Pros: awesome pop no vibration what so ever and always going yard
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: Great pop!! Haven't had any problems with it, overall great bat!
Cons: Haven't had any problems
Pros: Sweet bat! HUGE SWEET SPOT!! Very balanced for a drop 8. Easy to swing form the very first swing. Powdering the ball to the all fields! 12 yrs old, appx. 150 lbs and hammering the 31/23. Very minimal vibration felt even on cold days. Love my new Marucci !!
Cons: None that I can feel.
Pros: my son just received the CAT6 and loves it. Great pop out of the wrapper and very balanced. He had to switch to all aluminum and -8 for the middle school team but the transition from a drop ten half/half has been seamless. In fact he has the CAT6 as his number one bat.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Just bought the 29" for my 9yr old son and wow! I have never seen him hit so well. The -8 weight means the user needs to be physically strong enough to swing hard but the balance makes it much easier. One of the best I've ever seen in 5 years of coaching and that includes all of the expensive composites. Looks great too.
Cons: Nothing yet.
Pros: Great feel, Looks great, Good po right out of the wrapper
Cons: None except for the white handle.
Pros: I purchased a Cat 6 bat for my 12 year old son after having loved his 30" -8 Marucci Black 2 . Within 3 weeks of purchase the Cat 6 31/23 -8 had dented and cracked in several places. Had to return the bat for replacement but there were very few options in the -8
Cons: Soft bat, dents easily.
Pros: My travel team just had a game and we hit 7 home runs all with the cat 6 who wouldn't want that bat?
Pros: The bat handle is amazing and you dont even need any batting gloves. The bat also is a balanced bat and wherever you hit it it feels great.
Cons: If you hit the ball on the barrel of the bat there is some vibration and painful enough for you to shake your hand a few times.
Pros: Within one week, my son had adjusted to this bat from a 31, -10.
Cons: Waiting to see about durability, as he even hits weekly during the offseason.
Pros: Good pop and no vibrations even on cold days I just got the 32/27 -5 bat
Pros: bunch a pop. little vibration. the grip is comfortable. like how it sounds when the ball comes off the bat.
Cons: learning how to bunt with it. ??

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 CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 ? Ask our team of experts, and they will respond within 24 hours.Ask A Question OR
These appear to be different than the original CAT 6. The graphics are different and I believe the original had a taper at the knob. Are these a newly designed CAT 6? How else are they different from the original?
The Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 we now have in stock do not have a flared knob style, and "Marucci" on the barrel is in grey instead of red. Other than that, these models would be the same as the previous model.
My son is 4'8" and 70 lbs. What size bat do you recommend?
Based on his height and weight, would recommend getting the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 in a 30 inch model as this bat is not made in a 29 inch.
My son is 13 years old, 5' tall and 95 lbs. He has been using (and really likes) the Adidas EQT 30" 22oz, but we can't find that bat for sale anywhere, even on your site which we have purchased over 10 bats from your company due to selection, price, and trust. Would you recommend the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (this would need to be USSSA certified as well) as an excellent alternate to the Adidas bat?
First off, we certainly appreciate your business and kind words. As for the recommendation, I believe this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 would be a great option as an alternative to the EQT. The Cat 6 will provide you with the same 30" 22oz. size, as well as an improved AZ3000 alloy for season-long durability and proven performance. This bat is USSSA certified.
My son is 13 years old 5'1" and 110 lbs. Would the 32 inch -8 be a good bat for him?
Based on his height and weight, we would suggest the 31" model in the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68. If you feel that your player has good bat speed and strength though you could certainly jump up to the 32".
My son is 12 and is 5'3" and 135 pounds. Would you recommend the 32" bat?
Based upon your player's height and weight, we would recommend going with an option of this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) in the 31" or 32" size. If you are feeling better with 32" option that will be just fine for use by your player as long as you feel he can handle the 24 oz weight of the 32" option.
I am looking at the Cat 6 and the XL3. I would appreciate any thoughts in comparing the two.
The Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 and the 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 are both one-piece alloy bats. These two bats will feature different swing weights though. The 2016 Easton XL3 Senior League Baseball Bat: SL16X38 will feature an end-loaded swing weight while the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 will have a balanced swing weight. The Marucci and its balanced swing weight will be beneficial for the player that is more of a contact hitter. It will feature a larger sweet spot but less concentrated in weight (sweet spot that is). The XL3 will benefit the power hitter more as the sweet spot on this bat will be smaller but more concentrated in weight. What this creates, is more of a pendulum/whip effect with regards to the barrel; thus creating more distance on balls that are centered on the sweet spot. A top heavy bat can cause top hand lag though. This barrel lag will lead to a slower swing and a bat path that is less ideal for making consistent/quality contact.
Can this bat be used in Little League Junior division?
Yes, this Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) would be legal in the Junior Division of Little League Baseball.
How long will this bat typically last?
The lifespan on the Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68 will vary. Depending on the usage (bat used for all practice, games, batting practice, only one player using, etc), the weather (weather under 70 degrees can diminish the lifespan of a bat quicker) and whether or not the ball is hit on the barrel versus the end cap or towards the hands will all affect the bat's durability. With that being said, the average lifespan will be tough to pinpoint.
My 13 year old son is 5'4 and 110 lbs. What size bat would you suggest? Thanks.
Based upon your son's height and weight, I would recommend using a 31" Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat: MSBC68.
What is the weight distribution? Is it balanced or end loaded?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) has a -8 length to weight ratio and has a balanced weight distribution.
I am 66" (5'6) and 125 lbs. What size bat should I get?
I would suggest a 32" 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) based on your height and weight.
Is it legal in the Babe Ruth 13-15 division?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) features a fully alloy design with a 2 5/8" barrel diameter and has the USSSA 1.15 BPF stamp. These features make it legal for play in the Babe Ruth 13-15 year old division.
I am 12 years old. I am 4"11 and weigh 90lbs. What size should I get?
We would recommend a 30" in the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) for you.
Is this bat allowed for the Intermediate 50/70 division of Little League?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) will have the USSSA certification stamp and a big barrel. If your league allows big barrel bats, this would be perfect!
Does this bat come with a 2 3/4" barrel diameter?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is only available in a 2 5/8" barrel diameter. Marucci only makes the CAT 6 with a 2 3/4" barrel for the Coach Pitch version, the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (MJBBC6).
I'm 9 years old, 5'1" and weigh 148 pounds. I've been using a DeMarini Voodoo 30" 21 oz. How will it compare to the new Cat 6?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a one piece full alloy model featuring the AZ3000 Aerospace grade alloy. It will feature a more balanced swing weight than the Voodoo. Additionally, it will be quite a bit more stiff through the zone than the two-piece Voodoo.
I have twins that play 9 year old travel ball (kid pitch). They are about 1" and 5 lbs. of each other. The tallest is 54" and is about 68 lbs. We are currently using the Cat 5 27/17. One is the lead off hitter and the other is around 5th. They both are home run hitters. What would you suggest for the Spring? Would the CAT 6 be good for both? Should they have separate bats?
The 28" or 29" 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) would be ideal. It is great for power or contact hitters. The balanced design will allow for fast bat speeds. Also, the fully alloy design will not require any period of break-in.
I only buy Marucci bats for my 12yo. for the last 3 months he has been swinging a drop -3 Team Marucci. It's made him stronger, and he's hit a few shots, but he's not ready for it yet. What kind of results are reasonable to expect from his new Marucci CAT 6 drop -8?
The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a great bat for a player that age. It is a one-piece all alloy design like his TEAM model. The CAT 6 will be more balanced but with a larger sweet spot. I think you will see better results with this CAT 6 due to the larger sweet spot and the lighter weight which will help him get through the zone quicker with faster pitching.
Is this bat as balanced as the Black and will this bat last me about two years?
Given the countless ways and situations a bat can be used in, it is impossible to predict how long the bat will last for a player. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is a durable model and it does come with a 12 month warranty to protect against breakage. The CAT 6 will be similarly balanced to the 2014 Marucci Black Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBB148).
I am 4'9",104 lbs, and I am 10 years old. I am swinging a DeMarini Voodoo 2014 and it is working well. I am wondering, which length do you think I should get?
Based on your height and weight, we recommend a 30" model in the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68).
Better bat: CAT 6 -8 or Easton XL3 -9, for an 11 year old contact hitter with power?
That will be a matter of preference. The 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) features a balanced swing weight, which is generally preferred by contact hitters. The XL3 features an end loaded design, which is normally preferred by power hitters. Since the player can hit for both power and contact, it will truly be up to them and if they can handle the additional end load of the XL3, or if they want to stay with a balanced model like the CAT 6. Both are great options to go with.
When will this Cat 6 Senior Bat (drop 8) be available for purchase?
The release date on the 2015 Marucci CAT 6 Senior League Baseball Bat (MSBC68) is not official at this time, but it should be released around the first part of October.
