For fastpitch softball players during the 2013 season, no bat was as highly acclaimed as the DeMarini CF5. This bat was often sold out for many retailers around the country and is currently available at a closeout price.
While DeMarini has released a new line of 2014 bats including the CF6, the CF5 is a perfect bat to get for next season. What are some of the best features of this bat and why would it be a great addition to your bat bag?
The DeMarini CF5 bat comes with a -10oz. weight drop and currently comes in a 33 inch model. This bat was constructed with two pieces of composite material and was designed to give you a balanced swing throughout, allowing for the quickest speed through the zone. The actual composite material DeMarini used with this bat was the TR3 F.L.O., which is also known as Fused Layer Optimized. This material is one of the lightest available to DeMarini and because of that, is one of their lightest models. The TR3 F.L.O. material was created after fusing together carbon fibers, making a lighter, but durable material.
One thing DeMarini bats are known for is the Half and Half technology used to combine their multiple part bats. This technology silences the feedback you would get from many other bats and this also creates a massive sweet spot that will allow you to hit the gaps with ease. The end cap the CF5 was made with is Geo and the main task for this end cap is to stiffen up the barrel and prevent energy from leaving the bat from this area. By keeping all the energy in the bat, you are getting extra power with each swing.
The DeMarini CF5 bat is complete with a black, white, red and grey color scheme that allows it stand out when leaning on the fence of your bench. It also has a 2 ¼” barrel diameter and is approved for use in many leagues around the country including ASA, ISF, ISA and NSA. The bat comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty and is hot out of the wrapper, making it perfect for spring ball.
