Pros: Light weight, incredible pop out of the wrapper, no vibrations. Overall great bat.
Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13AXL
it's a composite bat and the only louisville slugger two piece composite
Pros: Light weight, incredible pop out of the wrapper, no vibrations. Overall great bat.
Pros: Awesome bat. My 11 year old son can really hit distance with it, I can't wait until it gets broken-in.
Pros: I was a little apprehensive about buying this bat for my son since my experience with the H2 and his experience with the H2 and Catalyst haven't been all that great. I've been a Louisville Slugger guy all my life and love the Omaha's, Air Attacks ect from the mid 90's. This bat hits the mark. It is well balanced, has a nice sweet spot, gives no negative feedback (according to my son) and has a great grip. He is absolutely destroying the ball with this bat....a far cry from the struggles he had with the Catalyst last season. I bought this along with a CF6, but he has yet to take the CF6 out of the wrapper. This is a tremendous bargain at $119. The bat has restored my faith in Louisville Slugger so much that we're headed to Columbus OH on the 25th of this month to swing the 2014 Attack at National Demo Day.
Cons: Have yet to find one. The durability question will remain to be answered since we've only had the bat about a month.
Pros: This bat is for my 7 yr old and it is a great bat!! It has alot of pop and goes alot further than our other bats. Not a cheap bat but the results areso worth the money!
Pros: Bat was bought for my 12U Elite Travel ball player. The bat is hot out of the wrapper. The ball jumps off the barrel. No vibration, well balanced and a big sweet spot.
Cons: None so far
Pros: this is an awesome bat all around
Pros: I bought this bat for my 7 yr old to use in USSSA. It is a 28/18. We have always been a Easton XL1 fan, but I wanted him to swing a 2 3/4" instead of the 2 1/4. This is a well balanced bat and has amazing pop right out of the wrapper. The sweet spot appears to be a slightly smaller than the XL1, but for the first weekend to own it, I could not be more impressed. There is little to no vibration on miss hits. I can't wait to see this bat in action after a couple of months of batting practice. So far we are LOVING it...
Cons: It's price $300.00, but work every penny after the first deep shot.
Pros: My son is a smaller 10 year old and can't handle the heaver big barrel bats, so this is a perfect bat with great pop and awesome balance.
Pros: No sting, great pop if hit right on sweet spot. Great looking bat.
Cons: Seems to have a very small sweet spot.
Cons: I purchased 2 of these bats in the 31" model a month ago for the 2014 season....both bats broke within 1 week of purchase...we have played 9 games and maybe 5 practices...bats are junk...sent back to louisville slugger yesterday for replacements.
Pros: Low vibration
Cons: Small sweet spot. Broke after about 6 months. Had a catalyst and when it broke under warranty they sent this as a replacement. Took over 2 weeks for Louisville Slugger to even process the warranty after they got it. This was the middle of the season. Disappointing customer service and after breaking 2nd bat in just over a year we won't buy another Louisville Slugger.
Pros: when you square the baseball it feels great
Cons: I broke 2 of these bats in a very short time span. small sweetspot and no pop.
Pros: everything. nice sweet spot, no vibrations, and son has been ripping the ball. never thought a bat could be this good. simply amazed
Pros: Great bat! Really enjoy using a big barrel bat!!
Pros: My son liked the bat. it was a perfect fit for him.
Cons: It cracked after 1 month's use. My son is 9 but weighs same as a grown man and hits like one too. I've yet to find a bat that can hold up to his strength.
Pros: Hot out of the wrapper, amazing grip and feel, loaded with pop, huge sweetspot, and barrel.
Pros: it's a composite bat and the only louisville slugger two piece composite. it has to be a good bat for them to sell it.
Cons: parents who spoil their kids with whatever bat they want whenever they want, dont like it
Pros: Good pop for a while
Cons: Bat broke in 2 weeks,don't buy this bat
Pros: This bat has great pop with little or no vibration. My son has yet to hit with it during a game but has it broke in, hitting hundreds of balls in the batting cage. The ball just jumps of this bat and can't wait till game time. 11U baseball
Pros: Seemed to have pretty good pop initially. Looks great.
Cons: 6 kids in our Select league have this same bat. 5 of the 6 bats have cracked or had small chunks of the metal knocked off the bats. All have returned. Just returned mine, going to try the Vertex and see if it holds up better. This bat also has a VERY small sweet spot.
Pros: none of my teammates have ever heard of it!!!!!!
Cons: the mako and the velo are the way to go.
Pros: great graphics, good looking bat
Cons: my son is a pretty good hitter and has used LS almost exclusively ever since the old blue catalyst bat ruled the market 5 or 6 years ago. This bat is NO blue catalyst bat! LS calls this a "balanced bat" yet my son says that it has a very end loaded feel to it. The bat does have a micro sweet spot. To be fair my son went from a 31" -10 to a 32" -10 but I wouldn't think that would throw off his swing as much as this bat does. Bottom line...this bat is a miss for LS. I will eat the $$$ this time and move on to the DM CF5 or combat B-4.
Pros: The bat has a lot of pop, and is durable
Cons: My son prefers a very balanced bat. I don't know if it is the bigger barrel, the end loading, or what, but my son's bat speed is much slower with this bat. My son is a small framed 13 year old who normally is a very good hitter. He went two tournaments with this bat and absolutely couldn't hit. He switched back to his Omaha of the same weight and length and went 3 for 3 in the championship game. He absolutely hates this bat. Was a waste of money for us.
Got a question about the Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13AXL ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
Is this bat, or could you help by telling what bats made by Louisville like this one are legal for 9u travel?
Unfortunately, travel ball programs do not have a universal rule set in place when it comes to bats like the Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL13AXL) if you could ask a coach or league official what rules they have about barrel diameter and barrel material, we may be able to make a more accurate ruling.
My son is playing U9 kid pitch travel. He has an aggressive swing; he is currently using a 27" 17 oz. Easton V12. Do you think a 29" 19 oz. is too much jump for him or should he stick with the 28" 18 oz. in this bat? Will there be a big performance difference between this and the 2014 attack XL?
There are some key differences between the Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL13AXL) and the 2014 model. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Attack (SLAT14-RX) uses flex bend technology for a low swing weight and a huge sweet spot. The new three-piece Tru-3 technology also helps reduce the vibration to the handle. With regard to sizing, that will be a matter of preference. Generally, you want to swing the longest and heaviest bat that you can comfortably and consistently control. If he did well with the 27" model, there is nothing to say that he couldn't make the jump to a 29" comfortably. Ultimately, it will come down to his overall strength as well as bat speed.
Does this bat need rolled?
Composite bats such as the Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL (SL13AXL) should never bee rolled. This is illegal and will also void the warranty. The best way to break-in a bat is to take 100-200 swings off a tee or soft toss. Rotate the barrel 1/4" each swing.
Can this bat be used in Pony League, Mustang division?
The Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL (SL13AXL) would not be legal in the Pony League, Mustang Division because it has a 2 3/4" barrel. In the Mustang Division, only bats with 2 1/4"-2 5/8" barrel diameter are allowed.
Is the 27" 17 oz. legal for 7U travel USSSA travel play?
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL (SL13AXL) is legal in USSSA.
Is this bat a full composite bat? Also, would you recommend it for a 10 year old boy, who plays on a 10U team?
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL (SL13AXL) is a two-piece fully composite. It would be a good choice for a 10 year old.
Is it legal in a 10U USSSA softball league?
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL: SL13AXL Senior League would not be approved for a fastpitch softball league. For fastpitch softball, you would need a bat that was stamped with the USSSA BPF 1.20 stamp instead of the 1.15 stamp on this bat. Also, the barrel diameter is too large.

If your Youth Attack that you bought when it was $200 broke, could you trade it in for this bat while adding in $50 more since it was $200?

My son is going to play travel ball and is allowed to use a 2 3/4" bat, but I have heard that the Easton S1 Senior League is better but is only 2 5/8". Is there a big difference?
Both the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL: Senior League and the 2013 Easton S1: Senior League are great bats. I would check in to how long he can use the 2 3/4" barrel. If it is longer than a year I would go with the 2 3/4". You wouldn't want to purchase the smaller diameter after just a short while.
Does the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL: SL13AXL Senior League have the same S1 iD Technology as the TPX Z-1000?
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL: SL13AXL Senior League does not feature S1 iD Technology.
What is the temperature limits on these bats? Are there bat warmers that make these bats usable in the lower temps?
You should use caution when temperatures are below 55 degrees. This does not mean you can't use the bat, you just need to limit the number of overall hits on it. Lower temperatures actually effect the hardness of the core of the baseball, not that bat. There is no hard evidence that says bat sleeves and warmers protect the bat from cracking in colder weather.
Is this bat made in a -9 model?
Unfortunately, the Louisville Slugger Attack is not produced in a -9 model.
How is the balance of the Attack XL SL13AXL (-10) compared to the Exogrid SL13EX (-9)? Which is more balanced for a contact hitter? Thanks.
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL: SL13AXL Senior League bat is a two-piece full composite design. Full composite bats are typically lighter in weight and more balanced.

Do you have to break in this bat for the performance?
Yes, the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Attack XL: SL13AXL Senior League bat will require a period of break-in. It will be a two-piece composite designed bat. 100-200 swings off of a hitting tee or soft toss while rotating the barrel should work fine.
