EKO Composite Barrel

When you square up a ball with the Meta Prime, you’ll feel and hear the difference. Thanks to an extra half-inch length on the barrel design, you get a bigger sweet spot and unmatched sound on contact.

3FX Connection System

Elite BBCOR players want a stiffer connection in their bats for better energy transfer. Our new 3FX Connection allows us to fine tune the stiffness on both the inside and outside of the connection to provide players with a ‘stiff’ feel on contact while dramatically reducing vibration.

RTX End Cap

Our RTX End Cap design allows for our largest BBCOR barrel size, meaning you get a bigger sweet spot to put to work in big moments.

Meta Baseball Bat | Swing Weight | Louisville Slugger

Swing Weight

The Meta Prime features a Mass Index that ranges from 730 on the 31” model to 1040 on the 34”, these numbers equate to a specific swing weight “feel” when a hitter swings the bat. The lower the number is on the scale, the more balanced or lighter swinging “feel” the bat will have. Conversely, the higher the number the more “loaded” the swing will feel as the bat generates more momentum. Generally, an elite hitter will feel a difference in the swing weight for every 20 points on this scale. Compare and contrast the Mass Index scores across multiple bats to find your length, model and the bat the truly fits your game.
