Louisville Slugger Xeno 2021

Louisville Slugger Xeno is one of the most popular fastpitch bats on the market and rightfully so. The last year’s Xeno was a quality, high-performance bat that has a stiffer feel that power hitters prefer and some fantastic technologies in it.

Finally, this year Louisville Slugger Xeno is out and we get to see if it has improved and if it is, by how much.

Let’s check it out.

Construction and features

The 2021 Xeno has a composite barrel, as you would expect. That barrel has a Performance Composite Design with a dual disk, a technology Slugger calls – S1IDTM Barrel Technology which is made so it can give you the best performance possible out of the wrapper.

As we said, the Xeno is a bat with a stiff feel and that is made possible by the 2-piece design that the Xeno has, along with the ISTTM Technology that gives it that stiff connection and solid feel which has made Louisville Slugger Xeno so popular.

This bat has a balanced swing weight, but because of the stiff feel it has, it is preferred by power hitters, rather than contact hitters.

Now, we get to the 2 new features the Xeno has. The first one is the new End Cap, called the Ultra-lightweight X-Cap that gives this bat even more control and speed than last year’s model.

The second new feature is the grip that has more cushion than the older Xeno, which gives you more comfort.

The technologies that Xeno has are great but we would’ve liked to see some more new technologies.

The all-new Louisville Slugger Xeno comes in four drops: -8, -9, -10, and -11.

Performance

The best thing about this bat is that it requires minimal break-in time, not like some other bats of this level.

Another big thing when we speak about Xeno we need to mention is the pop. And this bat has lots of it, it is definitely in the top 5 bats with the most pop.

The power that the Xeno is amazing; when you connect the ball just flies. However, the feel on mishits is not the best, and they could’ve worked on that more.

Nonetheless, this is a fantastic fastpitch bat that will make your swings better.

Pros:

  • Great for power hitters
  • Amazing pop right out of the wrapper
  • Price
  • Design

Cons:

  • Feel on mishits
  • We wished for more new features

Rating and conclusion

The 2021 Louisville Slugger Xeno is a high-performance fastpitch bat that costs less than the other bats in that realm, so to say. And that, along with its other pros, like the break-in time and the pop it has make it a bat that you couldn’t go wrong with.

Oh, we almost forgot… There is one more thing about the Xeno we didn’t mention.
It looks amazing!
