  • Pros: Having swung the original Z1000 and Z2000 bats, I was a bit skeptical about the 2014 Z2000 measuring up. The OG Z's were HOT and this one is right on par. If you can get used to the unusual sound on contact, then you'll be pleased with this one. The phrase 'Hot right out of the wrapper' is over-used in my opinion, but I can't think of a better description for this bat. I've been hitting p-rockets with this thing since the first pitch was thrown to me.
  • Cons: Don't really have any cons with only 100 swings, other than the unusual sound it makes on contact.

  • What ASA ball specs was this bat made for? .52/300 or .44/375
  • Asked by Jerrett on Monday 09 March, 2015
  • The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Slowpitch Softball Bat ASA Balanced SBZ214-AB, as well as all new ASA bats, are made to mash with the 52/300 softball. However, new ASA bats can also perform quite well with the 44/375 softballs as well.
  • Answered by Kris (Bat Expert)
  • What is the manufacturer warranty on this bat
  • Asked by jon on Monday 09 February, 2015
  • The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 SBZ214-AB comes with a one you manufacturer's warranty against any defects such as cracks, dents or breaks. The warranty is only covered on a bat in normal used and does not cover grip tape.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • We are playing at 9am in FL. Some mornings are only 60 degrees. I believe I read that coolest use is 65 degrees. Is this true, or is this an estimate? I love this bat. Thank you
  • Asked by Lanny on Monday 19 January, 2015
  • The 65 degree temperature is what Louisville Slugger recommends not using their bat under that temperature due to the bat being prone to cracking under that temperature.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Is this the reissue or is this like the original issue?
  • Asked by Jake on Friday 16 January, 2015
  • This is an original bat directly from Louisville Slugger. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Slowpitch Softball Bat ASA Balanced SBZ214-AB that we offer is new unused in the wrapper directly from the manufacturer and comes with a one year manufacturer's warranty. This is not a reissued bat.

  • Is this bat in stock and ready to ship??????
  • Asked by Tonya on Friday 15 August, 2014
  • This bat is indeed in stock and ready to ship.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Got my Z2000 ASA, so far have liked but tends to have different sound than any other bat out there? Kind of a Ping sound, is this normal?
  • Asked by Josh on Monday 21 July, 2014
  • The Z series bats by Louisville Slugger do have an unusual sound compared to any other bat on the market. That has been one of the major factors in the Z series with their construction is the sound it makes when making contact. All is normal with your bat.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Just wondering if the warranty is thru Louisville slugger
  • Asked by ryan on Thursday 19 June, 2014
  • The one year manufacturer's warranty for the Louisville Slugger Z2000 will be through the manufacturer Louisville Slugger not the retailer. All bat warranties offered on our website are done through the manufacturer.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Can you guys do any better on the price? They are selling for $140-145 on ebay. Thanks, Kevin
  • Asked by Kevin on Tuesday 17 June, 2014
  • The price listed on our website will be the lowest price we can offer at this time.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • I understand there is a one year hassle free return policy. Can you confirm this? I would like to return this bat. If returned, is there a store credit issued or will there be a reverse on the charge on my cc
  • Asked by Steve Bimbo on Wednesday 30 April, 2014

  • Answered by
  • What ist the BPF Rating of this bat? How do I get it certified my brand new bat was thrown out of my league because their was no rating printed on the barrel. They would not except the Asa stamp.
  • Asked by Steve on Thursday 24 April, 2014
  • This bat has the new ASA stamp on it. If your league will not accept an ASA stamp you need to find out what your league requirements are. If you league requires a BPF stamp on your bat of 1.20 and the USSSA thumb print stamp you will need the SBZ214-UB or SBZ214-UE.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • What is the difference between the z2000 and the z3000? I am not sure what one to buy. What would be the better bat?
  • Asked by ty on Monday 26 August, 2013
  • The Z2000 and Z3000 are very similar bats. The major difference is that the Z3000 uses a different method to connect the handle and the barrel. This 3 piece design is said to dramatically reduce vibration in the hands, and increase the durability of the bat. Both softball bats will use the new Louisville Slugger exclusive, Pure 360 composite.
  • Answered by Mike P. - Bat Expert
  • I was wondering if this is still pre-order only or if it is up for sale and ready to be shipped now? Seeing as there are reviews for the bat..
  • Asked by Brett on Tuesday 20 August, 2013
  • The Z2000 softball bat has come in and out of stock several times since it was launched by Louisville Slugger. Our current bat availability, if any, will be displayed on this page near the top. Louisville has been extremely back ordered on this bat since it was originally announced, and we expect to be chasing inventory all year long. Our best reccomendation is placing a pre order to get your spot in line. We offer No Hassle Returns, and you can cancel the order at any time for a full refund.
  • Answered by Brad M. - Bat Expert
  • Is the z2000 asa only, or can it be used in usssa/nsa/isf?
  • Asked by jay on Monday 19 August, 2013
  • This bat has the ASA stamp and the ISF stamp only. The ASA Z2000 softball bat is unfortunately, not legal for USSSA play.
  • Answered by Brad M. - Bat Expert
  • I just ordered and received the 2014 Louisville slugger Z2000 softball bat. Why does it look like the 2013 bat and not how it looks like in the picture on the web page? Color wise.
  • Asked by peter kahoopii on Wednesday 07 August, 2013
  • I just grabbed one of the bats and compared it to the picture we have on our website, and I did not notice any significant differences. Sometimes, different computer screens can show colors different, depending on how they are calibrated. As always, our return policy is a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you are not happy with your bat, we are happy to assist with an exchange or refund.
  • Answered by Mike P - Product Expert
  • Hi, I would like to check if the 2014 Z2000 ASA Balanced softball bat has the ISF stamp on the bat itself? Thanks!
  • Asked by Gary on Monday 05 August, 2013
