As the #1 Bat in Youth Baseball, you can trust and expect that Easton will deliver the best performing bats in the game, and the 2017/18 Beast X is no exception. The 2017/18 Beast X -5 2-5/8”, approved for play in USSSA and associations that follow the 1.15BPF standard, features Easton’s ATAC alloy, an all-new advanced thermal alloy construction that creates the most powerful barrel in the game. The Beast X -5 is a one-piece end-loaded design that offers a fast swing weight for more power behind the ball at contact, and the X-tended barrel design, combined with the new ATAC alloy, delivers the longest aluminum barrel, with the biggest sweet spot in the game. Loud. Powerful. Brute Strength. Are you ready to experience the Power of X? Effective January 1, 2018, this bat will not be legal for play in associations governed by USA Baseball.
