Comparing Softball Bats: 2014 Z3000 & NEW 2016 Z4000

What are the differences between the Z3000 & Z4000 Slowpitch Softball Bats from Louisville Slugger?

We have been getting that question a lot lately, so I’m going to break it down for you. The 2016 Z4000 is basically the newer, updated model of the 2014 Z3000. Let’s start with the similarities…

2016 Z4000 Softball Bat - ASA End Loaded Edition

2016 Z4000 Softball Bat – ASA End Loaded Edition

They are both 3-piece bats, constructed with a 100% Composite design. The 3-pieces are put together using Louisville Slugger’s TRU3 piece, which connects the barrel to the top and the handle to the bottom without them touching. So, without the barrel touching the handle, the contact energy is not going to be able to reach the handle and cause that unwanted vibration/sting that you would normally feel in your hands with 1 or 2-piece bats. Also, the TRU3 piece is going to take that contact energy and redirect it back to the barrel. This redirection of energy will cause a trampoline effect at the point of impact on the sweet spot that will increase the distances of your hits and allow the softball to travel at a faster speed. These bats also have 12″ Barrel Lengths, 2 1/4″ Barrel Diameters & come with a One Year Warranty.

Now, let’s go over the differences . . .

2014 Z3000 Slowpitch Softball Bat - ASA End Loaded Edition

2014 Z3000 Slowpitch Softball Bat – ASA End Loaded Edition

Editions – The Z3000 is available in ASA/Balanced, ASA/End Loaded, USSSA/Balanced & USSSA/End Loaded editions. The Z4000 comes in Dual Stamp/Balanced, Dual Stamp/End Loaded, USSSA/Balanced & USSSA/End Loaded editions. So, as you can see, the Z3000 does NOT have a Dual Stamp model, coming with ASA or USSSA only editions in both balanced & end loaded models to choose from. The Z4000 DOES have the Dual Stamp edition (which takes the place of the ASA only edition), while still having the USSSA only edition as well. Both the Dual Stamp and USSSA Z4000 bats have balanced and end loaded models to choose from. This is a benefit with the Z4000’s because it gives you more flexibility with the Dual Stamp bats, but if you want a USSSA only bat that DOES NOT HAVE the S1iD discs inside the barrel then you can still get those as well.

7/8″ Handle – Both the Z3000 & Z4000 slowpitch bats have 7/8″ handles, but the Z4000 handles come tapered. Tapered handles are usually seen in BBCOR baseball bats, but Louisville Slugger features them on these Z4000 softball bats. It’s a preference thing, but most people like the tapered feel on the bottom hand as it seems to give you more bat control.

Barrel Finish – The Z3000 bats have just a regular smooth finish along the barrel (as most composite bats do), but Louisville Slugger features the Grit Blast Finish on the barrels of the Z4000 series. The Grit Blast has a rough sandpaper-like feel that is supposed to create more backspin on the softball at the point of impact. This backspin increases the distances of your hits, which could be the difference between a deep fly-out & a clutch home run.

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.

Louisville Slugger’s 2015 BBCOR Baseball Bat Lineup

2015 starts another year of baseball, which means another ridiculous lineup of bats from Louisville Slugger. The 3 top flight BBCOR bats for this year are the Omaha 515, Select 715 and the baddest one of them all, the prime 915!

Each of these were made to do one thing: DOMINATE THE COMPETITION. Let’s go through each bat in detail so you know exactly what you’re getting before you take the one for you to the field. Here is the Louisville Slugger’s 2015 BBCOR Baseball Bat Lineup.

Louisville Slugger’s 2015  BBCOR Baseball Bat – Omaha 515

louisville-slugger-omaha-bbcor-bat-BBO5153The BBCOR edition of the Omaha is a 1-piece bat constructed with ST+20 Alloy, which is arguably the best aluminum alloy in the game. Louisville Slugger crafted this 515 with the Flex Band Barrel Technology, a process where a 1″-wide graphite band is inserted inside the bat, increasing the strength and power of the sweet spot without sacrificing the light swing weight! Capped off with a 2 ⅝” barrel diameter and a 31/32” tapered handle, the Omaha 515 gives you the best bang for your buck! Great Performance + Great Price = One Heck of a Deal

2015 Select 715 BBCOR Baseball Bat

2015 louisville-slugger-select-715-bbcor-batLouisville Slugger makes the BBCOR Select a 3-piece, which takes this bat to an entirely different level of performance. The TRU3 Technology is how all 3 of the pieces come together, as it connects the barrel to one side and the handle to the other, while not allowing them to touch. That gives you the benefit of having no vibration getting to the hands and the energy that wants to come down to the handle essentially gets redirected right back into the barrel.

The redirected energy will then create a trampoline effect, ultimately increasing the distance of your hit! Also incorporated is the Flex Band Barrel Technology, where the 715 has a 1″-wide graphite band inserted inside the barrel, which increases the strength and power of the sweet spot without sacrificing the light swing weight! Lastly, Louisville adds a 2 ⅝” barrel diameter and a 31/32” tapered handle to the Select 715, making this one of the best BBCOR bats on the market!

2015 Prime 915 BBCOR Baseball Bat

2015 louisville-slugger-prime-915-bbcor-batAs Louisville Slugger’s only 100% composite BBCOR bat, the Prime is the top dog of the 2015 lineup! Composite is the strongest, most durable material in the game without question, giving you a great advantage while stepping up to the plate. Just like the Select, the Prime is made as a 3-piece, connected using the TRU3 Technology.

This technology connects the barrel to one side and the handle to the other, while not allowing them to touch. This benefits you by eliminating vibration to the hands, while redirecting contact energy right back into the barrel for a trampoline effect that will increase the distance and power of your hits! Another great feature is the Flex Band Barrel Technology, where the 915 has a 1″-wide graphite band inserted inside the bat, which increases the strength and power of the sweet spot without sacrificing the light swing weight! The Prime 915 for BBCOR also comes with a 2 ⅝” barrel diameter and a 31/32” tapered handle, making this Louisville bred Prime the #1 BBCOR bat available!

2015 Louisville Slugger Z2000 Slowpitch Softball Bats

The  2015 Louisville Slugger’s Z2000 bats are here and ready for action!

The Z2000 slowpitch softball bats are made with a 100% composite design. This composite technology is especially important in the barrel, where Louisville Slugger layers the bats with thinner, higher strength walls that gives the Z2000 a lighter swing weight and durability that is unmatched. The Z2000 is a 2-piece constructed bat, benefiting hitters with limited vibration to the hands upon contact with the softball. The 2-pieces are held together using the iST Barrel-To-Handle Technology, which is an extremely precise process that locks the barrel and the handle together. The iST connection is a b
xeneficial method in the fact that it gives hitters a solid feel without being too whippy, while also providing a larger sweet spot in the barrel. All of this years Z2000’s also feature a 12” barrel length, 2 ¼” barrel diameter,  ⅞” tapered handle, synthetic grip, standard knob and an LS end cap that traps energy and redirects it back to the barrel for more trampoline. At 34” in length, the Z2000’s are always available in 26, 27, 28 and 30 ounces in weight.

There are 4 different bats in the 2015 Z2000 Bat lineup

1) 2015 Louisville Slugger Z2000 USSSA Balanced Slowpitch Softball Bat Louisville Slugger makes this Z2000 USSSA bat with a balanced weighting, which is usually preferred to be used by contact hitters, as it’s not as heavy feeling as an end loaded bat. This balanced swing weight plays with an easy, controlled feel and a faster bat speed going through the hitting zone. Get ahead of the ball and get on base better than ever with this Z in your hands! The Balanced USSSA Z2000 is approved for slowpitch softball play by 1.20 BPF USSSA, NSA and ISA (not approved by ASA or ISF).

2) 2015 Louisville Slugger Z2000 USSSA End Loaded Slowpitch Softball Bat Crafted with an end load weighting, this Z2000 bat for USSSA slowpitch is made for power hitters. End loaded weighting means Louisville Slugger tipped the scales and left more weight towards the end of the barrel, versus a balanced edition where they would evenly distribute the weight throughout the entire bat. This extra weight at the end of the barrel means more mass where it counts, allowing hitters to power the ball over the fence with more regularity. “Touch ‘em all” may just be your new nickname with this Z on your side. The Z2000 End Load for USSSA is approved for slowpitch softball by 1.20 BPF USSSA, NSA and ISA (not approved by ASA or ISF).

3) 2015 Louisville Slugger Z2000 ASA Balanced Slowpitch Softball Bat The ASA Z2000 Balanced slowpitch bat is tailored to a contact hitters needs with its evenly distributed weighting throughout the bat. This balanced weight design gives hitters increased swing speed through the zone while still having complete control. The Z2000 ASA bats include the S1iD Technology, a process where Louisville Slugger inserts high-tech discs into the barrel, which gives the bat increased barrel flex and a very forgiving sweet spot. This Z2000 Balanced ASA edition is approved for slowpitch softball play by ASA and ISF only.

4) 2015 Louisville Slugger Z2000 ASA End Loaded Slowpitch Softball Bat The ASA versions big dog, the Z2000 End Loaded bat for ASA slowpitch is a tool that power hitters will surely be utilizing this season. End load means more weight is kept towards the end of the barrel, which makes the bat heavier to swing but brings much more energy through the hitting zone upon contact with the softball. Mass + Energy = Power. It’s science. Another tool Louisville Slugger uses for the Z2000 ASA bats is the process of inserting discs into the barrel, called the  S1iD Technology, which makes the sweet spot more forgiving and increases barrel flex. This End Load Z2000 ASA is approved for slowpitch softball play by ASA and ISF only.

2015 Louisville Slugger Xeno VS LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat

When looking for your 2015 Louisville Slugger Fastpitch Bat  you see two great models, the LXT and the Xeno. Both are popular and in a similar price range. So… how exactly do they differ? How are they similar? Let’s dive right in!2015-LXT-VS-XENO

First, let’s talk about what they have in common. Since they are both made by Louisville Slugger for fastpitch softball they naturally will share some features. First of all, the LXT and the Xeno are both made with a balanced swing weight. This even distribution of the weight throughout the bat allows for a controlled swing with increased bat speed. Louisville Slugger constructs these bats with a 100% composite design, allowing the bats to be layered with graphite fibers for increased strength and durability. This composite design especially comes in handy in the barrel, giving you high-performance where it’s needed most.

Both bats are also created with the S1iD technology on their side, which is the process of inserting high-tech discs inside the barrel walls to give these Sluggers more barrel flex and a more forgiving sweet spot. Lastly, they both come with a ⅞” handle, the LS end cap, a standard knob and meet the 1.20 BPF standards. All Louisville Slugger fastpitch softball bats are approved for play by USSSA, ASA, NSA, ISA and ISF play.

Second…what are the differences between the LXT and the Xeno?
2015 Louisville Slugger LXTThe glaring difference is the way they are connected.

The 2015 LXT Fastpitch Softball Bat is a 3-piece bat connected using the Tru3 technology. This Tru3 is the piece that connects the barrel to one side and the handle to the other, not allowing them to touch. This is going to eliminate any vibration and sting to the hands because the Tru3 piece is going to absorb all of it. Also the LXT is available in a drop -8, -9 and -10 length to weight ratio. The LXT does not offer a drop -11.

2015 Louisville Slugger XenoThe 2015 Xeno Fastpitch Softball Bat is a 2-piece bat that connects the barrel and the handle together using the iST technology. This connection is incredibly sturdy giving the bat a solid feel while limiting, but not eliminating, vibration to the hands. So, you will get a little bit of feedback in your hands, but not like you would with a 1-piece traditional bat. Also the Xeno is available in a drop -8, -9, -10 and -11 length to weight ratio.

The verdict? Well…that’s your call to make. They both are made with incredible technology and materials as we went over in detail. It just comes down to your preferences on the connection. If you want vibration to your hands eliminated and don’t mind spending a few bucks more – get the 3-piece LXT. If you like a little feedback in your hands and/or want to save a few bucks – get the 2-piece Xeno. Also if you want a drop -11 bat then you would go with the Xeno, because the LXT does not offer that particular length to weight ratio.

Free shipping on orders over $50 from Cheapbats.comYou won’t be disappointed either way… but just to ease your mind they both come with a 12 month manufacturer’s warranty. Available with no hassle returns at CheapBats.com“Batisfaction”, guaranteed and free shipping for orders over $50.

2014 Louisville Slugger BBCOR Bats

Louisville Slugger BBCOR Baseball BatsThe name Louisville Slugger is synonymous with baseball. They have been constructing high-quality, high-performance baseball bats for over 129 years. That’s why it comes as no surprise that the 2014 Louisville Slugger BBCOR bats are the preferred choice for many of the top ranking collegiate programs and players in the nation.

In this baseball bat review, we here at Cheapbats.com will introduce you to the 2014 TPX BBCOR bats that are sure to produce the results you know and have come to expect from a trusted and dependable company such as Louisville Slugger. Sticking to a standard of quality over quantity, there are only four Louisville Slugger BBCOR bats in their 2014 lineup: The Louisville Attack, Raid, Assault and Warrior. Here’s the low-down on these high-performing bats.

2014 Louisville Slugger Attack BBCOR Baseball Bat

Louisville Slugger BBCOR Baseball Bats - 2014 AttackPerhaps the strongest, most durable Louisville Slugger BBCOR bat made to date. Their patented TRU3 Technology allows for unparalleled strength in the linkage of the barrel and handle of the 2014 Attack, and creates a substantial reduction in vibration on contact. The Louisville Attack is a fully composite baseball bat with Pure 360 Composite material that makes for one of their lightest and strongest barrels ever. To adhere to the BBCOR standards without making the walls of the barrel thicker like most of the competitors, Louisville Slugger added a 1 inch-wide graphite component called the Flex Band. Instead of a deadening feel like some of the BBCOR bats have on impact, the Flex Band allows the sweet spot to feel like the barrels of old.

2014 Louisville Slugger Raid BBCOR Baseball Bat

Louisville Slugger BBCOR Baseball Bats - 2014 RaidSimilar to the Attack, the Louisville Slugger Raid is a three-piece bat making use of the innovative technology that puts them ahead of the game. This BBCOR bat has the patented TRU3 Technology to absorb vibration early on and allow the player not to lose bat speed through the zone. A Flex Band insert keeps the Raid’s AC-21 alloy barrel light and powerful. This alloy is tough, durable, and made to last.

2014 Louisville Slugger Assault BBCOR Baseball Bat

Louisville Slugger BBCOR Baseball Bats - 2014 AssaultLouisville Slugger has retired the Omaha BBCOR bat and handed the reigns over to the Louisville Assault. The 2014 BBCOR Assault is a one-piece, aluminum bat made up of their tough ST+20 alloy. Just like the Attack and Raid baseball bats, the Louisville Assault comes equipped with the graphite Flex Band in the barrel for a perfect combination of power and lightweight swing speed.

2014 Louisville Slugger Warrior BBCOR Baseball Bat

Louisville Slugger BBCOR Baseball Bat - 2014 Warrior This is a go-to bat for the Louisville Slugger purists. The BBCOR Warrior has consistently been one of the more popular bats for the players that are looking for power, durability and affordability. The Warrior is constructed of Louisville’s performance 7050 alloy. A no frills baseball bat for a no frills player.

What’s the verdict? You can’t go wrong with any of the Louisville Slugger BBCOR bats for 2014. The Attack is worth the price and one of the best BBCOR bats on the market. The Raid will produce similar results at a slightly lesser cost. Louisville Slugger is so confident in their TRU3 Technology used in these two bats that they are offering a 30-Day Performance Guarantee! You like the Attack or Raid, you keep it. You don’t, send it back within 30 days for a full refund. If you’re not ready to make that leap to the elite bats or are just transitioning to using BBCOR baseball bats, the Louisville Assault and Warrior will not disappoint.
