Pros:  I was skeptical about this new USA bat standard. I thought they were charging us parents the same amount of money for a bat that didn't perform as well. My son wanted this Ghost X because it's most similar to his mako beast but I think it's better. The pop is great off this thing. He never complains about sting in his hands anymore either. 11/10.

Cons:  None yet.

Pros:  We all know that the bat will not be as hot as the USSSA ones...but this model is not that bad. If you hit it square...it will fly. Can't compare to the other models but I am happy with this bat... Will only get hotter as we use it more. Smooth and clean design as is the norm with Easton bats...

Cons:  Loud ping when the ball is hit 29 inch comes in at about 19.5 ounces the price

Cons:  few bad stingers with the start of break in. bat seems "softer" with more pop on every batting session

Cons:  Everything else. Our whole team tried it out. Hands were stung and balls went nowhere. We average 3 homers a game and the team managed to hit 1 out during the entire 3 hour practice. Not worth the money

Pros:  Really solid feeling. Little to no sting. Ball seems to fly off bat ......but

Cons:  A good 30-40 feet shorter than last years Beast. So 240 is now 200. MAKO Youth Ash Wood 2 1/4" bat goes further consistently. OK if I can expect break in, but Easton says no break in is necessary.

Pros:  Obviously this is a new bat on the market and there are a lot of questions about the new USA bat standard. I broke down and bought a 30” drop 10 Ghost X and my son absoltelty loves it. He loves the feel of the composite bat and continues to say how he does not even feel the ball coming off the bat. The biggest diffence I see is not with the pop of the bat, but how many more balls he is hitting hard that he was just missing with the 2 1/4 barrell. With a composite 2 5/8” barrell, he is now putting balls in play that would have been fouled off with the smaller diameter bat. He feels like he is going to the plate with tennis raquet in his hands which has given him a ton of confidence. He picked an inside the park HR on his first hit by sending a ball to the gap that rolled to the fence. Balls that were singles are now extra base hits and he has tremendous confidence at the plate. Other kids on our team that also have Makos notice a different feel with the Ghost X.

Cons:  The Ghost X will make a lot of money disappear, but it’s worth it for our family and is a bat he can use for the next 2-3 years.

Pros:  Bat is well constructed with a good balance.

Cons:  I usually don’t write reviews but feel compelled to with this product. I think the velocity restriction has gone too far. The average exit velocity is 5% to 7% slower after 500 swings than my son’s previous 1.15 bat. In fact, we purchased a maple Louisville slugger wooden bat on sale for $19.99 at the time as this purchase. My son gets slightly more distance and better exit velocity off of the LS, which is a couple ounces heavier. I would not buy this bat again. I strongly believe my son gets an equal performance from a much cheaper wood bat. I am concerned that this restriction is going to drive players from youth organizations using the USA requirement. Finally, the bat does still vibrate quite a bit when the ball misses the sweet spot toward the end of the bat or below the barrell.

Pros:  Feels light for -10. Bigger barrel. There is enough pop in this bat. I would not classify our game testing results as similar to wood. Some well struck balls from a couple players that used in a game. Probably a bit less than a broken in mako, but as a coach, hitting fungos I didn't notice a drastic difference from the 1.15. Which begs the question, WHY CHANGE TO A NEW STANDARD?!

Cons:  Cost. Plenty of good bats still in circulation and these new ones don't seem all that different to us so far. Our organization is allowing both the old bats and the new bats, at least for 1 year until we see how this pans out. Let kids hit homeruns and if you are worried about safety, play 50/70 and move them back.

Pros:  This guy at practice brought a bunch of these bats to "demo" them and I like the "32 inch, 25 ounce". This bat had so much pop and right when I picked it up to try it out I knew this is going to be a great bat for. Thanks so much Easton for this new bat, great job on the bat.

Cons:  nothing wrong

Pros:  This bat is basically like hitting a slightly less stinging, light swing weight wood bat with a full size barrel.

Cons:  $350 for a bat that doesn't hold a candle to the one your kid used last year. A good 30-50 feet shorter, and on par or less performance than my sons Marruci Cutch youth wood bat. The bat also is not as sting dampening as the old bats.

Pros:  It is drop 10

Cons:  Mot much else. No pop, a "tinny" terrible sound, and almost no feedback other than vibration, and fairly expensive for such sub par performance. My son got it early to see how the new little league bats would perform. After 3 months of use he has decided to either find a different bat, perhaps just go with aluminum alloy, or go to wood for little league.

Pros:  Good swinging light bat. Well balanced.

Cons:  My son is the 3 hitter in the lineup because he has power and excellent contact. Since buying this bat his production is lousy. We have actually in most cases had him go back and use his previous Demarini and he performs great. I understand pop will decrease but this is terrible. I am very surprised as we paid a lot of money for what we thought would be the best bat. I also feel this is kind of silly and will just detour more kids from playing regular little league type divisions as apposed to some type of travel or other division where these bats are not required.

Pros:  We purchased this bat (32” -10) on Saturday (11/18) and I was terrified that it might be too big for my 8 yr old son... but I want him to grow into it so thats why we bought it bigger. Well we came home, set up his hitting net and tee... After his very first swing with it, I knew we had made a good call on the length and weight. He swung it like he had been swinging it forever already. He loved the feel of it... he loved the colors of it... he was so excited... so all I can say is that my son loves it so far.

Cons:  None so far... might find some later but for now, very happy with it.

Pros:  Good pop, well balanced, and nice sound. Put this bat in a good hitter’s hands with sound mechanics and the ball jumps off the barrel. My son is a contact hitter with gap power (10 year old) and he is driving balls just as hard as his old Combat Maxum. The larger barrel makes up for any sweet spot issues. This is a really nice and well made bat! As with all eastons, feels about an ounce, ounce and a half heavier. Lots of ooohs and awwws when my son is taking batting practice and he’s on the smaller side. This is a full 2 piece composite bat not an alloy hybrid and more balanced than end loaded like the makos.

Cons:  Not a fan of Easton’s grip but even so there is little to no sting. Parents/coaches complaining about this bat will find ALL NEW USA BATS have the same or similar issues on “homeruns.” Unless your kid is used to hitting multiple homeruns every game, I wouldnt put 2 cents into the “no pop” argument people have complained about. The cost is high but is the bat evey hitter gravitates to wittiut a doubt.

Pros:  Bat looks good, swings balanced, not much else

Cons:  The cost of course is a major con. Not sure why LL went to the USA bat standard because these bats are dead. At least 30 feet less per hit with this bat. Broken in, its not much better. I really didn't see many hits before the USA bat standard came out that worried me about players health, so this just seems like another moneymaker and power grab to me

Was this review helpful ? 3 5

Pros:  They look and feel good in the hands

Cons:  Bought two of these bats for my 10 and 11 year old sons. Both play select ball and Little League so we have experience with multiple bats for both organizations (USSSA and LL)...both are excellent hitters for contact and power but these USA bats are not only bad for pop but the consistent sting is so bad they prefer to use a wood bat. My sons and every kid we have spoke with absolutely dislikes everything about these bats. This review is for the USA Bat technology itself, not so much for Easton. We’ve had great experience with the Makos so with all things considered we hope these Eastons hold up for the 2018 Little League season but we are not happy about the performance of them. This specific bat could use a better grip, we replaced both grips before initisl use. If you play Little League, “it is what it is”!

Was this review helpful ? 4 3

Pros:  Okay guys, I hesitated to put a review in after getting the bat. I didn't want to be critical with reviewing the 2018 Easton Ghost X bat because I know there is some breaking in time with composite bats. I don't think it would be fair to judge any composite bat the first few weeks of purchase and use. The 2018 Easton Ghost X (drop -10) is no different. Honestly, right out of the wrapper, my 8-year old son used it and immediately we both noticed the bat did not have any pop. After the first 400-500 hits, I noticed a little more pop and a little more distance. Now we've had it for over a month now and over 1,000 hits, I'm seeing more and more pop. The ball is finally popping off this bat! The rating IMO is not fair of this bat. Let me also be clear that my son hasn't used other USABats yet, but we are really noticing an improvement in the performance of this bat the more my son uses it. The barrel size is awesome! BTW, my son was using the 2015 Easton Orange Mako.

Cons:  1.20 bpf is the new standard.

Pros:  Looks cool. Good Balance

Cons:  It's not Easton's fault. They're required to make a bat to fit within the new USA Bat standard. DO NOT waste your money on this bat. My son could hit a ball further with a broom stick. If you used garbage bats before, then this will seem like a decent improvement; but still not worth the money. I agree with several of the other posts, it delivers about 50 ft less distance than the Easton Mako. I'll be shocked if my son matches last years offensive power production.

Pros:  My 11U boy really loved this bat at the start of training this season. It has a good sound when the ball is well hit and no vibration in the handle.

Cons:  As a baseball club we have broke 3 of these bats with less than 500 cuts. All of our training has been done indoors with real baseballs. They have not been used in cold weather or with dimpled balls and still breaking. Easton will only provide 1 replacement bat. We decided to go with the Demarini Zen USA -10. My son loves it. It has just as much pop and no vibration. We have not had one break yet.

Now, he is coming from the 3 and 1/4 barrel so that is probably why. Bat has better pop than we thought it was going to have due to the new standards. So far so good.

Maybe it needs more breaking in but hugely disappointed with it. Definitely not worth the price. Looking to get another bat then try to test the bat again over the summer when temperatures are warmer.

Pros:  this bat will produce base hits, thats all that matters in baseball. homeruns are nice, but contact and putting the ball in play is what counts. the DADS writing reviews about their son having power and getting less distance and so on, have no clue about true baseball, its not the bat, its your player, those dads play through their kids. its not the bat, its the batter. put the ball in play and make the defense work, name of the game. thats what makes a ball player. A bats a bat, a kid that makes contact and puts ball in play is a true ball player. distance means nothing, especially at this age.

Pros:  Looks good in your hands, that's about it.

Cons:  This bat is like a piece of cement cloaked in composite. I understand that the pop on the new USA bats were going to be substantially less but this is ridiculous. My son is not a slouch by any means, I mean he was hitting balls off the fence last year in coach pitch with an $80 Easton of which I don't even know the model. This year the same contact has yielded balls that barely leave the infield using a bat 4 1/2 times the price. Rip Off

Pros:  that bat is durable. i used it all winter for fielding practice for break in. Easily hit 1000 balls. The balls can fly if you hit the ball correctly. But thats where it ends. The bigger bats are better we have a 31 -5 and its a completely different bat over the fence everytime with good contact and no sting.

Cons:  The kids started using the bat in the spring and i think every kid has stood on second still shaking their hands. With the -10 they are all base hits. The bat is really end loaded so the balance is awful if you have trouble driving hands at the ball.

My son currently has the Ghost X 2 3/4" bat for travel ball. It is a 29"/19 oz. We are looking for a USA certified bat for Little League. Besides the Easton Ghost X what other bat do you recommend? He likes the two-piece design with a balanced weight.

I would also recommend taking a look at the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo CF Zen -10 USA. That is also a two-piece, composite design with a balanced swing weight.

My son is 10 and weighs about 75 pounds, not big and powerful buy any stretch, but when he hits it square he can hit it pretty well. Worried the 30in is way too much bat, he currently swings a 29 but will he soon outgrow a 29?

I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 in a 29 inch length. If you expect a growth spurt in the near future, I would recommend going up to a 30 inch and then you can use the bat for a longer period of time.

Based on your player's specifications, I would recommend either the 30" or 31" 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10. Both would be great fits for your player.

My son prefers a thicker bat handle. We've viewed the Ghost X and the handles seem too slender. Any problem wrapping the handle with an addition bat wrap, over the existing one?

I don't see any issues if you want to thicken up the grip tape of the bat.

Bought the Ghost X and removed the plastic wrap but under that there is some shiny plastic like film over the Ghost X writing. Does that get removed somehow or is that actually part of the bat? Doesn't seem right to have a slick film on the barrel.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 has a clear coat like finish over the parts of the barrel that say "Ghost X." This is completely normal and not something that is to be removed.

My son has previously used a Mako 30 in/19 oz (-11) and it seemed to work well for him. He is 11 yrs old, 4' 11' and 150 lbs. He is also considered a power hitter. Which size and weight of bat do you suggest in the Ghost?

If your son used the Easton Mako previously, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 would be the most comparable option, just an ounce heavier. At his height and weight, I would suggest a 31" 21 oz. size.

What is the proper way to break in the ghost X -10?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 will require a slight break-in period. We recommend about 50 contact swings off a tee or soft-toss, slowly turning the barrel after each swing.

Between the DeMarini CF Zen -10 and the Easton Ghost X -10, which is a better bat for my son?

I think both bats are very good models and you'd be fine with either choice. It's still a bit early to determine the best performers for the new USA bats as they have not been out long enough to get a clear picture of customer reviews.

I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 in a 31/21. This bat features a USA stamp which is approved for play in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, & Pony.

What size would you recommend for a 12 year old, 5'4" and 120 pounds? He used a 2016 Mako 31" (-11) last year which seemed to suit him. I've been thinking about moving him up to a 32".

Based on your player's height and weight, would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 in a 31 inch model. If you feel he can handle a 32 inch bat then there would be nothing wrong going in that direction.

I am 11 years old, 4'10", and 90 pounds and am playing up in a 12 year old travel league. Last year I used a 29/19 Mako XL and hit with power and high average. What new USA Ghost X would you suggest?

Based on the information you provided, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 as it will be the most similar model available to that MAKO that you were swinging previously.

My son is 9 years old, 4'7" and 66 lbs. I am trying to decide if he can use the Easton Beast X hybrid in 29"- 19 oz or if I should go with the Easton Ghost X in a 28"- 18 oz. Which model and bat size would you recommend?

For a player of your size we would recommend using a 29 inch bat. A player that is 9 years of age can then either go with a -11 or -10 length to weight ratio bat; the correct length to weight ratio to use will depend on how strong the player is based on the weight of their current bat and how well they handle it. Since the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 will feature better overall balance compared to the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10 then we would recommend the Ghost X if seeking a -10 model. If looking at -11 then the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL would be a great bat to get.

Is hitting TPC heavy balls bad for the Ghost X like it was for the composite bats before this year?

Hitting any ball heavier or more dense than a standard baseball will be hard on any bat, composite or aluminum.

Which is better the Ghost X or Ghost X Hyperlight?

We have not seen anything that would indicate that the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 is better or worse than the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL. Comes down to whether or not you need a lighter bat, such as the Ghost X Hyperlite, or value vibration reduction, which you would receive on the Ghost X.

My son is 11, weighs 165lbs and is 5'5. Last year in 10u Dixie he used a combat 29-17. We are nervous about going up in ounces too fast. What size bat do you suggest and would he struggle with too much of a difference between last year and this spring? We are trying to decide between this bat and the Easton Hyperlite.

Obviously each player will differ in what size bat they are comfortable but given your player's specifications, I would suggest either a 31" or 32" size bat. Now the increase in weight could be noticeable if you were to jump to a drop 10 bat like this 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10, but I you are more than welcome to purchase this bat and take dry swings with and it still return it if your player is unable to handle that amount of weight. We do recommend that all players swing the heaviest bat in which they are comfortable with in order to ensure the best overall performance though.

I recently purchased this bat for my son and the amount of vibration from the bat is somewhat unbearable. I thought he may be exaggerating but after trying for myself I realized he was not. Do you have any recommendations for this issue?

The only remedy that might help out with vibration would be purchasing some thicker grip tape and re-wrapping the handle. The grip tape featured on the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 is 1.4mm thick, so I would recommend trying to get some 1.8mm grip tape to put on the bat.

Last year my son used a 29in -10 Easton S3 and loved it. What bat is closest to that?

The first thing you will want to consider is the type of bat you need. This could be either the new USA baseball bats or the traditional USSSA baseball 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 (as long as barrel diameter, drop weight, material specifications, etc. match the specific division's requirements). I say this just so you are aware before making your purchase. Now, if you are interested in a bat that is similar to the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX108 if you need a USSSA bat. This will feature a balanced, one-piece, all alloy construction similar to that of the S3. If you need a USA bat, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 for those same reasons.

How do you break-in this bat?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 fairly hot out of the wrapper. However, it is still best to take about 100-150 swings off a tee to help break the bat in. It is best to rotate the barrel about a quarter turn every few swings, and to gradually work your swing speed up from about 50%.

The Ghost X will be an ounce heavier and also better equipped to reduce vibration from off-centered hits thanks to the two-piece design.

What is the warranty on this bat? What is the approximate break in period? Number of swings?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 features a one year manufacturer's warranty and to properly break it in, we recommend taking 150-200 swings playing soft toss or off a tee using real baseballs. Begin swinging at 40% power and work our way up to full strength as you get closer to 200.

Being that the barrel will not be as long as the Mako or Beast (USSSA) do you think these USA bats will swing a little easier?

Overall, the barrel lengths featured on this 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GX10), the 2016 MAKO (SL16MK10B) and the 2017 MAKO BEAST (SL17MK10B) should be similar (the USA models of bats might have slightly smaller lengths). As well, the weighting on the bats should be pretty similar. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to say that this 2018 Easton Ghost X USA Baseball Bat is easier to swing than the other bats.
