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 most pop of any BBCOR barrel. Additionally, the Z-CORE LOCK & LOAD has a thin 31/32 inch tapered handle that comes wrapped with Easton's HYPERSKIN Grip for ultimate comfort and reduced vibration. Easton: Dial Up Your Power!

Something special about it 1bigkid parent

Pros: What this bat offers that's different is the slight end load you can add that makes it feel a lot different from the other end loaded bats. It feels like the zcore speed but with more weight and that adds to the pop. You wouldn't think there is that much of a difference between a drop 3 and drop 2.5 but when your generating the same bat speed the drop 2.5 will drive it farther. I got the bat because I have two boys one year apart and thought I can save on cost having them use the same bat. I haven't swapped out the balanced weight yet they both love it. It has that great thin easton handle along with that durable easton grip that my sons have grown up to love. Has a huge sweet spot.

Cons: I heard the weights and blank plug are not legal in College. You don't want to lose the pouch that comes with the tool and weights. I have no idea how those weights are going to hold up. My sons have only used it for about 20 games now and it seems good but who knows i haven't touched the weights since I got the bat. A bit of brick dust, clay and moisture in the threads and it might cement that screw in there. Despite the cons this is a 5 star overall bat.

Can this be used in high school baseball?
nick
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL is a bat designed for high school and college baseball as it is going to be BBCOR certified.
Cameron
Is it legal in USSSA baseball?
john tiger
BBCOR bats are allowed in USSSA starting at 14U and above.
Tori
Does this bat have the USABat logo on it. This is the requirement for Babe Ruth in 2018.
Troy Sperr
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL will not feature a USA bat certification. The USA bat certification bats will be released in September, those bats will be legal for 2018 Babe Ruth.
Max
Is this an approved bat for Little League and Cal Ripken with new rule changes starting 2018?
Steven Foard
Cal Ripken and Little League have not yet released their rules in regard to the use of BBCOR bats in divisions below high school. We will have to wait and get official set of 2018 rules before we make a statement. However, I do know that this 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZLL) would be legal for the high school divisions of those leagues.
Ben
Which bat is better the Mako beast or the Z-CORE Lock and Load? And which one is the most balanced?
Jonathan F
Both bats are going to be top of the line performing BBCOR baseball bats.The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL will have a feature a LOCK & LOAD Adjustable Swing Weight Technology Offers Speed, Balanced, & XL Settings which gives you the feature of changing your swing weight.
Max
I weigh between 130-140 pounds. I'm about 5'8-5'9 and am looking to buy an Easton bat for my league that is BBCOR certified. I am 14 years old, turning 15 in November. The bats I am considering to buy are the MAKO Beast 2017 BB17MK, this 2018 Z-Core Lock & Load BB17ZLL, the Z-Core Speed BB17SZ - with the black and blue colorway specifically - and also the Z Core Hybrid Model of 2017 with the black and neon yellow colorway specifically. Can someone please describe each of those 4 models (how they compare, how they are different, what kind of hitter is best designed for each bat, which is most durable) and what bat you would recommend for me to buy. I'm planning to buy one of these bats in a 31 inch but whoever answers this feels that I should get a inch higher or so, please put that in your response.
BennyDaJet
Based on your height and weight, it would be best to get a 32 inch model. As for which bat to get, the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL, the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MK, the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS, or the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH, this will ultimately depend on whether you prefer composite, alloy, one-piece or two-piece and balanced or end loaded. All four bats are great options to consider with the only one being slightly end loaded (Z-CORE Hybrid). The MAKO and Z-CORE Hybrid are both two-piece constructed bats and are better equipped to reduce vibration from off centered hits than the other Z-CORE models. Ultimately comes down to personal preference but based on your age, as well as height and weight, it would be best to consider either the MAKO, Z-CORE Speed or the Z-CORE Lock & Load since these bats are all balanced. If you are concerned about your hands stinging from a missed hit then you will want to get the MAKO.
Cameron
How will the bat stay -3 and BBCOR legal after you change the swing weight?
p
Since it is heavier than a -3 when you add weight and features the BBCOR certified stamp the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZLL) will still be BBCOR certified no matter what piece you add on it.
Carter
Does it have a warranty on it?
Trey Hicks
Yes the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat has a 12 month manufacturers warranty.
Cade
How is the bat different from the 2017 version of the same bat?
tim
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL is the first and only version of the Lock and Load at this time. There was not a 2017 version of the bat.
Jason
Which bat is more balanced the Ghost X or the Z core lock and load?
JonathanF
The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is going to be more balanced than the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL on the speed setting.
Carter
Can this bat with the weights be used in college?
batguy
After doing some research, it appears that for NCAA play, this 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZLL) can only be used if the removable weights are NOT in the bat when it is being used in a NCAA sanctioned game.
Ben
Difference between this bat and the Ghost X 2018?
lando baseball
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL is a one-piece alloy bat that you can adjust and make end loaded or balanced by adjusting the attachment in the end cap. While the Ghost X is a two-piece fully composite with a balanced swing weight. Performance wise the two bats are equally good.
Jason
Need this bat in a 34". Do you sell it?
scott
Unfortunately, we do not currently offer the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL in a 34". At this time there does not appear to be any plans to offer this option in a 34" length.
Jason
Is this bat legal for PONY ball at the Bronco (11-12) level? According to PONY's web page the -3 BBCOR bat is legal. Just want to make sure.
Gregg
This bat would be legal if your league allows BBCOR bats at that age. You may want to double check with your coach or league commissioner to be sure about the rules for your specific age range.
Kyle J.
Is this bat good for power hitters? I'm 6'2" and 220lbs and hit for power.
ben perry
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL features LOCK & LOAD Adjustable Swing Weight Technology that Offers Speed, Balanced, & XL Settings. This means you can adjust the bat to feature an end-loaded swing weight which is typically what I see power hitters swing.
Dan
If this is the 2018 lock and load why they didn't make it with the atec new alloy instead of the hyper matrix? How balance is this bat for a freshman 14 yr baseball player. Will it be durable?
Q
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL features HMX (Hyperlite Matrix) Alloy Construction which provides unbeatable durability. The LOCK & LOAD Adjustable Swing Weight Technology Offers Speed, Balanced, & XL Settings. You can adjust this bat to feature a more balanced swing weight for your player.
Dan
Is this bat legal in Babe Ruth 2018?
Snagadreem
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL will be allowed for Babe Ruth leagues, ages 13 and above. Any league with player's younger than that will only be allowed to use a USA certified bat.
Tyler
With the heaviest weight installed - will this be similar in end-loaded-feel to the Z Core XL?
OldSchool
Yes, with the adjustable swing weight settings of the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL you will be able to scale the end loaded feature akin to that of another Easton end loaded bat.
Tyler
Is this bat a 2 piece composite bat or is it one piece aluminum bat? And if it is 1 piece aluminum bat will I get a lot of vibration?
Tie
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL is a one-piece alloy bat and thus a player will feel vibration from off-centered hits due to one-piece bats no flexing on contact. How much vibration will be felt is tough to say though.
Cameron
How to I find/order a new set of end barrel weights that originally came with my Easton Z-Core bat?
RML
If you are looking for more barrel weights for this 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL, I would recommend reaching out to Easton directly to see if they would be able to provide those.
Tyler
I heard white bats may be illegal next year. Do you have details? Will this bat be included in the new rule?
Rob Maloney
There is a new rule that will be in place in the 2020 season for collegiate play that outlaws bats with the primary colorway white. As long as your player is not playing in college the Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL will be legal for play.
Max
Which one would you rather buy: the Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL or the Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5?
Kyle Force
Whether or not to get the Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL or the Marucci F5 BBCOR would come down to personal preference. Since I have not used either bat it would be impossible for me to give my opinion. Both bats are one-piece alloy models so there would not be much difference between the two, assuming one could not use the load and load feature on the Easton (cannot use this in college).
