Pros: We have been waiting for this bat debut since early summer. My daughter loved her 2012 Xeno, but had issues with the 2013. When LS said they were going to make the 2014 more durable, my thinking was this is not going to have the same pop - WRONG! 1) Hot out of the wrapper 2) Totally agree that 2014 has the pop as the 2012 3) Daughter loves the graphic and color 4) Large sweetspot with no vibration. 5) Very well balance. As a Dad and ex baseball player, I also had to see for myself. I also hit outfield practice rotating several bats that the girls had and happy to report this finished very high! Keeping my fingers crossed on the durability. That the reason I gave it a 3.

Cons: None at this time.

New for 2014! 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 Pure 360 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 further 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: Looks great! Plenty of pop, the ball explodes off the bat. Much better sweet spot on the 2014 Xeno. My daughter was using a 2011 Xeno, she got 3 good years out of the bat. Hopefully, the durability with the 2014 will be just as long.

Cons: To early to tell

by B Jefcoat - Sep 15, 2013

Pros: Came out of the box as expected. Had great pop, great feel, great looks. There is no way for me to grade durability but without question the rest of the grading criteria = 5 stars. We are replacing a 2012 Xeno with a 34" bat. We were a little unsure of what to do, buy 2014 or buy the 2012. It's hard to tell about how others may judge a bat which only adds to the confusion so I really tried to be an open book for this review since there are no other reviews. We are very happy with the 2014 Xeno. In addition to the Xeno, we also bought the LXT since it has a 30 day promise. I hit outfield fungo so I could personally get a feel for how the ball jumped off the '12 Xeno, '14 Xeno and LXT. Without a doubt, hands down, the '14 Xeno had more pop than the LXT. As a matter of fact the '12 Xeno had just as much, if not more, and there is no telling how many 1,000's of balls the '12 has had hit. Sorry LXT but you will be going back to where you came from.

Cons: None, very happy.

Pros: Straight out of the wrapper, the new 2014 Xeno bat performed. My daughter had the 2013 Model, which was light blue and with a white handle and it broke after 8 months. Normally, these bats last us a year. Other softball players recommended this bat to me and it's well worth the $299.99. The graphics are nicer and it has a gray tapped handle unlike last years model, which my daughter hated because it always looked so dirty.

Cons: Don't have one yet.

Pros: Feels just like the 2013s balance. Lots of pop when ball is centered barreled up. Looks great best looking bat hands down preforms just like 2013 witch is awesome best bat on the market longevity is the only ? but lets face it we buy bats for bombs not to keep 4 ever 1 year is about right. The bat is Awesome buy it its beautiful and has great pop

Cons: I love Xenos so is sad to say the 2012 has a little more pop but feels heavier than the 2013 and 2014 witch feel identical my kiddo at 11 has had 2012 2013 2014 Xeno so i have a good idea. She swings the 2012 over the 2013 2014

by Nick - Oct 25, 2013

Pros: I just got this bat for my daughter (12u) travel player. We brought it to practice and let the other girls use it and now I think we've got a new team bat. The pop is much better than the 2013 model and so is the feel according to my daughter.

Cons: None at this time. Can't comment on the durability as we've only had it for a few weeks.

Pros: Great feel! I hit with the bat for the first time today and I hit 5 homerun's over the fence today! Has great pop! I have never had a xeno bat but have heard great things about it! I have only had the bat for a day now and can not tell how the durability is going to last! So far so good!

Cons: Light gray grip gets dirty easily and the $$!

Pros: I have the Xeno 2012 and love it I have been hitting with it for 3 years now, and recently have gotten the 2014 Xeno because of the new USSSA standards. I am 14 and play 14u travel ball. The Xeno 2012 comes hot out of the wrapper is very durable, and has a great pop. I have started to use my 2014 Xeno more and I LOVE IT! It has a great pop and I can barely swing and it goes long and when I swing my best it goes.

Cons: None at this time.

by Ricky Bobby - Jan 11, 2014

Pros: My daughter went from a Demarini Vendetta to this bat, and it has been all positive. The ball flies off of the bat right out of the wrapper. The sound when she makes contact is wicked. I've heard some negative reviews regarding durability, but the warranty makes it worth the risk.

Cons: None

by Mallie T - Feb 20, 2014

Pros: My daughter is 4'8" and weighs 90lbs. We went from a 28" -11 Demarini to a 30" -10 Xeno. Just in practice it is amazing the difference the ball flies off the bat. She loves the look , the feel, and I love the smile she makes when she hits the ball. I can't leave a remark about the durability yet . But so far we love it.

Cons: It is a little pricey but if it performs as well at game time it will be well worth it.

Pros: My daughter is 8 yrs old and loves her 2014 Xeno... she's been using Demarini Bustos since she has started playing ball a year ago. We are now loyal fans of the Xeno. Her infield homeruns have double since she started swinging this bat. Amazing graphics and even better pop!

Cons: None yet because we only had it for such a short time. I do hope it stays that way.

by Brian - Apr 07, 2014

Pros: We had always bought our daughter the bats off the clearance rack because we wanted to make sure she was serious about softball. This will be her second year of kid pitch and she has always been a good contact hitter. At practice she is making great contact and the balls were not leaving the infield. We decided to step up and get her a new bat. We researched and decided to go with the Xeno 31/21 bat. First pitch she nailed a linedrive right into my stomach. Then she hit 15 balls harder and farther then she had ever hit before. She was begging to keep hitting. She was jumping up and down because she had never seen the ball go 150 to 175 feet in the air. Just the confidence it has given her in 2 days is well worth the price.

Cons: Can't hit it in under 60 degrees. She has been begging to go hit but we have had to say no.

Pros: Great pop off the sweet spot. This was my 13yr olds first Xeno. Have had 4 Demarinis before the Xeno. The Xeno seems to have a little more pop. But she prefers the more balanced weight of Demarini.

Cons: Concerned about durability but no issues so far.

Pros: This is my third Xeno. I have the 2012, 2013 and now the 2014. I am a power hitter and I can always trust my Xeno. It has great pop and the sound is just AWESOME! Last year, I hit 23 homeruns with the 2013 , lots of triples and doubles too. It still has lots of pop, but I had to get the 2014 just because I love the colors. It seems to have just as much pop as the previous two. Hopefully, I will have just as many homeruns this year as I did last year.

Cons: None so far

Good morning! My daughter is a smaller 14U player (4' 11" and weighs 86 lbs.). We currently use a CF6 30" 20 oz. and have used the 2013 XENO same size. We are looking for a 32" bat with a nice balanced feel and swing. She is a contact hitter and slapper. What would you suggest?

Based on her height and weight we typically recommend a 31" 21 oz. bat. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is a very balanced bat and ideal for a contact hitter.

87899

My daughter is 8 yrs old she uses a 30 in 17 oz drop 13 DeMarini Bustos. She has good bat speed with it, but she is having a little trouble because it is end loaded. Do you think a Xeno would be better, even if it is 3 oz heavier than what she is using now?

No, if she is having trouble with a 30" 17 oz., she will continue to struggle with the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR). I would recommend a Miken Halo Light or the Easton FS3. These will be composite bats that feature a lighter, more balanced swing weight.

87813

Does it come in a -11? I am 5' 3" and 13 years old.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR Fastpitch) is a -10 and has the lightest length to weight ratio of the Xeno bats. There are also -8 and -9 length to weight options, but there is not a -11.

87451

My daughter plays 14u and is in the market for a new bat. We previously have had Demarini cf6. She is between the 2014 lxt and 2014 zeno in 33/23. Can you tell me the differences between the 2 bats. She has used both that her teammates have. I don't like the sound of the xeno, but ultimately shes the one using the bat. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

The difference between the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) and the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT (FPLX14-RR) is that the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno is a two-piece design where as the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT is a three-piece design. Both bats are very balanced. Also the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT comes with a 30-day performance promise. So you can use this bat and if you don't like it you can return for a full refund.

87304

When will the 2015 be out?

Answer Question

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch came out in September or 2013. Although we do not have a release date yet it should be around the same time.

86996

I'm in the market for the new Xeno fastpitch bat. But I have an opportunity to buy a brand new XENO 32 inch 22 ounce FP11X (2011) model. Is there a big difference between the two models?

The major difference between the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch and the Louisville Slugger TPS XENO Composite (FP11X) Fastpitch would be that the 2014 uses the Pure 360 composite material which increases the durability of the bat. Other than that they will be very similar in terms of design.

86785

Which would feel heavier during the swing a 33" 25 oz. or the 34" 24 oz. Or would they feel the same?

If your comparing two bats that are the same size as what your are comparing above the 34" 24 oz. will feel a little lighter and swing a little bit easier then the 33" 25 oz. It wont be anything that will feel drastically different then the other.

86427

My daughter is 5'8", 155 lbs. What size bat would you recommend? She has long arms strong legs, she plays on both high school varsity team & travel.

Based on her height and weight we recommend a 33" 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR).

85804

My daughter is 17 years old. 5'6" 135lbs. She plays on her high school varsity team and plays on an 18A travel team. She has used an Anderson 32" -9 end weighted for the last 3 years. What size and weight XENO do you suggest?

Based on her approximate height and weight. I would suggest going with a length of 33 inches. It probably wouldn't hurt either to increase the weight of the bat as well, since she has used a -9 for the past few years. Going with a 33 inch 25 ounce would be a slight increase (-8) however, if you wanted to increase the weight even more, that would also be a possibility as well. Ultimately, it will come down to what feels most comfortable for her to swing.

85627

Do they make this bat with a -11 length to weight ratio?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xenos only come with a -8, -9, or -10 length to weight ratio. The -10 length to weight ration would be the lightest option available.

85461

Is this more of an end loaded bat or is the weight even

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch has a balanced swing weight.

85460

Is this more of an end loaded bat or is the weight balanced?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch has a balanced swing weight.

85088

I'm 17 and I am 5'6 and 140 lbs. I play for my high school varsity team and also an 18u travel team. Which 2014 Xeno bat would you reccomend for me?

We would recommend a 33" bat for someone of your height and weight, although the length of the bat can fluctuate by 1" up or down depending on your preference. We have a -8, -9, and a -10 version of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno also, and what drop you get will depend on several factors such as strength, comfort with previous bat weights, etc.

85076

I'm 18 years old. I'm 5 foot 5 and weigh about 130 pounds. What size bat should I get?

Based on your height and weight, we would suggest the 33 inch size of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch bat.

84793

I just bought the 2014 Xeno (FPXN14-RR Fastpitch), is it safe to use it in the cold?

We do not recommend playing in temperatures colder than 55 degrees out. The temperature effects the balls, not the bat and there is a higher number of damaged bats reported when the temperature is under 55 degrees. We also recommend to not store your bat in places where it is below 65 degrees.

84730

Hello, looking to get my daughter her first Xeno bat. She is 12 years old about 105 pounds and 5' 1" tall. What size bat would you recommend? She is currently swinging a 33" 22 oz. DeMarini Vendetta. Thanks.

Based on her height ans weight we recommend a 32" 22 oz. 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR),

84657

My daughter is 11 years old. She is 5 foot 7 and weighs 115 pounds. Should we try to go lighter with a 22 ounce bat or stick with 24 ounce?

If the player is able to swing the heavier bat without losing bat speed, it would be more beneficial to use the heavier option. If you think of it as a physics equation, mass times inertia equals force, the heavier the bat you use, the more power you can produce. That being said, it is important that the player can swing the bat comfortably and have good timing with the weight you chose.

84647

My daughter plays fastpitch softball. She is 15 years old. She is 5 foot 10 and weighs 207 pounds. What size Xeno bat do you recommend?

Based on the player's height and weight, we would suggest a 34 inch size of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-R8). We would also suggest the -8 length to weight ratio if the player is comfortable swinging a bat that heavy.

84481

My daughter is 9 years old and weighs 70 lbs. and is 4'5". What bat and what size would you recommend?

Based on her height and weight, we recommend a 30" 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR). For more information on sizing, check out our Bat Coach: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

84315

my daughter plays for many teams and play all year round she has a cf5 now and really wants this bat she is 5'7" and weighs about 159 lbs is this a good bat for her?

Absolutely, the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch would be awesome choice for your daughter.

84228

My daughter is 5 foot 5 inches and weighs 79 pounds and is a great batter. Can you help me tell if the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno is out of her league? If so, what bat do you recommend ? She swings a 30.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is a great choice for contact hitters. It is a very balanced bat that I do not believe will be too much for her to handle. Using our Bat Coach, I determined the best size for a player of her size would be the 32".

84186

My daughter is 10 years old and plays in a 10u travel softball league. She is 4 foot 10 and weighs 102 pounds. Is this 2014 Xeno out of her league?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch model is a great fastpitch bat. I will say that given your daughter's height and weight, the -10 length to weight ratio may be slightly heavy for her. If she has been able to swing that weight in the past, the Xeno would be a great option.

83773

My 14 year old 6' tall, 150 pound daughter who plays elite select fast pitch wants a XENO. Which one does she need.? Her 14 A team plays from 14 A to 18 open teams.

We would suggest that she use a 34" in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch.

83573

My daughter is 13, 5'3" and weighs 105 lbs. She plays middle school and travel ball. What one would you recommend?

Based on her height and weight, we recommend a 32" model in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch.

83358

My daughter is 13 years old, 5' 7" tall and approximately 145 lbs. What bat weight/length and drop size would you recommend? I've always heard DeMarini's are the best. Thoughts?

Based on her height and weight we recommend a 33" 30 oz. 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR). The Xeno uses quality composite materials and is very high performing. The Xeno is very comparable to the DeMarin bat line.

83265

What drop size should I get for my daughter? She is 5' 4", she weighs 119 lbs and is 13 years old.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch comes in a -10 length to weight ratio. That drop size is the most common among fastpitch players. For your daughters height and weight, I would recommend a 32".

83235

My daughter is 13, 5'5 and weighs 130. What size bat would you reccomend for her?

For your daughter we would recommend a 33" for the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR).

83094

My daughter is 13, 62.5" and about 100-105 lbs. Also, she was just moved to left side. What size bat would I need? I was thinking 31/21.

Yes, the 31" length could work for her on the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch. A 32" would also be a good size for her as well.

82898

Would you recommend this bat for a power hitter, if not what bat?

A two-piece bat such as the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is typically used by a contact hitter. However, the Xeno is often used by power hitters. If you have power, we recommend using a heavier Xeno bat such as the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-R8).

81824

The Xeno label on my daughters bat is chipping away with every hit she makes. Is there anything that can be done for that?

The bat warranty from Louisville Slugger should cover this on the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch. I would contact them at this direct number: 1-800-282-2287.

81520

What are temperature guidelines for use in cool or cold weather? In other words, what is the lowest temperature that it is safe to use Xeno bat without damaging the bat?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch, in temperatures below 55°F (13°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

81373

Does it meet the new USSSA bat standards? It looks like it has the ASA stamp, but not the USSSA.

Yes. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch bat has the 1.20 BPF USSSA stamp.

81207

Does the 2014 Xeno have more 'Pop' than last years?

Both the 2013 and the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno are both very high performing bats. You will not see a difference in performance from either one, but the 2014 will be slightly more durable.

81061

My daughter is 18 years old, 5'6" and weighs 120 lbs. What size bat would you recommend?

Based on her height and weight, we recommend a 33" model in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch.

80774

My daughter is 18 years old 5' 5" and 140 lbs on an 18U Fastpitch team and varsity high school team. Which bat size do you recommend?

We typically do not recommend a -10 bat such as the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch for an older player. We recommend a 33" 25 oz. 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-R8 Fastpitch.

80462

This bat has a 2004 ASA certified stamp on it. Will this be legal for 2014 ASA fastpitch tournaments? Someone told me it has to have a 2012 ASA stamp!

ASA Fastpitch softball will not require a new ASA performance certification for the 2014 season. ASA made a change to the Slow Pitch softball performance certification, but not the Fastpitch softball regulation. All 2014 Fastpitch softball bats being produced will carry the 2004 ASA stamp which is all that you will need for ASA play. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch is approved for the 2014 season.

My daughter in an 8 year old (4'8", 85 pounds) who plays travel softball. She generates very good power, but this is more because of great bat speed than because of pure brute force.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 are both very balanced bats with great pop. Based on her height and weight we recommend a 30" 20 oz.

My daughter is about to move up to 12U softball. She is 4'10" and currently uses the 30" drop 10 Xeno. She is pretty strong. What size bat could she move up to? Also, we play a fair number of games in 40-50 degree weather. I assume she will need to use an aluminum bat for the colder temps. Thanks.

Based on that information, the player could move up to a 31" model in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch bat. We recommend limiting the use on composite barrel bats in temperatures below 55 degrees.

I would like to find a bat with more pop than my Easton FS2. I would like to buy this bat, but I am so concerned with durability. Is this bat better than the past Xeno's durability? What is the lowest temp I should use it in?

Is this bat or CF6 better for power hitters?

If you were looking at a balanced version of the CF6, this 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch is very similar in design. Both bats are two-piece composites with balanced swing weights which could be good options for a power hitter. Typically, power hitters will benefit more from an end loaded bat like the CF6 Insane: DXCFI.

My daughter is 5' 4". She has a 32" 22 oz. right now and is wanting to move up. I am very concerned about these bats durability as I'm hearing a lot break and don't last.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch has been upgraded from the 2013 model with Louisville Slugger's Pure 360 Composite, which improves durability and performance. We've had great feedback on the durability. Based on her size, I recommend moving up to a 33" 23 oz.

Can you make this bat 31" 18 or 19oz, my daughter is 9 and is taller for her age but lacks bat speed at 21&22oz. Love the pop I've see with this bat, and a lot of 10U players have this problem.

Unfortunately Louisville Slugger does not produce the Xeno anything lighter than the -10 drop. They only offer it in a -8, -9 and -10 drop. Louisville Slugger offers the M2 Pride in a -12 drop. It will also be a two-piece full composite design.
