Pros: None

Cons: It is very uncomfortable in the hand and it starts to slope down the barrel at the 50 in 550. So you dont have a big sweet spot.

Pros: Good compromise in drop ratio for a younger player looking for a slightly heavier bat. My son is a tall lanky 9 year old and picked this model over a couple of more expensive models based on the feel of it.

Cons: None yet.

My son has been practicing all winter with a wood bat 33", -6 per the tape measure and weight scale. I can't decide from the [s450 - 32" - 8] or the [S650 - 32" - 5 ] because I've been reading that the Easton bats are docking 2 to 3 oz. over weight. Can you guys please place the bat in a scale and confirm. Asked by Jecko

A player will always benefit from swinging the heaviest bat as possible. Typically, a -8 is what would be recommended by the time a player enters 7th grade and then move up to a -5 for 8th grade. This is to help ease the transition to high school and BBCOR bats which are all -3 length to weight ratio. As for the true weight of the 2018 Easton S550 -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S5508, this bat will come in at 1.6 ounces heavier, the 2018 Easton S450 -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S4508 at the same 1.6 ounces heavier and the 2018 Easton S650 -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18S6505 at roughly 0.3 ounces heavier.

My grandson will be 14 in July, he is 5'9" and 145 lbs. I just bought him a 33"-30 oz bat which is good for slower pitchers but a little heavy for faster pitchers. Would you recommend a 32"-27 oz or a 32"-24 oz bat? Asked by grandpa

If he currently uses or is used to a -3 drop bat like the 33"/30 oz, then I would just go to a -5 drop bat like the 32"/27 oz to keep them somewhat similar in weight. It mostly comes down to personal preference however. Kyle J. Expert

My son is almost 12 and has been practicing with a -3 (32" Combat). Middle school just started but he also has one year of rec ball left. I'm looking at a USA bat for rec, what would you recommend? He is 5'5" and weighs 120 lbs. Asked by paul

Considering your player's specifications, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5. This composite bat is offered in the 32" size that your player is familiar with, and the end-loaded swing weight will actually make it feel even more like the -3 weight of the Combat he currently uses. If you were looking for a comparable bat in a cheaper option, the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 would be another recommendation. Tyler Expert
