Louisville Slugger Vertex YB12V TPX Youth Bat - Youth

Louisville Slugger hit one out of the park with their Vertex TPX Bat. They've improved composite/alloy hybrid design by optimizing the properties of AC21 Scandium to maximize performance and durability. AC21 Scandium when combined with composite ensures thin walls, outstanding durability and unmatched performance. LS-2X: Their new thinner high-strength and lightweight graphite fibers allow reduced wall thickness, creating better performance while maintaining durability. Thinner fibers allow use of more layers for added strength. The Vertex design utilizes a full LS-2X composite handle and transition area. The move to a full 100% graphite composite design in the transition allows for an even stiffer handle than offered in Exogrid. Graphite is lighter and stronger than aluminum, allowing for a stiffer handle. A stiff handle produces more barrel flex, resulting in maximum trampoline effect and, ultimately, greater performance. **Bats returned to Eastbay must be unused and in the original wrapper.** YB12V specs: -13 weight ratio; 28, 29, 30, 31, 32 oz; 2 1/4" barrel; 7/8" tapered handle with synthetic grip; two-color, split barrel design; Pro Cup end cap.

Question

Are you sure this bat is approved for little league 7-12?

I thought the new rules banned 100% composite bats except a few that passed a performance test. I didnt see this one on the list.

I have attached the specifications for the Louisville Slugger Vertex YB12V TPX Youth Bat . At the end, it shows you the leagues it is eligible for. Little League is one of them.

New for 2012! For the past few years, the H2 was Louisville Slugger's flagship composite/alloy hybrid design. This season, Louisville Slugger ups the ante with a new bat, new materials and performance that will leave you astonished! Building off the success of EXOGRID, Vertex Technology is the next step in optimizing the composite/alloy hybrid design. The Vertex design utilizes Louisville Slugger's LS-2X Composite which uses thinner high-strength and lightweight graphite fibers to create the optimal feeling handle. These thinner fibers allow for more layers, giving the Vertex added stiffness and durability. The handle of the Vertex is actually stiffer than the EXOGRID which allows more barrel flex, resulting in maximum trampoline effect and, ultimately, greater performance! The barrel of the Vertex is constructed using AC21 Scandium Alloy. Combined with composite materials, the AC21 Scandium Alloy ensures thinner walls with outstanding durability and unmatched performance. The Vertex has a synthetic cushioned grip on the 7/8 inch standard handle to give players an unbeatable feeling of confidence when they step up to the plate. With an extended 2 1/4 inch barrel, players can easily translate that confidence into multi home run games! Louisville Slugger: Intimidate at the Plate! The Vertex is approved for play in Little League, Dixie, Pony, Babe Ruth, AABC, and USSSA. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
