Father Adrian Moralez parent

Pros: Awesome bat straight out of the wrapper, my son is 12u major playing up to 13u and had a great tournament with this bat he is a contact hitter and with this bat I feel the ball traveled further and came off bat way faster, he loves it.

Cons: A little top heavy for lighter players.

Worst Bat - 3 Replacements less than 2 Games Each Jeff parent

Pros: My son hasn't been able to use one long enough without cracking to determine any possible Pros.

Cons: Have had 3 replacements from Easton for my 15 year old son. Each has cracked in less than 2 games. First replacement took 6 weeks to get. Used to be a good company with a good product. I'm not sure what happened but they are now a terrible company to deal with and I will never purchase another Easton product. Extremely disappointed.

Very good bat Anthony Herrera Parent

Pros: My son has only used it in practice so far, but it's been pretty good. Has good pop when hit right. I'm a little concerned about the notch between the handle and thick part of the bat. I know it's close enough to the handle that it shouldn't be a factor but there are those inside pitches that might be a problem and it kind of scares me with the durability of it. I haven't tried tossing the sand balls because of my concern of durability.

Cons: See overall review above

Questions and Answers (11)

Have a question about the Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

(1) Why are Easton and others making the -8 in 2 3/4" barrel size for 2018? (2) Is the new Ghost line suppose to be more balanced and the Beast line more end-weighted?
Big Daddy
(1) Although, I have not heard an exact answer, I would imagine that Easton is now making -8 bats with a 2 3/4" barrel diameter because they feel that there is strong marketability for bats made in that style. (2) The Ghost X line and Beast X line will be made in a balanced-style and end-loaded style depending upon the size of bat you are buying. This specific 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX8) will have an end-loaded feel.
Ben
Will this bat be legal for travel ball in California? DC Tournaments, USSSA...
JJ
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8 is USSSA approved, so it will be legal for travel ball under USSSA rules.
Logan
Can this bat be used at the 14u level?
JAKE
Many 14U travel tournaments and organizations require the use of a -5 bat, so you would want to reach out to a local coach to see if a 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8 could be used.
Logan
I was wondering, is the drop 8 Easton Ghost end loaded and the drop 10 balanced swing weight? My son is 12 and 105 lbs and was swinging the old Easton MAKO 30/21. Curious on a recommendation and if there was a drop 8 balanced swing weight.
Mike
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8 will feature an end-loaded swing weight design. The 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10, meanwhile, will feature a balanced swing weight. Most likely he would prefer a balanced swing weight but it is tough for us to say for sure. Unfortunately you cannot find a -8 balanced option.
Cameron
Is this bat legal in USSSA games?
Ben
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8 is USSSA approved and will be allowed for all USSSA games.
Tyler
It says this bat features an end loaded swing weight but I was under the impression that the Ghost X was a balanced bat. Is the Ghost X end loaded?
Coach Dan
The 2018 Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8, as well as their -5 model, will feature an end-loaded design. Anything that is lighter (-10, -11, -12) would have the balanced swing weight design.
Cameron
My son just turned 15. He is 5'8" and 125lbs. He will be playing bantam AA which is a step down from the top level. Should he swing -8 or -5?
Dave Wood
With his age, most leagues require BBCOR (-3) bats. However, if it is still legal, we would suggest using the heaviest of options in a 31 inch. A suggestion would be the Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX5.
Daveron
What is the recommended temperature range for this bat?
Justin
There isn't really a set in stone temperature range that is recommended by the manufacturer's, but we here at JustBats generally suggest to try and not use your game bat once temperatures start to get around the 45-50 degree mark. The ball gets more dense in colder weather, and this is what can cause the higher risk of durability concerns. For colder temperatures, a backup bat is usually the best option if possible.
Kyle J.
Which would have more pop, the Ghost X or the Beast X?
M
With the USSSA 1.15 BPF Certification Stamp it will be difficult for one bat to out perform another, because of that the Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8 and the Beast X will have similar off of the bat performance.
Max
My son uses a balanced 30/20 DeMarini for Little League. I think he is plenty strong enough to swing the 30/22 Easton for travel. Would switching between balanced and end loaded be detrimental to his swing and development?
Jon
It would be tough to say that switching to a -8 bat would negatively impact his swing based on the player previously using a -10 model. Although the Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX8 will feature more of an end-loaded swing weight design, the player should be fine assuming he handled his -10 bat with relative ease.
Cameron
I’m 5'10" and 180 Ibs. Would you recommend a -5 or -8? Is this bat end-loaded at all?
Matt Lepel
Based on your height and weight, I would recommend a 32" length of this Ghost X. I would suggest the -5 size of bat if you can handle a 32"/27 oz size of bat. This Easton Ghost X -8 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX8) and the Easton Ghost X -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GX5) will be end-loaded in their feels.

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.

The Real Deal Jose Benitez Coach

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?

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.

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.

(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.
