Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth

88150

My son is 4'11, and weigh is 76 lbs., what bat should he be using? I was thinking a size like 31" 19 oz. What do you think?

Based on the information you provided our bat coach suggest a 30" 18 oz. in the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1). If you are expecting your son to grow into a 31" 19 oz. that wouldn't be a bad size for him.

What is the difference between the MAKO and S1? I know the XL is end loaded. Price is not an issue but I am not rich either. I just want to get the right bat for my son who is 12 years old. He is 5' 4" and 103 lbs. I want a bat that could last him at least 2 seasons to grow into. If you had a choice between the three Easton bats what would you choose? Honestly.

The Easton MAKO will be a combination of the Easton XL1 and the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1 Youth) bats. The MAKO will have a two-piece fully composite design, like both the S1 and XL1. The MAKO will have an extended barrel length like the XL1, but with a super balanced feel like the S1. I would go ahead and grab the MAKO for a player who wants the balanced swing feel and the longest barrel possible.

What are differences/improvements made from the 2013 S1 to the 2014 S1 (YB14S1)?

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth and the 2013 S1 are the exact same bat except for the color/paint scheme.

Where is this bat made?

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth bat is manufactured in China.

I have read in places that the S1 has some cracking issues. Does the bat crack and if so is there something one can do to prevent it or should we look at other bat options?We are looking for a bat for a 10 year old that is more of a power hitter.

When the S1 bats were first released there were some durability issues. However, Easton upgraded the composite materials in the handle to increase durability. We also recommend to break-in a composite bat to extend the lifetime. For a power hitter we recommend an end loaded bat such as the 2014 Easton XL ( YB14X1).

I just got this bat and was wondering if there was any chance of me hitting a homer on over the fence. left and right field are 180 feet and center is 200 feet please reply.

Unfortunately, a great bat doesn't guarantee you'll hit a homerun. But this 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth offers a very balanced swing weight which should improve your swing speed. And bat speed is the key to power. This bat should give you a good shot at hitting a homerun. But good luck this season!

My son is 10 yrs old and 54 inches tall and weighs about 90 LBS. Never really shown much power but does hit mostly line drives. Would you recommend this bat (S1), the MAKO or the XL1? Thanks.

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) or the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK) are both great options for a contact hitter. The balanced swing weight is ideal for a player that needs to increase their bat speed. The Easton XL1 is an end loaded bat and designed for a power hitter.

Kara Expert ·Mar 28, 2014

Would you recommend this bat or the XL1 for a lead off hitter who can hit home runs and singles?

I would recommend the Easton XL1 (YB14X1 Youth) for someone who is a power hitter or hits home runs because the weight in the bat is towards the end of the bat. For the Easton S1 (YB14S1) I would recommend it for someone who is a contact hitter who hits to get on base because it is a balanced bat.

Whats the coldest weather you could use this bat with outside

The recommended temperature for best performance on the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1 Youth) is 55 degrees and above.

My son is 9 yrs old. He is 47 inches tall and weighs 60 lbs. He is not a power hitter, but has quick hands. What would be the best bat and size?

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 27" bat. The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth is an excellent option for a contact hitter with its balanced swing weight and two-piece design.

Jason Expert ·Mar 22, 2014

My son is an opposite field hitter, how much will a two piece bat affect his swing?

The two-piece design of the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth bat will offer more flex and create a whipping motion through the zone that you will not see on a one piece design. This motion could disrupt the control a opposite field hitter would desire.

Patrick Expert ·Mar 14, 2014

It is the first year of machine pitch and he is 7 years old and is 51". What is the right size?

Based on his age and height, we suggest a 28" model in the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth. However, the best way to determine the correct size is by the players height and weight. For more sizing information check out our Bat Coach http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

How does this bat compare to COMBAT Wanted? Also my son is 50" and 55 lbs. What bat size do you recommend?

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) and the COMBAT Wanted are both two-piece composite bats. They are both balanced and will perform very well. Based on his height and weight we recommend a 29" bat.

Kara Expert ·Mar 05, 2014

Has Easton shortened the sweet spot on this model compared to previous years?

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth features the same design and sweet spot as previous years. The new 2014 model features the IMX composite barrel and SIC Black Carbon Composite Handle.

My son is 10 years old, 5 ft. 2 inches tall and swings a 30" drop 9 big barrel bat for travel ball. He needs a standard barrel for Little League and wants to keep the 30 drop 9 length to weight ratio. Is this available in the S1?

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) is not available in a -9. The closest to a 30" 21 oz. bat would be the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1). It is available in a 30' 20 oz.

Kara Expert ·Feb 27, 2014

My son is 9 years old. He is 44 inches tall, and about 50 pounds. He has quick hands. What size bat would you suggest?

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend a 27 inch bat. Unfortunately, the 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth model does not currently come in a 27 inch size. The smallest size currently available would be 28 inches. If your son does generate good bat head speed, he may be able to adjust to a longer bat by choking up on the handle.

Patrick Expert ·Feb 25, 2014

Wow do I break-in this bat?

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth features very high quality composite that will only require a short break-in period. We recommend 150-200 swings off of a tee or with soft toss to get this bat game ready. We also have some "how-to" videos located on our JustBats.com blog.

my son is 5ft tall and weighs 88 lbs what bat size would you recommend. He not a big kid but has quick hands.

Given your son's height and weight, the recommended length range we suggest would be between 29 and 31 inches. The longer the bat, the heavier it will be. The player should use the heaviest bat that is comfortable for them to swing. However, it is important that the weight does not severely lower bat speed.

Patrick Expert ·Feb 16, 2014

My son is 12 and 5feet 2 inches. He ways about 98lb, What length ane weight would you recommend for him?

For the 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth at that given height and weight we would suggest 31 inches and 19 ounces.

My son just turned 12, he is 62 inches and 84 pounds. What size and weight combo would you recommend? He used an 18 oz. bat the past 2 years.

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1 Youth) is a very balanced, two-piece bat. The -12 drop is typically used by younger players. We recommend the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth) 31" 20 oz. for a player his age and size.

My son is 8 yrs old 60 lbs and 4'2". He is a contact hitter but a little bit of a slow swing. Would you recommend this model? last year he used an Easton 27" -13.

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth has a balanced swing weight and is a great option for players trying to increase their bat speed. Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 28" model.

What is the difference between the 2013 model and the 2014 model?

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) Youth and the 2013 Easton S1 (YB13S1) Youth are the same bat other than the physical appearance.

I'm 11 and a half, 85 lbs, and 58" tall. I currently have a 29/17 one-piece composite bat, but I feel like it's getting too small. My friend has the 2013 Easton S1 30/18 and I love it. What bat and size would you recommend?

The best recommended bat length for a player your size will be 30". The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth bat will come in a 30" 18 oz. size.

My son is 9 years old, weighs 66 lbs and is 4'4" tall. He is not a power hitter. Would this bat be good for him and, if so, what size?

The 2014 Easton S1 (YB14S1) is a good choice for a contact hitter. It will be balanced and light weight. We would recommend getting a 28''. For more information on sizing please visit our Bat Coach at http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/.

I was wondering about the vibration on this bat. I see it kind of has mixed reviews. I was thinking about getting this for my grandson for Christmas. We are in the process of figuring out if he will need the 30" or 31"

There are no major issues with vibration on this model. It may have a little bit as the bat goes through the break-in period of approximately 150-200 swings.

What bat should I get? I am 4'8' 67 pounds and almost 12. I am looking to get the S1 but the reviews on the XL1 are amazing.

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth is a balanced bat and is better for a player that needs to increase their bat speed. The Easton XL1 is end loaded and best suited for a power hitter. Both are two-piece composite bats with great pop.

Which has a lighter swing weight: the Easton S1 or the S2?

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth and the 2014 Easton S2: YB14S2 Youth are going to have the same swing weight and balanced feel.

Marcus Expert ·Dec 05, 2013

My son is 85 lbs and 58". He really wants a composite bat and is definitely more of a contact hitter not as much power. Would the S2 be a good choice in 31/19? I would like for him to be able to grow into it a little. (He grew 10 lbs and 4 inches in the past year). He is currently using an aluminum bat 30/18.

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth is a great choice. The balanced, two-piece design is suited for a contact hitter.The 31" 19 oz. is a great choice if you want a bat he can grow into.

Trying to decide between the S1 29/17 and Mako 29/18 for my son. He is going to be U11 for 2014 (turning 10 in Jan). He is 53" tall and weights 60 lbs. He is a contact hitter with not too much power. But he wants to drive the ball farther. Which one would you suggest?

Both the 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth bat and the 2014 Easton MAKO Youth bat would work for him. They both feature very light and balanced swing weights. Also, both are two-piece fully composite designs. The MAKO will have an extended barrel design that the S1 will not have. Which could help with contact and power.

What is the difference between the S1 and the XL1?

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth and the 2014 Easton XL1: YB14X1 Youth are both two-piece composite bats. The Easton XL1 is end loaded, compared to the Easton S1 that is balanced.

How does 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth (-12) differ from the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFL Youth (-11) outside of the difference in the drop?

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth and the 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCFL Youth are both balanced, two-piece composite bats. The main difference is the CF6 features D-Fusion technology to eliminate vibration.

Kara Expert ·Nov 18, 2013

What is the difference between the 2013 and 2014 S1 youth model?

The 2013 and 2014 Easton S1 youth models are going to be very similar. Both models use Easton's IMX composite in the barrel and will feature the SIC Black Carbon Composite handle. The 2014 has made some slight improvements to increase the life span of the bat.

John Expert ·Nov 15, 2013

I am trying to decide between a Mako 29/18 and S1 29/17. I know he can swing a 29/17, but he is only 8 and getting better. I also have a 30/18 big barrel he can't swing.

Based on his age, our charts recommend a 29" model in the 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth bat. For further information on sizing, please visit our Bat Coach at http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

Is this bat better or the mako

Both the 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth and the 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth are balanced two-piece fully composite bats, but the MAKO will have a bigger barrel with an extended sweet spot.

Jason Expert ·Nov 11, 2013

My boy is 10 years 5' 4" and bats left with good power when finding the sweet spot. He tends to be a little slow sometimes with his swing just don't want to waste money. What bat would be good?

The 2014 Easton S1: YB14S1 Youth is a top-of-the-line two-piece composite model. It's very well balanced, which will help your son to increase bat speed. The composite handle will also provide some flex, creating a whip effect through the zone for additional bat speed.

How many inches is the sweet spot on this bat and how many inches is the sweet spot on the 2014 MAKO?

The size of the sweet spot on the bat depends on the size of bat you are looking at getting. The 2014 MAKO Youth has an extended sweet spot which will be larger than the 2014 Easton S1 Youth.
