Easton Typhoon Youth Bat Review

August 7, 2019 | by Bat Digest Review Team | @BatDigest

Easton’s Typhoon Youth Bat is a single piece aluminum made for the budget conscious USA Bat player.

Quick Review

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.

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.

This isn’t to poke fun or mock anyone who does use the bat. In fact, its a perfectly reasonable choice for a new player looking to get their feet wet in a local rec league. Serious players looking for as much out of their bat, however, will be disappointed.

Since it only runs a 2 1/4 when the standard allows up to a 2 5/8 we’d highly recommend looking elsewhere. If budget is an issue check in the best cheap baseball bats section we keep up to date consistently.

Bat Review

S50

Look, we rarely ever review bats like this on our site because they aren't any different than the hoards of budget bats found at major retailers across the world. The 2014 Easton S50 (YB14S50), along with its cohorts hanging in big box stores, has one thing in mind with its production: how cheaply can we make a baseball bat in the youth space. Apparently, pretty cheap. This Easton S50 Bat Review discusses the sizing, construction, comparable bats, and recommendations of this youth-sized baseball bat.

2016

S3

For 2016, Easton Bats moved their BBCOR line from the S3 series and into the Z-Core brand of names. They also added a Z-Core for little league and senior barrel sizes. However, in a few offerings, they kept the Speed (S) and End Loaded (XL) names, including, as pertains to this review, the 2016 Easton S3.

2018 Typhoon 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.

Bat Sizing Options

The Typhoon is a drop 12 bat with a max length of 32-inches. The drop, you should know, is the numerical difference between the length of the bat in inches and the weight of the bat in ounces. So, a 32-inch drop 12 should weigh around 20 ounces.

The 2019 version comes in as short as a 29 and as long as a 32 inch. This weight of 17 to 20 ounces fits well for 8 to 10 year olds.

The bat is a USA Bat. This means it has a certain performance standard that allows it to be used in USA leagues. To see more of those see here.

This a a bat for 9 year olds who grow. For 12 to 15 games a year is it really worth 160 bucks?
