There's a reason Louisville Slugger remains the #1 bat in fastpitch softball. Their attention to detail and drive to surpass so-called limits have resulted in this year's newest and most-innovative design yet: the Louisville Slugger XENO PLUS Fastpitch Softball bat! Like many elite players have grown accustomed to seeing in other XENO models, the barrel features the S1iD Inner Disc Barrel Technology with a Zero Friction Double Wall Design. This technology actually allows the barrel to be tuned to exceed the legal ball exit speed ratio. The trick is that a governor is placed inside that allows the barrel to flex to its MAXIMUM allowable performance from SWING 1. The XENO PLUS is made from Louisville Slugger's innovative newest Performance PLUS Composite material. This composite blend is lighter and more durable than previous versions, and with the S1iD Technology, it needs ABSOLUTELY ZERO BREAK-IN! The XENO PLUS also features a new iST Connection for a solid bond between handle and barrel. iST provides players a bat with a slightly stiffer feel for more efficient energy transfer on contact and a HUGE sweetspot; all while absorbing vibrations from mis-hit balls before they reach the player's hands. With a tacky synthetic grip a 7/8 inch handle, the XENO PLUS WTLFPXN160 will provide players with absolute control and confidence at the plate. Louisville Slugger: Passion In Your Heart; Power In Your Hands! The XENO PLUS is approved by all major fastpitch softball organizations (ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA and ISF). This bat comes with a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty against breakage. Free Shipping!
