DeMarini releases a whole slew of bat lines every year in baseball. Their top shelf bat, for 2015, is the ever famous two-piece balanced composite CF7 (which we love).

Their other top shelf bat, but end loaded, is the two-piece hybrid Voodoo Overlord FT (which we love). They also have a value option in the high end performance two piece arena named the NVS Vexxum (which we love).

Quick Review

Their other top shelf bat, but end loaded, is the two-piece hybrid Voodoo Overlord FT (which we love). They also have a value option in the high end performance two piece arena named the NVS Vexxum (which we love).

The less heralded yet noteworthy fourth bat in the DeMarini 2015 line up is the Insane. This bat serves as the only single piece bat in their baseball line up and, like last year, is a middle weighted SC4 alloy with a solid construction and knock down power.

Recommendations

On a related note, end caps, these days, are the frontier for hype in the industry. From welded composites to end caps that go 1/4 the way down the barrel to inverted, shaped and multi-composite flux-capacitor type names it seems like the hype train is alive and well. The Insane’s claim is the DeMarini designed end cap reverberates power back into the barrel.

2015 DeMarini Insane Review

We do agree that the end cap keeps the power in the barrel but we feel pretty confident in claiming the vast majority of end caps do this too. But, none of those end caps look nearly as sweet as this:

We also used our digital calipers to measure the actual size of the barrel on the 2 5/8, 2 1/4 and BBCOR. In the 2 5/8 category the barrel is as big they come–it is as large as the senior league Easton XL3.

The BBCOR barrel measures at 2.62 inches and the youth barrel measures at 2.24 inches. Both basically on the money for allowable diameter (although a handful of bats we test are over their limit).

Research: 2015 DeMarini Insane

2015 DeMarini Insane Review

2015 Insane Construction

There are plenty of deciding factors on why to acquire the 2015 Insane:

  • Its 2 5/8 SL model is the largest one piece aluminum barrel on the market
  • The power you can generate from a one piece aluminum stick is, in the right hands, awesome
  • The price point is right in line with a lot of people’s budget
  • The DeMarini brand, which stands behind its products, always produces quality bats
  • The tactile layer of the grip makes the sting of one piece bats manageable
  • Those who should shy away:  those who prefer two piece bats; want to spend more money or want to spend less money; need or prefer a bat with a lighter swing weight.

The Insane in the right hands are bomb droppers. Hitters who appreciate the feel of a one piece stick and a little rattle on mishits will enjoy this bat. And their parents will love the price point.
