Bat Spotlight: 2016 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat

Bat Spotlight: 2016 Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat

The MAKO series has been Easton’s bread and butter and the Easton MAKO Youth Baseball Bat (YB16MK11) was one of the most highly reviewed youth models for the 2015-16 season. Here is what those players, parents, and coaches had to say about it:

Mako_1.jpg"Love the new Hyperskin grip! Great pop and feel all around! The TCT thermo composite helps with no sting. Just an amazing bat all over the market!!!!"

mako_2.jpg"Explosive POP, large sweet spot, awesome grip."

mako_3.jpg“Good balance, no vibration.”

Some customer reviews did note some minor flaws with the Easton Mako. One customer stated that the Easton MAKO “weighs approx 1.5-2 oz more than advertised.” Unfortunately, this is going to be true for a majority of baseball and softball bats. Manufacturers will weigh their bats before items, such as the end cap, graphics, and grip, are applied. These three features typically make up that 1.5-2 ounces that go above and beyond the listed weight.

Another customer said, “The elite bat makers are crazy with their pricing.” With quality, usually comes price increases. However, with the recent release of the Easton MAKO Beast, the price for the MAKO is now at a discounted price!

The Easton MAKO has a number of advantages and features. Among them:

  • -11 Length to Weight Ratio
  • 2 ¼” Barrel Diameter
  • Approved for play in Little League, Babe Ruth, Dixie, Pony, AABC, & USSSA
  • ConneXion Technology
  • Hyperskin Grip with 1.2mm thickness
  • TCT Thermo Composite Technology
  • Twelve Month Manufacturer’s Warranty
  • Two-piece fully composite design

The TCT thermo composite material (combined with the ConneXion technology) helps tremendously with the reduction of sting in the hands. Not only does this innovative technology do that, but it helps reduce the break-in period while providing a massive sweet spot with a light swing weight. Basically, there are a lot of reasons why this model was well liked.
