Pros: DD has has the CF5, and the Mako and I talked her into this bat and she loves it. Has had it one month and she said the other bats she had is no comparison, harder line drives and hit her 1st HR in a big tournament, she's already told me her next bat is another Xeno

Cons: Half the team wants to use it

Pros: Pop- I dont think it comes out of the box with as much POP as our old 2014 Xeno, but hopefully it will get hotter with more hits. It also has a different sound than the 2013 & 2014 Xeno. General Feel - The bat has a good feel to it, also has a rough texture over the barrel of the bat (Not sure of exact purpose or benefit of this) Durabulity - Brand New cant answer this one.. Graphics- It is a sharp looking bat, still new not sure how they hold up..

Cons: Thought it might be a little hotter out of the box and does not have that 2013 & 2014 Xeno Sound.. Hopefully it will get hotter with more hits.. I am also comparing it to a broken in 2014 Xeno Bat.. We like Xeno bat this is our 3rd one..( 2013, 2014, 2016 models)

My daughter is 4'8" and 70 lbs. She is a good hitter, but doesn't always have a lot of power. What are the differences between the XENO and LXT? Which would you recommend? Asked by Michele

I would recommend getting a fastpitch softball bat in the 30" length. This 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) has been an excellent bat for a number of years. It will have your two-piece, all-composite design and a balanced swing weight. The LXT will feature the same material, but it also features an advanced connection point that allows for more barrel flex at contact and limits the vibration that gets to a player's hands on a miss-hit. If you want the model that technically has the most technology, I would suggest an LXT. However, the XENO can be bought for slightly less money and I think it has the potential to perform as well as the LXT. Ben Expert

My daughter is 5'6" and about 130 lbs. What bat and size would you recommend for her? She has been a power hitter thus far and most go to the fence. Looking for that little extra to get them over. Asked by gaetheb7803

Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 in a 33/23. Cameron Expert

My 11 year old daughter is 4'9" and weighs 90lbs. She currently has the 30/20 Xeno (2015 model). What would your recommend for her (i.e. length/weight and Xeno or LXT)? Asked by Scott

I would suggest the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 in a 31" 21oz. size based on her height and weight and the fact that she is used to the feel of the XENO. Logan Expert

There's a reason Louisville Slugger remains the #1 bat in fastpitch softball. Their attention to detail and drive to surpass so-called limits have resulted in this year's newest and most-innovative design yet: the Louisville Slugger XENO PLUS Fastpitch Softball bat! Like many elite players have grown accustomed to seeing in other XENO models, the barrel features the S1iD Inner Disc Barrel Technology with a Zero Friction Double Wall Design. This technology actually allows the barrel to be tuned to exceed the legal ball exit speed ratio. The trick is that a governor is placed inside that allows the barrel to flex to its MAXIMUM allowable performance from SWING 1. The XENO PLUS is made from Louisville Slugger's innovative newest Performance PLUS Composite material. This composite blend is lighter and more durable than previous versions, and with the S1iD Technology, it needs ABSOLUTELY ZERO BREAK-IN! The XENO PLUS also features a new iST Connection for a solid bond between handle and barrel. iST provides players a bat with a slightly stiffer feel for more efficient energy transfer on contact and a HUGE sweetspot; all while absorbing vibrations from mis-hit balls before they reach the player's hands. With a tacky synthetic grip a 7/8 inch handle, the XENO PLUS WTLFPXN160 will provide players with absolute control and confidence at the plate. Louisville Slugger: Passion In Your Heart; Power In Your Hands! The XENO PLUS is approved by all major fastpitch softball organizations (ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA and ISF). This bat comes with a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty against breakage. Free Shipping!
