New for 2014! The Half + Half bat that put DeMarini on the map returns for another season! The DeMarini Vexxum has been crushing the ball for years, and this season it's as mean as ever! Once the first of its kind as far as two-piece bats go, this year's Vexxum combines an X10 Alloy barrel with a C6 Composite handle. The X10 Alloy used on the barrel is finely-tuned and shaped to create the thinnest possible walls. This keeps the weight down and opens up the sweet spot for unbelievable performance! The C6 Composite handle works in unison with the alloy barrel and is specifically tailored for the single wall construction of the Vexxum. C6 features a wider composite weave, which in turn gives it more flex and unparalleled trampoline when the bat makes contact with the ball! The Vexxum is about as balanced as a bat can get, and is absolutely ideal for players looking to improve their swing speed this season! If you want mad pop and a light swing weight, this Vexxum is for you! DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The Vexxum is approved for play in Little League, Babe Ruth, Dixie, Pony, AABC, and USSSA. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

What do you think about the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXL Youth?
Have A Question?
Ask our community of experts and receive an answer within 24 hours.Ask Question
My son is 10 years old and he weighs 85 lb. and is 4'7. Would the new Vexxum in a 30" 18 oz., be a good choice for him? He is a good contact hitter with some power. He loves the bat.
Asked by chris on Apr 16, 2014
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL) is a good bat for a contact hitter like your son. I would suggest a 29" 17 oz. or even a 30" 18 oz. Either size would work well for your son.
· Apr 16, 2014
I am looking to purchace either the Vexxum or the Easton XL3 for my son who is in 8U and is a power hitter currently using a TPX Omaha with great results, which bat would you recommend?
Asked by David on Apr 16, 2014
The Easton XL3: (YB13X3) would be a really great choice if you are looking for a bat that will provide a lot of power. The Easton XL3 will be a one-piece alloy design and will provide a lot of great speed because it will incorporate THT100 Scandium Alloy. It will also be a little bit stiffer, and this is typically preferred by power hitters. If your son was a big fan of the TPX Omaha, the Easton XL3 will be fairly similar. However, the Easton XL3 will be slightly end-loaded. The weight distribution will be a little bit heavier towards the end of the barrel, but generally this is also preferred by players who consider themselves power hitters. The power brigade series by Easton was designed for power hitters, and I think the Easton XL3 would be a great option to go with.
· Apr 16, 2014
My son currently swings an older Vexxum and I am looking to upgrade. He's more of a contact hitter so balance is most important to me. Which is better balanced; the Vexxum or CF5?
Asked by Tom on Apr 16, 2014
Both the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL) and the DeMarini CF5 (DXCFL) will be very well balanced models and should be a good option for your player. The main difference would be the barrel material. The Vexxum would be closest to what they are using because it features an alloy barrel. The barrel of the CF5 is made out of a composite material that will have a different feel than alloy. Rather than a ping on an alloy bat, the composite barrel will have more of a thud or a crack and will have a different feedback.
· Apr 16, 2014

Is this a good bat for fastpitch softball 12U,12 year old power hitter? Let me know or what do you recommend?
Asked by bernie on Apr 04, 2014
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL) is a youth baseball bat. It can't be used in fastpitch softball. We recommend an end loaded, fastpitch bat such as the 2014 DeMarini CF6 Insane (DXCFI) for a power hitter.

My son is a good contact hitter but has trouble with strength and pop. Will the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL) be better for him or the 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD (DXVDL) Youth? He's 11 55" and 80 lbs.
Asked by Joe Baker on Mar 17, 2014
Both are great bats. The 2014 DeMarini Voodoo OVERLORD (DXVDL) Youth will be slightly lighter then the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL). The Voodoo Overlord will also have a higher performing composite handle and alloy barrel, in addition to the D-Fusion handle which redirects power back to the barrel.
· Mar 17, 2014
Is this bat good for a 13 year old girl?
Asked by Lish on Mar 17, 2014
Assuming that she is playing fastpitch softball, this 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL) Youth bat would not be a good option. This is a Youth Baseball bat, and in that case, she would need a bat in the following link: http://www.justbats.com/products/softball%20bats~fastpitch/. But it totally depends on a combination of whether she is playing baseball or softball and what her league requires as to whether this is a good choice or not.

Which would you recommend the DeMarini Vexxum or the Easton XL3?
Asked by mike on Mar 15, 2014
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL) would be a better choice for a contact hitter since it is a balanced bat. If the player is more of a power hitter, I would suggest the Easton XL3 because it is an end loaded model.

Hi there, my son has a DeMarini Vendetta. We were thinking of upgrading to the Vexxum, same size and weight (31"/19 oz). Is it worth the upgrade? He loves the Vendetta and hits very well with it.
Asked by Akappell on Mar 03, 2014
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum Youth (DXVXL) will have an upgraded alloy compared to the DeMarini Vendetta Youth (DXVTL). The X10 Alloy on the DeMarini Vexxum will perform better than the SC4 alloy on the older Vendetta.

· Feb 27, 2014
My son has been using the DeMarini Vendetta model VCL11. It was a hand me down from a friend and he loved the feel and pop of the bat however it has cracked and was looking at the Vexxum or the C5 LE. He is more contact hitter. He really liked the feel of the Vendetta with no stinging of the hands.
Asked by jaybird on Feb 17, 2014
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL Youth) is the most similar to the DeMarini Vendetta. Both are two-piece bats with the composite handle and alloy barrel. The Vexxum and the DeMarin CF5 LE are both designed for a contact hitter.

I have the Easton XL2. I'm 11 years old, 5'6 120 pounds. I'm a power hitter. Should I get this bat or is my XL2 the same? Which do you recommend?
Asked by Lex on Feb 16, 2014
The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXL) and the Easton XL2 (YB13X2) youth models are similar in design. they are both hybrid models featuring composite handles and alloy barrels. However, the XL2 features an end loaded feel, whereas, the Vexxum features a more balanced design. Generally, end loaded bats are more recommended for power hitters and balanced models are preferred by contact hitters.

Any restrictions on use related to temperature?
Asked by Chris on Oct 02, 2013
We do not recommend using any non-wood bat, including the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXL Youth, in temperatures below 60Â°F (16Â°C). In those temperatures, the ball becomes much more dense and could damage or shorten the useful life of your bat. Composite can crack, and alloy can dent, so neither material is proven to be better in cold weather, unfortunately.

My son is 8 1/2, 54 inches, and 92 lbs. I am leaning toward the 30" for this season. Would finding a -12 or -13 help with the longer bat? I was also looking at the Rawlings Plasma, how would it stack up to this bat?
Asked by Robert on May 11, 2013
Since you will be going up in size taking some weight off with a -12 or a -13 will help him adjust to a bigger bat. The Rawlings Plasma and the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXL Youth will be very similar in performance. The Vexxum will be a better choice because of the two-piece design allowing the bat to flex, and it has more of a balanced feel.
