Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR
Is this bat better than the DeMarini cf7 -10 bat?
The 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX14-RR) and the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Fastpitch Softball Bat (DXCFP) are both nice models and would compare very closely in terms of overall design and performance. Preference between the two would come down to which brand you prefer. They are both top of the line models.
What are the differences between the 2014 and the 2015 LXT?
The 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX14-RR) and the 2015 LXT are identical bats. The only difference is the cosmetic appearance.
My daughter is 16, 5'9" 165 lbs. Doesn't have great bat speed so relies more on timing, but very strong. What length and weight would you recommend? Xeno or LXT?
Based on her height and weight, our Bat Coach recommends a 34" 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPLX14-RR). Sizing is preferential though, so if she would feel more comfortable going with a 33", that is something to take into consideration as well. Based on how you described her style, the LXT may be better suited for her. Since it features a three-piece design, it will provide for more flex on contact. The additional flex can cause a whip-like action that helps the head of the bat whip forward at the moment of contact, generating more inertia and power. The Xeno is a great option as well, however, the two-piece design will not provide the same amount of flex the LXT can.
My daughter's LXT cracked last night. How are they in regards to their warranty?
The 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT (FPLX14-RR) features a full 12 month manufacturer's warranty through Louisville Slugger. The replacement of the bat would go directly through Louisville Slugger.

The best way to break-in a composite bat, like the 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT (FPLX14-RR) Fastpitch, is to take 150-200 swings off a tee while rotating the barrel.

What bat would you recommend for a slapper, the 2014 LXT or the Xeno 2014?
The 2014 Louisville Slugger LXT: FPLX14-RR Fastpitch and 2014 Louisville Slugger Xeno: FPXN14-RR Fastpitch are both great choices for a slapper, as they're well-balanced and will be easy to control. The benefit of the LXT is the TRU3 Technology that it features, which is a three-piece design that will reduce vibration in the hands by sending it back up into the barrel for a smoother feel on contact. A short-game slapper will do well with the two-piece Xeno. For a player who occasionally hits from the left side or slaps for power, the LXT would be a great choice, as the benefits of the TRU3 Technology will be enhanced on a more powerful swing. The LXT is backed by a 30-day Performance Promise, so it can be returned for a full refund or exchange if you are not satisfied with the performance.
