Pros:  Great grip. Simple but cool bat graphic. Not top heavy at all, which makes it better for contact hitters like me. Get this bat, cheaper and gonna be a better bbcor

Cons:  chips easy at barrel, but it won't change the pop

Pros:  We had bat reps come out to our practice and let us hit with several top bats. I hit the ball farther and harder with this bat than any of the others. I have used it in five games and I am definitely hitting ball harder. Good bat!

Cons:  Have not used the bat long enough to find any cons yet.

Pros:  Had to get a new bat for high school. I am a smaller player and the balance on this bat is perfect. I feel better with my balance than I did with my Stealth composite bat that I used in Pony. The grip looks cool, but it felt slippery after using it in my first batting practice. I put a black tape grip on it and now everyone on my team wants to get this bat. Love it!

Cons:  the original grip but that isn't why I bought the bat.

Pros:  Bought this bat for my 12 y/o son who is going to play middle school ball that requires BBCOR certified bats and he loves this bat! He can swing this bat like a beast due to the even weight distribution!! He has tried the Easton XL2 and loves this bat so much better!!! Paint is holding up great too!!! He loves the colors!!

Cons:  NONE....

Pros:  Very well balanced bat. Son tried several bats prior to purchasing this bat looking for good balance and a favorable swing weight. Weight distribution on this bat was most favorable to helping him reach his bat speed potential. Good pop but I think this has to do with the fact that his bat speed is maximized with this bat.

Cons:  None so far

Pros:  Only had this bat for about 2 weeks. I was swinging the 2012 Rip-it , but it is still just a bit heavy/end loaded for me to swing well .This bat is better balanced and has some really good pop for it right out of the wrapper . Cant wait till it has loosened up some . For how long I have had this , I have no complaints and would definitely recommend it .

Cons:  None that I can find so far .

Pros:  Starts out with decent pop, good balance, feels like a -5 out of the box.

Cons:  Loses pop immediately after first time I used it. Grip is cool but tears easily. Had to tape up the handle after the first month of use. If you're a contact hitter, go for the S1 or even the XL1. both bats have pretty equal balance, but the XL1 will give contact hitters the best chances at great hitting.

Why was this model discontinued?

The Easton S3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB11S3) was not discontinued. That is an older model and has been updated every year. The newest model is the 2015 Easton S3Z ZCORE Baseball Bat (BB15S3Z).

I recently purchased this bat. It is a good bat except for one thing. After the first use of this bat (light batting practice) I noticed that there was a crack in the handle. It split from the knob to the beginning of where the black part of the tape starts and the yellow ends (about 4 inches). I used it again today, and there was a performance decrease in the bat (more vibration, less pop/power). I was wondering if this was something normal, or it was a defect in the bat.

From the way you've described the situation, I believe the crack is really just the seam between the two plastic pieces that create the taper into the knob. Under the grip tape of this Easton S3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB11S3), there are two plastic pieces that create that flare from the handle into the knob (which spans the length of the yellow grip tape). In regards to the performance, there may be a defect in the bat. But Easton would be able to provide more insight into a possible defect in their product, and could set you up for a return under the warranty; if applicable. You can reach them directly at: (888) 259-1297.

Hi. I'm a 6'5" 195 lb Senior in high school. I've always used wood. Which Easton BBCOR do you recommend?

If you have used a balanced wood bat, the Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 is a good option. If you use an end loaded wood bat, the 2014 Easton XL3 BBCOR (BB14X3) is a better choice.

Does this bat need a break in period?

Since the Easton S3 (BB11S3) is a one-piece alloy, we do not suggest a break-in. The Easton S3 (BB11S3) should come pretty hot out of the wrapper.

Does it have the same handle as the s1

The Easton S3 BBCOR (BB11S3) does not have the same handle as the Easton S1. The Easton S3 is a one-piece fully alloy design, so it has an alloy handle. The Easton S1 features a two-piece fully composite design, so it will feature a composite handle.

Have you guys just recently ran out of some sizes in this bat?

Our web sites are real-time, so they reflect our current inventory of size options. This Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 Adult is the 2012 model, so our inventory is low, and we have likely sold out of some sizes recently.

What is the difference between the Easton S3, S2, S1, XL1, XL2 and XL3?

The difference in the entire line of Easton bats will be the design and materials used. The S-Series will be very balanced and light in swing weight. The XL-Series will have a barrel heavy feel, and an extended barrel. The S1/XL1 will be two-piece fully composite designs. The S2/XL2 will be two-piece half and half designs. The S3/XL3 will be one-piece fully alloy designs.

I'm 5 ft 4 in and I weigh about 130 lbs. Which type of bat should I get (Xl or S) and what size?

If you need to increase your bat speed the Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 Adult is the best choice. If you are a power hitter the Easton XL3 would be a better suited for you. Based on your height and weight we recommend a 31" 28 oz. bat.

Is the XL3 better than the S3?

The Easton S3 BBCOR and the Easton XL3 BBCOR both use the same materials. The XL3 features an end-loaded swing weight which is more suited for power hitters. The S3 features a balanced swing weight better suited for contact and line drive hitters.

The Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 Adult is a one-piece alloy that is well balanced, while the DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle and is slightly end loaded. They are both high performing bats, but the designs are very different.

The Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 Adult bat and the Easton S1 BBCOR Adult bat will have the same swing feel. They both will be very balanced. The S3 will be a one-piece all alloy model, while the S1 will be a two-piece fully composite bat. If you like a stiffer bat feel go with the S3.

How would Easton's Power Brigade Speed and XL Series compare to Rawling's line of bats? I'm trying to find the best one-piece bat I can get my hands on.

The Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 Adult is a one-piece alloy that is very balanced. The 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 Adult and 2013 Rawlings VELO BBCOR: BBVELO Adult are very comparable performance-wise, with the VELO being the most balanced of the three. The Easton XL3 from the Power Brigade Series is end loaded, unlike the S3 and Rawlings bats.

Would you recommend he stay with that or would a kid that size benefit from a composite bat like an Easton S1?

It looks like the suggested bat length for him would be a 29". The 2013 Easton S1: SL13S110 Senior League, and 2013 Easton S3: SL13S310 Senior League both come in a 29" 19 oz. The S1 would provide you a higher performance for a longer period of time. The S3 will not require a break-in period and be ready right out of the wrapper. Both would be great for the age and size of your player.

Which bat should I get: XL3 or S3 BBCOR? I am a freshman in high school, 5' 8", 135 pounds, and strong for my weight. I can generate a lot of bat speed by myself and can hit for power despite my speed and size. I just bought a 33' 30 oz XL3 (the new model) and my dad says that he thinks that it might be a little long. I have not taken it out of the wrapper so I can return it. Should I return it because even though I have good bat speed, the good pitchers in my league can reach 80 mph. I am looking for an aluminum bat because of the feel but if you think I shouldn't get an aluminum bat please say why.

If pitchers in your league are throwing in the 80's it may be a good choice to stick with the Easton S3 because of its balanced swing weight will help you generate bat speed. It sounds like the XL3 would be a good bat for you, but it is end loaded and could cause your swing to slow down and cause you to be behind the faster pitchers. I would train for one more year with a wood bat and use the Easton S3 in games for now.

The Easton S3 BBCOR: BB11S3 will have the same balanced swing weight that the S1 and S2 have. The major difference is that the S3 is one-piece alloy bat.

My son is 5'7" and about 125 pounds. He bats 1st or 2 in the lineup, and has good bat speed. I'm wondering if i should get him the S3 or XL3?

If your son has above average bat speed and above average strength, the XL3 would be the best option for him. If he has average or below average strength and swing speed, I would recommend the S3 for it's lighter swing weight.

I would recommend a 31" bat for a hitter of your height and weight. If you are more of a power hitter, I would recommend one of the XL series because they are endloaded. If you tend to hit more line drives, the S series would be a better fit because they have a balanced swing weight.

What is the diffrence between the S1, the S2, and the S3? If I have a more powerful swing should I use this bat or the Easton XL2?

The Easton S1 is two-piece all composite bat. The Easton S2 is a two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Easton S3 is a one-piece bat that's all alloy. Strong players with good swing speed may benefit from the XL Series as it has a little longer barrel but will have a heavier swing weight than the S Series.

Is this bat made for contact hitters?

This is a one-piece bat, which is usually preferred by power hitters. Contact hitters can definitely use it too if they have a quick bat speed. Most contact hitters prefer two-piece bats because they aren't going to be as stiff and the two-piece design offers a little bit of flex, which helps create a whipping action with their swing.

Should I get this or the DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR? Why?

Much of it comes down to your personal preference. The Easton S3 is a one-piece bat that won't offer as much flex as the two-piece Voodoo. If you are looking to increase your bat speed, the S3 may be a better option. The Voodoo will offer a little more whipping action through the zone due to it's two-piece design and may help put a little more pop behind your hits. With that being said, the Voodoo and the S3 are both great bats.

Im confused, sometimes you say the Easton S3 is for contact hitters but sometimes you say it is for power hitters? Which one is it? I am a contact hitter so which bat would be best for me out of all bats?

The Easton S3 is a one-piece bat. With that being said, more power hitters prefer a one-piece bat because it is going to be pretty stiff and that stiffness helps generate more power. More contact hitters prefer two-piece bats because they offer more flex than a one-piece, which helps their swing by providing a whipping action. If you are looking for a good bat for a contact hitter in Easton's Speed series, I would suggest checking out the S2 or S1.

is there a reason why the S3 is cheaper than the S2? I understand the S2 is half composite therefore it bends more at contact but is that really that big a deal? Should I get the S2 or S3?

All alloy bats are the cheapest to manufacture, and therefore cheaper in price, but the Easton S3 is very high performing. If you are a power hitter, I would go with the S3 since it is stiffer. However, if you are a contact hitter, the S2 may be a better option.

I am looking for a BBCOR bat now for this summer. Looking at Eastons S or XL series or DeMarini Voodoo. Which would be the BBCOR equivalent (feel and build) to what he used to? TIA.

The Distance is a one-piece all aluminum bat. The only BBCOR bat from Demarini that we have in stock that is like that is the Versus.

While the Easton S1 is going to be the replacement for the Omen; it is going to be a two-piece fully composite design.

Does this bat have a stiff or regular flex handle?

The Easton S3 has a stiff handle. The Easton S1 and the Easton S2 are two-piece bats, so they have more flex in their handle.

I'm an average hitter with some power and can make contact sometimes. Which its better for me, the S3 or the XL3?

The Easton S3 had a more balanced swing weight to it. The XL3 is going to have a slightly longer barrel, but also feels more end loaded. If you have great bat speed, the XL3 may not be a bad option, but if you have average bat speed, the S3 may be the better fit for you.

Which Power Brigade would be best for a speedy leadoff hitter who hits for average?

The Easton S-Series is the best option out of the S-Series versus the XL-Series. Most contact hitters prefer to use a two-piece model like the S1 or the S2 and most power hitters prefer to use a one-piece model like the Easton S3. The XL series is going to have a slightly longer barrel, but the bat feels slightly more end heavy.

Do one-piece bats or two-piece bats generaly have more pop?

The answer to that lies with what type of hitter the player is. Most power hitters prefer and one-piece bat and most contact hitters prefer a two-piece bat. Two-piece bats provide more flex, giving the bat more of a whipping action when the player swings the bat.

How does this bat compare to the 2012 TPX Warrior?

The Easton S3 and the Louisville Slugger TPX Warrior are both one-piece alloy designs. The metal used in the Easton S3 is a little more durable than the alloy used in the Warrior. If you are looking for a Louisville Slugger alloy bat that is more comparable to the Easton S3, I would say the TPX Omaha is a closer comparison than the TPX Warrior.

What is difference between the S3, XL3 and Rival with the THT 100, the Demarini M2M SC4 alloy and Reflex 7050 alloy. Is there a preference or performance difference with each of these materials?

Every manufacturer has their patented alloy. The Easton S3 is designed more like the old Speed bat, with the low MOI for a faster bat speed. The Easton XL line is an extended barrel.

What is the difference of the sound of the S3 compared to the S1 when you hit the ball?

The Easton S3 is an aluminum bat, so it is going to have a ping sound. The Easton S1 is a full composite bat, so it will have more of a thud sound coming off of the bat

My son is a power hitter and from what I read should be using a 1 piece bat. For 2012, which is best? Easton? Rawlings? etc, and which model?

There are so many excellent one-piece BBCOR bats. This one, the Easton S3 is a good one, as is the Easton XL3. The Rawlings 5150 is another great one-piece alloy design. Louisville Slugger makes the TPX Omaha. There is also the COMBAT B3, Nike Aero, Marucci Cat 5, and many more. All would be great for a power hitter.

I'm a power hitter but I think my bat speed is a part of my game. My past bat has been the Rival. Which bat do you think will best suit me, the S3 or the XL3?

If you are a power hitter, the Easton XL3 is going to be tailored more for you if you already have a great bat speed. If you have an average bat speed, but are a power hitter, I would say the S3 may be a good option. With the new design, these bats have been specifically manufactured for the power, and to integrate the speed with it as well.

I have to find a bat for mt first year of high school ball and there are 2 bats that I am looking at. Easton S3 and Easton XL3. What would you suggest for a 5'9'' 210 power hitter?

The XL3 would be more tailored to the power hitting type framed athlete if you have a quick bat speed. The Easton S3 can also be used by a power hitter with a slower bat speed. The S3 is more balanced than the XL3, but the XL3 has a slightly longer barrel.

What is the difference between the S1 and S3 other than the price?

If you check the features out you will see that the Easton S3 is a one-piece aluminum design and the Easton S1 is two-piece fully composite design. Composite bats and two-piece bats tend to be a little pricier as they have a high production cost.

What's the difference in the Easton S3 and the XL3?

The Easton XL3 has more of an end-loaded feel as the barrel is slight longer (better suited for stronger power hitters). The Easton S3 has a more balanced swing weight (better suited for contact hitters or power hitters looking to increase their swing speed).

Which bat out of the Speed Series and XL Series is not end heavy and has the most pop for a mostly contact hitter but can show a little pull power..I've seen where experts have said one-piece is for power hitters and some say one-piece is for contact, so im not sure what to go with. Thanks!

The Speed Series will be evenly balanced and not end-loaded like the XL Series. The Easton S1 will be the highest performing and Easton's top of the line followed by the S2 and S3. The Easton S3 is a stiffer bat that stronger hitters often prefer.

I'm a contact hitter and i'm looking at the S3 BBCOR and the XL3 alloy BBCOR. Which one should I go with?

The Easton S3 will be more evenly balanced. The Easton XL3 will be more end-loaded. Stronger power hitters would probably prefer the XL3. A contact hitter or power hitter with a slower bat speed would probably be better suited with the Easton S3.

Derek Expert

Should a contact hitter go with the S1, S2, or S3 baseball bat?

The Easton S1 or Easton S2 would be the better option for a contact hitter since they are both two-piece bats with more flex. The Easton S1 is a two-piece full composite design and the Easton S2 is a two-piece hybrid design.

I am about 5'10", 170 pounds. I have some pull power at times and very fast hands.. Mostly a doubles and triples kinda guy though. Which one of these new Easton bats would fit me best?

I would look at the XL series, the S series is going to help the player increase bat speed where as the xl series is going to help the player generate more pop off of the bat. The Easton S-Series has more of a well-balanced swing weight and the Easton XL-Series has more of an end loaded feel.

Is the Easton S3 a better bat than the 2 piece DeMarini Versus for a contact hitter?

The Demarini Versus is more for contact hitters as it is a two-piece design. The Easton S3 is better suited for power hitters. The Easton S2 is also a two-piece bat that would be great for contact hitters.

I am a 5'8" 130lb. junior. I have fast bat speed but am more of a contact hitter. Which Easton bat would be best for me?

The Easton S3 is more for power hitters because it is a one-piece design. The Easton S3 may still be used by contact hitters as it does have a well balanced weight. However, the Easton S1 and the Easton S2 are two-piece designs that may be better suited for contact hitters.

I'm a 5-5 120 pound sophomore who's more of a defensive player who hits for contact. None of the pitchers in my league throw gas so should I go for this or the XL?

The Easton S3 is going to be more of a well balanced bat, so you will probably be able to generate more bat speed with the Easton S3. The Easton XL3 is going to have a slight end loaded feel, but also has a slightly longer barrel. The S3 will probably be a better fit for a contact hitter over the XL3. The XL1 and XL2 may be another option to look into.

We do not have much information on the new Marucci bats, but the new Easton S3 and XL3 are very good options. The Easton S3 will help generate a quicker swing similar to the Marucci Cat 5. The Easton XL3 has a slight end loaded feel but has a slightly longer barrel than the Easton S3 and Marucci Cat 5.

Does the end cap have occurrences of coming off if hit towards end of the bat? Also is this bat for contact or power hitters?

We have not heard of many issues with the end cap coming off. A one-piece bat like the Easton S3 is designed more for power hitters. Two-piece bats like the Easton S1 and Easton S2 are more for contact hitters. If the end cap does happen to come off, it will be covered under twelve month manufacturer's warranty through Easton.

How does the S3 compare to the S2?

The Easton S3 is a one-piece bat and the Easton S2 is a two-piece bat. The one-piece bat is more for power hitters and the two-piece bat is more for contact hitters. One-piece bats have less flex than two-piece bats.

Todd Expert

Both bats are excellent bats. The Easton S3 is a one-piece aluminum bat while the Easton S2 is a two-piece bat with composite handle and an aluminum barrel. The S3 is designed for power hitters due to the one-piece design and the S2 is for contact hitters due to the two-piece design. A two-piece bat has more flex than a one-piece bat causing more of a whipping action when swung.

Trying to decide between the S2 and the S3. Do both have regular flex handles? My son is mostly a contact hitter but does show some power at times.

The Easton S3 is a one-piece, all aluminum design. The Easton S2 is a two-piece bat with a composite handle and aluminum barrel. The Easton S2 will have a bit more flex to it making it beneficial for contact or gap hitter looking to add more pop. The S3 would be more beneficial for natural power hitters as it does not have a flex handle like most two-piece designs.

This is a one-piece bat. Therefore, is this bat for a power hittter? But there is also the XL3, which is advertised for power hitters? So is Speed Series for contact hitters and XL series for power hitters and disregard if it's a two-piece or one-piece bat?

The Easton S3 is a one-piece bat, which is typically preferred more by power hitters. Because the S3 is so balanced, many contact hitters may use the S3 as well. The S1 and S2 will be better suited for a contact hitter. The XL series is the same way in the XL3 being more for a power hitter and the XL1 and XL2 being more of a contact hitters bat. However, the XL series has a slightly longer barrel leading to more of an end loaded feel.

The Easton S3 is a one-piece aluminum design that has a very well balanced feel to it. If you like the graphics on the S3, then I would probably go with the S3. If you like the graphics on the Rawlings 5150 better, then I would say go with the 5150. They are very comparable bats.

If you are a contact hitter with some power, I would recommend either the S1, S2, or S3 from the Speed series. However, if you want to go with the XL series, I would suggest going with either the XL1 or XL2, but probably stay away from the XL3 as it is geared specifically towards a power hitter.

Should contact hitters stick with one piece alloy bats or is a 2 piece bat a good option as well?

Description for Easton S3 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB11S3
Easton truly believes that every player should have the opportunity to hit for power. However, the road to power hitting is different for every player. Some players need extra bat speed to reach their full power potential, while others need more weight and a bigger barrel. That's why Easton is changing the game this season and taking an approach to bats that no other manufacturer has ever tried before. Introducing the POWER Brigade; Two series, one distinct result. Whether you prefer the fast swinging Speed Series or the heavier extended barrel XL Series, POWER will be your outcome. Forget flashy designs and gimmicky names, these bats produce RESULTS. The Speed Series (S1, S2, S3) features the lowest Moment of Inertia (M.O.I.) on the market to create light swing weights and generate more power. On the other side of the spectrum, the XL Series (XL1, XL2, XL3) features extra long barrels designed to give players expanded hitting zones and more mass in the barrel, generating more power in every swing. Easton really does strive to fulfill the preferences of any type of player as both series come in two-piece IMX Composite designs (S1 and XL1), two-piece IMX Composite/THT100 Aluminum hybrid designs (S2 and XL2), and one-piece THT100 Aluminum designs (S3 and XL3). As for the materials, Easton's patented IMX Composite has proven to be one of the highest performing materials in the game year after year, while THT100 Aluminum provides superior dent and crack resistance. Throw in an array of additional world-class Easton technology and you have a new line of bats that is second to none. Easton: We Believe In Power! This bat is BBCOR Certified and approved for high school and collegiate play. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
