Questions and Answers for Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult
I'm a 6'1" 220 lbs. power hitter. Would you recommend me buying this in a 34" 31 oz. model?
A 34" Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult would be the perfect size for you.
I'm reading a lot that the bat breaks at connection. And I understand that they will replace the bat within the warranty time but what happens if bat breaks again? I was told that they only replace bat one time. Could you shed some light on that?
There were some durability issues with the 2012 Easton S2 BBCOR. However, the 2013 Easton S2 BBCOR has upgraded composite material in the handle for better durability.
Is the S2 stiff flex stiffer than the regular S2?
Easton only produces one version of the S2 BBCOR model, which features regular flex.
I've seen a lot of reviews saying that the connection has broken on two-piece models of ALL brands of BBCOR bats, not just Easton. So, I'm hesitant to buy an S2. The S3 looks like the same bat but it's one-piece. Is there any benefit to getting a two piece, or am I better off with an S3?
The main advantage for a two-piece bat is to reduce vibration and sting on mishits. Two-piece bats like the Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 will also have more flex during your swing, and will create more whipping action at contact. For hitters with average or below average power, this additional flex often translates in to a little more pop, but the choice really comes down to the preference of the player.
Will this bat come back in stock in a 32" 29 oz. at the same price?
Unfortunately, the Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult bat is on closeout and we will not be getting anymore 32" 29 oz. bats back in stock.
Is the S2 or S3 more balanced?
The Easton S2 BBCOR and the Easton S3 BBCOR will have the same balance.
I am a freshman and was wondering if coming from a Marucci Black that was a 31" 28 oz. and then going to an Easton S2. what is the difference and should it be better?
Actually, both bats will be very similar. I feel there is more pop with the Easton S2.
I am 13 years old and am trying to decide between the Easton S2 BBCOR or the Easton S4. Which one is better?
The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult bat is a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Easton S4 BBCOR: BB11S4 Adult bat is a one-piece alloy design. Both are very balanced models and are great options.
Between the S1 and S2 which bat would have more pop?
The Easton S1 and S2 will have the same amount of pop. After you break-in the S1 it will stay at its' peak performance longer than the S2 will though.
I am going into Conie Mack for the first year and i am in between a power and contact hitter. I don't know to either get the XL1 or the S1 or possibly S2. I prefer composite bats.
Unless you are a pure power hitter, I'd recommend sticking with the S series. The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult features a half and half design, so if you're a big fan of composite the S1 may be more for you.
My son is moving up to 15u Babe Ruth. He's 13, 5' and 105. Would you recommend the S2 for him?
It all comes down to personal preference, but the Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 is a great two-piece hybrid bat with excellent balance and good pop. It would be a good choice for your son.
I play jv baseball and i'm looking to buy this bat. I'm 5'9 and about 120. I like the S2 aluminum barrel, but would you recommend the all composite S1? Which would you say has more pop?
The Easton S2 BBCOR is a great bat, but comparing it to the S1 the S1 is going to be the higher performing bat. The S2 will gradually decline in performance with ever hit and the S1 will stay at its peak performance until it breaks.
How does this bat compare to the 2013 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR? Talking about the swing speed, flex, and pop.
The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult and the 2013 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR will both have great pop. The 2013 DeMarini Voodoo will be stiffer and more end loaded than the Easton S2 BBCOR.
I am thinking about getting the Easton S2, but I am considering bat speed. Which out of the speed series has the best bat speed?
The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult is balanced like the other Easton speed series bats. Therefore, bat speed will be the same between the bats.
What bat do you think is better the 2012 S2 or the 2013 S2?
Both the 2012 and 2013 Easton S2s are going to be very close to the same. The 2013 just used a new SIC composite in the handle, but both bats will flex equally.
My son complains a lot about his hands stinging. What would be the best bat for him to reduce that, the Easton S1 or S2? Which bat has more pop?
Both the 2013 Easton S1 BBCOR: BB13S1 Adult bat and the Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult bat are two-piece designs and help reduce vibration in the handle. The Easton S1 has a composite barrel whereas the Easton S2 has an alloy barrel, they will be comparable in terms of pop.
Which bat has a lighter swing weight this bat or the 2012 S3?
The Easton S2 and the Easton S3 are going to have the exact same swing weight.
My son is 14 years old and will play in Pony League this year. Last year he used an Easton S2 that was 32" in length and only 22 oz. He has a slow swing therefore he needed a light bat. He must use a BBCOR bat now. What do you recommend? It seems like a 33" will be the correct length, but I am afraid he won't be able to swing a heavy 30 oz bat.
I would recommend getting the Easton S2 in a 32" 29oz. bat his year. It is going to be a little heavy for awhile, but he really has no choice but to go with a heavier bat.
I'm a 5'5" 115 contact hitter, fast hands, like inside pitches. which bat would be more suited to me? the speed s1, s2, or s3?
We recommend 2 piece bats for contact hitters, so the Easton S1 BBCOR or the Easton S2 BBCOR would be a great option. The decision would be up to your preference on materials. Both the Easton S1 and the S2 come with a composite handle. The S1 has a composite barrel whereas the S2 has an alloy barrel.
What is difference between BB11 and BB13?
The 2013 Easton S2 BBCOR: BB13S2 Adult features upgraded materials in both the barrel and the handle. It also comes with a 400 day manufacturer's warranty.
I'm 5'10" & 185 Lbs. I'm a contact hitter, and I lean towards power, but also have a fast bat swing. I can't decide if I should get this in a 33"/ 30 oz. or a XL series bat. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult is a two-piece bat, making it ideal for contact hitters with good bat speed. The Easton XL Series bats are end-loaded and are good options for power hitters.
I was really thinking about buying this bat but i have heard about it breaking what happens if it breaks in half ?
The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 is covered under a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. This means if it breaks within one year of your purchase, Easton will replace it for you.
What is the difference between the 2012 Easton S2 and the 2013 Easton S2?
The 2013 S2 features a new composite in the handle to further reduce vibration and sting.

Which Speed series bat would be recommended for a hitter with below average bat speed?
The Easton S1, S2, S3 and S4 all have light swing weights making them great options for hitters with below average swing speed.
I'm about 6' and weigh about 125 lbs. What size would you recommend?
Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 32" 29 oz. model in the Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult bat. For more information on sizing, please visit our Bat Coach at http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
I'm 5'7, 110 pounds. I hit with more power than most people within 10 pounds of me. I know the S2 is more balanced, but would i get a little more pop out of the end loaded XL2?
That depends on your swing speed. If you have above average swing speed with good power, then I would recommend the XL2 as you will probably be able to generate more power with it's endloaded design.
I am looking for a bat similar to the easton sv12 is this like it, if not is there any bat on the market that is like it ( bbcor )?
The Easton SV12 was a balanced two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Easton S2 will be very, very comparable as it also has a light swing weight and is a two-piece hybrid design.
I am a little worried about buying the S2 after hearing about how much they break. Would a 2012 still be under warranty?
The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 is covered under a 12 month manufacturer's warranty, beginning from the date of purchase.
What length and weight baseball bat do I need? I'm 14 years old, 117 lbs. and 5' 5" tall.

I'm about 5'8" 130 lbs. and have the Nike MC2. I usually have very good bat speed but its not as good with the MC2 (32/29), but I did pretty well with it though. Would this model give me the same pop but a little lighter swing weight?
The Easton S2 BBCOR: BB11S2 Adult bat features a balanced and light swing weight. It will be comparable to the Nike MC2 since both are two-piece hybrid construction.
I am 5'10" & ~140, I look at myself as a contact hitter with power. I have good bat speed & I have used the -3, 32" Marucci Cat5 for about a year and I have done well with it. I am looking to switch to the power brigade series and I am wondering which one I should get?
If you have above average strength and swing speed, the XL3 would be recommended because it is also a one-piece bat like the Cat 5 and it has an endloaded feel. If you have average to below average strength and swing speed, the S3 would be recommended because it is also a one-piece bat like the Cat 5 and it has a balanced feel.
Reading the reviews, a LOT of people had problems with this bat breaking. Has the S2 currently listed for sale on the Justbats website been updated/fixed, or is the same exact bat that is described as easy to break?
Easton has made adjustments to the 2013 Easton S2 BBCOR model. They have upgraded the composite materials in the handle for better durability.
does this make a ping sound
This is going to have a pinging sound from the alloy barrel, but may be slightly dampered from the composite handle. Here is the link to view more details on this model. http://www.justbats.com/product/easton-s2-bbcor--bb11s2-adult/14438/?pa_source=justbats&pa_campaign=was&pa_medium=badges&pa_content=easton-s2-bbcor--bb11s2-adult
I am both a contact and a power hitter going into Babe Ruth, and we have to use BBCOR. Should I choose the Easton XL2 or the S2?
The Easton S2 is going to be better for you to use.
Whats the pop like on the S2 and XL2 compared to last years Surge?
The Easton Surge, Easton S2, and Easton XL2 all feature the THT100 alloy in the barrel so the pop in all 3 bats will be very comparable.
Out of the Easton bats which is the best for power hitters?
The Easton XL Series (XL1, XL2, XL3) are all designed to be end loaded with very large sweetspot. They made these bats with power hitters in mind.
I'm about 5'2 and 100lbs and I'm 13. I might be interested in buying the S2. Is that a good choice and what size should I get?
The Easton S2 is a great bat with a balanced swing weight. Based on your size, a 31" model would be recommended.
Does this bat or the 2013 Voodoo hit better?
The Easton S2 and the 2013 DeMarini Voodoo are both very high performing bats with a lot of pop. They are going to be very similar as far as performance goes. The S2 will be more balanced and the Voodoo will be slightly end loaded.
I was wondering my friend got the easton s2 and i have great bat speed would the xl2 be better for me?
If you have above average swing speed and strength, then the XL2 would be a great option due to it's endloaded feel.
Is this bat good for me? I am 95 lbs and 5'3. I am going to 8th but don't want to have to buy another bat in high school.
Yes, the Easton S2 would be a great option for you because the weight is distributed very evenly throughout the bat making it feel very light which will increase your bat speed.
Does the seaston s2 bbcor need break in?
The Easton S2 has an alloy barrel and will not require a break-in period.
I'm A 5'11 200lb power hitter, is the s2 the right bat for a power hitter?
If you're a power hitter with good strength and swing speed, I would recommend the XL2 over the S2, as the XL2 has an endloaded swing weight that is great for strong hitters.
My son is 15 - 5'6" 178lbs very fit. He has quick hands and a lot of power. Hit a lot of doubles and triples and one home run this year. He swings a 32" TPX EXO. But hit his only home run with a 33" Marucci Black. What type and length bat would he need?
Based on his height and weight we recommend a 32". If he had quite a bit of power the Easton XL2 BBCOR would be an excellent choice.
I am in high school I am 5,4 about 140, and i am a line drive hitter what size do you really recommend me on this Easton S2?
Based on your height and weight, a 31" Easton S2 is recommended.
I used this bat all season and liked it, but was wondering which bat in the speed series is best for a contact base hit hitter?
All three bats in the Speed Series will work great for contact hitters. Most contact hitters prefer two-piece bats, so you could consider the Easton S1 or the Easton S2. Here is a link to compare all the bats. http://www.justbats.com/compare/
Right now I have the Xl2 in 34 inches., I am 6'1" and 190 pounds. I don't get a fast enough swing speed with it. I am looking to get a new bat and go with either the s2 or Cf5. Or should i stick with the xl2 and get something shorter?
Based on your height and weight, a 33" Adult BBCOR model is recommended. I would suggest the S2. It's similar to the XL2, but with a much more balanced swing weight for quicker bat speed.
which is balanced more evenly the easton s3 s2 or s1?
All bats will be very balanced but the Easton s3 and the Easton s1 will be the most balanced.
I'm getting the S2 or the XL2. I'm mostly a contact hitter but I do supply some power also. Which bat do you think would be best for me? I'm also 5'10" and 170lbs. What size bat do you think would be best for me?
If you are mostly a contact hitter the Easton S2 is the better bat for you as it is more balanced. Given your height and weight a 33" - 34" bat would be best.
How large is the sweet spot on the Easton S2 compared to the S1?
The Easton S2 and the Easton S1 will have the same barrel size. The S2 has an aluminum barrel and the S1 will have a composite barrel.
Would the S2 or the S3 be better fit for an contact hitter with some power? And will the bats last more then a year?
Both the Easton S2 and the Easton S3 are bats with great weight distribution which is good for contact hitters. The main difference is that the Easton S2 is a two-piece hybrid design (composite handle/aluminum barrel) and the Easton S3 is a one-piece fully aluminum bat which is good for providing a little extra power. Here is a link to further compare the two bats. http://www.justbats.com/compare/
I'm 5'7" 145 pounds. I have always been a contact hitter, whether it's getting the ball down for a bunt or getting on by singles or putting the bat on the ball, basically a number 2 batter. In the S Series what bat would be best recommended for my kind of ball player? Along with the size length.
For that type of player, I would recommend the Easton S2. A 32" bat is suggested for your particular height and weight.
I am 6 feet tall and 155 pounds. What size bat would you reccomend for me?
I would recommend a 33" model. See our sizing chart if you need more help. http://www.justbats.com/bat-resource-guide/
Is it worth getting a two peice bat like the Easton S2?
The Easton S2 is great for hitters looking for a flex feel at contact, and two-piece bats are good for reducing vibration as well.
Is there an issue with the S2? I was leaning toward this bat since my son is a contact hitter and not a power hitter. The S3 seems to be more for power hitters.
Both are balanced bats designed for contact hitters. The Easton S2 will have more flex in it because it is a two-piece bat compared to the Easton S1 which is a one-piece.
Does this bat have a durability issue?
The Easton S2 is covered by Easton's full 12 month manufacturer's warranty.
I'm 13 years old, I'm 5'4'', I have a great swing speed . I was wondering which bat should I get? the Easton S2 or the Easton XL2. I can hit the ball good but I hit it in the non sweet spot most of the time.
Both the Easton S2 and the Easton XL2 would be great options for you. The S series is built more to enhance bat speed, whereas the XL series is designed to have an extended barrel . Here is a link to further compare the two bats. http://www.justbats.com/compare/
What is the real difference between the S2 and the S3?
The difference between the Easton S2 and the Easton S3 is that the Easton S2 is a two-piece hybrid design, which means it has a composite handle and aluminum barrel. The Easton S3 is a one-piece fully aluminum design. Here is a link to take a closer look. http://www.justbats.com/compare/
Would the S2 or the Marruci Black be better for a mainly contact hitter?
The Easton S2 BBCOR and the Marucci Black are two-piece bats, great for contact hitters. Both are excellent, balanced bats with a lot of pop. You really can't go wrong with either one.
Does the BB11S2 have the lowest M.O.I. out of all of the BBCOR bats?
Unfortunately, not all bats are tested for MOI and if they are, that information is not always released by the manufacturer. However, the Easton S1, S2 and S3 are 3 bats that would have some of the lowest MOI ratings on the market.
Would you recommend the Easton S2 or the RIP-IT Prototype? I'm a contact hitter but I've been doing pretty well with one piece bats. I've never used a two-piece bat.
Contact hitters normally use a two piece bat, however there is no rule that says you can't use a one piece. The Easton S2 BBCOR will be more balanced than the RIP-IT Prototype, which has a slightly end loaded feel.
I'm 13, 87 lbs, 5'2", and a contact hitter. Should I get the S2 or S3 and in what length and weight?
If you are a contact hitter, I would suggest going with the S2. The two-piece design of this bat will probably better suit your hitting style. Based on your height and weight, I would also suggest going with a 29 inch bat.
I'm 13 years old, weigh 85 lbs, and I'm 5'2". What length and weight should I get?
Based on your height and weight I would suggest a 29 inch bat. If you need more help in trying to find the right size of bat for you, feel free to use our bat coach feature located on our website.
I am a power hitter that uses bat speed and quick hands to generate most of my pop. Would I be better suited with the S series or the XL?
A good choice for you is any of the XL series bats as these have extended barrels, more end loaded feel and designed more for power hitters.
I am a power hitter but have the Easton S2. Will I still be able to hit 300-350 foot homeruns like I did last year?
Power hitters typically prefer one-piece bats, and the Easton S2 is a two-piece hybrid with a composite handle and alloy barrel. You'll still be able to reach the fences, but the S2 won't be as stiff as a one-piece bat and you'll lose a bit of bat head control.
I had an easton speed before and really liked it. I am a gap hitter and bat leadoff. Which bat would be better, this one or the S1?
If you really like the Stealth Speed, I would recommend the S1. Like the Speed, the S1 is a two piece all composite bat.
I'm 5'2" and 95 lbs. in high school and a contact hitter. What would be the best bat for me?
For your size and hitting style, I recommend a 29" 26oz., two-piece BBCOR bat.
I am a contact hitter, usually batting lead off. I want a balanced bat with good pop. What would be the best option between the Exogrid 2, Omaha, Demarini CF5, or this?
Two-piece bats like the Easton S2 BBCOR are great for contact hitters. The Easton S2 BBCOR will be the most balanced of all the bats listed above.
I am 6'1 about 160, I have fast hands, I can be a contact hitter and I can hit for power. Would this bat or the Xl2 be better?
If you have fast hands with above average swing speed, the XL2 may be a better option for you as it is designed for players with above average bat speed and strength.
Is this bat's sweet spot small?
No. The BB11S2 has a good size sweetspot with excellent pop.
What are the similarities between this Easton S2 and the Easton Omen?
The Easton Omen has a composite handle and barrel, while the S2 has a composite handle and an alloy barrel. Both bats are pretty balanced as well.
Which Easton bat that is out on the market would you recommend? Price is not a factor, but it would be nice if it were cheaper. I just want a bat with good pop and even balance throughout.
I would probably recommend any bats from Easton's new Power Brigade series. The S3 and the XL3 are going to be the lowest priced out of that series are very good bats. These bats are some of our top selling bats and are definitely worth the investment.
I am 5'5'' 150 lbs and 14. What bat is better for me the S2 or XL2?
Well, that depends on whether you want a balanced or an end loaded bat. These bats will perform the same. However, the XL2 has an end loaded feel to it and the S2 is a very balanced bat.
Hi, I'm 5'7, 13 years old, and 125 pounds, I'm stronger than most of the kids in my age group (13-14). I was wondering if this bat, the Demarini Vexxum, or the EXOGRID 2 would be the best fit for me? Thanks.
This depends on what kind of hitter you are. if you are more of a contact hitter, I would suggest going with a two piece bat like the S2 or the Vexxum. These two bats are very similar and will perform just about the same. However, if you are more of a power hitter, I would go with a one piece bat like the EXOGRID 2.
How long does this bat take to break in? What is the best way to do this?
This bat has an alloy barrel and does not require a break in. Only composite barrel bats will require a break in. This bat will be hot right out of the wrapper when you receive it!
I am 6'1" 145 lbs, I'm a contact hitter. Would i be better off with the S2 or XL2? Also, how much longer and weight does the XL Series have on the barrel for a 33" 30oz.?
If you are a contact hitter, I would lean toward the S2 as it will have a lighter swing weight. I would say the XL will feel about .5 ounces heaver towards the end of the barrel
This bat is a half and half with the handle being composite. Is the handle considered the entire first piece of the bat that is not the barrel? How does a composite handle affect performance?
The composite handle is he first piece. The composite handle provides more flex than a one piece alloy bat.
I liked the weight of the stealth and at 5 feet 8 inches and 160 lbs I'm thinking the S1 or S2 might be best. I also like the two piece bat better. What do you recommend?
Both are great bats. If you liked the Stealth, the S1 may be a little more comparable.
What is the big difference between the S1 and S2, other than price?
The S1 is a two-piece bat that is all composite. The S2 is a two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle.
Would you suggest the Omen or the S2 for a contact hitter?
I would suggest either one for a contact hitter. You can't go wrong with either one.
I am 5'7 130 lb. and I am a contact hitter you know in the gaps which bat in the Brigade Series is best for me?
Two piece bats like the S2 will be the best bat for a contact hitter.
my son is under 100 lbs in middle school ball-does the s2 come in a 30"? if not, what do you recommend?
The S2 does not come in a 30 inch. However the Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 Adult is available in a 30 inch.
i am a contact hitter but have a fast swing speed. would u recomend ghis bat or the xl2. and between the s2/xl2 and the s3/xl3 what r the main differences and why is the 3 better. also would you recommend this bat or the marucci black
I would recommend the S2, it will help you increase swing speed. The S2 is going to be a two-piece bat with a composite handle. The S3 is going to be a one-piece all aluminum alloy.
which one you think is better or you recommend betwen s2 and s3?
Both these bats are going to have an aluminum alloy barrel. The S2 is going to be a two-piece model, this will give the bat more of a flex to it when it is being swung. The S3 is going to have more of a stiff feel, because it is a one-piece bat
not so much for this bat but is this a big barrel and are most bbcor bats big barrels or no?
Yes, this is a big barrel. The barrel diameter will be 2 5/8".
How would u compare this bat to the easton BNC2 Omen BBCOR?
The Omen is last years top of the line bat made by Easton. It would be a two piece composite. The S2 is going to be the replacement for the Surge, which will feature a composite handle and alloy barrel.
The BNC2 is a Two-Piece Full composite bat. The BB11S2 is going to be a Two-Piece bat with a composite handle and aluminum alloy barrel. Composite bats are going to out perform alloy bats the more and more they are used.
im a sort of a contact hitter is this one or the s3 better for me?
The S2 is a two-piece bat that will offer more flex than the S3. This means it is probably better suited for contact hitters.
What is the main difference between the s2 and s3?
The S2 is a two piece bat with a composite handle and alloy barrel. The S3 is a one piece all alloy bat.
what is the temperature limits of this bat....how cold can it be without the bat being damaged when hitting?
Most manufacturer's recommend you limit the bat's use when it is below 55 or 60 degrees out. This doesn't mean that the bat will become damaged if it's 54 degrees, it is just that the likely hood of that happening is higher. I would just be careful when it's that cold and try not to use it as much.
i can hit for power and im good contact hitter. what the best bat
This would be a great bat for an all around hitter.
Between the S2, 2012 Voodoo, Marucci Black, and MC2... Which has the best pop and which do you recommend for a 6"2 175 pound powerful contact hitter?
Generally speaking, power hitters usually prefer 1 piece bats. These are all 2 piece bats.
My son is 14 5' 11" and 175 lbs he is a gap hitter. What do you think is best for him?
The S2 would be a good option. Easton's speed series is definitely for hitters who are looking for control, and that is what gap hitters are all about.
How does the sweet spot of this bat compare to other brands? and also how does the balance of the xl series compare to others?
If you want more balance the S2 is the way to go. The S2 has a very nice sweet spot!
I had a Easton surge composite last year and loved it, is the S2 or the XL2 closer to the Surge
The S2 is the closest to the Surge.
Personally, I am in my 4th year of playing and first year of highschool ball, Im still working on becoming a better hitter im 5,7 and 130 lbs i consider myself a contact hitter with not alot of power so i need a bat with alot of balance and pop thats easy to swing yet still supplies alot of pop would you recommend the marucci black or this bat?
I lean toward the Easton on this one. It has a nice balance and great pop. The Black is also a great bat, just slightly more end weighted.
These bats have the same construction and have generally balanced swing weights.
Is Easton going to make an S2 -5 bat for this year
No. They only make a -5 in the XL3 SL11X35.
my son swung the easton BST10 the last two years with great success very good singles and doubles hitter .... can i go with the S3 .... strikes out less than 10 % of time
Yes, the S3 would be a good model to go with, it is not very comparable to the BST10 because it is going to have an alloy barrel and the BST10 is a full composite bat
Why does this bat not have a ping sound when made contact with the ball on the sweetspot?
Because the barrel is alloy. Alloy makes a more ping sound, where composite has a more dull thump sound.
Last year i used the first surge(white/yellow) and i liked it. which bat is most similar to it?
This one, the S2 is the closest to the Surge.
Besides price, what is the difference between the S1 and S2??
The S1 is a two piece all composite bat, the S2 is a two piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle.
What is the difference in the easton s1 s2 and s3 bats?
The S1 is a one piece composite bat. The S2 is a half and half bat. The S3 is an aluminum bat.
My son is in 10th grade, 5'8" is a contact hitter, with a quick swing and needs an evenly weight distributed bat. Which Easton BBCOR would you recommend?
This one, the S@ would be ideal for him.
Which bat is most comparable to the old easton sv12, swing weight wise?
The SV12 had a low swing weight, making it most comparable to the the Easton S2, model BB11S2.
Which bat is most comparable to the Easton SV12 Ozone 90?
Yes, this is going to be comparable to the SV12
What bat is better the Easton s1 or s2? And are two piece bats good?
Both of these will be good bats. The S1 has a composite barrel which tends to give the player more pop.
I`m 13 years old , 5`1 and 101 lbs. I`m kind of in the middle between contact and power hitter...which bats for me????
This S2 could be good for the contact hitter in you. Or possibly the S3 for the power hitter.

i am really tall and have a fast swing but not the best homerun hitter i am mor of a contaact hitter which bat would you profer
Then the Easton Speed series would be a good option for you. The XL series is going to have a slight endload feel to it which more of the power hitters prefer.
I am 13 1/2 years old 5'-9" 155 lbs in the 8th grade and have a lot of power and very quick hands. I have been using a DeMarini CF5 and like the feel and weight distribution, but I am not satisfied with the power. Is there a bat with similar feel that may have a little more pop?
The S2 is a good choice, but if you are a power hitter you might look at the S3 too.
My son is 14yrs old his heigth is 5'5 about 145lb which bat do u recommend because of his height & weight
Height and weight wise, he fits into a 31-28 or 32-29.
i used to swing the sv12, is the s2 or xl2 more like it, i more of a contact hitter but i do hit HR sometimes
It's been a while since I've seen the SV!2, and if my memory is correct, it was a 1 piece alloy. If that is the case the Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 Adult would be your best bet.
I see you have this bat in only 32, 33, and 34. Will you ever have a 31 in stock. if so when?
Yes, we are expecting some. We have not received a delivery date as of right now. But feel free to keep checking our site, they will be posted as soon as they come in.
is this bat a good bat for swinging to the fence with. i have a 2010 surge that i hit the fence with all the time going anywhere from 300 to 330 being 13 years old and all the reviews are great saying for power hitters but i want to be sure before i decide
The S2 was developed towards the speed type hitters, to help transfer that speed into power. The XL2 series was designed for the power hitters to generate more speed, equaling more distance. So it depends what kind of hitter you are now. If your a power hitter I would look at the XL2, and if your a speed placement hitter I would look at the S2.
Which would be better for a person who mostly hits double but tends to have lots of power the S2 or XL2?
If you can handle an endloaded bat, then I would go with the XL2. Otherwise I would stick with the S2.
Between the Easton S2 and the Demarini VooDoo BBCOR, which bat feels more balanced or less end loaded? My son is 12 and will be playing middle school ball that requires BBCOR certified bats.
Both of these bats will have a balanced weight. They are not end-loaded. Both of those bats will be good BBCOR options.
What Easton BBCOR bat would you reccomend for a hitter who hits line-drives to the gaps?
The S2 is going to be the best for contact hitters.
Which of the power brigade bats would u recommend for a player who is a line drive hitter and tends to hit into the gaps
I think the Speed series would be a better fit for a contact/doubles type of hitter.
when you get a hit with the s2, or s3, will you feel the contact, or will it be more of a nonexistent hit?
Both bats have great balance and feel. I've hit with both and can say that even though I felt it in my hands, making contact felt a lot softer compared to most BBCOR bats. They definitely swing great.
What has more "pop," the Easton S2 or the Marucci Cat5 squared?
These are both going to have great pop. It will come down to preference on what type of bat you want. The S2 is a two piece bat and the Cat 5 is all alloy. Both are lightweight and balanced.
For someone who is more of a contact hitter than a power hitter, would the S2 or the XL2 be a better choice.
The S2 is going to having a light swing weight and be a very balanced bat. The XL2 will have a slightly larger sweet spot with a slight endloaded feel to it. I would recommend the S2 for you.
S series vs XL series and what would you recommend for power hitters?
The XL series is more endloaded and would be suited best for power hitters.
Since both the S2 and Easton Omen are both BBCOR, will the Omen have more Pop, since it is a full composite bat rather than the composite/alloy that the S2 is?
The Omen and S1 are going to have a little more pop to them since they are all composite. Both the S1 and S2 are going to have excellent bat speed.
My son is 9th grade. 5'4" 130 pounds contact hitter with great bat speed. Which bat would be the fit.
The S2 would be the best for a contact hitter.
which bat would you reccomend S2, vector, omen, and the xl2. i have been more of a contact hitter but i need a bat with a lot of pop. i have enough strength to hit shots
I will be honest with you, each one of those bats offers something different. But for what you described, the BB112S sounds like a good fit.
i'm thinking that the s2 is more like the old easton stealth than the xl2 is, am i correct?
It is more like the Stealth Speed line, yes.
Which bat in the new easton series would be most like the tpx H2?
The S2 would be the most similar. Both have a high quality alloy barrel and a stiff flex composite handle.
I will occasionally get a home run or an extra base hit but mostly singles what bat should i get the s2, s3, xl3, or the xl2.
I would go with the S2 or S3 if you are mostly a line drive hitter.
For a 13 yr old would a 32 in s2 or a s3 fit
13 year old's don't normally swig -3 bats. If they are required to have a -3 BBCOR bat then I would get the smallest size in the S2.
Is this S2 stiff handle? Or does easton have two like they did for the old stealth series?
The S2 us a two piece bat so it is going to have more flex than the S3 which is a one piece alloy bat.
Generally 2 piece bats, with composite handles and alloy barrels have a little more flex to them. Just as 1 piece bats are usually stiffer.
Because this bat has a lighter swing weight, does that mean the barrel is smaller than usual? About how long is the barrel?
The barrel isn't really shorter, it's where the weight is distributed that makes it swing lighter. The XL line is an extended barrel meaning the weight is down farther on the barrel, which makes it feel a little heavier.
I have been on line researching your you new line of bats for my son.he is 5'10 and weihs 155lb. He is not a power hitter so I believe the BB11S2 would be a correct fit for him , correct me if I am wrong. Thanks David.
Yes, the Easton S2 BB11S2 would be a nice fit for your son.
Last season my 15 year old son used an Easton Stealth BCN9 bat. Which of the new Easton's would be the most similar?
This one would be pretty similar to the bcn9.
I am a hitter that is known for both my deep shots, but i mostly hit balls in the gap. is this or the xl2 a better bat for me?
This will really depend on if you want an end loaded bat or a balanced bat. The S2 is lighter and more balanced giving you faster swing speed. The XL2 is going to be end loaded, normally used for power hitters.
Does this Easton BBCOR S2 have any "ping" when you hit the ball?
Yes, this bat will still have the ping sound when it is hit with
When will the 31 inch 28 ounce bat size be available for the Easton S2 BBCOR bat?
Yes. We should be receiving the 31/28 the first two weeks of November 2011.
Which bat would be best for a contact hitter that sometimes shows power.. The Easton S2, the rip it prototype 2, the marucci cat 5, the easton surge, or the new anderson?
It is really going to go down to personal preference. If you give us a call at 1-866-321-2287 we will be able to narrow down the choices for you.
I would like to know when the Easton S1 (composite) will be available?
The S1 is currently on our website. http://www.justbats.com/product/easton-s1--yb11s1-youth/14430/
Do you know if select leagues such as USSSA or requiring BBCOR Bats? Also, what about middle schools in Tennessee?
BBCOR bats are currently only for high school or college. It's always a good idea to check with a coach or league offical for bat rules.
Which is correct? One piece is for power hitters and two piece is contact hitters, or the other way around?
My mistake we have had some confusion. One piece bats are more for power hitters, two piece bats are for contact hitters because they have more flex.
If i have a quick and powerful swing is this the bat for me???
Very much so! This bat is designed for this type of swing. Easton's theory with this bat is SPEED = POWER
Will the s2 be a good baseball bat for me if i am a power hitter or would it be one of the bats from the xl series?
Both bats are designed for added power. The XL is designed for more of a power hitter due to the massive barrel.
So does Easton have a 2 piece, non-stiff BBCOR bat for contact hitters?
Yes the s3 or any of the 1 piece baseball bats
if im a power hitter with a quick swing am i looking at the s2 or xl2 ? and whats the difference between the xl2/s2 as opposed to the xl1/s1 ?
XL1 is a youth bat for Little League play, XL2 is an adult bat used in high school and college play. Same with the S1 and S2. The 1 is a 2 1/4" barrel for youth leagues. the 2 is the 2 5/8" barrel for high school and college play. The XL2 has an extra long barrel design for massive sweet spot and expanded hitting zone. The S2 is a speed design which gives the player faster swing speeds for increased power.
My son is a 8th grader 5' 90 lbs. he needs a 31" bat,and needs a -3,what do you think would he benefit from.
At his size, if he is a contact hitter, he maybe best suited in a two piece bat that has some flex to it. This will allow the bat to have some flex as he is coming through the zone and create more power for him.
I'm a little confused, Mark, the expert, answered a question about flex. He said the S2 is a stiff flex and should be used by power hitters and a 2 piece bat should be used by contact hitters. The S2 is a 2 piece bat so what kind of hitter should use it????
I'm sorry about that. I should have mentioned that normally a 2 piece is best for contact hitters because there is some flex to the bat. I was told by our product management team that the S2's handle is very similar to the older Surge's handle, which is a stiff flex handle. Stiff flex handle's perform very similar to one piece bats because there is very little flex. Both one piece bats and two piece bats with stiff handle's are good for power hitters.
for a power hitter which is better this or the s3. and what is the difference between the xl2 and s2
The S2 is a two piece design which is for power hitters, the S3 is a one piece for contact hitters. The XL2 has a longer barrel and the S2 has a lower M.O.I. which means faster swing speeds.
So for the contact hitter what Easton BBCOR bat are you recommending? I have a quick swing, but I'm not very big.
For contact hitter the S3 will be a better option. The S3 is a one piece design which is for contact hitters, two piece bats are more for power hitters
this bat compared to the cat 5 and Anderson ignnite. which is best?
This is going to be one of the hottest bats on the market. This bat is going to be the bat that replaces the BBCOR Omen. The BB11S2 will have some of the best pop out of all the BBCOR bats on the market.
i have a short but hard swing not so much speed though, which of the 6 power brigade bats should i get ??
Personally with a short swing a bat can't correct that, but since you said you have quick bat speed, I would get the S2 Bat
Why does this bat come in only 33 and 34 in.?
As of 9/13 we only have those sizes in stock. When we get more in stock there will be options for those.
Will this bat be legal for the 2012 high school season in TN?
Yes, this bat will be legal for high school play. In most states high school players can only use BBCOR bats.
Is this bat like the new omen bbcor model?
No, this bat will have an alloy barrel. The Omen has a composite barrel.
my son is a 13 yr old starting his first year of legion ball and 8th grade ball. He has a long swing. Which Easton bbcor bat would you recommend.
This is going to be one of the hottest bats on the market right now. This bat is going to be using all the newest technologies. This bat is testing as one of the hotter bats out there.
well i want to know if you recomend this bat and if you can send it to Mexico city?
The S2 is a very high quality bbcor just release by Easton. It uses th THT100 Alloy in its two piece design. We can only ship to locations inside the US.
Are these bats regular flex or stiff flex ? If there is a choice what are the major reasons to pick stiff or regular? Thanks, Swing Hard.
The S2 is a stiff flex handel. If you have a very quick swing speed and are a power hitter you will want to have a bat with a stiffer handel. On the other hand if you have a slower swing speed and are more of contact hitter, a two piece bat with more of a regular flex handel will suite you better.
