What happened to the pop Chad Hayes Parent

Pros: Well balanced bat but the pop from this bat is not as good as the CAT 8 for my son. It may be his ons swing who knows but hoping that after 300 or so hits the bat will have more pop? Had to try this bat at $149.00 price.

Cons: Not as much pop as expected. Older Canadian Combats are better then the Easton models.

2019 combat Maxum -11 Anthony L Coach

Pros: Very good feeling bat! Weight is dead on and the bat is well balanced. The barrel is designed to give a larger hitting surface which seems to work well. Customer service was excellent!

Cons: Bat doesn’t seem to have as much Pop as I was hoping for. I do feel it was worth the price of $149 ( I caught it on sale) But, as of now I don’t think I’d want to pay much more considering the lack of Pop. I’m hoping that the bat gets better as we use it.

Hit dingers Rob Coach

Pros: Good price, great pop, great feel.

Cons: If you hit this bat a lot, expect a season in a 1/2. But, for the money, can’t beat it. Our first bat started coming apart at beginning of 2nd season. However, we hit a ton of balls with it. Stay away from sand balls and batting cage hard balls. I think that contributed to it. First at bat, first pitch this year with the new bat went yard.

1st Homer Zeta Parent

Pros: Good pop with perfect sweet spot hit. Very light swinging. Price. My 11U son his his first homer with this bat. He was hitting for high average all season, and he was seriously thinking about moving to a heavier -10 Mako to get more pop. Sure enough he hit his first homer with this bat so he is sticking with it.

Cons: Grip isn't great.

Just ordered the bat! Chris H. Coach

Pros: Price. For how it’s made and it’s look, it seems to be doing good so far. My son has used it only a few times and he likes how it feels and it appears the ball has some extra distance on it when contact is made. So far so good!

Cons: None as of now.

Are there any differences from the 2018 drop 11 Maxum bat and this 2019 drop 11 Maxum bat?
Chad H
The 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -11 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX211 has a new end cap to improve balance. Other than that, the bats are very similar.
Logan
What is the actual weight of this bat? Stated weight is 19oz but I saw a review the bat actually weighs closer to 20.5 Oz. Is that right? Thanks
Mike powers
Generally speaking, every bat on the market will weigh slightly over the listed amount. Manufacturers weigh the bat before final construction, so things like the paint, adhesive glue for the end cap, and adhesive for the grip tape are not taken into account. Most bats weight about 1 oz over the listed amount.
Kyle J.
What’s the major difference in this bat and the Cat 8? I know this is composite, but which bat will be more durable and which bat will be more balanced?
Dadwithbatissues
The 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -11 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX211 is a one piece, fully composite, -11 bat, while the 2019 Marucci CAT 8 -10 USSSA Baseball Bat: MSBC810 is a one piece, alloy, -10 bat. The 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -11 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX211 will feature a slightly more balanced swing weight since it is an ounce lighter, and will also have a larger hitting surface due to the composite design. Durability doesn't seem to be an issue with either one to this point.
Logan
Is this bat end loaded or balanced!
aaron harbin
This is considered a balanced bat.
Kyle J.
I don't get the drop difference?
Eloy santos
The drop references the difference between the length and weight of a bat. The COMBAT MAXUM -11 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX211 is a drop 11 bat which means a 30 inch model will weigh 19 ounces (difference of 11).
Cameron
I know it says hot out of the box, so I assume the bat does not need to be broken in like other composites?
Todd Murphy
The COMBAT MAXUM -11 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX211 is considered to be hot out of the wrapper. However, since it is composite we still recommend taking about 100 swings at 50% power rotating the barrel 1/4'' to ensure the composite fibers are fully broken in.

Great bat to increase bat speed. Ethan99 parent

Pros: Light. Balanced. Awesome pop. Good sound. Big sweet spot. My 9 year old hit the 200' fence with this bat during BP. Much easier for him to get it around and pull the ball on an inside pitch. He struggled with starting too late so the light feel is helping him.

Cons: As expected, some vibration when mishit, but a lot less than other one-piece bats. We installed a choke up ring on his bat and that helped a lot with minimizing the vibration.

Major Sting Coach Wolf Coach

Pros: This bat is a well balanced bat that provides a nice smooth and powerful swing, the break in process for us is not an issue, less than a week and we were seeing the results. We stepped up from an Easton Speed to this bat and the pop coming off this bat gives an easy 25% increase on distance from the Speed.

Cons: Initially, my son loved this bat. I'm not sure if it was because it was a new bat and he fought through the vibration, but the more and more we hit with the Ghost, the worse the sting seems to get. Every 4-5 hits, he has to take a break so he can properly grip the bat. We have put the ghost up and are back to the Easton Speed until we find another bat.

Warranty problems Steve Zahourek Parent

Pros: Has a 1 year warranty

Cons: Just bats got the bat to me for my son in 2 days. Great!! The end cap cracked on the 3rd game he had it. Have to return it to Easton company. Takes 1 to 3 days to get a return Auth. # Then you have to pay to have it shipped back. Cost $21.00 to have it shipped in 6 days. Then once Easton gets the bat and determines if it will be covered. They will ship out a new bat in 10 - 14 days. We will miss a 1/3 of the season. Not good!!!!!

Not from everybody Matt M Coach

Pros: looks cool. weight to size ratio.

Cons: need to have a super fast and hard swing to generate any sort of distance. not a good bat imo. my son hits fine with DeMarini's and Marucci's and some Rawlings. maybe 1/5 of the hits are solid with this bat. maybe the sweet spot is small; or maybe it has to be really broken in - no idea. it seemed to perform the best out all the bats we tried in Dick's Sporting Goods batting cage with computer results. however, I would say too much money for bang for the buck for sure.

Would this be a good bat for a kid who is 5 feet tall and 105 pounds? Does it conform to the new 2018 little league rules?
Karl
The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) is a great bat. However, it will not be certified for little league. The SL16GXHL12 is USSSA certified, but not USA certified. Little league requires a USA certified bat.
Mick
Is this bat approved for Little League play in 2018?
Drew Down
The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is not approved for play in Little League in 2018. All Little League approved bats for the 2018 season will feature a USABats stamp and these bats, from most manufacturers, will be released in early September.

Why is this bat not a 2-5/8? It's the exact same as the JBB! Will they even make a 2-5/8?
Tyler ZCORE
The new USSSA bats that are being made, like the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12, will feature a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. Now that travel ball leagues, USSSA, and Little League, Dixie, Pony, etc. have gone to two different certifications with regards to big barrel bats the trend with USSSA is 2 3/4" barrel diameter.
Cameron
I just ordered a Ghost X 30/20 and then I saw this. I don't know what bat to use. I know that bat speed is what you want. I used the chart to decide the length of bat but how should I decide the weight? He swings a 29/19 now. Is there a such thing as too light of a bat?
Dave
The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is best suited for players 10 and younger. One that is 11 years of age could benefit from this bat if they are on the smaller side. As for as how to decide on the weight, this is going to come down to age and what bat they are currently using and how well they are handling the weight of this bat. Typically, for players 11-12 years of age a -10 bat is best, -8 for a 7th grader and -5 for an 8th grader. One always should swing the heaviest bat possible that will not negatively impact bat speed or swing plane. Going lighter can help improve bat speed but can have a negative effect in terms of durability and distance in stronger players; too light and there is no weight to throw into the baseball.
Cameron
Is this bat balanced or end-loaded?
cory

Ben
What are the differences between the 2018 and the 2017 version?
RMG
This 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) will be the same as the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST HYPERLITE -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17MK12B) in regard to general design. Both bats have a -12 length-to-weight ratio; 2 3/4" barrel diameter; and one-piece, all-composite design. However, this Ghost X Hyperlite will differ as it features new EXACT Carbon Composite Material that should optimize barrel performance, enlarge the sweet spot and reduce vibration on the 2018 Ghost X.
Ben
Can you use this bat in travel ball?
Mike
Yes, the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 has the USSSA baseball certification which typically means it is cleared for travel ball. I recommend confirming with a coach prior to purchase.
Dan
Does the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) have the USA approval/meet the new 2018 bat standards so that my son can use it for select?
mike
The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12) meets the USSSA certification and does not meet the USA standard. In order to meet the USA standard, your bat will need a diameter of 2 1/4" or 2 5/8" and have the USA stamp. I would suggest taking a look at the 2018 Easton Beast X Hyperlite -12 USA Youth Baseball Bat (YSB18BXHL). This bat meets the USA standard and has a 2 1/4" barrel.
Taylor
My son is 9 and weighs 60 pounds. His USA bat is longer but he chokes up between 2-3 inches. This is his first year of travel and looking to get a fast bat to build on confidence, so I got a 27-15oz. His other bat that he chokes up on is 29-18oz. Small guy, so will this bat work for this year?
Michigan28
I would consider the 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 in a 28/16 or 29/17. I think going from a 29/18 to a 27/15 is too big of a jump. I would recommend only going down an inch and an ounce and that will be of enough benefit to increase his bat speed.
Dan
Not many reviews on this bat. How would you compare the performance if this model to the Easton Beast model, CF Zen or even a LS Solo 618?
donnie batman
The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is going to be very similar in performance to the three bats that you have listed. It will be a pretty different feel in comparison to the Easton Beast and the CF Zen due to it being a one piece design and those bats featuring a two piece design. The one piece design on the Louisville Slugger Solo and the Easton Ghost X Hyperlight will be a stiffer feel. All of the bats mentioned will be similar in performance.
Carter
I'm looking for a new bat. My son plays in a travel league that does not need the BBCOR or USA stamp. He can use a 2 3/4 USSSA bat. I'm trying to decide between this and the 2017 Easton Mako Beast Senior League bat. Is there much difference in the bats? I want a 29 inch bat.

The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 would be a one piece composite bat with a -12 length to weight ratio, so it will be a lighter bat overall than the 2017 Easton Mako Beast Senior League bat. The Mako Beast will also be a two piece composite bat, so less vibration will be felt on that bat than on the Ghost X Hyperlite.

Will this bat need to be broken in?

With composite bats, like this 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL18GXHL12), we always recommend a break-in period. On the first day of use, I would suggest taking roughly 100-150 swings off a tee, rotating the barrel a 1/4" every 15-20 swings. On the second day of use, I would recommend hitting soft tosses again, rotating the barrel every few swings. After doing this, the composite bat should be broken in!

How does the used bat 14 day guarantee work? Can a player demo during this time and return if they don"t like the bat?
sean
Yes, if you purchase the used 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 you can use the bat during the 14 day guarantee and if you decide you don't like it for any reason, you can return it for a full refund or exchange.

My son just made the transition from little league to travel ball. He was swinging 28"/18 oz bat for coach pitch. I see him struggling at the plate catching up to the balls at times and was wondering if I should get this bat in a 28"/16 oz or 27"/15 oz? Would an inch and two ounces be too much of a difference or should I keep the same bat length? My son is 6 1/2 and weighs about 50 pounds.

I would probably stay with a 28"/18 oz model. The 2 oz difference should help a fair bit, however only you would have the best guess since we have never seen him actually swing. A 27"/15 oz seems rather small for a player his age however, and would not be recommended unless he was about 4'2" or shorter.

What is the barrel size?
Chad
The 2018 Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 has a 2 3/4'' barrel diameter.
Tori
Is this bat good to use in travel ball?
Vanessa Haydt
Yes, the Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is USSSA approved and would make for a great option for any player ages 6-10 years old.
Tyler
Can this be used in minor league 11 year old?
Franklin
The Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 is certified for USSSA play. If you are needing a bat for Little League play then this bat would not be legal as one would need a USA certified bat. That model of bat would be the Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -11 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GXHL.

My son is 8 1/2 years, 100lbs and 4'7 ft. tall. Is this bat is good for his travel team 8u?
miguel
Yes, the Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 will make for a great option given the balanced swing weight and new carbon technology to reduce vibrations.
Tyler
Is this a USSSA 1.15 certified bat?
Shannon
Yes, this has the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp.

I am looking for a bat to use in travel ball. I am deciding between this bat and the 2018 Demarini CF Zen Senior -10 bat. Which bat would you recommend? I am 5’3 and 110 pounds.
Will Stidsen
Per your height and weight, the Easton Ghost X Hyperlite -12 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GXHL12 would not be a good option to consider. A better option from Easton would be the Easton Ghost X -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL18GX10 in a 31 inch model.
