How come the end cap on this bat is different from college teams? It's the same bat but (Florida & UCLA) have plastic end caps but on here they are not?

College programs like Florida or UCLA will have their 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX custom made. It is not uncommon for players at these programs to use bats in different colorways, etc. than what are sold retail wise. As for the end cap material, the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX features a plastic end cap.

What's the difference between this & last year's model because the sound on the 2016 vs the 2017 sounds totally different.

The alloy material changed in 2018 Easton Beast X models compared to what was used in the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX. This change in material can certainly create a different sound on contact.

Is this any different than the Beast X Loaded?

This bat is very similar to the Beast X Loaded in that it is also a one-piece alloy design and has an end loaded swing weight. The Beast X Loaded does use Easton's new ATAC Alloy compared to the HMX Alloy used in the Z-Core.

I know they have contracts with the teams. My question was why are they all using the full aluminum bats instead of the composite bats?

The bat manufacturers use both composite and alloy because of the different feels for the hitters. Some prefer the alloy, such as in the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX.

What is the difference between the 2016 MAKO XL and this bat?

Is this bat ok to use in cold weather?

Unfortunately, the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX and really any bat on the market should not be used in temperatures below 55 degrees. The ball becomes more dense in the colder temperatures and that is what can damage a bat and weaken the bats performance.

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.

I am 6'4 190 lbs. I have been swinging a 33" for the last 2 seasons now and I was wondering if I should move to a 34"?

Based on your height and weight, we suggest moving up to the 34" model of the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX.

Which bat is better for a power hitter, the Z-Core speed or the Z-Core XL?

Power hitters tend to prefer a more end loaded. With that being said, the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX would be a better bat for a power hitter.

How does the swing weight of this bat compare to the voodoo insane?

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.

What's the difference between the XL and Speed versions of these bats?

This 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZX) will differ from a SPEED version of this bat as the XL version has more mass added to the barrel of the bat and will feel end-loaded while being swung. A Z-CORE SPEED bat will have an even weight distribution and the SPEED type of bat will be the easiest for a player to swing with the fastest speed.

How does this bat compare to the Marucci CAT 7 and the Voodoo One?

This 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZX) will be similar to the CAT 7 and the Voodoo One as all bats are one-piece, all-alloy. However, where the CAT 7 and Voodoo One are balanced feeling, this Z-CORE XL will be end-loaded.

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. To make a decision between those two bats, you'll need to decide if you want the one-piece, end-loaded design of the Z-CORE XL or the two-piece, end-loaded build of the Z-CORE Hybrid.

How does this bat compare to the Louisville Slugger 716?

The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX will have a one-piece design with an end-loaded swing weight design. The 2016 Louisville Slugger Select 716 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBS7163 will have a hybrid design, featuring a two-piece design with a composite handle and alloy barrel. This bat too will feature an end-loaded design. Both are great bats although the 716 from LS will reduce vibration more from off-centered hits due to the two-piece construction. The Z-CORE XL will be stiffer since it is a one-piece design and could potentially help generate more power because of this.
