Questions and Answers for 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN14-RR

Does this xeno bat have a stiffer feel than the demarini cf7?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFF) are both going to be two-piece designed bats which allows for a whip like effect through the zone. Neither bat is going to feel as stiff as a one-piece designed bat would.

My daughter uses a 2014 Xeno 32/22 in the late spring and early fall seasons. Is there an aluminum bat with the same drop and balance that you would recommend for colder weather?

We don't recommend using 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN14-RR or any bat under 55 degree weather due to how dense the balls become and that effecting the durability of the bat.

Ryan Expert ·Nov 25, 2014

When is it too cold to use the Xeno?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Louisville Slugger XENO (FPXN14-RR), in temperatures below 55°F (13°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

Is it okay to use with the dimple balls from the machine?

If at all possible, it is best to avoid the dimple cage balls with the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR). The dimple balls are more dense than standard softballs and can cause durability problems with the bat.

Jason Expert ·Sep 30, 2014

Is it balanced or end-loaded?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) is a balanced design.

My daughter has the FPLX14-RR. Which new bat would match this one that she currently uses? She has a 33" 23 oz model.

The new model of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) is the 2015 Louisville Slugger XENO Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN150).

What does the rr in fpxn14-rr mean?

The RR in the model number of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) is just the code that designates which drop weight the bat is.

What is the main difference between the Xeno and the Lt Xeno?

If you are referring to the 2015 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX150) when you say the "lt xeno", they would actually be two different models. The LXT is similar to the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) in that they both feature the S1iD technology that minimizes break in time and maximizes barrel reinforcement. They are different in their connection point technology. The LXT features the TRU3 3 piece technology that the Xeno does not which features more advanced sting or vibration protection and slightly more flex than the connection point on the Xeno. The Xeno will, therefore, have a stiffer feel.

If I buy a 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno bat off of this website and it breaks, what are the return policies?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) is featured under a full 12 month manufacturer's warranty. If the bat breaks within those 12 months after the purchase, the bat will be eligible for replacement directly through Louisville Slugger. They require that the bat be sent back to them to be eligible for warranty replacement.

What is the difference between the 2014 Xeno and the new 2015 Xeno?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) and the 2015 Xeno are almost identical bats. The only difference is the cosmetic appearance.

Jason Expert ·Aug 05, 2014

I just bought this bat for my daughter. The Xeno makes a different sound than other bats when hit. Is that normal?

Absolutely. The S1iD Inner Disc Technology in the barrel of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) seems to attribute to the sound. As long as you're not noticing a sharp decline in performance, the bat should be just fine.

My daughter is 12, 5'3" and 120 lbs. She hits line drives and fly balls. Is the 2104 Xeno for her? Or should we be looking at a different bat?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat: (FPXN14-RR) has been extremely popular and is going to be a very high performing model. This bat is going to be ideal for contact-hitters. The two-piece, balanced, full composite design, makes it easy for players to generate added bat speed through the swing zone. The two-piece structure will also provide players with some added flex. Overall, I think this model will work extremely well.

My daughter weighs 105 lbs and her height is 5'. What size bat do you recommend?

Based on her height and weight, we suggest a 31" model in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR).

My daughter is 16 years old she is 5 foot 9 and weighs 180. Her coach recommends a 34 inch 24 ounce bat. She currently uses a 33 inch 23 ounce and does very well. Should I get the bigger bat?

Based on her height and weight, a 34 inch 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN14-RR) would be something that would probably fit. In general, the best policy is to have the player swing the heaviest bat they are comfortable swinging without losing bat speed. The heavier the bat, if the swing speed stays the same, the more power they can produce.

Patrick Expert ·Jul 03, 2014

Wondering what size bat my daughter should swing? She is 5'1" and 110 lbs.

My daughter is 13 and has had a DeMarini Vendetta for a while now looking to upgrade. Her current bat is a -12. She is 5'6" and weighs 130 lbs. What size would she need?

If she has good bat speed I would recommend a 33" 23 oz. for her height and weight. If she doesn't have a quick bat I would recommend a 33" 22 oz., drop -11.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) would be an awesome choice for your daughter. I would recommend a 31" bat based on her height and weight.

15 years old- 118 pounds 5ft 4 in -- slapper -- hits right and left.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) would be a great fit for a slap hitter. I would recommend a 32" bat based on your height and weight.

I'm 5'2" and I weigh about 130 lbs. I want to get a 2015 Xeno but I don't know what size and weight to get. I'm a power hitter and I bunt very often.

Based on your approximate height and weight, I would suggest a 32/22 in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: (FPXN14-RR). Therefore, this size would also work well if you are considering moving up to the 2015 Louisville Slugger Xeno as well.

Merritt Expert ·May 29, 2014

My daughter is 5' 2" and 135 lbs. She's going into high school and wants to get a new bat. What should we get. It needs lots of pop.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR Fastpitch) would be a great model if you're looking for a balanced bat with lots of pop. The two-piece fully composite design will also allow for faster swing speeds and higher performance.

Brandon Expert ·May 28, 2014

I am a power hitter. Would I be better off with the Xeno or DeMarini CF6 Insane to match me best? I am also 5'9" and 180 lbs. What size is suggested?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch tends to be better for contact hitters because of the balanced swing weight. The DeMarini CF6 Insane is an ideal bat for power hitters because of the end loaded swing weight. Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 34" model.

Jason Expert ·May 27, 2014

My daughter is 4'8 and weighs 100 lbs. and is starting High School in the fall. She will be playing softball and I would like to upgrade her bat. What length do you recommend I get?

Can this bat be used with soft toss balls?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is intended to be used only with approved softballs. If it is used with another style of ball, the durability could be affected. The bats are designed, rated, and tested very specifically to be as high performing with real softballs as possible given the restrictions enforced for play so they would not be tested for hitting other objects.

I am looking to upgrade my daughter's bat. She is turning 13 and is small for her age. She is approximately 4'7" and 69 lbs. She is currently using a 29" 20 oz bat. She is not a power hitter, but has solid infield hits and bunts. Would this be a good bat for her and what size?

Based on her approximate height and weight, the suggested size we would recommend would be 30 inches in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: (FPXN14-RR). However, a 29 inch would also work as well. This model will fit her playing style as a contact hitter. The two-piece design will provide plenty of flex as she swings through the zone, or bunts. The LS-2X composite material will also give some good pop throughout the span of its lifetime, and would be an excellent choice for her.

It says this is good to go out of the wrapper. Does it need a break in period before hitting in a game situation?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch bat does not require a break-in period. The S1iD Inner Disc technology provides the performance right out of the wrapper.

My player currently swings a 33" 23 oz, 2012 FP12X TPS Xeno. She's always swung a balanced bat and the 2012 Xeno is the perfect length and weight. She's going to buy a 2014 FPXN14 but isn't sure of the drop. We've heard that the 2014 -10 drop swings light; is that true? Should she stick with the 33" 23 oz. or go up to a 34" 24 oz.? She's never swung an end load, could the extra ounce in a 33" 24 oz. be too much of a change and throw off her swing?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is a balanced bat. The length of the bat is best determined by a players height and weight. If she has good bat speed with the 33" 23 oz., we would recommend to move to a 24 oz. bat. Here is a link to our bat coach to determine the correct length: http://www.batwarehouse.com/bat-coach/

My daughter is 17 years old 5'5" and about 195 lbs. We got her a 2014 33" 23 oz. -10 Xeno. She used it maybe three times. She said it's too light. Should we get a 34" 24 oz. or find one that is drop 9? During high school ball she used a RockeTech. We believe the weight on it is 33" 23 oz. ,not for sure, but she said that the Xeno was lighter than the RockeTech so she used the RockeTech. She wants a Xeno.

The RockeTech is slightly end loaded and is a 33" 24 oz. If she likes the weight of the RockeTech, the 34" 24 oz. 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is a good choice.

My daughter is 5'7" and 140 lbs. She tends to have a slower swing. What size and brand of bat would work well for her?

We recommend a 33" 23 oz. for her height and weight. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is a very balanced bat. This will help with a player with slower bat speed.

Tired of buying bats by not being able to demo first. We just tried the CF6 in a 33" 23 oz. and it did not work out. Currently she swings a Black XENO 2012 33" 23 oz. I think. What is the difference between the black XENO 2012, Xeno 2014 and the Easton MAKO? All in the 33" 23 oz.. My daughter is 12 years old. 5' 7" and around 160 -170 lbs. Thanks

All three bats are two-piece composite bats and are very high performing. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) and the Louisville Slugger TPS XENO Composite (FP12X) both use the same high performing LS-2X composite materials. The 2014 Easton MAKO (FP14MK) has a slightly longer barrel for a bigger sweet spot.

My daughter is currently using the 2014 Demarini CF6. She is 5'2" and 95 lbs., solid hitter. Would this bat be a good choice for her? If so, what size would you recommend?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is very similar to the DeMarini CF6. It is a great option for a player her size. Based on her height and weight we recommend a 32" 22 oz. bat.

My 10 yr. old daughter is 5'4", weighs 106 and is the power hitter on her 10u team. Is a 31 inch bat the right size?

Our Bat Coach recommends a 32" length in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-44) based on her height and weight. If she would like to go down to a 31" length she cant its really based on her personal preference.

My daughter is 5' and weighs 87 lbs. She is not a power hitter. She currently has a 30" 19 oz. bat. Would a 31" bat be too heavy for her?

We recommend a 30" 20 oz. 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR). We recommend not to increase to a 31" 21 oz. unless she is a power hitter.

My daughter is 16 years old, 5'7" 1/2 and 150 lbs. She currently has a DeMarini CF5 Insane 33/23. She's in the market for a new bat and is looking at the Xeno and the DeMarini CF7 Insane. She is a good hitter when she makes solid contact, but tends to pop a lot of balls up. Which bat would be a better option for her? Also, is the 33" length still a good length for her?

Based on her approximate height and weight, the suggested length we would recommend would be 33 inches. Also, based on her hitting style, I would probably recommend looking for a more balanced bat. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: (FPXN14-RR) will be extremely balanced and the even weight distribution will make it easier to swing through a little bit faster and smoother.

We are looking for a good team bat. Do you have any suggestions? We play 19 and older recreational ladies fastball.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: (FPXN14-RR) would actually be a really great bat to take a look at it. It has been extremely popular and highly reviewed as well. The two-piece composite design makes it great for players who are contact hitters and power hitters. It will be pretty versatile for players, and will also be high performing. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 Hope: (DXCFH) has also been very popular, and would be a great option to take a look at. It will also be a two-piece composite design and will have a really great sweet spot on the barrel.

What size and weight Xeno for my daughter who is 14 years old, 5'8", lefty, about 175 lbs. I'm thinking 34 inch. She has a tendency to drop her shoulder some swings so would the lighter one help correct this?

Based on her height and weight we recommend a 34" 24 oz. 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR). A 33" 23 oz. bat would help her increase her swing speed.

Based on your height and weight, our Bat Coach sizing tool (http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/) recommends a 33" or 34" bat. To help choose between the two sizes, you would really need to try out both sizes that a friend or teammate had to determine which you felt more comfortable with.

Good morning! My daughter is a smaller 14U player (4' 11" and weighs 86 lbs.). We currently use a CF6 30" 20 oz. and have used the 2013 XENO same size. We are looking for a 32" bat with a nice balanced feel and swing. She is a contact hitter and slapper. What would you suggest?

Based on her height and weight we typically recommend a 31" 21 oz. bat. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is a very balanced bat and ideal for a contact hitter.

Kara Expert ·Apr 14, 2014

My daughter is 8 yrs old she uses a 30 in 17 oz drop 13 DeMarini Bustos. She has good bat speed with it, but she is having a little trouble because it is end loaded. Do you think a Xeno would be better, even if it is 3 oz heavier than what she is using now?

No, if she is having trouble with a 30" 17 oz., she will continue to struggle with the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR). I would recommend a Miken Halo Light or the Easton FS3. These will be composite bats that feature a lighter, more balanced swing weight.

Justin R. Expert ·Apr 13, 2014

Does it come in a -11? I am 5' 3" and 13 years old.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR Fastpitch) is a -10 and has the lightest length to weight ratio of the Xeno bats. There are also -8 and -9 length to weight options, but there is not a -11.

My daughter plays 14u and is in the market for a new bat. We previously have had Demarini cf6. She is between the 2014 lxt and 2014 zeno in 33/23. Can you tell me the differences between the 2 bats. She has used both that her teammates have. I don't like the sound of the xeno, but ultimately shes the one using the bat. Any information would be helpful. Thanks

The difference between the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) and the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT (FPLX14-RR) is that the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno is a two-piece design where as the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT is a three-piece design. Both bats are very balanced. Also the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT comes with a 30-day performance promise. So you can use this bat and if you don't like it you can return for a full refund.

Answer Question

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch came out in September or 2013. Although we do not have a release date yet it should be around the same time.

I'm in the market for the new Xeno fastpitch bat. But I have an opportunity to buy a brand new XENO 32 inch 22 ounce FP11X (2011) model. Is there a big difference between the two models?

The major difference between the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch and the Louisville Slugger TPS XENO Composite (FP11X) Fastpitch would be that the 2014 uses the Pure 360 composite material which increases the durability of the bat. Other than that they will be very similar in terms of design.

Which would feel heavier during the swing a 33" 25 oz. or the 34" 24 oz. Or would they feel the same?

If your comparing two bats that are the same size as what your are comparing above the 34" 24 oz. will feel a little lighter and swing a little bit easier then the 33" 25 oz. It wont be anything that will feel drastically different then the other.

My daughter is 5'8", 155 lbs. What size bat would you recommend? She has long arms strong legs, she plays on both high school varsity team & travel.

Kara Expert ·Mar 25, 2014

My daughter is 17 years old. 5'6" 135lbs. She plays on her high school varsity team and plays on an 18A travel team. She has used an Anderson 32" -9 end weighted for the last 3 years. What size and weight XENO do you suggest?

Based on her approximate height and weight. I would suggest going with a length of 33 inches. It probably wouldn't hurt either to increase the weight of the bat as well, since she has used a -9 for the past few years. Going with a 33 inch 25 ounce would be a slight increase (-8) however, if you wanted to increase the weight even more, that would also be a possibility as well. Ultimately, it will come down to what feels most comfortable for her to swing.

Merritt Expert ·Mar 16, 2014

85627

Do they make this bat with a -11 length to weight ratio?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xenos only come with a -8, -9, or -10 length to weight ratio. The -10 length to weight ration would be the lightest option available.

Justin R. Expert ·Mar 14, 2014

I'm 17 and I am 5'6 and 140 lbs. I play for my high school varsity team and also an 18u travel team. Which 2014 Xeno bat would you reccomend for me?

We would recommend a 33" bat for someone of your height and weight, although the length of the bat can fluctuate by 1" up or down depending on your preference. We have a -8, -9, and a -10 version of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno also, and what drop you get will depend on several factors such as strength, comfort with previous bat weights, etc.

I just bought the 2014 Xeno (FPXN14-RR Fastpitch), is it safe to use it in the cold?

We do not recommend playing in temperatures colder than 55 degrees out. The temperature effects the balls, not the bat and there is a higher number of damaged bats reported when the temperature is under 55 degrees. We also recommend to not store your bat in places where it is below 65 degrees.

Hello, looking to get my daughter her first Xeno bat. She is 12 years old about 105 pounds and 5' 1" tall. What size bat would you recommend? She is currently swinging a 33" 22 oz. DeMarini Vendetta. Thanks.

Based on her height ans weight we recommend a 32" 22 oz. 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR),

My daughter is 11 years old. She is 5 foot 7 and weighs 115 pounds. Should we try to go lighter with a 22 ounce bat or stick with 24 ounce?

If the player is able to swing the heavier bat without losing bat speed, it would be more beneficial to use the heavier option. If you think of it as a physics equation, mass times inertia equals force, the heavier the bat you use, the more power you can produce. That being said, it is important that the player can swing the bat comfortably and have good timing with the weight you chose.

My daughter plays fastpitch softball. She is 15 years old. She is 5 foot 10 and weighs 207 pounds. What size Xeno bat do you recommend?

Based on the player's height and weight, we would suggest a 34 inch size of the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-R8). We would also suggest the -8 length to weight ratio if the player is comfortable swinging a bat that heavy.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is a great choice for contact hitters. It is a very balanced bat that I do not believe will be too much for her to handle. Using our Bat Coach, I determined the best size for a player of her size would be the 32".

My daughter is 10 years old and plays in a 10u travel softball league. She is 4 foot 10 and weighs 102 pounds. Is this 2014 Xeno out of her league?

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) Fastpitch model is a great fastpitch bat. I will say that given your daughter's height and weight, the -10 length to weight ratio may be slightly heavy for her. If she has been able to swing that weight in the past, the Xeno would be a great option.

Would you recommend this bat for a power hitter, if not what bat?

A two-piece bat such as the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-RR) is typically used by a contact hitter. However, the Xeno is often used by power hitters. If you have power, we recommend using a heavier Xeno bat such as the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno (FPXN14-R8).

Kara Expert ·Feb 06, 2014

The Xeno label on my daughters bat is chipping away with every hit she makes. Is there anything that can be done for that?

What are temperature guidelines for use in cool or cold weather? In other words, what is the lowest temperature that it is safe to use Xeno bat without damaging the bat?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch, in temperatures below 55°F (13°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

This bat has a 2004 ASA certified stamp on it. Will this be legal for 2014 ASA fastpitch tournaments? Someone told me it has to have a 2012 ASA stamp!

ASA Fastpitch softball will not require a new ASA performance certification for the 2014 season. ASA made a change to the Slow Pitch softball performance certification, but not the Fastpitch softball regulation. All 2014 Fastpitch softball bats being produced will carry the 2004 ASA stamp which is all that you will need for ASA play. The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch is approved for the 2014 season.

My daughter in an 8 year old (4'8", 85 pounds) who plays travel softball. She generates very good power, but this is more because of great bat speed than because of pure brute force.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 are both very balanced bats with great pop. Based on her height and weight we recommend a 30" 20 oz.

My daughter is about to move up to 12U softball. She is 4'10" and currently uses the 30" drop 10 Xeno. She is pretty strong. What size bat could she move up to? Also, we play a fair number of games in 40-50 degree weather. I assume she will need to use an aluminum bat for the colder temps. Thanks.

Based on that information, the player could move up to a 31" model in the 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch bat. We recommend limiting the use on composite barrel bats in temperatures below 55 degrees.

Is this bat or CF6 better for power hitters?

If you were looking at a balanced version of the CF6, this 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch is very similar in design. Both bats are two-piece composites with balanced swing weights which could be good options for a power hitter. Typically, power hitters will benefit more from an end loaded bat like the CF6 Insane: DXCFI.

My daughter is 5' 4". She has a 32" 22 oz. right now and is wanting to move up. I am very concerned about these bats durability as I'm hearing a lot break and don't last.

The 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch has been upgraded from the 2013 model with Louisville Slugger's Pure 360 Composite, which improves durability and performance. We've had great feedback on the durability. Based on her size, I recommend moving up to a 33" 23 oz.

Unfortunately Louisville Slugger does not produce the Xeno anything lighter than the -10 drop. They only offer it in a -8, -9 and -10 drop. Louisville Slugger offers the M2 Pride in a -12 drop. It will also be a two-piece full composite design.
