The DeMarini CF6 baseball bat is not out yet. We have heard rumors of late this year, but there are no details at all yet of what the bat is, or will be. But, we can sure make a good guess.
Our money is on a 2014 CF6 BBCOR that uses the all new Paradox Composite in both the handle and the barrel of the bat. This is what DeMarini did in the 2014 Fastpitch Softball bat lineup, and there is good reason to believe they will do the same in their baseball bats.
What is Paradox Composite? The new carbon fiber being used in high end Demarini bats for 2014 is both softer and harder. Doesn’t make sense? Let me explain… The way the engineers lay down the sheets of carbon fiber determines the final characteristics of the bat. So, in the barrel, they lay the material to be more flexible, and that allows for more elasticity and trampoline when the bat hits the baseball. In the handle, they lay the sheets down to form a stronger, stiffer feel, which keeps you from losing energy by making the bat “whip” too much (like a golf club).
We absolutely love the way the new Voodoo BBCOR and NVS BBCOR feel, so we are excited to see how the 2014 DeMarini CF6 performs on the baseball field. You can be sure we will have our bat review up as soon as we get our hands on one.
