2021 Victus Nox Review

August 16, 2020 | by Bat Digest Review Team | @BatDigest

The 2021 Victus Nox is a hybrid BBCOR Bat. It complements the Victus Vandal—which is a single-piece aluminum bat built with a light swing. Of all the data we gathered on the NOX, we found the swing weight lighter than we expected. For the 33-inch we were sent, the swing weight was 9150, which is about 50 points under the average 33-inch BBCOR. Bats like The Goods swing in the 9300 to 9400 range. The Nox should be considered an average or balanced swinging hybrid

Generally, mid range swinging two-piece hybrid bats perform much like the Voodoo or, these days, The Goods. It also uses the same tapered barrel wall found in other bats like the Vandal, CAT 8, Axe Hyerwhip, Rawlings VELO, and 5150s.

Victus added weight to the barrel to give it a heavier MOI. But, the marketing, with all respect, is the classic bat industry. It says it’s a balanced swing and a balanced approach. But, it isn’t. It’s all very confusing.

We find the bat to be average swinging—not end loaded. It is more balanced than it is end-loaded or hand loaded. At least, based on the 33-inch we were sent directly by Victus.

BBCOR Nox Recommendations
2021 Victus Nox Review

The bat is built for the average to good high school player that wants a big barrel, great feel and hot out of the wrapper performance. The connective piece should convince most that every hit is a bomb and save the hands from vibration.

Comparable Bats

If you want a balanced hybrid bat, the best place to start looking is at DeMarini’s Voodoo Balanced. The Voodoo has dominated the light swinging two-piece hybrid bat space for going on a decade. Now, as the Voodoo morphs into The Goods, and as the Voodoo name gets shelved, we look forward to seeing how a bat like the Nox works out.

Before we are confusing, the 2019 DeMarini Voodoo Balanced is often referred to as just the 2019 DeMarini Voodoo.

Our feedback on the 2017 Marucci CAT 7 connect is derived from 3 hours of use among several different hitters

2020 Vandal
See the Vandal Review

Our 2020 Victus Vandal review comes after hitting with the bat more than 200 times with 3 different hitters. In short, the 2020 Vandal’s inner barrel design and exit speeds make it a legit single piece aluminum bat with a premium price, great look and reasonable enough performance to serve the serious hitter. The barrel size is good but not functionally bigger than other comparable bats like the Solo. We think the 2020 Victus Vandal price is more than its performance and design deserves but, not more than it’s vibe and unique Victus brand should get.

2021 Nox Construction

The Voodoo Nox is a two-piece hybrid bat. Meaning, the handle of the bat is composite (plastic), and the barrel is aluminum. Hybrid bats are typical. Unique to the NOX, though, is its variable wall design. The inside of the barrel has different levels of thickness. The variable wall thickness, as they call it, allows to spread out the length of the sweet spot, keep the swing weight down, and extend the length of the barrel. Several other bats do this, too, including the Marucci CAT 8 line of bats as well as the VELO from Rawlings.

Oddly, the NOX claims to have added more mass to the barrel. So, it intends to be an end-loaded bat, not a light swinging one. We will be able to tell better when we get one in hand here in the coming weeks.
