2013 Louisville Slugger OneX Fastpitch Softball Bat -8oz. FP1368
Louisville Slugger has seen incredible growth in their fastpitch softball bat sales in recent years because of the XENO. Not willing to stop with the XENO, Louisville Slugger upgraded the ring inside the barrel to a composite ring (vs metal in the XENO). The result is a larger sweet spot than ever before, along with a more balanced feel, and increased durability. 12 month warranty against defects.
RECALL NOTICE TO 2013 ONEX OWNERS:
Louisville Slugger has enjoyed an incredible resurgence in Fastpitch these past few years, driven by the strong
innovation in the bat lineup and the “Beautifully Powerful” campaign. Players like Jessica Mendoza, Ashley Charters
and Andrea Duran have helped put the latest bat innovations on the map and some of the top college programs in
the country are enjoying success on the field with the 2013 line as well.
With any truly innovative products come occasional obstacles and we’re writing this to share some important
developments isolated to the 2013 oneX. We have become aware of a manufacturing issue that has compromised
the durability of the oneX bat (pictured below) which potentially shows up in the form of cracking between barrel
and handle. In extreme cases, the manufacturing defect has resulted in a complete fracture between the handle and
barrel. While we know this will only affect a sub-set of oneX bats in the market, to protect the players and to live
up to our responsibility to give you the best product possible, we are voluntarily recalling the entire current line of
the oneX bat (all lengths and weights) from the market. Model numbers affected by this recall are FP136, FP1369
As Fastpitch softball players have learned over the years, Louisville Slugger prides itself on doing the right thing for
its loyal customers. We are committed to resolving this quickly and efficiently so we can get the best product
available back in your hands as quickly as possible. We will be providing a 2013 Xeno bat as a replacement as well
as giving customers the additional choice of one of the following: A) a glove or bag with an $80 retail value. B) a
$50 stored value gift card that's just like cash C) a 2014 oneX or equivalent bat to ship in August.
