Easton Mako Fastpitch Bat -9oz (2015)
2-Piece Composite barrel bat. -9 drop. Some end weight. For a girl with strength.
MAD MAX says:
Easton switched things up this year when it came to the softball line. Easton has such a strong hold on the baseball world, they are looking to get that same hold on the softball world. They dropped the FX2, which was a one-piece composite in the -9 and came out with this beauty, the Mako -9. The concept of the Mako is one that I can talk about for days. Easton takes the balance theory and the longer barrel theory and combines them into one bat. This creates the longest, lightest bat through the zone. A two-piece composite bat with wild POP!

Roy's Thoughts on the Mako
Without a question, the Mako Bats of 2014 were HOT HOT HOT. I can't remember the last time that anyone bat let alone a whole series of bats was this hot.
I call this one the Chocolate Vanilla Swirl. Have you ever been at the Ice Cream store and couldn't make up your mind on what flavor to get? You want Chocolate but you also want Vanilla. Enter the Chocolate Vanilla Swirl.
This bat is a combination of the Easton S1 Speed and XL1 Power. The key to selecting the correct bat is to know your ability. Everyone wants to swing a large club, but if you can't you need to find the best fit.
If the XL1 was too heavy and hard to swing, you're not going to generate the power that the XL1 offers.
If the S1 Speed Bat is too light, you will increase bat speed but will lose power.
Thus the natural choice is the Mako because the Mako is the best of both worlds: Speed and Power.
TCT Thermo Composite Technology: A massive sweet SIZES spot and unmatched bat speed
What are the advantages of TCT Thermo Composite?
This Composite is newer and more expensive but is gives you a larger barrel and a lighter swing weight, translating into a massive sweet spot and unmatched bat speed.
The Mako will have a faster swing speed than the S1 and a barrel size comparable to the XL1. The best of both worlds -- Chocolate and Vanilla.
CXN: Patented two-piece ConneXion technology maximizes energy transfer for optimized feel
What does the ConneXion piece do for you?
The CXN ConneXion piece (also known as hinged technology) maximizes energy transfer for optimized feel.
The handle is isolated from the barrel virtually getting rid of all the vibration and sting.
The ConneXion will create a flex in the bat while swinging, where the bat actually bends and comes back through the strike zone faster due to the flex of the ConneXion piece.

USSSA Certified Softball Bat
USSSA has used a 1.20 BPF standard in its softball programs for 15 years. The BPF standard was developed by NYU Physics Professor Dr. Richard A. Brandt over 15 years ago. The BPF standard is based on fundamental laws of physics that allow Dr. Brandt's testing lab to measure the relative performance of bats to be used in USSSA play.
