Pros:  Solid stick...my daughter's first game with it, an 18U showcase (she is 15), she went 3 for 3 with seven RBI, including a grand-slam. Solid sweet spot, no vibration...HR never got more than 20 feet off the ground and left the yard, hit the berm and rolled through the parking lot. Just awesome.

Cons:  N/A

Pros:  Large sweet spot, good pop off the barrel. Can't say that it was "super hot" right out of the wrapper as some have described. The 2015 Mako was her go-to bat, and wanted to remain loyal to Easton, but the listed durability issues of the Ghost made us switch to a Louisville for the first time. DD is a college player, and although has not dramatically increased her BA, I am expecting a solid performance from this bat and she seems happy with it so far.

Cons:  The latest year model price is always a killer. Don't think it will change, but am always hopeful..

Is going from a -10 drop to a -9 drop a huge difference?

The difference between those two sizes will simply be an ounce. Whether that amount will be noticed will be dependent upon the player using the bat. In this case, the 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A9 does still have an ultra balanced swing weight that should allow for an easier transition to a -9 from a -10 model.

My daughter is 5 foot 9, around 170 lbs. I know she needs a 34" length, but would the -9 be heavy enough in Louisville LXT?

The proper weight of bat is hard to suggest without being able to see the player's swing mechanics and things like that. The 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A9 is well balanced, so if you aren't sure if the 34" -9 is heavy enough, you may want to look at the end loaded 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A9.

What is the difference between the LXT -9 and Easton Ghost -9? Is one end loaded?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A9 will feature a more balanced swing weight as opposed to the 2018 Easton Ghost Double Barrel -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP18GH9 which will feature an end loaded swing weight.

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
