Easton's Typhoon Youth Bat is a single piece aluminum made for the budget conscious USA Bat player. It uses a 2 1/4 barrel (down from the 2 5/8 allowed) as to generate a super light swing weight. The bat is for players just starting out their careers and like the paint job. It is for parents who don't want to pay very much for a bat and don't think bat performance is something their player should worried about.
2019 Easton Typhoon Youth Bat Sizing
The Typhoon is a drop 12 bat with a max length of 32-inches. 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. So, a 32-inch drop 12 should weigh around 20 ounces.
The 2019 version comes in as short as a 29 and as long as a 32 inch. This weight of 17 to 20 ounces fits well for 8 to 10 year olds.
The bat is a USA Bat. This means it has a certain performance standard that allows it to be used in USA leagues. To see more of those see here.
2019 Easton Typhoon Youth Bat Recommendations
The Typhoon is a no frills bat. That is, there is really nothing special about it. You should expect nothing short of a pretty simple bat. The people that tend to like it are budget conscience and are new to baseball.
This isn't to poke fun or mock anyone who does use the bat. In fact, its a perfectly reasonable choice for a new player looking to get their feet wet in a local rec league. Serious players looking for as much out of their bat, however, will be disappointed.
Since it only runs a 2 1/4 when the standard allows up to a 2 5/8 we'd highly recommend looking elsewhere. If budget is an issue check in the best cheap baseball bats section we keep up to date consistently.

2019 Easton Typhoon Comparable Bats
There are very few single piece aluminum bats in the drop 12 space. If you can swing a bit heavier bat, and a bit more in the budget, we suggest you take a close look at the Slugger 518 Omaha. Otherwise, if your budget is firm and/or you really need a drop 12 the Easton Typhoon is as good a bat as any that you'll find at the price. Easton's impressive distribution and the drop 12's unique price point and swing weight make it a very popular option. It is is one of the more popular bats you'll find for these very reasons.
