One of the most respected series in baseball and softball bats are the Power Brigade bats from Easton. They are known to be the best tool for power and contact hitters and have been designed to provide its users a massive sweet spot that will help propel the ball further than they would with any other bat. For those looking for a big barrel baseball bat, one of the top for 2014 is the Easton XL1.
The 2014 Easton XL1 is a -5 oz. bat that was constructed with an IMX composite barrel. The material is the best that Easton had available to them and they made the big barrel as thin as possible with sacrificing durability. The walls on the bat are flexible which helps the bat trampoline off the barrel on each swing. The handle of the bat was made with SIC “Black Carbon” composite material, which is stiffer, but still has been tested and proven to feel better when used with a flexible barrel.
The 2014 Easton XL1 -5 oz. bat is one of the most powerful for the home run hitters on the team because it is heavier. If you are strong enough to swing a heavier bat like this one and still have quick hands through the strike zone, the amount of power you will be able to generate with your swing is far and away better than other big barrel bats also released this year. That’s not to say that contact hitters can’t also swing this bat, but these players need to so wisely. These smaller players can use this bat to make slap hits made famous by Ichiro Suzuki.
