Easton Mako XL 2-5/8" Big Barrel USSSA Bat -8oz (2016)
MAD MAX says:
Every year when Roy and I see the new bats we always say, "Ooh, that's sweet" or "this one will be the bat this year." The Mako XL is that bat across every category. This model is the big barrel -8. This means it will have a 2-5/8 barrel with a -8 drop. This is a great bat for a kid that is playing on the bigger field and can use any drop with any material in the barrel. The -8 will fall in between the -10 and the -5, perfect for that in-between stage. The way you get the -8 is a simple math equation: you take the length and subtract the weight, so if the bat is 29 inches it will be 21 ounces (29-21=8). It also works that when you go up in length you go up in ounces. This bat will come in four sizes: 29, 30, 31 and 32. Easton upgrades the composite to that new TCT Thermo composite, and what this composite does is that the old one didn't give a player a larger sweet spot without compromising weight of the bat. WOW, Easton once again!!
