Louisville LXT Fastpitch Bat -9oz (2018)
Top level power.
MAD MAX says:
Louisville Slugger's saying for 2018 will be, "If it's not broken, don't fix it." The LXT is a three-piece bat. The Xeno, which is a two-piece bat, will be Louisville's other high-end composite bat. These two bats will be different in the regard that the LXT will have more flex to it. This means the barrel will actually whip back and then forward. Girls have also noted the LXT swings lighter because of the design. Louisville has improved the LXT in regards to the connection piece, making sure durability will be a non-issue this year. This model is the -9, which is more for a power hitter. For a girl who's swing is just too quick, the only thing to slow her down is to go heavier. The bat will only come in three sizes: 32/23, 33/24 and 34/25. With some minor changes, Louisville has featured a new endcap called the X-Cap, which will give it more of a sweet spot and a lighter swing weight. In the video above, one will see the inside of the older LXT; notice the two-metal disc surrounding the foam. In the 2017 and 2018 bats, there will only be one metal disc. This allows for a player to really get some good feedback when they hit the ball.
