2012 Louisville Slugger Z1000 Slowpitch Softball Bat Balanced SB12ZB

2012 Louisville Slugger Z1000 Slowpitch Softball Bat End Load


The new 2012 Louisville Slugger Z1000 Slowpitch Softball Bat uses Louisville Sluggers LS-2X Composite technology, which brings new thinner high-strength and lightweight graphite fibers that allow them to reduce the wall thickness, creating better performance while maintaining durability. Thinner fibers allow use of more layers in the barrel for added strength, but with an overall wall that is thinner.

While maintaining handle stiffness, iST joins the barrel and handle together, providing players with a great solid feel and larger sweet spot. Unlike Slugger's competitors, iST features a solid connection between the handle and barrel, giving players maximum performance – even on inside hits. Vibration from a miss hit is absorbed before it reaches a player’s hands. Without the worry of sting or vibration from “off sweetspot hits,” a player can maintain acceleration through impact for increased and more consistent performance.

  • Balanced swing weight

  • Review by:
  • Pros: This has got to be one of the most under rated bats on the market right now. The sound will through you off but once it breaks in watch out this thing is money. This bat as a very nice size sweet spot. It hits all balls good which is a plus during warm/hot days when the balls turn to mush.
  • Cons: Durability seems to be an issue with these bats. Not a cold weather bat or BP bat.
