Questions and Answers for 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League Baseball Bat: DXVXY
Just want to make sure, since the barrel is alloy aluminum, are there any temperature restrictions in terms of not using in colder temps?
We actually recommend that you do not use any bat in temperatures under 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This is not due to the quality of the bat; this is because the colder temperatures actually negatively affect the density of the baseball. When the ball becomes more dense, it will actually damage a bat to hit it.
Is this bat good for Machine Pitch? Little League just changed the age rules. My son is skipping coach pitch right into machine pitch. I need a solid 26 inch bat that won't dent.
Unfortunately, we couldn't guarantee it wouldn't dent, but the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXY) should hold up well when used in a machine pitch league.
My 9 year old is 4'11 and 101 lbs. Last year he swung a 30/18 Distance bat. He recently made the 9U travel team for 2015. Any suggestions? He wants to move to a 2 5/8.
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXR) is an excellent bat to consider. It has an extremely balanced swing weight and would provide him with a easy transition into a 2 5/8" barrel. The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League Baseball Bat (DXVXY) is a great bat as well, but it has a 2 3/4" barrel.
My son is 8 years old, 4'5", and 68 lbs. Many online charts that I have found indicate that 30" is the ideal length, however, bat coach indicates 29". What are the advantages/disadvantages to using the 30" over the 29"?
By increasing the bat length to 30" this can help players use the bat a little bit longer while they are going through growth spurts. It can also help players make contact with the ball a little better because it provides a small extension through the zone. If a bat is too long however, this will make it uncomfortable for players, and can restrict their full potential. More than likely, if a bat is too long, a player can always choke up on it until they are able to fully grow into it. For young players, this is extremely common, however, one inch is not going to make a huge difference. Therefore, I would probably suggest using a 30" in the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Senior League Baseball Bat: (DXVXY).

My son is 6 years old 4' 2" and weighs 55 pounds. He will be playing 6U this year, what bat would you suggest?
Based on results from our Bat Coach (http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/), we recommend a 30" 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXY) for a player with your son's height and weight.
Hi,I am a 13u baseball player who was wondering, since this bat is designed for 12u and under, if this would be a good bat for me. Also, I am about 4 ft. 11 in. tall and weigh about 95 lbs.
Just because it is designed for players 12 and under does not mean that this would be too small for you. When selecting a bat you want to pick out t he size that fits you best and for someone your size I believe that this would be a good option for you.

My son has been using his Marucci CAT 5 for two years. It's been great, but I think it's on its last leg. I'm trying to decide if i should stick with Marucci and get the Marucci One, or try this DeMarini?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXY) is a very high performing bat. The two-piece design is ideal for a contact hitter. It also can be used in coach, machine, and kid pitch. It is a very durable bat.
My son is 7 years old , 4 ft. 1 in. tall and weighs about 62 lbs. He currently uses a Louisville Slugger Omaha,( 27 in.,model YB136XL). He wants an additional bat and I want to make sure he gets the best bat and the right size for him. Should we stay with the Omaha series or try something else. Also currently he is having good success with the Omaha.
According to his height and weight I recommend a 28" length. If the Louisville Slugger Omaha (YB136XL) is working for your son, I recommend sticking with it.

How does this bat compare up to the old Marucci Cat 5? The old Cat 5 is the best coach pitch bat I've found for my 7 year old, but unfortunately it cracked. I am trying to decide between this bat or the MAKO Junior Big Barrel.
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXY) features a two-piece hybrid design. This means that is has an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The CAT 5 featured a one-piece fully alloy design. The Easton MAKO also features a one-piece design but it is full composite. This means that the MAKO will have to go through a break in period but once it is broken in, it will continue to get hotter over time. Bats will alloy barrels (like the Vexxum and CAT 5) will be hot right out of the wrapper and will not require a break in time.
I am trying to decide between the mako, xl3 and Vexxum for my soon to be 7yr old.? which is the best?
Those are all very good bats. The Easton MAKO will be the highest performing because of the composite barrel and extended barrel.
I got my son this bat last week. He crushed the ball at the Coach Pitch tournament. He took Tournament MVP. This weekend we have a Machine Pitch Tournament. Speed is 42MPH. I noticed this bat is not designed for that kind of speed. What would you recommend that is close to this same bat?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel is not made to withstand speeds exceeding 40 MPH. The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXR Senior League is a half oz. heavier and a smaller, 2 5/8" barrel that is designed to withstand higher velocity pitching in kid and machine pitch.
Is this a good option for a Machine Pitch league?
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel is intended for Coach Pitch only, and is not built to withstand higher velocity pitching in Kid or Machine Pitch. The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXR Senior League is intended to withstand higher velocities, and would be a great option for Machine Pitch.
Is there a break-in for this particular bat?

I noticed there were a couple of different models of this bat. I am looking at this model bat for my 6 year old son who is in coach pitch, using the regulation 9" hardball. Is the -10.5 oz model made for the coach pitch? Wondering because this model comes in a 30" which is unusual for smaller kids in coach pitch.
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel is designed for Coach Pitch.
