My son is 10 years old, 4'6 and 67lbs. He's on the the stronger side for his size. If he got a 29'' -9 Xl3 big barrel would it be to heavy for him?

Very interested in this bat.but how can i tell if my kid can handle the -9 drop in 6 months after swinging a -10 drop
Really only going to be able to tell once he gets to that point, but really shouldn't be a problem after swinging the drop 10 for 6 months. You could always purchase and keep plastic on the barrel until he gets to that point. Once he does get there, have him take some swings without any contact to get a feel for the weight. If he isn't ready for it yet or you just want to return it, you can print a return label off our site. Just make sure to keep the wrapper on the bat through that whole process until you decide on what your doing.
I am unsure how this bat relates to the 2013 XL3 -10. My 11 year old used that bat last year in a 29" 19 oz. What is the difference in the 2 different 2014 XL3 versions (-11 and -9) besides the obvious?
The 2014 Easton XL3: SL14X39 Senior League and the 2014 Easton XL3: YB14X3 Youth both use the same alloy materials. The barrel diameter and the drop are the only differences. Both bats have an end loaded feel, designed for a power hitter.
Is there a 29" 21 oz. size available?
Unfortunately, the 30" 22 oz. model of the 2014 Easton XL3: SL14X39 Senior League is the smallest size being produced.
Does this bat have the same ping sound like the Youth XL3? And would the -9 weight be too much of a change for my kid after using the Youth -11 XL3 in the same length?
The exact sound is likely not the same between the 2014 Easton XL3: SL14X39 Senior League and XL3 Youth because of the barrel diameters. However, this XL3 is a one-piece alloy and does produce a "ping" sound on contact. As far as the increase in weight, going up 2 ounces is a season is manageable for many players and is the max of our recommendation for weight increase in a season.
