Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth

88290

If I get this bat in the 31 inch size will I be able to use this bat next year and still have a lot of pop?

The sizing of the bat would vary based on the size of the player so we could not speculate as to how long that size would be appropriate. As far as durability, the Mako is a very durable model and does have a 12 month warranty for replacement if it is damaged.

I know this bat is a new bat and just cleared by the Little League Association for play. I am afraid to buy a $300 bat and the bat gets banded from Little League when I need it during tournament? Can you guarantee that LL will not band this bat? It is new and they may find a flaw and claim it does not pass their criteria after extended tests? please dont think I am crazy, I got the money for the bat, it is not cheap, I need to know my team can use it all the way through All-Stars. Last year our opponents all had composite bats they killed us with half a swing. We could have won the entire tournament. I want some composite action too.

To our knowledge this bat the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is approved for Little League because it has the stamp on the bat. They will not band this bat for any reason throughout the year.

Is the mako a contact bat? My son has power and hits home runs. Should I get the mako or if not, what else?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth can be used by both contact and power hitters. If your power hitter does not prefer an end loaded design, the high performance balanced design with massive sweet spot that the Mako features will work just fine for what they need. If they do prefer an end-loaded design I would suggest checking out the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1). It will be the most similar to the Mako in terms of design but will feature an end-loaded swing weight.

My son currently uses the Voodoo 2014 bat size 30" 17 oz. He wants the MAKO. I was thinking 29" 18 oz would be the best size for him. Do you agree? He just turned 9, is 4' 5" and weights 90 lbs.

Based on his height and weight, we suggest moving up to a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth.

My son is a 52 lbs., 8 years old and plays machine pitch baseball. He currently uses a 28" 16 oz. bat which he just got used to the size and weight. Now we need a big barrel. I want to know if we should get the MAKO Junior bat or go with the MAKO youth version?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (JBB14MK) is designed for coach pitch only. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) can be used in machine pitch.

About how many hits does this bat have until it loses it's pop?

There is no way to determine how many individual hits a bat will be able to achieve in its lifespan given the countless different ways and situations in which it can be used. There are ways to try and prolong the lifespan of the bat. It is recommended to use the bat only to hit real baseballs. The yellow dimpled balls used in some batting cages can damage the bat and shorten the lifespan. If available, it is also advantageous to use the bat only for game situations and to have a similarly weighted bat for batting practice. Also, not allowing other players to use the bat would help it last longer. Lastly, it is not recommended to use the bat in weather below 55 degrees. Below this point, the core of the ball can condense and become harder which can damage the bat.

I'm more of a power hitter. Would the new XL1 or MAKO be better for me?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) features a balanced swing weight which would give you a low M.O.I or fast swing speed through the strike zone. Where as the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) has an end load which will generate more power through the strike zone. It really comes down to your personal preference. If you're looking for increased bat speed go with the Easton MAKO (YB14MK). If you are looking for power go with Easton XL1 (YB14X1).

I am 14, 5' 5", and 130 pounds. What size should I use, and can I use this bat in high school?

This 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth model is NOT approved for high school baseball. To be legal in high school, you will need a -3 BBCOR certified model like the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK). Based on your height and weight, we would recommend a 31" model.

My son (11, 4'11", 72 lbs) has been playing with an Easton SL13S210 (30" -10) and loves it. He needs a 2.25" barrel for league ball. Will the XL1 (30/20) or the Mako (30/19) feel most like his big barrel S2?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth bat will feel most like his S2 since the MAKO has a balanced swing weight similar to the S2. The XL1 has a slightly end loaded swing weight to it.

My son is 11 years old, 5 feet tall and weighs about 105 pounds. He is a contact hitter with line drive power, but has thin wrists. What size and make would be best?

For a player this size we would typically recommend a 29" or 30" bat. With that being said, I would also look for a balanced model in a -10 length/weight ratio.

Gary T. Expert ·Apr 11, 2014

87736

Which bat is better for my son, the Mako or XL1? He is 12 years old and about 5'4". He is a good contact hitter, consistent, and although I would not consider him a power hitter, he can hit for distance. Would you recommend the end loaded Xl1 or the balanced Mako? Are there any other bats I am not asking about?

For a player of this nature, I would recommend the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK). The MAKO is perfect for hitters who hit for both power and contact. It feels extremely balanced but possesses unheralded pop.

Gary T. Expert ·Apr 11, 2014

87725

My son is 52 inches tall and weighs 89lbs. From your chart it says i should get a 29 inch bat, would it hurt to get him the 30 inch so he has a little room to grow into the bat?

No, it would not hurt to get your son the 30" 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK). It would give your son some room to grow into the bat.

What is the difference between the MAKO and the XL1 besides $40.00 and an ounce?On one of the reviews a person said his MAKO shattered on an inside pitch. Is that possible? What kind of warranty does it come with?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) and the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) are both two-piece composite bats with extended barrels. The difference is the MAKO is balanced and the XL1 is end loaded. The MAKO comes with a 12 month warranty.

Kara Expert ·Apr 11, 2014

My son is 10 and is swinging the Easton S1 in the 30" 18oz. Would you recommend this bat in a 30" 19oz?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth in that size should be a good fit for your son. With it's very well balanced swing weight the adjustment to a bat that weighs 1oz heavier would be minimal.

Kyle J. Expert ·Apr 10, 2014

I have a Louisville Slugger Attack and its light and I can swing it fast. But I think I have enough power to swing a 31" Easton MAKO. Which bat do you prefer? I'm a contact hitter who likes to hit the gaps.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) would be a great choice for you. It has a very light swing weight and a huge sweet spot. This will help you hit those gaps.

I hit with a 30 inch Easton XL3 last year and struck out 3 times in 23 games. I hit line drives but had trouble getting it through the zone. Which bat should I get?

It sounds like the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) would be a great choice for you. It will have a large sweet spot like the XL3 but its balanced swing weight will allow you to be quick through the zone.

Bobby Expert ·Apr 09, 2014

87566

My son is 56 lbs & 53", so basically a tall skinny contact hitter. He could use a larger sweet spot and more power. Which bat do you recommend?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is a great option for a contact hitter. The balanced, two-piece composite design is ideal for a contact hitter. It has an extended barrel for a larger sweet spot.

Kara Expert ·Apr 09, 2014

87505

My son is 8 years old. He is approximately 53" tall and weighs 69 lbs. Is the MAKO 29" 18 oz to big?

Based on his height and weight, the 29" 18 oz 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth is the suggested size for him.

Jason Expert ·Apr 08, 2014

87457

I was thinking about getting the next version, if there is one coming out. When and how much is it going to be?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) bat is currently the only version released. There may be a new version for 2015, we just don't have that information as of yet. It will most likely be around the $279.99 price point for the Youth bat.

Brandon Expert ·Apr 08, 2014

My son is 10 years old, 4' 9" and 70 pounds. He is a lead off hitter and although skinny and small, he is strong. Should he get a 30" Mako, 29" XL or 30" XL? He just faced a fast pitcher using a 30/17 and hit it up the middle. I like the idea of the Mako weighing an oz less and providing the same power, but I've seen multiple reviews where people say that the XL provides more power.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) would be the bat we suggest. The length that we recommend would be 30 inches. The 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) will be for more of a power hitter. This bat will be more end loaded. Where as the Mako will be more of a balanced bat.

My son is 9 years old. He weighs 62 pounds and is 46 inches tall. He plays kid pitch. What size bat do you recommend? Which bat would help him achieve a faster swing speed? He has a hard time getting the bat around.

Based on your sons height and weight, we would suggest a 27 or 28 inch bat. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is a great option for helping generate bat speed.

Patrick Expert ·Apr 06, 2014

87245

My son is 10 years old and is 58 inches tall. What size should he get? He is a big guy.

The best way to determine the correct bat size for a player is by their height and weight. However, based on his height, we suggest a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth. For more sizing information please visit our Bat Coach http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

My son is 8 years old and 77 lbs can he go from a 28" to a 30 " bat?

Based on his age, the suggested size we would recommend would be 29 inches. If he was using a 28 inch before and was having no problems, I don't think bumping up to a 30 inch would be too detrimental to his swing speed. Ultimately, it will come down to whether or not he feels comfortable. However, I don't think it will be too drastic of a weight difference.

My son is 9 and 51" tall and around 50lbs. He is very small for his age. He grew into his 28" S1 in the fall. I would like to get him a Mako this season, should I buy him the 28" or the 29"?

Based on the information you provided I would recommend a 28" 17 oz. in the Easton MAKO (YB14MK).

Does the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) bat have a 2 5/8" barrel?

No, the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) features a 2 1/4" barrel diameter. The MAKO that has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter would be the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9). You can find it here: http://goo.gl/xlrXyR

My boy is 9 years old. He is a solid, right handed, pull hitter. He has been using the Easton XL2 since last spring. It was a 28" 17 ounce bat. He loved it! Still does. But he is getting a little too far ahead of the pitch now. He is not a big kid, but he is an athletic kid. He is 50" tall and 72 lbs. My question would be is the 29" 18 ounce Mako too big for him?

I don't think increasing his bat size would create too much of a difference in generating good bat speed. Kids are growing each year, and it is important to increase the bat size accordingly. Even if a 29/18 does not fit him perfectly now, he will be able to grow into it. However, if he was using the XL2 previously and handled the end loaded feel well, increasing the size of 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) will not be a problem at all. This bat is extremely balanced and will feel pretty light. I think moving up to the 29/18 would be a good choice to go with.

My son is 4"10" and weighs about 115 lbs. What size bat would you recommend? He is a power hitter, bats 4th in the lineup and currently swings a 28"/18oz Marucci.

For someone the size of your son, we would recommend a 30" bat. You could go up or down 1" in length depending on things like how far he likes to stand from the plate and personal feel however. Weight of the bat is difficult to recommend as that is more a personal preference and depends on the strength of the player. The YB14MK model comes in a -11, so a 30" bat would weight 19oz.

My son is 10 and is 4'10" and weighs about 80 lbs. He currently swings the Easton 2013 S2 in a 30". I want to upgrade to the MAKO. Given his weight and height do you think getting the MAKO in a 30" will be fine for him?

Based on his height and weight we recommend a 30" 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK).

Trying to decide between the Louisville Slugger Attack and the MAKO. My son is 10 not a power hitter, but made with the right bat could become more like one. The price has me leaning to the Attack but I am willing to pay more. Is the $80 more make the MAKO that much better than the Attack?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) and the 2014 Louisville Slugger Attack (YBAT14-R5) are both very high performing composite bats. The advantage to the MAKO is it is an extended barrel for a slightly larger sweet spot.

Kara Expert ·Mar 26, 2014

86454

Whats better for a power hitter: the 2014 MAKO or XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth has a balanced swing weight which is typically preferred by contact hitters. The Easton XL1 has a slight end loaded swing weight and is better for power hitters.

Jason Expert ·Mar 25, 2014

86433

Which bat for youth has more pop? The 2014 Easton XL1 or the Easton MAKO?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) and the 2014 XL1 will have similar performance and pop. The major difference is that the MAKO will have a more balanced swing feel compared to the XL1. It will feel lighter. The XL1 will have a slight barrel heaviness to the swing weight that power hitters typically love.

Brandon Expert ·Mar 25, 2014

My son is 5'1" and is 103 pounds and I want his bat to last for a long time. What size should I get him?

Based on his approximate height and weight, the suggested size we would recommend would be 31 inches in the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK). However, I would probably suggest moving up to a 32 inch, that way he will be able to use the bat a little bit longer.

Merritt Expert ·Mar 25, 2014

86408

Which bat has a bigger barrel for youth: the MAKO or XL1?

The 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) has a slightly longer barrel than the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK). The MAKO is balanced and the XL1 is end loaded. The XL1 would be better for a power hitter. The MAKO is best for a contact hitter.

Kara Expert ·Mar 25, 2014

What is the break-in process on this bat? Should I use the S1, XL3, or MAKO?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) has one of the most balanced swings, an extended sweet spot, and some of the highest grade composite available. The MAKO truly is one of the best bats on the market. Along with most other composites, we recommend a break-in of 150-200 swings off of a tee or with soft toss.

Justin R. Expert ·Mar 24, 2014

Big barrel?

No, the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) will have the small 2 1/4" barrel diameter. These two models will feature big barrels: 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League & 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MK9 Senior League.

Brandon Expert ·Mar 23, 2014

My son is 4'3" and weighs 60 lbs. He's swinging a 28", -13, S2. Would the extra ounces make this bat feel heavy or does the fact that it's a better bat make up the difference? I'm just curious how much of an upgrade this would be for him. Thank you.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) will be 2 oz. heavier compared to your -13 S2. Even though the MAKO will have a balanced feel and longer barrel length the extra 2 oz. will be felt by your hitter. The two-piece fully composite design would be an upgrade compared to the S2's alloy barrel material.

Brandon Expert ·Mar 23, 2014

What would you say the max age is for a person to use this bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth, and other Youth Baseball bats with 2 1/4" barrels, can typically be used until players reach 12 or 13 years old. But it can vary between leagues.

Mac Expert ·Mar 19, 2014

Living here in the northern climates where it still feels like winter. At what temperature is the MAKO ok to take outside without concern for damage to the barrel?

We do not recommend using the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) in temperatures below 55 degrees or store the bat in temperatures under 55 degrees. Using this bat everyday under this temperature the bat will likely crack from the inside out and hurt the performance of the bat.

Kyle Expert ·Mar 18, 2014

85880

I got my MAKO today and started to hit outside. After about 20 hits, I noticed a small chip in the paint on the barrel. Is this normal?

If the chip is only in the paint, it's likely not an issue that will qualify for warranty replacement as it should not affect the performance of the bat. But composite bats do tend to develop surface cracks or their paint can chip. Due to the nature of the composite fibers, as the bat is used they are stretched out which provides increased trampoline effect. But that stretching effect is the cause of many of the cosmetic cracking issues. If you'd like to give us a call at 866-321-2287, we can better assist you with the issue.

Mac Expert ·Mar 17, 2014

85557

Does this bat require a break-in?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth will still require a little bit of break-in. We recommend about 100-150 swings rotating the barrel with this bat.

Aaron Expert ·Mar 13, 2014

I am wondering which is better, the CF6 or the MAKO?

Wow, that is a tough decision. Both bats are some of the best available. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) will feature Easton's newest composite, a slightly larger sweet spot, and one of the most balanced swing weights available. The DeMarini CF6 (DXCFL Youth) will feature the new Paradox composite, a balanced swing weight, and the D-Fusion handle which eliminates vibration during contact. Both the MAKO and the CF6 would be excellent choices.

Can I use this for Babe Ruth baseball? Is it approved? Some answers say it is and on another it's not.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth is approved for use in the Cal Ripken (ages 6-12 years old division). However, in the 13-15 year old and 16-18 year old divisions, all composite barrel bats must be BBCOR certified. That model of the Mako would be the BB14MK.

Patrick Expert ·Mar 10, 2014

85252

Which one do you prefer the CF6 or the MAKO?

I would go with the 2014 Easton Mako (YB14MK). It is one of the more hotter two-piece composite bats we have right now on the market. The CF6 (DXCFL) is a very comparable bat to the Mako (YB14MK). I would go with the Mako (YB14MK) because it offers a very balanced design.

What is the difference between TCT Thermal Composite and CNT Advanced Composite?

Does the little orange rubber cap on the end of the MAKO do anything? Because it popped off on my second swing!

The rubber piece on the end of the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth model does not serve a functional purpose that will affect the performance of the bat.

Our 12U league requires a BPF-ABI stamp on our bats. I see the BPF on the MAKO but not the ABI. What is ABI and does the MAKO offer this stamp?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth does feature the new BPF 1.15 performance mark, but it does not carry any kind of ABI stamp. I would check with a league director, but no composite bat should require an ABI stamp. The ABI test stands for Accelerated Break-In. This test ensures that once composite bats are used and broken in fully, they will not surpass the BPF 1.15 rating. Little League Baseball provides a list of all certified bats for their divisions, and they also list that the bats must be BPF and ABI certified. You will find the MAKO on that list, so it should not require any kind of ABI stamp/mark: http://goo.gl/bbWkNP

My son is 7 years old, 4'3" and 50 lbs. He currently uses an 28" 17 oz Easton Titan. What are the biggest advantages I would see from the MAKO verses his existing bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) would be a better bat in almost every regard. The MAKO will feature a larger sweet spot, higher quality materials, and a more balanced swing. The two-piece design will also help reduce vibration, and add more of a whipping action to the swing.

My son has a Demarini Vexxum that is a couple of years old. It is 29 in, 18 oz. Does the 29 in, 18 oz Mako have a bigger sweet spot or lighter swing weight than this Vexxum? Can you provide any info on the difference in performance between the two bats?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) are both very balanced bats. They are both high performing. The MAKO has a slightly longer barrel for a bigger sweet spot.

Kara Expert ·Mar 03, 2014

84677

I have a 30/19 Easton Mako and was wondering what would be a comparable bat that could be used as a cage bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth bat is a top of the line, two-piece fully composite design. Finding a bat with that design at a lower price point is difficult to achieve because it is an expensive process to manufacture two-piece composite bats and that cost is reflected in the price. Many bats with that design are going to be similar in price.

Patrick Expert ·Mar 02, 2014

84665

How big is the sweet spot on the Mako?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth model features a massive sweet spot that runs almost the entire length of the barrel with Easton's TCT Thermo Composite Technology.

Patrick Expert ·Mar 02, 2014

After purchasing the MAKO 30/19 for my son, I noticed that it's not recommended for temps under 55 degrees. Will this damage the bat, reduce the pop it has, or reduce its life expectancy if its used in colder weather?

Yes, the colder weather and temperatures can lessen the performance of the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth). The colder weather can make the baseball more dense and heavy which can damage the barrel internally and sometimes externally.

My grandson is 7, 56" tall and weighs 108 lbs. He is a power hitter and plays for Dixie League. Are these bats approved for Dixie? What bat would you suggest for helping the ball to travel further? Thank you!

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth is approved for play in Dixie League because it features the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp. The MAKO and the Easton XL1 are excellent bat options for a player looking to increase their power.

My son is 11yrs old and is small for his age. he weighs 60lbs will a 29inch/180z bat be to big? He uses a 28in 16 oz bat now . I always believed lighter is better? Thanks for your input.

With the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth the lighter you go the faster his swing will be. I think that 29 inch bat would be perfect.

Does this bat come in a -10? Our 8U team has to use a -10. If not what bat do you recommend?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) comes with a 2 1/4" barrel diameter. The MAKO does have a -10 model available, but it comes with a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. If you need a 2 1/4" barrel diameter and a -10, I would recommend the Easton XL1 youth bat.

Justin R. Expert ·Feb 24, 2014

84089

Does the MAKO require a break-in period?

We suggest that composite bats be broken in with 150-200 swings in the cage during soft toss and tee work. This would still be in effect for the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth.

My son is in little league and he needs a bat. He is 4 foot 9 and weighs 130 pounds. He is a power and contact hitter. Which bat would you prefer the DeMarini CF5 or the Easton MAKO?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) and the 2013 DeMarini CF5 (DXCFL) would be nice options for your son. Both models are going to be the two piece fully composite design and will be similar in balance and feel while swinging the bat. The MAKO features new connection improvements that are designed to help reduce sting and vibration. As far as performance and durability go, both bats are going to be top of the line.

My son is 10, 56" tall, and around 70 pounds. He has a slow swing and dips his back shoulder. We are working on a quicker more level swing. MAKO or XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK ) is best for a player with a slower swing. It is a very balanced bat that would benefit a player with slower bat speed. The Easton XL1 is an end loaded bat and is best for a power hitter, with quick bat speed.

He plays USSSA 11u travel ball and is a contact/line drive hitter and wants to go to a longer barrel bat, without compromising bat speed and possible pick up a little more pop to drive it through the gaps. Which MAKO do you recommend?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) would be fantastic option to go with. It features a balanced swing weight along with an extended barrel design, making it the best of both worlds for contact and power hitting in mind.

MAKO vs S1? My son has the S1 that he used last season but wants to buy the MAKO this year. What are the biggest differences?

My son is not a power hitter but makes good contact. Should I get him the MAKO or S1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK) Youth and 2014 S1 Youth are both very balanced two-piece composite designs that would be great options for a contact hitter. The MAKO is the highest quality bat in the Easton product line and offers a lighter swing weight and larger sweet spot than the S1. If the S1 is at a better price point for you, it's still a high quality option.

My son is not a power hitter but makes good contact. Should I get him the MAKO or the XL1?

My daughter is 5'3" and weighs 167 lbs. She plays fastpitch softball. She's a power hitter and I was wondering how this bat could really benefit her when it comes to hitting?

Instead of the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth, she would need the 2014 MAKO Fastpitch model. It will allow her to keep her bat speed up because of its very lightweight and balanced swing feel. Also, it will have a longer barrel length to give it a larger sweet spot.

My son is 9 years old, 4'5" and 65 lbs. He plays on a travel team and a rec team, so we end up purchasing a new bat each season. Last Spring he did very well with the 2013 S1 28/16. He is a contact hitter more than a power hitter, but in the Fall his coach recommended he use a 28/18 XL1, but we noticed his bat speed dropped and he seemed to struggle. Now we are trying to decide between the Makko or replacing the S1 for this Spring. What would you suggest?

Both the Easton MAKO and the Easton S1 youth models are very balanced in swing weight. The MAKO is going to have a -11 drop while the S1 will have a -12 drop. The S1 will be the lighter of the two models giving him the best bat speed. Ultimately, the choice depends on what kind of hitting style the player would like to return to--the quicker bat speed of the S1 or the extended barrel design (similar to the XL1) of the MAKO.

Tessa L. Expert ·Jan 15, 2014

Does the MAKO lose its pop over time?

Thanks for your help.

Based on his height and weight we recommend a 29" 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth. However, if he is comfortable with the 30" COMBAT, he could move to the MAKO since it is a balanced bat.

I'm 12 and play in the Pony Baseball Bronco division. Can I use the Senior MAKO?

The Pony Baseball Bronco division allows 2 1/4" - 2 5/8" barrels, so you would be able to use the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9 Senior League) because it has a 2 5/8" barrel. However, you would not be able to use the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB Senior League) because it has a 2 3/4" barrel.

My son plays travel baseball and just turned 9. He is 52" tall and weighs 59 pounds. He has a bat swing speed of 58 MPH (measured using his 28"-13 Easton Reflex) so he's got a quick bat and hits for high average. Would a jump to the 29" -11 MAKO be too much of a jump?

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 29" model. The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth is typically preferred by contact hitters because of its two-piece design balanced swing weight.

I want to get him a Mako 31/19 or 32/20. Which would you suggest. I'm afraid the 32 would be too big, but like I said he is very strong.

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth in a 32''. However, because he is used to swinging a 30'' it may be better to get a 31''. Moving up to a 32'' may be too much of a jump in size.

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth seems like it would be the better fit for your son. It will have a light swing weight and allow for increased swing speeds. The XL1 will feel slightly end loaded and if he said it felt to heavy it would be best to use a balanced bat like the MAKO.

My son is almost 8 years old. He is using an Easton Convert YBCT 28/16. He has a fast swing and great contact, but very little power. He used another players 26/14 Mako big barrel in a tournament over the weekend and hit it farther than ever. I don't want a big barrel with only the spring season of coach pitch left. Would the this bat be a good fit for him?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth would be a good fit for an 8 year old. It is going to have a light swing weight which will allow for an increased swing speed.

Tori Expert ·Nov 19, 2013

I am deciding between the MAKO or the S1. I am hearing the MAKO is end loaded. Which one has the lightest swing weight? Is this bat as balanced as the S1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth does have an extended barrel that usually gives the bat an end loaded swing weight. However, the MAKO is the most balanced bat in the 2014 Easton product line. The new TCT Composite material allows the bat to be more balanced than even the S1.

Will the Easton Mako or the DeMarini CF6 help me hit for more line drives and deeper hits?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth will be lighter weight than the DeMarini CF6. The low M.O.I will allow for increased swing speeds.

My son has the 2011/2012 Easton XL1 in a 30/20 that he has been swinging for 2 years. He consistently drives the ball to the fence. Now, he is 10, 5'3'', and 153lbs. Should I stay in the XL series 31/21 or try the MAKO 31/20?

The Easton XL series is end loaded and we normally recommend it for power hitters. If he is having success with that bat it may be best to stick with it. The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth is going to have a lighter swing weight than the XL series and would be better suited for a contact hitter.

Tori Expert ·Nov 15, 2013

77708

What is the best procedure to break in the MAKO bat?

The best way to break in a two-piece fully composite bat like 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth is taking 150-200 swings playing soft toss or off a tee using real baseballs. Begin swinging at 40% power and work our way up to full strength as you get closer to 200 swings. It’s also important to rotate the bat ¼” after each swing to ensure that you get complete barrel coverage.

Which bat will have better results the Easton Mako or the DeMarini CF6. Thanks

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth and the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFL Youth are going to be very comparable bats. The MAKO will have a slightly bigger sweet spot, and the CF6 will have the D-Fusion handle to eliminate vibration and extend the sweet spot through the entire barrel.

My son is 5'2" and 90 lbs. His bat is a 31" 21 oz. COMbat. What bat would be better for him the MAKO or the XL1. He has a true swing and really fast hands.

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth is a balanced bat and is designed for a hitter with quick bat speed. The 2014 Easton XL1: YB14X1 Youth is slightly end loaded, and is best suited for a power hitter, with quick bat speed.

Kara Expert ·Oct 08, 2013

If you're a good power and solid contact hitter what's a better bat? The Easton Mako or the 2014 XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth bat would be a great choice for the balance and extended barrel it provides. The Easton XL1 would be better for true power guys who love the end loaded feel.

My son is 9 years old, 4'5" tall and weighs 85 lbs. What size bat would you recommend. He is the clean up hitter has good bat speed and strength. Currently he uses an Easton S2 29" 16 oz. I was thinking of moving him into a 29" 18 oz. Easton Mako or 29" 19 oz. XL1. He has, on occasions, used a Marucci 30" 19 oz. and hit well. I think that might be to big at this time and wanted to get an opinion on proper size for him.

A 29" bat length would be the recommended size for him in the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth bat. The balanced swing weight and extended barrel would be awesome for a clean up guy.

Brandon Expert ·Sep 29, 2013

69985

In general, what do you recommend for a 6 yr. old, who's 4' 4", that weighs 65 lbs.? He has good contact and decent power for his age.

At 6 years old, most players benefit the most from using a balanced model like the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth for increased swing speed and bat control. As far as the length goes, based on his height and weight, we recommend a 28" model.

Mac Expert ·Sep 27, 2013

My son is 11. He is the number four hitter. He is 5'6" and 140 pounds. What bat do you recommend?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth is best for a contact hitter who needs to increase their bat speed. A stronger, power hitter would be better using the 2014 Easton XL1: YB14X1 Youth.

Based on his height and weight we recommend a 29" 18 bat. The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth would be a great option for a contact hitter. It features an extended barrel and balanced swing weight.

My son just turned 12, is 5'3", & about 105 pounds. He has been the cleanup hitter for several years now. Has great bat speed and hits with power. I like the concept of the MAKO as I love bat speed with power. He has been swinging the old Easton Stealth full composite with 30" 17 oz. (-13) ratio. Is this an ideal bat to move to and what length/weight would you recommend?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth is similar to the Easton Stealth. It is a two-piece fully composite, balanced bat. It also features and extended barrel for a bigger sweet spot. Based on his height and weight we recommend a 31" 20 oz.

What is the difference between the "Prebook" Mako and the regular Mako bats? A lot of your answers specifically refer to a "Prebook" version of the bat.

Prebook just indicates that we are taking orders to reserve the right to the 2014 MAKO when they are released on 8/30/2013.

John Expert ·Aug 21, 2013

62923

Should I buy my son an XL1 or a MAKO? Which has more pop, and which will help him generate more power?

Both models will have the same performance certifications on them, so it really depends on the swing weight that he uses more efficiently. The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth gives the player a larger sweet spot but is much more balanced than the XL1. The more balanced the bat is, the faster it can be swung; this is typically what helps contact hitters generate more power. If your son already has high swing speeds and hits for power, the slightly end loaded swing weight of the XL1 would be the better choice.

Mac Expert ·Aug 20, 2013

62779

Is the MAKO going come in drop 5?

I'm still a little confused about the MAKO vs the XL3. My son has a power swing and hits the ball great with the XL3. Should we stay with the XL3 or will the balanced swing of the MAKO make-up for the end loaded power XL3?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth bat would be ideal for a contact hitter that wants to throw more barrel at the ball and make more contact. If he is having success with the XL3, stick with it!

Bottom line, will this bat hit it harder/further than any of the S Series, or XL Series bats? Over the last 2 years, my son still has the XL1, XL2 and XL3.

It's all in how the player uses the bat. The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth carries the same BPF 1.15 performance certification as the other S and XL Series models. Any difference in performance will be attributed to the player's preference for balanced or end loaded bats.

My son is moving up to kid pitch would it be better to swing a big barrel or the mako he swings xl 3 big barrel now.

If you son is swinging an XL3 with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, the MAKO Youth's swing weight, actual weight, and barrel diameter will provide a very different feel. The MAKO is a very balanced bat designed for increased bat speed, and the XL3 is a slightly end loaded bat that is designed for a power hitter. It's hard to estimate differences in the performance he will see, as the bats are so different from one another.

I hit 10 home runs with my Easton S1. Will this have more pop?

The beiggest benefit of the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth is that it will have the same balanced swing weight as the 2013 Easton S1: YB13S1 Youth, but with a larger sweet spot like the XL1 features. They are able to increase this sweet spot without compromising the balance due to the new TCT Thermo Composite.

How will this compare to the S1 and the XL1? It’s my understanding the S1 is better for a contact hitter and a XL1 belter for a power hitter. What is the MAKO better suited for?

The Easton MAKO is going to be a blend of both the S1 and the XL1. The MAKO will be a very balanced model like the S1 and still have the massive sweet spot of the XL1. The MAKO can be used for both a contact hitter and a power hitter because of way it is constructed.

How is the MAKO different/better than the XL1 specifically? I am ready to purchase a new bat for my son(currently uses the Omen 30" 18 oz. and it is too light for him. He is a line drive/power hitter. Thanks.
