Victus V Cut bats are wood bats made for the pros but, for a few reasons, didn’t pass the final cut. This may include problems like a miscut size or cosmetic blemish. The performance is the same and there are no structural imperfections in the Victus V Cut bats. Our experience with the bat is documented in the following Victus V Cut review.

As the 2nd largest MLB wood bat producer, Victus has clearly figured something out in terms of high quality maple bats.

Quick Review

As the 2nd largest MLB wood bat producer, Victus has clearly figured something out in terms of high quality maple bats. Our hitters liked the pro type feel of the Victus V Cut bats as well as the price point compared to a Pro Reserve bat. In terms of quality and use we’d recommend the V Cut bats over the Pro Model—unless you are particularly concerned about specific sizing requirements or perfect cosmetics (although, frankly, we couldn’t find the cosmetic blemish in our V Cut).

Why the Wood V Cut Won Wood Bat of the Year – Diamond Status

It’s hard to differentiate between wood bats. No company, it turns out, has a patent on growing trees. Maple bats dominate the MLB game and are creeping into the more amateur ranks as well (although birch, ash and bamboo do really well, too). Back in July of this year, a columnist for the New York Times reached out to us, looking for insight on V-Cut bats. We had hit them just a few weeks before and she was put on the scent because they had so much success in the MLB these last couple years. They obviously make great bats, but what do they do with all the bats that are perfect in everything but a cosmetic blem? In short, they call them V-Cuts and sell them to us mortals. Of all the wood bats we hit in 2020, the Victus V-Cuts were our favorite for their quality, price point and muscle.

Recommendations

If you play in an wood bat league and need a high quality wood bat–that something like 1 out of 5 MLB players prefer—then the Victus V Cut is a great bet. It isn’t ‘cheap’ for a bat that might break. But, in terms of quality and an outside veneer the pros like you can not do better.

BBCOR V Cut Recommendations
2020 Victus V Cut Review

Victus V Cut bats are all BBCOR approved. Single piece wood bats are allowed in high school. Granted, most high school players, when the game is on the line, prefer the best aluminum and composite BBCOR bats available. But, if you want a pro level bat then the Victus V Cut will be as good as you can find.

Price Check

Comparable Bats

A lot of other wood bat companies have a blemish pile that gets sold. You can check places like Marucci for their pro model bats.

The most like Victus V-Cut program, we think, is Slugger’s MLB Prime line of bats. You can see their selection, directly on their site, here. We also speak about some of the MLB prime bats here.

Compare the Review

Over a year ago we reviewed the Axe Handle bat lineup and were thoroughly impressed. Within that year, Axe Bats made an agreement with Victus Bats and designed the first MLB prototype of the bat.

Victus V Cut Reviews

2020 V Cut Construction

Victus V-Cut bats are pro model bats built with the highest quality of maple wood and the same veneer the pros get. However, they do lack in some sort of cosmetic (non functional) blemish. Sometimes, too, they are cut to the wrong specifications.

You don’t get many custom type options with the V Cuts. They don’t come in a variety of sizes and their availability is never guaranteed. But, they usually have a good offering in a decent looking color.

Bat Sizing Options

Exepct to find the V-Cut bats in the same types of sizing you’ll find most high level wood bats. They come on the half size often (like a 32.5) as well as a focus around a drop 3 weight to length ratio. But, it is wood, and they are much harder to dial in than aluminum or composite bats.
