Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000: SL12Z Senior League review by Coach
Pros: Improved bat speed due to balance. Has good pop for a new composite. My son hit a couple hundered balls prior to using in his last 3 games. He is hitting ropes. Not sure if its jump off the bat or better speed but big improvement over his CF4. Cons:Everyone on his team wants to use it and I told him no

Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000: SL12Z Senior League review by Bat Man
Pros: Drop to weight ratio. Would be nice to have a 29 19 if it performed. Cons:This bat felt like a dud the day we received it. It replaced a Triton II that broke in tournament. I use the bat to hit fly balls to son/team. At first I could hit ball to 250 yard fence with moderate effort. After 2.5 months of play, no matter how hard I swung, couldn't hit ball near the same fence. Sweet spot is quite small. Never had a good sound when contacts ball. I have since replaced with Easton S1 and Vexxum. I have many bats- as well as coach travel A team and private swing lessons. Suggest you avoid this bat from Slugger line of bats. We may have been unlikey in bat that we received, but wouldn't chance it since it never impressed me from day one. When having discussions with L Slugger, they, as well, admit bat was one of the poor performers.

Pros: My son has a very slow swing speed & is very tall (5'3) for his age (9). Great choice for him to increase bat speed without giving up length. Cons:Paint chips easily. In just 1 season had many chips in diffrent places.

Pros: A great bat with great balance and a ton of pop for players that are smaller or looking for control and bat speed. Just purchased the next size up. Cons:No complaints other than the -12 can lead to growing out of it fairly quickly.

Pros: Lightweight and well balanced. Great for younger and smaller kids 8U who need to work on bat speed. Cons:Bat broke in half around the 10th game of the season. However, Louisville Slugger offered a replacement with any bat from their stock, including their most expensive and newest bats.

Pros: The bat feels 5 ounces lighter than it really is. The barrel is heavy instead of having a rounded weight which makes bat speed much higher. I've had mine for 15 months and this bat has gotten the job done. Cons:Loses pop very quickly.

Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000: SL12Z Senior League review by Greg Hemming
Pros: Pop right out of wrapper. I have 12 year old hit 2 of the first 3 pitches right over 225' fence. It is so balanced that it makes it feel light as wood bat and lighter than drop 5 XL1. The end load on many drop 5's don't help the 12-13 year olds and this makes the transition possible while still having the composite feel. Cons:All BBCOR are drop 3 so those leagues that allow drop 5 this might be a negative but realistically they just swing same or 1 inch shorter bat and find MORE pop.

Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000: SL12Z Senior League review by Rick
Pros: My son needed to move to a big barrel bat but wanted a drop 12. I only found 2 on the market so we ordered the Z-1000 as it was supposed to have the largest sweet spot and most pop. He has only used it in BP so far but the ball really jumps off of this bat with a great sound even on mishits. He loves it so far and can't wait until the season starts! Cons:None so far.

Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000: SL12Z Senior League review by Garrett Jeter
Pros: Looks good and is definitely well balanced with the great length to weight ratio. Cons:Does not have the pop you would want for $300. My son is 7 going on 8 and weighs 76 pounds. His swing is strong and bat is dead compared to his other bats... Easton Surge -10 and the Easton Rival -10. Rival produces super line drives with the ping you want. Surge produces upward homerun flight for some reason. That being said, I want to see my son hit this bat once composite is broke down. Thats why I give it four stars. I believe it may come to life once it is broke in. If you want out of the wrapper pop, I would not recommend.

Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000: SL12Z Senior League review by Lafferty
Pros: I bought this bat in January of 2013. In May of 2013 it completely broke in half. It had hardly any pop out of the wrapper and just as it was getting broken-in when it broke completely in half. Keep in mind this was an 8 year old swinging it. My son has had his Easton Rival for well over a year and a half and it's still the best bat I've seen out there other than the Marucci Cat 5. Cons:No pop out of wrapper, breaks easily.

Pros: Good Pop right out of the wrapper. Very light and balanced for a big barrell bat. It is a great bat for smaller framed/lighter weight hitters. Cons:It broke in two pieces after only four months of use. I am the only person to hit with it. Not that much use to break so easily! Really dissapointed with the durability. My Dad spent Full price $299.99. Should have all the Pros above with better durability for that price.
