Easton V12: BV22 Junior Big Barrel
Average Customer Review
Great pop. A Must have for your arsenal. My 8u team has hit the ball very hard to date,no matter what bat they used. I brought the V12 to the cages last week, now all the parents are running out to buy one. Ball jumps off the bat. I inspected the bat afterwards no dents or cracks. Great bat for the money.
I'm not sure on the weight? We have kids that are small and some big. Nobody had a hard time swinging the marked 17oz bat, and I bring it to them. Not one of these coaches just lobs the ball. Anyone worried Easton has a 400 day warrenty and they will honor it. They replaced several of the Stealth bats last year.
This bat has really suprised me. My 55lb. 7year old is using the 25"15. It has good pop and appears to be more balanced than most big barrel coach pitch bats. This is allowing him to have bat speed that others have taken away due to being unbalanced. The price is an added bonus.
great pop. ball jumps off bat. Probably good for for 5-10 ABs. see cons for further details.
not very durable. 8 year-old son dented bat at only his second BP session. probably due to single wall construction. Son plays 8U USSSA. Had bat less than a week; it's on the way to Easton for warranty replacement. let's see how that goes.
great pop, well priced yes it dents but so does the worth, anderson and every other single wall bat for more money thats how they get there light weight and pop by compromiseing durability as long as it has warranty you get a bat for a yearand a few months
none sons whole team uses it
My grandson is playing in Youth for 6 year olds for the first time. I got him a cheaper bat and he had trouble hitting the ball. I saw the other team members batting with the V 12 so I purchased him one. He is now the best batter on his team. His batting confidence has gone sky high. He now enjoys ball and wants to stay with it. Thank you for helping to build my grandsons confidence
Great bat. My 5-year old has hit 5 home runs with this bat. More pop than I could have ever imagined. Has given him so much more confidence. He has the 26-16 oz. Will move up to the 27-17 oz. next year. Will definitely get the same Easton V12 again.
None that I can think of.
Good sound and pop out of the box. Decent bat for young travel ball players.
Dents way too easily. My 8u son put 2 dents in his after 15 to 20 pitches in practice. There are 3 of these on our travel team all have dents. Sent ours back to Easton requesting a different bat.
Nice pop. Several kids on my son's team use this bat and they are the distance hitters with the most contact. This will be my next bat purchase. My son uses the bat now and he hits farther and with more contact.
Should have bought this bat instead of the Easton Reflex.
One of the best bats available that is legal in Dizzy Dean league. I bought a 25/15 for my son and the whole team loved it. Now several teammates have a V12 in various sizes. Mine has had a lot of use and has no dents or dings. I will be buying a V12 in 26/16 for fallball.
None that I can think of. My bat gets shared by several boys and gets a lot of use so it is scratched up but otherwise intact.
Well balanced, great looking, nice pop and sound. I bought this for my 7 turning 8 yr old nephew and like all the other reviews said, the other kids were wanting to use his bat cause he was popping the balls further and consistantly. I took him out to the field here in SA. After some one handed bat drills with balls/wiffle balls he was hitting consistently in the exam same spot on the field. His talent combined with this bat are amazing.
My 7-year old has used this bat since mid-feb and over the season has improved his swing and bat speed. Weight is not an issue for him but I did purchase the 25" / 15oz bat (smallest bat on the team) but just recently he is beginnging to take advantage of the bat. Large sweet spot allows him to consistently hit hard line drives / or highly arching pops which at U8 rec baseball is hard to catch. We are playing the championship game today 05/21 so we will see how the bat close out the season
My boy isn't a consistant hitter until recently so it took some time to break in, but once he got his swing down and connected bat proved its worth. We did see some dents and scoffs so the life of the bat should be for one season but we did used it as a practice bat and game bat.
You can spend more but you will not get a better performing bat. Larger sweet spot than composite bats. Our 8U tourney team has every bat on the market but this one is used most.
Might need batting gloves in cold temps. Vibration is a little more than composites when hit outside the sweet spot.
Bat had good pop for the 1 bucket of balls we used.
Received the bat and took my 9 year old out for some BP. After the first bucket of balls we found 2 dents in the bat, and one was about 2 inches in diameter. He is by no means a power hitter and we were very disappointed as we have always used Easton products.
