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.

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:   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.

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 9 and is 4’7" 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Is this bat legal for 13-15 year old? Or the leagues known as Babe Ruth or Junior League?

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.

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.

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.

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.
