From Louisville Slugger's range of Prime wood baseball bats - the 'Drip' maple bat.
Each bat from the Prime range comes with a pristine look, offers premium pop on contact, and provides one of the hardest hitting barrels in baseball. Louisville continues to re-design their bats year on year and the latest development for is the all new 'EXOPRO' Finish.
The 'EXOPRO' finish is twice as hard as the previous 'Exo Armor' seen on the previous models. This innovation in wood bat technology gives you a finish you can feel in an incredibly durable top coat that not only drastically increases surface hardness, but gives a mirror-like finish in high glosss models.
The latest developments don't stop there - with the all new Craftsman-style cup. This completely re-engineered style features a thicker width edge along the end of the barrel, lending added strength and durability to the end of the bat to help reduce chipping and cracking.
Following the success of last years new Seamless decals these return. With branding that blends into the pro grade wood with perfect precision; there's no added stress, pressure or heat applied during the manufacture ensuring each bat is made from wood in its purest form.
To earn the title as the 'Official Bat of Major League Baseball' all bats within the Prime range include the ink dot certification below the barrel to prove the slope-of-grain required for MLB approval.
The 'Drip' model features a I13 turning model that provides a slightly end loaded balanced swing weight available with an approximate length to weight ratio of -3. With a large size barrel, standard handle and slightly flared knob the model is primarily suited for contact hitters.
