The Louisville Slugger Xeno X18 softball bats are new for the season! One of the most popular and highly regarded names in fastpitch is back with a vengeance and better than ever.

Happy Dad Brett parent

Pros: You don't have to be super strong or big to swing this bat with speed. My daughter is crushing the ball and she is making it look so effortless with this drop 11 XENO. I would recommend this bat to any player/parent.

Cons: I still can't believe that I paid $300 for a bat but it was worth it to see my daughter's face.

great bat. angela flyny coach

Pros: bought this bat at lunch and had a game that evening . my daughter got to swing it about 5 times before game. she got a single a double and a homerun. one was a great line drive. one was a outfield fly over third. this bat has great pop and reaction to the ball. love it. i will say that if you are going from a alummiim single bat to a double composite it has a different feel but she did great. and btw my daughter is 6.

Cons: none.

I'm in love hannah evans player

Pros: This bat is amazing! It has a great feel to it and all around just a better bat to hit with. I had the 2016 Xeno and it was a great bat as well but the pop was just starting to give out and I didn't realize until I used the new one. It's truly a good bat with some pop.

Cons: it has a lot of pop in it but not as much as everyone said it had. still love it though!

Lousville XENO Michael Simon parent

Pros: Daughter loves the bat it took about thirty hits/swings for her to start getting used to its balance. Now she is killing the ball. When she tried out for All Stars, the coaches were all commenting to each other on how hard she was hitting the ball. The other girls couldn't field what she was hitting. She then hit the ball to the fence for an inside the park home run. She's all smiles and very confident now!

Cons: None so far

Excellent bat from the get go!! Spring Parent

Pros: Xeno for Christmas… She asked for this Xeno at the beginning of last year but I thought she'd like the LXT better and she did.. Best thing I could have done was give her this for Christmas. She was really shocked because she had said several time that she was very happy with the LXT and she no longer wanted the Xeno.. That was until she took the Xeno out now the LXT is a back up..

Cons: None

Do we need to break this bat in?
Bubba
This 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPXN18A11) is typically pretty hot right out of the wrapper according to Louisville Slugger. I do not think much of a break-in, if any, will be required.
Ben
How much bigger is the sweet spot on the 2018 than the 2016. And compared to the 2018 LXT? This will be a replacement bat and we are trying to decide on the right bat. Also, should we break it in?
Sherri
The 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 will feature the X-Cap which will increase swing speed and maximize barrel length. The 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 is going to be hot of out of the wrapper so no need to break that in.
Max
My daughter is 5'2" and she weighs 112. She currently uses the 2017 DeMarini Insane bat but wants to get a Louisville. What would you recommend PXT or LXT or Xeno? And what drop?
britt
I think the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 would be a great fit for her. This bat will allow her to get through the zone easily.
Max
What size (weight and length) would be best as my daughter in 5'4" and weighs 96 lbs?
Ang
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 in a 32 inch model.
Cameron
My daughter currently swings the 2016 model in a 30/19. She has swung that for two years. We are in need for a new bat. She is 4'10" and she weighs 115. Should I go up a size?
AshBraz
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 31" 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11.
Logan
We just bought this bat for my daughter. What is the correct break in procedure?
#41
The 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 will be hot out of the wrapper and will not need any break in period.
Max
My daughter is 5'6", 125 lbs and 17 years old. She would like to use a -11 bat. We're looking at the 2018 Xeno. What length do you suggest for her?
Chris
Based on her height and weight, it is suggested that she uses a 33" bat. However, if your player feels this is too big or small, a 32 or 34" bat would work just fine.
Mick
My daughter is 5'8" and 125 lbs. She is 13 years old, what size bat should she use?
#4
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 33" 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11.
Logan
My daughter is 5'2" and 96 lbs, what length should she be looking at and which Louisville do you recommend?
Pokey
Based on your daughter's height and weight we would recommend a 32"/21 ounce 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 for her.
Carter
What is the main difference between the LXT and the Xeno for a 10 year old as far as pop and general feel? My daughter is second year 10U, and used the 30 inch xeno -11 last season. It broke in two just after the one year mark and I was unable to replace it. The bat calculator suggests a 31 inch for this year. I am torn between a -11 and -10. Suggestions?
bekki1033
The 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A11 will have a slightly larger sweet spot and is catered more toward stronger, older player or those with more power. The 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 will be slightly more balanced and better for a contact hitter. I would recommend your player to swing a -11 in a 31 inch.
Dan
My daughter plays in a 10U league. She is 4"11" tall and weighs 125 lbs, is a good hitter but not quite power hitter. Not sure which drop would be best -10 or -11. What do you recommend?
Lou
We always recommend swinging the heaviest bat that you can still handle with good bat speed as that will provide the most power, so I would go with the -10 if you think she can handle the weight of that bat.
Kyle J.
My daughter is 5"4'-5"5' 120 lb playing 12U fastpitch. Her Xeno just got a crack in it. That one is a 31' -10. She loves the Xeno so going to get her that again. Move up to 32' -11?
kk
Based on her height and weight and what she had been using previously we would recommend moving up to a 32"/21 ounce 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11.
Carter
My daughter is 5'1", 105 pounds. She is a slapper and hits away and trying to decide between -10/-11 to help with control. Thoughts?
Steve
Generally a lighter bat will always help with control and bat speed, while the heavier model provides more power, so it comes down to what you want out of your bat.
Kyle J.
My daughter is 4'4" and weighs 65 pounds. What size/weight/drop do you recommend?
A-Wal
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 in a 28 inch model.
Cameron
How does the Louisville XENO drop 11 compare to the Easton Stealth Flex drop 11? If there is a difference? Which would be the preferred bat for a smaller contact hitter?
Softball dad
Both the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 and Easton Stealth Flex -11 bats are two-piece composite models with balanced swing weights. Although the two bats will utilize different composite and connection point designs they are excellent choices for a smaller contact hitter. Which one to get really comes down more to personal preference and which manufacturer you feel makes a better bat.
Cameron
My daughter is 10, pretty slender, weighing in at 60 pounds. Can she swing this stick?
clint
It may be tough for a slender 10 year old player to swing the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11; it all comes down to her physical strength. The nice thing about the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 is it features a balanced swing weight design. This allows the bat to be handled my a multitude of players.
Cameron
Is this bat appropriate for a 12 year old girl at 5'1" and 90 lbs? She is playing on 13U and middle school teams.
Mike
The length to weight ratio would certainly be appropriate for a 12 year old player, and the performance level would be hard to beat. At her size, I would suggest the 32" 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11.
Logan
Can you recommend a length/drop for my daughter: 4'7" and 82 lbs?
Nicole
Based on your daughter's height and weight, we would recommend looking into a 30 inch model. As far as whether to get the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11, or its equivalent in a -10, this would be more based on the player's age. A -11 model is best designed for a player up to 13 years of age, maybe even a smaller 14 year old player.
Cameron
Best size bat for 4'6" 80 lb girl?
dad21
I would recommend going with a 30'' 19 oz in a 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11
Max
Is there a break in period for the 2018 XENO -10? Just purchased for my daughter a week ago and she just used it in a tournament this past weekend, and for what ever reason, it didn't sound right and she has lost her power and the bat sounds dead. Hitting coach even stated it sounds dead when the bat makes contact with the ball. I tried hitting a ball over the fence (200 ft). and couldn't. Her DeMarini sent them over the fence and in the woods! Reviews were great so i bought it. Confused, concerned, and disappointed.
Concerned Dad
The 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 does need to be broken in before use in games. We do recommend that all fully composite bats be broken. We recommend taking 150-200 swings playing soft toss or off a tee using real baseballs. Begin swinging at 40% power and work our way up to full strength as you get closer to 200.
Cooper
What size bat would you recommend for a 13 year old girl who is 5"7' and 124 lbs?
TYuri
We would recommend about a 33" length for her height and weight.
Kyle J.
What is the difference between the XENO and the PXT?
Milton
The difference between the Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 and the Louisville Slugger PXT is that the Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 will be balanced swing weight, while the Louisville Slugger PXT will be a end loaded swing weight. Typically the Louisville Slugger PXT works well for more physically strong players, because they are able to swing the heavier end load through the hitting zone quickly.
Max
My daughter plays 10U travel ball and we're looking for a new bat. She is using the Louisville Slugger Quest 31-19, but it's a bit heavy for her. She's 4'3" and 9 years old. Would this bat in 30-19 be any better?
Patricia B.
The Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 may swing just a touch lighter due to the composite design, but I don't think it would be all that noticeable. At her age, you may want to consider dropping down to a 29" 18 ounce Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN19A11.
Logan
Daughter is 5"3 weight 140, likes a 33" bat not sure on the drop, any suggestions? She has tried this bat via friend and loves it.
CHRIS
In general, drop will be dependent on the player's strength. That is difficult for us to determine. However, most fastpitch softball players above the age of 11 years old, would be in the -10 range.

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.
