2015 Easton Mako vs Mako Torq

2015-Easton-Torq-Vs-Mako-Baseball-Bats-Duel2015 Easton – Mako vs. Mako Torq

Easton’s bats are always highly advanced, incredibly constructed and right at the top as far as popularity. Easton is obviously dedicated to creating nothing short of elite performance. Let’s just say the 2015 Easton series of bats aren’t an exception to that. In fact, they’re better! This year’s lineup, however, is dominated by the two big dogs: The returning, improved Mako and the new, green Mako Torq.

What are the differences between the 2015 Easton Mako and the 2015 Easton Mako Torq?

I’m glad you asked! Let’s get to the bottom of it…

First, let’s go through all the things that they have in common, which is quite a bit. They are both simply a work of art, crafted with 100% TCT Thermo Composite Technology. This composite material is the best in the game! It truly maximizes the potential in every phase, especially the sweet spot in the barrel. Both of these bats are also a 2-piece, connected using Easton’s patented CXN ConneXion Technology, which efficiently transfers energy and gives the bat an optimized feel.

For Fastpitch softball only Easton took that even further and made the ZERO CXN ConneXion Technology. This connection was engineered to completely eliminate vibration, hence the ZERO, and give Softball girls the best in performance!

Now… the Mako and the Mako Torq differ in a few ways…  one of which that is an industry changing feature that is bound to start a trend!

We’ll start with the grip, with the Mako sporting Easton’s signature performance diamond grip while the Mako Torq has black and white gauze grip. They both give hitters what they need, so that just comes down to a preference. Another difference is the color design as the Mako returns with its orange look, while the Mako Torq has a “Torq” green color that lets everyone know who has the newest, baddest bat in town! The glaring way they differ is Easton incorporated the brand new 360 Torq Handle Technology on the Mako Torq. The bottom of the handle and the grip closest to the knob can actually be rotated!

How does the 360 Torq Handle benefit you? It allows hitters to square up more pitches by allowing the bottom hand to rotate while the bat is going through the hitting zone. This keeps the barrel in the zone longer and ultimately gives the hitter more power, more often! This technology is what makes the Mako Torq priced a little higher than the Mako, rightfully so.

One last difference is the leagues Easton made them to play in…

They both have an edition for Fastpitch Softball and also BBCOR, Big Barrel and Youth baseball. However, only the Mako comes in a Junior Big Barrel for baseball, while the Mako Torq does not.

The verdict? Give me one and i’ll approach the plate with the utmost confidence! It all comes down to, besides the difference in grip type, whether you want to pay a few bucks more for the brand new technology – the Torq handle. Other than that they are almost identical.
