2021 Louisville Slugger Solo

By Bat Digest | Last Updated November 21, 2020

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.

2021 Louisville Slugger Solo Review

Overall Solo Line Review

Our hitters like the light swing, big barrel, and solid performance of the 2021 Louisville Slugger Solo. In BBCOR, smaller players looking for as much bat speed as possible but are also comfortable enough with their skills to prefer single piece bats liked the Solo a lot. For USSSA, the drop 5 was preferred more than the other versions for bigger hitters. Most smaller players preferred the lighter swing of two-piece composite bats like the Meta or CF, but did just fine when it comes to exit speeds with the Solo.

2021 Louisville Slugger Solo Model Tips

We recommend the Solo for the hitters who prefer single piece bats with a light swing. The bat is in the bottom 10% for swing weight. Meaning, for its given length, the bat swings light because the distribution of the weight is in the handle. It works well for hitters who need as much bat speed as possible and is comfortable with the feedback associated with a single piece bat.

We think previous versions of the bat are as good as this 2021 iteration. We think the 31 through 34-inch  BBCOR might be the most noticeable differences year over year, but not sure if that will justify any considerable price differences between the two.

2021 Louisville Slugger Solo Review

The 2021 BBCOR Solo is built for the base hitter type that likes the feel of a single piece alloy bat. No work-in is required on alloy so you can expect it to be as hot as it will ever be. The bat swings light has a good feel on hits and mishits and hit the ball as fast as any BBCOR bat can. The very small BBCOR player will appreciate the 29-inch BBCOR. That 29-inch version is the lightest swinging BBCOR bat on the market for 2021.

2021 Louisville Slugger Solo Review

The drop 5, 8, and 10 USSSA bat all have a bit different experience. Players looking for as much bat speed as possible will like the drop 10---assuming they are fine with more feedback on the hands due to its single-piece construction. The drop 8 is a smart choice for that player trying to get rid of some hand sting and can swing a big enough bat to justify the drop 8. The drop 5 USSSA Slugger Solo is a rock star for the hitter who likes a stiff feel and needs a balanced drop 5 bats (many leagues require a drop 5, and those who want a light swing that category will really like the Solo).
