2015 Louisville Slugger 915 Prime Review

The 2015 Louisville Slugger 915 NCAA bat is now released and we think it will be a smashing (waka waka) success this year.

Comparable Bats

For 2015 there are really only two other two piece composite bats. That is the Easton Mako and DeMarini’s CF7. Time has proven the CF7 to be the far and away winner in the USSSA space. Both the Mako and the CF7 were fantastic BBCOR bats too. The 915, at this point in its existence, was just a wee lad fighting for scraps. Today, with its 919 Prime, it is officially a big boy.

Previous Bats

First, it is an updated version of the 2014 Attack–which we thought was the best bat Slugger had made to date. If it turns out to be a real improvement it will, indeed, be the best bat they’ve ever made. Based on feedback from elite travel ball players about the 2014 Attack, Slugger tightened up the connective piece between the composite barrel and handle. As well, the 915 has some improved durability at the Tru3 connective piece when compared to the 2014 Attack. This should give players a bit better feel through contact.

Construction

The 915 Prime is a two piece composite bat with a Tru3 connective piece. This is the same connective piece they used on the 2014 Attack (which we actually really liked). Expect a pretty good feel at contact and a light swing. Durability at the connection point got this bat a few bad ratings online. But, on the whole, especially for the prices you can find it now, it is a steal.
