Victus V Cut bats are wood bats made for the pros but, for a few reasons, didn’t pass the final cut. This may include problems like a miscut size or cosmetic blemish. The performance is the same and there are no structural imperfections in the Victus V Cut bats. Our experience with the bat is documented in the following Victus V Cut review.
As the 2nd largest MLB wood bat producer, Victus has clearly figured something out in terms of high quality maple bats. Our hitters liked the pro type feel of the Victus V Cut bats as well as the price point compared to a Pro Reserve bat. In terms of quality and use we’d recommend the V Cut… Jump to the full review.

As the 2nd largest MLB wood bat producer, Victus has clearly figured something out in terms of high quality maple bats. Our hitters liked the pro type feel of the Victus V Cut bats as well as the price point compared to a Pro Reserve bat. In terms of quality and use we’d recommend the V Cut bats over the Pro Model—unless you are particularly concerned about specific sizing requirements or perfect cosmetics (although, frankly, we couldn’t find the cosmetic blemish in our V Cut).
It’s hard to differentiate between wood bats. No company, it turns out, has a patent on growing trees. Maple bats dominate the MLB game and are creeping into the more amateur ranks as well (although birch, ash and bamboo do really well, too). Back in July of this year, a columnist for the New York Times reached out to us, looking for insight on V-Cut bats. We had hit them just a few weeks before and she was put on the scent because they had so much success in the MLB these last couple years. They obviously make great bats, but what do they do with all the bats that are perfect in everything but a cosmetic blem? In short, they call them V-Cuts and sell them to us mortals. Of all the wood bats we hit in 2020, the Victus V-Cuts were our favorite for their quality, price point and muscle.
If you play in an wood bat league and need a high quality wood bat–that something like 1 out of 5 MLB players prefer—then the Victus V Cut is a great bet. It isn’t ‘cheap’ for a bat that might break. But, in terms of quality and an outside veneer the pros like you can not do better.
A lot of other wood bat companies have a blemish pile that gets sold. You can check places like Marucci for their pro model bats.
Victus V-Cut bats are pro model bats built with the highest quality of maple wood and the same veneer the pros get. However, they do lack in some sort of cosmetic (non functional) blemish. Sometimes, too, they are cut to the wrong specifications.
You don’t get many custom type options with the V Cuts. They don’t come in a variety of sizes and their availability is never guaranteed. But, they usually have a good offering in a decent looking color.
Exepct to find the V-Cut bats in the same types of sizing you’ll find most high level wood bats. They come on the half size often (like a 32.5) as well as a focus around a drop 3 weight to length ratio. But, it is wood, and they are much harder to dial in than aluminum or composite bats.
