Questions and Answers for Easton CV12: SCG1B Fastpitch
Looking at possibly getting the CV12 for my 8 year old daughter. She currently swings a 19 oz. with good bat speed. Would the 30/20 work for her?
If she has good swing speed and bat control with her 19 oz. bat, then a move up to a 20 oz. Easton CV12: SCG1B would be a natural progression in terms of bat size.
I am a 5'2" 110 lbs ex-player who is looking for a bat suitable for modified fastpitch. 10 years ago I swung a balanced bat, but now I lead off with my old 33/21 and foul line drive after line drive into the third base coach. I was never a power hitter so I am hesitant about an end loaded bat, but would a 32/22 in the slightly endloaded CV12 slow my timing down enough to eliminate the defensive shift, without sacrificing too much power? Or would it make more sense to look for a drop 9?
If you currently have above average swing speed with your 33" 21 oz. bat, then a move up in weight, or a switch to and endloaded bat is recommended. A 22 oz. Easton CV12: SCG1B would be a good choice and it's not enough of an endload and not a big enough jump in weight to negatively impact your swing speed and bat control.
Why will that bat in previous question not be legal in 2014?
The Easton CV12 does not have the new USSSA stamp on the bat, so it will not be legal as of 9/1/13 in USSSA sanctioned events.
I ordered this bat for my daughter today, she is playing league and select ball this year. But starting next year she will be playing high school ball. Will this bat be legal for high school play next year?

Hello, My daughter is 14 and is a heavy hitter she is currently using the 2011 Easton Stealth 32" 22 oz. Is this bat compatible? We need to move to a longer heavier bat.
The Easton CV12: SCG1B is one piece bat with a composite core and an alloy shell. The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 is a two-piece compoiste and it replaced the Easton Stealth. It uses a higher grade of composite in the handle for better durability.
My daughter is 16, 5'8", and a strong hitter. She now has a 33" 23oz. -10 DeMarini. Is it time to move her up to 34, 24oz?
The -10 Easton CV12 my still work for her. If she swings ahead of the ball even a little bit it is time to go to a -9, but if she is right on still I would stay with a -10.
My daughter is 12 yrs old and 5'5 95 pounds she is all arms and legs not much strenth what weight of bat would you recommend and would this be a good bat or maybe the worth speed
Using the Bat Coach feature on JustBats.com, I would recommend an Easton CV12 with a length of 32" and 22oz. If the swing weight is too heavy, Easton also makes a model called the 2013 Easton Mystique which comes in a -12 swing weight. The Mystique model with a 32" length would weigh 20oz.
Do you get both bats in this pack?
The Bat Pack Easton CV12: SCG1B Fastpitch 2-Pack for $169.99 will contain two of the Easton CV12 bats.
My daughter is 16, 5'2" and 130 lbs. She is a strong hitter. What size bat should she use?

My daughter is 15 next march and playing high school softball. She is the smallest on the team. Is this a good choice?
The Easton CV12: SCG1B is a -10 bat with a slightly end-loaded feel designed for power hitters. If she is the smallest on the field, a better -10 option from Easton is the Alpha FP13AL. It will have a much more balanced feel for smaller players who may not be as strong.
If this bat is approved for USSSA then why doen't it have a stamp? Can you apply a sticker?
The Easton CV12: SCG1B Fastpitch is approved in USSSA until September 1, 2013. After that date it will require the new USSSA stamp. A sticker cannot be applied to the bat.
My daughter is U12 power hitter (ASA team). 5'9" -- usually uses a 33" bat-- I am upgrading her to a composite. Very strong girl (swimmer in her other life)-- what would be an appropriate bat weight?
For a power hitter we would recommend an end loaded bat such as the 2013 Easton FX2: FP13X2 Fastpitch in a 33" 24oz.
My daughter plays high school fast pitch. Is this bat legal for her to play in 2013 season? She is a power hitter. Would you recommend this bat for that?
Yes, the Easton CV12: SCG1B Fastpitch would be a great bat for a power hitter.
Does this bat have the 1.2 USSSA stamp that makes it legal for 2013?
Unfortunately, the Easton CV12: SCG1B does not have the new USSSA stamp that they will require beginning 9/1/2013.
what is the lowest temperature this bat can be used without cracking the inner composite tube?
There isn't an absolute temperature that says the bat will crack if it is used in said temperature. Most manufacturers recommend that their bats (especially composite bats) not be used in temperatures under 55 or 60 degrees. The cold weather really effects the hardness of the core of the softball or baseball. If you make an effort to keep your softballs warm during games and practice you should decrease the probability of dented and cracked bats. This bat has an alloy outer wall, which will help with durability in colder temps.
is there a break- in period?
This has an alloy hitting surface with a composite inner tube. It won't require a very extensive break-in period, but I would recommend about 50 to 100 hits of a tee at about 50% power prior to facing live pitching.
