2015 Easton Mako Torq for Fastpitch Softball
If you’re a Fastpitch softball player looking for the bat to help take your game to the next level… Easton may just be your new best friend. Introducing THE 2015 Fastpitch bat to have – the Mako Torq!
The Mako Torq is the alpha dog in Easton’s 2015 Fastpitch Power Brigade and is created using TCT Thermo Composite Technology, which is 100% composite material that gives you all the strength and durability you could ever want in a bat. Constructed as a 2-piece, where the barrel and the handle are connected with the Easton’s new ZERO ConneXion Technology, giving off ZERO vibration to the hands and providing the most efficient energy transfer possible. This allows for a true optimized feel and the best performance in the game. Easton made this ZERO connection because of girls softball players specifically asking for fastpitch bats without sting. Girls… Easton has delivered!
What separates the Mako Torq from the rest of the fastpitch lineup is the new 360 Torq Handle Technology!
This allows the bottom of the handle and grip closest to the knob to actually rotate! Yes, rotate! So, when the bat is going through the hitting zone, the bottom hand can rotate along with the handle allowing your hands and wrists to stay as comfortable exploding through the ball and leaving the hitting zone as they were entering the hitting zone, while also keeping the barrel in the zone longer. This results in pitches being squared up more often, with more power! It’s almost not fair… but that’s a pitcher’s problem.
This Torq comes as a drop -10 in length to weight ratio with an extra-long barrel, ultra-thin composite Torq handle and gauze grip. While being available in 31”/21oz, 32”/22oz, 33”/23oz and 34”/24oz, the Torq also sports the 1.20 BPF USSSA thumbprint and ASA stamps right on the handle. Also approved for play by NSA, ISA, ISF and SSUSA.

Most umpires around the area have been making players darken or get rid of the lime green color from clothes, sleeves, and gloves due to an interference of the color against the color of the ball. They think it slows the ability to see the ball clearly and so players are not allowed to have that color anywhere on their person. Is this going to be the case with this bat? I would hate to purchase such an expensive bat and not be able to use it due to the color. I understand that this is a silly rule for college athletes, but is this a rule around the nation or just certain areas?
Great question. It’s definitely not a nation-wide rule, but certain areas may enforce it as they see fit.
As far as a bat – that should NOT be the case. The bat is an offensive tool that has nothing to do with the play once contact is made. It simply does not make it more difficult to call a game, so you should have zero trouble with that. You can always give someone in charge of the league you play in a phone call and double check with them, but I’m sure Easton at some point did some checking in on this when they were first brainstorming the idea of making the Torq for Fastpitch.

I purchased this bat this summer and when I got it, the store I got it from said that it was legal to use, and once I start using it this fall my coach was trying to tell me that it was illegal to use in games, I was just wondering if she was right or not?
It is ABSOLUTELY legal to use this bat. It has all the approvals that any other fastpitch softball bat has.
