The Easton Sapphire is part of Easton’s new Diamond Gem series. This fastpitch softball bat is sure to impress, and not only because it’s built out of 100% 7050 aircraft grade aluminum alloy. The sapphire is extremely lightweight and easy to handle, with a massive sweet spot, so you can hit the ball hard and far every time. And with its one-piece design, this bat feels extremely solid and has minimal flex upon the impact of the ball. The Sapphire is also comfortable in the hands due to its cushioned all-sports grip.
The Sapphire comes with a -12 ounce length to weight ratio, and swings super fast so you can get to the ball in time when facing off against pitchers who know how to throw fast. (After all, this is a fastball bat.) The ultra-thin handle diametre ensures that you can keep a firm grip no matter how hard you swing.
This bat is certified for play in most leagues, including the ASA, NSA, USSSA, ISF, AND ISA.

I bought this bat for my daughter, who’s 5 foot 6, and this bat works fantastic! It’s extremely lightweight, and comes at a great value. It looks nice and hits great, and has a satisfying sound when it makes connection with the ball. I also think it’s cool that it’s constructed out of 7050 aircraft grade alloy. Overall, my daughter has been very satisfied with the bat—and that makes me satisfied. I would recommend this bat to other players.
Great value. My daughter who plays 10U has been using it for two seasons now, and the bat has held up great. It’s sturdy and robust, and most importantly, seems to hit very well. My daughter has been having one of her best seasons so far. Compared to other bats she’s used in the past, the Sapphire is really light and easy for her to control. I’m not sure if it’s that, or the big sweet spot, but she’s been able to hit balls like never before. I will definitely consider getting this same model of bat for my youngest daughter too when she comes of age (unless something better comes out in that time.) If you’re considering this bat, I’d say go for it!
