The Easton S3 is a big barrel baseball bat. It is made from a one-piece design which favors fast play but can raise issues of comfort through handle vibrations. The bat is part of the Speed series which so many players have enjoyed over the years. It’s lower moment if inertia balances the bat in a unique way. First, the bat comes with higher speeds, balance and most importantly a newly found control which will be much appreciated by dedicated players.
As you might expect, the bat comes with a centered center of gravity. This is partly the base for the increased speed and it gives the player unprecedented control.
The ultra-fast bat comes with all that is needed for fast and aggressive approach. The center of gravity is lowered which means players can expect more speed and a different control. While some find that the control is not so different to a bat with a higher center of gravity, the bat will certainly show its true potential with the advanced player. The barrel is made from Hyperlite Matrix Alloy. The hot material is the latest in the industry due to its incredible properties. The material stiffens in time, giving the player more bat durability and extra security after a number of games.
Another interesting approach which we’ve seen in Easton products is the construction of the barrel with thinner walls. Although the walls are very thin, the strength of the barrel is not lost. But the speed has much to gain with a thinner construction.
This type of construction design continues into the handle. This improves the grip allowing the players for a tighter feel and eventually to better control. A strong grip is essential for the big barrel and this is why Euston has placed such importance on the handle. But the thinner walls act as a great unit together with the barrel. The one-piece design had its critics, but Euston went to show that nothing is impossible.
So who is the ideal user for the bat? Since its lightweight design even with the impressive barrel can have a huge visual impact, the bat might seem to be catered towards stronger players. However, the thing construction also recommends the bat for players with less strength which need above average speeds.
The Euston S3 baseball bat impresses through the simplicity of the design and the final result. This result leads to more speed, increased versatility, and swing mobility. The lower center of gravity also has its impressive fan base. The speed and control gained through this lowered center of gravity can`t really be replicated artificially as it gives the players and feeling of security for those aggressive hits. The pricing finds the bats among the top options for a first fast product. It also recommends it as a second bat to a power-centered option. Finally, the bat might be a great option for players looking for a first one-piece bat with a lower moment of inertia.
