Got a question about the 2017 COMBAT Maxum -14 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP7MX114 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
Can this bat be used in Pony Shetland 6U?
Since the Shetland Division appears to be T-Ball, I believe that this 2017 COMBAT Maxum -14 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP7MX114) would be okay for use. However, to be safe, I might recommend asking the league if it will be permitted as it is a fastpitch bat and only features an ASA certification stamp on it.
Does the 27 in 13 oz bat have a USSSA stamp?
The 2017 COMBAT Maxum -14 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP7MX114 will only feature the ASA certification stamp.
Does this bat meet intramural requirements? Have the official softball stamp and ASA stamp?
I would not recommend this 2017 COMBAT Maxum -14 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP7MX114) bat for intramural slowpitch play as it is a fastpitch bat. It will say "Official Softball", but it does not have the ASA stamp that is needed for slowpitch softball (ASA stamp for fastpitch and slowpitch are different).
Can this bat be used for USSSA?
Unfortunately, the 2017 COMBAT Maxum -14 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP7MX114) only features the ASA stamp. This bat would not be approved for play in USSSA.
My daughter is almost 8, 48" tall and around 50 pounds. Which bat size is best for her?
Based on her height and weight, we recommend a 26" 2017 COMBAT Maxum -14 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP7MX114).

My daughter will turn 11 in June and this will be her 1st year playing Fastpitch Softball shes approximately 5'3" and 130lbs what bat would you recommend?
I would recommend the 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 in a 32 inch bat length. I think the -12 drop weight will benefit a player just starting out because of the lighter feel.
My daughter is 12 years old, 5'5, and 95lbs. Do you recommend this bat or the Louisville Xeno Plus?
Based off the information you've provided, I would recommend swinging a 32" bat. Both the 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 and the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 are excellent options. I would take your players strength into account when deciding between these two bats. Both the Hyperlite and the Xeno Plus feature two-piece, composite construction with balanced swing weights. However, the Hyperlite will be two ounces lighter than the Xeno Plus.
My daughter used an Easton CXN 30 drop 12. last year. She is in 8th grade grew a couple of inches and needs a new bat. While still on the small side (4â€™9â€ and 96 lbs) she has a really sound swing and very good power for her size. We are looking for a bat with serious power to help her pop. Thinking of the Hyperlite 32 drop 12. Thoughts?
This 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 is a solid option for your player. However, I would recommend going with a heavier option if you are looking for additional power. Maybe check out the 2017 Easton Stealth Flex -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17SF11.
My daughter is 10 y/o and is 58" and 105 lbs. She currently uses a 30" -12 aluminum bat. Her bat speed is not great but we're working on getting more lower body action into her swing. We are considering this bat or the Easton Stealth Flex FP17SF11 at 31" length. Any recommendations?
Based on what you have told us about your daughter and her height and weight we would recommend a 31"/19 ounce 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 for her.
I have an 8 1/2 year old who is about 4'10" tall and roughly 65 lbs. What size/weight would she need?
We would probably suggest a 30" length for her height and weight. As for weight of the bat, we can't really recommend that as things like strength and other factors affect that, but generally -10 to -12 are the most common drops for that age.
I have a 15 year old who is 5'4' 108 lbs. Playing freshman high school softball. What bat would you recommend?
Based off the information you've provided, I would recommend the 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 in a 32/20. If you think this bat will be too light, I would recommend the 2017 Easton Stealth Flex -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17SF11 which also features a two-piece, fully composite design, but will be one ounce heavier.
I have a 14 and 16 year old who are playing high school, 5â€™5 and weigh 140 to 160 lbs. What bat would you suggest?
We would recommend a 33"/21 ounce 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 for both payers.
Does it come in composite 33 x 23 and 2 1/4?
The 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 is a -12 bat, so a 33" would weigh 21 ounces. The 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12 is a composite bat, and features a 2 1/4" barrel diameter.
I purchased the FS3 last year for my daughter in 28"/16 oz. It actually weighed right at 18 oz. As well, she complained that it stung her hands and it was heavy. (1) Is the Hyperlite closer to the listed weight? (2) Is the Hyperlite forgiving (in regard to vibration reduction)?
(1) It is almost industry standard that bats will have a static weight around 0.5 oz to 1.5 oz over the listed weight (sometimes even more). I would imagine that this 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP17HL12) will have a static weight that is at least 1.5 oz over the listed weight. (2) Typically, the 2-piece bats do a solid job of limiting vibration. As well, we haven't gotten any bad remarks yet on vibration being emitted from this bat on miss-hits.
Is there a real difference between this bat and the Easton FS3 FP16S312? If so what? My daughter currently uses the FP16S312 31in drop 12, is there a benefit or harm going to a lighter bat? My daughter is 5-11 and weighs 81 pounds.
The main difference between the 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP17HL12) and the 2016 Easton FS3 CXN ZERO Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP16S312) is the type of composite used. The Hyperlight uses the HYPERLITE Composite while the FS3 uses the IMX Advanced Composite Barrel. They are very comparable in feel and performance. It is really just personal preference if she wants to go with the lighter option. There is not necessarily any benefit or harm, just what that individual player prefers.
