I am a big 14 year old kid. I'm 6'1" and 210 lbs. I am wondering how balanced this bat is?

The Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID 2 BBCOR (BB12EX2) is a balanced bat.

out of the exogrid 2 the velo and the demarini versus which has the most pop?

Unfortunately, one is not proven to outperform the other. This EXOGRID 2 is a great bat but often has a heavier feel to players. The VELO would be the lightest-swinging bat out of the group. And the Versus would offer protection from sting with the two-piece design. All of these bats are BBCOR certified, so it's important to fit the style of the bat to your preference to get the best results.

In your opinion, which is best? The EXOGRID 2, Marucci Black 2 or the Easton S1? I'm searching for a new bad for high school baseball and have heard good things about each bat.

The Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID 2 BBCOR: BB12EX2 Adult, 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20, and 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 are all high performing bats. The Marucci Black 2 has an extended barrel and sweet spot. The Easton S1 will have more flex because of the two-piece composite design. The Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID 2 will be the stiffest and is best designed for a power hitter.

Compared to a bad BESR aluminum bat, how would this bat compare? I am switching to BBCOR.

The BBCOR standard is not near as hot as any of the BESR bats were. All BBCOR have to meet the BBCOR standard to be legal for high school and college, so the old bats will still seem better no matter which bat you had.

How does this bat do in the cold? It gets very cold where I live.

The Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID 2 BBCOR has an aluminum barrel, which will dent when temperatures get below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Unfortunately, no bat will do very well in temperatures much colder than 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Aluminum bats tend to dent, where composite bats will crack.

The main difference between the Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID 3: BB13EX Adult bat and the TPX EXOGRID 2: BB12EX2 Adult bat is the Flex-Band technology. The Exogrid 3 has a one inch graphite band that helps it meet the BBCOR standards. This also gives it one of the lowest swing weights in the BBCOR class.

What are the differences between this Exo and the new Exo 3?

The new Exogrid 3 features Louisville's new Flex-Band Technology. Rather than thickening the walls of bats to bring them in line with BBCOR standards, Louisville Slugger inserted a very light one inch wide graphite band. Not only does this flex-band give the Exogrid 3 one of the lowest swing weight available in its BBCOR hybrid class, it is small enough that the sweet spot feels just like high performing BESR bats of the past.

I just ordered this bat from this website and i play travel baseball. I practice every Saturday over the winter from 8-10. If I use this every practice in the cages will it ruin the pop?

If the Exo 2 is your game bat, than we do not recommend using it in the cage. Cage balls are built for durability and are very dense in design. Extended cage use can lead to dents in the barrel and a possible decline in performance. Use real baseballs in your cage work if possible.

What bat would be a better choice between a TPX Exo BBCOR or a Combat 52 Caliber BBCOR. My son is 5' 8" 135lbs. Currently using a H2 31/26 -5 / very fast bat speed.

Both the Louisville Exogrid2 and COMBAT 52 Caliber are decently balanced bats, but the Exogrid2 may have just a slightly more end-loaded feel. If your son has above average swing speed, either would be a good option, but the slightly more end-loaded feel of the Exogrid2 may be more beneficial to him.

My son is an incoming HS freshman. He's 6'1" 165 lbs. and a power hitter. Always had good success with TPX bats (used H2 models for last 4 years). Not sure whether to go with the Exogrid2 (BB12EX2) or the Z-1000 (BB12Z). Which bat would you recommend for him? As far as bat size is concerned ... I'm thinking size should be 34"-31oz (was using 32"-27oz last 2 yrs).

The Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID2 BBCOR: BB12EX2 is a one-piece fully aluminum bat with composite inserts in the handle and the the Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000 is a one-piece fully composite bat. Both bats will be excellent options for a power hitter like your son. We would recommend using a 33" 30 oz. If he has exceptional bat speed then you could consider a 34".

The 32" 29 oz. or the 33" 30 oz. would both be good fits for you. The 33" 30 oz. might be better if you are looking to use your Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID2 for more than one year since you will continue to grow.

So with bat do you think would last longer and would you recommend?

If you are a contact hitter with a lot of power, I would go with a two-piece composite. The two-piece will alloy some flex for swing speed and the composite will have some more pop. The only model that meets these specifications of the ones you mentioned is the 2013 DeMarini CF5.

Hi, I was just wondering if this would be a good choice for a 5'7, and 125 pound 13 year old, He's pretty strong for his age group (13-14). Also, he's batting with pitches at 60-70 mph. If this is not a good choice, could you tell me what is? Thanks.

If your son is a power hitter, then this bat would be a perfect option for him! It is a stiff one piece design that really suits power hitters. However if he is more of a contact or gap hitter I would suggest checking out a two piece bat that will offer more flex and be better suited for him. Some of our best selling two piece adult bats are the Easton S1 or S2, the DeMarini Voodoo, or the Marucci Black just to name a few.

I'm a contact hitter and want a extremely well balanced bat. Would you recommend this or the Easton S2? Also, do you know of anyother well balanced bats? Thanks!

Both bats are very balanced. If you are a contact hitter, the Easton S2 might better suit your needs. Most contact hitters prefer a two piece bat instead of a one piece, like the Exogrid 2. However, a contact hitter can still use a one piece bat, and if you prefer a one piece over a two piece, the Exogrid 2 is definitely a great bat!

Jennifer Expert

The S2 will be a little more balanced than the Exogrid2. The Easton S1, Easton S3 and Rawlings 5150 Velo are also great options that are very well balanced.

Would you recommend this bat or the Easton Omen BBCOR?

It depends on the type of hitter I'm making the recommendation for. For a strong power hitter, I would recommend the Exogrid2. For a player who doesn't hit for power, I would recommend the Omen.

I am looking to get either the exogrid2, the marucci black, and the demarini cf5. I am a singles doubles hitter. I have learned a lot about all the bats and they have all good pop. I am going into high school and want to know which of the bats would be best for me. It needs to have great pop well balanced, and needs to be durable. Thankyou.

All these bat meet the requirements and standards that you are looking for. The bat the is ooing to be the most balanced is going to be the Marucci Black. It is also going to help improve your swing speed and have more pop.

The Exogrid is going to be very comparable to the Marucci bats. Both use top of the line alloy.

I am a base hit hitter and honestly I am not strog at all... and I am thinking to buy a TPX EXO G 2 or a TPX Z-1000. wich one has more pop and wich one feels lighter(to have faster bat swing)? Wich one does have heavyer top? Which one has more chance to break? Wich one would you recommend? Are there any other BBCOR bats that feels pretty light?

I would advise you to look for a balanced, two-piece bat. We have several; like the Marucci Black, the Demarini Voodoo or CF5, and the Easton S2 or Surge. The bats you refer to are one piece. The Z1000 is more balanced, and the Exo Grid is a little more end loaded. Feel free to call us to further discuss your options

I am looking for a BBCOR bat for my 13 yr old son and can not decide between the TPX Exo, TPX Z1000, D Voodoo and the Rip It Prototype II...he is primarily a contact hitter with good pop to the alleys; how would you rank these bats based on this?

For a contact hitter I would recommend a two piece bat like the Voodoo. The Exogrid is going to be stiffer and better suited for a power hitter.

That can happen, though it is not a high perecentage that it does happen to. That is why Louisville offers the 1 yr Manufacturer's warranty.

How does this bat compare with baum bats, are they pretty much the same or are these still better?

The Baum Bat is completely unique and not like any other bat on the market. The Exogrid2 will be higher performing than the Baum, but the Baum may have an edge in durablity.

Honestly which bat is better, the Exogrid2 or the Marucci Cat5?

The Cat5 is a 1 piece all aluminum bat with with great pop. The Exogrid2 is a 1 piece with the alloy barrel and the carbon composite inserts in the handle. The Cat5 is balanced and the Exo is slightly end weighted for great power throw the swing.

I'm confused. "Todd" says a one-piece bat is more flexible. However, someone else asked a similar question for the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR and "John" says the opposite! Please explain. Thanks

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We don't have any Todd's here, so that answer must have been submitted by a customer or someone outside the company. It shouldn't have been posted. One-piece bats are stiffer than two-piece bats. One-piece bats will flex less and are often preferred by power hitters. Two-piece bats will offer more flex and are often preferred by contact hitters.

This is a BBCOR certified bat and it doesn't have quite as much pop as last years Exogrid. From feeback I've heard, this bat will be pretty much on par with the BBCOR Voodoo in terms of performance. I would also put this bat a notch above the 5150 BBCOR based on feedback from customers.
