Twelve bats to rule them all… The 2016 DeMarini Slowpitch Softball Bat lineup may be the best ever. To compliment the legendary composite used in Demarini slowpitch bat barrels, a new aluminum/zinc alloy has been created by DeMarini for the 2016 Slowpitch Softball bat line to take away excess handle flex, add stiffness, and decrease potential vibration. Here is a brief review of the 2016 DeMarini slowpitch bat features.
2016 Flipper Aftermath 1.20 (USSSA, NSA, ISA)
Comes with a 13 inch barrel with an extended sweet spot built into the composite barrel. The handle is a mix of ZnX (aluminum and zinc), heat treated for stiffness and less vibration.
2016 Flipper Aftermath USA (ASA)
12 Inch composite barrel built for one purpose… Smacking 52/300 softballs out of the park. Divergence barrel gives a larger sweet spot. ZnX zinc and aluminium alloy handle for stiffness, and reduced vibration.
