Pros: Great pop and big sweet spot. It is hot out of wrapper (and I hate when you see that ina review but it's true) The ball really does fly off this bat and my 11 year old loves it.
Cons: It started showing spider webbing on barrel only after a few hits of BP. After a couple practices, the finish is starting to chip on barrel. Hasn't effected performance but afraid umpire will say we can't use in game beause of chipping and webbing. Remains to be seen. Daughter stil loves this bat.
Pros: This Bat is great out the wrapper. Good graphics and true to weight. I always right out of the wrapper check the weight of my bats. Buying a good bat for my daughter was important. Her first time using was excellent good "pop". She went 3 for 4 with a double and 2 singles. Price was great cheapest I could find on the internet. It was even cheaper then my deals i get from my Men's tourney team I run. I would recommend this bat for anybody that is looking for a good first time . This is a bat that you would get your daughter to make the transition for cheap store bought to a good quality bat.
Pros: Great pop! I had the 2011 synge for when i was 12. We got it because I was little, and it was light. Then that one cracked and easton sent me this one. Overall its a great bat, no problems at all for me! the only thing is I've outgrown this one, but that's not the bats fault!
Pros: Have noticed improved speed and distance since switching 10 year old daughter from alloy bat to composite. She has been very happy with the bat. Bat has been thrown around plenty, no signs of chipping.
Cons: Outer wrap stress cracks almost immediately. Doesn't affect performance so far as I can tell. I would probably upgrade to its replacement fs13s2 if I had to do it again. but its a great bat for the current price
Pros: My 10 year old was drafted to the majors this year and is playing with 13&14 year old girls that are throwing a lot faster than she was used too. So we got her this bat. Fast to get around , better distance, and awesome pop.
Cons: Just like most composites you have to find the right hand strength at impact or the bat will not perform. It's an average bat, nothing special. It is forgiving in the sense that you have a longer sweet spot - BUT that does not mean it pops any better.
Cons: I can't believe all the 'great pop' comments. This bat is below average and over priced. This is the second Easton in a row that I'm disappointed with so I'm done with them. My daughter borrowed a $22 alum Worth Storm and its twice the bat. I just ordered the new Lithium Worth Storm for $59.99.
Pros: This bat is the real deal. just bought this for my 16 year old daughter and she was hitting missiles right out of the wrapper. 10 game into this bat and it is agreat bat with excellent pop. i would recommend this to everyone.
Cons: Dead. Should have stuck with the 2011 design. I have a 2011 synge and its amazing. Any one who gives this bat gopd reviews obviously hasnt had a better bat in there hands. It is not hot out of the wrapper. It is forgiving but that's about it. If you have good bat speed this bat will not benefit you.

Would the Synge still work for my daughter in the 32" vs. 31"?
Asked by Softball Mom
The Easton Synge (FP11SG) is typically used by younger players. However, the best size for her is determined by her height and weight. Check our our bat coach for correct sizing: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
At a height of 5' 4" and a contact hitter, is 33" going to be too long? My daughter normally swings a 32" aluminum. Any other suggestion under $100?
Asked by MJS
The best way to determine the correct bat size is by the players height and weight, but a 33" model will work just fine. The Easton Synge: FP11SG Fastpitch is a terrific model for a contact hitter with its balanced swing weight.
Does this bat have a lot of vibration when hitting?
Asked by bigo357
No, we have not heard any issues with vibrations or stinging of the hands with the Easton Synge.

Asked by Bdog

My daughter is 13 and we are looking at getting her a new bat, she is 5' 8'' tall and she swings a 32" 22 oz. bat and we are wondering what length and weight to get or what bat to get if you don't recommend this one.
Asked by Shelshel1800
The Easton Synge: FP11SG Fastpitch bat will have a drop of 11.5. It will be lighter than her -10, 32" 22 oz. I would stay at the -10 size instead of trying to get a lighter bat. Checkout this option: 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X Fastpitch. It will be a -10.
I'm 17 and looking for a really good composite bat. A lot of these reviews have daughters that are like 11 or 12, is this bat specifically for younger girls?
Asked by Tater
At drop -11.5, the Easton Synge: FP11SG Fastpitch is designed with younger girls in mind. At high school level play, the most common weights are drop -8 to -10.
My granddaughter is 16, 135 lbs. and 65" in height. Will the 34" 22.5 ounce be a problem for her?

Asked by softball mom
The Easton Synge: FP11SG Fastpitch is a 2012 model. Easton didn't make a 2013 model.

Asked by JoJo

Compare this bat to the 2010 white and yellow Synge.
Asked by True Grit
The white and yellow Synge (model #SRV6B), was actually a 2011 model. The only major difference is that the 2012 Easton Synge: FP11SG features an upgraded CNT Composite in the handle to provide better durability and a slightly stiffer feel.
What is the correct way to break in the Easton Synge?
Asked by Bookworm
Best way to break in composite bats would be to take at least 200 hits from soft toss. Also, make sure to rotate the bat a quarter of a turn every couple swings to make sure you are taking hits evenly on all sides to break up the material.
I have been trying to pick a bat for my daughter who plays in 12u ball. I've been looking at the Easton Synge:FP11SG and Easton CV12:SCG1B. We live in a cooler climate, so I was wondering which bat to choose?
Asked by coaching dad
Both the Easton Synge: FP11SG Fastpitch and the Easton CV12: SCG1B Fastpitch are great bats. They are both one-piece designs. The CV12 will have a slightly end loaded feel to the swing weight to go along with its all alloy design. The Synge will have an all composite design. The Synge will typically be used in 55 degree and above weather. Both bats will lose performance in colder temperatures because the softball becomes more dense and heavier.
I'm considering the 2012 Easton Synge for my daughter but am worried about the barrel chipping as the other reviewers mentioned. Is this something I need to worry about? Is this a manufacturer defect or something that happens to composite bats?
Asked by Angela
The Easton Synge: FP11SG does have a couple of reviews about the paint chipping, but it does not effect the performance or durability of the bat. It is most likely due to the bat being dropped onto the dirt after the ball is hit.
Is this bat good for a 15 year old that's 5' 2", and which size should she get? Second question would be is this bat better then the Jennie Finch G5 fastpitch bat? Which one would you recommend?
Asked by Gigi
Try using our bat coach to find out which length is best for your daughter. Here is the link. http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/ The Easton Synge is going to be a better bat, because of the composite material is better than alloy when it comes to fastpitch.
Daughter will be nine in May. 28, 29, or 30 inch bat? Not a power hitter.
Asked by H

I am considering the Demarini 2012 CF5 (-11) for my 11 yr old daughter. She currently is using the Easton aluminum 31" 19.5 oz. Which bat is better and would be closest to the one she currently has?
Asked by sandi
The Easton Synge: FP11SG Fastpitch is a one piece bat and will be most comparable to a one-piece alloy bat.
We're going back & forth between the Easton Synge & Demarini Vendetta C6. 10yr old contact hitter, not a power hitter. Which is better?
Asked by Mak
Many contact hitters who have average or below average strength prefer two piece bats. Although, most comes down to personal preference, I would lean towards the C6 since it's a two piece bat.
Can the bat be returned if like some of the reviews state the paint starts chipping?
Asked by Mike
The 2012 Easton Synge: FP11SG Fastpitch bat is covered under a full warranty through Easton. Paint chips will not effect the performance of the bat, but you would be able to send it back to Easton for a warranty replacement.
What is the break-in period on the Easton Synge?
Asked by tomv
We recommend 150-200 swings to fully break in the Easton Synge and any other composite barreled bat you may be interested in.
Is the Synge an end loaded bat? I am also looking at the 2013 DeMarini DXCFS; how do they compare and does -11 vs -11.5 make a difference? Bigger sweet spot? Thanks.
Asked by Jack
The 2012 Easton Synge is a balanced bat. However, it will be stiffer than the 2013 DeMarini DXCFS, better suited for a power hitter. The -11 and the -11.5 have the same size sweet spot.
Why does the bat not have a "ding" like many others?
Asked by Smash
The 2012 Easton Synge is a composite bat. Composite bats make a crack or thud type sound when hit and alloy bats make a ping type sound.

How does it compare against the 2011 Synge SRV6B Fastpitch (White/Black/Yellow model)?
Asked by Allan
Easton enlarged the size of the sweetspot this year and changed the color scheme, but otherwise these bats are going to be very similar.
I cannot decide between the Easton Synge: FP11SG and the Mizuno Avalanche ($74.99). Can you tell me the main differences?
Asked by Greg
The Easton Synge will have a one piece composite frame while the Mizuno Avalanche will be a one piece all alloy. The Avalanche will be an ounce lighter than the Synge because it has a drop of -12.5 and the Synge has a drop of -11.5.
No reviews are posted yet so do you have any feedback on this bat and how it is performing?
Asked by Pops
All of the feedback we've heard on this bat has been very positive. The expanded sweetspot gives the bat great "pop" and the bat is very easy to swing. It also has been said to have great control and balance.
How does the FP11SG compare with the DeMarini DXCFS?
Asked by Tom
The FP11SG is going to be a -11.5 drop. It is also going to have more of a expanded sweetspot.
DOES THE FP11SG HAVE THE WORDS "OFFICIAL SOFTBALL" STAMPED ON THE HANDLE? THIS STAMP IS NEEDED FOR DIXIE SOFTBALL PLAY.
Asked by SOFTBALL DAD 15
Yes. Just above the grip on the handle there is an "Official Softball" stamp.
Do we know yet how well this bat will compare to the 2011 Synge?
Asked by Softball Dad
Easton extended the sweet spot, and they changed the composite design. This bat will perform as good or better than the last Synge.
