Bought the LXT and the 2014 Xeno to replace a 2012 Xeno. My daughter went to batting practice with the LXT. I noticed no difference in the LXT and the '12 Xeno, she hit with both and I decided to hit a few fly balls to the outfield with both bats. Sad to say but the '12 Xeno seemed to have a little more pop behind it after 1,000's of balls than the LXT. Nervous about opening the '14 Xeno since there was no 30 day promise, we went ahead and did so. Great decision, it had the pop, looks, and feel we were expecting. Welcome home Xeno. Sorry LXT, your headed back to where you came from.
