Pros:  HUGE sweet spot. I used this bat without breaking it in and crushed a stand up double in my first at bat with it. Super balanced. Awesome feel.

Cons:  Price. But it's worth it.

Pros:  durable, has pop, hot out of the box, very well balanced. My daughter is 12, 5’5” weighs 135 - 140. She has been swinging the Louiville Slugger Xeno Plus 33 in 22 oz. -11 2016 model. The bat has been excellent, is still in great shape, and still has great pop. I just bought her the Louiville Slugger LXT 33 in 22 oz. -11 2018 model. I want her to experience both bats. I also read the reviews where it should help with bat speed. My daughter is excited and ready to usenit in a game. Our first tournament is March 3, can’t wait to see how she does with it. So far in practice it has been great.

Cons:  none

My daughter is almost 15 years old and weighs around 130 pounds. She has been using an LXT 32"/22 oz. (-10) for about a year and a half. Would it be a drastic change if she would go to a 33"/22 oz. (-11)?

I don't think moving from a 32/22 to a 33/22 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A11 would be a difficult transition at all. If the 22 oz. weight is the max weight she can handle, but needs a little more coverage, that would be the way to go.

I have a friend that is 14 years old (about to turn 15), 5'2 and about 130lbs. What size bat would be the best fit?

Based on the player's age, height and weight, I would recommend the 32"/21 oz. size of the 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPLX18A11).

Are there significant differences between the 2018 & 2017 LXT?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A11 features a new Ultra Lightweight X-Cap which helps increase swing speed and the barrel length. Otherwise the two bats are very similar besides the graphics.

What's the difference in the drops for Louisville slugger LXT?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT comes in a drop 8, 9, 10, and 11. The drop in the difference between the length and weight. So the 30" -10 would weigh 20 ounces and the 30" -8 would weigh 22 ounces.

My daughter is 14 yrs old, 5'2" and 160 lbs. She has been using a 31"/21 oz (-10). Do I need get her a bigger bat and what would you suggest?

Based upon your player's height and weight, our general suggestion would be to get a bat in the 33" length. If you are a little nervous about making the move to a 33" length bat, you could also go with a 32" model. However, I think she is probably ready for a move to something a little longer. If you got her this 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPLX18A11) in the 32" length, it would be the same the 21 oz weight as her current bat. If you wanted a bat that could be bought in the 32"/22 oz size, I might recommend looking to the 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPLX18A10).

My daughter is 10 years old. She has a -13 bat now and is looking for a new bat. Would this bat be too big of a jump for her?

For most 10 year old fastpitch players, we are suggesting to get a bat with a 30" length to it. Generally speaking, I think that your player could use a model of this 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPLX18A11) in the 30"/19 oz size. However, I think that moving to a bat in that size will present a bit of an adjustment period for your player when moving from a -13 size bat.

My daughter is currently swinging a DeMarini Vendetta 30/20 and the bat has started to sound funny like it's about to break so we are looking to upgrade to the new 2018 Louisville slugger lxt -11. She is 12 and weighs 120 lbs and is 4ft 11". Which size would be better the 30/19 or 31/20?

Based on her height and weight we would recommend the 31"/20 ounce 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPLX18A11).

(1) Is the barrel on the 33"/23 oz and 32"/22 oz LXT the same length? (2) From where does the -11 lose the extra ounce? If it is from the handle, doesn't that change the balance of the bat?

(1) The 33" model of the 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPLX18A11) will have the longer barrel length due to it being a longer bat overall. (2) Unfortunately, Slugger does not provide the information about the location from where the extra ounce is taken on the -11 LXT. However, the -11 LXT is still a balanced feeling bat.

How does the 2018 version of this bat differ than the 2017 version? What makes it better?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A11 features the new ultra lightweight X-Cap which helps to increase swing speed and increases barrel length.

What is the difference between the 2017 and 2018 models?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPLX18A11) will feature a new X-Cap that allows the barrel length to be longer and the bat to swung just as fast as the 2017 LXT. That is going to be the big difference between the 2 year models.

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. Bud was in the stands as the team's star, P.... read more
