How come I cannot find many Easton XL1 32 inch (-5) anywhere lately? Many of my friends have that bat and it is wonderful. I just cannot seem to find it.

The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X15) has been discontinued in production in order to move on to the 2015 model that will be released in September. For that reason, many companies have limited sizing available just based on what they have left in their inventory.

I'm on a 7th grade only All Star Babe Ruth district team. I'm wondering is this bat legal?

No, the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League (SL14X15) will not be approved for play in Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth requires composite barrel bats to be BBCOR certified so this would not be allowed. You will have to use an alloy barrel in a senior league model or bump up to a -3 BBCOR bat for composite.

John Expert ·Jul 02, 2014

What is the difference between XL1 and XL3 bats?

The Easton XL1 (SL14X15) is a two-piece full composite design. The Easton XL3 (SL14X39) is a one-piece all alloy design. The XL3 will be game ready right out of the wrapper while the XL1 will require a break-in period. We recommend around 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.

I am 5'1" 96 lbs, and I use a 30/21 in the MAKO. However, next year I have to use -5 or -3, and I like this bat, but I'm not sure what size.

Based on your approximate height and weight, I would suggest a 31/26 in the 2014 Easton XL1: (SL14X15).

I am 4'6" and 190 lbs. What size should I use?

My son is 12 years old, 5'11, 145 lbs. He is a power hitter. The problem is bat weight. He is used to hitting with an 18oz Little League bat. What weight should I go up to with as little problem as possible? His summer league uses 2 5/8 barrel with no weight restriction. He likes Easton bats. Is there another model we should look at?

The 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15 Senior League) would be a good option to look at because it is a bat directed for power hitters. As for size, someone his size would be able to swing a pretty big bat. I think he would be able to swing anywhere from a 23 oz. to a 25 oz.

Cooper Expert ·Jun 18, 2014

Does the Easton XL1 -8 have a larger barrel than the Easton XL1 -5?

The 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15 Senior League) and the -8 version will have the same barrel length if they are the same overall length. A longer bat will have a longer barrel.

Does the -5 XL1 have similar pop to the -8? Which would you recommend for me? I am 5 foot 5 and weigh 140 pounds.

The -5 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) would have more power capability if you swing it the same speed as the -8 due to the added weight. If you can swing it, I would go with the -5.

Patrick Expert ·May 29, 2014

91337

how many hits on average does it take to break in

The 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) should take between 150-200 swings of soft toss or tee work before it reaches its full performance potential. It is important to remember to rotate the barrel while doing this to ensure and even break-in.

If I'm using a -8 XL1 right now, should I switch to a -5 if I'm going to 8th grade next season?

Going from a -8 to a -5 would be our recommended transition. If your league does not require 8th Grade players to us a BBCOR -3 already, using the -5 next season would ensure that the transition to a BBCOR model would be as gradual as possible. We would recommend going to the -5 prior to a BBCOR bat if possible, so that you are not increasing the weight of the bat 5 ounces in one season. Many players can make that jump, but it wouldn't be our recommendation to go from a -8 to a -3 in one year.

Mac Expert ·May 12, 2014

Does it last long?

2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) is a durable bat. However, if something were too happen to the bat it is covered by a full 12 month manufacturer's warranty.

I am 5' 81 lbs and I play in USSSA league. I am looking for a bat out of the power brigade series. Which would you recommend?

If your game is more representative of a contact hitter I would probably suggest taking a closer look at the 2014 Easton XL1: (YB14X1). The two-piece composite design will create a little bit more flex, and this material will heat up over time. The 2014 Easton XL3: (YB14X3) will work great if you are a power hitter. The one-piece alloy design will provide a stiffer feel, and the THT100 Scandium Alloy used will provide great pop. Ultimately, it will depend on what type of game you have that will determine which model is best suited for you.

Merritt Expert ·May 05, 2014

89598

Is this bat approved for Babe Ruth play?

No. The 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) would not be approved for Babe Ruth play. The models of the XL1 that would be approved would be the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR (BB14X1) for the 13-15 year old and 16-18 year old age division and the 2014 Easton XL1 (YB14X1) for the Cal Ripken division (6-12 years old).

Patrick Expert ·May 04, 2014

89569

What size should I get? I am in 7th grade, 6' and 160 lbs?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 32" model in the 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) Senior League.

Jason Expert ·May 04, 2014

89508

Will there be a 32" -5 bat anytime soon?

We are expecting more 32' models of the 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) Senior League. Unfortunately, we do not have a firm date for when that will be. Typically out of stock items take 2-4 weeks before they are back in stock.

Please break down for me the exact differences between the Easton SL14X35 and the Easton SL14X15. I understand the material differences ..... simply put, which bat has more power? Will they be exactly the same with just a difference in feel and sound?

The Easton XL3 (SL14X35) is a one-piece alloy bat whereas the Easton XL1 (SL14X15) is a two-piece full composite. The SL14X35 will have less flex going through the hitting zone and this stiffer feel is generally preferred by power hitters. The SL15X15's two-piece design will allow it to flex more than the SL14X35 which is a swing style that contact hitters seem to prefer more. Both bats should perform very similarly as far as pop goes.

I'm in 7th grade and about 5'3" and about 100 lbs. I currently have the 32" -8 of this bat but it is getting to light. I want a bat for the rest of this year and all of next year. What would be the best bat for me?

We recommend the 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) if you have had success with the 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X18).

Kara Expert ·Apr 30, 2014

Is there a difference between this model and the old white one?

The white XL1 model you're referring to is likely the 2012 model. Between the 2012 and 2013 models, Easton added the stiffer SIC Black Carbon composite handle which improves energy transfer on contact. This 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X15) Senior League bat also features the IMX Composite barrel and SIC Black Carbon composite handle like the 2013 version. Aside from that material difference, the bats will offer very comparable designs and swing weights.
