The Easton XL series Baseball Bats are designed with a bigger barrel to give you a massive sweet spot! The SL14X18 is a two-piece composite bat with both an IMX composite barrel, and a SIC Black Carbon composite handle.
The end loaded, minus 8 ounce length to weight ratio 2014 Easton XL1 is built and produced for the baseball batter who is strong enough to swing a slightly heavier and end loaded baseball bat. When a batter chooses an XL series bat from Easton, he will be rewarded with a longer barrel and sweet spot, compared to the Easton Speed series bats. If you think the XL Series may be too heavy for you, check out the Speed Series equivalent, the S1 big barrel.
The two piece design gives the player two advantages: A more optimized energy transfer, and substantial vibration reduction.
The handle is stiff, and made from the exclusive Easton SIC Black Carbon composite, while the barrel is more elastic, and made from their IMX composite fiber material. The 100% composite materials used in the handle and the barrel allow the XL1 Senior League bat to be more balanced than an all things being equal aluminum alloy bat. For the player who desires the most absurdly large barrel in the game the XL1 fits the bill. Providing composite barrel and handle conneXion technology this bat is a clean up hitters dream.

Bought this bat for my 10yr old boy who loves it (29/21). Used the 2013 S1 big barrel last year (30/10) and was a little worried about the XL1 being to end loaded so I bought the shorter yet slightly weightier XL1. Perfect fit and the amount of power generated of the S1 is big! If I would have went with the 30" XL1 it would have been too heavy. S1 is a great bat but was just looking for more power and we got it now. (Posted on 1/22/14)
Incredible pop with almost no vibration. Massive sweet spot. Believe the reviews. Bat is that good. Son driving ball 20-30 feet further right out of wrapper. Hits like it should be illegal-but it is not! Need good mechanics to swing though - moderately end-loaded. (Posted on 1/22/14)
Insane pop if your kids is not that strong don't get it (Posted on 1/22/14)
Exactly what my son needed as he is not quite prepared to take up the -5 (Posted on 1/22/14)
I wasn't sure my son was able to swing this compared to another -10 he has. Once you see it, the barrel is the first thing you notice. HUGH barrel and sweet spot. (Posted on 12/10/13)
