Pros: I am in love with this bat. I used it in my 11u nations baseball tourny, and it was great. It was cold and the ball still flew off the bat. I went 4 for 4 with 2 walks. I would definently recomend this for power hitters, who like composite bats.
Pros: This bat is freakin'awesome! I've only used it a couple times in batting practice but this bat is going to be amazing. It has so much pop, you just feel so strong when the ball shoots off the bat. plus, it has VIOLENT SOUND!!
Cons: The length to weight ratio is more of a -7 than a -8 but it doesnt really matter I should have had a heavier bat anyway.
Pros: This bat is amazing. Great for power hitters, which I am. Not too great for contact hitters because of the end-load. Anyways, I have been KILLING the ball lately. Everyone keeps complainig of the break in, but its not long. They complain about the price, too. But it's worth it. Everyone thinks the end-load is bad, but its not. I'm 12 and i got the 31/23 and its a great bat.
Pros: The ball jumps off the barrel. My son is 8 years old and plays 9U. He uses this bat for slower pitchers. It helps keep his hands back and he crushs the ball to a 200 ft fence.
My sons only weighs 75lbs but he is strong enough to uses a drop 8 on slower pitchers. On faster pitchers he uses a S1 drop 10.

I'm in the middle of a contact hitter and power hitter. Which bat will help me generate more power, the XL1 or CF5?
Asked by xtreme 34
The Easton XL1 is an end loaded bat, perfect for generating more power.
I'm 13 years old. Which bat would you recommend the XL series or CF5. Which XL bat is better the XL1 or XL2?
Asked by xtreme 34
The 2012 DeMarini CF5 would be more comparable to the Easton XL1 because they are slightly end loaded. The 2013 CF5 is a more balanced bat. The main difference between the XL1 and the XL2 is that the XL1 is a fully composite bat, whereas the XL2 has a composite handle and aluminum barrel.
When i replace an easton bat do i have to give back the bat that i want replaced?
Asked by solo

I'm thirteen years old and know that high school is coming soon I'm swinging a 31"/23oz bat now but I'm wondering should I get the -5 or -8 XL1. The barrel on the -8 is bigger which I like I don't want to go strait to a BBCOR yet please help me make this decision.
Asked by wyatt
The sweet spot on the -5 and -8 XL3 will be the same size. If you have good enough bat speed to swing the -5 we would recommend doing that, so you'll be better adjusted once you have to use the BBCOR bats. If not, then the -8 will be fine too.
I bought this bat about 2 weeks ago and have only done tee work, soft toss, and one BP session of about 20 hits. Its a 32/24 and now whenever I tip the bat one end to the other inside I can hear something rattling almost like sand? Can you explain what this is? And will it affect my bat's performance and/or durability?
Asked by thebaseballguy8
This is typically caused by a small piece or pieces of epoxy glue used on the endcap that has broken loose. This happens when a little too much glue is used and causes a little "overflow". This will not effect the performance of the bat or it's durability. However, it may make it eligible for a warranty replacement, if you were to contact Easton at 1-888-259-1297.
Will you be getting anymore 31/23 in stock? And is the barrel on the XL1 longer than the barrel on the XL2 and XL3?
Asked by Kid
Unfortunately, we will not be getting any additional sizes in stock. The barrel lengths are the same between the XL1,2 & 3.
My son is 5'2", 137 lbs.. a contact & power hitter. We have the Xl1 youth 31/21 & looking for a big barrel for travel ball. Is the 32/24 too heavy for him?
Asked by Cindy
That is the most difficult question for us to answer, as it's impossible to say without being able to see and analyze his swing. However, it's fairly common for players to move up 2-3 ounces in weight with every new bat. If he had good swing speed and bat control with the 21 oz bat, then he should be just fine with the 32" 24 oz model.

Hi, I'm going into Babe Ruth right now I'm using the XL1 Youth. I'm a big kid would you prefer the CF5 or XL1 more?
Asked by Nickname
Either the Easton XL1 or the DeMarini CF5 would be a good choice. Both are two-piece composite bats and are very similar. The main difference is the XL1 is end loaded and the CF5 is very balanced. Also keep in mind that composite bats must be BBCOR certified in order to be legal for Babe Ruth play.

Any model of the Easton XL1 will be a two-piece fully composite made of the same composite material. The only differences are the length to weight ratios.

My son has a Easton Titan he has been use a few years 31" 22 oz. He is 11 and has very good power and speed can you tell me what bat would help him add a couple of feet to his hits . I think his Titan is a alloy bat . Will a composite bat help him gain a few feet on his hits?
Asked by Hammer
The XL1 would be a great choice for your son. It is a composite bat that will outperform most alloy bats. It also is slightly end-loaded for those stronger hitters with above average swing speed.
I'm not a power hitter but i can still swing the end loaded bats with power. Should I get the Xl1 or the S1. I don't care if one is end loaded Which has more power?
Asked by dylan
Since you said you can swing an end-loaded bat with power, I would recommend the XL1. If you can generate the same swing speed with an end-loaded bat as you can with a balanced bat, then you should see better performance with the XL.
Does this have a bigger sweet spot then the S1?
Asked by Ther
The XL1 does have a slightly larger sweet spot than the S1. The XL1 has an extended barrel and an larger sweet spot, which gives it it's end loaded feel.
Is this barrel longer than the XL2's barrel? And will it be legal in 13U travel ball as well as juniors(which is part of little league)?
Asked by Evan
The barrels on these two bats will be the same length. The XL1 will not be legal in juniors. The rules for Junior Little League play state that all composite barrel bats must be BBCOR certified. This particular model is not BBCOR certified. Only adult -3 bats will have that certification.
i am 5/1 and 90 lbs and 12 years old and about to move to the bigger field. and want to to no if i should get the s1 or xl1 i have alot of power im just small
Asked by vin
If your more of a power hitter, the XL1 is going to be a better fit for you. This is from the Power Brigade series, and is designed to transition power into bat speed creating more distance on your hits. The XL1 also features an extended barrel for more hitting surface. Here is the link to view more features on the SL11X18. http://www.justbats.com/product/easton-xl1--sl11x18-senior-league/14528/
Hey I'm in the middle between a power hitter and a contact hitter. I can handle a slightly end loaded bat but still have a little balanced which of the XL series should i get?
Asked by Dylan
I would recommend the XL1. It's a high performing two piece, all composite bat that is great for stronger hitters who still like that two piece feel.
I'm a 6'2" 218lb 13 yr old, and I am trying to decide between the XL1(-8), Marucci Black(-8), & Exo(-9). Which one would you recommend?
Asked by Big Red 33
Well this depends on what kind of hitter you are. If you are more of a contact/gap hitter, then I would recommend going with a two piece bat like the Easton XL1 or the Marucci Black. If you are more of a power hitter then I would suggest going with a one piece bat like the EXOGRID2.
Purchased XL2 from you for fall ball (XL1 was out of stock). Looking for backup bat for season. Have always used composite but like the XL2 alloy. Can u tell me main difference of XL1 & XL2. 12yr, 5'6" 142lb, power hitter
Asked by Junior
The main difference is that the XL1 has a composite barrel and the XL2 has an alloy barrel. Both will feel slightly end-loaded. Composites do have the tendency to outperform alloy.
Trying to decide between XL1 and Omen in a drop 8 for a smaller 13 year old. Can you contrast the differences between the two?
Asked by ME
Both bats are pretty similar in design and performance. The main difference is that the Omen is more balanced, and the XL1 is a little more end loaded. If he has a pretty strong swing, I would probably suggest going with the XL1. If he needs help with this swing, I would suggest going with a more balanced bat like the Omen.
My son has a Easton Speed Senior league bat but I need to replace since does not have the USSSA stamp. Would this be a similar bat?
Asked by Karen
The SL11X18 will be very similar to the Speed. This bat is an all composite bat just like the Speed was. The XL series bats have bigger barrels for maximum power. This bat also has the USSSA stamp.
Which bat is better, power brigade XL1 or CF5?
Asked by Mason
Both bats are very similar and will perform just about the same, as they are both a two piece composite design. The XL1 has an extended barrel design with a larger sweet spot and will be a little more end heavy. The CF5 will be more balanced and gives players the ability to swing faster with less effort and create more power. Both are great bats and you can't go wrong with either!
My son is 8 years old and had the 2012 XL1 small barrel and was crushing the ball. He decided that he did not want to play rec ball anymore and now is playing travel ball. He has always played with a drop 10 and I noticed that the XL1 big barrel only comes in a drop 8. The S1 comes in a drop 10. Which 29 inch bat should I get the XL1 or S1?
Asked by banker1991
That's a good question, and without being able to see him swing, it's a difficult one to answer. The 29 inch XL1 will feel significantly heavier and more end-loaded than the 29 inch S1. I feel that the 29 inch XL1 may be a little too big of a jump given it's end-loaded feel and those added 2 ounces. I would lean towards the S1.
Will the XL1 or Omen be closer to to the Easton Speed?
Asked by Antonio
The Easton S1 is the model that Easton made to replace the Omen since it is being discontinued. The S1 will be a pretty balanced bat, while the XL1 is going to be a little more end loaded.
Which has more pop, the Omen or the XL1? Which is more balanced?
Asked by Antonio
Since both the Omen and the XL1 are made out of composite material, they will have very similar pop. The XL1 has an extended barrel with a larger sweet spot so it will feel more end loaded, while the Omen is pretty balanced.
how is this bat different than the Easton Omen BNC11XL?
Asked by Don
These two bats are actually very similar in design and materials, but they just have a different name for 2012 from 2011.
Just bought this bat and we love it.Is it legal to use in the Junior division of Little League.
Asked by kw

Asked by David
The Z1000 is just slightly more balanced.
does this bat have more pop than the demarini cf5?
Asked by bravesboy!!!!!
This bat will have similar pop to the CF5. Both of these bats will have an end loaded feel and be more for power hitters due to that end loaded feel.
I weigh 92 lbs., im 5-2, and i'm a well hitting leadoff or #2 hitter. Which bat is better, Easton XL1: SL11X18 Senior League or Easton Omen: BNC11XL Senior League
Asked by playmaker7
The XL1 would be my choice.
will the composite XL1 out perform the XL2, or will they be similar in weight, pop, distance and feel?
Asked by Power
They are going to be similar, just the time to get the pop is slightly different. The XL2 will be a little more immediate since it has the alloy barrel. The XL1 will take a little break in time, but well worth it once broken in. Great pop.
Is there a 31/23 bat?
Asked by mel
They do make them, we are currently out of stock in them. Feel free to give us a call to get an update on when more are arriving.

Asked by mike

Is this approved for 14u Babe Ruth?
Asked by DD23
This bat does have the USSSA 1.15 stamp on the barrel of the bat. I would still make sure with your coach or the head of the league that you are able to use big barrel composite bats.
Is this bat end loaded like the small barrel XL1 -10 (which I like) or balanced like the big barrel XL1 -10? Which bat does it sound like?
Asked by Coach
This bat is going to be a balanced feel
Is this bat better than the b3? I am a power hitter and for me it does not matter about the weight. Which has more 'pop'?
Asked by dodgerblue
Both would be awesome, both have tremendous pop. But if I had to choose, I'd lean toward the B3 ONLY because it is a one piece composite, and power hitters generally prefer 1 piece bats to 2 piece.

Description for Easton XL1 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL11X18
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!
