Pros: Lots of pop, looks great, it did not break after a week. We received this bat about a month ago as a One-X replacement. It was hot right out of the box. My 14U daughter was swinging a 2013 Xeno and loved it, but this is her new favorite bat. She has never hit the ball further than she does with this bat. I have hit fly balls with it and I noticed a 20+ feet difference hitting one handed. No vibration or sting and a great balanced feel.

Cons: None.

***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.***. New for 2014! 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 within the taper 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!

Pros: My daughter is 65 pounds thought the 30" 20 oz. would be too much but she swings it well and she loves it. It added 15 feet to distance.

Cons: none

Pros: Excellent pop right out of the Wrapper!!! Definitely a step up from my Xeno! I loved my Xeno, but wow the ball flies off of this LXT!!! Also I get zero sting with mishits with this new LXT bat. Absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the feel of the LXT.

Cons: Boring color... But my bat is a tool, not a fashion statement... so as long as it keeps crushing the ball, I don't care that it's a boring color.

by Little Angels Softball - Feb 06, 2014

Pros: Bat is very well-balanced. Swings light but delivers outstanding pop and great exit speeds. Large sweet spot means lots of big hits, with our girls consistently smoking the ball over all areas of the plate. This bat has a very smooth feel and a Cadillac ride ... absolutely no sting on mis-hits. This gives the girls confidence. Stiff enough handle for a power hitter but with a flexible enough barrel that younger, smaller girls can be extremely effective with it. Sounds pretty cool, too!

Cons: None yet. While previous LS bats (notably the Xeno and OneX) have had durability problems, our LXT has not so I can't ding it for the issues of previous models.

Pros: My 14u DD Loves this bat, it has a nice feel and she is comfortable swinging it without needing batting gloves. Hit her first over the fence HR with this bat and leads her team in doubles.

Cons: She swings hard but the inside of the bat has broken after only two months. LS is replacing it so I hope it was just an anomaly, it was pretty chilly the morning it broke...

Pros: Good pop out of wrapper Great balance Awesome graphics & looks

Cons: Durability is highly questionable Inside of bat started rattling after only 4 months of use - extremely disappointing considering LS replaced my daughter's OneX with this bat....now she has nothing!

Cons: None

Pros: Used this for two tourneys and the pop is insane! Daughter took tourney MVP! In the hands of a quality hitter takes the field away from the fielders. She got out twice all weekend on two line drives to center. She tried her friends Mako too and says there is no comparison

Cons: I've heard about possible durability issues, but could be just people still talking because of the one-x

by Will Smothers - Apr 21, 2014

Pros: I have a daughter who is 12 and plays on a 14U tournament team. I have been watching tournaments for the past several months debating whether we should trade up her 2013 DeMarini CF5 or not. I had researched enough to know that I wanted to look at the Xeno, the LXT or the Mako. What I observed was that hitters using the Xeno and LXT had much better results than hitters using the Mako. This narrowed down the search for me. A number of our players SWEAR by the Xeno and will not even think of hitting with anything else. After debating it in my head, I decided the $50 difference in price between the Xeno and LXT was not that big a deal since the LXT also had a 30-day return policy. I pulled the trigger and bought the LXT and I am very glad that I did. My 12-year old is consistently hitting line drives to the deep outfield with this bat. Before with her DeMarini she was hitting them to the edge or the infield or to shallow outfield. She is 5'4" and weighs 109 Lbs. GREAT BAT!

Cons: The color options.

Pros: Looks good. No real way to rate durability, so I will give it 5 stars for the benefit of the doubt.

Cons: Bought the LXT and the 2014 Xeno to replace a 2012 Xeno. My daughter went to batting practice with the LXT. I noticed no difference in the LXT and the '12 Xeno, she hit with both and I decided to hit a few fly balls to the outfield with both bats. Sad to say but the '12 Xeno seemed to have a little more pop behind it after 1,000's of balls than the LXT. Nervous about opening the '14 Xeno since there was no 30 day promise, we went ahead and did so. Great decision, it had the pop, looks, and feel we were expecting. Welcome home Xeno. Sorry LXT, your headed back to where you came from. Since both bats did not have any reviews I really attempted to be open minded in my personal evaluation of the 2 new bats and the '12 Xeno.

How do you break-in a bat?

The best way to break-in a composite bat, like the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT (FPLX14-RR) Fastpitch, is to take 150-200 swings off a tee while rotating the barrel. For more information on breaking in bats check out our break-in guide http://www.justbats.com/blog/index.php/3789/breaking-in-your-composite-baseball-bat/

Is there a break in period for this bat or are they suppose to be hot out of wrapper?

What bat would you recommend for a slapper, the 2014 LXT or the Xeno 2014?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT: FPLX14-RR Fastpitch and 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch are both great choices for a slapper, as they're well-balanced and will be easy to control. The benefit of the LXT is the TRU3 Technology that it features, which is a three-piece design that will reduce vibration in the hands by sending it back up into the barrel for a smoother feel on contact. A short-game slapper will do well with the two-piece Xeno. For a player who occasionally hits from the left side or slaps for power, the LXT would be a great choice, as the benefits of the TRU3 Technology will be enhanced on a more powerful swing. The LXT is backed by a 30-day Performance Promise, so it can be returned for a full refund or exchange if you are not satisfied with the performance.

What is the difference between the 2014 LXT and the XENO? Are they designed for different style of hitters?

The LXT's patented TRU3 three-piece technology is intended to reduce vibration and send it back up into the barrel for optimized energy transfer and a smooth feel on contact. The TRU3 Technology on the LXT is backed by a 30-day Performance Promise. Both are well-balanced models that benefit both contact and power hitters.

My daughter is a 12U power hitter. Which bat is better for her? The the Louisville LXT FPLX14-RR or the Xeno? She is using the Xeno 32" 22 oz. now.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT: FPLX14-RR Fastpitch bat would be a great choice. It will feature Louisville Slugger's new three-piece design. Both this and the Xeno will provide a really balanced swing weight. I would have no problem recommending either bat for you.

I'm 5' 6'' and weigh 135 lbs. What size bat should I use? I currently have a 32/22 Anderson Techzilla.

Based on your height and weight, our Bat Coach tool recommends a 33" bat. It's harder for us to recommend what weight you should use, but increasing the weight by an ounce in a season is a very manageable jump.
