The Easton YB14S1 is a 2 piece bat with connexion technology that gives greater energy transfer and better feel. The S1 was designed as a lighter swing weight in order to generate more swing speed. The lighter weight also helps batters control their barrel for better selection of ball placement. This bat has IMX composite barrel which has been a staple in the Easton line up for years now.
The Easton XL1 has been a go to bat for most youth baseball players and the YB14X1 will not dissapoint. Same 2 piece connexion design and IMX composite we are used to. The barrels are a little larger to increase the hitting area and the sweet spot.
The new d fusion handle with help eliminate vibrations as most Demarinis are known to do. The paradox composite has come a long way as far as durability adding to the value of the Demarini line. The CF6 is very responsive to rolling and shaving and as always the end load helps increase bat speed.
What is unique about the Combat Youth Portent is that it has the longest barrel length on the market. We realize this translates to a larger sweet spot and more potential for the "trampoline effect" we want to see out of a shaved or rolled bat. Somebody has gotten it right for a change!
The Combat Youth Wanted has precision molding technology which allows for a truer barrel dimension. The blended fiber technology incorporates vibration dampening, performance, and durability. Combat also employs seamless construction which allows the composite to run the entire length of the bat with no seams and makes for a bat with no weak spots as a result of connections in the composite.
