Bat Pack Anderson Flex and Easton S3 -10 Senior League Baseball Bats: SL17FLEXXL and SL15S310
* Click on each bat in the bat pack to get individual features for that bat
Pros: Light weight, well balanced
Cons: the vibration is the only flaw
Pros: The cost, the performance, the return policy. I planned to send it back but my son won't let me. It is half the price of similar bats but out performs them. I would give straight 5 stars but only had it for 2 months so too soon to know.
Cons: It doesn't have the sound of another brand of alloy bat.
Cons: My son used the bat for a season and I just didn't think it had zero pop. Balls that flew off another bat, were just soft fly balls. I think this might be a good batting cage bat, but not great for game use.
Pros: Being used by our 8U travel team and so far in 2 games players have hit 4 home runs with it over the 165 ft fence. Everybody that uses it hits the ball hard and so far everyone loves it. Seems to be more durable than the 2014 S3 also. Great balance bat with a light swing weight that the kids can get super fast hand speed with. This is the bat all the kids are reaching for now and the hits have gone up a lot. Ball pops off this bat and it sounds great.
Cons: Paint chips pretty easy but other than that no cons so far.
Pros: bad bat
Cons: it is the worst bad ever
Pros: bat is awsome and has a lot of pop. Also great wieght.
Cons: it is the best bat ever.
Pros: This bat has very good pop and the sound is great. My son has always had a Rival which in my opinion was the best bat Easton ever made. I have to say this bat has just as much pop as the rival and the durability so far has been great. I would definately recommend this bat for all players who want to hit bombs and linedrives.
Pros: Very good pop. We tried it out for the first time. My 9 year old boy took by BP yesterday. He's about 67 lbs, used a 27 length and 17 ounce (-10). The balls were flying off the bat! Had some nice hard hit line drives. One almost took my head off. We found one for $99!!! well worth the money. We were comparing it with the DeMarini Vexum. but it felt a little bit end loaded for him. He loves the bat.
Cons: None so far
Pros: I purchased this bat for one of my Grandson's. He had such great success with it I purchased another one for the other Grandson. Both love the Pop in this bat. At least 40% of his select team are using this model.
Pros: My son grew 4 inches in off season so had to get him a bigger bat. Bought the 30in 20oz version and my son loves it. He has always been a solid #2 hitter but with his added size and this bat his new coach moved him to 4-5. Went from hitting hard ground balls last season to driving the baseball over the outfielders heads. No HR so far this season but batting .730 with 52 at bats and 9 doubles. Some of the "smaller" kids on his team are also crushing the ball with his bat. Thinking about picking one up for my 8U player as well.
Cons: None. Love this Bat!
Pros: This bat is the bat to get. I personally like the fell of aluminum over composite. if you also like the fell of one piece bats this would be an excellent choose for you. One of the best hitters on my team can easily hit to the outfield with this bat. I am about the 5th best hitter and i easily hit over the left fielder head in batting practice. Also i have never had vibration with this bat. very balanced bat
Cons: Ever once and a great while this bat has a pop up. paint onbat could be just a little bit more durable
Pros: my son is a nine year old 80 pounds and this bat is perfect for him, his average increase from 184 to 375 withing 2 weeks and the hits are beautiful. he is driving the ball pass the outfielders.
Pros: My 7 year old son needed a longer heavier bat during a short fall ball season. He tried several other kids bats on the team & he settled on this one. Great buy for your money.
Cons: I have no cons at this time with the bat.
Pros: great pop it also has a verry good sound loving this bat
Cons: dents easy
Pros: Great pop. Feels very controlled.
Cons: Flat spots appear on the bat after a season of use.

Composite and aluminum bats are both good bats to use and one is not necessarily better than the other. Composite bats will be better in warmer weather and less likely to dent (but more likely to crack), will get hotter over time (after a break-in period of 150-200 swings), and won't make the loud ping sound. Aluminum bats are better in colder weather, more likely to dent overtime (this is typically a result of thinner walls) and are ready to use Day 1.

I'm having a hard time deciding between this bat and the 2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVXR. Could you tell me which bat would be best for contact hitting?
The 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310) will feature a one-piece full alloy construction featuring the Hyperlite Matrix Alloy. Additionally, it offers a well-balanced swing weight. The 2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXR) features a two-piece hybrid construction with a C6 Composite handle and an X12 Alloy barrel. It will also feature a well-balanced swing weight. Typically, we recommend two-piece models for contact or gap hitters due to the additional amount of flex through the zone, which can result in increased bat speeds.
My son is 4' 7" and weighs 65 lbs. He will be playing 11U travel baseball in the spring of 2015. He does not hit with a lot of power, but I'm thinking a big barrel bat may help. He needs to be able to generate bat speed. What size bat would be ideal? Any suggestions on the 2 pack bat packs?
For your son, we would regularly suggest going with a 29" model of the 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310) for your son. However, if bat speed is an issue I may suggest looking at a 28"/18oz. bat. I wouldn't suggest going lighter than 18 ozs. as we want your son to be able to progress regularly through bat sizes so that he will be ready to handle BBCOR size bats when high school begins in 3-4 years. I think the S3 series will be a great option for your son as it is built with balance in mind to provide a player with a quicker swing. Take a look at this bat pack: Bat Pack 2014 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL14S310B 2-Pack ).
My son is 9yrs old, 4'4 inches and weighs about 52 lbs. Starting in Jan. he is playing on a 9u select team. He wants to jump up to a big barrel bat. Would you suggest this bat?
The 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310) is a one-piece alloy bat with a balanced swing weight. The one piece alloy design is typically recommended for players that hit with more power. Based on your son's height and weight, we suggest using a 31" length bat.
I've read a lot reviews about Easton bats, and the cons seem to be that they dent easily. Does this bat have the same problem?
Unfortunately, we have not received much feedback on the 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310) at this point. Easton did improve the alloy used in the S3 between the 2014 and 2015 models, but it's tough to give you much insight into the durability at this point.
