Pros:  It's 7050 alloy, but we were surprised at the hard line drives coming off this bat. Bought for cage work indoors but this would be fine for regular use, especially in colder weather when you don't want to take chances with your composite bat.

Cons:  IMO, this would be a contact hitters preference, a player that hits to all fields but not necessarily a power guy.

Pros:  It's only $50.

Cons:  I'm pretty sure that Easton put time and money into making sure this was the worst bat on the market. It doesn't have half as much pop as a $20 wood bat. The sweet spot is absolutely tiny. If you hit it anywhere half an inch or more out of the sweet spot the vibration is worse than any other bat I've used. You're better off just spending $5 more and getting a different bat.

Can this bat be used in slow pitch softball?

The Easton Reflex BBCOR Baseball Bat (BX81) is not legal for use in slow pitch softball. The Reflex has a 2 5/8" barrel and does not feature any of the legal stamps.

Jason Expert

Can it be used for travel ball?

Given the more restrictive nature of BBCOR standards of performance, most leagues will not have a problem allowing it for use in league play. However, that would be a question to ask your coach or league official before purchasing.

Patrick Expert

Can it be used for travel ball?

If the travel ball regulations state that the bat needs to have a .50 BBCOR stamp, then yes, the Easton Reflex BBCOR: (BX81) will be certified for play in your league.

Merritt Expert

What is the difference between this bat and the green Reflex?

The Easton Reflex BBCOR (BX81) will be very comparable to the newer Easton Reflex BBCOR (BB13RX). They both feature the one-piece alloy design and a balanced swing weight. They are both made of the 7050 Aircraft Alloy so they will be very similar. The only true differences will be cosmetic.

How long can I expect this bat to last?

The Easton Reflex BBCOR: BX81 does not have a set lifespan (no bats do). But if you take good care of it and don't let others use it, it is possible to get a couple of years use out of it.

I am 5'8 and 160 pounds. What would be the recommended size bat for my freshman year in high school?

Frank Expert

Can you use it in little league?

The Easton Reflex BBCOR will have a barrel diameter of 2 5/8". Be sure to check with your league and see if you can use that size barrel. If not then you would have to go with the 2013 Easton Reflex Youth YB13RX.

Is this bat approved for Babe Ruth in 2013?

The Easton Reflex BBCOR: BX81 Adult is legal in Babe Ruth for ages 13-18 in 2013. If you are playing in the Cal Ripken division (ages 6-11) of Babe Ruth you would need a 2 1/4" barrel bat, so it would not be legal.

I am 5'8" about 160 pounds. Would this be a good bat for me? if so, what size bat? Also is this good for high school?

The Easton Reflex BBCOR: BX81 Adult bat will be a BBCOR Certified bat. It will be legal for high school and college play. At your height and weight I am recommending a bat size of 32" 29 oz. This one-piece all alloy design will have a very balanced swing weight. It will require no period of break-in.

Is this a Very balanced bat? Would you recommend it for a 13 year old?

The Easton Reflex BBCOR: BX81 has average balance for an adult BBCOR bat. It would be a great option for a 13 year old.

I bought this bat for my 12 year old son so that he could get use to hitting with a BBCOR bat before the 2013 season (which he will be required to use). Before the season starts, He wants an Easton S3 BBCOR to use during the 2013 season. Will the S3 be more balanced and will it have more pop than the Reflex BBCOR?

The Easton S3 BBCOR is a very balanced bat. It is made of a higher grade alloy than the Easton Reflex for more durability and pop.

My son is 13 and is 5'6",125 lbs. He is now moving into a Fall league that is BBCOR. He has been using 32" 21oz composite. Do you think he should go to a 31" BBCOR or stay at 32"? I am concerned about the increased weight.

I would recommend staying with the 32". It is always recommended to stay with the current length or move up.

My son is turning 12 years old and starting junior high ball this fall. He has been using a 28" 18oz DeMarini but has to go to a BBCOR certified for junior high. What size and weight would you recommend?

The length of the bat is determined by the players height and weight. Check out our bat coach for correct sizing: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

My son is 12, in Little League he has to use a 2 1/4 bat which is pretty light, but needs a BBCOR for travel (13U). Does it make sense to get this bat a bit shorter to try and cut down on the weight difference?

Yes this does make sense. BBCOR bats will have a -3 drop making them feel heavier. Many kids are getting BBCOR bats shorter in an effort to get the lightest weight.

Kris Expert

Is the Rival better than the Reflex or are they about the same?

Both bats will perform just about the same. The main difference is the type of alloy each bat is made out of. This bat is made with 7050 Aircraft alloy, while the Reflex is made out of THT100 Aluminum.

I am so confused by the new bat requirements. Will this bat be allowed for high school play for the next few years? I want to buy a bat that my 13 year old can use NOW as well as for the next few years. I just spent $300 14 months ago on a bat that is now worthless.

I understand your frustrations, as of right now this bat will be approved for 2012. Do not know what the rules are going to be like in 2013

Does the blasting cap on the 2011 Reflex really help? Which bat has more pop? Which bat would you recommend for a 13 year old, the 2011 or 2012 Reflex?

It won't have a huge effect on the performance of the bat. There is not going to be much of a difference between the two, the 2012 should have slightly more pop than the 2011

Sean Expert

Does this bat have more pop the lets say the easton rival?

Compared to the Rival, the Reflex will have a little less pop. Compared to other bats in the $100 price range though, the Reflex can't be beat.

I would say the Easton Rival has more pop than the Reflex.

Is this bat comparable to the vexxum also im about 5 foot 90 pounds and 14 yrs old would you recomend this bat for highschool?

The Reflex is a one piece alloy bat and the Vexxum is a two piece bat witha an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Reflex is going to be a little lighter, but stiffer.

So is this new Reflex considerably better than the 2011 model

I wouldn't say it's considerably better, but it does have a better feel and balance compared to last year's Reflex. I would give the 2012 model a slight edge in performance, but it's not that big of a difference.

My son will be 13. He's 4'9" and weighs 97 pounds. Can he use a 31/28 BBCOR?

If his league requires him to use BBCOR, there are some that are a little shorter and lighter. For instance, the Easton Relfex, Typhoon and a few others.

My son just turned 9,he is 4foot 8 and 115 pounds would a 29-26oz bat be to much for him.

BBCOR bats are for high school and college players only. That weight would be to much for a 9yr old. Check out our youth bats in a 29". Those will be a better fit.

What is the difference between the 2012 Reflex BBCOr and the 2011 model? Any changes made to the design?

The difference is going to be the aluminum that is used in the bat. The 2012 bat will have a little more pop and more durability. This is based on the technology that is used in the 2012 bat that is going to be newer then the 2011 model.
