2022 Prime Models

Models Overview

The 2022 Louisivlle Slugger Prime is ONLY in USA version this year. If you are looking for the 2022 Louisivlle Slugger PRIME in BBCOR or USSSA versions then you are out of luck. But, the good news, the 2021/2020 version of the Prime are still widely available.

General Recommendations

The 2022 Prime in USA is built for the hitter which needs as much plage coverage in a good feeling bat as possible. In most cases, that entails a lot of different hitters in the USA space. AS they get bigger and stronger it is unlikely the Prime makes the most sense. But as a good to great performance bat for the serious travel ball player who is small to average-sized this bat should serve well.

Reviews By Model

Comparable Bats

Comparable bats in the US space are the 2022 DeMarini CF in USA and the 2022 Axe Avenge. Almost any two-piece composite bat in the USA space is built with the same type of hitter in mind as the Prime caters to.

Previous Bats

There are no changes from the 2019/20 version of the USA Louisville Slugger Prime to this year. The bat hasn’t changed much over the last few years as the focus is more on the Meta for slugger than it is the Prime. But, still, the bat is good.


The 2022 Prime is a two-piece composite bat built with a big barrel and a light swing.
