Completely new for 2014, the Louisville Slugger Z3000 slow pitch bat also gets a new camo paint job. With improved durability in all 2014 Louisville Slugger softball bats, you can rest assured the best bats on the softball field will continue to be Louisville Slugger.
The new T2 Technology in the transition of the barrel and the handle is made to strengthen the bond of the two. The Z-3000 softball bat benefits from this link due to an increase in trampoline effect in the barrel and dramatically decreased vibration when hitting the softball. The T2 connection piece is thicker, sturdier, and stronger.
The Z3000 softball bat has thinner, high-strength walls in the barrel that allow Louisville Slugger to use more layers of ultra strong graphite fibers, making the Z3000 barrel lighter, thinner, and stronger at the same time.
Just ask softball superstar and USSSA Offensive Player of The Year Tim Cocco and USSSA 1st Team All Conference Lee Powers what the best softball bat is. They both use Louisville Slugger slow pitch bats.
Balanced vs End Load - A balanced softball bat is easier to swing, despite being the same weight as an end loaded bat. Balanced bats are used most commonly by line drive hitters, while End Loaded softball bats are used by power hitters. Swing weight is personal preference, and we sell both about equal.
ASA vs USSSA - These are the two most popular softball associations in the United States. The difference is how fast the softball is allowed to come off the barrel of the bat. With recent rule changes in both ASA and USSSA, they are now very similar in performance. Be sure to check with your league director about which bat you need. Or call our friendly staff!
