2016 Louisville 916 -3 BBCOR
Maximum SPEED - Extreme POWER - Ultimate BALANCE : The Louisville Slugger Prime 916 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBP9163 is here! With the introduction of their 2016 bat line, players around the nation are finding out why more Top 25 teams in NCAA baseball step into the box with a Louisville Slugger in their hands. Slugger made waves in the market with a never-before-seen 3-Piece bat construction, but the TRU3 Dynamic Socket Connection allows for slight movement between the barrel and handle to further maximize barrel trampoline effect and eliminate negative vibration. Combine that with the newly created FCS (Fused Carbon Structure) Composite and Flex Band Technology, the Prime 916 showcases the lightest swing weight and largest sweet spot in the 2016 Slugger lineup. This BBCOR certified model features the Flex Band Technology in its barrel. By inserting a 1" composite disc right below the sweet spot, the team in Louisville is able to meet BBCOR standards while keeping the barrel walls as thin as possible. Thinner barrel walls results in a lighter feel, larger sweet spot, and maximum trampoline effect on contact. Doesn't sound too bad, right?
