the hottest slowpitch softball bats of the year, and already a best-seller here at HB Sports.
But what makes it so great? Is it the hot, electric styling (partly, of course) or is it the features?
Let’s see what makes this slowpitch softball bat such a hit amongst so many players.
Overview: Louisville Slugger Genesis Everett Williams Slowpitch Softball Bat
The LS Genesis Everett Williams slow pitch softball bat is approved for USSSA, NSA, and ISA leagues and tournaments. Specifically, it’s approved for all USSSA 240 NTS leagues and tournaments (it comes with a new 240 NTS USSSA Stamp).
It’s 34” long with a huge 13” barrel that 2 ¼” wide. It’s available in weights from 25 to 27 ounces, giving it a healthy weight drop for end-loaded performance that power hitters will (and do) love.
It also comes with a 12-month manufacturer warranty, but these are just some fast specifications. What are the nitty-gritty details that make this slowpitch softball bat a heavy hitter (pun intended)?
Accelerated Break-in and Advanced Composite Materials
Everyone knows that composite barrels with unique, proprietary fiber interlaying offer nearly unprecedented compressibility for unheard of trampoline effect, a bigger pop, and larger, more forgiving sweet spots.
Everyone also knows that CF barrels need to be broken in before offering peak performance - but the LS Genesis Everett Williams slowpitch bat is made with an LS-2X composite barrel.
What does that mean? It means that the barrel comes ready for accelerated break-in so you can enjoy hotter-hitting performance sooner after taking the bat out of the wrapper.
Control and Comfort in the LS Pyramid Grip
This new slowpitch bat also makes use of the LS Pyramid Grip, an unassuming little stepped group that goes over the knob and increases handling, control, and comfort through the swing.
The steps cut into the grip give players unprecedented sensitivity and control, making it easy to exhibit precise handling through the swing. It also is a much more ergonomic grip; players have reported that they can drop their pinky down a step for greater comfort without compromising on control.
High Compression and Energy Transfer
Another gem of engineering is this new slowpitch bat’s Copa end cap. Even though the barrel and its features get the lion’s share of the credit for performance, never overlook an end cap. A model like this one can make a big difference.
It all comes down to compressibility and energy storage in this case. The Copa End Cap, featured here on the Genesis Everett Williams slowpitch softball bat, improves the compressibility of a composite barrel that’s already engineered for compressibility and energy transfer.
The result is a bat that loads and releases energy like a firecracker. Paired with higher bat speeds and a huge sweet spot, this is a collection of features that power hitters simply cannot get enough of - and they keep coming back to it time and time again.
Kill Bad Vibes, Keep Sensitivity High
The Genesis Everett Williams features a QWK Connection between the barrel and handle, which accomplishes a very important objective.
One, it creates a sound joint for maximum stiffness and energy transfer which also allows for excellent sensitivity, which can be hard to pull off with a multi-piece bat.
But the best thing about it is that it cuts back on unwanted, painful vibrations and negative feedback. A slight mishit is no problem with this new Louisville Slugger USSSA slowpitch softball bat. Greater comfort, less painful negative feedback, and impressive sensitivity are within reach.
End-Loaded for Maximum Power
This slowpitch softball bat may be engineering for smooth swing weighting and responsive handling, but it’s not what we’d call balanced. In fact, it carries a half-ounce end load for power-hitting performance.
It’s been a hit among softball players but even more so among power hitters, who love its huge barrel, sweet spot, sped-up break-in, superior handling, and most importantly, its super adequate end load.
Killer Looks, Killer Performance
This bat is clearly a big plus for power hitters with higher swing speeds and it's one of the top-selling Louisville Sluggers on our website. In fact, it’s one of our best-selling slowpitch softball bats, period.
