    Good for players with less self-generated bat speed

    This bat has a ton pop a can hit the ball very hard almost to he point that it is dangerous to pitchers, corner infielders, umpires, and base coaches. This -11 bat did not fit me quite right because it was to light. But it is a very good quality bat and would be great for people who like long bats but the xl1 (my favorite) is to heavy for them (-10) but the s1 (-12) is two light for them. If these people cannot afford the mako ($280) that is very expensive they would also be good with an xl2 it doesn't have quite the same pop as the xl1, being half-and-half. But it is much cheaper than the mako (less than $200). The only truly negative comment I have against the mako is that Easton could have done a much better job on the paint job, being a bat between the xl1 and the s1 I expected the paint job to be In that range too, not orange and grey.

    Great bat. My son is 12 and loves his 32inch bat but, has had it only 3 weeks and has cracked it and the end cap fell off . Need to make the mako stronger for real power hitters.

    Amazing bat and story you will not believe this.

    By Jakerr

    Comments about EASTON Mako Youth Baseball Bat (-11):

    This is all started on July 2nd. Jacob was turning 13 and for his birthday we were going to surprise him with a new bat! His Dad researched bats online and came across this one. He immediately knew it was the bat for him and had it shipped overnight so it could arrive for his birthday on July 3rd. The bat was going to be used in Jacob's State baseball tournament that started the following day. July 3rd came around and we waited all day for the bat to arrive. It was guaranteed by 4:30 and Jacob's Dad was super excited! Well, 4:30 came around and the bat had not arrived yet. 5:00, no bat. 6:00, still no bat. At this point, the birthday party had already started. The family has arrived and the food was cooking. The Dad was upset because he did not think it was going to arrive at all. Until, 6:30 came and in the UPS truck was... the bat. Jacob's mom quickly wrapped and placed it with his other birthday presents. Eventually, it began time to open presents and the very last one was.. the bat. Jacob opens the present and the first comment he makes is "Why'd you get me a new bat? I only have like two games left!" Everyone cracked up, his State tournament was double elimination and he was already doubting his team. His first game was in two days. The next day he wanted to try out the new bat but it was raining so the hitting was limited. His first real hit with the bat wasn't until game day. His first up at bat was a a nice hit, it got the game going nothing really special. His second up at bat, same thing. His third up at bat, was were things really started to get going. A man on second and third and on the second pitch, Jacob hit the ball just over the fence, about 205 ft to right field. It was the perfect hit and perfect pitch. Honestly, nothing could have gone better. Until, we find out that his grandparents drove over an hour to come see him and his girl came to surprise him. They both saw Jacob hit his first home run with the MAKO bat. Nothing could have been better. Our family and baseball team would highly recommend this bat to anyone.Owe and by the way he is the smallest kid on his team weighing 72lbs and 4-11 inches. They won the game 14-0!

    Too bad it broke

    By Sportsmom

    Comments about EASTON Mako Youth Baseball Bat (-11):

    Bought this bat for my 10 year old. Performed wonderful for 2 months and then broke. He is in mid season of travel and tournament play. Great performance but expected to last longer than 2 months for the price.

    As advertised.... plain and simple

    By heathx3

    from Santa Maria, CA, USA

    Comments about EASTON Mako Youth Baseball Bat (-11):

    I got one of the 31/20's for my 8yr old son and he loves it. I have previously purchased 5 Easton bats for him over the past 3 years. He has a 31/18 S3, a 30/18 Stealth, a 30/18 Octane and 32/21 Omen (2 5/8) I got the Omen for him to use in the off season to increase bat speed with the big barrel and heavier weight and by the time he is eligible to use a big barrel bat in senior or travel ball he will be used to it. He loves the composite feel and pop so we bit the bullet, sold the farm, and bought the Mako. He is not blasting balls over the fence yet, as I mentioned, he is only 8, but he is landing them in the 175 foot range and by the time he is a year older, that 200 foot LL fence should be no issue at all. What he is doing is drilling liners back up the middle and terrorizing pitchers on the comebackers. He took my right thumb nail off and I was behind a pitching cage, just gets on you super fast. I fully understand the bat will help you hit harder and further but you have to be able to hit to begin with and the consistency has his confidence sky high. Great job Easton, now to hope he can avoid the apparent breakage issues the handles have on the 2 piece bats. He did have a teammate snap an S1 so obviously, the handle needs some further design testing.

    Comments about EASTON Mako Youth Baseball Bat (-11):

    I got the MAKO for crhistmas for a upgrade from my XL1. Last year with the Xl1 I hit 29 home runs. With the mako we are halfway into our season and i only hit 10 homers. but it still is a good bat.
