2016 Louisville Slugger Z4000 USSSA End Loaded Slowpitch Softball Bat SBZ416U-E

The Z4000 bats for 2016 are made as a 3-piece, constructed out of 100% Pure 360 Composite material. The barrel-to-handle connection is held together using the TRU3 piece, which significantly eliminates vibration and efficiently transfers contact energy back to the barrel. Speaking of the barrel, Louisville uses a Grit Blast Finish to create more spin on the ball. This spin will increase the intensity of your hits, making them go further at a faster speed. Lastly, the Z4's have a 7/8" Tapered Handle, 12" Barrel Length & the standard slow-pitch 2 1/4" Barrel Diameter

End Loaded - Made for power hitters, this Z4000 has an End Load weighting for more mass at the end of the barrel.

USSSA - This bat is approved for USSSA, NSA and ISA softball associations

  • Pros: This bat is serious. Put about 150 swings on it in the cage so wasn't real sure about distance until today. Sent a few with the first dozen I hit. The best thing about this bat is it is extremely forgiving. Great pop even when you don't hit the sweet spot. When you do expect a bomb. I was very surprised with the distance on a few considering i felt next to nothing on contact. 3 piece construction is legit. All around solid. I was hoping I would like the 4000 as much as the 2000. Well, I do.
  • Cons: Nope. Hope the 3 piece construction holds up.

  • Pros: Bat has amazing pop out of the wrapper. I hit moon shots with this bat, and love how it feels. The end load is perfect for guys who like to hit home runs.
  • Cons: Within 30 swings and less than 20 days of owning this bat, it blew up. I hit a softball in a tournament, and the entire barrel cracked and pieces went everywhere. Not sure if anyone else has had this happen. Hopefully this is not a common occurrence because like I said I really enjoy the pop this bat has and the drive the ball has coming off this bat.

  • Pros: Extremely hot out of the wrapper! I've never hit a softball as far as i hit with the end load Usssa z4000. (i swear i dont work for the company its just an extremely hot bat)
  • Cons: Broke about 5 games into my season. Louisville replaced the bat with the newer model Z-4 immediately which was nice. hopefully the new version holds up!

  • Pros: Great bat! Once this is broken in, it launches line drives like crazy. My buddy bought this bat last summer. This is his only bat of choice. It is very durable and can be used in all types of weather. Doesn't matter If you are a base hitter only or if you are the power home run hitter of the team, it works for anyone! Fair price as well. My buddy went 11 for 12 in his playoffs with this bat. Must buy.
  • Cons: Takes a little to break in. Some people say(which I agree with) It has like movement in the handle or like a slight "twist" That's how these bats are. I have used other Z-type bats that do the same. It is at least a 2 piece bat. It is very mild you just have to get use to it.

  • Pros: Awesome bat! There is a little bit of a break in period (about 50 swings) but once this thing opens up they are hard shots and line drives! Sweet spot is also great and even if you make contact out of the sweet spot it is still forgiving. Hands down awesome bat and would def recommend!
  • Cons: No complaints

  • Pros: Best bat I've ever swung. Before buying this bat, our whole team only had 1 Homerun all together. The first game we hit 4 as a team, and the 2nd game we hit 9. I've lost count after our 4th or fifth game, but highly suggested.
  • Cons: only con i have is I bought this bat when it was $300. but totally worth it.

  • Pros: Unwrapped it at a tourney. 1st swing BOMB on a mushball. Most of everyone on the team started to use it. It only got hotter throughout the day. Ordered a 26oz, feels alot lighter. Feels good in hand. Nice solid bat all the way from knob to end cap. Everyone loved the feel. The matte/sandpaper feel to it.
  • Cons: No real cons other than the fat end knob thing. But I'll live.

  • Pros: I previous owned z2000 and loved it. So I thought i give the z4000 a try and it was amazing out of the wrapper. Exit speed balls was coming off the bat was amazing defently loved this bat!!
  • Cons: Sad note about this bat 97 swings into having it the casing of the barrel started chipping which lead to the barrel cracking on me. They replaced it with upper model z4 but wish they would have just fixed issue with z4000

  • Pros: I purchased the 30 oz version of this bat and it is HEAVY. Feels great though. Guys on our team hit exclusively with this bat now (versus a Z-2000 27 oz they used to hit with). Have hit several balls where I though "I didn't get all of that." only to watch it sail over the fence. Big picture, great bat.
  • Cons: This bat is great but the end loading does make it feel heavy, and if you're a smaller person, definitely get the 27 or 28 oz version.

  • Pros: Great bat. Hot right out of the wrapper. Laser line drives and deep bombs. Only have about 50 swings on it so I'm excited to see how it improves.

  • Thus bat says 26oz. Is that the starting weight before the endload? What is the final weight?
  • Asked by SOSA
  • The "end load" does not add weight, as that's just the weight distribution. The bat is 26oz without the end cap, bat grip, and knob put on the bat.

  • What's the difference between these bats and the the z4000 end loaded being sold on the Louisville site? This bat looks different
  • Asked by Heavy-D
  • Louisville Slugger shows that they have the same bat here as well as the ASA model. Not sure what you are looking at, but if you contact us Monday-Friday 8AM-4PM at 1-800-589-4487 we can better assist you.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Is this equivalent to the Louisville Slugger Z-2000 End Load Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SBZ214-UE? Or a newer version?
  • Asked by Dana
  • The Z2000's and Z4000's will have similar barrels but different connection pieces thus making the Z4000 have a little more flex to it. The Super Z will be the new updated version of the Z2000.
  • Answered by Kevin (Customer Service)
  • Is this the dual stamp bat? I see USSSA on it, but some reviews with a bat that looked like this said it was dual USSSA/ASA stamped. I assume that means the bat is not as hot with the ASA limitation as a true USSSA bat would be? Just not familiar with a dual stamped bat.
  • Asked by Ronnie
  • This bat is NOT a dual stamp bat. There were two other Z4000 bats (a dual stamp balanced and a dual stamp end load) but are no longer in production. The remaining Z4000's (SBZ416U-e and SBZ416U-B) will NOT be ASA certified.
