2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10
Pros: Long barrel and nice pop!
Cons: Having to switch to the USA standard....
Pros: Nice loud sound when hitting the ball. Cool graphics. Solid one piece bat. Performance seems as good as any of the USA bats we have seen.
Cons: It's not a Mako...
Pros: so for a 1pc aluminum bat it has a nice sweet spot good pop except for the 28"bats.they hit like a wet rag im not sure what happened here but the 29 and 30" we have are fire .The 28 doesnt seem to have a sweet spot or any pop.
Cons: it swings a little heavy has a little sting on miss hits .The 28" version is terrible .
Pros: My son really likes the feel. feels like it has great control through the zone. USA bats seem to have a heavy feel to them. He is a big, strong 9 almost 10 year old that swung a 30/20 mako X last year while hitting for average and power. This year he is swinging a 29/19 beast X. He really feels more power in the one piece aluminum. this makes sense as every effort to isolate your hand from zingers has to be absorbing energy even on squared up balls.
Cons: having to re-orient expectations on what power will look like this season.
Cons: Two kids on team have same bat, 2 different sizes. Both kids complain the bad vibrates so bad they are hesitant to swing it
Pros: Easy balanced feel and provides the same pop (maybe a touch more according to my son) as the Ghost X. Don't spend the money on the Ghost X thinking some excessive break in time is going to produce more. Alloy will provide great results, especially with stronger kids.
Cons: The grip tape is horrible. Replace it with nice, thick Lizard Skin or Vulcan grip. The handle in all drops is made for small hand kids. Wrap athletic tape and combine Lizard Skin to accommodate your kid's hand size. Will also alleviate any sting.
Pros: My son loves it. Good for player with quick swing. Nice design and easy to grip.
Pros: good barrel. nice design
Cons: bat grip terrible.
Pros: For a decent 7 1/2 yo batter there was not a noticable drop in bat performance from his USSSA to this USA bat. At that age a hit is a hit! No complaints of felt vibration after 200-300 batted balls.
Cons: None thus far.
Got a question about the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
What BPF number does this bat have? And minor little league says 2 1/4" barrel allowed, but this says 2 5/8". Is it compliant?
No official BPF number has been given for the new USA standard, but it should play more like a BBCOR bat, so I imagine it would be around .50 or slightly higher. This bat will be legal for Little League play because it has the USA certification stamp.
Is bat speed more important with the new USA certified bats for PONY baseball?
Bat speed should be just as important as it has always been. We always recommend swinging the heaviest bat you can while still maintaining good bat speed and control. This will obviously vary from player to player as to what weight/length combination they can handle.
Does this bat require breaking in like the composite bats?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 is an aluminum bat and does not require any break in period.
I hear this bat is heavy. Can you give me the actual weight on a 28"/18 oz before I buy?
Almost all bats (USA or not) will weight about .5-1.5 oz heavier than the listed weight as manufacturers do not include things like the adhesive glue for the endcap and grip tape into the final weight. This variance also varies from model to model. We did weigh a 2018 Easton Beast X -10 (YBB18BX10) that was 29"/19 oz and it weighed 20.7 oz, so +1.7 oz.
I was looking to buy a 2018 beast x hybrid, but it doesn't come in a 28in. Is there a big difference between this one and the hybrid, besides the price?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 features a one-piece alloy design while the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10 features a two-piece, hybrid design which means the barrel consists of alloy and the handle consists of composite materials. Another difference will be the balanced swing weight of the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 in comparison to the slight end-loaded swing weight of the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10. Typically, the price of the bat goes up when dealing with a two-piece bat due to the manufacturing process required during construction.
Is this bat okay to use in 11u in baseball in British Columbia, Canada for 2018? Does it have USA Stamp on it?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 does feature a USA baseball stamp. I recommend reaching out to a league official to see if you will need the USA stamp. If not, you will most likely be able to swing a USSSA baseball bat.
I'm hesitant to purchase this bat and I need to ask. Can this bat be used in USSSA league? It doesn't have the 1.15 BPF stamp on it. I did see in your catalog that is 1.15.
This model is not USSSA certified, as it is USA certified. The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 should still be allowed for use in leagues that require the USSSA standard though, but that is always best to ask a league official to make sure. If you want the USSSA 1.15 BPF certified option, then you will want to go with the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX108.
Is this the 2 5/8 barrel?
Yes, the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 features a 2 5/8" barrel.
What are the key differences between this and the hybrid, other than the 2 piece construction the hybrid offers? Barrel comparison? Which should have more "pop"? What advantages would each have over the other?
Really the main difference between the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 and the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10 is just going to be that the hybrid has more flex due to the two piece design. The barrels are going to be similar and they are going to perform similarly. It would be a personal preference on if the player likes two piece bats vs one piece bats.
They are different standards, but with the one piece alloy would this bat be similar to the Marucci cat 6? If not would any of the new USA bats resemble that design.
Yes, both the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 and the Marucci Cat 6 will have similar construction. Both will be one-piece all alloy baseball bats.
What's the swing weight of this bat vs the two piece ghost X (both 29/19)? Also, compare this bat swing weight to the Solo 618 (both 29/19) and last question is if this bat has a longer barrel of any one piece alloy bat?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 will have a more balanced swing weight in comparison to the two-piece 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10 which will feature a slight end-load swing weight. The swing weight of the 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLS618X10 will be more similar to that of the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10. Lastly, this Easton Beast X does have the X-Tended barrel design to create a massive sweet spot. However, the length of the barrel will be similar to most one piece alloy bats.
What is the actual weight of the Easton Beast X -10 in 28 inch? Is it 18 ounces or is it more?
Typically, bats will weigh an ounce to two ounces heavier than the listed weight. The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 will weigh between 18 and 20 ounces. This is just due to the manufacturing process.
Would this bat be compared to the S3 older models?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 will be similar to previous models of the Easton S3 in that both models have a one-piece alloy design with a balanced swing weight.
Just bought the bat, it's 2 weeks old and has a couple of hundred hits at the most, mainly off the tee. Anyway, went to the cage with my son, hit a pitch with it and now something is loose inside if you shake the bat you can hear it rattle! Any idea what it could be?
The rattle noise that you are hearing with regards to the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 is more than likely the result of the adhesive that is used on the end cap of the bat. To secure the plastic end cap to the barrel the manufacturers use an adhesive and this is often times over applied; if there is not enough adhesive the end cap will essentially pop off on contact. As the adhesive dries there will be some that will dry to the inner walls of the barrel and then break off after use. This will not affect the performance of the bat.
I have a 7 year old and this will be his first year in coach pitch. He is about 50 inches and 68 pounds. Would you recommend a 27/17 or a 28/18?
Based upon his height and weight, our JustBats' Bat Coach says that the 28" length would be recommended. If you feel that he can handle the 18 oz weight of the 28" length model of this 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18BX10), I would recommend the bat in that size.
How does the 30/20 version of this bat compare to the 30/20 Easton Mako Beast Youth XL? What are the similarities, what are the differences? Thanks.
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 will feel more balanced than the XL.
What is the difference in the the Beast X and Ghost X?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 features a one piece aluminum design while the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 features a two piece, fully composite design.
Will Easton be releasing a version of this bat that is lighter than -10?
From my knowledge the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 will stick to the -10.
Is the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 a balanced bat or is it end loaded?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 is a balanced bat.
How does this bat compare to the RAWLINGS VELO US8V10?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18BX10) contains a higher quality alloy which allows for increased durability. Also, the YBB18BX10 has an extended barrel which allows for a bigger sweet spot. The Rawlings Velo is a hybrid that can reduce vibrations and delivers more pop behind the ball.
