2019 Easton Elevate Review

2019 Easton Elevate Review

Crowd Source: Bat Size Chart

After hitting with the 2019 Easton Elevate and discussing the bat with several vendors and players we write this review.

In short, the single piece aluminum bat is positioned in the value bat space and comes with a decent barrel size, good sizing options and, if you can square the ball up, impressive power. But, don’t confuse the Easton Elevate with a high end, travel player type bat in the single piece alumiā€¦ Jump to the full review.

Quick Review

In short, the single piece aluminum bat is positioned in the value bat space and comes with a decent barrel size, good sizing options and, if you can square the ball up, impressive power. But, don’t confuse the Easton Elevate with a high end, travel player type bat in the single piece aluminum space like the CAT 8 or Solo 619. The Elevate is built for the mostly serious rec player who is not willing to pony up more money than is reasonable.

Recommendations

We recommend the Elevate for the serious rec player that wants a new bat. If hand sting bothers you, or you prefer the barrel size associated with composite barrels, then the Easton Elevate is not for you. But, in the USSSA and USA space, if you don’t see too serious of pitch speed and want a new bat for 2019 then the Easton Elevate is as good as any.

BBCOR Elevate Recommendations
2019 Easton Elevate Review

The BBCOR version of the Elevate is likely the most recommendable of the three. The bat swings balanced for a single piece aluminum. And, at at least at some spots in the barrel, hits it as well as anything. Our exit speeds tracked real well with the bat with bigger hitters–especially when they could square one up.

USA Elevate Recommendations
2019 Easton Elevate Review

The 2019 Easton Elevate drop 11 is the most popular version of the bat. The drop 11 USA space doesn’t have that many options. Those looking for an inexpensive light swing in the USA space for 2019 should really like the bat. If you want something with more gumption then try out the drop 5—but that is made of big hitting kids in the 13U range that either rake or need an uber-durable BP or cold weather bat.

USSSA Elevate Recommendations
2019 Easton Elevate Review

A drop 9 single piece aluminum bat in the USSSA space doesn’t fall into a huge category of demand. Most USSSA players prefer a drop 10 in a bigger size (like a 32/22) over a drop 9 aluminum. Bigger hitters jump to the drop 8 as there are a number of options in that space too. In some sense the drop 9 is no man’s land. But, if you want a ho hum, get it done bat in the drop 9 space the USSSSA Easton Elevate is for you.

2019 vs 2016 Elevate

There was not a 2018 Easton Elevate. But, in terms of a single piece aluminum bat in the value space that covers a lot of sizing options, check Easton's S500. That is a 2016 bat---so it has been a few years. We expect the Easton Elevate to be around for a while.

Comparable Bats

There are a few single piece aluminum bats with the same amount of breadth as the Easton Elevate. The biggest competitor is, likely, Rawling’s 5150. There are others, like Slugger’s Vapor or DeMarini’s Uprising that fit well into this single piece value category.

We’ve hit with every 2019 Omaha 519 from Slugger. This series of bats, not changed much over the course of several years, is just what the traditionalist ball player prefers.

Research: 2019 Easton Elevate

2019 Easton Elevate Review

2019 Elevate Construction

Easton’s 2019 Elevate is a single piece aluminum bat. The end cap is also aluminum (many bat’s have end caps that are plastic). You should expect as good durability there is the space.

Bat Sizing Options

Easton’s 2019 Elevate comes in every league we can think of. You’ll find a BBCOR drop 3, USSSA Drop 9 and a USA drop 11. The drop, you should know, is the numerical difference between the length of the bat in inches and the weight of the bat in ounces.

  • USSSA drop 9
  • USA drop 11 and drop 5
