Cheapbats.com was fortunate to get an early opportunity to swing the 2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT. While taking hacks with this high-tech piece of modern sport technology, we noticed a little bit of heaviness in the barrel as far as balance is concerned. Our power hitters loved the extra meat in the bat however, and couldn’t find anything but complementary things to say about its ability to drive the ball with power. The X12 Alloy in the Voodoo Overlord baseball bat barrel is made of DeMarini’s hottest and most durable metal materials, making sure anyone who buys a DeMarini Overlord won’t feel like they got a lemon of a two-piece alloy bat.
Vibration in the 2015 Voodoo is virtually non existent, as the two-piece bats from DeMarini have not only evolved to make unpleasant feedback basically disappear, but they have also utilized it by redirecting any loss of energy back into the sweet spot of the barrel so that you create maximum force from every swing. The Demarini Voodoo baseball bat has had every detail on it gone through with a fine tooth comb. Starting with the ION-V End Cap, DeMarini has created it’s own vibration dampening design that sends energy directly to the barrel so you don’t lose any power. On the opposite end of the baseball bat is the DeMarini D-Fusion FT Handle. Just like the end cap, the handle drastically reduces any vibration while using the rebounding shock waves from the impact to force that energy back into the sweet spot of the barrel, making it one of the most technologically efficient bats in the game.
Always looking to find more power in their baseball bats, DeMarini employed a Flame Tempering treatment that melds the barrel and handle together for a stiffer bond and greater performance. Also worth mentioning is the RCK knob. The knob has a rounded edge that felt great, and prevented a lot of potential blisters from forming on the bottom hand. All and all, we at Cheapbats.com really like the new Overlord. It would be a great addition to any player who can swing a beefy barrel.
