The 2024 Victus Vandal Lev3 is a single-piece alloy bat with a good-sized barrel and a light swing. The addition of the sting-dampening knob that put the Marucci CAT on the line is intriguing, and could the Lev3 in the hunt. Single-piece alloy bats have struggled in the USSSA space but if any bat has led the way it is the Marucci CAT and its sting-dampening tech. That spells promise for the 2024 Victus Vandal Lev3. Single-piece alloys with a lights swing area are also on the rise in BBCOR and we'd love to see the Lev3 come in with a durable option that competed well against a bat like the Voodoo One.
Hitters who like a single-piece feel and a mid-to-light swing gravitate toward the Vandal line. The addition of the sting-dampening knob should help with those averse to sting. We expect the bat to keep true to the Vandal intent of a high-performing single piece with a light swing and a more reasonable price than a bat like the Marucci CAT X Composite.
The maror difference between the 2022 Vandal II and the 2024 Vandal Lev3 is the sting-dampening technology found in the knob of the Lev3. If you're familiar with Marucci (who owns Victus), they've used a rubber sting dampening in the knob of the Marucci CAT lines. The Victus Vandal Lev3 now uses that knob and that is a new feature in the 2024 Vandal lineup.
The 2024 Victus Vandal Lev3: - Constructed with VXP aluminum alloy - Carbon composite barrel end reduces weight from the end - Ergonomic handle taper offers a custom fit based on player feedback - Ringless barrel design with multi-variable wall thickness creates a thinner, more flexible sweet spot - Incorporates vibration-reducing knob technology to minimize sting and unwanted feedback from off-center hits.
