Louisville Slugger Z-3000
While not much changed or differs from the Z2000 bat, there’s still one minor improvement which may be of some significance to people.
The Z-3000 is a 3-piece fully constructed 360 composite bat while the Z-2000 is a 2-piece bat. What this aims to do is reduce the vibration sting felt in the hands when the ball is hit. This might be of significance to some, but not others. It really comes down to player and personal preference.
Apart from that, the bat features a 12 inch barrel and is considered one of the more technologically advanced bats on the market. It comes with Louisville Slugger’s S1iD Technology coupled with the TRU3 Technology which is utilized to greatly reduce those vibrations when contact is made.
This bat is approved for play in USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF and comes in 3 different forms.
- Louisville Slugger 2014 SB Z-3000 End Load Softball Bat, 34-Inch/28-Ounce
- Louisville Slugger 2014 SB Z-3000 Balanced Softball Bat, 34-Inch/26-Ounce
- Louisville Slugger 2014 SB Z-3000 End Load (ASA) Softball Bat, 34-Inch/26-Ounce
Have your choice depending on your style of play and league regulations.
This is by far one of the better bats out there and great for anyone who’s looking to add some serious pop to their swing and has a larger budget to work with. We have also done a review on the Louisville Slugger Z-4000 which is the 2016 new-and-improved version with some added technology.
With that said, I hope you guys found this review useful and if you have any comments, thoughts or questions be sure to send us an e-mail. Also if there’s any bat in specific you’d like for us to review, send in a request.
