2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Slowpitch Softball Bat ASA Balanced SBZ214-AB

2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Softball Bat Balanced ASA Slow Pitch

The freshly upgraded Balanced ASA version of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 softball bat is stronger and more durable than before. The Balanced Z2000 is easy to swing because of its smooth, evenly balanced weight distribution, plus it lets you producer a faster swing speed through the hitting zone than end loaded softball bats. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 comes in both an ASA, version and a USSSA version. Louisville Slugger softball bats have recently become some our best selling slow pitch softball bats. The 2014 Z2000 is very similar to the 2013 version, but upgraded for increased durability. The Z2000 softball bat has tons of pop, we can hardly keep these on the shelves.

Exclusive to the ASA Z2000 bats is the S1iD inner disc technology that allows the barrel to flex to barely legal limits, giving the barrel maximum trampoline effect, while staying just within the ASA softball bat standard. This means the ASA version of the Z2000 will be hot straight out of the wrapper with minimal break in time.

The Pure 360 composite is Louisville Slugger's best composite material for softball bats. The Pure 360 is stronger and lighter than previous years due to tightened production tolerances. 

2014 Z2000 Softball Bat Features:

  • Pure 360 composite barrel and handle
  • S1iD Inner Disc allows maximum legal barrel flex
  • iST technology
  • Balanced weight distribution for easy swinging
  • Synthetic grip, 7/8" standard handle
  • 12" pro style barrel offers a massive sweet spot
  • ASA Stamp, ISF approved
  • One Year Manufacturer's Warranty from Louisville Slugger Z2000 + No Hassle Returns

  • Cons: Not sure about the durability of the bat yet, only got to use it once. I hope it last much longer than my 2013 z2000

  • Pros: Having swung the original Z1000 and Z2000 bats, I was a bit skeptical about the 2014 Z2000 measuring up. The OG Z's were HOT and this one is right on par. If you can get used to the unusual sound on contact, then you'll be pleased with this one. The phrase 'Hot right out of the wrapper' is over-used in my opinion, but I can't think of a better description for this bat. I've been hitting p-rockets with this thing since the first pitch was thrown to me.
  • Cons: Don't really have any cons with only 100 swings, other than the unusual sound it makes on contact.

  • Is this bat in stock and ready to ship??????
  • Asked by Tonya on Friday 15 August, 2014
  • This bat is indeed in stock and ready to ship.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Got my Z2000 ASA, so far have liked but tends to have different sound than any other bat out there? Kind of a Ping sound, is this normal?
  • Asked by Josh on Monday 21 July, 2014
  • The Z series bats by Louisville Slugger do have an unusual sound compared to any other bat on the market. That has been one of the major factors in the Z series with their construction is the sound it makes when making contact. All is normal with your bat.

  • Just wondering if the warranty is thru Louisville slugger
  • Asked by ryan on Thursday 19 June, 2014
  • The one year manufacturer's warranty for the Louisville Slugger Z2000 will be through the manufacturer Louisville Slugger not the retailer. All bat warranties offered on our website are done through the manufacturer.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Can you guys do any better on the price? They are selling for $140-145 on ebay. Thanks, Kevin
  • Asked by Kevin on Tuesday 17 June, 2014
  • The price listed on our website will be the lowest price we can offer at this time.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • I understand there is a one year hassle free return policy. Can you confirm this? I would like to return this bat. If returned, is there a store credit issued or will there be a reverse on the charge on my cc
  • Asked by Steve Bimbo on Wednesday 30 April, 2014
  • This bat comes with a one year hassle free return policy when the bat is in new unused condition. A bat used may not be returned after 30 days. When a bat is returned it may be done so for a refund or an exchange.

  • What ist the BPF Rating of this bat? How do I get it certified my brand new bat was thrown out of my league because their was no rating printed on the barrel. They would not except the Asa stamp.
  • Asked by Steve on Thursday 24 April, 2014
  • This bat has the new ASA stamp on it. If your league will not accept an ASA stamp you need to find out what your league requirements are. If you league requires a BPF stamp on your bat of 1.20 and the USSSA thumb print stamp you will need the SBZ214-UB or SBZ214-UE.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • What is the difference between the z2000 and the z3000? I am not sure what one to buy. What would be the better bat?
  • Asked by ty on Monday 26 August, 2013
  • The Z2000 and Z3000 are very similar bats. The major difference is that the Z3000 uses a different method to connect the handle and the barrel. This 3 piece design is said to dramatically reduce vibration in the hands, and increase the durability of the bat. Both softball bats will use the new Louisville Slugger exclusive, Pure 360 composite.
  • Answered by Mike P. - Bat Expert
  • I was wondering if this is still pre-order only or if it is up for sale and ready to be shipped now? Seeing as there are reviews for the bat..
  • Asked by Brett on Tuesday 20 August, 2013
  • The Z2000 softball bat has come in and out of stock several times since it was launched by Louisville Slugger. Our current bat availability, if any, will be displayed on this page near the top. Louisville has been extremely back ordered on this bat since it was originally announced, and we expect to be chasing inventory all year long. Our best reccomendation is placing a pre order to get your spot in line. We offer No Hassle Returns, and you can cancel the order at any time for a full refund.
  • Answered by Brad M. - Bat Expert
  • Is the z2000 asa only, or can it be used in usssa/nsa/isf?
  • Asked by jay on Monday 19 August, 2013
  • This bat has the ASA stamp and the ISF stamp only. The ASA Z2000 softball bat is unfortunately, not legal for USSSA play.
  • Answered by Brad M. - Bat Expert
  • I just ordered and received the 2014 Louisville slugger Z2000 softball bat. Why does it look like the 2013 bat and not how it looks like in the picture on the web page? Color wise.
  • Asked by peter kahoopii on Wednesday 07 August, 2013
  • I just grabbed one of the bats and compared it to the picture we have on our website, and I did not notice any significant differences. Sometimes, different computer screens can show colors different, depending on how they are calibrated. As always, our return policy is a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you are not happy with your bat, we are happy to assist with an exchange or refund.
  • Answered by Mike P - Product Expert
  • Hi, I would like to check if the 2014 Z2000 ASA Balanced softball bat has the ISF stamp on the bat itself? Thanks!
  • Asked by Gary on Monday 05 August, 2013
  • The ISF stamp is printed near the end cap of this softball bat.
