What are the opinions regarding this bat. We have an opportunity to buy last years model (2015) fairly cheap ($130) and was wondering if the bat's worth it. I heard that the Mako performs poorly with hitters who have a high bat speed. Something about the rebounding effect isn't as effective. Is this true? Older son has a 5150 and loves it, but I now have a younger son who needs a bat (just entering the big diamond). Unfortunately, neither team has team bats to use. Any help would be appreciated. Also, are there other bats under $150 that are recommended? Thanks
bbcor? Son loves Easton S3Z, there are still some 2015 out there new for $109. Son has swung easton alloy bats from 11-14yo. This bbcor is balanced like his previous ones, which is what he likes. I would have bought him the mako or 5150 or whatever he wanted, but he took the cheaper bat. Worked out great for both of us.
2018 has been using the 2015 Mako for over a year (33/30) and has loved it. Likes how it is very balanced as opposed to top heavy, and it is a steal at $130 as retail is more like $400. Probably half the kids on the high school team using Easton Mako (not Torq) or S1's, other half uses the Louisville Slugger Prime, with a few Marucci & Rawlings sprinkled in.
