    Default TPS Xeno FP11X -vs- FP12X



    Can anyone confirm for me that the only difference between the 2011 and 2012 version of the Xeno is the colors used? I've looked at the specs and they seem to be made the same. I can get a brand new 2011 for less than $200.

    Thanks.

    Www.thecoachreviews.com says "it is unchanged for 2012, except the color.". Wish my dd would stop saying "i dont want one.". I have seen balls scream off these. I can still remember a shot this summer in a hs school game, it was the fastest ball I have ever seen leave the park. A line drive that couldnt have been 20 feet off the ground and landed around 300 ft.

    DD did not want a new bat, just went ahead and bought her one before the fall season.

    1st she knew she had a new bat was when we arrived to practice an hour early to hit for a little while. She insisted we stay after practice to hit some more.

    With the prices right now you should be able to get most your money back if she really does not like it.

    That is a great website, thank you.

    I am thinking about getting a Xeno for my DD. She is currently using a Easton Synergy SRV4B but that was just deleted from the NCAA Approved Bat list with three strikes against it so she won't be able to use it in HS. I am pretty confident she could use it through summer ball but now USSSA has a new mark and that has to be displayed by 2013. It was a pretty hot bat but I am hearing the Xeno is going to be the bat to have this year. If they are the same bat I may pick up one of the 2011 models for probably half the price.

    I am happy dd is not a spoiled brat, but "I don't need another bat, my rt is fine" doesn't cut it with an obsessive dad. I said "Honey, you have to have more than one bat in the bag." "Well I have my miken." "Honey, that is too light, I have already ordered a xeno off ebay, don't tell mom until I sell your miken!"

    Actually got the winning bid on a 2011 for $150.

    Great, once she swings it she will love it.

    DW did not learn about the new bat until the 1st game, "Who's bat is she using?"

    Just an FYI. Just won a Xeno for $127.50 + $12 shipping. I thnk I might be more excited than my dd right now! Saving like that, right before Christmas. Wonderful!

    I will let you all know how it performs for her.
    Old bat: Easton Fastpitch: SK25 Fastpitch
    New bat: Louisville Slugger 2011 TPS 10 Xeno Composite Fastpitch Bat - YouTube

    Better tell her hitting instructor to step back stride!

    The 2011 bat rocks, my DD loves her 30/20. I'm thinking of buying her a bigger one for down the road before they disappear!

    Be careful, I think the rules are going to change in the next few years.

    Impossible to predicate how it will affect bats.
