Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB14MK

96967

I am 14 years old, 5 foot 5 and I weigh 110 pounds. I am a contact hitter with fast hands. I am deciding which bat I should use between the 2014 Mako and the 2014 S1. Which would be the best fit for me?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S1) would be good options. They are very similar in design. The MAKO has a more extended barrel length and features a more advanced connection point which is better to prevent sting and vibration.

I am 5'6" and about 104 lbs. Should I stick with a 31" or go to a 32"?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend staying with a 31" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK).

My son has the S1. He is 12 and is generally a power hitter. How do the S1 and MAKO compare?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the S1 are very comparable bats in design. They are both two-piece composite designs with balanced swing weights. The MAKO uses Eastons newest TCT Thermo composite for a lighter swing weight and bigger sweet spot.

This past year I used a 32 inch bat and had success but I am moving up to varsity and I am only 5 foot 7 and weigh 120 pounds. should I move down to a 31 inch since I am small and facing good pitching, or stick with my 32 inch?

If you are seeing good plate coverage and swing speed with the 32 inch, I would stick with that. Working out and taking swings with the lager bat can help train your muscles to allow for a faster swing speed over time and the heavier the bat you use the more power you can get if you can swing it well.

I'm a contact hitter with power. Which bat would suit me best, the MAKO, S1 or the XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) would be ideal for a contact hitter with power. It will not only have the extended barrel length, but also a very light swing weight as well.

Brandon Expert ·Aug 06, 2014

Which bat is more balanced: the Easton MAKO or S1?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S1) would be similarly balanced. The Mako would feature a more extended barrel though similar to the XL1.

Patrick Expert ·Aug 05, 2014

I am 6' 2" and 211 lbs. What size bat should I get?

The best recommended size in the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) for you would be a 33" 30 oz. or a 34" 31 oz.

How long does it take to break in the MAKO?

We recommend around 150 swings off the tee or soft toss to fully break-in the composite fibers of the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK).

My son is 15, 5'10" and weighs 210 pounds. What kind of bat should he use? Would the Easton MAKO be a good choice?

The best type of bat to use is a bat that compliments his hitting style. If he is more of a power hitter, an end loaded model would be a great option to take advantage of his strength and bat speed. If he is more of a contact hitter, a balanced bat is a great option to work on bat speed and bat control. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) features a balanced swing weight and an extended barrel (which is normally only seen in end loaded models), so it is the best of both worlds for power and contact hitting. The MAKO would be a great option for your son to check out.

I am 13 and I am debating on what I should get between a Rawlings Trio or Easton Mako. Which has more pop and what bat would you recommend?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBTRIO) would be rated the same in terms of maximum performance or "pop" they can achieve because they are both rated under the BBCOR standard. Given your age, if you are just starting out with a BBCOR bat I would lean more towards the MAKO because it is a little bit better balanced than the TRIO but both would be great choices.

Patrick Expert ·Jul 25, 2014

Is the weight just at the barrel of the bat or is it distributed equally?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK) has a weight distribution that is evenly balanced throughout the bat.

Sean Expert ·Jul 24, 2014

95401

Is this bat similar to the Easton S1 and is this bat good for contact hitters?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK) will use the same materials as the Easton S1 but will have a larger barrel with more hitting surface and added sweet spot. The MAKO would be great for a contact hitter.

I'm 5'6" 130 lbs. What size MAKO would you recommend me use?

I'm a 5'9", 140 lbs and I'm looking for a new bat. Would the DeMarini CF6 or Easton MAKO be right for me?

Both models have been very popular, and are going to be top of the line in performance. They will also have a similar two-piece composite structure, and balanced weight distribution. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14MK) is known for being very light weight, and having a great sweet spot. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (DXCFC) will incorporate D-Fusion Handle Technology, and this helps eliminate vibration and also helps to extend the sweet spot. Ultimately, it will come down to your personal preference. If you are a contact-hitter, both models will fit your game extremely well.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 20, 2014

Does the Mako have a lighter swing speed than the S4? Does it have a similar barrel to the XL1? If so, which one has more pop?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) will have a similar balance and swing speed to the S4 but will have similar barrel dimensions to the XL1. All three bats will be BBCOR certified so they will all have similar maximum performance. The feel of the bat would make the difference for what you see performance wise as a player. If you perform better with an end-loaded model I would go with the XL1 but if you like a balanced bat you should go with the MAKO.

Patrick Expert ·Jul 18, 2014

How many swings does it take to break in the MAKO?

Generally, for any composite bat we recommend around 125-150 swings, rotating the barrel a quarter of an inch after each swing. The composite material will start out pretty slow on the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14MK), however, once it is broken in, the performance will continually increase.

I am 6' and 155 lbs. Which size would work the best, a 32" or a 33"?

Based on your approximate height and weight, I would suggest 33" in the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14MK).

Merritt Expert ·Jul 17, 2014

94905

What is the difference between this and the XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) is constructed with Easton's newest TCT composite. It has an extended barrel and one of the lightest swing weights on the market. The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is constructed with Easton's IMX composite. It also has an extended barrel but it has an end loaded swing weight.

John H Expert ·Jul 17, 2014

I'm 6'1", 175 pounds, and the 33" MAKO seems a bit light. Would I be ok switching to the 34" version?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend using a 33" 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK). Sizing is a matter of preference, so if the 33" feels too light, jumping to a 34" is definitely something to take into consideration. Generally, you want to swing the heaviest bat that you can comfortably and consistently control, so if you are able to handle a 31 oz., going with a 34" would be a great choice.

Tessa Expert ·Jul 15, 2014

Is BBCOR always a minus 3?

Yes, all BBCOR bats like the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) have a -3 length to weight ratio.

I am interested to know what the bat requirements are for Middle School baseball.

Unfortunately, bat rules can vary across the country regarding Middle School baseball. Some leagues will require the use of a BBCOR certified bat like this 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) while others will allow the use of a -5 Senior League model. To be absolutely certain what design you need, I would definitely recommend asking a coach or school official.

Mac Expert ·Jul 15, 2014

What is the difference between Easton's IMX Composite Barrel, SIC Black Carbon Composite Handle, and their TCT Composite on the MAKO? Is there any advantage to one or the other?

The IMX Composite material has been used in many of Easton's models for a few years. You'll find that material exclusively in the barrel, and the blend is designed to provide maximum trampoline effect. Since the 2013 product line, baseball models like the S1 and XL1 have featured the upgraded SIC Black Carbon Composite in their handles only. This material provides a stiffer flex which transfers energy more efficiently to the ball on contact while eliminating vibration. With the 2014 MAKO, the TCT Composite material allows that bat to offer both a large sweet spot while maintaining a very balanced swing weight.

Would the Easton MAKO or the Rawlings Trio have a better pop? And which bat would be an overall better bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) would be a very high performing bat. The extended barrel design is a great feature for such a balanced bat.

Is the sweet spot on the MAKO bigger or smaller than the BBCOR CF6?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult has a longer barrel for a bigger sweet spot. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR (DXCFC) also features the new D-fusion technology which is supposed to transfer energy back to the barrel for a large sweet spot as well. Both are high performance models and would be great choices to go with.

Tessa Expert ·Jul 01, 2014

93345

Which bat has a bigger sweet spot and which bat's pop lasts longer: this or the new 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR?

The sweet spot and performance life of both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR (BB14X1) are going to be very similar. The XL1 has a slightly longer barrel, so its sweet spot may be slightly larger than that of the MAKO.

I am 13 years old and I am playing Babe Ruth and school ball. Is this bat too much for me to swing? Or is it something I can use longer in the future?

BBCOR bats like the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) would be heavier than any Senior League model you may have previously used and would be an adjustment that would take work. However, once you reach high school level, BBCOR bats will be the requirement so it may be beneficial to get started adjusting to the weight.

I was wondering if this bat is a fully composite or half and half split? My son is 13, 6' tall and 175 lbs. Would you recommend this bat or an XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) has a two-piece fully composite design. The XL1 has an end loaded swing weight and is typically better for power hitters. The balanced swing weight on the MAKO is typically better for contact hitters. Based on his height and weight, we suggest 33" model.

Is the Easton S1 BBCOR just as heavy as the Mako? I'm a smaller player and don't have much strength and I need a light bat with good pop to get it far. Do you think the Mako would work?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) is slightly better balanced than the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR so it would be a bit lighter swing weight but not by much. Both would be considered some of the most balanced BBCOR bats on the market.

90526

My son is 5' 4" and 107 pounds. What size BBCOR bat is good for him? Should he get an S1 or S4?

For a player that size we would typically suggest a 29" model of the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK). As far as picking between the Easton S1 and Easton S4, it ultimately comes down to preference. The 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) is a two-piece fully composite with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter whereas the 2014 Easton S4 BBCOR (BB14S4) is a one-piece alloy bat with a 2 1/2" barrel diameter.

I am 5 foot 9 and weigh about 170 pounds. I hit well to all sides of the field and have good bat speed. What bat would be best for my build? The Easton Mako or Easton S1?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) would be good choices for a player of your ability. They will be similar in design and balance but the MAKO features a slightly longer barrel for a more extended sweet spot and it features an enhanced connection point between the barrel and the handle. This connection point better protects against sting and vibration. Those two features are what set the two bats apart.

I love hitting opposite field. Should I get the Velo or the Mako?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK) and the 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR (BBV3) would be great balanced options that would be good to go opposite field with. The preference would come down to whether you want flex in the swing like in the MAKO or a stiffer feel like in the VELO. Also, the preference between alloy or composite barrel would be important o keep in mind.

I am 5'5" and 125 lbs. I like a balanced bat. Should I get the MAKO or the S1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) are both very balanced bats. They are very high performing and durable. The main difference is the MAKO has a slightly longer barrel.

I am 5'6 140 and love the end loaded feel of the old Easton Rivals. Which bat is for me: the XL or Mako?

Our Bat Coach recommends a 32" length in the 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK) based on your height and weight. If you want an end loaded feel I would suggest you to for a bat in Easton's XL series. The XL series features an end loaded swing weight whereas the Easton MAKO (BB14MK) will be a balanced swing weight feel.

i am 5'6 140 and love the endloaded feel of the old easton rivals what bat is for me the xl or mako?

If you prefer the feel of an end loaded bat I would recommend the XL1 as the 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK) is balanced.

Bobby Expert ·May 07, 2014

What would be better the MAKO or the XL1? I am a power hitter.

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR (BB14X1) would be great choices for a power hitter. The major difference would be that many power hitters prefer a more end-loaded design like the XL1.

Is the barrel on this longer than the CF6 and the Air Elite?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) will have a longer barrel than both the CF6 and the Air Elite.

I am 5'6" 130 lbs and I am a contact hitter. Which bat would be better for me, the Rawlings VELO or The Easton MAKO?

The two-piece design on the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) would help give you some added bat speed and the high end composite will increase your overall performance.

Justin R. Expert ·May 04, 2014

I am 5'6 130 pounds. I own a Easton S1 2012 model and I am looking for a new bat. I was thinking about getting the MAKO but reviews say it doesn't have the best pop. Which bat should I settle for the Easton S1 or the Easton MAKO?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) will have similar pop because they both have to meet the .50 BPF BBCOR standard. The S1 and the MAKO are very similar in that they are two-piece composites and have a balanced swing weight. The main difference between the two is that the MAKO has an extended barrel design, which is normally seen in end loaded bats. The choice definitely up to you and if you prefer an extended barrel design or not.

I am 5'11 180 not super strong, but I am a power hitter. What Easton bat should I get?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) would be a great bat. Also the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) and the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR (BB14X1) this bat here will be more end loaded more for a power hitter. The rest of these bats are very balanced.

I'm a line drive contact hitter with some occasional power. Which bat should I get? The Easton MAKO or the Easton S1? Also, what size? I'm 5'7" and 170 pounds.

Based on your approximate height and weight the size we would recommend would be 32 inches. As a contact player with some occasional power, I would probably recommend taking a closer look at the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR: (BB14S1). This model will provide you with some good flex as a contact player, will also be able to provide you with some substantial power as well.

Merritt Expert ·Apr 30, 2014

I am 5'6" 140 lbs. What size would you recommend for me?

I'm debating between this and the XL1. I hit for both contact and power. I'm not sure to get this or the XL1. I need a little more speed behind my swing but I also want power and a lot of pop. Which would you recommend? I'm 5'6" and 130 lbs.

Both bats would be a great choice for you. If you prefer a balanced feel the 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK) would be the better choice for you. But if like an end loaded swing weight the XL1 is the way to go.

Bobby Expert ·Apr 28, 2014

I'm 5' 3" and 100 pounds. What size is good for me?

Based on your height and weight, a 29" or 30" BBCOR would be the recommended length. But the smallest size the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) is produced in is the 31" length. If you could try out a 31" MAKO that a friend, teammate, or Easton Demo House (http://www.easton.com/baseball/dealer-locator/) had available, that would give you the best insight into what size you would be most comfortable with.

88358

Which bat is better the Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) or the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR (DXCFC)?

Both are great balanced bats. The Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) will have a longer barrel which extends the sweet spot and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR (DXCFC) has new technology called the d-fusion handle which also extends the sweet spot in the barrel.

I am 13 years old and only about 88 pounds I am a big contact hitter, I can't hit for power so which would be better for me the 2014 Easton S1 or the 2014 Easton Mako I use a 31/28?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) would both be great bats for a contact hitter. You will get a quicker swing speed with the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1), but you cant go wrong with either one.

Kyle Expert ·Apr 17, 2014

88121

I'm 14 years old and 6 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds. What bat size would be good for me?

Bobby Expert ·Apr 16, 2014

87793

I am debating between this and a XL1. I am more of a contact hitter but can still hit for power? Is this the bat for me?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK would be a great bat for someone with your hitting style. The MAKO has a very balanced swing weight for optimal bat speed which is preferred by contact hitters, but it still retains the extended barrel and large sweet spot of the XL1.

My son is 120lbs and 5-7. He is a 14 year old 8th grader. We are looking to get a bat that is appropriate for him now and possibly next year as a HS freshman. What do you recommend?

If you are looking to get a bat he can use in high school play than a BBCOR certified bat will be required. All of these bats have a -3 length-to-weight ratio. Some of our more popular BBCOR models are the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR: DXVXC, and are two very quality bats that are reasonably priced as well.

Kyle J. Expert ·Apr 09, 2014

Does the MAKO allow you to have bat speed or is it just powerful?

Due to the new 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR's (BB14MK) incredible balance, the MAKO will help the player increase bat speed. The increased bat speed and high quality performance will help enhance your power output.

My grandson is at the end of his freshman year in high school, he is currently 5-9 155lbs, but growing. Should we stay with a 33" 30 oz. since he is still growing or move down to a 32" 29 oz. to help enhance better bat speed? He likes the swing of the 32" 29 oz. he is swinging right now.

Based on the fact he is liking the 32" 29 oz now, I would recommend getting that. That should last him several years, especially with the high quality composite found on the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK).

What's the coldest temperature the MAKO can be used in?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult, in temperatures below 55°F (13°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

Mac Expert ·Mar 25, 2014

What are the differences between the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR or the 2014 DeMarini CF6?




or  Cancel
Answer Question

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR (DXCFC) will be similar in that they are both two-piece fully composite designs with enhanced connection pieces to help reduce sting and vibration. The differences would be that the Mako has a slightly longer barrel for a larger sweet spot and the CF6 is slightly more balanced.

Patrick Expert ·Mar 23, 2014

86233

Which has more pop: the MAKO or RIP-IT Air Elite?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (B14MK) Adult and the RIP-IT Air Elite will have similar pop. The MAKO is a two-piece fully composite bat and will require a break-in period. The RIP-IT Air Elite has a two-piece hybrid design, and because of the alloy barrel, it will be hot out of the wrapper.

Jason Expert ·Mar 22, 2014

86229

Which allows you to have a faster swing the RIP-IT Air Elite or the Mako? And which would you recommend?

When comparing the Easton Mako (BB14MK) to the RIP-IT Air Elite (B1403E) both will be very close but since the Easton Mako (BB14MK) will give you more bat speed because it is a two-piece composite compared to the two-piece hybrid design with the RIP-IT Air Elite (B1403E). Both are great bats and very high performing it comes down to the person's taste between material used to construct each bat.

Does this bat need a break in period?

Since this bat is a two-piece composite, we do suggest a break in period. Taking a 100 - 200 hits off a tee or soft-toss. Start at about 40% power and gradually increasing power as you get closer to 150 swings. While rotating the bat a quarter of an inch between each hit to ensure an even break-in.

Is the Easton MAKO and Easton S1 have the same balanced weight for faster bat speed? Or does the MAKO have a faster bat speed?

The new TCT Thermo Composite Technology in the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult bat allows it to have a larger sweet spot than the S1 but also a lighter swing weight. The MAKO is the most balanced bat in Easton's current product line and should let you achieve higher swing speeds than the S1.

Does the easton mako or the demarini cf6 have more pop

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult are both going to be hybrid designs and will produce a lot of power and pop. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult uses TCT thermo composite material and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult will be composed of paradox composite fibers. This technology will be the only difference and is pure personal preference. Both of these bats are top of the line, and will generate momentum with very little sting to the hands. These are both going to produce a lot of pop.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult would be a good bat for you to invest in if you plan on playing in any leagues that you will have to use a BBCOR bat. By going up 2 oz there will be a slight weight difference. If you have swung 28 oz bats and are comfortable with those then I would definitely suggest this bat.

The MAKO is a very well balanced model which generally the contact hitters prefer while still having a massive sweet spot for the power hitters.

Will it be ok to hit off a pitching machine that throws real baseball to break in? Why not the balls wit the holes in them?

We would recommend around 150 swings off the tee or soft toss with the 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK). If using your Easton MAKO in the cage we would recommend using regular baseballs. The yellow dimpled balls are going to be heavier than the regular baseball which would cause more stress on the bat.

Would the easton mako, rip it air elite, easton s1, or marucci elite have the biggest sweet spot.

I am a 150 pound 5'3" 13 year old and I have been looking at the Easton Mako and the demarini overlord I occasionally hit a home run and a triple here and there but this year I struggled with getting the ball in the air. I'm looking for a bat with a large sweet spot and will be able to nock balls out of the 350' fence. What size and bat should I get.

We would recommend a 31" model for a player with your height and weight. Both models are great BBCOR models. I would go with the MAKO model because it has a balanced swing weight. The DeMarini Overlord a slight end loaded swing weight.

John Expert ·Dec 31, 2013

As far as performance has this bat lived up to all of the hype? I know the swing weights are different, but performance wise how is this compared to the new voodoo overlord? I like the Ping of the voodoo, and the balance of Easton's and rip it's. I've owned all 3 in the past.

The 2014 Easton MAKO has been very popular with excellent reviews. It does not have the same ping sound as the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord because it is a full composite. The MAKO and the Voodoo Overlord are going to be two very popular models for 2014. Deciding between these two will be a preference of a balanced swing weight of the MAKO or the slightly end loaded swing weight of the Voodoo Overlord.

I am a freshman in highschool. I am 14, 5'6 and 130 lbs. My last bat was the 2012 easton s3 bbcor. I am looking for a new 32 inch bat. I am both a power and contact hitter. I am now trying to decyde whether i should get the new 2014 easton s3 bbcor or the Mako. Please give some advice.

Between those two bats, the Mako is going to be the better performer as well as more durable. Being fully constructed of composite material, the Mako will deliver more pop with every swing. The only thing the S3 would have over the Mako is that the S3 can be used in the colder temperatures. The Mako shouldn't be used in temperatures any cooler than 55 degrees.

Based on your size and weight, we recommend a 31" size bat. The Easton XL1 features an extra long barrel and is end loaded with power hitting in mind. The Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK is a combination of the Easton BBCOR S1 and XL1, so it features the speed and balance of the S1 and the extended barrel of the XL1. It is truly the best of both worlds, so if you are both a contact and power hitter, this would be a great option for you.

In all honesty, would you recommend the MAKO or CF6?

Both the Easton MAKO and the CF6 will be balanced and light weight. The biggest difference between the two is that the CF6 features a D-Fusion handle to help eliminate vibration. This also causes it to feel more like a one-piece bat.

Do composite bats "run out of pop"? If so after how many hits?

Any composite bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult, can lose its pop over time. The more the bat is used, the quicker the bat could lose its pop. Using a wood bat or a bat you don't use in a game can increase the lifespan of the bat. There is no exact number of hits that a bat could take and lose its pop, it would be completely dependent upon many variables including usage and weather temperature.

I am 6 foot and 150 lbs. I was wondering what size I should get? I am a power and contact hitter. I am trying to decide between this and the CF6.

Both will also be very balanced and feature a lighter swing weight. The CF6 will feel slightly stiffer than the MAKO because it has the D-Fusion handle to help eliminate vibration.

I swing a 32" 29 The mako /overlord / voodoo paradox/ or the cf6

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the DeMarini CF6 are both balanced two-piece bats. They are designed for a contact hitter. The DeMarini Voodoo and the DeMarini Overlord are both end loaded bats, best for a power hitter.

Which bat has a larger sweet spot? The MAKO, Overlord, or the CF6? Also, which of these bats would have the most pop.

Honestly, all three bats will have some of the best pop and performance available on the market today. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and Voodoo Overlord will feature a longer, more extended barrel design. This can help with the sweet spot size. The CF6 will have a normal sized barrel design and be very balanced in swing weight.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult is a two-piece fully composite bat with an extended barrel. The 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR: BBTRIO Adult is three-piece bat that has a composite handle, alloy barrel and composite end cap. Both bats are very balanced and designed for a contact hitter.

Based on your height and weight, our Bat Coach tool recommends a 30" model. However, the 31" size is the smallest that the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult is produced in. The balanced swing weight of the MAKO should help make the 31" feel lighter than other options.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult bat would be a great option. It will have a balanced swing weight and an extended barrel design. I do see more true power guys loving the Easton XL1. It will have a barrel heavy end load to help with the powerful feel.

Is it true that the MAKO has a limited number of hits?

All bats, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult, have a useful life and will eventually decline in performance. The composite barrel of this MAKO should perform at a high level for a longer period of time than an alloy model, but it is difficult to accurately estimate the life of a bat.

If you already have to use BBCOR at 12 years old, I would definitely recommend the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult because of its very balanced swing weight.

What would be the best bat for a first year BBCOR user. I am 5' 7" and 120 lbs. I'm a contact hitter with some power. I swung a 31" 26 oz. XL1 last year and did well with it.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult bat would be a great choice for a first time BBCOR user. You'd get the extended barrel design along with a very balanced swing weight.

Brandon Expert ·Nov 16, 2013

77670

I am 5'9'' and 180 pounds. I can't decide between the MAKO and the CF6. They both look so nice, but I need some help.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the DeMarini CF6 are going to be very comparable. The CF6 features a D-Fusion handles which breaks up vibration to the handle to reduce sting. However, this D-Fusion handle is going to cause it to feel slightly stiffer than the MAKO.

Tori Expert ·Nov 12, 2013

77569

Last year I used the 2013 model of the cf5 as a BBCOR. I did very well with it. I am 5'4 120 pounds and a contact hitter with some power. I bat lead off. Should I use the mako or the cf6?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult are going to be very comparable bats. They are both balanced, two-piece fully composite bats. It will come down to preference in manufacturer and what you have had success with in the past.

Jason Expert ·Nov 10, 2013

77545

Would this bat suit me more than the DeMarini Vexxum 2014? I am a line drive contact hitter with some power.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult would be a great option for you. Like the DeMarini Vexxum NVS, the MAKO is very balanced. The main difference is the MAKO will have an extended sweet spot and is fully composite in design.

77478

I'm 13, and am 5'8'' and 124 lbs. I'm a clean up batter and I think I'm ready for a BBCOR bat. What would be a better bat for me? A CF6 or a MAKO?

Any first time BBCOR bat user would be very lucky to have either bat. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult will have an extended barrel design and a very light swing weight. The new 2014 DeMarini CF6 will also feel very light and balanced. It will feature DeMarini's new D-Fusion handle to eliminate almost all vibration upon contact.

77393

I'm 6'1 and around 210 at age 14, I'm a big power hitter, and I need a good power bat. Is the MAKO a better bat for a contact hitter or a power hitter?

The Easton MAKO is a great option for both a contact hitter and a power hitter. The MAKO is a very well balanced model which generally the contact hitters prefer while still having a massive sweet spot for the power hitters. Some power hitters prefer to have a more end loaded swing weight, which if that is the case with you then the Easton XL series would be a good option.

I am 5'4" and around 110 lbs. I need to use a BBCOR -3 this coming year. I am a lead off hitter (singles,doubles) that occasionally hits with power. Is the new Easton Mako a good choice? Does it come in a 30''?

The smallest length the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult is available in is a 31''. It is going to have a light swing weight for increased speeds. The two-piece composite will be a good choice for a contact hitter.

Tori Expert ·Nov 06, 2013

77189

I'm 5'8" 185 lbs. I'm not a power hitter but I hit a lot of line drives. I like alloy, but I liked my S1 last year. So I could go either way. Should I get the Mako, S1 or S3?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult bat is a two-piece fully composite design like the Easton S1. If you were successful with that model, I would recommend staying with the same type of model.

Aubrey Expert ·Nov 06, 2013

77063

I'm 5'8", 136 lbs, and 14 year old. Should I get a 2014 S1, Xl1, or MAKO?

The Easton MAKO is going to have the lightest swing weight of the three. The Easton S1 will also be a balanced choice. The Easton XL1 is end loaded and is better suited for power hitters.

Tori Expert ·Nov 05, 2013

Can a special 33.5'' be ordered?

77029

My son 5'4'', 95lbs, and just transitioning to BBCOR. Would the S1, S2, or the Mako be better? He is a fast swing type hitter.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult will be the lightest swing weight of the three. If he is transitioning from a heavier bat, this may be the best choice. If he is used to a heavier bat, but still wants a balanced bat, the S1 would be a good choice.

77024

Would you recommend the MAKO or the CF6?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult are going to be very comparable bats. The MAKO will have a bigger sweet spot than the CF6, but the CF6 has the D-Fusion handle technology to eliminate vibration and extend its sweet spot more than previous models.

Jason Expert ·Nov 05, 2013

I have been using the COMbat Portent, which is one-piece. Will I get more pop with a two-piece bat like the MAKO, or is it about the same?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR and the 2014 COMBAT Portent will feature top of the line composite materials. Therefore, you will not see a major difference in the pop. The main difference will be in the swing. With the one-piece bat, the swing will be a little more stiff. The two-piece will give you a little more flex during the swing.

Justin R. Expert ·Oct 28, 2013

75376

Would this bat be good for a power hitter that hits more for average?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult bat would be great for a power guy or a contact guy. The extended barrel and light swing weight of this bat will help you hit for high averages and more power.

I sometimes have trouble getting the bat through the zone quick enough. Which bat would you think would benefit me the most? When is the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord coming in?

The DeMarini Voodoo Overlord will be in around January 1, 2014. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult would be my pick for you. It will have a slightly lighter swing weight and feel more balanced compared to the Overlord.

My son is 13yrs old and really wants this bat! He swings a 32/29 S1 at the cages with no problem & loves it. Would this bat be similar to the S1, only with more pop?

Yes, the MAKO is a blend between the S1 and the XL1. It will have the balanced design of the S1 while having the massive sweet spot of the XL1. The MAKO is a great option for the elite player.

Will it be necessary to have this bat rolled or is it already broken in when it arrives?

The Easton MAKO will require a break-in period. However, we do not recommend rolling the bats because that will void the warranty with Easton. We recommend taking 150 swings off the tee while making sure you rotate the barrel of the bat a quarter of an inch every 15 swings.
