Pros:  Came out of the box as expected. Had great pop, great feel, great looks. There is no way for me to grade durability but without question the rest of the grading criteria = 5 stars. We are replacing a 2012 Xeno with a 34" bat. We were a little unsure of what to do, buy 2014 or buy the 2012. It's hard to tell about how others may judge a bat which only adds to the confusion so I really tried to be an open book for this review since there are no other reviews. We are very happy with the 2014 Xeno. In addition to the Xeno, we also bought the LXT since it has a 30 day promise. I hit outfield fungo so I could personally get a feel for how the ball jumped off the '12 Xeno, '14 Xeno and LXT. Without a doubt, hands down, the '14 Xeno had more pop than the LXT. As a matter of fact the '12 Xeno had just as much, if not more, and there is no telling how many 1,000's of balls the '12 has had hit. Sorry LXT but you will be going back to where you came from.

Cons:  None, very happy.

Pros:  We have been waiting for this bat debut since early summer. My daughter loved her 2012 Xeno, but had issues with the 2013. When LS said they were going to make the 2014 more durable, my thinking was this is not going to have the same pop - WRONG! 1) Hot out of the wrapper 2) Totally agree that 2014 has the pop as the 2012 3) Daughter loves the graphic and color 4) Large sweetspot with no vibration. 5) Very well balance. As a Dad and ex baseball player, I also had to see for myself. I also hit outfield practice rotating several bats that the girls had and happy to report this finished very high! Keeping my fingers crossed on the durability. That the reason I gave it a 3.

Cons:  None at this time.

Pros:  Looks great! Plenty of pop, the ball explodes off the bat. Much better sweet spot on the 2014 Xeno. My daughter was using a 2011 Xeno, she got 3 good years out of the bat. Hopefully, the durability with the 2014 will be just as long.

Cons:  To early to tell

Does this xeno bat have a stiffer feel than the demarini cf7?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFF) are both going to be two-piece designed bats which allows for a whip like effect through the zone. Neither bat is going to feel as stiff as a one-piece designed bat would.

My daughter uses a 2014 Xeno 32/22 in the late spring and early fall seasons. Is there an aluminum bat with the same drop and balance that you would recommend for colder weather?

We don't recommend using 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN14-RR or any bat under 55 degree weather due to how dense the balls become and that effecting the durability of the bat.

When is it too cold to use the Xeno?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Louisville Slugger XENO (FPXN14-RR), in temperatures below 55°F (13°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

Description for 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN14-RR
New for 2014! Many of the best teams in college and high school softball were swinging the Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno this past year! That's because they learned the old fashioned way which bat was the hottest: through thousands of hours of practice and play. The dedication that Louisville Slugger put in to create the Xeno design really shines through in this year's model, and it all starts with S1iD Technology. This technology actually allows the barrel to be tuned to exceed the legal ball exit speed ratio. The catch is that a governor is placed inside that allows the barrel to flex to its MAXIMUM allowable performance from SWING 1. The Xeno is made from Louisville Slugger's innovative new Pure 360 Composite, yet due to the S1iD technology, it needs ABSOLUTELY ZERO BREAK-IN! The Xeno features an iST design that gives this bat a solid connection between the barrel and handle. iST provides players a bat with a solid feel and HUGE sweetspot, while absorbing vibrations from mis-hit balls before they reach the hands. With a tacky synthetic grip a 7/8 inch handle, the Xeno will give players absolute control at the plate. If you are a fastpitch player looking for THE top-of-the-line bat this season, look no further than the TPS Xeno! Louisville Slugger: In a Class Above Any Other! The Xeno is approved by ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA and ISF. This bat comes with a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
