Pros:  My son has been getting good pop from this bat and it has a big sweet spot.

Cons:  Only negatives are, my son is 9 and complains of a lot of stinging or vibration from this bat. I also wish they would have made the grip with a little bit of padding close to the knob to help with the "sting"

Pros:  My 10yr old loves it. Previously swung a 29/19 S3 and also a 29/20 Voodoo. Does feel a little more end loaded but after a couple round at the cages he got used to it. Has always swung all o the alloys out there and says this one feels the best. Ball comes off the barrell hot!

Cons:  None so far

What is the difference between Beast SL18BX8 and XL3 SL16X38 besides the barrel?

The 2018 Easton Beast X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX8 and the Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 are very similar bats. Both feature One-Piece, Alloy construction with an End-Load feel. The difference will be in the new Alloy used to construct the Beast X. The ATAC Alloy used for the Beast X results in a much stronger and more powerful barrel.

My son is transitioning to a 30"/22 oz bat and I would like to stay away from composite bats. He has swung the 2015 model Easton S3 bat for almost 3 years now. It has always had unreal pop and held up great. Those bats only come in a -10 length-to-weight ratio. Will this bat have the same kind of pop/sound as the S3, but without the deadening sound of the composite? Also, are they loaded similarly?

This 2018 Easton Beast X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX8) should be able to perform and sound just like the S3. However, this Beast X -8 will feature a bit of an end-loaded swing feel and will have more weight placed in the barrel of the bat when compared to the S3 bats your player has swung in the past. Sadly, for 2018, all the USSSA 1.15 rated Easton bats in the -8 length-to-weight ratio will be end-loaded in their feel.

Can this bat be used for Little League 12U? And what length is recommended for a 12 yr old 5' 3" tall player?

The 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X38 is a USSSA approved bat, so it is not legal for play in Little League. The Intermediate (50/70), Junior League, and Senior League divisions of Little League baseball require the use of either a new USA certified bat, or a BBCOR certified bat. Based on your players age, I would suggest a 30" length.

Are there any differences in the 2017 model of this bat from the 2016 other than aesthetics?

This 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17X38) is the exact same as the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X38) with the only exception being the cosmetics featured on the 2 bats.

Is there a major difference between the new 2017 XL3 -8 and the 2016 XL3 -8? Are there any dramatic technical advantages? Also, would this XL3 be a good bat for a 5 hole hitter who is 12 years old, 5'9", and 160 lbs?

The 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X38 and the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 have the exact same features aside from the cosmetics. The construction, technology, and material have not changed. The fifth batter in a line up is typically a power hitter. A one-piece, end-loaded model like the 2017 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17X38 is a suitable bat for a power hitter. For your height and weight, we recommend a 33" bat length. However, there are not many senior league models that are offered in a 33" length so you will most likely have to use a 32".
