Pros: Its a sleeper.
Cons: It doesn't cost enough.
Pros: got this for my kid he loved it
Cons: no cons
Pros: Great pop. Son loves it and prepares kids for -3 in next season
Cons: Only con so far is the white grip. Removed it first thing. looks good but gets dirty fast which makes it look trashy.
Pros: It is a really good bat Definatly worth the money has good pop and has no sting to the ha d has a nice big sweet spot it was broken in the day I got it
Cons: Gets to dirty the quickly the first day it was already brown and it
Pros: This bat is best bang for your buck!
Cons: no cons..get this bat!
Pros: Great pop and balance. My 12yr old plays 13u travel ball and if he continues to move up I knew that 14u would require drop 3, so I chose to ease the transition with a drop 5 this season. He loves it and is still getting around on that fast ball inside.
Pros: Less than a month after purchase my son hit his first HR. Now approximately a month after that first HR we just left a tournament where he cranked three. Several others on the team are beginning to hit with it as well. if i can get some of the still shots from his first HR ill submit them for action shots with the bat.
Cons: Not really anything negative to say. There is a little vibration if you do not get a solid hit.
Pros: huge barrel huge pop 1 pc performance end loaded inexpensive
Cons: 1 pc swings like a 30/27 heavy really white
Pros: feel and balance is just how my son likes it. Slightly end loaded
Cons: average pop. decent if itâ€™s hit precisely on the sweet spot which seems smaller than expected

Besides the color and one being 2 3/4" dia. and the other being 2 5/8" dia., is there a difference between the two 2018 USSSA Beast X-5 bats? What is the advantage of one size of diameter over the other?
There is no performance difference between the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 and the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX5. You touched on the two major differences in the colorways and barrel diameters. The larger barrel (2 3/4") diameter will give you a larger surface area for contact, but occasionally will have more durability issues than the 2 5/8" option.
Is this bat comparable to the Combat Maxum?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 is a one-piece alloy just like the Combat Maxum. However, the Beast X is end loaded whereas the Combat Maxum is balanced.
My son has been using the 2015 XL1 and loves it. What is the current comparable bat?
Considering that 2015 XL1 was an end loaded, two-piece composite bat, I would recommend checking out the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK5. This 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 is another good bat but with it being a one-piece aluminum he would certainly notice an uptick in vibrations felt on contact.
What is the barrel length difference between the Beast X and the Ghost X? Meaning, how much larger is the sweet spot on the Ghost X vs. the Beast X?
Both the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 and the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 will have new X-Tended barrel designs resulting in larger sweet spots.
My son has been using the 2016 Easton XL3 (drop 8) the last 2 seasons. How does the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 compare to that bat?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 is basically the 2018 version of the 2016 XL3 he has been swinging. The Beast X -5 offers an end loaded swing weight, same as the 2016 XL3 -8, just 3 ounces heavier overall.
Does this bat have good pop? Would a composite bat have better pop?
Unfortunately, we do not have reviews yet on this 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18BX58). However, with time, I believe the reviews will accumulate and be pretty solid. Overall, I do not think that a composite barreled bat will have any more potential for performance when compared to this bat.
Will this bat be allowed under the new 2018 USA bat licensing rules?
The 2018 Easton Beast X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX58 is not USA approved, so it will not be legal for play in USA Baseball leagues.
