My son is 13, 5'9" 175 lbs. Last year he used a DeMarini "end loaded" bat. What difference would he notice with this balanced version?
A balanced bat, such as the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVX5) will help with bat speed. The bat will come through the zone quicker than an end loaded bat.
When will the 2015 model be released?
We do not currently have an expected release date for the 2015 version of the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVX5).
Is this bat BBCOR certified?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVX5) is not BBCOR certified. Only adult -3 bats are BBCOR certified. We recommend the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR (DXVXC)..
Is this bat good for both power and contact hitting?
You can hit for both power and contact with the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVD5) Senior League bat, however it is designed more for a contact hitter as it is more balanced.
Does this bat need to be broken in?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVX5) Senior League bat features an X10 alloy barrel that will be hot out of the wrapper and will not require a break-in period.
We have a Vexxum youth bat that looks just like this one. My son has moved up this year (13 years old). What is the difference between the senior version and the youth and will a 13 year old really notice the difference?
The difference between the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVX5 Senior League Bat compared to the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXL Youth Bat is the size of the barrel. The Senior League vesion features a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and has a -5 oz. length-to-weight ration. The youth model features a 2 1/4" barrel diameter and has a -12 oz. length-to-weight ration. In most cases, a 13 year old will want to swing the Senior League model.
2014 Vexxum vs. Marucci Black 2: What's the same and what's different? They look very similar to me, but the price difference makes me wonder of I'm missing something.
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVX5 Senior League and Marucci Black 2: MSBB28 Senior League are both going to be balanced hybrid designs. The Marucci Black 2 will have an extended barrel for a larger sweet spot and a kevlar reinforced group to eliminate sting. The Vexxum will have a wider composite weave which will provide a little bit more flex and trampoline. Both bats will be very similar in their composition. It will be a few minor details in the technologies used to construct these bats that will make them different.
Which would be a better bat Voodo Overlord or this one and what would be the biggest difference in the two?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVX5 Senior League and the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD: DXVD5 Senior League are both going to be two-piece hybrid designs. The Voodoo will have a paradox handle that will make it feel a little bit stiffer. The Vexxum will have a little bit more flex in its C6 composite handle.
I am 13 years old, and I am worried a -5 will be too heavy. Will I be okay?
It can depend on many factors such as your height and weight as well as strength. It is important to keep in mind that high school baseball requires players to use a -3. Therefore, a -5 is typically a good transition size.
My son will turn 14 this season. He is undersized but has a good swing and is a contact hitter. He needs a very balanced bat. Would you recommend this bat or the Marucci Elite? Thank you.
Both the Marucci Elite and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVX5 Senior League will be very balanced. I have heard many customer reviews saying the Vexxum feels really balanced and light during swing weight.
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum DXVX5 or the 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR: B1405 Senior League. Which is better? Pros/cons of both in a comparison of -5 weight ratio.
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVX5) and the 2014 RIP-IT Senior AIR (B1405) are both very balanced bats. The Vexxum is a two-piece bat and designed for a contact hitter. The RIP-IT AIR is a one-piece bat and is typically preferred by a power hitter.

How does the pop of this bat compare to the pop of the Voodoo?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVX5 Senior League and -5 Voodoo have the same performance certification, so "pop" will be similar. They are designed for two different players, so it depends on which design you use best. The Vexxum has a balanced swing weight for more bat speed, while the Voodoo has a slight end load that power hitters use more efficiently.
My son is 13 5'6" and is swinging a 31-8, want to move him up in weight either a 31-5 or 32-5. Thinking 31-5 would be easier transition, what do you think?
I would recommend sticking with a 31". I think the moving him up in length and added weight might be too much for him. You don't want to get him a bat that is too heavy and have the bat head dropping through the zone.

Based on your son's age, height and weight, I would recommend a 30" in the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum.

I have been debating on this bat or the 2013 Easton XL3. I am a contact hitter and like a balanced weighted bat. I would like to know: Which bat is better for me?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVX5 Senior League bat features a very balanced swing weight. The Easton XL3 features a slight end load and is designed for a power hitter. Contact hitters would better utilize the balanced swing weight of this Vexxum.
I am 12 years old, 5' 6" and 115 pounds. I was looking at the Easton XL1 and the DeMarini Vexxum. What is the difference between these two bats? I am more of a power hitter so I am wondering if the balanced design takes away power/pop from the bat? I realize that the XL1 is end loaded.
Both the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum and the 2013 Easton XL1 are top of the line bats. The Vexxum is very balanced and is a hybrid design. The XL1 is a two-piece composite design with an end loaded swing weight. The more balanced the bat, the quicker your swing speed. A balanced design will not take away any power or pop from the bat.
