After a couple of games, several hours in the cage, reading direct user reviews, discussing the bat with the manufacturer and major vendors we put together the following review on the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo Insane. Although the bat does come with a larger barrel then the Balanced Voodoo or One, the added end weight is a real hindrance to smaller hitters. If, then, you are stronger hitter looking for a hybrid bat then we are confident you’ll be happy with the 2018 Demarini Voodoo Insane.

As we mention above, the Voodoo Insane is an endloaded bat built for strong hitters that like the smoother feel of a two piece composite bat. Many collegiate players with schools that use DeMarini end up using the Voodoo Insane.

Smaller hitters that like a hybrid bat, but want a little mor… Jump to the full review.

2018 vs 2017 Voodoo Insane

The only difference between the 2017 and 2018 DeMarini Voodoo is the connective piece. In 2017 it was referred to as the D-Fusion handle. The 2018 model has a slimmed down version of the D-Fusion referred to as the 3 Fusion. Less bulk in the connective piece allows DeMarini to use the weight in other places to reinforce performance and durability without effecting swing weight. Otherwise, the bat is the same between 2017 and 2018. This year's model uses the same aluminum barrel and the same composite handle as is found in the 2017 Voodoo Balanced.​

Voodoo Insane

We have a week's worth of cage hitting with the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane. We've also exchanged emails with DeMarini discussing the upgrades and performance of this new bat.

Bat Review

Voodoo Overlord FT

Ever since Bryce Harper, at the age of 16, used the DeMarini VooDoo to smash a 502-foot home run at Tropicana, the two piece hybrid Voodoo bat has been, to say the least, a popular choice.

Comparable Bats

Hybrid bats are fairly common, but in the remarkably heavy realm they are less so. In 2018, there are two comparable bats to the Voodoo Insane.

Both Easton’s Z-Core XL and the Slugger 718 are comparable bats to the Voodoo Insane. Both are hybrid bats with end loads.

Also, we should note, Marucci’s CAT 7 connect is meant as a two piece composite bat with an endload. Our measurements didn’t show the Connect as heavy as a swing as the Voodoo Insane, but both should be considered end loaded bats. The connect, in fact, is the only bat on this short list that comes in something other than BBCOR.

Compare the CAT 7 Review

The 2018 Marucci CAT 7 is the same as the 2017 Marucci CAT 7. Marucci doesn’t hide this idea. They release their performance bats on a two year cycle.

2018 Voodoo Insane Construction

More background on the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo Insane can be found by referencing a few places. In particular, we relied heavily on our 2017 Demarini Voodoo Insane Review. As well, our bat reviews section might give you a few more ideas as to details behind hybrid bats.

Off this site we think past user reviews on Amazon are mildly helpful. As well, DeMarin’s bat site might be useful to find sizing and comparison options.

Bat Sizing Options

This heavier swinging bat is only released in a BBCOR version. This does make sense, as it really is a big, strong hitter’s bat. If there are non BBCOR players looking for a Voodoo then they should go for the drop 5 Voodoo Balanced.
