The MAKO is a legendary bat. Over the years, we’ve hit with every single one on multiple occasions with multiple hitters. Below is our what we wrote about each individual Easton Mako review.

2017 Easton Mako Torq

$450
(6.7)

We have covered Easton’s TORQ-handled bats since their release over two years ago. There is not a version we haven’t hit, seen hit or tested extensively. Although not available at major vendor sites, Easton is producing the TORQ in several versions for 2017 directly on their site. Count this as our 2017 Easton TORQ reviews overview.

2017 Easton Mako Hyperlite

$199
(6.4)

Easton’s late season release of a single piece composite bat with a monster barrel in the senior league space is a surprise. And with the loss of Combat due to business troubles, it is a very welcome surprise. Although Easton has not made this claim, we suspect this new Easton MAKO Beast Hyperlite is, at least in some measure, a response to the lack of single-piece composite bats on the market. The Hyperlite, in particular, is a limited size release. It represents the lightest swinging Easton bat in their 2017 line up.

2016 Easton Mako Torq XL

$349.95
(7.7)

We’ve spent over 10 hours in the cage collectively with the MAKO TORQ brand of bats—including the BBCOR, Little League (youth), and Big Barrel versions of the XL version. We’ve also seen the rotating handled bat at the plate at least one hundred times and have spoken to nearly anyone we’ve seen who uses the bat, about their experience. Additionally, we’ve spent time on the phone with Easton employees discussing the intricacies of the MAKO TORQ.

2016 Easton Mako XL

$349.95
(7.20)

The 2016 Easton MAKO XL (Amazon Price Check) is a two-piece composite bat built with an end load. It is the third heaviest swing Easton makes behind the Z-Core XL and Z-Core Hybrid XL. The bat’s two-piece design is based on the same chassis as the famed Easton MAKO so it carries the same oversized barrel and peak performance. For sure, the 2016 MAKO XL is a top-shelf performance composite built at the edge of allowable limits.

2015 Easton Mako Torq

$499.95
(8.1)

I was pursuing little league baseball bat videos on youtube on a Friday night, because when you have 7 children this is what you do, and I came across a video for a bat called the Easton MAKO Torq.

2015 Easton Mako

$299.95
(10)

After almost 5 years of experience with the 2015 Easton Mako we have more than a few things to say. But, to put it quickly, the bat is legendary. The 1.15 2 1/4 barrel pre-USA bat was the stuff dreams are made of—and still are. It is still a legal bat in USSSA play—the smaller barrel does not disqualify it. However, the bat is not allowed in USA play.
