Questions and Answers for 2014 Easton S4 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB14S4
My son is 70 lbs and 54" tall, what size do you recommend?
Based on results from our Bat Coach (http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/), we recommend a 30" 2014 Easton S4 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S4) for a player with your height and weight.
Does this bat have a large sweet spot?
The 2014 Easton S4 (BB14S4) has a 2 1/2" barrel and will have a smaller than average sweet spot. The 2 1/2" barrel will help generate a quicker swing speed.
Does this bat come in a 2 5/8 barrel size?
The 2014 Easton S4 BBCOR (BB14S4) does not come in a 2 5/8" barrel. The Easton S3 (BB14S3) would be the 2 5/8" version of the Easton S4.
What's the difference between composite, hybrid, and alloy. And are they allowed in high school?
For the difference and benefits of each combination of materials, check out the videos in this link: http://www.justbats.com/buying-guides/baseball-bats/. And as long as a bat is BBCOR certified, like this 2014 Easton S4 BBCOR (BB14S4), it will be approved for high school baseball.
i am 6'3" tall and weight 180 pounds and I can't hit with the Easton XL. Is this a good bat?
Yes, the 2014 Easton S4 BBCOR: BB14S4 would probably be a good bat for you. Unlike the Easton XL, the S4 has a very balanced swing weight that will alloy for maximum bat speed.
I have used the Easton XL and I couldn't hit it. So i used the Easton S3 and hit with it. i want power so what bat should I use?
I would recommend the 2014 Easton S4 (BB14S4). It has the lightest swing weight of any of the Easton models. This will allow you to create more bat speed and generate more power.
difference between S1 S2 S3 and S4?
The Easton S1 (BB14S1) is a two-piece full composite. Easton S2 (BB14S2) is a two-piece hybrid. The Easton S3 (BB14S3) is a one-piece alloy in a 2 5/8 inch barrel. And the Easton S4 (BB14S4) is a one-piece alloy in a 2 1/4 inch barrel.
How is the Easton S4 lighter? This bat is still a drop three and will still be exactly the same weight. Please explain this because I would really like for this bat to swing lighter then my other BBCOR bat.
The reason why the Easton S4 BBCOR (BB14S4) would swing lighter is because it has a skinnier barrel diameter in a 2 1/4". That helps with quicker bat speed compared to a normal BBCRO 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
will this bat help me with my power and will it help me hit more home runs
The Easton S4 (BB14S4) has a 2 1/2" barrel diameter. The smaller barrel would help with a quicker swing and tends to favor more towards a contact hitter then a power hitter. I would recommend the Easton XL3 (BB14X3) if your looking for power.
I am 5'4" and 90 lbs and am going into high school. I currently swing a 31 in 26 oz bat and I need a BBCOR bat for high school. Would you recommend the 2014 Easton S4 or the S3?
You can't really go wrong with either bat, both are very high quality, one-piece alloy bats that use Easton's THT100 Scandium Alloy. The only difference between the two is that the S3 has a 2 5/8" barrel and the S4 has a slightly smaller, 2 1/2" barrel. Both bats are going to give you a balanced feel for ideal bat speed, however the smaller barrel size of the S4 should allow for slightly faster bat speeds.
I am 5'4," 85 lbs. and an all contact hitter. I'm going into high school next year and need a -3 BBCOR bat. Would you recommend the 2014 Easton S4 or the S3?
Typically for a player this size we would recommend a 29" bat. With that being said, your best bet would be the 2014 Easton S4. Although the S4 possesses a slightly smaller barrel diameter, it is manufactured in a length of 29."
Would you recommend the Easton S3 or S4 for me? I am 5' 3" and 100 lbs.
The 2014 Easton S4 BBCOR: BB14S4 Adult and 2014 Easton S3 BBCOR: BB14S3 Adult are constructed from the same high quality materials and will perform at the same level. The S3 has the standard BBCOR 2 5/8" barrel for a larger hitting surface. The S4 has a smaller, 2.50" barrel, which takes some weight out of it to make it more balanced. The lighter swing weight of the S4 makes it a great choice for smaller players or players transitioning to a heavier BBCOR model.
Will the 2014 Easton S3 BBCOR bat be on sale?
Once we receive the 2014 Easton S3's in our warehouse we will list them for a Prebook option. We will have the full Power Brigade line up available on September 1st.
My son will be using it in the middle school. Is 2 1/2 inch barrel allowed?
Yes. If he needs to BBCOR certification the 2 1/2" barrel is allowed.
