2016 EASTON S3 Review : What’s new?
2016 Easton S3 is the newest successor to the line and aims to build upon the features that consumer’s felt missed the mark in previous years. It is available in youth, junior big barrel and big barrel (senior). From a recommendations standpoint, the 2016 Easton S3, like previous years iterations, fits the mold of a light swinging bat made for players who need more help in simply finding the ball at the plate than anything else. The Easton S3 has never been known for power and its potential to ring a few hands due to its ultra-stiff feel has left more than a few leaving this bat behind in search for more barrel per swing weight, less hand sting, and more power. I’d hesitantly recommend it for the struggling hitter who doesn’t see serious pitch speed (sub 40mph) but, other than that, would be hard pressed to get excited about the bat for anyone in particular.
