New for 2013! Many of the best teams in college and high school softball were swinging the Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno this past year! That's because they learned the old fashioned way which bat was the hottest: through thousands of hours of practice and play. The dedication that Louisville Slugger put in to create the Xeno design really shines through in this year's model, and it all starts with S1iD Technology. This technology actually allows the barrel to be tuned to exceed the legal ball exit speed ratio. The catch is that a governor is placed inside that allows the barrel to flex to its MAXIMUM allowable performance from SWING 1. The Xeno is made from Louisville Slugger's innovative new LS 2X Composite, yet due to the S1iD technology, it needs ABSOLUTELY ZERO BREAK-IN! The Xeno features an iST design that gives this bat a solid connection between the barrel and handle. iST provides players a bat with a solid feel and HUGE sweetspot, while absorbing vibrations from mis-hit balls before they reach the hands. With a tacky synthetic grip a 7/8 inch handle, the Xeno will give players absolute control at the plate. If you are a fastpitch player looking for THE top-of-the-line bat this season, look no furthur than the TPS Xeno! Louisville Slugger: In a Class Above Any Other! The Xeno is approved by ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA and ISF. This bat comes with a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

Pros: Since we bought our first, the 2011 Xeno, we've been extremely pleased with the line. After a very successful year with the Xeno 2012, we moved up to the onex last year. My daughter hit a ball 40 feet further than her previous 220 ft shots. She got her first hit as varsity player with the 2013 replacement for the onex. She absolutely did not want to give up the onex. The bat endured repeated poundings by her and a friend without breaking. She's very happy with the 2013 Xeno. Her 34" 26oz bat swings much lighter and feels propely balanced. There's no vibration even when the temps drop near the low temp end for the bat. She loves the sound. She's looking forward to testing the 2014 Onex when she gets one this July 2013!!! We can't to see what inovations it will bring to the games. It will be her fifth bat.
by My Babbbyyy ! - Apr 09, 2013
Pros: It cracks perfectly. If it doesn't hit a home run then it will hit a SOLID HARD grounder!
Cons: It gets dirty quicker then most bats and It feels like it's gonna snap!
by tigergirl41 - Apr 09, 2013
Pros: It hits almost as hard as the 201w
Cons: I had my bat for four weeks (about thirteen games including two tournaments, averaging three at bats a game so no more than thirty-nine at bats) and my bat broke in half hitting the pitcher at my first plate appearance so the durability of the bat is not as high as the old xeno from 2012 (which lasted me for a full season before cracking but never fully breaking in half
by softball girl - Apr 11, 2013
Pros: This bat is amazing. I was first skeptical of louisville slugger after having my oneX recalled when I saw nothing wrong with the bat I was smacking home runs left and right and had no problem. This bat proved it was just as good and I highly recommend getting it. I got this bat as a replacement for free from the oneX. Cant wait to get my free xeno and oneX 2014
by DJB20 - May 19, 2013
Pros: Love it! Will never swing anything else. CF4 and CF5 feels like sponges now.
Cons: Glad it has warranty, already cracking and I've only had it a few months...
by NW Rage 96 Coach - Dec 03, 2012
Pros: This bat has amazing pop and has a large sweet spot. The "breaking glass" sound the bat makes is sure to turn heads.
Cons: This is a warm weather bat, it loses some of its explosiveness in cool weather.
by thatDrakeKid27 - Jan 28, 2013
Pros: Best bat on market..hot out of wrapper.. ball flies off this bat.. 10u hits ball 150ft no lie at 100 pounds.. bat has never stung her hands. bat looks feel great. I LOVE this bat.. much better than any DeMarini bats..TheOne is the only bat that can hang with this bat. BUY THIS BAT IF U WANT HRs!
Cons: no cons.. its white so a little hard to keep clean. but it sure is pretty.
by bdawg - Mar 30, 2013
Pros: great pop
Cons: after a week bat is illegal because o rattle inside of barrel, not good!!!!!! All we did was about 20 buckets of front toss. She is 12u 21oz 31length
by Don't waste your money! - Apr 25, 2013
Pros: Hot out of the wrapper! Took hits that were just hitting the grass to almost hitting the fence!
Cons: Bought it 3/11/13 and it broke today 4/23/13. For $300 I expected this bat to last at least 2 seasons. Extremely disappointed in the durability!!!! This bat has been discontinued so we'll see how the warranty is going to work....
by Ahifever - May 09, 2013
Pros: Hot out of the wrapper, balls come off hard and crisp, Too bad its so hard to find! Definitely one of the best bats out there.
Cons: None so far, but heard durability at the connection was an issue. We'll see.
by Anonymous - Oct 15, 2012
Pros: Hot bat right out of wrapper. My 11 yr.old is hitting deep balls to fence and very hard line drives. She loves it.Going to Atlanta this weekend to play can't wait.
Cons: None so far
by FP momma - Feb 15, 2013
Pros: Money well spent. Second Xeno for 12U player. Had a 2012, now have 2013 model. My daughter swears by it. It makes for a great swing.
by Anonymous - Feb 20, 2013
Pros: Great bat! My daughter is 16. She's a power hitter and usually gets some good hits. The bat was good to go right out of the box. She loves the pop and hit three home runs the first weekend she used it!
Cons: The only thing I would change is the white grip. It was dirty and dingy after a couple uses.
by Anonymous - Mar 19, 2013
Pros: My daughter swung this bat "TWICE"...the first swing was a hard single. Her next at bat with the bases loaded, she swung the bat for the second time and thinking we had an extra base hit, it broke in half! No consolation to the team or my daughter! We had high hopes for it after having great success with the first Xeno. :(
by Tay's Dad - Apr 12, 2013
Pros: The bat is great! It does indeed increase the girls hitting distance, and it will give them more confidence.
Cons: It's not durable, but it does have a warranty.
by Shalyn78 - Apr 15, 2013
Pros: My daughter loves this bat! Its her first composite bat and we are sorry we waited so long to invest in a good bat!
Cons: White grip.
by Wardog - Apr 16, 2013
Pros: Awesome bat! Huge sweet spot and no vibration. 12u daughter hit one off the fence first at bat!
Cons: Bat broke in half after the second game! 85 degrees here in Texas and the it did not last more than 6 at bats.
by Anonymous - Apr 26, 2013
Pros: I absoulutely love this bat. I used it right out of the wrapper and its as hot as any bat ive had. I have two stealths but nothing else sounds or feels like a xeno. Id definantly reccomend you getting one if you're debating it its so worth the money!
Cons: none what so ever
by WorthCoach98 - May 09, 2013
Pros: Hot out of the box, attractive graphics. My 13 year old had 2 of the 2012 models in 32" 22 oz. & 33" 23 oz. Lots of power, lots of bat speed, lots of batting practice, and lots of games on them. Love the product and results.
Cons: Bought a 2013 model on Saturday Feb. 23, broke in half on second at bat Sunday the 24th. Sent bat back on Feb 27 and got a receipt of delivery on March 1. On March 9, got a "denied" delivery notice. Never received packaging or bat back. Now no one wants to respond at all. Had bat for less than 24 hrs before it broke, going into the third month waiting for replacement.
by socal softball - May 09, 2013
Pros: This an update on the Xeno. I am purchasing a second bat for my daughter. This time around she is getting a -9 (34/25), at her request. She used her last one approximately 2 years and a couple odd months,before she broke it during a game. She will not use any other bat except the Xeno. I would like to again advise parents, do not purchase this bat unless your daughter is playing at high school/elite level. You'll be wasting your time and money doing this. My daughter has been using composites like this for 5 years now. I'll be the first one to tell you, I wasted my time and money going this route. It wasn't till she started getting lessons at 14 that things sunk in and she started understanding the benefits of the Xeno.
by Lswizzle - May 23, 2013
Pros: Big sweet spot. Breaks in fast and easy.
Cons: None so far.
by Sis - May 29, 2013
Pros: Bouncing off the fence, and I mean a couple feet higher and it's gone. First quality bat purchase. Had 1st over the wall HR.
Cons: White handle is brown after just a couple games.
by Cal24 - Jun 04, 2013
Pros: Love the bat, balanced, almost feels lighter than other similar sized bats. The ball explodes off of the Xeno. No problems with breaking as we have two on our team.
Cons: Paint chips off bat easily.
by 10U Fastpitch Dad - Jun 12, 2013
Pros: Got this bat after the OneX which I loved as much as my daughter, it was recalled. My daughter is 9. She is 5' tall but only about 80 lbs. Small frame. She hit the top of the 200' fence and almost went over. This bat is Hot but I believe the OneX would have been 20 yards over the fence. Still yet for a 9 year old to hit the top of a high school fence shows the pop on this bat.
by Anonymous - Aug 30, 2012
Pros: Great Bat, we had the 2012 model in a 32" and decided we needed the 33", we received the bat the day after it was ordered! My daughter had a doubled header the day we received and hit her first highschool ball over the fence!!! Money well spent!
by Proud Mom - Sep 07, 2012
Pros: This bat is everything it claims to be! It has made a huge difference in my daughters batting. She loves it!

by Cheryl - Jan 23, 2013

by Peanut - Feb 08, 2013
Pros: My 14 year old has only used the bat in lessons but it seems much hotter than the 2012 model.

by Anonymous - Mar 18, 2013
Pros: We love our Xenos!
Cons: Now illegal in the state of Oklahoma.
by broke daddy - Mar 21, 2013
Pros: This bat rocks. If you don't believe it get one and put it in your girls hand. If she can hit you'll get your money's worth. It will not be the bats fault if she doesn't.
Cons: Hard to keep clean.
by Broncos - Mar 23, 2013
Pros: Hot out of the box. First at bat with new Xeno and took it over left field fence.
by Verbal Commit - Apr 17, 2013
Pros: The bat is amazing, but it is the "Indian" not the "arrow".
Cons: My daughter has now broken 2 of these bats. No one else uses it and she takes excellent care of it. She is very strong with extremely fast bat speed.
by glass breaker - Apr 28, 2013
Pros: During hitting practice instant feed back when your not in the sweet spot. Great pop, very balanced!
Cons: None so far.
by Softball Dad - Sep 11, 2012
Pros: Bat has the same Xeno cracking sound as the previous years. I personally like it. The bat was hot right out of the wrapper. The ball flies off this thing. My daughter loves it and all the kids with the black Xenos are jealous now cause they love the new design.
Cons: I just bought this bat for my daughter and now I want to get her a OneX and my wife is gonna kill me if I do. I guess I'll wait till spring.. ;)
by SoCal Softball - Jan 02, 2013
Pros: I researched composite bats for 3 months, before buying my daughters third bat since she was 13. By far this is the best bat she ever had. I have taken her to the bat wars events by the manufacturers, where she has tried 15-20 bats. This is by far the best bat she has ever swung. If your daughter is still playing rec ball, this is not the bat for her. The swing is the key to this bat, if the daughter is not taking lessons then you're wasting your money on this type of bat. To get the most out of this bat, the player must have a disciplined, consistent swing. The older and bigger your daughter is, the better this bat is for her. It is more suited for older, bigger players. The example is my daughter, who is 16 and 5' 9' tall weighing 129 lbs. She swings the biggest, heaviest bat Louisville makes for this model. Very pricey bat. Bless you parents who back your daughters with this type of equipment. I hope this helps in your decision.
by KJA - Feb 20, 2013
Pros: I purchased the 2013 -10 XENO due to my 8 Year Old daughters 2012 -11 CF5 busted. The XENO has great POP and the attention getting sound of a XENO.
Cons: Bat is not Nearly as balanced as a CF5, it has more of an End-Load Feel. This Bat is awesome, but will require some work to get back to a smooth Swing. Its all about Wrist Strength with the smaller girls with Bats that are not "Balanced".
by Wheels - Feb 25, 2013
Pros: I took the time to break my bat in. My first at bat I hit a triple. Love my xeno.
Cons: None yet. I have only used it in 1 tournament.
by Alcoa2013 - Feb 03, 2013
Pros: This bat has changed my daughters whole batting game, nothing is going past her, the weight and length are just perfect!
by Anonymous - Oct 31, 2012
Pros: My daughter was playing a team and their 3rd batter had this bat. They have played this team before and this girl was not a big power hitter. She had this bat and the first pitch our pitcher threw, she smacked and got a homerun!
by north texas longhorn - Aug 26, 2012
Pros: cool bat, like the new look still has alot of pop right out of the box.i cant wait till the fall season starts.
Cons: you really have to break this bat it in order to get that same distinctive sound like the 2011 xeno

I have the 2012 Louisville Slugger Xeno, 33" 23 oz. and when I shake it, it makes a rattle sound inside. The Endcap seems tight. Should I start looking for a new bat?
Asked by dawg on May 12, 2013
It seems like it has been damaged in some way. If it is still covered under the 12 month manufacture warranty I would call Louisville Slugger at 800-282-2287. If it has been longer then that then I would look into the new 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X Fastpitch.

· May 07, 2013
My daughter has one of these 2013 Xeno bats. It's a demo and was given to her by a college team that uses it for batting practice. It has a bad rattle to it like a can of spray paint. It is a hot bat right now but is there anything I can do to it to stop the rattle in it? Like pop the end cap off and remove the rattling. Someone told me to stuff it with cotton balls and glue it back on. What do you think?
Asked by dada on May 05, 2013
I would not mess with any part of the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X Fastpitch bat. If you take the end cap off it will damage the bat. Just because there is a rattle does not mean the bat's performance will suffer. The manufacturer reps. have mentioned that to us many times here. I would leave it be.
· May 06, 2013
I got my Xeno two years ago. I love the bat, but a lot of people have been telling me that it is broken. It has a distinct sound but that's how all the Xeno bats sound. How can I tell whether or not my bat is dead?
Asked by Morgan on May 02, 2013
There's no sure-fire way, but if you noticed the sound is not right or different from what it used to be, then it may be dead. You'll also see a significant drop in performance as a dead bat will not have the original pop. Also, I would look closely for hairline cracks and look and feel for small dents as well as the end cap to see if it is loose or cracked.
· May 02, 2013
My granddaughter is 12 years old and has been using her friends Xeno 34/24. She's about 150 lbs. so she has some power. If she makes contact, the ball flies, if not strikes out. I'm trying to buy her a Xeno bat and would like your suggestion if the 34/24 is too heavy for her.
Asked by Grandma on Apr 30, 2013
If she is stronger than average and has good swing speed with her friend's 34" 24 oz. Xeno, then she would be just fine sticking with a 34" 24 oz. 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X.

· Apr 18, 2013
Umpires would not allow daughter to use her 2013 XENO because it is cracked. She thought it had lost it's pop and was broken but loves it and still wanted to use it until it totally died. So, it is still under warranty for another month. I looked at your site and several others as well as Louisville site and it looks like they are out of stock and not being made. How will they honor this warranty and I wonder how long it will take to replace the broken bat? Daughter is disappointed because season is just gearing up.
Asked by Number 03 on Apr 15, 2013

Can you hit softies and weighted balls with the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X Fastpitch?
Asked by ringo on Feb 27, 2013
We recommend limiting the use of weighted training balls with any bat. They are much more dense than game softballs and could shorten the life of the bat.
· Feb 27, 2013
My daughter is swinging a 33" drop -9 RockeTech (she likes it and moved up from a 31" drop -9 RT), but she needs an alternate, more balanced swing point. She hit the OneX and loved it, is the Xeno same balance point? Or is there another bat you would recommend?
Asked by CasTed on Feb 26, 2013
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X Fastpitch will have a very similar feel to the OneX and the balance is nearly identical. If your daughter loved the OneX, she should feel the same about the Xeno.

Asked by Chris on Feb 25, 2013
Yes we are aware of the issue with the 2013 Louisville Slugger OneX. What you can do is send it back to Louisville and they will replace it with the Xeno and your choice of: 1. A glove or bag with an $80 retail value. 2. A $50 stored value gift card that works just like cash. 3. A 2014 OneX or equivalent bat that will ship in August. You could also ship the bat back to us and we will send you a Xeno as well and credit the differences back, but we will not send you a 2014 OneX when it arrives.

The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X features the iST Technology two-piece design while the 2013 TPS oneX features the upgraded T2 two-piece design. Performance for both bats will be very similar.

What temperature can this bat be used at?
Asked by Fast on Feb 17, 2013
Typically you wouldn't want to play in weather any colder than 50 degrees. Anything colder than that, then the risk is much higher of cracking the bat.

I know both the Xeno and oneX say balanced weighted, but I have the Xeno 2011 and it is a little top heavy. I was thinking about getting the oneX for my younger daughter is the oneX more balanced weighted like the CF5?

Most will say the oneX feels a little lighter with a more balanced swing weight compared to the Xeno. The CF5 is also a balanced bat similar to the oneX.

My 12-year-old used a team-mates bat this weekend during her tournament and laced a line drive into right center on just her second pitch... We wanna buy her one for Christmas. But first, can you please help us understand the differences between what weight-drops are ? Our daughter is 12 years old, 5 ft 3 inches, 110 LBS.... Can you help ?
Asked by Mom and Dad on Nov 19, 2012
The drop, or length to weight ratio, is the numerical difference between the length and weight of the bat. For instance, a 32" -12 bat weighs 20 oz. A 32" -11 bat weighs 21 oz. A 32" -10 bat weighs 22 oz. etc...
· Nov 19, 2012
Many people have said this bat is ready to go right out of the wrapper. Is there still a break in time or is it truly ready to go?
Asked by softballzoo on Nov 08, 2012
Composite bats do require a break-in period in order to ensure maximum performance and durability. A good break-in consists of approximately 150-200 hits off a tee or soft-toss rotating the barrel a quarter inch between each hit to ensure an even break-in.

What is the difference between the Xeno and the oneX?
Asked by Brett on Oct 17, 2012
The main difference between the Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno and Louisville Slugger TPS oneX is the transition. The oneX uses the new T squared transition. Many players have said the new transition is more firm and feels stronger in the swing. They also felt like it gave them a little more power. If you can imagine the Xeno transition is more like a "ball-and-socket" connection, while the T squared transition is more of a straight "T" connection that makes it stiffer.
· Oct 17, 2012
On August 27th a question was asked and answered regarding the differences between the FP12x and the FP13x in which only the paint job was different between the two. What about differences between the FP11x and the FP12x/FP13x? Is the technology the same but only the color scheme different? Daughter loves her FP11x and grew, so she needs to size up. Are these bats designed and perform the same with just the color schemes changing?
Asked by TSR on Oct 10, 2012
The technology of the Xeno has not changed. The color scheme is the only change over the last two years.

My daughter is 5'6" and 135 pounds. I am not sure what bat to go with or what size. The 2013 Xeno, RIP-IT Prototype, or DeMarini CF5? What bat is going to get the best distance?
Asked by JJ on Sep 12, 2012
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno, 2013 RIP-IT Prototype, and the DeMarini CF5 are all great bats that have a lot of pop and have very good durability. Their performance is going to be the same since they are all top of the line bats that are very high performing. The DeMarini CF5 and the TPS Xeno are both composite bats and the RIP-IT is an aluminum bat.

Is this bat considered endloaded? is it very comparable to the cf5 weight balance? which would be a better bat between the 2, for a smaller hitter, looking for the advantage of the technological "pop!"
Asked by adam on Aug 20, 2012
Both the Xeno and CF5 (the Insane model not included) are balanced bats and comparable in swing weight. Both are great bats that offer tremendous pop. The biggest difference is the flex in the bats. The Xeno is stiffer, while the CF5 has just a little more flex. It comes down to the personal preference of player.
· Aug 20, 2012
I have the 2012 model. Did the bat actaully change any from last years model and if so what were the major changes?
