New for 2013! Last season, Easton took the baseball diamond by storm when they released the inaugural Power Brigade Series. After its resounding success in all levels of baseball, Easton is now gearing up the Power Brigade for its debut on the fastpitch softball field! While the individual bats differ slightly from baseball to softball, the concept of the Power Brigade remains the same: Allow players to personalize their power. The fact is, that players draw power from different sources. Stronger players may want a bit more weight and endload to their bat, while smaller players want a little less weight and a balanced feel. Easton solves this problem by offering Power Brigade bats in two categories: The Speed Series and The XL Series. Speed Series bats (FS1, FS2, and FS3) are characterized by lighter length to weight ratios and balanced swing weights to produce faster swing speeds and more power as a result. XL Series bats (FX1 and FX2) are going to be a little heavier and have a enloaded feel, giving stronger players extra momentum through the zone and more power behind each swing. This bat, the FS1, is a two-piece fully composite design that features a barrel made from Easton's IMX Composite that uses ConneXion Technology to connect to an ultra-thin handle made from their SIC Black Carbon Composite. If you're looking for extra swing speed this season, there's only one logical choice - the bat that's built for SPEED to give YOU more POWER! Easton: Personalize Your Power! The FS1 is approved for play in ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA, and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

I'm 5' 3" 108 lbs. What size bat should I get?
Asked by Adri on May 14, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch in a 32" would be a good size for you, based on your size.
· May 14, 2013
Does this bat come in a 34" 26 oz. -8? I'm a mens fastpitch player and I would love to have it!
Asked by Gonzo on May 06, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch does not come in a -8. The 2014 DeMarini CF6: DXCF8 Fastpitch is a two-piece composite -8 that is of comparable quality to the FS1. We also have the 2013 Easton S1: SP13S1 Slow Pitch in a 34" 26 oz., that is designed and certified for play in ASA slow pitch softball.
· May 06, 2013
My daughter is 95 lbs. and 5', what size composite bat should I buy?
Asked by Runo on Apr 23, 2013
Based on her height and weight, we recommend a 31" model in the 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch bat. For further information on sizing, please visit our Bat Coach at http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/
· Apr 23, 2013
How does the 2013 Easton FS1: FSP13S1 compare to the 2014 DeMarini CF6 bat?
Asked by big lefty on Apr 21, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch would be very similar to the 2014 DeMarini CF6. The DeMarini CF6 will have the new Paradox Composite for a bigger, more responsive sweet spot. It will feel even lighter swinging then the Easton FS1.
· Apr 21, 2013
Does the FS1 have to be broken in? If so, what's the quickest way?
Asked by JuneBug on Apr 03, 2013
Yes, the 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch will need to be broken in. I would recommend 150-200 soft toss hits, giving the bat a 1/4 turn rotation with each hit.
· Apr 03, 2013
My daughter is 13 and is a excellent contact hitter with power. She loves the 2012 Stealth Speed. She likes the feel of the FS1 over the FX1. Will she lose distance on balls hit with the FS1?
Asked by Chuck on Apr 02, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch would be a great fit for a contact hitter. The FS1 will swing lighter, due to the balanced weight distribution, and it has has a larger drop than the 2013 Easton FX1: FP13X1 Fastpitch. The increased bat speed from the FS1 may help her generate more power.
· Apr 02, 2013
We've used the Synergy SCX24B 34" 24 oz. up until now and looking to upgrade to a similar bat. Which Easton model is the closest to this?
Asked by Mel on Mar 31, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch would be the closet to the Easton Synergy SCX24B.
· Apr 01, 2013
My daughter is 14 and a power hitter. She thinks the Easton Synergy 32" 22oz. is a little light. I am thinking about the FS1 33" 23oz. or is the FX1 a better fit?
Asked by kc on Mar 30, 2013
The 2013 Easton FX1 is going to be the bat that will be best for her. The FX1 is going to be best for a power hitter because of the end loaded feel.
· Mar 31, 2013
My daughter is a mix between power hitter and contact hitter. She needs to be able to get the bat through the zone pretty quick. She's 18 yrs old and going to college in the fall where all they use is the FS series. What bat would you recommend FS1, FS2 or FS3?
Asked by Curious Dad on Mar 19, 2013
Two piece bats like the 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch and the 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 Fastpitch are best suited for a contact hitter. They are both very balanced bats. The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 will be game ready. The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 will require a break-in period.
· Mar 19, 2013
We are looking to get the Easton FS1. How does it compare to the 2012 or 2013 Xeno?
Asked by Curious Dad on Mar 18, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch is a two-piece composite design just like the Xeno and will perform very similar. The Easton FS1 requires a break-in period, but the Xeno does not require a break-in.
· Mar 18, 2013
Is this the newer version/replacement of the 2012 Easton Stealth SSR3B?
Asked by Scott on Mar 13, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 has replaced the 2012 Easton Stealth Speed: FP11ST10.

What is the differance between the FS series and the FX? And do the FX only come in a -9?
Asked by jstew2009 on Mar 08, 2013
The Easton FS Series bats are evenly balanced models, while the Easton FX Series are end loaded models. The FX Series bats only come in -9.
· Mar 08, 2013
My daughter plays high school and travel ball 16 U. She typically pulls the ball to left field when hitting. She swing early and has a fast swing. Would this be an ideal bat for her?
Asked by Patricia on Mar 04, 2013
That is a difficult question for us to answer as much of the decision comes down to the personal preference of the player and what bat type of bat they have used previously with the most success. It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate. However, if she has above average strength and swing speed, a more endloaded bat like the 2013 Easton FX1: FP13X1.
· Mar 04, 2013
My daughter is a slapper and we are looking for a new bat. With our limited knowledge, we are interested in the 2013 Easton FS1:FP13S1 and also the DeMarini CF5: DXCFP. Which bat would make more sense? Also, is she better off with a one piece or two piece bat if she is not a power hitter?
Asked by She.runs.fast on Feb 24, 2013
I would suggest both these bats for sure. I also would suggest a two-piece bat. It will cut down the stinging and it will add flex through the zone that is helpful to a contact hitter.
· Feb 24, 2013
What is the difference between the FS1 Speed and the Stealth Speed?
Asked by KKMAR on Feb 21, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch features a SIC Carbon Composite handle that helps reduce vibration more than the previous model.
· Feb 22, 2013
How you decide if your daughter needs an endload or not? She is hitting with a DeMarini CF5 29in 18oz. I was looking into other bats. She is 11 and this is her second season fastpitch.
Asked by Steven on Feb 14, 2013
If she has above average swing speed and above average power, an endloaded bat is recommended. If she has average or below average strength and swing speed, a balanced bat is recommended.
· Feb 14, 2013
I was looking at this bat the oneX and 454. Which one or any bat would have the least amount of sting?
Asked by steve on Feb 01, 2013
With the 2013 Worth 454 Legit: FPL410 Fastpitch being a one-piece design, it will have a little more vibration than the FS1 or oneX. Both the 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch and the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS oneX: FP136 Fastpitch bats will be two-piece all composite designs. I would stick with the oneX for the LS-2X Composite and the T2 Technology.
· Feb 01, 2013
Will the 2013 Easton FS1 have a peak performance? Could the bat just be consistent in performance throughout its bat life or even get better in time? I've heard the Demarini CF5 peaks between 150 and 200 hits. I'm just curious if that would be expected with the Easton FS1 bat?
Asked by PC on Jan 30, 2013
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch is a full-composite bat, so it will require a break-in period of roughly 150-200 practice hits. One you break in the composite materials, the FS1 will be at peak performance.
· Jan 30, 2013
Last two bat purchases have been the Easton Synergy. My daughter is power hitter, and loves that bat. Which is most comparable to the Synergy?
Asked by Kalik on Jan 27, 2013
The Easton Synergy is going to be most comparable to the Easton FX1. The FX1 is perfect for power hitters, because it is end loaded.
· Jan 27, 2013
My Daughter is a Slap Hitter, which bat would be better for this, FS1 or FS2?
Asked by KC on Jan 07, 2013
Both the Easton FS1 and Easton FS2 are well balanced bats great for slap hitters. The FS1 is two-piece full composite. the FS2 is one-piece full composite. It's always recommend that a player stick with the same type of bat they have used in the past with the most success. In doing so, the player is much, much more likely to have continued success at the plate.
· Jan 07, 2013
Im thinking about buying this bat, but there is no reviews. Do you know if any exist? Don't want to drop $300 on a bat without knowing about it.
Asked by Michael on Jan 03, 2013
As of 1/3/2013 at 6:00pm CST, we have not received any customer reviews for the 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch bat. The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 replaced the Easton Stealth Speed and will be very similar in terms of performance.
· Jan 03, 2013
Why exactly is one (FS1) better for a contact hitter, and the other (FS2) better for a power hitter? Don't all players want more power?
Asked by sj on Jan 01, 2013
Both bats will produce power in different ways. The FS1 is a two-piece bat that will use its flex to produce power, while the FS2 is preferred by power hitters because of its stiff, one-piece design.
· Jan 02, 2013
How does the FS1 compare to the 2013 TPS oneX?
Asked by Kat on Dec 10, 2012
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch and the 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS oneX will be similar in performance and quality. They are both two-piece composite bats. They are very balanced and will provide a lot of flex. Perfect for a contact hitter. The oneX does use T2 technology to reduce vibration.
· Dec 10, 2012
My daughter is a big power hitter, what is the difference between the FS1 and the FS2? Which one do you recommend?
Asked by Joe on Dec 05, 2012
The 2013 Easton FS1: FP13S1 Fastpitch bat is a two-piece bat that is better suited for a contact hitter since it has more flex. The 2013 Easton FS2: FP13S2 is a one-piece bat and will be better for a power hitter.

Is there any difference between the stealth and this bat? Is it basically just a newer version of the stealth but with a new name?
Asked by Rona on Nov 12, 2012
