Pros:  Bought this for my 10 yr old son 1 month ago. He has been using it at practice 3 times/week. He has never been a "power hitter" more up the middle type of hitter. My son, his coach and I have noticed the ball traveling a lot further when he hits. At practice the other day (cool, damp day) he actually hit the fence consistently. His hits up the middle also seem to have more power/speed. 2 months ago he was using a Worth and not hitting as hard, so I don't think its a "kid is older" issue. No dents. Good grip. I never was one to believe that a bat could "improve" a hitter but in my sons case it has.

Cons:  My concern is with the end cap. Another coache's kid was using the same type of bat and after two practices the end cap popped off. His dad mentioned that he saw another end cap pop off from another bat. I don't know if it was a bad batch (These two coaches odered at the same time from another supplier)or is there an issue with the glue. Keeping my fingers crossed it was just a bad batch.

Pros:  7 y/o Son loves the look. Hard to find a 27" 17. Glad we found it. Son had a 26" 15 easton stealth last year. He likes the ping sound when he connects much better than the composit of the stealth. Had it about 2 weeks. We hit a 6 gallon bucket a balls every night getting ready for the spring season and no dents yet. Hasnt had the chance to use it in a game yet.

Cons:  White scuff marks from the balls mess up the cool black and yellow look; but thats baseball baby!

Pros:  The kid loves the new bat. Seems to have a lot of pop regardless of where the ball hits the bat and good overall feel. He also likes the design.

Cons:  As with any other bat review, the bat is only part of the story. If the Batter does not have skill, the bat makes little difference:)

Pros:  My son's team swings nothing but Easton S Series this season. Last weekend, due to the cold weather (high 40s to low 50s), everyone hit S3s. In 4 games, our team hit 7 home runs. Before last weekend, our team's previous high was 2 home runs in a weekend. I didn't see any other teams hitting the S Series bats exclusively-- and, interestingly enough, no other teams had near the home run output that our team had. Coincidence?

Cons:  Hope our rivals don't figure out our secret.

Pros:  Great hits in the few time my son used it and a nice grip.

Cons:  Bat has a HUGE dent in the center between the S & T of Easton after my son's 2nd tournament plus multiple small dents. Easton has this bat on backorder until the end of May which is the end of the season. Easton said that they do not have any replacement bats. Spent $200.00 on a bat that he will never use!! EXTREMELY FRUSTRATED with the company!!!!

Pros:  Like many of the Easton bats it's easy to swing. Has good pop. AND unlike the Rival has proven to quite durable. No dents thus far. Nice bat.

Cons:  Cost is too high. Would give it 5 stars if it was priced lower. If it wasn't for the new USSSA stamp I would have waited until next season when the price drops.

Pros:  My son loves the look of the bat! It is balanced well and easy to swing.

Cons:  He has played one 8 year old coach pitch tournament and the bat is already dented and stings his hands really bad. He doesn't want to use the bat anymore because of the sting. I had several of the boys try the bat at practice and they all threw it down and said it stung. I have sent the bat back and waiting to see how the new one does. Was told I couldn't sent it back again that the next bat was not warranted. Sure is early in the season for a bat that is this expensive to be broke and then no warranty? I would not purchase this bat again.

Pros:  Great bat when it wasnt dented, comparable to the old Rival

Cons:  Bat first dented after 1 1/2 months. Tried to RMA online w/ Easton like they suggest and was ignored. Called to get RMA after a week of waiting only to be told that the bat is on backorder till the end of June (currently 3/15/2012). Was told I could get the 2 5/8" but it was still on backorder till end of April. Wouldnt upgrade or give me a refund, was told I just had to wait. Pretty unacceptable in my opinion. This is my sons 5th Easton (2 rivals, stealth, and 2 1/4" S1) and will be his last.

Pros:  Got the 29'/19 for my 8 yr old son. 1st season using Big Barrel. He's hitting "Lasers" with this bat. I'm a big Easton fan, used the brand in college and have always loved product. Opening day Dble Header last week, he hit a "come backer" Rope, so hard at the coach, he almost needed medical attention. I highly recommend this bat. Solid sound, great cosmetics.

Cons:  ZERO.

Pros:  This bat looks good and hits good

Cons:  The bat does hit good, but we noticed dents the size of baseball on two sides of the bat. This bat was used at one tournament and practice less than a month. Easton gave a credit refund to be used on their site, the problem is, it's on back order-what good is that? I had to order on another site and I can't use the credit towards this site.

Pros:  Huge pop off the barrel, unbelievable balance. Kids that were using much lighter bats are able to handle this with ease. Builds confidence in every level of hitter. First time my 8 y/o son was up he one hopped it over center field. Now he can't wait to get up to bat. Team has every bat imaginable and this one is by far superior. Out hits all of them

Cons:  Paint chips very easily. Have several spots chipping after a couple weeks use. That's it!!!

Pros:  Nice pop. Not as much pop as the Worth Prodigy series, but close... and it is more sturdy than the Worth. Also, this bat has a longer return policy than most because...

Cons:  ...this bat will dent. Don't let anyone tell you it won't. We have 5 on our 12U travel team and all of them have a dent or two in the first season... some more than that. With these thin walled bats that offer such good pop you know what you are getting into. Keep the receipt!

Pros:  I have always beed a big fan of Easton Bats. This bat is a one piece alloy. It has great pop for cooler weather. We use the S1 composite in warmer weather. The S3 performs right out of the box.

Cons:  Only wish Easton would donate eleven of these bats for the other boys on our team. We would be unstopable. Go Easton

Pros:  pop

Cons:  Unfortunately the cons outway the pro's... the bat does have big pop but if your son has good bat speed it will dent after first use. I have had 3 S3 bats...2 28/18 and now 29/19 for my now 10 year old and he is not big but has tremendous bat speed... and all 3 were completely flat... a round bat should not have sides! I just can't buy anymore.. will probably sell the replacement when it comes in and get something different

Pros:  Got this bat for our 10u travel team was already having try outs for the spring here in Wolcott, Ct. In November. My son normally uses the S1 full composite. He killed the ball in the cold with this bat. He said he might start using it year round. Made the team too. Good job Easton.

Cons:  A little sting in the handle when not hit in the sweet spot, but all alloy bats do that.

Pros:  Great pop right out of the box. My 11yr old 115lb kid DID well with it. We picked this bat as it was the closest thing to a 5150 (that he loved). New team can only swing Easton bats.

Cons:  End cap keeps coming out about 1/8-1/4 of an inch after making good contact. Had an umpire tell us he has seen that with many Easton bats this year. I don't mind paying good money for a product as long as I get a good product. I also can't send it back and get another (we play every weekend). It is now his "practice" bat.

Pros:  I keep reading reviews whinning about denting. These bats are made for optimal performance, they are going to dent. If they didn't, then the ball would not jump off the barrel like it does. Easton does an excellent job honoring their warranty and replacing bats in an expeditious manner. If you want a bat that doesn't dent, then buy a more durable BUT lower performance bat, but don't expect the same pop. Either way, quit whinning, you can't have superior performance and complete durability, they don't coexist. This bat by far does the best job of combining those aspects.

Cons:  Looks like a bumble bee.

My son normally swings an XL1. He is playing in some cold weather tournaments. Would this bat be a good cold weather alternative for him?

The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League would be a great alternative for him to use in colder weather.

My son is 11, 5' 5", weighs and 140 lbs. He is trying to decide between the Easton S1, S3, or the Rawlings VELO. He borrowed the VELO and hit the ball very hard with it. He currently uses the TPX 30" 20 oz. What would you recommend?

The Easton S1, S2, and Rawlings VELO are all very balanced bats. The S1 is Eastons top of the line bat and will perform just as high as the Rawlings VELO. The S1 is a two-piece bat and the VELO is a one-piece design, so it will come down to personal preference.

My son is 8 years old and in a kid pitch league. The league rules are age appropriate. I am wanting to get a big barrel bat for him. I was wondering if he should get a drop 12 or 10?

Do you have a Easton 26" long and 2 1/4 barrel?

The only Easton 2 1/4" bat available in a 26" is the 2013 Easton Magnum: YB13MG Youth. The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League is currently unavailable in a 26" 16 oz.

My son is a good contact hitter but I am looking for him to get more pop from his bat. He is 48" and about 50 lbs. He currently has a 26" 16 oz. TPX Omaha now. Would he be better off going to an Easton XL3 or Easton S3 or something else? He will be playing coach pitch tournaments this summer but kid pitch in the fall. Do you recommend a Senior League bat or Junior Big Barrel bat?

The 2013 Easton XL3 is an end loaded bat, better suited for a power hitter. The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League is a more balanced bat. We recommend using a Senior League bat that can be used in coach pitch and kid pitch.

Will it hit a ball over the fence every time I swing as hard as I can? Or will it be like a DeMarini and swing as hard as I can and barely get it to the outfield?

The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League is a great one-piece bat. But it will not hit the ball over the fence every time. It will have a very balanced swing weight also.

Is this bat Little League approved?

Check with your league to see what barrel diameter is allowed. The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League has a 2 3/4" barrel, usually Little League will only allow 2 1/4". That would mean that you would have to go with the 2013 Easton S3: YB13S3 Youth.

The Easton S3: SL11S310B is a high performing bat with average durability. It should work well for a 9 year old ball player. The Easton S3: SL11S310B is not produced in a 29" 18 oz. model, but based on his size, he should be just fine with a 29" of the Easton S3.

My son is 5'4" and 100 lbs and more of a line drive hitter. Which would you say is a better bat for him, the Easton S1 or The Easton S3.

Both are good balanced bats. The Easton S1 will be higher performing as it is a two-piece composite bat, whereas the Easton S3 is a one-piece alloy.

My son is 8.5 years old, 52" tall, and weighs 57 pounds. What size do you recommend in a big barrel bat?

I know the difference between the S1 and S3 but I was wondering if my 10 year old son will get the same swing speed and pop from the S3 as he would the S1? Also being 4'9" and 70lbs would the 29" be ok?

This bat (the Easton S3: SL11S310B) has a 2 3/4" barrel. The Easton S1 big barrel bat has a 2 5/8" barrel. Because of the slight difference in barrel size, the S1 will have a slightly lighter swing weight compared to the 2 3/4" S3. According to Easton, the S1 is the better performing bat as well. Based on his height and weight, a 30" model is actually recommended.

What is the main difference between the Senior League and Junior Big Barrel models by Easton? Is a 27/17 Senior League going to perform the same as a 27/17 Junior Big Barrel? Is the weight distribution different?

The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League is intended for Kid Pitch and Machine Pitch leagues, whereas the 2013 Easton S1: JBB13S1 Junior Big Barrel is designed for Coach Pitch only. The Junior Big Barrel bats will be higher performing, but they have thinner walls that will dent in higher velocity pitching. The S-Series from Easton are balanced models, whereas the XL-Series are end loaded.

I'm really confused. Whats the difference between the S1, S2 and S3?

The Easton S1 is a two-piece full composite bat. The Easton S2 is a two-piece bat with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Easton S3 is a one-piece full alloy bat. One is not proven to outperform the others and it's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate.

My son uses a Worth Prodigy 29" 19oz (1 year old), the bat is heavily dented and he is in need of new bat. He does like the balance of this bat, does not like sting. He likes the Easton S series bats, I am not sure which one is right for him (S1, S2, S3). He did try a RIP IT 30" 20oz big barrel and did not like it. He has an Omen, 30" 18oz, does not like because of 2 1/4 barrel. His coaches say he has great speed and explosion. He is 10 years old 4'10 1/2" tall weighing 89 pounds (absolutely no fat). I do not like how the Prodigy dented as he used it, but I do understand that might be normal wear for him. I am really torn between going with another aluminum or switching to the S1. I appreciate your help.

It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate. If he had success with the Prodigy, then I would absolutely recommend the Easton S3 over the S2 or S1. If he did not have success with the Prodigy, then it may be a good idea to switch it up and go with the S1 or S2.

Considering this bat for my son, he will be in machine pitch for the Spring season (Pony League). He's about 51" tall and 57 lbs. He did great with his 28"15oz last Fall season, but he needs a new bat and everyone seems to have this type of bat. Also, can he still use this bat if he advances to kid pitch?

The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League is a very popular bat for young players. It features a balanced lightweight swing to increase swing speed and add power. This bat is available in a drop ten (-10) and will be slightly heavier than your previous bat, but it can be used in the kid pitch leagues also.

I coach a 8 yr old coach pitch team. I'm looking for two new team bats. I was wondering what I should get. The Easton SL11S310B or 2013 Easton S1JBB13S1 or 2013 Miken Rev-Ex JREV11. Out these three bats which two would recommend for my team bats? I'm looking for durability and distance. Thanks.

The 2013 Easton S1: JBB13S1 Junior Big Barrel and the 2013 Miken REV-EX: JREV11 Junior Big Barrel are one piece composite bats that will require a slight break in period. They are both are specifically for coach pitch because of the thinner walls and they are best for younger players because of the drops. The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League is a very high performing bat that will not require a break-in period. It is a great option for players who will only play one season of coach pitch so they may use this in machine or kid pitch the following season.The Easton S3: SL11S310B Senior League has a very balanced feel as well.

I have 12 yr old. What is the difference between alloy and composite besides price comparing Easton S1 to the S3 travel ball player?

Composite materials tend to have more pop than alloy because the composite material acts as a trampoline. The more the composite is used the farther the ball bounces. However, composite does take longer to break in. The Easton S3 has excellent pop for an alloy bat and does not require a break in period. Alloy is less expensive to manufacture and therefore, costs less. The Easton S3 is a stiffer bat, better for a player with some power.

My son is still 5 yo (6 in Jun) but playing up in coach pitch - big for his age, tall and 60 lbs, and strong. Been using a 15 oz but at last practice tried a 17 oz big barrell and was crushing drives into the OF. Trying to decide b/t this and the XL3 (only negatives of which I have read are the dents). Which of these 2 bats would you recommend for him, assuming he could grow into and use for couple seasons?

The main difference between the two bats is the weight distribution. The Easton S3 is a more balanced bat and the XL3 has more of an end loaded feel to it. If your son is pretty strong and has a strong swing, he could probably use the XL3 without a problem. However, if he doesn't have a strong swing I would probably suggest going with a balanced bat, like the S3.

Even after looking on Little League site I can't determine if this bat is legal for Little League Junior level ( 13 & 14) ?

This bat is not legal for use in the Junior Little League. This particular bat has a barrel diameter of 2 3/4 inches, which is not allowed in this league. The S3: SL11S310 has a barrel diameter of 2 5/8 and is legal for play in the Junior Little League division.

My son is 7, 4'5", & low 50's weight. Right now he swings a 28" 18.5 oz LS TPX. Does a 30" (-10) sound like too much bat for him? Also, would an S or XL series be better?

As a general rule of thumb, you want to move up an ounce or two in weight every time you purchase a new bat. A 30 inch -10 should be good for him. I would lean towards the S Series as they will be more evenly balanced.

Can this bat be used in Dixie Youth Ozone baseball?

With the information that we have here, this bat will not be legal for use in the Ozone division. Bats with a barrel diameter larger than 2 3/4 are not allowed to be used in this league. Since rules can change from league to league I would suggest checking with your league official to make sure though.

What is the biggest difference between the S2 and the S3?

The S2 is made of a two-piece hybrid design meaning it has a composite handle to decrease vibration and an alloy barrel. The S3 is a one-piece alloy design and has great pop right out of the box!

Which bat S series should I get. I am a contact hitter and need a light balanced bat with great pop, large sweet spot, absorbs sting, and needs no break in period.

Two piece bats like the S2, are usually better suited for contact hitters. The S3 is a one piece alloy. It is stiffer and usually preferred by power hitters.

Could I use this under USSSA and BBCOR rules?

This does have the new USSSA stamp and is legal in that regard. Only Adult baseball bats have to be BBCOR certified and this is not an Adult baseball bat.

Nope. You'll actually be moving down a half ounce and it shouldn't be too heavy for him.

Which is the best bat out of this series?

The Easton S3 is a one piece all alloy, the Easton S2 is a two piece with a alloy barrel and composite handle, and the S1 is a two piece full composite. The S1 has more pop, lighter feel and a bigger sweet spot of the three.

My son is 11yrs old and is a solid double and triple hitter. He hit well with the orange/white Rival 2010. Due to rule changes for the second straight year we have to buy a new bat. As an expert would you recommend the Easton S3, S2, Louisville Exogrid2, Black, Vertex, or Worth Prodigy? He swings a 31" 21Oz. Thanks! I would suggest that bat companies give more demo bats out to let players hit like the golf companies do!!! Thanks Baseball Dad

If he hit well with the Rival, I would lean toward the S3 since it was made to replace the Rival. So much of hitting is psychological, especially for younger players and it's good to stick with what has been successful for him in the past. This is especially true for younger players. The next closest options in my opinion would be the Vertex and Worth Prodigy.

Can this bat be used in USSSA ball by my 11 year old son even though it's called a "Senior League" bat?

The words "Senior League" just mean bigger barrel. The Sl11S310B is approved for USSSA and is a great bat for your son.For more information on USSSA certified bats contact our customer service, 1-866-321-2287.

My son has a 29" 20oz Voodoo big barrel. It is a little heavy for him. He likes the weight of his 18oz Omen (regular barrel) but I would like to get him a 2 3/4 but I do not want a bat that is going to dent up. What should I get him - I was thinking about this in a 29"??

The S3 is going to be one of the best 2 3/4 inch bats out there. This would be an excellent choice.

MY son is an 11u 65lb, contact hitter. Should he get the S1 or S3?

The difference is the S1 is an all composite bat and the S3 is an all alloy bat. The S1 has a slightly lighter feel then the S3 all alloy bat. Choosing between the two will be more on what he likes and feels better swinging.

My son is swinging the SV12 29/19 now and swinging it well, however it is not USSSA stamped. I cant decided on a series...

Easton will have two different series, the Speed series and the XL series. The Speed series is more designed for contact hitters and players needing to increase their bat speed. The XL series is designed for more of the power hitters and will feature a little larger sweet spot. The S1 and XL1 is the replacement for the Omen, which is going to be a two piece composite. The S2 and XL2 is going to be the replacement for the Surge, this bat would have an alloy barrel and composite handle. The S3 and XL3 is going to be a one piece all alloy and this is the model that is replacing the Rival.

My son is a contact hitter moving out of wood bats. He's 14 and swings a 32. Should he stick with a -3 or move to -10 and two piece or one piece?

A -3 bat will be much heavier than a -10. If he does not have to swing a -3 yet there is no reason to get that size. Most contact hitters like a two piece feel but this will be more of a personal preference picking between one piece and two piece.

My son plays 11u select. He's always swung a -10 composite bat and I've been debating on giving this alloy bat a try. Any thoughts/concerns about moving from a composite to alloy? Are there any potential issues my son might have due to the material differences?

Alloy barrel bats will not require a break in period unlike composite barrel bats. Composite barrel bats require 150-200 swings off the tee or soft toss to help fully break in the composite fibers. A composite barrel bat will give him the most pop with more usage.

John Expert

There are many alloy bats out there that are very high performing. The difference between alloy and composite is that alloy is going to be at its highest performance level out of the wrapper, compostie material is going to take a break-in period and get hotter with time and use. This SL11S310B is a great choice.

The Easton S1 replaced last years Omen, the S2 replaced the Surge, and the S3 replaced the Easton Rival. The Easton S2 is what you would want to be looking for.

Does your league allow the 2 3/4" barrel? If not, the SL11S310 Senior League (without the B behind it) is the 2 5/8" barrel that is most commonly used. And yes, either would be perfect for a contact hitter.

What advantages/disadvantages does a 2 3/4 bat have over a 2 5/8 bat? The 2 3/4 is allowed in my sons league as long as it is a -10. Looking strongly at the S3 B.

If your son can use a 2 3/4" barrel then get that size. The probelm with a bigger barrel is that some leagues do not allow that size. The bigger barrel will give him more contact with the ball and better pop.

In a lot of questions, you respond that power hitters tend to prefer one piece bats and that contact hitters prefer the double wall style-- what's the reasoning?

Yes, it is true. The reasoning is with a one piece there is no flex when the ball makes contact, so they get more of their power hitting abilities behind the hit. With the 2 piece bats (not all but most) are designed to have a bit of flex, so when the ball hits the bat, the bat bends giving the batter an extra push.

Why do you say the S3 or the XL3 is better suited for power hitters and not contact hitters? What is the difference in the SL3 and XL3?

My 9U (75 lbs) has good bat speed, but tends to lag the bat head a little bit. He does better with a well balanced bat vs. an end loaded or barrel heavy bat. So which is the best option S1, S2, S3. Sounds like the new XL's wouldn't be the best option.

If you want a more blanced feel. The "S" series would definitely be the way to go.

I may get this bat, but I'm kind of nervous because I got the Marucci Cat 5 squared and I didnt like the performance of the 1 piece all alloy design. Would this bat be better, and if not how would it compare?

If you don't like a one piece alloy like the Cat 5, you might look into the Easton S2: SL11S210. The SL11S210 has a little less vibration due to the two piece design.

Description for Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL11S310B
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 features the USSSA 1.15 stamp and is approved for play in 2012 and beyond. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
