Why is this bat (Easton Ghost X (-5) SL18GX58) no longer available on your website? It says "discontinued."
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 is no longer being made by Easton. The reason why it says "discontinued" is due to the fact we have sold out and can no longer get more in from Easton.
Do you recommend this bat over the new 2019 Demarini CF Zen?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58, like the CF Zen, will be a multi-piece fully composite bat. This means that both will reduce vibrations, flex on contact, and require a brief break-in period before reaching peak levels of performance. The main difference between these two top-end models will be that the Ghost is end loaded while the CF Zen is a balanced bat. Typically speaking, end loaded bats will better suit a power hitter while balanced options tend to be more beneficial for a contact hitter. Therefore, it would be tough for me to recommend one over the other without knowledge of your player's skill set.
Does this bat have a usa stamp?
Unfortunately, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 is only approved for USSSA play. Easton does make a USA certified Ghost X and you can view that on our site with the following code: YBB18GX5.
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 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.

How do you compare this bat to the 2017 Demarni CF Zen -5?

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.

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.
