Louisville Slugger has made the 2013 Omaha one of the most balanced bats on the market. The weight is evenly distributed throughout the bat which results in an increase in bat speed. An increase in bat speed equals an increase in power. In addition to the balanced feel, the ultra-stiff handle allows for more flex in the barrel to create an improved trampoline effect.
Louisville Slugger didn’t limit its new technology to the handle and the barrel. The 2013 Omaha is “capped” off with a new, two-color endcap designed to prevent the loss of energy when contact is made with the ball. The two-color endcap traps the energy created at contact in the barrel to give you an even bigger advantage at the plate.
We all know reading a well thought out review of a bat can be very helpful, but actually hearing from another player just how good a bat really is can be even better! Today we are featuring the 2012 Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior, and we all know how Louisville Slugger has set a certain standard of excellence for themselves in the bat industry and they are constantly living up to their name, and the 2012 TPX Warrior is no exception. The Warrior is one of the longest running series of bats that Louisville Slugger has to offer and there is a reason they keep bringing it back, it has proven itself over and over again. The Warrior has a one-piece alloy design constructed from Louisville Slugger’s 7050 alloy. The alloy Louisville Slugger gives players a solid performance and awesome durability. To top it off, the Warrior has a vibration dampening end cap that keeps energy in the barrel to create extreme power with each and every hit.

Louisville Slugger has really stuck to their guns with the Vertex series. The Vertex series is great balance of technology and respect for the game. Louisville uses their very strong LS-2x composite material for the handle which makes it even more stiff than its counterpart, the Exogrid. The very stiff handle with an alloy barrel creates a whipping action through the zone that is like no other. The combination of composite handle with an alloy barrel makes for an incredible barrel flex for hitters looking for an edge on the competition. The Vertex proves that Louisville is maximizing technology to its fullest potential.
Players and fans nationwide can rest assured that the TPX Vertex is a great example of why Louisville Slugger is a mainstay for America’s favorite pastime.
When the first Louisville Slugger TPX Triton hit the field three years ago, it debuted a concept that hadn’t ever been tried before; a three-piece composite bat. The idea was to insert a “Bubble Transition Zone” between the composite handle and the composite barrel to create a stiff one-piece feel. Highly revered for its explosive power, the TPX Triton quickly became a household name. Though gaining a loyal following, it became apparent that there were two main issues that most owners had; the Triton’s durability and its high price tag.
For the 2012 season, Louisville Slugger set out to satisfy these customers by reinventing the Triton. The goal was to make a high-quality TPX bat at an affordable price point; not an easy task in an industry where you generally get what you pay for. Louisville Slugger decided to completely scrap the stiff three-piece design and replace it with a true one-piece construction for the Triton II. The real game-changer here is Louisville Slugger’s new X-1 Composite that allows the Triton II to be built for bat speed, performance and durability… all at a lower price. Both the Senior League and Youth models feature -12 length to weight ratios and a balanced swing weight. Early sales and reviews suggest that this bat is going to make a huge splash this season.
