2018 Easton Ghost X USA 2 5/8 -8 YBB18GX8 Bat Review

Yes, these bats will not be as hot as their 1.15 bpf counterpart (20ft less out of the wrapper) but they surprisingly do have some pop. The bat is pretty stiff out of the wrapper also and some stingers were present but after some solid BP or bat rolling the bat seemed to soften up. It flexed a little more and the stings slowly went away. The sweet spot seems small at first too but it does open up also. The Easton Ghost is not a bad bat considering the USA restrictions put in place. Most will be disappointed with the Ghost's distance and pop unless bat rolling or bat shaving is preformed.
