2014 Easton XL1 Youth Bat

The 2014 Easton youth XL1 Bat is a TWO-PIECE BAT with both a composite barrel and a composite handle. The Barrel is constructed with Easton's IMX Composite MONSTER BARREL design which gives the XL1 youth bat a massive sweet spot and maximum performance. The handle of this youth baseball bat is made with Easton's SIC Black Carbon handle, and all of this is held together with Easton's patented two-piece ConneXion technology which maximizes the energy transfer and gives this bat a really great feel. This is the bat power hitters at the Little League World Series are using. The XL1 is more end loaded, and 1 ounce heavier than the 2014 Mako, but if you have the strength to swing the XL1 bat, you should take advantage of the added mass of the bat.

Bottom Line / Why It's a Best Seller

The 2014 XL1 Youth Bat is a carry over from the 2013 model, but with updated graphics. The XL1 has a very large sweet spot and barrel. If you are strong enough to swing this bat, you probably do not need the more expensive Mako youth bat, as that is meant to be a lighter bat for kids who can't swing as fast as the stronger hitters. Most of the power hitters in the 2013 Little League World Series used the XL1.

  • Pros: Bought this bat for my 11 yr old son for his b-day. The bat has great pop. My son often swung his Easton S1 too fast and he would miss the sweet spot. The extend sweet spot was perfect for him. He's strong so going to a heavier bat was no problem what so ever. He gets great line drives and regularly hits them to the fence. A buddy of his got the Mako and my tried it also. He likes his XL1 better. He's gotten much better hits with his XL1.
  • Cons: I've notice kids that aren't as strong as my son have a difficult time swinging an XL1. The extra 2 ounces makes a difference for some. Overall great bat if a kid can swing a heavier bat.

  • Pros: My son has become a pretty good hitter, mostly strongly high grounders and some liners. With the XL1, the hits now go to the fence with a lot of motovation. It is amazing how much energy transfer happens with this bat. Some would call it pop, however that is a bit wimpy for what this bat does to a well hit ball.
  • Cons: Can sting really bad if not hit on the sweet spot. Suggest batting gloves and vibration ring.

  • My sone is 7yrs old, weighs 50lbs and approx 48" tall. He currently swings a 27/15 and a 28/15 well. Is this bat too much for him in a 28/18? Thanks!
  • Asked by Sawyer on Tuesday 03 December, 2013
  • It is tough for us to make that decision without seeing your child swing the bat in person. A heavier bat for a child not ready for one can lead to the child dragging the bat through the hitting zone, or causing him to have a weak top hand and either roll over or pop everything up. The Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat YB14X1 is designed for a kid who is a little stronger or more of a power hitter. We recommend him trying a minus 10 bat first before making a purchase for one.
