2022 LOUISVILLE SLUGGER META -8 BAT
A bat built to run this game. Just like you. Introducing the all-new Meta Fastpitch Bat from Louisville Slugger. It features a revolutionary patent pending cantilevered gapped barrel design that maximizes performance and expands the sweet spot of the bat. The low compression barrel design and unmatched feel went through years of playtesting with elite talent. The end result? A cutting-edge high performer that’s ready to go as soon as you unwrap it.
BARREL: Our MASH™ Composite works perfectly with our innovative gapped wall design to immediately and continually maximize performance. Unlike other gapped wall bats, our cantilevered inner barrel is not connected at the end cap, allowing it to translate on impact. The result is incredible performance along the entire barrel and a unique sound that cannot be ignored.
CONSTRUCTION: A two-piece design featuring our VTX™ Connection System, which allows for more independent movement between the barrel and handle. This provides a best-in-class feel with less vibration on every swing – something players have come to expect in every Louisville Slugger bat.
END CAP: The all-new F2X™ Performance End Cap maximizes the barrel profile, bat control and swing speed. Its completely transparent design is a first in fastpitch and the perfect finishing touch on a bat built for elite talent.
SWING WEIGHT: The Meta showcases the perfect combination of an easy-swinging profile with just a touch of added weight toward the end of the barrel, helping players of all types and experience levels deliver maximum pop.
PREMIUM LS PRO COMFORT GRIP: Designed to give players added tack and cushion, our Premium Pro Comfort Grip improves feel and bat control through the zone.
