Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13C review by Batman
Pros: Best bat in the world! Never cracked like most people I hear. Very Balanced. Pop outstanding. Never had a Composite bat this good for so light. Cons:The bat only breaks if you use it in a batting cage with hard rubber balls. Also, It's hard to keep up with slow pitchers because it's so light. My bat did not break though. No Cons over all.

Pros: Great pop, cool graphics. Great bat for power hitters. Comparable to the XL3. Cons:Takes a while to break in, but after that you will be hitting them to the fence!

Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13C review by Mr. Excitement
Pros: My son has had a love / hate relationship with this bat ever since the day we brought it home last year. He is a taller, skinnier kid, which always made apprehensive about letting him swing a drop 10 bat. After taking many swings with different bats, he decided that this bat felt the most comfortable. As a disclaimer, my son plays at a very high level and his team qualified and played in the USSSA Elite 32 World Series in Disney this past fall as 9 year olds. I myself have been coaching baseball for 22 years - Ages ranging From College to t-ball. The bat is light for sure and was easy for him to bring through the zone. The bat held up for 80+ games last season and countless BP sessions. It is extremely balanced. Cons:1) Break in takes forever. I hit 500 half swing soft tosses into a net before I handed it to my son. Took 3 more weeks for the bat to being to perform. 2) Small Sweet spot. Anything not hit between the "LYS" in Catalyst creates a "clunk" instead of a "ping. 3) Vibrations on mis-hits are pretty severe. Creates some apprehension. 3) You give up a lot of bat mass on the drop 12 to pick up marginal bat speed. The ball just doesn't fly like it does off a Drop 10 bat. Do yourself a favor and forget about this bat. Spend the extra money and buy an Attack (If you're a Louisville fan) or a DeMarini CF6. We bought both for this coming year and are much more pleased with the results off of both of them. I'm positive you won't be disappointed either.

Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13C review by IsaBradley
Pros: Super lightweight for the player who may not be real strong yet. My son is a tall beanpole so bat control is an issue. This bat swings quite a bit lighter than his Easton S3 and slightly lighter than his Demarini CF5. On a postal scale it actually comes in about a half ounce lighter than labeled. Nice pop to it too. He is about to turn 9 but is tall and I got him the 29". He had a 28" last year and between the two of them he has hundreds of swings in them with no breaks. I've heard about durability issues but his two have been fine so it gets 5 stars from me there. Cons:It's tough for me to find a con with this bat because my son loves it. He wanted a Demarini CF5 so bad and got one. But after swinging both of them he's gravitating back toward the Catalyst. If I had to give a con I guess it would be vibration. It's not that it has a small sweet spot but my son definitely gets more bees in the hands with this bat versus the CF5. Not a deal breaker, just not necessarily a strong point for this bat.

Pros: Looks good and feels good in the hands. Cons:Purchased the 31" 19oz for my 12 year old son. No pop in the bat at all. From the very beginning the bat sounded dead. The third game of the season the bat broke in half. Purchased the bat mid December as a Christmas gift. Tried to get my money back and Louisville Slugger would only allow a trade in. Will be getting the 2014 model, guess we will see how good it is.

Pros: Great feel and balance, gives player confidence. Cons:Had same bat in 16oz/ 28in size which performed extremely well. After about tem practices and 4 games bat split just above handle. Also thought pop was not the same. Wonder if these composite bats are pushing limits of material as bat lengthens.

Pros: Cons:This bat was only used for 2.5 months, and sat in my garage for the other 7 1/1 months. It broke on my son at the taper of the barrel during a game. We are now just two months out of warranty, and not covered by the warranty. Out of luck for us! We have bought a lot of bats, and this is a first! Our Model # was SL12C....

Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13C review by Brian
Pros: It swings well. I haven't seen a good MOI number on it as of yet, but it seems to get through the zone well for such a big barrell and my 8 year old, who is a solid comp player for that age, gets the ball through the zone well. Although the sweet spot is small, when you can put a ball on it the results are a great pop. Cons:The bat literally broke in half this afternoon. I bought it almost 11 months ago to the day and it has received heavy use from an 8 year old. But no where near the amount of use to actually break in half on a pitch. Very surprised it broke. The Vibration on the bat is severe if you don't hit the sweet spot.

Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13C review by Chris
Pros: Light, quick swinging bat which works well if the player doesn't have much upper body strength. My son doesn't hit for the fences but was able to get the bat around and make contact with fast pitches. Just Bats had the best price around and I was not able to find the same model bat cheaper anywhere else. Cons:I son had this bat for four months and made it through a season of Pony League in the Mustang Division. On his last game of the season took an inside pitch and the bat cracked a few inches above the tape. I heard the "clunk" from the stands, but at least he beat out the throw to first. The bat was never used in the cages, nor passed around for the team to use. We broke it in as directed, and he probably was able to get in 60 at bats with it. Going to be turning it into Louisville Slugger under the warranty, but probably won't buy another composite bat. At least I was able to get it on sale due to end of year model.

Pros: price can sometimes be reasonable. some pop. Cons:Louisville has lost the race. My team is 10U and we've broken 5 of their bats this season. 2 were broken at 9U. It's composite technology has failed miserably. In order for the ball to travel it has to be struck perfectly. I do not recommend Louisville's composite technology for their youth big barrel bats. J

Louisville Slugger TPX Catalyst Senior League Baseball Bat: SL13C review by xlc7
Pros: My son is 4'7, 90lb, and used the 29 inch 17 oz. Catalyst. The bat is balanced and light. He was able to swing the bat with good control and did not cast his hands as he would with most end loaded, big barrel bats. Increased bat speed led to solid hits with great pop off the bat. Cons:The bat broke in half after 6 weeks of normal use the morning of our first tournament. This is the second Louisville Slugger bat to break in less than one year of use for us the 29/17 Triton and 29/17 Catalyst. Will attempt one more round with the replaced Catalyst. One star for durability.
