Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL14MKB

I was considering this bat or one of the Easton S series bats. What would you suggest for 8U machine pitch?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) and the S Series bats are all great bats to consider. All three S Series bats and the MAKO have balanced swing weights. Any of these bats would work for your player, but the MAKO is considered Easton's top of the line bat.

My son is 11 and has the small barrel and the -10 big barrel MAKO. His small barrel bat seems to have much more pop than the big barrel. I was hoping that it was a break-in problem. We have been using it for quite a while now and the ball still does not jump off the bat as good as the other.

The break-in period is typically only 200-300 swings off of a batting tee or soft toss on the 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB). If you think the bat may be defective you can call Easton at 1-888-259-1297. They can walk you through the replacement process.

My son is 7 years old and about 53 pounds. He has an Easton S300 27 inch 15 ounce. Would this be a good bat for him? We are looking at the 27 inch 17 ounce. Is this the correct size I should get or do you think adding the extra 2 ounces would be too heavy compared to what he is used to? Also, is this approved for Little League play?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) is not approved for play in the Little League organization because it features a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter and it is big barrel bat that has a composite barrel and is not BBCOR certified. As far as sizing, two ounces is a jump but one that can be handled with hard work to get adjusted. The player will need to work with the bat to get used to the added weight. I cannot speculate if that size would work based on age and weight alone. Height and weight would be the more appropriate factors to consider when sizing the player.

My son is 8 years old. He weighs 52 pounds and is 4 feet tall. What size bat does he need? He has good bat speed.

I am 12 years old. I am 5'0" and 90 lbs. What should I get?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) would be a great choice. The size may be slightly light for your age. I may start thinking of -8 or -5 bats at your age to get you ready for the high school -3 BBCOR bats. The -8, 2015 Easton MAKO TORQ Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK8T) would be an ideal option at age 12.

I'm 11, 90 lbs. and wondering what I should get? I play 11U travel ball.

The 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) would be an exceptional choice for travel ball use. The big barrel and composite design will be very high performing. A 30"-31" should be the best recommended sizing for you.

My son is 9 years old. He is 4'6" and weighs around 90 lbs. He swings a 29/19 XL1 very well and I'm looking to purchase a MAKO big barrel. I cannot decide what size is best for him. My thought would be to buy the 29" because it is the same length and weight as he is used to. What is your recommendation?

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB). Moving up an extra inch and an extra ounce will be an easy transition from the Youth XL1.

My 8 year old son is 4'6'' and weighs 71.5 lbs. Currently swings a 29" 17 oz., but used a teammates big barrel 28" 18 oz. and crushed it towards the end of the summer season. What size bat in the MAKO would you recommend?

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 29" 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB). A longer bat will give you more reach across the plate, however, sizing is preferential. So if he would feel more comfortable with a 28", that is definitely something to take into consideration.

Is this bat approved for 12 year olds?

Unfortunately, whether a bat is legal or not is also dependent on the particular league they are in as well as their age. This 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) is not approved in any division of Little League, Dixie, Pony, or Babe Ruth baseball because of the 2 3/4" barrel diameter. If the player is in a USSSA sanctioned league, you shouldn't have an issue. But concerning bat legality, it's best to check with a coach or league director.

Given the variations in rules from league to league, it is tough to say whether or not the 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) would be legal for play in your league. It has a composite barrel which some leagues restrict and it has the bigger barrel diameter of 2 3/4 inches which is also more restricted.

Which bat will feel lighter the Mako or CF6?

Both the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFX) and the 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) will be very well balanced so they will have roughly the same swing weight feel.

My son is having trouble with hitting. Will this bat help him hit better?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) is one of our most popular high performing bats. While no bat will instantly make a player a better hitter, the light, balanced swing weight and the enhanced sting and vibration protection featured in the MAKO can help a player develope better confidence at the plate which can lead to better hitting overall.

My son is 8 and currently swings a 28" 15oz Demarini VooDoo Overlord for little league play. He is about to try out for some USSSA travel teams and I was wanting to get him a big barrel bat. I was looking at this but I'm not sure what size to get him since the VooDoo is end loaded and this bat is balanced. I was thinking of the 27" 17oz, but would that be too light? He swings the VooDoo well but is more of a contact hitter.

What is his height and weight?

I'm a contact hitter. Should I get the MAKO or CF6?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MKB) and the DeMarini CF6 will feature a two-piece fully composite design. They will be very balanced and produce quick bat speed through the zone. The main difference is that the MAKO features an extended barrel design. The CF6 has the D-Fusion handle technology, which will help to dampen vibration and sting as well as extends the sweet spot through the barrel. Both are great bats for contact hitting, it will truly depend on your preferences.

Do you think this would be a good transition bat to BBCOR from an Easton XL3 -5?

Since the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) has a -10 length to weight ratio, I would say that the -5 XL3 would be a better bat to transition to a -3 BBCOR bat with.

Marcus Expert ·Jun 06, 2014

Do the -10 bigger barrel Mako bats have a longer barrel than the -9 Mako, or are they the same length?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) and the smaller barrel 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) would have the same length of barrel if they are the same length on the bat. The main difference is the length to weight ratio and the barrel diameter.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 05, 2014

What are the advantages or disadvantages of using a Mako 2 3/4 vs. 2 5/8 inch barrel? Does the fatter barrel help?

The use of the larger barrel 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) over the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) would just allow for more room for error. If you use the larger barrel you can miss a bit more and still may be able to salvage a hit. The trade off is that the 2 3/4 is less allowed in some leagues. Many leagues will have barrel size restrictions that will not allow the use of a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter bat.

Is there a difference between this MAKO and the Youth MAKO?

The (YB14MK) would feature the smaller 2 1/4" barrel diameter and is an ounce lighter than this (SL14MKB); in the same length. This 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) Senior League bat provides a more forgiving hitting surface as it has the largest barrel diameter available (2 3/4"). Many leagues do not permit the use of a 2 3/4" barrel diameter, so I'm not certain what your particular league requires.

Mac Expert ·May 27, 2014

Will I be able to use the Easton MAKO in Little League?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) bat would be the model that is legal for use in Little League. The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB Senior League) will not be legal due to its larger barrel diameter.

What is better: the Easton S1 or the Easton MAKO?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) and Easton S1 have the same performance certification, so they will not outperform each other in testing. However, the MAKO is more forgiving with the extended sweet spot, but both models have balanced swing weight for better bat speed and control.

Is this bat legal for 13-15 Babe Ruth? (BBCOR .50)

This 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) Senior League bat is not approved for any division of Babe Ruth baseball because it has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. In order to use any bat with a composite barrel in Babe Ruth, the barrel cannot exceed 2 5/8" and it must be a BBCOR certified model. But BBCOR models only feature -3 length to weight ratios which is quite a bit heavier than the -10 length to weight ratio this bat offers.

With so many new bats being at the $200.00 price range, what are you getting with the MAKO that you don't with these bats? Is the player going to drive the ball 20' further with a similarly struck swing? Will you hit more balls hard even when slightly off the barrel? What are you getting which would make you want to spend more?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB Senior League) will provide an upgraded composite material compared to lesser priced bats. It will provide an upgraded durability and swing weight. The MAKO is very balanced and has a light swing feel. The MAKO will also have a longer barrel length compared to other two-piece composite designs.

Rotating the barrel of the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) Senior League bat will help extend the lifespan of the bat by dispersing the number of hits taken around the full barrel head. While not required, it would help improve the lifespan.

My 7 year old son is swinging a 27/17 Easton XL3. He is doing great with it. Would he benefit more from the 27/17 MAKO even though the XL3 is end loaded?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) is going to be very balanced and have a light swing weight. It will have a slightly shorter barrel than the XL3. If your son is having success with the XL3 going to the MAKO could cause him to lose some of his power since the MAKO is not end loaded.

My son is going to be turning 8. I am torn between this Easton bat, the 2014 COMBAT Portent: PORSL112 Senior League and the Marucci Elite: MSBE14 Senior League. What would you recommend? All reviews are pretty good.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB Senior League) would be a great choice. It will not only be very balanced and light weight in design but the extended barrel length is a great feature also. The Portent and Elite would be really great selections. They are both balanced and have a light weight feel. The Portent will feel the stiffest of the three, which is typically loved by power hitter's.

My son currently uses the S3 alloy bat. I believe he benefits from a fast bat. Is the MAKO the fastest swinging bat of all the Series Easton makes ie. S1,S2,S3? Just wondering if it was put into other series, which would it fall into?

All of the speed series and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) are all very balanced bats. The Easton MAKO will swing most like the Easton S1 since it it also a two-piece composite bat.

My son is 10 yrs. old 4'7 and weighs 76 lbs. What size bat do you recommend? Based on what I have read I'm thinking 29/20. Thanks for your help.

Based off of your son's height and weight, the recommended length is indeed a 29" bat. The weight varies based on what is he currently swinging and how well he is getting the bat through the zone. Keep in mind that as the player grows older, you will want to put him in a heavier bat each year as they get closer to the high school requirements of a -3 oz. bat.

How do you wash off marks from balls on the Easton Mako?

It is recommended to clean composite baseball bats with soapy water and a rag. It is important to use a bleach free soap. Any other products could cause damage to the composite materials.

Is it better to get a 2 3/4 diameter barrel or a 2 5/8 barrel if you can use both?

In general if you are able to use the bigger barrel size and you feel the player benefits from that added size in their ability to square the ball up, that would be the better option. As the player progresses through the upper divisions of baseball, however, the 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter is the more widely accepted size. BBCOR certified bats that the player will need to use in high school and beyond are the 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter.

My 11 year old son is 5' 1" and weighs 105 lbs. He has good bat speed and power. Which MAKO Senior League model and size would you recommend?

Either the 2014 Easton MAKO: (SL14MKB) Senior League and (SL14MK9) would be great options for the majority of players. Even though the (SL14MK9) has a -9 length to weight ratio, it feels just as balanced as the -10 option. It really depends on what restrictions your league has to the barrel diameter when choosing between the two. Based on his height and weight, we would recommend a 31" model.

My son is currently using the combat B3 blue bat 30/20. He has a lot of power and quick hands. What is the power advantage between one & two piece composite design of the combat & the MAKO?

A one piece design like the COMbat will offer a stiffer feel that many power hitters prefer. A two piece design like the Easton MAKO provides more flex creating more of a whipping motion through the swing. Really, the desire for more flex versus a stiffer feel varies from player to player.

Can this bat be used in cool temperatures below 50 degrees?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO: (SL14MKB) Senior League, 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.

Deciding on this MAKO or the new Louisville Attack -10. My son is 12 yrs old, weighs 89 lbs, is about 5 ft tall. I'm sure either would be good for him but I'm more concerned about what one would be more durable. Looking at a 30" bat for him. He's not real big and feel he could benefit from more bat speed which makes me lean toward the MAKO. Any help or info is appreciated.

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO (SK14MKB) and the Louisville Attack are two piece composite bats that feature a balanced swing weight. They will be comparable in performance, however the MAKO does feature the TCT Thermo Composite material in the barrel, which makes for an incredible (if not the fastest) bat speed available on the market today.

My son is 10 years old, 52" tall and weighs 103 lbs (solidly built). Based on the chart it would suggest a 30/20 for him. I want to get specific advice on whether you agree with the recommendation. He is what I like to call a power hitter in training: Good bat speed, hand/eye coordination & good mechanics. But he is new to the game, is one of the better hitters on the team and often hits line drives opposite field just above 2nd base batting right.

Yes, a 30" 20 oz. 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League bat would work fine for him. The extended barrel length and balanced feel will definitely help him succeed as a hitter.

So,if your a power hitter and you just got the mako,will it break soon?

Although it is a composite design on the Mako, it will still come out of the wrapper with pop. Once you reach 150-200 hits off it though, it should be broken in. Just make sure to rotate the bat a quarter turn every 5 hits or so to assure the barrel receives equal swings for proper break-in.

80469

Does this bat have temperature restrictions when it can be used?

We recommend not using the 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League in temperatures below 55 degrees. The ball itself gets harder in colder temperatures and the bat will be more susceptible to cracking and denting on contact.

I am 5'4 105 pounds and am going into my 13U season. What size should I get in the -9 model?

My son is 8. He currently swings an XL3 Youth Big Barrel. I'm looking to purchase him a new bat. Which bat would you recommend, XL3, S3 or the Mako Youth Big Barrel? I don't know if he is strong enough to flex the composite bat. He currently swings a 27" 17 oz.

The 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League is the most balanced of the three options, which is great for contact hitters to increase swing speed, which will ultimately increase power. If he doesn't struggle with swing peed and is a power hitter, the XL3 is a great option.

Is this barrel the same type of composite as the S1 or is it the same material as the XL1? I know the barrel is the same size as XL1 but it sounds like the S1 when being hit.

The 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League uses new TCT Thermo composite that allows the bat to have an extended barrel and balanced swing weight. The Easton XL1 and the Eaton S1 uses the same IMX composite material. The Easton XL1 has a slightly longer barrel than the Easton MAKO.

My son used a youth XL1 last season. I need to get a composite senior league bat. I am nervous about getting this bat because it is so new (the Louisville Slugger Attack cracked on everyone I know). Do you anticipate any problems like that based on the material being used?

So far, the 2014 Easton MAKO Senior League bat has gotten great reviews on performance and durability. If you are looking for a high performing composite model, I would highly recommend the MAKO.

My son used a 32" 22 oz. Easton XL1 last year and he needs a Senior League bat this year. Would you recommend the 2014 MAKO or the 2014 Easton XL1?

2014 The Easton XL1 Senior League will be end loaded like the youth model and will come in a -8 and -5 drop. The 2014 Easton MAKO will have the extended barrel like the XL1 but will be more balanced like the Easton S1. It only comes in 2 3/4" barrel and -10. If he is more of a power hitter I would recommend an Easton XL1.

Is there a difference in performance between this bat and the Easton S1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League and S1 Senior League have the same performance certification, so they will not outperform each other in testing. However, the MAKO is more forgiving with the extended sweet spot, but both models have balanced swing weight for better bat speed and control.

Mac Expert ·Aug 21, 2013

My son used an XL1 28" 18 oz. last season. He needs to move to a Senior League bat this year. Would the MAKO 28" 18 oz. work or should he move to a 29" 19 oz.? He's 4'8 and about 87 pounds.

There are two new Easton bats that are drop 10, with 2 3/4 barrel (MAKO and the 2014 S3). Which bat would be better for an 8 almost 9 year old who weighs about 55 pounds?

If he is a contact hitter the two-piece design of the 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League is the best option. If he is a power hitter the 2014 Easton S3: SL14S310B Senior League is a better choice.

Would the Mako or the XL1 be a better bat for a 13 year old that is 5' 6.5" and 115 lbs.? What size would be recommended?

Both are great bats, but I would recommend the more balanced 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MKB Senior League bat in a 31" size.

Brandon Expert ·Aug 17, 2013

62605

How does this bat compare to the 2013 S1 big barrel bat?
