What is the difference between the SL16MK8 and the SL17MK8?

Not much changed from the 2016 model to the 2017 model. Easton claims they improved the swing weight of the 2017 model over the 2016 model.

My son is 5'2 and 125lbs. His coach has recommended he get a 31 in. Is this bat going to be too light for him?

This -8 bat would be fine for players age 11-14. We don't know the strength of your player or other factors that influence the weight they would need, so can't really recommend exact weights for players.

My son is 13 years old. 5'9" and 220 pounds. What size bat do you recommend? Thanks.

Based off the information you have provided, I would recommend swinging a 32 inch bat with a -5 drop weight. The Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 features a -8 drop weight so I would recommend looking at the Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK5 with a -5 drop weight. The only difference in these two bats will be 3 ounces in weight.

My son is 13 years old. Weighs 108 lbs and is 5' tall. He is currently using a 31" MAKO. What would you recommend for this bat?

Based upon your player's height, weight and size of bat recently used; I would recommend using a 31" or 32" bat with a -8 length-to-weight ratio. I think this Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8) would certainly be a bat to consider as long as the end-loaded feel on this bat is something he can handle.

My son is 4'8" and 64 lbs in the Pony league. What size do you recommend for him? Why would you need a set of bats?

Based on your son's height and weight we would recommend a 29"/19 ounce bat for him. The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 would be a good option. He would not necessarily need a set of bats.

Hi. My son is 5' 5" at about 110lbs. He's going to be 13 yrs old in a few months. Being this is an end loaded bat. Does it make the bat heavier ? What size will be good for him ?

The end loaded swing weight of the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 does make it heavier to swing since more of the overall mass of the bat is shifted toward the barrel to provide more power for stronger players who can handle the added swing weight. Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 31" bat.

Will this bat comply with the new little leagues rules coming out for the 2018 Season?

Leagues playing under USA standards will require a bat with the USABat stamp. The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 does not feature this stamp, only the USSSA thumb print stamp. Bats that will comply with the USABat standard will be available in September of this year.

What is the difference between the Mako Xl and the regular Mako? Also, would a drop 8 32 inch be too heavy for this bat?

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 is end loaded, whereas the Easton Mako is balanced. Without knowing what size of bat your player has swung most recently, I'm not sure if this bat would be too heavy for your player.

Logan Expert ·May 21, 2017

When you hit the ball does the bat make a pinging noise or is it clean and a nice pop?

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8) is a composite bat so it is going to have more of a thumping sound rather than the "ping" sound of an aluminum bat.

Carter Expert ·Apr 26, 2017

Is this bat okay for 50/70?

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 would not be legal for Intermediate (50/70) play as the barrel is composite. Only BBCOR certified bats are legal when the barrel is composite.

Is this certified for Babe Ruth 13-15?

To my knowledge, this 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8) will not be legal for use in the 13-15 year old division of Babe Ruth Baseball as it does not have BBCOR certification.

My son is 13 5/7 and ways 100 lbs. He has very long arms. I feel like this is such a stupid question. What is the difference between a youth bat and a senior bat with same length and drop?

A youth bat features a 2 1/4" barrel diameter, whereas a senior league bat, such as the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8, features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.

I ordered the 2016 Easton TORQ (31" 23 oz.) for my son. He loves the feel of the bat, especially the weight distribution vs. some other bats that feel end loaded, but he doesn't like the TORQ handle. Would this bat have the same weight distribution as the TORQ or is it end loaded like some other composite bats?

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 is end-loaded, unfortunately.

My son is 12 yrs old, 5'2" and weighs 100 lbs. Would you recommend 31" bat for him?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of looking to this 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8) in the 31" length as long as you feel that you can handle the 23 oz weight of that length option.

I'm 5'7" and 180 lbs. Would you recommend a 31" bat or bigger?

Based on your height and weight I would recommend a 32" 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8).

Why is the 30" $20 more than the 31" and 32"?

Different sizes of bats are purchased at different cost points. Due to these different cost points bats will be listed at various prices to help meet profit margin goals.

My son is 12 yrs old, 5'2" and 115 lbs. Would you suggest 31 inch 23 ounce or 30 inch 22 ounce? Or do you believe the CF8 or 2017 CF Zen, in the same weights, would be a better choice?

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 31 inch model. As for the weight, if your son is entering 7th grade, we would recommend getting a drop 8 bat (23 ounces) to help prepare for the BBCOR era in high school. As for the bat to select, the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 is an end-loaded bat which would be a great bat for a power type hitter. If the player is more of a contact type, then a balanced bat would probably be better such as the Easton MAKO (XL always means end-loaded with Easton bats).

Why is this bat not on the banned Pony bat list?

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 is not on the banned list as it meets the criteria needed for use as outlined by Pony Baseball and its governing bodies.

Should I get the S3, XL3, Mako XL, Or Mako? I am 12 and 5'1, 77 pounds. I need a 30 or 31 inch bat and preferably 22-20 oz.

All of the options you have listed are good options. If you want an end loaded bat I would I would go with the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat or the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35. If you like a more balanced swing weight I would go with the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat or the 2016 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat. Both S3 models are aluminum and both Makos are going to be composite. What material you want is going to be completely your preference.

My son just turned 13 and is 5' 6", 128 lbs. We need a -8 bat. I'm thinking of getting the 31"/23 oz size. What do you recommend?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting a 32" model of a Youth Big Barrel/Senior League baseball bat. However, if you guys feel more comfortable with a 31"/23 oz option of a bat, I think that size will be fine. This 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8) is available in that 31"/23 oz size and has a bit of an end-loaded swing weight. As long as you feel that your player can handle that end-loaded 23 oz weight, I think a 31" model will be excellent for you.

I'm 11 years old, 5 feet tall, and 102 pounds. What size bat should I buy and what weight?

Does the MAKO XL Senior League -8 have a break-in period? If so, what is it?

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 is pretty hot out of the wrapper and does not really require a break-in period. It is still typically best to take about 50-100 swings off a tee though.

What is the difference between the 2015 XL1 Senior League bat and this one, the Mako XL senior league?

The differences between the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 and the Easton XL1 Senior League -8 Baseball Bat: SL15X18 will be the following: MAKO XL will feature TCT Thermo Composite Technology compared to IMX Advanced with the XL1 and the MAKO will have a Hyperskin grip while the XL1 will have a performance diamond grip. Other than that, both bats will feature the end-loaded swing weight with the two-piece technology.

Is there any difference between this bat and The 2016 Easton MAKO Big Barrel (SL16MK10) other than -8 vs. -10? Didn't know if the XL designation had any other significance.

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8 is going to be a -8 and have an end-loaded weight distribution while the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10 is going to be a -10 and feature a balanced swing weight. Those are going to be the two main differences between the two baseball bats.

Will this bat be approved for 13-15 Babe Ruth? Does it have a BBCOR rating?

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8) is not legal for play in the 13-15 Division of Babe Ruth. The bat is fully composite and features the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp. It is not a -3 and it does not feature the BBCOR certification stamp that would make it legal.

Is this bat end loaded?

By design, the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK8) is a balanced bat. However, players transitioning from a lighter weight bat to this may feel that the bat seems to feel end-loaded. Those experienced with an actually end-loaded -8 would not.
