Am I able to use this in Babe Ruth?

No, the Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is not approved for play in Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth requires all composite barrel bats to be BBCOR certified.

Is this bat legal for Senior League division of the Little League association?

The Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is not legal for play in the Senior League Division of Little League. All bats used in the Senior League Division must have the BBCOR certification stamp. The SL14X18 features the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp and is not legal.

I was wondering if the 32" will come out on the drop 8?

The Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is the 2014 model and it has been discontinued by Easton. The sizes on the website are the only sizes we have left for the bat. If you want a 32" model, you will need to go with the 2015 model. The 2015 model is the 2015 Easton XL1 Senior League -8 Baseball Bat (SL15X18).

My son is 4'10" and 100 lbs. He has swung a 30" S3 for the last year and generated very good power with it. What size would you recommend for him?

For a player of his size, our bat coach would recommend the Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) in a 31" 23 oz. model. Additionally, the XL1 does feature an end-loaded swing weight while the S3 he has been using has a more balanced feel.

Is this bat less end loaded than the 2015 XL1? Is there ever going to be an -8 S1?

The Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) will have the same end load as the 2015 model. At this time we are unsure if Easton will ever be making a -8 S1 bat.

My son is 5'6" and 130 lbs. He is 11 years old playing 12U. Is the -8, Easton XL1 an OK size for him? My other son swung a -10 at this age. But he wasn't the same size or a power hitter.

Yes, the -8 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) would be a fine bat and size for him. -10 bats are more common at age 11, but with his current size should be perfect for him.

Brandon Expert ·Mar 09, 2015

What size bat should I use, I am 5 foot 1 inch and 93 pounds and 13 years old?

We would recommend getting the Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) in a 32 inch based on your height and weight.

I am 5 foot 11 and weigh 160 pounds and have a fast swing. I can hit pretty hard. Should I get the Mako or the XL1?

Which bat you should get would depend on your preference of style. If you like a more end-loaded feel, I would go with the Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18). If you like a more balanced feel, I would go with the 2015 Easton MAKO TORQ Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK8T) or the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14MK9). Both could work well for you.

I'm 6' about 145 lbs. I hit mostly for contact. Would you recommend one of the S-series or the XL1?

The Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is going to be intended for a power hitter. For a gap hitter such as yourself, we would recommend balanced model such as the 2015 Easton S1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S110).

My coach said that Senior League bats are not allowed in 'O' Zone division and that bats must have the USSSA certification (1.15 stamp) for Dixie Youth Baseball. I've noticed that Senior League bats have the USSSA certification (1.15 BPF). I have since purchased a Youth bat and it is also is certified by USSSA (1.15 BPF). Would the Easton XL1 Senior League model be allowed for use in my league?

After viewing the bat rules for the The 'O' Zone division of Dixie Youth baseball, it looks like the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) and all other Senior League bats will be allowed if they have the USSSA certification (1.15 BPF) and a maximum barrel diameter of a 2 5/8".

I am a big home run hitter. Is this bat good for home-runs? Or should I go with the mako?

The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is a two-piece full composite bat featuring the IMX composite barrel with a massive swing spot. The SL14X18 features an end-load, which we typically recommend for power hitters. The Mako will be more suited to contact hitters as well as feature a well-balanced design.

Joe Expert ·Dec 16, 2014

do you have this bat 2 3/4 barrel?

We apologize, but JustBats.com does not carry the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) in a 2 3/4" barrel diameter.

My son is 12 years old. He is 49 inches tall and weighs 81 pounds. Last season he used a 2013 Easton S3 30 inch 20 ounce and I think he can handle a 30 inch 22 ounce model for 12U. I am considering the XL1 and the CF7. Can you tell me the difference in barrel or sweet spot length? Also, do these weigh in at spec? I've read a review that said the XL1 weighed 2.5 ounces over spec. Any recommendation?

Most models of alloy or composite barrel bats like the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) or the 2015 DeMarini CF7 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) will not weigh exactly as listed on the bat as they are weighed earlier in the manufacturing process before grip tape, graphics, and sometimes even the end cap have been added. Different amounts of glue or epoxy used to construct the bat and even adding the knob jewel that lists the weight can cause it to fluctuate to be inaccurate. The idea is that a bat listed as a 30 inch 22 ounce bat will feel similar in weight to other models that size rather than be pin point accurate on the weight. The XL1 will have a more extended barrel than the CF7 by design. This gives it a bigger sweet spot but also gives it a more end-loaded feel. This will make the XL1 feel heavier than the CF7 and make it more difficult to swing overall. The trade off is that if you can swing it well you may be able to produce more power by focusing the mass of the bat to the hitting area.

Will you guys have any of these in a -5 soon?

We are not expecting any more shipments of the -5 size of the 2014 version of the XL1. For the 2014 models we only have the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) -8 available. We do have the 2015 Easton XL1 Senior League -5 Baseball Bat (SL15X15) available in a -5 size though.

What will be the difference between this bat and the 2015 XL1 bat aside from the color? Will the 2015 model have a 31 inch -8 available?

We currently have that size of the 2015 Easton XL1 Senior League -8 Baseball Bat (SL15X18) available. The 2015 XL1 and the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) will be very similar in terms of design and performance. The only major differences are mainly cosmetic in nature.

Is this a big barrel? I am 12 years old, and I want a big barrel.

Yes, the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat: (SL14X18) is a big barrel bat, and features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. Any bat listed as "Senior League" on our website will be a big barrel bat. Therefore, this model will fit what you are looking for.

My son is 10 and will have to use BBCOR bat in 2 years for school ball. I want him to transition to the heavier bats gradually. He has been using a 29" 19 oz S3. All the charts indicate he needs a 30" bat but he is hitting his 29" just fine. Would you recommend a 30" 22 oz. or 29" 21 oz. for the transition?

That will be a matter of preference. The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) features an end loaded swing weight, so not only will he be gaining at least two ounces with the -8 size, but there will be additional weight in the head of the bat. Generally, you want to swing the heaviest and longest bat that you can comfortably and consistently control, so if he has done well with a 29", maybe staying with that length and easing him to a heavier bat may be a great option to consider. Ultimately, sizing is preferential, so it will be up to him and what size feels best.

Tessa Expert ·Sep 21, 2014

I am 4'11" and 95 lbs. Is a 30" 22 oz. good size for me?

The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) may be slightly heavy for your size. Typically, 12-13 year old players use this size. If you are that age, it would be appropriate.

Brandon Expert ·Sep 16, 2014

Is the 29" 21 oz. size too big for my son who's 4'4" and 72 pounds?

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 28" 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18). Sizing is preferential though, so if he would feel more comfortable going with a 29" bat, that is definitely something to take into consideration as well.

I am considering buying my son the new XL1 31" -8. The last two seasons he used the 30" -8 and did well. He is currently 116 lbs and 5'3" tall. Do you think the 31" -8 will be too heavy?

Based on his height and weight, we recommend moving him up to the 31" model in the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18). Moving up an extra inch an extra ounce will be a smooth transition for him.

Jason Expert ·Aug 31, 2014

Are there any differences between the 2013 and 2014 XL1 models in the -8? Or is the difference just cosmetic?

The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat: (SL14X18) was re-designed cosmetically, however, this is ultimately going to be the biggest difference.

Merritt Expert ·Aug 25, 2014

How much longer would the XL1's barrel be compared to the 2014 COMBAT Wanted -8?

The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) and the COMBAT Wanted -8 will have similar barrel lengths. The XL1 may have close to 1" longer though.

Comparing the 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X18) and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB), I have read here that the XL1 will have a slightly longer barrel for an extended sweet spot. Assuming both bats are 30", how much more is slightly?

The Easton XL1 (SL14X18) will have about a 1/4" longer barrel in the 30" size than the Easton MAKO (SL14MKB).

I am 5'1" and going in to 13u in the fall. I swing a 30" 20 oz. bat and do not want to make a jump all the way to a drop 3 in the spring. I am looking at his bat. What do you think i should do?

The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is a great bat if you are a power hitter and it would be wise to move closer to a -3 model as soon as you can. The XL1, however is an end loaded bat. That would be an advantage if you are a power hitter. If you are more of a contact hitter I would look at something like the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFR) which is also a -8, but balanced.

Dixie boys baseball rules state composite barrels must have stamp BBCOR .50 on bat. Does this one have that stamp certification?

No, the only bats that will have the BBCOR stamp on them are the adult -3 bats. Since the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is a senior league bat this would not be approved.

I am about 5'1" and a cleanup hitter. I am looking for a bat with serious pop. Should I go with a MAKO or an XL1? What size?

With regard to pop, the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) and the Easton MAKO will have the same amount of pop since they both have to meet the 1.15 BPF standard. It will actually depend on you and what bat best suits your hitting style. If you are more of a power hitter, the end loaded design of the XL1 may be the better option for you. If you want to work on bat speed and control, the MAKO may better suit you since the balanced swing weight will be easier to work with and control. Sizing is mostly based on both your height and weight. Check out our Bat Coach for more information on sizing: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

Would this bat be good for a lead off hitter who doesn't hit for power?

The 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14X18) is going to be recommended for more of a power hitter because of the end loaded feel of the bat.

Cooper Expert ·Jul 15, 2014

My son has an Easton S1 29/19 and is a gap hitter who wants more power. What bat should he get?

As a contact gap hitter, I would probably recommend looking for a balanced two-piece model. The 2014 Easton S2 Senior League Baseball Bat: (SL14S210) will incorporate a hybrid design. The THT100 Scandium Alloy material used in the barrel will be able to provide a lot of great power hot out of the wrapper. This model will be great for players looking to hit for power, but will also still feature characteristics favorable for a contact-hitter.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 10, 2014

I am 5'2", and last year I swung a very end-loaded 22 oz bat, but handled it pretty well. Do you think that moving up to a 23 oz bat will be too much to handle?

Based on your previous experience with an end-load, I do not think moving up and ounce will be too detrimental to your swing speed. Even though the 2014 Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat: (SL14X18) incorporates an end-load, it will not be over bearing.

Merritt Expert ·Jul 10, 2014

The 2014 Easton MAKO: (SL14MK9) is not offered in a -8, unlike the 2014 Easton XL1: (SL14X18). The closest size to the 2014 Easton XL1: (SL14X18) is the -9 offered in the 2014 Easton MAKO: (SL14MK9).

I am 5'1 112 I swing a 2013 s1 I have good bat speed and quick hands I wonder if this is to heavy

The 2014 Easton XL1: (SL14X18) will be slightly heavier at the end of the barrel. If you like the feel of the S1, which is more balanced, the XL series will have a different weight distribution. It will be more end loaded. Generally, end loaded bats are favored more by power hitters. However, this particular model will only have a slight end loaded feel. I don't think this particular model would be too heavy for you, but it just depends on what you feel most comfortable swinging. Balanced bats will have their weight more evenly distributed, and end loaded bats will be more top heavy.

i have an average bat speed, and i was using the s3 in drop 10 last season, and i have never gotten a composite bat, does composite have good pop,i a strong for my age, would this be the bat for me

Composite bats have great pop just like alloy bats. The 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X18) bat is more for a power hitter. This bat will be slightly end-loaded so it will be heavier than a balanced bat. We would recommend to staying with a more balanced bat such as the 2014 Easton S1 (SL14S110).

Kyle Expert ·Mar 29, 2014

Which bat has more pop: the 2014 MAKO big barrel or the 2014 XL1 big barrel?

The 2014 Easton XL1 (SL14X18) and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) are both very high performing bats. They both use top of the line composite materials. The XL1 will have a slightly longer barrel for an extended sweet spot.

What has more end load: the Voodoo OVERLORD or the Easton XL1? Which has more pop?

The 2014 Easton XL1: SL14X18 Senior League has and end loaded swing weight comparable to the new DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD. The main difference is the Easton will feature a two-piece composite design, whereas the OVERLORD has a composite handle and aluminum barrel. Both have good pop, but the Easton will need to be broken-in to be game ready.

Besides the -8 vs -9 weight, what else is different about the Easton SL14X18 and the SL14MK9? What kind of hitter is the MK9 better suited for? Will they feel different?

The 2014 Easton XL1: SL14X18 Senior League is an end loaded two-piece bat. It is designed for a power hitter. The Easton MAKO -9 is a balanced two-piece bat, better suited for a contact hitter who needs to increase their bat speed.

If I am normally early on the ball, should I get a -8 or -5?

This depends on a couple different factors. The 2014 Easton XL1: SL14X18 Senior League will be more end-loaded than other models. If you are transitioning from a balanced, -10 bat, I would recommend going with the -8. If you are going to be transitioning to a BBCOR model soon, I would recommend the -5.

If your player is big and strong with fast bat speed, what is best the XL Series or the S series?

The 2014 Easton XL1: SL14X18 Senior League and the rest of the XL-Series is typically preferred by power hitters with good bat speed, as it has an extended barrel, heavier length to weight ratios, and an end loaded feel to put more mass behind the ball. The S-Series is intended for contact hitters to increase bat speed, as the series has a balanced swing weight and lighter length to weight ratios.
