2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Slowpitch Softball Bat ASA End Loaded SBZ214-AE

The freshly upgraded End Loaded ASA version of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 softball bat is stronger and more durable than before. The End Loaded Z2000 feels heavier because of more mass is placed towards the end of the barrel. The idea is that stronger power hitters can swing the bat just as fast as a weaker player can swing a balanced softball bat. More mass traveling at the same speed equals, you got it, more power. 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, plus 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 more durable 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 trampoline
  • iST technology
  • End Loaded to reward stronger power hitters
  • 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

  • Pros: I bought this bat about 2 months ago and it is hot from the get go. I am not a strong power hitter, but with this bat it doesn't take much. There is no real break in period with the bat, but the first 50 to 100 hits are going to sound like hitting a very odd aluminum bat. The ladies on my co-ed team also love this bat. For an end load the weight feels evenly distributed. Great look, hits ropes and bombs, best ASA bat by far on the market, durable, and not break-in time.
  • Cons: I personally have nothing bad to say about the bat. Some of my teammates complained about the grip being overly sticky, so I wrapped it with lizard skin wrap.

  • Pros: Good pop when you get the sweetspot. About average distance. Handles the 300/.52's with ease.
  • Cons: Really thought it would live up to the old standard. Off hits don't travel well at all.

  • Pros: I am a rec softball player that plays twice a week. With that said, I have tried all the new latest and greatest bats.I purshased the z2000 because a guy on my team had one and he let me hit it a few times. This is am awesome Bat!!! Crushes 52/300 balls. Takes about 50 balls to totally break in and be super hot. Best bat for the price. Yes you can buy a $299 dollar bat but i promise you this bat is just as good and/or better. Happy hitting!!!!!
  • Cons: Extremely loud sound upon ball contact. Grip not as sticky as other bats in the same price range.

  • Pros: I bought this bat 2 weeks ago and the first hit off of it was just over the wall. It has a great feel to it when you connect with the ball. I love the thick grip that comes stock on it. For an end loaded bat it feels a little more balanced than my Easton but it does feel like there is more mass behind my hits swinging this bat. All my team mates have their own bats but little by little they are all using this one, they love it.
  • Cons: My team mates say they don't like the way the bat sounds but to tell you the truth I don't really notice it during the game.

  • Pros: As soon as I received the z2000 I took it to the field to test it out. I used my tee drills and could tell the bat was hotter out of the wrapper than other bats I have had. When my bp partner showed up and was pitching to me, the bat felt great hitting bombs. Have about 250 swings already.

  • Pros: Really nice feeling bat. The "end loaded" doesn't really feel end loaded, or unbalanced in any way.
  • Cons: The bat's sound is a little strange. After taking ~100 soft toss swings with it, I still feel like it's opened up yet. Hard to tell what kind of a bat it's going to turn into

  • How much endload does the Z2000 have? And what compression/cor softballs are recommended for this bat?
  • Asked by Thatonedude22 on Monday 09 February, 2015

  • Does this bat have the 1.20 stamp?
  • Asked by Antonio on Wednesday 09 July, 2014
  • This bat does NOT have the 1.20 stamp on it as that is a USSSA stamp and this bat will be an ASA only approved bat.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Do you offer to roll the bats before shipping?
  • Asked by Charlie Lodge on Tuesday 24 June, 2014
  • We do not roll or shave bats.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • So I'm relatively new to the world of slowpitch and was wondering, does it make that much difference in power if you go with a 26oz vs a 28oz bat? I feel like I would have a lot more bat speed with the 26 but with the 28 you would have more bat mass in motion. Help
  • Asked by Flyone on Friday 06 June, 2014
  • Welcome to the game! The different weights are almost entirely a matter of personal preference. You are 100% correct about bat speed and more mass, if you a strong enough to swing a 28 ounce slowpitch bat quickly, you probably should. Regardless, there is no wrong choice. Go with what feels comfortable for you!
  • Answered by Bryan
  • My league has some restrictions to bats. The bat can't have a BPF higher than 1.20, it can't be a triple walled or a titanium bat, and it has to be stamped ASA approved. Does this bat meet all requirements?
  • Asked by Patrick on Wednesday 07 May, 2014
  • The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 ASA End Loaded bat is indeed ASA approved and is not a triple wall or titanium. Being ASA approved this bat will not have a BPF higher than 1.20.
