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.
