What do you think about the 2014 Easton MAKO: SL14MK9 Senior League?
Have A Question?
Ask our community of experts and receive an answer within 24 hours.Ask Question
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?
Asked by ORea on Mar 27, 2014
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.

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?
Asked by Thomas (Dizzy Dean) on Mar 12, 2014
The Jr Big Barrell is for tee ball and coach pitch. I would recommend the 2014 Easton MAKO (SL14MK9) for your situation.

Asked by Matty on Feb 24, 2014

· Feb 24, 2014
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?
Asked by Nichojr on Feb 24, 2014Answer 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.

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?
Asked by baseballmom88 on Feb 23, 2014
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.

Is the barrel of the -9 MAKO longer than the -10 MAKO?
Asked by Coach Zack on Feb 03, 2014
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.

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?
Asked by kel on Jan 14, 2014
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.
