Description

***If within 30 days of the purchase the consumer is not completely satisfied with the performance of their TRU3 Bat, they are able to return it to the retailer from which the purchase was made or directly to Louisville Slugger for a full refund of the documented retail price paid.***. Put some more spring in your swing this season with the new Louisville Slugger TPS LXT! Re-engineered from the breakthrough Xeno bat, the LXT is designed to provide more pop and an even better feel when you swing! The LXT features a new three-piece design that debuts Louisville Slugger's new Tru3 Technology. This revolutionary new transition technology strengthens the link between the barrel and handle to give the LXT a trampoline spring and dramatically reduced vibration on contact. This straighter, thicker rubber ring results in a bat that is not only sturdier, but feels better with every swing. Vibration from mishits are absorbed before they reach the player's hands, allowing players to be more consistent with their hitting. Like the Xeno, the LXT features S1iD Technology, except that the Xeno's aluminum inner disc has been upgraded to a composite one for the LXT. This allows for a flexible, more forgiving barrel, a larger sweet spot, and a cleaner sounding pop with every hit. Made from Louisville Slugger's thinner, high-strength, and lightweight Pure 360 Composite, the LXT is ready to take the fastpitch softball world by storm! Louisville Slugger: In a Class Above Any Other! The LXT is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

Not as much pop as the 2013 xeno Mark parent

Pros: Nice color, and good handle,

Cons: Throw my daughter 4 buckets of balls, 2 with the 2013 xeno and 2 with LXT. The 2013 xeno was the better bat. The 2012 xeno was better than the 2013 xeno when I did the same thing.

14U Dad

Pros: Graphics Very little sting to hands

Cons: This bat was a big disappointment for us. It has the least pop of any bat we own. We tried it against a Mako, a 2011 Rocketech, a 2012 Xeno, an SCN6b Stealth and a 2012 Techzilla. I pitched 2 buckets of balls front pitch and 2 buckets soft toss to my daughter using each bat. The ball consistently came off the LXT weaker than any of the others. This is a mediocre bat at a premium price. I would give it one star except it does have very little had sting on mis-hit balls. If you want the best hitting bat, I'd look elsewhere

Solid Bat Erin player

Pros: I used a 33" 24oz for a couple buckets of batting practice (front toss and soft toss). The pop is really great on the bat and the ball comes off the bat smoothly. The sweet spot is larger than usual and there is a rough texture on it so that new balls won't slip off. I had previously owned a 34" 25 oz 2013 Stealth and I preferred this bat.

Cons: I can't really speak about the durability of the bat or its performance over time.

I'm comparing the LXT with the 2014 Xeno. I'm a heavy hitter, and I was wondering which bat would be the better choice for me.
Laikin97
Both the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch: FPLX14-R9 and the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno are great bats. They will both be very balanced and easy to swing. The LXT will feature a three-piece design and come with a 30 Day Promise. If you do not like it, Louisville Slugger will give you your money back. For a power hitter, either bat would be awesome!
Brandon
What's the difference between the R8, R9, and RR versions? Are all of these bats legal for HS play in MO?
Sward83
All the versions of the Louisville slugger Xeno including the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX14-R9) would be legal for play. The differences between the models is the drop weight. The R8 is a -8, the R9 is a -9 and the RR is a -10.

I am looking for this bat in a 23/33. Will you be getting more in stock, or will this be replaced with something else?
Geri
We couldn't guarantee we'd restock any sizes of the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX14-R9), as the 2015 model is actually available on the site now. Check out the product page through this link: http://goo.gl/LjVSDp.
Mac
Performance wise, how does the drop -9 compare with the drop -10? I also notice a big price difference in the two sizes, why is that so? Is it due to performance or just demand?
Softball Mom
The difference between a drop -9 and -10 in the Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX14-R9) is going to be pretty small. Aside from being an ounce heavier you will not notice a significant improvement in performance. As far as the price difference I think you may be looking at the 2014 LXT vs. the 2015 LXT which explains the significant price difference.

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.
