2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX
you feel nothi g ball flys off bat
decent pop, good durabilty, and no viberation
Pros: name says it all the never expect it coming
Pros: The Easton Ghost bat is hot of the wrapper. This bat reminds me of the -5 2016 zen that has insane pop! (very balance) Easton finally got it right after that bum bat they made, Mako Beast in 2016.
Cons: I do not understand why they continue to use white grips on bats
Pros: solid, amazing pop little to no vibration, feels great and Eastin puts out great bats for duribity, but this bat sounds so amazing & pop is best on this bat then out other 4 easton bats
Cons: havent found one yet
Pros: decent pop, good durabilty, and no viberation
Cons: $450, not much fell when made good contact
Pros: Easton's Dynamic Feel System is the real deal. The feel when you hit this on the sweet spot is incredible. I've never had a more smooth feel on contact than with this Ghost X. The sweet spot is huge. The grip is comfortable (but it gets dirty super fast). I am in love with this bat.
Cons: The white color. The price.
Pros: you feel nothi g ball flys off bat . new conection is awesome . Im glad they upgraded the composite . very happy feels balanced
Cons: white grip
Pros: This is our sons first BBCOR bat as the league he is playing on required it. So from a -10 to a-3 was a big change. However he won MLB tickets for hitting the most land drives on his team with this bat. Its balance is great from handle to end letting him swing more level.
Cons: We have winter games starting in FEB in Colorado and because this is a composite bat we don't want to damage it when it gets below 60 degrees, so we got a much less expensive bat for the winter time.
Pros: Amazing pop and feels amazing
Pros: Been using this bat for a few weeks and everything about it is great. The bat is smooth with great pop great grip. I highly recommend this bat!

What would be the recommended size bat for a kid that is 5'8" and 150 lbs?
We would recommend a 32" length for your size.
My son is 6â€™ 230 pounds. What bat size do you recommend? He is a power hitter and started on the varsity team as a freshman. He is now 17, and I want to get him a size 34 inch.
Based strictly on his height and weight, I would suggest a 33" 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX. However, it sounds like he may be able to handle a 34" BBCOR bat, and that size would certainly be appropriate.
I'm stuck on if I should swing a balanced or end-loaded bat. I'm about 5â€™4, 114 pounds and starting high school ball this summer. I hit lead-off for my middle school team, but wouldnâ€™t say I'm power or a contact hitter. Just need some advice.
End-loaded bats have a portion of their weight focused towards the end of the barrel and are typically geared more towards power hitters. The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX features a balanced design and is one of the top all-around BBCOR bats. If you did decide on the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX, I would recommend a 30" or 31" length.
Iâ€™m a 5â€™10" 220 lb power hitter. Would this be a good bat?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is a great option for both contact and power hitters alike. It features a two-piece composite design with a balanced swing weight.
My grandson is 5'10" and weighs 160 lbs. He used end loaded youth bats and was hitting 300 ft bombs. When moving up to BBCOR bats I went back to balanced bats, Rawlings VELO (31 in). He tells me he is tired of his hits falling short of the fence. With the big weight difference, should I put him back in an end loaded bat and if so which one?
Unfortunately BBCOR bats will perform more like wood bats so the reason he is not getting the same type of results would be a combination of a few things (playing on bigger fields more than likely being one and not generating enough bat speed to drive the ball "x" amount of feet). The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX will have similar performance capabilities to any other BBCOR bat. If you wanted to get an Easton end-loaded BBCOR bat then you should consider the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXL.
I'm 5â€™7â€ and 148 lbs, which size should I buy? What is the difference between the Beast X Hybrid and this bat?
For someone of your height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX in a 32 inch model. The main difference between this bat and the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18BXH is the swing design and construction. The Beast X Hybrid features an alloy barrel and composite handle with an end-loaded swing weight design while the Ghost X is balanced and fully composite.

My son is 12, 5â€™4â€, and 125lbs. He is a homerun hitter. This is his last year in LL. He is also going to try out for the middle school team which is grade 6-8. Will he need two different bats? What size would you recommend?
I recommend reaching out to your coach and/or league official about bat requirements. For Little League, you will want a USA certified bat. For Middle School, I think you will also want a USA bat but you may be able to use a USSSA bat as well. The BBCOR bat above is typically used for High School and Collegiate players. I would also recommend a 31 inch bat length for your player.
For a 15 yr old, 5'-8 and 170 lbs, what length would you recommend? He currently is using a 32"
Our size chart has your son listed for swinging a 32'' 29 oz in the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX, but if he is swinging the 32'' well now a 33'' 30 oz would be a good option as well.
If Iâ€™m 5â€™8-5â€™9 and about 145 lbs, and have been swinging a 32 in 29 oz bat for about two years, should I get a 33 in 30 oz bat this year?
I would only recommend getting the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX in a 33 inch model if you feel comfortable using the longer and heavier bat. This decision comes down purely to how well you feel the 32 inch model has been working for you (can you cover the plate, is the weight feeling too light, etc).

What is the range of the swing weight index on the bat? Does the higher # mean more end loaded?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is a -3 length to weight ratio bat. A lower MOI is suppose to be a bat that is more balanced and one that may allow for better performance. This number (MOI) is not something one would be able to compare from one bat to another as it is not specified by manufacturers. Essentially a higher MOI would mean that bat is not as evenly balanced and thus potentially more end-loaded.
Which bat is better the Prime 918 or the 2018 Ghost X?
Both bats are very similar. The main differences is the grip tape and the pieces. The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18GX) is a two piece where the Prime 918 is a three piece.

Struggling to decide between this and the 2017 Beast. Any quick points on the major differences?

Unfortunately, Easton does not have plans at this time to release the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX in a 29" model. The 30" size will be the smallest size.
Does this bat come in a 33" drop 11 or drop 10?
The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX features a -3 length to weight ratio. This bat does not come in a 33" -11 or -10, but the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 (USSSA approved for travel ball, not Little League) is available in 32" -10.

Will the Ghost be available in a end load? Will Easton have a composite 2018 end load bat?
We do not carry the Ghost X in an end load model, and I don't believe Easton will make it in that design. The 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded is the end-loaded, alloy model for this year.
My son is 5'6+ and about 200+ pounds, I bought him a Z Core Whiteout bat 2 seasons ago. It was a 32," is this still good? Or would he need a 33?"

This 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18GX) and the Prime 918 BBCOR from Louisville Slugger will both be two-piece, all-composite bats with balanced swing feels to them. Sadly, since neither bat has been released from the manufacturer for an extended period of time, I would not be able to honestly suggest one bat over the other in regard to performance or durability at this time.

Typically bats that feature those specifications usually run anywhere from $400 - $450 in price.

This bat will be the 2018 continuation model of the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR bat.
What new Easton will be the best for a power hitter?
Power hitters generally prefer end-loaded bats, so I would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X Loaded (BB18BXL).
