The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult is a baseball bat. The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch replaced the Stealth Series, and would be a great option for your daughter.
My son (high school Frosh) went through the Easton hit lab and got his bat choices marked for him. They suggest the Speed Series opposed to XL. But what does the number mean? He got an "85" by S1? and an 84 by XL3. Thanks.
I would recommend contacting Easton directly at 1-800-632-7866. Unfortunately, we do not have any information regarding the scoring system for their hit lab.
What DeMarini bat could this be compared to?

The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult will have the most flex out of all three bats. If you do not like flex and want a balanced bat the 2013 Marucci Black 2 would be the best option. The RIP-IT Prototype II is stiffer, but it is end loaded.
I want a 2012 version of the S1, do you know where i can get one new?

My son is just under 4' 9" and 72 lbs. Tall skinny 9.5 year old and yet to show power. Most charts have him at a 29". I would like to get a few seasons out of this bat, so I am leaning towards a 30". As well as which bat would you choose, the Easton S1 or the Easton S2? I see one should not use your bat in the cage with the yellow balls, what should he use... cheap similar weight and length bat?
We suggest with the height and weight given, a 30" bat. I would start with the Easton S2, I think that would do just fine but make sure you don't get the BBCOR one. It would be way to heavy. He needs either a Youth Big Barrel bat or a Youth model.
Does the Easton S1 come in a -12? My son is 11 and small for his age, and definitely more of a contact hitter. Should he get the Easton S1 as opposed to the Easton XL1, however I cannot find it in a 30/18.
The 2013 Easton S1 Youth would be more for a contact hitter but will help generate some power. We do it in the 30" 18 oz. just make sure it's the youth model. The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult would be for a high school player and beyond.
I just bought the 2013 Easton S1. I understand 150-200 cuts off the tee and/or soft toss will help break it in with 1/4" rotation of the barrel after each cut. Is outside temperature a consideration?
For composite bats like the 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1, we do not recommend using them in temperatures below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. At that temperature, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage the bat.
I'm 16 and 5'9". There is a 100 dollar difference between the S1 and S2. I used a 32" Vexxum last year and I hit .318 as a freshman on varsity. Which bat would keep me hitting the ball low and line drives?
It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate. Thus, the Easton S2 would be recommended as it is more similar to the Vexxum.
I'm a 5'1" 100 pound middle infielder, I'm not a power hitter, more of a contact hitter. Would you suggest the Easton S1 or the Easton XL1?
The 2013 Easton XL1 is end loaded and for more of a power hitter. The Easton S1 is lighter swinging and more for a contact hitter.
I know you are not supposed to use your game bats in the batting cage, but if I use real baseball's will it affect the bat's pop or damage it in anyway?
If you use real leather baseballs you will be fine. It actually might warm the bat up faster for game play.
What would you recommend for a 250lb 6'1" 15 year old: S1 or XL1?
If you are more of a contact hitter, I would suggest the 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR. If you are more of a power hitter, then I would suggest going with the 2013 Easton XL1 BBCOR.
Just purchased an Easton S1, what is the recommended break in process, if any? Is it game ready out of the wrapper?
The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult will require a break-in period of 150-200 hits off of soft toss or a tee. Start at 50% power and work your way up from there. Make sure to rotate the bat 1/4" in between each hit to break-in the barrel evenly.
What bat would you recommend to a 18 year old high school kid who is 5'6" and 128 lbs. The Easton S1 or the Marucci Black 2?
Based on his height and weight, I would recommend a 31" 28 oz. model. Both the 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult bat and the 2013 Marucci Black 2 BBCOR: MCBB20 Adult bat are great two-piece, balanced models. The Easton S1 has a composite barrel and will require a break-in period, whereas the Black 2 features an alloy barrel and does not require a break-in period.
Would you recommend the Easton S1 BBCOR or the Easton XL1 BBCOR for a 13 year old kid that is 5'7" and 150 lbs?
We would recommend the Easton S1 BBCOR for a contact hitter because it is a balanced model. The Easton XL1 BBCOR is more end loaded and would be better for a power hitter. Both are great bats.
Has Easton addressed the issue with the 2012 S1 breaking so often in the 2013 design?
According to our numbers (and Easton's numbers), the 2012 S1 BBCOR bat had average to slightly above average durability. There were no reported issues in manufacturing with the 2012 nor the 2013 models. However, the handle in the 2013 model was upgraded with a slightly stronger composite material.
Does the 2012 have a composite handle? I read from another question that the biggest difference is the composite handle. Does it make a big difference?
The 2012 Easton S1 BBCOR will have a composite handle and the only difference is the new 2013 SIC composite handle reduces a little more vibration in the handle than last years model.
Is this bat the same as the Easton S1 from last year?
The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult bat is very similar to the 2012 model. The only difference is the 2013 model has the SIC Black Carbon Composite handle.
I'm a 5'10'', 185lb senior in high school who about to replace his 2012 Easton Surge. I want a nice balanced bat, but don't want to spend the $400 for the 2013 S1. So which bat would be better: 2012 Easton S1, or Rip-It Prototype air? (I'm looking at purchasing a 33" since speed is not a problem)
The Easton S1 BBCOR is a two-piece, fully composite bat. The Rip-It Prototype Air is a one-piece, fully alloy bat. Both are balanced bats, so I would recommend going with the material you are most comfortable with.
I'm 5'3 100lbs and I am now about to move up to high school ball. I'm thinking about ordering this bat, but since i'm using a drop 5 XL3 right now I don't know if I should get the XL1 or this bat.
If you had really good bat speed with the -5 Easton XL1 I would stick with that, but if you're bat speed was lagging even just a little I would go ahead and get the Easton S1.
I bought this bat, and it seems to be split near the knob under the tape. Will this effect the bats pop, and if so what should i do?
It should not affect the pop of the bat, but it may cause the handle to vibrate more. If it is a problem you should contact Easton about a warranty replacement.
What is better, the 2013 S1 or the 2012 Voodoo? I like both but i don't know which to get. I am a line drive/ power hitter.
The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult bat is a two-piece fully composite design. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat is a two-piece hybrid design with a composite handle and alloy barrel. The Easton S1 features a balanced swing weight and the DeMarini Voodoo has a slight end loaded feel.
Will Just Bats get any more of the 2012 S1's in stock?
The 2012 models are discontinued and we will not be receiving any more in stock.
Will a -10 29 inch s1 bat be too big for a 4'8" 85 lb boy?
The 29" is the smallest BBCOR that we offer. Since the 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult is so balanced, I think it will work.
Undecided between the 2013 S1 and DeMarini CF5 and Demarini Voodoo. Son is 14, 5'3", moving up from small diamond 2 1/4 barrel, to the big diamond and 2 5/8 barrel with -3. Used a 31/21 Voodoo 1/2&1/2 last year. Single and double hitter. Strong body core, with quick hands. I have read the 2012 S1 had major breaking issues early in the bat life, and want to avoid any situation like that. Which would you recommend of the 3 bats?
Easton upgraded the composite materials in the handle of the 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult for better durability. The 2013 DeMarini CF5 also changed their composite materials for a more balanced feel. The Voodoo will be the most end loaded, better for a player with quick bat speed and power.
What is the difference between the 2012 S1 and the 2013 S1?
The main difference between the 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult bat and the 2012 Easton S1, is the composite material in the handle in the 2013 model is slightly more durable than the handle in the 2012 model.
My son is 13 but is 6'2" and weighs 250. He hits 4th and is a big power hitter. He has the Easton Surge that we got for him last year and to be honest that bat had no pop at all. He hit with a friends S1 from last year and hit a homerun with it every time he used it. Is the 2012 still avalible and if not is the 2013 the same?
Unfortunately, we are out of stock of the 2012 Easton S1. However, the 2013 Easton S1 is available. The only difference is an upgraded composite in the handle in the 2013 model.
Undecided on the Easton S1 or S2. I currently have the 2012 S2, but it broke at the connector. Looking for a little more "pop" on contact. I am 13 years old, 5'5" and 108 lbs. I'm a contact hitter. Also, can you recommended a length? 31" or 32"?
The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult and S2 will be very similar to last season's models. The difference between the two will be the material that the barrel is made out of. The S1 is a two-piece bat made of all composite materials. This bat will require a period of break-in but will perform at a higher level for a longer period of time. The S2 is also a two-piece bat but will have a composite handle and alloy barrel. This bat will not require a break-in period. It will be hottest right out of the wrapper. This bat will slowly lose it's pop over time. If you are comparing the 2012 models to 2013 you will see the same pop. Both bats being two-piece in designs will help reduce the amount of vibrations that can reach the players hands. The 2013 Easton's will come with a full 400 day warranty.
What's the major difference between the Easton S1, S2, S3 and S4?
The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult bat is a two-piece fully composite design.

What bat is better for me if you hit 1st or second but still hit for power, and also still has good swing speed?
The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult would be a great option for what your are looking for.
i used my rip it prototype air in a batting cage with those yellow dimpled balls. I heard that they can reduce the pop of my bat. Should i be worried? Can rip it refund my bat because i used it within 30 days.
Yellow dimpled pitching machine balls are more dense than a regular baseball and can decrease the lifespan of any bat by causing it to crack or dent much quicker. You would have to speak with Rip-It regarding warranty or return inquiries. Their phone number is 1-407-649-4104.
Besides price, what is the difference between S1 BBCOR and S3 BBCOR. Asking for a 14 year old player. Recommendation?
The S1 is two-piece, full composite. The S3 is one-piece full alloy. It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate.
What are the differences between the 2012 and the 2013 models of the S1.
The 2013 Easton S1 has a SIC black carbon composite handle to help reduce vibration, while the 2012 Easton S1 does not.
Will hitting with this bat in a batting cage that use synthetic balls affect the bat when used in game play with leather balls? Will the pop be reduced by the excessive hitting?
You should never use your game bat in a batting cage. Those yellow dimpled balls are much more dense than an actual baseball, and can crack your bat, or reduce the pop significantly.
Which bat is better, and offers more pop, the 2013 Easton S1 or the 2013 Easton XL1?

whats the difference between the 2013 model and the 2012 model? why is there a big price difference between the two?
The 2013 S1 features new composite in the handle to further reduce sting and vibration. The 2012 S1 is on closeout pricing because it's an older model.

It's difficult for us to make a recommendation without knowing what bat he's been using. It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate. This is the main thing to look at when purchasing a new bat.

What benefit does the composite offer vs the alloys now(s1 vsS2)? I assume they don't get as hot as before once broken in, so beside feel any differences?
The main difference between alloy and composite is that alloy does not require a break-in period and will be hot from day one. Composite bats will require 150-200 hits before they are fully broken-in.
What is the difference between the Easton S1, S2, and S3's?
The Easton S1 is a two piece, fully composite bat. The S2 is also a two piece, but comprised of an alloy barrel with a composite handle. The S3 is a one piece alloy construction. The S1 will have a break in period of about 200-300 hits, and the S2 and S3 will be ready to go out of the wrapper.

What temperature can the Easton S1 be used in?
I recommend not to use any composite bats in temperatures under 60F, or your bat could break.
I'm looking into purchasing a bat and I am torn between this bat and the RIP-IT Prototype Air. Which one would you recommend more, and why?
This really depends on the type of hitter you are. The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 is a two-piece composite bat and will provide a lot of flex, good for a contact hitter. The RIP-IT Prototype Air will be stiffer, better for a power hitter. Both will be very balanced.
I have two questions: 1. Do you have any Easton Omen -3 32 inch bats held back in stock for sale? 2. I understand that the 2013 Easton Power Brigade is supposed to replace the Easton Omen. I also understand that the S1 is equally weighted for a smooth swing for medium to slow speed and the XL1 is end weighted for a faster swing speed. My question is this, does the S1 or the XL1 feel more like an Easton Omen swinging them? Thank-you Nathan Notter
We do not have any Easton Omen -3 bats in stock. The Omen will be somewhere between the XL1 and S1 in terms of balance. The S1 feels a little more balanced than the Omen, and the XL1 will feel more endloaded.
