Pros:  Balanced, easy to swing, big barrel, lots of POP My son loves this bat for his transition to bbcor and for tournaments where it is required.

Cons:  The current grip is not very thick and has no tapered rubber end so there is more sting. Good if you have small hands I guess. Also the grip is quite tacky and abrasive and he said it tore up his batting gloves. Added Lizard Grip and problem solved.

What's the difference between this bat and the USA Beast X? Which one is higher performing?

While both bats will feature a one-piece, aluminum design and an end-loaded swing weight, the barrel diameter and league certification will be different for these bats. The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX5) has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter and will be USSSA-certified (1.15 BPF). The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18BX5) has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and is approved for USA play. USA-certified bats are lower performing than USSSA-certified bats.

My son dented three of the 31"/21 oz Easton S3's in a short fall season. One of the bats was able to be warrantied and Easton gave me the Beast X -8. However, less than a month later, he dented that bat. My son has always used Easton since 8U. Never had a problem till now. He is 12 years old, 5'7" and weighs 190 lbs. Could he be too strong for the bat? What bat size and drop would you recommend?

I would say that your player is probably too strong for the -10 and -8 bats. I would recommend this 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX5) in the largest 32"/27 oz size. I would believe that he should be able to get solid durability using that bat. However, if the -5's get to be too light for him, the next move would be to the -3 BBCOR bats used in high school play.

Does this bat dent easy? My son hits the ball hard and tends to dent bats badly. Is this a bat that can handle practice and games without denting?

The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX5 is a one piece alloy bat so there is potential to dent this, much like a composite bat has the potential to crack. However, the Beast X utilizes ATAC Alloy to create the strongest and most powerful barrel Easton has ever released.

Is this equivalent to the XL3 or the S3?

This 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX5) will be most similar to an XL3 model since it has a one-piece, all-alloy design and end-loaded swing weight.

Does this meet the new national bat standards to be implemented in 2018?

This 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX5) will meet standards needed for use in all divisions of USSSA play in 2018. However, it will not meet the USABat certification that will be implemented in Little League, Pony, Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken, Dixie, Pony, AABC or Dizzy Dean in 2018. The ability to use this bat for play in a specific league or tourney will be dependent upon the certification needed for that league or tourney.
