Pros:  Swung this bat in spring ball after my college bought some. Bat feels great. Very balanced. Having swung other BBCOR bats I would say this is the closest any have felt to a BESR bat. Very good pop. When you square the ball up bat feels great. I don't know if these will break in like old comp bats, but if it does watch out.

Cons:  $369.99 is a little steep, but so far I feel it has been worth every penny.

Cons:  pricey for bbcor

I am currently using a 32" 29 oz. Easton Redline. I'm 5'6" 130 lbs. contact hitter. Do u think I could swing this bat good in a 33" 30 oz. for next season?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 33" model in the Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000 BBCOR: BB12Z Adult bat. For further information on sizing, please visit our Bat Coach at

You are saying that there is a break-in period and Lousiville Slugger says that there is no need to break it in. Which one do I go with? I'm a bit confused.

Most composite bats do require a break-in period. The Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000 BBCOR: BB12Z Adult is the exception because it has Swing 1 inner Disc Technology which does not require a break-in.

Description for Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB12Z
The Z-1000 BBCOR bat uses unconventional and innovative technology to put the POP back in adult baseball bats! The TPS Z-1000 returns as one of the most revolutionary baseball bats on the market today! The Z-1000 employs S1 iD Technology that allows the barrel to flex to its maximum allowable performance level from SWING 1. Two inner discs are positioned inside the barrel at the sweetspot to stop the barrel from from flexing past the legal limit. For players, this means they really do get MAXIMUM performance allowable and a larger performing sweetspot. Louisville Slugger introduces a new composite structure to the Z-1000 called LS-2X Composite. This thinner, high-strength and lightweight graphite fiber blend allows for reduced wall thickness, creating better performance while maintaining durability. The thinner fibers have allowed Louisville Slugger to use more layers in the barrel for added strength, but with an overall wall thickness that is thinner. With an balanced swing weight, the Z-1000 is built for power and control. For added performance the Z-1000 has a Louisville Slugger end cap and a 31/32" tapered handle with a synthetic grip. Louisville Slugger: Intimidate at the Plate! The Z-1000 is BBCOR Certified and legal for high school and collegiate play. This bat comes with a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
