by Dave - Dec 17, 2013

Pros: Got to demo this bat for a game this fall with my high-school, has the pop and barrel size/shape of the XL1 but is as balanced if not more so than the S1. This combination helps a lot especially as a smaller player to hit balls more effectively and harder.

Cons: Long break in period, incredibly expensive

Pros: This is extremely balanced and has a decent sized sweet spot

Cons: Stung my hands on a few inside pitches Doesn't have as good pop as i thought it would for $449 Not worth the money... The s3 is just as good save your money buy a different bat!

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by Dude from the west coast - Nov 17, 2013

Pros: i am able to get this bat through the plate faster then the cf6. unlike the cf6 i can get a little more pop out of the bat because of the bat speed i get from it i make better contact then i have and have been getting the most power then ever before. I was able to swing and try this bat out at a bat wars and this bat was easily my favorite out of the Demarrini bats as well and Combat and Marrucci bats.

Cons: the price is very high but so far it has been 100% worth it my only advice is test it out before buying make sure you like it and it works for you everyone has different abilitys.

by MakoMan12 - Sep 24, 2013

Pros: This bat is just simply great. It is a mixture of the S1 and the Xl1 it's as light if not lighter than the CF5 the barrel is massive and the sweet spot is huge it has a great feel and Easton has just made bat of the year.

Cons: Price and They sell out fast for people who do not already own one

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by Mark - Oct 01, 2013

Pros: Color Sound I bought this bat for my son and he seems to really like it he used an Easton XL2 -8 in the spring as a 13 year old so I wanted to get him use to swinging something a little heavier in the fall. We went through about 100+ swings of soft toss the night he got it and it has a cool sound to it. He use it in a game last night and went 3for3 one ball hit the fence on a line drive. Did I see a $450 difference in the way the ball jumps off this bat compared to the XL2? No.. I will write another review after he uses it a little longer.

Cons: Price

by Anthony - Oct 01, 2013

Pros: My son just started swinging a drop 3 so I thought he would struggle at the plate. Going from a -9 to a -3 is a big difference but he truly raked with the Mako. He pulled his first two hits and held his own. Based on his feedback, this bat is well balanced with tons of pop out of the wrapper.

Cons: None

by Kody - Oct 27, 2013

Pros: This bat comes with a nice look and feeling, has great pop, not much vibration on a jam hit, overall this bat is solid and worth every penny. If you're looking for a bat to help you become a dangerous hitter than this bat is for you.

Cons: A little pricy but worth it.

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by James Bendy - Oct 04, 2013

Pros: This bat has a nice sweet spot. The ball jumps off the bat. One can still get a decent result with ball flight distance even if not his square. It is very well balanced. The grip is nice. The handle feels comfortable. Break in time (approx. 120 hits) appears to be less than the S Series alloy bats that Easton produces. Very nice sound when hit solid. Nice paint design sets it apart from others. The bar has been set in the next generation BBCOR bats.

Cons: Cost and finding yourself being selfish and no longer allowing other teamates to use your bat as you have in past years.

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by Markus - Nov 06, 2013

Pros: This bat has a similar feel to the demarini cf5 and has great pop. The weight of the bat seems like it should be. I am a 6'5 eighth grader and this is a good bat for power hitters.

Cons: This bat is way over priced for what you get. It is just like the cf5 which is a lot cheaper than this bat. The vibration on the bat is horrible to, so definitely use batting gloves if you chose to purchase this bat.

by rgman21 - Dec 07, 2013

Pros: It has good pop about the same as the cf5 but good balance and good sweet spot.

Cons: It is way expensive for being almost exactly the same as the cf5.. the cf6 is way better the whole barrel is a good sweet spot and the cf6 is only 400$ and is way better.. this is a good bat don't get me wrong but if u want to get the best out of your money I would recommend the cf6

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by DP - Apr 18, 2014

Pros: Son is playing 50/70 intermediate and BBCOR is required. After using drop 10 and going to a -3 my son was worried. He tried several bats and settled for the Mako 31/28. He's 5'1" and 100 lbs, it took some time in the batting cage to get comfortable. His coach of thee years watched closely. Game one, a single, double and triple for 6 RBIs. Make sure to loosen up, the pop of this bat is worth the big price.

Cons: None if ok with spending more.

Pros: the bat to me just feels weird because of the balanced weight and the big sweet spot put together. if you have never swung this bat before dont buy it unless you know how it feels when you swing

Cons: just because you bought a 450 dollar bat doesnt mean you are going to get base hits and homeruns

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by esb608 - Mar 17, 2014

Pros: this bat is all weighted in the handle so that allows the player to feel like that bat weight is close to nothing. sure this bat might have a little vibration when you hit it below or above the sweetspot but dont take that as a bad thing because when you square the ball right on the barrel on contact you will feel it and know its going a long way. this is the best bat ive ever owned and my two previous bats were a marucci elite bbcor and a voodoo bbcor and this bat blows both out of the water by far. ive never swung a bat like this one. i went 3-3 today with a double two singles and 3 rbis. you cant go wrong with this bat. well done easton

Cons: it is the most expensive bat to hit the market and 450$ is alot but in my opinion it is more than worth it

by Sam - Mar 31, 2014

Pros: Probably an excellent bat. Easton offers quality equipment. That said, anyone can write a review on this forum, even if you haven't ever swung this bat. What you are seeing here are a lot of kids writing a review that haven't even picked up this bat stating how they went 4 for 4, 3 homeruns, and raised their average 100pts. Really?

Cons: Remember: It takes talent, proper coaching, hard work, and heart. Nothing will replace that, not even a magical bat. As often said: It's not the arrow, it's the Indian.

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by Moeball - Dec 09, 2013

Pros: I'm a freshman with insane bat speed and play at the top level in baseball. I didn't want the XL1 because I'm not a fan of endloaded bats, and its not really endloaded, and I didn't want the S1 because I already have the bat speed, so I would always be early. I got this bat and it is basically a balanced XL1 with the S1 handle. Best of both worlds. Get this bat if you're a line drive hitter and you can occasionally put some over the wall.

Cons: Price, but what'd you expect? This is a balanced XL1 with the S1 handle. Get it

2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK

by Joshua Johnson - Oct 30, 2013

Pros: It's an alright bat with an OK sweet spot. I got it 3 weeks ago and and finally broke it in. I definitely prefer the Omaha Balanced over this bat.

Cons: This bat is way too expensive. I bought the Omaha Balanced at Academy for $60 and it is a way better bat than the Easton Mako.

by Eric - Sep 23, 2013

Pros: Grip was nice and the vibration was good. It looks nice but thats about it.

Cons: Felt terrible when i was hitting with it. It had no pop whatsoever. My team and i got this bat to try out for our season and everyone hated it. They would have rather use wood over the Mako. You spend way too much for the bat anyway. You could buy a different bat that is better for half the cost. Sorry Easton but this bat wasn't good.

I'm 5' 3" and 100 pounds. What size is good for me?

Based on your height and weight, a 29" or 30" BBCOR would be the recommended length. But the smallest size the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) is produced in is the 31" length. If you could try out a 31" MAKO that a friend, teammate, or Easton Demo House (http://www.easton.com/baseball/dealer-locator/) had available, that would give you the best insight into what size you would be most comfortable with.

88431

I'm 15 5'7 an weigh 130 lbs. Should I get the Easton MAKO or the Rawlings TRIO?

It's hard to tell you exactly which bat to get based solely on your height and weight. However, the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) is pretty much the hottest bat on the market, you will not be disappointed.

88358

Which bat is better the Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) or the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR (DXCFC)?

Both are great balanced bats. The Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) will have a longer barrel which extends the sweet spot and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR (DXCFC) has new technology called the d-fusion handle which also extends the sweet spot in the barrel.

88197

I am 13 years old and only about 88 pounds I am a big contact hitter, I can't hit for power so which would be better for me the 2014 Easton S1 or the 2014 Easton Mako I use a 31/28?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1) would both be great bats for a contact hitter. You will get a quicker swing speed with the 2014 Easton S1 BBCOR (BB14S1), but you cant go wrong with either one.

88121

I'm 14 years old and 6 feet tall and weigh 200 pounds. What bat size would be good for me?

I would suggest the 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK) in a 33"/30 oz based on your height and weight.

87793

I am debating between this and a XL1. I am more of a contact hitter but can still hit for power? Is this the bat for me?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK would be a great bat for someone with your hitting style. The MAKO has a very balanced swing weight for optimal bat speed which is preferred by contact hitters, but it still retains the extended barrel and large sweet spot of the XL1.

87559

My son is 120lbs and 5-7. He is a 14 year old 8th grader. We are looking to get a bat that is appropriate for him now and possibly next year as a HS freshman. What do you recommend?

If you are looking to get a bat he can use in high school play than a BBCOR certified bat will be required. All of these bats have a -3 length-to-weight ratio. Some of our more popular BBCOR models are the Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR: BBCA2 and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR: DXVXC, and are two very quality bats that are reasonably priced as well.

87419

Does the MAKO allow you to have bat speed or is it just powerful?

Due to the new 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR's (BB14MK) incredible balance, the MAKO will help the player increase bat speed. The increased bat speed and high quality performance will help enhance your power output.

87300

My grandson is at the end of his freshman year in high school, he is currently 5-9 155lbs, but growing. Should we stay with a 33" 30 oz. since he is still growing or move down to a 32" 29 oz. to help enhance better bat speed? He likes the swing of the 32" 29 oz. he is swinging right now.

Based on the fact he is liking the 32" 29 oz now, I would recommend getting that. That should last him several years, especially with the high quality composite found on the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK).

87197

I will be 14 in July. I am 5 feet 10 inches tall and weigh 152 pounds. What size would be good for me?

Based on your height and weight, we would recommend the 32 inch size of the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult bat.

86836

I am 13 years old and I am 5 foot 6 and weigh 145 pounds. What size do you recommend?

Based on your height and weight, we would suggest the 32 inch length of the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK).

86448

What's the coldest temperature the MAKO can be used in?

We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult, in temperatures below 55°F (13°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

86414

Just wondering how much pop does this bat really have compared to the new DeMarini Vexxum and OVERLORD?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) uses new composite materials that provides a balanced feel with an extended barrel. It is very high performing and durable.

86280

What is the recommended temperature for this bat?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult is for recommended use in 55 degree weather or warmer. However, this is not possible for a lot of people in the country and this bat comes with a full 12 month manufacturers warranty.

86273

What are the differences between the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR or the 2014 DeMarini CF6?

Answer Question

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR (DXCFC) will be similar in that they are both two-piece fully composite designs with enhanced connection pieces to help reduce sting and vibration. The differences would be that the Mako has a slightly longer barrel for a larger sweet spot and the CF6 is slightly more balanced.

86233

Which has more pop: the MAKO or RIP-IT Air Elite?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (B14MK) Adult and the RIP-IT Air Elite will have similar pop. The MAKO is a two-piece fully composite bat and will require a break-in period. The RIP-IT Air Elite has a two-piece hybrid design, and because of the alloy barrel, it will be hot out of the wrapper.

86229

Which allows you to have a faster swing the RIP-IT Air Elite or the Mako? And which would you recommend?

When comparing the Easton Mako (BB14MK) to the RIP-IT Air Elite (B1403E) both will be very close but since the Easton Mako (BB14MK) will give you more bat speed because it is a two-piece composite compared to the two-piece hybrid design with the RIP-IT Air Elite (B1403E). Both are great bats and very high performing it comes down to the person's taste between material used to construct each bat.

86206

I am 15 years old, 5'8 and 200 pounds what size bat should I get?

When will the 2014 Easton XL3 32/29 be back in stock?

Easton only produced the 2014 Easton XL3 (BB14X3) in the 33/30 and the 34/31 models.

85951

I thought you couldn't use composite bats in highschool? Is the bat 100% composite?

85935

I just got the MAKO for my son and he loves it ! How many swings does it take to break it in to be game ready ?

To properly break-in the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) we recommend to take 100 -200 swings off a tee or soft toss and rotate the barrel about 1/4" each swing.

Is this bat for line drive or power hitters?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult bat is designed to allow players to reach the highest swing speeds possible. Contact hitters typically look for a balanced bat, but a power hitter who likes a balanced bat could definitely use the MAKO well.

85097

Which brand of BBCOR bat is the highest preferred? What is the best bat in the market now?

Each manufacturer will have different characteristics about their products that will make them more favorable to specific players. It is hard to say which brand is the best, because it ultimately comes down to individual player preference. In terms of balance, the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR has been highly rated for its balanced feel and sweet spot. This is a very high quality bat, and is top of the line if you are looking for a good sweet spot.

85054

I am a senior and have swung both Marucci and Easton. I use a 33" 30 oz. and I do not know what bat to get, the Easton MAKO or the Marucci Elite. Which one is more balanced?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) and the 2014 Marucci Elite BBCOR (MCBE14) are both very balanced bats. You will not notice a big difference between the two bats.

84953

Does this bat need a break in period?

Since this bat is a two-piece composite, we do suggest a break in period. Taking a 100 - 200 hits off a tee or soft-toss. Start at about 40% power and gradually increasing power as you get closer to 150 swings. While rotating the bat a quarter of an inch between each hit to ensure an even break-in.

84392

Is the Easton MAKO and Easton S1 have the same balanced weight for faster bat speed? Or does the MAKO have a faster bat speed?

The new TCT Thermo Composite Technology in the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult bat allows it to have a larger sweet spot than the S1 but also a lighter swing weight. The MAKO is the most balanced bat in Easton's current product line and should let you achieve higher swing speeds than the S1.

84339

Does the easton mako or the demarini cf6 have more pop

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult are both going to be hybrid designs and will produce a lot of power and pop. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult uses TCT thermo composite material and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult will be composed of paradox composite fibers. This technology will be the only difference and is pure personal preference. Both of these bats are top of the line, and will generate momentum with very little sting to the hands. These are both going to produce a lot of pop.

84139

Is this bat more balanced than the S1? Which has a better swing speed?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK Adult) will feel very similar to the Easton S1 BBCOR in swing weight. It will also have a longer, more extended barrel length compared to the S1.

Using our Bat Coach, I found that for a player of your son's size, I would recommend the 32"/29 oz. 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK). A 33"/30 oz. would be acceptable for him as well, but the 32" would be the size I suggest.

83754

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult is one of the best bats available. Compared to the Easton S2, it has a lighter swing weight, an extended sweet spot, and higher quality materials. The Easton S2 would be a great option if you prefer to swing an aluminum model.

83169

I'm 5'8" 190 lbs. and a sophomore. I'm in between a power and a contact hitter. I want bat speed, should I get the DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD or the Easton MAKO?

83118

Is the Mako BBCOR better or the 2014 Rawlings Velo? I am 13 and need a 31 inch bat but cant decide between the two bats.

The 2014 Rawlings 5150 VELO BBCOR (BBV3) Adult is a One-Piece alloy design and the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult uses Easton's TCT Full Composite 2-Piece design. If you are looking for an Alloy I would go with the VELO but if you are looking for a composite then the MAKO would be a great choice as well.

83084

Would the MAKO BBCOR be a good bat for me? I am 11.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult bat would be mandatory for high school and college. I am not sure if you need to swing a BBCOR at your age. If you are required to, the MAKO would be a great choice. It is 100% composite and very balanced.

82936

What is the significant difference between the MAKO and the XL1 besides price and "newness"? My 14 year old loves the XL1 and am looking to buy my 16 year old a bat. Debating between these two probably.

82919

82903

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult would be a good bat for you to invest in if you plan on playing in any leagues that you will have to use a BBCOR bat. By going up 2 oz there will be a slight weight difference. If you have swung 28 oz bats and are comfortable with those then I would definitely suggest this bat.

82723

My son is a 6'1" 215-220 lbs. high school junior with a swing speed between 85-88 mph with his 33"30 oz. 2012 XL2. Do you recommend going with the MAKO, or go with the 2014 XL1?

I am 5'8" and weigh 150 pounds. I used to be a power hitter in little league until I got to the big field, now I am more of a gap hitter. I want to be more of a power hitter, but still have bat speed. Do you recommend the MAKO, S1, Voodoo Overlord, or CF6?

Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 32" model in the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR (BB14MK) Adult. The TCT Thermo composite provides for a lighter swinging bat and faster bat speeds. The MAKO has an extended barrel that provides for a bigger sweet spot and is a great bat for a contact hitter who wants to increase their power.

82552

Will it be ok to hit off a pitching machine that throws real baseball to break in? Why not the balls wit the holes in them?

We would recommend around 150 swings off the tee or soft toss with the 2014 Easton MAKO (BB14MK). If using your Easton MAKO in the cage we would recommend using regular baseballs. The yellow dimpled balls are going to be heavier than the regular baseball which would cause more stress on the bat.

80715

I am a 150 pound 5'3" 13 year old and I have been looking at the Easton Mako and the demarini overlord I occasionally hit a home run and a triple here and there but this year I struggled with getting the ball in the air. I'm looking for a bat with a large sweet spot and will be able to nock balls out of the 350' fence. What size and bat should I get.

We would recommend a 31" model for a player with your height and weight. Both models are great BBCOR models. I would go with the MAKO model because it has a balanced swing weight. The DeMarini Overlord a slight end loaded swing weight.

80697

As far as performance has this bat lived up to all of the hype? I know the swing weights are different, but performance wise how is this compared to the new voodoo overlord? I like the Ping of the voodoo, and the balance of Easton's and rip it's. I've owned all 3 in the past.

The 2014 Easton MAKO has been very popular with excellent reviews. It does not have the same ping sound as the DeMarini Voodoo Overlord because it is a full composite. The MAKO and the Voodoo Overlord are going to be two very popular models for 2014. Deciding between these two will be a preference of a balanced swing weight of the MAKO or the slightly end loaded swing weight of the Voodoo Overlord.

80620

I am a freshman in highschool. I am 14, 5'6 and 130 lbs. My last bat was the 2012 easton s3 bbcor. I am looking for a new 32 inch bat. I am both a power and contact hitter. I am now trying to decyde whether i should get the new 2014 easton s3 bbcor or the Mako. Please give some advice.

Between those two bats, the Mako is going to be the better performer as well as more durable. Being fully constructed of composite material, the Mako will deliver more pop with every swing. The only thing the S3 would have over the Mako is that the S3 can be used in the colder temperatures. The Mako shouldn't be used in temperatures any cooler than 55 degrees.

80509

I'm 13 and 5'0,100 lbs. Should I start swinging BBCOR bats now, or stay with my -5 Omaha? I'm in 7th grade.

I would recommend sticking with a -5 bat for this year. Next year would be a better option to moving into a BBCOR model.

80464

I am a 14 year old boy and I am 5'7 and 125 lbs. I can be a power and contact hitter, so I don't know what bat to get the MAKO or the new XL1? Also what size. Please help.

Based on your size and weight, we recommend a 31" size bat. The Easton XL1 features an extra long barrel and is end loaded with power hitting in mind. The Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK is a combination of the Easton BBCOR S1 and XL1, so it features the speed and balance of the S1 and the extended barrel of the XL1. It is truly the best of both worlds, so if you are both a contact and power hitter, this would be a great option for you.

80379

Can you use this indoors and what type of baseball can you use?

We recommend using regular baseballs with the Easton MAKO. We recommend not using the yellow dimpled cage balls will cause stress on the composite fibers.

80377

What temperature should I use this bat in?

We recommend not using the 2014 Easton MAKO in temperatures below 50 degrees. The colder weather makes the ball harder which causes more stress on the composite fibers.

80255

Is the MAKO bat legal for use in middle schools in North Carolina?

Yes, the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult bat would be legal and BBCOR certified. There are also MAKO in youth and senior league sizes also.

80146

In all honesty, would you recommend the MAKO or CF6?

Both the Easton MAKO and the CF6 will be balanced and light weight. The biggest difference between the two is that the CF6 features a D-Fusion handle to help eliminate vibration. This also causes it to feel more like a one-piece bat.

80130

Do composite bats "run out of pop"? If so after how many hits?

Any composite bat, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult, can lose its pop over time. The more the bat is used, the quicker the bat could lose its pop. Using a wood bat or a bat you don't use in a game can increase the lifespan of the bat. There is no exact number of hits that a bat could take and lose its pop, it would be completely dependent upon many variables including usage and weather temperature.

80111

I am 6 foot and 150 lbs. I was wondering what size I should get? I am a power and contact hitter. I am trying to decide between this and the CF6.

Based on your height and weight, we would recommend a 33" bat. The Easton MAKO and DeMarini CF6 are both designed very similarly. They will have a two-piece fully composite design. Both will also be very balanced and feature a lighter swing weight. The CF6 will feel slightly stiffer than the MAKO because it has the D-Fusion handle to help eliminate vibration.

80088

80010

What's the biggest difference between the Easton MAKO and the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo Paradox? I'm a solid power and contact hitter looking for a bat that will give the most pop with durability.

The Easton MAKO is going to be extremely light weight and balanced. The DeMarini Voodoo is going to be end loaded.

79977

I'm 14 and I've have swung the DeMarini Voodoo (black and white but it kind of feels to much end loaded but I'm not the big dude who hits bombs over 350 but I have great power and contact but I usually keep the ball in play and i want one that the ball just goes flying off the bat without as much end loaded. which one should I get? I swing a 32" 29 The mako /overlord / voodoo paradox/ or the cf6

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the DeMarini CF6 are both balanced two-piece bats. They are designed for a contact hitter. The DeMarini Voodoo and the DeMarini Overlord are both end loaded bats, best for a power hitter.

79913

Which bat has a larger sweet spot? The MAKO, Overlord, or the CF6? Also, which of these bats would have the most pop.

Honestly, all three bats will have some of the best pop and performance available on the market today. The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and Voodoo Overlord will feature a longer, more extended barrel design. This can help with the sweet spot size. The CF6 will have a normal sized barrel design and be very balanced in swing weight.

79787

I'm a senior catcher and first basemen in high school. I have moderate power and about 6'1'' 155 pounds. I normally use a 32/29 but I may switch to a 33''. I am considering the Easton Mako, Easton S1, or Demarini cf6. What do you suggest?

The Easton MAKO and DeMarini CF6 will both have a lighter swing weight than the Easton S1. The CF6 will feel slightly stiffer than the MAKO because it has the D-Fusion handle to help eliminate vibration.

79541

Even though the -5 XL1 is lighter than the MAKO, which one has a lighter feel when you swing it because the XL1 is end loaded?

79472

Will a 33 inch Easton MAKO feel lighter than the New Marucci Black in a 32 inch?

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the 2014 Marucci Black BBCOR: MCBB14 Adult are both two-piece bats with extended barrels, but because the Marucci Black has an alloy barrel the MAKO has a slightly lighter feel.

79469

Does the MAKO have a lot of flex when you make contact or is it stiff like the 2012 5150 Velo?

Based on your height and weight, our Bat Coach tool recommends a 30" model. However, the 31" size is the smallest that the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult is produced in. The balanced swing weight of the MAKO should help make the 31" feel lighter than other options.

Based on his height and weight, we recommend a 33" 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult bat would be a great option. It will have a balanced swing weight and an extended barrel design. I do see more true power guys loving the Easton XL1. It will have a barrel heavy end load to help with the powerful feel.

78548

Is it true that the MAKO has a limited number of hits?

All bats, including the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult, have a useful life and will eventually decline in performance.

The 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult and the 2014 DeMarini CF6 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult are going to be very comparable bats. They are both balanced, two-piece fully composite bats. It will come down to preference in manufacturer and what you have had success with in the past.

77545

The MAKO is a very well balanced model which generally the contact hitters prefer while still having a massive sweet spot for the power hitters.

77217

I am 5'4" and around 110 lbs. I need to use a BBCOR -3 this coming year. I am a lead off hitter (singles,doubles) that occasionally hits with power. Is the new Easton Mako a good choice? Does it come in a 30''?

The smallest length the 2014 Easton MAKO BBCOR: BB14MK Adult is available in is a 31''. It is going to have a light swing weight for increased speeds. The two-piece composite will be a good choice for a contact hitter.

77189

77063

I'm 5'8", 136 lbs, and 14 year old. Should I get a 2014 S1, Xl1, or MAKO?

The Easton MAKO is going to have the lightest swing weight of the three. The Easton S1 will also be a balanced choice. The Easton XL1 is end loaded and is better suited for power hitters.

Would you recommend the MAKO or the CF6?
