The Easton 2018 S450
Another 2018 Easton baseball bat review means that we’re going to be looking at a good baseball bat today. If you are looking for new youth baseball player for your little leaguer or just a team bat, you came to the right bat. The 2018 Easton S450 is a great choice for any little league player because of the strong aluminum and good balance, but we’ll talk about that later.
Background on Easton
If you don’t know Easton, just know that they are one of the best baseball manufacturers in the world. Right now I would say that they are leading the metal bat game. You can go out and look at other metal bats, and they can be good, but probably not as good as Easton.
Easton has been around for a long time, I even used their bats when I was a youth player. I had an Easton Stealth Speed which was the best bat I had when I was younger (I still have it). That’s just a little about Easton and my experience with it. I would rate their company 10/10 because of their advancements that they made to baseball games around the globe. Now I’ll shut up and get to the part you really want, the bat.
To start off, the 2018 Easton S450 has a drop 8 (-8) length to weight distribution. For little league players, this might be a little heavy, but the material balances this out. This bat is made of Alx50 Military grade aluminum. I know this might be alarming that your child is using metal that is used in the military, but it’s actually a good thing. Military grade just means that the aluminum is super-strong, therefore making it more durable. Also, the stronger the material, the more pop the bat has. This is why wood baseball bats don’t hit as far as metal baseball bats. The 2018 Easton S450 is like a stronger version of other metal baseball bats.
The second part of this bat is the durability since this is a need for the little ones. Bats are thrown in the dirt, dropped on concrete, or dragged to the car. All of this is sometimes inevitable so it is important to have a strong and durable bat. I can assure you that this bat is durable. Like I said before, this is made of Military grade aluminum, so how much stronger does it get? Not a lot let me tell you, my friend. This material will help with all of the knicks and dinks that your player will make on it.
Speaking of performance, there is a lot of pop on this thing. This is a pattern that you will see on Eason baseball bats. The pop comes from the bat speed and the strong material. Yes, this bat has a drop 8 length to weight ratio but that does not mean much since this is a one-piece baseball bat. I typically tell people that if the player is young, go for a one piece baseball bat. This is because it’s easier to swing and most of the time cheaper, which I care about a lot.
Overall this is an awesome baseball bat for any little one because of the military grade aluminum, one-piece design, and good price range.
