Great pop! Kyuss Parent

Pros: Pop , little to no vibration. Very endloaded feel to feel like a bbcor bat . My son is using bbcor bats for middle school , but wanted a usssa bat to use in 13u travel ball for more pop . He likes the pop of this bat and still feels like his bbcor bat he uses in middle school .

Cons: Short barrel . This bat has unbelievable pop , but the short barrel will tell on you when you miss the sweet spot . I think the short barrel is only on the drop 5 model of this bat .

Amazing bat for the price. Vincent Boswell Coach

Pros: This bat has such a great feel. I don't think the sweet spot is that big but it sure seems like it. My 9 year old is absolutely crushing it. The catches on his team is a big boy and is just annihilating the ball with this bat.

Cons: It is heavy so against the faster pitchers it's tough for my little guy to get it around in time so he has a lighter bat for that situation.

Pros: Bat is very end loaded, it has a wood bat feel and design. This is as close as it gets to simulating your wood bat practices and game use bats. The pop on the bat is phenomenal. It does have a smaller barrel then most but like I said it’s true to a wood bat design. If you miss hit you week know, if you square the ball up it will reward you.

Have a question about the Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

What is the difference between the 2017MAKO and 2018 Ghost?
Coach
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 is a completely re-designed bat when compared to the 2017 MAKO. This bat will feature a new connection point technology for better vibration reduction and new composite technology for a larger sweet spot.
Cameron
What is the difference between Easton's Ghost X and Ghost?
matt
All 2018 Easton BASEBALL bats that are being released with the 2-piece, all-composite design (like this 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5) will be called the "Ghost X". Easton will be making the Ghost X for both the USSSA certification and USABat certification.
Ben
With the new bat regulations will this bat be legal for middle school and all travel baseball?
Skip
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 will be legal for travel ball, but I would verify with middle school rulings if they will allow USSSA.
Max
My grandson is 5'4" and weight is 126lbs. He is almost 13, would a 31 or 32 be better for him? He is a power hitter.
Julie
Based on your player's specifications, I would recommend the 31" option of the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5.
Tyler
What is the difference between the Easton SL18GX5 and the SL18GX58?
ST
The difference between the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 and the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX58 is the barrel diameter. You have a 2 3/4" barrel diameter with the SL18GX5 and a 2 5/8" barrel diameter with the SL18GX58.
Cameron
Why is the barrel on this bat so short compared to all the other models of the Ghost X? The USSSA -8 has the long barrel. The USA version of the -5 has the long barrel as well. Why does the USSSA -5 have such a short barrel?
Ryan
Unfortunately we would not know why there would be a difference in the barrel taper design of the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 compared to other models of the Ghost X.
Cameron
What is the difference between the SL18GX5 and the SL18GX58?
Jim Wenzbauer
Other than the colorway, the only difference between these two models will be their barrel diameter. The 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX5) features the larger 2 3/4" barrel diameter and the 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX58) will have a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
Taylor
Is it a 2 5/8"?
Tom
No, the Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 will incorporate a 2 3/4" barrel diameter.
Tyler
Does it say "Senior League" on the bat?
Jeff
The Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 is not stamped 'Senior League." This bat does however feature the USSSA/1.15 BPF thumbprint stamp.
Cameron
Is this bat legal for Cal Ripken?
Melodie
No, the Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX5) will not be approved for play in Cal Ripken. Cal Ripken will require a USA Baseball approved bat or a BBCOR.
John
Any idea if this bat being 2 3/4" barrel is approved for 13U in USSSA?
timothy mcdonald
Yes, this 2018 Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX5) is going to be approved for 13U USSSA use.
Ben
Is there a 2 5/8 version of this -5 bat?
Brady Wilder
We do not have a 2018 USSSA model of the Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 available in a 2 5/8'' diameter. We do have the 2019 Easton Ghost X Evolution -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL19GXE58 which is a 2 5/8'' barrel.
Tori
(1) What is the difference between the 2018 Mako and the 2019 Mako? (2) How long is the barrel on this bat in a 32 inch?
Brett
(1) There actually was not a MAKO bat made for the 2018 or 2019 season. The bat that replaced the MAKO was the Ghost X. In 2018, the Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX5) was built with the two-piece, all-composite design and a 2 3/4" barrel to it. The 2019 edition had the two-piece, all-composite design. However, the 2019 comes with a smaller 2 5/8" barrel. As well, the 2019 incorporates some new anti-vibration technology in the handle and a new end-cap to improve performance. Both bats feature a weighting that will make the barrel feel heavier. (2) From the end-cap to the barrel of this Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX5) in the 32" length, you will get a length reading of 13".
Ben
Is the barrel length of the 32" bat the same length of the barrel on the 31" bat?
Joseph
The length of the barrels on the Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5 would be proportional, regardless of the size selected.

Great balance Lane Parent

Pros: I bought this bat for my smallish 13 yr old still getting used to his first season with -5 bats. After looking all over and not being able to find a 29" -5(not wood) - this was what I settled with. 30" 25 -5. This one is by far the most balanced we've found - and has great pop. It feels like a smaller -10 bat, but has the same power as the heavier(feeling) -5 bats he's used. Very happy with it.

ZBOMB
The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V5 features the USSSA stamp and is up to USSSA standards of 1.15 BPF. The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 USA Baseball Bat: US8V5 is up to USA certification. The model you get would depend on what league you are playing in. If your league does not have any rules you would want the USSSA version, as it will have higher performance.

My son is 57' and 80lbs and is going to be playing 14u in the spring. Is this the lightest swing weight with good pop or is the Cat 8 better?
JP
The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V5 and Cat 8 are very similar bats in that they both will be one-piece alloy bats with a balanced swing weight. Given your players specifications, I do not believe you can go wrong with either of these models.
Tyler
The comparison shows the material as "aluminum, half and half" -what does that exactly mean? Our league requires one piece aluminum bats.
Mike
Rawlings states the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V5 is a hybrid bat due to the incorporation of composite material to construct the end cap, which is the only portion of the bat that is composite. For all intents and purposes, the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V5 is a one piece aluminum bat.

About the Brand

Rawlings is a major manufacturer of competitive team sports equipment and apparel for baseball, basketball, and football, as well as licensed MLB, NFL, and NCAA retail products. Rawlings is a major supplier to professional, collegiate, interscholastic and amateur organizations worldwide, including the Official Baseball Supplier to Major League Baseball.

The first real innovation in glove making occurred in 1912 when Rawlings Sporting Goods Company introduced the "Sure Catch" glove, which was "endorsed by leading players all over the country." The Sure Catch was a one-piece glove with sewn-in finger channels and looked better suited for a duck's foot than a man's hand. Catchers' mitts used at the time were large and bulky with a single leather thong passing for a web.

In 1920, Bill Doak, a journeyman pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, approached Rawlings with an idea for improving the baseball glove from a mere protective device to a genuine aid in fielding. The "Bill Doak" model was so revolutionary that it stayed in Rawlings' line until 1953. Its key feature was a multi-thong web laced into the first finger and thumb, which created for the first time in baseball's young life, a natural pocket.

In 1925, Rawlings unveiled a three-fingered fielder's glove, and ten years later improved the Bill Doak model with a two-piece leather web. At the same time, the "T" web became a rage for first basemen's mitts. The pocket underwent a pronounced change in 1941 when the Trapper Mitt, also known as the Claw, appeared. The "Deep Well" pocket was so unique that Rawlings quickly patented it. The design was improved in 1950 by adding a leather piece across the top. Another significant creation occurred in 1948 with the three-fingered Playmaker. A five-fingered fielder's model, with all fingers laced together, provided greater pocket control.

The six-fingered Trap-Eze evolved in the 1960's. In more recent years, Rawlings produced the Fastback design, which gives a glove a snugger fit, greater extension, and overall control. The Holdster is a slot through which a finger can be extended for additional protection from impacts on the pocket. Then, there is the Edge-U-Cated Heel with its extended U-shaped lacing and the Pro H Web and much-copied Basket Web.

Some of Rawlings more recent glove innovations also include the unique Spin-Stopper design which reduces ball spin when the ball hits the glove, and the Cantilever glove design feature that provides a cushioned area between the hand and the glove's palm area. In all, Rawlings has produced and patented more functionally innovative glove features and designs than that of any other glove manufacturer. The result is that the modern baseball glove is much larger, more comfortable, better padded and made to last far longer than its ancestors. It is not uncommon to see today's Major League players wearing the same Rawlings' glove they wore during their college playing days. In fact, Rawlings is the #1 glove in the major leagues. Rawlings maintains about 65 models of baseball and softball mitts and gloves in its line. The prototypes of virtually all of them have been field tested by professionals before entering a sporting goods dealer's inventory.
