My son is 6'2" and 235 lbs, high school senior. He hits for power and contact (.570 BA & 12 HRs last season). He currently hits a 34" Easton X1 (orange 2-pc). Would you recommend the Easton Beast X Loaded or the Easton Beast X Speed?
I would probably recommend the Easton Beast X Loaded for your son. If you can handle the end-loaded feel then it should provide more power since you have a bit more mass at the point of contact.
I'm a power hitter and I'm 5'11", 160 lbs and I bench 175 pounds. I'm use to end loaded bats, so I was wondering if I need the Easton Beast X loaded? I see the Easton Beast X speed has better reviews than the Loaded Easton Beast X. Which bat should I get then?
Considering, that you are a power hitter than is accustomed to swinging end loaded bats, I would recommend you go with the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL. The X Speed is a very balanced option and is better suited for a contact hitter.
Would you recommend the beast x speed or the beast x loaded?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL features an end-loaded swing weight so a portion of their weight focused towards the end of the barrel and are geared more towards your power hitters looking to hit for the fence. The 2018 Easton Beast X Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXS features a balanced swing weight delivers more speed behind the ball at contact and is geared towards contact and power hitters.
USSSA allows the use of BBCOR as long as the bat is qualified for NHSF play and is manufactured by a qualifying licensee. Does this bat meet those requirements?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL would be a legal BBCOR bat.
I am 5â€™9â€ 145 pounds, I have used many end-loaded bats in the past, what size do you recommend?
Based on your height and weight and the fact that you have used end loaded bats in the past I would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL in the 32"/29 ounce size for you.
My son is currently been using an XL1 drop 5 orange and loves it. What BBCOR bat should I get him that compares to his current bat?
There is not a bat currently on the market from Easton that will compare to the older XL1 that was being made. The 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL will give a player the same end-loaded swing weight design but it does not feature the two-piece composite construction as it is a one-piece alloy bat. The 2016 Easton MAKO XL BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB16MKL was the last year Easton manufactured a two-piece composite bat with an end-loaded weight distribution.
How does it stack up against the Ghost? Does composite go further?
The main differences between the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18BXL) and the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18GX) are that the Beast is one-piece all aluminum alloy with an end-loaded swing designed to better suit power hitters, while the Ghost is a two-piece composite bat with a balanced swing design. Neither alloy nor composite stands above the other in terms of distance provided on similarly hit balls.
What is the difference in the 2018 Easton Beast X Speed and the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL features an end loaded swing weight, while the Best X Speed features more of a balanced swing weight. The Loaded is typically a better option for a power hitter and the Speed is typically better for a contact hitter.
Can I get any BBCOR bat with more than a -3 drop?
All BBCOR certified bats, including the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL, are required to have a -3 length-to-weight ratio.
Is there a need to break in the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR bat?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL is an alloy bat, so there is no need to be broken in.
I am 5'10" tall and a 13 year old with home run/gap power. Would you suggest this bat?
This would be a good bat for a power hitter due to its end loaded design.
I am a 5'4" 15 year old who weighs about 140 lbs., would you recommend this bat or the Speed model?
If you've used end loaded bats in the past, then the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL would work well for you. If you haven't used end loaded bats previously, I would suggest going with the balanced model, the 2018 Easton Beast X Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXS.
What is the difference between this bat and the 2017 zcore xl? Is it worth the $100 price difference to get the new model?
To be honest, there isn't much difference from the 2017 Z-Core XL BBCOR baseball bat to the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL other than cosmetics.
What is the difference between the loaded and hybrid models?
The 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL will feature a one-piece alloy construction with an end-loaded swing weight design while the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH features a two-piece design (alloy barrel and composite handle) with a slightly end-loaded swing weight design.
