Pros:  Pop- I dont think it comes out of the box with as much POP as our old 2014 Xeno, but hopefully it will get hotter with more hits. It also has a different sound than the 2013 & 2014 Xeno. General Feel - The bat has a good feel to it, also has a rough texture over the barrel of the bat (Not sure of exact purpose or benefit of this) Durabulity - Brand New cant answer this one.. Graphics- It is a sharp looking bat, still new not sure how they hold up..

Cons:  Thought it might be a little hotter out of the box and does not have that 2013 & 2014 Xeno Sound.. Hopefully it will get hotter with more hits.. I am also comparing it to a broken in 2014 Xeno Bat.. We like Xeno bat this is our 3rd one..( 2013, 2014, 2016 models)

Pros:  DD has has the CF5, and the Mako and I talked her into this bat and she loves it. Has had it one month and she said the other bats she had is no comparison, harder line drives and hit her 1st HR in a big tournament, she's already told me her next bat is another Xeno

Cons:  Half the team wants to use it

Cons:  None. didnt buy because of the graphics so thats not important.

Pros:  My daughtet has swung the CF5 -7 and then a 2006 Easton Synergy which she fell in love with but Easton pulled this bat off the ASA certified bats to use list. Great sound and pop out of the box. Daughter likes it

Cons:  Paint is chipping off. Going to keep an eye out for possible cracks. Fingers crossed Too early to judge duralbilty

Cons:  Nothing at the moment

Pros:  When functioning has good pop.

Cons:  We have a 2016 Xeno Plus -11, we use to have a 2015 Xeno -11. The 2015 Xeno -11 was returned because the end cap started coming off after about 6-7 months of use. The replacement they sent and made sure that we understood this was our 1 Bat warranty replacement was a 2016 Xeno Plus -11. Well we have used it about 8 months and the 2 piece construction sounds like it has started coming apart. You can slap it in your hand and hear a tink sound and the bat end will move a little. She plays year round with High School and Select so she puts it to use. But as of present the bat can not handle the work load. Since I have used my one bat warranty I can not get a defective product replaced. So moral of the story, Rethink your purchase of a Xeno bat product if your daughter plays year round. They can not handle the work load.

Cons:  Bat broke at the joint after hitting approximately 50-75 balls. The bat was replaced by Louisville Slugger promptly but missed 2 tournaments without the bat. We just received replacement a few days ago and have hit once with it. Good pop and we will use it this weekend in a tournament.

Pros:  Just received my daughters Xeno Plus. Ordering was easy if you know what your looking for. Shipping was fast, had no issues. She used her bat straight out of the wrapper at her game today ..... it was AMAZING! LITERALLY TURNED HEADS WITH EACH HIT! she says her hands dont shake like with other bats and shes able to grip it better with a more solid Hit and Nice POP on contact.

Cons:  NONE!!!!!!

Pros:   1st time buyer of a Louisville Slugger Xeno bat, my daughter loves this bat. She had an excellent experience, nice pop to the bat, a few hits and a homerun playing Varsity. She made a comment that is light and easier to manage. Excellent choice for trying a different brand.

Cons:  Too new to judge but I hope the paint coat maintains, I read some do chip off. I will keep my fingers crossed that it will not chip too soon.

Pros:  Good pop, minimal vibration, pretty colors

Cons:  This 2016 bat was a warranty replacement for the black/purple 2014 model, which had the end cap separating from the barrel after eleven months of use. Yesterday, my daughter's bat was pulled prior to the start of a CIF playoff game yet again for a separating end cap, this time after only six months of use. With qualifier and tournament season approaching, we now have to find a bat that we can depend on to last.

Pros:  My Daughter 5'9" about 150lbs and is the #4 hitter and wanted a 34" bat for outside pitches. Since she has made the switch she has hit 3 home runs, 3 triples, 4 doubles and countless singles. She loves the feel and nobody touches her bat on the team ;-)

Cons:  No cons to this point. We have been using for about a month and my daughter loves. it.

My daughter is 4'8" and 70 lbs. She is a good hitter, but doesn't always have a lot of power. What are the differences between the XENO and LXT? Which would you recommend?

I would recommend getting a fastpitch softball bat in the 30" length. This 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) has been an excellent bat for a number of years. It will have your two-piece, all-composite design and a balanced swing weight. The LXT will feature the same material, but it also features an advanced connection point that allows for more barrel flex at contact and limits the vibration that gets to a player's hands on a miss-hit. If you want the model that technically has the most technology, I would suggest an LXT. However, the XENO can be bought for slightly less money and I think it has the potential to perform as well as the LXT.

My daughter is 5'6" and about 130 lbs. What bat and size would you recommend for her? She has been a power hitter thus far and most go to the fence. Looking for that little extra to get them over.

Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 in a 33/23.

My 11 year old daughter is 4'9" and weighs 90lbs. She currently has the 30/20 Xeno (2015 model). What would your recommend for her (i.e. length/weight and Xeno or LXT)?

I would suggest the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 in a 31" 21oz. size based on her height and weight and the fact that she is used to the feel of the XENO.

Do these bats need to be broken in or are they ready to use? I've heard you need to break them in by hitting 1/2 speed and rotating but have also heard they are ready as soon as you pick it up.

The 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 will still require a break in period of roughly 150-200 swings rotating the barrel roughly a 1/4" after each swing. A player can break this bat in during soft toss and tee work drills and they do not have to use a full swing to accomplish the break in (as far as not needing to go at game speed on each swing).

Do these bats have a tendency to break or crack over time?

While any bat can break or crack at any time, the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 is not more susceptible to it than any other bat.

Just bought the 2016 XENO Plus for my daughter and took a few hits yesterday and it seemed very hard with no "pop". Does it take time to break-in and also, what is the best approach for this?

Although, it is not always necessary, some players that get this 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) note that a break-in was needed to get the bat to game-ready level. I would recommend dedicating a couple days to hitting in the cage and off the tee before taking it to a game and expecting to see the highest level of performance.

My daughter is 9 years old, weighs 92 lbs and is 4'4". Would this be a good bat for her?

Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 in a 30 inch 20 ounce model. If you feel the drop 10 length-to-weight ratio is too much then it would be wise to look into a drop 11.

I have a 5', 115 lb power hitter. There are a few XENOs on here. What's the difference on them?

Based upon your player's height and weight, we would recommend getting an option of this 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) in the 31" length. I would recommend getting a 31" option of this bat as long as you feel the 21 oz weight will be good for your player as a power hitter (all the XENOs will be built the same with exception to the length-to-weight ratio offered on each model).

Based on your daughter's height and weight, I would recommend that your daughter swing a 32" length. That would be a 32" 22 oz. size in this particular model of the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160.

Based on her height and weight I would suggest a 33" or 34" bat and I would recommend sticking with the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) if that is what she is currently swinging.

My daughter is 12 years old, 5'10" and 190 lbs. She currently has a 32/21. She did some BP with a 34/24 and came around on it OK, but I'm still concerned that's a big jump. I'd like for her to be able to use this next bat for more than a year. What would you recommend?

Even though the 34"/24 oz model seems a little large right now, that is the size I would suggest for your player if you are considering this 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160). Based upon her height and weight, the 34"/24 oz option will give her the bat that has the best potential to last the longest (if 34"/24 oz scares you too much, then 33"/23 oz would be my other suggestion).

Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would still recommend that she swing a 31" length. However, she is awfully close to the 31"/32" line. If her bat speed is really quick, then she should be able to move up to the 32" length with no problem.

It is hard for me to recommend the weight of a bat that is right for your player as that will vary depending upon her personal preference, hitting style, and strength.

I just got my daughter the 2016 XENO Plus. What is the average break in time for these bats?

Here at JustBats, we recommend that the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 go through a break-in period of about 150-200 swings either off of a tee or by hand toss with about a 1/4" rotation of the barrel after each swing. Then, after those 150-200 swings, your XENO Plus should be full broken in.

Which is better for cold weather, the 2016 Xeno or LXT?

Both the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN160 and the 2016 Louisville Slugger LXT Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX160 are made from composite materials. With that said, neither will be better than the other when it comes to colder weather. Typically, an alloy bat will hold up better in colder temperatures than composite bats.

I am a 12 year old who plays travel softball and I have a DeMarini CF7. My CF7 is losing its pop and I am looking into Louisville Slugger. What is the difference between the 2016 Xeno Plus and the 2016 LXT Plus?

The 2016 Louisville Slugger LXT Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX160) and the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) fastpitch bats share many similarities, but the LXT PLUS offers an even lighter swing weight with its TRU3 Three-Piece Connection Technology that also eliminates more sting and vibration that may be created on off-center hits. Less vibration means more of that energy is transferred to the ball on contact for extreme performance.

Why do you all not have a 33 inch 22 ounce?

The 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) is a -10 length to weight ratio so a 33 inch size will weigh 23 ounces by design. The model you would want to look at for a 33 inch 22 ounce would be the -11 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN161).

Is this bat good for a power hitter or is the LXT more for a power hitter?

The stiffer flex of the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) would possibly make it a better model for a power hitter type player compared to the more flexible 2016 Louisville Slugger LXT Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX160) but both would be very nice options that would work for a power hitting player.

Is this bat hot right out of the wrapper?

Yes, the 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN160) will need 150-200 swings, rotating at a 1/4 of an inch on each swing. We recommend these swings are off of a tee.

About Louisville Slugger
Louisville Slugger

Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport. In many ways, the storied 130+ year history of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat began in the talented hands of 17-year-old John A. "Bud" Hillerich. Back in the 1880s, Bud was working at his father's woodworking shop in Louisville, Kentucky. Legend has it that Bud, a lover of baseball and a player himself, slipped away from work one afternoon in 1884 to watch Louisville's major league team, the Louisville Eclipse.

Description for 2016 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat
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!
