2017 DeMarini CF Zen Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat 2 3/4″ -10oz WTDXCBZ-17

If you are looking for a bat, possibly for travel ball, that has a 2 3/4″ barrel diameter and a -10oz length to weight ratio, look no further than the 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat (product code: WTDXCBZ-17). This balanced CF Zen Youth Big Barrel Bat is the lightest swinging 2 3/4″ bat on the market without sacrificing barrel size, which is perfect for elite travel ball players. Why is the CF bat much improved over the CF8 bat and other CF bats from previous years? It all starts with the new Paraflex Composite. With 22% stronger carbon fibers compared to the Paradox Plus Composite of years past, DeMarini was able to use a more precise weight distribution to engineer the best composite barrel to meet your needs as a hitter. The D-Fusion 2.0 Handle features a barrel-to-handle connection that reduces vibration and redirects contact energy back into the barrel for a trampoline-like effect that significantly increases the distances of your hits. The combination of the Paraflex Composite Barrel and the D-Fusion 2.0 Handle offer more performance over a larger sweet spot than ever before. The CF Zen in particular is made with a very Balanced Swing Weight, which increases your swing speed and improves your bat control as you whip the bat through the hitting zone. This bat is made in a 28″/18oz, 29″/19oz, 30″/20oz, 31″/21oz, and lastly a 32″/22oz. Get your 2017 DeMarini CF Zen Youth Big Barrel Baseball Bat HERE today!

2017 Easton Mako Beast vs. 2017 Louisville Slugger Prime 917: What’s the Difference?

What’s the difference between the 2017 Easton Mako Beast and the 2017 Louisville Slugger Prime 917?

Bat Battle - Easton Mako Beast vs. Louisville Slugger Prime 917

Bat Battle – Easton Mako Beast vs. Louisville Slugger Prime 917

Well, they both have models ranging from BBCOR for High School/College, to Senior/Youth Big Barrels in both 2 5/8″ and 2 3/4″ barrel diameters, and Youth 2 1/4″ models for little league/dixie/babe ruth as well. But, what is different about them? Well, it’s the composite type, the barrel length, and the barrel-to-handle connection piece.

Let’s start with the composite. Easton uses Thermo Composite Technology (TCT) on the Mako Beast, which is Easton’s top composite material. Louisville Slugger uses MicroForm Composite on the Prime 917, which is an upgrade over the Pure 360 Composite they used in years past. TCT and MicroForm are very similar and comparable, while also being very durable. They each have good pop out of wrapper, but the break-in period is key for the sweet spot to reach its full potential.

Next is the barrel size. The Mako Beast’s barrel length is definitely longer, as Easton made it their goal to create more potent hitting surface and longer barrel lengths on the 2017 line of Mako Beasts. However, even with such a big barrel, the Mako Beast is still pretty balanced, so you’re not going to have an end-heavy bat that slows down your swing speed. The Prime 917 doesn’t have the extended barrel length of the Mako Beast, but the weight distribution with the Prime gives the bat an incredible “feel”, with the sweet spot just as potent as any other bat in the composite game.

Lastly, the barrel-to-handle connection piece. Above mentioned was the incredible “feel” of the Prime 917, but part of that is due to the TRU3 Technology, which connects the Prime 917’s barrel to one side and the handle to the other, without allowing them to touch, which increases flex and also eliminates sting/vibration as much, if not more, than any other bat. This construction gives the Prime 917 a “feel” that no other bat can compare to. However, the Mako Beast is better if you want multi-piece composite, but don’t want so much flex, since Easton’s CXN piece is just a simple barrel-to-handle connection with no separate piece in between. It still kills a good amount of sting/vibration, and has a great feel of its own.

Which is better? That just comes down to personal preference, as they’re both top notch. You really cannot go wrong. Below is each model, or group of models, allowing you to find what you’re looking for.

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.

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.

Anderson Bats: “Proof is at the Plate” Risk-Free Demo Program

Anderson Bat Company has come out with a new program called, “Proof is at the Plate“. This is going to be a big benefit for players as they get to demo a bat for 30 days risk-free. If you don’t like the bat’s performance 30 days (or less) in, then you follow the proper procedure to get a refund or trade the bat in for another new Anderson model. Here’s their statement:

All the hype in the world cannot make a bat perform. The only true way to find out if a bat is right for you is to hit it. Anderson Bat Company was one of the first bat companies to offer a risk free demo program on our bats. We are confident that once you step up to the plate with an Anderson Bat you’ll never want to put it down. We’re SO confident that we’ll allow you to return your bat if you’re not completely satisfied. HOW IT WORKS: So, purchase a new Anderson bat from a participating authorized sporting goods dealer and take it out for a 30 day test drive.

If at any time during this 30 day period (from original date of purchase on receipt) you’re not completely satisfied with your purchase you can follow the necessary steps to get a refund or trade it out for another model. Just give the dealer you bought the bat from a call for instructions on how to handle the situation. Remember, all dealers handle the 30 day demo program differently, so make sure you talk to them about it BEFORE you make your purchase. This is what makes purchasing an Anderson Bat such a wise decision. Not only are our bats the highest in performance, durability and value… now owning one is risk free!

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. Their motto is “simply buy, try and decide.” If you love it, keep it. If you don’t, send it right on back!2015-Rip-It-Air-Senior-BB-B1510B-Main
