by Jacob - Mar 29, 2012
Pros: Once we got this bat we had to get a bigger yard
by - Apr 11, 2012
Pros: nice grip, good length to weight ratio, well balanced
Cons: none so far
by Spanky - Apr 28, 2012
Pros: Really cool bat that's well balanced. It's light which means better control and higher bat speed. The ball really seems to jump off the bat's oversized sweet spot. Tremendous value for the money...every bit as good a bats costing twice as much.
Cons: Your window replacement guy is gonna love you.
by Jackson - May 05, 2012
Pros: I can not tell you the effect this bat has on my grandson hitting. If i could tell you one bat to buy this woud be the bat.
by Bailey Cottongin - May 07, 2012

by jorde - May 24, 2012

by FM10 - Jun 07, 2012
Pros: I've hit 2 deep homeruns with this bat in 5 games
by 6u - Jun 07, 2012
Pros: lot of pop
Cons: should have bought it sooner!!!
by V V age 9 - Jul 08, 2012
Pros: This is a great bat. The weight is just right. A week after I got the bat I played in an all star tournament and I got a hit every time I was up to bat. I batted 1.000!
by Dylan - Apr 27, 2013
Pros: It's all about bat speed in the little league. My boy was swinging slow through the zone with his Easton -10 Cyclone. Once he started swinging the -13 Reflex, he quickly realized how much faster his bat speed was and his confidence took off! Now, he jumps on any pitch that is in the zone and drives completely through the ball with very quick hands. Put this bat in his hands and spend some time doing some soft toss practice. Watch him come alive with confidence as his hand-eye coordination improves due to the quick bat speed of the Easton, I highly recommend it!
Cons: Wish we had bought one sooner!
by Nick - Jun 10, 2012
Pros: This bat is great. I used the old reflex in my younger years, and crushed the ball with it. Great bat and highly recomended for the price.
by cameran sotto - Jun 20, 2012
Pros: great pop, no shock, less singles, more homers. i coach a u10 team and we already have 12 homers with the bat. its amazing
Cons: abousolutly nothing
by tphipps - Apr 04, 2013
Pros: Excellent, well balanced, great pop and solid design. Very impressed with the overall performance and helped increase my sons hand speed and angle through the zone. I was hesitate of the affordable price assuming it wouldn't provide the quality of the bats two and three times higher in price. My son is 11 and we purchased the 30" 17 oz. He is getting through the zone quicker and making solid contact every time. the price is unbelievable and got free shipping. I ordered it on a Tuesday and received it on Thursday. Very impressed with the bat, the price and most of all the service. I would recommend this bat and Just Bats to anyone.
Cons: No complaints, Very satisfied customer that will definitely be a returning customer.
by Scott - Feb 01, 2013
Pros: My son has used the 27" for his 6 and 7 year old machine pitch seasons. The bat has held up really well and he swings it with confidence. A couple kids on his team that were struggling with their bats switched to it mainly due to its weight and balance. I saw a notable increase in contact and confidence as well. It's amazing the difference a bat can make for a kids enjoyment of the game when they hit the ball regularly. For the price, it's a fantastic bat.
by vk - Mar 02, 2013
Pros: Great bat speed. My 6 yo is in 40 mph machine pitch. Got a hit every at bat this fall ball. Awesome product!
by JBG - Mar 17, 2013
Pros: My son is 7 and growing as a hitter. This was an upgrade from an Easton Typhoon. We noticed an immediate improvement in our first batting practice. Good quality and price.
Cons: You can feel a little sting if you miss the sweet spot.
by cardbar - Apr 26, 2013
Pros: Good balance and huge hitting sweet spot. Ball really jumps off of the bat.

by Studly - May 25, 2012
Pros: Very nice bat
by LL Dad - Jul 27, 2012
Pros: Absolutely fantastic. My son had the best LL year so far, and this bat with its -13 drop was a big part. He was not worried about turning on a pitch and missing it on the handle.
Cons: Standard handle wrap wore out quickly. Replaced and now even better than before.
by Contact hitter - Mar 20, 2013
Pros: This bat is good if your are a contact hitter. It wont get you many HR cause its very lightweight and doesnt have the biggest sweet spot. Otherwise good bat for a contact hitter
Cons: The bat will probly sting 9 times out of 10 when you hit it anywhere thats not the sweet spot
by Bballmom - May 01, 2013
Pros: Light. Good pop. I ordered this bat for my son because the previous bat we ordered was just to heavy. He is 8 yrs. old and about 55 lbs. we ordered him the 28/15. His other bat is 29/17 (different brand). He loved the Reflex right away. His first game with it he had a triple, 2 doubles, and a single. Altogether he has had 5 games so far with the new bat and he averages 3 hits a game.(before 1 maybe 2).
Cons: Sometimes a little sting but not to bad.
by Danno - May 08, 2013
Pros: My son loves his new bat and went 2 for 3 in his first game. Not only was it just what he wanted, but it was received at our door step only 2 days after ordering and the shipping was free!
by Djr coach - May 10, 2013
Pros: Bat has a good pop. Excellent value.
Cons: Non so far, but it my son hasn't had it very long. He has only used it at a couple of practices and in the cage one time. He is thrilled with it and I am pretty happy also.

Pros: Good pop right out of the box and balanced swing. My son is 7 and swings the 29" 17 oz. with ease. He loves it!
Cons: Sweet spot. Some sting, but not much.
by JohnV8r - Jun 03, 2013
Pros: My 9 year-old son just finished his first season of Little League with Easton Reflex by hitting a walk off HR followed by a 3 RBI double. This bat has excellent weighting to develop good swing characteristics and generate great bat speed. I highly recommend this bat.
by Anonymous - May 21, 2012
Pros: Great bat that my son really likes and the price was just right
by Bigboy - Jun 25, 2012
Pros: My son had a omen but thought the bat wasn't as great as it should. First game of the season we got this and hit a couple of line drives that went over. 4/4 3 home runs and 9 rbi's. Had to get a bigger yard!
by Coach Randy - Apr 22, 2013
Pros: Great bat, 6 to 9 year olds LOVE IT!!! All the boys on the team want to use this bat instead of their own.

by Lucky - May 08, 2013
Pros: The best!
by hammer - Jun 04, 2013
Pros: This bat improved my sons bat speed a lot. He is 7 years old. He can now hit the ball in the grass. My son is little in stature but bat speed is where it is at. This reflex creates alot of pop of the bat. I would recommend it
by leadoff - Jul 05, 2013
Pros: I got this bat for my 8 year old to use for his first year of travel ball. He was the most consistent hitter on the team and had the second highest batting average. Since i will be getting another bat for next year(he grew some) we looked at other bats which were more expensive. But this is the bat he wants. Don't let the low price fool you. It is a very good bat .
by BB dad - Aug 29, 2013
Pros: For the price a great bat to increase bat speed. Light weight drop 13 has several of our 9yo players making contact.
Cons: Not a lot of pop due to light bat and thin design. if you miss the sweet spot expect the hands to sting.

by coachdad22 - May 17, 2013

Pros: Good weight and balance. Great bat for the price.
by baseballer - May 29, 2013
Pros: Honestly, I have a little older version of the Easton Reflex bat. When you hit it on the sweet spot, it will send the ball deep. I almost sent some balls out. Pretty good bat.
Cons: Like I said, I have another Reflex and it stings your hands pretty bad. If you want a light bat like this, I'd go with the S2 or the S3, even the Team Marucci bat.
by Roop - May 31, 2013
Pros: My son is a tall, skinny 9 year old. The 30" 17OZ Reflex is the right bat for him. A deep double for his first at bat, a fast single for his second at bat and popped out to deep left field for his third. A great well balanced bat for young players.
Cons: None at all
by Gator Boy - Jun 21, 2013

My son is 11, 4'6" and about 90 pounds. Last season he liked his 28" 15 oz Easton Reflex. He's at a swing speed of 61 mph and working to improve. We're looking at the Reflex and the XL3. He swung the XL3 in a store and compared it to other 30" bats. Any thoughts between the two bats mentioned, or other recommendations?
Asked by Christopher on Jan 13, 2014
The Easton Reflex: LX73 Youth is a very balanced model. If you are looking to improve bat speed, I would recommend not going with the XL3, but sticking with a balanced bat. The Easton S3 and the Demarini Vexxum would be great options to look at as well.

I bought the -13 Reflex 31" so my son would have a nice new bat, after using his existing bat for around 2 seasons. I want to make sure it's appropriate for his age, height, and weight. He is a very good batter, but I'm looking to allow him to bring a little more power and speed to the plate, as it's his first season going against kids pitching as opposed to the machine. He is 9 1/2 yrs. old and 80 lbs. now, and was 55" (4' 7") in October. So, I would guess he's an inch or two taller. Please email me what you think about this particular bat for my son's use in games. ... Thank you!
Asked by Michael on May 15, 2013
Based on his size, a 31" model of the Easton Reflex: LX73 is recommended. The Easton Reflex: LX73 is a balanced bat that is a great option for younger players looking to either maintain, or improve their swing speed. At it's current price, the LX73 is a great deal.

My son is 9 years old (10/1/03), he is 53" and 73 lbs. I'm thinking of getting him the 30" 17 oz. option. What do you suggest? He hits line drives with heavier bats but is late on them, pushing them to right field or the right side of the infield (right handed hitter).
Asked by JB on May 12, 2013
A 29" bat length is recommended for a player his size for the Easton Reflex: LX73 Youth. With it being a -13 size he could very well use the 30" length because the bat will be so light.

With the information you gave me, I would suggest 30" bat. Here are a couple of bats I would recommend. The first is the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPX Omaha: YB136 Youth and the other is the 2013 Miken RZR YRZR12 Youth. Both are very easy swinging bats that would fit your son perfectly.

My son is 4'6" and 65 pounds. He is 8 years old and turning 9 in July. I'm thinking the 29 inch 16 oz. reflex would be the right size?

My son will be 8 in April and is about 54 inches and 70+ pounds (tall for his age). He swung a 28" bat with ease last season. I was thinking of a 29" this year for the Minors in Little League. Does that sound right, or should I stick with the 28"?

Is this bat approved for play in the Cal Ripken 2013 season?
Asked by Julie7476 on Dec 11, 2012

My son is 5 years old. 49 inches. 56 pounds. He's tall for his age. All the charts I'm looking at says he should either have a 28 or 29 inch bat. Is this suitable for a 5 year old??
Asked by Michelle on Dec 06, 2012
I would recommend a 28" model for a 5 year old of that size. The Easton Reflex: LX73 would be a great choice.
· Dec 06, 2012
Concerned about a few of the reviews that talk about stinging the hands. Is it due to the thinner handle? How much thinner is the handle than a comparable bat?
Asked by daveh on Dec 03, 2012
The Easton Reflex: LX73 Youth bat has a handle that is about .03" to .06" thinner than average. This is a one-piece alloy bat, and typically, one-piece bats like the Reflex have a little more sting and vibration compared to two-piece bats. It's not necessarily correlated with the thinner handle.
· Dec 03, 2012
My son is 4'6 and weighs about 70 lbs. with a pretty good swing. 8 yrs old. Looking at the bat pack with the Easton Reflex and Rawlings Plasma. How would size those up? Is 30/17 or 29/16 the route to go on the Reflex?
Asked by E Bas on Nov 26, 2012
Based on his height and weight we recommend a 29' 16 oz Easton Reflex: LX73. Both the Reflex and the Plasma will be similar in performance and feel.
· Nov 26, 2012
I'm wondering what the benefit is to ordering the bat pack that includes 2 separate bats for my 7 year old son. He is 50" and about 60 lbs. If I go this route should I order the same length with the distinction being solely the weight of each bat?
Asked by Richard on Nov 25, 2012
The most important benefit of the JustBats.com Bat Packs in the better price. You could get two bats that are very similar to use in the same season or you could get a bat that he is ready for immediately and a bat he will soon grow in to.
· Nov 25, 2012

Asked by Zeke on Nov 05, 2012
Using the Bat Coach Feature on justbats.com I was able to see that your son should be swinging a bat that is 28 inches in length. The Easton Reflex: LX73 Youth bat does come in a 28" 15oz. model that would be perfect for his size.
· Nov 05, 2012
My son is turning 7 yrs old (49" tall 55lbs) and playing coach pitch this year. He generally uses a ligher bat for more control. Would you recommend the Easton Reflex in 27"-14oz? Will this bat have more pop than a big barrel bat? Thanks.
Asked by Pete on Aug 03, 2012
Given his height and weight we would recommend a 28-29" model. This is a balanced bat for bat control but will not have more pop than a big barrel.

Can you tell me the difference between this model and the Easton "Surge"?
Asked by Shawn on May 11, 2012
The 2012 Easton Reflex is a one piece all aluminum bat. The Easton Surge is a two piece, composite handle and aluminum barrel bat. Both will be similar in performance, but the Surge will have a little more flex to it when it is swung, to help contact type hitters get the bat head through the zone.
· May 11, 2012
I wanted to get my son this bat but his old bat is a 31" 20 oz. Will this weight difference effect him?
Asked by david on May 01, 2012
If your son needs quicker bat speed, the 31" 18 oz will be fine. If he has quite a bit of power, we recommend not to decrease in weight.
· May 01, 2012

Looking to buy a bat for my granddaughter. This is her first year playing T-ball, and is 9 yrs old. What bat do you recommend and what size & weight?
Asked by Vence on Apr 19, 2012
For a 9 year old playing tee ball, I would recommend a bat around 29 inches with a weight between 16 and 18 ounces.
· Apr 19, 2012
Sizing for a 10 year old, travel LL. He is about 4 foot 4 and 90 pounds. Looking at 30 in 17 oz. Does that sound right?
Asked by Lori L on Apr 11, 2012
Based on his height and weight, he's right on the edge between a 29 and 30 inch model. I think if you go with a 30 inch 17 ounce model, he'll be very successful with that size.
· Apr 11, 2012
Just bought this for my 7 year old. Can he hit real baseballs with this bat? 20 feet away, easy pitches for batting practice.

· Apr 09, 2012
Does this bat have "BPF 1.15" stamped on it?
Asked by Jen on Mar 29, 2012
The Easton Reflex will state on the barrel that it is USSSA BPF 1.15. It will not have the "thumbprint" stamp that the big barrels are requiring.
· Mar 29, 2012
Does it have the 2012 USSSA stamp?
Asked by Tom on Mar 06, 2012
No. This bat does not have the new USSSA stamp. USSSA will not require this new stamp on youth small barrel bats until 2013
· Mar 06, 2012
This particular bat features the old USSSA stamp, but not the new one. The old stamp is being grandfathered in for the 2012 season, and this bat is legal for use in 2012.
· Mar 06, 2012
How Heavy is this bat? Would it be suitable for my 6 year old son?
Asked by Chuy on Feb 15, 2012
This model would have a -13 length to weight ratio. Easton has designed this bat to be very well balanced giving it a lighter swing weight. This would work great for a player of all ages.

how does this bat compare to the more expensive.bats
Asked by paps on Sep 29, 2011
The Reflex doesn't use as high of quality alloy as some of it's conterparts. It is still a great performing bat for the price.
· Sep 30, 2011
How does this bat compare to the Easton LX70? What is the difference? Is it worth the extra money?
Asked by Robert on Sep 11, 2011
The biggest difference is going to be the alloy that is used in the barrel of the bat. The LX73 is going to use a newer technology and is going to be a hotter bat. The LX73 will also be a more durable bat.
