We have hit with every DeMarini Voodoo bat since 2015. Cage and game hitting as well as exit speeds and direct player feedback compromise this 2020 DeMarini Voodoo Review. The bat is considered a light swinging, entry level performance baseball bat in the single piece aluminum space. The Voodoo One, not to be confused with the hybrid Voodoo Balanced, comes in BBCOR, USA and USSSA. Players looking for a value deal or big and strong players that want a very light swing in an ultra stiff bat will like the 2020 DeMarini Voodoo One. The USA bat is a real bright spot, the BBCOR version is average and the USSSA bat is avoidable.
Generally, our hitters like the light swing of the Voodoo One. Parents like the light price point of the Voodoo One. In terms of a great feel very few say the Voodoo One has it.

Generally, our hitters like the light swing of the Voodoo One. Parents like the light price point of the Voodoo One. In terms of a great feel very few say the Voodoo One has it. The barrel isn’t very big either. Still, despite its short comings, it makes up for it in a good size offering, legit performance if you square it up and an affordable price.
Generally, those who are very serious about youth competitive baseball won’t find the Voodoo very exciting. It’s hand ringing nature and smaller barrel aren’t things people praise in the dugout. On the other end of the spectrum, serious college players tend to prefer single piece bats with an endload. The 2020 Voodoo One is a single piece bat but it swings light. That said, there are some players in the NCAA who like its stiff feel and bat speed. As are there youth players and parents who like it sound, performance and price to make it their bat of choice. The most recommendable bat of the bunch is the drop 5 USA version which serves as a great cold weather bat or BP stick for the growing youth competitive player.
Compared to the 2019 Voodoo One the only change is the change in end cap to a "ReACTION END CAP". In effect, the end cap is supposed to hone in the swing weight and help with some barrel performance. Our expectation is it won't change the on field or general sentiment at all when compared to the 2019. In other words, we would not buy a 2020 Voodoo One until you can no longer find the 2019 versions on discount.
We have now spent considerable time both in the cage and during games with the 2018 DeMarini Voodoo One balanced.
There are several single piece aluminum bats on the market—not many have an MSRP of $249 for BBCOR. Some, like the CAT 8 and Velo price out well over that and, we think, rightfully so. Those bats have done a reamarkable job in the single piece space with a big barrel and strong swing. The most similar bat in terms of pricing and make up to the 2020 Voodoo One is the 2020 Slugger Omaha. However, when comparing user reviews, the Omaha, to put it mildly, wipes the floor in BBCOR, USA and USSSA.
2020 Louisville Slugger Omaha Review: Value. Value. Value. After hitting with every version of the 2020 Slugger Omaha, we are confident it will continue to dominate the value purchase realm of all baseball. It serves as a legit option for novice and expert alike in the BBCOR, USSSA and USA space with a reasonable price point most parents are willing to pay. Our favorite, if we had to choose, is the drop 5 USA Omaha. With the exception of the 33 and 34-inch BBCOR, 2020 Omahas are built with a light swing in mind. Those two BBCOR versions are intentionally built for a heavy swing. Our Score 9.8/10 (BBCOR); 9.5/10(USSSA); 9.8/10 (USA).Price Check
The barrel of the Voodoo One is the same material that makes up the very popular 2020 Voodoo. That bat is a two piece hybrid with an terribly similar name. Remember, the ONE means its a one piece. The other piece on the 2020 Voodoo One is the end cap which, as we stated above, is upgraded from the 2019 version to be a bit more durable and lighter.
