Questions and Answers for Easton FS2 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP13S2
What is difference between 2014 FS1 and 2014 FS2 fastpitch bats?
The Easton FS1 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP14S1) is a two-piece design that provides more flex and a bit more sting and vibration protection than the Easton FS2 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP13S2). Due to the lesser flex of the bat, the FS2 is a bit easier to control.
My daughter is 12 and about 120 lbs. She plays 12u travel and is a power hitter. Would the Easton FS2 be a good bat for her 32" 22 oz.?
The Easton FS2 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP13S2) features a balanced swing weight, which is generally preferred by contact hitters. Typically power hitters will tend to favor an end loaded swing weight. The FS2 does feature a one-piece design, which is also preferred by power hitters, since it provides a stiffer feel on contact. Ultimately, it will come down to personal preference. With regard to sizing, we recommend checking out our Bat Coach, which can give you a better idea based on her height and weight.

The DeMarini Vendetta features the two-piece full composite design and a -12 length to weight ration, so it features a lighter swing weight.

Ultimately, it depends on if the player has a preference on a heavier swing weight and the one-piece design of the Easton FS2 or the lighter swing weight and the two-piece design of the DeMarini Vendetta.

The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch is a balanced bat and is designed for a player that needs to increase their bat speed. A stronger player would benefit most from an end loaded bat like the 2013 Easton FX1: FP13X1 Fastpitch.
Out of the Easton FS1 or Easton FS2 which on has more pop?

My daughter just got a Easton FS2 power Brigade bat. How and what is the best way to break it in.
We recommend taking 150-200 swings while doing soft toss. Make sure she rotates the barrel around a 1/4" of an inch every 15-20 swings to help fully break in the composite fibers throughout the barrel.
MY daughter currently has the 2011 Synge and loves it but I think its time for a new bat. Her bat is 30" 18.5 oz right now. She says it feels too light so I would like to get the FS2. If the FS2 replaces the Synge. Whats the difference in the FS2 and the FS3? Why is the FS2 more expensive?
The Easton FS3 replaced the Synge. The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch replaced the Easton Synergy. Although they are both one-piece composite bats, the Easton FS2 has upgraded SIC Black Carbon composite materials in the handle. The Easton FS3 uses IMX composite in the handle and the barrel. The SIC Black Carbon is an extra cost to manufacture, and therefore is more expensive.
Are these bats approved by the ASA 2004 standards? Because I am looking into buying one but in Canada the 2013 ASA approved bats are not legal.

My daughter is on a 10U team. She uses a DeMarini CF5 32" 22 oz. She is 5' 3", 200 pounds, and is a power hitter. Should I change her to an end loaded bat or keep her with a balanced bat. Also, should I go up in length at all?

My 12 year old daughter is 5' 2", 130 lbs, and currently uses a DeMarini Bustos 30" -13. She is a power hitter and I am looking to upgrade her to a full composite that will enhance her power. I was looking at both the Easton FS2 and FS3. What is the difference between the two, and which would you recommend for her?
The Easton FS2 has an IMX composite barrel and a SIC carbon fiber handle to reduce more vibration. The Easton FS3 uses an IMX composite for the barrel and handle so there will be a little more vibration. The Easton FS2 would be a great choice, but you also might want to take a look at the Easton FX2, it has more of an end loaded feel, which is best for power hitters.
My daughter is 11, currently using a 2 year old bat 30"20 oz. She swings it very easily. She is 5 ft 1 and weighs 110. She wants to stay with the same size bat. I wonder if going to a 31" 21 oz. would be better. She's a strong hitter and still growing.
If she has good bat speed with the 30" 20 oz, we recommend a 31" 21 oz. 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch.
I have a 12 year old daughter that is a good contact hitter, with the potential of becoming a very good power hitter. Is there a certain Easton or Demarini bat you would recommend for her right now?

What is the difference for a contact hitter or a power hitter?
The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 fastpitch bat would be a good option for both types of hitters. Power hitters will like the stiff flex of the one-piece design while contact hitters will enjoy the balanced swing weight.
Will the whole FS Series of bats be able to be used next year with the new bat rules coming out? Also, what bat is equivalent to the Easton Stealth Speed -10?
The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 will have the new USSSA BPF 1.20 stamp for 2014 play as will the rest of the 2013 FS Series bats. The 2013 Easton FS1 would be the most comparable bat to the Easton Stealth Speed.
Is this bat end-loaded like the FS1? I used the FS1 at my practice and it was a little heavy at the end. I was just wondering if the end-loads were different?
Both the 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch bat and the 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch bat feature balanced swing weights.
Does this bat have the new USSSA Stamp, so it will be legal after September 1, 2013?
The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch features the new USSSA 1.20 stamp, so it is and will be legal.

Could you tell me the difference between the Easton FS1 and the Easton FS2? I see one is two piece and the other is one. What are the other differences? Are the barrels/sweet spots the same lengths?
The main difference between the 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch and the 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch is the Easton FS1 will have more flex than the FS2 because it is a two-piece composite bat. Both bats will have the same sweet spots and barrel length.
Do FS and FX bats have a break in period, or do they have pop right out of the box?
The Easton FS1, FX1, FS2, FX2, and FS3 all feature an IMX composite barrel that will require a break-in period. We recommend 150-200 hits soft-toss or off a tee while rotating the barrel a quarter of an inch.
Is this bat better for a power hitter or slap hitter?
The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch is designed as a great bat for an all-around hitter. However, due to its well balanced design, slap hitters should love it.
Any real difference between this and the 2012 stealth model?
The 2013 Easton FS2 replaced the Easton Synergy. The 2013 Easton FS1 replaced the Stealth. The main difference in the 2012 Stealth and the Easton FS1 is the FS1 uses a new composite material in the handle for better durability.
Is this the new model of the Stealth? If not, what is for 2013?
The 2013 Easton FS2 is the model that replaced the Easton Synergy Speed. The 2013 Easton FS1 and FX1 are the models that replaced the Stealth Speed. The FS1 is balanced and the FX1 is end loaded.
