Easton S1: JBB11S1 Junior Big Barrel
Average Customer Review
This bat is awesome. My son is cranking the ball with this bat and it's not broken in yet. Several kids on our team hit the ball to the fence (200') this weekend. The bat is Hot. We have been using the 2012 Louisville Slugger for the past year. This bat has a much larger sweet spot and is a hotter bat.
none so far. It is worth the extra $.
The bat has a huge sweet spot, with a lot of pop. The bat is indeed balanced & equal. The bat really improves bat speed. I only wish since it is lighter than my little guys old bat that I would of went up in length. I guess it will just make me have to move up and start breaking in a 28 inch sooner!!!
It was hot out of the wrapper, but as mentioned/recommended I noticed an improvement after 200-300 swings.
Increased bat speed
We play 8U coach pitch with real baseballs. 2 kids have used this bat every day over the last week so it's broken in. Sweet spot is very small and hand vibration on anything outside the sweet spot is bad. After the first day in the cage, excess glue inside the bat had broken off as you can hear fragment pieces slide inside the bat when you turn it from end to end. The bat description is like the original white Stealth that started all the bat ban but is no where close to the performance. This bat should be labeled for knee coach pitch or tee ball. Stand up 8 yr olds should avoid this bat.
bought this bat two weeks ago for my travel 8u team. It has a nice pop and is light weight so some of my smaller kids can swing it with some force. I am so pleased with it I am going to buy the next size up for my bigger kids.
Better start using it as soon as you get it so you can break it in. It is just like any composite bat you have to break it in before you get the full potential.
Looks great. Junior Drop 12 and balanced weighting is easier to swing for my son than the Senior end load weighted S1 counterpart. He swings this 28" faster and more controlled than his 27" Worth Senior Lithium Prodigy.
It does take a lot of breaking in and does have a small sweet spot. It does have a lot of vibration if not hit in the sweet spot even after regripping it with the Easton VRS tape. The S3 and other metal bats have more generous sweet spots.
I got The 28" 16oz bat for my 5 year old and he loves it. He hits it in the outfield every time he connects. All the other kids on his team started batting with it. They had the old white easton,a reflex like us and alot of v grips none can hang with this bat.
My six year old son has had this bat for a few days, so it's pretty much fresh out of the plastic, and I have noticed a complete difference in his hitting performance due to the -12oz drop and the balance of the bat. I would definitely encourage any parent to spend the money for this bat. 6u CP.
This bat is amazing. My son is a first year coach pitch player, and the adjustment from t-ball to coach pitch was pretty rough at the plate. I saw that his confidence was a bit low, so we tried the Easton S1: JBB11S1 Junior Big Barrel. Once he received the bat, his first at bat he hit the ball further than he had ever. After that his confidence grew. Now the bat is a team favorite and everybody use it.
I WISH I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE 26'/14oz bat!
This is a very Hot Bat! The first game my son went two for two hitting to hard shots that ended up in the out field.I recommend this bat not bad for a 5 yr old that weighs 50 lbs.
Very expensive bat. And the break in time that a composite bat requires. We hit a few hundred balls .
I bought this bat for my 7 year old son and seen immediate results with his batting primarily with his bat speed and power. Before he couldn't hit the ball out of the infield but now everything is cosistently hit in the outfield. This has done wonders for his confidence.
None as of yet.
This Bat is great. When it arrived we went to the batting cages and I threw my son roughly 400 pitches. He especially likes the light weight. He is about 4' 50 lbs, 7 years old and thought most say get a 27", he has the 26". His first pitch at practice he sent the ball to deep center field and the first baseman's Grand parents bought him one and he is hitting like crazy. My son also has the 26" drop 10 Xl1 junior Big Barrel, he uses both but, definetly loves the S1 Junior Big Barrel best. Right length, Right Weight, swings great and hits the long ones.
Great bat for smaller players! It gives them the confidence to go out there and give it their best. We have several for our team in different lengths and they were great out the box for opening day!
None so far except other teams will definitely be getting this bat after we performed so well opening day this past Saturday!
Lite and durable, seems well constructed. I use this and another V12 on my 5 & 6 year old ball team. My kids dropped there bats quick and now only use the Easton. It has made all the difference in there distance. Happy, happy, happy coach.
Does scratch easily but it's a bat.
