We’ve now had several batting practice sessions with several hitters using the 2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper fastpitch bat.

Industry Reference Guide

We aren’t the only ones to have information about the LXT Hyper. Other places, in particular those who sell bats, usually have a boiler plate write up on the specs of a bat. Many of those we reference to make sure we are seeing what we should be. Here are some more references for the 2017 Louisivlle Slugger LXT Hyper review.

In that time, we’ve discussed with those at Slugger corporate, read a number of other online reviews from vendors on their first take and watched a dozen or so other players hit with the 2017 LXT Hyper. We used that insight to compile these recommendations and our 2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Review.

Recommendations

In that process, we have confirmed the bat’s prowess, performance and massive size offerings. We also submit the LXT Hyper may have the best progeny of any fastpitch bat on the market today. As such, we’d recommend the LXT Hyper to nearly any serious player looking for a top shelf performance fastpitch bat. If you play 35+ games a season then it’s likely there is a fitting size for you in the 2017 LXT Hyper from Slugger

The 2017 LXT Hyper from Louisville Slugger may very well be the most popular performance fastpitch bat for 2017. Some reasons for this:

  • The LXT line from Slugger is a well known and very well received stick at all levels of the sport.
  • The LXT Hyper covers nearly every swing size imaginable.
  • The balance swing weight is exactly what most players prefer.
  • The more flexible transition makes for very silky smashes and tolerable mishits.

Fastpitch LXT Hyper Recommendations
2017 Louisivlle Slugger LXT Hyper Review

Add these bat facts to Louisville Slugger’s top notch distribution, name recognition and customer loyalty and it’s really hard to go wrong with the 2017 LXT Hyper. There really isn’t a serious fastpitch player, who plays more than 35 games (or so) a season, where we would not recommend the bat.

If there were someone to hold back from the checkout isle, would consider those who find even the drop 8 LXT Hyper too light or those who play a lot in cold weather and need an aluminum barrel to reconsider. Of course those unwilling to afford a top shelf bat would be directed elsewhere too.

Otherwise, we can’t think of a single competitive softball player who should hesitate on the 2017 LXT Hyper.

2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Review

We sound like a broken record when pointing out the comparisons of two piece composite fastpitch bats in the performance space. But we’ll say it again: Every serious manufacturer in the fastpitch space produces a top shelf performance two piece composite with an extended barrel and light swing. And by ‘every’ we mean everyone but Anderson Bats. For example:

Each have their own little twist in terms of swing weight, barrel length and transition point. But, to say the least, the space is crowded.
