2012 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat -10oz FP12X

2012 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat

From the earliest days of the game, Louisville Slugger has always employed the most powerful technology available in the bat business. Back in the days of Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth, that meant having the most skilled craftsmen at the lathe, handcrafting bats to the most demanding specifications of the world’s most demanding players. Today, it means applying the latest aerospace technology to bat making, delivering high-tech aluminum, hybrid and composite bats that give new meaning to the word “performance.”

The Swing1 inner Disc (S1iD) Barrel Technology allows the barrel to flex to its maximum allowable performance level from SWING1. This bat is “Game Ready” from the time you take off the wrapper. The two inner discs are positioned inside the barrel at the sweet spot to stop the barrel from flexing past the performance limit, giving players maximum allowable performance. Precise positioning of iD within the barrel also allows us to bring up the performance around the sweet spot – which means you get a larger performing sweet spot, not just a better feeling one.

Louisville Sluggers LS-2X Composite technology 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.

  • Review by:
  • Pros: Very nice "pop" from this bat straight out of the wrapper! Daughter hit at Nationals with it the first time she used it and got a home run on her second at bat! Very comfortable to swing and great handle grips. No need to break it in! Best BAT $ I've ever spent. MUCH better performance than a Demarini CF4 or an Easton bat!
  • Cons: Only dislike was the "sound" this bat makes. Sounds like glass breaking but it DOES get the job done....and it DOES turn heads. The sound is something you have to get used to but the pop is fantastic! DEF worth it!

  • Pros: Purchased bat for 12 year old daughter who plays on travel team. She absolutely loves the bat. No sting at all. Very good pop out of the wrapper. We always work on hitting fundamentals over anything else so moving up from single wall aluminium bat(still one of the better hitters on the team)to this has improved the distance she hits. Can not comment on durability, but judging by how much she likes it I hope it lasts a long time. Very satisfied.
  • Cons: Only con is as others say, the rest of the team will want to hit with it. If that's a con? And people who have never heard the crack sound it makes will swear it's broken.

  • Pros: Great bat. Good sweet spot with great pop off the bat
  • Cons: Bat went flat in 4 months. Louisville slugger warranty process will leave my daughter without a bat for up to 3 weeks during the heart of her season. VERY DISAPPOINTED
