Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: YB14MK

What is the difference between the -11 and -10 MAKO?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) will be a -11. It will be a Youth bat and have the small 2 1/4" barrel diameter. The -10 MAKO will be a Senior League bat. Not only will it one oz. heavier, but it will feature a big barrel. The barrel diameter will be 2 5/8".

I am 5'7 and 160 pounds. Should I buy a MAKO?

Without knowing much about your hitting style, it is tough to recommend which bat would be best for you. The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) is a great choice for a player who can hit for both power and contact. It features a balanced swing weight, which is generally preferred by contact hitters. It also has an extended barrel, which is generally only seen in end loaded bats. If you are more of a power hitter, and are on the stronger side, I would recommend checking out an end loaded bat to see if those specs may better suite your hitting style. A great choice I would recommend would be the MAKO XL.

I would like to know the difference in the Easton MAKO and the S1. Which is better for a 10 year old that's 58" and 88 lbs?

Both of those bats would be great for a player at that age. The Easton S1 is a fully composite design. It will be very balanced. The MAKO is also a full composite design. It will be made of a different type of composite than the S1. The barrel length will be extended compared to the S1 and will be just as balanced. Either bat would be a great choice!

What is the difference between the MAKO and the XL3? Does one have more power?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) will be a two-piece, fully composite bat with a balanced swing weight. The Easton XL3 will be a one-piece alloy bat with an end loaded swing weight. The end loaded swing weight causes the bat to swing slightly heavier but can help produce slightly more power.

What size bat would you suggest for a 10 year old weighing 100 lbs and is 4'9"?

Based on his height and weigh, we recommend a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK).

Jason Expert ·Oct 15, 2014

Can you use this bat in cold weather below 60?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) 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.

What size should a 9 year old, 63 lb. kid be swinging? What bat will help him make the ball travel a little further: the MAKO or the COMBAT?

The best way to determine the correct bat size for a player is based on their height and weight. Typically, a 9 year old is swinging a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK). The Easton MAKO is not necessarily going to perform better than a COMBAT. They both have the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp and are capped under the same restrictions.

I am a contact hitter using a 31" drop 5 XL1 with good strength. I am 5'2" 90 lbs. To create more bat speed, should I switch to the MAKO?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) has a more balanced swing weight and lighter length to weight ratio. The combination of the -11 length to weight ratio and the balanced design are two things that can help a player increase their bat speed.

Jason Expert ·Sep 28, 2014

I am a 11 year old kid and 90 lbs. What bat should I use?

The best way to determine the correct bat size is by a players height and weight. 11 year old players are typically using a 30" bats. The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) is an excellent option for any player. The 2015 Easton MAKO is another solid option that is available in a 30".

We are looking at buying my son a new bat. He is 59 inches tall and weighs 91 lbs. Which size bat would work best for him? We are looking at a 31/20. Is that too big? Also, is the 2015 Easton MAKO a better bat than the 2014 Easton MAKO?

Based on his approximate height and weight, I would suggest 30". However, 31" can also work very well for him. This may allow him to use the bat a little bit longer as well, moving up a size. The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK) and the new 2015 model will have the same material, construction and technology. The biggest difference will simply be a difference in cosmetics (appearance and design).

Merritt Expert ·Sep 15, 2014

My son is 11 years old, is 5'2", and 90 lbs. He used a 29/17 bat last year, but we are looking to move up to a big barrel bat this coming year. He is a great contact-hitter and is looking for a bat to ease the transition to a big barrel. Would an Easton MAKO or S1 bat be a better option? I was thinking about the 29/19. Any advice?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK) might be an excellent model to take a look at because it will incorporate a large sweet spot and extended barrel. This model is perfect for contact-hitters and will make generating a fast bat swing very easy. It is also one of the most well balanced models. Overall, this model has also probably been one of our best sellers.

Merritt Expert ·Sep 10, 2014

I can't decide between the MAKO and the XL1 for my 10 year old (30/19). Any help would be appreciated.

The biggest difference between both models is essentially going to be the weight distribution. The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK) will be very balanced, and will be an ideal model for a contact-hitter. The 2014 Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14X1) will incorporate a slight end-load, and generally power hitters are going to prefer this type of weight distribution.

Merritt Expert ·Sep 08, 2014

what are the recommended height and weight for the Mako 30 and the 31. Also, what would be the approximate age?

There would be a wide range of heights and weights that could use those sizes of the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK). The sizing would be based less on age and more on size and what restrictions the league has on barrel diameter or material. Here is a link to our sizing guide: http://www.justbats.com/buying-guides/baseball-bats/youth/ The youth bat sizing chart is on the bottom of the page.

I am 11 years old. I weigh 126 pounds and I am 5 foot 2. I use a 30 inch bat and I want to go up to a 31 inch. Can I?

Based on your height and weight, a 31 inch bat would be a good fit for you. We do not have any 31 inch 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) left in inventory but in the new 2015 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB15MK) we have that size available.

My grandson is 10 years old, weighs 56 lbs, and is 4'4". He uses a 29" or 30" bat now. However, what size and weight should he be using? We are planing on buying him a 2015 junior Easton Torq. He wants a 31" but I know that's to big for him. I know he's still growing though.

Based on the player's approximate height and weight, I would probably suggest 29" in the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK). I think a 30" could also work well, but a 31" might be a little too big.

Merritt Expert ·Sep 01, 2014

The clear coating peeling off my son's 2014 MAKO. Should this be sent back to the manufacturer for replacement? Also, what does the actual end cap look like?

The issue with the clear coat on this 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) may be something that would fall under Easton's warranty, but they would unfortunately have the official word on that. You can reach them at: (888) 259-1297. Concerning the end cap, we do have a picture of it on the site: http://goo.gl/iluQQC. It would be the white piece at the end of the barrel.

Mac Expert ·Aug 24, 2014

97277

Is it a better bat than the 2015 Easton MAKO composite?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) will feature the same materials and swing feel of the new 2015 model. They will hit very much the same. One is not better than the other.

Brandon Expert ·Aug 24, 2014

Does this bat, or the 2015 model, need to be broken in? If so, what is the best method?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) and the 2015 Easton MAKO will perform best if they are broken in. The best way to break-in a bat is 100-150 swings off a tee while rotating the barrel. You want to work your bat speed up from about half speed up. For more break-in tips check out our video: http://www.justbats.com/blog/index.php/3789/breaking-in-your-composite-baseball-bat/

I heard that Babe Ruth was banning all composite bats like the MAKO in 2015, is there any truth to this?

I believe that leagues such as Babe Ruth and Cal Ripken had once discussed this possibility, however, at this time I have not heard anything concrete in regards to the complete removal of all composite bats. Therefore, I do not believe this will hold true, and bats such as the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK) will remain legal.

My son is turning 11, is 5 ft. and weighs 100 lbs. I'm tossed up on getting the MAKO or XL1. He has a nice swing and more of a contact hitter. Normally singles, doubles, and triple here and there. Lots of line drives. Would like to get a bat he will be able to use for a couple years.

If your son is more of a contact hitter, the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) may be the better option. The MAKO features a balanced swing weight, which is generally preferred by contact hitters. The MAKO also features an extended barrel design, which is normally only seen in end loaded bats (such as the XL1), so it is the best of both worlds for both contact and power hitting. Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" bat.

My son is turning 8 years old. He is 48 inches tall and weighs 53 pounds. His hitting coach is recommending that we upgrade his bat from the Easton S500 to the Easton MAKO in the 28 ounce size. Others have recommended the S1 or S3. What would you recommend?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK), 2014 Easton S1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14S1), and the 2014 Easton S3 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14S3) are all nice options that would have their individual advantages. The preference between the three would come down to what you are looking for. The S3 will be a stiffer design that will allow for more control over the bat head while swinging and will be alloy which will be hot out of the wrapper and priced lower than the other two. The S1 is a two-piece composite design that will flex more and provide a whipping motion with the bat that can help increase bat speed. The MAKO is similar in design to the S1 but has a more extended barrel for a larger sweet spot and an enhanced connection point between the barrel and the handle which will make it slightly more effective at reducing sting or vibration to the hands.

I'm a 10 years old little leaguer and I am 5ft tall and 80lbs I am a mid power hitter. I am looking for a bat that is powerful and has good pop. What bat do you recommend?

Based on results from our Bat Coach (http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/), we recommend a 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) for a player with your height and weight.

Why does Easton say that this bat is lighter than the Easton S1 even though the Mako is -11 and the S1 is -12?

The very low M.O.I on the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) gives it a very light swing weight that would give it a similar lightweight feel to the 2014 Easton S1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14S1).

Patrick Expert ·Aug 11, 2014

I bought this bat earlier this season & need to know if it can be used in 13-15 Babe Ruth since it is all composite. It says Babe Ruth approved under the description but this is what it says on the Babe Ruth Website. All aluminum/alloy barrel bats and all composite handle (only) aluminum/alloy barrels are allowed. Only composite barrel bats certified and marked BBCOR .50 will be allowed

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is approved for Babe Ruth play. Unfortunately, for the 13-15 division, the bats are required to have the larger 2 5/8" barrel which is larger than the barrel on this model. The Easton MAKO (YB14MK) would not be legal for play in the 13-15 division of Babe Ruth.

What is the differece bewteen the youth MAKO and fastpitch MAKO?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) is a baseball bat where as the Fastpitch model is a softball bat.

Was considering buying this bat for my son. He will be playing 50/70 this fall. Can you tell me if this bat meets the following requirement?: All composite barrel bats shall meet the Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution (BBCOR) performance standard, and such bats shall be so labeled with a silkscreen or other permanent certification mark. The certification mark shall be rectangular, a minimum of a half-inch on each side and located on the barrel of the bat in any contrasting color. Thanks

No, the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) will not feature the BBCOR stamp and certification you'll need. You will need this model: 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK).

Is it true that after 2 months the MAKO loses its pop a little?

We are not aware of any issues like that associated with the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) most of the feedback we have gotten has indicated that the MAKO is a very durable and high performing model.

My son is 5 foot 1 and weighs 150 pounds. Most of his hits go to the outfield. Should I get him the MAKO or the XL1? What size should I get? I am looking to help him overall with contact and power. He has been using a 30 inch 18 ounce bat.

Based on his height and weight, we would suggest a 32 inch bat for your player. If you are looking to increase bat speed, I would go with the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK). If you think that his bat speed is good where he is at and that he could handle a more end-loaded feel to the bat, the 2014 Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14X1) may be able to add more power to his game.

Can my daughter use this in ASA approved leagues?

The 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) is a Youth baseball bat, so it does not have the ASA certification stamp necessary that most leagues require for it to be considered legal for play. We recommend double checking with a coach or league official to be certain.

Tessa Expert ·Jul 14, 2014

I am 5 foot 5 and weigh 100 pounds. Should I get the Mako or the XL1? Also, what size should I buy?

Based on your height and weight, we would suggest a 31 inch bat. The preference between the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) and the 2014 Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14X1) would be based on whether you prefer a more balanced design like the MAKO or a more end-loaded feel like what the XL1 would be. Both bats are very nice options.

Patrick Expert ·Jul 14, 2014

My son is 5'1" and a thin 82 lbs. He's not the strongest kid but he has a lot of bat speed, and is a very good contact hitter. He loves the MAKO. What size would you recommend for the bat to last through the 2015 season? It will be around 18 months.

Based on the player's approximate height and weight, I would suggest 30". However, if you are wanting the bat to last a little bit longer, I would probably suggest increase the size to 31" or 32", so that he can increase his time using the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK).

Merritt Expert ·Jul 14, 2014

I am 4 foot 8 and weigh 80 pounds. I am not the best hitter. I am usually late with slow bat speed. What Easton do you recommend and what size and weight? I was looking at the Mako, XL1, or S1.

If you are needing to create more bat speed, I would stick with either the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK) or the 2014 Easton S1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14S1). Both of those bats will be more balanced than the 2014 Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14X1) which will make them easier to swing faster. Based on your height and weight, we would suggest a 29 inch bat.

Patrick Expert ·Jul 14, 2014

I'm 11 years old and the end-cap of my Easton XL1 came off in a tournament this weekend. I was hitting great and loved this bat. Should I replace it? Or move to a different bat? I'm 5'2" and 103 lbs. My XL1 was a 30/20.

The 2014 Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14X1) does come with a 12 month manufacturers warranty. Therefore, if the bat becomes defective within a year of the purchase date, you would be able to contact Easton and get a replacement. Therefore, if you liked this bat a lot, and are still under warranty, I would continue to use this model.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 14, 2014

I am 4'11" and 90 pounds. I am a power hitter, therefore, which bat is better for me? The Easton MAKO or XL1?

Based on your playing style, I would probably suggest the 2014 Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14X1). This model will incorporate a slight end-load, and typically, this characteristic is favored by bigger hitters. Therefore, I think the 2014 Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14X1) would work extremely well for your game.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 14, 2014

94643

I am 4'11" and weigh 90 lbs. What size bat should I get? What bat is good for me? I am a contact hitter.

Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB14MK). The MAKO features a two-piece balanced design and is ideal for contact hitters.

My son is 5'1" and 95 lbs. He's currently been using the XL3 but looking to switch to Mako since he's a little behind on his swing. Do you recommend the Mako or should he use a different bat like the S1?

Both the Easton MAKO Youth (YB14MK) and the Easton S1 Youth (YB14S1) are great options and will increase your sons bat speed, the main difference between the two is that the MAKO will have a longer barrel than the S1.

I've heard that after the Majors division in Little League, that you have to use a big barrel bat, is that true?

After the majors division in Little League, the legal requirement is to use a bat incorporating a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. Therefore, the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK) would not be legal.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 11, 2014

94319

Why is the 32 inch bat cheaper then the 31 inch baseball bat?

The 32" 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK) is cheaper due to supply and demand reasons. The 31" tends to be in higher demand, therefore, the price is slightly increased.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 09, 2014

94249

My son's bat is developing a lot of cracks on the barrel. Would this be covered under the 12 month warranty?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth (YB14MK) does feature a 12 month manufacturers warranty through Easton that would cover any types of cracks along the barrel.

John Expert ·Jul 08, 2014

Is the bat still good if the end cap comes off?

A damaged end-cap does have the potential to compromise the bat's performance. However, the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat: (YB14MK) does have a 12 month manufacturers warranty. A damaged end-cap is one of the defect qualifications. Therefore, you would be covered by Easton to get a replacement model if you choose to do so.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 03, 2014

93752

Is it true that the yellow dimple balls in batting cages can hurt composite bats?

Yes, using the yellow dimpled cage balls does have the possibility of harming the 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK). I would not recommend using these balls, because it can create durability problems in the future.

Easton S1 or MAKO?

The 2014 Easton S1: (YB14S1) and the 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK) are going to be very similar in the sense they are both balanced, two-piece composite designs. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) will incorporate a TCT Thermo Composite material that will create a bigger sweet spot. However, both models will be high performing, and will be top quality.

Easton S1 or Mako?

Both the Easton MAKO and S1 are two-piece composite bat designs. They will be very high performing and have a very light swing weight. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) is made of Easton's newer TCT Thermo composite. It will also have a longer barrel length.

What has more pop: the Easton MAKO or the Easton Omen?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is constructed with Easton's TCT composite and is higher in quality than the IMX composite used in the Easton Omen.

I play in the minor league and I got my MAKO about 4 months ago and the end-cap popped off today when i was hitting. Is there a warranty on the bat? If so what is it? Also, I'm a contact hitter with power. Do you think I should get an S1 or a DeMarini CF6? Which bat is better in performance?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK) does have a 12 month manufacturer's warranty on it. I would probably recommend going for the DeMarini CF6. The paradox composite material incorporated will definitely be able to give you some good power, and high performance.

Do you offer a 31" 19 oz. in this style?

Unfortunately, this 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth bat is not produced in the -12 length to weight ratio that would provide the 31" 19 oz. size. The S1 would be the Easton Youth model offered in that size: http://goo.gl/6ZGWwn.

Is the MAKO better than the XL1, 2, and 3?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth is the top of the line bat from Easton. However, the XL series tends to be better for power hitters and the MAKO tends to be better for contact hitters. The MAKO has an extremely balanced swing weight, which is ideal for contact hitters.

Jason Expert ·Jun 25, 2014

Are they all big barrels?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) has the smaller, 2 1/4" barrel. The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) is the 2 3/4" barrel and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) is the 2 5/8" barrel.

My son is using a COMBAT B1 29/18. He is looking for a new bat and is 9 years old. The coach is recommending a 28/18 size. Which bat would you recommend for my son?

The 2014 COMBAT Wanted (WANYB110 Youth) bat would be an ideal model in the 28" 18 oz. size. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) will be slightly lighter in a -11 size. Either bat would have high performance and great durability for a two-piece, balanced, fully composite design.

Brandon Expert ·Jun 24, 2014

93267

Does the 2014 Easton MAKO have to be broken in?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) will require a break-in process. We recommend 150 swings off the tee or soft toss. Make sure you rotate the barrel a quarter of an inch every 15-20 swings to fully break-in the composite fibers.

My son is going into 5th Grade. Can he use a big barrel bat?

Unfortunately, that depends on your specific league's ruling which can vary across leagues. For a player in 5th Grade, you might still be required to use the 2 1/4" barrel diameter of the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth. Concerning bat legality, it is best to check with a coach or league director.

If my easton mako 2014 is chipping what should i do to help prevent that? Or fix the chipped parts?

There is nothing really you can do to fix the chipped parts of the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) but to prevent it from happening more would be to make sure you do not hit the bats on your cleats or anything like that.

based on your height and weight, that would be a good size of the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) for you. The new lineup from Easton comes out in September of this year.

My son is 4 foot 5 and weighs 73 pounds. He wants to use this bat for fall ball and next baseball season. What size would you recommend that would also be good for next year?

Based on your son's height and weight we can come up with a range for what would be a good size of the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) for his current size. We cannot estimate the growth he will see in the next year but the upper end of the range we would suggest would be a 30 inch bat.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 22, 2014

92947

We have the Mako and it is awesome but everyone on my son's team wants to use it. Will it lose its effectiveness the more it gets used?

Composite barrel bats like the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) will continue to break down and get hotter and hotter throughout their lifespan. However, use by multiple people will shorten that lifespan and make the bat break sooner.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 20, 2014

92853

Which bat would give me great bat speed and pop the Easton Mako or the DeMarini CF6? Thanks

Both the Easton MAKO and the DeMarini CF6 are well balanced for a quick bat.

Damon Expert ·Jun 19, 2014

92834

Does this bat need to be broken in?

Composite bats like the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) benefit from a brief break-in process of about 150-200 hits of soft toss or tee work while rotating the barrel of the bat.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 19, 2014

92693

Would the MAKO or S1 be better than the Voodoo Overlord if you are a power hitter?

Out of those three modes, I would say that the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord may be better suited for a power hitter due to its end loaded swing weight. That being said, many power hitters do swing more balanced bats like the Easton S1 and the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK).

Marcus Expert ·Jun 18, 2014

92611

Is the Easton Mako -11 approved for use in Little League Intermediate (50/70) division?

I am 10 years old, 5 feet tall and 90 pounds. I'm more of a contact hitter but i have power. What bat would you recommend: the MAKO, XL1, or S1?

For someone like yourself I would probably recommend either the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) or the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1 Youth). Both of those are going to benefit you because of their balanced feel.

Cooper Expert ·Jun 16, 2014

92567

My son swings a 32 inch 19 oz bat. Which size Mako should I get him? The length and weight are different.

The length to weight ratio on the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is -11 so a 32 inch bat would actually weigh 21 ounces. If you want the bat to weigh 19 ounces you would need to go with a 30 inch size.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 16, 2014

92561

Do you have a youth 31" 22 oz. in pink? In a low price range?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) will be an orange and white color scheme. They are not any pinks bats. There is a 31" youth bat but the weight will be 20 oz.

Brandon Expert ·Jun 16, 2014

92540

Is the MAKO Torq better than the MAKO? Is the Torq allowed in Little League?

The 2015 Easton MAKO TORQ will be different from the regular 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) in that it will have a piece on the handle that rotates so it helps with your hand alignment. Other than that it will be similar in performance. It has not been shared with us whether or not the TORQ will make the list of approved bats for Little League.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 15, 2014

92526

Do you have any 30 inch 19 ounce models available?

We do not currently have any 30 inch 19 ounce 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth bats in stock. Our site runs on a live inventory basis so if it is available in the warehouse it is on the site. If it is not showing up on the site we do not have it available.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 15, 2014

92081

Why do they say the Mako has the "fastest swing speed" when it's 1 oz heavier than the S1? Is the Mako that much better than the S1?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) will be very balanced and have very low M.O.I meaning very light swing weight. The MAKO is very well balanced which makes the swing weight feel just that much lighter. The other feature that many see as an added benefit to the MAKO is that while it is so balanced, it also has an extended barrel size over the S1.

Patrick Expert ·Jun 09, 2014

I am confused on which bat to get between the Mako or the XL1. I hit great with both bats. Which one should I choose?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) and the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) are great options and fairly similar by design. The main difference is the weight distribution. The XL1 is end-loaded while the MAKO is balanced. The preference between the two would be based on which style you prefer.

Patrick Expert ·May 31, 2014

91278

I am switching from an S1 to either an XL1 or a MAKO. I am a good hitter. I consistently hit balls to the fence, but only have one home run. Should I get the MAKO or the XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) will feel like the S1 in swing weight. The MAKO will not only have a very balanced feel, but also a longer more extended barrel. The XL1 will have the same extended barrel but more of a barrel heavy feel. Either one will help you get that extra performance you need.

Brandon Expert ·May 28, 2014

90980

Is the MAKO end loaded like the XL1? Or is it balanced like the S1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK) is going to be extremely balanced, and will be similar to the Easton S1.

Can this bat resist cracking at 50 degrees?

My son is 10 years old. What bat do you recommend him getting: the Easton MAKO or the DeMarini CF6?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth and the DeMarini CF6 are both very similar bats in both design and performance. They both feature two-piece fully composite designs with balanced swing weights. The choice should be made by preference in manufacturer.

Jason Expert ·May 17, 2014

90541

I am 10 years old and am a fast swinger. Should I get the MAKO or XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) has a balanced swing weight designed for the contact hitter, while the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) has a slight end load to it which is made for the power hitter, so I would choose whichever bat would fit your game better.

Kyle J. Expert ·May 17, 2014

I have a MAKO, and I've used it for about 16 games and batting practice. I've had about 400 hits with it, and it feels broken in. Will it last over the summer and into the fall? Also, will it have pop when I play in the fall, or will it be dead?

The composite material used in the 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK) will expand over its lifetime, making it become more powerful. Therefore, you will continually see the performance increase the more that you use it. It should last you through the summer and fall.

Merritt Expert ·May 15, 2014

90447

I just purchased the MAKO bat for my 12 year old son. How do I break it in?

To properly break-in your 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) we recommend to take 100-200 swings off a tee or soft toss. Rotate the barrel approximately 1/4" each swing. Make sure to avoid using a composite bat in batting cages that use yellow dimpled balls.

My 11 year old son is 4'11" and 100 lbs. and plays on a tournament team. Also, he has quick hands. Which bat do you think would be better for him, the MAKO or the XL1? Also, which size?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is a balanced, two-piece bat designed for a contact hitter that needs to increase their bat speed. The 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) is an end loaded bat and best for a player with quick hands. Based on his height and weight we recommend a 30" bat.

Kara Expert ·May 15, 2014

90192

I have an 11 year old son who is deciding on whether he wants Easton Mako or an Easton XL1. What do you recommend?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) and the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14MK) would be great options. The major differences would be that the MAKO has an enhanced connection point between the barrel and the handle that helps reduce sting and vibration. The XL1 is more of an end-loaded design so it will be more barrel heavy and more suited for a power hitter style player.

Patrick Expert ·May 11, 2014

90131

I heard rumors about a MAKO TORQ and a 2015 MAKO. Is it true?

Yes, Easton is releasing both a MAKO model and the MAKO TORQ for their 2015 line.

90114

Is it okay for this bat to be used in a batting cage with rubber balls? Also is it okay for another person to use this bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth should not be used in batting cages with the yellow dimpled balls. Other players can use the bat, but it is best if it is limited to one player. If you can avoid multiple users and the yellow dimpled cage balls, the bat will have a longer lifespan.

My son is 10 years old. He is 4'5" and weighs about 80 lbs. He is a great contact hitter and is currently using an Easton XL3 in a 29/18. He would like to use the MAKO, and I would like him to use this next year. What size do you recommend?

Based on his approximate height and weight, I would probably suggest a 30/19 in the 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK). This size will also allow him to use it next year as well.

Merritt Expert ·May 08, 2014

Is the 2014 Easton MAKO bat single or double walled? I am starting a 12U travel baseball team in my area next year. Currently my son plays in PONY League and the bat is permitted. The travel league however lists "Double Wall Bats Not Permitted" for 12U teams. I purchased the 29" MAKO bat earlier this year for my son and he currently uses it in PONY baseball.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is a double wall composite bat.

Kara Expert ·May 08, 2014

89787

What bat should I pick: the MAKO or the CF6?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) Youth and the CF6 are both very comparable bats. They are both two-piece composite designs with balanced swing weights. Usually, it is suggested to stick with the manufacturer you have had success with in the past.

I am 4"11" and 80 lbs. What size should get? I used the Easton XL3 last year and I had trouble getting through the zone.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) would be a great option. The MAKO is extremely balanced and will help increase your bat speed. Based on your height and weight, I would recommend a 30" model.

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) bat will only help increase your performance at the plate. The extended barrel length and balanced swing weight will help you hit more liners and help put more distance on your deep hits.

How do I get a ball mark off of the bat?

In order to remove dirt, oils and ball marks off of the 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK) all you will need is a simple cotton cloth, and soap mixed with water. Use a bleach-free dish soap and water mixture to avoid scratching the surface. Composite manufacturers emphasize that you only use soap and water when cleaning composite materials. Apply extra muscle when scrubbing to the parts of the bat that are still dirty. Use a clean towel to remove the moisture when you are done. This should help remove the ball marks off of the barrel of the 2014 Easton MAKO: (YB14MK).

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) is a balanced bat and is best suited for a contact hitter. The 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) is an end loaded bat and best designed for a power hitter. Based on his height and weight we recommend a 31" 21 oz.

What is the difference between the Junior Big Barrel MAKO and the Youth MAKO?

My son is 8 years old, 4'4" , 117 lbs. What would be the best size for him? He is currently using an Easton Stealth sc900 carbon handle/alloy barrel 29"/16 oz.

I would recommend a 29" bat. The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) would give him a large sweet spot to work with and would be a great fit.

88434

Son is 12 years old , 4' 9" and 79 lbs. Currently, he has the S2 30" 17 oz. He is a contact hitter with little power. Will the additional 2 oz. hamper or help him? Can't seem to control big barrels, so 2 1/4" is better fit. He needs the biggest sweet spot they have.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) sounds like it would be the best bat for you. The MAKO will have a full composite design, a larger sweet spot, and a more balanced swing. At his age, I would highly recommend going up the extra couple ounces.

Justin R. Expert ·Apr 20, 2014

88386

How long does this bat take to be broken in? I already hit about 70-80 baseballs with it.

As you know with all composite barrel bats we recommend a break-in. A good break-in consists of 150-200 hits off a tee or soft toss, start at about 40% power and gradually increasing as you get closer to 150 swing mark. Rotate the bat a quarter of an inch between each hit to ensure an even break-in. You'll feel the pop once the bat is broken-in.

Zach Expert ·Apr 19, 2014

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 amsko 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth along Easton XL1 is a very high performing youth bat. The XL1 is very good as well. Typically, if you are a power hitter, I would suggest the Easton XL1. If you are more of a contact hitter, I would go with the MAKO.

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.

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 is 5' 96 lbs. What size MAKO should I get him? He currently swings a 30" 20 oz Omen the best bat ever.

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" model of the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth.

Is this bat end loaded or does it have a balanced swing weight?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth has a balanced swing weight.

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

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.

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.

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

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?

How will this bat compare to the DeMarini CF5? Both are drop 11 and it looks like the MAKO is also balanced and they are both full composites. Is it barrel length? And if so, what would the difference be for a a 30 inch model?

61576

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.

Mac Expert ·Aug 07, 2013

61522

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.

Mac Expert ·Aug 06, 2013

61492

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.

The 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth is a combination fo the Easton XL1 and the Easton S1. It is a balanced bat that has an extended barrel. It uses newer composite material for a bigger sweet spot.
