2016 Louisville Slugger LXT Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat Balanced -11oz FPLX161

The LXT Plus is Louisville Slugger's #1 Fastpitch Softball Bat once again, as it's made 100% composite, constructed with a 3-piece design, and comes with a balanced swing weight, giving you great bat speed and improved bat control. The 3-piece barrel-to-handle connection is held together with the TRU3 piece, which holds the barrel to one side and the handle to the other while not allowing them to touch. This TRU3 design allows for vibration to be non-existent while giving you explosive power transfer back to the sweet spot upon impact with the softball. The new Performance Plus Composite gives you zero wall friction, giving the LXT Plus barrel the best performance, pop & durability as possible. The LXT Plus also has a 2 1/4" barrel diameter and a 7/8" standard handle, while using the S1iD Technology to give you a lighter-feel with insane pop while staying within legal standards.

  • Pros: My daughters preferred bat choice has always been the Xeno but the 2016 LXT has brought her batting to a higher level. The LXT is a very balanced bat with serious pop . The Xeno is good but my daughter just crushes the softball with the LXT.
  • Cons: The price but would highly recommend this bat. You'll know where the extra money went.

  • Pros: The 2016 LXT Plus is my daughters favorite bat now. She has always been a LS XENO bat lover but this LXT bat has INSANE pop and is well balanced.She just turned 13 and is average size but has been just crushing the ball with authority. The balance of the LXT Plus gives her better control which has her confidence level growing after every bat. I would definitely recommend this bat and would buy it all over again.
  • Cons: The price but I believe you'll know where that extra money went.

  • Pros: I bought this bat for my 8 year old in machine pitch. She is consistently hitting to the outfield and line drives. Several of the girls on the team are also choosing to hit. I look forward to seeing many more hits!
  • Cons: So far we haven't found a con with this bat. We have only had bat for a few weeks.

  • Pros: We ordered the new LXT Fastpitch bat for my daughter, who had great mechanics, but needed a longer and upgraded bat. She absolutely loves it and so do I. Her coach does, as well. She started with having a better cut in her swing, and hitting the ball with a lot more fluency and speed. We cannot say enough about how much we love the bat.
  • Cons: Although it seems pricey at first, it is well worth the extra cost!

  • Pros: Bought bat for daughter who is on 8u team. Immediately made difference in hits, they were much harder and no sting which she really loved. The bat is the real deal and hot right away. Tried a couple different Easton models that were nothing compared to this bat. Will purchase another as she grows.
  • Cons: Nothing yet

  • When a bat s described as "out of wrapper" is it still a new bat? Is it a demo? Thanks.
  • Asked by MCM
  • Out of Wrapper bats are new unused bats that do not come with a warranty
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Ready to purchase a new bat for my daughter. She is about 4 ft 7in and 60 lbs. She plays 10u and is superfast. She has been using an Easton FS1 29/17. Considering a Xeno or LXT plus. What size would be appropriate?
  • Asked by Steve
  • It will ultimately come down to what she can handle. If a 29 inch bat is perfect for her, we do not recommend going up in size. Unfortunately The Xeno and LXT are not offered in a -12oz. drop and are only offered in a minus 10 and a minus 11, so it will be slightly heavier. If the 29 inch bat is too small we can recommend moving up to the 30 inch. It would be best to find a location or teammates who have a bigger size bat and see what works best for her.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • I am down to three bats for my daughter who plays 12u fast pitch, she is our lead off hitter, she is small (4' 7", 67lbs) but a good ball player. She bats both right and left handed and can slap left handed, I am looking for something with a little more power for her she currently swings the 2014 vendetta (29/17). I am down to this bat, the Demario cf8 wtdxcfs, the Easton mako fp15mky. Do you have a suggestion.
  • Asked by Alex
  • The FP15MKY will be a low quality bat. It is a single piece alloy bat. The DeMarini CF8 and the Louisville Slugger LXT are very similar bats in that they are full composite and it will come down to brand preference and feel.

  • Differences between the 2016 LXT and the 2015 LXT other then the new paint job???
  • Asked by Roy
  • The differences between the 2016 Louisville Slugger LXT Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat and the 2015 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat is the Performance Plus Composite and the new zero friction wall design. This should further increase barrel performance and durability. They are both mostly the same other than that.
  • Answered by Kris (Bat Expert)
  • I have seen on other sites that the LXT plus is available to ship May 15. Are others getting them earlier than you or maybe if you get them earlier do you ship out sooner rather than later?
  • Asked by Greg
  • Anyone promising arrival that early is not being honest. While a small amount of bats are on the field for testing and promotional purposes, no dealer will have the new 2016 Louisville Slugger bats available for sale before the end of May. We here at CheapBats.com try to under-promise and over-deliver. As soon as we get the bats we will ship them out immediately to all our customers that placed a pre-order.
