Aluminum & Composite Bats


There’s nothing like choosing a new bat. Years of innovation and technological advancements have culminated in our most high-performing alloy and composite bats ever. Regardless of which you’d prefer, Louisville Slugger offers both power and contact hitters alike multiple options.

What’s the difference between aluminum and composite baseball bats? Composite bats are made with a layered material that is easy to distribute, meaning we can easily shift where the weight of a bat sits. These often have a larger, more forgiving sweet spot than their aluminum counterparts and reduced vibration on mis-hit balls helps minimize the sting in your hands. Meanwhile, alloy bats are made of a mixture of metals and have been used in baseball for years. They often have a much stiffer feel and are more durable than composite models.

Louisville Slugger has three dedicated baseball bat lineups: BBCOR, USSSA or Senior League and USA Baseball. Building on the legacy of Louisville Slugger’s best performing models, Slugger’s 2021 BBCOR bats feature an AVC Microform Composite barrel has been engineered for the maximum sweet spot possible. A three-piece design features a VCX™ Vibration Control Connection System with independent movement between the barrel and the handle to control vibration.
