Pros:  Awesome bat, with extreme pop. Compared to the easton stealth or demarini bats the xeno is basically a trampoline , and the bat itself isnt as "dense" as the stealth or CF4. The xeno's sound makes coaches turn their heads and really is an attention grabber. It also doesnt break at all. Ive had 4 2011 easton stealths which all cracked within 50 pitches... the xeno hasnt cracked with 1,000 pitches yet. highly recommend this bat.

Pros:  LOVE IT!!!! We bought our daughter the 2011 one and she adored it then we won the 2012 one. And OMG it is awesome!! She LOVES this bat. Love the sound, everyone knows what that crack means. Definitely worth paying the money.

Cons:  Everyone wants to use it, but that would be a plus.

Pros:  There isn't any sting when you hit with this bat, no matter where you hit it. That much is true. If you can manage to hit one just right you get a good hit with good distance, and I'm 5'4" and about 130lbs.

Cons:  The warranty requires that you KEEP YOUR RECEIPT, as well as keeping that little warranty paper that you get your bat with. Also, if you don't get the ball EXACTLY right on the sweet spot, the ball dies. Many times I have switched to my CF4 -9 during tournaments because it is more reliable if I don't get a great hold on the ball.

What is the difference between the 2011 and 2012 Xeno?

The 2012 Xeno and the 2013 are pretty similar in design. Both use the same LS-2X composite technology which is Louisville Slugger's top of the line composite.

Description for Louisville Slugger TPS XENO Composite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP12X
Last season, Louisville Slugger revolutionized the game by introducing the HOTTEST bat ever to hit fastpitch softball, the TPS XENO! The XENO received glowing reviews from players that used it, however it remained somewhat of a well-kept secret. Not anymore. Louisville Slugger has revamped the XENO with the expectation that this will be THE bat to own this season. The reason the XENO is so hot lies in what Louisville Slugger calls S1 iD 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 LS 2X Composite, yet due to the S1 iD 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 and 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 furthur than the TPS XENO! Louisville Slugger: Feel The Power! 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!
Customer Testimonial

Delivery time exceeded my expectations. I was delighted that my grand-daughter got the bat on her birthday. And free shipping was a really nice bonus!
