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

Pros: Alot of bats are really expensive and I am too practical so went with this bat for my 11u son. He ended the season with 9 home runs off this bat. If you can't afford or just can't spend $350 on a bat, this is a perfect bat.

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 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.

Cons: None so far

The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V5 does not feature USABat or BBCOR certification, so it is not legal for play in Babe Ruth.
Logan
Is this bat certified for little league 60/90?
David
The 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 Senior League Baseball Bat (UT8V5) is legal for junior league, but not senior league. Senior league has to use BBCOR
Mick
What is the difference between the USA -5 VELO, and this one?
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.

No, the performance of the 2018 Rawlings VELO -5 Senior League Baseball Bat: UT8V5 will not change if you re-grip it.
Tori
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.
