I'm debating between this in 31" 21 oz, or the CF5 in the same size. I'm a contact hitter, but bat 3rd because I get hits to the outfield which drives in runs. I know both bats are very similar in terms of balance, pop, and durability. Please say what I would do better with.

I understand it takes between 150-200 balls to break in the Easton S1. But once the bat is broken-in, can you use it in batting cages with the yellow balls? Will this kill the pop?
We do not recommend using any bat, including the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League, with those yellow "dimple" cage balls. Those balls are much more dense than a baseball, and could damage or reduce the useful life of your bat.
Would you be aloud to be able to use this in a 13U or 14U game?
This depends on the league you are playing in. The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League is legal in USSSA, but not approved for Little League Juniors Divisions. We recommend checking with your local league official for specific rules.

The YB13S1 will be the same bat design in a Youth version with a smaller 2 1/4" barrel diameter. It will come with a -12 length to weight ratio.

My son is 11 is 5'3" & 130lbs. Hits with power, and also has a high avg. I've been told to go to a 31" or 32" bat -8 - Your thoughts?
Most is going to come down to the size bat he is currently using as swing speed with said bat. Based on his size, a 31" model of the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 would be more common.
Can you compare this DeMarini to the Easton S1 and the Marucci Elite. I have an 11 year old contact hitter that needs bat speed and does not want a heavy bat. What's my best option between the three? Which will give him more pop and power while not slowing his swing and feeling heavier?
2013 Easton S1 Senior League is the speed series. The S series brings speed which adds power to your son's game. The Easton fits the mold of what you are looking for.
My son is 10 years old 4'9" 70 lbs. Will this bat give him the best swing speed?
The 2013 Easton S1 is one of the fastest swinging bats we offer. It would be a great choice for your son.
what would you prefer for a power hitter that wants a fast swing speed but still has enough power to bring in out of the ballpark? the 2014 demarini paradox or the easton s1 32 inches for both bats thank you!
The 2013 Easton S1 Senior League is more for line driver contact hitters. The DeMarini Voodoo Paradox is end loaded and is designed only for power hitters.
Please explain the difference between the three Easton bats. The S1, S2, S3. My son is 11 and looking to move up to a 30 inch bat but I don't want one that is too heavy to compromise speed, but still give him good pop. He is a contact hitter with light power.
The Easton S1 is a two-piece composite bat. The Easton S2 is a two-piece bat with a composite handle and an alloy barrel and the Easton S3 is a one-piece alloy bat. The S1 or the S2 will be best for your son because of the two-piece balanced design.

How do I break in the 2013 Easton S1. 33/30. -3. The best way possible? I'm 6'2 154 pounds. Please help.
To break in the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 we recommend taking 150-200 hits off of soft-toss or a tee.Start at about 40% power and gradually increase as you get closer to the 150 swing mark. Rotate the bat a quarter of an inch between each hit to ensure an even break-in. We also recommend to use real, leather baseballs.
My son is 9. He plays travel ball and little league and last year played around 65 games. He used TPX Catalyst 28" 18 oz. last year. I am looking for a better bat that will increase bat speed and power. He is 4' 3" and around 60 lbs he is small but hits hard. Is this the best bat out for him or what else would you recommend?
With your son's given weight and size we suggest a 28" bat. If you want to add bat speed over time you could go with a 29" 19 oz. bat. The 2013 Easton S1 is a great bat and is perfect for him. It's low M.O.I. generates speed and equals power.
Will you ship to Australia?
Unfortunately we do not ship outside of the United States.
My son is 9. Which Easton bat is appropriate for his age? He is a solid hitter. He has swung a 28/18 prodigy for the last 3 years.
It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate. Thus, the Easton S3 is recommended as it is most similar to the Prodigy in terms of construction and balance.
12 yr old 4'7" 70 lbs. Swung an Easton Omen 2 1/4" 30" 18 oz. last year. Would the S1 2 5/8 30" 20 oz. be the next acceptable upgrade? We are looking at DeMarini CF5 as well. Is one better than other? Thanks!
The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League replaced the Easton Omen. It will have upgraded composite materials and will be more balanced than the Easton Omen. The DeMarini CF5 is also balanced. They are both excellent choices.
Is this bat legal for the Junior division?
The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League is USSSA certified, so it is legal for little league play.
I put a 28/18 S1 on an accurate scale and it weighed nearly 20 oz, while the Combat B4 was a true 18 oz. I notcied this with last year's S3 also. Why does Easton do this?
This is common with many manufacturers. Easton, along with many others weigh their bats before the final stages of production and bats can weigh a little more than advertised because of this.
Does this bat meet 2012 NFHS rules?
The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League bat does not meet standards set forth for high school baseball. All high school player must use a BBCOR certified drop three (-3) bat. The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League bat is a drop ten (-10) bat. It is too light in weight to be used in high school play.

My son is growing like a weed. He used the Easton Omen IMX Composite 28" 18 oz. last year. He's 5' 85 pounds. What do you suggest?
If your son enjoyed the Easton Omen, then the 2013 Easton S1 would be a great choice. It is the model that replaced the Omen, so it is going to be very similar in terms of performance and balance.
Does this swing lighter than the CF5? My son has the gold 29" 19 oz. CF5 and I am looking at either the new 2013 CF5 or S1 in a 30" 20 oz.
The 2013 Easton S1 is a very balanced and light swinging model. Both the DeMarini CF5 and the Easton S1 are very comparable when it comes to performance and balance.
My son is 7 yrs. old and 49 and half inches tall. He plays travel ball on a 9U team. Would you recommend S1 2 5/8 senior bat or a S1 2 1/4 little league bat? He is a contact hitter.
Both the Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League bat and the Easton S1: YB13S1 Youth bat are two-piece fully composite designs that feature balanced swing weights. They are both suited for a contact hitter. I would recommend checking what barrel diameter is legal for the league that he plays in.
Can't make up my mind between the this bat and the S3 2 3/4. My son has the last year's S1 2 1/4 but can move to a big barrel this year. What do you think?
The S1 is recommended as it is always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate.
My 10 year old used the DeMarini Vexxum in a 30/20 in Summer 9u and Fall 10u. He is a contact hitter with average power. Would you recommend the S or the XL for him in Spring 10u and should he stay at 30/20? Thanks in advance.
The DeMarini Vexxum and the Easton XL1 are both end loaded, better designed for a contact hitter with some power. If he needs quicker bat speed we would recommend a more balanced bat like the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League. The length and weight of the bat is best determined by the height and weight of the player. Our bat coach is an excellent tool; http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/.
I am looking for a Easton bat for my 13 year old. Most of guys on his team are ordering -5 bat. I do not see that offering 31"-5 Can you help me?
Here are all the -5 Easton bats: http://www.justbats.com/products/baseball%20bats~youth%20big%20barrel/length%20to%20weight%20ratio~-%205/vendor~easton/
My son is going to be playing for his middle school team, is this legal?
Depends on what association the league is governed by. Some require the USSSA 1.15 stamp (which this has), while others require BBCOR certification (which this does not have). It would be best to check with your son's coach for bat requirements.
We have been using the Rival 2010 bat for the last two years and they are all dented up. Now we need a new bat. We love the pop of the Rival but cannot find a replacement. I have an 8 year old who is a great contact hitter just not a power hitter. I am looking for a bat that will be the same or better than the Rival. Is this the right bat?
The Easton S3: SL11S310 Senior League replaced the RIval. Normally one-piece bats like the Rival and S3 are better suited for power hitters. However, if he has had great success with the Rival, we would recommend the S3. The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League is designed for contact hitters.
Is this bat particularly lighter than the actual weight, for example, if last year I used a 30" 20 oz. and that is very light, will that be too light for me?
The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League bat will swing true to it's weight. There are some sizing options available. We currently have the 30" 20 oz. and the 31" 21 oz. If you were in the 30" last year I would think about the 31" this season.
My son is playing USSSA 13u next spring. When buying a bat, what are the dimensions we should look for? His bat that we bought from JustBats was an Omen 31/21 2 5/8 barrel. What barrel and drop should we be looking for? Thanks
A good size for a 13 year old would be a 31/23. Or, if he is strong enough he could swing a 31/26.
My son is 11 and currently using a 2011 Demarini Vendetta C6. He is a solid contact hitter. Looking at the 2013 S1. Looking for an opinion on which would be better? Pros and cons.
The Easton S1 uses the high performing IMX Composite, and doesn't have any major cons. It would be a great choice for a contact hitter.
is this a big barrel
The SL13S110 is a youth big barrel model, with a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter. Here is the link to view more details on this model. http://www.justbats.com/product/2013-easton-s1--sl13s110-senior-league/15971/
My son is 12 years old. 5'6" and weighs 106 pounds with clothes on. He really would like a big barrel composite bat for travel ball in the spring, plus one that he can continue on with after little league. My son is a good contact hitter and can get into one now and then. Currently tending to be hitting a lot of ground balls with his DeMarini Voodoo 31 inch. Which big barrel bat (size, weight, make) should I be looking at with the Easton. He really wants the new XL1, but I think a drop 5 might be too heavy. Help!!
That's difficult for us to answer without first knowing the length and weight of his current bat. You can either email us at email@example.com, or call us at 1-866-321-2287.
My 10 year old son is 5'5 inches tall and 70 pounds. He is a very good contact hitter with average power. Should we be looking at the S or XL models? Thx.
The Easton S1 is balanced and designed for the contact hitter, whereas the Easton XL1 is more end loaded and designed for a power hitter. Therefore the S1 would be the better bat for you.
I was mistaken in my last question. My son is 59 inches and 81 pounds. Do you this bat size 32 and 22 ounces be a good fit for him?
Based on his height and weight, a 30" model of the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League bat is recommended.
Why is the S1 2 1/4 a -12 and the S1 Big Barrel a -10? Is there going to be a difference feel when my son switches to the big barrel this year?
Big barrel bats are almost always going to be heavier models than youth small barrel bat. Big barrel bats have more surface area for contact and a larger sweetspot.
What is the difference from the 2012 S1 to the 2013 S1?
The new 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 uses new compoiste technology in the handle of the bat for better durability.
Trying to decide between the S and the XL series. Son uses the 2 1/4 S1 need big barrel. Trying to decide which one.
If he has above average strength and swing speed, a bat in the XL Series is recommended. If he has average to below average strength and swing speed, a bat in the S Series is recommended.
Because the 2013 Easton S1 doesnt have the little notches on the end cap to show where to rotate it on each hit like the s2 and s3, how do i know where to rotate it to while breaking in the composite?
All you have to do is rotate the bat a half inch between each hit. You do not have to be exactly at a half inch as it does not matter if you're off by a little bit.
I'm most likely going to buy the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League Bat and I would like to know what exactly "breaking in the composite means/does?
The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League will be a Two-Piece all composite designed bat. We suggest to break-in this bat you take soft toss or tee work at around 100-200 swings before any heavy game use. By breaking in the composite fibers you won't see any damage to the bat and the performance will tend to be much higher. Over time, the more swings you put on this bat the better it will perform. It will act as a trampoline effect. Where as an Aluminum Alloy barrel bat will be the best right out of the wrapper and slowly lose its pop over time.
I am lookin to purchase the 2013 Easton S1 (32in 22oz)i would like to know if it needs to be broken in since it is composite. If the composite does need to be broken in how long does it take.
The Easton S1 is a composite bat that requires a break-in period of 150-200 hits off a tee. Start at about 40% power, gradually increase, and be sure to rotate the bat a half inch in your hands between each hit.
Does the 2013 Easton S1 have a break in period? If so how long is it?
Yes, the 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League requires a break-in period. You should take approximately 150 to 200 soft toss swings or hits off a tee, rotating the barrel a quarter inch every swing to break in the composite materials.
Because the 2013 Easton S1 is composite does it have a date when the composite expires??? If it does when would that be
There is not date in which the composite will expire on the Easton S1.
Besides graphics, what's the difference between the 2012 and 2013 models?
Besides the graphics the 2012 and 2013 Easton S1 Senior League models will be the same with the exception of an upgraded composite material in the handle to reduce vibration.
When is the bat going to be available?
The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League bat will have a release date of November 15, 2012.
