The new Louisville Slugger RXT is constructed from two-piece composite materials as the last year’s model and features a SPRINGLOAD connection system as the older model, so in that department not a lot has changed. And that may not be necessarily a bad thing since the old model had fantastic pop and feel on contact. The technology helping in maximizing the pop is the HVR-1 Barrel technology, introduced last year.
Since this bat is intended for contact hitters, it is an extremely balanced bat and this year it comes in new drops: -8, -9, -10.
Sweet spot that this bat has is large and that is thanks to the COPA Endcap that works with the HVR-1 technology.
