At Louisville Slugger, we believe players of all ages deserve quality wood bats. The PRIME Youth Y271 turning model is our lightest and most balanced youth model to-date. Made from maple, our most popular species of wood, offers higher density and hardness on contact. This variation features a Matte Black finish coupled with Matte Silver branding. All PRIME Youth bats feature Louisville Slugger’s EXOARMOR, a state-of-the-art finish that gives an added hardness to the bat you can feel and hear with every swing.
