Models Overview

It uses a 2 1/4 barrel (down from the 2 5/8 allowed) as to generate a super light swing weight. The bat is for players just starting out their careers and like the paint job. It is for parents who don’t want to pay very much for a bat and don’t think bat performance is something their player should worried about.


General Recommendations

The Typhoon is a no frills bat. That is, there is really nothing special about it. You should expect nothing short of a pretty simple bat. The people that tend to like it are budget conscience and are new to baseball.

Reviews By Model

Comparable Bats

There are very few single piece aluminum bats in the drop 12 space. If you can swing a bit heavier bat, and a bit more in the budget, we suggest you take a close look at the Slugger 518 Omaha. Otherwise, if your budget is firm and/or you really need a drop 12 the Easton Typhoon is as good a bat as any that you’ll find at the price. Easton’s impressive distribution and the drop 12’s unique price point and swing weight make it a very popular option. It is is one of the more popular bats you’ll find for these very reasons.

Construction

The 2019 Easton Typhoon is a single piece aluminum. This differs from other bats that either use a full composite construction or a two piece design. A ful piece aluminum bat is the most inexpensive bat type on the market.

It does have a unique Easton grip that is a 2.2mm. It’s thickness is considerably more than any other grip on the market. Even Lizard Skin’s thickest grip is only 1.5mm.
