Pros:  Yesterday I went to a Easton bat demo at a near by facility to try the new Easton bat line for 2017. For a BBCOR bat I thought the Hybrid had decent pop, but the biggest difference I felt was that it had a nice smooth feel on contact. The Z-CORE Speed and the Z-CORE Speed XL were ok bats. The Speed just didn't have that nice smooth feel like the Hybrid. I also believe the Speed didn't have as good of pop compared to the Hybrid.

Cons:  None

Pros:  Selected this bat for purchase after trying out the DeMarinini Zen and Easton Beast (and others) at a bat demo day. Went with the intention of purchasing the Zen. Performance of this bat simply stood out from the others. Very balanced for greater bat speed, excellent pop, and a noticeably large sweet spot.

Cons:  Not sure on durability.

I'm looking for a BBCOR Easton bat. I only swing with 31" inch bats. I'm about 5'9" and weigh 135 lbs. Any recommendations/suggestions to what BBCOR Easton bat I should get?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH would be a great option for a BBCOR baseball bat. I would look at the 31'' 28 oz option.

Is this bat better than the Z-Core Speed?

This 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH) is a different bat than the Z-Core Speed as this bat features a two-piece, hybrid design (alloy barrel and composite handle). The Z-Core Speed is a one-piece, all-alloy bat. JustBats customers have rated the bats pretty similarly (a little edge to the Speed). The decision on which bat a player prefers comes down to the preference they have for a build.

Is this bat better than the previous models like last year's Z-CORE Hybrids or the S2Z?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH features a longer barrel for a larger sweet spot than previous models, as well as a slightly end loaded feel as opposed to the balanced feel of previous models.

I'm 6'3" 180 pounds, which bat would you recommend and what size? I hit for both contact and power and bat 2nd and 3rd.

Based on your height and weight, I would suggest a 33" 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH.

I am about 5'6 110 pounds and mostly a contact hitter usually bat 1 or 2. What do you recommend?

I would recommend the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH) in the 31"/28 ounce size for you.

Are there any restrictions about using this in temperatures around 49-50? I've been told composite bats shouldn't be used in cold temps. Is the same true for alloy/this bat?

Any bat, regardless of material, can be damaged and under-perform in colder temperatures below 55 degrees. We understand games have to be played in this type of weather, just try to limit the use of your bat, such as the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH, as much as possible in those temperatures.

I asked a question earlier and you said to go with the Z-CORE Hybrid instead of the Z-CORE XL since I have the Louisville Slugger 716. I was look at the Marucci CAT 7 Connect and wonder which one is more end loaded and more durable?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH, as well as the other BBCOR models that have been mentioned, have all shown good marks with regards to durability. Of the three bats, the Z-CORE XL will have the greatest end-loaded swing weight feel (about 0.5 ounce difference). Both the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH and the Marucci CAT 7 Connect will have a similar swing weight feel to the LS 716.

Cameron Expert

I am about 5'7", weight about 175. I'm a power hitter. I either hit 3,4 or 5 hole. I have the Louisville Slugger 716 now but want to go back to Easton but I don't know if the Z-CORE Hybrid or the Z-CORE XL will be better.

If you liked the feel and had success with the 716, I would stick to that type of bat and go with the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH. If you are looking for something stiffer, with more mass in the barrel, I would go with the one piece, end loaded 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX.

My son is 5'9" and 165. What size bat is best and he is a contact hitter that can hit with power. Should I get a 1 or 2 piece bat end loaded or not?

Based on your sons height and weight and what you have said about him I would recommend the balanced 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH) in the 32"/29 ounce version.

How is this compared to the Easton Z-Core Speed Limited? I am a power hitter, which is better?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH is going to have more weight towards the end of the barrel and be more beneficial for a power hitter compared to the more balanced feeling 2017 Easton Z-CORE SPEED Limited Whiteout BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZSW.

How does this compare to the Rawlings VELO?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH) and the 2017 Rawlings Velo BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB7V) are both going to feature aluminum barrels. Where these two will differ is going to be the Z-CORE Hybrid has a two piece design which is going to offer some flex and a composite handle while the Rawlings Velo is going to be a one piece bat. It will have a much stiffer feel, similar to a wood bat.

Is this the same bat as the 2016 Z-Core Hybrid and the 2015 S2Z?

This 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH) will be extremely similar to the 2016 Z-CORE HYBRID and 2015 S2Z (all bats have HMX alloy barrels and SIC Black Carbon handles). The 2016 and 2015 bats mention a balanced swing weight (while this bat says it is "slightly end-loaded"). Besides that, I think the biggest difference between all the bats will be the cosmetics.
