New for 2014! Introducing the SPEED Brigade; designed to increase bat speed at an affordable price. The all new SPEED Brigade provides players with the industry’s best, balanced design and a lighter swing weight than ever before. By swinging this perfectly weighted ball crusher, hitters will see a dramatic increase in not only swing speed, but the power they produce. Made from Easton's high-strength 7050 Aircraft Alloy, the one-piece youth bat will certainly exceed expectations set by its price point. The S500 also features an ultra-thin 29/32 inch handle with a pro tack grip to deliver a satisfying feel and allow players to remain in control of their bat. With its drop 13 length-to-weight ratio, 2 1/4 inch barrel diameter, and a USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp, the Easton S500 is ready to hit the field. Easton: Engineered for Glory! Rest assured, the Easton S500 is backed by Easton's Twelve (12) Month Warranty.

Is there enough of a difference between the performance of the Easton S500 and the Easton Reflex LX73 to justify the price difference? Or is it primarily just a change in appearance?

The main difference between the two items are the graphics. The 2014 Easton S500 ( YB14S500) and the (LX73) will be similar in performance and durability.

My son is 7 years old, 46in tall and 60lbs. He is moving up to the pitching machine league this year. Thinking of purchasing him a 28in 15oz bat. Trying to decide between the S500 and the Easton Reflex LX73. Suggestions? The comparison option didn't provide much input.

The 2014 Easton S500: YB14S500 replaced the Easton Reflex. They both use the same 7050 alloy and are very balanced. The balanced design is great for a younger player.

83369

Does this bat need to be broke in?

The Easton S500 is a one piece all alloy bat that will be hot out of the wrapper. In general the bats you need to break in are those made of composite materials.

83368

Does this bat need to be broken in?

The 2014 Easton S500 (YB14S500) has an alloy barrel and does not require a break-in period.

I just purchased this bat and need to know if it is stamped under ASA 2000 or ASA 2004 guidelines.

This 2014 Easton S500: (YB14S500) Youth is a Youth Baseball bat and does not carry any ASA performance certification mark/stamp. However, the 2014 Easton S500: (FP14S500) Fastpitch is a fastpitch softball bat and it carries the 2004 ASA stamp like all other 2014 fastpitch models being made. If you did purchase this Youth model and need a Faspitch bat, you can find everything you need for an exchange in this link: https://www.justbats.com/returns/

My son is 4'11" and is 10 years old and weighs 105 lbs. He's stocky and a slow at bat but makes contact. What bat would you suggest?

The 2014 Easton S500 (YB14S500) is a very balanced bat. It would be a great option for a player who needs to increase their at speed. We recommend a 30" 17 oz. for his height and weight.

Is this a speed or power bat?

The 2014 Easton S500 YB14S500 Youth has a balanced swing weight typically preferred by contact hitters who generally hit for speed versus power.

Is this like the MAKO?

The 2014 Easton S500 (YB14S500 Youth) is significantly different from the 2014 Easton MAKO (YB14MK Youth). The S500 is a one-piece aluminum design and the MAKO is a two-piece composite design. Both models have a balanced swing weight but the S500 has a -13 length to weight ratio and the MAKO has a -11 length to weight ratio.

My son has a tough time with stinging. Will this bat be good for him?

One-piece bats like the 2014 Easton S500: YB14S500 Youth typically have more sting than a two-piece bat. We recommend a bat with a composite handle to eliminate vibration. The 2013 Easton S2: YB13S2 Youth would be an excellent option.

My son is 5 years old and currently uses a 27" 14 oz. Reflex. I believe the 2012 model, black in color. He is tall for his age and gets the bat around pretty good. More of a contact hitter rather than power. I am wondering if the 28" 15 oz. would be too large or a good fit for him?

Try using our at coach to size your son. You can find it in the link. If it says to get him a 27" bat you might just go to a 27" 15 oz. bat. http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

Purchased my 7yr. old son the 28" 18 oz. 2014 DeMarini big barrel a few weeks ago and it is a little too heavy for him. How does this bat compare to the Easton Reflex? Looking for something light (perhaps the 27" 14 oz.) Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks.

The 2014 Easton S500: YB14S500 Youth replaced the Easton Reflex. It uses the same alloy material and will be similar in feel and performance.
