The 2022 Louisville Slugger Meta -5 USSSA baseball bat is one bad bat. Has a balanced swing weight with a soft feel and it mashes. Overall, a very solid bat which is hot and durable. Our suggested shave spec is level 2. If you want to push it and see how far it can really go, level 3 is insane, however, there will be noticeable durability loss.
