2023 Victus Nox 2 Review

The 2023 Victus Nox 2 is a two-piece hybrid bat with a heavy swing weight that comes in a BBCOR and USSSA drop 10, 8, and 5. We are fans and a lot of hitters who want a durable bat but still an excellent feel, as well as can handle a bit of load, really like the Nox. The Nox 2 is a lot like the original Nox, so we expect it to do well and get good reviews across the board. We think the BBCOR version and the drop 8 in USSSA are stars.

Models Overview

The 2023 Victus NOX 2 is a big-time bat for big hitters. This is not for the faint of heart. Those who want a light swing and a big barrel should look elsewhere. But if you can handle some mass and enjoy some of the highest swing weights for its length, then take a close look at the NOX.


General Recommendations

Bats whose BBCOR and USSSA versions serve a different market (a big hitter for BBCOR and a balanced drop 10) often struggle to make sense in the market and get the traction they deserve. The Nox 2 may fall trap here. In BBCOR and reduction 5/8 USSSA, it’s an endloaded bat, serving the big hitter who wants hot out-of-the-wrapper alloy performance. The younger kid who wants speed can try the drop 10, but we think they’ll be at least slightly disappointed. If you’re a big hitter and enjoy a big hybrid bat in the BBCOR or drop 5/8 space, then the Nox 2 is your ticket to ride.

Reviews By Model

Comparable Bats

Two piece hybrid bats that have a big swing are found in the Select PWR form Slugger and The Goods from DeMarini.

Previous Bats

The major change for the 2021 NOX is the upgrade in the connection piece. It appears to be a stiffer feel with a little more durability. But, time will only tell if as this bat gets in more hitters hands.

Construction

The NOX 2 is a two-piece hybrid bat with a carbon composite handle and military-grade aluminum barrel. It uses the 2SIX connection system to reduce vibrations and increase energy transfer. The barrel is ringless and made with multi-variable wall thicknesses for a flexible sweet spot. It has a pro-tapered handle for better control and a soft-touch grip for improved feel. It is USSSA 1.15 BPF certified and comes with a one-year warranty.
