Louisville Slugger Xeno
The Louisville Slugger XENO is a strong presence on the market right now. It has established itself as an incredible bat and continues to come out with advanced technological features that are rivaled by few.
Some of these features include:
- S1iD barrel technology
- This feature allows the barrel to flex in a way that simulates a bat which already has been broken into by a hitter. What this accomplishes is a bat that is extremely hot right out of the wrapper and needs no break-in period before hitters can enjoy improved in-game hitting performance with the XENO. This technology is unique to Louisville Slugger and really separates it as one of the premiere softball bats on the market today.
- TRU3 Technology
- This feature strengthens the unison between the barrel and handle which greatly reduces the impact of the ball on the bat and allows the players to enjoy a thoroughly better feel. This technology eliminates virtually all stings, even on poorly batted balls which send shocks through our forearms.
- iST Technology
- This feature focuses primarily on the stiffness of the handle. A stiff handle allows players to quickly accelerate their bat through the hitting zone while maintaining firm control. This allows for more solidly balls that come off the bat with authority and increased speeds.
All these features and technologies make for one very technologically advanced bat and a heavy player favorite. It’s a bat that’s engineered to be more contact hitter friendly as opposed to power hitting. However, it does and will add pop and distance to your swing. The bat has a balanced weight, has a drop 10 length to weight ratio, a 2 1/4 inch diameter and is approved for play in the ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF.
Overall a fantastic bat that you cannot go wrong with, and I absolutely recommend it. You can check out more softball bat reviews by following that link and I’ll talk to you soon!
