Pros: Quality is ok.
Cons: Nothing special about this bat. Save your money and buy a good $100 bat
Pros: Average bat.
Cons: Average bat with a big price.
Pros: Nice appearance
Cons: Bat does not provide explosive hits. My son hits for power and this bat was not effective for a power hitter. We went back to using the S3 series.
Pros: Great pop, great feel, very little vibration, too early to grade the durability.
Cons: Bad grip as good as this bat is, I wished they would went to a cheap grip compare to the last two power brigade bats I've bought.
Pros: Large sweet spot! Son loves it!
Cons: Takes around 150-175 swings to fully-breakin
Pros: Very balanced for increased bat speed but still looking for the huge sweet spot everyone raves about. Thru 3 tourneys and still not performing like i had expected.
Cons: Doesn't have the pop I expected....switched from an XL1 to the Mako and am not impressed at all actually very disappointed. Easton went cheap with the grip, it cracks easily. Seems like the 2 1/4 barrel makos have way more pop. The huge price tag doesn't hold up when the bat doesn't play like its supposed to.
Pros: nice feel,balance
Cons: does not have near the pop of the older orange makos. I spent 300.00 plus dollars my son no longer uses it. He uses his old 2015 mako and the team demarini c7. My son's friend is returning his 2016 mako same reason "no pop"
Pros: Great pop!
Pros: Huge barrel and sweet spot. Plenty of pop! This is the second MAKO my son has owned. He mentions every time he uses it how much more he likes it better than his last one. (The first one was just fine.)
Cons: None. I hope it's as durable as his last one.
Pros: Feels solid, no vibration.
Cons: The grip seems to feel a little loose under a tight grip. Just seems like it is moving.
Pros: Great pop Very durable
Pros: large sweet spot
Cons: wish it was already warm outside
Pros: all around good bat
Pros: great pop. I love the new grip tape. The bat is pretty durable.
Cons: When I was hitting I felt lots of viberation. When I droped the bat from on foot on bleachers the paint chipped very easly .
Pros: Lots of pop. My son is getting solid hits with this bat.
Pros: hit bombs every time
Pros: Amazing bat for all kids. Easton is such a great company to make these awesome bat for all kids to use. But I think there should be a better grip. Maybe have Lizard Skin on the bat.
Pros: my 7 year old's confidence is through the roof. No vibration so he's not afraid to attack and swing hard.
Pros: I purchased this Bat for my son that plays travel ball and he loves the bat and the 27" with -10 drop was perfect for him. It has a different sound when compared to his older bat and the price was far better than other sites. Thanks Just Bats for a great product and very fast shipping.
Pros: First off great bat. As a player starting their 12u season, this was a great buy. The 2 3/4 barrel adds for easy contact. The TCT Thermo composite in this bat is insane. As a power hitter, this thing can produce major distance. Whether you're a power-hitter, or someone who needs a little confidence at the plate, I would definitely check this bat out.
Cons: However, this bat does come with some downs. The bat is a little more heavy than described. It feels more like a -8.5 or -9. Anyways it's a good buy.
Pros: Large barrel, lots of pop, light weight, skinny handle. 50% of the kids started using this bat on my Select 12U team. They all love it! Good performer so far.
Pros: lots of pop. big sweet spot
Pros: the grip
Cons: pretty much everything else
Pros: When I unrated this bat I sad wow! This bat looks great and peforms great. I love this bat and it is just a great bat all around.
Cons: This bats grip is terrible I got new grip for it 4 days after I bought it.
Pros: Has Lots of pop!!! feels good to
Pros: a couple of kids on our team have this bat it hitting around 275 to 300 ft for 12 and 13 my son bang a few off the fence at 330 he close we bought 2 of these and had good luck with them no issue at all so far thanks
Cons: none yet
Pros: large sweet spot, price ($100), pop, grip
Cons: durabilty (ive broken 3)
Pros: best bat ever
Pros: Huge sweet spot. if tou cant hit with this bat.......you cant hit.
Cons: No bad reports to speak of with this bat.
Pros: Has a great pop for my sons 8U travel team
Cons: we went from a 29 inch -13 to this 30 inch -10 and I will say the weight difference took some getting used to.
Pros: This bat is awesome!! It brought my batting average to a 389
Cons: Nothing bad
Pros: A lot of pop. used this bat for 2 years and am buying a new one. Good price for a great bat.
Cons: composite bat. might shatter.
Pros: it feels good it is more of getting a linedrive i love this bat rawlings let me demo it and i love it
Cons: i cant really tell the durability
Pros: I bought the 28/18 for my 7 year old who was swinging a 27/17 Slugger 517. The bat is very balanced with the unique composite end cap and the pop is amazing. The difference in pop from the 517 to this bat is unbelievable. This bat really puts the ball out there when we did the side-by-side comparison and it didn't have anything to do with the additional inch in size. My son loves how loud it is as well. Great bat to bridge kids from the Jr. big barrel to a higher level Sr. league bat. Best aluminum bat I've bought in the last 5 years and with 2 boys, I've bought a lot.
Cons: Sting from this bat on mishit balls is more pronounced than on previous easton and Louisville bats we have owned but not enough to concern. My son didn't like the grip that came on it so we swapped it out with a lizard skin an he is happy now. The grip was good, but is very thick and made it harder for the 7u player with smaller hands to grip. That switch likely contributed to additional sting, but had to do it.
Pros: I got the bbcor version for my younger brother and he had great review and experience, so decided to get my son one as well 28/18 (he is a 7u/8u player). we are a marucci family, loved the cat 6&7 but this bat really put the cat 7 to rest. great balance and pop. rawlings did its thing with this one
Cons: the grip
Pros: My son is a 11u travel player, 5'3" 100 pounds, tall w long arms. He felt more comfortable with the 2 5/8 with the thinker handle for his big hands. Couple of our power hitters went 2 3/4 with the thinner handle. College players at a pro shop/training facility recommended this last year as having the best combination of balance, speed and pop. It's true, the kids love these bats and the performance is really good.
Cons: 1-piece, little sting with mis-hits, not sure on durability let, very stiff but the performance is outweighing the feel for our boys.
Pros: Only had this bat for about two months so it's hard to tell about durability but we just switched from the 2015 "5150" and it was still in great shape, just outgrew it. Really good pop and is really loud when it hits the ball which I feel can startle the defense just a little bit as a bonus. Lol. I use it some to hit grounders and fly balls in practice and it seems well balanced. Already had a couple of parents order one for their players.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: No one in our area has one but my 10 year old grandson. I guarantee I will see more now. He said it immediately felt right in terms of look, grip and swing feel. Used it to practice for 1 week before tournament play. 1st games had great results. Exit velocity seems intense. Comparative cost with other bats of Velo caliber is a plus. I spoke to a vendor who has great knowledge of the bat before the purchase and he said, "Get the Velo for your grandson and he will thank you for it." He already has.
Cons: None yet. Only 2 weeks in. I can't comment on durability although I have not heard that there is a problem.
Pros: very light swing weight. son had been using combat but i wanted to go to alloy. 10u contact hitter. he sisnt all of a sudden start hitting dingers but he started hitting harder hits. went from batting 6&7 to 2nd. for a smaller kid i would definately recommend this. lightest swing weight out there and i tested 12 different bats. love the soundnof a solid hit.
Cons: the barrel doesnt look as long and isnt compared to others. main reason is handle is thicker to get swing weight down. grip isnt as good as others preference wise. put a thick lizard skin on. son hasnt complained about the sting much at all
Pros: my 8 year old just starting using. hits farther than when he had a louiville. great so far, worth the money.
Cons: none yet
Pros: My son likes the bat more than any other bat. Great pop! The weight is spot on at 20.4oz.
Cons: Nothing yet
Pros: good pop and feel
Cons: super loud
Pros: Its a Rawlings. My son likes them over any other. Velo not the 5150.
Cons: Weak pop - wears out quickly - not durable.
Got a question about the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
My son is 9 and is 4â€™7" tall and weighs 80 lbs. Which bat do you recommend?
We would probably recommend a 29" length for his height and weight. This Easton Mako Senior League (SL16MK10B) would be a good option if you mostly play USSSA travel tournament baseball. It would not be legal if you play in a league that requires the new USA Baseball bat certification though.
Rawlings Velo Hybrid 2017 or Easton Mako? Which would be 30â€ w/ 2 3/4 barrel?
Both the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B and the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 will feature a 2 3/4 barrel diameter. We have both of these bats available in a 30" 20oz option.
Is this a "USA baseball" approved bat? If not, which bats do you have that do have the USA Baseball stamp of approval?
The Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is approved for USSSA play, but does not meet the USA baseball qualifications. The most similarly available bat to this Easton MAKO available will be the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10. The Ghost X is a two-piece fully composite with a balanced swing, available in a drop 10. With that being said, the new qualifications will ensure that the performance of these new USA bats will be substantially lower than all of the bats in the past.
This is the 2 piece composite Easton bat like the -12 Easton 2 piece but in a senior league bat correct? My son has the 2 1/4 version but has white on the handle and this one is black. The only black one I've seen is the alloy barrel; I do not want the alloy barrel.
The Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is a two-piece composite model featuring a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. Easton did make a MAKO featuring a two-piece composite design in a -12 model but these bats featured a 2 1/4" barrel diameter. The senior league version of the MAKO in the -12 with the 2 3/4" barrel diameter was the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST HYPERLITE -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK12B; this bat was a one-piece all composite.
Being that this is a close out bat do we still get the one year warranty through Easton?
Yes, the one year warranty still applies to these models even though they are a closeout.
Is the 30" a 2 5/8" or 2 3/4"? I am trying to find a 30" 2 5/8" but want to confirm.
The Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is a 2 3/4" barrel version. We unfortunately, do not have the 2 5/8" barrel version of this bat available anymore.
My grandson is 9yrs old 4ft 7in and 75-80lb. He's playing in his first year of travel ball.
Based off the specifications you have provided, I would recommend the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B in a 29 inch bat length.
Is that bat good for 11U?
If 2 3/4" barrel bats are legal for your league or tournaments, the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B would be a great option for that age.
Is it full composite?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is a fully composite bat.
I have an 11 year old and looking for a big barrel. What size would you recommend for this bat?
For most 11 year old players, we are suggesting bats in the 30" length. I might recommend this 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) in the 30"/20 oz size. As well, this bat has the USSSA certification and largest 2 3/4" barrel diameter size to it.
Will you be able to use this bat in 2018 for travel ball?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B will still be legal for USSSA travel ball.
My son is about to turn 12. What size bat should I get him?
For most 12 year old players we are suggesting a bat with a 30" length to it. This 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) is unfortunately not being offered in the 30"/20 oz size. As well, this bat features the -10 length-to-weight ratio and 2 3/4" barrel diameter. Bats this lite with the large 2 3/4" barrel typically do not hold up well in regard to durability. I would recommend looking to a bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and -8 length-to-weight ratio for a 12 year old player. Probably a 30"/22 oz size is the one to try and find.
My son is 5'3" and weighs 135 lbs. What bat size would you recommend?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B in a 31 inch model.
How does this bat compare to the Louisville Omaha 517 bat?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B and the LS Omaha 517 bat are both very good bats but they are completely different. The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is a two-piece fully composite bat with a balanced swing weight while the LS Omaha 517 is a one-piece fully balanced alloy bat. The MAKO will run a little heavier but is better equipped at reducing vibration from off-centered hits.
My son is just turning 8 yrs old. He is 46" and 42 lbs. What size of bat would you recommend?
This 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) would actually be an excellent option of bat to get a player as long as the parameters of the bat meet the league requirements and you are able to get the right size for the player. I might recommend looking to the 27"/17 oz size of this bat if the weight is able to be handled by your player.
My son is 5'6" tall and weighs 105 pounds. What bat size do you recommend?
We would recommend a 31" length of bat for his size.
Does Easton make 28" SL16MK10B?
Yes, Easton did produce the 2016 MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) in a 28". Unfortunately, we are currently (5/16/2017) are out of stock on the 28".
Is this bat legal for 13-15 year old? Or the leagues known as Babe Ruth or Junior League?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is not legal for use in Babe Ruth or Junior League as this bat has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter (only 2 5/8" are allowed) and the bat does not feature BBCOR certification (if using a composite barrel bat like an Easton MAKO it must be a BBCOR bat - these bats have a -3 length to weight ratio).
Is this bat eligible in USSSA tournaments?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B features the 1.15 BPF USSSA certification stamp and it should be legal for play in USSSA tournaments. It is always best to ask a coach or tournament officials beforehand though.
My son is about 5 feet and 100 pounds. What length bat do you recommend?
Based on your sons height and weight we would recommend a 31"/21 ounce 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B).
What is the difference between a SL16MK10B and SL16MK10?

My son is 5'2" and weighs about 95 and is 12. What size bat? What is the difference between 2016 Easton MAKO and the Easton MAKO senior league baseball bat white and orange color?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting a 31 inch model in a 2 5/8" barrel and 21 ounces. The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B features a 2 3/4" barrel and is better suited for players from the ages of 7-11. As for the difference in the two models, the composite material and connection technology stayed the same; the only things that changed were the cosmetics and grip tape.
Will this bat be legal for Babe Ruth league? Is it BBCOR certified? I just don't want to buy an illegal bat.
Unfortunately, the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is not approved for play in Babe Ruth. It is not BBCOR certified either. The combination of the 2 3/4" barrel and not being BBCOR certified make it illegal for play in Babe Ruth.
My son is 12 years old 4'8" and 94 lbs. I'm looking for a bat that he can use this and next year in the park league.
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B is probably going to be to small of a bat for your player. If your player is allowed to swing a big barrel bat, I would suggest a 2 5/8" barrel for a player of his age. I would look at a 30" bat based on his size, and if he can, moving to a -8, but a -10 would also work if you wanted to stay on the lighter side. Here are a couple bats for you to take a look at: 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 or the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK8.

My son is 5 ft and weighs about 90 lbs. He will be 12. What size bat should he use? What weight? Also, what is the difference between the senior and junior MAKO bats?
We would recommend using a 30" 20 ounce 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B). The difference between Senior League Bats and Junior Big Barrels are that Senior League bats are designed for kid pitch and Junior Big Barrel bats are designed for coach pitch.

The 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17MK10B) has a barrel that is approximately 1.5" longer than the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B).
My son is 4'5" and 62 lbs. He currently has a 29"/19 oz. Should we stick with the same size at 12U?
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) in the 29" size. However, if you want something that he can grow into with time, I would recommend looking to the 30" model of the bat as long as he can handle the 20 oz weight.

How does this bat compare to the Combat MAXUM?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) and the 2016 COMBAT MAXUM -10 Senior League Baseball Bat are both full composite bats. The Easton MAKO is a two-piece, balanced designed composite and will feature better vibration technology to help reduce stinging sensation from off-centered hits. Being that it is a two-piece design, it will offer more flex which is typically preferred by contact hitters. The COMBAT MAXUM is a one-piece design that will allow for a stiffer feeling (preferred by power hitters) but won't have the same anti-vibration technology. Both bats would be great options that offer massive sweet spots.
What is the difference between this bat and the S1?
There are quite a few differences between the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10B and the 2015 Easton S1 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15S110. The S1 is going to have an IMX advanced composite barrel which is said to give ultra-responsive hitting surface that lowers swing weight while the MAKO features the TCT Thermo Composite Technology which is said to create a massive sweet pot and unmatched bat speed. Additionally, the 2016 MAKO comes with HYPERSKIN Grip while the 2015 S1 does not.
My son is 11, 5'3", 150 lbs. What bat size would you recommend for the MAKO?
Based on your son's height/weight, I would suggest getting the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) in a 31" 21 oz.
What are the main differences between the Easton MAKO and DeMarini's new bat? Is one more end-loaded?
It would depend on which DeMarini model you are referring to as they have several different models of bats in the 2016 line. The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) compares most closely with the 2016 DeMarini CF8 Senior League Baseball Bat (DXCFZ). They are very similar by design. The CF8 may have a bit better balance while the MAKO has a bigger sweet spot due to the extended barrel length.
My son is 13 years old. He weighs between 85-95 pounds and he is 4 foot 11. What length and weight bat do you recommend?
Based on height and weight, we would recommend a 30 inch bat. At his age we would typically not recommend a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter like what is featured on the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B). We would recommend something with a 2 5/8 inch diameter and possibly a -10 or -8 depending on how strong the player is.
How long does it take to break in the new bat?
We recommend around a 150 swings off the tee or soft toss. Make sure your rotate the barrel of the bat a quarter of an inch every 15-20 swings.
Why does the MAKO come in 2 5/8 & 2 3/4? Does one have more pop than the other? My son has always used the S3 with good results. Would the MAKO provide more pop once broken-in?
"Pop" is more of a term that is associated with the skill of the player rather than a measurable feature of the bat. Due to performance restrictions imposed for safety reasons, most bats within the same certification category will perform to the same level at their peak. The difference, and what you end up paying for, is the feel of the bat (balanced vs. end-loaded, one-piece vs two-piece, barrel size, etc.) and the durability of the bat (how long the bat will perform at that peak level). Which one is best would depend on what you are looking for in those aspects compared to the price range you are looking to stay in. That being said, the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) has a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter because some leagues allow that size while others only allow up to a 2 5/8 inch barrel like the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10). They should perform similarly as they are both USSSA regulated but you get more room for error with the 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter and may be able to barrel up the ball more easily.
Is there anything different from this one and the 2014 model. My player just turned 12. He is about 105 pounds. What size would you recommend?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) is very similar in construction to the previous models of the bat. The grip has been slightly changed and it has different graphics. The size we would recommend would be based on a combination of both height and weight rather than one or the other. If you can provide his height we would be better able to size him.
Does this bat have the rotating handle?
The 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MK10B) does not have the TORQ handle. The 2016 Easton MAKO TORQ Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16MKT10B) would be the model that does but it is not currently available for pre-sale.

The main difference between the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V10 (2 5/8" barrel) and the 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 (2 3/4") would be the barrel size. The 2017 Rawlings VELO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL7V34 will have slightly thinner barrel walls.
