2022 Louisville Slugger Select PWR Review

By Bat Digest | Last Updated March 3, 2022

The 2022 Louisville Slugger Select PWR is a BBCOR only bat for 2022. It’s an endloaded hybrid built for big hitters who want a big time bat but aren’t interested in the hype surrounding The Goods. The Select goes toe to toe with any bat on the market. If you can swing it then it’s a great pick. That said, the 2020 and 2021 versions of the bat are exactly the same, so if you can find those in stock then go that route.

The 2022 Slugger Select PWR hasn’t changed since it’s 2020 version, but that doesn’t matter because it is fantastic. You’ll find, even today, kids at all upper levels of the sport crushing balls. In a world where bats like The Goods and Voodoo get all the love, a good hard look at the 2022 PWR Select from Slugger for that stronger upperclass man can be a real steal.

Construction

The 2022 Slugger Select PWR is a two piece bat with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The connection piece in the middle is relatively stiff compared to bats like the CF or Quatro Pro, but about the same as bats like the Goods or HZRDUS. The bat is referred to as a Hybrid and comes only comes in an endloaded (PWR) version.

Overall Ratings Key

To keep consistent ratings across years, models and brands, we’ve devloped an aggregated rating system using 6 categories. As well, we track swing weight (MOI), stiffness and profile although they do not affect the overall score directly. The explanation of each rating is below.

  1. MOI: is the swing weight accurately measured at our bat lab. We score it 1 through 5. No score is better than another. This is a descriptive value. A lower number (1) represents a light swinging bat for its class, while a higher number (5) represents an endloaded bat.
  2. Tech: The tech advancements in the bat are 5% of its overall score. We award points for innovation even if the invention encourages the industry to try new things.
  3. Durability: The bat’s lifespan is rated at 15% of the overall score. We gather this information almost exclusively from the user and player feedback. More reports of a bat breaking then the lower the score.
  4. Stiffness: Stiffness is not counted towards the overall score since it’s a complete preference. The higher the number, the stiffer the bat, the lower the number, the more flex in the bat directly after contact. This is significantly correlated to how good a bat feels on mishits and hits.
  5. Profile: The profile does not count towards the overall score. However, we do track it. A high number means the bat has an extensive profile, and a lower number means it has a small profile.
  6. Resell: We count the secondary market of a used value of the bat as 10% of the overall score. We think the demand for the bat in the secondary market (eBay and SidelineSwap) are a good indicator of how well the bat is perceived to perform. It also shows a more excellent value for the owner as their bat retains more value and no longer becomes valuable to them.
  7. Rating: This is the player rating and represents 25% of the overall score. These are gathered from our hitters and reviews we find online and those we have contact with from other reputable sources.
  8. EV: Exit Velocity is the rankings we create in our exit speed velocity tests every year on bats. This score represents 25% of the overall score.
  9. Relevance: Relevance measures how applicable and available a bat is for consumers. The broader range of sizes and the more appropriate the swing weight for the masses then, the higher the score. This metric accounts for 20% of the overall score.
