Is this bat hot out of the wrapper or does it need to be broken in?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 would benefit from a slight break in of roughly 50-125 swings off the tee or soft toss.
What is the difference in this bat for $349 and the other bat, 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 for $199?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 is a two-piece fully composite bat while the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 is a one-piece fully alloy model. Both bats are end-loaded in swing design. The advantage of the Ghost X is the vibration reduction capabilities from off-centered hits. As for the price difference, two-piece composite bats will always hold a higher price tag due to the cost of the raw materials as well as the additional process that must take place to get the bat manufactured.
How do you compare this bat to the 2017 Demarni CF Zen -5?
This bat will compare very similarly to the DeMarini CF Zen as it is a two-piece, fully composite design just like the CF Zen. Both bats will offer high performance and good vibration dampening from the two-piece design.
For a power hitter that is 13, 6â€™1 156lbs would you suggest this in a 32/27 or a 2017 Demarini Cf Zen 32/27?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 will offer your player an end loaded swing weight, which is often beneficial for a power hitter. The CF Zen's are balanced bats, which typically tend to benefit contact hitters more as they can control the barrel a little bit better with a lighter swing weight.
What is the difference between the black Easton Ghost -5 and white Easton Ghost -5?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 will be USSSA certified, or legal for travel ball. The black Easton, 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5, will be a a USA certified bat.
Is this a BBCOR bat?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX58) is not a BBCOR bat. The BBCOR bats are -3.
I'm looking for a new bat and wondering what the difference is between this one and the BBCOR composite Ghost X (-3) I saw on Easton's website.
The biggest difference is in the weight. The BBCOR model will be a drop 3 length to weight ratio where the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX58) is a drop 5 length weight ratio.
Is this bat end loaded? I am looking for a two-piece end loaded bat and this could be the one if it is end loaded.
Yes, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 features a two-piece composite design with an end loaded swing weight.
I bought the drop 5 Ghost. My son is complaining thereâ€™s a lot sting to the hands at contact. Is this normal for a new bat? Is there anything I can do to prevent this? I want to make sure I do not have a defect.
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 features a two piece design that should limit vibrations a substantial amount. The bat will have some more vibrations through until it is fully broken in due to the composite fibers being stiffer. To properly break in the Easton Ghost X, 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.
When will you be getting the 32" model?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 will be coming out in a 32 inch model but at this time we are not sure when that will occur.
Other than looks, what are the differences between this bat and the 2017 Easton XL1 Beast?
Both bats are very similar. However, what the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX58) provides is a more advanced composite allowing for better vibration reduction.
What is the difference between the SL18GX5 and the SL18GX58?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 has a 2 5/8'' barrel, where as the SL18GX5 has a 2 3/4'' barrel.
Will this bat also be approved for Little League play under the new USA Baseball guidelines? Easton, on their website talks about the new bats being available 09/01/17, is this one of those bats?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX58) does not follow the USA standards. This bat is USSSA certified. Easton is correct, the new bats will be released 09/01/2017.
