Pros:  It looks very nice, the paint scheme pops.

Cons:  We have the Beast X -12, in a 29 but it is 18 and 1/2 ounces. Not 17 oz. So it is really a drop 10.5. The handle is very long with a short barrel line a fungo. We also have the composite ghost X with the 25/8 barrel and it is also heavier than the drop weight would suggest. The new USA bats are just heavy, at least Easton's 2 high end bats are. They should leave the old bats for players up to 10.Very sad for the little guys in Farm.

Pros:  The bat is very light. My son also has the Easton big barrel ghost. He likes to use this bat against fast throwing pitchers cause of the weight. He has the 30" 18 oz. And uses the ghost against slower pitchers. He loves it but its also to soon to fully judge 100%.

Cons:  Well any small barrel the con will be u could of gotten big barrel instead. No worries super dad covered that and got him big barrel ghost. If your one of those kids that need to hear a big loud sound when u hit the ball , well I got news for you, all the new bats wont have that, accept and get over it.

Pros:  My son hits the ball harder and further with his 29/17 -12 Beast X then his Mako Beast 28/16 -12. I was really surprised by this since we already purchased and returned the Ghost X XL and 2 piece Ghost X and those have no pop. If you ever hit the Eaton S500 or Eaton Reflex, this might be the same bat with a different paint scheme. I can see this being the sleeper bat of the USA bats since all the kids are going to be drawn to the big barrels. This has been the only USA bat where my sons hands don't dip and the bat stays on plane and can really whip through the hitting zone. The big barrels made his swing slow and sloppy due to the extra weight in the barrel.

Cons:  Its a 2-1/4" barrel and no one will buy it. Scares the little Pinto kids from the crazy loud PING it makes.

Pros:  My son liked the feel of this bat and he hit well with it.

Cons:  The Beast X -12 is not well made in my opinion. Our season has not even begun and we already had to send it back to Easton. The end cap began to separate from the barrel. Easton did send us a replacement, however, THE REPLACEMENT BAT WAS WORSE. The replacement was used for maybe 50 hits and the end cap flew completely off of the bat. I am questioning if this particular model is defective. It seems odd to me that the same issue occurred with two bats, all within a two week period. His was a 30 inch bat. I would not recommend this bat.

Pros:  Nice and Light bat...... gets through the zone fast....Small barrel is good for advanced hitters..... however some of the less advanced hitters can get some pop on the ball when they connect. Overall my son and other players like the bat for its light weight. 29”17oz.

Cons:  Players can get some sting on the hands if not gripping bat correctly... Also if getting glancing contact can get some sting on the hands...

Pros:  Professional look, quality and durability. My son never use other bat diameter except for 2 1/4" and he crush that ball every night with this bat. We have the same version of the bat last couple years but lighter but this version 2018 is a little bit heavier but don't affect my son performance. Other kids in his team have 2 5/8 barrel and they want to use my son bat. I recommend this bat 120%

Cons:  None

Pros:  Sleeper bat of the year on my kids little league team. The bat is lighter than any other USA bat at that length. It has decent pop for a USA bat but is still a USA bat. best part is the lightness inspires swing confidence and more speed. Great bat

Cons:  price point

How would this compare to Easton's S1 bats of previous years: (Wondering about a comparison in regard to swing feel)?

This 2018 Easton Beast X Hyperlite -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat (YSB18BXHL) will be extremely balanced in its swing feel. The S1's of the past were very balanced as well. if you were interested in emulating that balanced feel in a bat, I think this Beast X Hyperlite will suffice.

I saw on Easton's website that they offer the bat in 27/15. Will you be ordering/carrying this option?

Unfortunately, at this time we do not have plans on carrying a 27" 15 oz version of the 2018 Easton Beast X Hyperlite -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18BXHL.

What is the difference in the USA stamped bats and the USSSA stamped bats? How would I know which to buy?

The 2018 Easton Beast X Hyperlite -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18BXHL will have the USA stamp resulting in a wood-like performance in youth bats while allowing younger players to use light-weight bats that could not be achieved with wood bats. AABC, Babe Ruth / Cal Ripken, Dixie, Little League, and PONY will all be affected by the USABat rule change, but USSSA will not. Currently, USSSA Baseball will allow the use of a bat that carries the new USABat stamp.

Is this going to become available in a 28"?

Today starts the new bat program. My question is I notice the Beast is made of alloy and the Ghost is made of carbon. What bat has more pop to it? Are there any other bat types? Also, my son is a line drive gap to gap hitter, not a homerun hitter. He is 11. I know he will also be outgrowing bats in the future, so I wanted to ask what bat do you recommend? The Ghost bat is a little too expensive right now since he might outgrow it in a year or two. Your thoughts would be appreciated.

The new bat rules go into affect starting January 2018. The 2018 Easton Beast X Hyperlite -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18BXHL will be legal for those leagues requiring the use of a USA bat stamped approved model. Looking at this bat compared to the Ghost X, the Ghost X will be more balanced (feature lighter swing weight feel) and be better equipped to reduce vibration from off-centered hits. Hard to say which bat may offer more pop as both bats will have thick barrel wall designs; time will tell if any of the new USA bat stamped models will significantly out perform the others. As for other types of bats, there are only three types: one-piece (typically all alloy), two-piece hybrid (alloy barrel and composite handle) and two-piece composite.
