Description

Adidas baseball bats are being used by some of the top collegiate programs because of their reliability and proven performance at the plate. The Aero Burner Hybrid was created with elite level players in mind and is guaranteed to increase both ball flight and batting average. This two-piece, hybrid construction is made up of a 100% carbon fiber handle and an Aeroburner alloy barrel that maximizes the sweet spot, provides explosive power, and delivers a slightly end loaded swing weight that's recommended for heavy hitters. Adidas has also utilized what's called the Energy Recoil System that combines with a rubberized ring to maximize stiffness at the connection point with minimal sting in the hands. On one end, the Texin end cap helps enhance overall durability and extends the barrel profile while the EQT grip tape on the other end helps improve both comfort and control. Adidas: Anything is Possible!

This Adidas AeroBurner Hybrid Baseball Bat (AEROHY18) features a drop 3 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, and the BBCOR certification for high school and collegiate approval.

Stepping up to High School Ball Wisconsin baseball parent

Pros: we were impressed with the performance of the new Adidas bag at the minute our son put in his hands. Great pop off the bat and glad that somebody gave us a direction on the Adidas product more so than their competitors.

Cons: we have not found any downside to the bed yet it's a good solid product and once again just the great pop off the bat

2018 Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: The Syd player

Pros: No Pros at this point. Minimal stinging and we can't rate the durability since we just got it for the Colorado Triple Crown tournament.

Cons: The 2018 Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (AEROHY18) is definitely not hot out of the wrapper. My 14 year old is 215 and a power hitter and the this bat does not have the pop of his Demarini wood bat. Good thing it has a 30-day money back gaurantee. We will try it a little longer.

Nice bat Michael Parent

Pros: Bought it for my son, a freshmen in high school, he loves it. Bat feels great especially after I re-griped it with some lizard skin grip. He’s been hitting good with it. The high school team has bats from cat-8 to CFin and he chooses his Addias over all of them.

Cons: Scuffs really easy. But we don’t care about that.

One of the best bats out there Noah Wagy Player

Pros: The bat is more end loaded than reviews give it credit for, making it great for a doubles/home run hitter. It has a big barrel and has a lot of pop. As a college player, I’ve swank a lot of bats and this is without a doubt one of the best that I’ve used. The end cap on the bat is not exposed, so consistently hitting balls off of the end of the bat will not eventually break the cap. I have hit balls on and off the barrel and felt no vibration. Overall the adidas aero burner is an exceptional bat.

Cons: The only thing I was dissatisfied with was the grip. Like most all bats, the grip that comes on the bat isn’t the most durable, but that’s an easy fix.

Cons: After one tournament lots of chips around the end. No other negatives about this bat.

How does this bat differ from the EQT X2?
jt
The 2018 Adidas AeroBurner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 features a slightly end-loaded swing weight, two-piece design with the AeroBurner alloy and composite handle. This bat will differ from the older Adidas EQT X2 BBCOR Baseball Bat: X2 as the barrel materials have changed as well as the taper of the model. Both bats will have the two-piece hybrid design with the end-loaded swing weight.
Cameron
I'm looking for a BBCOR bat for my 7th grader. In the past he used a Easton S2 and really liked it. I think he liked the slight flex feeling of the 2-piece design. Especially for the price, I'm considering this bat, but I'm nervous of the review about vibration/sting. Just looking for a little more input on what to expect if we tried this bat.
Chad
The 2018 Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 will feature a similar concept design of the Easton S2 as both are/were hybrid bats with an alloy barrel and composite handle. As far as sting, with the 30 day guarantee that Adidas offers one can rest assured that they will not be stuck with the bat after use if one is finding the vibration too great to handle.
Cameron
How end loaded is this bat and how does it differ from the Easton Beast X Speed?
baez
The 2018 Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 is slightly end-loaded as this bat is a hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle. As for how this bat compares to the Easton Beast X Speed, this bat is a one-piece alloy model with a balanced swing weight.
Cameron
My grandson is a 13 year old freshman who weighs less than 115 pounds. Is this bat too heavy for him?
Herman Tucker
This Adidas Aero Burner is a BBCOR model for high school play, and like all BBCOR models this is a -3 model. This means that a 31" model would weigh 28 oz, a 32" would weigh 29 oz, and so on. As to whether it is too heavy, that depends on each individual player, but I would suggest a 31" or 30" for his weight.
Kyle J.
I still use the one piece Adidas EQT x1. Will Adidas make any more one piece bats and how does the hybrid compare to a full one piece alloy?
Joe
Adidas does make a one piece allow that will be similar to the Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18. The model that you are looking for will be the Adidas Aero Burner BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROBB-Red, you can view that at https://www.justbats.com/product/adidas-aero-burner-bbcor-baseball-bat--aerobb-red/28113/.

Just bought for my son who is a junior in high school. Can he use this bat right out of the box or does he need to break barrel in even if it’s an alloy barrel?
Matt Stuart
The Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 will be hot out of the wrapper and will not need to break in the model. If he is a junior in high school he will able to use the Adidas Aero Burner Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: AEROHY18 out of the wrapper.

How does the Aero Burner Hybrid compare to the Slugger Select?

Something special about it 1bigkid parent

Pros: What this bat offers that's different is the slight end load you can add that makes it feel a lot different from the other end loaded bats. It feels like the zcore speed but with more weight and that adds to the pop. You wouldn't think there is that much of a difference between a drop 3 and drop 2.5 but when your generating the same bat speed the drop 2.5 will drive it farther. I got the bat because I have two boys one year apart and thought I can save on cost having them use the same bat. I haven't swapped out the balanced weight yet they both love it. It has that great thin easton handle along with that durable easton grip that my sons have grown up to love. Has a huge sweet spot.

Cons: I heard the weights and blank plug are not legal in College. You don't want to lose the pouch that comes with the tool and weights. I have no idea how those weights are going to hold up. My sons have only used it for about 20 games now and it seems good but who knows i haven't touched the weights since I got the bat. A bit of brick dust, clay and moisture in the threads and it might cement that screw in there. Despite the cons this is a 5 star overall bat.

Does this bat have the USABat logo on it. This is the requirement for Babe Ruth in 2018.
Troy Sperr
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL will not feature a USA bat certification. The USA bat certification bats will be released in September, those bats will be legal for 2018 Babe Ruth.
Max
Is this an approved bat for Little League and Cal Ripken with new rule changes starting 2018?
Steven Foard
Cal Ripken and Little League have not yet released their rules in regard to the use of BBCOR bats in divisions below high school. We will have to wait and get official set of 2018 rules before we make a statement. However, I do know that this 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZLL) would be legal for the high school divisions of those leagues.

Max
I weigh between 130-140 pounds. I'm about 5'8-5'9 and am looking to buy an Easton bat for my league that is BBCOR certified. I am 14 years old, turning 15 in November. The bats I am considering to buy are the MAKO Beast 2017 BB17MK, this 2018 Z-Core Lock & Load BB17ZLL, the Z-Core Speed BB17SZ - with the black and blue colorway specifically - and also the Z Core Hybrid Model of 2017 with the black and neon yellow colorway specifically. Can someone please describe each of those 4 models (how they compare, how they are different, what kind of hitter is best designed for each bat, which is most durable) and what bat you would recommend for me to buy. I'm planning to buy one of these bats in a 31 inch but whoever answers this feels that I should get a inch higher or so, please put that in your response.
BennyDaJet
Based on your height and weight, it would be best to get a 32 inch model. As for which bat to get, the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL, the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MK, the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZS, or the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZH, this will ultimately depend on whether you prefer composite, alloy, one-piece or two-piece and balanced or end loaded. All four bats are great options to consider with the only one being slightly end loaded (Z-CORE Hybrid). The MAKO and Z-CORE Hybrid are both two-piece constructed bats and are better equipped to reduce vibration from off centered hits than the other Z-CORE models. Ultimately comes down to personal preference but based on your age, as well as height and weight, it would be best to consider either the MAKO, Z-CORE Speed or the Z-CORE Lock & Load since these bats are all balanced. If you are concerned about your hands stinging from a missed hit then you will want to get the MAKO.
Cameron
How will the bat stay -3 and BBCOR legal after you change the swing weight?
p
Since it is heavier than a -3 when you add weight and features the BBCOR certified stamp the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZLL) will still be BBCOR certified no matter what piece you add on it.

Carter
Can this bat with the weights be used in college?
batguy

Ben
Difference between this bat and the Ghost X 2018?

The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL is a one-piece alloy bat that you can adjust and make end loaded or balanced by adjusting the attachment in the end cap. While the Ghost X is a two-piece fully composite with a balanced swing weight. Performance wise the two bats are equally good.

Is this bat legal for PONY ball at the Bronco (11-12) level? According to PONY's web page the -3 BBCOR bat is legal. Just want to make sure.
Gregg
This bat would be legal if your league allows BBCOR bats at that age. You may want to double check with your coach or league commissioner to be sure about the rules for your specific age range.

Is this bat good for power hitters? I'm 6'2" and 220lbs and hit for power.

The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL features LOCK & LOAD Adjustable Swing Weight Technology that Offers Speed, Balanced, & XL Settings. This means you can adjust the bat to feature an end-loaded swing weight which is typically what I see power hitters swing.

If this is the 2018 lock and load why they didn't make it with the atec new alloy instead of the hyper matrix? How balance is this bat for a freshman 14 yr baseball player. Will it be durable?
Q
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL features HMX (Hyperlite Matrix) Alloy Construction which provides unbeatable durability. The LOCK & LOAD Adjustable Swing Weight Technology Offers Speed, Balanced, & XL Settings. You can adjust this bat to feature a more balanced swing weight for your player.

Is this bat legal in Babe Ruth 2018?
Snagadreem
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL will be allowed for Babe Ruth leagues, ages 13 and above. Any league with player's younger than that will only be allowed to use a USA certified bat.
Tyler
With the heaviest weight installed - will this be similar in end-loaded-feel to the Z Core XL?
OldSchool
Yes, with the adjustable swing weight settings of the 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL you will be able to scale the end loaded feature akin to that of another Easton end loaded bat.
Tyler
Is this bat a 2 piece composite bat or is it one piece aluminum bat? And if it is 1 piece aluminum bat will I get a lot of vibration?
Tie
The 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL is a one-piece alloy bat and thus a player will feel vibration from off-centered hits due to one-piece bats no flexing on contact. How much vibration will be felt is tough to say though.

How to I find/order a new set of end barrel weights that originally came with my Easton Z-Core bat?
RML
If you are looking for more barrel weights for this 2018 Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL, I would recommend reaching out to Easton directly to see if they would be able to provide those.
Tyler
I heard white bats may be illegal next year. Do you have details? Will this bat be included in the new rule?
Rob Maloney
There is a new rule that will be in place in the 2020 season for collegiate play that outlaws bats with the primary colorway white. As long as your player is not playing in college the Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL will be legal for play.
Max
Which one would you rather buy: the Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL or the Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5?
Kyle Force
Whether or not to get the Easton Z-CORE Lock & Load BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZLL or the Marucci F5 BBCOR would come down to personal preference. Since I have not used either bat it would be impossible for me to give my opinion. Both bats are one-piece alloy models so there would not be much difference between the two, assuming one could not use the load and load feature on the Easton (cannot use this in college).
