Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 Youth
In one response it is indicated that the barrel size of the Omaha YB136 youth is too small for machine pitch and in another response it is indicated that it is fine, please clarify .
The Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha (YB136) Youth bat features a 2 1/4 inch barrel. This barrel, in general, would be approved for machine pitch play. However, some leagues will allow for the use of a bigger barrel bat which would be more advantageous for the player to use. If you are unsure what your specific league allows, it would be best to contact your coach or league office and asking them about barrel size restrictions before making a purchase.

My son is 4'7", and is a left handed contact hitter. He doesn't have much power, but is more than capable of dropping the ball into the shallow outfield. He had a lot of luck with the 2013 Easton Reflex, but may need a new bat due to growing. How will this one stack up?

The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 Youth will be similar to the Reflex. It is a balanced, light weight one-piece alloy bat. The Warrior would also be a good balanced choice as well.

My 9 year old is 51" tall and 60 lbs. Do you think 27" and 14 oz. is the right size?
Based on his size, a 28" model of the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 is the recommended size.
My son is 5 years old and is in Tee Ball right now, he will be in pitching machine next year. He is about 4 ft tall and about 45 lbs, what length and weight should I get him? He swings a 11.5 oz. now. Is this bat good for the machine without denting?
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 would have too small of a barrel for machine pitch. Machine pitch leagues allow a 2 3/4" barrel which would give you son more area to hit the ball. With the height and weight given I would suggest a 27" bat. The Easton S1 JBB13S1 Junior Big Barrel would be perfect in the 27" 15 oz. model.

Reflex or Omaha for a 7 yr old going to coach/ kid pitch? What size would you recommend for 43 lbs and 44 inches tall?
Based on his height and weight we recommend a 27" 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 Youth.
My son is 7 years old and is currently utilizing the Easton Reflex 28", 15oz. The bat seems a little too long for him and being that he is a small kid I was thinking of purchasing the Louisville Omaha 27", 14oz. Not sure if that would make much of a difference. He is playing on a 7U travel team this summer and I would rather have him get situated with a bat sooner rather than later. Would this bat be a good option? Is there something else that you would recommend? He is approximately 4' tall and weighs about 45 pounds. Thank you.
The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 is a well balanced bat similar in construction to the Easton Reflex. The Omaha is also known for it great durability. It would be a very good choice for your son.
I have noticed the gold model has more pop is this true to any others?

I was looking for a youth bat for my 8 yr old. He has good swing speed. He's 69lbs. and 4ft. tall. By comparison which would be better Louisville Slugger Omaha, Vertex, DeMarini Voodoo, or the Easton Omen?
Using the Bat Coach Feature on justbats.com I was able to find out that your 8 year old should be swinging a bat length of 27". I would rather have him swinging a 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 Youth or a 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Vertex: YB13V Youth. The 2013 DeMarini Voodoo and the Easton Omen will have heavier swing weights and feel slightly end loaded. The 2013 Louisville Slugger line markets their bats with the lowest MOI in the industry. Which means the easiest swinging, lightest feeling bats around. The 2013 Omaha will be a One-Piece all Alloy design. The 2013 Vertex will be a Two-Piece design. It will feature an Alloy barrel with a Composite handle. Two-Piece bats tend to eliminate a more vibration that may travel to the hitters hands. Neither the Omaha or Vertex will require any break-in period. All of these bats will come with a Full 12 Month Warranty through their manufacturer.
Is this also going be in big barrel?
The big barrel model is available for purchase on our website at; http://www.justbats.com/product/2013-louisville-slugger-tpx-omaha--sl136-senior-league/16503/.
