Types of Easton Mako Bats
(1) Eston aluminum bats
The hardness of aluminum composite can result in much greater speeds when the ball comes off the bat. aluminum bats are very popular among the lower levels of baseball, from Little League to the college game.
(2) Easton Composite Bats
Easton Composite baseball bats, opposed to aluminum or wooden ball bats, it features a reinforced carbon fiber polymer, or composite, into the bat’s construction. Such composite material may make up all or part of a bat. Bats made entirely of this polymer are known as composite bats.
(3) Easton Mako Wood Bats
A wood baseball bat is a smoothly shaved wooden or metal club used in the sport of baseball to hit the ball after it is thrown by a pitcher.
Why do MLB use wooden bats?
Wooden bats are intentional in major league baseball because they are not the best choice to hit a ball simply because of this reason. It is A LOT easier to hit a ball hard with a metal bat, and switching to metal (or really anything more structurally sound than wood would be an unfair match.
(4) Easton Mako BBCOR bats
BBCOR is defined as “Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution.” This specification regulates how much energy is lost during the bat’s contact with the baseball. The higher the number a bat registers in the test, the more trampoline effect it has.
The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) agrees that 0.50 would be the maximum value a BBCOR bat could yield, and that is slightly higher than that of a wooden bat.
And all BBCOR certified bats must also have a barrel diameter no greater than 2 ⅝”, a length to weight ratio no greater than -3 and a length that does not exceed 36”.
What is a certified bat?
If you’re not sure a particular bat is BBCOR certified, you can always reference Washington State University’s list of NCAA certified baseball bats by clicking here
Wood bats that are made from one piece of solid wood, excluding Bamboo, do not require a BBCOR certification mark for NCAA and NFHS play. But Wood bats that are constructed from a combination of woods, contain composite materials, or are made of Bamboo, will be required to carry the BBCOR certification mark.
Senior League/Youth Big Barrel models that carry the USSSA BPF 1.15 mark (pictured below) are not BBCOR certified
