2015 Easton S3 Review

November 13, 2020 | by Bat Digest Review Team | @BatDigest

The Easton Power Brigade line is back in 2015 with the usual suspects. The Speed (S), XL, and MAKO lines will once again grace the plates of little leagues, high school and colleges around the country. Of course the big news is the MAKO TORQ with its spinning handle, but here we focus on the Easton S3.

The 2014 Easton S3 had mixed reviews. The light swinging aluminum stick was helpful for those who needed a very, very light swinging bat, but it missed a lot of folks expectations when the sweet spot in the bat was hard to find.

2015 Easton S3 Review

We found the 2014 S3 to have the sweet spot similar to those of a youth wood bat and a swing weight that was only fit for those who needed a severely light swing. The very light swing coupled with the tiny sweet spot made, in our opinion, the 2014 S2 a swing and miss. We usually recommended those looking for a one-piece aluminum bat to look elsewhere as we thought there were such bats with similar or better price points with a little more bang for your buck.

Easton has appeared to approach these issues with the 2015 version of the S3 and, at least at first glance, we think a step in the right direction. The claim is this new alloy allows for a larger sweet spot and increased durability without affecting swing weight. The barrel is noticeably larger. And since we believe, other bat manufacturers have been able to accomplish such feats in previous years, we don’t think Easton’s claim of increased durability with a larger barrel and light swing weight in a full aluminum is unfounded.
