The 2021 Louisville Slugger Meta -3 BBCOR baseball bat has an all new look and feel. Still balanced, but the sound is noticeable different with around the same swing weight as last years. These bats test around 200 points higher than the preceding Meta model do stock, however, shaved is a totally different story. Performance is about just as good as a 2019 or 2020 Meta is shaved as well. Suggested shave spec is level 2 which will completely remove the slope in the step barrel. Level 3 is to much of a shave if you want any durability. Don't be surprised if you see 40-50ft on these models from the shave
** THERE IS A CHANCE SOME DISCLORATION OR THE CLEAR WILL PEEL AT THE END OF THIS BAT. THIS IS RARE, BUT IT IS A POSSIBILITY. WE DO NOT KNOW IF IT WILL HAPPEN UNTIL IT HAPPENS. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO RUN THE RISK OF THIS HAPPENING, THE END CAP WILL HAVE TO BE DRILLED AND REPLACED. END CAPS ARE FACTORY CAPS AND $45 ADDITIONAL. GIVE US A CALL AND WE WILL HAVE TO ADD AN END CAP TO YOUR ORDER. IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO REPLACE THE CAP AND SOME DISCLOLORATION OR PEELING HAPPENS, PICK UP A CAN OF 3M SUPER 77 SPRAY GLUE FROM HOME DEPOT AND SPRAY DOWN THE BARREL. IT WILL HIDE ANY IMPERFECTIONS ON THE BARREL. **
