The Easton Ghost Fastpitch Bat is my personal recommendation as I have the most knowledge about it. This bat is very good for slapping, but it is incredible with everything else too!
When it comes to slapping, this bat has drop weight options ranging from -8 to -11, and if you are looking for a bat for slapping, the higher the drop weight (lower weight), the better. Also, the bat length range is longer than usual, which further helps your slapping.
This is a composite bat, meaning it needs to be broken in. Anyways, once it has properly broken in, you won’t find many bats that come close to this bat’s pop, power, and speed. It’s quite frankly just incredible.
Other features include double-barrel construction, which is a great combination of feel and sound in addition to the pop. A large sweet spot, a two-piece connection between the handle and barrel, and a Hyperskin grip will be the cherry on top of the cake.
However, this bat isn’t the most durable on the market, so if you are looking for a bat for many years to come, I suggest looking at other bats on this list. If you are more concerned about performance, the Easton Ghost is what you need.
