My son LOVES IT! Christy Parent

Pros: I was a little worried going with this drop 5 because it seemed to be a big jump in oz. from his previous bat, but he loves it! He is 12 1/2 but he is a strong kid with a quick bat speed. After his 1st couple of try’s with hitting he said “this bat and I will be crushing it this year”! He loves the black and white as well.

Cons: We haven’t used the bar long enough to see the cons yet, but can send a review if we find some

Maxum POP Omar Coach

Pros: 1st pitch out of the wrapper flew past me just giving me enough time to duck behind the L Screen. We had to stop for a quick second and rethink how far we are putting the screen back. Lol ball jumped off the bat and you actually heard the wind cut through the laces on the ball.

Cons: Yes you miss a pitch towards the end of the barrel you will be reminded of the good old days growing up when bats stung

Actually a Vigor Jason Hutchinson Coach

Pros: Like the -10 "Maxum", this is actually a Combat Vigor with Maxum pained on it. This means you lose 1" of barrel off the 32" bat, 1.5" off the 31" bat, and 2" off the 30" bat vs. a true (2016) Maxum. Extremely light swing weight though, it literally swings lighter than some of our -8 bats. Durability is still to be determined for us, but like any high performance bat, using in warm temps only will extend life.

Cons: Fair amount of vibration for such a heavy bat away from the sweet spot compared to 2 piece bats, but entirely tolerable and gives good feedback to the batter. It's not "hot" out of the wrapper, but I've never seen a composite bat that is. It takes a while to break in the whole barrel simply because there is a lot of it, but that's as much a pro as a con.

Pros: Great pop, feel and balance.

Cons: Playing a tournament this weekend and the end cap exploded again on our second warranty bat. This is a great bat and there is a simple fix by going back to the old end cap. For what ever reason they changed to a brittle plastic end cap is beyond me. What a shame!!!

Good So Far for a 13U Bat Aaron Parent

Pros: Large sweet spot and good pop once broken in. 13U player preferred a Ghost X Evolution over this until the Easton broke. He likes this bat alot now that he's actually using it and several teammates have started using it too. Nice balanced swing weight, it's right at -5 on a kitchen scale but kids say the 32" bat swings like a shorter bat.

Cons: Barrel is really long, looks like a softball bat next to other bats. Can't comment on durability yet because it sat in the bag until 2 weeks ago.

The ball comes off this bat in a HURRY! Larry McDaniel Coach

Pros: The bat has a lot of pop straight out of the wrapper. My son loves this bat and several of his teammates use it as well. He has always preferred Easton bats and the Combat Maxum us very similar to the Easton. The bat is well balanced so if you are looking for end load I would look at other bats but if you prefer balance this is the bat for you. I've read reviews about vibration but if you square up to the ball as you should there is no vibration. My son has mishit some balls and had little vibration but I believe if you feel some vibration with a mishit ball you will learn to prevent it and square up to the ball more. I am not a believer in looking at home runs when hitting, I always look for hard line drives and this bat works well for that. The ball comes off this bat very fast.

Cons: Haven't found any!

Great balance and pop Ben Bartels Coach

Pros: Balanced feel. Huge sweet spot. Pop out of the wrapper. One piece composite. Very low sting and vibration.

Cons: None yet. My experience with Combat has been that they are at the top of the pop spectrum but aren’t going to last more than a couple seasons under heavy use. They have been bought out by Easton so I’m not sure how that might affect the warranty or the future of the combat bat availability on the market. But the fact that Easton wanted them out of the market should speak to their quality as Easton clearly saw them as a threat.

A huge combat fan has been... Steve Parent

Pros: Seems like an average bat. With a barrel this large you would think the sweet spot would be larger. Maybe it’s just this single bat but there are dead areas on the bat. The drop 11 was awesome. This-5 is average.

Cons: Our experience with Combat in the past has been exceptional. But this -5 sent to me is average. Thank you.

Pros: We bought this bat to transition from a -10 to a -5 and had no issues. My son was swinging this with no issues almost immediately. We've really liked the bat, it looks good and has good pop.

Cons: People sometimes say it's a softball bat due to the larger than normal barrel.

It this bat made in Canada or China?
Greg
The 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105 is made in China.
Cameron
How come there are no reviews on the 2019 drop 5 composite COMBAT bat? Some kids on the team have the 2018 and they really liked it. Is the 2019 different based on the fact the company sold last year?
Jamie Deason
Unfortunately all reviews on bats, like the 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105, are consumer generated so if there are no reviews for a bat then that just means nobody has taken the time to submit a review. At this point that would not be uncommon on a newer release bat like the 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105. As for how this bat compares to the 2018 version, these two bats are almost identical in all respects minus the colorway change.
Cameron
Does this bat have an inner ring(s) in the barrel?
Ted
The COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105 will not feature inner barrel rings. The carbon fibers that construct this barrel will be filled with a resin.
Daveron
If this bat is composite one piece how can it be hot out of the wrapper. Doesn't need a break-in period?
Larry
We at JustBats encourage a break in period for all composite barrel bats. As a composite bat the 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105 will perform better after a break in period.
Daveron
My son will turn 13 in December, he is playing on a 13u team. What drop is required at his age?
Ignacio
At the 13U level, a player must use either a -8, -5 or BBCOR bat. The COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105 could be used at both the 13U and 14U levels.
Cameron
Can you please compare this bat with Ghost X?
KwangYong Choi
The COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105 is a one-piece all composite with a balanced swing weight while the Ghost X is a two-piece all composite bat with an end-loaded swing weight. The Ghost X will offer better vibration control as the result of the two-piece design as a two-piece bat will flex on contact. This flex may slightly reduce the exit velocity of the ball off the bat though.
Cameron
I heard the Ghost X is for both contact and power hitters. How about COMBAT MAXUM -5?
KwangYong Choi
The Ghost X -5 bats from Easton usually feel a little heavier toward the barrel. I would usually recommend that bat for a power hitter due to that feature. I have found that this 2019 COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat (SL9MX105) and past models of the -5 MAXUMs have felt a little more balanced. This MAXUM could definitely be used by both contact and power hitters since it has a pretty balanced feel to it.
Ben
Is this bat as good as the new Combat B2?
John
Since the COMBAT B2 has yet to be released, we would not be able to offer a comparison between it and the COMBAT MAXUM -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: SL9MX105 as this time. Most likely early next spring we would have a better indication on the soon-to-be-released COMBAT B2.

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

end loaded Chris Parent

Pros: None

Cons: My son doesn’t like the endloaded feel. I thought it was because I moved him down to drop 8. I got him a different bat in drop 5 and he went back to crushing the ball.

Great bat! Kris Bowers Coach

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.

Cons: None at all

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.
