Pros:  My son is 11 and has been using the bat ( 30/20 ) for about a week now. The bat has good pop out of the box. He said the bat has zero vibration. Its a well balanced bat he used he Louisville Slugger 517 (29/19) last year. This is so well balanced it actually feels lighter to him.

Cons:  its a great looking bat but the white paint is already chipping unfortunately.

Pros:  My son has had the 30/20 Easton Ghost X for a few weeks and has gone through the breakin stage. The bat is balanced and has no vibration to the handle. The sound of the bat is a loud ceramic. The durability of the bat appears to be very good.

Cons:  Not as much pop as the Demarini Retooled -10.

Pros:  The Ghost feels slightly more balanced than the new Demarini Zen. The distance off both was pretty similar. The Ghost has a very unique sound. After breaking the bat in, we hit about 500 balls between the cage and the field. in the end, my son said the Ghost X was his favorite of the two.

Cons:  none so far

Pros:  My 11u son used this bat (30/20) in his last fall tournament. He almost went yard several times with 300' fence. He has used the Beast and the 917 but the goast x has way more pop. Well worth the $$$.

Cons:  Not yet.

Pros:  Great feel and pop in -10. I need two bats because I play in two leagues that require 2 3/4" and 2 5/8" barrels-so I'll probably get the 2 5/8" for when I need it. Performance is great and the ball feels good coming off. Really balanced.

Cons:  The custom lizard skin grip is nice, but I usually prefer athletic tape

Pros:  Has a lot of pop coming off the bat, my 10 yr. old loves this bat, not to mention he follows the college world series and that's all he see's them using. He's been swinging a 28 (-10) but know I have just upgraded him to a 29 (-10)

Cons:  The cons are, I just sent the 28 inch back in because of dents, my son is ten and plays 11u major, I don't know if it's because he is swinging the 28 inch and the 29 inch may be a little stronger so we are trying that in terms of longevity.

Pros:  It has a very big sweet spot, no sting what so ever,and it hits line drives even when it is not good contact,it is just the right amount of weight for you to be able to swing fast but still heavy enough to drive it over the outfielders heads,very good durability.

Cons:  None yet

Pros:  When it was working correctly, the bat had a nice pop to it. My son really liked it until the dents and dead spots happened and the handle fell off.

Cons:  We've sent this bat back 3 times for warranty issues. It dents very easily. One bat dented on the first day of use. When it does dent, the "sweet spot" is considerably altered. You have to send it back to Louisville and it takes approximately a month to get a different bat.   The experience with their customer service is very frustrating.

Pros:  My son plays 10u and really likes this bat. It has great pop, large sweet spot and very minimal vibration. He was hitting singles with his old bat, and we could tell the ball exit speed was an issue, but not with this bat. He is now hitting over the fence, ground rule doubles, triples, etc. This is really an outstanding bat.

Cons:  There are a lot of quality comments about the bat, specifically dents. We have not had an issue with dents however, we use a sleeve for batting cages and/or we use an old bat. The issue we had is that the knob broke off after his 2nd game. It was a straight break at the neck, like it was a weak spot and possibly just a fluke. Justbats replaced this for us and so far so good with the 2nd go round. I will post again if there are any more issues. I still would recommend the bat.

Pros:  The price is right for a young 8U player playing in competition. My son loved the way it was weighted. Said he was able to swing it well. It does have great pop when he got ahold of the ball.

Cons:  The paint chips very very quickly. After half of a season and a few thousand balls in a cage it looks like he needs a new bat. Although I know its just the paint he doesnt get that they are not cracks. If he hit the ball wrong it did vibrate a lot. which in my opionion im fine with. They need to know when theyve made a mistake.

what's the difference between this bat and the Ghost X Hyperlite?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 is a two piece fully composite bat with a -10 length to weight ratio, while the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is a one piece fully composite bat with a -12 length to weight ratio, meaning it will be 2 ounces lighter at the same length than the Ghost X -10 bat.

Is this bat out lawed by USSSA?

To our knowledge the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 has not been banned by USSSA. The USA model of this bat in 30" / 20 oz was deemed illegal for little league play.

My 10 year old just got this bat, but I have also seen it as YBB10GX10. What is the difference?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 is a two-piece composite model with a 2 3/4" barrel diameter with the USSSA/1.15 BPF stamp. The other bat you have listed, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10, is the USA version of this bat. Essentially, the USA model will perform lower due to thicker barrel wall designs and features a smaller barrel diameter at 2 5/8". The USA standard is now being followed by Little League, Dixie, Pony, Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth, Dizzy Dean and others.

Can you use this bat for little league seniors baseball?

No, the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 does not have the new USA stamp that is required for Little League, so it would not be legal.

Does this bat require a break in period?

With the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 being a composite bat, it would benefit from a break in period. Generally speaking, it usually only takes a couple of hitting sessions off a tee or soft toss while rotating the bat between swings to get an even break in over the entire barrel.

My 11 year old has used a 29/19 for 2 seasons. He is a power hitter. Would you stay with the 29 or move to the 30/20?

Would you recommend this bat or the DeMarini CF Zen?

I think both bats would be a great choice, and both are very similarly constructed since they are both two-piece, fully composite designs. Honestly it comes down to whether you prefer Easton or DeMarini more than anything.

My son always preferred the Mako [2 1/4"] bats (which were the -10 and end-loaded). Now with these senior league bats, the end-loads start at -8. My player is 10 years old. Should I get the balanced -10 or the end-loaded -8?

At 10 years old, I would feel more comfortable suggesting this 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX10) even though it will be more balanced feeling. Unfortunately, I just think the -8 Ghost X Bat will be much too heavy at 10 years old. I would only recommend a -8 bat if you felt especially certain he could handle that weight.

My son is around 55-56 inches and weighs right at 70 pounds (10.5 years old). Is he best suited for the Ghost X-10 or the Hyperlite version (-12)?

Based off the information you've provided I would recommend a bat length of 29 inches. I would take his strength and level of competition into consideration when choosing the drop weight. In my opinion, I would recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 for your player.

My son is 58 inches & 77 lbs. What size bat do you suggest in length & oz?

My son is 4'2" and weighs 56 lbs. He currently uses a 2017 Easton S3 (27/17 2-3/4). We were thinking of the Easton Ghost X, but cannot decide whether to buy or not. What would you recommend? If you do recommend upgrading, what size would you recommend?

Based on your player's height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting a bat in the 28" length. Your old S3 was a one-piece, all-alloy bat. This 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX10) will be a two-piece, all-composite bat. If you have interest in a two-piece, all-composite bat; I would recommend this bat highly. If you felt more comfortable jumping to a 29"/19 oz size to give more room for growth for your player, that should be okay (even though it may be a bit large to start out).

My son will be swinging a 27" or 28". What’s the difference between this bat and the new Hyperlite bat?

This 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX10) will differ from the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) as this bat is a two-piece, all-composite bat with a -10 length-to-weight ratio while the Hyperlite is a one-piece, all-composite bat with a -12 length-to-weight ratio. Overall, the Hyperlite will be a lighter swinging bat and feature a stiffer feel at contact (stiffer feel does not mean the bat performs higher, it is just a feature a player will have to decide if they like).

How would you compare this to the Cat 7 -8?

Both bats are going to perform very well, and both are one-piece, all alloy bats.

What is the difference between this bat and the 2016 version? Does this bat have the 40% longer barrel like the 2016 model?
