Of all the fastpitch softball bats in the FS series the Easton FS500 is the lightest of the crowd. This series within the series features a drop 13 length to weight ratio. This would seemingly make the bat cost more, because they have to put more work in to shave off the extra couple of ounces. But, Easton continually finds new ways of innovations to benefit their customers. They do this in the Easton FS500, which uses 7050 aircraft alloy which is a lighter metal. So, because of Easton's innovation, players can get their drop 13 bat. This alloy is also extremely durable, you do not lose any durability because it is lighter.
