2022 Louisville Slugger Prime USA Drop 10

The 2022 Louisville Slugger Prime in USA is a drop 10 with a good barrel profile and middle-of-the-road swing weight. Overshadowed by more popular bats like the ADV, the Slugger Prime is an under-the-radar pick that gets great feedback, hits the ball hard and has a really good feel on both hits and mishits. Made for the kid who plays a lot of baseballs we think it is an underrated pick in the 2022 USA space. (And we also think its graphics are the best of the year).
