Pros: Has so much pop. I started off the season with no homeruns in my life. At first I was using the 2014 easton xl3. Now I've already hit 9 homeruns. I am currently on the U11 team and still working on getting better.
Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B
Nice Grip, big barrel, decent pop
It does have a huge sweet spot and the ball does have a higher velocity coming off the bat
Pros: Has so much pop. I started off the season with no homeruns in my life. At first I was using the 2014 easton xl3. Now I've already hit 9 homeruns. I am currently on the U11 team and still working on getting better.
Pros: I didn't use it in a game yet but during BP I've hit a lot of home runs and just hard hit balls.
Pros: SOOOO much pop sweet graphics and am using it for upcoming season
Cons: Price but worth every penny
Pros: With the 2 3/4 inch barrel you just can't miss the ball. With the TCT thermo composite, the ball trampolines off the bat with an awesome sound. I can't say enough about the diamond grip. It feels fantastic. Another great feature is the light swing weight. This truly is the lightest bat with the biggest barrel. I highly recommend this bat to everyone, contact and power hitters.
Cons: My dad made me pay half!! :)
Pros: i love this bat it has great pop! i never got a bat so great i wish this bat came out sooner i recommend this bat to everyone
Pros: Amazing grip and insane pop i would recommend this all the way. it feels heavy in hand but when you swing it it is insanely light and it evens out.BUY THIS BAT! cost worth it! My first composite and probs the best of all my bats.
Cons: COST BUT WORTH IT
Pros: Bat has tons of pop with a noticeably larger than normal sweet spot. Son who is playing 10U this year is swinging the 29/19 and absolutely loves it.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Nice Grip, big barrel, decent pop
Cons: The Easton marketing machine strikes. Go have your Mako weighed. Your bat is listed as a drop 10 bat, but you will find that it is actually drop 8. Drop 8! We had 6 kids swing Makos on our team last year and we weighed all 6 bats. Every single one was drop 8 instead of drop 10. While our offensive numbers improved in average and OBP, our power numbers dropped. We came to the conclusion that 1/2 our team was swinging a bat that was heavier than advertised giving them less bat speed than what the kids had swung in prior years. This is only the OPINION of me and my coaching staff. It is noteworthy that a 30 inch bat actually weighs 22oz instead of the advertised 20oz., however. Something for consideration when choosing this bat.
Pros: great bat! big sweet spot you can hit on the handle and still hit it a long ways
Cons: nothing at all
Pros: It does have a huge sweet spot and the ball does have a higher velocity coming off the bat. Inside pitches are easier to handle with the larger sweet spot.
Cons: The bat is definetly end loaded. There is a significant bat lag through the zone for my 9 year old who plays 10Major. He was using the same length/weight Marucci for the last 2 years as the MAKO. The MAKO is completely different. If it wasnt a gift would not buy it. The kids seem to rely on the technology of the bat instead of fundamentals with this bat.
Pros: Has tons of pop, A major sweetspot balls are just flying off the bat. I'm slower than I was last year and the bases have got moves up 10 feet I never hit a triple in our 40 games last year, I've hit two in the first 6 games
Cons: Everyone on my team wants to use it
Cons: - expensive - no pop i would recomend the louivlle slugger xenoa. its cheper b.its hot right out of the wrapper c. slugger know what works and what doesn't
Pros: Huge Barrel. The 2 3/4" Barrel seems like it strectchs forever. Really great pop, and great feel when they hit the sweet spot.
Cons: Too Heavy!! I bought a 28/18, and the MAKO is considerably heavier than 4 other 28/18 I compared it to, include 2 Eastons. I haven't weighed it, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was closer to 21 oz, than 18 oz. Still a great bat, but it should be listed a drop 8. $300 spent just so the kids can use it as a weighted warmup bat.
Pros: this bat is amazing and has great pop. it sounds great and has a fast swing weight. anywhere you hit it it just flies off the bat. ive hit bp with it and hit a lot of home runs. i highly recommend this bat.
Cons: everyone wants to use it but im fine with that.
Pros: Amazing Pop, this bat makes the ball rocket off of it. From the 1st swings you can tell a difference. The kids love it and it helps add confidence to their approach.
Cons: The price, but you pay for what you get.
Pros: has great pop
Cons: a kid on our te baught it and it busted in 2 weeks
Pros: My Son loves it, fast through the zone, great pop and he's not mention any vibration. My Son said "it the best bat he's ever had"
Cons: As of yet, there are no Cons and lets see about durable it is.
Pros: My Son is 12U and loves this bat. - Good Price compared to Dicks and Sports Authority - Great weight ratio
Cons: - These bats aren't cheap even at a discount
Pros: durable with huge sweet spot.
Cons: average pop for the price. feels heavier than 18 oz. overpriced bat.
Pros: Good pop, well balanced. I weighed the bat. It is a drop 10. I don't know what scale was used by the reviewer that says it is heavier, but on two different scales that I used, the bat weighs exactly 20 ounces. I bought the 30 -10. My 9 year old lefty weighs 75 lbs and he loves it!!
Cons: Non so far
Pros: Every bad comment about the bat breaking is because yellow dimple balls are bad for this bat and all of easton composites if it is over weghted im fine with that more power for me get a 30 20 Great Bat
Pros: This is truly the best bat I've ever swung and I can't wait to get the 2016 mako this bat was crazy good I went 9 for 10 in the first turnement I had the bat. I truly recommend this bat for everyone. The ball flies off the bat with a composite pop the price was very worth it. I LOVE THIS BAT #GO MAKO
Cons: When you get on base and you drop your bat the grip gets dirty and the dirt stays on the bat. When you spit on it, it restores the grip it only works for a couple of times then the grip does not work. I switched to a lizard skin baseball grip it was truly worth the price and it worked all the time dirty or not.
Pros: ball come off fast
Cons: little expensive
Pros: This bat is the best for me and for some of my teammates.
Pros: Decent feel
Cons: Bought this bat for my son. He likes the pop and feel. But the weight is off. I went and weighted it on a accurate certified scale. The bat label says it is 20 ounces. I weighed it, and it weighs about 21.6 ounces. I called Easton, and the Customer Service rep told me that I could send it back, but there was no guarantee that I could get a bat back that was any different. He said he did not not specs, but that maybe plus or minus 2 ounces sounded about right to him. This is consistent with what I have been finding I have weighed 5 Easton bats (2015/2016 vintage), and ALL are over weight by 1.6 ounces to 2.25 ounces. Eastons' technology may be pretty good, but their Manufacturing Procedures, and Quality Assurance Procedures are sub-standard. I would classify them as "Industrial" grade. Certainly not High Precision. Not worthy of the cost. If you like the swing fine. But be very careful about picking a an Easton product based on weight. I won't be buying another Easton.
Pros: Get what you pay for! Good quality very durable great pop this is the 2nd Mako I have got for my son who is now a 10u travel ball player. He is a smaller kid with quick bat speed. He is more of a contact hitter with a little power. He continues to hit line drives or if it's a grounder it's unfieldable. He has hit several bombs to the fence which is about 200- 220 ft. The Mako is the truth!
Pros: Easton quality Won't crack
Cons: Not as much pop as other bats on the market Definitely heavier than advertised
Pros: This bat is the best bat that I have ever owned. This bat is very durable, has a great pop, has good grip, sounds and looks nice, and when you miss hit the bat does not sting. I would highly recommend getting this bat.
Cons: Not really anything, although it may be a bit pricey this bat is worth every penny.
Pros: Has a great pop and sound, also has a nice grip.
Cons: Not the most durable bat, it vibrates a little too much, but is still a nice bat to have.
Pros: the bat took me from hitting ground ball strait at the infielders to line drives to the gap every time
Cons: i haven't had eny yet
Pros: Great bat. Pop, balanced, very nice.
Cons: The bats are actually both drop -8. I weighed both bats on two different scales. I have 12u and 10u travel team boys. As an aside, I have weighed other bats from Easton which are closer to what they advertise. However, Easton stands behind their products and if you are within the 1 year warranty, you can return it for a replacement.
Pros: Good pop.. I hit it into the net a bit when we got it and the ball really jumps off it.
Cons: When I let my 6 year old have it, (27/17) He's 4'4" and weighs in around 65 lbs. He went from an S3 that weighs 17.6 oz to this and the first time he used it, he just couldn't get it around. I never thought it could be that far off until I weighed it. 20.0 oz even on 2 different scales.
Pros: Good look and decent feel. Pop was average to start but not what we expected coming from Easton. We thought it would get better as we broke the bat in. Not a lot of vibration. Sound was good. Grip was solid.
Cons: My son went from a 31 inch, 29 ounce drop 13 (Demarini/Voodoo; Little League) to the Easton Mako (white & orange), 27 inch, 17 ounce drop 10. Several experts within his travel organization recommended the size change. They talked us into going with a shorter, lighter bat to try and eliminate his barrel from dropping. We bought the Easton Mako. My son worked hard all season to fix this. Needless to say it was naturally happening but got better to the point that it was only dropping a couple of inches opposed to 10-12 when he originally started swinging the Demarini. I spoke with several people within the organization that mentioned that the bat could be "weighted" wrong and that Easton was famous for that. I laughed thinking, how could that be if they weighed there bats before they send them out to meet each specification. I had the bat weighed by three people and it weight 19.929 ounces. 2.929 heavier than what is was supposed to be. We just switched back to Demarini.
Pros: Havent used it yet. will give an official review pending outcome, if my kid can even hold the bat up during bat sizing test. He is 6
Cons: Purchased 27/17. Bat weighs 19.4.
Pros: Even though I only owned this bat for 1 year, it allowed me to hit the ball harder and farther than any other bat. It has great pop and speed too, allowing me to quickly turn on inside pitches and hit faster pitchers. I also went to try the 2016 mako and I believe that the 2015 model is more durable and can me used in more ways than just the 2016 model with a bunch of pop.
Pros: Nice bat with good pop.
Cons: It is not a drop 10 as advertised. Bat weighs more around a drop 8 and feels more end loaded than balanced as described. Again its a nice bat just know what your getting.

What year is this bat?
The Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B is a 2015 model.
My son is 11 years old, 5'1" and weighs 138 lbs. He has been hitting with your Easton SL14MK10B (30", 20oz) big barrel. Does this bat loose its "pop" after a while? How long do they last? Also, would moving up to the 31/20 be good?
All bats will lose their "pop" at some point but there is no way to determine just how many hits any one particular bat will have in it. Typically, most bats will either dent (alloy) or crack (composite) making it easy on the consumer to know that a new bat is needing to be ordered. As for moving up to a 31/20, based on his height and weight this would be advised for the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B; would only suggest staying with the current 30/20 model if he is having issues getting the barrel head through the zone with the 20 ounce weight.
My son is 6 years old, is 45" and weighs 46 lbs. What's a good bat for him? Size?
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would recommend getting this Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) in the 27" length. As long as you feel that your player can handle the 17 oz weight of the 27" model, I would recommend that size option of this bat. If your player can handle the size option recommended, then I think this will be an excellent bat for him.
My son is 11, 5'2" and weighs about 90 pounds. What size would you recommend?
For a player of his size, I would suggest getting the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B in the 30" 20 oz. size.
My son is 59" and 98 lbs. What size is right?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B in a 30 inch 20 ounce model.
My player is 4'5", 63 lbs, and 10 years old. What size bat do you recommended?
Based on your players height and weight I would suggest a 29" Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B).
My son is 5'4" and weighs about 102 pounds. What bat is best for him?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B in a 31 inch 21 ounce model.
My player is 12 years old, 4'10" and 70+ pounds. I am between the 2015 S1 (SL15S110) and the 2015 Mako (SL15MK10B). You mention in these posts that the MAKO has a longer sweet spot for the barrel. How much longer before it tapers towards the handle?
Based upon your player's height and weight, we would make a general recommendation of getting a Senior League/Youth Big Barrel bat with a 30" length. As long as your player can handle the 20 oz weight, I would recommend either option of the bats being considered in the 30" length. When deciding between the bats you'll need to decide if you want the 2 5/8" barrel on the S1 or the 2 3/4" barrel on this Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B). Unfortunately, I would not be able to give the exact measurements on how much longer the barrel length will be on the MAKO, but it will be longer overall when compared to the S1 (bigger barrel length = more sweet spot).
My son is 8 and he is 55" and weighs 70 lbs. Which bat do you think would be best for him and what length/weight?
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would recommend using a 31" Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B.
My son will be 10 in April. He is 52" and weighs 67 lbs. He is a contact hitter. Last year he used a 27/17 Easton S3 (2-year old black/yellow model) and made consistent contact. I'm looking at the 2015 Easton S3, Easton MAKO, and Combat Portent G4. Which bat do you think would be best for him and what length/weight?
Between all the bats being considered, if you are looking for the bat with the highest number of quality reviews at JustBats, I would recommend this Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B). For your player's size, I think a 28"/18 oz model will be best for him.
Does this bat vibrate more or less than others?
The Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) is a two-piece bat which is designed to cut down on vibration compared to most one-piece bats.
My son will turn 8 on May 1st and is 4'2" and roughly 65 lbs. What size bat do you recommend? He normally swings a 28 in Little League, but I was wondering if we should size down for big barrel with less drop.
Based on his height and weight, I would suggest a 28" model in the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B. However, if you feel that his bat speed will slow down or he will not be able to handle the weight then you could certainly drop down an inch.
My son is 5'9" and around 140 lbs. What size Easton MAKO SL Bat would you recommend? Or would you recommend something else? Last year he used the 32 in 22 oz SL14310, but it dented so need to replace it. We live in Boston area, early season can be a bit cool. He bats 3rd and is a solid hitter - getting on base as well as hitting home runs.
Based on your son's height and weight, I would recommend that he swing a 33" bat. As for the weight, I would base that on how well he currently swings the 22 oz bat. If he swings that well with good bat speed, then he would be able to increase the weight of the bat. The extra ounces in the bat will help put more mass behind the baseball, thus creating more power. I think the 2016 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16MK10 would be a great option. We typically do not recommend using any bats (alloy or composite) in temperatures less than 60 degrees. However, we understand that in certain parts of the country it is inevitable, so I would just recommend as much limited use as possible on your bat in these temperatures.
How long will it take to ship?
If the Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat: SL15MK10B is ordered during the week prior to 8 PM CST it would ship out the same day. Typically through UPS, our customers receive their package(s) within 2-3 business days if they elect the free shipping option that is guaranteed within 5 business days.

My son is a 10 year old and he is starting to play on an 11U travel team. He is a solid hitter with some power on occasion. He is 5 foot 1 and weighs about 105 pounds. I was looking at the Mako -10 30 inch 20 ounce 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter bat for him. Does this sound like a good fit?
The 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) would be a nice option for his style of hitting. While the 30 inch model may work, we would more typically suggest a 31 inch size.
My son is 8, weighs 82 lbs., and is 4'8" tall. I am looking at the (SL15MK10B) bat. What size do you recommend?
For a player of that size, I would suggest going with the 29" model of the 2015 Easton MAKO (SL15MK10B).
My son is about 4 feet tall and weighs about 60 pounds. He just started a travel ball coach pitch league. He has been using a Combat Portent 27 inch 17 ounce youth bat. I was looking at getting him a Mako SL. What size do you recommend? He is an above average hitter.
Based on height and weight, we would think that a 27 inch 17 ounce size of the 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) would be a good fit for your player.
My son is currently using the MAKO 30" 19 oz. What size would you recommend? He is 11 and 85 lbs.
As a general rule of thumb, we recommend going up an inch and an ounce when sizing up for bats. Since the 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) is a Big Barrel bat and the MAKO that he has used previously was a Youth option, the sizing will truly be preferential. If he is comfortable going up the extra inch as well as the two ounces, the 31" 21 oz. should be ok. If he struggled with the 30" 19 oz. Youth MAKO, I would recommend staying with a 30" 20 oz. size instead. For more information on sizing, you can check out our Bat Coach: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
I'm in a 13-15 year old Babe Ruth league. What Easton MAKO bat should I get for my league!

For his size we would recommend a 31" in the 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B). The MAKO is going to be a balanced two piece composite, while the RIP-IT is a balanced one piece alloy. Either of these bats are great options for your player.
My grandson is 4'8" tall and weighs 82 lbs. He is asking me for a 31" bat and currently uses 30" 19 oz., What size would you recommend?
The bat coach feature on our website is recommending that someone your grandson's age uses a 29-30" bat, so that 31" 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) may be a little long for him. However, if he is having no trouble swinging the 30" then it is possible that he could be ready to move up to the 31".
My son is 4'5" and 82 lbs. What size and weight would you recommend?
Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 29" 19 oz model in the 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B).
Is this bat allowed in Junior League baseball?
It is not. The 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) is not approved for play in the Junior League division of Little League baseball because of two factors. This bat has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter which is not allowed in Little League baseball play. And this MAKO has a composite barrel. In the division that allow the use of a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, you are not allowed to use a composite model unless it is a BBCOR certified bat. For most players, this restricts you to using big barrel bats with alloy hitting surfaces because BBCOR bats are much heavier with their -3 length to weight ratio.
My son is considered a power hitter. He's strong big kid. I am looking at getting a new bat. It was recommended I look for a end-weighted bat. He has been using a Combat Portent and had good success, just the pop is gone. Is this bat a good recommendation? I was also considering the 2015 COMBAT Portent G3 -8. What bat would you recommend?
Based on the type of hitter your son is, we would recommend the 2015 COMBAT Portent G3 (PG3SL108) over the 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B). The COMBAT is a one-piece bat, which is more preferred for power hitters.
What is the difference between the SL15MK10B and the SL14MK10B? My son is 9, 4'11 and weighs 105 lbs. What is the right size I should get for him? He swung the original MAKO last year 28-17 2 1/4 barrel.
The 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) and the (SL14MK10B) are the same bat. The only difference between the two is the cosmetic appearance. Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 30" model.
How does this bat compare to the DeMarini CF6?
The 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) and the DeMarini CF6 are both very comparable bats. They both feature two-piece fully composite designs with balanced swing weights. The main differences between the bats is the D-Fusion handle featured on the CF6 and the extended barrel on the MAKO. The D-Fusion handle helps eliminate vibration on balls that are not squared up. The MAKO has a bigger 2 3/4" barrel diameter and an overall longer barrel that gives the bat a massive sweet spot.
Where does the pop come from?
The "pop" on the 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) is actually not a technical term. The MAKO will feature a large sweet spot, but most of it's performance will be due to the TCT Thermo Composite construction.

Is there a break-in period on the MAKO or is it as good as it gets right out of the box?
The 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) is a two-piece full TCT Thermo Composite. The general rule of thumb with composite bats is that they are not hot right of the box and do require a break in period. I recommend taking 150-200 swings playing soft toss or off a tee using real baseballs. Begin swinging at 40% power and work your way up to full strength as you get closer to 200 swings. Itâ€™s also important to rotate the bat Â¼â€ after each swing to ensure that you get complete barrel coverage.

My son is really torn between the 2015 Mako Senior League bat and the 2015 S1. He is 8 and is using the new Mako Torq and is killing the ball. We were wanting to get him a big barrel bat for his travel team but we just can't decide. I love the Mako but he likes them both but leans toward the S1 for how it looks I think.
Both the 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) and the 2015 Easton S1 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S110) are nice options. The MAKO has a bigger barrel diameter and longer barrel length for a larger sweet spot but the S1 will be slightly better balanced making it feel lighter. Preference between the two would come down to what feature you value more.

The 2015 Easton MAKO Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15MK10B) will not be available in a -5. The MAKO series will feel much more balanced compared to the XL-Series.
