We spoke to a number of hitters, and read several user reviews, on the 2017 Easton Stealth Flex fastpitch bat.
Overall, the ratings are generally positive. Hitters like the immediate pop out of the wrapper and the good feel. There have a been a few durability complaints but only with bigger (older hitters) Sub 15U hitters like the balance too. And their parents can’t complain about the price. It is, truly, a smooth swinging two piece composite bat for a more reasonable price.

A less expensive two piece composite in the fastpitch space can be found in the Axe Avenge Lit as well as the DeMarini Vendetta. These are both big barrels and swing light. The Easton Flex comes in more size and drop options.

2017 Stealh Flex Construction
The Easton Stealth Flex uses the same material in most high end baseball bats Easton makes. They refer to it as TCT (Thermo Composite Technology). As well, they use the same CXN connective piece found on most of their high end bats. This helps remove sting on mishits.
In other words, the Easton Flex is made a lot like the high end bats in the baseball space that price out several hundred dollars more expensive.
Bat Sizing Options
The 2017 Easton Stealth Flex comes in a drop 9, 10 and drop 11. The drop, you know, is the numerical difference between the weight of the bat in ounces and the length in inches. So, a 32-inch drop 9 will have a scale weight of 23 ounces. That does not, however, indicate much about how hard it is to swing the bat. For that conversation look at our fastpitch swing weights.
