Pros: I'm 13 and my hitting coach let me demo this bat at my lesson. It has amazing pop right out of the wrapper and has a great feel to it. The balls were hitting the back wall of the tunnel every time. There was a noticeable difference. I didn't purchase this bat but I definitely would have if I could! I currently use an Easton Mako (-11) and I have to say I prefer the Stealth.
Pros: My daughter just got this bat over the weekend, and immediately put it to use in a tourney. This is a true -10 balanced bat as she hit a triple, double and some hard grounders. She has been using a -11 for the last few years as she stayed away from -10 bats as most felt end loaded. Thanks to Easton for developing this bat.
Pros: Great Pop, and nice even weight. My daughter has been playing with a 32" drop 13 bat, (she's 5'4" 120 lbs) and could not put that light bat down as she had gotten so used to the light bat and getting it around with ease. The Stealth is heavier - but feels the same to her as it is very nicely weighted. She has more expensive bats - but this is her favorite now, because she is hitting better!

Do y'all have this bat in a 31" 21oz option?

What is the difference between the Easton 2016 Stealth Retro vs the 2018 Stealth Flex?
Asked by Karl
This Easton Stealth Retro Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP16SSR3B) will have the same essential design as the 2017 Easton Stealth Flex -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP17SF10). Both bats are two-piece, all-composite bats with balanced swing feels. The one difference will be the composite material used for each bat. This Retro bat uses IMX composite material while the Stealth Flex uses TCT Thermo Composite material. (The Stealth Retro claims that the Nanotube technology makes the bat lighter in its feel, but I think the feels between the bats should be any different).
My daughter is 14 and I have no clue what type of bat she needs. She is 5'2" tall and weighs about 125 pounds. She has been playing softball for two seasons.
Asked by Brooke
Based off the information you have provided, I would like to suggest a 32 inch bat. We have the Easton Stealth Retro Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP16SSR3B available in that size. If you would like a lighter bat with the same length, I would recommend the 2017 Easton Stealth Flex -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17SF11 in a 32 inch and 21 ounce.
Will this be a good bat for hitting and slapping?
Asked by Sjpickering

This 2016 Easton Stealth Retro Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP16SSR3B) will come with a two-piece, all-composite design just like the FP16MK11.
