Pros:  The ball flys of bat, purchased the MAKO & the LXT, my daughter first just loved the feel of the MAKO & when we went to batting practice when she began hitting all heads turned it was a real showcase AWESOME BAT.

Cons:  $349 was steep but the look on my daughters face after coming out the cages was worth millions

Pros:  This bat is awesome. I got recruited using this bat. Im 17 years old and have been playing since I could walk. So a lot of bats have been in my hands, but this one just tops them all off.

Cons:  Nothing physical, just the price! Payed for this one on my own!

Pros:  Looks great. May be the right bat for some, but wasn't for us.

Cons:  On our second FP14MK in four months. The first one developed significant cracking about half-way up the barrel after 3 months of mostly batting practice. I've read other reviews of cracking on the shell of Easton bats, but this was almost entirely around the barrel. Easton replaced it very quickly, which was great, but still just not what was expected or comforting. My daughter is 14 and a power hitter and has used end-loaded bats primarily in the past. While this bat is more balanced, we thought we would give it a try given the great reviews. It might be a great bat for some, but she hasn't been able to get the same power out of this bat as she has with her old Stealth and she gets a lot more vibration in the handle than with the Stealth. Given the price, the need to replace so quickly and decrease in power she's seen with this bat, it's not for us.

Pros:  First hit with the bat was to the fence. Missed being a home run by inches. My daughter had some great hits with this bat at the tourney. Can't wait until next time.

Cons:  The price, of course. LOL. But, it's a quality bat.

Pros:  This bat is the best bat I have ever used. It has way more pop than my previous Cf5 bat and is way more durable. I wanted to try something new since I usually go for the demarini bats. So glad I did! I highly recommend this bat to anyone looking for a great quality bat. It is very similar to the stealth bat also. Definitely the best bat out on the market as of now!!!!!

Cons:  nothing really ..maybe the cost but it definitely is worth the money!

Pros:  This bat needs no break-in time. It's hot right out of the wrapper. It has a larger sweet spot for pitches of ALL angles! We LOVE our Mako! My 42 hit .700 in the Fall and had 22.34% of the teams runs. She's 5'8...2nd year 12U and swings a 34/24 like it's a 30/20.

Cons:  NONE

Pros:  Great looking bat, Daughter has been working with it since Christmas. Hit some solid shots in her first two tournaments.

Cons:  We have broke the bat it properly and we cant see the extra pop that people have raved about. 2012 and 13 Xeno was hotter out of the wrapper and we have tested the LXT. The LXT is hot but cant see any difference between it and the Xeno. We Just bought a CF6 insane and it out performed the Mako on the first day. Mako is not a bad bat if you got nothing to compare it to, but the Xeno, LXT or CF6 are in my opinion the better bat.

Pros:  My daughter just turned 12 weighing in at 98 lbs and is 5'6" .. tall skinny thing .. her first tourney with this bat she was ripping them to the outfield at almost every bat. One even hit about 6 inches below the top of the fence, almost her first over the fence homerun (playing up in 14u). She is very pleased with this bat, and so am I. It was worth the $350 to see her batting take off. I Highly recommend this bat.

Cons:  NONE!

Cons:  nothing performance based just price...

Pros:  -Large sweet spot -Oustanding pop -Virtually no sting -Feels very light but has enough mass to really strike the ball -Great for slappers/ people looking for more distance of fly balls.

I'll keep uploading to inform you,though.

Cons:  -Thin grip -Everyone wants to use it! -Expensive -White so it gets dirty easily

Pros:  My daughter liked the bat. It has a lot of pop out of the wrapper. The bat would be a 5 star if not for the following issue.

Cons:  She had the bat for 3 months but only used it at three indoor practices and two outdoor games (all above 60°F). After hitting a bomb over center field on 5/8/2014 she noticed a crack in the bat. We contacted Easton to begin the replacement process. We were told it would take two weeks. This is not good with tournament season upon us.

Pros:   my daughter plays high school and 12u travel ball. We bought the mako May 2014, the first tornament she had with the mako she hit the first hr on the season. It has great pop and it has a wicked sound to it when it hits the ball. i am very pleased with it. Money well spent. my daughter loves it!!!

Cons:  the cost , but it is worth it to see the smiles on my daughters face. wish it had a different color besides white on it, gets dirty easy.

Pros:  I have had this bat for about 6 months now. Although I was hurt for 2 of those months with a high ankle sprain this bat has still improved my batting average. I love the looks of it. I have never once felt a stinging hand from hitting the ball off the barrel. I have had Easton for about 4 years now and I love them. This bat has gotten be tons of triples and doubles. When I hit the ball it's hard solid contact. I would recommend this bat for contact hitters.

Cons:  I seem to be one of the only girls on my team that enjoys this bat. (out of 6) The others like their LXT's or CF6's. The barrel chips way too easily.

Pros:  Let me say this, my daughter uses an end loaded bat but we picked this up to see if she would like it. With that said: this bat does have alot of pop to it. Ball seems to excellerate of the barrell. It seems like a very good bat...

Cons:  If you/ your daughter like an end loaded bat this may not be the bat for you. She tried several different times to 'like' this bat, but she said that it was just didnt feel right for her.

Pros:  I am a 15 year old tournament player.I am also a switch hitter and usually hit line drives from the right side.This bat has given me more power than any other bat I have used. This bat is by far the best bat I have ever swung. It has amazing pop and you barely have to swing and the ball goes flying. I also think that it has the best power out of the box. Many people say that their mako has cracked or broken but mine never has. I recommended thus bat to anyone looking for a fast swing speed but also amazing power.

Cons:  Absolutely nothing

Pros:  Nothing good to say about this bat...

Cons:  Went through 3 bats for the same issue, you got it, the barrel cracked! It's funny that when I called Easton's warranty department they never had a complaint about the cracking, but yet they were quick about replacing the bat. I tried to get my money back but was unable to because the bat comes back from warranty with a "NOT FOR RESALE" etched. But the third bat I got back did not have the etching on it, went back to Dick's (where I purchased it) and they were able to refund my money back and I bought my daughter the CF-7 which is an amazing bat. During tournament season this the last you want to worry about. Stay away from this bat...

Pros:  A lot of pop once broken in. Balanced but not quite as balanced as the Xeno...not a bad thing but takes some time for some to adjust. Not as much noise as the Xeno...not a bad thing either watching the ball travel farther. No regrets purchasing this over the Xeno. I think the price difference weighs in a lot with many. Waiting to try the Mako Tora before I buy to be sure the swivel handle isn't a bust. $350 for the Mako was alot to pay but $450 for the Mako Tora is too much to pay to be a guinea pig.

Cons:  Price, price, price...

Pros:  Great Bat for home runs, ball flies off the bat. That is why we have stuck with it

Cons:  we purchased one used it a couple of times before the end of season. After a few practices it cracked. very visible crack. Sent it back got a replacement right away. Season ended then took it out when practice for this season started. Again cracked this time worse, extremely visible. Being it was the second bat I was very very concerned because now it was softball season again. Received the "third" bat from Easton. Have now used it the season. We clean it after each use and have found not cracks...knock on wood. Very disappointed with the cracking but they did replace it immediately. This bat however when it is placed in a bag and pushed down into their bags, the orange paint at the end chips off freely. It also has many paint chips throughout the bat showing. you can easily tell the difference between paint chipping and a crack. the cracks looked like a feathered crack on a windshield. The two bats cracked 3 inches lengthwise never width wise. Just be very observant of the bat

Pros:  Good pop and feel.

Cons:  Two bats cracked within 3 months. Easton suggested we "try a bigger bat. Maybe she hits the ball too hard." !!! Player is well within the charts for her size bat. New product is popular, expensive, and perhaps not durable. Waiting for the third bat to be replaced-- hope Easton does not balk.

Pros:  Bought 30" drop 10 and my 7 yr old (4'4" 80 lbs) daughter took it out of the wrapper and her first hit traveled 150 ft.... She has been crushing the ball ever since. I can't wait until she finally breaks it in!!!! She plays on a 9U Travel Team and she lent it to the 11U Travel team, they were are crushing the ball. Very sweet Bat

Cons:  Price is a bit steep, but well worth it. her 9U travel teammates try to use it but it is too heavy for them. The bat is white so it gets dirty quickly, but my daughter cleans it every night after she uses it...
