Pros: Just bought this for my 12 year old that plays competitive baseball. He had the Mako Beast last year and likes the Ghost X even better. Nice pop. No vibration complaints. Has a nice overall feel. Can't speak to durability yet. Other teammates tried it yesterday at indoor practice and loved it.
Cons: White grip gets dirty quickly but I never get much life from stock grips anyways so I could care less.
Pros: I can only tell you what my son relays to me, but he loves this bat. He has been using a teammates LS bat of the same size (30/20). When he got his Easton, it was night and day the way the ball came off the bat. I was worried that I was paying for a name, but 3 weeks in, it seems well worth the price.
Pros: Nice bat overall. Family is typically a Marucci fan. After my son cracked his 2 5/8 30/20 hex connect (composite) decided to try something different. Has a slender handle and breaks in nice. Doesn't have the pop the Marucci had but is close hence the 4 star rating on that. I wouldn't pay the $350 price tag as there are competitors out there that compare quality wise with a lower price point. Just my 2 cents
Cons: â€¢Pop could be a bit better for claiming to have the biggest sweet spot

My son plays 12u, he is 5 ft 4 and 145 lbs and stocky. What size bat would you recommend?
Asked by scott
Per your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX108 in a 31 inch model.
Is the SL18GX108 legal for USSSA?
Asked by mig
Yes, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX108) is approved for play in USSSA.
Is this bat end loaded or balanced? Also, what is actual weight of 30" bat? I know it says -10 but bats often weigh a bit more than their listed weight.
Asked by L.A.
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX108) will feature a balanced swing weight. Most bats weigh roughly 0.5 - 1.50 oz heavier than their advertised weight and so I would anticipate a 30" Easton Ghost X to weigh between 20.5 - 21.50 oz.
What are the differences between the SL18GX10 and the SL18GX108? These are the bats we have decided on. Also, my son is 4'5" and weighs 65 lbs. He is a lead-off and contact hitter. What size bat should we go with?
Asked by Zay
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX108 features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter, while the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 has a 2 3/4" barrel. Based on his height and weight, I would suggest a 29" bat.
Which size should I consider for my 11u, 120lbs, 5'1" son?
Asked by vince
Give your player's specifications, I would recommend that 31" option of the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX108.
My son is 10u, weighs 70 pounds and is 4 feet 9.5 inches tall. He needs a USSA bat. Which Easton Ghost X bat would you recommend? Thank you!
Asked by Brie
Based on your player's specifications, I would recommend a 30" (-10) sized bat. Furthermore, there is no USSA certification. There are both USA and USSSA certifications. This bat, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX108 is USSSA approved with a 2 5/8" barrel size and would be my recommendation if you could use a USSSA bat. However if you need a USA bat then you should check out the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10.
What is the typical break in period for this bat?
Asked by charley
We recommend that you hit 150-200 baseballs with the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX108 before it will be fully broken in. Make sure to turn the bat about a quarter turn after each 10-15 hits to ensure all of the barrel is fully broken in.
Is this 2018 model the exact same as the 2017 model/same dimensions (Easton Mako Beast SL17MK10). If not, what are the differences?
Asked by Lauren A
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX108 features Re-Designed CONNEXION+ Technology which improves the durability over the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK10B. Other than that they are very similar in all other aspects.
My son is in 13U rec league. Coach says he needs a USSSA rated bat. Looking for 30" (-8) size. What does senior league and junior league mean? Which one would he be in?
Asked by Handsome Rob
At 13 years old, he will want a Senior League Bat (Senior League can also be referred to as Youth Big Barrel). Senior League and Youth Big Barrel Bats will be bats that are USSSA 1.15 rated, have a 2 5/8" or 2 3/4" barrel diameter and are intended for kid pitch play. Junior Big Barrel bats are meant for younger kids playing coach pitch or machine pitch baseball. This 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX108) would be a bat intended for use in kid pitch baseball. However, instead of the -10 size, I would recommend a -8 bat like the following: (2018 Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8). You could get the recommended bat in the 30"/22 oz size.
Seeing some of the answers to other questions about boy height and weight and corresponding recommended bat dimensions has me re-considering. My 9 year old son is 61" tall and about 100 lbs yet lanky. Last year he swung a 28'', 18oz Easton S3. What would you recommend for bat size in this? Also, a 2 5/8" is really better than a 2 3/4" barrel?
Asked by Jerry
We would recommend a 30"-31" length of bat for his height and weight. As for barrel diameter, a 2 3/4" barrel will be larger than a 2 5/8", so you have an easier time to make contact with the ball and hit the sweet spot.
