2017 DeMarini Voodoo One USSSA Drop 10
Find Similar Bats

The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo One USSSA drop 10 is a 2 3/4 barrel built with a balanced swing and a stiff single piece alloy. The bat is comparable to others in its class, like the Rawlings VELO and Slugger Omaha. The USSSA Voodoo One is an entry-level performance bat in exit speeds versus bats two times its price. However, the bat's feel isn't what most kids hope for---especially if you see fastpitch speed. The stiff single piece aluminum will wring the hands in the event you mishit.

Find Similar Bats

The 2017 BBCOR Voodoo One is DeMarini's first iteration of the model line. It was adapted from the Voodoo Insane line which swung quite heavy. But for 2017, they took some mass out of the barrel to give it a light swing but with that familiar stiff feel. It now competes with other light swinging single piece bats like the Rawlings VELO and Slugger Omaha.
