Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible bat This bat hurts my son’s hands every time he hits the ball. Never buying an Easton product ever again. Waste of money

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great USA Bat My son is 10 and a consistent hard line drive / ground ball hitter with a 650 average. He is about 15 games in with this new bat, and is loving it. No sting if the ball is hit properly off the sweet spot. Glad I took a chance on this one. Great product Easton.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Painful Bat to swing This bat stings and is dead. Kept wondering about the sound. I forced him to keep using it for months and feel bad. Several players tried it because it was a Ghost. After they tried it and it would constantly sting anyone who dared swing it, they never picked it up again. Since it was a higher end bat, I thought he should keep using it and maybe it needed breaking in. Wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Info Most reviewers apparently not realize USA bats are not even close to as hot as the ussa bats. Bat does it’s job and performs to the standard it’s made for

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Easton Ever- dead bat! Dead bat, two different kids on our team have this bat and both are junk! We both just bought it brand new and neither of our kids use it. So sad, a complete waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Terrible Performance. My son got the Ghost X Hyperlite 27/16 for Christmas. He’s a very, very small 9 almost 10 year old (4’1 55 pounds) with a great eye, who in the past would fly ball after ball into the short outfield collecting single after single. I ordered the Hyperlite because it was pretty much the only USABat with drop 11 at the time. I have fully researched and understand the impact of the new standard, but by any measure the Hyperlite is under performing as all it produces are soft floaters that go ~60 feet and ground balls with no spin that die and are easily fielded. After 1500 to 2000 hits (~25 games, cages, practice, side toss, tee, etc.) with the Hyperlite, I swear at this point it is taking energy out of the collision between the bat and ball. I think a roll of cardboard would be as effective as the Hyperlite. I think it has gotten less hot the more he’s swung with it. For a Memorial Day tournament this past weekend one of the kids on his travel team who grew tired of his Ghost X doing nothing, showed up with an Easton competitors USABat that cost half the price of the Ghost line. By the end of the weekend nearly the entire team had abandoned their Ghosts and were using it. My son used it for the last game, and choking up a bit due to his teammates bat being a larger size and therefore 2 ounces heavier than his Hyperlite, he went 3 for 3 with his singles being lined into the short outfield like his old bat. This makes sense, yes USABat performs less, but he is a year older and stronger so those two should counter each other and performance should be about where he was with an aluminum bat last year. It seems to me that Easton may have rushed the Ghost line to market in order to be first, and in doing so only beefed up the barrel to decrease the trampoline effect to USABat standards, but didn't fully consider how this would impact swing weight (i.e., how a bat actually feels when you swing) or how the thicker composite would perform over time. After 5 months of use the Hyperlite fails in every category and wish I could get my money back. PS. I rarely review items online. But my disappointment is such that I think people should know how the Ghost line, not just the Hyperlite, actually perform.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bat is dead! Bought this model in December of 2017 as a Christmas gift for my 11 year old son. There wasn't much data or reviews as it was recently released for the upcoming season and new regulations. I opted for Easton because the Mako's were so succussful I figured it was a good choice. We practiced indoors all winter with it and it seemed ok, despite some stingers. Once the season started you could clearly see that this bat had no pop, he was shaking his hands from stingers and unless you hit it on the screws it just was completely dead. After a month I purchased another Easton, this time an aluminum S750C and was night and day! This bat has pop, no stinging and seems to be more forgiving! Stinks that I'm out of $279 for a bat that was basically used for a month!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cracked! Out of all the bats we tried this one had the most POP and performed well... for a few games that is. Unfortunately this VERY pricey bat didn't last. It cracked on the lower part of the barrel halfway through the season. We've reached out several times and haven't had any response from Easton. On a good note, my son is Crushing it with his teammates $75 Rawlings Prodigy bat!
