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:  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:  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:  Great pop Nice feel

Cons:  It lasted 3 weeks and had to send it back due to cracking. The bat cracked along the seam where the two pieces were put together. Easton was great last year when I returned a bat, but this year when I returned this one it was a struggle. Now I have a bat that dosent have a warranty for the next 11 months. Bummer

Pros:  The anti-vibration mechanism is solid. The look of the bat is sleek, it stands out.

Cons:  I had to replace my 14 y/o son's Mako -5 after the cap popped. We had been trying to decide which Easton to get for the end of his summer season and going into his freshman year. The GhostX lured us in. However after BP, multiple home tee/soft toss sessions and 7 games we gave up on this bat. I felt like he was playing with a dead bat. We are exchanging it with Easton and hopefully it was just a lemon. I want to write a 5 star review on this bat as I am an Easton fan. Other cons: Top of the line price$$$, white grip?!

Pros:  The bat had little to no vibration, and can take a little bit of beating.

Cons:  I got my 32/29 Easton Ghost X bat about a month ago, and being a passionate baseball player i instantly unpackaged it, and set up the hitting net in the garage. Right from the start i knew something was wrong with the bat. At first i though it was Eastons break in period. BUT HUNDREDS of balls, and several games later i realized the bat had no pop and acted dead. I feel like Easton lied to me about this bats pop. Also, not as important but Easton please stop making bats with white grips, they get stained and discolored very quickly. Im getting another Ghost X bat from Easton, and if the bat i had was just a lemon i will write a better review.

What bat is better for BBCOR, aluminum or composite?

With regards to BBCOR, going with either alloy or composite will not change the performance capabilities. The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is a two-piece composite bat and will perform very similar to that of the Easton Beast X BBCOR model which has the alloy barrel.

I would recommend going with the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX because of Low MOI with Low Swing Weight Index the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX would be a great choice for a contact hitter.

How does the pop and balance compare to the Rawlings Quatro and DeMarini Voodoo?

The pop will be essentially the same on all three bats since the BBCOR certification comes with a .50 BPF restriction. As for balance, I think all three should be very similar as well, and it mostly comes down to personal preference. Personally I like the DeMarini Voodoo, since I prefer aluminum barrel models for a BBCOR bat.

Does this require a break-in period?

I would recommend that the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is hit 150-200 times, turning the barrel a quarter turn every 10-15 hits, in order to fully break-in the composite barrel for optimal performance.

My son is 14 years old, 6'5" and 155 lbs. What size bat would you recommend?

Based on your player's height at 6 feet 5 inches and weight at 155 pounds, our general recommendation would be to get this 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18GX) in the 33" length. As long as he can handle the 30 oz weight of the 33" bat, he should be fine using that size.

My son is 12 years old, 5'1'' and 105 lbs. He's playing 13u. What size bat would you recommend?

Based on your player's height and weight, I think he would currently be most comfortable swinging a 29" BBCOR bat (-3). If you wanted to purchase a bat that leaves your player with room to grow, you could get this 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18GX) in a 30"/27 oz but it might be a little long and heavy this season.

My son is a Freshman, 6'2" 170 lbs. He has a Mako Beast 32/29 and it is showing signs of wear and tear. Is the Ghost dramatically different and should he go to 33/30?

Yes, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX in a 33/30 based off the information you've provided. The new Ghost X features a slightly extended barrel when compared to the Easton Mako Beast. The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX also has an improved connection point and carbon technology to enhance the feel on impact with less vibration than the Mako Beast.

My son is 6’ 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 5’4, 114 pounds and starting high school ball this summer. I hit lead-off for my middle school team, but wouldn’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.

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.

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, 5’4”, 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.

If I’m 5’8-5’9 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).

Say I were to buy this bat during 2017, and the new stamp rule is not implied until Jan 1st, 2018. Does this bat have the new stamp? Would I be able to use this bat next year? I wouldn't want to spend $450 on a bat that won't be able to be used next year, right? Also, are there any bats that have the new stamp out?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is going to feature the BBCOR stamp. There are no changes coming to the BBCOR certification. There are some leagues requiring a USA Baseball bat in 2018. These bats will range from -5 up to -12. There are some leagues that will allow a BBCOR bat in a USA league but we would recommend contacting a local coach or league official before making a purchase to confirm this.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is the bat that Easton released this year to replace the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB17MK. The Mako Beast would be the most comparable option to the Ghost X.

You say the Ghost is new material, how did they change from the MAKO? How does the 918 composite compare to the Ghost?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX features a new Dynamic Feel System Delivers Best-In-Class Feel & Performance, Re-Designed CONNEXION+ Technology Enhances Durability & Is The Standard Of Excellence For Two-Piece Bats, and New Engineering X Advanced Carbon Technology Uses EXACT Composite For Better Vibration Reduction. The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBP918B3 and the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX will be very similar bats.

I am 5’5" and 130 pounds, do I buy a 32" or 33"?

I am 5’4" and 110 pounds, do I get a 32" or 33"?

Based on your height and weight, we suggest a 30" model of the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX. If you are comfortable swinging a bigger bat, I would suggest a 32" model, but I would not go with a 33" model at this time.

Is this bat worth $450? I've done all the research and I don't know if this is worth $450.

Typically, we see price increases when new technology is used during bat construction. The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX features new carbon technology, redesigned connection, and an enlarged sweet spot. This is one of the top bats on the market.

Is this bat end weighted or balanced and how does the overall bat compare to the Beast X?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX features a balanced swing weight. The Ghost X is a two-piece fully composite bat, while the Beast X is a one-piece fully alloy bat. Performance wise the two bats should be very comparable, but the Ghost X is better at preventing sting and vibration because of the two-piece design and it features a longer barrel because it is made out of composite.

Is this bat good for a smaller kid?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX is typically used by high school level players and up. If that meets your criteria then you will want to select the correct length and weight that is comfortable for your player.

Which composite BBCOR bat is the most balanced or which one be best for a smaller kid?

I would recommend the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime 918 BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBP918B3 or the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen BBCOR Baseball Bat: DXCBC if you are looking for a balanced composite bat.

How does it compare to the MAKO BEAST from last year?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX features a different composite material (EXACT Composite) as well as a redesigned connection point. These two new features give the bat about a 0.5 ounce difference in swing weight feel compared to the MAKO BEAST as well as better vibration reduction capabilities from off-centered hits.

I am about 5’5” and 105 pounds. Should I get a 31 or 32 inch bat?

Based on your height and weight it is suggested that you use a 32" bat. However, the length of bat is largely based on player preference.

Is this bat usa baseball approved for 2018 season?

No, the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX contains the BBCOR stamp and can be used in certain little leagues (typically 13U+), but not all. If you are unsure this bat is legal, reach out to the coach or league director.

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. Mainly, it comes down to player preference. The material is the same, it will have very similar pop and durability.

My son is 13 years old and will need to move to a BBCOR bat next season. He is only 4'8" and 84 lbs and has not hit puberty. Would you recommend this bat for him or something else?

This would be a good bat for him to use due to it's balanced and light swing weight, and also that it is available in the shorter lengths. If you look at other bats, you will want a balanced model. You can look under the "Bat Features" section to determine if this is the case for nearly all models on our site.

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

The only main difference in the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX and the 2017 Easton Mako Beast BBCOR is that the Ghost X will offer more vibration reduction than the Mako Beast.

Will this bat come in a size 29"? I have an 11 year old that is moving up from a size 28" Mako.

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.

Both are listed as balanced bats, but which is more end loaded, Ghost X or the Prime 918?

It is hard to say whether the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX or the LS Prime 918 is more balanced than the other. With that said, one will certainly be pleased with the swing weight feel of the 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX.

Cameron Expert

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?"

How does this bat compare to the Louisville Prime 918? Price is the same, which bat is the best for the money?

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.

Is this bat honestly worth the money? Is this bat like the MAKO Beast?

This 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18GX) is a two-piece bat, features an all-composite design and is BBCOR rated. Typically bats that feature those specifications usually run anywhere from $400 - $450 in price. As well, since Easton bats perform really well historically, I think it is justified that Easton lists the bat at this price. This bat will be the 2018 continuation model of the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST BBCOR bat.

What's the difference between the 2017 Mako Beast and the Ghost x BBCOR?

Is this bat okay for USSSA play?

This 2018 Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB18GX) would be permitted for use in USSSA play due to it being a BBCOR rated bat. BBCOR .50 certification brings the allowable performance below the USSSA 1.15 Performance Rating. As well, BBCOR bats have a 2 5/8" barrel (which is allowed for USSSA play as well). Therefore, this bat will be permitted for USSSA play.
