Pros: No Pros at this point. Minimal stinging and we canâ€™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.

My grandson is a bigger 11-year-old. He will be going to middle school next year which requires a BBCOR bat. He loves the Z-Core but the "smallest" one I can find is 31-28. I'm hoping he can swing something that long. Do you ever get returns on the 30-27? I just want to make sure he can get around on the ball quick enough.
We typically don't get a lot of returns on aluminum bats since after they have been used we are no longer able to return them. Additionally, for the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX we will not be receiving any more in.

The swing weights of the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX and the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXVIC are very comparable, since both feature similarly weighted end loads.
My son used the 2015 Easton XL1 (-8) at 13u and the 2016 Mako XL (-5) at 14u. Just wondering what current bat would be similar to this type of bat? He's 6' 3" and 165 lbs. He's a power hitter but also bats for average.
The closest current model to the 2016 Mako would be the 2017 Easton Mako Beast BBCOR. The only difference is the 2017 model is a balanced version, while the 2016 Mako XL was an end-loaded model.

My player is 15 year-old that bats 4th in line-up. Comparing the Louisville Slugger (BBP9173), Easton (BB17ZH) and the Easton (BB17ZX). What is your recommendation?
If you prefer a two-piece, all-composite bat with a balanced swing weight; then my suggestion would be the Prime 917 from Louisville Slugger. However, if it is an alloy barrel bat you would like, then this 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZX) or the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH) would be the bats to consider.
