The Xeno from Slugger is as good as it gets in the fastpitch space.

Our hitters liked the stiffer feel, the sound and general sense that every ball they hit was like a bat out of hades. The stiffness in the handle felt great for long drives.

Comparable Bats

In the fastpitch space there are plenty of decent options. A few good ones. For 2018 the LXT from Slugger as well as Easton’s Ghost X Double barrel. You might also take a closer look at the CFX in Fastpitch although those sound a bit different.

2018 Ghost ASA

2018 Louisville Slugger XENO Review

2018 Xeno Construction

The Xeno is a two piece composite bat built with a stiff transition and a good sized barrel. Expect to feel great hits out of the box.

The new addition this year is the end cap. It helps lower the swing weight a bit on each model.

Bat Sizing Options

The Xeno comes in a number of lengths and drops. College players can pick up a drop 8 while a new or smaller player can look for the drop 11. All are going to work quite well across the board and each get really great ratings.
