For those who long for the extra BP sessions, the first to practice,
the last to leave. DeMarini's new 2013 bats are designed for you.
DeMarini's R&D department aren't the geeks in lab coats, but the
hardcore, mad scientists who still love to jack 500 foot
bombs. DeMarini has spent the last 12 months designing their
new line of bats. They have emerged from their labs revealing the
new TR3 F.L.O. Composite and the X10 Alloy.
Since every hitter is different, DeMarini has designed a line of
bats with something for everyone. Whether you're looking to go yard
or seeking the gap, DeMarini has a bat for each purpose. Balanced or
end-loaded, composite or alloy, check out their new line and see
exactly what an insane dedication to performance produces.
WTDXVDC13 Voodoo BBCOR Baseball Bat - New for 2013
Wicked and sinister with a deathly stare...this bat will haunt the
other team's nightmares. An X10 Alloy Barrel joined with the TR3
F.L.O. composite handle, DeMarini conjured up on of the highest
performing bats on the market with the Voodoo. With the perfect
amount of end load, this bat feels like you've harnessed the power
of a thousand black suns to sacrifice the soul of the fastball.
Time to turn up the heat and light up the scoreboard. X10 Alloy was
designed with a proprietay blend of alloy agents creating an
aluminum with the most optimal strength possible. This unique
formation of aluminum allows the thickness of the barrel walls to be
fine tuned, allowing for the ultimate sweet spot. DeMarini's X10
alloy is so strong, it adheres to the BBCOR or any other standard
while still maintaining the thinnest, lightest, and strongest bats
possible with the sweet spot you're craving.
TR3 F.L.O Composite.
The new TR3 F.L.O (Fused Layer Optimized) Composite is a cutting
edge formation of the TR3 Composite. This naturally chaotic, random
fusing of carbon fibers creates a more compact carbon which enables
the design to be stronger and lighter than ever before. This stonger
design allows the weight to be distributed evenly throughout the
bat. A more balanced bat produces faster bat speeds so you can
generate even more power. Chaotic design, chaotic speed, chaotic
power - unleash total anarchy.
This ain't no halo.
DeMarini's Taper Ring Technology makes their bats as mean on the
inside as they are on the outside. The critical placement of this
taper ring inside the barrel allows DeMarini to maintain monstrous
pop while still meeting the BBCOR standards. This year, the Taper
Ring has been moved closer to the handle to increase the swing
weight and enhance the sweet spot. The bat can actually feel
lighter, which gives your swign the power to send balls crashing
through the pearly gates, landing at the feet of the baseball gods.
As if it needed an exclamation
One of the finest ingredients in the wicked potion comma, the
Ion V End Cap was designed for the aluminum barrels of the Voodoo
line. Two different materials end cap. One layer holds the barrel
stiff while the other transfers energy from the barrel to the ball
in the form of 400 ft of pure, over the fence evil.
Bat Size Guide-Help Selecting Baseball and Fastpitch Bat Size
The bat size that best fits you will be one that is comfortable, easy to swing and allows you to produce the greatest bat speed and power.
To obtain your optimum bat select a bat that is not too long/heavy or too short/light.
A bat too short won't provide maximum power or barrel length, while a bat too long will be too difficult to handle and will also slow bat speed reducing power.
First begin with selecting a length. If possible use the previous bat you swung to help establish a length. For example if you used a 30 in bat and now feel that you are ready to move on to a larger bat a 31 in could be the next step.
You can also use the chart below for the average bat lengths based on your height, weight and age.
The chart below is just a guide as each player's strength and bat speed differ.
While the chart below was primariy designed for baseball, we have found it works fairly well for fastpitch bat sizing too. For fasptitch, however, refer to only the player height and discregard the player weight. Also, see notes at the bottom for additional notes on fastpitch bat sizing.

Selecting The Appropriate Bat Weight
The bat weight is equally as important as the length in selecting the optimum bat size.
Bat weight differs greatly depending on the age range and is usually referred to as the "drop" when associated with the length and weight.
The drop is the difference between the length of the bat and the weight of the bat. For example if a bat is 30 in. long and weighs 20 oz. then the drop is 10. The larger the drop, the lighter the bat.
The average bat drop can best be broken down by age range.
Youth Bats (21/4 Inch barrel diameter)
Average - drop 12
Power Hitter - drop 10
Senior League "Big Barrel" Bats (25/8 to 23/4 Inch barrel Diameter)
For ages 12 and under, drop 10 is the average
Over age 12 range from -10oz to -5oz depending on the players strength and bat speed.
*Check with your local league or organization to find out if there are any restrictions on barrel diameter or bat weight.
High School/College Bats
All high school or college bats are drop 3
Freshmen/Sophmore High School players: 31 and 32 ich are the most popular
Junior/Senior in High School players: 32 and 33 inch are the most popular
College Players: 33 is the most popular size.
Fastpitch Softball Bats
Age 13 and under, average drop - 11oz or 12oz.
Age 14 to 16, drop 10
Age 16 and up, Drop 8oz to 10oz. Drop 10 is still the most popular drop, but some power hitters prefer a drop 9.
*Bat Weight is also a preference. There are some over 14 players that prefer and use lighter bats. This can vary depending on their strength or type of hitter they are (power vs slap hitter).Back to Top
