Pros:  I was skeptical about this new USA bat standard. I thought they were charging us parents the same amount of money for a bat that didn't perform as well. My son wanted this Ghost X because it's most similar to his mako beast but I think it's better. The pop is great off this thing. He never complains about sting in his hands anymore either. 11/10.

Cons:  None yet.

Pros:  We all know that the bat will not be as hot as the USSSA ones...but this model is not that bad. If you hit it square...it will fly. Can't compare to the other models but I am happy with this bat... Will only get hotter as we use it more. Smooth and clean design as is the norm with Easton bats...

Cons:  Loud ping when the ball is hit 29 inch comes in at about 19.5 ounces the price

Pros:  Really solid feeling. Little to no sting. Ball seems to fly off bat ......but

Cons:  A good 30-40 feet shorter than last years Beast. So 240 is now 200. MAKO Youth Ash Wood 2 1/4" bat goes further consistently. OK if I can expect break in, but Easton says no break in is necessary.

Pros:  Obviously this is a new bat on the market and there are a lot of questions about the new USA bat standard. I broke down and bought a 30” drop 10 Ghost X and my son absoltelty loves it. He loves the feel of the composite bat and continues to say how he does not even feel the ball coming off the bat. The biggest diffence I see is not with the pop of the bat, but how many more balls he is hitting hard that he was just missing with the 2 1/4 barrell. With a composite 2 5/8” barrell, he is now putting balls in play that would have been fouled off with the smaller diameter bat. He feels like he is going to the plate with tennis raquet in his hands which has given him a ton of confidence. He picked an inside the park HR on his first hit by sending a ball to the gap that rolled to the fence. Balls that were singles are now extra base hits and he has tremendous confidence at the plate. Other kids on our team that also have Makos notice a different feel with the Ghost X.

Cons:  The Ghost X will make a lot of money disappear, but it’s worth it for our family and is a bat he can use for the next 2-3 years.

Pros:  Bat is well constructed with a good balance.

Cons:  I usually don’t write reviews but feel compelled to with this product. I think the velocity restriction has gone too far. The average exit velocity is 5% to 7% slower after 500 swings than my son’s previous 1.15 bat. In fact, we purchased a maple Louisville slugger wooden bat on sale for $19.99 at the time as this purchase. My son gets slightly more distance and better exit velocity off of the LS, which is a couple ounces heavier. I would not buy this bat again. I strongly believe my son gets an equal performance from a much cheaper wood bat. I am concerned that this restriction is going to drive players from youth organizations using the USA requirement. Finally, the bat does still vibrate quite a bit when the ball misses the sweet spot toward the end of the bat or below the barrell.

Pros:  Feels light for -10. Bigger barrel. There is enough pop in this bat. I would not classify our game testing results as similar to wood. Some well struck balls from a couple players that used in a game. Probably a bit less than a broken in mako, but as a coach, hitting fungos I didn't notice a drastic difference from the 1.15. Which begs the question, WHY CHANGE TO A NEW STANDARD?!

Cons:  Cost. Plenty of good bats still in circulation and these new ones don't seem all that different to us so far. Our organization is allowing both the old bats and the new bats, at least for 1 year until we see how this pans out. Let kids hit homeruns and if you are worried about safety, play 50/70 and move them back.

Pros:  This guy at practice brought a bunch of these bats to "demo" them and I like the "32 inch, 25 ounce". This bat had so much pop and right when I picked it up to try it out I knew this is going to be a great bat for. Thanks so much Easton for this new bat, great job on the bat.

Cons:  nothing wrong

Pros:  This bat is basically like hitting a slightly less stinging, light swing weight wood bat with a full size barrel.

Cons:  $350 for a bat that doesn't hold a candle to the one your kid used last year. A good 30-50 feet shorter, and on par or less performance than my sons Marruci Cutch youth wood bat. The bat also is not as sting dampening as the old bats.

Pros:  It is drop 10

Cons:  Mot much else. No pop, a "tinny" terrible sound, and almost no feedback other than vibration, and fairly expensive for such sub par performance. My son got it early to see how the new little league bats would perform. After 3 months of use he has decided to either find a different bat, perhaps just go with aluminum alloy, or go to wood for little league.

Pros:  Good swinging light bat. Well balanced.

Cons:  My son is the 3 hitter in the lineup because he has power and excellent contact. Since buying this bat his production is lousy. We have actually in most cases had him go back and use his previous Demarini and he performs great. I understand pop will decrease but this is terrible. I am very surprised as we paid a lot of money for what we thought would be the best bat. I also feel this is kind of silly and will just detour more kids from playing regular little league type divisions as apposed to some type of travel or other division where these bats are not required.

Pros:  We purchased this bat (32” -10) on Saturday (11/18) and I was terrified that it might be too big for my 8 yr old son... but I want him to grow into it so thats why we bought it bigger. Well we came home, set up his hitting net and tee... After his very first swing with it, I knew we had made a good call on the length and weight. He swung it like he had been swinging it forever already. He loved the feel of it... he loved the colors of it... he was so excited... so all I can say is that my son loves it so far.

Cons:  None so far... might find some later but for now, very happy with it.

Was this review helpful ? 3 3

Pros:  Good pop, well balanced, and nice sound. Put this bat in a good hitter’s hands with sound mechanics and the ball jumps off the barrel. My son is a contact hitter with gap power (10 year old) and he is driving balls just as hard as his old Combat Maxum. The larger barrel makes up for any sweet spot issues. This is a really nice and well made bat! As with all eastons, feels about an ounce, ounce and a half heavier. Lots of ooohs and awwws when my son is taking batting practice and he’s on the smaller side. This is a full 2 piece composite bat not an alloy hybrid and more balanced than end loaded like the makos.

Cons:  Not a fan of Easton’s grip but even so there is little to no sting. Parents/coaches complaining about this bat will find ALL NEW USA BATS have the same or similar issues on “homeruns.” Unless your kid is used to hitting multiple homeruns every game, I wouldnt put 2 cents into the “no pop” argument people have complained about. The cost is high but is the bat evey hitter gravitates to wittiut a doubt.

Pros:  Bat looks good, swings balanced, not much else

Cons:  The cost of course is a major con. Not sure why LL went to the USA bat standard because these bats are dead. At least 30 feet less per hit with this bat. Broken in, its not much better. I really didn't see many hits before the USA bat standard came out that worried me about players health, so this just seems like another moneymaker and power grab to me

Was this review helpful ? 5 5

Pros:  They look and feel good in the hands

Cons:  Bought two of these bats for my 10 and 11 year old sons. Both play select ball and Little League so we have experience with multiple bats for both organizations (USSSA and LL)...both are excellent hitters for contact and power but these USA bats are not only bad for pop but the consistent sting is so bad they prefer to use a wood bat. My sons and every kid we have spoke with absolutely dislikes everything about these bats. This review is for the USA Bat technology itself, not so much for Easton. We’ve had great experience with the Makos so with all things considered we hope these Eastons hold up for the 2018 Little League season but we are not happy about the performance of them. This specific bat could use a better grip, we replaced both grips before initisl use. If you play Little League, “it is what it is”!

Was this review helpful ? 4 3

Pros:  Okay guys, I hesitated to put a review in after getting the bat. I didn't want to be critical with reviewing the 2018 Easton Ghost X bat because I know there is some breaking in time with composite bats. I don't think it would be fair to judge any composite bat the first few weeks of purchase and use. The 2018 Easton Ghost X (drop -10) is no different. Honestly, right out of the wrapper, my 8-year old son used it and immediately we both noticed the bat did not have any pop. After the first 400-500 hits, I noticed a little more pop and a little more distance. Now we've had it for over a month now and over 1,000 hits, I'm seeing more and more pop. The ball is finally popping off this bat! The rating IMO is not fair of this bat. Let me also be clear that my son hasn't used other USABats yet, but we are really noticing an improvement in the performance of this bat the more my son uses it. The barrel size is awesome! BTW, my son was using the 2015 Easton Orange Mako.

Cons:  1.20 bpf is the new standard.

Pros:  Looks cool. Good Balance

Cons:  It's not Easton's fault. They're required to make a bat to fit within the new USA Bat standard. DO NOT waste your money on this bat. My son could hit a ball further with a broom stick. If you used garbage bats before, then this will seem like a decent improvement; but still not worth the money. I agree with several of the other posts, it delivers about 50 ft less distance than the Easton Mako. I'll be shocked if my son matches last years offensive power production.

Pros:  My 11U boy really loved this bat at the start of training this season. It has a good sound when the ball is well hit and no vibration in the handle.

Cons:  As a baseball club we have broke 3 of these bats with less than 500 cuts. All of our training has been done indoors with real baseballs. They have not been used in cold weather or with dimpled balls and still breaking. Easton will only provide 1 replacement bat. We decided to go with the Demarini Zen USA -10. My son loves it. It has just as much pop and no vibration. We have not had one break yet.

Now, he is coming from the 3 and 1/4 barrel so that is probably why. Bat has better pop than we thought it was going to have due to the new standards. So far so good.

Pros:  this bat will produce base hits, thats all that matters in baseball. homeruns are nice, but contact and putting the ball in play is what counts. the DADS writing reviews about their son having power and getting less distance and so on, have no clue about true baseball, its not the bat, its your player, those dads play through their kids. its not the bat, its the batter. put the ball in play and make the defense work, name of the game. thats what makes a ball player. A bats a bat, a kid that makes contact and puts ball in play is a true ball player. distance means nothing, especially at this age.

My son is not a slouch by any means, I mean he was hitting balls off the fence last year in coach pitch with an $80 Easton of which I don't even know the model. This year the same contact has yielded balls that barely leave the infield using a bat 4 1/2 times the price. Rip Off

Pros:  that bat is durable. i used it all winter for fielding practice for break in. Easily hit 1000 balls. The balls can fly if you hit the ball correctly. But thats where it ends. The bigger bats are better we have a 31 -5 and its a completely different bat over the fence everytime with good contact and no sting.

Cons:  The kids started using the bat in the spring and i think every kid has stood on second still shaking their hands. With the -10 they are all base hits. The bat is really end loaded so the balance is awful if you have trouble driving hands at the ball.

Pros:  The bat does dampen any vibration but thats really the only pro.

Cons:  Without any reliable reviews on the new USA bats we bought the bat because of our postive experience with Easton in the past. Realizing the USA bats won't be like the old USAAA bats early on I accepted the poor sound, feel, and pop was just part of the new standard. Then we finally were able to get out of the cages and hit outside. Solid hits that normally should be well into the outfield barley made it to second base. We then used some of the other kids less expensive alloy bats and had much better success. I couldn't be more disappointed that I spent over $600 for my two sons and had to go back and spend another few hundred dollars on "lessor" bats because of the Ghost poor performance. If you are looking at bats do not spend the extra money for this bat.

Pros:  Cage hitting looked great wit this bat over the winter. Once we got out on a field, I'd watch my 11 year old make great contact with ball hitting it square. Instead of a line drive in the gap, it would come off the bat like a looping liner to shallow outfield. The USA bat standard is a ridiculous ploy to extract more $$$ out of parents and this bat is the poster child for this scam. My son plays AAU and thankfully they have not adopted USA bat standards. We quickly picked up an old 2014 30 inch -9 Easton Mako and now the ball is being driven to the fence over and over. Just found out this bat was de-certified and I can't wait to ship it back to Easton.

Cons:  - zero pop at all

Pros:  It looks good

Cons:  This bat has zero pop and it vibrates bad. Three members of my team purchased this bat. All are frustrated with the vibration and lack of pop. I would think twice about purchasing this bat.

Pros:  It seems to hold up ok. Very balanced. Made it thru 40 games with a few teammates using out randomly.

Cons:  Didn't realize how dead this bat really was until we purchased a new different brand bat. This thing has been very dead from the start and recently has gotten worse. It was broken in properly, and maintained as recommended (with the exception of a couple teammates wanting to try it). It just has no pop, and for a multi piece composite bat it has plenty of sting. There are better options for less money. However I'm sure easton will fix the problems with this bat, and have better usa bats the second year.

Pros:  No sting, outstanding balance and feel.

Cons:  Our team has gone through 3 bats in 3 months. One in a game, one during live BP, and another one in BP with a pitching machine with real baseballs at 43mph. I have witnessed just as good pop come off of a wood and aluminum 750c Easton as this one.

Pros:  Bat looks great. Weight distribution is good. The bat feels good in your hand.

Cons:  The bat simply has no pop. The sweet spot is extremely small and it is very unforgiving with regards to hand sting. We just finished our state all-star tournament and it cracked in two places and the barrel began to separate from the Connexion joint. Overall I was very unhappy with the bat especially for the price. My son quit swinging it due to its lack of performance.

Pros:  The bat looks sharp, hits every bit as well if not better than my sons old cheap bat he had last year. I got this bat for cold weather games and practice and he loves it.

Cons:  Sound is a dull thud when hit. Weighed a tiny bit over 20oz for a 30 inch bat when I weighed it.

Pros:  This bat actually has decent pop! I picked up a 30/19 for my son for when facing faster pitching. He has another USA bat in -8 for most batting situations. Now, I can't get him to put this one down. He swings it fast and with a lot of control, equaling impressive hits. Aside from the higher-end Axe and DiMarini USA options, this bat seems to have just as much, or more, pop as all the others regardless of price. Overall, I think this is a very high value bat.

Cons:  Cheap grip. Not an issue because we replace most stock grips with Lizard Skin. A little bit of vibration, but not nearly as bad as the high-end Eastons.

My son is 11 years old, 5', and weighs approx 104 lbs. He uses an Easton S3 now. I'm not wanting to go much heavier. What would you recommend for him? He needs a lighter bat. His bat now is a 29 inch and I'm afraid a 30 would be too long.

Based on your son's current height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 in a 30 inch model. With that said, this bat is no longer legal in a 30 inch length. If you feel his current 29/19 bat is too big though then there is certainly nothing wrong with dropping down to a 28/18.

Is it just the Easton Ghost 30/20 that is illegal for Little League?

Correct. The only size of the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 to be banned by USA Baseball was the 30" / 20oz.

What is Easton's plans on the 30"/20 oz ban?

Claims for that banned model can be sent to GhostReturn@Easton.com, or customers can call them at 1-844-531-7079. As far as we are aware, customers need to provide a proof of purchase, then Easton is sending a free shipping label for them to send the item back. Once they receive it, they will send the customer a voucher for Easton products. We cannot confirm the voucher amount at this time, but it will be at least the amount the customer paid originally for the item.

My son currently has the Ghost X 2 3/4" bat for travel ball. It is a 29"/19 oz. We are looking for a USA certified bat for Little League. Besides the Easton Ghost X what other bat do you recommend? He likes the two-piece design with a balanced weight.

I would also recommend taking a look at the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo CF Zen -10 USA. That is also a two-piece, composite design with a balanced swing weight.

My son is 10 and weighs about 75 pounds, not big and powerful buy any stretch, but when he hits it square he can hit it pretty well. Worried the 30in is way too much bat, he currently swings a 29 but will he soon outgrow a 29?

I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 in a 29 inch length. If you expect a growth spurt in the near future, I would recommend going up to a 30 inch and then you can use the bat for a longer period of time.

Based on your player's specifications, I would recommend either the 30" or 31" 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10. Both would be great fits for your player.

My son prefers a thicker bat handle. We've viewed the Ghost X and the handles seem too slender. Any problem wrapping the handle with an addition bat wrap, over the existing one?

Bought the Ghost X and removed the plastic wrap but under that there is some shiny plastic like film over the Ghost X writing. Does that get removed somehow or is that actually part of the bat? Doesn't seem right to have a slick film on the barrel.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 has a clear coat like finish over the parts of the barrel that say "Ghost X." This is completely normal and not something that is to be removed.

My son has previously used a Mako 30 in/19 oz (-11) and it seemed to work well for him. He is 11 yrs old, 4' 11' and 150 lbs. He is also considered a power hitter. Which size and weight of bat do you suggest in the Ghost?

If your son used the Easton Mako previously, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 would be the most comparable option, just an ounce heavier. At his height and weight, I would suggest a 31" 21 oz. size.

What is the proper way to break in the ghost X -10?

I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 in a 31/21. This bat features a USA stamp which is approved for play in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, & Pony.

Based on your player's height and weight, would recommend getting the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 in a 31 inch model. If you feel he can handle a 32 inch bat then there would be nothing wrong going in that direction.

Based on the information you provided, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 as it will be the most similar model available to that MAKO that you were swinging previously.

My son is 9 years old, 4'7" and 66 lbs. I am trying to decide if he can use the Easton Beast X hybrid in 29"- 19 oz or if I should go with the Easton Ghost X in a 28"- 18 oz. Which model and bat size would you recommend?

For a player of your size we would recommend using a 29 inch bat. A player that is 9 years of age can then either go with a -11 or -10 length to weight ratio bat; the correct length to weight ratio to use will depend on how strong the player is based on the weight of their current bat and how well they handle it. Since the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 will feature better overall balance compared to the 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10 then we would recommend the Ghost X if seeking a -10 model. If looking at -11 then the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL would be a great bat to get.

We have not seen anything that would indicate that the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 is better or worse than the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL. Comes down to whether or not you need a lighter bat, such as the Ghost X Hyperlite, or value vibration reduction, which you would receive on the Ghost X.

My son is 11, weighs 165lbs and is 5'5. Last year in 10u Dixie he used a combat 29-17. We are nervous about going up in ounces too fast. What size bat do you suggest and would he struggle with too much of a difference between last year and this spring? We are trying to decide between this bat and the Easton Hyperlite.

Obviously each player will differ in what size bat they are comfortable but given your player's specifications, I would suggest either a 31" or 32" size bat. Now the increase in weight could be noticeable if you were to jump to a drop 10 bat like this 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10, but I you are more than welcome to purchase this bat and take dry swings with and it still return it if your player is unable to handle that amount of weight. We do recommend that all players swing the heaviest bat in which they are comfortable with in order to ensure the best overall performance though.

I recently purchased this bat for my son and the amount of vibration from the bat is somewhat unbearable. I thought he may be exaggerating but after trying for myself I realized he was not. Do you have any recommendations for this issue?

The only remedy that might help out with vibration would be purchasing some thicker grip tape and re-wrapping the handle. The grip tape featured on the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 is 1.4mm thick, so I would recommend trying to get some 1.8mm grip tape to put on the bat.

My kid is using an Easton MAKO 30 drop 10. Looking at a bat which can be used in Little League. Looked at the Rawlings Quatro, Ghost X and Voodoo. Which should I buy? Which will be equivalent to the MAKO?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 is the model that has replaced the MAKO of the past. This would be the most comparable model if seeking to replace an older Easton MAKO and would be legal for Little League in 2018.

Last year my son used a 29in -10 Easton S3 and loved it. What bat is closest to that?

The first thing you will want to consider is the type of bat you need. This could be either the new USA baseball bats or the traditional USSSA baseball bats. AABC, Babe Ruth/Cal Ripken, Dixie, Little League, and PONY will all be affected by the USABat rule change, but USSSA will not. Currently, USSSA Baseball will allow the use of a bat that carries the new USABat stamp (as long as barrel diameter, drop weight, material specifications, etc. match the specific division's requirements). I say this just so you are aware before making your purchase. Now, if you are interested in a bat that is similar to the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18BX108 if you need a USSSA bat. This will feature a balanced, one-piece, all alloy construction similar to that of the S3. If you need a USA bat, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10 for those same reasons.

How do you break-in this bat?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 fairly hot out of the wrapper. However, it is still best to take about 100-150 swings off a tee to help break the bat in. It is best to rotate the barrel about a quarter turn every few swings, and to gradually work your swing speed up from about 50%.

In regard to weight, the 19 oz should work for him as long as it will not be a drastic change from what he used in the past.

My son is 12 years old, 5'4" and 115 pounds. What length and weight do you recommend?

Based on your son's height and weight, I would suggest a 31" bat. At 12 years old, players swing anywhere from a -10 to a -5 bat, and it is difficult to suggest a weight of bat for an individual player since we are unable to see the player's swing and how strong they are. I would say most players at that age would swing a -8, like the 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX8.

Based on your son's height and weight we would recommend getting a -8 model in a 32 inch length. One bat to consider would be the 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX8.

My son will turn 10 this February. He is 4’5 and 67 pounds. Would the Hyperlite 29/18 or Ghost 28/18 be a better choice?

A typical 10 year old will swing a drop 10 to get prepared for the next years when he needs to use a drop 5 or drop 3. A 28/18 would be a great choice for your player. The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GX10) is a very well balanced bat and will be great for younger players.

Is there a pop/performance difference between the Ghost X Hyperlite YBB18GXHL and the regular Ghost X YBB18GX10?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 and the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL will share similar performance/pop capabilities. The Ghost X, with its two-piece design, is better equipped to reduce from vibration. Assuming bat speed is constant with both models, then the heavier bat will offer slightly better performance (Ghost X).

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 is best suited for a Pony league player that is 12 years or younger. Ideally, a player that is 13 years old and is 5'5" and 110 lbs in Pony would be best served with a 31 inch 23 ounce model, such as the 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX8.

Last year my son used a 31 inch 28oz BBcore. Now the new USA bats are out not sure if he should use a drop 10 or drop 5. He is now 13 yrs old 5'7 160 lbs. He will turn 14 before season in spring. He did very well with the 28oz bat last year. over .600 average with 5 hrs first year in junior league.

If he's required to swing a USA bat, I would recommend the -5. The -10 will be too light for him.

My son is about 80lbs and 4'10. He swings for contact not power. Either bat would already be 1 or 2 oz heavier than his old bat before the change to the USA Bats. What would be the differences between the Ghost X vs. the Ghost X Hyperlite? Do you recommend one over the other?

The two big differences between 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL and the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 will be the one-piece design in the hyperlite as well as it being 1 oz lighter.

My 9 year old son has the 2016 COMBAT MAXUM -12 Youth Baseball Bat: MAXYB112 but feels it's getting a little light. With the changes in the new bat rules, would the Easton Ghost X -10 or the Hyperlite -11 be better?

Both are good options, however, if you are already concerned about your current bat being too light I would probably recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 for your son.

Knowing that bat has a break in period, is there a point that it will go "dead" after so many hits?

The lifespan of bats is difficult to pin point. there are a lot of factors that can limit or prolong the lifespan of a bat. A bat will have a longer lifespan if it is stored inside for the winters, and does not hit dimple balls. There is no hit limit with bats.

My son is looking to purchase the Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat (2 5/8 barrel). He is 59 inches tall (so 4 foot 11) and weighs 100 pounds. He has been comfortably swinging an Easton Mako 30/19 (-11) for about half a year and hit well with it. For the GHOST, what size bat would you recommend purchasing?

It is suggested that your player swings a 30" bat. If your player is comfortable going to a 31" bat, that would alright as well. The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GX10) would be a good fit for your player due to its balanced feature.

Being that the barrel will not be as long as the Mako or Beast (USSSA) do you think these USA bats will swing a little easier?

Overall, the barrel lengths featured on this 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GX10), the 2016 MAKO (SL16MK10B) and the 2017 MAKO BEAST (SL17MK10B) should be similar (the USA models of bats might have slightly smaller lengths). As well, the weighting on the bats should be pretty similar. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to say that this 2018 Easton Ghost X USA Baseball Bat is easier to swing than the other bats.

Do you know if there will be USA approved bats that aren't tee ball bats with a length of less than 27 inches? A lot of 6 and 7 year old kids play in these divisions and 27" can be really big.

Unfortunately, I do not think USA approved bats will be made with a length of less than 27 inches. I would recommend trying a -12 bat like the 2018 Easton S450 -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat: YSB18S450.
