Does this bat run out of pop? I've had this bat for a year and a half and I want to know if there is an indicator that forebodes me purchasing another bat.

The DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR (DXVDC) bat has consistently been one of our top sellers and a high performing alloy barrel bat. Unfortunately, with all bats there is a finite lifespan. The lifespan varies based on how the bat is used. Factors such as cold weather use, frequency of use, whether the bat is used by multiple players, and whether the bat is used for both practice and games can affect the lifespan. We suggest not using the bat in conditions under 55 degrees and using the bat to hit only approved baseballs (yellow dimpled cage balls can affect durability).

I'm 5'8'' and weigh 150 pounds. Do you think a 33/30 would work or should I stick to 32/29?

Based on your height and weight, we would recommend getting the DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult in a 32''. However, if you feel that you can handle a longer bat then it would be a benefit to move up in size.

I am 5'8" 200 lbs. What size would you recommend? A 32" 29 oz.? Or a 33" 30 oz.?

My son is 5' 120 lbs. What bat would you recommend? He has never used a drop 3.

The DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC is an end-loaded bat. I would suggest swinging a very balanced model for your first -3. The DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR: DXVXC Adult is very balanced, and would be one I would highly recommend.

I'm 5'10" and weigh about 120 lbs (I know, very skinny). Would the 33" 30 oz. work best for me? I'm a hybrid as far as contact/power.

Yes, a 33" 30 oz. in the DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR would be a good size for you. Here is a link to our sizing chart on the website: http://www.justbats.com/bat-resource-guide/selecting-a-baseballbat/.

How does this bat perform compared to the 2014 Voodoo?

The DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat will feel the same as the 2014 version in swing weight. The 2014 will provide a newer composite material that will maximize stiffness and pop. Both bats would be great for a power hitter that likes the end loaded feel.

If you are more of a power hitter than I would go with the end loaded feel of the 2013 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR. If you were more of a contact line drive hitter than I would go with the 2013 DeMarini CF5 BBCOR.

Is the 33" model too big for a person who is 5' 9'' and 130 lbs.?

At 5' 9" and 130 lbs., I would recommend a 31" or 32" 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat.

Doug F. Expert ·Apr 01, 2013

49509

I am 13, 5 foot 6 inches, and 120 lbs. I want to get this bat but I don't know if I should get a 32 inch or 33 inch because I am growing quickly and will probably be 130 lbs and 5 foot 9 inches next year and I want to use this bat next year.

Whether you are 5'6" 120 lbs. or 5'9" 130 lbs., a 32" model of the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC would be the recommended size.

Tyler Expert ·Mar 29, 2013

49231

I am 5' 5" and weigh about 148lbs. Would a 33" 30oz. be good for me?

You could use a 33", but it will be on the heavier side. I would suggest getting the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo in a 32" bat for your size.

Noah Expert ·Mar 25, 2013

Is this bat still usable after the end cap becomes flimsy or comes off?

You could still use the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult after the end cap comes off, but it may be deemed illegal in your league and the vibration might become really bad.

Noah Expert ·Mar 09, 2013

I am a hitter with fast bat speed and good strength. I used an Easton Reflex last year, but would like a bat that lets me use my strength for more power too. Is this a good choice?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat features an end-loaded swing weight, and would be a great option for a power hitter.

Aubrey Expert ·Mar 04, 2013

Does the BBCOR stamp on the bat have to be there if you are playing Babe Ruth baseball in Surprise, AZ?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat will have the BBCOR .50 Certification on it. If you are required to swing BBCOR for your league I am certain the umpires would need to see a stamp or marking.

Brandon Expert ·Feb 24, 2013

What size do you recommend for my son who is 160 lbs. and 5'7"?

A 32" model of the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC is recommended based on his size.

46336

How much of a difference is the 29.5 oz and the 29 oz (size and weight wise)? Could it affect my bat speed?

A 29.5 oz. model will be .5 oz. heavier and .5" longer. Any increase in weight has the potential to slow a player's swing.

Tyler Expert ·Feb 13, 2013

46334

I am more of a contact hitter, but can still hit the ball hard and long. Would this bat be a good bat for me?

What is the difference between the 2012 Voodoo and the 2013 Voodoo? Also, what one would probably be better for me (5'9' 170 lbs) the Voodoo or 5150?

The 2013 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC uses upgraded composite and alloy materials for a better durability and performance.The 2013 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC will be more end loaded than the 2012 Voodoo and the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR. If you need to increase your bat speed, the 2013 Rawlings 5150 Alloy BBCOR would be a better choice.

I am currently using a 32/29 Voodoo. I need a bigger size. I am thinking about getting either another Voodoo or a CF5. I can swing my Voodoo just fine with a really good bat speed. I hit more for power. I am wondering which bat would benefit me most, or which one would have more pop.

Both have excellent pop. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult is more end loaded than the CF5, better for a power hitter with good bat speed.

Kara Expert ·Jan 28, 2013

Our son just turned 17 he is 6 feet tall and weighs 185. Has medium strength. Hit a couple of home runs over fence last year coaches really emphasize batting average and on base percentage, he has been the 3 and 4 hitter in the line up on both varsity and the Babe Ruth teams last year. He has fairly long arms. Wondering which Voodoo bat size you would recommend? We think the 1/2 sizes are very interesting.

That is hard for us to say without knowing what the length and weight of his current bat is. Also, our Bat Coach is a great tool to help determine what size is best: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/

What will give better performance, the 2012 Voodoo or the 2013 CF5? I'm 6' 175 and am a power/line drive hitter.

Both bats are great options. For best results, it's recommended a player swing what feels best to them. The difference between these bats is found in the materials. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult is a two-piece, alloy barrel/composite handle, end loaded bat, that is best suited for power hitters. The CF5 is a two-piece composite bat with a low swing weight which gives the player a faster swing speed. Either one is good for you.

Kara Expert ·Jan 17, 2013

Should I get the Voodoo, Easton S2, or the Z-1000? I am a 5'10" 145 pound contact and power hitter.

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat and the Easton S2 are both two-piece hybrid designs. They have an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The Louisville Slugger TPX Z-1000 BBCOR: BB12Z Adult bat is a one-piece composite design and will feel more stiff than the previous two bats. The DeMarini Voodoo has a slight end load feel and the Easton S2 and Louisville Slugger Z-1000 have more balanced swing weights. Choosing between the three will be what you think is the best fit.

Aubrey Expert ·Jan 15, 2013

Will this be legal for 2013? In high school league?

What's the difference between the Voodoo and the Exogrid BBCOR bats?

The DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid design with a composite handle and aluminum barrel. The Louisville Slugger TPX EXOGRID is technically a one-piece aluminum bat but it does have composite inserts in the handle.

Tom Expert ·Jan 02, 2013

43984

My son is 5'9" 148 contact hitter, would this bat good for him and what size?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat should work well for your son. I would also recommend looking at the 2012 DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR: DXVNC White Adult bat because it is a more balanced bat better suited to contact hitters. A 32" 29 oz. bat would be just about right for him.

Jeff Expert ·Dec 29, 2012

What bats are similar to the DeMarini Voodoo?

The Easton XL2 and Easton S2 would be comparable bats due to their two-piece hybrid design.

Zach Expert ·Dec 26, 2012

Why does DeMarini put numbers on the bat cap that go in the order 1,3,5,7 going from the right to the left?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat does have numbers on the end cap of the bat. This is to help you as a hitter. You can keep track of what side of the bat you are hitting on. It will keep you from wearing out one side of the bat.

I'm 15, 170 lbs. and 6'1" and need a new bat that is similar to the Demarini Voodoo. What bat should I get and at what length?

At your size I would recommend swinging at bat length of 33". The most popular bat in the adult BBCOR size is the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult. There is a 33" and 33.5" available. Something similar to the Voodoo's make up and feel would be this bat: 2013 Easton XL2 BBCOR: BB13X2 Adult.

Both the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat and the Nike Aero MC2 BBCOR: BT0633 baseball bats are very similar. They are both two-piece half and half bats, however; the Voodoo is slightly endloaded and is not quite as balanced as the Nike MC2.

Aubrey Expert ·Nov 28, 2012

42054

I really like the reviews of this bat. I'm trying to figure out if it is suited for a smaller player who is a contact hitter with pop.

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat has weight placement closer to the taper rather than in the barrel which allows DeMarini to maintain the integrity of the sweetspot and keep swing speeds at their fastest! It should work well for either a power hitter or contact hitter.

Jeff Expert ·Nov 25, 2012

Which one is better the CF5 or the Voodoo? I want to buy one of them.

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat will be a two-piece design. It will have a composite handle with a alloy barrel. This bat will have a slight end-load typically favored by power hitters. This bat will require no period of break-in. The 2012 DeMarini CF5 BBCOR: DXCFC Adult bat will also be two-piece but will be 100% composite material. This bat will be very Balanced in swing weight and not be End-Loaded at all. This bat will require a period of break-in of about 100-200 swings. You can break-in the barrel by hitting balls from a tee or soft toss. Just be sure to rotate the bat 1/4" after each swing. Be sure and do this before any game use. Both bats come with a 12-month warranty through DeMarini.

Brandon Expert ·Nov 21, 2012

Out of these bats which one should I buy? It's my first BBCOR bat ever. I'm a power hitting 13 year old.

Yes, the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC Adult bat would be a good choice for your first BBCOR model. Since you are a power hitter and like the slightly end-loaded feel, this bat would work well. It will be a two-piece hybrid design. It will feature a composite handle and an alloy barrel. This bat will require no period of break-in.

Using the Bat Coach Feature on JustBats.com I was able to determine that your daughter should be swinging a bat length of 33". The Bat Coach also recommends bats. Check these out: The 2013 Louisville Slugger TPS Xeno: FP13X Fastpitch, 2013 DeMarini CF5: DXCFS Fastpitch, and the 2012 DeMarini Vendetta C6: DXVCF Fastpitch bat.

My son is 5' >100 lbs. Needs a -3 for high school. What size bat should I get (he has been using a 30" -9 Voodoo)?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR: DXVDC is slightly end loaded. We would recommend a more balanced bat like the 2013 DeMarini CF5 BBCOR: DXCFC for the transition to a BBCOR bat. We suggest a 30" 27 oz.

I understand that the Easton XL3 is more of a power bat, and I would like to get a power bat, and a bat for faster pitchers such as the Easton S3. Is the Voodoo more of a power bat or speed bat? Would it make more sense to get the Vexxum and Voodoo Bat Pack, or Voodoo and XL3 Bat pack?

The DeMarini Voodoo has a slightly end loaded feel making it a good choice for hitters with above average strength and swing speed. The DeMarini Vexxum will be more of a balanced bat compared to the Voodoo and Easton XL3.

I am 5'5 and weigh 130 lbs, but I usually swing better with heavier bats. I tried my friends 33 inch 30oz bat and I hit a homer the first time at bat. Would that be good for me?

Yes, the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR would be a decent bat for you. If you like the heavier feel of bats though you should go with a one-piece, end loaded bat like the Easton XL3. The XL3 will provide a stiffer feel with better bat head control and larger sweet spot.

There is no standard time frame on a bat life. There are a lot of factors that play into the longevity of each bat. But typically a bat should last you a couple of seasons with proper use. The more it is used the less life expectancy it will have.

Or if you like the flex of a two-piece bat with the half alloy barrel/ composite handle Voodoo. Which ever is most suited for you as a hitter would be the option you should go with.

The DeMarini Voodoo is legal for 15U travel ball. This bat has an alloy barrel, while the DeMarini CF5 has a composite barrel. With that being said, composite bats do tend to offer a little more pop due to the trampoline effect the composite material creates.

All BBCOR bats, as a whole, do not need to be broken in. Composite-barreled bats need to be broken in, and neither the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo and the DeMarini Vexxum have a composite barrel. They are both two-piece hybrids with a composite handle and alloy barrel and are game ready the day you got them.

The Marucci Black and the DeMarini Voodoo are both great bats that would be a good choice for your son. Both of these bats have alloy barrels with composite handles, have great pop and will last quite a while. You can't really go wrong with either!

What is the best way to break in this bat

The DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR DXVDC is going to have an alloy barrel so there is no break in necessary for it. It will be broken in straight out of the wrapper.

My son is undecided between the Voodoo, the Rawlings 5150, and the Easton S3. What are the primary differences? Seems hard to pass up this price on the Voodoo but he seems like a contact hitter but would like to be a power hitter. Hit with the Easton Reflex last year and liked it.

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid bat with a composite handle and alloy barrel whereas the Rawlings 5150 and Easton S3 are both one-piece alloy bats. Two-piece bats are generally preferred by contact hitters and one-piece bats are generally preferred by power hitters, so your decision should be based your son's personal hitting style.

I'm 240 and 6 feet age 16. I usually destroy the ball. What size should I have? I don't want to sacrifice any bat speed.

My son is 14. 240lbs- 5'8" curently uses a 33" Voodoo and is very comfortable with it. Is there much difference in the 33.5" bat? He is hitting his growth spurt and needing to buy a BBCOR bat for school.

Per our Bat Coach tool on our website, your son should use a 33"-34" bat, so the 33.5" 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR should work fine for him. Since he is hitting his growth spurt and getting stronger, moving up a 1/2" and 1/2 oz. should't negatively affect his swing speed.

What would be the best bat or bats for a 13 year old 5'8" 150 lb power hitting player? I'm thing 32/29 is that good? Also looking at Voodoo, Prototype II, and XL bats? Thanks for your help.

Based on the height and weight of the player, a 32" 29oz. would be the right size to use. If you are looking for a power hitter, the Easton XL3 or the RIP-IT Prototype II are great options to consider. Both are one-piece designs that will be very stiff and help generate more power.

Is the Voodoo end heavy like the Easton Surge?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo has a slight end loaded feel.

I am a gap hitter should I get the voodoo or the rawlings 5150?

Both the DeMarini Voodoo and the Rawlings 5150 would be great options for a gap hitter. The main difference between the two bats is the DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid (composite handle/aluminum barrel) and the Rawlings 5150 is a one-piece fully aluminum bat. Here is a link to further compare the two bats. http://www.justbats.com/compare/

I have had the Voodoo for about 5 months now and about a week after I got it I noticed that if you turned the bat over I would hear a noise that sounds like beads rolling around on the inside. I always thought this was normal but another player on my team with the same model does not have this problem. Coud you tell me if that means it is cracked on the inside or it might have any other problem?

Sometimes little pieces break off as the composite breaks down and make a rattling sound. This shouldn't affect the performance of the bat, but if you feel the performance has been comprimised you can utilize the 12-month manufacturers warranty. You can contact Demarini at 1-800-937-2287 for warranty details.

How does the BBCOR Voodoo compare to the BBCOR CF5 or Easton Surge?

The DeMarini CF5 is a two-piece, all composite bat and is DeMarini's top of the line model. The DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Easton Surge is similar to the Voodoo as it too has an alloy barrel and composite handle.

Is it USSSA approved?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR is not USSSA approved, it is BBCOR certified. Adult bats will not have the same USSSA certification as youth and youth big barrel bats. If you are looking for a USSSA approved bat you will need to look for a youth, youth big barrel, or a senior league bat.

Bobby Expert ·Mar 29, 2012

How would you compare the DXVDC with the BB12Z?

I would start by pointing out the differences in construction. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR is a two-piece hybrid with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Louisville Slugger Z-1000 is a one-piece bat that is all composite. The Voodoo will offer more flex as it is a two-piece bat. The Z-1000 is much stiffer as it is a one-piece model. Both bats have tremendous pop for a BBCOR bat and both are well balanced. The Z-1000 may be better for a stronger hitter with above average swing speed. The Voodoo I would like if I was a contact or gap hitter looking to improve my power.

Tyler Expert ·Mar 28, 2012

21541

How would you compare the pop and balance between the Voodoo and Rawlings 5150 Velo?

Since both bats have alloy barrels, pop will be similar for each one. As far as balance goes, the Voodoo is slightly end loaded and the 5150 Velo is more balanced.

Jennifer Expert ·Mar 27, 2012

About how long will it take to break in?

What size bat should i get for high school? I'm 5' 10" and 200 pounds.

Based on your height and weight, a 33" 30 oz. bat would be the best option.

Tyler Expert ·Feb 26, 2012

17348

Would it be worth it to get this bat for my first year in Juniors Little League and hope it lasts until high school or should I get the -5 which would last better but wouldn't be legal for high school?

That depends. If you have never swung a Adult -3 bat before, it may be a difficult transition. I recommend going to a local sporting goods store and taking a few hacks with some adult baseball bats. If you feel comfortable swinging an adult bat and do not see a drop in swing speed or control, you should be good. If not, go with a -5.

Tyler Expert ·Feb 26, 2012

17345

Is there a difference in performance from this bat and the -5 because this bat is bacon?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a BBCOR bat and designed to perform like a wooden bat. The -5 is a USSSA certified bat and will have a little more pop.

Tyler Expert ·Feb 26, 2012

17262

What size bat would you recommend for my 13 year old son who is 5'8" 135lbs.

A good size BBCOR bat for your son will be a 32-33" bat. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo DXVDC has been a very popular bat and will have good pop.

Kris Expert ·Feb 25, 2012

17011

Besides the price, what are the differences between the Voodoo and the Vexxum?

The main difference is the materials they are made out of. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is made out of a higher grade alloy, a different composite material in the handle and a different end cap than the DeMarini Vexxum. Other than these differences, both bats are two-piece hybrids and will perform just about the same.

Jennifer Expert ·Feb 23, 2012

16754

Deciding on a 31/28 and heard good things about the DeMarini Voodoo, Rip-It, also Easton's series Having trouble deciding can you provide input?

All three are great bats. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece bat that may be better suited for contact hitters looking to add some pop. The Rip-It's are great bats for players with good swing speed and above average strength. The XL Series from Easton are slightly endloaded and better for stronger hitters where their S Series is better for players who don't hit for as much power.

Tyler Expert ·Feb 21, 2012

I am 5'6" 135lbs 13 years old. stronger than most 13 year olds. I like this bat. I have had another voodoo before and I like it. I'm very interested in purchasing this bat but don't know whether I should get it in 32in 29oz or 31in 28oz. Thank you for your time.

At 5'6", I recommend a 31" bat.

Tyler Expert ·Feb 20, 2012

16240

Which bat is better, the Voodoo or the CF5?

Composite barrel bats like the DeMarini CF5 tend to perform better over their lifespan than an alloy barrel bat. It will take some time to break in, unlike the Voodoo which is hot out of the wrapper. Both are very high quality bats.

KB Expert ·Feb 17, 2012

Which bat is better for a contact hitter this one or the Nano Tek?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece bat which is usually preferred by contact hitters. A two-piece bat offers a more little flexibility and pop for the hitter. The Anderson NanoTek is a one-piece design which is typically preferred by power hitters. A one-piece design makes the bat more stiff and really helps with the power. Here is a link to all of our two-piece BBCOR certified bats in case you need any more suggestions: http://www.justbats.com/products/baseball%20bats~adult/approved%20for~bbcor/material~half%20and%20half/

Would you reccomend using a wood bat over BBCOR? They both seem to have the same pop. What are the advantages and disadvantages of both?

BBCOR was meant to level the playing field and make alloy and composite bats perform more like wood bats. There are great BBCOR bats out there that still have a lot of pop. You would end up going through a lot more wood bats in a season instead of going through one BBCOR bat.

Ryan Expert ·Feb 07, 2012

15117

Can't choose between this and Omen. I'd be playing year round, but I like the composite sound of the omen. which bat would PERFORM better?

The Easton Omen will have a break-in period of 150-200 swings but would have similar pop as the Voodoo. The Omen's composite barrel will improve over time as the composite continues to break-in but the Voodoo's alloy barrel will be at its hottest the day you buy it.

Shelbe Expert ·Feb 06, 2012

15111

Hey, I'm a 13 years old, 5 '8 and about 120. I'm a linedrive hitter with some power and considering this and the Easton Omen. I would like a durable bat with POP.

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo and Easton Omen are both two-piece hybrids and good options for a line drive hitter. Both are durable, will improve once they are broken in and have great pop.

I am a 5'9" 140lbs line drive 2 hole hitter. I am trying to decided between the Combat B3 or the Voodoo. Which is the best bat for me in YOUR OPINION (Don't say they're both great bats, pick one).

The COMBAT B3 has a composite barrel and the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo has an alloy barrel. Picking between the two will be more on what you like to hit. If you like composite bats, get the B3. If you like hitting alloy, get the Voodoo. These are very good BBCOR bats and the reviews have been great on both.

Is this bat available with a drop 3 rating for a HS player? Is this approved for N.C. Highs School play?

My son is looking at this bat versus the 5150 Velo. He would be considered a contact hitter. Which would be a better fit?

Would you guys prefer the 5150 or the Voodoo? Thanks

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo and Rawlings 5150 are both great bats but very different. The Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid and would be a good choice for a contact hitter. The 5150 is a one-piece alloy and would be a good choice for a power hitter.

This bat, the CF5 or any of the power brigades? I hit a lot of doubles and singles but I can also hit some out if I get a hold of them. Liked the Voodoos in the past but this bat seems really top heavy? And how is the pop for a BBCOR? So if you do say power brigades which model (XL or S) and what specific model(1,2,3). Thanks so much.

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is not end loaded, it is balanced, as is the Easton S series and DeMarini CF5. The XL series is the only end loaded bat that you referenced. Because you are a singles/doubles hitter, I recommend either the Voodoo, S series or CF5. The S1 is a two-piece composite, the S2 is a two-piece hybrid and the S3 is a one-piece alloy.

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid and the Louisville Slugger is a one-piece composite. Line drive hitters typically like to use two-piece bats so I recommend the Voodoo.

All BBCOR bats are a -3 and will not come in a -5. Senior League bats come in a -5.

The Louisville Slugger Z-1000 and the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo are both great bats that will perform well in cold weather. However, we do not recommend using any bat when the temperature drops below 55 degrees. At that temperature, baseballs become very dense and can damage the bat.

We live in Oregon. Play in a lot of cold weather beginning of the year. Would it be a bad idea to purcahse the CF5 considering the all composite? Would the Voodoo be a better choice for us? Do you have a link for a fitting chart? Thanks.

We don't recommend using any bat, composite or alloy, in temperatures below 55 degrees. The cold makes the baseball very dense which can lead to dented alloy or cracked composite. In appropriate temperatures, either bat is a great option. Here is a link to our Bat Coach: http://www.justbats.com/bat-coach/ I would suggest going with the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo because it will perform better in the colder weather with less durability concerns than the Cf5

What is better the Marrcui CAT 5 or Voodoo?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo has similar pop to the CAT 5. Both are very durable and popular BBCOR bats.

Will this be legal for PONY in 2012?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is legal for 14 & under or 15 & over PONY play. You can also use a USSSA 1.15 BPF stamped bat to get a lower bat weight, if needed.

What is the difference between the DXVDC and WTDXVNB?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo uses different composite materials in the handle. Both are going to perform very similar.

Would you recommend the Voodoo or the Rip-It Prototype 2 for BBCOR 2012?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo and RIP-IT Prototype II are both excellent bats but very different. The Voodoo is a two-piece hybrid with an alloy barrel and composite handle. The Prototype II is a one-piece alloy bat. Both are nicely balanced and have great pop.

Do you think this bat is the best BBCOR bat available?

Currently, the hottest BBCOR bats are the Easton Omen, COMBAT B3, and the Louisville Slugger Z-1000.

Hey. I have swung the DeMarini Voodoo and have noticed and liked the heavier handle and more balanced feel. Are there any more bats that compare with the Voodoo? (pop,balance,performance)

Most of the DeMarini two-piece bats are going to have a similar feel to the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo,

Sean Expert ·Nov 12, 2011

Will it change my swing with the weight and does it hurt to use in under 65 degrees?

This is a balanced, two-piece hybrid bat with a composite handle and an alloy barrel. We recommend not using it when the temperature drops below 55 degrees.

I am looking for my son for Christmas. This is for High School baseball and my son is 5'8 185 pounds. What would you recommend?

I would recommend a 33" 30 oz bat based on his height and weight.

I'm 14 and play in on a premier select team. I am required to use a BBCOR next season and I'm thinking about getting this bat or the TPX Exogrid. Could you please give me a direct answer. If you need any extra information, I'm a leadoff hitter who likes to go opposite field and hits line drives.

Both the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo and Louisville Slugger EXOGRID2 are very good options for a contact hitter. The Voodoo may have a little more POP than the EXOGRID2.

KG Expert ·Nov 01, 2011

I was wondering, is there any composite on it? And what is taper ring tech?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a hybrid bat with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The taper ring technology helps keep the bat evenly balanced and not feel end loaded.

KG Expert ·Nov 01, 2011

8329

I am a power hitter, which BBCOR bat would you reccomend? 2012 Voodoo, 2012 Exo Grid2, or 2012 easton SxL3?

Either the Louisville Slugger ExoGrid2 or the Easton XL3. The XL3 is end loaded and better suited for a strong power hitter.

Derek Expert ·Oct 30, 2011

Voodoo, 5150, or Easton S3? What is more recommended or has more "pop"?

I really like the Rawlings 5150 and the Easton S3, but I would say the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo has just a little more pop. The Voodoo is also a two-piece bat that offers a little more flex that typically give contact or gap hitters more pop.

Derek Expert ·Oct 30, 2011

Comparing the Voodoo and the Combat B3 - durability, warranty, and performance. Looking at both bats having trouble deciding. 5'9" 120lbs with some pop. Worried about cold weather with spring games. Need some solid decisive feedback. VOODOO OR B3? Help.

In terms of performance, I like the COMBAT B3. It was one of the better feeling and highest performing BBCOR bats I've hit with. The Voodoo may hold up better in colder weather though. The B3 is a stiffer, one-piece bat that is often preferred by stronger hitters. Both have full warranties through the manufacturer.

Derek Expert ·Oct 30, 2011

What's the differentiation between the Voodoo and the Vexxum? Would we be talking different turning models if these were wood bats?

They are basically the same bat. Both use the same composite and alloy technology. We have received feedback that the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is slightly heavier than the DeMarini Vexxum. Both are very good bats.

K.B. Expert ·Oct 28, 2011

My son, 12, used to swing a 30" 20oz bat. What size would be comparable to a BBCOR or USSSA approved bat?

If he is required to use a BBCOR bat, which is a mandatory -3 length to weight ratio, compared to the -10 he was using with the 30-20. The adult bat is 7 ounces heavier. If he is not required to use adult size bats, then my recommendation is to drop him to either a -8 or a -5, to gradually prepare him for that big jump to the -3.

Linda Expert ·Oct 27, 2011

What is the rotation index and does it work?

DeMarini's Rotation Index is designed to help you rotate the bat evenly to help distribute contact throughout the barrel.

What bat is more balanced - the 2012 VooDoo or 2012 ExoGrid2?

Both the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo and 2012 ExoGrid2 are evenly balanced bats.

I'm a leadoff batter, therefore I'm looking for an evenly balanced bat that's good for quicker swings and line drives. Is this bat good for this or would you recomend a different bat.

Yes, the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo would be a great bat for quick swing speed. The Easton S2 would also be a good choice.

What is the best non composite bat that is also very balanced?

If you need a balanced bat, check out the Marucci CAT 5. It has a nice balance. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is an excellent bat, just a little end loaded.

LKH Expert ·Oct 20, 2011

7816

What is the best non-composite adult bat with no price limits?

Based on customer feedback and first hand experience, I would say either the Marucci CAT 5 or Rip-It Prototype II. Both are two of the highest performing alloy bats on the market.

John Expert ·Oct 20, 2011

Does the BBCOR make the bat have less pop than previous Voodoos?

Yes. BBCOR bats have less "pop" than the previous BESR bats.

K.B. Expert ·Oct 18, 2011

7461

Which bat is better for a contact hitter, the Voodoo or the Vexxum?

Both the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo and DeMarini Vexxum are two-piece hybrids that are good for a contact hitter. The Voodoo will have a little bit more pop than the Vexxum.

Looking at the new Voodoo and the CF5. What are the pros and cons between them? Have always been a Voodoo person (Loved the 2009 BESR model), but now first year in college being forced to use the bboc bat. The new Voodoo seem a little top heavy comparded the past BESR models

Both are similar in construction, but the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo has an alloy barrel with a composite handle. The CF5 has a composite barrel and handle. The Voodoo will feel slightly more end loaded than the CF5. Based on customer feedback and first hand experience, the CF5 will have a little more pop and perform slightly better than the Voodoo. The Voodoo still performs great and if you're used to using one, then I would say this year's Voodoo would be a great option.

CAT 5, 2012 DeMarini Voodoo, or DeMarini CF5? I had the 2010 Voodoo and that was (in my opinion) the best Voodoo ever and I also had the 2011 reddish one (not BBCOR). I know that the CF5 is composite but do composite BBCORs have the same pop as they used to? Does the new Voodoo make more of a ping sound rather than the sound of broken glass like the white 2012 Voodoo(BBCOR). And about the CAT 5, I hear it's the best pop for BBCORs, so would that be a better way or would the DeMarinis because I am used to them. Please don't say that the CF5 is all composite and the Voodoo is half and half because I know this.

The new BBCOR standard has put a restriction on the performance levels of all adult baseball bats (not just composites). These BBCOR bats will not be as high-performing as the old BESR or non-BBCOR bats. The CAT 5 is one of our best sellers and it does offer quite a bit of pop. It is a one-piece bat that will be stiffer than the CF5 or Voodoo. The CF5 and Voodoo offer more flex which is often preferred by contact hitters looking to add more pop. In terms of sound, the 2012 Voodoo will sound very similar to last year's Voodoo. I don't think I'd compare the sound to broken glass, but more of a muffled "ping". There is actually an audio link on the product page if you look to the right of the main product image. This way you can hear what the bat sounds like when it's hit. The CAT 5 will have a higher pitched "ping" sound than the Voodoo. Based on my personal experience, I would give the CF5 a slight edge in perfomance over the Voodoo. I've hit with the CAT 5, and although I've always preferred two-piece bats like the Voodoo and CF5, I would put the CAT 5 right up there with the CF5 in terms of performance. Ultimately, if you're used to using DeMarini's I would stick with the CF5 of Voodoo. That's always my recommendation for someone who's been loyal to one brand over the years.

2012 DeMarini Voodoo or CAT 5, which is the better bat? Which is a hitter bat?

They are both good bats. The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece bat, the CAT 5 is a one-piece. The CAT 5 is lighter weight and more balanced. Both have great pop.

Last year I used the BESR 2011 Vexxum and I loved it. But I tried out the new Vexxum and I hate it. Would the CF5 or the BBCOR Vodoo give me the similar feel and performance?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo is a two-piece bat like the DeMarini Vexxum so it is going to be the most similar in feel and performance.

I am in in 8th grade and will be trying out for my middle school baseball team this spring. Would I need a BBCOR bat and if so, is this this a good bat for me?(I am about 5'6 or 5'7 and 125 i hit anywhere from lead off to 3rd i usually hit singles and doubles with occasional power).

First thing I would do is check with your middle school. Most middle schools have to abide by high school rules, which would be a -3 BBCOR bat. But, some middle schools allow the transitional size of the -5. Before making a selection, I would find out exactly what is allowed in your area.

lkh Expert ·Oct 10, 2011

Which would be the better BBCOR bat the Demarini CF5 or the Demarini Voodoo 2012?

Both the 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR and 2012 DeMarini CF5 BBCOR are high performing bats, but bats with composite hitting surfaces like the CF5 often out perform bats with alloy hitting surfaces like the Voodoo.

My son will be a freshman this year and has to use a BBCOR this summer. He was hitting 350' bombs with the Easton Surge XXL BESR that is also a composite handle. Does this bat flex more or less than the 2011 XXL Surge? At 14-15 I don't know if he is strong enough to need a one piece handle. What do you think?

The 2012 DeMarini Voodoo BBCOR and Easton Surge BBCOR are both two-piece hybrid bats and will have a similar flex. Both are popular models and either would be an excellent choice.

Brett Expert ·May 19, 2011
