Easton Limited Edition Release BBCOR, Fastpitch & Slowpitch Softball Bats

This includes the Z-Core Speed Whiteout BBCOR Baseball Bat, the Stealth Retro Fastpitch Softball Bat, and the Helmer Flex Slowpitch Softball Bats (one for USSSA and one for ASA). Only so many of these bats are going to be manufactured and distributed, so when they’re gone – they’re gone!

2017 Easton Z-Core Speed Whiteout BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz BB17ZSW

Introducing the Limited Edition 2017 Z-Core Speed Whiteout BBCOR Bat! “Z-Core” is the internal core technology that ultimately produces a bigger, longer, and more potent sweet spot for you to take advantage of! Easton constructs this Z-Core Speed Whiteout with a 1-Piece build that’s crafted using 100% HMX Hyperlite Matrix Aluminum Alloy material, giving this Z-Core a sweet ping contact sound while being extremely hot right out of the wrapper and game ready from day one. The 31/32″ Tapered Handle comes with Easton’s 1.2mm Hyperskin Bat Grip, giving you the comfortable hold you need to grip it and rip it. The Speed Barrel Design gives this Z-Core Speed Whiteout a Balanced Swing Weight, so you have faster swing speed and improved bat control while going through the hitting zone. This bat is available for purchase today and ships out to customers 5/13/2016.

2016 Stealth Retro (-10oz length to weight ratio, 2 1/4″ barrel diameter)

2016 Easton Stealth Retro Fastpitch Softball Bat Balanced -10oz FP16SSR3B

The Stealth Retro has a 2-Piece Bat Construction and is crafted with a 100% Composite Design. The patented 2-Piece ConneXion (CXN) Technology maximizes energy transfer and eliminates vibration from getting to your hands, ultimately eliminating that unwanted sting at the moment of impact. The barrel is made with Easton’s tried and true IMX Composite, which combines durability with ridiculous pop right out of the wrapper. The barrel also has a Balanced Swing Weight, giving you faster swing speed and improved bat control. This Stealth also has advanced Carbon Nanotube Technology, which is an advanced composite that makes the bat lighter. Making the bat lighter allows Easton to make the bat longer without the extra weight, giving the Stealth Retro a larger sweet spot for you to take advantage of! Lastly, the Focus Flex Technology increases the overall power of the bat, which results in further hitting distances with just the right amount of barrel flex. This bat is available for purchase today and ships out to customers 5/13/2016.

The 1.2mm Hyperskin Bat Grip has a nice tacky feel with the right amount of cushion so you can grip it and rip it. This Helmer Flex bat is also made with an End-Loaded Swing Weight, which gives the barrel additional weight towards the end cap, giving you more power potential at the plate. These bats are available for purchase today and ships out to customers 6/2/2016.

2016 Louisville Slugger Z4000 SlowPitch Softball Bat Line-Up

 

Slugger Z4000 USSSA BALANCED

Z4000 USSSA BALANCED

The 2016 Louisville Z4000 slow pitch bats come in six different flavors to cater to each individual’s tastes.  Starting with the balanced model Z4000 USSSA Balanced, which is a 100% composite bat made from the Pure 360 carbon fiber, that also incorporates the TRU3 – 3-piece Technology. Mixing these high end composites with the TRU3 will help direct any potentially lost energy of the swing back into the softball. This model has a balanced swing weight to make it more of a line drive/contact hitters softball bat. It has a tapered handle with a 12″ barrel length and a 2 1/4″ barrel diameter. This balanced model is approved for USSSA, NSA and ISA. The Z4000 Balanced USSSA is not allowed in ASA or ISF.

 

Slugger Z4000 BALANCED ASA

Z4000 ASA/USSSA BALANCED

The next softball bat in the group is the 2016 Z4000 ASA/USSSA Balanced . This bat is very similar to the previous slow-pitch bat save a few little differences. They both have the same composite & offer the TRU3 connecting piece that eliminates vibration and improves overall stiffness and feel. Where they differ, however, is that the ASA/USSSA Balanced is approved for all major softball associations. Louisville slugger was able to do this by using their Swing 1 inner Disc Technology, or ‘S1iD’. The S1iD is composed of two inner discs inserted into the sweet spot of the barrel to allow for maximum pop right out of the wrapper without having to wait for it to break in at all. This softball bat is approved for USSSA, ASA, NSA,ISA and ISF associations.

Slugger Z4000 USSSA END LOADED

Z4000 USSSA END LOADED

Now we have the Louisville Slugger Z4000 End Loaded USSSA . This is the exact same slow pitch bat as the first model mentioned but with an End Loaded weighting. This bat will be ideal for players who love to crush the ball over the fence & have the power+strength to use it. You get all the other great bells and whistles, just a little more inertia behind the ball. This Z4000 SBZ416U-E is approved for USSSA, NSA, and ISA. It is not approved for ASA or ISF.

 

 

Z4000 ASA END LOADED

Z4000 ASA/USSSA END LOADED

Next is the Louisville Slugger Z4000 ASA/USSSA End Loaded bat. This is exactly like the second softball bat talked about but it features an end load as well. Again great for the players who have enough strength to utilize the end loaded softball bat to help put some extra distance on the ball. This bat is approved for all major softball associations: USSSA, ASA, NSA, ISA and ISF.

 

 

 

Z4000 USSSA POWER LOADED (SHOPPE BACKMAN EDITION)

Z4000 USSSA POWER LOADED (SHOPPE BACKMAN EDITION)

Finally we get to the heaviest end loaded bat Louisville makes in the Z4000 line up. With an extra half ounce end load, this Shoppe Backman model made for Louisville Sluggers own pro-sponsored team is ready to put some heavy damage on the ball. The Z4000 SBZ416U-PL is the hottest & heaviest Z4000 softball bat Louisville Slugger makes. Made with the same great features and aero space carbon fiber as the other Z4000’s, this USSSA slow pitch bat is a beast! Also approved for NSA and ISA softball associations.

 

 

HYPER-Z SSUSA SENIOR END LOADED

HYPER-Z SSUSA SENIOR END LOADED

The last Louisville softball bat to talk about here is the SSUSA Senior Z4000. This bat is also made with the Pure 360 composite material and the TRU3 connection technology. It has an end load like some of the other Z4000’s, but this SSUSA model is not restricted in the way other associations are. The gates have been opened wide in terms of performance for the manufacturers, so you will be getting a slow-pitch bat that tries to walk as close to the edge of maximum power without sacrificing the durability of the product. This Softball Bat is approved for SSUSA play only.
