Description

The latest and greatest members of the BBCOR Power Brigade are here and ready to be unleashed.

The Easton Z-CORE XL is a traditional one-piece, alloy construction with a massive end loaded swing weight geared towards power hitters nationwide. The extended barrel design creates more mass behind the ball at contact guaranteeing you further ball flight on each hit. Also known as the King of Ping, the Z-CORE has the biggest aluminum BBCOR barrel in baseball. Nothing else compares. More barrel means more sweet spot which turns into more power. With the Z-CORE internal core technology combined with the HMX (Hyperlite Matrix) alloy, the sweet spot has expanded for more hitting surface while the durability has improved tremendously. Furthermore, the thin 31/32 inch tapered handle comes wrapped with Easton's 1.2mm HYPERSKIN grip for an enriched grip and unmatched comfort. There is a reason the BBCOR Power Brigade had more at-bats, more hits, and more home runs than any other baseball bat swung at the College World Series. Easton: More Ping In Every Swing!

This Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX features a -3 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, and the BBCOR certification making it legal for play at the high school and collegiate level. Furthermore, Easton is backing this design with a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. If you're an elite hitter, purchase the Z-CORE XL today with free shipping right here at JustBats.com. We're here for you from Click to Hit!

2017 Easton z-core speed Ryan player

Pros: extremely big sweet spot, massive barrel, a ton of mass behind the head of the bat. If you are to use this bat go a sized lower

Cons: very unbalanced bat, extremely end-loaded for a "balanced bat". I dislocated my shoulder multiple times using this bat. I have just decided to make it a training bat at this point. was not worth the buy

Will this bat's grip just be the grey color or will it be the blue and grey color like the Z-CORE Speed?
leeroyjenkins
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX has an all grey grip color.
Jason
Are there any other end-loaded one piece aluminum bats on the market, or this the only one?
swrhoads
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZX) is currently the only end loaded one-piece bat on the market.
Damon
What Easton bat would compare to the XL3? I loved that bat.
M5
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX is the most similar bat to the XL3 from the past. The Z-CORE XL features a one-piece alloy design and an end loaded swing weight just like the XL3.
Jason
How does this bat compare to the Louisville Slugger 716?
jdog
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.
Cameron
Is there any difference (other than paint scheme) between the 2016 and 2017 versions of this bat?
Jeff
No, the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX and the 2016 model are the same bat other than the cosmetics. Both bats feature an end loaded swing weight and are made out of HMX alloy.
Jason
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?
Frank
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.
Ben
How does this bat compare to the Marucci CAT 7 and the Voodoo One?
GR
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.
Ben
What's the difference between the XL and Speed versions of these bats?
Jake
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.
Ben
How does the end-load of this bat compare to the end-load of the BBCOR EXOGRID 2?
Zach
This 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZX) will feature the end-loaded feel that will be heavier than what would have been felt on an EXOGRID 2.
Ben
How does this bat compare to the 2017 Velo?
Louie
Both bats will perform pretty well, however this Easton Z-Core is an end loaded bat, while the 2017 Velo is a balanced model.
Kyle J.
Is this bat allowed Cal Ripken Babe Ruth 13-15 year olds?
Tee
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX is legal for 13-15 division of Babe Ruth.
Cameron
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.
Jeff Wells
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.
Kyle J.
How does the swing weight of this bat compare to the voodoo insane?
Mike
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.
Logan
Which bat is better for a power hitter, the Z-Core speed or the Z-Core XL?
andrew
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.
Cooper
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"?
bumpinfuzzzzzzz
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.
Jason
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.
Rusty
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.
Trevor
Is this bat ok to use in cold weather?
Kev
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.
Jason
Is the Z-CORE XL BBCOR bat top heavy or balanced?
Aiden
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZX) features an end loaded swing weight.
JP
What is the difference between the 2016 MAKO XL and this bat?
Dinger Dan
The 2016 Easton MAKO XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MKL features a two piece composite design while the 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX features a one piece aluminum design. Both bats will feature and end loaded swing weight.
Carter
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?
Bull
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.
Max
Will this bat be legal for 2018 high school baseball season?
benny
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX is legal for high school play in 2018.
Cameron
How balanced is the bat? I am thinking about getting it for my high school season.
Austin pupek
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX is an end loaded bat. If you are looking for a balanced bat, check out the Easton Z-CORE HMX BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16ZA.
Tyler
Is this any different than the Beast X Loaded?
juan
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.
Kyle J.
Is this bat end loaded or balanced?
maleik12powell
The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17ZX will feature an end-loaded weight distribution.
Cameron
What's the difference between this & last year's model because the sound on the 2016 vs the 2017 sounds totally different.
cbaseball
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.
Cameron
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?
alloutbaseball
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.
Cameron
What is the difference between the BB17ZX and the BB17ZH?
keith
While both options will be BBCOR-certified and offer an end-loaded swing weight, their overall construction will differ. The 2017 Easton Z-CORE XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZX) features a one-piece, aluminum construction. The 2017 Easton Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZH) is a two-piece, hybrid bat. This means that the barrel will be aluminum and the handle is composite.
Taylor
Is this made in the USA?
John
No, Easton bats are mostly made in China.
Kyle J.
Does this bat come in both a 32"/29 and a 33"/30? And is this bat notorious for having a small sweet spot?
deb
Yes, we currently have the Easton Z-Core XL (BB17ZX) in a 32" and 33" model. The sweet spot for this bat is fairly standard size for an alloy bat in its price range.

Description

Marucci baseball bats continue to be swung by players at all levels of the game, and for good reason. The F5 series is ready to take the nation by storm. When Marucci released the famous CAT series, they named it after hurricane categories due to the sheer strength of their AZ4X aluminum alloy. Now, Marucci has stuck with the weather references and named this model after another one of nature's most violent storms: an F5 tornado. They did so because of the F5 baseball bats ability to wreak havoc on a field. As a one-piece aluminum alloy construction, this model delivers a traditional, consistent feel with a balanced swing weight for better control through the zone. Inside of the barrel, Marucci utilizes a multi-variable wall design that creates a massive sweet spot with unprecedented durability. They have also applied their proven Ring-free barrel technology that maximizes performance at the plate while guaranteeing zero dead spots. On the other end, a custom micro-perforated soft touch grip decreases negative impact feedback and increases overall comfort. Marucci: Honor The Game!

This Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBF5) features a 2 5/8-inch barrel diameter, a drop 3 length to weight ratio, and the BBCOR certification for high school and collegiate approval. Experience the power of an F5 and buy one of these Marucci baseball bats today with free shipping and a full one (1) year manufacturer's warranty. Don't forget, we're here for you from click to hit!

Right price Adam parent

Pros: Got my son the F5 BBCOR as he's transitioning and loves his 30" Cat7 -8. Have yet to be disappointed with Marucci. Excellent price for a 13 year old who may outgrow his 31" before the spring!

Cons: Compared to the Cat7 -8, the pop and sound are a little different. Could just be the BBCOR though.

Excellent Scott Shelby player

Pros: I was really looking for an entry level bbcor bat for my 14 yr old, Thinking that he wasn't quite ready for a 33/30 and needed a little time with a 31/28 before making the jump. He could not be more pleased with our selection, a lot of pop, great feel, certainly we could have spent a lot more but no way we would have been more pleased!

Cons: Absolutely none!!

Great Bat for the Price GoodSyntax Parent

Pros: Low Cost Great Pop (when barreled up) Well Balanced (slight end-load) Loud Ping There honestly isn't any other bats as good at this price point. Incredible power on the sweet spot. This is effectively a CAT 7 without the ring free knob. There are very few one piece bats featuring variable wall thickness - Marucci CAT 7, Rawlings Velo, Mizuno Generations and Axe Hyperwhip are the only other options that I'm aware of. This is important because it helps to reduce the weight of the barrel (to improve balance) and improves the trampoline effect just off the sweet spot. The result is a more balanced swing versus similar size/weight alloy bats. When you square one up with this bat, the loud ping let's everyone know it. It has a loud, long resonance that gives good, positive feedback to the batter. Another huge plus is Marucci customer service, they've always treated me like a valued customer and are very generous with their warranty policies.

Cons: Hand Ring Small Barrel Loud Ping As a single piece alloy without the special knob, there is nothing to prevent hand ring on mishits. Some like the honest feedback, but no one actually likes the sting shooting up your arm when you hit one off the end of the bat. Second, the barrel is pretty small compared to the current crop of boat oars that are out right now. Many bats (Beast/Ghost, Project 3, CF Zen, Quatro, every Combat ever made) all feature huge barrels, and the F5 isn't anywhere even close. The F5, like the Cat 7/8 feature smaller barrels, similar to the Slugger 5xx, 6xx and 7xx bats. During tee work, or soft toss, the loud ping does tend to get annoying. Not necessarily a deal-breaker, but if you're hitting into a net in the basement/garage, the sound will get tiresome after a while.

Good transition bat. Christopher Dias Parent

Pros: This bat is being used for the transition to bbcor from a drop 5. My son went from and endloaded drop 5 to this bat as it is a balanced feel and easier to swing with the heavier weight. It hits very well when barreled up and has a distinct ping. It has made the transition very simple thus far.

Cons: The only drawback is going from a two piece to a solid aluminum is that there is a little more feedback to the hands when hit off center. Also, for a younger kid making the switch, the handle is a little thicker and not as advantageous to small hands.

Is it alloy or composite?
zpc
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 features a one-piece alloy design.
Jason
How does it compare to the Cat 7 BBCOR?
rrod
The difference is that the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 Connect BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBCC7) utilizes AZ4X alloy which provides increased strength with a slightly higher response rate than the standard alloy of the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBF5). They are both highly reviewed bats and have been performing extremely well for our users.
Tyler
Is the weight balanced or end loaded?
fraggle
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is balanced.
Logan
How does it compare to the Omaha 517?
rob
Both the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 and the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 BBCOR Baseball Bat: BBO5173 are one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. They will compare favorably to one another in terms of feel, performance and durability.
Dan
Is the handle thickness the same as the Marucci one? Also, would the bat quality be good for a college freshman?
Stefan
The handle of the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 will be the same as Marucci One and would be a good bat for a college freshman.
Max
Would you recommend the Marucci F5 or Marucci Cat 7 for an advanced travel ball player in high school?
flyC
The CAT 7 BBCOR bat does receive a little more research and development in its design. Both this 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBF5) and the CAT 7 feature AZ4X alloy. However, the CAT 7 features an optimized barrel design that allows for a bigger sweet spot on the bat. As well, it also features an anti-vibration knob that the F5 does not feature.
Ben
Can a lizard skin help with the vibrations?
Darny
This 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a one-piece alloy bat which is the most conductive for vibrations on contact. Thicker grip tape can help reduce the vibrations felt on the hands. However, if you are truly wanting to avoid negative feedback we would recommend looking at either a hybrid (alloy barrel/composite handle) or a fully composite bat.
Tyler
Which alloy does the F5 feature?
Al
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 features AZ4X aluminum alloy.
Daveron
How is the sound?
go braves
The sound of the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 will be that akin to most alloy barrel bats on the market. They tend to produce your traditional "ping" when hit, where as a composite bat would make a far less acoustic noise on contact.
Tyler
Does this bat have a USA Baseball stamp?
jeff
No, the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat (MCBF5) does not feature the USA Baseball stamp. The heaviest option for a USA Baseball bat is a -5 drop weight.
John
Is this a -3?
steven martinez
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat MCBF5 features a -3 drop weight.
John
What is your best comparable bat to the 2014 Marucci ONE?
i dont sleep at night because of this
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 would be simliar as it is a one alloy. However, the Marucci Cat 7 will be the most similar.
Tori
What is the barrel size on this bat?
jaydon reed
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
Logan
Is there a 33", -5 bat?
Terry
Unfortunately, there will not be a 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 in a -5 model.
Max L
Can you use this bat in a youth league, 9u?
nate
The 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a -3 bat, which is the size used by high school and college players. I would not recommend this model for a player in a 9u league. For your player, I would check out the 2018 Marucci F5 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBF5X10 which will have a -10 drop weight.
Tyler
Is it a -3?
Tyler
Yes, the 2018 Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a -3.
Tori
Does it have a BESR stamp?
Rob
The BESR stamp is the old certification. The Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 features the updated BBCOR .50 stamp. This bat is legal for play in high school and collegiate.
Daveron
Will you guys be restocking the 31/28 version of the bat?
Bill
Unfortunately the Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a closeout model and thus we are not able to restock on sizes not listed. As of this posting, we will not be restocking the 31 inch model.
Cameron
What is the difference between the F5 and CAT 6 GEN2?
AL
The biggest difference is that the Marucci Cat 6 Gen 2 will use Marucci's patented Anti-Vibration Knob technology to significantly reduce vibration on mishits.
Kyle
Do you recommend the Marucci F5 BBCOR 32” for a player beginning on the BBCOR bat level?
Daniel
The Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 is a great one piece alloy BBCOR option. It is a balanced bat for players making their first step into BBCOR play.
Daveron
What dose F5 mean?
D.P.
F5 is simply the name Marucci chose for this bat. We are not aware of anything else it might stand for or mean. You can try contacting Marucci for more information.
Kyle

The Marucci F5 BBCOR Baseball Bat: MCBF5 cannot be used in JUCO play in 2020.
