2015 Louisville Slugger XENO Fastpitch Softball Bat -9oz FPXN159

The elite, incredibly popular Xeno is back for 2015 action! This bat is constructed with 100% Pure 360 Composite material, where Louisville Slugger incorporates strong graphite fibers inside the barrel to reduce thickness and increase strength. Also in the barrel is inner discs, called the S1iD Technology, which increases barrel flex and create a more forgiving sweet spot for hitters to take advantage of. The Xeno is also a 2-piece bat, connected using the iST Technology, the innovative method that joins the barrel and handle for a great overall feel and limited sting to the hands upon contact with the softball.

This particular Xeno has a -9 length to weight ratio and has a balanced swing weight. This balanced weight distribution allows for increased bat speed through the zone while still being smooth and easy to control. Stamped with 1.20 BPF USSSAASA and NSA approval for fastpitch softball leagues.

  • Pros: It has performed well on the field of play. My girls first at bat was a home run. The price was also better than in stores.
  • Cons: The bat ended up being lighter than expected. I wish we would have went with a bigger bat.

  • how does this bat (-9oz) compare to a (-10oz) or (-12oz) while hitting? does it hit it not as far?
  • Asked by sally
  • The smaller the drop the heavier the bat. When you see -9oz. that means the differential from the length and weight. The heavier the bat, the more force behind the swing, the further a ball will go. Without bat speed though, a bat is ineffective.

  • I would like a bat for a 14 year old for fast pitch ball and was wonder how the Xeno would compare to the X12 bat. and what would be a good weight (- oz) for a 14 year old
  • Asked by cindy
  • The Xeno is a heavier bat than the X12. The X12 comes in a -12oz. which is the differential from the length and weight. The -9oz. Xeno is 3 ounces heavier than the X12 and will require more strength and force to use than the X12. Both bats are great high performing bats, but the -9oz. Xeno is usually for a high school/ college athlete due to the heavier weight.
