Questions and Answers for Easton L1.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat: SP14L1
I'm looking to buy a easton but, which bat gives more distance, the L1.0 or the L6.0?
The 2014 Easton L1.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14L1) and the 2014 Easton L6.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14L6) will have similar performance and similar distance if hit the same way. They are all rated to the same level for safety reasons. The differences are more based on feel or what leagues the bats are legal for.
Seeing that the 28 ounce model has a 3 ounce endload, does that mean it's actual weight is 31 ounces?
No. The 28 ounce model of the 2014 Easton L1.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP14L1) will weigh 28 ounces but will have a feel of 3 ounces weighted more towards the barrel. So it is 3 ounces off from being a balanced bat.
The league I play in allows ASA and ISF bats, which means that both the Easton L1 and L3 would be legal. Which of these two bats would hit the .52 core balls better?
Both of these models are going to be very high performing and are excellent options. However, if you are choosing between both of these, I would probably recommend the 2014 Easton L1.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat: (SP14L1).
Can you use this bat with the .52 balls?
The 2014 Easton L1.0 (SP14L1) is USSSA certified which means that it is meant to hit either Classic M or Classic M Plus balls. The Classic M Plus balls have a .52 core and a 275 compression.
I'm looking to buy two top quality bats for my mixed slow pitch team. The girls are contact hitters while the boys want power. What two Easton bats should I go with? The L1.0 and the B1.0?
For their USSSA certified models, the L1.0 and B1.0 would be Easton's highest quality options. Ultimately, it depends on the player's preference to one-piece or two-piece design. But the L1.0 would be a great option for a power hitter, while the balanced swing weight of the B1.0 would be a perfect fit for a player who hits for contact.
Is this bat stiff, or does it have flex?
The 2014 Easton L1.0 (SP14L1) Slow Pitch bat is a two-piece fully composite model, so it offers more flex than a one-piece design. But the SIC Black Carbon Composite in the handle provides a stiffer flex than some other two-piece models.

This Easton model will provide the same design and swing feel. It will also be ASA approved: 2014 Easton L3.0 (SP14L3 Slow Pitch).
