The best players in the game deserve only the highest grade wood available. That's why Slugger hand selects only the best quality wood on the market, which we call MLB Primer Veneer.
Cut to be harder, the techniques of Amish craftsmanship, square billets and hand sawing, are combined with advanced vacuum drying chambers to form the foundation for the hardest bat you can swing.
360 Degree Compression
Our exclusive machine compression process is far more consistent, guaranteeing 360 degrees of hardness and no soft spots. The new compression process makes a harder, more durable bat and makes bone rubbing a thing of the past.
Advanced Finish System
MLB Prime bats include a new, innovative finishing system. The filler fills all grains and cavities for a harder feel and appearance. Then the three layers of topcoat seal the bat and give it the hardest finish of any wood bat on the market. MLB Prime bats are 9H rated - the highest rating available on the 21 level universal hardness scale!
Louisville Slugger MLB Prime WBVA14-43CNA Pro Ash Wood Baseball Bat - New for 2014
Strong timber, lighter weight. Pound per pound, ash is the strongest timber available. Ash has a flexibility that isn't found in other timber like maple. It tends to flex rather than break. This give you a larger, more forgiving sweet spot in terms of breakage. Ash is lighter than maple, giving you a wider range of large barrel models. Even though ash is extremely durable, it tends to flake or delaminate after extensive use
