Cons: no cons
Pros: Balanced Swing Amazing Pop Seems to be quite durable great look and feel
Cons: non yet
Pros: Buy it
Cons: Buy it
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!
Pros: Hot out the wrapper (really)! After several composite bat replacement, we were very disappointed with the combat -10 performance. The Voodoo is my son favorite bat, for right now.
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: The handle feels good and has little to no vibration
Cons: Has a very small sweet spot. Bought the new version because we have the old version and my son loves it. This one does not come close to our old bat.
Pros: Very balanced. Loud pop. Looks great.
Cons: The handle is pretty thin and my son is complaining of some sting in his hands. Other than that, no complaints. Overall, a great bat!
Pros: got this this week. my 10 year old broke it in with 9 bombs over 190+. He said he likes the pop better than the Marucci and the zen. that his opinion.
Cons: none yet
Pros: This bat is extremely hot!
Cons: Absolutely none
Pros: Seems to have a lot of pop. Still breaking it in.
Cons: Thin handle but we put a lizard skin right over the tape it cam with for a nice thick grip.
Pros: great balance and the best pop i seen in a youth bat! buy it try it and im sure you will agree
Pros: my son has hit with a Marucci hex, DiMarini Zen, and the Louisville 917 composite bats, and rather an easton S3 allow all day over those bats. The S3 has great pop, great price, great sound off the bat, great balance, excellent bat! According to my 10 year old
Cons: like every alloy bat it dents easily
Pros: Great feel..hard hitting..balls scream off the bat. Confidence maker. You will hit home runs. Makes you buy the next size up. My son was real close to hitting the fence until he got this bat. 16 home runs between two fall seasons and a spring season. Not really sure if itâ€™s the bat or just his abilities or the confidence of having it in his hands. Plus no dents like some other reviews stated before. He hits hard and uses it even on pitching machines. No issues out of this bat at all.
Pros: Everything you want in a bat and more
Cons: Horrible vibration Small sweet spot
Cons: Bought Easton S3 30 inch 20 ounce to primarily use as a workhorse in the batting cage and save the composite MAKO for games. The S3 has a very small sweet spot. That's minor compared to the vibration. The handle is very thin and the grip is very thin. First couple hits my son almost cried because of the vibration. I decided to take some cuts with the bat to show my son that it's just him, but the first couple hits, I dropped the bat and my hands stung like crazy. This bat vibrates a ridiculous amount that it really hurts. I then bought a lizard skin grip for about $7 and wrapped it right over the existing grip, and that seemed to give a little padding to reduce the vibration, but it still vibrates slightly. Would return the bat if I could. Looking to just eat the money I paid for it and buy something else with less or no vibration. My older son has an Omaha 517 that he uses in the cage and there is little to no vibration. I recommend buying that bat if you're looking for a cheap alloy.
Pros: Great for power hitters my 11 year old son hit 15 home runs in 35 games with this bat. 1st at bat with it out of the park 250ft. He loves it so much we got a 2nd one for his 2018 season. The Ball Jumps off of this Bat.
Cons: There is no cons we have had no issues with this bat.
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 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
My son is 9, 4'7'and a solid 98lbs, what would be a good bat size him?
Given your player's specifications, I would recommend a 30" bat version of this 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310.
My son is 4'8 and is a solid 103 lbs. He just turned 10 and plays all stars this summer. He has been swinging a 30/20 Beast 2 3/4 barrel well but we like the S3. Based on his size do you recommend the 30/20 S3 or the 29/19?
Based on your player's specifications, as well as bat history, I would recommend the 30" 20oz. size of the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310.
Is this bat BBCOR or USA certified?
The 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 does not feature a BBCOR or USA stamp. It is USSSA certified.
My son is 11, 5'3" and 143 lbs. With his wingspan, diagrams say that he should have a 32" but we are being told that he should not use over 21oz. Thoughts? Advice?
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 31" length. At his age, players typically use a -10, so the 31" 21 ounce 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 should be a good fit.
My son is 10 yrs old, weighs 170-172 lbs and is 5â€™ 5â€ tall. Would the 29â€ -10 bat be the right fit for him? He is a tall and solid kid.
Based on your player's height and weight, I would recommend either a 32" or a 33" bat. If this is a significant jump from your player's previous bat, I might suggest sticking with the shorter 32" size this season. The longest option available for the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) would be the 32"/22 oz size. If you wanted to go with a 33" bat, you would need to move up to a drop 5 length to weight ratio. That weight might be too heavy for a 10 year old.
Is this a USSSA bat?
Yes, this 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 is a USSSA approved bat.
I have tall slender 12 year old, his 26 oz is too heavy. Would this be proper?
This bat would certainly work, although we generally recommend a -8 drop bat for a 12 year old to help them transition to BBCOR in a few years.
Is it possible to just get the Mako -10 2 5/8?
Unfortunately we do not have anymore of the Easton MAKO -10 models with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. We do however have the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 in stock.
I have an 11 year old that is 5 foot 1 inches and weighs 120 lbs. Would this bat be a good fit?
Yes, it would. Based on his height and weight we would recommend a 31"/21 ounce 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310.
I have read many reviews online and I have seen repeated posts about this bat denting very easily. Can you give me any insight into this?
Just like all aluminum alloy bats, the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 is going to be susceptible to potential denting. This is much like how composite bats are going to be prone to cracking. The S3 utilizes Hyperlite Matrix Alloy which is actually used to provide increased durability for the barrel of the bat.
What's the difference between the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) and the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310B)?
This 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) has a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and differs from the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310B) which has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter. besides that difference, everything else on the bats will be the same.
My son is almost 12 and weighs about 80 pounds. He has been using the Worth Prodigy 28/18 but I think that is too small now. Would you recommend a 29 or 30? He is also on the shorter side.
To determine the best size to get the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 in we use an algorithm that incorporates the player's height and weight. If you let us know the height of your player we would be more than happy to let you know the proper length to select.
Is this bat still legal to use with the new bat rules?
If your league is requiring the new USA certification, then the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 would not be legal. It is USSSA certified and not USA certified.
My 11 year old is about 90 lbs and has been using a Marucci 29 inch. Would this bat with a 30 inch 20 ounce be recommended?
A 30'' 20 oz would be a great fit in the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 for your son.
My son is 49 inches tall and weighs about 50 lbs. Is this a good bat for him? If so, should I get him the 28 inch or 29 inch bat?
This 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) would be a solid bat for your player. Based on his height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this bat in the 28" length as long as he can handle the 18 oz weight.
My son just turned 10 years old. He is 5' tall and 75 lbs. Right now, he has an Easton S2 2 1/4 barrel bat (30"/17 oz). What size do you think would be good for a 2 5/8" barrel bat?
Based upon your player's height and weight, my general length suggestion for a 2 5/8" barrel diameter bat would be the same 30" length your player is using currently. If you feel that your player is ready for the 30"/20 oz size of bat, I would recommend this 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) very highly in the 30"/20 oz size.
Looking to find correct bat size for 9 yr old. He likes the Easton S3. He is 4'8" tall and weighs approx 85-90 lbs. He plays on a travel ball team and is currently using a DeMarini Voodoo RAW 29/19. He was having trouble getting through the zone and his hitting was on and off. When his coach changed his bat and he started using an Easton 2015 S2 28/18 his hitting improved 100%. What would you suggest as bat size? Should we stay with 28/18 or 29/19 Easton S3? New season is starting so don't want a bat that is the wrong size.
Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend the 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 in a 29 inch model. Some of the issue he may have been having with the DeMarini Voodoo RAW is that this bat is end-loaded. This can cause the top hand to drop and thus cause a longer swing. If he feels more comfortable with a 28/18 then we would recommend staying with this size or asking his coach if a 29/19 balanced bat will be okay to use.
(1) Any sales for this bat? (2) Can this be used in 13 year old division for Babe Ruth? (3) Out of all bats, which bat would you choose for a 13 year old Babe Ruth player (2-5/8" barrel)?
(1) For the current time being we will not have any sales going to offer an additional amount off the listed price of this 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310). (2) This 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat (SL17S310) will not be allowed within the 13-15 year old division of Babe Ruth because it does not feature BBCOR certification [I might recommend double-checking the rules as I could be wrong on my interpretation]. (3) If you wanted a BBCOR bat to consider, I would recommend the 2017 Easton Z-CORE Speed BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB17ZS).
I know bats are generally off an ounce or 2. How does a 29 x 19 measure up in weight?
The 2017 Easton S3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17S310 actually comes in pretty close to the listed weight, within .2 ounces over or under.
