Questions and Answers for 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A9

Daughter is small but a power hitter with fast hands. She is pulling pitches foul down LF line while currently using her LXT -10. Would -9 slow her down a bit?

The -9 sizing of the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A9 is going to feel heavier than the -10 which can potentially slow down a player's hands. You want to be careful here because having quick hands is a really good quality so you may want to look into more of a swing adjustment in order to utilize the whole field, as opposed to just adding weight to her bat.

There is a slight movement between the barrel and handle. Is this normal in the PXT bat?

Some Louisville bats are designed to have a slight amount of movement around the connection point once they get fully broken in, and the PXT model seems to be one of those models as well. As long as you aren't seeing any major performance drop, then it is not indicative of any defect.

My daughter is a power hitter with a quick swing. She has the LXT -10 and hits homeruns like crazy. Would the new PXT minus 10 still have an end weight to it? I know the LXT does not. I want to keep her bat speed.

Yes, the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 will feature an end loaded swing weight.

My daughter (5'3", 115 lbs), is currently swinging a 2017 LXT 32/22. She was a Xeno girl before the LXT. I would consider her a line drive hitter, rather than a power hitter, but she has fast hands and great bat speed. We were looking to move her into a -9, 32/23. She is interested in the new PXT, but I've read that it is built for 'power hitters'. Would she be best suited to stay with the LXT or is the PXT a good option even for someone not considered a power hitter?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A9 could be used by power and contact hitters alike. Based on your assessment of your daughter's hitting capabilities the -9 model may not be the best option to consider. Would recommend getting the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A10 instead.

My daughter has always used a DeMarini but her new team is Louisville sponsored and she is supposed to start swinging one. She uses the CFX -9 (CFF-18) model DeMarini. Do you recommend the PXT, LXT, or Xeno? Swings a 32 inch drop -9.

The 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A9 may not feature the same balanced swing weight feel compared to her previous/current DeMarini CFX model. If seeking something that will feature more of the same swing weight feel from LS we would recommend getting the 2018 Louisville Slugger LXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPLX18A9.

Is the -9 end loaded or balanced?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -9 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPX18A9 will feature a balanced swing weight design.

What is the break in period for this bat? Or is it hot out of the box like the LXT and Xeno?

We would recommend around 100-150 swings off the tee or soft toss to fully break-in the composite fibers. Make sure you rotate the barrel about a quarter of an inch every 15-20 swings to fully break-in the fibers throughout the barrel.
