Pros:  Received this bat on 9/4/15 My son has only hit soft toss into a net with it this weekend and the bat seems to have great pop......but

Cons:  Only hit soft toss no live pitching and the bat already has a vibration sound. The end cap is loose. With only 75 swings maybe...

Pros:  Has a light weight feel to it. Has some decent pop to it.

Cons:  My team has had these bats for about two weeks and 3 have broke at the connecting piece. The previous Makos had a better feel then this model.

Pros:  The pop off this bat really is the best we have ever seen. We purchased the Demarini Voodoo Raw first and was very unhappy, it was just dead feeling. Got this bat and could not be more pleased. Very first at bat in a game my son went yard and didnt even hit the ball well. The bat got that long ball!

Cons:  NONE!

Pros:  Bat has amazing pop! It does take some hits in the cages before it breaks in. However, once it breaks in, its a HOT bat. Look like the prices went down so its a better buy.

Cons:  None yet.

Pros:  This is a very light bat, and it feels really good when you swing it.

Cons:  I got my 14 year old son this bat expecting it to be a lightweight, bat with a lot of pop. Unfortunately, this bat has little pop, and my 5 foot 10 8th grader cannot hit the ball 280 feet. On the other hand, with the Voodoo overlord ft, he can hit the ball 330 feet, and the voodoo overlord has a much better sound. Get the voodoo overlord over the mako, it is a much better choice. The mako is not worth it.

Pros:  Bought a 32 for my 14 year old in June 2016. One week later, my 17 year old son decided to use it and hit a 380 foot HR his second at bat. This was without a breakin. So, I was convinced and bought another mako bat for 17 year old son. My 14 year old loves the pop and feel and he also hits well with it.

Cons:  none so far since we have seen only 3 weeks using these bats.

Cons:  The bat died. I took my exit velocity in June and topped 77 with this bat but when I tested it yesterday (7/16), I only topped 66. The sound off the bat was quiet and it just wasn't the same it once was.

Pros:  By far the best Bbcor bat I have ever used. The pop to this bat is amazing ball flys off the bat. For the price it's being sold for it is definitely worth it. Very balanced bat feels lighter then a -3. Over all it's an outstanding bat.

Cons:  Nothing so far great bag.

Pros:  Nice balance and easy to swing Good pop Easton customer service and warranty is excellent

Cons:  Doesn't hold up. I've returned two of these bats over the last year because they both cracked in the center where the two piece composite handle meets up with the barrel. When this happens the barrel goes dead and you lose your pop. I have a teammate that has had the same experience with both the 2015 and 2016 Mako BBCOR. Luckily Easton has an excellent and easy warranty process and sends a replacement bat upon return and proof of purchase of your broken bat, so save your receipt and the box to ship it back if it breaks!

Pros:  Like the 31/32" composite handle and the sound of the metal barrel. Fast bat; although advertised as a balanced bat there is a slight end load making it a good choice to make the transition to BBCOR. Hitting farther then ever before. Extended barrel compares to the more expensive composites thanks to the internal core technology. The bat has POP....but at a competitive price.

Cons:  White tap handle will show

Pros:  Got this bat for playing in High School, best perchase Ive made. Large sweetspot, absolutely no vibration, and pop is fantastic.

Cons:  Grip wears down after a few uses. (I replaced it with LizardSkin after noticing this), and if not hit in barrel, ball will not go more than a foot due to 100% of the material is located in the barrel

Pros:  Great pop off this bat. The first twenty hits of the season were remarkably better distance. Good line drives too. It's heavier by an ounce, and my son (14 yo) is also bigger, taller stronger, etc., but I still feel that this bat is an all around good pick. For 89.00 this bat is a steal over other bats of similar quality.

Cons:  Your son has to fit into the lengths available, which are only 33 & 34. I have no idea about the durability, as I just bought it, but it seems nicely constructed.

I am 5'10 1/2 and weigh 180, what drop do you recommend?

Per your height and weight, we would recommend getting the Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK in a 33 inch 30 ounce model.

What weight should I use, a 33/30 or a 32/29? I'm 15 and 5’ 10” 163 pounds. I'm comfortable with a 33".

Based on your size, I would recommend the 32" option of the Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK. However, if you are already comfortable with a 33" bat then you could certainly go that route as well.

Is there a difference between the 2016 and 2017 models of this bat?

The 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MK features a little longer barrel for a larger sweet spot than the Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK, but other than that, they would be very similar.

Is this version going to be legal in 2018?

BBCOR bats, such as the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK, are required in high school and college and will not be changing in 2018, so they will still be legal at those ages.

Is there a break in period? Is this bat damaged with the yellow dimple balls at batting cages?

Due to the composite material of the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK, we suggest 150-200 swings off a tee or soft toss while rotating the barrel 1/4 turn between swings to break in the bat. The rubber dimple balls often used in batting cages tend to damage any bat since they are more dense than regular baseballs.

For playing in colder weather, what aluminum bat would you recommend that is most like the composite Mako bat?

I would recommend the 2016 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16ZH) as a good aluminum alternative to the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK).

How does this bat's sweet spot and weight compare to the new DeMarini CF Zen? Which would be better for a contact hitter like I am?

The sweetspot on the two bats is pretty similar, maybe a slight edge to the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK, but it is also going to run a little heavier, but would work well for a contact hitter.

How does this bat compare to the Combat Maxum BBCOR?

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) is going to feature a two piece fully composite design while the ComBat Maxum BBCOR features a one piece composite design. The Mako is going to have a lot more flex than the Maxum, which limits the vibrations. Both of them are very high end options.

I am choosing between two bats that are 31/28. Would you recommend the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR or the 2015 Easton S2Z BBCOR? I prefer a more balanced bat.

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK and the Easton S2Z ZCORE BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB15S2Z are both great bats. They both feature a balanced swing weight. The biggest difference between the two is that the Easton MAKO features a full composite design and the S2Z is going to feature a composite handle with an alloy barrel.

My 13 year old son is 6'3", 190 lbs. Currently using a 32" drop 3. Seeing your recommendations to others similar to him in size (but older), would you recommend he move up to a 33"?

Based on your player's size, we would suggest moving up to a 33" if not a 34" 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK.

I am a freshman that might play JV and Varsity. I'm 5'6" and 150 lbs. I swung a MAKO XL (-5) most recently. Should I get an XL or just a MAKO (I lead the team in homeruns, triples and doubles with a batting average of .418)?

If you liked the end-load on the MAKO XL (-5) that was used in the past and you feel that you can handle the end-loaded 29 oz weight of the 32" MAKO XL BBCOR (BB16MKL), then I think going with the XL BBCOR model would be just fine for you in that size.

I'm about 5'5 1/2" 145 lbs. Would you recommend the 31" or the 32"? I've used a 32" for awhile and have trouble getting my hands around at times, would this be because the bat is too heavy?

If you are having issues getting the barrel head through the zone then the bat would certainly be too heavy and it would be more practical to swing a 31" bat (typically these 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK weigh about 1.5 ounces heavier than listed weight).

How does that bat compare to the Marucci Cat 7?

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK and the Marucci Cat 7 will be two completely different bats as the MAKO is a two-piece composite bat with a balanced swing weight while the Marucci Cat 7 will be a one-piece alloy bat with a balanced swing weight. When comparing the bats further, the Marucci Cat 7 will weigh close to the listed weight while the MAKO, on average, will run about 1.5 ounces heavier.

I am a 8th grader 5'5" 140 lb. Would you recommend a 31 or a 32 inch? I want a bat I can use all high school. (I also work out every day). What is the difference between the Mako 2016 and the Mako XL 2016?

Based on your height and weight we would recommend a 31"/28 ounce 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK). The difference between the Mako and the Mako XL is going to be the regular Mako is a balanced bat while the Mako XL is going to be an end loaded bat. Hope this helps.

What is the difference between the Mako 2016 and the Mako XL 2016?

The difference between the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK and MAKO XL model will be the weight distribution. The MAKO XL will have an end-loaded swing weight design while the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK will have a balanced design. Essentially, the MAKO XL is a better option for a power hitter while the regular MAKO is a good option for those that are more of contact/gap-to-gap hitters.

What is the difference other than obvious (price and looks) between the 2017 and 2016 Mako models?

The main difference between the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) and the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17MK) is going to be the 2017 version features the Extended Speed Barrel which is 1.5 Inches Longer than the 2016 version.

This 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) will make more of a "crack" sound at contact with a baseball (due to the barrel being made of composite material).

How many break in pitches does this bat need and does it ever run out of pop?

We recommend about 150 to 200 swings off of a tee to break in the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK and most other composite bats. Also, be sure to rotate the bat a quarter of an inch after each swing to break in all sides of the bat. As for the pop of the MAKO it will run out of pop over time just from normal use but there is not set time period that a bat will last.

This 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) will come with a two-piece, all-composite design while the Z-CORE Whiteout is a one-piece, all-alloy bat. Both bats will have pretty balanced swing weights, but at contact, this MAKO will feature a significant amount of barrel flex while the Z-CORE will be pretty stiff in the barrel at contact. Your decision should come down to the build you prefer the most and the feel you like at contact.

Although I do not have an exact confirmation of a date, I would think that most likely the 2017 Easton BBCOR models should be released in August or September of 2016.

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK should be ready to go right out of the wrapper. If you feel that it needs more pop, hit about 50 soft toss pitches and it will be good. But no it should pretty much be at full strength the day you open it.

One is not necessarily more beneficial for power as this will be determined by the bat speed one is able to generate.

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 33" model in the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK. The MAKO is pretty hot out of the wrapper, but it will still benefit from a break-in of about 50 swings. It is best to take those swings off a tee and gradually work you swing speed up from 50%, while rotating the barrel every few swings.

I am a rising 10th grader and am trying to decide between this bat, the Mako XL, or Rawlings Trio. I am leaning towards this bat because of the past models success and the price of this year's, but I haven't heard a lot of things from this years model. Why is that? I consider myself a contact hitter with good bat speed and occasional power and hit fifth in the order. Which bat should I get?

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK, the Rawlings Trio and the MAKO XL are all good bats to consider. The MAKO XL will feature an end-loaded swing weight and will be better suited for a power hitter. For someone that is more of a contact hitter, we would recommend going with a balanced weighted bat like the MAKO or the Trio. As for why there may not be many reviews on the current MAKO model, this can typically be attributed to customers purchasing the 2015 model to take advantage of the cost savings. Now that the 2016 MAKO model has been reduced in price we would not be surprised to see more customers purchase this bat. It offers a two-piece composite design with a very balanced swing weight.

I'll be 15 in a few months, I'm about 5'10" and 150 lbs. I consider myself a very diverse hitter because I hit for power, but I also consistently drive the ball to opposite field. I'm debating over whether I should get a MAKO or MAKO XL. Thoughts on sweet spot and pop comparison?

When comparing this 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) and the MAKO XL BBCOR, you'll find that the MAKO XL will feature the longer barrel length and result in a slightly longer sweet spot (MAKO XL will also be end-loaded). In regard to "pop", this BB16MK model has a slight advantage in the JustBats customer reviews, but overall, I think the two bats will be pretty similar in regard to "pop". (My general recommendation for you would be for a 32"/29 oz model of each bat. Just be sure you can handle the 29 oz weight)

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK will feature a balanced swing weight design while the MAKO XL will have an end-loaded swing weight. Based on the fact that you are more of a doubles hitter it would be more beneficial to swing a balanced bat like the MAKO. End-loaded bats like the MAKO XL are going to benefit a power hitter more.

My son is 14 years old, 5'11" and 147 lbs. He is a power hitter. Would you recommend the BB16MK or the BB16MKL?

Typically, power hitters will prefer an end-loaded bat like the 2016 Easton MAKO XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MKL. The reason for this is an end-loaded bat can potentially create more power. The way this is achieved is due to the smaller sweet spot that is more concentrated in weight. This will help create more whip/pendulum effect. When the ball is squared up properly there is greater chance of increased distance. The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK is a balanced swing and will be a great bat for the contact type hitter. The reason for this is the barrel will be easier to control with the balanced swing weight; this is achieved by spreading the weight of the bat evenly throughout the entire barrel, giving a larger sweet spot but less concentrated in weight.

I purchased the 33"/30 oz version of the regular MAKO and I'm thinking of returning it because I want the XL version. Would the XL version improve the distance and is it worth returning the regular MAKO?

If this 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) was purchased from JustBats originally and is in unused condition, it can always be sent back for a full refund or exchange. If you consider yourself a power hitter, then it might be advantageous to have a bat with an end-loaded swing weight like the MAKO XL to increase distance in your hits. However, if you have used balanced bats in the past and have seen the results you like, then a move to an end-loaded bat would not be a complete necessity.

What's the difference between this MAKO and the 2014 MAKO?

This 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) has the same TCT Thermo Composite Technology as the 2014 model of this bat. The biggest differences between the bats will be the cosmetics and the new grip on the 2016 version of the MAKO.

I just turned 13, and I am going to play in the junior division for Little League. I am thinking about getting a composite BBCOR bat. I am 5 foot 7 and about 140 pounds. What length do you recommend?

What is the difference between this bat and the XL version of this bat? I have also seen many reviews about the bat vibrating?

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK features a balanced swing weight and is typically better for contact hitters. The MAKO XL features a slightly end loaded swing weight and it is typically a better option for power hitters. The MAKO is a good bat at breaking up vibration. The two-piece design and CXN technology helps minimize sting and vibration.

Is there a difference in barrel length between this Mako and last year's model? Also, how does the Mako stack up against the Prime 916?

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) will have the same dimensions as last years model and would perform very much to the same level. Both bats would compare to the 2016 Louisville Slugger Prime 916 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBP9163) very well.

What's the difference between the grip on the BB16MK and the BB15MK?

The grip tape on the 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) is thinner and feels more "tacky." The grip tape on the Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB14MK) is going to be more raised.

My son is 16 yrs old 6'3" 170 lbs. He was using a DeMarini 31"/28 ounce -3 but has outgrown it. Wondering what size bat you recommend? He pitches and is top of the order not necessarily a power hitter.

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would recommend using a 33" 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK.

My son is a 14 year old freshman (5’3”, 110 lbs.) who is a top-of-the-order type of line-drive (gap) hitter. Needs a new -3 BBCOR bat. We’re on the fence between the Easton Mako BB16MK and the Demarini CF8. I noticed that the Mako starts at 31/28, but the CF8 is available in a 30/27. Not sure if the 1 oz. will make a big difference, but we figure every little bit helps with increasing his bat speed. Which is a more balanced (less end-loaded) bat for a faster swing with a smaller player?

The 2016 Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB16MK) and the 2016 DeMarini CF8 BBCOR Baseball Bat (DXCFC) are both great options to consider for someone using BBCOR. Both bats will feature a balanced feel. With that said, I would suggest going with a 30/27 (assuming player is not use to the drop 3) to give the individual a better chance of success based on the player's height and weight.

My son uses a 2 1/4 Easton S2 composite bat that is 29/16oz. It looks like this one. He will be trying out for his middle school team and needs to use a BBCOR bat. He also is playing travel and can use a BBCOR bat there as well. So, we are looking for a BBCOR bat. He is concerned that the BBCOR drop 3 bat will be too heavy and slow his bat speed. He is 12 and is 5 foot 135 pounds. What size bat do you recommend for him?

Going from a 29"/16 ounce to a BBCOR bat is going to be a big jump. I would recommend a 29"/26 ounce 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS) for your son.

Description for Easton MAKO BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MK
For 2016, Easton has brought the most expansive line of power and performance to the market with the all-new Power Brigade Series!

TCT Thermo Composite Technology is the key to the MAKO's industry-leading swing speed, massive sweet spot, and pure feel on contact. This innovative material comprises both the barrel and handle which are united by Easton's patented 2-PC ConneXion Technology. By isolating the handle from the barrel with the connection joint, energy transfer is maximized while simultaneously eliminating any unwanted vibration. The MAKO's foundation is then optimized with a lower Swing Weight Index for one of the lightest swing weights on the market.

This Easton MAKO baseball bat features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, -3 length to weight ratio, new HYPERSKIN Performance Grip, and it is BBCOR Certified for High School and Collegiate Play.
