Pros: This is a great bat. Excellent grip, paint job, and much more. I love the pop on it. I've only had this bat for a couple of days and used it in BP and it was amazing! This is thee perfect bat for a kid. Based on the height, the weight will fit perfectly and you will see and improved swing and balance in yourself/ your son.
Cons: None. I highly recommend this bat for its grip, pop, balance, and sound.
Pros: This bat is the best i have ever used, i am 12 years old and 5'10", i got the 32 21 size and it is perfect for me. The sweet spot is huge and it has amazing pop. this bat is great for power hitters because it is heavy and has a big barrel. people say that all vexxums are top heavy but i think that this is evenly balanced. also it sounds great when you hit it well.
Cons: grip gets slippery after a while, i apply pine tar to fix this
Pros: After having this bat for a while now, I can give it a decent review. My son took his first real BP this past Thursday for fall baseball. On his second round through, he crushed one 10 feet above the the home run line, and the ball was still climbing! My son has never been a power hitter. He is much more of a contact hitter, who digs out hits. This bat is very well made, has excellent balance, and in my opinion, is the best bang for the buck in youth bats out there! Do your son a favor, and get him this bat!
Pros: When I first saw this bat it was inside a video game, no joke. When I saw it I knew it would be great. My instincts were great. This bat I think has about the same power as an Omen. I highly recommend it.
Pros: Just got this bat today, and headed with my son to the batting cages. Right away, he liked this bat more than his TPX. Time will tell if will hit better in his fall ball league, but right now he likes the balance and quality of this bat. From a parent perspective, I like that this bat will be allowed in Cal Ripken in 2013 due to the correct stamp being on the bat. Quality seems to be excellent, and I only gave it 4 stars due to not using it in an actual game yet.
Pros: Some good things about this bat is that it's the best bat that I've ever used plus i am playing for Michigan softball just to let you know and I have had many bats in my life but I have to say this is the VERY VERY VERY BEST BAT I HAVE EVER EVER EVER USED in my whole life!!! It has great non viabrating feelings as in it doesn't viabrate when it hits the ball it's feels like your just swinging without hitting a ball like you don't feel the ball hit the bat! And it has a great grip,pop, and great sound when it hits the bat also when you swing you keep your balance very easily! I vary much recommend this bat for children even I use it and I'm 18 years old and I LOVE this bat I've hit 17 homeruns over the fence! And a couple grandslams! I really do recommend kids using this bat!!!
Cons: There arn't any things about this bat that ive had trouble with I've actually hit better than I used to ever since I got this bat. I APPSALUTLY LOVE THIS BAT!!!!!!!! it's helped me in softball!
Pros: Right now for the discounted price you can't beat it, really. It's a highly rated youth bat with an extra long barrel. My 12 year old son is having great results (32"). It's not as balanced as the SV12 or Voodoo. It's a little top heavy due to the much longer barrel, but has great pop, and a very wide sweet spot. It's terrific for power hitters. Great investment.
Pros: I got this bat and it sounds like alloy, which it is. I thought it would sound more like a composite bat. It's got great pop right out of the wrapper and its the most comfortable bat to swing ever. I got the 31" 20 oz. and its great. The grip is very good too.
Pros: Read the reviews and liked the pop and the HR's that were written. Bought for my 9yr son because it seem like a good deal(cost) and pop/HR(reviews). 9yrs old. first 3 games 6-8 with 2B and just ripped 1st HR 210'. Good feel balance and grip 31" 20oz. I recommend.
Pros: Had bad luck with an Easton 10 years ago for my softball league and always heard that DeMarini's were bordering on illegal. Checked with my local little league and this bat was approved. Bought it and ever since my son has been crushing it. Love the sound of the pop and my boy likes the size and feel of it. Now I know why folks are willing to pay top dollar for a good bat. Thanks justbats for a great deal on this!
Pros: Well-balanced, comfortable, and high-quality bat. Purchased for my 9-year-old son who had moved up from an Easton all-aluminum. This hybrid bat gave him the pain-free confidence to go after fast-balls... results are in the records...
Cons: None. You don't necessarily need a big-barrel bat to hit well.
Pros: I bought this bat for my 8 year old.The bat is hot out of the box and he loves it. We practice on a much larger field than the one on which we play and he is hitting shots that will be HRs on a regulation field.
Pros: Excellent construction and finish (although I'd like to know where it's made). Well balanced and the kid got 2 doubles first time out. The ball seems to pop more off the bat than his previous full aluminum Easton's. A great bat at a closeout price!
Cons: My 9 year old boy wished it showed more fiber-weave and less paint. A minor concern!
Pros: My son is 54" tall 70lbs and I bought him the 30" 19oz. We had our first practice game against some above average pitching, he went 3 for 3 with one jaw dropping homer to deep left field against the best pitcher in the older age group. This bat is the difference, from being average to above average. No sting! Unbelievable bat!
Cons: Limited supply in this length and weight. Great bat!
Pros: Purchased for a 12 year old. I do not see anything extraordinary about this bat. It feels good to him. He swings it well. I'm not going to blow smoke about how he hit 3 home runs with it. It has nice pop, doesn't sting much, and he is comfortable with it. It seems as lively as a teammate's Voodoo.

Asked by Mike
The DeMarini Vexxum: DXVNL Youth is a two-piece bat that is slightly end loaded. The Easton XL3 is a one-piece alloy bat that is also end loaded. The DeMarini Vexxum will have more flex, better for a contact hitter. The Easton XL3 is stiffer, better for a power hitter.
I just got this bat and now we have a week of cold weather, 40 and 50 degree temperatures. Do I need to worry about using a half-composite bat in those temperatures?
Asked by Sean
We recommend the DeMarini Vexxum: DXVNL Youth, along with all composite and alloy bats to be used in temperatures above 50 degrees. Baseballs becomes very dense in cold weather and will increase the chance to damage the bat.

One response says the bat is "end-loaded" and another says it has a balanced swing weight, which is correct?
Asked by Mark
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVNL is one of those bats that some players will say feels endloaded (mostly players with below average strength), while some players say it feels balanced (players with slightly above average to well above average strength). The Vexxum is classified by DeMarini as a balanced bat, but it's on the "heavier" end of the balance spectrum.
My son is 11, good contact, but not much power due to relatively slow bat speed/mechanics. Would you recommend this bat and if not what would you suggest? Can a bat like this be used in the batting cage and or practice?
Asked by BC
Yes, the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVNL Youth is a great bat for a contact hitter because it has a balanced swing weight. This bat can be used in the cage as long as you hit real baseballs. The dimple balls are not recommended because they are very dense and may damage the bat.

My son just turned 8, he is 60 lbs. and 52.5" tall. When he connects he usually hits the ball pretty hard. My concern is the 29" length, I know what the charts say but is this the right bat for someone his age and size. Would a 28" bat may be more appropriate, just do not want to sacrifice bat speed even though I am a huge fan of DeMarini.
Asked by Rayban

His current bat is an old hand me down Easton Black Magic 29" -10 drop. I'm looking at this bat or the Easton Reflex. What would you recommend? Trying to increase his bat speed through the ball as well as the sweet spot. Thanks.
Asked by e-rock
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVNL is an end loaded bat and would be better for a player with power. The Easton Reflex is a very balanced bat, perfect for a player who needs to increase their bat speed.
Why are the Demarini bats numbered around the top of the barrel at the cap?
Asked by Crutch1010
This is called the rotation index and is helpful when breaking-in DeMarini's composite bats. These just act as a reminder to the player to rotate the bat between each hit to ensure an even break-in. For instance, if you're looking at the "5" on the index, the next hit you should rotate it so you're looking at the "6".
My son will play minors this year. He is 9, 4' 8", and weighs 75lbs. He currently uses a 29" 17oz. bat. Which would you recommend between the Easton XL1 and DeMarini Vexxum?
Asked by smith
Since your son was using a -12 before it will be best to stick with a lighter bat. The DeMarini Vexxum is going to be best for your son because of the two-piece balanced feel of the bat.

Asked by Rel
All of those bats are very similar. All the bats are two-piece bats. The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum is the only one with a composite handle. The DeMarini M2M might sting a little more. I love the DeMarini Vexxum. It has a huge sweet spot and has little or no sting to it.

How long does it take to break in to get the best results?
Asked by the Beast
Generally composite baseball bats are going to need around 150 to 200 hits on them to start performing up to their potential. When breaking in a composite baseball bat, it is important to start off at about 50% power and gradually increase as your swing count rises. It is also important to rotate the bat about a 1/4 inch on every swing. This ensures that your bat gets evenly broken in.

Asked by AlxDad
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVNL Youth bat will be a Two-Piece Hybrid model bat. The barrel will be Alloy while the handle will be Composite. This bat will be very balanced in swing weight. It will also have the long barrel design. The 2012 CF5 will also be a Two-Piece bat. This model will be 100% Composite in material. It will require a break-in period of 100-200 swings before you will see the best results. This bat will have a double wall barrel. Both DeMarini bats will help eliminate the vibrations that may reach the hitters hands because they are Two-Piece bats instead of one. The Easton XL1 will be like the CF5. It will be a Two-Piece all Composite design. This bat will have a slight end load barrel heavy feel. That is the one big difference compared to the Vexxum and CF5 being balanced. The XL1 will feature Easton's vibration reduction technology as well. All three bats will come with Full 12 month warranties through their manufacturers.

Asked by Doug
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum would be a perfect choice. Since the Vexxum is a two-piece bat, the flex will help him with bat speed and bat whip.

Asked by steve
Both are two piece ts with a composite handle and alloy barrel. The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum will be more end loaded than the 2012 DeMarini Vendetta. The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum will be better for a power hitter.
I am trying to decide between the DeMarini Vexxum: DXVNL Youth or the Easton Convert XL:LT460 Youth. My son is 9 years old, 88lbs. and 4'11". He is a strong kid.

Asked by Bryan
Both are great bats, but I would give an advantage to the Vexxum in terms of overall performance. Both are well suited for contact and power hitters alike, but I feel he'll get more pop with the Vexxum in his hands.

Both are great bats. The Catalyst is a one-piece bat that will be pretty stiff. If your son is a stronger hitter with good swing speed, the Catalyst may be the better option due to it's one piece, stiff design. The Vexxum is a two-piece bat with more flex. If he's more of a contact hitter or has below average to average swing speed, the Vexxum may be the better option.
Is this Little League approved for 2012?
Asked by NOAHMACK
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum is in fact Little League approved for 2012. This bat also has the new USSSA stamp, so it will be legal for use beyond 2012 as well.
What is the difference between the Vexxum and the Easton Surge? Which one is considered a better bat? Does it need to be broken in? Thanks!
Asked by DC
The DeMarini Vexxum and the Easton Surge are very similar bats. There really isn't one that is better than the other. Neither one of these bats will need to be broken-in.
Is this bat composite or aluminum?
Asked by ABR
The 2012 DeMarini Vexxum contains both materials. This bat has a composite handle and an alloy barrel.
I did not see this bat on the list of approved bats for little league. Do you know if Little League approved this bat?
Asked by Jimbo
Yes. The DXVNL has an alloy barrel and is 100% legal for Little League. Even if it's not on Little League's approved bat list, they have a disclaimer that says if a bat meets the specifications of Rule 1.10, then it is still legal for use.
I know no one has a crystal ball, but will this bat with the correct stamps be legal in Cal Ripken in 2013?
Asked by Mike
As of today, the 2012 DeMarini will be legal in 2013 in Cal Ripkin.
When it says the bat is approved for Little League and Babe Ruth because I am in Little League and its my last year. Would I be able to use it in Babe Ruth?
Asked by hman277
Absolutely. This bat is approved by both Little League and Babe Ruth. This bat has the new USSSA stamp being required and it is also stamped approved for Little League and Babe Ruth.
Looking for a good -11 32/21 bat for my boy. Avoiding Composite barrel due to cold. Boy is a strong power hitter. Can someone help me between the Vexxum and the Easton XL2 and XL3?
Asked by Timmy
While all three of these bats are great choices, I would suggest going with the XL3 if your son is a strong power hitter. This bat was designed more for power hitters and is a one piece design, unlike the XL2 or the Vexxum. The one piece design of the XL3, along with the end loaded feel of this bat, will help your son generate even more power.
Hi, is this bat marked as a BPF 1.15 bat? Per our Cal Ripken league, all non-wooden bats have to be marked as BFP 1.15. Thanks.
Asked by Yaz
This bat is marked as such. It features the new USSSA stamp that is required, so this bat is legal for use in 2012 and beyond.
Do you need to break this bat in?
Asked by Eric
This bat has an alloy barrel and doesn't need a full break as a full composite would. However, it does have a composite handle, and I would recommend about 100 hits off a tee starting at about 40% power and gradually increasing. Also, be sure to rotate the bat a quarter of an inch in your hands between each hit
Does the Vexxum have great pop to it?
Asked by Nate
Yes, the Vexxum has excellent pop.
I've seen this bat sold in two color schemes, the black barrel, and the other has a yellow barrel. Any fundamental differences between the two such as weight, year, etc?
Asked by Jim
The youth Vexxum bats with a yellow barrel are the 2011 model and the youth Vexxum bats with the black barrel are the 2012 model. Both bats will be the same, except for the difference in color and the model year.
My son is playing ball and his bat has to have a stamp on the bat that says usssa bpf 1.15 on it. Do all your bats have this on them?
Asked by tim
Yes, it has the USSSA stamp on the bat. The newer models will have the stamp.
Two years before founder Ray DeMarini started his own company in 1989, he was hired by ESPN as the advisor and host of a series of instructional softball videos. To this day, Ray DeMarini's Reflex Hitting System is still ESPN's most successful home video.
Taking his expertise and credibility to his self-named company, DeMarini made headlines in 1993 with the world's first multi-wall bat, the Doublewall. Innovation hasn't let up since, as the company continues to be a trend-setter in baseball and softball bats.
In 2000, DeMarini joined forces with Wilson Sporting Goods to develop the .... read more
