Look for the Demarini Hope CF5 softball bat to arrive in stores in late April or early May. The regular version of the Demarini CF5 fastpitch softball bat will arrive in June, 2011. It is exactly the same bat but without the special “Hope” graphics
We will post pictures as soon as we have permission from DeMarini.
[Updated March 29th] Demarini has allowed us to show pictures of the new CF5 softball bat. It will use an all new composite that is the strongest and lightest composite material ever in a softball bat. The larger sweetspot from the new composite in the bat handle and barrel should make the 2012 Demarini CF5 the best softball bat ever made.
All of the 2012 Demarini CF5 Softball Bats will sell for $299.95 (with free 2nd day air shipping from CheapBats.com)
