MLB PRIME MAPLE C271 SPECS
The C271 is the most popular Louisville Slugger turning model at the Major League level and is the base model used to create all medium barrel turning models. The C271 uses our densest starting billet, giving this model consistent hardness. A standard handle, medium barrel and max knob taper create a versatile bat conducive to power hitters and contact hitters alike. It is a '1' (Most Balanced) on the Swing Weight Scale.
This model is made with Maple, which is the species preferred by more than 70 percent of Major League players. Maple bats are known for their surface hardness, unmatched sound and solid feel upon contact. The closed grain structure of the Maple wood lends itself to a more durable surface strength and stiffer feel.
