The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane has been more popularly called, “The Next Real Generation Of Voodoo”. This baseball bat has all the great features that baseball players and reviewers have come to love and know. The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane baseball bat is an end-loaded bat and is created for players who are a bit more advanced in their sport and utilize their power to up their performance (click here to see Best BBCOR Bats of 2017). Knowing this, the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane is not for all baseball players. I suggest this magnificent baseball bat for a player who fits in one or more of the categories listed below:
- The baseball player that is after a bat that is up and raring to go right out of packaging.
- A player in the BBCOR space that requires a heavy swing bat to maximize their hitting power.
- A baseball player that does not have an issue with letting loose with their swing power or speed.
- The baseball player who utilizes their hitting power each time and does not rely on other methods to up their game.
- The baseball player that is said to be one of the better players to be found around the field.
Where to Buy the 2017 Voodoo Insane?
This bat no longer has a required minimum price set by the manufacturer. As such, major vendors tend to lower the price these days. But, as always, the best place to do some price checks is on eBay. Many major manufacturers use that avenue to unload their inventory. To get the best deal, I suggest you track a few auctions in early October.
We all know that the right equipment can help make or break our performance in our game, however, it is important to remember to not completely rely upon your equipment to play to your top advantage. Each player has their own set of strengths and weaknesses and therefore, differing equipment can often assist in improving a player's strengths compared to their weaknesses. Your equipment can take you far, however, you must know when to “play” to your strengths with equipment compared to that of yourself. In so saying, this is a remarkable baseball bat, however, the 2017 DeMarini Vooddoo Insane is not meant for all athletes. Depending upon your own set of strengths and weaknesses will depend if this bat is going to help or hurt your performance. I suggest this baseball bat is NOT right for you if any of the following apply:
- If you are a hitter who has a preference for a lighter swing baseball bat or for balanced bat.
- If you are a hitter who prefers the feel of a two-piece composite baseball bat when it connects with the ball.
- If you are a player with preference to the larger barrel bat for highest swing weight possible.
- If you are a player with preference to the power and feel of the single-piece stick baseball bat.
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane versus The 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Raw
Both, the 2016 DeMarini Voodoo Raw baseball bat and the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane baseball bat have a lot in common. Both bats are made for the better athlete and are considered hybrid bats that are both end-loaded, two-piece bats. Both of these bats offer legitimate, off the scale performance for the player at every pitching speed. This is mainly due to the manufacturing of the barrel. You have the option on both of these models for customization to fit you better through the DeMarini's Customization Site. The “Insane” and the “Raw” both have tapered knobs as well.
With these bats having so much in common, you maybe asking what are the differences? Well, one big one is the change in colors, along with the upgraded alloy material that it is manufactured out of. Even with this upgrade, keep in mind that it will not cause much of a difference in the “Insane” since it is a end-loaded bat. The baseball bat that will show the difference in the upgraded material is the 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Balance baseball bat.
The 2017 DeMarini Voodoo Insane Sizing Guide
It is important to keep in mind that the 2017 “Insane” is only made for the BBCOR size (check out top BBCOR Bats here). This may have you feeling a bit down, however, it is great to find out that DeMarini has also brought out a full line of balanced Voodoo bats for 2017. The “Voodoo Balanced” comes in numerous models and sizes to fit just about any player. The “Voodoo Balanced” might be the better bat for you compared to the “Insane” due to it being for high performance baseball players.
Comparable Baseball Bats
Finding a comparable baseball to the “Insane” is not something you will have tons to choose from. The most popular, comparable baseball bat on the market would be the 2016 Easton Hybrid – XL. The “Easton Hybrid” is also end-loaded and a hybrid bat that comes with an over-sized barrel. This bat will also set you back a few bucks but you pay for what you get when it comes to baseball bats and those who take the game seriously, won't blink an eye at what they paid for the bat once they play a game with their new equipment.
