Easton Senior Baseball Bats
- Review by: DaddyDoc
- Thursday 30 January, 2014
- Pros: The exit speed of the baseball off of this bat is unreal. My son has tried several bats (Mako -11 small barrel, CF5 -8 and -10 (big), CF6 (big)) and no bat compares to this. It has a huge sweet spot, but is responsive, allowing him to feel where he is actually making contact. The bat seems particularly well balanced, but not too light that he can't feel the barrel through the zone. With a lighter bat, he seems to lose a little barrel lag through the hitting zone. As with any bat, there is some vibration when jammed or on end barrel hits, but seems to be less than the other bats mentioned. BP is no longer an ordinary, ho-hum drill. It has turned into a chuck-and-duck session for me (yes, I am using an L-screen). He's been taught to drive the ball back through the box and some of them, I hear more than I see. As a father, I'd love to see my son use this bat in competition. It is HOT! As a former college pitcher, this bat scares me. I've left it up to his coach to make the final decision, whether he should or should not use it when the season rolls around. He is leaning towards the safety of the pitchers (46' or 50') and 3rd basemen they will face and having him use a different bat. No, I am not joking. This is by far the most advanced bat I've seen. Well worth the money.
- Cons: Nit-picking, but he would've liked to see a full orange version in the big barrel (like his 2-1/4" barrel Mako).

- Pros: Great looking bat, huge barrel,very balanced
- Cons: Where's the pop? my son's CF5 has much better distance. He'll use the new Mako in BP and get frustrated then stuff it back in the bag and pull out the CF5. This is a 12 year old who will put 15-20 out of 50 out of the park in BP but there is noticably less pop on the Mako.

- We are looking for a big barrell bat for my son. He is 12 and plays little league. The bat he usually uses is a 31" What would be the best bat for him.
- Asked by Danyel on Sunday 06 April, 2014
- This bat is not legal for any of the Little League associations as it has a 2 3/4" diameter barrel. If you son plays Little League he would need the YB14MK. If you son is playing Junior Little League or Senior Little League he would need the BB14MK as they require a BBCOR certified bat if using composite in those two divisions.

- is this bat ok for kid pitch
- Asked by jimmy on Tuesday 01 April, 2014
- It will depend on your league requirements. This bat has a 2 3/4" diameter barrel. You must first see what your league bat rules are.

- My son is 4'1' 53lbs 7yo. Not real strong but has good bat speed. I bought him the MAKO JBB14MK for Christmas. He plays 8U machine pitch. This bat is still in the wrapper. Is this bat good for machine pitch or should I return it for the YB14MK 28"17 or the SL14MKB 27"17?
- Asked by Greg on Friday 13 December, 2013
- Junior Big Barrel bats are meant to be used with flex baseballs are high compression balls or they are prone to cracking. The SL14MKB is the youth (senior youth) version of the big barrel meant to be used with regular pitching and standard baseballs. The YB14MK is going to be a 2 1/4" diameter barrel compared to the bigger barrels of 2 3/4" It sounds like the JBB14MK may be your best bet with your child's size.
