The Baseball Bat Bros bring you the showdown of Louisville Slugger's composite 2020 BBCOR bats: the Meta and the Prime!

BREAKING:
AS OF 3/2/2020, THE 33" VERSION OF THE 2020 META HAS BEEN BANNED FROM ALL BBCOR PLAY - INCLUDING HIGH SCHOOL & NCAA.

THIS REVIEW VIDEO FEATURES A 32" META - WHICH REMAINS BBCOR APPROVED IN NCAA AND HIGH SCHOOL.

33" ALTERNATE BBCOR BAT RECOMMENDATIONS:
WITH THE 33" META BEING BANNED, WE THINK THAT THE BEST COMPOSITE ALTERNATIVES ARE:
1) 32" OR 34" META
2) 33" META PWR (ENDLOADED VERSION OF THE META)
3) 33" EASTON ADV 360 (PRETTY SIMILAR SWING WEIGHT)
4) 33" DEMARINI CF (SWINGS A BIT LIGHTER)

These bats share a similar design in that they're both 2-piece composite bats, but they have some slight differences:

Louisville Slugger Prime
-Slightly endloaded
-2-piece composite
-Stiff Flex
-Thud sound
-Decent sweet spot
-Pretty good pop for a composite
-$450

Louisville Slugger Meta
-33" version is banned from BBCOR - only 31/32/34 are legal
-Balanced & light-swinging
-2-piece composite
-Stiff Flex
-Booming echo sound
-MASSIVE sweet spot
-Very good pop for a composite - but still not as much as some endloaded options like the Goods or Select Pwr or Meta Pwr.
-$500
