2024 DeMarini Voodoo One Review

By Bat Digest

Updated July 20, 2023

2024 DeMarini Voodoo One Review Featured Image
The 2024 DeMarini Voodoo One is back (release 8/2/2023) with a new reinforced knob, a new warranty shape, and a barrel that looks like the previous versions of this very popular bat. Several TCU hitters immediately made this bat their gamer during the 2023 CWS, and if that isn't enough of a vote of confidence, then the idea that it is one of the best-selling bats across every outlet should push you over the top. Although a perfectly reasonable bat pick for the right player, we think the bat is generally overrated, yet we still give it a 9.6/10 initial rating because it has, with a reinforced knob, a chance to be a great bat. Our question is, will the $50 more from 2022, which makes it the most expensive single-piece alloy bat in baseball history, slow down its wild demand? Time will tell.

2024 Voodoo One Models

The internet has been on fire about the Voodoo One. Ever since, it's been impossible to find in stock, and many opportunists like to stockpile the bat and then sell it in the secondary market to make a few bucks on an unsuspecting dad with more money than time to research. That turns our repulsion meter more than we can describe professionally. The problem, initially lost in all the promoting, was that the knob broke off the bat more than it stayed on. It was too little too late when outlets started to report this. And the ridiculousness of the hype train that is the BBCOR bat world couldn't put out what they had set on fire. It's with that backdrop that DeMarini adds a reinforced metal knob to the 2024 Voodoo One. An explicit acknowledgment that the knob in the previous versions of the Voodoo was verifiable dog poop. But the bat is good. Don't get us wrong. The best on the planet and the right pick for the average BBCOR player? No, and no. But the Voodoo One swings light, has a top-performing barrel and hits the ball hard often despite having one of the most minor barrel profiles in the BBCOR space. It also looks fantastic. It's an excellent bat for a strong hitter who wants to go up an inch from the length they're used to and a reasonable to great pick for the kid who wants as much bat speed as possible.

General Recommendations

This bat can be suitable for a wide range of players. It is designed to cater to high school stars and gap-type college hitters who don't care about barrel profile and feel lighter is better. That's most certainly not everyone, but it's plenty. The bat's easy-swinging design and fortified metal compound knob make it a good choice for players who value control and, we can only hope and pray this early in the game, durability in their equipment. Our general recommendation is $399 for a single-piece alloy bat is more than you should pay. Other bats, like the Atlas, Marucci CAT X, or F5, Victus Lev3 Vandal, and many others, perform just as well as the Voodoo One for a measurable difference in price. But, if you want to swing what some of the kids who think they are cool swing, this might be it.

Previous Bats

Before we get in the knob, DeMarini is changing the warranty structure with unlimited replacements based on the purchase date (1 year) or the last date it was replaced (3 months). You can read more about that here. The fortified metal knob is the upgrade from the 2023 and 2022 versions of the Voodoo One. As you may have seen, the Voodoo One's knob fell off often enough without even serious provocation. DeMarini attacks this specific knob problem in an explicit acknowledgment that their previous bat knob was not worthy of a $350 bat. Now, the knew knob, apparently, is worthy a $400 bat.


The DeMarini Voodoo One (-3) BBCOR Bat has a barrel constructed with a one-piece alloy design known for its durability and performance. The bat's signature X14 Alloy Barrel delivers power and control, while the fortified knob, made from a compound of metal and composite materials, attempts durability and leverage during a swing. The bat also features a Tracer End Cap and a tapered construction to mitigate hand sting while stockpiling hits.
