Pros:  Hot out of the wrapper! Took hits that were just hitting the grass to almost hitting the fence!

Cons:  Bought it 3/11/13 and it broke today 4/23/13. For $300 I expected this bat to last at least 2 seasons. Extremely disappointed in the durability!!!! This bat has been discontinued so we'll see how the warranty is going to work....

Pros:  It hits almost as hard as the 201w

Cons:  I had my bat for four weeks (about thirteen games including two tournaments, averaging three at bats a game so no more than thirty-nine at bats) and my bat broke in half hitting the pitcher at my first plate appearance so the durability of the bat is not as high as the old xeno from 2012 (which lasted me for a full season before cracking but never fully breaking in half

Pros:  Since we bought our first, the 2011 Xeno, we've been extremely pleased with the line. After a very successful year with the Xeno 2012, we moved up to the onex last year. My daughter hit a ball 40 feet further than her previous 220 ft shots. She got her first hit as varsity player with the 2013 replacement for the onex. She absolutely did not want to give up the onex. The bat endured repeated poundings by her and a friend without breaking. She's very happy with the 2013 Xeno. Her 34" 26oz bat swings much lighter and feels propely balanced. There's no vibration even when the temps drop near the low temp end for the bat. She loves the sound. She's looking forward to testing the 2014 Onex when she gets one this July 2013!!! We can't to see what inovations it will bring to the games. It will be her fifth bat.

Cons:  None!!!

Pros:  This bat has amazing pop and has a large sweet spot. The "breaking glass" sound the bat makes is sure to turn heads.

Pros:  Great bat! My daughter is 16. She's a power hitter and usually gets some good hits. The bat was good to go right out of the box. She loves the pop and hit three home runs the first weekend she used it!

Cons:  The only thing I would change is the white grip. It was dirty and dingy after a couple uses.

Pros:  This bat is amazing. I was first skeptical of louisville slugger after having my oneX recalled when I saw nothing wrong with the bat I was smacking home runs left and right and had no problem. This bat proved it was just as good and I highly recommend getting it. I got this bat as a replacement for free from the oneX. Cant wait to get my free xeno and oneX 2014

Pros:  Hot out of the box, attractive graphics. My 13 year old had 2 of the 2012 models in 32" 22 oz. & 33" 23 oz. Lots of power, lots of bat speed, lots of batting practice, and lots of games on them. Love the product and results.

Cons:  Bought a 2013 model on Saturday Feb. 23, broke in half on second at bat Sunday the 24th. Sent bat back on Feb 27 and got a receipt of delivery on March 1. On March 9, got a "denied" delivery notice. Never received packaging or bat back. Now no one wants to respond at all. Had bat for less than 24 hrs before it broke, going into the third month waiting for replacement.

Pros:  My daughter swung this bat "TWICE"...the first swing was a hard single. Her next at bat with the bases loaded, she swung the bat for the second time and thinking we had an extra base hit, it broke in half! No consolation to the team or my daughter! We had high hopes for it after having great success with the first Xeno. :(

Pros:  Got this bat after the OneX which I loved as much as my daughter, it was recalled. My daughter is 9. She is 5' tall but only about 80 lbs. Small frame. She hit the top of the 200' fence and almost went over. This bat is Hot but I believe the OneX would have been 20 yards over the fence. Still yet for a 9 year old to hit the top of a high school fence shows the pop on this bat.

Cons:  None.

Pros:  I purchased the 2013 -10 XENO due to my 8 Year Old daughters 2012 -11 CF5 busted. The XENO has great POP and the attention getting sound of a XENO.

Cons:  Bat is not Nearly as balanced as a CF5, it has more of an End-Load Feel. This Bat is awesome, but will require some work to get back to a smooth Swing. Its all about Wrist Strength with the smaller girls with Bats that are not "Balanced".

Pros:  This an update on the Xeno. I am purchasing a second bat for my daughter. This time around she is getting a -9 (34/25), at her request. She used her last one approximately 2 years and a couple odd months,before she broke it during a game. She will not use any other bat except the Xeno. I would like to again advise parents, do not purchase this bat unless your daughter is playing at high school/elite level. You'll be wasting your time and money doing this. My daughter has been using composites like this for 5 years now. I'll be the first one to tell you, I wasted my time and money going this route. It wasn't till she started getting lessons at 14 that things sunk in and she started understanding the benefits of the Xeno.

Pros:  Nice pop from the start Nice balance and "feel"

Pros:  Nothing as hot as this right out of the wrapper. It is not, contrary to popular opinion, 100% composite. This bat has alloy discs which is why it doesnt take any break in time. It also has the most flex of any bat on the market period. Basically a one piece that's been cut in half and sealed together with rubber. I've never swung anything so responsive. This bat will give your girl confidence, those first at bats will blow your mind...

Cons:  Most expensive half-a-season bat you'll ever buy. It breaks. It breaks it breaks. It also is not "balanced". Part of the key to the power of this bat is that the weight is not evenly distributed. Gives even girls like me, who are mostly just contact hitters, a lot of extra "umph". So, not balanced, super breakable, tends to rattle, and die.

Pros:  I love the "pop" that this bat makes. It surly does turn heads. I swing a 25 ounce. It feels like I am swinging at nothing at all. There is no vibration when I hit the ball at the end of the bat.

Cons:  In November of 2012 I got the 2012 version of the Xeno. In December I traded it in for a different weight, and because they didn't make the 2012 anymore they gave me a 2013. I used the bat for 2 games (about 8 at Bats) and it started to rattle. I got through the season with it. Then I sent it back to get replaced.I got it back in September. I got a new 2013 bat and didn't take it out of the wrapper till January of 2014. I went to an inside Softball practice and at my second practice the bat is now bent at close to a 45 degree angle, not broken, but bent. Time for a new bat…. again!

Pros:  It has a nice pop and sound when the ball hits the bat. I'm able to get nice base hits with it also. The sound of the bat is great! Even my team mates on my travel, rec, and high school team ask to use it.

Cons:  It's starting to chip and rattle. I think something on the inside of the bat broke and it rattles. The sweet spot and barrel of the the bat are starting to get loose for the handle of the bat, I;m scared it's going to break in half when I'm up to bat in a tournament.

Pros:  Bat has the same Xeno cracking sound as the previous years. I personally like it. The bat was hot right out of the wrapper. The ball flies off this thing. My daughter loves it and all the kids with the black Xenos are jealous now cause they love the new design.

Pros:  I researched composite bats for 3 months, before buying my daughters third bat since she was 13. By far this is the best bat she ever had. I have taken her to the bat wars events by the manufacturers, where she has tried 15-20 bats. This is by far the best bat she has ever swung. If your daughter is still playing rec ball, this is not the bat for her. The swing is the key to this bat, if the daughter is not taking lessons then you're wasting your money on this type of bat. To get the most out of this bat, the player must have a disciplined, consistent swing. The older and bigger your daughter is, the better this bat is for her. It is more suited for older, bigger players. The example is my daughter, who is 16 and 5' 9' tall weighing 129 lbs. She swings the biggest, heaviest bat Louisville makes for this model. Very pricey bat. Bless you parents who back your daughters with this type of equipment. I hope this helps in your decision.

Cons:  None.
