EASTON SPORTS WILL REPLACE ANY DEFECTIVE HIGH PERFORMANCE BAT FOR 1 YEAR FROM THE DATE OF PURCHASE UNDER THE CONDITIONS LISTED BELOW.
1 YEAR BAT WARRANTY FROM DATE OF PURCHASE
The Easton bat warranty covers all manufacturing defects resulting from normal field usage including: Denting, Cracking, Breaking, Loose or Detached End Cap or Rattling. This is a high performance product, designed to deliver maximum performance within the limits of the association rules. In order to deliver peak performance, this bat is not indestructible. In fact it's useful life is partly determined by the number of hard hits it takes over its lifetime. For this reason, this bat is designed with the intent of individual use. It is not designed to be a team bat. This warranty is limited to one bat per original purchase.
Easton Sports reserves the right to refuse warranty service to any person who, in the sole discretion of Easton Sports, abuses products and/or our warranty policy.
PROPER BAT CARE & USE INSTRUCTIONS
To extend the life of your bat, Easton Sports suggests the following:
• Use with leather covered balls only
• Limit the bat to your individual use only
• Rotate the bat 1/4 turn each at-bat
To clean your bat, use only mild soap and water.
WARNING: Hitting metal cleats, rocks, or anything other than a ball can damage your bat and will void the warranty.
WARNING: While metal and/or composite bats are more durable than wood bats, these bats can break, so use care. Further, deep scratches, nicks or dents can cause these bats to break at any time. Metal and/or composite bats should be replaced approximately every two years assuming normal usage. Breakage can cause injury to the batter, other players or spectators. Inspect your bat frequently for cracks, nicks, dents, surface damage or excessive wear. DO NOT USE BAT IF EXCESSIVELY WORN OR DAMAGED.
WARNING: Avoid using your bat in cold weather. Temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit ( 15 degrees Celsius ) increase the hardness of balls significantly.

• Bats that have been used in temperatures under 60°F (15°C)
• Bats purchased from non-authorized Easton dealers or individuals
