The Louisville Slugger Solo is a single-piece aluminum bat with a light swing made possible by its variable wall thickness and extended composite end cap. We’ve reviewed it since its release several years back. You can find those below.

2021 Louisville Slugger Solo

$299.95
(8.4)

The 2021 Louisville Slugger Solo is a light swinging single piece aluminum bat made for the performance BBCOR and USSSA space. There is no 2021 version for USA. The major changes are the re-engineered barrel design of the 31 through 34-inch BBCOR and new end cap to help bring down swing weight in the USSSA versions.

2020 Louisville Slugger Solo

$299.95
(8.4)

2020 Louisville Slugger Solo Review: Light, Value, Good Performance. After hitting each 2020 Solo with several different hitters, it rates out as well as the 2019 version did. That is, a very durable bat that perfectly serves the need of a budget conscience buyer who needs a light swing. The BBCOR Solo has many fans and the 29-inch is a hit for those who needs it ultra-light. The USA is our favorite Solo. The drop 11 creates as good as exit speeds as any. USSSA Solo’s aren’t as popular as composite barrels do better there. Our Score 9/10 (BBCOR); 9.8/10 (USA); 8.5/10 (USSSA).
