Pros:  Absolutely no vibration on any hits on the yellow part, has a really sweet sound when you hit the ball, design is sweet, actually feels really light.

Cons:  After awhile it kinda loses its grip due to dirt, but it all depends on what batting gloves you have. I, personally, use my Franklins with this bat and I lose my grip sometimes. i started using pine tar on the bat and it has worked even better.

My son is 6 foot 2 and 180 pounds. He wants this bat more than the MAKO XL. Any models left of this bat?

Based upon your player's height and weight, we would make a general recommendation of going with a 34" BBCOR bat. Sadly, since Easton is not actively making this Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) or the 2015 XL1 BBCOR any longer, we would not be able to fulfill your request of getting this model of bat.

I am a Junior in high school. I'm 6'2'' and weigh 225 lbs. What size would you recommend?

Given your height and weight, I would recommend going with a 34" 31 oz. model of the Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB14X1.

My son is 12 years old. He is 5 foot 3 and weighs 105 pounds. Is he better off with a Mako or an XL1?

Ultimately, whether the Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) or Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) would be better would be based on the player's preference of a balanced or end-loaded style. However, given his size, I would assume that a balanced BBCOR bat like the MAKO would be a better choice.

Am I able to use this in Babe Ruth?

Yes, the Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is approved for play in Babe Ruth since it is BBCOR certified.

What are the differences between the MAKO and S1?

The MAKO is going to be a blend of the XL and S series from Easton. It will have the extended barrel of the XL and maintains the balanced feel of the S series. The S series will be more balanced and will also have a shorter barrel. The Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) will be end-loaded and have the extended barrel for a larger sweet spot.

I'm more of a contact hitter, should I go with the Mako or S1?

The Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is going to be designed for a power hitter and the Easton Mako and Easton S1 are both going to be designed for a contact hitter.

Which bat is more recommended, this XL1 or the 2015 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD FT BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC)?

The Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is a two piece composite bat with an end loaded swing weight. The 2015 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD FT BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) is a two piece hybrid bat with an end loaded swing weight. Both bats are high quality and would be good options for you. The choice is going to come down to personal preference on barrel material.

I'm 15 years old, about 6 foot 3 inches and weigh 160 pounds. What length bat would you recommend?

Frankie Expert

Is there a chance this bat will ever be sold here again in the 33" length?

Unfortunately, once we sell out of the Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (B14X1) in the 34"/31 oz size, we will most likely not be carrying it again in any size. It is an older 2014 model and is no longer being produced by Easton.

Do you sell this in a size of 31 inches?

Is this bat more balanced than the DeMarini VooDoo Overlord?

The Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) and the DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXVDC) will feature similar end loaded swing weights. The largest difference is that the XL1 is a full composite model, while the Overlord is a hybrid with an alloy barrel.

How on Sunday does the price go from $139.99 to $159.99 on Tuesday and now to $199.99 the same Thursday?

The pricing on the Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) can vary based on our inventory level and how much we are able to get it for from the manufacturer. If it has been within 30 days that the price was featured lower, you can call in to place the order and we can honor the previous price.

Which bat is better; the S1 2012 or the S1 2013?

The Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB13S1) and the Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB11S1) are both extremely similar by design. The major differences would be cosmetic in nature.

My 14 year old son is 5 foot 8 inches and weighs 195 pounds, he's more of a power hitter. What would you recommend?

My son is 5'5" and weighs 190 lbs. Would the 34" bat be too long for him?

For his size we would recommend a 32" in the Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1). A 34" would most likely be too long for him and slow down his swing speed.

My son is 13 years old, 5'8" and 122 lbs. What size bat do you recommend for him?

For a player of his size, our bat coach would recommend the Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) in a 31" 28 oz. model. If he has been hitting well with the XL1 throughout his career, we would not recommend changing the bat.

Should I use this bat if I'm a hitter who hits for average with some power. I'm a big kid not tall but strong. I don't like how the s1 feels.

The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) has a slightly end loaded swing which will add more power to your swing. We typically recommend this bat for power hitters and since it has only a slightly end loaded feel, the XL1 would be a good choice for you.

My son is about 5 foot 2 and weighs 110 pounds. Which bat should be best for him between the XL1 or the S1 and what size should he use?

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend that he use a 30 inch bat. Because neither the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) nor the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14S1) come in that size, you may be able to get away with using a 31 inch but I would recommend in that case that you go with the S1. It is more balanced and will be easier for him to adjust to.

I need a good bat for my son. He is 150 pounds and 5' 5". What is the best for him?

Without knowing much about your player, we really couldn't say what would be the best bat. Based on his height and weight, a 31" bat would be our recommendation. This 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is a great bat for a stronger player because it has a slightly end loaded swing weight. I would say that more players would use a balanced bat more efficiently. Good balanced options from Easton would be the MAKO or S1. Choosing a bat really comes down to fitting the design to the player's preference. I would have him reflect on the design of bats he's used well in the past, and choose a model that is close to that.

What would be a good drop for a freshman in high school? I'm only 5'7" and 155 lbs.

In high school and collegiate play, a drop -3 is required. However, based on your size, I would suggest 32" in the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat: (BB14X1).

Which wood bats have a similar handle to this?

Some common turn models that offer a 29/32" handle include the I13, 141, and many versions of the 243. For an overall feel most similar to the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1), I would suggest a 243 turn model.

The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is a great model for a power hitter and has good durability. The alloy barrel 2014 Easton XL3 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X3) is also a nice end-loaded bat that is durable and good for a power hitter.

I am trying to decide on bat for a 14 year old. He is 6' 190 lbs and has good hand speed. Can you tell me the difference between the S1, XL1 and the MAKO?

The similarities between the three bats is that they are all two-piece fully composite bats. The Easton S1 has a balanced swing weight and is a terrific bat for a contact hitter. The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) has an end loaded swing weight with an extra long barrel, which provides the bat with one of the biggest sweet spots on the market. The XL1 is typically a great bat for power hitters. The Easton MAKO combines the balance of the Easton S1 and the extra long barrel from the XL1 into one bat. The MAKO also uses Easton's newest TCT Thermo Composite making it one of the lightest swinging BBCOR bats available. The MAKO is a generally better for a contact hitter.

I am 5 foot 5 and weigh 104 pounds. What bat would be best between the Mako or the XL1?

Both the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) and the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) would be nice options. The preference would be based less on your size and more on whether you prefer a balanced feel like on the MAKO or an end-loaded feel like the XL1.

If you like an end-loaded feel like what is featured on the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) a 31 inch size would probably fit the best for you.

I have slow hands and I am 14. I am really strong so I have a ton of pop but I need a bat that can help me get my hands around. What bat do I need?

The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is a terrific bat for power hitters, but is not a great option for players that need help increasing their bat speed. The Easton MAKO is a better option for power hitters who need to increase their bat speed. The MAKO is one of the lightest swinging and most balanced BBCOR bats on the market.

Both the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCFC) are nice options and perform very well. The major difference would be that the CF6 is balanced and the XL1 is end-loaded and has a slightly extended barrel.

Yes, the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14X1) is a great option for a 15 year old power hitter. The XL1 and the Mako are both very good bats, the difference between the two is that the Mako is going to be balanced in feel and the XL1 will have an end loaded feel.

I am 13 and 120 lbs. What Easton should I get? What size?

The best way to determine the correct bat size for a player is based on their height and weight. However, 13 year old players typically use a 32" bat. Power hitters tend to prefer the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR (BB14X1) because of the end loaded swing weight. If you are more a contact hitter, the Easton S1 would be a better option.

The CF5 along with the 2014 Easton XL1 (BB14X1) are bother very good bats. If you are looking to generate a little more power in your swing I would go with the Easton XL1 (BB14X1).

Which is more endloaded, the 2013 XL2 or the 2014 XL1?

The alloy barrel of the Easton XL2 does give the bat a slightly more end loaded feel than the composite barrel of the XL1. The composite in the barrel of the XL1 seems to cut a bit more weight out of the bat, giving it only a slightly end loaded swing weight.

We would suggest using a 32" bat for someone the size of your son, although you could go up or down 1" depending on other factors such as if he likes to choke up on the bat, how far he stands from the plate, how strong he is, etc. Some of our best selling BBCOR bats right now are the Rawlings VELO (BBVELO), the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo (DXVDC), and the Louisville Slugger EXOGRID 3 (BB13EX).

Please let me know what the result may be from others using this bat in every game. Thanks, a Baseball Mom.

Using the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR (BB14X1) for team use should only help the composite materials break-in. The more the bat is broken in the better the performance will be for your son and his teammates. Rest assured ma'am, and tell those boys to keep up the good work!

It will come down to a personal preference between balanced vs. end loaded design. The MAKO is a very well balanced option while the XL1 model is going to have an end loaded swing weight.

I am a power hitter, which would be better for me the XL1 or the Mako?

The 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR: BB14X1 Adult is going to be best for you, because of the end loaded swing weight.

Since the XL series is end-loaded and the S series is balanced, if I swung a 32" 29 oz S1 and a 32" 29 oz XL1 would the XL1 feel heavier?

Correct. If you held the 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR, you would not feel a difference in weight. However, the XL1 will feel heavier than the S1 when you swing it because of the end-load.

When do the XL2's come out? How would the balance compare to the 2013 model?

Can this bat be used with plastic or dimpled baseballs?

We don't recommend hitting dimpled ball with any bat like the 2014 Easton XL1 because they are more dense than baseballs and can damage the bat.

Will the CF5 LE and the 2014 XL1 last the same amount of time, or is one more durable than the other?

Unfortunately, it is impossible to correctly estimate the life of any bat. However, the composite barrels of both the CF5 LE and 2014 Easton XL1 BBCOR: BB14X1 Adult give you the best shot at lasting performance. After the bat is broken-in, it will perform at a high level for a longer period of time than alloy. Customer reviews are your best insight into the longevity of a bat, but this 2014 XL1 lacks reviews as it has not been released to the public.

Description for Easton XL1 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB14X1
The next generation of the Easton XL1 Power Brigade has arrived. Now in its third season, this groundbreaking line of bats is unlike anything else on the field today. The concept is simple: Help players hit for power. However, Easton realizes that different players achieve a powerful swing in different ways. That's why the Power Brigade is divided into two distinct series - the XL Series (XL1, XL2, and XL3) and the Speed Series (S1, S2, and S3). The XL Series is designed for bigger, stronger hitters who derive their power from a bat with more mass. Smaller length to weight ratios, and an extra-long barrel with a massive sweet spot and a slight end load characterize the XL Series. The Speed Series, on the other hand, helps players increase their swing speed in order to generate more power. These bats feature lighter length to weight ratios, a lower M.O.I., and a balanced feel. Further trying to equip players with their perfect bat, Easton offers all of its Power Brigade bats in a two-piece IMX Composite/SIC Black Carbon design (XL1, S1), a two-piece THT100 Scandium Alloy/SIC Black Composite hybrid design (XL2, S2), and a one-piece THT Scandium Alloy design (XL3, S3). Two of the highest performing materials ever used on a bat, Easton's patented IMX Composite optimizes the sweet spot for maximum performance, while their THT Scandium Alloy provides solid durability and allows for a larger alloy sweet spot than is seen anywhere else on the field. Throw in an array of additional world-class Easton technology, and you've got a line of bats that can't be topped. Easton: Engineered for Glory! The XL1 is BBCOR Certified and approved for high school and collegiate play. It is backed by Easton's Exclusive Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
