Pros: Big barrel. End loaded. Comfortable grip.

What is the difference between the Z-CORE Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16ZH (white and green version) and the 2018 Beast X Hybrid BB18BXH MOI wise? I don't understand why Easton's 1st video on here promotes this bat as a "balanced" bat and the description lists it as a slightly balanced bat. Would you say the Hybrid is in between the Speed and the End Loaded. Can I get a response from someone there who has swung these bats I am asking about?
The Z-Core Hybrid BBCOR from 2016 is considered a balanced model, while the Beast X Hybrid is a slightly end-loaded model, meaning it will feel a bit top heavy. I would place it between the Beast X Speed and the Beast X Loaded, yes.
What bat can you compare this one to? I am looking at getting the prime 918, but not sure if I want to spend that much. Does this bat have a similar feel?
No, the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH would not compare to the Louisville Slugger 918 because the Easton Beast X Hybrid has an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Louisville Slugger 918 is a three-piece fully composite bat. The Best X Hybrid would be more similar to the Louisville Slugger Select 718.
My son happy with the Easton products, he is playing 15U travel and school ball, and wants to continue using the Easton. What do you have that is not end loaded? Looking for a more balanced sweet spot.
If you are seeking a BBCOR bat from Easton that is not end-loaded like the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH then we would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXS or the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX.
My son is an 8th grader and will be playing high school next year requiring -3 ratio. We are looking at this bat to satisfy league/tournament play this year and when he enters high school next year. I noticed a Q&A about the stamp. Is this bat approved for play in high school baseball?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH is approved for all high school and NCAA baseball.
Does this bat come in a drop 5?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH has been released in two different drop weights. The bat listed above features a -3 drop weight. The other option is the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10 which features a -10 drop weight.
What has more pop? The Easton Beast X Hybrid or the Easton Beast X Speed?
It's to say that one bat will have more pop than the other. I will say that the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH features a two-piece, hybrid design with a slight end-load to it. In comparison, the 2018 Easton Beast X Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXS features a one-piece, aluminum alloy with a balanced swing weight. I would recommend going with what your player is most comfortable with from a construction and feel standpoint.
Does this have the USA stamp?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH is BBCOR certified, so it does not feature the USA stamp. Some leagues will allow the use of a BBCOR OR USA certified bat at 13-14 years old, so you would just want to check with your league.
Can the Beast X Hybrid be used in temperatures below 60 degrees ? I know the answer for composites is no but unsure of alloy bats.
Really it is not ideal to use any bat in temperatures below 60 degrees regardless if it is alloy or composite. The ball actually becomes more dense in the colder temperatures and that is what can cause issues for the bat. Some people prefer alloy bats, like the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH, in colder temperatures though because an alloy bat can dent and a dented bat does not necessarily lose its performance. A composite bat can crack and a cracked bat will not perform the same.
I am the DH for my high school varsity team. Would it be better the get this bat or the Ghost X?
Both are excellent top of the line options and it really depends on what type of hitter you are to determine which option is the best. The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH features a slightly end loaded swing weight and is typically a great option for bigger stronger power hitter type of players. The Ghost X features more of a balanced swing weight and is a better fit for the majority of players especially those that are contact hitters.
Can this bat be used in batting cages that do not utilize true baseballs (unlike Mako's of previous years)?
It would be best to just use the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH with traditional baseballs. The yellow dimpled batting cage balls have a different density compared to a standard baseball and they could potentially damage the bat.
What size bat do you recommend for a 5â€™10", 170 pound high school player?
Based on the player's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH in a 33 inch model.
I'm 5'9" about 160 lbs. I would like to know what inch bat I should get.
Based on your height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH in a 32 inch model. If you feel comfortable with a 33 inch then that is certainly a feasible option as well.
Does this bat qualify for 12U Dixie youth baseball 2018 new rules?
I would recommend a bat with a -10 or -8 length to weight ratio with the USA Baseball stamp. The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH is recommended for high school and collegiate players.
Can this be used in Babe Ruth leagues as well (Age 13)?
For the 13-15 Year Old Division of Babe Ruth, this 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18BXH) should be legal for use (even under the new 2018 rules for Babe Ruth Baseball).

Is the Easton 2018 Beast X Hybrid end loaded like the 2016 Easton Mako XL bat?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH will feature a slightly end loaded swing weight design.
