2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel

by Dad - May 12, 2013

Pros: My 7 almost 8 year old has the 28" 17.5 oz. He has been hitting bombs with this bat if it's not over the outfielder's head the infield can't handle it because it's coming off the bat too fast. This bat seems to be a better fit than the 28" 18 oz. XL3 & the 28" 18 oz. S1 he put back in the closet for next season.

Cons: After 1 day of practice and 2 days of tournament play it's pretty scratched up, but we don't have a bat boy the crazy kids just throw it to the dugout.

Review Summary

2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel
4.083333 based on 12 ratings. 12 user reviews.

New for 2014! The Half + Half bat that put DeMarini on the map returns for it's first season in Junior Big Barrel play! The DeMarini Vexxum has been crushing the ball for years, and this season it's as mean as ever with its BIGGEST barrel 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 Junior Big Barrel bat is for you! DeMarini: Born Hardcore! The Vexxum features the USSSA 1.15 BPF Stamp. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel

by OP Dad - Jul 02, 2013

Pros: I'm a big fan of alloy bats for kids ages 4-8 even though they aren't as durable but they have much better pop. When I found out this had a composite handle and alloy barrel it was just what I was waiting for. I had the DeMarini CF4 and it was useless for my son who is 6. He seemed like he just didn't swing hard enough for it to work correctly and seemed dead. I also have the composite S1 Easton and the XL3. I will not be using them again. The S1 is very light and has no pop unless you swing hard enough and hit it exactly on the sweet spot. This bat is great is great it shoots off the bat and has a composite handle so the kids wont be afraid to swing hard. I will post more after the Dizzy Dean World Series. I purchased the 26" 15.5 oz. bat for my son who is six. For those who want a great bat that don't want to spend the money the Worth Lithium Prodigy (only the red one) has GREAT pop but isn't that durable. Justbats.com is great to deal with very fast shipping.

Cons: None yet

2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel

by Tom - Jul 19, 2013

Pros: My 6 year old (48lbs) playing coach pitch tournament ball got this bat and it has been fantastic. Went from hitting hard infield shots to consistently putting the ball deep into the outfield. Took a little getting used to with the difference in "swing feel" coming from a full composite Easton. Having the aluminum end helps generate power for younger players who can't swing hard/fast enough yet to make the full composite really work like it's intended to.

Cons: Not really a con...but $180 was hard to justify for a 26" bat that he will outgrow soon. Hate the paint job, but that's just personal taste. Wish it came in a solid color.

Pros: I just bought the demo bat and my son is enjoying the large sweet spot. Every time he hits the barrel, the ball just explodes off the bat.

Cons: None so far!

My son is 6 years old, 4 feet 3 inches tall, and weighs 70 pounds. He's a big, solid boy. What size/weight bat would you recommend?

Based on your son's height and weight, we would recommend a 28" bat. The -10.5 length to weight ratio of the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXY) Junior Big Barrel bat seems like a good fit, but you could also consider a -10 model. Check out the 28" -10 Junior Big Barrel models we currently have in stock: http://goo.gl/tFnWnJ

How does this bat compare up to the old Marucci Cat 5? The old Cat 5 is the best coach pitch bat I've found for my 7 year old, but unfortunately it cracked. I am trying to decide between this bat or the MAKO Junior Big Barrel.

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum (DXVXY) features a two-piece hybrid design. This means that is has an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The CAT 5 featured a one-piece fully alloy design. The Easton MAKO also features a one-piece design but it is full composite. This means that the MAKO will have to go through a break in period but once it is broken in, it will continue to get hotter over time. Bats will alloy barrels (like the Vexxum and CAT 5) will be hot right out of the wrapper and will not require a break in time.

I am trying to decide between the mako, xl3 and Vexxum for my soon to be 7yr old.? which is the best?

Those are all very good bats. The Easton MAKO will be the highest performing because of the composite barrel and extended barrel.

I got my son this bat last week. He crushed the ball at the Coach Pitch tournament. He took Tournament MVP. This weekend we have a Machine Pitch Tournament. Speed is 42MPH. I noticed this bat is not designed for that kind of speed. What would you recommend that is close to this same bat?

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel is not made to withstand speeds exceeding 40 MPH. The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXR Senior League is a half oz. heavier and a smaller, 2 5/8" barrel that is designed to withstand higher velocity pitching in kid and machine pitch.

64676

Is this a good option for a Machine Pitch league?

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel is intended for Coach Pitch only, and is not built to withstand higher velocity pitching in Kid or Machine Pitch. The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXR Senior League is intended to withstand higher velocities, and would be a great option for Machine Pitch.

57374

Is there a break-in for this particular bat?

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel bat features an X10 Alloy barrel and does not require a break-in period. It is hot right out of the wrapper.

56352

I noticed there were a couple of different models of this bat. I am looking at this model bat for my 6 year old son who is in coach pitch, using the regulation 9" hardball. Is the -10.5 oz model made for the coach pitch? Wondering because this model comes in a 30" which is unusual for smaller kids in coach pitch.

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel is designed for Coach Pitch. Any bat listed as Junior Big Barrel on our web site will be designed for players in Coach Pitch leagues, where pitch speeds do not exceed 40 mph. And this is the sole Junior Big Barrel model we currently have on the web site that offers a 30" option.

54494

Is this the best bat on the market in a Junior Big Barrel?

No, the 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel is a great bat, but there will be no best bat for Junior Big Barrel, as they all have to meet the same USSSA standard.

54133

Is the barrel aluminum? And when will you have a 32 inch model?

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel bat does has the X10 Alloy barrel. And, unfortunately, this model is not produced in the 32 inch option.

52872

Is this bat legal in kid-pitch leagues?

The 2014 DeMarini Vexxum: DXVXY Junior Big Barrel bat is designed for Coach Pitch leagues, where pitches do not exceed 40 mph, and could dent in a kid-pitch league. To determine what bats are legal for your particular league, it is always best to check with a league representative.
