Louisville Slugger Prime C243 Maple Wood Bat


Louisville Slugger Prime C243 Maple Wood Bat

Louisville Slugger Prime C243 maple wood bats are made in this variation with a natural/black finish. As aluminum bats became a part of the game, the demand for large-barreled, thin-handled bats led to the popularity of the C243. Every large barrel turning model since has been a slight modification from this model. All MLB Prime bats - made exclusively with MLB grade wood, a standard met by only 3% of our wood - now feature EXOARMOR, a revolutionary finish that is twice the hardness of a regular bat.


  • MLB grade wood comes from only the top 3% of Louisville Slugger's wood
  • Cupped end to improve balance and ensure a higher density piece of wood
  • EXOARMOR finish is twice the hardness of a regular bat
  • MLB approved: Pro Ink Dot certified for slope of grain
  • Bone rubbed to close pores and make wood harder
  • Slightly end loaded for more power
  • Large barrel, standard handle
  • Weight: (-1) to (-3) oz. drop
