Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SP14L4
Is my statement true about the L4.0 and the L3.0? The only difference between the L4.0 and the L3.0 is that the L4.0 is a one-piece, and the L3.0 is a two-piece.
You're correct. Both the Easton L3.0 and 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14L4) models are made from the IMX and SIC Composite materials, are certified for play in ASA, and feature end loaded swing weights. The difference in design would be that the L3.0 is the two-piece model, and the L4.0 is the one-piece model. Choosing between these designs really depends on your preference between one- and two-piece models.
What is the difference between the SP14L4 and the SP14L3? Aside from being the Brett Helmer signature model the specs look exactly the same and the bats themselves look exactly the same. What are the differences if any?
The Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model (SP14L4) is going to have a one-piece single system composite design. The Easton L3.0 (SP14L3) will feature a two-piece connexion technology. Performance wise they will be very similar. Both models will feature Easton's IMX composite in the barrel.
I am interested in this bat, but want to make sure it is exactly what I want. I previously used an (SRV4) and the (SRV3) and thought the (SRV4) had too much end load for my liking, while I thought the (SRV3) had the perfect amount of end load (in the 26 oz version). Is the 34" 26 oz. L4.0 Brett Helmer right for me (knowing the info above)?
The end load in the 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14L4) is going to be a bit more pronounced than most Salvo and Synergy models. The L4.0 is going to be the most similar bat in Easton's current product line to either a Synergy or Salvo one-piece model, but we can't guarantee it won't be heavier than you want, as that's pretty subjective. We do have a free UPS returns label for unused items, and don't charge a restocking fee. If you want to check this L4.0 out, and see how it feels, you could send it back for refund/exchange.
I have the old SRV3 Synergy Speed Brett Helmer 12in barrel. Would this be the best replacement?
Yes, the 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model (SP14L4) would be the closest bat in regards to construction and feel to the SRV3 Synergy Speed Brett Helmer Model.
What is the difference between the SP14 (Green) and the SP13 (White) Brett Helmer bats?
The 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14L4) and the SP13L4 are the same bat other than the cosmetic look. The SPL13L4 is the 2013 model and the SP14L4 is the 2014 model.
How does the L4.0 Helmer Pro compare to the Synergy Speed (SRV4)? I'm mostly concerned with the sweet spot on the barrel. I am looking for something along the lines of the Speed over the Salvo.
The (SRV4) offered a 13.5" barrel length, so the 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model (SP14L4) Slow Pitch bat would not provide the same size sweet spot with its 12" barrel length. Both barrels are made from the IMX Composite material, but this L4.0 would feel more end loaded than the Synergy Speed models. If you're set on Easton, the B3.0 would possibly be a better choice. It's more balanced than the Synergy Speed would be, but the barrel length would be the same.
Is this bat a 12 inch barrel Length or longer 13" or 13 1/2" which I saw on another website?
The 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model (SP14L4) will have a 12" barrel length.
I have last years L4.0. When is the 2014 model going to be released and what are the differences from last years model?
We are expecting to receive the 2014 Easton L4.0 Brett Helmer Pro Model (SP14L4) on the 15th of March.
