Which delivers more pop - the composite or alloy? What length do you recommend for a 10-year old who is 4'9" and 70 pounds? He's a good contact hitter but doesn't have a lot of power.
Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" 2014 Easton S3 (YB14S3). Composite materials tend to have more pop than alloy because the composite material acts as a trampoline. The more the composite is used the farther the ball bounces. However, composite does take longer to break in. The Easton S3 has excellent pop for an alloy bat and does not require a break in period. Alloy is less expensive to manufacture and therefore, costs less. The Easton S3 is a stiffer bat, better for a player with some power.

Our 7 year old son is 49" tall and 50 lbs. We live in Iowa and begin outdoor kid-pitch baseball in March. Temperatures can be cool (50's and low 60's) and play through the end of July. We've looked on your site at the S1, S2, S3 and the MAKO bat. Our son prefers a balanced bat (not heavy on the end) and we've had good experiences with Easton bats so far. Considering he's 7, we're not sure about spending $279 for the MAKO. Considering his size, the climate he plays in, and wanting to stay in the $200 and below price range, what bat would you recommend?
The 2014 Easton S3: YB14S3 Youth or the S2 Youth would be great bats for him at his age and size. They both would swing very balanced and not feel barrel heavy at all.
My son is 9, but a big 9 (weighs about 108 lbs) and is a power hitter. I was told by a few of his coaches to get the Easton S3, and one of them recommended the 29". (He used a 28" 18 oz. last year.) Isn't there an S3 that is 29" 19 oz.?
The 2014 Easton S3: YB14S3 Youth is available in a 29" 16 oz. The youth big barrel model: 2014 Easton S3: SL14S310 Senior League is available in a 29" 19 oz. If his league allows big barrel bats we recommend the S3, youth big barrel.
How does this compare to the XL3 model?
The 2014 Easton S3: YB14S3 Youth is made from the same alloy material and features the same one-piece alloy design as the XL3 model. However, the S3 is a very balanced bat while the XL3 features an extended barrel length which gives the bat a slightly end loaded swing weight. Both bats are certified with the same BPF 1.15 performance restriction.
My son will be 7 when baseball season starts. He is 4'4" and weighs 60lbs. Would the YB14S3 or the YB14S2 be better for him?
