Easton Fire Flex Loaded USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat (SP18FF2L)

The Fire Flex Loaded uses Easton's second generation Flex barrel technology to ensure explosive pop and a solid feel during every at-bat, without the worry of a break-in period. With a re-engineered, new layup that provides 240-250 compression, this slow pitch bat is hot out of the wrapper and primed for power.

Easton Fire Flex Loaded Review

Pros: "I typically swing Miken, but when a teammate picked up the new DC-41, I decided to take a shot on the Fire Flex (27 oz). After the break-in, this is just as good as the two-piece Psycho from last year. Hot barrel; strong flex at the connection. Feels similar to something in between the old B1.0 or L1.0 (end load isn't crazy heavy). By the second game of the night, most of the guys started picking this one up. Easton's grip also seems like it will hold up well and not shred that quickly like others."

Cons: "I don't ever really expect "hot out of the wrapper" performance from any bat, and I felt like the barrel and connection on this one was a bit stiff for maybe 150 swings (Indoors / real softballs). End load in a 27 feels more like the half ounce end load of other brands' 27 oz bats. In case that's not your thing."
