  • Pros: Hot right out of the package. Definitely a different feel and sound that takes getting used to, but once you dial it in... holy crap. My first tapered handle, but I like it. Definitely comfortable, and no shock.
  • Cons: None. Although I have heard from others that the 3 piece design starts to loosen after a while. Guess I will find out.

  • Pros: Hard swings the ball will knuckle, Softer swings the ball will slice. After some swings the barrel seems to be forgiving. I have a powerful swing so I can use almost any bat to hit it out with, this bat doesn't have the distance as others do.
  • Cons: If your looking for a bat to hit a JAACK with this isn't it. this bat adds slice to balls. It still sounds like a "Z"... Tinging or glass shattering noise.

  • Pros: I bought this bat for my wife. She came back from her game totally stoked! First hit with this bat was a home run! Eight other team members used it for that first game. Four more home runs and brutal grounders. They won that game 22-4. My wife was leaving on vacation the next day and her team begged her to leave the bat with them! Super fast swing, hard impact resulting in extremely difficult balls to field. And as a side note the customer service for Cheapbats is awesome. Would totally recommend them!

  • Pros: Pretty good pop out of the wrapper. About 70 swings so far and it's starting to break in.
  • Cons: Still not quite the distance I was expecting, but hoping as it breaks in completely it will improve. Still not a bad bat though.

  • Pros: Stupid hot bat for the price. Pop was good right out of the wrapper but got better every time I used it. Took about 60 swings to break in before I was confident enough to use it in games.
  • Cons: Taper. I took off the grip. I highly recommend adding a lizard skin grip instead.

  • Pros: Great feel with the end load. Not too much weight but just enough to be able to tell it's there. The bat has plenty of pop with not much break-in. I also like the flared heel at the end of the grip. My first game with the bat I hit well, which says a lot about the confidence level with this bat.
  • Cons: Not sure on the rough barrel finish yet, will have to hit it some more to see if I like that or not.

  • Pros: Bat has good pop right out of the box. For an end loaded bat it was almost more of a balance between loaded and balanced, which I actually find to be very nice.
  • Cons: The only con is that the base of the grips are a little thicker than I prefer.

  • Pros: Great right out of the wrapper. Was easily hitting 275 (not a power hitter either). Half the team used it as soon as I got it. They really liked it too. And for 129$ can't go wrong.
  • Cons: None yet.

  • Pros: Bat has a great feel and has decent pop out of the wrapper, definitely takes at least 100 swings for this bat to start to get better. I'm a line drive hitter and this bat has me going 4 for 4 or 5 for 5 game in and game out..... Highly recommend the balanced version for all the line drive hitters out there, you wont be disappointed.
  • Cons: None that I have found so far ..... only con would be for the defense facing this bat, they hate it :)

  • Pros: Great bat with good bat control and pop right out of the wrapper. Good grip which allows for good bat control and speed to the ball. I am partial to it, but I really like the comfort of the built in tappered handle. Traditional LS sound off the bat!!!
  • Cons: Stiff with a small sweet spot out of the wrapper, but livens up after you begin breaking it in.

  • Review by:
  • Pros: Swung a 28oz and it felt and performed Very nice. |The bat we had gamed was brand new and performed very well.. We use 44/375's in ASA and the ball jumped off the bat and over the fence. Some people do not like that "metal clank" like sound that this bat makes but I actually like it. This is one of the few bats that I have swung that was truly hot out the wrapper. Louisville Slugger bats are underrated because of the Miken/Worth hype. For ASA, you will not be disappointed. Have a nice taper on the handle as well.
  • Cons: NONE AT ALL

  • Pros: This bat doesn't feel like an endload when you swing it, and the handle on this bat has a great feel to it!
  • Cons: The sound (which is like "breaking glass") takes some getting used to, and we are not getting the distance we expected for an endload bat, but this may change as we break it in.

  • Pros: This bat is awesome. Played a couple games with it. Love the sounds. The whole team swings this bat nice and smooth with a definite end load. I bought this bat because of the price and reviews here at cheapbats. I had other people tell me that it was not good. Maybe true for some but I love this bat. I will probably only swing Louisville from now on.
  • Cons: ZERO!! I changed the grips to lizard skin ( I just like that feel better). This bat has a slight taper at the end of the handle, this is just in the grip tape. If you take off the tape and switch it out the taper is gone. This is not a bad thing just FYI

  • Pros: I really liked how this felt the first time I swung it. I am more of a power hitter and having it end loaded really helped me. I've hit several homeruns already with this, I did break it in slightly off of a tee. Extremely happy with this purchase and the price on this site is significantly cheaper than amazon.
  • Cons: Will take in some time to break it in but did not take me many swings.

  • Pros: Sounds like an aluminum bat with a ton of pip when you hit that sweet spot. First at bat...3 run shot left center and felt no vibration what do ever.
  • Cons: Thought I could retape with Lizard skin but when I undid the grip the bottom part fell apart so don't have the comfortable bottom towards end anymore

  • Pros: Waited 2 months because I was hesitant about buying online but the price was great and I'm glad I did. Shipped on time with no problems. No game use yet but have about 100 swings in and this bat has pop. Outfielders backed up deep and even when they turned and ran back the ball was still way over their heads. No vibrations and feels great off the bat. Noticed some line drives slicing which made it more difficult to field
  • Cons: Grit finish does mark up pretty easy but doesn't seem to effect ball flight. Not a con for me but those who like a big knob won't like the taper at the bottom, but I choke up an inch so it's perfect for me.

  • Can this bat be used in cold weather if game softballs are kept warm?
  • Asked by G Money
  • You can, but it is never ideal for any composite bat to be used in cold weather. The odds of your composite barrel cracking increases, and that's not just for this bat, but all composite barreled bats.
  • Answered by Kris (Bat Expert)
  • How does this bat compare to the z2000 camo print bats?
  • Asked by Francisco
  • This will be a 3 piece bat while the Z2000 is a 2 piece bat. If you are looking for something similar to the Z2000 we recommend the Super Z as that is the bat that replaced the Z2000. The Z4 will perform as well as the Z2000 or the Super Z and will come down to personal preference. The Z4 will have more flex than the Super Z.

  • Looking for a bat for NSA. Thoughts on this compared to the balanced Z4 USSSA other than price?
  • Asked by Corey
  • The WTLZ4U16B will have more pop than the ASA dual stamp bat as it will have a faster exit speed.
