Louisville Slugger has been innovating for years with its Exogrid baseball bat.
Way back in the day, the Exogrid changed the game with its ultra-stiff composite handle. It has evolved over the years, from balance tweaks to extra air bladders.
It has all led up to the 2013 Exogrid3, the Exo for the BBCOR era.
This baseball bat features the same one-piece hybrid construction, including LS2X carbon inserts in the handle and AC21 Scandium in the barrel. The Exogrid3 takes it to the next level with Flex Band Technology.
The switch to BBCOR forced many manufacturers to thicken the metal in their barrels to bring their bats in line with BBCOR.
Instead, the folks at Slugger placed a band of lightweight graphite in the barrel. That allowed them to balance most of the bat’s weight in its handle, giving you one of the lightest swing weights on the market.
The Exogrid3 retails for $299.99. Get it at Baseball Express.

If you have played baseball at all over the last decade or so, you’re probably familiar with Louisville Slugger’s Omaha baseball bat.
It’s the one with the all-alloy construction, fine-tuned for superb performance at a great price.
All that is included in the 2013 edition of the Omaha, with a few new tweaks. The 2013 Omaha is balanced with the center of mass in the handle, giving you one of the lightest swing weights on the market.
That’ll help you get more speed on your swing and more power behind the ball.
Add to that the new Omaha flex band, which works to minimize vibrations and send all of that energy transfer into the ball — and not your hands.
Get one for $199.99 at Baseball Express.

Easton’s Power Brigade lineup of BBCOR certified baseball bats is still relatively new to our shelves, but it’s already making plenty of waves.
Thanks to its series of baseball bats tailored to each player’s specific hitting style — from pure power to contact hitters — the Power Brigade is gaining a following in everything from travel leagues to college baseball. And its newest addition is sure to gain even more fans.
Easton’s 2012 Speed S4 -3 Adult BBCOR Baseball Bat is fine-tuned to have one of the lowest MOIs on the market. It’s constructed with an ultra-light swing weight for more bat speed, allowing players to hit with more power in every at-bat.
The S4 is a one-piece bat made with Easton’s proprietary THT100 Scandium Alloy. That construction has allowed the engineers at Easton to produce a high-performance baseball bat while keeping production costs low.
That means you can get it for $199.99 at Baseball Express.
