In putting together our 2016 Easton S500 Review we spent 2 hours in the cage with the BBCOR and Senior League Versions. The bats were hit among a half dozen different players and feedback was assembled. We further read a number of reviews online from sites we trust and consulted trusty YouTube for any additional information. Easton's site about the bat was also somewhat helpful. [ezcol_1half][su_heading]2016 Easton S500: Experience[/su_heading] We've spent a good two hours in the cage with Easton's 2016 Easton S500 and can readily report the bat performed to expectations. Which weren't very high to begin with. The S500 is an inexpensive bat in the one piece aluminum alloy range (7050 aircraft alloy) that has a number of wal-mart brand competitors imitate and make. Fresh out of the wrapper, the S500 may be the gem of those types of bats, but nothing more and probably exactly the same with a different paint job. We had a number of hand ringing experiences that were less than pleasant but expected from the traditional 7050 alloy. The barrel size, for that type of bat, wasn't terrible. Nothing in particular blew us out of the water when considering the bat's performance although we can say, for the price point, it is definitely a bat with brand recognition, a nice paint job and some good durability in a traditional 7050 aluminum aircraft alloy. The bat is hardly on anyone's best bat list---but the name brand and paint job make it one of the best selling bats in America. [/ezcol_1half] [ezcol_1half_end][su_heading]2016 Easton S500: Recommendtions[/su_heading] Those with no more than $100 and feel obligated to purchase a new bat should only seriously consider this bat if, and only if, they are comfortable with the hand sting associated from a one piece alloy bat---and the power that can come with it if hit right on the sweet spot. If you're still on the fence we suggest you review the performance vs non-performance bats in our "what bat has the most pop" article. Otherwise, we'd personally be more interested in spending that $100 on a used composite via ebay with a search like this. You'll have more success by searching outside the peak baseball interest times which are, roughly, August to November. If you're stuck inside the peak baseball bat buying times and have a $100 budget then we still think, if you are patient enough, could pick up a late model hybrid or single piece bat for around $100. But, if you need a bat now, only want to spend $100 and don't quite care about maximum performance then there is no shame in the 2016 Easton S500 (although you probably have a number of 7050 Aluminum Alloy options less expensive than $100).
