Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha Senior League Baseball Bat: SL126XL
My son is 11. He swung a 30" -11 Vexxum in Ripken this year. He also played some big barrel tourneys using a COMBAT Portent 31 -10 2 5/8. He is 5' and 99 lbs. He has a very high contact rate against all levels of pitching. He hits lots of doubles and few HR's. I'm looking at the 31" -10 2 5/8 Omaha for his fall league, which requires all aluminum bats. Given his size and the type of hitter he is, is this an appropriate bat size?
Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 30" model in the Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha Senior League Baseball Bat (SL126XL). However, moving up to the 31" model will work just fine for him because he has swung a 31" bat before. The extra length and mass he will get from the 31" will be beneficial for him.

My son is 50lbs and 6 years old. Ive determined he needs a 26" 16 oz bat. He has a couple years of coach pitch left, but i was wondering if i should go with this bat or the coach pitch bat?

I understand that the Omaha's alloy is more responsive than the Warrior's. The Omaha is not available in 30/25. All things being equal, would not a 30/25 Warrior out-hit the 31/21 Omaha?
Ideally a heavier bat will produce more power as long as it does not diminish the hitters bat speed.
My son will be playing on an 8U kid pitch team next year. I'm trying to decide between the big barrel Omaha and the 2 1/4 Omaha. What is the best way to make this choice?
Big barrel bats like the 2012 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha tend to have a slightly larger sweet spot. If you league allows big barrel bats, we would recommend using the 2 3/4 inch barrels like the SL126XL would be a great choice.
We have a Z1000 and Omaha, both 32 in -8. My son is very tall with a slow swing, the ball comes off the Omaha way better. Any idea why?
Often, if a composite bat is not broken in, the ball will not come off as well. An alloy bat is hot out of the wrapper and does not require a break-in period.
My 6yr son is starting machine pitch in the fall. What size would you recommend for him? He's pretty big and strong for his age. Hes about 4 foot and 60 pounds. He's been using a small barrel 27/17 during coach pitch and had no problems getting it around. I'm just looking at stepping up to a big barrel bat for him.
Based on his age an size, the average length bat would be 27 or 28 inches. Based on the size bat he has been using, a 17 to 19 ounce bat is recommended. Since he's had no problems with the 27" 17 oz bat, I would recommend a 28" 18 oz bat.
Will this bat in the -10 swing lighter in the 26/16 than the 28/18. My son is 10 and has a slow swing?
The 26" -10 Omaha weighs 16 ounces. The 28" -10 Omaha weighs 18 ounces. The 26" 16 oz model will have a lighter swing weight.
Will this bat be able to be used in 2013?
The Omaha is widely accepted, but it all depends on the league and the division you play in. I suggest checking with your coach for your official league rules.
Between this bat, the cf4, cf5, power brigade, and easton surge, which bat has the most power (I want to hit homers?) ALso, I am 5'8 and 110 lb. What size should I get?
A 31" Easton XL1: SL11X18 Senior League from the Power Brigade series will be the best bat for you for hitting homeruns. It is the only bat of the options you listed that is endloaded. Endloaded bats provide a little more power.
What size bat for a 12 year old that's 5'2" and 120 pounds?

What size of big barrel bat would be the best for a 10 yr old turning 11 yrs. that weighs 78 lbs and is 4'8"?

Quality, both are great bats. But in order to give you more informed advice, give our reps a call so they can ask you some questions to determine which one is best for your particular batting style.
What is the main differences between this model and the SL126 or the YB126BB? My son will be playing U8 coach pitch travel this spring and needs a big barrel bat. He has been using the easton stealth speed composite(28/17) for rec league and was having some problem getting around on the ball consistently. He used another boys RivalBB(27/17) and was hitting line drives like never before. I believe this has a lot to do with how the weigh is distributed in the bat.
The difference between the SL126 and the SL126XL is the barrel size...the XL is a 2 3/4 ' barrel opposed to the SL126 being a 2 5/8". The YB126BB is a 2 3/4 ' barrel also, but uses a different alloy, I personally don't recommend the YB to kids older than 7-8 yrs old.
Have a U8 boy, good size though. How does this compare to the YB126BB Jr Big Barrel? I see different alloys, will one have more pop for that age?
I like the Omaha, nice balance, big sweet spot and great pop!
How does the pop on this bat compare to the Easton S3 and Worth Lithium Prodigy? Are any more end loaded vs. balanced? Thanks
All three are going to perform similar. They are all one piece alloy bats, and balanced. You can't go wrong with any of the bats.
My son is 13 years old and i am looking for a good bat for him. Is a -5 appropriate for his age group?
I would double check with the league directly, as there are some new weight restrictions on certain older age groups. Some are requiring a -3 bbcor bat.
According to the Babe Ruth website barrel can only be 2 5/8. This bat is 2 3/4 which would not be legal ?
Yes, if the league only allows a 2 5/8" barrel than this bat is not going to be legal
does this bat have the new usssa stamp for 2012?
Yes. It has the new USSSA stamp (see prodcut images).
Would i be able to use this bat in Highschool??
No. All high school bats are adult models and must be BBCOR certified.
is this a good bat for power hitters my son is 13 and looking for a new bat?
Really any bat that is a stiffer bat. Any one piece bat will work well. The omaha is a great option. It is duralble and has good pop.
trying to decide between the TPX Omaha and the Lithium Prodigy for my 10yr old. What is your recommendation?
Both are great bats. The Prodigy may have a little more pop, but the Omaha will probably be a little more durable. Kind of depends on what's more important to you, pop or durability.
