Louisville Slugger saying for 2018 will be if it's not broken don't fix it. The LXT Is a three piece bat. The Xeno which is a two piece bat will be Louisville's other high end composite bat. These two bats will be different in the regard that the LXT will have more flex to it. This means the barrel will actually whip back and then whip forward. Girls have also noted the LXT swings lighter because of the design. Louisville has improved the LXT in the regard of the connection piece, making sure durability will be a non issue this year. This model is the -9 more for a power hitter. A girl who's swing is just to quick and the only thing to slow her down is to go heavier. The bat will only come in three sizes 32/23 33/24 and 34/25. Some minor changes this year, Louisville has featured a new end cap called the X-Cap this will give more of a sweat spot and a lighter swing weight. Above in the Video one will see the inside of the an older LXT notice the two metal disc surrounding the foam. In the 2017 and 2018 there will only be one metal disc. This allows for a player to really get some good feedback when they hit the ball.
