WOW, Easton has 12 new bats in their BBCOR line and things can get confusing. Don't worry, I'll talk you through each bat. This model is called the Mako Torq XL. It is a two-piece, all-composite bat just like the Mako. It will have more end-weight, hence the name XL. It will be a bat more for a power hitter. The next part of this bat is that Easton put a Torq handle on it. The Torq is 360 degrees of rotation in the handle. This allows for a player to come through the zone with their hands on a normal plane. If you heard a baseball hitting coach tell you palm up, palm down this is what the Torq will do for you. I have heard all the negative feedback on the Torq. I have heard that it is a gimmick, it will teach bad habits. This is not the case. In baseball, it is all about muscle memory and creating good habits the Torq helps you in that sense. Awesome bat, great POP and watch out.

The BBCOR formula provides a better measure of the bat's performance and therefore allows the rules committee and bat testing laboratories to better predict field performance based on lab tests. The goal is that non-wood bats that meet this new standard will perform similarly to wood bats. All BBCOR bats will incorporate a logo mark once certification approval is granted. This mark will be consistent across every approved bat design so umpires will easily identify approved bats.
At Closeout Bats we stock what we sell! We have a huge warehouse and are NOT drop shipping bats like many web sites. We update inventory and availability on the Web site several times a day as inventory positions change shipping hundreds and hundeds of bats. We also sell bats out of our physical store, so sometimes things sell out before we can get them off the Web site.
Limited quantities available. Prices subject to change without notice. Like we say, if it's on the site, it's in the warehouse -- just SOMETIMES it might have some other player's name on it! If you snooze, you lose, so ORDER YOURS NOW!
