My son has a tough time with stinging. Will this bat be good for him?
One-piece bats like the 2014 Easton S500: YB14S500 Youth typically have more sting than a two-piece bat. We recommend a bat with a composite handle to eliminate vibration. The 2013 Easton S2: YB13S2 Youth would be an excellent option.
My son is 5 years old and currently uses a 27" 14 oz. Reflex. I believe the 2012 model, black in color. He is tall for his age and gets the bat around pretty good. More of a contact hitter rather than power. I am wondering if the 28" 15 oz. would be too large or a good fit for him?
Try using our at coach to size your son. You can find it in the link. If it says to get him a 27" bat you might just go to a 27" 15 oz. bat. http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
