2015 RIP-IT Senior Air Youth Big Barrel Bat Review

RIP-IT is back at it again in 2015 with a brand new lineup of youth big barrel baseball bats. They are known for making high quality products, and their commitment to the players that use their bats is second to none. Here we’ll go over what you can expect from the selection of 2015 RIP-IT youth big barrel bats.2015-Rip-It-Air-Senior-B1510-Main

When you do something right the first time, there generally aren’t many reasons to stir the pot. RIP-IT has kept it simple and created one model bat that is available in a few different options depending on the type of player you are and the type of bat you’re looking for. Minor improvements have been made, but the consistency in quality and performance remains the same.

2015-Rip-It-Senior-Air-5-B1505-2The 2015 RIP-IT Senior Air Youth Big Barrel is a one-piece aluminum bat. Constructed out of their high strength R3 Alloy, this RIP-IT senior league bat will have a stiff and responsive feel similar to that of a more traditional metal bat. The weight of the RIP-IT Senior Air is evenly distributed and allows for ultimate swing speed and bat control at the plate.

A cushioned contact grip has been wrapped around these bats to provide more comfort and reduce the amount of vibration that is fed back to the hands when you don’t quite make the contact you were hoping for. Confidence is also sure to rise every time a ball is well struck and the sweet “ping” sound echoes through the park.2015-Rip-It-Senior-Air-8-B1508-2

RIP-IT will be offering their 2015 Senior Air youth big barrel bat in four different options. You’ve got the -5,  -8 and -10 with a 2 ⅝” barrel diameter, and you’ve also got a -10 model with a 2 ¾” monster barrel. For the power hitter who can whip the extra weight through the zone, the -8 will be your ticket to the top of all offensive categories. Need something a little lighter for that little player with big heart? Whether you go with the standard 2 ⅝” barrel or the bigger 2 ¾” barrel, the -10 RIP-IT Senior Air youth big barrel has got you covered!

It’s obvious RIP-IT has taken their time and made a youth big barrel bat they can stand behind, but their main concern isn’t so much in whether or not they love their product; their focus is on providing the customer with a great experience and 100% confidence in their purchase. That’s why RIP-IT not only offers a 400 day warranty with unlimited replacements for bats that stop performing to their full potential, they proudly extend their “Love it or return it” policy to all products that they carry.

2015 DeMarini SF7 Slowpitch Softball Bat

demarini-sf7-softball-bat-wtdxsf7-15

2015 DeMarini SF7 Slowpitch Softball Bat

The 2015 DeMarini SF7 is a great choice for the softball player looking for a two-piece, hybrid slowpitch softball bat. DeMarini utilizes their X10 material to create a powerful, double-wall barrel. This alloy material is structurally controlled to expand the sweet spot of the barrel and create extremely thin walls that are long-lasting. With the X10 barrel, you can expect more of the classic feel and sound of bats that have won the support and dedication of DeMarini enthusiasts over the years.

The handle of the SF7 is made from DeMarini’s C6 Composite material. C6 composite has a wide weave which helps to make the handle flexible and responsive. DeMarini has placed their N2M End Cap at the top of the barrel to increase the comfort factor of the 2015 SF7. The end cap helps to dampen vibration and sustain power that would have ultimately been lost due to making poor contact. This will help to make each hit have a more solid feel, and will allow some forgiveness for those times you don’t quite square up the ball.

DeMarini’s sticky, low profile Thrasher Grip can also be found on the SF7. This grip provides a comfortable feel and aids in bat control. The 2015 SF7 is evenly balanced, and a great slowpitch bat selection for the player who is looking for optimal bat speed through the hitting zone. Aside from all these great features, the DeMarini SF7 is approved for play in multiple associations which include ASA, USSSA, NSA, ISA and ISF. A 12 month manufacturer’s warranty is also included for your peace of mind.

2015 DeMarini Insane Baseball Bat Review

2015 DeMarini Insane

2015 DeMarini Insane Baseball Bat

The 2015 DeMarini Insane Baseball Bat is going to be one of the hottest single piece bats available, giving off mad pop and INSANE power! The BBCOR version comes in a slick white and green design, while the Youth Big Barrel and Youth editions come in a blacked out style. Staying true to their commitment of providing the most innovative and high-performing bats on the market, DeMarini has applied technological advancements from top to bottom in construction and material that help improve upon last year’s model.

The Insane is crafted using their own SC4 Alloy material. SC4 Alloy is a very durable and sturdy aluminum. It is also thickness tuned, providing hitters with an optimal feel and elite performance capabilities. Built as a single wall and packed with a wicked sweet spot, the Insane can be used by contact and power hitters alike.

The Low Profile D End Cap on this bat is scientifically tuned to absorb vibration while maximizing power, all the while keeping a balanced and light feel. The Low Pro cap also redirects contact energy back into the barrel’s sweet spot, giving this green machine trampoline effect that results in mad pop. Lastly, this bat comes with a standard knob and comfortable performance grip.

The Insane is DeMarini’s top of the line single wall bat. It’s advanced materials place it above the 2014 Uprising Baseball Bat, however; it is not as advanced as the multi-piece BBCOR bats that DeMarini has to offer. The Insane is also decently priced and has very good durability compared to its peers.

Below are all the 2015 editions of the Insane Baseball Bat from DeMarini and the leagues they can be used in:

2015 DeMarini Insane BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz (2 ⅝”) – High School/Collegiate Baseball

2015 DeMarini Insane Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat -9oz (2 ⅝”) – Senior League/Travel Baseball

2015 DeMarini Insane Youth Baseball Bat -12oz (2 ¼”) – Little League/Youth Baseball

2015 DeMarini Vendetta Fastpitch Softball Bat

Say hello to the new 2015 DeMarini Vendetta. New and improved from last year, the Vendetta is primed for a dominant 2015 campaign.

2015-DeMarini-Vendetta-Fastpitch-SoftballDeMarini incorporates their Half + Half, Single Wall Barrel Design that performance matches the barrel and the handle to create optimum weighting for mad pop during impact. The barrel is constructed with Paradox Composite material, which is a more intense composite that helps the bat perform soft and strong, so the Vendetta smoothly rips the softball to the fence with a more responsive sweet spot. The D-Lite Handle is a version of the D-Fusion handle you see on the 2015 CF7 lineup and, although it’s not quite to that performance level, still significantly limits the harsh feedback and vibration that can occur from those non-sweet spot hits. The handle is also made out of C6 Composite material, redirecting contact energy right back into the barrel for significant trampoline. This trampoline effect is what’s going to turn singles into doubles and doubles into home runs!

Some other features of the Vendetta include the 2 ¼” barrel diameter, standard D molded end cap and knob, and sweet performance grip wrapped around the handle. The Vendetta is 1.20 BPF approved and is certified for play by USSSA, ASA, NSA, ISA and ISF softball associatons. This bat is also available in a drop -10 (High School/Youth) and a drop -12 (Youth) length to weight ratio.

In the scheme of things, the Vendetta for fastpitch is a great bat at a great price. It’s above the 2014 Bustos and just below the 2015 CF7 in terms of performance capability. If you’re wanting performance without going top tier, this bat is worth serious consideration.

2015 DeMarini NVS Vexxum Baseball Bat Review

One of the best aluminum barrel bats in the game, DeMarini‘s NVS Vexxum baseball bat is back for the 2015 campaign and ready to steal the show from the batter’s box!

2015 DeMarini NVS Vexxum Baseball Bat - Available at CheapBats.com

2015 DeMarini NVS Vexxum Baseball Bat – Available at CheapBats.com

While the new orange paint job is an awesome look, the best part of the X12 Alloy Barrel is the power and strength that it offers, while still keeping a very light swing weight. The X12 Alloy is one of the best aluminum materials in the game, giving it ridiculous pop to combine with the nice sweet spot. The barrel is connected to the C6 Composite Handle, which is a wider weave pattern giving hitters better handle stability and great responsiveness. Another great feature is the Low Profile D End Cap, which redirects energy back to the sweet spot for increased distance with every hit. Using the Half & Half Design, DeMarini performance matches the handle and the barrel to maximize energy burst upon contact.

An important thing to know about this bat is the NVS Barrel Design does make for a smaller barrel, but it doesn’t sacrifice the sweet spot’s ability and the power that comes with it. DeMarini does this to give hitters amazing bat speed going through the hitting zone so they can consistently stay on time with the ball.

I was able to jump in the batting cage with the 2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR, along with the 2015 CF7 and 2015 Voodoo Overlord FT. I was thoroughly impressed with the extremely light feel on the Vexxum, which had a noticeably lighter swing weight than the CF7 and the Voodoo. The Vexxum Grip also felt great and I was able to drive the ball effectively, with the great energy transfer inside the barrel obviously making a difference. The C6 handle on this bat, though, is not as effective at limiting vibration as the D-Fusion handle on the CF7 and the Voodoo. Lastly, the composite barrel on the CF7 is a notch above the aluminum on this NVS and the Voodoo, but the CF7 is also the most expensive of the bunch.

Bottom Line: For the price, the NVS is a great buy, giving you a top notch bat with incredible bang for your buck.

Below are all the 2015 editions of the Vexxum NVS Baseball Bat from DeMarini and the leagues they’re meant for:

2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz (2 ⅝”) – High School/Collegiate Baseball

2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS Senior League Baseball Bat -5oz (2 ⅝”) – Senior League/Travel Baseball

2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat -10oz (2 ⅝”) – Senior League/Travel Baseball

2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat -10.5oz (2 ¾”) – Senior League/Travel Baseball

2015 DeMarini Vexxum NVS Youth Baseball Bat -12oz (2 ¼”) – Little League/Youth Baseball

2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT Baseball Bat Review

2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT Baseball Bat - Available at CheapBats.com!

2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT Baseball Bat – Available at CheapBats.com!

Cheapbats.com was fortunate to get an early opportunity to swing the 2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT. While taking hacks with this high-tech piece of modern sport technology, we noticed a little bit of heaviness in the barrel as far as balance is concerned. Our power hitters loved the extra meat in the bat however, and couldn’t find anything but complementary things to say about its ability to drive the ball with power. The X12 Alloy in the Voodoo Overlord baseball bat barrel is made of DeMarini’s hottest and most durable metal materials, making sure anyone who buys a DeMarini Overlord won’t feel like they got a lemon of a two-piece alloy bat.

Vibration in the 2015 Voodoo is virtually non existent, as the two-piece bats from DeMarini have not only evolved to make unpleasant feedback basically disappear, but they have also utilized it by redirecting any loss of energy back into the sweet spot of the barrel so that you create maximum force from every swing. The Demarini Voodoo baseball bat has had every detail on it gone through with a fine tooth comb. Starting with the ION-V End Cap, DeMarini has created it’s own vibration dampening design that sends energy directly to the barrel so you don’t lose any power. On the opposite end of the baseball bat is the DeMarini D-Fusion FT Handle. Just like the end cap, the handle drastically reduces any vibration while using the rebounding shock waves from the impact to force that energy back into the sweet spot of the barrel, making it one of the most technologically efficient bats in the game.

Always looking to find more power in their baseball bats, DeMarini employed a Flame Tempering treatment that melds the barrel and handle together for a stiffer bond and greater performance. Also worth mentioning is the RCK knob. The knob has a rounded edge that felt great, and prevented a lot of potential blisters from forming on the bottom hand. All and all, we at Cheapbats.com really like the new Overlord. It would be a great addition to any player who can swing a beefy barrel.

Below are all the 2015 editions of the Voodoo Overlord FT Baseball Bat from DeMarini and the leagues they’re meant for:

2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz (2 ⅝”) – High School/Collegiate

2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT Senior League Baseball Bat -5oz (2 ⅝”)- Senior League/Travel

2015 DeMarini Voodoo Overlord FT Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat -9oz (2 ⅝”) – Senior League/Travel

2015 DeMarini CF7 Baseball Bat Review

Committed to making the best baseball bats in the game, DeMarini never leaves any doubts in regards to their product performance on the field. That’s where I introduce you to the 2015 CF7, crafted by true pros and made with incredible technology that lasts.

demarini-wtdxcfx-15-baseball-bat

2015 DeMarini CF7 Baseball Bat

The CF7 Baseball Bat is constructed with the Paradox Plus+ Composite Barrel, using compact carbon to maximize strength while still keeping the barrel light. That’s Demarini giving hitters exactly what they want: a strong bat with a light swing weight. The paradox composite material also gets used in the handle, where it’s combined with a thermo-fused taper, creating the famous D-Fusion FT Handle. The D-Fusion, just like last year, will eliminate vibration to the hands and redirect energy right back to the barrel for a ridiculous trampoline effect. DeMarini has taken it a step further in 2015 by adding the FT (Flame Tempered) Treatment, fusing the handle to the barrel for an even stiffer feel than ever before.

The Low Pro End Cap is a dual density flap cap, crafted to optimize and maintain an ultimate feel throughout while still playing to the balanced swing weight consistency. Similar to the handle, this end cap will redirect energy right back to the barrel upon contact, increasing the power and distance behind your hits! The RCK knob anatomically fits to your hands, giving you the comfort needed to perform at your highest potential. Lastly, the 2015 DeMarini’s come with a rotation index, giving you the instruction you need to properly rotate your bat to extend its life and increase durability.

I had the privilege of jumping in the batting cage with the BBCOR edition of the 2015 CF7, along with some of the other new release BBCOR bats, and I have to say that you can definitely tell the upgraded D-Fusion handle makes a big difference. I felt next to no sting in my hands no matter where the ball impacted the barrel. For example, the 2015 Vexxum NVS has a lot of great features, but its C6 composite handle is a step behind the D-Fusion handle that’s equipped on both the CF7 and the 2015 Voodoo Overlord FT.

2015-Demarini-CF7-Youth-Big-Barrel-CFX-15-2

Feel the CF7 Power. Get yours today at CheapBats.com!

Another thing I noticed was how high-performing the paradox composite barrel was on the CF7. It plays soft and strong, consistently driving the ball further than I expected. The Voodoo Overlord FT and the Vexxum NVS both have aluminum barrels, and while their performance is still outstanding, they weren’t quite at the same performance level of the CF7 because of the lack of composite material. Let’s just be honest; composite material goes a long way… literally!

Below are all the 2015 editions of the CF7 Baseball Bat from DeMarini and the leagues they’re approved for:

2015 DeMarini CF7 BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz (2 ⅝”) – High School/Collegiate Baseball

2015 DeMarini CF7 Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat -8oz (2 ⅝”) – Senior League/Travel Baseball

2015 DeMarini CF7 Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat -10oz (2 ⅝”) – Senior League/Travel Baseball

2015 Rip It BBCOR Bat Review

Rip It made a big bang in 2014 with the release of their BBCOR bats, making the new 2015’s highly anticipated. Rip It seems to have lived up to that challenge as we introduce the 2015 BBCOR Air and the 2015 BBCOR Air Elite!

2015-Rip-It-BBCOR-Air-3-B1503A-2

2015 Rip It Air BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz B1503A

The 2015 Rip It Air BBCOR Baseball Bat is constructed with a 1-piece design, made with 100% R3 Alloy material. The barrel is made with Rip It’s famous Rifle Barrel Technology, where excess weight is removed inside of the barrel to reduce the unnecessary thickness of the walls. This method gives the bat a lighter, balanced feel without sacrificing any strength or durability. Speaking of this bat being balanced, that’s also due to the Very Low MOI, where Rip It efficiently and precisely distributes the weight throughout the bat to keep the weighting even. Lastly, the Rip It Air has comfortable Contact Grip on the handle, limiting sting and keeping your hands highly reactive!

 

2015-Rip-It-BBCOR-Elite-3-B1503E-2

2015 Rip It Air Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat -3oz B1503E

Now let’s talk about the top notch option, the 2015 Rip It Air Elite BBCOR Baseball Bat. This bat is made as a 2-piece Hybrid, where Rip it connects a composite handle to an aluminum alloy barrel. The R3 Composite Handle gives the bat a very sturdy feel, while limiting vibration to the hands and redirecting that contact energy back to the R3 Rifle Alloy Barrel’s sweet spot for insane trampoline effect! The Rip It Air Elite also has the Rifle Barrel Technology, just like the Rip It Air listed above, which is the process of reducing unnecessarily thick walls to lighten the bat’s weighting for more of a balanced feel. Another thing that makes this Air Elite so balanced is the Ultra Low MOI, an upgrade over the Air’s Very Low MOI, that makes this stick extremely balanced with an even swing weight going through the hitting zone. Capping everything off is the Contact Grip, keeping your hands comfortable and eliminating that unwanted sting and vibration.

 

Which one is the bat for you? Well, that just comes down to a personal preference on cost. They are both great bats, but if you are willing to pay the extra $100 to get the Air Elite then you get more of an upgraded edition of its counterpart, the Air. Nonetheless, if you buy Rip It, you’re sure to enjoy mad pop and great performance!

 

Both of these beasts are BBCOR certified (legal for High School and NCAA) and are supplied with both a 400 day manufacturer’s warranty and a 30 day “Love It or Return It” policy.
