How does the balance compare to the speed series lineup Easton has? Recommended for contact hitters?

The 2013 RIP-IT Adult will be comparable to the Easton S3. They are both one-piece alloy bats. The Easton S1 and Easton S2 will be two-piece bats which will add more flex to the swing being even better for contact hitters.

How does the balance of the B1303 compare to a full size 243 or 43 model wooden bat, which will feel closer to the weight balance of the wooden bat the regular Rip It or the Air? Like to switch between the wood & one of the Rip It bats without feeling any change in balance.

A wood 243 model will have a more end loaded feel due to the fact 243 models have a large barrel. The red Rip-It B1303 is going to have a closer weight balance to a 243 model and would be the correct choice for you. The Air model is a much more balanced bat and designed to increase a players swing speed.

Son is 15, 6'4" and 185 lbs and a power hitter. Is this bat better or should we consider the newer technology of the 2013 Prototype Air? He trains with MaxBat wood bats in the cage. Thanks.

The only difference between the regular Rip-It Prototype and the Prototype Air, is that the Air is more well balanced with a lighter swing weight. If your son is a power hitter with good swing speed, the regular Rip-It Prototype would be a great choice.
