Pros:  Probably an excellent bat. Easton offers quality equipment. That said, anyone can write a review on this forum, even if you haven't ever swung this bat. What you are seeing here are a lot of kids writing a review that haven't even picked up this bat stating how they went 4 for 4, 3 homeruns, and raised their average 100pts. Really?

Cons:  Remember: It takes talent, proper coaching, hard work, and heart. Nothing will replace that, not even a magical bat. As often said: It's not the arrow, it's the Indian.

Cons:  takes about 150-200 swings to break in

Pros:  i am able to get this bat through the plate faster then the cf6. unlike the cf6 i can get a little more pop out of the bat because of the bat speed i get from it i make better contact then i have and have been getting the most power then ever before. I was able to swing and try this bat out at a bat wars and this bat was easily my favorite out of the Demarrini bats as well and Combat and Marrucci bats.

Cons:  the price is very high but so far it has been 100% worth it my only advice is test it out before buying make sure you like it and it works for you everyone has different abilitys.

Pros:  Has good pop takes a while to break in, well balanced with a large sweet spot. Little vibration felt when not hit in the sweet spot.

Cons:  Not worth the money at all, I hit balls farther and harder with a nike thunder bbcor than this bat. The grip wears off fairly easily. My teammate has the s1 which has the same pop but BBCOR composite bats just aren't the same anymore as the old BESR bats were. ALUMINUM is the best option

Pros:  For the price, there are not pros.

Cons:  This bat is just an overpriced BBCOR bat. Nothing special. Hate to say it, but I'm going back to my Rawlings VELO from last year. Maybe it's me, but I prefer the feel of the VELO, and it seems to be a little more forgiving (bigger sweet spot). Really disappointed that I paid so much for this bat. I feel like a sucker. Don't believe the marketing hype.

Pros:  Got to demo this bat for a game this fall with my high-school, has the pop and barrel size/shape of the XL1 but is as balanced if not more so than the S1. This combination helps a lot especially as a smaller player to hit balls more effectively and harder.

Cons:  Long break in period, incredibly expensive

Pros:  There is not enough good to say about this bat. I got it a couple of weeks ago and so far I've hit mostly BP. The mako is one of the most balanced bats I've ever swung. Plus, the sweet spot is huge. It really reminds me of the old BESR bats. To add, the grip is great, the sounds is that classic composite ping, there is little vibration on off-center hits, the graphics are sick, and the swing speed is amazing. I cant wait to drop some bombs with this bat in summer ball. Definitely a great bat. Pitchers will fear you if you step into the box with this shark!

Cons:  I can't find a single con with the mako

Pros:  This bat has a nice sweet spot. The ball jumps off the bat. One can still get a decent result with ball flight distance even if not his square. It is very well balanced. The grip is nice. The handle feels comfortable. Break in time (approx. 120 hits) appears to be less than the S Series alloy bats that Easton produces. Very nice sound when hit solid. Nice paint design sets it apart from others. The bar has been set in the next generation BBCOR bats.

Cons:  Cost and finding yourself being selfish and no longer allowing other teamates to use your bat as you have in past years.

Pros:  Color Sound I bought this bat for my son and he seems to really like it he used an Easton XL2 -8 in the spring as a 13 year old so I wanted to get him use to swinging something a little heavier in the fall. We went through about 100+ swings of soft toss the night he got it and it has a cool sound to it. He use it in a game last night and went 3for3 one ball hit the fence on a line drive. Did I see a $450 difference in the way the ball jumps off this bat compared to the XL2? No.. I will write another review after he uses it a little longer.

Cons:  Price

Cons:  just because you bought a 450 dollar bat doesnt mean you are going to get base hits and homeruns

Pros:  Son is playing 50/70 intermediate and BBCOR is required. After using drop 10 and going to a -3 my son was worried. He tried several bats and settled for the Mako 31/28. He's 5'1" and 100 lbs, it took some time in the batting cage to get comfortable. His coach of thee years watched closely. Game one, a single, double and triple for 6 RBIs. Make sure to loosen up, the pop of this bat is worth the big price.

Cons:  None if ok with spending more.

Pros:  Feels very light in your hands making it easy to swing. It has tremendous pop and it will remind you of how the BESR bats performed. You will definitely want to purchase this bat!

Cons:  Everyone on your team will want to use your bat; however, it is designed for individual usage only per the warranty. The grip can use a little more re-enforcement to make it more durable.

Pros:  I got the 31/28 and it feels so light in your hands because of how balanced it is. The bat is unbeleavible I would defiantly recommend it to any one getting their first BBCOR bat because of how light it feels, I'm very small for my age I'm 14 years old 5'4" and 105lbs but I can get this bat around with no problem. It's defiantly a great bat for anyone who is in between a contact hitter and a power hitter.

Cons:  Long break in time

Pros:  It is an amazing bat with some of the best pop out of any bat. I struggled with power because I am undersized, but with this bat I have not. It feels fast through the zone like an S1, but when you make contact it feels like an XL. It also gives you the confidence that you need at the plate. It is worth the money buy it.

Cons:  A little vibration off the inside of the bat, but nothing that should deter you from getting this bat

Pros:  Great amount of pop for how light the bat is. Insanely fast swing speed. Great for every hitter. Has a massive barrel, even if you don't hit the ball on the sweet spot, it still goes far and there is no vibration. I really like this bat because i can feel the ball more and tell where i'm hitting the ball on the bat, without the vibration. Design looks great.

Cons:  The only con i can think of is; the paint is not the best as it can scratch and there are tiny div its in it after hitting a ball hard, but it's no big deal.

Pros:  Very good bat. It swings extremely light and has good pop to it. Has no vibration whatsoever. Great for guys looking for base hits. If you're looking for dingers, I'd go with the XL1.

Cons:  As far as durability goes, this isn't one of Easton's best showcases. The paint chips very easily if you're not careful with it. It shouldn't be too bad if your no throwing it around the dugout, into fences, etc. It marks extremely easy, though.

Pros:  I'm 18 and have been using Easton's since I was 10. I've had great success in the past and this year. This year ive been using the yellow XL1 and have had great success but I feel that has lost its pop so time for a new bat. Ive only had this bat for 2days but off a tee the bat has great pop with only 70 swings in id say. You know what they say, "History repeats itself" and im hoping for just that

Cons:  Cant 100% say that It will be the best bat as of now but you can only hope

Pros:  No bat sting.

Cons:  Easton Mako BBCOR simply does not hit as far as as the lighter Mako bats. My son has used -9 and -7 Mako bats and thought they were awesome. Now that he's 14, he's required to use a -3 BBCOR. I had to get him another bat, the Easton S3. The heavier BBCOR Mako does not perform as well as his BBCOR Easton S3. My kid blasts the ball with the S3. He just hits lazy fly balls to the outfielder's gloves with the Mako. I don't know if composite bats at -3 perform as well as -3 aluminum. He wants to like this bat because of his past success with a Mako. But it just is not the best BBCOR option. His team mates agree when they have tried both of his bats in batting practice. The Easton S3 hits harder and further.

Cons:  This bat is way over priced for what you get. It is just like the cf5 which is a lot cheaper than this bat. The vibration on the bat is horrible to, so definitely use batting gloves if you chose to purchase this bat.

Pros:  It has good pop about the same as the cf5 but good balance and good sweet spot.

Cons:  It is way expensive for being almost exactly the same as the cf5.. the cf6 is way better the whole barrel is a good sweet spot and the cf6 is only 400$ and is way better.. this is a good bat don't get me wrong but if u want to get the best out of your money I would recommend the cf6

Pros:  this bat is all weighted in the handle so that allows the player to feel like that bat weight is close to nothing. sure this bat might have a little vibration when you hit it below or above the sweetspot but dont take that as a bad thing because when you square the ball right on the barrel on contact you will feel it and know its going a long way. this is the best bat ive ever owned and my two previous bats were a marucci elite bbcor and a voodoo bbcor and this bat blows both out of the water by far. ive never swung a bat like this one. i went 3-3 today with a double two singles and 3 rbis. you cant go wrong with this bat. well done easton

Cons:  it is the most expensive bat to hit the market and 450$ is alot but in my opinion it is more than worth it

Pros:  Last year I was in 8th grade and used Xl1 -5 which was a great bat. This year since I'm a little small for a freshmen I tried using the S1 for the first half of the season, that was a decent bat but I found that if I didnt hit the ball off the sweet spot the ball would die. I got this bat and it was great. I went from hitting .120 in the first half with the S1 to .380 with the mako. This bat has a lot of pop for a bbcor and was a great in betweener because it had the balance of an S1 but the pop and forgiveness of the XL1 I would recommend this bat to anyone in high school regardless of strength, height, and weight.

Cons:  The only thing I found was that since I'm a lefty it sort of messes up the grip of the bat because it separates the tape on the bottom. I retaped it and it was fine after that

Pros:  My son feels like the bat is balanced.

Cons:  This bat lacks pop. I hate to say it because my son is real down about it. Not to mention I just spent all the money on this bat. All the kids on his travel team have this bat. It is definitely the "in" bat to have right now. But it is now clear to me that his Overlord crushes the Mako.

Pros:  I just got this bat at the easton factory. My dad works for them and he got to bring a mako home so I could test it. Wow. This bat is amazing. It feels like evenly spaced bat. The swing speed on it is amazing. With a great feel and a big sweet spot this bat takes 2014. The bottom line is this bat just changed easton history.

Cons:  None!

Pros:  I'm a freshman with insane bat speed and play at the top level in baseball. I didn't want the XL1 because I'm not a fan of endloaded bats, and its not really endloaded, and I didn't want the S1 because I already have the bat speed, so I would always be early. I got this bat and it is basically a balanced XL1 with the S1 handle. Best of both worlds. Get this bat if you're a line drive hitter and you can occasionally put some over the wall.

Cons:  Price, but what'd you expect? This is a balanced XL1 with the S1 handle. Get it

Cons:  Felt terrible when i was hitting with it. It had no pop whatsoever. My team and i got this bat to try out for our season and everyone hated it. They would have rather use wood over the Mako. You spend way too much for the bat anyway. You could buy a different bat that is better for half the cost. Sorry Easton but this bat wasn't good.

Why shouldn't you use the bat below 60 degree weather? Will it damage bat? What happens?

The Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB14MK, like all bats, should not be used below 60 degrees because it can damage the bat. The ball actually becomes more dense in the colder temperatures and that is what can cause the bat to be damaged. Composite bats can crack and alloy bats can dent.

I've been using a 5150 for 2 years. The 5150 is alloy and has a smaller barrel than the MAKO. Would it be a tough transition to go from the 5150 to the MAKO?

There will be a slight difference in feel between the Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2015 Rawlings 5150 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB5150) but it should not be a tough transition from one to the other.

Is there a wood bat that is the most similar to the swing of the 2014 MAKO?

The Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) features an extremely balanced swing weight, so looking at wood bats, I would recommend checking out wood bats that feature a 110 turn model. There is also the Easton MAKO Composite Wood Baseball Bat (MAKO) Comp Adult, which is actually manufactured to play like the MAKO BBCOR bat. Other manufacturers to check out would be the Louisville Slugger M9 Maple M110 Natural/Black Matte Wood Baseball Bat (WBM9110-BN Adult) or the 2015 Rawlings VELO Composite Wood Baseball Bat (R110CV) Adult.

What is the best way to break in the MAKO?

The Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) features a two piece full composite design. In order to break the composite down into a single layer, we would recommend 100-120 swings, either soft toss or off of a tee. The bat needs to be rotated 1/4" every twenty swings or so. Try not to hit against a machine, or live pitching until the bat is broken in, or composite speckling will occur.

Compared to alloy bats, why does this bat have so little pop when hitting off the tee?

I'm a power hitter. What do you think I should swing in the new Easton line up?

Another model I would suggest looking into would be the 2015 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15X1) which is designed more for power hitters with an end loaded swing weight.

I'm about 5'5",120 lbs. I am looking for a bat that is extremely quick through the zone with good pop, and good balance. I'm not the strongest, so balance is key. I either want a CF series bat or a Mako. What size would be good for me?

For a player of your size, our bat coach recommends a 30" 27 oz. model. You could also potentially move up to the 31" 28 oz. model. Both the DeMarini CF6-CF7, and the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) will be two-piece well-balanced bats. Two-piece bats typically allow players to have faster bat speeds, because they actually flex more when being swung through the zone.

Hi, I just bought a brand new 2014 Easton Mako BBCOR and I understand that it is a composite bat. I was wondering if you can give me the proper steps to breaking it in to reach its full potential. Thanks

With composite bats we recommend taking 150-200 swings playing soft toss or off a tee using real baseballs. Begin swinging at 40% power and work your way up to full strength as you get closer to 200 swings. It’s also important to rotate the bat ¼” after each swing to ensure that you get complete barrel coverage. Never break in your bat in a cage that uses yellow dimpled balls.

I am 5'8" and 130 lbs. I am looking for a new bat. Which is better: the Easton S1 or MAKO?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the Easton S1 are both high end two-piece composite bats with balanced swing weights. The Easton MAKO is a more advanced bat though, because it features the newest TCT Thermo Composite. The TCT Thermo Composite provides the MAKO with an extended barrel for a bigger sweet spot and makes the bat extremely light swinging.

I am 5 foot 5 and weigh 120 pounds. I am a freshman and I am a contact hitter. I am trying to decide between this bat and the 2014 CF6. Which is a better choice?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCFC) are great, top of the line options. The main difference is that the MAKO has an extended barred length for a bigger sweet spot. For that reason, however, the CF6 will be a bit more balanced overall.

Patrick Expert
102585 Click to show/hide answer

Which bat is the best: the CF6 BBCOR, the 2014 Mako BBCOR or the 2014 XL1 BBCOR?

All of these bats are great options. It depends if you want something with a balanced swing weight or something end loaded and a little heavier. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) is a 2-piece full composite that is light weight and balanced like the S1 with a long barrel like the XL. The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is also a 2-piece composite, but it is end loaded. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCFC) is a 2-piece composite that is balanced.

Does the MAKO hit better than the XL1?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) will have a lighter swing weight than the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1). In terms of maximum batted ball speed, they will both adhere to BBCOR restrictions so at their peak they will perform to the same level. If you can swing the end-loaded XL1 with good form and bat speed, it may lead to a bit more power production.

Patrick Expert
101739 Click to show/hide answer

How does the XL1 and MAKO compare to each other?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2015 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB15X1) are very similar in design with a two-piece composite construction and an extended barrel size. However, the MAKO uses a TCT Composite material that allows the extended barrel design but the bat is still well balanced. The XL1 will be more end-loaded.

My son is going to be 12 and he is only 4'7" and 70 lbs. Would either the MAKO or S1 would be better? What size is recommended?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) is a better option for him. The MAKO is one of the lightest swinging BBCOR bats on the market and will provide him with quick bat speed. Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 31" model.

Mako or the CF6?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR bat are both great. The MAKO will feature a longer more extended barrel. The CF6 will feature a D-Fusion handle for better comfort against hand sting and vibration. Either bat would be perfect for a BBCOR hitter.

What is the durability of this bat versus a 1 piece bat like the Cat 6? Which will sustain the pop longer?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) will have above average durability. However, we have seen composite barrel bats like the MAKO tend to last longer in a peak performance state than alloy barrel bats. The way the bats wear over time allows composite barrel bats to get hotter as they go while alloy barrels will slowly dull or dent.

Patrick Expert

For a power hitter, would you recommend a 1 piece bat like the Cat 6 or the Mako?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBC614) can be used by a power hitter. The stiffer flex of the Cat 6 would be more typical of a power hitter style player because it offers more control to push or pull the ball but both bats would be nice options.

If you are a contact player, I would probably suggest the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: (B14MK). The two-piece balanced design will provide players with added flex through the zone. Generally, contact hitters tend to prefer this type of feel. If you are a power hitter, I would probably suggest the 2014 RIP-IT AIR BBCOR Baseball Bat: (B1403A). The one-piece alloy design will provide a stiffer feel, and will also give players instant power.

Does this bat have the most pop on the market? A lot of the reviews complain about the pop?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14MK) is constructed using TCT Thermo Composite material. This type of material will require a slight break-in period. Generally we recommend around 125-150 hits, however, it is at the players discretion. It could take a little bit longer to break it in, but once the material is fully broken in, the power will continually build and expand over this model's lifetime. This model is top of the line, and has been one of our most popular models as well.

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S1) would be good options. They are very similar in design. The MAKO has a more extended barrel length and features a more advanced connection point which is better to prevent sting and vibration.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the S1 are very comparable bats in design. They are both two-piece composite designs with balanced swing weights. The MAKO uses Eastons newest TCT Thermo composite for a lighter swing weight and bigger sweet spot.

This past year I used a 32 inch bat and had success but I am moving up to varsity and I am only 5 foot 7 and weigh 120 pounds. should I move down to a 31 inch since I am small and facing good pitching, or stick with my 32 inch?

If you are seeing good plate coverage and swing speed with the 32 inch, I would stick with that. Working out and taking swings with the lager bat can help train your muscles to allow for a faster swing speed over time and the heavier the bat you use the more power you can get if you can swing it well.

My son is 15, 5'10" and weighs 210 pounds. What kind of bat should he use? Would the Easton MAKO be a good choice?

The best type of bat to use is a bat that compliments his hitting style. If he is more of a power hitter, an end loaded model would be a great option to take advantage of his strength and bat speed. If he is more of a contact hitter, a balanced bat is a great option to work on bat speed and bat control. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) features a balanced swing weight and an extended barrel (which is normally only seen in end loaded models), so it is the best of both worlds for power and contact hitting. The MAKO would be a great option for your son to check out.

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) and the 2014 Rawlings TRIO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBTRIO) would be rated the same in terms of maximum performance or "pop" they can achieve because they are both rated under the BBCOR standard. Given your age, if you are just starting out with a BBCOR bat I would lean more towards the MAKO because it is a little bit better balanced than the TRIO but both would be great choices.

I'm a 5'9", 140 lbs and I'm looking for a new bat. Would the DeMarini CF6 or Easton MAKO be right for me?

Both models have been very popular, and are going to be top of the line in performance. They will also have a similar two-piece composite structure, and balanced weight distribution. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14MK) is known for being very light weight, and having a great sweet spot. The 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (DXCFC) will incorporate D-Fusion Handle Technology, and this helps eliminate vibration and also helps to extend the sweet spot. Ultimately, it will come down to your personal preference. If you are a contact-hitter, both models will fit your game extremely well.

Does the Mako have a lighter swing speed than the S4? Does it have a similar barrel to the XL1? If so, which one has more pop?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) will have a similar balance and swing speed to the S4 but will have similar barrel dimensions to the XL1. All three bats will be BBCOR certified so they will all have similar maximum performance. The feel of the bat would make the difference for what you see performance wise as a player. If you perform better with an end-loaded model I would go with the XL1 but if you like a balanced bat you should go with the MAKO.

How many swings does it take to break in the MAKO?

Generally, for any composite bat we recommend around 125-150 swings, rotating the barrel a quarter of an inch after each swing. The composite material will start out pretty slow on the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14MK), however, once it is broken in, the performance will continually increase.

I'm 6'1", 175 pounds, and the 33" MAKO seems a bit light. Would I be ok switching to the 34" version?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend using a 33" 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK). Sizing is a matter of preference, so if the 33" feels too light, jumping to a 34" is definitely something to take into consideration. Generally, you want to swing the heaviest bat that you can comfortably and consistently control, so if you are able to handle a 31 oz., going with a 34" would be a great choice.

What is the difference between Easton's IMX Composite Barrel, SIC Black Carbon Composite Handle, and their TCT Composite on the MAKO? Is there any advantage to one or the other?

The IMX Composite material has been used in many of Easton's models for a few years. You'll find that material exclusively in the barrel, and the blend is designed to provide maximum trampoline effect. Since the 2013 product line, baseball models like the S1 and XL1 have featured the upgraded SIC Black Carbon Composite in their handles only. This material provides a stiffer flex which transfers energy more efficiently to the ball on contact while eliminating vibration. With the 2014 MAKO, the TCT Composite material allows that bat to offer both a large sweet spot while maintaining a very balanced swing weight.

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) will have similar pop because they both have to meet the .50 BPF BBCOR standard. The S1 and the MAKO are very similar in that they are two-piece composites and have a balanced swing weight.

I am debating between this and a XL1. I am more of a contact hitter but can still hit for power? Is this the bat for me?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK would be a great bat for someone with your hitting style. The MAKO has a very balanced swing weight for optimal bat speed which is preferred by contact hitters, but it still retains the extended barrel and large sweet spot of the XL1.

My son is 120lbs and 5-7. He is a 14 year old 8th grader. We are looking to get a bat that is appropriate for him now and possibly next year as a HS freshman. What do you recommend?

If you are looking to get a bat he can use in high school play than a BBCOR certified bat will be required. All of these bats have a -3 length-to-weight ratio. Some of our more popular BBCOR models are the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR: DXVXC, and are two very quality bats that are reasonably priced as well.

My grandson is at the end of his freshman year in high school, he is currently 5-9 155lbs, but growing. Should we stay with a 33" 30 oz. since he is still growing or move down to a 32" 29 oz. to help enhance better bat speed? He likes the swing of the 32" 29 oz. he is swinging right now.

Based on the fact he is liking the 32" 29 oz now, I would recommend getting that. That should last him several years, especially with the high quality composite found on the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK).

What's the coldest temperature the MAKO can be used in?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult, in temperatures below 55°F (13°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

Trying to choose between the MAKO and the Marucci Elite for my son. He is 14 years old, 5'5" and 110 pounds, line drive hitter who needs extra pop to drive balls into the outfield. What would be a better bat for him?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the 2014 Marucci Elite BBCOR: MCBE14 Adult are both high performing bats. They are both balanced bats, designed for a line drive hitter. The Easton MAKO has a slightly longer barre for an extended sweet spot.

Would the easton mako, rip it air elite, easton s1, or marucci elite have the biggest sweet spot.

All of those models will be very well balanced. The Easton MAKO will have the largest sweet spot out of the four.

I am a 150 pound 5'3" 13 year old and I have been looking at the Easton Mako and the demarini overlord I occasionally hit a home run and a triple here and there but this year I struggled with getting the ball in the air. I'm looking for a bat with a large sweet spot and will be able to nock balls out of the 350' fence. What size and bat should I get.

We would recommend a 31" model for a player with your height and weight. Both models are great BBCOR models. I would go with the MAKO model because it has a balanced swing weight. The DeMarini Overlord a slight end loaded swing weight.

As far as performance has this bat lived up to all of the hype? I know the swing weights are different, but performance wise how is this compared to the new voodoo overlord? I like the Ping of the voodoo, and the balance of Easton's and rip it's. I've owned all 3 in the past.

The 2014 Easton MAKO has been very popular with excellent reviews. It does not have the same ping sound as the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord because it is a full composite. The MAKO and the Voodoo Overlord are going to be two very popular models for 2014. Deciding between these two will be a preference of a balanced swing weight of the MAKO or the slightly end loaded swing weight of the Voodoo Overlord.

I am a freshman in highschool. I am 14, 5'6 and 130 lbs. My last bat was the 2012 easton s3 bbcor. I am looking for a new 32 inch bat. I am both a power and contact hitter. I am now trying to decyde whether i should get the new 2014 easton s3 bbcor or the Mako. Please give some advice.

Between those two bats, the Mako is going to be the better performer as well as more durable. Being fully constructed of composite material, the Mako will deliver more pop with every swing. The only thing the S3 would have over the Mako is that the S3 can be used in the colder temperatures. The Mako shouldn't be used in temperatures any cooler than 55 degrees.

Based on your size and weight, we recommend a 31" size bat. The Easton XL1 features an extra long barrel and is end loaded with power hitting in mind. The Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK is a combination of the Easton BBCOR S1 and XL1, so it features the speed and balance of the S1 and the extended barrel of the XL1. It is truly the best of both worlds, so if you are both a contact and power hitter, this would be a great option for you.

In all honesty, would you recommend the MAKO or CF6?

Both the Easton MAKO and the CF6 will be balanced and light weight. The biggest difference between the two is that the CF6 features a D-Fusion handle to help eliminate vibration. This also causes it to feel more like a one-piece bat.

Do composite bats "run out of pop"? If so after how many hits?

Any composite bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult, can lose its pop over time. The more the bat is used, the quicker the bat could lose its pop. Using a wood bat or a bat you don't use in a game can increase the lifespan of the bat. There is no exact number of hits that a bat could take and lose its pop, it would be completely dependent upon many variables including usage and weather temperature.

Both will also be very balanced and feature a lighter swing weight. The CF6 will feel slightly stiffer than the MAKO because it has the D-Fusion handle to help eliminate vibration.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the DeMarini CF6 are both balanced two-piece bats. They are designed for a contact hitter. The DeMarini Voodoo and the DeMarini Overlord are both end loaded bats, best for a power hitter.

Which bat has a larger sweet spot? The MAKO, Overlord, or the CF6? Also, which of these bats would have the most pop.

Honestly, all three bats will have some of the best pop and performance available on the market today. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and Voodoo Overlord will feature a longer, more extended barrel design. This can help with the sweet spot size. The CF6 will have a normal sized barrel design and be very balanced in swing weight.

I have been using the COMbat Portent, which is one-piece. Will I get more pop with a two-piece bat like the MAKO, or is it about the same?

Both the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR and the 2014 COMBAT Portent will feature top of the line composite materials. Therefore, you will not see a major difference in the pop. The main difference will be in the swing. With the one-piece bat, the swing will be a little more stiff. The two-piece will give you a little more flex during the swing.

I'm debating on whether I should buy the Mako or the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord. I am a pretty decent hitter who normally gets on base or drives people in. I sometimes have trouble getting the bat through the zone quick enough. Which bat would you think would benefit me the most? When is the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord coming in?

The DeMarini Voodoo Overlord will be in around January 1, 2014. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult would be my pick for you. It will have a slightly lighter swing weight and feel more balanced compared to the Overlord.

What age can you use a BBCOR, and can it be used in USSSA?

It really depends on the league the player is in. Many of the older divisions of USSSA permit the use of a BBCOR bat. BBCOR is the performance standard that regulates bats used in High School and College (and sometimes Middle School). To be certain whether a BBCOR bat is permitted in your league, you would need to check with a League Director.
