DeMarini has not just redesigned it based on its previous version but they have actually added some new unique features making this bat great for baseball players. This baseball bat has already received tons of positive feedback from the buyers and though the bat was released in 2015. It is still killing it out there giving a tough fight to its competitors.

Review Summary

The DeMarini Voodoo Overlord BBCOR Baseball Bat is not an ordinary baseball bat. It has a ton of amazing features. DeMarini has paid alot of attention in improvising small aspects of this baseball bat such as its new length to weight ratio. Most of the baseball manufacturers do not usually care about the length to weight ratio of their baseball bat. They forget how important it is to have a good length to weight ratio. A good length to weight ratio makes handling of baseball bat more comfortable while delivering more power.

Product Description

DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT has a perfect (-3) length to weight ratio. Also for power Hitting and smooth swings, the baseball bat’s barrel diameter should be appropriate. The 2 5/8 inches barrel diameter of this bat is exactly what a barrel size should be. Moving away from small features, the most useful feature of this baseball bat is its D-Fusion handle technology. Vibrations while hitting can be completely eliminated by making use of this technology. Most of the baseball players will tell you how the amount of vibration affects their batting performance.

Vibrations make hitting difficult as they interfere with the handling. Keeping this thing in mind, Voodoo Overlord FT was made with the D Fusion technology. It does its job well. Looks wise too this Bat won’t fail to impress the players. This bad boy comes with a red glossy finish along with a black handle, thus making each other pop out.

Apart from the above mentioned features, this baseball bat also comes with an ION-V end cap. ION-V end cap makes sure to provide a large sweet spot by proper chanel of energy transfer and movement. Sweets spots are very important when we talk about baseball bats. The larger the sweet spot, the better the baseball bat is.

Most of the baseball bats do not provide big sweet spots, thus limiting the player with very less options while hampering their accurate hits. The DeMarini 2015 Voodoo Overlord FT (-3) is an exception to this. Its sweet spot is considerably large while not compromising in its comfort and quality. Looking at its reviews, this is one of the most important factor of this baseball bat and it provides a justice to its hype.

Another great technology used in this baseball bat is its RCK knob. RCK knob makes sure to provide a firm grip. This is also one of the the most neglected feature by most of the baseball bat manufacturers. A baseball bat that doesn’t fit perfectly in hands is of no use. If a player cannot hold a Bat properly, how is he supposed to hit power shots?

However, with the RCK knob, a player can hold this Bat comfortably for a long time. It won’t make the player feel weary or uncomfortable. And at the last but not the least feature, its barrel is made of strong X12 aluminium alloy. It won’t face any dents and won’t snap off with power hitting swings.

Why you should buy DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT (-3) BBCOR Baseball Bat?

Well, all those fancy words mentioned above are useless if this baseball bat is not easy to use. However, the Voodoo Overlord FT 2015 is devoid of that. Those fancy words do work as they are supposed to. This bat is a mixture of power and ease of use. It doesn’t feel heavy and it won’t exhaust the player at all. Right at the first handling of Bat, a player can immediately feel the difference as compared to other bats.
