2014 Louisville Slugger Z-3000 Balanced ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SBZ314-AB review by Jeremy Jordan
Pros: Pulled mine out of the wrapper tonight, bat never touched a ball until my first AB tonight..we use the 300/52 balls and I purchased a 26oz.(light i know but felt the best to me) first 2 AB's it took some adjusting to the weight....second game of the double hitter..i hit 3 line drives that hit the fence before the outfielders ever moved....This bat dose have a almost Golf Club like sound....I had several people asking me what the hell is that lol..it sounds broke..etc... truth be told Ive never felt like Ive ever mashed a ball that hard in my life...complete seeds. Very impressed with the pop so far.. hits the "mush ball" very well Cons:I will more than likely re tape the handle..the OEM one is good..I just prefer more the "baseball" tape style.. not really a big deal. I just hope the bat holds up.

Can you use this bat in USSSA? Going back and forth between leagues and would like a bat I can use in both.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-3000 Balanced ASA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SBZ314-AB) is only certified for play in ASA. It does not have the USSSA stamp. Here is a link to all the models we currently have that have both the ASA and USSSA stamps: http://goo.gl/81noAl

There have been many durability complaints and concerns about the Z-2000 & Z-3000 bats. What insight do you have about these concerns and the durability problems. I've seen and heard testimony where new Z-3000's have 4" cracks after a dozen or less swings. Is this bat truly unreliable for durability, or is more likely many of the accounts have somehow misused the bat? Like using older balls or hitting it in cold weather?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-3000 Balanced ASA (SBZ314-AB Slow Pitch) will be a very high performing bat. It is in fact created for the softer, more mushy .52 core balls. Hitting the harder .44 core balls may lower the durability of this bat at a quicker pace. The recommended temperature for use is 60 degrees or above.

Is this bat's barrel multi-wall? My league has recently banned multi-wall bats, and I'm not sure what the difference is between multiple walls and multi-layer composite.

This 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-3000 Balanced ASA (SBZ314-AB) Slow Pitch bat features the S1ID Inner Disc technology which your league will likely consider a Multi-Wall barrel design. You probably cannot use the Z-2000 or Z-3000 models because of this, but I would absolutely check with a league director. They should be able to provide a list of approved and non-approved bats. All composite bats are composed of multiple layers of materials, other than models like the COMBAT Portent that indicate otherwise, so it can be a bit confusing to decipher between the two.

Product Description

New for 2014! The hottest bat in slow pitch softball just got hotter! Regarded as one of the most technologically advanced bats on the field, the Z-3000 brings its S1iD Technology back to the diamond and pairs it with Louisville Slugger's new Tru3 Technology. This first ever 3-piece technology was created to strengthen the link between the barrel and handle, and give the Z-3000 a trampoline spring and dramatically reduced vibration on contact. This straighter, thicker rubber ring results in a bat that's not only sturdier, but feels better with every swing! The three-piece Z-3000 is built entirely from Louisville Slugger's 360 Composite. This thinner, high-strength, and lightweight composite is made from graphite fibers that allow more durability, while reducing overall wall thickness. Inside the barrel, SWING 1 inner Disc (S1iD) Technology allows the walls to flex to their maximum allowable level... even on the first swing! S1iD means that you get a larger, higher performing sweet spot right out of the wrapper! The Z-3000 features an end-loaded 12 inch pro-style barrel and a 7/8 inch standard handle with a newly designed synthetic grip for an outstanding feel. Louisville Slugger: Champions Swing Slugger! The Z-3000 is approved for play in ASA and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
