2020 Ghost Advanced

they want it as soon as possible to use during winter and to be ready to use the start of ball next February.

The differences in the two bats should be the following and I like the way it was explained to me by an easton rep. Does your daughter like the xeno (overweight) feel with the ghost pop or would she prefer the balanced (more demarini) feel with the ghost pop?

If she prefers a heavier feel then the current ghost is the bat for her. If she prefers a balanced (lighter) feel similar to demarini then the advance will be more suited for her.
Now we are getting somewhere! Those are some great clues to what is going on.

Some LXT business is going to be stolen if that is correct.

Sometimes reps don't know anymore than anybody else and just say what they read on their papers.

Personally, I have a ton of doubt that the Adv will be close to the feel (weight) of a Demarini. The current Ghosts were
to be balanced and we have what we have. Im not saying it cant happen and I hope it does, just saying to not jump the gun on an
Easton weight claim of being super balanced and on sticker without being a little skeptical until you see it :). That's all I am saying.

Just an FYI, going back and forth between the Miken Freak Primo and her Ghost, she says she can't tell a weight difference. So, I certainly wouldn't call it end loaded at all. I know that may mean nothing when we're talking something like brand to brand, but the Ghost certainly isn't end loaded.

I agree with you, I don't think its an endloaded bat, just overweight

Just because a bat is overweight...doesn't necessarily make it an sledgehammer or
endload...just heavier feel.

But, sometimes that extra weight is too much for somebody just moving up, hence the drop11 then...which
is a drop10 :)
