Pros: Purchased a 31" for my son. It has incredible pop out of the wrapper. The ball pierces through the air when hit on the sweet spot. Also, the low gloss silver looks great. By far better than all previous combats and mikens I've purchased. This bat exceeded my expectations,a rare occurrence.
Cons: Not really a negative, but the 31" XL1 might be a little heavy for smaller players. My son is 5'1" at 10 years old and swings it great.
Pros: I purchased a 31" XL1 for my son and the barrel of this bat is as big as the barrel on my daughters 31" softball bat. My son is hitting the cover off the ball with the XL1 and has newly found power to the opposite field. I was never a big believer in bat technology making a huge difference, but there is no doubt in my mind that this bat is making a difference.

Is it worth it to search on various websites for the 2012 XL1 or is the 2014 XL1 as good?
Asked by purple2
The Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB11X1) and the Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat (YB14X1) are very similar in design and will perform to the same level.
Why did Easton STOP using CNT(Carbon Nanotube Technology)? I noticed the 2011 models were the last to use CNT. What's the word?
Asked by Al
I would contact Easton's Customer Service Department at (888) 259-1297. They will be able to better answer your question as to why they stopped using their Carbon Nanotube Technology.
Which year of the XL1 series has a longer barrel; YB11X1 or YB14X1?
Asked by Al
The 2012 Easton XL1 (YB11X1) and the 2014 model will feature the same barrel length. Easton didn't change much in the overall makeup of the XL1, so both years will be very similar. The only differences will be cosmetic.
As the industry leader for over 30 years, Easton Baseball/Softball has continued to raise the bar with innovation, originality and ingenuity. It began in 1969, when Easton produced the first true aluminum bat, and has continued throughout the past three decades with virtually all significant industry "firsts" having been pioneered by Easton: first CU31 bat; first C405 bat; first titanium bat; first Carbon Core bat; first Scandium bat; etc. The trend continues today with bats such as the Tri-Shell and the ConneXion.

Description for Easton XL1 Youth Baseball Bat: YB11X1
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 approved for play in all major youth associations. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!
