Louisville Slugger Z-1000 SB11Z The new 2011 Z-1000 Slowpitch bat features the Inner Socket Technology (iST) that is designed to maintain handle stiffness while joining the barrel and handle together, providing players with a great solid feel and larger sweet spot. Vibration from a miss hit is absorbed before it reaches a player’s hands. Without the worry of sting or vibration from “off sweetspot hits” a player can maintain acceleration through impact for increased and more consistent performance. The ASA approved SB11Z also features the new Swing 1 inner Disc Technology (S1iD) that allows the barrel to flex to its maximum allowable performance level from SWING 1. This bat is “Game Ready” from the time you take off the wrapper. The 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 us to bring up the performance around the sweet spot – which means you get a larger performing sweet spot, not just a better feeling one.

Review:This Louisville Slugger Z-1000/SB11Z was well received by our anxious group of reviewers.
"I love the stiffness in the handle and the overall feel and balance of this bat," said Kevin Conger. “I actually mishit this bat several times without wearing a batting glove and I was amazed to feel no sting or vibrations."
"I don't know if Louisville put Gatorade or Red Bull inside this bat, but it has the best pop of any bat I have hit all year,” said Bobby Garcia.
“The sound was a little different then I am used to, but who cares as the bats performance was off the charts."
