Pros:  Great feel and very balanced. My 11 year old changed from an S3 to the Vertex last week and this bat is hot from day one. There is by far the best bat we have owned.

Cons:  We didn't have this a year ago.

Would you compare this bat to the Easton MAKO?

The Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex XL (SL13VXL) and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) are both very high performing bats. The MAKO will have a slightly longer barrel, but will require a break-in. The Vertex will be game ready. The two-piece design of both bats is ideal for a contact hitter.

Can you use the Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex in Babe Ruth?

The Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex model that is approved for Babe Ruth league play would be the Youth model (YB13V). Here is a link to that bat:

My son is a typical No. 2 hitter (good contact hitter with speed, but no real HR power). He struggled with bat drag using the Easton XL3. I am trying to find a good balanced bat that would suit the type of hitter he tends to be. Would he be better off with the TPX Vertex XL or the COMbat B4 Portent XL? Thanks.

The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex XL: SL13VXL Senior League is a great option for a contact hitter. The balanced, two-piece design is best for a contact hitter. One-piece bats like the Easton XL3 and the COMBAT B4 Portent are better for a power hitter.

Description for Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13VXL
New for 2013! The best new bat to hit the market last season is back with a new look and same game-changing performance! The Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex is a true testament to Louisville Slugger's commitment to improving their bats to allow players hit to the best of their ability. The Vertex design utilizes Louisville Slugger's LS-2X Composite which uses thinner high-strength and lightweight graphite fibers to create the optimal feeling handle. These thinner fibers allow for more layers, giving the Vertex added stiffness and durability. The handle of the Vertex is actually stiffer than the EXOGRID which allows more barrel flex, resulting in maximum trampoline effect and, ultimately, greater performance! The barrel of the Vertex is constructed using AC21 Scandium Alloy. Combined with composite materials, the AC21 Scandium Alloy ensures thinner walls with outstanding durability and unmatched performance. The Vertex has a synthetic cushioned grip on the 7/8 inch standard handle to give players an unbeatable feeling of confidence when they step up to the plate. Louisville Slugger: Be the Best, or Swing the Rest! The Vertex features the USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp and is legal for play in 2012 and beyond! It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
Customer Testimonial

WOW! My bats arrived a full two days before I expected them. I am more than happy with customer service. I have told all of my teammates about your site. I ordered. They came. I could not be happier with the experience. I won't buy another bat at a local store.
