Description

Easton ADV Hype -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL22HYP8

If you've been a fan of Easton composite bats in the past, then step up to the dish with a Hype in hand this upcoming season!

Bat Benefits

Easton has bolstered this all-composite bat with a few new updates. (1) They have updated their composite material that will be featured on this signature bat. This bat has Easton's Thermo Composite Technology (similar to the TCT Material that Easton used in the past). And they are saying that this material should allow for an incredibly large barrel & sweet spot to exist while also being very lightweight. (2) The connection point on this bat has been revised to what will now be known as the ConneXion Max connector piece. This connector piece will make the bat have a stiff feel when hitting a baseball and due to there being extra Nitrocell Foam added to the connection piece, it should do an incredible job of limiting the vibration that gets down to a player's hands on a miss-hit. (3) Lastly, the handle is built with the new Pro-Stiff Carbon technology. This handle should feel incredibly solid in a batter's hands and Easton believes that top-notch hitters will really enjoy the feel it produces.

A drop 8 size is great for 11-13-year-old players that have moved away from using the lighter sizes of bats. Easton is still designing this bat to feel balanced though and all types of hitters should be able to use it (contact and power hitters).

Warranty

Easton knows that they have a reputation for making some of the highest-performing bats in the game. And they also know that since their reputation is built on creating high-quality baseball bats, they have to deliver on the warranty side as well. Due to that knowledge, Easton extends a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty on this bat. If you buy this bat from us and feel as though a warranty issue has arisen on the bat within 12 months of the purchase date, please let our Bat Experts know. Our Experts are trained in product and warranty knowledge and will be happy to get you all the information and materials needed to begin a warranty replacement process with Easton.

Feedback from my 10u son Tim P. Parent

Pros: Ball jumps when you find the sweet spot, although sweet spot isn't as big as his Cat X. Also this bat is pretty loud which he likes as well. Price was right, so we purchased it to be used as his off season training bat.

Cons: Handle is very thin and no taper, which probably gives him some vibration in his hands. Bat also has a very heavy swing weight.

Son loves it. 13u player Ramon I. Parent

Pros: This thing pops right outta the wrapper. My son loved it and forgot about his other bats, Cat9 and Victus Nox, right after using this in his first game. Also this bat is pretty loud and combined with the pop…mentally , confidence is up. He definitely recommends it.

Cons: My son hasn’t given me any negative reviews outside of wanting the 2023 version…which negatively impacts my pockets. Lol seriously, my son has no negative feedback.

Great bay for price. JC Parent

Pros: My son has not had a single complaint this bat, he’s hit it everywhere & it’s never ringed his hands up. It doesn’t have as much pop as his ghost or even his Cat 9 Connect - but he said the feel of it is great.

Cons: Not as much pop as advertised.

Great bat at a great price. Jim Coach

Pros: After 2 days: Plenty of pop with little break-in so far. My son loves it as he hit his first dinger during BP today. No stingers reported thus far. Great price, probably due to the Hype Fire being released. My son has used both now and favors this model.

Cons: None so far.

Not Great Paul Coach

Pros: The bat is very light and swings fast. The barrel is durable. When hitting the sweet spot, feels good.

Cons: This is end-loaded. If you hit a ball off any part of the bat other than the sweet spot, it hurts your hands a lot. Did not notice significant pop out of the box. Feels hollow when hitting a ball, not solid. Exit speed not great. My 13 yr old is 5'9" 160 pounds. He swings a 32. He is coming from a USA Louisville Slugger all composite bat. That bat has a balanced feel, no sting, and the ball just flies off the barrel. I hit with this Easton as well and can confirm it is not a good feel. I don't think a USA composite bat should outperform a USSSA composite bat in terms of pop, distance, speed, and feel. But that is the case with this bat. In my opinion, this is an entry-level USSSA composite bat. You get what you pay for.

Super Happy With this Bat Adan Parent

Pros: Hot out of the wrapper. Large sweet spot. This is our son's first end loaded bat and no issues adapting to it. All the kids have the Hypefire but for a lot less you can have the same (or better) pop.

Cons: None yet- can't really speak to durability as only had a week.
