2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 Youth Bat Review



SUMMARY: As the inaugural season of the USA Bat Standard came to a close, Louisville Sluggers’ Select 718 proved to be one of the highest performing USA bats around the country. The 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 USA Bat will not only meet the performance standards set by last year’s edition, but will undoubtedly exceed expectations with all the upgraded innovative inclusions featured in this year’s model. The Select 719 utilizes a strong and stable 3-piece hybrid construction with a genuinely balanced swing weight from knob to end cap. The 2 5/8 barrel houses Louisville’s patented ST 7U1+ alloy material giving youth hitters a magnified sweet spot and the maximized amount of pop potential allowed under the USA Bat Standard. Conjoining the alloy barrel and 100% composite handle is Louisville’s new VCX Technology which replaces the TRU3 connection from last year’s version. The VCX connection decreases more shock vibration vs the TRU3 as well as providing each player with an unmatched stiff feel upon contact customized for each type of youth hitter (contact, complete or a power hitter). Sitting atop the barrel is a newly improved Speed Ballistic Composite End Cap that creates quicker bat speeds without surrendering any control required for achieving level swings. Lastly, the 100% composite handle comes prewrapped with a state-of-the-art Pro Comfort Grip Tape that administers extra cushion upon the hands giving young sluggers more confidence to swing hard through the strike zone. The 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 USA Bat encompasses a uniquely structured design that can accommodate any type of youth hitter. No matter if your player is looking for power or contact, the Select 719 will bring about quality high performance results.
