Pros:  My 9 year old son loves this bat. It has good pop and is nicely balanced. Last night he had a double up the middle and a triple off the fence to the opposite field. Make sure your hitter is close enough to the plate, the sweet spot seems to be closer to the handle than the end. I would guess that his teammates will be lining up soon to use it!

Cons:  I cannot comment on the durability, as he has only had if for a few weeks. It does vibrate some, but no more than any other model.

Pros:  My 11u son has hit 3 out this year with this bat and lots of hard hit balls. He swings with confidence knowing that if he makes good contact, every ball he hits will be moving fast. The swing weight on the bat is really light and the lizard skin grip is nice.

Cons:  If the ball is hit towards the end of the bat he gets vibration and not as much pop. You hear a mushy thud sound and know that ball won't be going that far. Pretty typical with a lot of bats I guess.

Pros:  Lightweight feel and the ball jumps off of the huge sweet spot. Great price and seems just as good or better then the other bats in the dugout. I was hesitate to buy at first but it's definitely a good choice to pick one up. Mind you its a composite so you need a strong kid to reap the benefits. Wish Combat was not going out of business!

Cons:  listed durability with 1 star since we have for only 3 weeks, wish they had 31/21 in stock

Was this review helpful ? 3 2

Pros:  Trying to find something to replace the 2 3/4" XL3 a few years ago, and Buying and trying many different brands, this is the closest match possible. The 2015 S3, 2016 S3 is the same make as the 2017 S3 but the color scheme is much better.....tired of the green. Over the past 3 years of the S3, the bat has tons of pop out of the wrapper, no break in period. This is critical because the kids grow out of a bat season by season and I have found that the $400-$500 MAKO or any composite bat still has no pop by the time the kid is swinging something that is to short. I work a lot with my son on hitting everyday and he takes at least 150 swings a day and the S3 holds up for one season. For most kids this bat would last a lifetime. If you are looking for a mid priced bat that has lots a pop out of the wrapper, and will feel great in your child's hand, this is the bat. Regardless of the child's talent, this bat will build their confidence and last for at least one season....or maybe a lifetime?

Cons:  Depending on how much time you spend doing BP will determine the lifespan of the bat.

Pros:  Looks great but that's about all.

Cons:  Bat dented on us at our 1st practice of the season. Pitching machine set to around 60 mph. None of the other bats are denting. This bat is cheap and poorly made. This bat folded bad.

Pros:  It's pretty and my son loves the feel.

Cons:  It's dead after 1/3 of a season. I will say that my 12 year old son swings it a ton if you include hitting lessons and regular practice but it's covered in dents and pretty much flat on one side. Maybe he should be swinging a heavier bat, one is on the way. He had last years model for last season and it held up way better than this one. We have been loyal Easton users for quite awhile so I'm disappointed. Luckily Easton has a good warranty since we will need it replaced two more times to get through the season.

Pros:  The bat has great pop. My son loves it. First time using it in a tournament he was 5/7.

Cons:  Problem, it dented the first tournament he played in. Called Easton and they will send out a replacement. I also saw the same bat at Play it Again sports and it was dented. Maybe because its the 2 3/4 barrel???

Pros:  Ball Fly's off this bat! Great Sweet Spot Great Balance. My Son is playing 8U 40MPH Machine pitch and the ball is coming off hot on this bat! Smallest size it comes in is a 28inch my son is a taller 8U and great for him to grow into but not too big to effect his swing. Nice size barrel. He's been swing this bat all season.

Cons:  Bought a lizard skin as this bat wrap is pretty weak that it comes with.. Does get some bee stings every now and then but no where near what his Louisville Slugger 518 was giving him.

Do I need to have my boy do anything special to make sure this bat gets broke in properly?

The 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 is pretty hot out of the wrapper, and you could use it right away. However, we feel the bat would benefit from about 100 swings off a tee initially. It is best to gradually work your swing speed up from about 50% and rotate the barrel about a quarter turn every few swings.

The difference between the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 and the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL110 is the barrel diameter. The 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL110 has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter while the 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 features a 2 3/4" barrel diameter.

What is the difference between this bat and the Vigor? Which one would you recommend for a 11 thru 9 year old player?

The Portent G4 and the Vigor are very similar bats. The only difference seems to be that the Vigor feels like a slightly lighter swinging bat than the G4. Both would be very good options.

My son just turned 7. He is 45 inches tall & weighs 43 lbs. He will be hitting off of a machine at 42 mph but cannot use a big barrel at the park he's playing for. I've heard composite bats are the way to go but what do you suggest for him? What size & type of bat?

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a youth barrel bat in a 27 or 28 inch model. Composite bats are typically going to feature a lighter swing weight feel and slightly larger sweet spot but for younger players they are not usually going to experience the benefits of these bats due to them not being able to swing them fast enough. We would recommend looking into a balanced bat that is a two-piece design to help reduce vibration from off-centered hits.

Why no reviews? Is there something we should know about this bat?

All reviews are generated by consumers directly. If there are no reviews pertaining to an item then unfortunately no consumers have rated or reviewed the product. Doesn't mean the bat is not a quality product as most will be sure to review a product if it does not perform well or hold up from a durability standpoint.

Will this bat be good for a 7 yr old in a 26/16oz? What's the difference in a junior big barrel or a youth big barrel bat, as long as the weight and length are the same?

This bat is well suited to a youth player. Junior Big Barrel bats are intended for coach pitch or machine pitch, and will not hold up long against kid pitch/higher velocities. Youth Big Barrel bats are designed to handle throw ball at higher velocities better than Junior Big Barrel bats.

How does this bat compare with Vigor -10 2017? I need a big barrel for my 9 year old power hitter.

The 2016 COMBAT Portent G4 Senior League Baseball Bat w/ Lizard Skin Grip: PG4SL210 and the 2017 COMBAT Vigor are both one-piece composite bats with balanced swing weights. The slight difference between the two is the barrel length with the COMBAT Vigor having a slightly longer barrel length compared to the Portent G4. This difference in barrel length will help give the Vigor a slightly more balanced swing weight feel.

My 13 year old began using the bat in March and it's badly dented. No unusual use. I've seen similar experiences in the justbats.com reviews. Is Easton or justbats going to address this?

The 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310B features a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. This bat is best suited for a player between the ages of 9-11. If this bat has become dented then Easton would handle the warranty claim for you.

My son is 10. What bat would you recommend, the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball or the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST HYPERLITE?

Both bats should perform very similarly. The major differences are the that S3 (SL17S310B) is a -10 drop, while the Hyperlite is a -12 drop.

Any changes from the previous years?

The 2016 and the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310B feature a new grip tape (HYPERSKIN Grip - Thickness: 1.2 mm) compared to the 2015 model of the bat. As for comparing the 2016 and 2017 models of the bat, the only thing that has changed is the colorway of the bat; it is still using the same HMX Alloy (same material since the 2015 models).

Customer Testimonial

I needed a 31' wood bat for my son. Most sporting good stores don't carry that size. You had the bat I wanted at a great price; not to mention it was delivered to my house within 3 business days just in time for the start of the tournament. Thank you. Great job!
