Questions and Answers for 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult
My son uses a Easton XL1 32" 22 oz. this year in Little League. He is 5'8" 195 lbs. Looking for Big Barrel for fall ball and Junior High ball next year. Should he stick with the XL on the big field or switch to a more balanced bat. He's a left handed power hitter in Little Leagyue, but that doesn't mean much on the big field next year. Looking at the Rip- It Prototype AIR along with the Easton XL2.
Since your son is a power hitter I would stick with the Easton XL1. It's end load will help him in both leagues.
Is the 2012 Easton XL2 BBCOR about the same as the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR? Is the pop and sweet spot the same size?
The only difference between the 2012 and 2013 Easton XL2 is the composite used in the handle. The 2013 used a new composite to reduce vibration, but the performance will be the exact same.

I am a double and power hitter. Should I get the XL2 or the 2014 Voodoo?

I am trying to determine how similar the 2013 XL2 would feel in comparison to the 2012 DeMarini M2M with regard to "swing weight" to use a golf term? The reason I ask is, my son who is growing like a weed has been using 32" bats (He's 5'7" 145 lbs). We have determined that we want a Easton XL2. The other day he was hitting my 2012 33" DeMarini M2M and really liked the extra length, it allowed him to be off the plate a bit more to better handle inside pitches, etc. I want to know if the XL2 will be more or less end loaded than the M2M in comparative length?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is more end loaded than the 2012 DeMarini M2M.
Are they really for power hitter? I don't think there is any bat just for power hitters.

I'm not a power hitter, I can sometimes launch the ball but I'm mostly a contact hitter. Would this bat be good for me? If not then what bat would be good for me?

I currently own a 2012 XL3 32" but now becoming a sophomore and getting bigger I realIze I need a 33". Should I stay with the XL3 or move up to the XL2(both 2013 edition). Note I hit 5th in my lineup but also need to hit for average because of quick speed.
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.
