2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Softball Bat End Loaded ASA Slow Pitch

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 about a month ago and it's hot out of the wrapper. I usually hit bloopers to the out field now i'm hitting to the fence. I have a buddy that prefers my Z-2000 to his Z-3000. Great bat for the money.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • I can buy this bat brand new from Hock Sports ebay page for $189.99. It stills comes with the one year manufacture warranty and is still in the wrapper. I have heard very good thing about you guys though. I am also buying another bat after I can finish this message. Can you guys match their price? Thank you.
  • Asked by Geoff on Thursday 06 March, 2014
  • We cannot match their price.
