There are only a few brands in the world that are immediately synonymous with the products and services they provide. When people think of McDonald's they’re thinking of fast food, when they think of Ford it’s trucks, and when people think of Easton they think of its baseball bats and softball bats. That’s because Easton has spent decades in the driver’s seat of bat innovation and performance. Some of the top baseball, fastpitch softball, and slow pitch softball bats to ever play the game have come directly from Easton. It is, without a doubt, one of the biggest bat manufacturers in the world. This is why the Bat Experts at JustBats have taken the time to develop a shopper’s guide for the best Easton bats in 2023 and beyond.

Best Easton Bats
Over 100 years ago in 1922, James Easton began making wooden bows and arrows in his garage. Fast forward to today, and Easton bats are among the most popular in the world. Popular models like the Easton Hype Comp, Easton Ghost, Easton Stealth, and many others are all available at JustBats. To provide a summary of this list, we're going to start with Easton baseball bats. Then we'll get into Easton fastpitch bats followed by Easton slow pitch bats. Last, but certainly not least, we're going to outline our favorite exclusive Easton bats that you can only find at JustBats. Let's dive in.
Best Easton BBCOR Bats
Looking for the best BBCOR baseball bats? Easton is loaded with both alloy and composite BBCOR bats for your next season. To help you pick out your favorite(s) we’ve taken the time to list a few of the most popular BBCOR bats from Easton below.
The Easton Hype Comp is the most exciting bat in the 2023 BBCOR bat lineup. Built with a lightning-fast (balanced) swing weight and a highly-responsive composite profile, the Easton Hype Comp is perfect for any style of hitter. We do recommend hitting ~100-150 balls with it before you break it out for game action. But apart from that, this is one of the best baseball bats of the year.
Get the best of both worlds with Easton’s top hybrid BBCOR baseball bat. Loaded with seemingly endless power, the Easton Encore delivers a hot-out-of-the-wrapper alloy barrel alongside a smooth-swinging composite handle. This combination allows hitters to maximize their power potential without sacrificing swing comfort. If you are interested in swinging the new Encore from Easton, we encourage you to try it out with our 30-day Bat Assurance Program now.
Shopping for young ball players can be a challenge. To help alleviate some of the struggles, we have tasked our team of Bat Experts to help list a couple of the hottest Easton youth baseball bats on the market. Keep in mind, we have only chosen the most popular youth baseball bats for this list. If you are looking for more options, we have a full selection of Easton youth bats at JustBats.
Not interested in breaking in your next youth bat? The Easton Alpha ALX is the top alloy USSSA baseball bat from Easton in 2023. Hitters have already started to provide us with feedback regarding this one-piece aluminum bat. It offers hitters an easy-to-swing balanced swing weight alongside an ultra-durable barrel profile to navigate through the rigors of a baseball season. In summation, the 2023 Easton Alpha ALX is one of the best USSSA baseball bats that money can buy.
As hitters get older and stronger they tend to gravitate towards alloy baseball bats. This is because the stiffness of alloy barrels allows for their strength to transfer through the baseball with each swing. The more strength applied to the ball, the more power you’ll see on contact. That’s why we see so many hitters choosing to swing the Easton Encore as they start swinging drop-5s in preparation for BBCOR bats in high school.
The 2023 Easton Encore delivers both an alloy barrel and a composite handle (which helps reduce vibrations) to offer hitters a comfortable, yet powerful combination. Plus, considering it sports the ultra-hot USSSA stamp of approval, the 2023 Easton Encore USSSA baseball bat is arguably the hottest baseball bat on the planet.
The 2023 Easton ADV 360 gives hitters complete control of their swings. It offers junior high players a drop-5 USA baseball bat with ample amounts of power and comfort. Look for the Easton ADV 360 to be one of the most popular USA baseball bats of the 2023 baseball season. Shop for yours today at JustBats!
For hitters that are in search of a lightweight, inexpensive bat for USA baseball, we recommend taking a quick look at the Alpha ALX. Built with ultra-lightweight alloy materials, this drop-11 USA bat enables top-notch barrel control and better results with every swing. We recommend the Easton Alpha ALX to any little leaguer between the ages of 7 - 9.
For years, fastpitch softball players have loved swinging Easton fastpitch bats. From the booming sound on contact to the jaw-dropping distance on home runs, Easton has redefined the way we look at fastpitch bats. Today, the Easton Ghost series remains among the elite fastpitch softball bats in the game. And if you were to venture to any softball complex around the country, there is zero doubt that you would see these bats everywhere.
One of Easton’s best fastpitch bats is the Easton Ghost Tie Dye edition. Still sporting the same impressive performance of previous editions of the Ghost, the new Ghost Tie Dye also features the most eye-catching graphics we’ve ever seen. But don’t get up thinking it’s just a pretty bat, the Easton Ghost Tie Dye has bad intentions for any pitch that dares cross the plate.
Easton Ghost Tie Dye Review
Pros - “Hot right out of the wrapper, the feel before, during, and after contact is awesome.”
Cons - “We’ll see how long this one lasts but you know what you are getting yourself into when you choose this bat so as long as the good outweighs the bad then it is what it is.”
It's #gottabetheghost. For years, fastpitch players all across the nation have put their trust in the Easton Ghost series, and for good reason. This drop 11 model is powerful, yet balanced. Experience the ease of use during your next at-bat and choose Easton.
Easton Ghost Advanced Review
Pros - “Lightweight, great pop, great bat. Big sweet spot, even the small part of the bat has pop.”
Cons - “Has a little break-in period that ca be done in batting practice a few times, but once it's hot it's hot!!!"
With each pitch arriving around 20-30 mph, slow pitch softball bats must provide noticeable levels of performance on every swing.

It comes loaded with massive power potential and a bat profile designed to maximize every swing you take. If you are looking for a top slow pitch softball bat in 2023, the Easton Stealth has to be given serious amounts of consideration.
One of the legendary bat lineups in slow pitch history is back for another round of utter dominance. The Easton Salvo has made a living on testing the size of any slow pitch field it ever takes an at-bat on. Look for this two-piece slow pitch softball bat to be swung by some of the game’s most elite softball players during the 2023 season.

Easton Stealth Review
Pros - “I definitely prefer the Zero Strain 1431 Handle. Haven't felt any vibration at all! – Feels like there some real pop in the bat, but I'm still breaking it in. Been making pretty hard contact so far though.”
Cons - “Just being nitpicky, but it would've been cool for the graphics to look just like the Stealth bats in the mid '00s; those were black.”
