Description

The newest addition to Louisville Slugger's fastpitch lineup has arrived! The PXT X18 series is ready to set itself apart as one of the best softball bats in the game. Cutting edge technologies, innovative features, and memorable cosmetics combine to forge these never before seen, 100% composite fastpitch bats. It all starts with the revolutionary PWR STAX technology which evenly disburses the softball load on contact across the entire surface of the barrel for a powerful performance. With a multi-layered construction, the PXT is specifically designed to transform player generated energy into ridiculous results right out of the wrapper. Louisville Slugger has also manufactured the new lightweight X-Cap that significantly increases swing speed, lengthens the barrel, and creates a larger sweet spot than ever before. These three-piece, composite softball bats are brought together by the patented TRU3 connection piece that helps eliminate vibration while offering a luxurious feel on contact. As if that isn't enough, a premium X-Grip comes pre-wrapped around the standard 7/8 inch fastpitch handle to provide a medium tack touch with unmatched comfort. Louisville Slugger: The Most Trusted Name In Fastpitch!

This model, the Louisville Slugger PXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPPX18A10), features a popular drop 10 length to weight ratio, a standard 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter, and a power balanced swing weight that is recommended for elite hitters. Before you buy, know that the PXT is approved for play in USSSA, ASA, NSA, ISA, and ISF.

Not impressed so far... Mason parent

Pros: Good looking graphics

Cons: Appears to have very little pop out of the wrapper. Bat also feels heavier than the 2017 LXT 31/21 that my daughter has been swinging. And yes both are the same advertised weight. I think that I am going to return if (if I can) and go buy another 2016 or 2017 LXT...very disappointed. I have purchased 6 Louisville Sluggers (Xeno and LXT) and this one appears to be the weakest of the bunch.

Great Bat! CoachP53 coach

Pros: The new PXT from slugger is not only a beautiful product, but it has the performance to back it up. This bat, as stated, is designed for elite players that can generate enough bat speed to get the most out of this new barrel design. Players on my daughters team range from speedy slappers, to on base liners, to power hitters. The players who hit for power, my daughter included, are seeing greater distance out of this product compared with their LXT and Xeno models. Average bat speed hitters are seeing equal performance during tee work, but at game speeds are really seeing this bat open up. The design of this bat isn't going to yield amazing results when hitting off a tee or doing front toss drills...this bat shows its true glory when the ball starts coming in hot, just like in a game. I have no doubt this product will be a winner this year!

Cons: Softer swinging players on our team are not getting as much performance as our stronger hitters.

Great Bat E22 parent

Pros: Bought this bat a few weeks ago. At first we thought there may be a problem because we expected the same "out of the wrapper" explosion that we had from the 2016 LXT. There is a break in period. My daughter is a power hitter and just put her 4th over the fence this past weekend since she started hitting with this bat and we are just now starting to hear a consistent pop/crack instead of a dull thud. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because, as with her LXT, I feel the wrap on the handle should be higher quality. The PXT is already showing wear and she's only had it a short time. Granted, she doesn't use batting gloves so maybe holding it a bit tighter is causing some of the problem, but still, for the price, I feel a higher quality wrap should be used. Other than that very small issue, the bat is awesome!! Highly recommend!!

Cons: Grip

Great Purchase Mike M coach

Pros: Daughter is 12yrs old and has been working with a batting coach. From the start we could hear and she could feel the difference. The PXT has great pop and a large sweet spot. There is a noticeable difference in the speed of the ball off her bat and we are very much looking forward to the fall season with the PXT bat. After her first game with the new bat, multiple parents/players were asking to borrow her bat because they could notice the difference in the exit speed of the ball.

Cons: We were looking for a -11 because of her size, but went with the -10 and just having her choke up and keep working on her strength. Otherwise we are very happy with the PXT.

Major Improvement EGLD97 parent

Pros: Using the PXT, my daughter was able to take her year over year slugging % from .349 to .568 Perfect weight and performance for her swing and body size. Once broken in properly, it has a lot of pop! Overall, very happy with this bat!!

Cons: Bat performance is not there out of the wrapper. This bat requires a significant amount of break in to get it game ready. Not sure why they can't put a quality grip on a $400 bat? Grip wore out quickly and had to be replaced.

Top Performer CoachMiner555 coach

Pros: We tested this bat with a bunch of other sluggers, demarinis, Ghost and Quattros and this was our favorite performer. All bats were provided by our local dealer and were fully broken in. Sound wise this thing had a great ring to it and feel wise it was the best reducer of sting in the group. Majority of our girls went with this bat with a few opting for the -11 deMarini and one girl liked the Ghost. Our team is a Slugger team and that is what we see at most fields, so you know it's good.

Cons: none

Dad Todd parent

Pros: Good looking bat

Cons: My daughter is 16 and a power hitter and has always loved her LXT bats. She has broke 3 of them mainly from over use. She tried the PXT and does not like it. Went back to LXT. We are going to sell the PXT.

Not a safe purchase Dan coach

Pros: Great looking bat (Looks don't improve average or power). It has good feel. Pop is pro and con. Great pop if you hit the small sweet spot.

Cons: Very inconsistent bat to bat. Im a fairly high level hitting coach. I have had 4 different players in with this bat and all 4 bats acted completely different. One completely dead, one mostly dead the shattered, 2 with great pop on a tiny sweet spot. If you hit the sweet spot it will go a long ways but hard to find it. For the money stick with the safer LXT, Xeno, or go to Demarini CF series.

Pros: The bat has amazing pop I've been swinging it in practice and it sounds great, overall it's a good choice of purchase.

Cons: Bat seems a little bit heavier than other bats I've used in the past, you have to be a strong hitter the weaker hitters will not be able to drive as easy.

Power Hitters Only S. St. Martin Parent

Pros: This is an outstanding bat for a power hitter. Since purchase date, my daughter has approximately 13 out of the park homeruns between scrimmages and practices. Please ask yourself if the person this bat is intended for is a power hitter. If they're not I recommend the Xeno. Last year we had great results with the Louisville Slugger Xeno, however, as she grows taller(5'11) and stronger we adjust.

Cons: No cons!

No Pop Ray Parent

Pros: Looks

Cons: No pop to this bat. My daughter switched from a Demarini CF-8 to this PXT. She went 2/3 way thru the high school season and said to me, this bat has no pop. So we did a bucket of balls with this bat, then back to her Demarini. On average, the balls went 30 feet further in the air with her older used up Demarini bat. Maybe we got a lemon, but I would not buy this bat.

How long would it take for the 30/20 PXT to ship to Missouri, and do you have one in stock?

We do have the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 in stock. If the order is placed before 8pm central time, the bat would most likely arrive at your location the following business day with free ground shipping.
Logan
What is the major difference between this bat and the LXT?
Dave S
This 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPPX18A10) will differ from the LXT as the PXT will require some sufficient break-in time before showing top performance (LXT is hot out of wrapper). The PXT will feature a little more barrel weight than the LXT (you could call it more of a "power hitter" bat). As well, the PXT will have more of a true composite sound.
Ben
What would you consider a sufficient amount of break in time for the PXT? We're half way through the high school season. Would it do any good to use it this season?
mike
To break in the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 we would recommend taking 150-250 swings off a tee or soft toss at about 60% max swing speed. After each swing one will want to rotate the barrel a 1/4 turn to ensure even break in. One could certainly get this bat game ready in a short amount of time and ready for game use even if the player's season is already at the half way point.
Cameron
Would a 10 or 11 year old have a strong enough swing to benefit from the PXT or is the LXT more age appropriate?
Brown
Due to the end-loaded swing weight, I would be a little hesitant to suggest a 10 or 11 year old to go with the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPPX18A10). To get a more balanced bat that would allow a player to swing quicker, I would suggest going with the LXT.
Ben
One of the answers to a question about the PXT bat is that the PXT bat has an end-loaded swing weight. Is that also true for the LXT bat?
Jason
This 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPPX18A10) does have an end-loaded swing weight. The LXT will feature a balanced swing feel and will not be end-loaded.
Ben
We have been DeMarini for years. Wanting to try something new. What size would my 11 year old need if she is 4'5 70 pounds? She hits with a 30 19 oz now.
Charissa Robison
I would recommend going with a 30'' 20 oz in the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10.
Max
Trying to decide between the LXT and the PXT 33/-9. My daughter is a freshman in college playing ball. Thoughts? She hits for average not for power.
DLC
The 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 features more of an end-loaded swing weight in comparison to the 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A10 which features a very balanced swing weight. The PXT will also require some sufficient break-in time before showing top performance while the LXT will be hot out of the wrapper. Typically, the PXT is recommended for a more power hitting player so the LXT might be the better option for your player.
Dan
My daughter is 16 about 5"5' 130lbs. She has never been considered a power hitter, but does hit the ball hard with the 32/22 LXT. Would the PXT help her at all with power? What are you thoughts?
Hud2019
It really is just going to come down to personal preference and what your daughter is going to be the most comfortable with. The 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 does feature a Power Balanced Swing Weight which power hitters tend to prefer.
Carter
My daughter had been swinging a DeMarini since 8U, about to start 12U, and looking into switching over to Louisville. She swings a 28'17 oz end load as of now, and coach is saying its too small for her 4'7' height at 70 lbs. What size bat would you recommend, and would you go with either the Xeno, LXT, or PXT (PXT preferred )?
Rob K.
We would probably recommend a 30" length for her height and weight. Any of those three options would be a great choice from Louisville Slugger, as all seem to have excellent performance and have been selling very well for us.
Kyle J.
My daughter will turn 14 in September; she is 5'2" tall and weighs 130 lbs. She is playing on a 16U team. I have been looking at the PTX bat. Would it be best to get the 32" bat for her?
deer slayer
With the specifications you provided, the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 in 32" / 22oz. would be a good choice for your daughter.
Daveron
My daughter is 5'7" 110 lbs and entering high school. Currently using an Easton Fs3 Torq in 32'' 20oz. I think its time to move her up in size and quality. She can hit for power and gets her hands through the zone quickly. Can one hop balls off 200' fences consistently. Her biggest issue is not getting her hands rolled over at contact. Considering trying out an end weighted bat like the Insane or PXT to see if the feel helps her complete her swing. What do you think and what size should she go with?
Allen
I would recommend going with the 32'' 22 oz in the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 based upon your daughters height and weight.
Max
My daughter plays 14U. She is 13 years old, 4"10-1/2' and weighs 126 lbs. She used a LXT 30' 20 oz. until it lost its pop, now she is using a Stealth 33' 22 oz. and doing okay. Wanting to go back to a Slugger, what would you suggest?
concerned dad
If your player had success with the LXT, I would go back to that model as the PXT will be a little end loaded and heavier to swing. Based on her size, I would suggest a 32" 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A10.
Logan
What's the difference in -8 and -10? Is the -10 better for power hitters? Is the PXT the best Louisville Slugger bat?
RONELL
The -8 model of the LS PXT is certainly better designed for a power hitter. The 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 is also a bat best designed for a power hitter but one who seeks a lighter length to weight ratio. Besides the obvious difference of the -8 being 2 ounces heavier than the -10 model of the PXT, one should not see anything different as the barrel length will be relative across the two different models.
Cameron
What would be the best bat for my daughter? She is 5’5'' and weighs about 165-170. She is a power hitter. She has a Demarini CF8 slapper now in a 33/22. I am looking at purchasing her a Louisville. Which one would you suggest? Or would you suggest another bat for her?
Dee
Based on her height and weight, I would recommend getting the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 in a 34''. The PXT would be a great choice for her as it is a power balanced model.
Tori
How does this bat compare with the DeMarini CFX 2018. Debating between the two for may daughter. 12 years old, 5'9" 130lbs. More of a power hitter but can slap as well. Not sure which route to go.
Eric M
The largest difference between the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 and the DeMarini CFX 2018 will be the Power Balanced swing weight, which can give stronger players more of an end weight to provide more mass hitting the ball. Typically, it can help benefit physically strong players with the slightly power loaded.
Max
What is the difference between the LXT and this bat (PXT)?
Scott
The 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 will feature what is called a power balanced swing weight making this bat more ideal for power hitters. The LS LXT model will be the most balanced bat they offer. As well, the composite barrel materials used in the bats will differ.
Cameron
My daughter is almost 11 and she uses and loves her Easton Ghost 30"/20 oz and uses it well for how small she is. I want to get her an alternative to try and keep on hand that she will also love. I think the PXT maybe but not sure between the PXT, LXT, or Xeno. What do you think?
Tyler
Any of those 3 models will be an excellent choice and all perform very well. I would lean more towards either the Louisville Slugger Xeno or the LXT as the PXT has a slightly more end loaded feel that is generally designed for older, stronger players.
Kyle J.
My daughter is 16 and a sophomore. She is 6'2" and is a power hitter. We go through 2 LXTs every year. She currently uses a 33 drop 10. Will the PXT slow down her swing speed? Is the PXT more durable than the LXT? Which bat would you recommend.
Gary Pfundt
The Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 will feature an end loaded swing weight that would not necessarily slow down swing speed with the player specs listed. This bat may would have about the same durability as the -10 LXT options. A suggestion would be to move to a heavier -9 bat, like the Louisville Slugger LXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX19A9.

About the Brand

In 1842, J. Frederick Hillerich emigrated with his family from Baden-Baden, Germany to the United States. Eight years before, the 1834 Book of Sports had made its debut as the nation's first publication covering baseball. But when he arrived in Baltimore, J. Frederick Hillerich would never have dreamed of the future impact his family would have on America's favorite pastime.

After a short while, the Hillerichs moved to Louisville, where J. Fred started a woodworking shop in 1856. Two of his sons, Adam and John Andrew "Bud" were born in the United States and would later join their father in his business. By 1864 "J.F. Hillerich, Job Turning" was in operation and filled orders for businesses by custom-turning everything from balusters to bedposts.

The firm thrived, and by 1875 the little woodworking shop employed about 20 people. In 1880 Bud Hillerich, who was an amateur baseball player, became an apprentice in his father's shop. Young Bud made his own baseball bats along with bats for several of his teammates.

The debate over the origins of the first bat continues to generate controversy among baseball enthusiasts, but the younger Hillerich was most certainly involved in getting his father's business involved with what would become the company's signature item. According to company legend, the first bat was turned by Bud for Pete "The Old Gladiator" Browning in 1884. Browning was a star on Louisville's professional American Association team - the Eclipse. On a spring afternoon Bud, then seventeen, witnessed Browning break his favorite bat. Bud offered to make a bat for his hero, and Browning accepted. After the young wood shop apprentice lathed a quality stick from white ash, according to the story, Browning got three hits with it in the next game.

Louisville Slugger gloves are worn by more pitchers in Major League Baseball than any other glove.
