Speaking from my own experience... I had one of my players with an ASA Ghost. They bought it against my advise because our program mostly plays USSSA tournaments. Anyway, Core sent me 3 of these new Mizuno's (Ti, PC, and C2) for demo purposes. All the players in our org. brought their bats and we had ourselves a play-off. bat vs. bat
Each girl got to take about 7 swings with every bat, including her own. We measured exit speeds off a tee. The Power Carbon won about 90% of the time. It beat the LXT, Xeno, Ghost, and DiMarini CF10....
The Ghost was hot and gave a solid run, but the PC took the title in the end. The biggest bonus here was the PC is stamped for all sanctions, and the ASA Ghost is not. The new dual stamped Ghost is getting a lot of mixed reviews, most of them say its not as hot.
Where are you seeing the reviews for the new ghost? How are teams getting them this early to give reviews? I have been going through every source i know to try and locate one early or even a review on one. They are not doing a pre release at tourneys this year (straight from East coast/Georgia Easton Rep) and are being very tight lipped and cracking down on even pictures of it. So im curious where you saw this because id like to read it as well.

I contacted my Easton guy and they said none were even out there for teams...but Im sure there are some.

Im gonna say the finished product isn't even done yet. There are prob test versions out there

BUT, lets try to keep this on the PC...Trying not to get this all Ghost'ed up :)

Well finally got out to the field and we did some front toss. I have to be honest, it was a little underwhelming. Not the same jump as my DD's Ghost, but most disappointing was vibrations were brutal. The disappointment on my DD's face was obvious. She said after it was a good bat, but definitely not a fun bat to hit with. I even flipped a couple to myself at the end of practice and even I felt the vibrations fungo style ... go figure???

Dont know what to say J, you seem to never find a bat that others like...haha. Think
you didnt like the Ghost either.
Unfortunately, haven't found one yet that's suited my DD like the 31/20 CF8. But maybe she's just getting worse. I wasn't crazy about the Ghost, but my DD loved it. The vibration is a big surprise with the PC, my DD actually stopped a couple of times to shake her hands out, and that was only front toss... like I said I felt vibrations just hitting fungo.... IDK, just sharing a real experience and being honest, :(. Not seeing the pop that others have seen either...
