The Firestix brings the heat. 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. This model features a deep red finish from knob to barrel, coupled with black Seamless Decals. 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.
