Default Z2000 CRACKED (only 75 hits)

Just Got The 2014 USSSA Z2000 28oz EL, model: SBZ214-UE. I've had it only a week with around 75 hits with 44/375 balls in warm weather and It cracked. Huge spiraling crack that wraps almost all the way around barrel about 8 inches long. I loved everything about bat until this happened. What I am wondering, will the warranty replacement bat likely do the same thing? If warranty replacement bat does the same thing will they LS replace it also?



Thanks,

I talked to Louisville Slugger today and they are no longer making the SBZ214-UE and have no more usssa 28oz end-load. so I have the option of getting the balanced 28oz or paying $90 to get the Z3000... The guy said the 2015 Z2000 will be out in July.

That sucks. I dont know about the good q.c z2k but the broken in z3k el I used was mediocre to me. Now it sounded serious but it just didn't deliver imho. You could probably unload the z3k & get another z2k though

So they are making a 2000 and a 3000? Not one of those profession things?

The guy I talked to at LS about returning the bat, said they are no longer making 2014 Z2000 and the 2015 Z2000 will be out around July. He said they are still making the Z3000.

3000 is weak.

Just get the balance and hope for the best

Got my 14 Z2000 last week. Hit 15 balls in BP this morning before our tournament. Broke it my 2nd at bat. Can I get more than 1 bat under my year warranty if it keeps breaking?
