I'm torn between the XL1 and Marucci black 2. I play u13 travel, I'm 5'6 and weigh 135. Which should i get?
If you are more of a power hitter the Easton XL1 will definitely be the way to go. If you are more of a contact hitter the Marucci black will be the bat for you. Both of these bats are very high performing bats though.
My son is a 10 year old and about 5'1" at 110 lbs. Would the XL1 be a good bat for him to use? He currently uses the S1.
The Easton XL1 is a great bat, but depending on your sons hitting style it may be better to stay with the Easton S1. The Easton XL1 is going to be an end loaded bat so it is preferred by power hitters.
My son is 13, 5'4" and 106 lbs. He is hitting very well with DeMarini CF5 (-8) and used Easton S1 (-10) the last 2 seasons. Should we move him to the S1 (-3) or is the XL1 (-5) a better transition for contact hitters? Mostly a contact hitter, but can hit with some power.
The 2013 Easton XL1 is a two-piece bat that is fully composite like the DeMarini CF5 and the Easton S1. The XL1 is an end loaded model, so there would be an adjustment going from the CF5 and S1 to the XL1. If he was successful with the CF5 and S1, then I would stick with those models.
My son is 12 and about 135 lbs. playing 12U. Would this bat be good for him?
The 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League would be a good bat for a 12 year old player.

What are the differences between this bat and the Marruci Black 2?
The Easton XL1 is a two-piece composite bat. The Marucci Black 2 is a two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The XL1 will be a little more endloaded.
My son is 14 he is 5'5", and weighs 110lbs. He is a good contact hitter, but doesn't really seem to get much distance on his hits. Would he be better using the Easton XL or SL 31 or 32 inch bat? The bat he has used previously was an Easton Titan SC900 29/20 model BZ275.
The 32" Easton S Series are going to be best for your son. The balanced swing weight on the S series make the bats perfect for contact hitters.
Why does the drop 5 have more pop then the drop 8?
The drop 5 and the drop 8 will have exactly the same amount of pop. The bat may seem to be performing better, because it is a bigger bat.
Hi my son is 13 years old, is 5' 5" and weighs 105 lbs. Would a 31" be the right size for him? If not, what size?
I recommend the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League in a 31" for your son who is 5' 5" and 105 lbs.
Which should my son get the New Rawlings Velo, Easton New Xl3, or the New Easton Xl1 he swings a -5 32/27. He is a contact hitter and sometimes a power hitter but he doesnt worry about homeruns really he just about his average.?
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.

Power hitters really like this bat.
Whats a key difference between the Easton SL and the Easton XL? I'm more of a power hitter who bats 3 in the lineup. My friends have the XL and love it but i guess there's is lat years model.

The Easton S1 and XL1 were made to replace the Omen. They will be similar, but the XL1 will feel more endloaded compared to the Omen.

My son is playing 11U, is 5' tall and roughly 115-120 lbs. He's the biggest power hitter on the team (several hr's this season) and also hits for average. He's crazy about the new Easton Power Brigade but choosing which one is difficult! He's been using a -10 and we wonder if he could or should move up to the -5 or stay -10 and go with the alloy bats. Help!
Typically, I see 13 year old players swinging the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League -5 size bats. This is a transitional size that will prepare them for the Adult -3 BBCOR bats they will be swinging in high school. Try the 2013 XL1 or 2013 XL2. We currently have those in -8 sizing that will be a step up from his current -10 size. There is also a 2013 XL3 that comes in a -9 size. Again, I would recommend him moving into a -8 rather than make the jump to a -5. The 2013 XL1 will be a two-piece all composite bat. The 2013 XL2 will be a two-piece design with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The 2013 XL3 will be a one-piece all alloy bat. All of these bats are in Easton's Power Brigade and will have a slight end load feel that power hitters tend to love. These bats feature a Full 400 Day Warranty from Easton.
I am 5 foot 2 inches about 90 pounds, and 13 years old. I am going to get a bat for another year, should I get a 32 inch or 31 inch?
You should go with a 31" bat, or you could go with a 32" Easton XL1 if you feel like you will be growing more this year.
Which will have a bigger barrel the XL1 or the DeMarini Voodoo?
Both the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League Bat and the 2013 DeMarini Voodoo: DXVDR have a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter.
I have this bat and the XL3 which bat is better for cold weather?
Neither, the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League or the 2013 Easton XL3: SL13X35 Senior League will perform the same. However, when under 50 degrees the baseball becomes more dense and harder in feel. This will, in turn damage the bat. Alloy bats will be easier to see any damage, barrel dents, etc. The Composite barrel bats will damage from the inside out. It will be harder to see any damage on these bats, though it still could happen.
What is the kind of grip on the bat called?
Performance Diamond Grip
Where is the 32" 27 oz.?
The 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat in a 32" 27 oz. model is currently out of stock. They will be listed on the website when we get them in stock.
Does this bat have flex?
Yes, with this **PRE-BOOK** 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat being a Two-Piece design. You will get some flex as you swing the bat through the zone. This bat will be 100% Composite so make sure to break it in before you take it into game use. 100-200 swings off of a tee or soft toss while rotating the bat in your hands should work just fine.
Which bat would be similar to the Easton sv12 that's a drop 5 ?
The Easton SV12 was a hybrid bat. The two most popular -5 hybrid bats currently on the market are the Marucci Black and DeMarini Vexxum.
I'm 5'4", 13 years old. I have good bat speed and can drive the ball. My question is should I get a 31" or a 32"?
Based on your size, I would suggest a 31" bat. Here is a link to our Bat Resource Guide that can help you choose the right bat size. http://www.justbats.com/bat-resource-guide/selecting-a-baseballbat/
I'm 4'10",14 years old with good swing speed. Would this bat be good for me?
Yes, the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League would be a good choice. The recommended bat length for your height would be 31".
I'm 5'7 and weight 170 I got a fast bat speed and can drive the ball. Do you think this bat is good for me. Thanks.
Yes. The 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat will be endloaded with great pop, making it a good option for players like yourself.
Is there any difference between the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat and the 2012 version other then the color.
The new 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League features, a 400 day manufactures warranty, and a new more durable composite for the handle. The older model has a 12 month warranty, and the same composite in the handle and the barrel.
I am 5'6" and 120 pounds and a lead off hitter with a fast swing and some pop, will this bat be good for me?
The 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League would definitely be a good option. It is suited for a player with above average swing speed as it has a slight end load.
I' 5' 4" and about 105 pounds. I'm more of a contact hitter. I've been using the XL2 but I want to try a composite bat this time. Would the XL1 be good for me? My swing is also not so fast.
The 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 is an end loaded bat, better for a player with quick bat speed. We recommend the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110.
Will Easton make a 32 inch drop 5 for this Xl1?
Yes, the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat is manufactured in a 32" model. We will have all sizes in stock for shipment on 11/15.
Is the weight lighter then last years model?
No, the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League is end loaded just like the 2012 model.
What does flex mean?
When you swing a two-piece bat through the zone, it will actually flex more than a one-piece bat causing a whip-like effect. In theory, this whip-like effect causes extra distance when contact is made. However, some players prefer the stiffer feel of a one-piece bat. It really comes down to the preference of the player.
My son is 12 years old, 5'3"and 105 lbs. He hit bombs with a 2011 LL Omen LNC2XL 31" 21oz. bat last season. Now that LL is over for him, what Easton bat would have similar performance?
That Omen that your son was swinging was a Two-Piece all composite designed bat. Easton will have a 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat coming out. It is being released November 14, 2012. This bat will be a Two-Piece all composite design. It comes with a full 400 day manufacturer warranty from Easton. This bat will feature a Massive Sweet Spot and an Extra Long Barrel that will be slightly End Loaded. The XL1 is typically loved by power hitters.

will you get this bat in a 32 inch?
Yes, *the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League baseball bat will be available in a 32" size.
What bat has more pop the XL1 or 2013 voodoo, and which has a longer barrel?
Based off reviews the 2012 Easton XL1 has more pop than the 2013 DeMarini Voodoo. The Easton XL1 will also have a larger barrel with more of an extended sweet spot.
What's the difference between composite bats and aluminum bats?
Composite bats require a break-in period, and they will keep their pop longer after being broke in. Aluminum bats are going to be hot right out of the wrapper, but every time you use the bat it is going to gradually start having less pop.
I use the xl3 last year but learn that one piece bats are for power hitters and am a contact hitter would it be a good switch from the xl3 to the xl1?
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, I think you should stick with the XL3 as it's still a endloaded bat great for power hitters.
What is the highest drop weight the Easton XL1 Senior League will be available at?
The 2013 Easton XL1 Senior League models will be available in -5 and -8 length to weight ratios.
What type of hitter will this benefit?

Which bat would be better for a contact hitter the Marraci Black 2 or the Easton XL1?

This bat will have a Evenly Balanced Swing Weight and an Extended Barrel for a larger Sweet Spot. The 2013 XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat would be a Two-Piece all Composite design. This bat would require a period of break-in. Plus, this bat will have a barrel heavy end loaded feel to its swing weight. Typically, power hitters like the XL3.
Will this bat have a lot of pop?
Yes, the 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 Senior League bat will have a lot of pop. This bat will require you to break it in with 100-200 swings. Hitting off of a tee or soft toss while rotating the barrel.

I am 5 11 and 90 lbs. Would this be good 4 me?
Yes. The 2013 Easton XL1: SL13X15 is a great bat with excellent pop.
Why do composite bat require break-in time?
The carbon fibers that make up a composite barreled bat need to be broken down first to begin the getting the trampoline effect which is what gives your bat good pop off the barrel.
I am interested in this bat but would need it by October 25th. When do you think you will have them? I am looking at a 32/27.

Both the Easton Omen and theEaston XL1: SL13X15 Senior League baseball bats are two piece fully composite bats, however; the XL1 has an extra-long barrel and a slightly endloaded swing weight for added power. The bats are also made out of different composite materials as well.
Would it be a good choice for someone going into high school soon?
It would depend on if your a power hitter, compared to a base hitter. Your XL1 series will be better suited for a home run hitter, because of the extendwed barrel and endloaded feel. The S1 having a more balanced swing weight would be a better choice for the placement or base hitter. Here are links to both bats to compare. http://www.justbats.com/product/--pre-book---2013-easton-s1-bbcor--bb13s1-adult/15981/ http://www.justbats.com/product/--pre-book---2013-easton-xl1-bbcor--bb13x1-adult/15980/
Is the weight evenly distributed or is it top heavy?
The XL1 is going to have a little more of an endloaded feel, because of the extended barrel size. By having more mass in the barrel, you will generate more power in your swing. If your looking for a more balanced bat, you would want to look at the S1 in the Speed series. Here is the link to compare the features of each bat. http://www.justbats.com/product/easton-xl1-bbcor--bb11x1-adult/14436/?pa_source=justbats&pa_campaign=was&pa_medium=badges&pa_content=easton-xl1-bbcor--bb11x1-adult http://www.justbats.com/product/--pre-book---2013-easton-s1-bbcor--bb13s1-adult/15981/
How many swings to break it in?
A proper break-in period entails 150-200 hits off a tee starting at about 40% power and gradually increasing. The player will also need to rotate the bat a little between each hit to ensure an even break-in across the entire surface of the barrel.
Will this bat be good for a strong contact hitter?
Yes. The 2013 Easton XL1 will be a great two-piece fully composite bat that would work well for a strong contact hitter.
