My son is 5 ft tall, 100 lbs and swings a Ghost X Hyperlite 31", -11. I am looking for a heavier bat for him. I am looking at a 31", -5. Would you recommend the Ghost X or the Beast X? Thanks.
I think both would be great options, and both are considered balanced bats. The Ghost X is a two-piece composite design that provides better vibration dampening and better flex and whip during the swing, while the Beast X is a one-piece alloy model that provides a bit more of a stiff swing feel and less vibration dampening, can but allow for a bit more power transfer to the ball because of that stiff swing. If one of those bats provides more of what you want out of a bat, then that's what I would go with.
My son is 5â€™4â€ and 98 pounds. He is a contact hitter, definitely not a powerful batter. What size would you recommend in this bat?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 in a 31 inch model.
Does this bat have a lot of sting? How does this bat compare to the -5 Louisville 718?
This bat is a one-piece design, so it will have more sting than a two-piece composite design that some bats have. This bat compares very similarly to the Louisville Slugger 718 when it comes to pop and performance. The 718 does have a three-piece design however, so it will provide better vibration dampening.
2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 what are the differences between the 2 bats? My son is 14, 110 lbs, and 5'8".

The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 will feature the traditional 1.15 BPF certification and will approved for travel ball. First you will want to decide which bat you will need based off the style of play. After that, I would recommend going with a 31" bat length based off the information you have provided.
How does the sweet spot on the beast X compare to that of the ghost X?
Both the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 and the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5 feature an X-Tended Barrel Design to create a massive sweet spot.
My son is 13 yrs old and 5'9" feet tall. Should he move to a 33" from a 32"?
Generally, I would only recommend a 32" length for a 13 year old player (especially if a 33" size of bat has been used and it was a little large). I think the -5 length-to-weight ratio on this 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18BX5) should work just fine for your 13 year old player. The 32" size would probably be best if he can handle 27 oz weight.
My son is a 6th grader and is 5â€™8â€, 145 lbs. What length and drop weight do you recommend?
Based on your son's age, as well as height and weight, I would recommend getting a 32 inch bat that is 24 ounces. If you feel your player can handle a -5 model, such as the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5, then there is nothing wrong with getting a 32 inch 27 ounce model.
My son is 11 years old 5'5" and 140 pounds. What size bat should he use?
Based on your players height and weight, we suggest a 32" model of the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5.
My son is 13 years old, 5'2" and 120 lbs. We are considering the Easton Beast X in either the drop 5 or 8. He is coming off using a drop 10 last year and aren't sure which to go with.
Based off your player's height and weight, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 or the 2018 Easton Beast X -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX8 in a 31 inch length. Typically, I recommend a 7th grade player to swing a drop 8 and a 8th grade player to swing a drop 5. This will allow for a smooth transition into the BBCOR drop 3 bat weight at the high school level.
How does this bat compare to the 2017 End loaded Composite Mako Beast as far as pop?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 won't have as much pop as the 2017 Mako Beast XL, due to the new regulation of USA certification.
Is this bat end loaded or balanced? Looking for a 32" 2 5/8" -5 USA Standard that has a balanced feel over something that is end-loaded.
This drop 5 Easton Beast X USA Bat (YBB18BX5) features an end loaded swing weight. If you're looking for a balanced USA baseball bat, this may not be the best option for you or your player.
Is this bat ok for a 10 year old?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 would be better suited for a player in 7th or 8th grade. For a player that is 10 and needing to use a USA approved model from Easton, we would recommend looking into the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL or 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10.
My son is playing LL and he has used a 28 inch Easton S300. How will this bat match up?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5, much like the S300 that your son has been using previously, is a one-piece all alloy model. How this bat will stack up is hard to say. The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 will be end-loaded whereas the S300 was a balanced bat. This could make the bat tougher to swing but that will really come down to the player and how comfortable they are with the weight distribution of an end-loaded bat.
Does this USA certified bat have an equivalent USSSA 1.15 BPF or BBCOR .50 parameters? My kid is playing in the 13U THEBIGSLEAGUE.COM Fall Season.
The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5 will perform more like a wood bat. Thus the rating measures will be more similar to BBCOR parameters.
