Easton S2 Quick Summary
The Easton S2 comes with a two piece design. It is the perfect alternative for players looking for speed over anything else. This bat also comes with the high-quality standards we are used to when it comes to Easton. The simple design makes speed the top priority of the bat. The big barrel provides one of the most optimized hitting surfaces I’ve seen. This new barrel comes with a new sound and responsiveness which I like. The handle of the bat is thin and this makes it easy to maneuver, to hold and improves the overall comfort and experience of the bat.
The Easton S2 uses a combination of alloy and composite materials. This makes it a special option for so many players looking to improve. Players look to improve in terms of speed and who want to be up to date with the latest technologies with this bat. The Hyperlite Matrix Alloy barrel is seen in some other Easton bats and it was chosen due to its impressive properties which include the ability to strengthen in time. So as you play, the material will get denser producing more power and better precision as you get through the learning curve. This is great for players looking to use the bat long-term, to get to know it and adjust their skills accordingly. It also makes the bat a good option for players tired of sub-par product and who need durable bats.
The responsive barrel is coupled with the Black Carbon Handle. The responsive composite material is light and designed in an unobtrusive pattern which makes the player focus on the ball and less on the bat itself.
The handle also comes with Easton`s 1.2mm Hyperskin grip which is light and comfortable. Although comfort can be interpreted in many ways by different players, it is one of the best grips on the market for the majority of players.
As with all new two-piece designs from Easton, the Easton S2 comes with the ConneXion technology. This tech is known for its physical abilities to limit vibration to the player’s hands. The technology has been positively received by players. This makes it one of the most attractive features not only of the bat but of Easton as a brand.
The Easton S2 is among the top choices for a fast, two-piece, baseball bat. It comes with some of the most popular features from the manufacturer without unnecessary technologies. It is a simple yet modern bat made for the majority of the players who need USSSA certification. Its performance makes it desirable at all levels. The bat is also above average in the comfort department.
With a thin handle and a Hyperskin grip, the bat is the top choice for people with sensitive hands. It also helps that the bat uses the two-piece design and the ConneXion connector. With the ConneXion connector, vibrations are kept away from players hands. The price is in line with similar products, but the bat is recommended for people looking to experience the much-appreciated Speed series from Easton.
