    The Rival is what I'm using this season!

    BBCOR bats are what my team has to use, and THE RIVAL takes little away from my old bat. Like the feel and balance.

    A little too much on top

    Have to be really strong and quick to swing this bat because of it being so top-heavy.

    A great bat for the price. I purchased it on clearance, due to it being a previous year model. Feels great, and you can't beat the price on a top quality bat.

      Not the best

            Comments about Easton 2011 Rival -3 Adult Baseball Bat (BBCOR):

            This bat was alright when I used it. The barrel is very top heavy and only a stronger batter should use this. A big problem is that after 100 live pitches of using it in the cage, the bat snapped in half even though I hit the ball on the sweet spot. Cheaply made but has decent pop.

            This bat is simply meant for strong hitters. weak batters will not like this bat. the bat is top heavy but the ball flies of the bat. WARNING: do not buy this bat unless you have decent strength and/or good bat speed. Otherwise you will resent buying this bat. Overall, great bat for a great price.

              More Pop than the Demarini models! Has a good amount of Pop, but the sweet spot is more towards the end of the bat much like a C271 wood model. I love this bat. The end cap busted on me during a game last week and I had to send it in for a new one, but it was worth it compared to the other BBCOR models.

              It's a BBCOR, its pretty much wood that doesn't break, I don't love it, but for what it is, it's not too bad

                Softball Bat Sizing

                To find the correct bat length for your softball-playing daughter, have her stand straight up with her arms to the side. Place a ruler to her side with the start of the ruler (the "0" mark) on the ground. Read the measurement at the end of her wrist, just where the hand meets the forearm. As a general rule, this measurement indicates the perfect bat length for her.

                Another sizing method for Baseball and Softball

                Another great means for determining bat size is what we'll call the wingspan method. Have your son or daughter stand up tall with their arms straight out (arms should be parallel to the ground as if they were trying to mimic an airplane). Measure from the very center of their chest out to the tip of their fingers. That measurement will give you the ideal bat length.

                It's always best to try to size using a variety of methods to come up with their ideal. For youth which are still growing, we recommend that you go with the longest length obtained through the various sizing methods. We often use the break of the wrist method (described in the softball bat sizing above) along with this method and use the longer of the two.
