Pros: My son plays 11u elite ball he is about 5'4" and weight 130lbs, I bought him the 32/23 Mako and he loves it. The first batting practice he used it he hit one off the fence and one over the fence. All the kids on the team were checking out the bat after practice.

Cons: None yet, just used it for one practice so far.

I am confused on why this bat isn't okay for Juniors Little League and why it would require a BBCOR rating? Isn't BBCOR for high school and college and the bats have a -3 weight ratio? Kids in this league are 13-14 and they aren't using that size yet. My son needs a 31" with a 2 5/8" barrel with a -9 ratio. What bat do you suggest?

Composite barrel bats have to be BBCOR certified according to Little League Rules. They do not have to use a BBCOR bat if it has an alloy barrel. Little League does not have a limit on the drop. Players can use any drop as long as it has an alloy barrel. However, if you are searching for a -9 bat, the 2014 Easton XL3 (SL14X39) is a great option.

85451

I'm looking for a bat for my son. He plays in a Georgia Dizzy Dean lean. All 1.15 bats are legal at his level and all barrel sizes are legal. He is 4.2 82lbs. He hits for power in our minor league field. Is this Mako the one I should be looking for or the junior version?

The Jr Big Barrell is for tee ball and coach pitch. I would recommend the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) for your situation.

85049

What is the difference between the MAKO that is a 2 3/4" Senior League bat and the 2 5/8" barrel bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) and the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MKB) both use the same composite materials. The barrel size and the drop are the only differences between the two bats.

84932

Is this bat legal for Dixie Ozone Division 11-12 year olds?

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League meets all the requirements for Dixie 'O' Zone Division and is legal for play. It features the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp and has a 2 5/8" barrel.

84603

Is this bat legal for Dixie Youth Ranger division?

This 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League bat is not approved for Dixie Baseball. Any bat that has a 2 5/8" composite barrel must be a BBCOR certified model with a -3 length to weight ratio.

84492

What size is legal for travel ball? Not sure if it changed.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) is approved for play in USSSA. USSSA allows the 2 5/8" and 2 3/4" barrel as long as the bat is stamped on the taper with the "USSSA BPF 1.15."

84201

I'm 5'6" and weigh 115 lbs. What size bat should I get?

Based on your height and weight we recommend a 31" 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9).

84198

My 12 year old son is 5 foot 8 and 160 pounds. He is more of a power hitter. I don't want to go too end loaded and lose too much swing speed. I am seeing all the hype on the Easton MAKO and the DeMarini CF6. Is either of these a good choice for him? Would there be a better option since these two are pretty balanced? Does either deliver enough mass for the power hitter?

Answer Question

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 (DXCFR) are both quality, two piece composite bats. These bats would be capable of batted ball speeds that would benefit a power hitter. In general, power hitters tend to prefer a stiffer flex that a one piece design would provide. Two piece designs offer more flex that can create control problems for players who generate higher bat head speeds.

84155

When do you think you will have the 31" model back in stock?

We do not have an exact arrival date for the 31" model 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League. Typically, out of stock items take 2-4 weeks to be back in stock.

My son, who is 5ft tall and weighs 90 lbs, is moving up to Bronco this Spring. I recently purchased a 2014 Easton MAKO: YB14MK Youth 31" 20oz for him. He's been practicing with it and loves it. Would like to get him a wide barrel, 2 5/8" diameter. What model do you recommend for this switch? Should we go with the shorter but heavier 30" 21oz model?

We would actually recommend using the 30" in the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League. However, if he is comfortable with a 31" then you can certainly stick with that.

83935

What leagues are this bat legal for? Please list them.

The 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MK9 is legal in USSSA 14U, Pony League and travel leagues. There are some local leagues that allow 2 5/8" composite barrels as well. We always recommend checking with your local league official for exact rules in your league.

83543

Is this bat eligible for Little League Junior's Division for 13-14 year olds?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MK9 Senior League would not be legal for the Junior Division of Little League. This division requires all composite barreled bats to be certified for BBCOR.

83074

I am 12 years old, and I am in a PONY baseball league. I am wondering if this bat would work for me.

The 2014 Easton MAKO: (SL14MK9) Senior League bat is approved for play in PONY baseball with the 2 5/8" barrel diameter. If you like a very balanced two-piece bat, it's tough to find a better bat than the MAKO.

83060

My son is using a 29" 19 oz Easton S3. We are looking at the MAKO -9. What would you recommend? He is 5' 80 lbs and is the lead off hitter.

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 30" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League.

82803

Is the MAKO SL14MK9 USSSA approved? My son is 10U weighs 105 lbs. 4'8" and #3 hitter. What size would you recommend? -9 or -10? 30" or 31". He is currently swinging a CF5 -10 30" 20 oz.

The 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) is USSSA approved. Based on his height and weight we recommend a 30" bat. If he has quick bat speed, the -9 would be a great option.

82789

my daughtet is 9 years old she is 4 11 and 80 lbs what size bat would be the best for her.

Given your daughters height and weight, I would suggest a 31" softball bat. The weight you should use is based off personal preference but a -10 or -12 would be common options for that size.

82733

Is the barrel of the -9 MAKO longer than the -10 MAKO?

Yes. In a side-by-side comparison between the 2014 Easton MAKO: (SL14MK9) Senior League and (SL14MKB) in the same length, the (SL14MK9) has a slightly longer barrel. The difference is approximately 1/4", and I wouldn't consider that a major difference in the sweet spot sizes they offer.

82668

My son is 5'0 and 88 lbs. What size bat should he using?

He should be swinging a 30" 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MK9 Senior League bat. If the 30" 21 oz. is too heavy try a 30" 20 oz. -10.

82254

My son is 13, 5'6" and 110 lbs. What size and weight should he get? He is also more of a contact hitter rather that a power hitter.

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 31" 22 ozmodel in the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League.

82137

According to Babe Ruth rules it looks like composite barrel bats must have the bbcor .50 stamp on it. Does the USSSA 1.15 stamp BPF make it legal?

The 2014 Easton Mako would be not be legal in Babe Ruth leagues since it does not have the BBCOR .50 BPF stamp. Here are the requirements a composite bat would need to meet in order to be legal for Babe Ruth play. http://www.justbats.com/bat-resource-guide/frequently-asked-questions/adult/

My son is going to be a U13 player. He loves his Easton S2. He is 5' 8" and 131 pounds. What length should I get him? Also, will he do well with this as he is both a contact and power hitter?

For a player his size, we recommend the 32" model of the 2014 Easton MAKO: (SL14MK9) Senior League. The MAKO is the most balanced bat in the Easton product line and will help him achieve higher swing speeds. This design is a great option for a contact hitter who can occasionally hit for power. If he liked the S2, the MAKO should be a solid choice that offers a lighter swing weight and larger sweet spot.

81481

My son currently uses a 27" 17 oz. -10 Easton Rival. We are trying to decide between the S1 or MAKO as well as the length. One coach says 28 but another coach says 29. My son is 4'6" and weighs about 70 lbs. What length and what are your opinions on the bats?

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 29" bat. The Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) Senior League is a two-piece fully composite bat with a balanced swing weight. The MAKO has Easton's new TCT Thermo Composite for a massive sweet spot and faster swing speeds. The 2014 Easton S1 (SL14S110) Senior League is a two-piece fully composite design with a balanced swing weight. It has an IMX composite barrel and a SIC black carbon composite handle.

New technology 2014 . Obviously a better value to by 2013. With that in mind how would the new MAKO compare to the S1 as far as pop?

The 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MK9 Senior League and the Easton S1 both use top of the line composite materials, for great pop. The TCT Thermo Composite used in the MAKO allows for a bigger sweet spot, with a balanced feel.
