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.

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 ½ 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?"

Came today! Wife just text me. "Did you order a new bat? I told UPS man that it couldn't possibly be ours and sent it back"
