Questions and Answers for Easton XL3 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: JBB14X3
My son uses an Easton 28" 18 oz. 2 1/4" barrel. What is a good big barrel for him, size and weight? He hit 5 home runs with his bat.
If he liked the feel of the older XL3 bat model, Easton just released a new one. The 2015 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15X39) will have a big barrel and be a great choice. It will have a barrel diameter of 2 5/8". Also, this model is a -9. Here is a link for you to see all of the rest of Easton's big barrel bats in his sizing: http://www.justbats.com/products/baseball%20bats~youth%20big%20barrel/vendor~easton/?sortBy=TotalSales%20Descending&size=24
We currently own the 2014 Easton XL3 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat JBB14X3. We need to move up from the 28" 18 oz version of this bat. What do you recommend? We would like to go to a 29" 19 oz, if possible in Easton.
I would suggest looking into the 2014 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14S310B) and the 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310B). Both bats will have a one piece alloy structure, a balanced swing weight, and a 2 3/4" barrel diameter similar to your 2014 Easton XL3 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (JBB14X3). Also, they are both available in a 29" 19 oz. model.
My son has the 2013 XL3 Junior Big Barrel. He borrowed his friend's V12. He seems to hit better with that bat. Did they replace the V12 with another bat? I can't find it.
For the Junior Big Barrel category, the 2014 Easton XL3 (JBB14X3) Junior Big Barrel would be the most comparable bat to the V12 (BV22) in their current lineup. However, I would say that the barrel length of the XL3 model would be slightly longer, but both bats are -10 designs. For a more balanced feel, the next most comparable bat Easton would have to offer would be the (SL14S310B) Senior League model: http://goo.gl/APRmt6.
My son plays 8U and has an Easton S1 Baseball Bat: JBB13S1 Junior Big Barrel. I think it may be defective as it has zero pop to it. I am going to exchange the bat as I am very unhappy with it. I am trying to decide if I should go with a senior big barrel or a junior big barrel and what size. He has a 27" 15 oz. bat now. He is an average to above average size 8 year old now. Would the Junior Big Barrel XL3 be a good choice?

I'm looking at the S1 and the XL3. I am not sure what bat would be better for my 6 year old. He is moving up to coach pitch. He is a power hitter with quick hands. He's 45 inches tall and weighs about 55 pounds.
Both the 2014 Easton XL3 (JBB14X3) and the Easton S1 Baseball Bat JBB13S1 are nice options. The major difference would be the weighting. The XL3 would be 2 ounces heavier in the same size as the S1. Given the information you have given about your player I would recommend the XL3.
My 5 yr old son will be playing coach pitch for the first time. He just finished tee ball for the first time and used a 24 inch Easton MAKO.
