Easton is attempting to revolutionize the bat world with the introduction of the 2015 Easton Mako Torq Baseball Bat. They will have a limited production run of these bats and the BBCOR will run $550, but the imagination on their R&D team is shining through. In a world where BBCOR has sort of leveled the playing field, Easton took to other means to enhance performance of their already top-of-the-line bats.
So, how does it feel? My impression when being told about this bat was that there was no way this would work. Then I put the Mako Torq in my hands. The natural movement of my hands when swinging a bat was made easier by the rotating Torq handle. The Torq handle rotates 360 degrees, but only about a quarter turn was necessary with my swing. My reservations of the bat rolling over or slipping out of my hand were gone. The slight rotation made the swing feel natural and the hand turn effortless.
I can’t wait to get the Mako Torq in our customer’s hands to hear their reviews. We have the 2015 Easton Mako Torq on the site now, with a first ship date of September 5th. Only a limited number of these innovated bats are being made, so pre-order yours today before they’re all gone! Baseball Rampage proudly carries the entire 2015 Easton bat lineup.

Year after year, Easton continues to deliver the most technologically advanced baseball and softball equipment and this year is no different with the brand new 2014 Power Brigade baseball bats. This new series of high end baseball bats consists of the Speed Series baseball bats, the XL series baseball bats and last, but certainly not least, the super hot 2014 Easton Mako baseball bat. The Speed Series bats feature an evenly balanced design for fast hands through the hitting zone and a two-piece design that maximizes energy transfer, while the XL series has a monster barrel design. Of the Power Brigade bats, the XL series baseball bats have the most massive sweet spots while maintaining a low moment of inertia. Finally, the Mako series features the ultimate combination of speed and mass so elite players can have the best of both worlds. Of all the bats, it features the fastest swing speed as well as a massive barrel. All of these top of the line baseball bats come in BBCOR, big barrel and youth sizes, allowing players of all ages to personalize their power and performance at the plate. Luckily, Baseball Rampage carries them all and offers fast, free shipping and free return shipping, if you aren’t completely satisfied with your purchase. If you aren’t sure which size bat is right for you, consult our baseball bat buying guide.

The Helmet is designed to be snug to the head to prevent any rotation, therefore eliminating any chances that vision may be obstructed. The rear cap of the helmet is designed for high speed removal which allows for the helmet to roll off the head. This is crucial for times a catcher needs to react quickly to make split second decisions on the field. The Mako helmet is also equip with a shock absorbing frontal cage to help take away some of the impact when being hit by a ball.
The ChestProtector is lightweight and moves with your body. The Mako chest protector has wedges that will expand and contract when there is any type of movement therefore preventing any discomfort during each play. Within the chest protector, there is shock absorbing foam to help mute some of the impact received from the baseball and collisions. There are also large ventilation holes that makes the chest protector unquestionably one of the most breathable on the market for 2014.
The Shin Guards fit so well to the body that very little in game adjustments will be needed. The Conic Knee Cap design adds a considerable amount of stability while blocking. The inner knee pad provides much needed comfort to catchers when slamming their knees to the ground. Just like the helmet and chest protector, there is a great amount of ventilation within the padding of the shin guards that makes them very breathable during each practice and game.

The Mako is the latest bat developed by Easton within their Power Brigade series. It made it’s debut appearance at the Little League World Series and has since been one of the most talked about bats on the market for 2014.
Easton is already well known for the S1 and XL1. The S1 provides some of the quickest bat speed through the zone of practically any baseball bat on the market. The XL1 is designed with a longer barrel which adds a massive sweet spot, which helps distribute more power to the hitter. Now, take those two bats and make one and you’ll have the Mako.
The Mako is the best of both worlds. The Mako is one of the fastest bats, with one of the biggest barrels through the zone. Even with the bigger barrel it still feels light when swinging it. Easton uses their new TCT or Thermo Composite Technology, which contributes to adding a massive sweet spot. The Mako has a faster swing speed than the S1 and a barrel size that matches up to the XL1. The Mako is a 2-piece design, built with Easton’s patented connection technology which maximizes energy transfer while isolating the barrel from the handle killing vibration and sting.
It’s hard to come across a baseball bat with this massive of a sweet spot that can also generate a considerable amount of bat speed. Without question, the Easton Mako is worth the hype and the price.
