Rated 4 out of 5 by Ballplayer's Dad Hey, Dick's! Let's match in-store promotions to web prices
The DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR 2013 bat was a great choice for my son, a member of his school's ninth grade (freshman) team. Needing a new bat, he informed me that the previous year's models were discounted and he'd be happy with the 2013 model.
We found it for 99.99 on Dick's web site, and we saw that it was available in-store, which is only about 15 minutes away from home ? and we could have it the next day, when I went to shop for it. But arriving there, I discovered that the in-store price was 149.99. So I decided that a few days' wait for shipping was worth the 50 bucks in savings. Returning to the web site, I found that the price had gone back up.
Yes, I understand that bricks-and-mortar carries overhead that Dick's may not have in their web-based business. But Dick's can determine a single, constant price point that works both in-store and for its online customers.
Love the bat, but the shopping experience was a bit frustrating.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Granny DeMarini Vexxum BBCOR Bat
My grandson loves DeMarini Vexxum Bats. He's been playing travel baseball for a few years now and has played the game of baseball since Tball. When he said he needed a new bat I looked a the prices of the current model year. I asked him to sit with me and check out past year models. When we came across this bat he said, Granny I want that one if it comes in a 33. It did. The price was great, and he's one happy baseball player.

So I went from the cheap Easton Typhoon to this bat. This was a night and day difference. The typhoon hurt your hands ridiculously to much, it was daunting to even bunt a ball with that bat. With this bat though, it's like swinging through heaven. Best purchase ever. Tips for bat purchasing: do yourself a favor and higher your spending limit to at least a $100. I know times are hard these days but purchasing a bat that is no good is a bad investment. $150 for this bat is a steal. There is nothing bad about this bat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yankeefan456 Great bat
This bat looks amazing and feels just as good. Its more endloaded for the power hitters, but still pretty well balanced. It has insane pop, and the sweetspot is much bigger than my old bats. All my teammates wanted to use it. I would recommend this bat to anyone
