Louisville Slugger 2012 TPX Z-1000 -3 Adult Baseball Bat (BBCOR)

The new Z-1000 features S1 iD barrel technology that allows the barrel to flex, providing maximum performance from the first swing. This bat is game ready from the time the wrapper comes off. Two inner discs are positioned inside the barrel at the sweet spot to stop the barrel from flexing past the performance limit, giving players maximum allowable performance. Precise positioning of iD within the barrel also allows for increased performance around the sweet spot, thereby increasing the sweet spot itself. New thinner and lightweight graphite fibers allow reduced wall thickness, creating better performance while maintaining durability. Thinner fibers also allow use of more layers in the barrel for added strength but with an overall wall that is thinner.

Really disappointed. This bat absolutely shattered just below the barrel on the silver composite portion. Composite materiel everywhere - looks like broken glass. Broke during batting practice in a cage with official weight balls (not machine or dimple balls) that were thrown during BP - just faster than soft toss - nothing crazy. Had less than 100 swings / hits. Broke within 7 days of purchase. Lousiville Slugger has been helpful - in process now of sending me new one but bought the Z-1000 BBCOR because the EXO BBCOR is big time top heavy. Hope that this was just a freak thing and I got a bad one from a messed up lot. The Z-1000 has very good balance however and while not forgiving (none of the BBCORs I have used are) it will still drive the ball if a good swing. Will let you know how next one holds up. Lots of money to pay for something that may have been rushed to market. Know that they will get better - just hope that process is fast. Wish they had been working on development for past 18 months when BBCOR rule change announced - not sure they were. Not sure any of the major Companies were. Sad.

    I've heard the discs cause problem but we had no issues with this bat. It was a game only bat though and it was rolled before being used.

      z1000 broke after 5 games of high schcol ball. It was returned and we were issued an ATTACK bat. The attack bat is awesome. Baseball Express was great to deal with, they upgraded us to the Attack. I will buy from them in the near future for sure, customer service was excellent.

          I tried several bats, the Z-1000 was off the chart in terms of balance and POP. I had the new Rip it II and it def did not come near the performance of the Z-1000.
