Pros: I'm a 10 year old kid and I hit it off the wall of a 230 fence
Pros: Player I hit the ball over the fence with this bat nothing is better then this bat
Pros: Looks good. Nice grip and graphics.
Cons: This bat has no pop at all. Got this for my 11 year old son and am very disappointed. Maybe we got a lemon, since the ball sounds like it is coming off a composite bat when my son hits the ball. Very disappointed.
Pros: lots of pop drives ball amazing beautiful feel
Pros: My 10 year old son added a lot of pop from upgrading from an inexpensive clearance bat. The weight has great distribution and overall is a really nice bat.
Cons: Just opinion, but my son doesn't like the grip, too thin, and it has a large sweet spot, but if you don't hit right on it, a good amount of vibration.
Pros: Good pop with this bat for 12U son. Hit three Homers in three tournaments played, but bat developed a flat spot and small dents. Sent back after three tournaments.
Cons: vibration, denting
Pros: My son loves that bat. He has more power than with his previous bat. The vibration is very low and overall, he hits well with this bat. The bat is not composite, but still has great pop.
Cons: none as of now, he has played about 20 games with it.
Pros: Bought my 11 year old son this bat for comp ball last season. great balance and feel, kid played roughly 50 games and practiced with it 3-4 times a week for 8 months. He is still using it today!
Cons: need to buy a few more for next season
Pros: Great feel and pop in -10. I need two bats because I play in two leagues that require 2 3/4" and 2 5/8" barrels-so I'll probably get the 2 5/8" for when I need it. Performance is great and the ball feels good coming off. Really balanced.
Cons: The custom lizard skin grip is nice, but I usually prefer athletic tape
Pros: Good pop and balance.
Cons: Have sent 2 in for warrantee replacement due to denting. I'd suggest for 10u and younger. Only used in games and live batting cages with baseballs with 12u player.
Pros: This bat is durable and it has the pop we were looking for. This is the bat everybody on the team wants to use!!
Cons: I haven't found any cons.
Pros: Has a lot of pop coming off the bat, my 10 yr. old loves this bat, not to mention he follows the college world series and that's all he see's them using. He's been swinging a 28 (-10) but know I have just upgraded him to a 29 (-10)
Cons: The cons are, I just sent the 28 inch back in because of dents, my son is ten and plays 11u major, I don't know if it's because he is swinging the 28 inch and the 29 inch may be a little stronger so we are trying that in terms of longevity.
Pros: It has a very big sweet spot, no sting what so ever,and it hits line drives even when it is not good contact,it is just the right amount of weight for you to be able to swing fast but still heavy enough to drive it over the outfielders heads,very good durability.
Cons: None yet
Pros: This has been the best bat for me (13u travel ball) that i have ever used. this bat has extreme pop and i would recommend this bat before any other to any ball player.
Cons: Ive heard it gets dented easily from some people but i havent had that problem through my forst 5 months with it. only thing the grip has got ripped up and i meed to get a new lizard skin but nothing affecting the performance.
Pros: My sons had 49home runs this year with the bat
Pros: Good balance. Sold feel. No sting. Beautiful looking bat. My son has had great results. Two over the fence home runs in 3 games.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: When it was working correctly, the bat had a nice pop to it. My son really liked it until the dents and dead spots happened and the handle fell off.
Cons: We've sent this bat back 3 times for warranty issues. It dents very easily. One bat dented on the first day of use. When it does dent, the "sweet spot" is considerably altered. You have to send it back to Louisville and it takes approximately a month to get a different bat. Â The experience with their customer service is very frustrating.Â
Pros: My son plays 10u and really likes this bat. It has great pop, large sweet spot and very minimal vibration. He was hitting singles with his old bat, and we could tell the ball exit speed was an issue, but not with this bat. He is now hitting over the fence, ground rule doubles, triples, etc. This is really an outstanding bat.
Cons: There are a lot of quality comments about the bat, specifically dents. We have not had an issue with dents however, we use a sleeve for batting cages and/or we use an old bat. The issue we had is that the knob broke off after his 2nd game. It was a straight break at the neck, like it was a weak spot and possibly just a fluke. Justbats replaced this for us and so far so good with the 2nd go round. I will post again if there are any more issues. I still would recommend the bat.
Pros: great pop. teammates started using it after homeruns were hit with it.
Cons: none yet.
Pros: Good Pop
Cons: Terrible Durability. Dented in multiple spots after less than 1/2 of a season of kid pitch.
Pros: looks nice
Cons: bat dented twice. the 2nd time it dented,it had less than 10 hits.
Pros: NONE - My 10 yr old couldn't use it long enough to have an opinion
Cons: My son plays very competitive baseball and this bat broke in the first 4 games used. (first tournament) Louisville Slugger did not stand behind the bat!! Bad quality.
Pros: Son is playing 8u and loved the bat once it arrived.
Cons: The knob flew off the bat in less than 20 swings. In all of my life, I have never seen a knob disconnect from a bat. He hit a ball off the barrel and and the KNOB flew off. How could this happen?
Pros: The price is right for a young 8U player playing in competition. My son loved the way it was weighted. Said he was able to swing it well. It does have great pop when he got ahold of the ball.
Cons: The paint chips very very quickly. After half of a season and a few thousand balls in a cage it looks like he needs a new bat. Although I know its just the paint he doesnt get that they are not cracks. If he hit the ball wrong it did vibrate a lot. which in my opionion im fine with. They need to know when theyve made a mistake.

How does this bat compare to the 2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord? That is my son"s favorite all time bat and we are looking for its twin. Would buy a used Overlord, but they are hard to find.
The closest bat DeMarini has right now for a youth player to the Overlord would be the DeMarini Voodoo, not the Voodoo One. The Voodoo One is a one-piece, all alloy design, whereas the Voodoo is a two-piece, hybrid design with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. This is a similar design to the Overlord, with the only difference being the Voodoo is a balanced model while the Overlord was an end-loaded model.
Is this bat legal for our 12 year old league?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo One Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVOZ is legal for USSSA baseball. However, if your league is requiring a USA stamp (ie. Little League, Pony, Babe Ruth, etc.) then this will not be allowed for use.
Is this bat legal for the 13 - 14 year old Senior Division of Little League?
No, unfortunately the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo One Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVOZ is not legal for the Senior Division of Little League. The 2 3/4" barrel diameter is too big and it is not BBCOR certified, which is required for all bats in the Senior Division.
How much breaking in will this bat need? Does it have a pretty liberal sweet spot?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo One Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVOZ features an alloy barrel and thus does not require a break in period. As for the sweet spot, it will be comparable to other bats on the market.
Is this the replacement for the 2015 Demarini Voodo DXVDZ?
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVBZ is a one-piece alloy bat.

Does Louisville Slugger make a 33 inch drop 5?
We will not have the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X or any Louisville Slugger models in that size. Typically if a hitter is able to swing that size we recommend to try the BBCOR models out.
Does it come in 2 1/4"?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X dose not come in a 2 1/4" size.
My son is 4"1' and about 56 lbs; small for a 10 year old. Would you recommend the 26/16 or the 27/17 for him? He"s been using the CAT 6 in a 26/16 and has been doing well with it. But we are looking for a great kid pitch league bat. Heard great reviews about the Omaha 517, any others you would recommend?
Based on your player's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X in a 28 inch model. If you wanted to go with something smaller you could certainly do so if you feel this would be better for your player. As for the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X, this is a one-piece all alloy model featuring a balanced swing weight. It has been a well reviewed bat and would be a top choice for one seeking a one-piece alloy model.
Is it a USSSA bat?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) is a USSSA approved bat.
Which bat has the better pop out of the Omaha 517 and CAT 7?
Neither the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X nor the Cat 7 would have more pop than the other since they are very similar bats, each of one piece alloy construction with balanced swing weights.
Is this a Composite or Aluminum bat?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) is a one-piece all alloy design.
Can you use this with the new USA Baseball standards?

We have tried 28"/18 oz bats and my player says he needs something bigger. Will this bat be good for a 10 year old?
If your player can handle the larger 29"/19 oz size of the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X), I would certainly make a recommendation of getting that bat for him. This bat gets excellent reviews from JustBats customers.
Is this good for an 11 year old?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) is a great option for an 11 year old.
Is this for a 9 year old? It says senior so unsure.
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X is a bat that can be used by a player up to the age of 11. Since this bat has a 2 3/4" barrel diameter it should hold up well for the younger players but will certainly break down quicker for players who are older than 11.
Is it a composite bat?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) is not a composite bat, it features a one piece aluminum design.
My son is almost 15. We are interested in this bat, but keep seeing comments about it denting. Is there an issue with that?
This 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat (SLO517X) would display denting for a player that is almost 15 years old. You guys will want to view the 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 BBCOR Baseball Bat (BBO5173) as he is at high school age. That BBCOR bat will display better durability for a player your age.
What's the difference between the 517 and 516?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X features a newer ST 7U1+ alloy where the 516 features 7U1 alloy. This new alloy on the 517 provides a bigger sweet spot and a stiffer feel at contact.
What would you recommend me buying, the 2016 Easton S3, or this bat?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X and the 2016 Easton S3 are very similar bats, so it would be hard to say one is better than the other. It would ultimately come down to your personal preference.
Is this model ready to go or does it require a break in?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X is an aluminum bat, so there is no break in required.
How would you compare this to the Cat 7 -8?
Both bats are going to perform very well, and both are one-piece, all alloy bats.
What is the difference between this bat and the 2016 version? Does this bat have the 40% longer barrel like the 2016 model?
The 2017 Louisville Slugger Omaha 517 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO517X will use an improved version of the 7U1 alloy and this would be the only difference (minus colorway) compared to the 2016 Louisville Slugger Omaha 516 Senior League Baseball Bat: SLO516X.

Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport. In many ways, the storied 130+ year history of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat began in the talented hands of 17-year-old John A. "Bud" Hillerich. Back in the 1880s, Bud was working at his father's woodworking shop in Louisville, Kentucky. Legend has it that Bud, a lover of baseball and a player himself, slipped away from work one afternoon in 1884 to watch Louisville's major league team, the Louisville Eclipse. Bud was in the stands as the team's star, P.... read more
