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.
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.
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.
Built for the ultimate balance of speed and power, the 2022 Prime (-10) USA Baseball Bat from Louisville Slugger boasts a premium AVC MicroForm™ Composite Barrel with an optimized sweet spot for maximum plate coverage. Prime’s three-piece construction centers around the VCX2™ Vibration Control Connection System, which works to minimize vibration and deliver an unrivaled feel on contact. The balanced swing weight offers young USA Baseball players the perfect blend of speed and power, and the lightweight RTX™ end cap maximizes barrel length and performance.
