Easton Mako – Catcher’s Gear Review

Tuesday, November 12th, 2013

The Mako Catcher’s Set is designed with one thing in mind and that is speed– a common theme when it comes to any of the Mako products debuted by Easton this year.

The Mako Catcher’s Set comes with 3 pieces (Helmet, Chest Protector and Shin Guards) and it is made in 3 sizes (Adult, Intermediate and Youth).

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 Chest Protector 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 Easton Mako – Is it worth the hype?

Monday, November 11th, 2013

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.
