2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP16MKT10
This bat is a tank
This is an awesome bat
Pros: Very good contact bat
Cons: Getting used to the bat handle
Cons: had many people tell me it didnt have the same pop as my demarini, i agree. it hurt my hands even in the sweet spot... ive always had a bad experience with easton bats. i recommend demarini to anyone so much better.
Pros: torque handle easy to swing nice general purpose bat
Cons: not as much pop as I would like
Pros: This bat is a tank... this is our 4th Mako.. nothing lasts longer, plus the ball comes off the bad strong making every grounder a challenge for defenses. Everyone questions the rotating handle but it really has zero effect and is not even noticed on most swing paths. The exception is the low inside pitch... the Mako allows the hitter to get to it without locking up. A huge advantage. Nothing beats the durability of a MAKO. My girls are 13 and 16 have -10, 32",33",34"
Cons: The only con about this bat is the bad rap it gets... I am glad Easton are sticking with it.
Pros: This is an awesome bat. Great sweet spot.
Cons: The grip being white...
Pros: good price
Cons: wish were able to expand the sizing a bit more
Pros: worked great for half a season
Cons: one of the worst bats I have ever purchased. It was dead before 12 games. Another girl on the team had the same problem with her bat.
Pros: my daughter absolutly loves this bat this is her second mako torq it has great pop and really sends the ball..
Cons: i havent found any thing negative about this bat
Pros: Pricing can't be beat!
Cons: Haven't had enough time yet to rate the bats very well.

I am 14 on a highly competitive select team. I am 95 lbs and 5'2. I currently swing a 31/21 and am really happy with that. However, I was wondering if I would hit better with a different size bat. Also, what exactly does the handle do?
Based on your size, I would probably go with a 32" bat. It is difficult for us to determine the weight you should swing without seeing you actually swing a bat, that would be a better question to ask a coach. The bottom portion of the handle where the player's bottom hand goes on the 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP16MKT10 rotates 360 degrees. This allows the hands to rotate freely as they naturally would throughout the swing, and it allows the player to get the barrel of the bat to the zone quicker, and leave the barrel in the zone longer.

My daughter is 14 and 100 lbs and a singles hitter. What would be the right size bat?

My daughter is a 13 year old contact hitter/switch-hitter who primarily hits lefty. She slaps and bunts and occasionally knocks the ball through the IF or a short distance into the OF. She swings a 32", 19 oz -13 Mizuno Black Widow fastpitch bat. Again, she makes good contact but has little pop when it counts. She's 4'2" and 68 lbs. Is the MAKO too much of a bat for her?
I think that she will be able to swing the Easton Mako just fine if she is able to handle the extra 3 ounces as this bat is going to be a -10. If she can handle that I think that the 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP16MKT10) would be a great option for her.
Umpires at my daughter's high school games saying this bat is illegal, but on the ASA website it appears to be legal. What should I do?
I would recommend speaking to a league official and letting them know of the situation with this 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP16MKT10). There will not be a feature on this bat that will make it illegal for use in fastpitch leagues and I think the league would be willing to address that situation with umpires in the league so that the umpires are aware that the bat should be legal for use.
What bat length and ounce is appropriate for high school?
Here at JustBats, we base our recommendations for the length of the 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP16MKT10 on a player's height and weight. As far as the ounce, that is hard for us to recommend as that will vary depending upon a player's personal preference, hitting style, and strength.
Is this bat strong enough to use in a men's fastpitch league?
I would imagine that this 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP16MKT10) should be able to hold up to the demands of a men's fastpitch league. However, if it did break down in the first 12 months from the purchase date, you would be covered by the 12 month manufacturer's warranty period.
What is the difference between this bat and the 2016 Easton MAKO CXN ZERO?
Besides the cosmetics, the 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP16MKT10 features the TORQ 360 Degree Rotating Handle Technology which helps players stay inside and square up more pitches while the 2016 Easton MAKO CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP16MK10 will not.
I'm sorry but I'm still confused about the rotating handle; how it works and it's purpose.
The 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP16MKT10 will feature a rotating handle (just the bottom portion that connects to the knob of the bat). The rotating handle will slightly rotate during the course of the swing; from hand path to softball and then during the follow through/finish of the swing. The main premise behind the concept of the rotating handle is to help facilitate proper swing mechanics when it comes to the hands during the course of the swing/follow through.
