ASA Softball will be coming out with a new stamp for 2013 play starting Oct 1st. Currently all ASA bats that have the 2000 and 2004 stamps will be allowed for 2013 as long as they are not on the Non-Approved ASA list. Most of the bats on this list are older models and no longer manufactured.
All bats with a 2000 or 2004 stamp are legal (can not be on the list above)
Back by popular demand and being released earlier than expected is the new 2013 Louisville Slugger Xeno. The Xeno is one of the hottest Fastpitch bats on the market and has been getting great reviews for years. The 2013 Xeno is manufactured with Louisville Slugger’s LS 2X Composite and features their S1iD technology. These two technologies make the Xeno one of the best Fastpitch bats from year to year. The S1iD technology is done by placing two inner discs inside the barrel at the sweet spot which halts the barrel from flexing past the allowable performance level. However, with precise positioning of these inner discs within the barrel, Louisville Slugger is able to increase the performance around the sweet spot which means you get a larger performing sweet spot from day 1. This S1iD technology makes this bat “Game Ready”, no more break-in periods. The LS 2X composite is Louisville Sluggers highest preforming material. This composite is very thin and layered together giving these bats a light weight feel and unmatched durability. See what all the excitement is about. Check out the new 2013 Xeno today!
