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!

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. Here is a brief review of the 2016 DeMarini slowpitch bat features.

2016 Flipper Aftermath 1.20 (USSSA, NSA, ISA)

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.

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.

Lighter than the drop 8, stronger than the drop 10’s… The CF8 drop 9 gives you the best of both worlds.

The CF8 -9 is recommended for the High School or College fastpitch softball player.

A CF8 made for lefty slappers? That’s correct!

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.
