Cold, hard power. The C271 is Louisville Slugger’s most popular turning model at the Major League level and is the base model used to create all standard barrel turning models. The Blue Steel features a blended black and silver finish with blue Seamless Decals for a clean, commanding look. A standard handle, standard barrel and max knob taper, along with a balanced swing weight, allow this model to deliver for both contact and power hitters alike. All MLB PRIME bats are made exclusively with MLB-grade wood from the top 3% of the harvest and feature three coats of EXOARMOR, a state-of-the-art finish that gives a hardness to the bat you can feel and hear with every swing.
