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
My 11 YO swings the 32/22 and it swings more like a 24oz
My son swung a few different USA bats and this bat defnitely had the most pop and had a very balanced feel to it
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 4'8" 85lbs and is swinging a 30" 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 I'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!
Pros: strong sweet spot no vibration very slight end load feel, but not end loaded tapered knob, very comfortable weighs what it says, some USA bats are much heavier
Cons: smaller sweet spot reduced trampoline action due to new USA stamp price
Pros: My son swung a few different USA bats and this bat defnitely had the most pop and had a very balanced feel to it. He is able to control the added mass of thr big barrel bat during his swing. No sting due to the two-piece construction, but slight vibration.
Cons: Slight vibration $250 price tag but worth it
Pros: Great pop compared to the other USA bats we've tried. Vibration is not an issue...my son and other players have been using it and not one complaint of stinging hands. Compared to other more expensive USA bats this is a great bat.
Cons: Non so far
Pros: This bat performs like the 1.15 bat. Great pop and zero hand sting. Changed from the Ghost X because of poor performance and stings on miss hits. Buy this one and you will not be dissapointed.
Cons: Wish i would have bought it first
Pros: better pop than other bats being used, has good balance for my son and grip feels good. he likes it overall and ive seen better ball travel compared to the Easton and other bat line ups
Cons: still feels a vibration
Pros: Little to no vibration. My son is 9 weighs 80lb and is using 28/18.
Cons: Not much pop. Was really hoping this would be a good top end USSSA bat and compare to non USSSA. Bat sounds like a piece of dead wood with ball strike.
Pros: Great pop. My son is ten and he likes the weight and the length.
Cons: none yet
Pros: no vibration. decent pop for new bat standards. big barrel
Cons: cost is a little steep
Pros: It's hard to come up with any pros, especially since the USA bats seem flat and have less pop. It looks good--does that count? And it might hit better if it was ACTUALLY BALANCED, but it is NOT! A kid that swings an end-weighted bat may get better results.
Cons: NOT balanced! Feels very end weighted. My son went from hitting triples and doubles to barely and rarely getting on base with this bat. He still uses a Marucci Hex Alloy for travel ball and hits fine with it, so I have a hard time finding pros for this bat. We do love Marucci bats, just not this USA version.
Pros: Can't think of any, other than looks good in the dug out.
Cons: Has the POP of a pool noodle. definitely over rated and over priced.
Pros: Great pop. My son has never hit a home run. Never expected it with these USA bats. Has 4 so far in practice. Sound is great.
Cons: It's heavy.
Pros: light weight. great grip/feel. kid hits well.
Pros: great bat
Pros: Nice pop compared to other bats with new standards! Bought for my 9 year old because his Easton Ghost X has a horrible sting with a solid hit. The Voodoo has much less sting! Several of the other players are now using his bat and hitting great with it!
Cons: The finish on the bat didn't hold up like I expected...lots of scratches and scuffs after a few uses.
Pros: great bat excellent pop almost no stingers i highly recommend it to club ball players in AA or AAA
Cons: none so far
Pros: Great bat hit hard with it. Has a lot of pop. Hit doubles and triples every time
Pros: I hit a homer first at bat with it the second at bat i tried my other bat and popped out.
Pros: Great pop off from the bat. Very little vibration on mishits and none on the sweet spot. My 8 year old son is 54 inches tall and 73 pounds and swings the 29 drop 10 with no problem. He consistintly hits hard line drives into the outfield and hard ground balls through the infield. I was a Easton fan until now. Demarini does not dissapoint, do not hesitate to buy this bat.
Cons: Should have switched to Demarini sooner.
Pros: About a dozen practices and three games into the season. So far this has been a good bat. Decent hits off of it by a handful of different players. Pop is better than expected.
Cons: A few complaints of vibration in cooler weather. $250 price tag.
Pros: my 7 year old hit 4 (in the park) home runs with it this weekend! He hasn't complained about any sting. Impressive for an all metal bat.
Pros: Excellent pop for a USA bat not heavy at all. Almost no vibration at all.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: great "POP" I really impressed with this. I have only purchased Eastons for years. With the Rule change I decided to try the VOODOO and I am impressed with everything except the paint, and or sticker.
Cons: Paint doesn't stay nice. 7 games into season and it looks 2 years old. Marked up bad!
Pros: This is a good bat, good pop off the barrel
Cons: we changed to this bat in mid season, it took some time to readjust to the weight of this bat , but worth the change
Pros: A much better pop then other USA bats we've seen this season .....
Cons: none Yet
Pros: Amazing bat looks great and feels great I love having it as a bat
Cons: My season ended before I used it in a game
Pros: Great durability lots of pop for a USA bat no vibration when hitting the ball generally great feel and overall great bat.
Pros: this bat is as good as it gets in the USA hybrid space. swings more balanced than the Louisville 718 & lighter then the easton beast X. swings smooth with minimal sting on mishits. alloy barrel is hot out of the wrapper..
Cons: none. another great stick from demarini..
Pros: my kid says it has a balanced swing weight
Cons: bat end cap broke off in three mknths of use right in the middle of cal ripken districts sent bat back to demarini and they replaced ot with a LS 917 select cause they didnt have amymore 32" available so at least they back their warranty which is a good thing
Pros: it is awesome
Cons: no con
Pros: of all the USA hybrids we used this season, this swings the lightest, although does have an end-loaded feel like the others. Has legit pop for a USA bat.. minimal sting on mis-hits..
Cons: like all other usa bats, this weighs in above the stated weight, & def has an end-loaded feel which might not be for every hitter..
Pros: Has nice pop for USA bat. If you hit it in the sweet spot has a very nice spund and will launch off the bat really nice.
Cons: the barrel isnt the biggest. to hit the ball far you have to hit it perfectly
Pros: My 11 YO swings the 32/22 and it swings more like a 24oz. relatively no vibration and the pop is better than any of the other bats (including the Zen, Ghost that we own). May be the best bat on the USA market. We have players on our team with the 30/20 and although it doesnt drive the ball as well, it still has excellent rebound. We love this bat.
Cons: None right now
Got a question about the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE , FROM A PERFORMANCE STANDPOINT BETWEEN THE 2018 MODEL & THE 2019 MODEL ?
No, there is no difference in performance between the two models.
Would this bat be good for my 10 yr old son? Hes 5â€™ tall, 115lbs. and he plays 12u.
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 is one of the highest rated USA bats, so it would certainly be a great option for your player. If he's 12, this would be the last year I would suggest a -10 bat. At 13 and 14 you would want him to start swinging a -8 or -5 to transition to a -3 that is required in high school baseball.
Is this bat good to use in USSSA because your review questions below one says yes and the other says no. Can you please clarify? Thanks.
It depends on the interpretation of "good to use." In the sense of legality, the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 will be allowed for use in all USSSA play. However, in the sense of performance level, it would not be wise to use this bat as it will be noticeably lower performing than a USSSA model.
My son has been swinging a 30 inch -5 USSSA bat with success. He is doing a USA event and needs a USA bat. Would you suggest going to a drop 8 to create more bat speed to compensate for less pop of the USA bat?
Would not recommend dropping down in weight to compensate for the thicker barrel walls on the USA models. The lighter weight may increase bat speed slightly but with less weight to throw into the ball you may not see any difference in distance. Instead of looking into the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 you would want to consider the 2018 Louisville Slugger Select 718 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS718B5.
How far above the stated weight does this bat actually weigh, specifically in the 29 in?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 will come in about 1.6 ounces heavier than the listed weight.
With the composite handle, does this bat need to be broken in like a total composite bat?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) features an alloy barrel so it does not need to be broken in.
Is this bat a composite model?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece, hybrid design with an aluminum barrel and a composite handle.
Is this bat a 2 5/8 barrel?
Yes, the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 is a 2 5/8" barrel.
Can you use the Voodoo in cold weather?
There is no set temperature where it gets too cold to use a bat, but we here at JustBats generally recommend 45 degrees as the rough cutoff where you want to use a cheaper, older bat if you can. The Voodoo does have an alloy barrel which is generally a bit better in the cold also.
What bat would be better 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 or the Louisville Slugger 618? Beside the price, and the 1 to 2 piece?
The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 features new 3Fusion technology which has improved the durability and sting reduction of the bat. The 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -11 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS618B11 will be one ounce lighter and will feature a new speed ballistic end cap which increases barrel length and improves balance.
Is this bat a one-piece or two-piece?
This bat is a two-piece, hybrid design with an alloy barrel and composite handle.
Can"t decide between the voodoo or cf zen, which do you recommend?
The main difference between these two bats in the material used for the barrels. This 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 will have X14 Alloy whereas the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX will provide a paraflex composite barrel. Your preference in bat will primarily be decided between whether you prefer alloy or composite barrel material.
My son is 54 inches tall and 73 pounds. What do you recommend for a bat length and weight?
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 29" 19 oz. 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
My son is 10 years old and 4 ft 7 inches (56 inches) tall but only 62 pounds. He is a contact hitter. Which length and drop do you recommend and which bat? I think a balanced bat may be better for him thinking end weighted might make it seem to heavy? We also would like to reduce sting vibration. Please advise on which bat you might recommend.
I would recommend the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 29 inch length. The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 features a balanced swing weight and two-piece construction. The two-piece technology will help reduce the vibration on your players hands.
The cap on the knob end of this bat fell off. Will that affect the bat's pop?
It will not affect the pop of the bat, no.
My son is 53" tall and about 65 pounds. What would you recommend for bat length and weight?
Based on your son's height and weight, I would recommend getting the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 in a 28''. The correct weight will depend on his strength, but based on his size a -10 would most likely be the best size.
My son is starting out in Cal Ripken, is 8 years old, 51" tall, and weighs 52 lbs. What bat do you recommend for minimal sting and good balance?
We would recommend a 28" length for his height and weight. The best bat we have for sting vibration in this size would be the 2018 Rawlings Quatro -10 USA (US8Q10). If you think a 29" would work, then this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA (WTDXUD2) would also be an excellent option as we currently don't have it in stock in a 28" length.
My son is 4"4' and weighs 65 lbs. What size bat would you recommend?
We would recommend a 28" length as probably the most common for his height and weight.
My son is 11 years old, 5'1" tall, 90 lbs, average strength, and a switch hitter but prefers to hit from non-dominant side. What size bat would you recommend?
We would probably recommend a 30" or 31" length for his height and weight.
My son's previous Voodoo weighed about 2.5 oz heavier than listed. Can this be expected with this Voodoo?
This 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) will come with a weight over what is listed (unfortunately, all the USA Bats are weighing a decent amount over what is listed). It appears that these Voodoo -10 USA bats are weighing about 1.5 oz over the listed amount.
My son is 12 years old, 5'1" and 113 lbs. He is really strong. Would this bat work for him as far as size/swing?
Based on his height and weight, we would recommend a bat in the 31" length. He would probably be fine using this 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTDXUD2) in the 31"/21 oz size. However, if he is especially strong, I might recommend looking to some -8 bats in the 31"/23 oz size as well.
Is this the right bat for my son who is 11, 5ft 6in and weighs 120? His previous bat was an Easton XL3 32' -11. He has tried the Beast -10 and did not like it.
Based on what you have said about your son and his height and weight we would recommend the 32"/22 ounce 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
What size bat should I buy for my 11 year old son? He is 56 inches tall and 84 lbs. Also, he loved the Mako beast but due to new bat rules, we need a new bat. Would this be a good comparison?
Given your player's specifications, I would recommend a 29" bat. This 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 is a two-piece hybrid bat with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. This will feel stiffer and provide a more audible noise on contact when compared to the two-piece fully composite construction of the Mako. However, the 3-Fusion technology should minimize negative feedback much like the Mako's of the past.
What's the difference between the DeMarini WTDXUD2 and WTDXUO2?
The difference between the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 and the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo One -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUO2 is the bat construction. The Voodoo One will offer you a one-piece alloy construction for a stiffer feel and potential for more vibrations on contact. The Voodoo will offer a two-piece hybrid construction with an alloy barrel and composite handle (in place to reduce vibrations.)
My son is 11, 4'10", and 95 lbs and has been playing with a DeMarini 29 inch 18 oz CF7. Great bat, but him growing 2 inches and now with new bat rules for LL, we need to find a new bat. He assessed using an Easton Beast X -12 30" 18 oz (from a friend) did great with it. Just wondering if we should look at more bats? Most 30" are 20 oz. I was hoping to buy DeMarini again, but only see 30" 20 oz bats. Any advise would be appreciated.
Based on your son's height, weight and age, we would recommend looking into a 30 inch model in either a 19 or 20 ounce weight; depending on what you feel your player can handle. The 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 is a great option as is the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX. The 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX will be better balanced than the hybrid design of the Voodoo with a weight of about 1/2 ounce heavier than listed weight. If you wanted to get something in a drop 11, then the 2018 Louisville Slugger Solo 618 -11 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS618B11 would be a great option to consider.
I'm looking at this and the new 2018 CF Zen. My son is smaller, he's 13, is 5 ft tall and weighs probably 79 pounds. We used composite bats every year and this last he used a 29"17 oz -12. We need to move him up for middle school so should we look at -10 or -5 and if so which since we have always used one piece composites with the exception of one alum/com combo. Any advice? I'll be darned we just bought a $300 bat from you guys that he played 4 games with, now we get this USA rule change switching back to rec.
Based on your sons height and weight and what he was using previous I would probably recommend trying out the 30"/20 ounce size. Both the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 which is a hybrid option and the 2018 DeMarini CF Zen -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUFX which he had been using previously are both great options to take a look at.
My son is 12 4"7 70 lbs. What size bat should he use?
Given your player's specifications, I would recommend your player swings either a 29" or 30" size of the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2.
My son is 10 and is 4'11" tall and weighs 110 lbs. What size do you recommend? Thanks
We would recommend a 30" or 31" length for his size and weight.
My son is 5"8' 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, 4"10' 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 5"2' and 104lbs. I was thinking 30' 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 4"6' 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, 5"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 4"8' and weighs 100 lbs. I was thinking about buying him the Voodoo 31' drop 10. Do you think this is too big for him? Also, I heard the Voodoo runs heavy and isn"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 4"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.
