Pros:  Good pop. Ball comes off bat fast. My 7 year old son has hit two inside the park homeruns. I don't mean 7 year olds fumbling the ball homeruns I mean hitting the ball over heads and rolling to the 223' part of the field. He has hit a few doubles and numerous singles. He enjoys hitting with this bat. Great bat to gain confidence. After his second homerun he stated, "Dad I'm so proud of myself."

Cons:  Seemed to me the bat needed to be broken in. After about 50-100 hits through practice this bat started to perform.

Pros:  Grandson loves this bat! Got him a 27/17. He has been using it every week with his hitting lessons and it has good pop, very durable, and most importantly he says it has NO STING. Better get one before they're gone

Cons:  No 28/18.

Pros:  Great purchase for the first year of kid pitch. My son is 7 and has been hitting well with this bat. He has a hard hit double to the fence in each game this spring. I bought the 27/17 for a seven year old and he feels confident at the plate. The bat has a unique sound to it and i really like it! The entire team is using this bat now. For the price you can't beat it so buy the bat and let your kid make contact and become a better hitter before dropping serious money on a bat.

Cons:  For 50 bucks...none!

Pros:  Solid feel with good pop right out of the wrapper. Feels lighter than its true weight which is good for us. My son went 3-3 in his first fame with this bat with solid line drives after struggling to make solid contact with his other bats all season. Its given him the confidence we have been lacking so far!!

Cons:  None to mention at this point.

Pros:  Looks and swings fine, it's just dead. My 8U all star team used this as the team bat to hit heavy balls in warm ups so we didn't mess up anyone's bat that actually has pop. It's not awful and actually hits pretty well for my 4 year old, but the older kids with power...it just doesn't have any.

Cons:  Just has no pop. It sounds like hitting with a cardboard box and is just dead.

Pros:  cheap price, entry bat for a young player

Cons:  I have gone through 2 and both lost their pop and sounded hollow after a few hits. You can hear the change. Justbats makes you work with Demarini and they will only replace the bat once. Save you money and buy something else and perhaps from somewhere close to where you live so you can get a better warranty. I would not recommend this purchase.

Pros:  The ball just jumps right off the bat and into the outfield but even if you roll over the ball is still hit hard and looks like it is all good. My son has this bat and he shot up from a 8 hole to the 3 hole. He is hitting home-runes to all corners of the field. He say that this bat has the best feel, pop, and as zero vibration when he makes contact with the ball.

Cons:  Had it sense the week after it came out but still don't know the durability. but by the looks of it, it should be all good.

Pros:  My son is 13 and we bought this bat as a backup bat to his Lousiville Slugger. He has only had it 2 weeks now and he hit outside on 300’ fences for the first time last week and hit 7 home runs. i think his Louisville Slugger just became his backup bat.

Cons:  Only had it a couple of weeks so cant speak to the durability yet.

How does this compare to the newer Voodoo balanced? 26"/16 oz, 2 5/8" barrel. What is a good recommendation for that size?

We have 2 options currently available for a 26"/16 oz bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. They are the 2016 Easton S3 Junior Big Barrel (JBB16S310) and the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Junior Big Barrel (DXVBX). Both are excellent options.

For a player that is 6 and around 50 lbs we would recommend getting the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX in a 26 or 27 inch length (depending on player's height). With his age in consideration, it might be wise to consider a -12 bat.

We've only used this bat once, and I expected to hear a "ping" noise on contact, but what we got was more of a crack or pop. I thought this was unusual, but has anyone else experienced this?

This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) is made with a one-piece, all-alloy design to it which typically produces a "ping" noise at contact. I haven't heard many other complaints in regard to the sound being produced by the bat at contact with a ball. However, if the bat is performing well, I wouldn't let the sound being produced by the bat, keep you from using the bat in practice or games.

(1) What's the difference between the DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) and the DeMarini Vexxum NVS Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXY)? (2) Do 2 1/4" bats have longer sweet spots? (3) Do you recommend using a big barrel bat?

(1) This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) will be a one-piece, all-alloy bat with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and -10 length-to-weight ratio. The DeMarini Vexxum NVS Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXY) is a hybrid bat (alloy barrel and composite handle) with a 2 3/4" barrel and -10.5" length-to-weight ratio. Overall, I think the bats will feel pretty similar in their weighting. Biggest difference in feel will be at contact. This Voodoo will be stiff at contact while the Vexxum will feature flex (due to its 2-piece design). (2) There may be some youth bats (2 1/4" diameter) that have a longer barrel length than some big barrel bats (2 5/8" or 2 3/4" diameter). The general thinking is that the longer the barrel length; the bigger the sweet spot. However, I would not say that as a general rule, the barrel lengths and sweet spots on the youth barrels will be longer than what is on big barrel bats. (3) I always recommend using a big barrel bat if it is allowed because the big barrel bats typically cover up more area of the strike than the youth barrel bats.

My son is almost 6 and plays coach pitch and T-ball (he has a great skill set and does well). He currently uses a 26" (-10) Easton S3. I'm thinking he may get more bat speed with a shorter bat. (1) Should I get a shorter bat? (2) How does this bat compare with the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) - 2 5/8"?

(1) If he did just fine with a 26"/16 oz bat this past year, then I don't think getting him a smaller bat would be a necessary move. I would suggest to probably just stay at that same size. (2) This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) and the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) will both feature an all-alloy build and a 2 5/8" barrel. Overall, I think the bats will have a pretty similar potential for performance.

Can you use this bat in Babe Ruth coach pitch? The 2 5/8", 27" 17 oz -10.

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to use a big barrel in Babe Ruth until the 13-15 year old division. The 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX would not be legal for coach pitch in Babe Ruth.

This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) will not be legal for use in the Minor Division of Little league Baseball (7-U). This Voodoo has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter and the Minor Division requires all bats being used to feature a 2 1/4" barrel diameter.

No, the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat DXVDX is not approved for Little League due to the barrel diameter being 2 5/8". Unfortunately we do not have any 2 1/4" barrel bats in a 25" that are not designed for tee ball.

The 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX is approved for Pony Baseball. Since this bat has a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, is not a drop 3 and will not be featured in a length longer than 35 inches then it will meet the necessary specs for Pony approved play.

My oldest son had a DeMarini Voodoo, and I loved it. Will this bat as good as the CAT 6?

This 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) will compare most similarly to the Junior Big Barrel model of the Cat 6. Both bats will be single-piece, all-alloy bats with balanced swing weights. Overall, it will be hard to compare the bats in regard to performance because the Cat 6 has gotten really impressive reviews, but this Voodoo has yet to receive any feedback on our website.

I am looking for a 26 inch 16 ounce 2 5/8 inch barrel bat for my son. His coach recommended the Easton S3 but I cant find it in the size we need. How does the DeMarini compare to the Easton S3 26 inch 16 ounce 2 5/8 inch barrel? Can my son use the DeMarini for Pony baseball?

Youth big barrel or Senior League models like the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) do not typically come in that size. Actually, it is the only model we currently have in that size. The 2015 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL15S310) only goes as small as a 28 inch 18 ounce.

Based upon your player's age, I would definitely recommend looking to the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17MK8) since it has a -8 length-to-weight ratio. If he is a strong hitter, then I think he will able to adjust to a -8 length-to-weight ratio and end-loaded swing weight.

Since USSSA recently banned the 2017 CF Zen Balanced (-8) 2 5/8" Baseball Bat I am looking for a comparable bat for my son. How does this bat compare to the CF Zen? Also does the Mako Beast need break in time like typical Mako's and if so how many swings? Last question - what would you recommend a CF Zen drop 8 user switch to? Thanks...

The Mako Beast is arguably one of the closest bats to the CF Zen performance wise. It will require a similar break-in period since it is a composite bat just like the CF Zen. This Mako Beast is an excellent choice to look at, as well as other options like the Marucci Cat 7 or the Louisville Slugger Prime 917.

The 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK8 will have a slightly larger sweet spot compared to the 2016 model as this bat will have a slightly longer barrel (about 1.5 inches longer than the 2016 model).

What is the difference in the MAKO BEAST XL model and the regular MAKO BEAST model? Which model is better for a 5' tall, 90 lb 11 years old?

The main difference in the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK8 and the regular MAKO BEAST is the swing weight design. The MAKO XL models will feature an end-loaded swing weight design while the regular MAKOs feature a balanced weight design. For a stronger player with faster bat speed an end-loaded model typically is more beneficial as these bats will allow the player to generate greater barrel whip through the zone which can translate to additional power in the swing. A balanced bat like the regular MAKO is a better design for those players that are contact or gap to gap type hitters. For an 11 year old who is 5' and 90 lbs, we would recommend the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK10. The bat listed in the question (2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK8) is better suited for a player in 7th grade.

Does the MAKO BEAST XL have more pop than the 2016 MAKO?

The big difference between the 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK8 and the 2016 model will be the 1.5 inch extended barrel that the 2017 model features. This means a larger sweet spot which can potentially produce more pop.

My 13 yr old is transitioning from Little League to a high school prep squad. Question is, does he go to a -8 or -5 in the BEAST XL? He's 5'4" and was swinging a Mako XL TORQ -10 last season.

It really just depends on what he can handle. If your son can handle a -5 at this point that would be the ideal transition to -3. However, if he cannot handle the -5 this year using one will offer him no advantage. It will only hurt his swing. I would recommend going to a batting cage and swinging both of them and seeing what he is more comfortable with.

Is this bat legal for 13 year old Babe Ruth?

The 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17MK8) is NOT going to be legal in 13 year old Babe Ruth. This is because for a composite bat to be legal in 13 year Babe Ruth it would need to be BBCOR certified. This only applies to composite bats. With an aluminum bat you are able to use whatever size you would like.

Description for 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK8
New for 2017! The latest and greatest members of the Power Brigade are here and ready to be unleashed.

The 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL is the newest version of one of the most popular baseball bats in the industry and it now has the biggest and most powerful composite barrel that Easton has ever made. The difference between the MAKO BEAST and the MAKO BEAST XL is the fact that the XL offers an end loaded swing weight rather than your typical balanced design. An XL end load gears more weight towards the end of the barrel for a more powerful and higher performing baseball bat that allows the ball to fly further and further. By extending and combining the game's longest two-piece composite barrel with the game's fastest swing speed, this bat is an absolute BEAST that offers the lowest swing weight index out of the entire 2017 Easton lineup. A low swing weight index results in a model that delivers power through fast swing speeds. Easton's redesigned TCT Thermo Composite technology now provides an extended speed barrel design. So, the BEAST's barrel is longer than ever for more plate coverage and a huge sweet spot. This extended barrel is connected to a 29/32 inch composite handle by the patented two-piece ConneXion technology that maximizes energy transfer while eliminating sting for optimized feel and comfort. Adding to the specs is the fact that each MAKO BEAST XL comes wrapped with the formidable HYPERSKIN grip. Easton: Unleash The Beast!

This 2017 Easton MAKO BEAST XL Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17MK8 features a -8 length to weight ratio, a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter, and the USSSA 1.15 BPF Certification. It is also backed by a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty!
