2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by D.Carver
Pros: Lots of pop, looks great, it did not break after a week. We received this bat about a month ago as a One-X replacement. It was hot right out of the box. My 14U daughter was swinging a 2013 Xeno and loved it, but this is her new favorite bat. She has never hit the ball further than she does with this bat. I have hit fly balls with it and I noticed a 20+ feet difference hitting one handed. No vibration or sting and a great balanced feel. Cons:None.

Pros: My daughter is 65 pounds thought the 30" 20 oz. would be too much but she swings it well and she loves it. It added 15 feet to distance. Cons:none

2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by Little Angels Softball
Pros: Bat is very well-balanced. Swings light but delivers outstanding pop and great exit speeds. Large sweet spot means lots of big hits, with our girls consistently smoking the ball over all areas of the plate. This bat has a very smooth feel and a Cadillac ride ... absolutely no sting on mis-hits. This gives the girls confidence. Stiff enough handle for a power hitter but with a flexible enough barrel that younger, smaller girls can be extremely effective with it. Sounds pretty cool, too! Cons:None yet. While previous LS bats (notably the Xeno and OneX) have had durability problems, our LXT has not so I can't ding it for the issues of previous models.

2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by Paul
Pros: My 14u DD Loves this bat, it has a nice feel and she is comfortable swinging it without needing batting gloves. Hit her first over the fence HR with this bat and leads her team in doubles. Cons:She swings hard but the inside of the bat has broken after only two months. LS is replacing it so I hope it was just an anomaly, it was pretty chilly the morning it broke...

2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by Paige
Pros: Excellent pop right out of the Wrapper!!! Definitely a step up from my Xeno! I loved my Xeno, but wow the ball flies off of this LXT!!! Also I get zero sting with mishits with this new LXT bat. Absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the feel of the LXT. Cons:Boring color... But my bat is a tool, not a fashion statement... so as long as it keeps crushing the ball, I don't care that it's a boring color.

2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by Will Smothers
Pros: I have a daughter who is 12 and plays on a 14U tournament team. I have been watching tournaments for the past several months debating whether we should trade up her 2013 DeMarini CF5 or not. I had researched enough to know that I wanted to look at the Xeno, the LXT or the Mako. What I observed was that hitters using the Xeno and LXT had much better results than hitters using the Mako. This narrowed down the search for me. A number of our players SWEAR by the Xeno and will not even think of hitting with anything else. After debating it in my head, I decided the $50 difference in price between the Xeno and LXT was not that big a deal since the LXT also had a 30-day return policy. I pulled the trigger and bought the LXT and I am very glad that I did. My 12-year old is consistently hitting line drives to the deep outfield with this bat. Before with her DeMarini she was hitting them to the edge or the infield or to shallow outfield. She is 5'4" and weighs 109 Lbs. GREAT BAT! Cons:The color options.

2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by Dave HS/18u Coach/Parent
Pros: No vibration, confident contact report from sweet spot when hitting the ball. The 30 Day promise return is huge in the bat world with the prices Cons:NO POP! This bat did not live up to the hype or the claims. After 75 hits the end cap started to come off. This bat doesn’t have the pop expected and it will be going back. My daughter (5-04/165) is an 18u/HS starter and wanted to try a bat without end load and slightly shorter/lighter (33/23). Very disappointed in this bat. We will be sticking with the CF5 Insane (34/24) for now.

2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by College Player
Pros: Bought in August 2013...Had good pop out of the wrapper and did get a little better until it broke. Cons:It broke on our Florida trip in March. Bat was used sparingly during BP and never with cage balls. Returned to TPS and got a speedy return. Warranty Return bat was absolute garbage. So much so, that I gave it to my roommate. I will never buy TPS again.

Pros: Used this for two tourneys and the pop is insane! Daughter took tourney MVP! In the hands of a quality hitter takes the field away from the fielders. She got out twice all weekend on two line drives to center. She tried her friends Mako too and says there is no comparison Cons:I've heard about possible durability issues, but could be just people still talking because of the one-x

Pros: No vibration, confident contact report from sweet spot when hitting the ball. 30 Day promise. This is huge in the bat world with the prices. Cons:No pop! This bat did not have the pop expected or reported. The end cap is starting to come lose after only 75 hits. My daughter is an High School/18u player, 5-04, 165 lbs. She wanted to try a more balanced bat for the summer season. This bat is a dissapointment and doesn't live up to the hype or price. She will be staying with the CF5 Insane for the time being.

Pros: This bat does not have the same pop as the 2012 and 2013 Xeno. My daughter has the 2014 Xeno and the LXT, and doesn't use either one of them. She is using the 2013 Xeno. Cons:We have had to send the LXT back twice already. Be getting the third one in a few days.

2014 Louisville Slugger LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX14-RR review by b jefcoat
Pros: Looks good. No real way to rate durability, so I will give it 5 stars for the benefit of the doubt. Cons:Bought the LXT and the 2014 Xeno to replace a 2012 Xeno. My daughter went to batting practice with the LXT. I noticed no difference in the LXT and the '12 Xeno, she hit with both and I decided to hit a few fly balls to the outfield with both bats. Sad to say but the '12 Xeno seemed to have a little more pop behind it after 1,000's of balls than the LXT. Nervous about opening the '14 Xeno since there was no 30 day promise, we went ahead and did so. Great decision, it had the pop, looks, and feel we were expecting. Welcome home Xeno. Sorry LXT, your headed back to where you came from. Since both bats did not have any reviews I really attempted to be open minded in my personal evaluation of the 2 new bats and the '12 Xeno.
