Bat Review: Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat

Baseball bat technology is constantly changing for the better and Easton continues to stay ahead of the pack. Their commitment to continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and setting the standard when it comes to high-performance equipment is impressive.

As Easton says, "Innovation is the foundation of our success." JustBats believes that's a solid foundation and here is why. Easton is already the number one bat in college baseball, and now they have added a new design to their BBCOR baseball bats: the Z-CORE Load & Load

Advanced innovations that Easton has created in the past to help amplify your power at home plate include the TORQ technology and their patented Connexion piece.  

As if that wasn't enough, Easton has taken it to a whole other level and constructed something that has never been done before. Their latest and greatest creation in the Lock & Load adjustable swing weight technology.


For the hitter that seeks perfection during every at-bat, the Lock & Load allows you to optimize your swing and maximize your potential. Here's how:

  • It allows you to adjust to an Easton speed, balanced, or XL swing weight index without changing bats. 
  • It provides you with the ability to find the perfect feel against any pitcher.
  • It customizes and personalizes the bat to each player's swing.

As you can see, the Z-CORE Lock & Load is the perfect tool for any player's bat bag. This design is truly innovative and not imitated. Each baseball bat also comes with a fancy Lock & Load case. The contents of this case include:

  • Balanced weight
  • XL weight
  • Easy to use Lock & Load wrench
  • Screws
  • Instruction booklet

On top of this revolutionary technology, the Z-CORE Lock & Load delivers one of the longest aluminum barrels in the game. Within that barrel, Easton's trademarked Z-CORE internal core technology combines with the HMX (Hyperlite Matrix) alloy to deliver the biggest sweet spot and the largest hitting surface of any aluminum 2 5/8" BBCOR Barrel in the game.

Don't pass up the opportunity to dial up your power and be locked and loaded with Easton's latest creation. Easton knows that players at all levels demand the very best equipment and it is their goal in life to deliver a bat that is the very best in function and performance. Never forget that even the smallest advantage can be the difference between victory and defeat.
