Cons: the vibration is the only flaw
Bat Pack Anderson Flex and DeMarini Voodoo -10 Senior League Baseball Bats: SL17FLEXXL and DXVDX
* Click on each bat in the bat pack to get individual features for that bat
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: great pop out the wrapper, my son has been hitting rods since we got him this bat
Cons: non so far
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: feels good has great grip Maybe just not the right bat for my son
Cons: No pop at all
Pros: if you dont want to spend a lot of money this is bat for you
Pros: good pop once the bat broke in. you must break every bat in. 100-200 pitches. every since broke my son been hitting to the gate and even a couple home runs.
Cons: not so far
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: My 7 year old loves this bat and he has not complained at all. I love the smack sound when knocks one to the fence.Great bat!!!
Cons: no cons
Pros: perfect for my kid
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: My son loved this bat. Has great pop!
Cons: Had dents all over and lost it's pop after just one season. Aluminum seemed to be very thin.
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.

When hitting, will this bat have the sound of a CAT 7 alloy bat?
The 2017 Anderson Flex -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL17FLEXXL is a one-piece alloy bat much like the Marucci CAT 7. Both bats will make the traditional "ping" sound on impact but whether or not one feels they have similar sound would be one of personal opinion.

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.
Will this bat be able to handle a machine pitching at 35 - 40 mph?
Yes, this 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVDX) should be able to withstand machine pitch velocities of 35 -40 mph.
My son is 5 years old, he's about to begin fall ball. I'm looking to get a new bat for this season. I'm just not sure which bat to get. He stands in at 3ft 5in. He weighs 40lbs.
For the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX I would recommend a 26 inch model.
My son just turned 8. He weighs 50 pounds and 3'11". What size bat do you recommend?
Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX in a 27 inch model.
Is this bat USA baseball approved for the 2018 Little League season? If not what bat is?
The 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX is not USA approved for the 2018 season. Currently, there aren't any bats out that are legal for the 2018 USA bat rule change. Those bats will be available in the fall of this year.
What size do you recommend for a 10 yr old who is 69 lbs and about 48 inches tall?
For a player of that height and weight, we would recommend getting the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX in a 27 inch model.
What size bat do you recommend for a 6 yr old that weights about 50 lbs?
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.
Is this bat approved for Dixie youth baseball?
The 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX is approved for Dixie youth levels up to Pre-Majors. Once in Pre-Majors a player will have to use a BBCOR 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.
Would this bat come with the USSSA stamp?
Yes, the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVDX has the USSSA stamp on the barrel.
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.
Is this approved for Little League, 7-U baseball?
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. Here is a Voodoo model that would be legal for use in the Minor Division: 2016 DeMarini Voodoo RAW Youth Baseball Bat (DXVDL).
Is this bat approved for Little League or do you have any 25 in bats that are approved for Little League that are not tee ball bats?
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.
Is this bat approved for Pony Baseball? I noticed it does not say approved for Pony.
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.

Taking his expertise and credibility to his self-named company, DeMarini made headlines in 1993 with the world's first multi-wall bat, the Doublewall.
