Comparable Bats

Compared to the 915 Prime and the 715 Select the 515 Omaha does have a lighter swing. When we measured it was a good 10% lighter.

Slugger resurrected the Omaha name after a year in hiatus to take on the full aluminum line in the top shelf series of bats. The 515 ST+20 alloy is a know commodity that is durable and has good pop out of the wrapper.  We suspect the 515, with its affordable price point, will be the best selling bat in the Slugger series this year.

Previous Bats

In a move that gets high marks from us, since its partly our job to keep track of all these bat names, they have put some thinking behind the bats title: 515 Omaha. The 5 refers to the same series of gear that Slugger makes (Series 5). The 15 is the release model year: 2015. The Omaha refers to the age old ST+20 one piece aluminum bat that Slugger has been making for years. It might sound like a silly thing, but the names that are actually informative to the consumers, in our opinion, are a step in the right direction.
