Questions and Answers for 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult
My son is 14 around 5'6" and 130 lbs. He is contact hitter with some power. What Easton bat would you recommend?
If his is more of a contact hitter I would recommend any of the Easton S Series bats (S1, S2, S3) as they are more balanced for contact hitters.
Do you think XL1 or the XL2 is better?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult has an alloy barrel, where as the XL3 has a composite barrel. Both will perform well. It will just be a personal preference of whether you prefer alloy or composite. Composite does tend to be a little more durable, but it also requires a break-in period.
I'm 15 years old and 6' tall. What size bat should I use? Which bat would be a good fit for me?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is a great fit for a power hitter, as it has an end loaded swing weight. For a contact hitter, I'd recommend a balanced model, such as the 2013 Easton S3 BBCOR: BB13S3 Adult. Based on your size and age, I'd recommend a 33".
How would the barrel size compare to the Easton Surge?
The most similar model to the Easton Surge is the S2. This 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult has a longer barrel that gives it a slightly end loaded swing weight. Most of the Surge models were designed to be more balanced. The Surge XXL model would have a barrel comparable to this XL2, and all of the bats mentioned are two-piece hybrids with alloy barrels and composite handles.
I'm 15 years old and I weigh 155 pounds. I was wondering if this bat is good for me?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is a very high quality bat with lots of pop. The extended barrel and end loaded swing weight are ideal for power hitters. If you are a power hitter looking to get more out of your swing, the Easton XL2 would be a great choice.
Would this bat suit me? I"m 5'11 and weigh 189 lbs. Which would feel better for me the XL2 or XL3?
Yes, the Easton XL2 would work well for a player your height and weight. Both the XL2 and XL3 are more designed for the power hitters that prefer a more of an end loaded design. Choosing between the two would come down to a personal preference of the one-piece (XL3) or a two-piece (XL2) design.
Is this bat good for a contact hitter? I'm 5'3'' and I would like to know if this bat is good for me.
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is going to be best designed for a power hitter because it is end loaded. Normally, balanced bats are better suited for contact hitters.
Will there be a new model for the XL2 BBCOR bat?
As of right now there are no plans for there to be a new model of the Easton XL2 BBCOR.
What bat is going to replace the XL2?
At this time there is not a bat out yet to replace the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult.
When will the 2014 XL2 BBCOR bats be out?
Unfortunately, the Easton XL2 BBCOR has been discontinued and will not be produced for the 2014 season.
I was told by a friend who has swung both the XL2 and XL3 and that the XL2 felt very top heavy while the XL3 was fairly balanced for an end-loaded bat. I am aware that both bats are supposed to feature an end load, but to a JustBats representative, are they both balanced equally? I am a gap hitter and have used more balanced BBCOR bats previously, but am interested in trying something else out.
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult and the 2013 Easton XL3 BBCOR: BB13X3 Adult have an end loaded design. However, two-piece bats that have an alloy barrel and a composite handle tend to feel heavier because the alloy weighs more than the composite.
Does this bat make more of a "ping" sound? Or a similar sound to to S1?

I'm 13 about 5'11" and 165 lbs. I have the S2, and was wondering if the XL2 or the XL1 would be better?
If you like the construction of the S2, then the 2013 Easton XL2 would be for you. If you want to try a composite, the 2013 Easton XL1 will be the way to go.
Is the 2014 s3 better for me if im 5'5 and 105 pounds. Im mostly a contact hitter.
The Easton S3 is definitely designed for the swing of a contact hitter. It will allow you to achieve higher swing speeds and better control through the hitting zone. This XL2 has a slight end load which is typically best used by power hitters with high swing speeds.
I am about 5' 5" and 105 pounds. Would the 2013 Easton XL2 or 2013 Easton S2 be better for me? I'm a contact hitter.
Deciding between the XL2 and S2 is more dependent on your strength and bat speed than height and weight. However, because you are a contact hitter, the balanced swing weight of the S2 would be more beneficial to you. The more balanced a bat is, the faster it can be swung, and the more control you have through the hitting zone. The XL2 has a slight end load which is designed for a power hitter.
I am age 14, 125 pounds, 5' 10", and mostly a contact hitter. What would be the best Easton bat for me?
The 2013 Easton S2 would be a great bat for you. It is balanced, two-piece model that is great for a contact hitter.
I don't know what BBCOR bat to get but I'm interested in the XL series. I'm a power and contact hitter with a lot of bat speed which XLl bat should I get?
The two-piece, end loaded design of the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is a perfect choice for a contact hitter with power.
I am age 11 and 120 pounds. I am a contact and a power hitter. Would it be good for me to get the adult XL2?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is too heavy for your age. We recommend the youth big barrel bat: 2013 Easton XL2: SL13X28 Senior League.
I'm 5'10 215, which length should I get? 33/30, or 34/31?

I am 6' and about 160 lbs. going to be a freshman. I mostly got singles last year. What bat out of the XL or S series would you prefer? I can produce power though.
A two-piece bat like the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult are best for a contact type of hitter. The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is also end loaded and would be great for a contact hitter with some power.
I'm looking for a bat that will last at least two years, out of XL Series. Which do you recommend for lasting time?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult bat has an alloy barrel so it is hot right out of the wrapper. With use, the bat will slowly decline in performance over time. The XL1, with its composite barrel, requires a break-in period but should continue to perform at a high level for a longer period of time. Unfortunately, there is no way to exactly predict the amount of use you can get out of any bat.
I loved the Voodoo, but everyone on my team has one, kinda old. Would this perform just like the Voodoo?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is a two-piece bat that is end loaded. The DeMarini Voodoo is also a two-piece bat that is end loaded. They will be similar in feel and performance.
I'm 5'6" 130 lbs and I have really good swing speed. I used the Easton Surge in the past and really liked it. I heard this is very similar. Would this be a good bat for me?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is the replacement for the Easton Surge. It will be similar in feel and performance.
Another question, I'm 5'10", 200 lbs. going to be in freshman ball next year. Should I get a XL2, or XL3, the deal breaker is sting, which one would sting more? Should I get a 33" or 34"?
Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 34" model in the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult because it will reduce vibration more as a two-piece design.
Why isn't there a 33 inch option?
Our web site is real-time and reflects our current inventory. The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult bat is a discontinued model, and we no longer have any 33" models in stock.
What does the composite handle do for the bat? How is it different than the XL3?
The composite handle in the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult will provide more flex or whipping action. A two-piece bat is typically designed for a contact hitter. A one-piece bat like the Easton XL3 is stiffer and is preferred by power hitters.
Right now I am swinging a 31" 26 oz. voodoo, but I am looking to make the transition to BBCOR. I am a line drive and doubles guy. Would the Easton XL2 or S2 be better for me?
The Easton S2 would be a better fit for you as it is a balanced bat designed for contact hitters, whereas the Easton XL2 is more end loaded for a power hitter.
Will there be any more 32" 29 oz. Easton XL2s?
Unfortunately, we are all out of stock of the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult and will not be getting any more back in stock in the 32" 29 oz.
I am 5' 9", 155 lbs, and I hit 4th on my team. I am thinking about getting the 2013 Voodoo or the XL2, which one do you recommend and which length.
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult and the DeMarini Voodoo will both be two-piece end loaded bats. You will not see one out perform the other, but you should be using a 33" 30 oz. bat.
When will the new line of Easton be releasing?
11/1/2013 should be the release date of the new Easton line of bats. So you can look for the 2014 Easton XL2 BBCOR at that time.
Would you recommend this bat to a power hitter that has quick hands, but also hits for average. I hit 3rd on my high school team and i'm about 6' 1'' 170-175 lbs.
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult will be great for a power hitter. You may struggle at making contact at first with this bat at first, but when you do it will fly off the bat.
Is this a double barrel? I'm about 5 ft 7 in, 130 lbs and I'm a power hitter. Is this a good bat for me? What do you recommend? My friends think this is a great bat for me but I'm not sure yet.
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult is not a double barrel bat. It is an end loaded bat, perfect for a power hitter.
Since this is not a full composite bat, what is the life span for this XL2 and how about the XL3? Can you also use both model below 55 degrees since XL2 has composite handle and aluminum barrel and XL3 is full aluminum?
There is not a time frame for how long any bat will last. The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult and the 2013 Easton XL3 BBCOR: BB13X3 use top of the line alloy and composite materials for great durability and performance. Both can be used below 55 degrees.
I am a power hitter. How would you compare the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo and this bat? Which has more pop?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult and 2014 DeMarini Voodoo will have the same amount of "pop". The Easton XL2 and the Voodoo will also have a very similar feel.
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'm 13 and about 5' 8" and 175 lbs. What size bat should I use a 32/29 or 33/30?

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.
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult bat is going to be best for a stronger batter because the weight of the bat is distributed more towards the end of the barrel. It will take a more powerful batter to swing this properly with good bat speed.
I'm 5'10" 173 lbs. I'm the RBI guy too. what bat should I be swinging, the XL2 or S2 ? And size?
The 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 is end loaded and recommended if you have above average swing speed. The 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 is well balanced and recommended is you have average swing speed. Based on your size, a 33" model is recommended.
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?
That all depends... If you have above average bat speed, then the 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 would be an excellent choice due to its endloaded design. If you have average or below average bat speed, the Easton S2 would be a better choice.

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.
