Easton Mako Torq Brett Helmer Balanced ASA Slowpitch Bat (2016)
MAD MAX says:
The Mako Torq came out in 2015 and was easily the most talked about bat. The truth is some good, some not. I would be honest with you if I didn't like the Torq. I know this. It has a purpose, and I would say try it and see what you think. The Torq has what we call a rotating handle this allows for two things to happen. One thing is your hands will always line up with that palm-up, palm-down technique. The honest truth is that you will not feel this happening at all. I would suggest just swing the bat and not think about it. The second thing is that is no way Easton could come up with a bat that would have the barrel rotate and be approved as well, so they did the next best thing when the handle rotates the barrel will too, which will mean more balls hit on the sweet spot of the bat. The TORQ will also feature a composite handle. It is truly a bat of the future. This model is the balanced model, so it will have a nice evenly balanced feel with a nice swing weight. It will come in only 34 inches and be either 26 ounces, 27 ounces or 28 ounces. This is last year's model, so sizes could run out. It will be approved for ASA play. The TORQ has a purpose and a place.
There will be a new Certification Mark to be used on future bat models manufactured for the game of Slow Pitch for 2013 and beyond. The current 2000 and 2004 Certification Marks will continue to be valid Marks for the existing Slow Pitch bats.
Any new models produced by the manufacturers will display the new Certification Mark for bats used in the game of Slow Pitch Softball for ASA.
