What is the MOI for this bat? How does it compare to that of the Mako XL or the Torq XL?

Easton only provides the MOI for BBCOR bats. The Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 is a one piece bat and will swing a little heavier than the Mako XL and the Torq XL.

Is this bat legal in both Nations and USSSA?

The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 will feature the USSSA bat stamp as well as BPF 1.15. As for use in Nations games, if you are needing a bat for 14U then the bat must be either -5 or -3 (thus it would not be legal since the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 is a drop -8). For 13U and below there are no bat restrictions. All high school divisions must use a BBCOR certified bat.

How does the 2016 XL3 compare with the 2015 XL3?

This 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X38) will differ from the 2015 XL3 in regard to cosmetics and drop weight (the 2015 was a -9 model and this bat is a -8 model). However, besides those differences, the bats will be pretty much the same. Both bats feature HMX alloy and an end-loaded swing weight.

My son is transitioning from a -10 to a -8 this year. Would this be a good -8 bat to go with?

Given that the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 has an end loaded feel, it may make the transition from a -10 to a -8 a bit more challenging if he has not swung an end loaded bat previously.

My son has the 2015 XL3 30 inch 21 ounce -9. Is there any difference between the 2016 XL3 and the Orange 2015 XL3?

The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL16X38) has a -8 length to weight ratio so it is a bit heavier drop weight than what was featured on the 2015 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15X39).

That's confidence in your team to give everything to the game - confidence in yourself to get the job done - and unquestioning confidence in your equipment.

All of the characteristics that define the archetype of a "Power Hitter" can be found in the new Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 - 1.) The XL3 is forged from HMX (Hyperlite Matrix) Alloy for an expanded sweet spot and tremendous trampoline effect. 2.)

Wrap those features up with an extra-long barrel profile, perfectly-powerful end loaded swing weight, and new HYPERSKIN Performance Grip for supreme control, and there's not one inch of the plate that's out of your Hot Zone.
