2024 Easton Hype Fire Review

2024 Easton Hype Fire Review

Welcome back fellow Headbangers to another exciting write-up! Today we will be discussing the VERY popular JBB and USSSA Baseball Bat, the 2024 Easton Hype Fire, which is offered as a JBB (-12), USSSA (-10), (-8), and (-5). Now, everyone has seen just how HOT out of the wrapper this bat is. Us as well as other retailers can’t keep our inventory in stock on these! But what makes these bats so hot out of the wrapper and what player will benefit the most from the Easton Hype Fire? That's what we will be discussing as well as some other details about the Hype Fire and what makes it so hot! 



As the image above shows, there are a few upgrades to the 2024 model for the Easton Hype Fire versus last year's model of the Easton Hype. One notable change is the Redesigned barrel producing a larger sweet spot, incredibly well balanced swing feel, and a lower MOI than earlier iterations producing faster swing speeds and better barrel control. The combination of a higher performing barrel, larger sweet spot available as well as very low MOI gives the player a truly unbelievable performance that will fit any player of all ages, from power hitters to contact hitters alike. 



Another notable feature in the 2024 Easton Hype Fire is the newly designed handle. Dubbed the “Optiflex Handle”, This handle has been specifically engineered PER drop and length to “optimize” the handle flex for each specific size producing the best performance and flexibility possible for every player. 

Mating the barrel to handle you will find Easton’s newly redesigned “Connextion Max” shock absorbing collar which utilizes an elastomer connector optimizing the overall feel of the bat as well as eliminating vibrations from mishits. To further eliminate the shocks and vibrations from mishits you'll find the Power Boost Knob. Not only does it greatly aid in the total reduction of vibrations, but it also benefits a player by providing more leverage on their swing and provides a nice comfortable feel. 



So to sum up with the Easton Hype Fire, this bat is HOT HOT HOT out of the wrapper. With a newly engineered, rigorously tested TCT barrel that provides low MOI, a balanced weight and a massive sweet spot as well as the finely optimized handle that has been properly tuned for each size to optimize the overall performance of the bat for each size available. The combination of all of this has produced arguably one of the hottest bats currently out on the market! 



With all that being said, the reviews and smiles on customers’ faces and the performance we have seen in real gameplay speaks for itself. So if you are trying to get your hands on the all new 2024 Easton Hype fire, you are in luck! Here at Headbanger Sports we have a healthy stock on hand in all sizes!
