What people are saying (edited for clarity and brevity)

PROS

  • My 8-year-old son finds the bat comfortable, well-balanced, and lightweight, with a great grip and pop.
  • My child enjoys using it. It has a satisfying sound when hit solidly, but it lacks pop due to being a USA bat.
  • A little heavy for a six-year-old, but it's a good bat for raking when choking up. Great value for closeouts!

CONS

  • After using this bat in two games, my son found it disappointing as the ball didn't travel far, likely due to its weight.
  • If you're looking for extreme pop and exit speed, this may not be the best option for you.
  • I didn't notice much of a difference in how the ball came off this bat compared to my son's $75 bat.

USSSA, USA

Expert Notes (Tony)

This USA bat is designed for little league or a pony leagues. It won't be a very high-performance bat and, in general, is designed for safety. Typically, your little leaguer, who uses the USA stamp, is a player at an entry-level ability. With that said, the Ghost X Hyperlite was one of the best available USA bats. But any USA bat is going to be a mediocre performer overall. The Ghost X Hyperlite is very lightweight and very easy to swing. Smaller players do well with it.
