Pros:  The pros are solid construction, the -11 is very evenly balanced and easy for him to grip. It has a great sweet spot, it swings and feels a lot like his Combat Maxim. The 2 5/8 Barrel dose seem huge, but you get use to it. With batting gloves my 8 year old dose not complain of any sting when hitting off the tip. He is hitting the ball as far with the Ghost X as he did with his Combat Maxim most of the time. I think the trampoline effect is over rated in youth bats and for me this bat proves that. This bat dose have a odd sound, a different tone than the Combat composite or wood but you can hear a foul ball tick off of it pretty well. No one has had this bat long enough to rate durability but Easton is a name you can depend on so for that I'll give it 5 stars.

Cons:  My son changed the Hyper skin to Lizard Skin at purchase. It just feels better to him, he didn't like it on the Mako CXN either. I got him the 30 inch he is 4ft 4 and 65 pounds and chokes up about an inch so he can use it a couple years.

Pros:  This bat was bought for my 9 year old son who plays travel ball. We were replacing a Mako Torq (which doesnt meet the 2018 specs). At first the barrel seems a little too big, but my son is hitting great with it. It had a huge sweet spot and has more pop than expected. He has had little sting as well, even without gloves. Although I was upset that I was forced to buy a new bat, i am definitely happy with the purchase.

Cons:  The bat has good pop, but it makes a flat/dead sound.

Pros:  Nice feel. Sounds similar to wood just a little duller. Like the new standard. Should be much safer and more realistic to wood. Nice balance. Vibration not an issue.

Cons:  Changed the grip to Lizard Skin. Aprox. 10 yard shorter difference from last years Beast.

Pros:  None

Cons:  My Nine year old son said it has a lot of sting to it. nearly only took 5 swings with it and 4 out of the 5 hits the bat stung his hand. Thought if I change the grip, cause the one that come with is thin and use batting gloves would help, but no help at all. I thought he was making it up, so i tried it and first swing it stung. I hit the ball squar and it still stung.

Pros:  He say's it has a great feel to it when he swing's it. Almost no sting on good and bad hit's. It's well balanced (he has 1 new S750 it's a little bit more end weighted tho). More hit's. Bigger sweet spot. Perfect fit for my son.

Cons:  Break in, not sure what that will be at. Should have a better handle wrap and a bat cover for the price you pay. A bit expensive for a kid's bat. (Still the best bat I could get him tho) Don't forget to order the bat cover to protect your investment. Gave this bat 2 star for durability cause we just got it but Easton makes good bats so I imagine it could be a 5 star if it last 2 seasons (From what I've read composite bats don't last more than 2yrs. on avg. besides he's going to out grow it in less than that time anyway)

Pros:  Feels great in hands, off tee, soft toss, tennis balls. Looks nice. Is a true -11. No other positive feedback. Also, this is not a knock on easton. I have two boys and I coach. Purchased 4 different USA easton bats. Ghost X hyperlite for my 10 year old son who is about 70 lbs. Contact, gap, speed, type hitter who hits from the left side, but is right handed. Used Easton S500 -13 last season and loved it. But this is a 2018 USA bat comparison. There is also a chance it's a fluke defect. Also, easton has agreed to replace my Ghost Hyperlite with another Easton bat. Gonna go with the Beast X Hybrid. Tried it, good bat. Way too heavy right now- but could use mid season or next year. I compared the Ghost x hyperlite bat to the LS Solo 618 -11 over five hitting sessions. Two of the sessions had a hitter from each side of the plate. Also, the comparison took place after Easton Ghost X hyperlite was properly broken in.

Cons:  "Holy Stingers Batman"- Please, keep in mind all single piece bats will sting a bit and my son plays primarily catcher so there's toughness there. The results were same with second hitter added. The sting was so bad it would drop him to his knees every 3-4 mishits. He would have to take a break. The LS 618 would sting sometimes, but much less. He referred to those stings as "normal stings" could shake his hands out and continue. "Fools Gold"-Don't be fooled by the big barrel. I found it to have a tiny sweet spot on a huge barrel. When squared up it traveled "maybe" slightly further than LS 618, but doen't square up as often. Also, Mishits go nowhere (after the sting). They knuckle, float, and quickly die out. This means fielders are making outs on those hits. (and batter in pain). It's like the oversized barrel absorbs the energy of the ball. In comparison, the ball really spins and darts with the LS 618 solo. More hits through infield. I would not recommend this bat.

Pros:  My son hit it pretty well. He did complain about sting so, I left the factory wrap on and put a lizzard wrap over it and added a power pad...not a single sting after that, through several buckets of balls.

Cons:  If youre looking for anything like the performance from bats of years past, temper your expectations because you will be dissappointed, regardless of what bat you choose.

Pros:  lots of contact, great feel, pop will inrease, vibration diminishes after long break in period. good line drive bat. the funny sound still there. sounds like hitting baseball with a guitar. but much better results now that its breaking in. Read below how to break in.

Cons:  Price. Very long break in period. Not great in cool weather. I wrote a very critical review of this bat after after several sessions of what I thought was a good break in perod. I compared it to LS Solo 618. I was very dissapointed with the ghost x hyperlite. No pop and lots of stings. To be fair to easton and its product after several sessions with my ten year old I thought bat was broken in. I was wrong. I took it myself and hit over 100 baseballs off tee into net hard with 1/4 turn every time. it loosened bat up substantially. Son likes bat much more now. gets good contact with big barrel. Less stings but weather has been warmer. still has slightly less distance than LS Solo -11. But LS is a little heavier, and ghost x seems to be getting better. Slightly less misses and foul tips with ghost x bcz large barrel. changed my review and keeping bat in use for now.

Pros:  Good feel, big barrel, lots of contact, lite. Good line drive bat. Be patient with break in period- read below how to quicken that process.

Cons:  Very long break in period. After several sessions with my ten year old I thought bat was broken in. I was wrong. I than compared to LS Solo 618 and was very disappointed with ghost x. To be fair to Easton I wanted to make sure bat was broken in. I took it myself and hit over 100 baseballs hard off tee into net. It loosened bat substantially. He likes much more now wants to continue using it and has similar results to LS solo. Maybe slightly more distance at this time still with LS, but less misses and foul tips with larger barrel. Still a tough go in cooler weather, and $100 more than other -11 USA bats with similar results. Also, still sounds like hitting baseball with a guitar, but solid hits.

Pros:  Great Balance and feel. Have a team of 7-8 year olds most have hit with the bat and all can swing and hit the ball good if hit in the sweet spot.

Cons:  Kids who are not as far along in batting and miss more times than not will have the death vibrations in their hands. if your kid can make solid contact 80% of the time great bat for them. Expensive bat and at this price pay the extra and get the two piece.

Pros:  He likes the bat a lot, he’s getting use to the 29/18 I went a little bigger in weight so he can use it a few years(he just turned 9). We’ve had 4-5 hitting sessions with it indoors and he’s had little to no sting at all. Obviously not the same pop as his Combat but I think the difference is minimal.

Cons:  I think the true test of this bat will come much later.

Pros:  Gone are the days of buying a hot bat and making your kid look like an all-star. On par with all other USA bats in terms of distance. My son is on the smaller side so I needed a bat he is comfortable swinging and this is it. Yeah it had some stingers on mishits but so did the other USA bats I've bought. I put a knobcuff on and it seems to have fixed the vibration issue when hitting off the end or handle.

Cons:  $$$ for a made in china bat with a terrible grip, but if you need the lightest bat on the market without giving up barrel size this is your bat.

Pros:  looks nice. light weight

We've switched to lizard skin, bought better batting gloves and purchased the rubber that you put at end of bat to help absorb some of the shock. This bat was way to much money for him not to use it. I'm calling Easton to try find a resolution. He has been using his friends $89 Rawlings bat and it has great pop and there is little to no vibration. VERY disappointed in this bat. Three other kids on his team have all experienced the same thing.

We switched to a LS 618 solo and the same lazy drive that easily falls into second basemen's glove is now reaching the outfield. I have also heard from coaches of several other teams who are very dissatisfied with this bat and all the Easton Ghost bats. The hand sting is so bad my son was intentionally striking out. He was swinging and missing on purpose this bat was so bad. That should tell you something.

Pros:  My son is only 7, so we needed the lightest bat we could find. This is the lightest weight USA composite this year, believe me we tried them all. All alloy USA bats are at least 2 oz over swing weight, some 2.5. (USA 5150 27/16 weighs 18.6, DEMARINI VOODOO 28/18=20.4). Most all of the USA composite bats are 1.5-2 oz over listed weight. However this bat is only 1.2 oz over listed weight. 28/17 weighed exactly 18.2 oz) compared to pre USA composite bats which had longer breakin period, this bat is more ready to go. I do recommend changing to a lizard skin on all 1 piece bats for kids 8u. *****Heard of a guy who had this bat rolled and Shaven, after shave bat weighed exactly 17 oz, and was HOT AS FIRE. If you are looking for that sort of action, this bat is HOT!

Cons:  Balanced bat with minimal end weight results in heavier rattle when hit off end of the bat.

Cons:  - Swings slow => While lab tests may show the weight is near what is marked on the bat, something about it makes it feel heavy. - I can't prove it with science, but my eyes tell me that after 2000 hits (cage, games, practice, etc.) the composite is now absorbing energy at collision between the bat and ball further reducing the bats performance below USABat standards. Like its now actually deadening the ball. I swear rolled up cardboard would compare equally to this bat. Nearly the entire team has given up on the Ghost X and Hyperlite and switched to the Lousiville Slugger Solo 618. A bat half the price, but just flat out performs the Ghost in every way. I think to be first, Easton rushed the Ghost line to market and just beefed up the barrel to take away the trampoline effect, without fully considering the impact on "swing weight" (i.e., how it actually feels to swing) or how it will perform over time. Over hyped trash. Save your money.

Pros:  It looks nice.

Cons:  I have two boys. I have purchased at least 10 Easton bats over the past 7 years - all of them the top of the line. This bat without question has the least pop and the most vibration of any we have ever purchased. My 12 year old has the 31/21 and unless you hit it absolutely perfect the ball just dies. Other team members who have hit bombs in the past are getting the same result with this bat.

Pros:  My son likes the color

Cons:  No pop at all. My son complains of stinging every time we're in the cage. Batting gloves and putting on a lizard skin grip had little effect. The 750C is a far superior for half the cost. I put the ghost x on eBay for $100 with no takers. I hope the word is getting around. Easton please recall the 30"-19oz also!

Pros:  Well balanced and probably durable

Cons:  When compared to other USSSA baseball bats this bat under performs. During ball contact the bat sounds like you hit it against an aluminum pole. There is no bounce, again this is understanding that most of the new standard bats also the same way and comparing apples to apples. After investing in this bat, my son moved to a wood bat as it performed better.

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.

I am undecided on which size is best for my twin 8 year olds. They are both 4 feet even and 52 lbs. Should I go with the 27" or the 28"? I am concerned the 28" may be a little to big as they have been used to swinging bats with the 2 1/4 barrel. The 2 5/8 barrel would be new to them.

Based on your players' sizes, I would recommend that they each swing the 27" option of the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL.

I have twins that just turned 8. They each weigh about 52LBS. I had bought an Easton S450 27" with 2 1/4" barrel. However, there is absolutely no pop with that bat and it has a lot of vibration. I have noticed that the 2 5/8" barrel bats seem to have more pop. Would you recommend this bat in 27" length for my twins?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL is a one piece composite bat. Composite bats do require a break in process before you see its true performance. This process can take about 150-200 swings off a tee rotating the bat every 10 swings. Alloy bats on the other hand, do come out of the box game ready which helps explain the difference you are seeing. A 27" bat would be a good choice for 7-8 year old players.

What impact does the cold weather have on sting from these bats? My son is swinging a 28" version and we went out in about 50 degrees and he has refused to swing the bat since because of how much it hurt. He seems to suffer most when hitting at the end of the barrel. It seems that this bat is not designed well for the price since my son has always hit well without sting in the past. Any thoughts? Should we wait out the cool weather?

We've heard that the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL does vibrate quite a bit due to the one piece construction. The cold weather and hitting off the end are also things that would amplify those vibrations. We've actually heard that after quite a bit of use, the composite fibers loosen up and the vibrations dampens over time.

My son is 11 (league age 12) and entering his last year of Little League. I just bought the Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11, but now I'm hearing that there's quite a bit of vibration. He's had the Easton 2 piece bats in the past and liked them well enough, but I didn't find any at Dick's Sporting Goods. Should I be looking to spend more and get a two piece?

If you're concerned with vibration, the only way to alleviate that would be with a two piece bat, such as the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 or the slightly end loaded 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BXH10.

I would recommend moving up to a 28" or 29" bat. A popular and more affordable option is the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10. This is a one-piece, all alloy bat that features an X-Tended barrel design with Z-CORE technology for a massive sweet spot.

My son is about 4’ 5” and 65 pounds. He swings a Mako 30"/19 oz (-11) with a choke up grip. Would you recommend this bat in a 30" with a choke up grip as well? I don't want to buy an expensive bat for him to outgrow it. He just turned 11 if that helps.

Based on your son's height and weight, I think he would be comfortable with either a 29" or a 30" bat. I would recommend purchasing this 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GXHL) in the 30"/19 oz size so that he has room to grow. As you mentioned, if it is too long this season, your son can choke up on the bat.

Considering your player's specifications and previous bat, I would recommend a 30" 20oz. 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX10. The Beast X will still provide the same alloy barrel with a balanced swing weight. This 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL is another option for you. The Ghost X Hyperlite is a one-piece composite bat and should cut-down on some of the vibrations on contact.

What's the difference between the ghost x and the ghost x hyperlite ?

The main difference between the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL and the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 is that the Hyperlite is a one-piece composite bat while the Ghost X is a two-piece composite bat. Furthermore, The Hyperlite is only offered in -13, -12, and -11 sizes while the Ghost X is available in -10, -8, and -5 sizes.

Tyler Expert

Why do you have to warm up with the Easton Ghost X before you use it in a game?

Composite bats require a break-in period before game use in order to loosen up the carbon fiber materials that make up the bat. Taking a bat straight to the game has a very high risk of causing durability issues since the carbon fibers have not been loosened up at all, making the chance of cracking/breaking much higher.

How does this bat compare to the 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -11?

The main difference between the two is that the Easton Ghost X Hyperlite is a composite design while the Louisville Slugger Solo 618 is an aluminum design. This means the Easton model requires a break-in period before game use while the Louisville will not. Performance wise both bats should be fairly similar due to the strict nature of the USA bat regulations.

My son plays USSSA but this only has a USA stamp. He also plays Cal Ripken. Will this bat be allowed in USSSA and Cal Ripken? Also, he's 56 to 57" and weighs just over 70 pounds. Is the the 30", -11 the right size for him (also looking at the Ghost X Hyperlite -12 (30", -12)? If he went with the Ghost X Hyperlite -12, how would the two bats compare? Any advice would be appreciated.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL could be used in both USSSA and USA leagues such as Cal Ripken. USSSA will allow USA bats in their games but Cal Ripken will only allow USA stamped bats. Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend a 29 inch bat. Comparing this bat to the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 one will see a few noticeable differences. Those would be weight (one ounce difference between the two), certification (the Ghost X Hyperlite -12 features USSSA certification and thus illegal for use in Cal Ripken) and barrel diameter (USA bats are maxed out at 2 5/8"). As well, due to the thinner barrel wall design of USSSA models one will get better performance from the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12.

Some reviews are saying no sting and some are saying it has a lot of sting when hitting with this bat. Could you give some more clarification as to why this maybe an issue? Have there been any other issues with this bat?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL features new type of composite that is designed to help with vibration reduction. However, new USA certified bats have thicker barrel walls which is resulting in players needing to square up the baseball even more to reduce the sting.

Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 31" bat. However, if you feel like that is a big jump, moving to a 30" would be perfectly acceptable as well. This is a suggestion based on his height and weight but the player should swing what he is most comfortable with.

Based off the information you have provided, I would recommend swinging a 30 inch bat. The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL in a 30/19 would be a good option.

I usually use a drop 10 bat and this bat is a drop 11. Could that have any affect on my swing or how far the ball will go?

If you are using a -10 bat and performing well, then going with a lighter -11 bat like this 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GXHL) in the same length may decrease the distance in which you hit the ball. The -11 size of bat will have less mass to it and when you connect with the ball, you will be putting less force into the ball. The lower force being put into the ball will result in less distance on the ball.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL could be a good choice for an 11 year old player needing to use a USA approved bat. The correct length to weight ratio will ultimately depend on his strength and how well he is handling his current bat.

What is the real advantage in buying a $280 bat over many other cheaper options of same size and weight? It seems even the cheapest bats are described as "balanced", "good pop", "low vibration", "durable". These seem like just buzz words for sales pitches, and don't have any real meaning or scale.

A more expensive bat like the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL is due to the fact it is a composite bat. The "cheaper" options will always be the one-piece alloy bats as these are the easier bats to make that require less raw materials to construct. The advantage that the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL offers over the cheaper alloy models is the balanced feel and swing weight; this composite bat will offer a more true listed weight at roughly 0.5 ounces heavier. Two-piece bats will offer better vibration reduction from off-centered hits due to the flex they offered on impact. At this time we have not seen anything that suggests there is a higher performing USA bat on the market and we would anticipate better durability across all makes and models due to the thicker barrel wall design.

My son will be 11 in spring. He is 4’11” and 110 lbs. I saw something that said the Hyperlite was better if the player is a ‘contact hitter’ and the Beast X is better if the player is a ‘power hitter’. He usually hits a few homeruns during the season. How do I know if he is a contact or power hitter?

I would comment that if he typically hits a few homers each year, he is probably a power hitter and would be ready to use a bat with a -10 length-to-weight ratio over a bat like this 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GXHL) with a -11 length-to-weight ratio. Based on his height and weight, I think you could consider a 30" length bat. My recommendation would be to consider the 2018 Easton Beast X -10 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18BX10) in the 30"/20 oz size.

I am looking to get a new 2018 compliant bat for my 10 yo. He's 4'11 90lbs. We looked at the 31/20 ghost x -11 for him. I thought the ghost x hyperlight seemed more balanced than the -10 2 piece version. Do you think there is a huge competitive difference between those two aside from vibration?

I always recommend that if your player is able to handle the weight, that they go ahead and swing the lowest drop weight possible (a heavier bat if the length remains consistent.) So aside from that the two-piece bat will certainly limit the vibrations felt on poorly struck balls. Overall the 31"/20oz. 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL would be a quality bat for your son to use.

Last year was my son's first year playing kid pitch in Cal Ripken. He had a Rawlings Plasma 29" and struggled greatly with bat sting. The bat also felt a lot heavier than his friend's bats so he sometimes struggled getting it around. We want to invest in a bat that he can get around easily but also are concerned about bat sting. For these reasons we are torn between the Ghost X and the Hyperlite. Thoughts?

Both are good options. I would most likely recommend the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10 as it is still extremely light but the two piece design will greatly reduce vibrations.

I am looking at this bat for my 11 yr old. He is 100 lbs and I want as light a bat as possible as he is moving up to a league that the pitching is faster so I want him to have as much bat speed as possible. Is this a good bat and do I want a lighter bat as far as ounces or the -11 or -12, etc?

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL would be a good option to consider for an 11 year old who struggles with bat speed against faster pitching. The great thing about the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL is the fact it will be one of the more balanced USA bats on the market.

My son is 11, weighs 82 lbs and plays Little League. He needs a USA stamped bat. He is use to swinging a lighter bat and had a -13 DeMarini Raw (30"/17 oz). I am hesitant to go with a heavier bat. Can you a recommend a bat that he can use for the next couple of years that he won't outgrow and that won't be too heavy?

For most 11 year old players, we are recommending a 30" bat. Since we will not have any 2 5/8", USA Bats that are lighter than -11; I would suggest getting a 30"/19 oz bat for him. I think this 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GXHL) would be an excellent selection in the 30"/19 oz size. If you wanted something a little longer and heavier to help as he grows, you could look to the 31"/20 oz size.

Comparing the Louisville Solo 618 to the Easton Ghost X Hyperlite. Which bat has a longer barrel? Which bat would have a lighter swing weight?

Both of these bats are quite similar. They each have a balanced weight which will feel lighter than the other market end-loaded bats. As for barrel size, the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GXHL) implements the X-Tended barrel design to create a large sweet spot on the barrel.

Other than the extra drop oz, how does this bat really compare to the regular Ghost version? Is there any disadvantage to the one piece rather than the two piece Ghost? Does one provide more power over the other?

The main difference between the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL and the 2018 Easton Ghost X -10 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX10, besides the 1 ounce difference, is the one-piece versus two-piece design. The inherent advantage of the two-piece bat is the vibration reduction from an off-centered hit. Assuming a player can swing both bats at the same bat speed then the -10 Ghost X would offer more power as there is more weight a player can throw into the ball.

Someone of his height and weight typically use a 30" bat. The added weight may cause him to have a slower swing in the beginning. But a 10 year old usually swings a drop 10. Its natural to have a slower swing when adjusting to a new weight. Your player should be fine after a couple visits to the cage as he will get more comfortable with the weight.

Isn't one of the benefits of a composite bat to generate more pop and cause a "trampoline effect" once broken in? With the new USA Baseball specifications, has this effect been engineered out of composite bats making them more like alloy and/or wood bats?

Yes, composite bats once broken in will create some what of a trampoline effect. The USA Baseball stamp will make it perform closer to how a BBCOR bat would perform. Typically this is compared to the performance of wood bats.

(1) What is the difference between this bat and the -11 Velo? (2) Which bat has the most balance swing weight?

(1) This 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GXHL) will differ from the 2018 Rawlings VELO -11 USA Baseball Bat (US8V11) as the HYperlite is made of composite material and the VELO is made mostly of alloy material [with the exception of a composite end-cap]. (2) The VELO (US8V1) will probably be the more balanced feeling bat. Typically, when you top off an alloy bat with a composite end-cap, it makes the bat feel very light and balanced.

This 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GXHL) will come with a balanced feel and can be swung very quickly by a player. Overall, if your player is playing coach or kid pitch, I would recommend this Ghost X Hyperlite (-11) over the 2018 Rawlings Quatro -11 USA Tee Ball Bat (TB8Q11) as the Ghost X Hyperlite is meant to hit thrown balls.

To get a USA Baseball bat that is not a teeball model, you will have to go with the 27" length (everything that has a 26" length and USA Baseball stamp will be a teeball bat). Because of that, I would recommend looking for a bat in the 27"/16 oz size for a smaller 6 year old that is playing coach pitch.

What's the benefit of two-piece verses one-piece bats?

One-piece bats, such as the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL, are stiffer in comparison to a two-piece bat and will offer less flex during a player’s swing which allows for more power transferred from the player. Two-piece bats will offer more flex during a player’s swing. This causes a whip-like action through the swing zone and results in more inertia and power. These bats tend to be geared more towards a contact hitter or a hitter that could use assistance in improving bat speed. Because the handle is separate from the barrel, two-piece bats tend to help mitigate felt vibration on mishit balls.
