2018 DeMarini CFX Fastpitch Softball Bat Lineup

2018 DeMarini CFX Fastpitch Softball Bat is made with a 2-piece bat construction, while being crafted with 100% Paraflex composite material. Paraflex gives you 22% stronger composite when being compared to the Paradox composite that DeMarini used in previous years, which allows the bats to be built with a more precise weight distribution. The 3Fusion Technology is what makes the CF bats top notch, year in and year out, as the barrel-to-handle connection gives the bat an overall great feel, while also elimination unwanted sting/vibration energy from reaching the hands.
The CFX has six different models this year, compared to 7 last year. The model that was eliminated was the Hope -10, which was a mimic model of the regular Balanced -10, but with a purple color scheme that had a percentage of the proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. However, they have scrapped that model this year, and are just going with the 6 models. They are all listed below, with specs and images, so you can figure out which CFX is the one for you!

USA Bat Standard – Youth BBCOR Bats are coming!

USABat Standard

USA Bat Standard Baseball Bats

First College, next was High School, now at the Pony and Little League levels we will see a Youth BBCOR Bat!

Starting in 2018, to be legal for play in Little League, Pony, Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth, AABC, AAU, Dixie baseball, your bat will need the USABat stamp on it.

USABat Standard baseball bats will go on sale in the Fall of 2017. Major brands like Easton, DeMarini, Louisville Slugger, and Rawlings are already hard at work on these new youth baseball bats with the USABat stamp.

USSSA vs USA Bat Standard

Key USABat Standard Baseball Bat Facts

  • Approved YBBCOR 2 5/8” barrels will be legal for all ages (14 and under) in Little League, Babe Ruth, Cal Ripken, PONY, Dixie, AABC, AAU.
  • The 2 5/8” big barrel lengths will be much shorter than the current 2 5/8” 1.15bpf barrels used in today’s game due to the performance regulations put in place.
  • All current youth baseball bats will continue to be legal in the above mentioned organizations through December 31st, 2017
  • 1.15bpf bats will NOT be grandfathered in for the 2018 season.
  • The goal is to make youth bats perform like a wood bat.
  • There will be no limit to how light a bat can be, which should be helpful to younger players.
  • According to USA Baseball, the governing body that oversaw the research and ratification of the new USABat standard, this change is being made for “integrity of the game”, and not “safety” reasons, as it claims “Youth baseball continues to be one of the safest of all sports”.
  • USSSA, which governs nearly all travel ball teams, is not affected by the change to the USABat Standard, and currently has no plans to change their bats

Long story short, everyone who plays Little League, Pony, and the other organizations mentioned above will need to buy a new bat starting in 2018. These bats will perform like wood bats. Baseballs will likely not be hit as far with these bats, BUT the larger diameter barrel on the baseball bats can and will make the baseball easier to hit for many players.

2016 DeMarini Slowpitch Softball Bats

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.

Bat Comparison: 2016 Easton Mako vs 2016 DeMarini CF8

DeMarini and Easton have just released all-new baseball bats for 2016, which leaves some room for questions – for example – what’s the difference between the 2016 Easton Mako and the 2016 DeMarini CF8? We’re going to break it down with each particular type of bat, from BBCOR to Youth Big Barrel to Youth to Junior Big Barrel.

BBCOR -3oz Comparison:

Bat Duel - 2016 Easton Mako vs. 2016 DeMarini CF8

2016 Bat Duel: Easton Mako vs DeMarini CF8

DEMARINI CF8 BBCOR BASEBALL BAT – The CF8 BBCOR is constructed with a 2-Piece Design and crafted with 100% Paradox +Plus Composite material. This CF8 features the D-Fusion 2.0 Handle, which is new and improved from last year with even better energy transfer and less vibration/sting felt in the hands. The new grip is nice and tacky, while the bat overall just feels like it’s made for champions. It’s flawlessly put together with a great combo of balance & power, not to mention the insane pop it has once you’ve passed the 200+ hit break-in period.

EASTON MAKO BBCOR BASEBALL BATS – Easton has not one, not two, not three (LeBron?), but FOUR Mako BBCOR Bats for 2016! They got the balanced Mako, the end-loaded Mako XL, the balanced Mako Torq, and the end-loaded Mako Torq XL. All of these bats are made with a 2-Piece Design using the patented barrel-to-handle ConneXion piece, which connects the 100% TCT Composite barrel and handle. The energy transfer is fantastic and the bat is made to perform at this highest level for the most elite hitters. The balanced Mako and the end-loaded Mako XL have 1.2mm Hyperskin Bat Grip, while the balanced Mako Torq and the end-loaded Mako Torq XL have a 1.0mm Torq Tac Bat Grip. The Torq Taq is a HUGE improvement, as last year the Torq bats had a gauze grip that was not very popular amongst hitters. Having a great stock grip is very important on Torq bats because it’s more difficult to re-grip due to the rotating part of the handle that’s closest to the knob. With the four different Mako BBCOR models, Easton really does make a bat for every hitter. Balanced or end-loaded – Torq handle or not – Easton has you covered.

Youth Big Barrel, Youth, & Junior Big Barrel Comparison:

All of the CF8 & Mako Youth Big Barrel, Youth, & Junior Big Barrel Bats (except the Mako Junior Big Barrel) are constructed with the same materials as the BBCOR, all being 2-Piece crafted with their own brand of composite (CF8 with Paradox +Plus, Mako with TCT). Just like the BBCOR, Easton has more models to choose from due to the Mako Torq being available in most sizes. Below is a list of the models for each bat:

Youth Big Barrel:

2016 DeMarini CF8 2 5/8″ -5oz  -8oz  10oz 

2016 DeMarini CF8 2 3/4″ -10oz 

2016 Easton Mako XL 2 5/8″ -5oz  -8oz 

2016 Easton Mako 2 5/8″  -10oz 

2016 Easton Mako 2 3/4″ -10oz 

2016 Easton Mako Torq 2 5/8″ -5oz  -8oz 

2016 Easton Mako Torq 2 3/4″ -10oz 

Youth:

2016 DeMarini CF8 2 1/4″ -11oz 

2016 Easton Mako XL 2 1/4″ -10oz

2016 Easton Mako 2 1/4″ -11oz -12oz

2016 Easton Mako Torq 2 1/4″ -10oz

Junior Big Barrel:

2016 DeMarini CF8 2 3/4″ -11oz

2016 Easton Mako 2 3/4″ -12oz

It’s amazing how these two brands, which are HUGE in the baseball world, have such a different approach. You have DeMarini, as always, staying with their traditional models and improving upon them each and every year. Then you have Easton, who probably has as many bat models themselves as the rest of the bat world has combined, continuing to strive for new ways to engineer greatness. While some of you buy simply because you have a name brand preference, it’s tough to say that one is better than the other. No matter which way you go – know this – your friends won’t have a better bat than you.

2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat Review

Ladies, the “Bat of Choice” from DeMarini is back for more! The ALL-NEW 2016 CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat lineup brings more balance, tech & performance to your game than ever before. As always, DeMarini brings you cutting-edge technology that gives you some of the most popular bats in the game, making the 2016 lineup no different. We’re going to go bat-by-bat and breakdown all of the details for the highly anticipated CF8 fastpitch series. Here we go…

2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat -8oz WTDXCF8-16

2016 DeMarini CF8 -8oz

2016 DeMarini CF8 -8oz

Barrel: Paradox Plus Composite

Handle: Paradox Plus Composite

End Cap: Low Pro

The drop 8 is the heaviest bat in the CF8 lineup, giving those stronger players that can create a ton of swing speed the bat they deserve to crush the ball over the fence, time and time again. This is the only bat in the lineup that has the Paradox Plus Composite Handle, as it’s a bit heavier to help give power hitters the max pop that they need. This CF8 -8 is going to be best for players in College or Pro fastpitch softball.

 

2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat -9oz WTDXCFF-16

2016 DeMarini CF8 -9oz

2016 DeMarini CF8 -9oz

Barrel:  Paradox Plus Composite

Handle: D-Fusion 2.0 Composite

End Cap: Low Pro

Lighter than the drop 8, stronger than the drop 10’s… The CF8 drop 9 gives you the best of both worlds. If you’re a power hitter that prefers a bat that gives you a bit more control and a slightly faster swing speed than the drop 8 would give you, then the drop 9 may be your match! The CF8 -9 is recommended for the High School or College fastpitch softball player.

 

2016 DeMarini CF8 INSANE Fastpitch Softball Bat End Loaded -10oz WTDXCFI-16

2016 DeMarini CF8 Insane -10oz

2016 DeMarini CF8 Insane -10oz

Barrel: Paradox Plus Composite

Handle: D-Fusion 2.0 Composite

End Cap: Low Pro

Of the four different drop 10 models, the CF8 Insane is the only one that’s designed for power hitters. Made end loaded, the Insane gives you more mass at the end of the barrel to increase hitting distances. This insanely good bat is made for High School players looking to pack a punch to their swing.

 

 

2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat Balanced -10oz WTDXCFP-16

2016 DeMarini CF8 Balanced -10oz

2016 DeMarini CF8 Balanced -10oz

Barrel: Paradox Plus Composite

Handle: D-Fusion 2.0 Composite

End Cap: Low Pro

The most popular CF8 is this balanced drop 10. Made with a balanced swing weight, this -10 is for the player that prefers more swing speed and bat control while going through the hitting zone. Swing with confidence, swing the balanced drop 10.

 

 

2016 DeMarini CF8 HOPE Fastpitch Softball Bat -10oz WTDXCFH-16

2016 DeMarini CF8 Hope -10oz

2016 DeMarini CF8 Hope -10oz

Handle: D-Fusion 2.0 Composite

End Cap: Dish

The CF8 Hope fastpitch softball bat is a limited edition with only 2,000 bat models being distributed. DeMarini has a partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and the Hope drop 10 represents that. A portion of the proceeds for these bats gets donated to breast cancer research, so this bat is beneficial both on and off the field.

 

2016 DeMarini CF8 SLAPPER Fastpitch Softball Bat -10oz WTDXCFA-16

2016 DeMarini CF8 Slapper -10oz

2016 DeMarini CF8 Slapper -10oz

Barrel: Paradox Plus Composite

Handle: D-Fusion 2.0 Composite

End Cap: Low Pro

A CF8 made for lefty slappers? That’s correct! With an extremely long 14” barrel length, the CF8 Slapper drop 10 provides maximum plate coverage and is weighted more to the hands to provide optimal barrel control and manipulation. However, you have versatility with the Slapper because you can also use it as a lighter swinging drop 10 to get ahead of the ball and drive it to the gaps. Hit where you please, hit the CF8 Slapper!

 

2016 DeMarini CF8 Fastpitch Softball Bat -11oz WTDXCFS-16

2016 DeMarini CF8 -11oz

2016 DeMarini CF8 -11oz

Barrel: Paradox Plus Composite

Handle: D-Fusion 2.0 Composite

2015 DeMarini Slowpitch Softball Bat Lineup

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, not because Rudolph’s footprints are still on your roof, but because DeMarini’s new slow-pitch bats have finally been revealed and are available for pre-order online at CheapBats.com! Below is some informative details on each bat, giving you a good idea as to which one would be best for you.

 

2015 Flipper Series

The Flippers are made as hybrid bats, combining composite in the barrel and alloy in the handle. The composite barrels are made with Divergence Composite, which maximizes the extended sweet spot on the long barrel designs. These bats are still easy to control thanks to the stiff SC4 Alloy Handle, preventing them from being to whippy while they’re being ripped through the hitting zone. DeMarini also incorporates the Dish End Cap, which specializes in taking that contact energy that tries to escape and redirects it right back into the sweet spot, which creates a trampoline effect that significantly increases the distances of hits.

The Stadium

Chris Larsen’s signature model for 2015, this Stadium is made for the hitters in the 3-5 spots, ready to stuff the stat sheet with RBI’s. The barrel is 12″ long, constructed with S. One Composite material to play soft and strong with great power and durability in the sweet spot. Just like the Flippers, the Stadium is a hybrid bat with the SC4 Alloy Handle, which will eliminate vibration and optimize the overall feel of the bat. The Big D End Cap is made to handle a ton of contact energy and redirect it back to the sweet spot during the moment of impact for insane trampoline. Certified by 1.20 BPF, the CL22 Stadium is approved for USSSA, NSA & ISA.

The Juggy

It’s back! The Juggy, returning after a dominant 2014 campaign, is made better than ever for 2015! No hybrid build here as the Juggy is made as a 100% composite bat with the Stacked Composite Barrel & the TRS F.L.O. Composite Handle. It’s tough to beat the quality of a composite on composite bat as it is, but DeMarini uses some of the best quality composites in the game and this Juggy is a great example of that. Once you break it in, this should be one of your all-time favorites. Capped off (literally) with the Big D End Cap and a 12″ barrel length, the Juggy is ASA approved.

The Mercy

There’s nothing merciful about this nasty stick. Designed to crush, this bat is hot out of the wrapper. The stiff 1-Piece feel & 4.ONE Composite Barrel offers the perfect combination for blazing bat speed, the Mercy brings some serious, unapologetic firepower to the diamond. Take heed outfielders, the Mercy doesn’t take prisoners. The Clutch 2 End Cap should help add a few feet to contact made in the sweet spot, as it redirects impact energy right back into the sweet spot of the barrel.

“How much should I rotate my bat between hits?”

“How do I properly break-in my composite bat?”

“What is DeMarini’s Rotation Index?”

These are all great questions that I am going to answer for you!

An example of the 4 hitting surfaces of the DeMarini CF6. Each turn would be referred to as a “quarter turn”.

First off, let’s talk about rotating your bat properly. The ideal thing to do is, after each time you swing and make contact with the ball, rotate your bat by doing a “quarter turn”. This allows you to have 4 solid hits on 4 different spots on the face of the barrel before returning to the original hitting spot you started with. So, if you are at batting practice and hit 100 balls, each quarter part of the barrel is only absorbing 25 hits and ensures the bat lasts as long as it should. It can be tough to remember to do that, especially when you’re at batting practice, but just do the best that you can.

Now, let’s go over how to properly break-in a composite bat. Unlike aluminum/alloy bats, composite isn’t always so “hot right out of the wrapper”. Composite bats are hotter 1,000 swings in, so it’s understandable that the new standards force bat manufacturers to leave a little breathing room to be fair. So, in order to get your bat ready for game time, you should go through a break-in process to make sure you maximize your bats potential when it counts. Here is a suggested procedure to follow…

  • Hit 100 balls off of a tee

THEN

  • Hit 50 balls from a soft toss (get a coach or teammate to help you out)

THEN

  • Hit 50 balls at batting practice (live pitcher or batting cage)

Also, remember, while doing this break-in process make sure you still do the “quarter turn” between each hit. Once this process is completed your bat will be GAME READY!

Lastly, what is DeMarini’s Rotation Index? Well, it’s pretty much the same thing as the “quarter turn”, as it serves as an easy guide to follow so that you rotate your bat the amount that you are supposed to after each hit. It’s definitely a nice feature that should be taken advantage of.
