Louisville LXT Fastpitch Bat -8oz (2019)
MAD MAX says:
ALL NEW FOR 2019, the Louisville Slugger LXT is here. We have given this bat the nickname “The Angel” due to the white and gold colorway. For such a long time the LXT lived in the shadow of the Xeno as they both utilized the same technology in the barrel. They both had two metal disks on each side of a piece of foam in the sweet spot of the bat. However, now the LXT has removed one of the metal disks, allowing for a larger sweet spot. The LXT will give you the largest sweet spot in Louisville’s softball line. I have seen a lot of older girls make the switch from the Xeno to the LXT, and they feel it is giving them a little more power than the Xeno. Also with last year's model of the LXT, a lot of people complained that the Tru3 connection piece gave the bat a little too much flex, so Louisville Slugger answered back by developing the new VCX connection piece. This new connection piece makes the bat stiffer, allowing for more power. To put the cherry on top they gave this bat an very clean LS PRO Comfort Grip that matches the color of the bat and adds grip and comfort. The pitchers will want to flee when they see you swinging the all-new LXT.
One of the best bats in fastpitch is back and better than ever.
The LXT X19 fastpitch bat from Louisville Slugger features VCX Technology that allows for independent movement between the barrel and the handle, controlling vibration and providing unparalleled feel on contact.
