2016 Easton S500 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16S500
great bat for a freshman to have
It has great pop and the ball travels far of the bat
Pros: lot's of pop.
Cons: the grip hurts with out gloves on.
Pros: Best drop 3 out on the market for sure. I am on my highschool team and i hit 13 dingers using this bat. you will only hit line drives if you are playing youth ball because the pitching is not fast enough. If you are in highschool i truly recommend this bat. great pop, no vibration, Hit dingers 350 feet.
Cons: sounds like a wood bat but goes farther than a wood bat.
Pros: You cant really feel the vibration
Cons: The grip hurts a little
Pros: Really cheap bat if you are on a budget. Paint chips but not as much as others. Pretty balanced swing weight compared to the end loads, but can't compare to the lightweight swinging bats.
Cons: So much vibration! I hate the feeling at contact and sound of it. Here's a general rule with aluminum. If it is under 100 dollars, it will thud instead of ping and will not be a very good feeling at contact. If you want a good aluminum, 200 and up is the real deal. (CAT, 5150, Velo, Voodoo 1, Omaha, Solo are great aluminum choices) I am very happy with my Velo after tons of trials.
Pros: great bat for a freshman to have. my son likes the look of it. was delivered really quick!
Cons: no free stuff given when bought it.
Pros: It has great pop and the ball travels far of the bat.
Cons: It vibrates a lot and the grip could be better.
Pros: It has great pop and it lasts a long time.
Cons: It's not a balanced bat so it feels a little heavier than most bats.
Pros: Amazinging pop easy swing
Cons: Top heavy
Pros: it has a lot of pop , better than the 2016 Mako
