This is a better deal than the new model year version!
Easton Z-Core XL 2-5/8" BBCOR Bat -3oz (2016)
MAD MAX says:
This is another series from Easton called Z-CORE HMX. The Z-CORE HMX is an all-alloy bat. This is for the kid that likes the feel of the one-piece technology in their hands. A lot of kids last year liked that one-piece bat. There were two bats that were very popular last year the: CAT6 and the Velo. This new bat will compete with those bats. Easton made this bat in an end-loaded model and balanced. This one is the end-loaded model and already I can tell this will be a great one as well. Easton had a bat in 2013 called the XL3 and this bat replaces that model. This bat is for an older, stronger kid, like a junior or senior in high school that has the power to flat out swing a man's bat. The XL model will have a more end-loaded feel so you need to make sure you can handle it. This bat is a -3, which means if it is 32 inches it will be 29 ounces, and as we go up in inches we go up in ounces. Great bat bringing back a fan favorite in the XL.
END-LOADED ONE-PIECE ALLOY Z-CORE DESIGN
End-Loaded barrel design has a higher Swing Weight Index for more mass behind the ball
HMX Hyperlite Matrix Alloy barrel for expanded sweet spot and greater Durability
Z-CORE Internal core technology produces more power a massive sweet spot
Thin 31/32" tapered handle with all new 1.2mm HYPERSKIN Grip
The BBCOR formula provides a better measure of the bat's performance and therefore allows the rules committee and bat testing laboratories to better predict field performance based on lab tests. The goal is that non-wood bats that meet this new standard will perform similarly to wood bats. All BBCOR bats will incorporate a logo mark once certification approval is granted. This mark will be consistent across every approved bat design so umpires will easily identify approved bats.

We also sell bats out of our physical store, so sometimes things sell out before we can get them off the Web site.
Limited quantities available. Prices subject to change without notice. Like we say, if it's on the site, it's in the warehouse -- just SOMETIMES it might have some other player's name on it! If you snooze, you lose, so ORDER YOURS NOW!
