GHOST BAT PERFORMANCE
Why should I use the Ghost bat in ASA play?
If you play under ASA rules, you will want to have the Ghost because it was built specifically for the ASA certification (98MPH)- there is no better ASA bat for feel, sound and performance (aka, pop)!
Why should I use the Ghost bat in USSSA play?
If you play under USSSA rules, you will want to have the Ghost because it was built specifically for the USSSA certification (1.20BPF)- there is no better USSSA bat for feel, sound and performance (aka, pop)!
What type of player should swing the Ghost bat?
Every level of hitter will experience success with the Ghost due to its unique double barrel construction, and specifically due to the industry's lowest compression of the outer barrel.
• Older/stronger players can compress the outer barrel to the point where it collides with the inner barrel, achieving max performance right up to the point of the 98MPH certification limit.
• Younger players will also benefit from the double barrel construction. The Ghost's super low compression will allow the younger player to generate trampoline off the barrel just like the older/stronger player, maximizing her power potential on every swing.
Always be sure to check your tournament rules first.
