Pros:   Today a local training facility had a Easton bat demo day, in which you could try all the new 2017 bats from Easton. My favorite bat that I tried was the XL3. Honestly, I tried the new 2017 Mako Beast XL, and I thought it had decent pop, but it felt like it had a heavier MOI (Moment of Inertia), or swing weight than the BBCOR version of the Mako Beast XL, and the Xl3. I also believe the 2016 model has equal or better performance than new Beast XL. The Xl3 is the superior bat this year because I feel like it has a much lower swing weight than Beast XL, even though they are both labeled as a top heavy bats. I also believe I can get my hand threw the zone much quicker because of that lower swing weight, and I believe both bats have great bats have great pop, but in my opinion if you hit the ball right, the XL3 has a much better feel on contact.

Cons:  None yet on this astounding bat.

Pros:  Ok so our son made the local 12 u travel team, so we started looking for him a bat. A friend recommended justbats.com so after reading review after review we decided to go with the new 2016 Easton XL 3. What a GREAT choice we made. So a couple weeks go by and we are playing in our first tournament and our son gets up to the plate. Batting 9 in the batting order he hit a dinger over the center field fence in his first at bat !!!! Man was we so proud his first ever home run !!!

Cons:  None so far

Pros:  I originally bought this bat after reading some reviews. My son is 13 and next year he'll have to use a drop -5 so I thought I'd buy something decent he could practice with and occassionally use. Anyway, his drop -10 died so he had to use this bat for the tournament this weekend! Wow, the first game he went 3/4 with great pop. The second game he hit his first home run, priceless!

Cons:  none

Pros:  My son plays 13U baseball. His first time up with this bat he hit a line drive triple over the left fielder's head. He hit the ball hard during his other at bats as well so it seems that this bat has good pop and he really likes it.

Cons:  Unfortunately, during my son's second game using this bat, he hit the ball off the end of the bat and the end cap broke and half of it came off the bat rendering the bat useless.

I'm 14 years old. Last year, I had a -8, XL3 and did well. I was just wanting to know which bat would have more pop? Should I stay with an XL3 or get something different?

Since you did well with the XL3 (-8) last season, I would recommend getting another XL3, but moving up to the -5 length-to-weight ratio. This 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17X35) will feature a -5 length-to-weight ratio and a decent end-loaded feel like the bat you have used in the past.

My son is 5'3" and 130 lbs. He is 12 years old and is ready to move up to a (-5). I'm thinking about purchasing him the 31x26 in this bat. Do you think this is the right size for him? Also, he had the S3 last year and dented/cracked 2 of them. Is this bat a lot more durable than the S3?

Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest the 31" 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X35, as you mentioned. The 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X35 will be more durable than the lighter S3 he swung previously.

If you are looking for a one-piece bat with an end-loaded swing weight, I would definitely recommend this 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17X35). The end-load will definitely benefit a power hitter. Also, as long as the -5 length-to-weight ratio is optimal for him, this would definitely be the bat to get.

Does this bat have the rotating handle? Or is that a different bat series. I personally don't like the twisting barrel. And do end loaded bats have more pop than balanced bats? I'm a stronger kid for my age and size and am strongly considering the weight distribution.

This bat does not having the rotating handle technology. That was implemented in the Torq line of Easton bats. End loaded bats can provide more power due to the added weight in the barrel providing more mass at contact, at the cost of a heavier swing weight. They are suited to power hitters who can handle the added swing weight.

Both the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 and the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK5 are end-loaded models. The big difference between the two is the 2016 Easton MAKO XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK5 will be an all composite model with a connection point, allowing this bat to reduce vibration more so on off-centered hits, while the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 is a one-piece all alloy bat.

What does it mean to be -5, or -6, or -7?

Those number represent the length to weight ratio which is a way of measuring the bats. You take the length of the bat and subtract that number and that gives you the weight of the bat. The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 is a -5 so if it is a 30" bat, then it would be a 25 oz.

My kid is a 7th grader that is 5'7" and weighs 110 lbs. Do you recommend this bat in -5 for him (he has a 32"/24 oz right now)?

Based upon your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35) in the same 32" length (as his current bat), as long as he can handle the subsequent 27 oz weight (and the end-loaded swing weight). As a 7th grader, I think that moving to a -5 bat is smart so that you can prepare to use the BBCOR (-3) bats that are required in high school.

End cap on my son's XL3 broke into pieces after he hit a ball on the edge of the barrel and end cap. There is no other structural damage to the barrel, its just the end cap. Can the end cap be purchased or replaced or does the entire bat need to be returned to Easton?

It may be a bit of an adjustment, but if you feel that your player can handle the end-loaded 25 oz weight of the 30" option of this 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35), then I would recommend getting this bat in the size option.

Is this bat legal for Junior Babe Ruth?

Unfortunately, I was not able to determine the exact division of Babe Ruth baseball to which you were referring. If you were referring the 13-15 year old division, then yes, this 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35) will be legal for use.

My son is 11 yo and pretty strong for his age. He's 4'9 and weighs 90 lbs. He used a 28 in Louisville Slugger Assault last year and loved it. We know he needs to move up in size, however would like to know your recommendations. Looking for a comparable alternative to the assault?

Based upon your player's height and weight, we would recommend going with a 30" model of Youth Big Barrel/Senior league bat. This 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X35) will be a single-piece, all-alloy bat like the Assault; but be end-loaded in its swing weight (the Assault was balanced). As well, this specific XL3 model has a -5 length-to-weight ratio. For an 11 year old player I would be more likely recommend a bat that has a -8 length-to-weight ratio like the SL16X38 model.

How does the 2016 Easton XL3 differ from the 2015 XL3? Paint job only? Material difference?

The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X35 is going to feature an extra-long barrel design that expands the hitting zone and HYPERSKIN Grip while the 2015 Easton XL3 will not. You are correct in saying the cosmetics are different but they will feature the same Hyperlite Matrix Alloy that is said to create an expanded sweet spot and greater durability.
