Easton bats are manufactured guaranteeing great performances when you take one to the plate, and the Easton SL15MK10B is no different. This bat is the redesigned and upgraded version of the Easton MAKO. It is aesthetically designed to have a lightning fast swing speed, but the stand-out feature on the SL15MK10B is its humongous barrel size. The bat is engineered with an absolute monster of a barrel attached to a thin, tapered handle. This build enables players to get an easy grip and create plenty of torque on their swings. With the SL15MK10B, balls will be sailing out of the park ever so often.
The SL15MK10B is a senior league bat and is part of the 2015 Easton Power Brigade Series. The bat has USSSA certification and is also 1.15 BPF certified.
The prime feature of the Easton SL15MK10B bat is that it has the largest barrel diameter there is in the game. Its monstrous and gigantic 2 3/4" barrel diameter is sure to wreak havoc at the plate and smash home run after home run. The enormous contact area means there's zero chance of missing the ball on a swing. When it comes to plate coverage, the SL15MK10B clearly rules them all.
The SL15MK10B is made of Easton's latest TCT Thermo Composite technology. The TCT Thermo Composite structure makes the bat very strong as well as very light. It also maximizes the sweet spot on the bat. Such a large contact area with an equally gigantic sweet spot creates a bat that can dismantle any pitcher's game. The lightness of the TCT composite also enables players to generate ultra-fast bat speeds in their swings.
The SL15MK10B has a two-piece design with a full composite structure. This makes the bat rigid. The two piece body gives more balance and sync between handle and barrel than a one piece design would allow for such a large barrel diameter. The bat has also been engineered to have a balanced swing weight and uniform weight distribution all over.
Another state of the art Easton innovation in the SL15MK10B is the CXN ConneXion technology. The CXN ConneXion joins the bat handle and barrel together. It ensures optimum energy use by transferring the dissipated swing energy back into the barrel for added power. The CXN also reduces impact vibrations for an enhanced batting experience. The Easton 2015 MAKO BBCOR is a collegiate bat which also features Easton's patented CXN ConneXion technology.
The SL15MK10B has an ultra-thin handle to finish off the bat's aesthetic architecture. The 29/32" handle makes the bat easy to grip. It is also installed with a Performance Diamond Grip which adds further comfort. The grip's tacky feel makes it easy to hold the bat for long periods. Players can now swing freely with all their might and be sure of vicious contact.
