Pros:  Easton got it right with this bat. Good price, no break in. Great balanced bat. One piece is the way to go. All the college players are using one piece bats now. Don't waste your money on more expensive composite bats that are temperature sensitive and take time to break in. The ball flys of this bat. Great large barrel. Best Easton bat made

Cons:  Nothing at all.

Pros:  Light weight bat with big sweet spot. I really square up balls better and hit much better using this bat. The snakeskin grip is alright, not great but very durable. I am very satisfied with this bat!

Cons:  If you get jammed, your going to feel it as it as a one piece bat.

Pros:  I haven't ever seen a BBCOR bat perform this well in cold weather. Thru 7 cold IL. H.S. games this bat has helped me get 7 extra base hits, inluding a HR that cleared the fence by 50 ft. If you're a power hitter, this is the most end-loaded bat out there. I can't wait to see what happens in warmer weather.

Cons:  I like the grip, but it seems to be wearing. May need a lizard grip soon.

What bat has a lower swing weight: Easton Z-Core Speed or Louisville Slugger Solo 617? Does the Z-Core have a larger sweet spot?

(1) The Solo 617 will have a lower swing feel than this 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS). This is due to the composite end-cap construction on the Solo 617 that makes the bat lighter to swing. (2) Overall, the sweet spot length on both bats should be pretty similar overall.

What's the difference with the 2017 Z-core speed and the 2016 S500 ( BB16S500 )? Is one barrel a little longer?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS and the 2016 Easton S500 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16S500 are both one-piece alloy bats featuring balanced swing weights. The main difference will be in the alloy used. The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS will have a lighter swing weight feel due to the HMX alloy being used. This will also give the bat a slightly larger sweet spot when compared to the S500.

Which has the longer barrel: the 2017 Z-Core Speed or the 2017 Velo?

It would be hard for me to say that either of these models really had a subsrantial barrel length advantage over the other, but when putting this 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) next to the 2017 VELO, I would say that this Z-Core Spped bat looks to have a 2 5/8" barrel thickness that extends further down the bat from the end cap (when comparing it to the 2017 VELO).

My son will be playing Jr High baseball this year. He's 12, weighs 160 lbs and stands 5'4". Would this be a legal bat for Illinois Jr High baseball? I was thinking they all had to be BBCOR, right?

I would imagine that this 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) would be allowed for play in Illinois Jr High play (I don't know 100%, but typically once a player gets to Jr High, the BBCOR bats will be allowed). Based on his height and weight, I would recommend looking to a 31" size of a BBCOR bat.

To my understanding, my grandson has to have a bat that is a drop 9, 33" length and 2 5/8" barrel. I can't find a bat like that. What should I do?

I would recommend checking with your grandson to get confirmation on the rules for his league. It may be a requirement to swing a bat like this 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) which has a drop 3 size and 2 5/8" barrel diameter. Reach out to your grandson or his coach to get a 100% confirmation on the size of bat he has to swing and then reach back to us. We could certainly help best when we know the bat rules exactly.

How does this bat compare to the 2017 Rawlings 5150 and the 2016 Rawlings VELO?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) is going to be very similar to the 2016 Rawlings Velo is swing weight and design. It is going to be a little more balanced than the 2017 Rawlings 5150. All in all these three bats are going to be very comparable in design and performance with the Z-CORE and the Velo being more balanced than the 5150.

Will this bat be permitted for use in 2018 Little League in the Seniors division? I understand the bat regulations will be changing in 2018.

No, BBCOR bats such as the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) will not be legal in leagues that require the new USA stamp next year.

My son is two months away from being 14 years old and is moving into high school summer ball. Right now he is using a 30", 25 ounce bat; however, will need a BBCOR for in about a month. He is 5'9" and weights 125. What would your suggestion be for size and type of bat?

Based on your sons height and weight I would recommend a 31"/28 ounce 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS).

I am a 13 year old 5'0 tall and weigh 75 lbs. Being forced by league to use BBCOR bat this year. What is your recommendation for a BBCOR bat? I'm liking the lighter swing speed idea of this bat, but still think this will be too heavy for me to get around on pitches. I was using my 30" Drop 10" Senior League Easton S3 and loved it.

I would recommend the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) in the 29"/26 ounce version. It is one of the few bats that comes in the 29" so I think that it would be ideal for you.

How does this bat compare to the 2017 VELO?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS and the VELO are both one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. Performance wise one bat is not going to be better than the other. The VELO does have a composite end cap though, and most players feel that it is a little more balanced than the Z-CORE Speed.

What is the difference between the Easton BB16ZA and the BB17ZS? Other than being a newer model?

The 2016 Easton Z-CORE HMX BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16ZA and the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS are essentially the same bat. Slight swing weight feel difference with regards to the 2017 model but other than that they are the same paint with different colorways.

Need a bat for a 12 year old who is 5'2" and 160 pounds. What size bat?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS is designed for high school and college age players. If a 12 year old who is of your son's height and weight is required to use a BBCOR bat then we would recommend getting a 30 inch model.

I am 13, 5'1" and weigh 90 lbs. Would you recommend a 30 or 29. Right now I am swinging a 30 -5 xl3 and I am a contact hitter.

We would recommend a 29" length 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS based on your height and weight. If you feel that you want to stay at a 30", that would still work fine.

I am 14 years old and weigh 100 pounds. I will be playing high school freshman baseball. I am looking for feel and a bat to increase my bat speed. Is this a good bat for me?

This bat would feature the second lowest swing weight index in BBCOR power brigade. Most BBCOR bats will feel the same as far as weight, so I would recommend looking for a balanced bat so that it feels slightly lighter. This would have a good lightweight feel.

How does the Easton Z-Core Speed's barrel compare to the Z-Core Hybrid's barrel?

After inspecting the bats, it is my opinion that the barrel length (length of thickness down the bat towards the handle) on this 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) will be the same as the barrel length on the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH).

Is there any difference, other than cosmetic between the 2016 and 2017 models?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS is going to be very similar to the 2016 model. Easton did maximize the bat by creating a longer barrel and lowering the swing weight on the 2017 model.
