DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult
Average Customer Review
I used to be an Easton person but now Easton has let me down. Demarini has stepped up to the challenge and has blown me away. They are now producing such high quality bats that they are now the only bats I will buy. This bat has great balance, power, and obviously the coolest looking bat out there. This is the bat at the top of the market. Get the VOODOO!
There will Never be a problem with this bat.
Have hit with Marucci, Rip-It, EXO and Easton BBCOR's at the college level. The 2012 VooDoo is my choice for overall pop, durability and feel. Easton's have great pop but I have seen 4 break during games this year and I have yet to see a VooDoo break. I hit 1,000+ balls a week and I am very happy with the consistent pop and lack of problems! Highly recommended by a current college hitter that has tried every bat out there.
Great pop and has a HUGE hitting zone. i got jammed and it sent the ball to the outfield for a bloop single. I was nervous about this bat at first but it was worth the money. Feels like the red BESR voodoo to me! best bbcor by far!!!!!!
scratches easily.... who cares
Excellent weight distribution. The ball explodes of the barrel in an obvious large sweet spot. Hitting the ball to all fields is naturally reinforced by the driving power up and down the barrel. Never feel like your giving something up by going the other way on outside pitches.
High demand will keep prices high until something better comes out.
This bat has great balance. The half composite,half aluminum alloys for great balance and pop. The look is amazing and the grip is phenomenal. This is definately the next bat I'm getting. I'm amazed that it is BBCOR approved with such power and balance.
None and probably never will be.
Big sweet spot, good pop for a BBCOR bat, like the half sizes,like the balance, good price compared to all the comp bats. No annoying ping like some of the other bats.
Graphics a bit much for me but has nothing to do with performance. Everybody want to use it.
Good Pop and a little better balance than last years model. I would say it is the best alloy bat I have tried. It felt better than the 5150, Rip it, and just as good as most of the alloys in the power brigade (S1 excluded)
I have the 2011 model and had an opportunity to demo this one. I will give DeMarini props on a little better balance. However, the bat still has the same bad feel on contact. In my opinion after sampling most of the BBCOR bats composite is the way to go. I haven't been a big composite fan but after trying the prototype, omaha, all of the power brigade (6 bats), Voodoo, and 5150 I have come to believe the Easton S1 or XL1 is the way to go. I believe it is $100.00 better than the Voodoo. However, if you do like the new alloy feel in BBCOR then I would recomend this.
Great balance and good feel. Like the new grip because it is bigger than most demarinis. Compared to the vexum this bat has a noticeable balance enhancement. Good pop. If you are a High School player like myself then this is the best bat. Other reviews sugested composite but in Texas we are not allowed to use any other bats than bbcor. SO if it is the same for you this is the best buy.
paint scheme technology balance (for power hitters...real men) pop end cap I got this bat in August and loved it ever since. Hit with just about every BBCOR out there and my unbiased opinion is that the VooDoo outperforms all the others. The paint scheme and the pop are high quality. If you hit it good, the balls gonna go. its no BESR but maybe now we wont get 5'4" chumps hitting 300 footers.
scratches a bitt, but its a bat. flex is a little more than id like but i think itll help with power. traditionally i swung an Exogrid and i liked the once piece feel. pop is less than a BESR for a reason, so quit complaining if you cant hit it out of the infield. thats all i got to say about that
Great pop. Anything that hits off the middle of the sweet spot is going a long way. Large barrel. This bat is very well balanced and swings faster than most other bats. The grip is high quality
The new Easton speed series is the only bbcor bat that I can get a better swing speed with
Just got the bat balanced when swung sweetspot goes through the word demarini awesome graphics amazing pop I'm a small 14 year old about 5'8" 120/130 lbs hit one about 200 feet just tossing a ball in the air just using my arms after hitting 1000 balls a few minutes before cushy grip Hybrid demarini is amazing numbers on end cap to make sure it don't get messed up perfect bat smaller guys get it now don't get the 2013 model this one is better looking otherwise same bat this ones grip better and cheaper
Everyone will want it paint scratches easy makes my Y.A.K. glove look lame
i really like this bat ive had it for about three months and i really like the bats sweet spot and another good thing is when you dont hit the sweetspot it doesnt hurs that much like other bbcor bats. This bat is great i would recomand it.
the only thing i really dont like is it is very top havy. This is mostly because its a two piece bat so its hevier on the barrel part.
I have always been a Demarini guy, but I thought since we had to use bbcor bats they wouldn't have much pop. I was wrong. The 2012 Demarini Voodoo is the best of all of the bbcor bats, because it has great distence and it is one of the most comfortable bats I have ever used. And it lookes AWESOME.
There is nothing wrong with this great new bat.
DUUUUUUDE, DEMARINI HAS DONE IT AGAIN great pop, has the ping noise tht is uncommon in BBCORS, feels heavy until u start swinging, very balanced, great grip, AND SCARY DESIGN... id be afraid to pitch to this baby.
paint chipped after taking my first few swings off a tee
It is a hitters bat as it is a little top end heavy. I am a line drive hitter and prefer a heavier bat so the bat is perfect for my style. This bat has the perfect weight distribution for my style. I hit .500 with this bat this season.
Scratches easily and the end cap material is a little flimsy.
The bat has a good balanced swing and strong handle. Massive sweet spot and composite handle make this bat one of Demarinis finest bats in the 2012 lineup. Im hitting the ball up to 50 feet farther.
EVERYBODY on my team wants to use it. Make sure to keep it clean or it wont seem as attractive. Dont at all think this will make your hitting worse.
this bat is very good i am 13 and 5'4 and this bat is great for me! it is very balanced and i am the only kid on my team who uses bbcor and i hit it just as far! this is by far the best bat i have ever used.
none except the paint chips a little bit and the grip starts to come off.
Really smooth bat, it can be used for a long term... Well balanced, the pop is incredible, there is little to no chipping on my bat and I've had it for at least two months. Perfect well rounded bat, has to be my favorite!
After some tuff love the end of the bat starts to peel away, its not a huge deal but its kind of annoying
AWESOME BAT! people say that tis bat is "end-loaded" but to me its really balanced.my friend has the exogrid2 and this is more balanced than his. i like the way it pings when you hit it,unlike some other BBCOR bats.and it has nice popfor a BBCOR. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS BAT TO ANYBODY!
Best of the lot regarding 2012 BBCOR bats after several demos among which included the more expensive CF5, the illegal Marucci Black and the over hyped Rip-it. Great bat while it lasted.
Lost pop midway through the summer league season. Lasted a total of 36 games and a handful of summer league practices. Durabilty is a question.
I had the -9 but it broke in half during warranty and DeMarini ran out of my size so they gave me the BBCOR instead. Good bat if you are a power hitter. Very endloaded with great grip.
Only good for certain hitters. Pop wears out after about a year and a half.
Great design, great feel through the zone, end heavy (which I like), fantastic pop, keeping it for another year and getting the 2014 model next year! My son was 13, 5'4", and only 110 lbs. and I hit a 335 ft. bomb over the left fielders head. This bat basically gave him the confidence to go from the 6th hitter to leadoff then Clean-Up! BUY IT!
Everyone wants to use it!
Love this bat. I will always be a DeMarini guy. Great pop, love the weight distribution, and gonna buy another soon.
My team always wants to use it. The grip did come undone but I am a lefty hitter and the tape job is or right-handed hitters. No big deal though
Nice graphics. Exceptional pop while it lasted.
Made it through one season of H.S. varsity baseball and four weeks of H.S. summer league before it started developing noticeable dead spots in the bat. Rating is based on the fact that it was a $300.00 bat for essentially one year of use.
Biggest sweet spot on the market..im a freshman in highschool and i play varsity and everytime i hit the ball it goes to the warning track or over the gate!!! Great bat.. i wish u could make the designs more cool
Everyone wants to use it and the grip doesnt last
great pop. Bat lasted me about two years. Would have been great if it didnt break.
the grip kept moving around, had to keep retaping it. After 2 years, the handle snapped off after a completed swing in bp. Paint chips and plastic grooves break at the end of the bat.
This bat has great pop, very large sweetspot, very durable barrel(doesnt dent). The graphics are cool, and the grip is the best you can get(Demarini makes the best grips)
The end cap is pretty large, and sometimes when the ball hits it, it can scratch or even crack(mine has only scratched)
great bat. I struggled last year and coming into this I was scared to switch to bbcor. amazing bat. i hit 270 with it during practice only gets better when its composite.
not really a con but you know when you dont hit the sweetspot. it doesnt hurt but you feel it
Big bat head, nice graphics, ball goes if you can square it up.
All of the weight is in the barrel and handle flex is not stiff at all. Doesn't really matter what bat you use. Balls that are squared up jump same off this bat as they do on the 5150 and new Eastons. its a matter of feel. if you like endloaded and a lot of handle flex this is good. If you prefer a stiff flex (like me) then this is not recommended.
great pop for bbcor, comfortable, nice balence (a little top heavy but you will get used to it quick) , awesome design. for all of the talk about bbcors, this bat blew me away. great job demarini
gets dirt quick but who cares its a bat, also everyone wants to use it, but i guess thats good
-bat is very nice to hit with -nice strong line drives if you have a good stance -the bat is balanced perfectly for a stronger player -crisp swing
-end cap has graphics that eventually peel off from wear and tear -paint chips easily if you clean your cleats by hitting them with your bat -(none of these matter)-
Bat Balance. Bat Grip. Ball flies off this bat just like a BESR bat. Make sure when you first use it spread out you hits on the bat. Bat design.
Just one minor thing I don't like bats with deep inbeded end caps but I don't like this ones end cap either it sticks out to much. But nothing really major.
Great balence, nice grip, nice feel to the bat. Just got the bat and went two for three with hard line drives
I think in my own opinion that you can deffently tell the difference between BESR and BBCOR. it doesnt have as much jump of the bats as the besr. but that is how it was supposed to be made. the bat does scrath easy.
Good bat, nice pop, good sound. Doesn't zing too bad, looks pretty cool
Within two months of nothing but a little bit of live pitches with real baseballs in a Warm indoor facility, something inside of my bat broke, and it sounds god awful and doesnt hit the ball anywhere. VERY dissapointed in the durability, i expected more from a demarini. I would not reccomend this bat, it wont last.
Good Grip, Sweet Graphics. Good POP for BBCOR really isnt there anymore. It is the best BBCOR i have swung better then the omen, and surge. Cool Sound
Slightly Top Heavy Better than most BBCORs. Compared to all other previous Voodoos this one is definately a few steps down on performance. Small Sweet Spot. Stings Bad if not hit solis on the sweet spot. Also my bat speed is much slower with this bat than all of my BESR bats.
Very well balanced. Performs as advertised. Decent pop, even for a BBCOR bat. If you have the money, I would reccomend this bat. Glad it's made in USA. p.s. Most fears over using BBCOR bats are psychological. If you start out thinking you'll hate the new bats, you will. Have a positive attitude and make the bast of the BBCOR standard
When UPS dropped off the bat, the box had massive dents and look as though it had been kicked up the front steps to the door. Luckily, the bat didn't dent or get scratched. Just goes to show the duribility of the Voodoo I guess.
When my 15 year old got this bat it seemed to have good pop in the cage, but in the field you could see ball was not traveling as far as with the old bats. I thought the homeruns were over with, but surprisingly he hit one out on a 320' field with this bat.
Sound. When my son hit the above mentioned home run the bat made very little sound, just a dull thud. Sometimes if you hit it right on the sweet spot it makes a decent sound. Sweet spot is small.
The looks are cool. The end weight gives the bat momentum when you swing the bat.
Horrible pop compared to other bbcor's like the new marucci, demarini cf5, and easton power brigade series. Personally, I hate end loaded bats so it didn't suit me unfortunately.
