Our hitters like the single-piece feel and the light swing. They do wish the barrel profile was larger and the bat didn't hurt as much on mishits, but the better the hitter is the less that stuff seems to matter.
The 2022 Demarini Voodoo One is a BBCOR only bat that is a single-piece alloy built with a light swing and smaller barrel profile. But, the light swing and good sound can create some great exit velocities with the right hitter. The bat is not better than the BBCOR test, but many new hitters using a light swinging BBCOR bat are finding the swing weight ideal. There are plenty of bats that fit this mold, but the Voodoo One is clearly the leader of pack in terms of overall appeal.
The only change from 2021 to 2022 is a new endcap on the 2022 Demarini Voodoo One. The bat doesn't feel much different (if any) from previous years) so we aren't sure what the point was of changing the end cap. But, nonetheless, the 2022 Voodoo One has a new end cap. The bat, effectley, has not changed from its 2017 release.
The 2022 Voodoo One is a single-piece alloy bat with a light swing and a smallish barrel. Here is the writeup from DeMarini:

Introducing the 2022 Voodoo One (-3) BBCOR Baseball Bat, the bat built for an unrivaled combination of elite swing speed and power. 2021’s hottest bat in BBCOR, Voodoo One returns its signature X14 Alloy Barrel, revered for soul-crushing performance and maximum pop, and its new paint job marks the homecoming for Skully — a DeMarini legend.
