In their slow pitch softball bat line up Easton has introduced yet another series, the Easton Raw Power bats. These bats come in a variety of sizes, weights, and colors. The Easton Raw Power B2.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat is the bat I will concentrate on today.
Easton Raw Power B2.0 for 2013 bat has Easton’s exclusive, SIC black carbon fiber handle which reduces vibration, and the bat has a better overall feel. Because of the SIC carbon fiber composite in the handle, you feel very little vibration and maximum stiffness is still maintained all through the bat. There is no loss of energy throughout a swing.
To get a feel of how the SIC technology worked, I hit a few softballs off the end of the bat and also tried to hit some too close to the hands. There was some vibration in the one piece Raw Power B2 on the bad swings; however, I was distracted by how well I did hit the softball on the deliberate bad swings. In truth, I didn’t notice much of anything else.
I was an enthusiast of the Easton Raw Power B2.0 starting with my first swing. I was hitting the whole lot hard, and was reminded more of a shaved bat. Wherever I hit the ball on the barrel, it flew off the Raw Power B2.0.
The design of the Easton Raw Power B2.0 has quality engineering going from the 13.5 inch barrel to the new gauze grip tape. The B or L the in Easton Raw Power model numbers is to distinguish between Balanced or End Loaded in weight allocation.
It felt great to swing the Easton Raw Power B 2.0 Slow Pitch Softball Bat through the zone because it is so well balanced. There is a lot control on a bat that I would say is a joy to swing.
