- Review by: Mike P
- Date: Thursday 28 February, 2013
- Pros: This bat is just as hot as the $299 Easton bats. Stiff feeling feels good. They say it is end loaded but it is more of a slight end load like the old Easton SRV4 was. The sweet spot is huge and the whole barrel reacts well to any contact. Don't bother paying more for the black carbon handle, you don't need it. This bat is just as hot, the only difference is a tiny bit of, for lack of a better word, "vibration" than the black carbon bats. Don't worry about the 12 inch barrel being smaller than the 13.5" barrel on the balanced Easton slowpitch bats, the 12" barrel is plenty big. Remember, this is the same material in the barrel as the more expensive Easton softball bats in the Raw Power line.
- Cons: Not 100% sure if I am sold on the new gauze grip tape on the new Easton slow pitch bats. The gauze feels like hard plastic; I think it should be softer. If you don't like the grip, rip it off and put a new one on because the 6.0 is still a great deal.

- Pros: I opened my new 6.0 up in the parking lot for an ASA tournament this weekend. I did not put any swings on this bat before the tournament like I normally do when I get a new softball bat. First at bat and the first swing, I hit a line drive in the gap that went all the way to the wall. The first thing I noticed is how solid the bat feels and how much pop it has. Second AB I waited for the right pitch and drove the ball opposite field off the middle of the fence. I am very pleased with the Easton 6.0 bat. I have swung several Worths and 2013 Mikens, even the new Z2000 from Louisville slugger doesnt really compare to this bat.

- Pros: 1- Ron; kindly, this is not a "repainted" Easton Salvo. All of the bats this year are new designs with new features to adhere to the new ASA standards. The Salvo is outdated and is no longer in production. Hence why we have an entirely new line of bats.
2- This bat is stupid hot; great feel as a result of the stiff handle. You'll notice a little more vibration, but not if you hit it square which is actually a nice feature. It forces you to put a good swing on the ball if you value not having that tingle in your fingers.
3- Sounds great; looks great.
4- Plenty of pop; plenty of distance on both sides of the field.
5- Great style grip even though I just switched it out for a VRS.
6- Great bat all around. I'd recommend to mainly higher-skilled ball players looking for a gamer with a good bit of endload... Only because for less experienced hitters, the 12" barrel with added swing weight will require a more pure-swing and better connection to take full advantage of the smaller sweet spot.
- Cons: Paint cracking along the S and T after only 50 or so swings...
Not an issue for me because all of my bats eventually develop stress cracks from my over-swinging... But for some it may be un-aesthetically pleasing lol.

- Pros: This bat is a repainted SRV5 Easton Salvo for the new ASA standard. Easton made the L6 just as good as the $299 softball bats just so they could gain some market from their competitors! The Easton 6.0 is insane for the price. And for all the people out there who mess with their bats, the 6.0 does not even need it. The bat is hot out of the wrapper. I saw guys hitting softballs over the fence right out of the wrapper, then they "shaved" it and it did hit a little farther but it also broke within a week. Don't cheat with this bat, it doesn't need it.

- Date: Monday 15 April, 2013
- Pros: This bat is sick. I received mine today and hit bombs right out of the wrapper. ... It feels good and handles great. I know its only gonna get hotter and look forward to swinging this bad boy this yr. Great job with this bat Easton.
- Cons: So far, my only concern is the 6mo warranty.

- Date: Monday 01 April, 2013
- Pros: Another sick Easton softball bat for ASA. Buy this bat. Don't bother spending another $100 for the L4.0 when the 6.0 is just as good. I like the new bat tape style batting grip. No vibration.

- Pros: Hot little stick. My buddy had one and I went yard twice with it. Overall it felt really good, i would recommend it to anyone looking for an ASA bat
- Review by: DJchazzychaz
- Date: Monday 25 March, 2013
- Pros: Sickest bat ever. If you want to go yard and drop some bombs, then get the Easton 6.0 bat. I don't always play ASA cause I like see ball farther in USSSA, but when I do, I use this beast of a softball bat.
- Review by: Big Gerald
- Date: Friday 01 March, 2013
- Pros: So I picked up a new Easton 6.0 today and it is just sick. They call me Big Gerald cause I am 6' 8". I think this bat broke-in with about 20 swings. I have seen reviews of people saying this is like the old SRV5 Easton Salvo so I had to pick one up myself and try it. What a beast! It is definitely stiff, but you dont get vibration at all. The L6 does not feel like it has much of an end load at all. I will compare it to some other bats soon, but the 6.0 feels like a mid load rather than an end load. The ball was jumping off this bat just as hard as my UTRIP bats.

- Pros: I really like this bat!!!
This thing is sick!
Has tons of pop! It has a kind of already broken in feel.
- Review by: T Harville
- Date: Monday 10 June, 2013
- Pros: Took this one out of the wrapper and was hitting missles with it. Very HOT out of the wrapper. Team mates liked it so much they all want one now.
- Cons: Easton has got light in the paint dept. The newer ones scratch way to easy.
- Review by: Thomas
- Date: Thursday 14 March, 2013
- Pros: Hit this bat out of the wrapper in league last night and it is hot. Feels like a broken in Salvo, the thin handle and gauze grip allowed me to have more control and I was able to hit the ball anywhere I wanted. Hit a shot off the fence at 310ft and other shots were blazing off the bat. If you are looking for a great ASA bat this is the best way to go and for the price you really can not beat it.
- Cons: The only cause of concern I have with the new Eastons are the end caps, you can notice in the pictures the slight mis match from barrel to end cap and the hologram in the end cap gets air pockets to create bubbles not sure yet if this will void warranty or not..waiting for an Easton rep to get back to me on that

- Date: Tuesday 19 March, 2013
- Pros: This is definitely hot out of the wrapper.
I'm hitting really well with it and like it more than my old salvo.
- Review by: T-Boner
- Date: Tuesday 07 May, 2013
- Pros: Really like the feel of this bat. I have a 28 oz. that swings just like my 30 oz. Salvo from last summer. Have about 300 swings on it in the last two weeks and have hit the ball really well. I am a line drive hitter that aims for gaps, but power hitters I play with have already started switching to using this bat when I have it out.
- Cons: I am not a fan of the new grip that Easton is putting on their bats. Not much there for padding, and if you don't use batting gloves I feel like your hands would not enjoy swinging this bat. Have read about durability issues, but have experienced none so far with a pretty decent amount of swings on the bat in various temperatures.
- Review by: Jason
- Date: Wednesday 24 April, 2013
- Pros: This bat came hot out of the wrapper. The end load is weighted near perfectly for my swing. For those that do not like a tremendous endload, but like more than a balanced bat, this is for you. Swing feels good, pop off the bat just feels "right". I've noticed an additional 15-20 feet on normal hits over my previous bat (Synergy). Really like this bat.
- Cons: End cap had a piece bust out of it after only 3rd week (two league games and one tourney.) Heard about fragile end caps other places. However, bat still has plenty of pop and will continue to use until noticeable.
- Review by: ben
- Date: Friday 24 May, 2013
- Pros: very hot right out of the wrapper as people described,
little to no vibration and hitting further than I was with my miken freak
- Cons: after about 50-75 swings the paint started flying off the barrel. not just a few flakes im talking about 50 percent of the barrel was missing its paint.
fortunately Easton sent me a new one but I haven't used the new one yet and am hoping this doesn't happen again.
