Pros: my son loves this bat.
Pros: Bat is hot right out of the wrapper. My son has always had the ability to out hit everyone else on the team, but this bat brings him to another level. The ball is coming off the bat at least 5mph faster. Thankfully we do not have to switch to the new USA bat standard until 19. Many of the folks that bought new USA Bats are not happy with them and going back to their old ones.
Cons: None - Buy it before they are gone and you are forced to go to the USA BAT Standard
Pros: Son comments are that the ball takes off, no vibration.
Cons: Not happy with the grip durability or feel. Made the change son is happy.
Pros: Very nice bat. Tons of pop. Just a dope bat.
Pros: Bat swings great, no vibration and the ball flies off of it!
Cons: Only Con is if yoi dont own it yet!

Cons: Iâ€™m not sure about the durability, yet. So far, no complaints.
Pros: Bat is easy to swing and feels lighter than what it is Seems durable Son seems to like the flashy colors, all about confidence
Cons: would be nice if they offered a drop 10
Pros: * Swings lighter than it weight * Easy to control * Composite handle makes it swing easy * Seems to be durable
Cons: * no noticeable cons yet after about two months of use
Pros: My son is 8 and absolutely loves this bat. He replaced his CAT 6 with the 2016 HEX Alloy. It is a very well designed bat with tremendous pop right out of the box. No break in period required. This bat has great balance and a very large sweet spot. My son's confidence has even improved with the use of this bat. The sound it makes on contact is awesome. I have been approached by many coaches and parents at tournaments inquiring about how they can get this bat. Marucci has done it again.
Pros: Performance/Pop is unmatched. Great bat for any age...I have a 8 & 13 yr old that swing this bat, best alloy bat on the market. Very durable, have been taking 500 plus cuts a week since January....no dents and pop is still as if it just came out of the wrapper. Kids love the sound when the ball comes off the bat. We have had several parents and coaches inquire about where to get this bat.
Pros: Excellent bat, I have bought multiple Marucci bats and this is by far the best one since the CAT5. My son plays on a 9U travel team and has been dropping bombs with the 29/19. He also has the composite Hex which is a good bat in its own right but he loves the feel of the allow and the ping.
Pros: My sons uses nothing but marucci bats this bat hits just as good as the old cat5 first game went 6 for 6 great pop marucci has out done there self this time great bat
Cons: None great bat
Pros: We brought the 27 inich for some of our baseball team some of kids really like it & doesn't have much vibration at all its a great bat
Cons: Don't seen any bsd in it great bat for certain kids
Pros: Bat is evenly weighted and has tons of pop.
Cons: Bat dents very easily. My son plays high level travel ball and the bat dented after the third game he used it.
Pros: i have purchased 10-15 bats for my boys. this is the winner. they love it. tons of pop. weighted very well. big fan of this bat. marucci got this one rt. never have been a marucci fan till now. other kids on team use it over their bat.
Cons: nothing. really.
Pros: Both my sons play travel ball. My oldest had the Cat 6 32/27 and it has tremendous pop. The Hex alloy is a great bat. My youngest started hitting with it right away and the ball flies off the bat and has the awesome ping sound. Get this bat you won't be disappointed.
Cons: None so far but I have to see how durable the bat is.
Pros: my son loves the bat. he loves the balanced swing weight, the sound, the feed back, and he likes the graphics. Pretty obvious that this bat has a lot of pop. The ball jumps off the barrell.
Cons: He hasn'had it that long and it already has a dent. not sure if this is a bad thing against marucci or just a negative against -10 alloy bats in general. they all dent.
Pros: Great pop right out of the box..
Pros: Has the best pop out of any bat my son has ever used!!!! No sting when he gets jammed on the hands.
Pros: Lots of pop and a great big sweet spot for an alloy bat. The handle really does eliminate sting while being very stiff also.
Cons: The finish could be a bit less slick a matte finish would be lots better.
Pros: Our league can only use Big Barrels in tournaments, so they were all excited in bang that ball out of the park, its a great bat, and gives any kid confidence on the plate.
Cons: There isn't any Cons.
Pros: my 130 pound 5'1" nine year old power hitter loves this bat. he swings it with great bat speed and enjoys the sweet sound when he crushes the ball
Pros: Bought for my 9 yr old after seeing a kid blasting balls at end of summer tourney. Did not disappoint, right out of box, deep fly balls. Similar to Cat 5.
Cons: Wish the handle was a little thinner like his old Easton XL.
Pros: My son loves this bat. It is very well balanced and still has great pop. He also likes the loud ping the bat makes and the fact that he doesn't feel any vibration.
Pros: Ball jumps off with wicked sound, no sting, huge sweet spot, great overall feel.
Cons: Eventually dented after a month of practice and tournament ball every weekend. Bat cave in on lower half of the sweet spot.
Pros: My son is 8yrs old and has been using this bat since the summer. He old bat was a Easton Mako, he seemed to never get the drive off of his Mako. This Marucci has been a pleasant surprise. My son is not a bulky kid, he is actually small framed. But he is able to rip the ball with this bat. I watch him in batting practice with his coach and see a big difference with the way the ball travels off the bat now vs how it did with the Mako. I highly recommend this bat. The coach who is a former pro seems to be impressed with the bat as well after taking a few swings with it. The Marucci has been very impressive so far.
Cons: None yet.
Pros: My son is 11, He has been using the Hex Alloy bat this fall and absolutley loves it. The pop in which the the ball come's off the bat is amazing. All the other players on his team is using it and they like as well. The bat is so well balance that it helps keep him balanced while swinging. Highly recamend this bat to all ages.
Pros: Just got this bat this past weekend for my son who plays 10U travel ball. We went up in size from a 28/18 to a 29/19 but since the bat is so balanced he didn't really seem to notice the change. The bat has a lot of pop and a big sweet spot. First time swinging it he drove a outside pitch opposite field to the fence for a double. Oh, one of the teams we played had probably five or six of their players swinging the same bat.
Pros: Great pop right out of the wrapper. My son has a lot of confidence hitting this bat and the old school ping and he is hitting harder/longer than he did with his previous Easton composite bat. Other Kids are already asking to use it and how to get one themselves.
Pros: Pop out of the box, feel, balance
Cons: My 11 year old son had this bat for 2 1/2 months. It didn't even see game use. Had great pop out of the box and gave him added distance over other alloy bats. Only used for training 2-3 times a week in warm weather and indoor facility. It got a 2 inch crack on the sweet spot. This was a replacement for the Elite, which he dented badly after 3 months of use. I'm done buying Marucci.
Pros: Awesome sweet spot! my 12 son hits it to the outfield every time with this bat!!! Best bat we have bought since the Cat5. He lives the feel if the bat.
Pros: Great pop and ball travels far.
Cons: Bat returned to Marrucci and cracked again in 2 months. If your boy swings hard and hits a lot of BP, the bat will not last.
Pros: lots of pop great sound and good looking
Cons: will not bye or recommend this bat dented over one weekend replaced with bigger size and dented it again 2 tournaments latter my son is 11 and weighs 82 did not do that with Easton bat
Pros: Lots of pop.
Cons: Bat looks like a golf ball. Dents very easily. It looks as if every hit left a dent.
Pros: My 8 year old son loves the 27 17. We received this bat as a warranty replacement for the Cat 6 that dented after 11 months of heavy use! We have a hitting station in our garage and he's taken this to the cages three times. He loves it. The bat is well balanced and gets through the zone quick. The pop off this bat is ridiculous! He likes it better than the Cat 6 and it is hotter in my opinion. He took it to the field last week and is absolutely roping the ball!
Pros: My son used the Easton S3 '13-'15 models the last three seasons with great success. He's a line drive/power hitter that prefers one piece alloy over composite. The '16 Marucci Hex Alloy is very similar in performance and has held up well through many batting sessions so far. It's by far the most popular "hot" bat in the Houston area...seems like every team has a few in their lineups. The "ping" off the bat is a head turner!!!
Cons: Grips ok, but replaced with Lizard skin.
Pros: lots of pop right out the wrapper. -10 drop makes it easy to swing.
Cons: none so far
Pros: I can't honestly rate the durability because the bat just arrived today but I have to or the site won't take my review. Our first time out I was diving for cover on the pitchers mound and watching my son send balls into the outfield or rip burning grounders. This bat is the real deal. One of our baseballs is now completely misshapen. This bat could add some serious fun to our season.
Cons: None that I can see, hope the bat holds up over time.
Pros: Well balanced, lots of pop, still looks fairly new with the 500 plus baseballs it's attacked.
Pros: Bat has a Long sweet spot, good grip.
Cons: My son (9) dented this bat with in our first bucket of leather balls. It has Good Not Amazing pop. For a Bat that cost this much and is Alloy I expected a lot more.
Pros: Ball really pops off the bat
Cons: Grip...little big and too much cushion.
Pros: I will agree with other reviewing posts that the ball does have a lot more pop than the Easton S1 my son was using. It also has that distinctive sound that turns heads. The weight is balanced, but odd. The bat just cracked, but Marucci warranty has already contacted me about getting it back to them for replacement.
Cons: After 8 months of use my son literally opened up a 4 inch crack right in the sweet spot. He's not a power hitter and he doesn't share the bat with the team so this is all one kid use. We made sure that he didn't use it during cold weather and it was stored inside to eliminate environmental fatigue.
Pros: Great pop out of the box, balanced feel, good customer service
Cons: Absolutely no durability! My 12 year old has destroyed two of these bats. First one was a replacement for an Elite, which dented in a half season's use. The first Hex cracked within 2 months of use. Good customer service sent us a second one, which was an exception to their policy. We took it out of the box last weekend, and it had two huge dents within the first 20 swings. All hitting done in warm weather/indoor facilities with real baseballs. If your kid swings hard and has some power, avoid this bat! The pop and feel of this bat are great out of the box, but I will not be buying any more Marucci bats.
Pros: This bat feels great when i hold it and I can crush the ball while using it.
Cons: Awesome bat, everyone should try it.
Pros: My 8yr old son hit 4 homers at his first tournament using this bat. Proud dad!! Loud pop!! Confidence builder! Teamate has one and got himself a homer also. You get what you pay for.
Cons: May need ear plugs at indoor batting cage.
Cons: dents easily. no pop at all. DO NOT BUY
Pros: I play 7u AA comp and this bat has worked very well. It has good balance with a comfortable grip. The Hex 6 has awesome pop! I hit the ball hard and still no dents.
Cons: Pop runs out slowly.....but takes a while
Pros: I coach a 10u team, and help out with a 12u team. Both groups have had amazing success with this bat. I have never left a bat review before, but this has been absolutely incredible. The pop and the durability have been terrific. We are careful with the bat - don't let it get too cold. And it's held up great so far, about 15 games into the season.
Cons: None so far, through 15 games.
Pros: good balance, feel, grip is nice. son enjoys over easton S3
Cons: handle base is plastic. not sure how long that will last with an agressive 9 yr old
Pros: my 7 year olds loves this bat. very durable and tons of pop. have 4 on the team now
Pros: My son plays 9u ball and this is his first 2 3/4 bat. I purposely made him learn to swing on a 2 1/4 so he was not relying on a big sweet spot. When he used this for the first time with BP the ball jumped off the bat. The whole team, including myself was pretty amazed! Highly Recommended. We will see about durability. My son is not a hard swinger, but has very sound mechanics. (Side note: this bat has so much pop I was pitching from the mount to him and he hit a liner right back at me. I had no time to react and the ball hit my wrist. I was impressed with the hit, mad I got hammered by a ball. I hope that this doesn't happen in a game and he hits a pitcher....)
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Replaced a Combat with my older son (11U major) bat with this one. It's dynamite. I'm not sure I believe the research that says composite has more pop. This bat has such good sound the feedback is awesome.
Cons: Haven't found one.
Pros: ton of pop, good balanced swing, awesome sound, bought the 29/19 for my 9u son, went deep for his first time last weekend
Pros: Awesome sound when making contact and flys off the bat.
Cons: Bat has a little vibration.
Pros: My son loves the pop off of this bat. The pop and sound is noticeable. The barrel size for this bat is great. A very large sweet spot. I have not heard of one complaint from my son regarding vibration.
Cons: It takes a while to get used to the balance of the bat coming from a Demarini CF7. The tape used for the grip is a bit too thick but this is a user preference.
Pros: This is the best bat ever used
Cons: Tons of pop
Pros: There are none.........
Cons: This bat is terrible, My 12 year old hit with it in two games and it already has dents in the bat for the price it's a rip off. It's a shame that these bat company's charge so much for there bats most of them are junk...............
Pros: Awesome bat the entire team uses it!
Pros: good pop feels great to hit
Pros: great pop and feel. looks great. most of the team uses it now.
Pros: Great!!!!!! bat right out of the box. my 7 year old son loves it!!! great pop as well. Not to forget great price !!!!! money well spent!!!
Cons: Cant even think of 1?
Pros: gives him more confidence aft the plate from the results he had righr out of the wrapper!
Cons: from a parents perspective the annoying load ping it creates from contact. i am a composite gut lol
Pros: My 9 year old loves his new bat. The ball seems to jump off this bat. Good color. Weight is good.
Cons: none yet
Pros: Great pop and sound, feels good too. My son prefers this bat over all others. I got him a $300 composite bat and he still grabs this one instead!
Cons: Have not had it very long, durability seems good but tile will only tell. I'm worried about denting but as of now it seems good. So no cons as of now!
Pros: amazing pop right put of the box. this bat has given my son a great deal of confidence. great bat.
Cons: everybody on the team wants to use it. lol
Pros: My 9 year old is using this bat in travel ball and right now is the leading hitter on the team. It has great pop and feel. He loves it. I am impressed and glad I bought it.

Pros: i bought this bat when it first came out. it changed my game around completely. i now play on a travel team. it has perfect pop, itâ€™s extremly hot, the bat feels so lite it feels like you are swinging nothing. my friend ditched his cat7 to use this bat
Pros: Over all was a great bat nice pop my son loves it It was our 2nd bat You can't go wrong with Mariucci
Cons: It dented after 4 months of travel ball bat size 27in/17oz -10 Just waiting on the new one to come in

Got a question about the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
Trying to decide between this bat and the Marucci CAT 7 or any other recommendations. My son is 5'4" and weighs more than 180 lbs. Has been swinging a drop 10 but time to move to a drop 9 or drop 8. Last night in a game he hit a Louisville Slugger 916 drop 10 240' effortlessly. Trying to find the right bat for him after he cracked an aluminum bat recently.
I would recommend a 32" bat based off the information you've provided. I typically recommend swinging a -10 in 6th grade, a -8 in 7th grade, and a -5 in 8th grade. However, this can vary based off player strength. The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR features a two-piece design and would be more similar to the Slugger 916 than the one-piece design of the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC7X10.
What does enhanced variable wall thickness mean? And how does this bat's pop compare to the new Easton Beast bat?
The exact way the technology works is not information that DeMarini provides us, so I could contact them directly if you wanted more information about that. The way I interpret it is that is simply helps enhance the size of the sweet spot. The pop on this bat should be very similar to the Easton Beast models for 2018.
I noticed this DeMarini bat does not have an end cap sticker on the picture. Does it need an end cap sticker to be certified to play or is this bat legal as is?
This bat will be legal for leagues requiring the USSSA certification stamp.
Can I use it for 13-U baseball? Is the 32â€/23 oz size available?
If your league is permitting use of USSSA 1.15 rated bats, then yes, this 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVBR) would be permitted for use. At the time of your question, the 32"/23 oz size of this bat is available for purchase.
Can my son use this bat for 13U for Babe Ruth?
Unfortunately, the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR is not approved for Babe Ruth play. However, you could try the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTDXUD2 which is approved for Babe Ruth play.
Will this bat have all the approvals and stamps necessary to play 12-U Spring & Fall 2018?
This 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVBR) will feature USSSA 1.15 certification. If you are playing in a league that is requiring the new USA Baseball Bat Stamp for 2018, this bat will not be permitted for use.
My son is 12 and half years old, 5' and 97 lbs. Should he get a -10 or a -9? How does this bat compare to the 2017 Easton S3 (2 3/4" barrel)?
Based upon your player's height and weight, our general recommendation would be to get a 30" length bat. I would suggest going with the heavier -9 size of bat so that he can progress to heavier swinging bats and be ready for the -3 BBCOR bats when he gets to high school. This 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVBR) will be different than the S3 (2 3/4") bat as this bat is a hybrid (alloy barrel and composite handle) with a -9 length-to-weight ratio and a 2 5/8" barrel. The S3 is all-alloy with a -10 length-to-weight ratio and 2 3/4" barrel diameter.
Is this bat the equivalent to the Voodoo Overlord?
The two bats are very comparable. They both have an alloy barrel, and an advanced end cap to help with the balance of the bat. The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVBR) is a very comparable bat and will perform very similar to the Overlord.
My 11 yr old used the Omaha and it only lasted a couple months before denting started. (1) Would this bat be any more durable than a 2016 Louisville Omaha 516? (2) I would prefer alloy, but do the higher priced composite bats last longer?
(1) If the Omaha bat being swung in the past had a 2 3/4" barrel diameter, I do think that this 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVBR) has slightly more potential for durability due to the smaller 2 5/8" barrel diameter. It is my observation that 2 5/8" barrel diameters hold up slightly better. (2) I do not think that you need pay for the more expensive composite bats as the potential for performance and durability is the same between aluminum and composite barreled bats.
What's the difference between the Voodoo One and the Voodoo balanced?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR features a two piece hybrid balanced design, whereas the DeMarini Voodoo One is a one piece alloy bat.
Does this bat have the approved USA baseball stamp needed for the new bat rules in 2018?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR does not feature the USABat stamp. The new bats featuring the USABat stamp will not hit the market until sometime in September.
How does this compare to the Voodoo Raw?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR is going to be more balanced than the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo RAW Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDR and features the upgraded X14 alloy which will give you more pop.
Does this bat have a break in period?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR does not require a break in period as the barrel is an alloy barrel.
Does this bat have a break-in period?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR features an alloy barrel and it is does not require a break-in period. It is hot right out of the wrapper.
My 10 yr old is about 5'1" and 115 pounds. I'm looking for the best end loaded (for power hitters) bat. What would you suggest? Thank you
The selection of end loaded bats for youth players is a bit more limited, but I would look at the Mako XL or the Mako Beast XL bats for good end loaded options for him. This Voodoo is a balanced model.
My son loves his Vexxum bat. Yesterday at practice it cracked and we are left searching for a new bat. Is this bat comparable? Better?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR is going to be very similar to the previous DeMarini Vexxum models. Both of these bats are two-piece hybrid designs with balanced swing weights, alloy barrels and composite handles. The difference between the two is the alloy being used with the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBR using a new alloy (X14) compared to the old alloy, X12, that the Vexxum used.
My son has been using an old Exogrid bat and loves it. What do you recommend that would be similar?
Unfortunately, there currently is not really a bat out there that will feature the all-alloy build with composite inserts in the handle like the Exogrid. This 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVBR) will be a two-piece bay that features a composite handle and an alloy barrel design to it.
What's the reasoning for not having this in a -10? Does it truly swing that much lighter?
This bat is offered in a -10, however it has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. It is the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBZ. The 2017 Voodoo models for senior league are offered in a balanced swing weight, as opposed to an end-loaded swing weight like in past years. Balanced bats are noticeably easier to swing than end-loaded models.
I have read that this 2017 Voodoo (DXVBR) is more balanced than previous year Voodoos. Is DeMarini getting away from end-weighting? How does the 2017 Voodoo model compare to the 2016 RAW and the 2015 OVERLORD?
This 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVBR) will have a balanced swing feel to it. For their Senior League/Youth Big Barrel models, all the DeMarini Voodoo bats will be balanced in their swing weighting. This Voodoo (DXVBR) will feature the same hybrid design (alloy barrel and composite handle) like the RAW and OVERLORD, but it will be balanced in its swing weight and that will be the biggest difference when compared to the end-loaded RAW and OVERLORD.
Got a question about the Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
Do they make a 28-18? All I see are 27-17.
The Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 was made in a 28/18 but we have sold out of all sizes minus the 27/17. Since this bat is a closeout model we will not be able to restock any sizes.
How would this bat compare to the Marucci F5?
The main differences between the Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 and the F5 are that the Hex Alloy offers a sting free comfort knob to reduce sting on contact while the F5 will offer a multi-wall construction to expand the sweet spot and improve the overall durability.
I have a young 9 year old who is swinging a 28/18 with solid contact, however I worry a bit about bat speed, he is 52 inches/68 lbs. Does he need to stay where he is, or could he benefit from the Hex 27/17?
Per your son's height and weight, we would recommend using the Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 in a 28 inch model. If you feel his bat speed would be slowed down considerably using a 28 inch model then there is certainly nothing wrong with going down one inch and one ounce.
How does this bat compare to the 2018 Cat 7?
This Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) is similar to the 2018 Marucci CAT 7 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC7X10) in its basic design. Both bats are one-piece, all-alloy bats. However, the Cat 7 will feature advanced alloy material, a larger sweet spot and an anti-vibration knob.
Since this is an older model bat, and I have read the reviews about cracking and dents, does this bat still have a warranty on it?
Yes, these bats purchased new will still have the 12 month warranty through Marucci.
Will this bat be legal with the new USA baseball bat rule in most leagues?
The Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is a USSSA certified bat. You will want to look for bats with the USA Baseball Stamp if you are playing in AABC, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, Dixie Youth, Little League, & Pony.
Is it made at 29 in length 17 oz?
The Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is a -10 length to weight ratio bat. Thus any 29 inch model would be 19 ounces.
What's the difference between this bat and the 2018 Marucci Hex Alloy 2?
The main difference between this Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) and the 2018 Marucci Hex Alloy 2 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBHA2X10) will be the updated AZ105 Alloy on the Hex Alloy 2 that allows for thinner barrel walls, more performance and better durability.
Can I get this bat in a 29/19?
Unfortunately we only have the 27" and 31" models left for this 2016 bat.
Can I use this bat for Pony league after the new rule for 2018?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) will not be legal for Pony league. The bats must have the USA stamp.
My son is 8 going on 9 and he's playing now in coach pitch but next year will be in kid pitch, so we need a good bat for him.
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is a great bat to consider for a player seeking a bat for kid pitch. This bat will feature a two-piece fully composite design with a balanced swing weight. The two-piece design will help ease the stinging sensation a player feels when not squaring up the ball and the balanced swing weight will make it easier for younger players to handle.
Is this bat durable enough for 9u kid pitch?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 will be durable enough for kid pitch.
I am going into eighth grade baseball and I was wondering if this bat would be good? I am 6 ft tall. 31 inches 21 ounces?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 would be a good bat for you. Although because of your height and age I would suggest going to a -8 or a -5.
What is the difference between the HAY and the HAX?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 has a 2 3-4 inch barrel diameter, whereas the MSBAHAY10 has a 2 5-8 inch barrel diameter.
My son is 10 years old and is 60" and approximately 100 lbs. What is the recommended bat size?
Based on your players height and weight, we suggest a 30" model in the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10.
Is this bat comparable to the 2014 Marucci One?
Yes, the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 would be comparable to the Marucci One. Both bats were a one-piece alloy design. The Marucci Hex does use the new AZ4X alloy.
Do you have any word on this bat's replacement? I see they have taken it down from their website and I can't find anything about what's coming out.
We have not received any word on what may replace the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 at this time.
My 6 yr old son is playing 7U coach pitch and using a Easton Mako Beast 26/14. His league just banned the use of composite bats so his coach recommended the Hex Alloy bat. Do you recommend this bat or a Cat 6 or Cat 7 in 26/16? He will be playing kid pitch in a couple if seasons.
If you wanted to use the bat for more than a couple seasons I would recommend the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) in a 27/17. If you were just planning on getting a bat for the end of coach pitch I would recommend getting the Marucci Cat 7 Junior Big Barrel in the 26/16.
How would this compare to the Easton S3 senior league 2.75 barrel in regards to pop and durability?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is similar to the Easton S3, as both feature the same construction design, one piece alloy.
Did Marucci drop this bat from the 2017 lineup? I can't seem to find a newer version, which is terrifying because this bat is so good!
No, Marucci did make the Hex Alloy for 2017. We have it in a -9 version, the MSBAHAX9.
My kid is 4'2" tall and he weighs about 82 lbs. He's 7 years old. What size should he use?
We would suggest a 28-29" length of bat for someone his size.
My son is 5'3" and a slender 85 lbs. He swings his younger brother's Hex Alloy 29"/19 oz and hammers it. What size would be appropriate for him (I'm thinking 31"/21 oz)?
Based upon your player's height and weight, I think that a 30" length of bat would be good for him. Since he has been using a 29"/19 oz size and been doing well, I don't think you need to move all the way up to the 31"/21 oz size. However, we have this 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) in the 30" and 31" sizes. The 30" would be best for this exact point in time, but the 31" would last the longest for him into the future.
My son has been swinging an Easton MAKO for the past 2 years. He's 5'1" and weighs about 136 lbs. His current bat is a 29"/19 oz size. What size bat should we get?
Based upon your player's height and weight, you could consider moving him to a 31" length bat. I might suggest looking for a bat with a -5 or -8 length-to-weight ratio. This 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) with its -10 length-to-weight ratio might be a little light for him at his size.
What size Hex would you recommend for an 8 yr old, 4'9" 88 lbs? Have been swinging a 2014 Easton XL3 28/19.
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 in a 30 inch 20 ounce model.
I am looking at the 30"/20 for my 10 year old. Do you have another bat you'd recommend comparing to this one?
If you wanted another bat to which you could compare this 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10), I would recommend looking at the 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO516X). Both bats are 2 3/4" barrel, all-aluminum and both receive solid reviews from customers. I think a comparison of the two would be good to check out.
Can you use a 27" 17 oz. bat in kid pitch?
The 27" 17 oz. 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is intended to be used for kid pitch. Since it is a senior league model, it has thicker barrel walls to withstand the pitching speeds of kid pitch.
(1) From my understanding, this can be used in Top Gun travel ball, but can not be used in Little League Recreation ball; is that correct? (2) Also, my son is 9 yrs old and he is 4'7" and 65 pounds. I was thinking about the 29"/19 oz size. Is that what you would recommend?
(1) This 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) features USSSA 1.15 BPF certification and a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. Because of those features, it should be legal in just about all travel ball circuits, but will not be allowed in any division of Little League sanctioned baseball. (2) Based upon your player's height and weight, my general recommendation would be to go with the 29" length option as long as your player can handle the resulting 19 oz weight.
My son is just under 100 lbs and is 5'3" playing 14U this fall/next spring. We need a drop 5 or 3 - makes a lot of contact but doesn't hit for power. Used a 31/19 for most of the season and 31/21 when we faced slower pitching. We need something that is not end loaded. Was looking at this bat or any other bat you suggest. Also, do you think we should consider dropping to a 30" now that the bat is going to be much heavier?
You could definitely drop to a 30" if you feel like it was needed. But I think he will be fine with a 31". I would highly recommend the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10. It is a very balanced bat and will feel light.
When does this bat commonly go on sale?
We can't put a bat on sale until a manufacturer allows us to drop the minimum advertised pricing. Marucci has not yet but there are getting ready to release a bunch of new models, so they may allow us too. Just not sure yet.
What is the difference in the 2015 Hex Alloy and the 2016 Hex Alloy? What size bat would my 10 year old, 56", and 83 pound son need?
Actually, the only Hex Alloy bat that has been released is this 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10). There actually was not a 2015 model of the Hex Alloy. Based upon your player's height and weight, my general suggestion would be a 29" option of this 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10). As long as your player can handle the 19 oz weight of the 29" option of this bat, I would recommend that size option.
Can this bat be used in Little League?
This 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter and will not be allowed for use in any division of Little League because of that diameter.
How does this bat compare to the Anderson Flex for a 12 year old? He is about 5' tall and weighs 95 lbs. Is a 30" or 31", -10 a better size?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 and the Anderson Flex are two very comparable bats. They both feature one-piece alloy designs with balanced swing weights and have similar performances. Based on his height and weight, we suggest a 30" model.
My son is 4'5" and weighs 63 pounds. He's been hitting with the 28" MAKO junior 2 3/4" big barrel, but hasn't gotten nearly as much pop as with his former 28" Easton S3 2 1/4" bat he used last spring. Suggestions?
Based upon your son's height and weight, I would recommend using a 29" 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10.
What size bat do you recommend for my son. He's 4'10" and 75 lbs.
Based on your son's height and weight, I would recommend that he swing a 30" length. That would be a 30" 20 oz. in this particular model of the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10.
If I am correct. a Junior Big Barrel bat has a thinner wall than a Senior League Big Barrel bat. Does this mean a JBB bat will be hotter and have more of a trampoline effect than a SLBB bat? If this stands true, the Marucci CAT 6 JBB will be hotter and have more trampoline effect than the Marucci Hex Alloy SLBB.
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 will have thicker barrel walls than the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6. In essence, the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 would be hotter as it will feature thinner barrel walls compared to the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10. However, the Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: MJBBC6 is designed for coach pitch only leagues as these thinner barrel wall bats will dent very easily and become defective when velocity is over 40 MPH. Also, a Junior Big Barrel bat is designed for younger players who will not be able to generate as much bat speed as high bat speed can also lead to the bat becoming defective in a short amount of time.
My son is 13 years old. Is this bat legal for Pony League play? If so, is the youth version also legal?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is not legal for play in Pony. Pony does not allow the barrel diameter to exceed 2 5/8". The youth 2 1/4" barrel option is legal for play in the Pony division of Pony though.

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is a big barrel bat as it features a 2 3/4 inch barrel diameter.
What is the difference between the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat than the 2016 Marucci Hex Youth Baseball Bat?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 features a 2 3/4" barrel diameter while the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Youth Baseball Bat: MYBHA12 features a 2 1/4" barrel diameter.
Is this bat more end loaded or evenly balanced compared to a Cat 6 or any of the Easton 2 piece bats?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 will feature a balanced swing weight like the Marucci Cat 6 and the Easton two-piece bats that do not feature "XL" in the product heading.
Would this be a good bat for my 10 year old who's playing in the Majors Division of Little League?
If your player is in the Majors Division of Little League, this bat will not be legal as it has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. I would recommend viewing the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Youth Baseball Bat (MYBHA12) which has a legal 2 1/4" barrel diameter.
What would the difference between this bat (MSBAHAX10) and the MSBX1014-R Red bat that would make us decide between the two?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 is going to feature the AZ4X alloy construction; the construction of this bat will be more durable than the AZ3000 alloy in the Marucci ONE Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBX1014-R Red. Other than that, both bats are good bats to consider and are going to perform similarly. Both bats are one-piece alloy designs with balanced swing weights.
What would be a benefit getting the 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter bat instead of 2 3/4"?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 in a 2 3/4 inch barrel would give a player a greater chance of being able to miss hit a ball and still get good distance/feel on the batted ball. The benefit of the 2 5/8 inch barrel would be that this is the barrel size one would have to use in high school and college and also makes players focus more as a poorly hit ball on this barrel size will not be as forgiving as on the 2 3/4 inch barrel.
Would you recommend this bat for my son who plays 12u travel baseball for a AAA team? He's a good line drive and contact hitter but is looking for more power.
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) is a one-piece alloy design and this design would be a good option for a power type hitter as the one-piece allows for a stiffer feel. If you wanted to get the "prototypical" power hitter bat, it would be a one-piece bat (either alloy or composite) with an end-loaded swing weight.
My 7 year old swings a 28 inch 18 ounce Rawlings 5150 with a 2 5/8 inch barrel diameter and I was looking for a new one or switching to a different alloy. We will be sticking with -10 and was wondering if the Marucci would be an upgrade?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) compares well with the 2016 Rawlings 5150 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL5R34). Given their similarities, it would be tough to say if one would be an upgrade over the other as this would be a matter of preference.
Would you recommend this Marucci MSBAHAX10 or the new 2016 RIP IT for my soon to be 10 year old who is 4 foot 6 and weighs 70 pounds? The last two years he used a 28 inch black RIP IT from 2014.
Both the 2016 RIP-IT Element ONE Senior League Big Barrel Baseball Bat (SL10B) and the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) are nice options. They are extremely similar by design, so the preference would come down to which style you prefer.
My son is 55" tall and weighs 56 lbs. He is currently swinging a 27/17. What size do you recommend in the Hex?
Given his height and weight, I would recommend going with the 29" 19 oz. model of the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10.

The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 and the 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAY10 are going to be very similar bats except the MSBAHAX10 features a 2 3/4 in barrel diameter while the MSBAHAY10 features a 2 5/8 in barrel diameter.
How does this bat compare to the 2016 Easton S3 Senior League model?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBAHAX10 and the 2016 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16S310 are both excellent baseball bats. Both bats are going to be a -10 one-piece alloy design with a balanced swing weight and similar price tag.

Will this bat dent with rubber cage balls? Is their a warranty against denting?

Which bat would be better for a 2 or 3 hole hitter who hits for contact but has power. My son is 5 foot 5 and weighs 117 pounds. Would a 31 inch 21 ounce be okay? Also, how does this Marucci Hex bat compare to the Rawlings Prodigy Hybrid with whip technology? The AZX4 alloy vs prodigy alloy?
The 2016 Marucci Hex Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBAHAX10) and the 2016 Rawlings Prodigy Alloy Senior League Baseball Bat (SLRP34) compare extremely closely.
