2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid USA Drop 10

The 2018 Easton Beast X Hybrid is a two-piece bat with a composite handle and aluminum barrel. The bat has an end load that makes it feel like a drop 8, but for the first year of USA bats the range of swing weights was expected to be big---and this definitely falls on the heavier side of things.
