Pros: Good pop Doesn't sting hands Unique knob feels great for bottom of lead hand Not a "heavy" drop 10
Cons: None so far
2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2
Good feel, son says it is similar to his previous years Voodo Bats and he has been a loyal DeMarini player for 5 years now
*Only lost 2-3 mph from 2017 Mako - great results from the USA bat space
Pros: Good pop Doesn't sting hands Unique knob feels great for bottom of lead hand Not a "heavy" drop 10
Cons: None so far
Pros: Good pop for USA bat, especially in sweet spot
Cons: A lot of vibration despite 3fusion handle technology
Pros: Good pop; Nice grip; grip starts to fade
Cons: Too end loaded
Pros: Good feel, son says it is similar to his previous years Voodo Bats and he has been a loyal DeMarini player for 5 years now. Nice balance.
Cons: These bats are really dumbed down. Barely clearing the 200ft fence with it, yet, put a maple Marucci in his hands, which is legal for little league this year, and the ball is flying 240ft at a much higher rate. At the DeMarini price, I could have purchased 3.5 wood bats compared to this one.
Pros: Good pop, no sting, only used in cage no game yet.
Cons: It seemed a little heavy, I went from mako beast to new bigger barrel usa bat.
Pros: *Only lost 2-3 mph from 2017 Mako - great results from the USA bat space. *No sting - hybrid connection works great *Terrific balance
Cons: None so far
Pros: could not tell a difference in the new usa bats to the old bats with this bat. my son is 10 4â€™8â€ 85lbs and is swinging a 30â€ like they never changed the rules. He is a contact hitter and usually uses a wood bat for BP so swinging this bat was nothing for him. great bat!
Pros: Bat is as close to the old bats as any we tried. Very similar to the old -13 Voodoos, just obviously heavier. A shame they didn't make at the least a -12 for the 2 piece USA Youth version. Love the bat, its just slightly heavier than ideal for my 7 year old son. But thats only con, and not really a con i suppose. The ball sounds like the old bats when coming off this bat, cannot tell a difference off the hoof. typical Demarini Voodoo POP! Whereas the other USA bats we tried were obviously less than their predessor. This includes the Ghosts and Slugger 618. I am guessing the USA Composite bats have a longer break in period than the previous composites although that remains a guess at this point. Do not get caught up in the Composite vs Alloy debate with this bat, If you were a Voodoo fan before, this is your bat! Top USA bats of 2018 IMO are Demarini Voodoo and the Slugger 718. But Slugger 718 does not come in a 28"
Cons: bat only comes in a -10, but no cons on the bat itself as far as performance or feel.
Pros: Bat exceeded expectations of a USA bat. has similar pop to previous Voodoo bats. bat feels great, nice Alloy sound. Best USA bat my son tried. Pop was greater than that of the composite Easton Ghost X -10 or -11 and alloy Slugger 618.
Cons: -10, nothing against this bat, just wish Demarini released a -11 or even -12 for USA 2 piece bats. We previously had a 28" -13 Voodoo. -10 is too heavy for most 8u players on machine pitch.
Pros: My 10 year old was swinging the USSSA Easton Mako Comp 2-3/4" (-10) Baseball Bat - 27"/17 oz last year and the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat is the best comparison to a composite that Iâ€™ve seen. I compared it to other USA bats, Easton S650, Easton Ghost X, Easton Beast X, Easton S750C, 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10, and the 2018 Rawlings 5150. The Voodoo the best balance, pop, and contact sound than the other USA bats I listed. Most importantly it is roughly a -9 to where the other USA bats I listed are barrel heavy and range between 2 an 4 ounces over the listed weight.
Pros: My son like the bat, and getting more comfortable with the weight and sweet spot. Hits the ball harder each day.
Cons: Took 250 swings to get the timing down on the bat, but I dont really consider this a negative thing
Pros: Bought this Bat around 3 weeks back and I got to say that it has a really nice POP for being a USA Bat. The 31 drop 10 Bat purchased did come at nearly 1 lb. 5 oz. heavier but this is something very common with the New USA Bats from what I have previously read. The Bat is well balanced and feels really good when being hold. the Homerun rate did drop by about 60 percent since not as Hot as the Bats from the previous years but on the Bright side, there is NO STINGING on my kiddo's hands what so ever on the bad hits. DeMarini did not disappoint us, the Voodoo comes at really good price and I would definitely would recommend it!
Cons: USA Bats are not at Hot as previous bats, good thing there is always the line drives to the fence though!

My son is 5â€™8â€ and 135 lbs what size bat should he use?
I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 32 inch length based off the information you've provided.
My kid is 5'2" and 95 lbs. What size of bat should I get him?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 31 inch model.
My son is 4'2" and 58 lbs. What size would you recommend? Can't decide between a 28 or 29.
We would recommend getting the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 28 inch model based on your player's height and weight.
My son is about to turn 10 years old in early March. He's 4'7" and 69 lbs. He's a contact hitter who's been using a 29" bat. Would you recommend sticking to a 29" or could we move up to a 30"?
Based upon your player's height and weight, our general recommendation would be to stick at the 29" length. However, if he feels ready to get something a little longer (or you feel he will be growing), you should be fine to get the longer 30" length of this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) as long as the 20 oz weight can be handled.
My son is 9 years old, 76 lbs and about 4'8". He was using an older 2013 DeMarini Dark 29/17 last season. What size bat would you recommend? What is the true weight of this bat?
Based on your player's specifications, I would recommend the 29" 19oz model of the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2. This bat, like most every other bat, is going to be about 1-1.5oz heavier than the listed weight.
Is there a "break in" period for this bat or is it hot out of the wrapper?
This bat will not require a break-in period because it has an alloy barrel.
What is the safe outdoor temperature to use this bat in?
While there is no temperature specifically listed by the manufacturers, we generally recommend 55 degrees or higher if you can avoid it. Obviously sometimes that is not possible. Be sure to try to store your bat indoors if possible.
Since this bat has a 2-piece construction, should it not to be used in a batting cages, like a full composite?
We do not recommend that you ever use your primary bat in batting cages. The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 is no different and its' X14 alloy would be highly susceptible to denting.
I would like to purchase one of these in size 29. What's the closest to advertised weight you have?
A 29 inch model of the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 will weigh roughly 20.6 ounces.
Son turns 11 years old in March. He is 4'11". He weighs 110 lbs. He is an above average bat handler. What size would be best for him?
Based on your player's height and weight, we would make a general recommendation of getting this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) in the 30" length as long as the 20 oz weight can be handled effectively.
My son is 9 yrs old, 4â€™10â€ an 105 lbs. What size would you think I should get?
Based on your son's height and weight, I would recommend getting the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 30 inch model.
My 13 year old plays middle school that is now adopting the USA bat standard. He hit a 30/25 CAT 7 last year, but he can't use that this year. I feel like we are back in rec ball with a 31/21 but is that the appropriate size with this new bat standard?
I would recommend your player to continue swinging a -5 if that is what he's comfortable with. Unfortunately, the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 is not available in a -5 but I would recommend something similar like the 2018 Easton Beast X -5 USA Baseball Bat: YBB18BX5. The Beast X features a one-piece, alloy construction with the X-Tended barrel design for a massive sweet spot.
My son is 14 years old, 5'6" and 165 lbs. What is the -10? Coaches said we should get a -3 to -5. What do you recommend?
-10 is what is commonly referred to as the "drop", or the length to weight ratio. If a bat is 33" long, and is a -10, then it weighs 23 oz. 33 (length) -10 (drop) = 23 (weight/oz). For his age and size we would certainly recommend a -3 or a -5 bat. BBCOR bats are what I would probably recommend, just look for that term in the title. BBCOR bats are all -3 and intended for high school and college play.
My son is 10 years old (league age 11), 76 pounds, and 60 inches tall. What size bat would you recommend?
Would recommend getting the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 30 inch model based on the player's height and weight.
My son is 11 years old 55 inches and 85 pounds. What size would you recommend?
Given your player's specifications, I would recommend the 29" 19oz. 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
My son is 5â€™2â€ and 104lbs. I was thinking 30â€ 20oz. Thoughts?
A 30" bat could certainly work, but I would actually recommend the 31" 21oz. size of the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
I have been comparing 2-piece composite and hybrid models and am unsure which way to go. Which would be better for an 8 year old that is roughly 50" tall and weighs 70 lbs in the 29"/-10 size? He has a good swing but is not super strong and has a lighter swing (slower hands). It seems that all composites are heavier bats. I'm also looking for something that will have little to no sting. This is for Cal Ripkin pitching machine league.
Inherently, there is not going to be a performance difference between aluminum, hybrid and fully composite bats. Choosing between a hybrid or composite bat will come down to player preference. If you hope to limit sting, I think a two-piece design, like this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2), would be a good fit.
Are half and half bats intended for or made to help kids with weaker wrist action get the extra whip or snap?
Two-piece bats in general can typically result in more whip or snap in each swing. The hybrid design in the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 features an alloy barrel and composite handle for players who like both materials.
This bat is not on the approved list at (USABAT.COM). Does this mean it can not be used?
This 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXU) is actually on the list of approved bats by USA Baseball. Because of that, it will be permitted for use in leagues that are requiring the new USA rated bats.
What size DeMarini Voodoo would you recommend for my 10 year old son? He's 4'9" & 95 pounds.
We would suggest a 30" length for someone around his size.
What length and weight do you recommend for my son who is 4â€™6â€ and 70lbs?
Based on your sons height and weight we would recommend a 29"/19 ounce 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
Is this bat USSSA approved?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) is approved for USA leagues but is not approved for USSSA leagues.
My son is 12 years old, 5â€™4" tall and 125 lbs. What size do you recommend for him and which DeMarini bat?
We would recommend a 31" or a 32" length for someone his size. Any of the DeMarini bats that we have including this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo would be great options.
What are the main differences between this Voodoo and the Voodoo WTDXUO2 currently on sale for $149.00?
The main difference between these bats is that the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) is a two-piece hybrid bat while the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo One -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUO2) is a one-piece alloy bat. Two-piece bats typically have less vibration and more flex than one-piece bats, but choosing between the two comes down to player preference.
My grandson is a loyal DeMarini user and must obtain the new bat. He is 11 years old, 78 lbs and 58" tall. He has been using a 30" (drop 11). Is a 30" (drop 10) Voodoo the right bat.
Based upon your player's height and weight, we would make a general recommendation of getting this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) in the 30" length. That size would be 20 oz in weight. However, if you wanted to be able to have multiple length options of bats, it may be worth considering this bat in the 31"/21 oz size as well. That size would be a little long and heavy at the outset, but would give your player something into which he could grow with time.
My son is on the smaller size for his age (11 years old). He's been using a 28"/16 oz. He's about 65 lbs and 4 ft tall. Should he go up to a 29?
Based upon your player's height and weight, our general recommendation would be to stick at the same 28" length. However, if you wanted to get something longer, you could certainly go with a 29" length bat. If you got this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) in the 29" length, it would be 19 oz in weight. The 28" size, would be 18 oz in weight. At the time of your question, the 28" and 29" sizes are available for purchase.
My 11 year-old son is 4â€™8â€ and weighs 100 lbs. I was thinking about buying him the Voodoo 31â€ drop 10. Do you think this is too big for him? Also, I heard the Voodoo runs heavy and isnâ€™t really a true drop 10. If this is true, how much heavier are they?
Based on your player's specifications, either the 30" or 31" 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2, would be a great fit for him. As for the Voodoo, I just weighed the one we have on display and it came in 0.2oz heavier than the listed weight. Typically bats range from 0-1.5oz heavier than their listed weight because of the additions (ie. grip tape, etc) that are added after the weighing process.
My 9 year old is about 4â€™7 and 85 pounds, what size do you recommend?
Based off the information you've provided, I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 29 inch and 19 ounce. This bat is also classified as a balanced bat which will help your player get the bat through the zone.
My son is 12 and will be 13 in May. He is 5'7" and 120 lbs. Should I get him a 31"/21 oz -or- a 32"/22 oz?
For a player that is 12 or 13 years old, I would recommend forgoing this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) as the -10 length-to-weight ratio will be too light for a player of that age. I would recommend looking to a USA rated bat that has a -8 or -5 sizing to it. A -8 or -5 sized bat will help prepare your player for the -3 BBCOR bats that will be required in high school.
Is this bat approved for play in Dizzy Dean?
Yes, this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) has the USA Bat stamp and will be sanctioned for play in Dizzy Dean leagues in 2018.
My son is 13, and is 5'6 102 pounds. Would you recommend the 31/21?
Given your player's specifications, I would definitely recommend a 31 inch bat. The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 could certainly fit that billing. However, considering his age I may suggest also looking into some drop 8 bats in order to start preparing him for the standard drop 3 that he'll have to swing in high school.
We ordered a 28/18 for our 10 year old who is 4 foot 11 inches and weighs 107 pounds. Is that a proper size or should we return it for another size?
Based on your player's height and weight, I would actually suggest a 30" 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
My son is 9 years old. He's 4'8" and 115 pounds. Would you recommend the 30/20?
Yes, based on your sons height and weight we would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in the 30"/20 ounce size.
What is the difference between this bat and the Voodoo One?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 is a two-piece hybrid bat, with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Voodoo One is a one-piece fully alloy bat.
My son is 54" tall and weighs 65 lbs. He recently swung a 29"/16 oz bat and it was light. What size bat for my son?
Based upon your player's height and weight, I think he can stay at the 29" length. However, you might look to swing a heavier bat with n 19 oz weight (as long as he can handle the 19 oz weight). I would recommend considering this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) in the 29"/19 oz size.
What size would you recommend for a 4'8" 10 year old? Was thinking 29" -10 but not sure.
I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 29 inch bat length and a -10 drop weight.
What size bat would you recommend for a 12 year old that is 5'6" 145 lbs? Last year he was using a 32 in 21 oz would the 32 in 22 oz be a good fit for him?
I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 with a 32 inch bat length and a 22 ounce bat weight for a player with the specs you have described.
Will there be a USA Baseball CF5? Debating on whether to buy a Voodoo or wait. Also, my son is 5' and 90-95lbs. He has been using a 30" -10 bat for over a year. Should I go up to 31" -10? He has one of the fastest if not fastest hands on his team and at times I think he could use a heavier bat.
I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 30" length but if he's confident with the weight, you could go up to a 31" length.
My son is about 4'5" and weighs about 75 lbs. He had a weak swing last year but has grown and gotten stronger. He will be in the batting cages at least 1/week this off season. I was leaning towards the 29/19 for him but I don't want him to outgrow the bat. Do you think a 30/20 is a better way to go?
Given your son's size, weight, and expected use-rate, I would suggest the 29/19. If you were planning to use it more sparingly then I could understand buying a bat for him to grow into, but in the scenario of using it in the cages a couple times a week I would just go with the bat that is currently the best fit given the expected lifespan of aluminum bats.
I purchased the Demarini VooDoo 28" -10 for my 9 yr old and the 29" -10 for my 10 year old. I am aware that actual weight will be a little more then listed weight but both the 28" and 29" weighed exactly same on a scale, 20.7 oz. The 28" was too heavy for my 9yr old. How can same exact bat different lengths be same weight?
It is hard for the manufactures to be precise on every bat. Every bat is slightly a different weight depending on multiple variables such as grip tape, paint job, and other factors.
My son uses the CF5 (-11) bat and likes it, but we have to get the new USA stamped bats. How does the 2018 Voodoo -10 compare?
This 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) will be different than the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) as it has a -10 length-to-weight ratio (and the CF5 had a -11 length-to-weight ratio). As well, this 2018 Voodoo will feature a larger 2 5/8" barrel diameter (while the CF5 would have been a 2 1/4" barrel bat). Lastly, the USA stamp on the Voodoo will restrict the performance on the bat too a much lower level than what would have been allowed off the CF5 used in the past.
(1) Would this bat be approved for 13U since it has the USA logo, or do all 13U players need to swing BBCOR bats? My son is smaller [currently using a DXVBR -9]. (2) What bat would you recommend? (3) Also, if he does have to go to BBCOR bats, does the bat need to have the USA logo?
 The legality of this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) will be dependent upon the governing body of your league. You will need to check with a coach or league official on what the bat ruling is for the 13U division of your league.  For a 13U player, I would typically recommend a -5 size baseball bat if a BBCOR is not being required ( a -5 bat will best prepare the player for moving up to -3 BBCOR bats when they get to high school).  If your player is required to swing BBCOR bats, the USA logo will not be required on the bat (no bats will have a BBCOR stamp and USA stamp present).
Is this bat balanced or end loaded?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 features a balanced swing weight.
What is the actual weight of the DeMarini Voodoo Balanced USA bat?
This bat is a -10 drop. However, almost all bats will probably be about 1 oz heavier than the listed weight, due to things like the glue for the end cap and grip tape not always included in the listed weight.
For two years my son has used Voodoo RAW 32-19. I know this bat is legal for 2018 but worried about weight. Looking for DeMarini that is similar. He is 13.
I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2. If you're concerned with the weight I would recommend the 2018 Rawlings VELO -10 USA Baseball Bat: US8V10 as it's one of our most balanced bats.
Does this bat need to be broken in or is it hot out of the box?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 features an alloy barrel and thus will be hot out of the box. Only composite barrel bats will need the break-in period.
Is this bat comparable to the CF8 that my son currently uses?
The big difference here will be the USA stamp on the new 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2. The level of output will be more similar to that of a wood bat with the new USA stamp.
Will USSSA allow this bat since it does not have their stamp?
Yes, USA Bats are going to be legal for play in USSSA. You would have no problems using the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a USSSA tournament.
What is the actual weight of the 29/19 and is this bat end loaded at all?

I chose Standard Delivery and got the bat a day and a half later. I believe Standard Delivery said 3-5 business days so I was EXTREMELY impressed with that!
