Great Bat! David J parent

Pros: Great feel! We just went from a 30 20 -10. New Bat rule. We went to the 30 25 -5. I was a little worried about the extra 5 ounces and load at end, but wow! He began swinging the bat beautifully (a little slower) but ok. He just went 3/3 in Fall Ball and if you connect, that ball is gone!!!

Cons: N/A!

Not Good... Mike coach

Pros: The best of the bunch I guess

Cons: Stings the hands, no jump off the bat, inferior to USSSA. These new rules are awful. I honestly may get my son a wood bat to use instead.

King of Sting! Carlos parent

Pros: well balanced, looks good, no issues with durability so far.

Cons: Vibrates on hands and stings a lot when hit on the sweet spot. Sting wearing away as my son uses the bat. Must use batting gloves to decrease the sting on hands.

Good bat Patrick parent

Pros: Generally not an Easton fan and not a fan of multi-piece bats. But it appears they are using some of the tech they got by purchasing Combat to extend the bat length and there is minimal whipping action on this 2 piece version....which can be a problem for kids with fast swing speeds on other 2 or 3 piece bats. No, the ball not going as far as a USSSA bat, but it still goes plenty far. And that has zero to do with this bat, so not logical to rate this bat low because of it. And any parent that thinks they should just go wood bat is not being rational. The ball is still leaving the bat with a lot more velocity than it will off a wood bat. Only reason to go wood is if you play in wood leagues or want to save money. My son feels this bat feels quite balanced and not end weighted and felt zero sting. Not sure why others are getting sting. But we used it in rather cold weather (50's) and still no sting. Sweat spot is very similar to Combat, which is a compliment.

Cons: The price. Very expensive bat.

Ghost X-5 is "Da Bomb" Tony Daicar - Parent/Coach coach

Pros: Packs a huge punch. Our team is lucky enough to have 2 Ghost-Xs that the kids share. We have my son's 32" -5 and -8 and a -11. Everyone has one that fits their swing. This team is made up of '04 kids (13-14). The 32" -5 is fantastic for him and one other kid as they are the two biggest kids. Not for everyone as it is a heavy bat but if the kid can handle it 5*. The ball flies off it when you barrel it up!

Cons: It is a huge weapon in the 32" -5. Just make sure your kid can swing it easily because it is a lot of money to waste.

travesty jim a coach

Pros: doesnt break

Cons: terrible in every other respect, no pop, no balance.....your kid is better off using a wet 2x4 to hit with.....the worst i have seen out of the new reg bats. We have purchased a lot of easton gear over the years but this is highway robbery.....truly a bad bat.

Questions and Answers (13)

Have a question about the Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Is the Easton Ghost X USA constructed the same as the Easton Ghost X USSSA?
Ron
The performance of the USSSA model will be better than the USA model due to the difference in performance restrictions between the two organizations. The USA model will perform closer to a wood bat. Basic construction is very similar, but the walls of the USA model are much thicker.
Kyle J.
So this bat does not have the 1.15 BPF stamp? Is the USA stamp replacing that? Or do you know if there are still leagues requiring the 1.15 stamp also?
MJ
The Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5 will feature the USA stamp. These bats are not replacing the USSSA models featuring the 1.15 BPF unless one plays in a league governed by Little League, Dixie, Pony, Cal Ripken, Babe Ruth, Dizzy Dean or AABC. Players in travel ball leagues, which are typically governed by USSSA, will still be allowed to use bats with the USSSA and 1.15 BPF markings. As with anything, always best to check with league officials to learn more about any specific bat rules they may be implementing for your league.
Cameron
Is this bat dixie approved?
melanie j
Yes, the Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5 is approved for play in Dixie Youth Leagues.
Carter
Is this bat legal for the Pony Division (13-14years old) in Pony Baseball, or do you have to swing a BBCOR?
Rob
The Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5 is legal for the Pony Division. Your player will start swinging BBCOR baseball bats when he reaches the High School level.
Dan
My son has to use an USA bat this season. He wants a 30/25 (-5) to help him "hit as far" as his current USSSA 30/22 and 29/21 Easton bats. He is only 4'7" and 75lbs but he thinks he can handle this step up to a drop -5; will this help him make up the difference in distance that he will lose by going from the USSSA to the USA standard? Is this too big of a step for him? Any guidance will be helpful, thanks! Ed
Ed-USA bummed
Jumping from a drop 8 to a drop 5 is very natural for a player as the goal is to reach a drop 3 by high school. Moving to a drop 5 is a good plan as long as the player is ready for it. A drop 5 will allow him to get stronger and put more force behind the ball. The drop 5 will be an adjustment, his swing speed will be a little bit slower and the drive will be less as well. However, once he gets used to the weight, the ball will have more force behind it than if he stuck with a drop 8.
Mick
Is there a "USA" bat made in the USA?
bill
The Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5 is built in China. There are some DeMarini models that state "designed and built in the USA" but not sure if everything is done stateside though from start to finish.
Cameron
I'm looking at the Ghost X -5 and -8 bats for my son who will be 12 in the spring. He's 5'8" and weighs 130 lbs. His swing has good speed and power. Would you expect much difference in perceived power between the -5 and -8 bats? How would they compare in performance to the -10 bat?
Erik
A drop 8 and a drop 5 are fine for your player. Moving to a heavier bat can make it difficult for a short time until the player adjusts to the new weight. The heavier bats will be more durable and have very similar performance. The performance factor is the same between all the bats.
Mick
Is this bat considered BBCOR and accepted for middle school play?
eddie
The Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5 will not be BBCOR certified, but would be legal for Middle School Little League.
Max
What size barrel is this bat?
matt ondulich
The Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GX5) has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter.
Taylor
My son is 5"4' and 175 lbs, used a -10 31/21 last year. With the new bats I'm totally lost on what to purchase this year, any suggestions?
Double Trouble
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18GX5 in a 32 inch model. With the new USA bats there is not going to be a significance difference in terms of performance from one bat to the next. This model will be slightly end-loaded so as long as a player likes the feel of a bat with more weight towards the end of the barrel then this would be a great bat to get.
Cameron
What is the BPF on this bat?
KC
Unfortunately, the USA rated bats like this Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GX5) are not rated in regard to the BPF scale. Because of that, there is not a BPF rating for these bats.
Ben
Is this the best USA bat or just preference?
CC
The Easton Ghost X -5 USA Baseball Bat (YBB18GX5) is an excellent bat. The Ghost X series has been receiving great reviews and is absolutely one of the best, but it ultimately is a personal preference as to which USA baseball bat is the best. You can read all of the USA Bat reviews here: https://www.justbats.com/bat-reviews/approved%20for~usa%20bat/
JP
My son is 13 and weighs 146 and is 5' 6". He is moving from a wood bat league to a drop 5 or BBCOR drop 3 league. He will in this league for 1 year and then will move to BBCOR drop 3. Please let me know the best bat and size for him. Would the Omaha Ghost X -5 be a good bat?
Kane
If deciding between a -5 or a -3 bat, it really comes down to personal preference. Purchasing a -5 means it might be better now, since the lighter weight would be a bit easier to handle, but you will not be allowed to use it once he goes to BBCOR, so you would only have the bat for one year. I would probably recommend a BBCOR if you are not wanting to purchase 2 bats in 2 years. Some good options would be the Marucci Cat 7, the Easton Ghost X, or the Louisville Slugger Prime 918 for BBCOR.
