Hey whats up guys, its Chris with another review on another version of the 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta.
I’ve been pretty excited about the release of this baseball bat because of how big of a Louisville fan I am. They are like the core of American baseball bats.
When I was in little league I got my first Louisville bat and I fell in love. I don’t remember the exact model but I’ll get back to you guys on that haha.
Also when I started doing travel ball I used a Louisville maple bat since it was a wood bat league. I still remember how smooth it felt to knock it right on the sweet spot. Nothing has changed since.
So for this bat, I went down to my local baseball shop and they let me test it out a little. A couple of cuts were taken, some inspecting was done, and a lot of information was gained.
Keep reading for my review on the 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta.
2020 Louisville Slugger Meta
Here’s a little summary of the bat and its features.
The Louisville Slugger Meta is a BBCOR certified bat which means that most if not all leagues will allow you to play with it. In the barrel, we have a composite structure which they deemed the name EKO. (Not exactly sure what EKO stands for.)
All I know is that the barrel is a nice size and feels pretty light through the zone.
The RTX end cap (again I have no idea what that stands for) gives this bat a more balanced feel to it.
Connecting the pieces of the bat is the 3FX connection system that gives the contact a tighter feel if you can imagine that. When using some other composite bats you can almost feel the flex that happens. When using the Louisville Slugger Meta that isn’t really the case. It feels like it holds itself together a little more which I like.
To describe the feel of this bat through the zone, the words I would use are balanced, quick, and powerful.
It is a great balance between speed and power but leans a little more towards speed. Usually, when the barrels are kinda meaty like this one, they feel a little lighter because you would expect a heavier feel which is not the case with the Louisville Slugger Meta.
As you guys may know, they do have a past version of this bat in 2019.
I used it a little bit and reviewed it briefly but as far as I can tell they’re very much alike.
If you have the 2019 version of the Louisville Slugger Meta I do recommend that you upgrade because it is always good to have the best version of a product in case there were some issues solved with it. Is it necessary to upgrade? In some cases no.
From what I can tell about the 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta baseball bat, it is going to be one of the best bats this year.
When taking some cuts I could tell that it was quick, sturdy, and reliable.
The barrel is huge and feels amazing through the zone. Also, you guys might know that I am a fan of composite baseball bats which makes me like it even more.
