2017 Louisville Slugger PRIME 917 (-8)
The brand that offered the #1 BAT IN 2016 has some new innovations that will continue to separate it from our competitors. Louisville excels in engineering bat components that make it a cut above the rest!
DROP (-8) PRIME 917: The Prime Drop (-8) was a huge success in 2016, but we haven’t been idle. Upcoming improvements include Microform Composite and an improved Tru3 connection. Last year, 87% of hitters chose Prime 916 over Mako. And this year, 85% of hitters chose the new Prime 917 over last year’s 916.
- Microform composite adds more layers of composite to barrel. The result is a larger sweetspot.
- Tru3 improvements include extending the length of the handle, extending the inner rubber cone, and polishing the socket. The result is a connection that is more durable and secure, superior feel, maximum vibration reduction, and better energy transfer.
- The Tru3 socket is different than everything else on the market and is the heart and soul of how the Prime bat works. But it feels and sounds different, spurring players to be concerned about how the connection moves. Only 1% of 916s were defective. The socket is designed to move some.
- Custom Lizard Skin grip
- 2-5/8" Barrel
