The balance, large sweet spot, and dual barrel technology really help bringing up your swing speed, even if your hands haven’t gotten any faster. Stiffer transition provides stiffer feel, and in theory it means more power when the ball is hit solid. On the other hand, it also means more hand sting on mishits. But unless you can hit at elite level speeds, the stiffer transition is not making a significant difference.
Overall, this bat is one of the best that money can buy. We recommend the 2017 Xeno Plus to those who want top shelf performance at all pitch speeds (right out of the wrapper), prefer an over-sized barrel and want a light swinging bat. Oh, and are not too concerned about the budget.
