Easton Mako Beast Big Barrel Baseball Bat
The Easton Mako Beast (Big Barrel) baseball bat is another great example of Thermo Composite Technology (TCT) at its finest.
With its huge 2 ¾” barrel and –10 drop weight, the swing speed for this composite two-piece is very impressive. Since it is a lighter bat, not every swing will clear the outfield. But when you do connect with the Beast, you’ll certainly know about it.
The Easton Mako Beast is another great product from the Mako line. It’s a beefy upgraded bat that is perfect for big hitters in leagues that do allow a 2 ¾” barrel size. With a drop 10 weight and a meaty barrel, when the Mako Beast connects, it really connects.
This baseball bat also furnishes Thermo Composite Technology—the most effective barrel technology for increasing swing speed while maintaining significant girth. With its larger and cleaner sweet spot, the Mako Beast is really made for big hitters who like clearing the outfielders. You will still get significant distance if you strike at the end of your barrel, but since it is a drop 10 weight, there is not the heavy barrel behind it to really send a ball that isn’t perfectly struck.
Another feature of the Mako Beast is its composite handle. Made with Easton Conation technology, the two-piece composite design reduces vibration and takes away much of the sting effect felt in your hands.
