Louisville Slugger RXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2448010
Deliver top pop at the dish this season when you roll up to the batter's box with a Louisville Slugger RXT in hand.
The RXT is a 2-piece, all-composite fastpitch bat and is a really neat bat for the Louisville Slugger Fastpitch line because it brings together great aspects from a couple of their most popular bats: the XENO & the LXT.
Slugger's Spring Loaded Connection point that they put on this bat should provide for the stiff feel (lack of flex between the barrel and handle of the bat) that you will find on the XENO bat that has been produced by Louisville Slugger for a number of years. Girls with a lot of power in their swings have gravitated towards XENOs because of the stiff feel, but now they will grow to love this RXT for that similar stiffness. Power hitters usually like the stiff feel at contact with a softball because they feel as though all their power goes into the softball and little-to-no power gets lost in a flex between the barrel and handle (which can happen on a lot of 2-piece bats).
As well, due to the advanced Spring Loaded Connection system, the vibration that could get down to a player's hands on a miss-hit should be limited as well. The LXT is known for being an extremely comfortable bat with which to swing. This RXT should rival the comfortability of the LXT (But there have been some reviews that say the LXT is still a slight tick more comfortable than this RXT).
And lastly, this bat will be balanced in its feel! It does have the stiff feel that a lot of power hitters enjoy, but a contact hitter would be able to swing this bat extremely easy due to that balance!
This bat will indeed be covered with a twelve (12) month warranty extended by Louisville Slugger. If you get the bat and notice something wrong with it before 12 months have passed from the purchase date, please let the Bat Experts at JustBats know about the situation. The Bat Experts are knowledgeable about the warranty replacement process for Louisville Slugger and they will get you the information needed to begin organizing the bat replacement process!

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.
