2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat Balanced -11oz FPXN161

The Xeno continues to be Louisville Slugger's most popular Fastpitch Softball Bat, and the new XENO PLUS is sure to be no different. The Xeno Plus is made 100% composite, constructed with a 2-piece design, and comes with a balanced swing weight, giving you great bat speed and improved bat control. The 2-piece barrel-to-handle connection, called the iST Technology, is going to limit vibration and give you a bit of flex without compromising the sturdyness of the bat. The new Performance Plus Composite gives you zero wall friction, giving the Xeno Plus barrel the best performance, pop & durability as possible. The Xeno 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.

  • Review by:
  • Pros: Good pop when new
  • Cons: We have a 2016 Xeno Plus -11, we use to have a 2015 Xeno -11. The 2015 Xeno -11 was returned because the end cap started coming off after about 6-7 months of use. The replacement they sent and made sure that we understood this was our 1 Bat warranty replacement was a 2016 Xeno Plus -11. Well we have used it about 8 months and the 2 piece construction sounds like it has started coming apart. You can slap it in your hand and hear a tink sound and the bat end will move a little. She plays year round with High School and Select so she puts it to use. But as of present the bat can not handle the work load. Since I have used my one bat warranty I can not get a defective product replaced. So moral of the story, Rethink your purchase of a Xeno bat product if your daughter plays year round. They can not handle the work load.

  • Pros: Purchased the Louisville Slugger XENO bat for my granddaughter. She loves the bat and had 2 doubles and triple over the past weekend in her tournament play. The bat is a little lighter than her previous, and seems to be the right length and weight for her current batting capabilities.

  • Pros: My daughter just started playing competitive softball and I wanted her to have a great bat. She can't quite swing the minus 10 bats yet so I got her this Xeno Plus. Right away she is doing so much better using this bat from her S300. I've noticed her bat speed increase and I think she just has a lot more confidence with this bat.
  • Cons: I thought it broke the first game because it sounds like it cracks every time you hit the ball with it.

  • Pros: My dtr's last travel ball team used this bat, and I must say it made a big difference. We are in So Cal so we play year round and use/abuse our bats/equipment. We had two sets of bats BP and game bats. the BP bats, which we do use in cages got beat up and did not last very long. Our game day bats, which get used for all batting drills on game day, except cages are still good and I believe are hotter then when we first got them. Our new team does not provide bats, but she loved her Xeno we got her her own Xeno.
  • Cons: Composite bats are not to be used in cages, manufacture disclaimer even says so, it voids the warranty. The batting cage bats are throw away's once they breakdown, fortunately we are a big organization and can afford to do this, most can't.

  • Will there be a difference in weight feel between a -11 aluminium (which I have now) and a -11 composite (the louisville slugger xeno (plus))? I'm changing to a composite, but I'm not sure to pick the same drop (-11), or a drop heavier or lighter? I'm a small player and want to hit further.
  • Asked by Kim
  • Kim, That is a great question. There will be quite a bit of difference in the feel of the bat during the point of contact. While an alloy barrel bat will have a "ping" sound to it, the composite barrel bats will have more of a "crack" sound to it. When it comes to the weight of the bats in fastpitch bats, the -11oz. bats in alloy will feel similar to the -11oz. in composite.

  • What's the deal? I preordered this bat for my daughter and they said June 1st shipping out called them and they said now the following week. Now I see the 16th, if they can't decide don't get a date or if the bats aren't ready don't give a date till they are, it frustrating for her and me
  • Asked by Bama39
  • Unfortunately Louisville Slugger's shipping containers from China have been delayed thus delaying their arrival to us. We do apologize and will ship out the day that they are received.
