Louisville PXT Fastpitch Bat -8oz (2019)
MAD MAX says:
ALL NEW FOR 2019 is the Louisville Slugger PXT. This is going to be Louisville Slugger’s top-of-the-line fastpitch bat for 2019. While this bat comes in at a hefty $400 price point, it has some serious technology to back it up. As we saw in last year's PXT, this bat is unlike the majority of Louisville Slugger softball bats; this bat is discless. They managed to make this bat discless by using their new Powerstacks technology. They also have mass FX technology, which places a greater amount of mass directly behind the sweet spot, resulting in more power. With last year's PXT, they had a lot of complaints about the Tru3 technology not being stiff enough. With the new VCX technology replacing it, they made sure to stiffen it up so no power is lost. Also for this year's model, I must say this colorway is much cleaner looking than last year's model. With this year's PXT, I can confidently say it is deserving of being at the $400 price point. This minus-8 size is really for your true power hitter. The pitchers will want to flee when they see you swinging the all-new PXT.
Ready to build on its growing legacy, the 2019 PXT X19 Fastpitch bat from Louisville Slugger is changing the game -- again.
Mass FX Loaded Sweet Spot Technology places a greater amount of mass directly behind the sweet spot -- creating more momentum and effortless power each time you step to the plate. The PWR STAX barrel design evenly distributes the load on impact, pairing perfectly with the new Mass FX technology for added pop in this new model. The multi-layered construction is designed to amplify player-created energy into powerful performance.
VCX technology allows for independent movement between the barrel and handle in the 2019 PXT X19, controlling vibration and providing unparalleled feel on contact. This bat features an ultra-lightweight X-Cap and all new Slugger Pro Comfort grip to give you more control than ever -- without sacrificing any of the power you've come to love in a PXT bat.
