I have the Xeno 2012 and love it I have been hitting with it for 3 years now, and recently have gotten the 2014 Xeno because of the new USSSA standards. I am 14 and play 14u travel ball. The Xeno 2012 comes hot out of the wrapper is very durable, and has a great pop. I have started to use my 2014 Xeno more and I LOVE IT! It has a great pop and I can barely swing and it goes long and when I swing my best it goes.
