2012 Louisville Slugger Catalyst Fastpitch Softball Bat
From the earliest days of the game, Louisville Slugger has always employed the most powerful technology available in the bat business. Back in the days of Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth, that meant having the most skilled craftsmen at the lathe, handcrafting bats to the most demanding specifications of the world’s most demanding players. Today, it means applying the latest aerospace technology to bat making, delivering high-tech aluminum, hybrid and composite bats that give new meaning to the word “performance.”
The Swing1 inner Disc (S1iD) Barrel Technology allows the barrel to flex to its maximum allowable performance level from SWING1. This bat is “Game Ready” from the time you take off the wrapper. The two inner discs are positioned inside the barrel at the sweet spot to stop the barrel from flexing past the performance limit, giving players maximum allowable performance. Precise positioning of iD within the barrel also allows us to bring up the performance around the sweet spot – which means you get a larger performing sweet spot, not just a better feeling one.
Louisville Sluggers LS-2X Composite technology brings new thinner high-strength and lightweight graphite fibers that allow them to reduce the wall thickness, creating better performance while maintaining durability. Thinner fibers allow use of more layers in the barrel for added strength, but with an overall wall that is thinner.
